    Ford Hollingsworth, Republican congressman from Missouri and from a family with a long political history, is coming to terms with his sexuality. When he has a chance encounter one night with Trevor Moga, Ford begins a relationship for the first time that will radically change his life. See, Trevor’s the son of the President of the United States and Dad’s a Democrat.   I expected Trevor and Ford to have the usual dilemmas associated with two powerful political families on opposite sides of the aisle but it wasn’t that kind of story. The focus was on their developing relationship from a more personal perspective. Being in a committed relationship was new for Trevor and Ford hadn’t come out to anyone yet.   Ford […]

    Paige Walker, now a famous actress, returned home to Windfall Island after many years following the eruption of a humiliating scandal. Seeking solitude, forgiveness and a reconnection to her former friends, Maggie and Jessi, she’s also stepped into the mystery regarding the disappearance of Eugenia Stanhope in 1930. Attorney Alec Barclay was engaged by the Stanhope family to investigate and it appears that Paige might be a descendant of Eugenia. To say they got off on the wrong foot at their first encounter is an understatement.   This was a tale of two stories: the first half of the book and the rest. Unfortunately, the first half bored me so bad I almost didn’t make it to the good stuff.   What went […]

    Ginger Dysart is slowly recovering from the loss of her child on top of the disintegration of her ill-advised marriage. Working in the Thunder Point flower shop and being around a network of interesting and supportive women has raised her from a dark abyss. When she “meets” Matt Lacoumette at his sister’s wedding reception, it’s an unlikely encounter between two people rebounding from painful life events.   I loved this story for several reasons. First, Ginger’s descent into severe depression was understandable, presenting a very realistic response to the loss of a child. When her cousin, Ray Anne, steps in and moves her to Thunder Point, it begins an extraordinary healing process that exemplifies the best the community has to offer. The town […]

    Lucy Kendall is reeling from the events that led to the deaths of two people, neither she deliberately planned to kill. As her reflections have her spiralling deep into a depression, Chris Hale, her friend and confidant, is losing patience as he’s anxious for them to locate his diabolical mother and deliver their unique brand of justice. When she receives a terrifying message from him, Lucy reaches the frightening conclusion that he’s missing and possibly in his mother’s clutches.   Lucy’s introspection throughout this story was just as fascinating as the search for Chris after he goes missing. The parallels between her life, Chris’ and Mary Weston were surprising at times as she examined the ongoing debate about nature versus nurture. As Chris […]
