In classic Peri Jean style, she does what she can to help, following clues left by the dead, while dealing with her own real-life issues: the failing health of a beloved family member, a new boyfriend, his ex. I love that throughout it all, the author makes certain that Peri Jean stays true to herself no matter where she is or what she’s doing or who she’s around. I know this is terrible, but I kind of hope she never stops smoking.
I became a huge fan of Peri in the first book of this series, and I was relieved to find her unchanged in this book. I do wish that the story had been longer, the mystery less straightforward (this one I actually did figure out before it was revealed), but those were my only druthers. I finished this book in record time because I couldn’t put it down. As I’ve come to expect from Ms. Rhodes, this tale was well-edited, realistic (even in its fiction), and just a fun, entertaining read.
I was offered a free copy for an honest review, but I had already purchased this book because I enjoyed the first one so much.
I "purchased" the first book for free. I was curious about where the story went, with the characters, but hesitated to buy the second book. I'm glad I took the chance. This story helped build up the characters and develop a couple of them a little more fully. And I liked learning about Dean's family. They were rich, but they were still human.
It was a fast read.
I hate to say it, but I have one complaint. That being the length. With characterization this well done I'm dying to find myself back in their world, spending time with these living breathing folk, seeing them struggle and stumble and triumph and fight through all life has to offer. Their relationships, actions and reactions, are amazing. Authentic. I think without a doubt Catie's greatest strength is the ability to create not just well rounded characters, but to show them in relation to each other.
Not to say that is her only strength. The mystery laid out in the Black Opal was very well done. I was back and forth several times on who did it and why, but each time I was sure of myself Catie had a new twist. The review was done marvelously, and without giving too much away, had one of the best Peri trademarked open-mouth-insert-foot moments.
I strongly recommend Black Opal, even if you haven't read Forever Road yet. The situation between Peri and Dean is familiar enough in the beginning I think anyone who's ever been in a relationship will relate, and all the specifics of their back story are revealed layer by layer as the plot unfolds.
"I am Lisette David-Turgeau-Carter. I was Dean's wife for about fifteen years." - yeah, I knew she was a so&so right then.
"Let's get away from the house before you let loose on me." - He already knows her so well after just six months.
"What else could happen to make this tip worse?" - A question you really should never ask yourself. Something worse always happens.
I felt so bad for Dean, between Shayne's disappearance/death and Lisette's infidelity and overall nastiness. No wonder he's so serious. I loved that they worked things out without a lot of unnecessary misunderstandings & she was able to get herself out of trouble in the end.
I look forward to reading more about these two.
