I loved this book. No contest, it was my favorite read for the week. As usual, another Davis Bunn story was well written and captivating. The characters were complex, and real, with an unpredictable flow in the action. The setting was timely too, given present day world events. I wasn’t the least bit ready for it to end when it did.
The Cottage on Lighthouse Lane (Miramar Bay Book 5)
Billy Walker is a North Carolina boy whose Hollywood star is beginning to shine. His rough past is in the rear view. Now seeing the world from the back seat of a limousine, Billy has no regrets about what he had to do, and the choices he made, to get there. But all it takes is one death-defying moment for Billy’s world to shift. When an on-set accident leaves him shaken, plagued by haunting dreams, he’s in desperate need of a rest cure. Given keys to a getaway cottage on Lighthouse Lane in Miramar Bay, he’ll regroup, relax, and recover. Yet as Billy’s dreams grow darker and more fearful, his only promise for light is in a stunning, mysterious, and uniquely gifted stranger . . .
And your next act is rewritten . . .
Mimi has never forgotten her tragic childhood in eastern Ukraine. Violence, a vanished family, abandonment, and a hard-won struggle to escape. Miramar Bay couldn’t be a more beautiful or unexpected refuge. In yoga and dance, and imbued with a talent to read the unrestful visions of others, Mimi has a seemingly divine ability to comfort. She may be everything Billy desires, but Mimi knows what Billy needs. He must confront his troubling past—and not just in his dreams. As their connection deepens, Billy finds himself falling in love, and waking up to something he’s never felt before. But when the real world comes calling again, how can he say goodbye to a woman who’s changing his life one illuminating sunrise at a time?
My current read is shaping up to be a favorite as well. One thing I have to say, the story line is not tired and well used. It is fresh as a daisy. Not that there aren’t familiar elements here and there, that’s pretty much unavoidable no matter where your story goes.
This bargain won’t last long, so hurry if you don’t want to miss out.
Beneath the Surface (Dive Team Investigations Book #1)
After a harrowing experience with an obsessed patient, oncology nurse practitioner Leigh Weston needed a change. She thought she’d left her troubles behind when she moved home to Carrington, North Carolina, and took a job in the emergency department of the local hospital. But when someone tampers with her brakes, she fears the past has chased her into the present. She reaches out to her high school friend turned homicide investigator, Ryan Parker, for help.
I’m in Chapter four, the no-brakes part of the story. It’s a little early for a main character to be seriously injured so I will assume the best, for now anyway. The tone of the story tells me things are likely to get a lot worse though.
Join me, it’s a good read.
