I'm torn now. Part of me can't wait for the next book, so I can finally see my characters have their happy ending, yet the rest of me is sad, because then the series ends and it means I won't have these friends any more.
You may have to turn in your “Ruby” slippers sooner than you thought.
Castle Cove seems to be suffering from an outbreak of crime… and it’s dogging your footsteps.
That feeling you’ve been getting… the one that makes me think of glass houses and stones? Pay attention!
Even though you’re falling for Jared…
Even if your heart and your dreams are here…
It may be time to hit the road.
Oops! Too late!
Bottom line: I whined a little (but just a little) when I reached the end of this second book in the Extraordinary series. Cliffhanger….
But, really good, anyways…. 4 stars.
Charlotte and her little sister Paige are living in Castle Cove, house and shop sitting while their new owner Ruby is on a yoga retreat. The daughters of con artists Charlotte and Paige are running away and trying to go straight. Unfortunately, almost from their first day Charlotte told a little white lie and now the whole town thinks she is Ruby and she's psychic!
In book one we were introduced to practically the only under 50s in the whole town. Tabby and Troy,
who are twins: Tabby runs the local hardware store and Troy is a cop. Eleanor the librarian, Ben the barman and Jared the Deputy Sheriff. Charlotte/Ruby uses her psychic 'powers' to help the local police solve crimes, in reality she owes her success to a few mini-cams she planted in public places and a good memory.
In this latest installment a new criminal is targeting Castle Cove, breaking into homes and playing practical jokes like hiding kitchen utensils in the freezer or tying jumper sleeves together. Alongside the secret prankster is something more sinister, cryptic gifts and notes from Charlotte and Paige's parents - have they been caught already?
As the love lives of the under 50s become more complicated Charlotte is torn between the life she wants and hiding from her parents.
Loved this, loving this series, can't wait for the final installment.
Charlotte, still posing as Ruby the Psychic, and her sister Paige have settled into the quirky small town of Castle Cove. This time, she’s again drawn into a police case where someone is breaking into houses, but not stealing or destroying anything, just moving things around. In fact in some cases, the intruder washes the dirty dishes left in the sink. A teenage prank? A misguided burglar? Can Charlotte help hot Deputy Jared figure out the culprit?
The poor young woman is drawn to Jared, but she keeps pushing him away, hoping to protect her heart and his. On top of all that’s going on, her parents appear to be on her trail, and that’s not a good thing. Can she avoid them to protect Paige?
While the first book in the series, Anything but Extraordinary, resolved most issues and only left a very minor cliffhanger at the end, A Life Less Extraordinary concludes with a few major cliffies. I’ll be honest; I can’t wait to read book three in this series to find out how this ends.
Mary Frame can take her position next to the likes of Janet Evonovich for madcap humor. This is cleaner, and I like Charlotte more than Stephanie Plum, but I can draw parallels. Both are single women who keep getting caught up in situations that initially appear beyond them, but they rise to, or perhaps trip into, solutions.
So, will the parents relent? Will Jared and Charlotte persist? Will Tabby and Ben work things out? Will everyone live happily ever after in Castle Cove, or will it all disintegrate and leave everyone miserable. That third book is calling to me.
This highly enjoyable, well-written book kept me reading and wanting to learn what would come next. I highly recommend it.
I received a free review copy of this book from the author. Her generosity had no influence on my opinions on this book. It’s a book I truly enjoyed.
Another mystery features in this installment, but the mystery takes a backseat to the budding relationship between Charlotte & Jared. That man! He’s wonderful! He’s so close to perfect it’s almost painful. The romance is sweet, with Jared seeming to sense that “Ruby” needs things to go slow. I found myself yelling at my iPad as I read, cursing Charlotte for not coming clean, telling the truth, and letting Jared help her.
The ending snuck up on me before I was ready and, I will warn you, the cliffhanger has me biting my nails in anticipation. Thankfully the entire series is published and you won’t have to wait for satisfaction.
