Today, I’m taking the briefest of breaks from reading Book #2 of this series to review Book #1.
This might tell you how much I’m enjoying this series: I’m already disappointed there are only four books so far, there must be more – please make it so!
Sarah leaves her dead-end library job for a remote cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains where she plans to write a book.
Ruth runs away from her abusive husband, taking his illicitly-gained money and his car, and hides out in a remote cabin…yes, you’ve guessed it – the same cabin, only 50 years apart.
The stories of these two women are told in parallel, along with that of Mac, Sarah’s gorgeous but brooding and private neighbour. Both are love stories that will eventually collide in a shocking, macabre manner, involving a ghost and a long-held secret, the unravelling of which brings Sarah and Mac finally together.
It’s hard to define this book: romance, yes. Supernatural, a little. But entertaining, engrossing and delightful, very definitely.
The author has a charming style, with beautiful descriptions, natural dialogue, and fully developed characters you would like to know in real life. Be warned, once you start this book, you will likely be late for every upcoming appointment, and prone to yawning your way through the day because you just had to stay up and finish that chapter. And then the next. And the next.
And then you have to go straight on and buy the next one…
Take a look at WAKE-ROBIN RIDGE HERE – and don’t blame me if you get hooked!
