A painting that holds visions...of love or insanity?
A necklace...is it the secret to her future or the answer to a missing girl two decades past?
Heart sore Audrey MacDougall, a PR event planner, meets the tall and handsome Greg Ellison, a freelance photographer, on a train from Manchester, England to Inverness, Scotland. Both are from suburbia Chicago, Illinois traveling on business, but the similarity does not end there. He approaches her with a familiarity that seems to have transcended time, and she feels it too. But even her exceptional intuition will not explain the mysterious landscape painting that arrived upon her arrival home. When she touches it she is enters the three dimensional world of the painting, and Greg is waiting for her, wanting her as much as she has wanted him. In real life, when he does see her, the feelings are strong and heated followed by unexplained periods of absence. With the interference of her over-exuberant best friend and neighbor, Cynda, some signals are crossed that deter the progress of their romance.
While on her trip her new boss, the pompous Braden Templeton, does a hostile takeover of Jefferson Jones and she is in constant turmoil waiting for her pink slip. Meanwhile, he is showing interest in the necklace she wears, and so is Cynda's fiancee' Evan, who breaks into her home in search of it. Templeton is also very interested in the B&B Audrey and Greg are purchasing. He has her followed. Cold case detective Forbes is watching Audrey and the necklace also. He is waiting for Templeton to make a mistake that will implicate him in the 20 year old case of a missing girl.
I read this well written book in one sitting on a Saturday morning. Our author presents us with a well constructed quilt that puts together pieces you would not expect, but present a beautiful piece of work. Intrigue, time travel, mystery and romance and some dreams fulfilled for a cast of delightful characters. I am so pleased to be introduced to Karla Brandenburg.
I found it to be both romantic and suspenseful with a dash of the supernatural.
I'm looking forward to reading more books from Ms. Brandenburg.
Greg Ellison is a man on the train she meets ion Scotland. He comes from the states, she feels connected to him immediately but doesn't really understand it. They talk and they are from Chicago, Elk Grove, wow neighbors. She could not shake the connection, to her surprise, Greg could not either. They go on a few dates and when things heat up either she backs off or he does. After talking about his photography and her job as an event coordinator they talk about their "dream" of a Bed and Breakfast. He gives Audrey a chance to share the dream and start a new joint venture. Audrey just cant commit. She is fearful of his wife who passed away and the fact that he has two sons. Se makes her pro and con list and still with the help of Cinda can't decide.
Several chance meetings occur and Greg speaks of a future. Her best friend Cinda is mixed up in her fiance and his dealings with this Templeton guy and the culmination of terror, mystery and love unfolds. The intuition she has is so strong and he feels it too and uses it in the end.
What I loved about this was the steam was there but not over the top. I fell in love with Greg when they were in Florida and were getting close to making love he stopped. He told her that she has a few drinks and they should think this over and talk the next day. How romantic is that? I can't give any reveals but, I say read it, you will definitely enjoy!
Thankfully, it picked up and got interesting with the mystery thrown in. Funny though, the better mystery was around Audrey’s necklace rather than the painting. Still not sure how Audrey’s intuition and the painting were supposed to fit into the plot. The author almost had two storylines going and the cold case one was executed better (compared to the painting and romance storyline).
I enjoyed Karla’s Mist on the Meadows more than this tale, but it was still a solid read. As a matter of full disclosure, I received this Kindle edition free from Story Cartel [dot] com in exchange for an honest and balanced review.
