Jane Porter is devastated when her long-time boyfriend marries an outsider he has known for a few short weeks and doesn’t even have the decency to tell her first, she has to hear it from her father. But Mike’s new bride is not what she seems and soon takes off, leaving him feeling like a fool and realizing he had made the biggest mistake of his life. The relationship between Mike’s mother and Jane’s father’s deepens as they turn to each other to figure out how to best help their children. Although outside the genre I normally read, this turned out to be a heart-warming story of love, betrayal and forgiveness. The story is told from several viewpoints, detailing each character’s motivations and emotions and was very well written.
Tracking Magic contains five easy to read short stories featuring detective Max Killian. Each case is separate and distinct, told from Max’s perspective. What I really liked about these stories was that while they all had paranormal elements (curses, ghosts, fairies), each case was actually solved by good old-fashioned detective work.
This charming little series is great for when you are short on time but still want something light and entertaining to read.
Executive Lunch is a delightful and engaging book! The plot had plenty of surprises, with excellent attention to technical details without going over the top. The dialogue was realistic and humorous and the entire book just flowed very well, it was hard to put down. The characters were well developed; Sedona is adorable and I love her interactions with her family and friends. She stands up for herself and her antics had me laughing out loud on several occasions!
