While the mystery plot kept morphing into something new as more information is discovered, it always kept my full attention. Then something odd happened at the end, which caused me to re-read the last third of the book, because matters ceased to make sense to me.
While a second read did clarify some matters, I still felt the author had allowed the story to get a bit away from her while she focused on the romance. But, to that point, it is a lovely romance, and I enjoyed every minute of it. So I’m giving this a 4.5 for the sidebar conclusion to who broke into her house and stole some items, and rounding up rather than down because I had a fabulous read plus I rather enjoyed the surprise ending concerning the gold bars, that literally came out of nowhere.
I started smiling then and continued to be captivated for the rest of the book.
The speaker is a neighbour she has never met before, a good-looking antiques dealer.
Hannah gets home one day to find her house has been burgled and from then on her life takes an exciting turn. She finds herself attracted to her neighbour, but also to the detective assigned to her case.
Then the discovery of her grandmother’s hidden letters sets her on the trail of a family mystery that dates back to WW II..
I should tell you that I was already a big fan of Lynette Sofras before I read this book. She writes a good story fluently and well.
This one is no exception. Highly recommended.
The story rollicks along, full of surprises, interspersed with satisfying amounts of glamour, luxury, delicious food and shopping, and it builds to a double climax. Lynette Sofras has a good ear for snappy dialogue and sardonic asides, and Hannah is clearly young, alert and not to be messed with. Yet we realize that while she is unsentimental, she is also fragile. Family secrets always hold fascination, but skeletons in cupboards can give more than one person a terrible shock, as she will find out.
Having read and appreciated several novels by this author, I again enjoyed this one, although I would recommend Killing Jenna Crane as her very best to date.
All seems calm on the surface, but just simmering below the surface story burns another set of truths. No spoilers here! Pick up Cocktails and lies and enjoy being spun into the web of Lynette Sofras's tale. Highly recommended.
My wife has now borrowed my reader 'cause she forgot hers and she started Cocktails and Lies with pleasure. Great, if a little predictable, beach read if her comment.
