Smashwords book reviews by Deborah Jacques
- The Unquiet Grave
on Dec. 24, 2012
Very well written! Rather than reading a book, I was drawn in by a master storyteller. I felt that I was right there with Caitlin Ross in all of her emotions and activities. Apparently a simple country woman who walked to town for her mail every day and puttered in her garden, then at night played in an Irish band, it turns out that she's actually a bit more than that. Her husband, Timber, works in construction ... and is also more than at first appears. This is a murder mystery with enough twists and character development to keep me enthralled until the storytelling was completed. I highly recommend this book.

This second in the Caitlin Ross series continues to impress with multiple complex characters and action that sweeps you along into the story without becoming overwhelming. The end offers resolution while inviting me along for the next part of the ride, which I find refreshing!!!

While the first book in this series, The Unquiet Grave, drew me in ... this one gripped me. The emotional impact was profound, over and over again, from the miscarriage to Timber's retrieval to Beltane and on. I feel like I know these people and they are my friends.

LOVE this series, LOVE this book! It really gives good background on how the relationship began--a bit rocky, you might say? But what a match. Together, they are definitely stronger than each added to the other. Two strong people, creating something new--which is always a bit scary! Thank you, Katherine! And thank you for your description of how these stories come to be. I'll do my best to be patient as I await the next installment. Hey Caitlin? We're all waiting for you with love.

It was wonderful coming to know Timber a bit better! Where he's come from and how he got to be truly Caitlin's husband and life partner, what motivates him and pushes him, why he puts up with Caitlin's idiosyncrasies, etc. I wasn't drawn into this story as I have been with the others, but that's to be expected with a series of short stories. Well done again, Katherine!
