Rx Missing: A Decorah Security Novel by Rebecca York draws you in from the opening scene. If you’ve read other Decorah books, then you know what to expect: action, suspense, and compelling characters like Mack, his twin brother Grant, and Lily. I don’t want to give away any of the surprising turns of event that York is known for, but know that from the opening scene, nothing is as it seems.
Sons of Silver Springs: Heart of A Lawman by Patricia Rosemoor offers deep emotions and family connections–the good, the bad, and the heartwarming. Bart arrives for a visit with his Dad, with his reluctant, often surly kids in tow. Josie, fleeing for her life, arrives in the dying town with no place left to run. Well-drawn characters in a nicely-plotted mystery make for a compelling read.
Twilight's Encore: Wounded Hearts Book #3 by Jacquie Biggar gives past lovers Ty and Katy, separated by time and distance for a decade, a second chance to get it right. Imbued with a sense of immediacy and tension, this romantic suspense has some nice twists and turns and the emotion one wants in a story of this type.
Sink or Swim by Stacy Juba features Cassidy, a reality show star who has the bad luck to become the obsession of a stalker. She’s no shrinking violet in her quest to reclaim her life, but who can she trust? Zach, a photographer assigned to cover her? With great characters, lots of nice twists, and a little romance, this mystery is a page turner.
Cocktail Cove: A Southern Steam Novel by Jennifer Saints is a total romp. Think Married to the Mob starring Michelle Pfeiffer! It’s that kind of zany story with Nikita, who accidentally murdered her ex, and Ben, a resort developer looking for redemption. This book is a delight from the first sentence.
A few months ago the old Fowler family cabin was where a standoff took place between Jarod and his friends from his SEAL team against Russian mafia magnate Barnikov.
Now one member of the Fowler family has come back to Tidal Falls for a few weeks: Katy Fowler. Katy is now a heart surgeon in LA and has decided she wanted to get married in the Tidal Falls theatre. The they're has been in disrepair for many, many years, but is a historical site in Tidal Falls.
Ty Garrett has been restoring old homes for several years and then was offered the job of restoring the theatre. When he took on the job, he knew the place was owned by the Fowler family, but he was not aware it was being redone for Katy's wedding or that Katy would be there for the last month and a half of the restoration. If he had known, despite the money and the prestigious job of fixing a place that also had history for him, he would have turned the job down. You see he and Katy had dated for over two years and then she suddenly left for LA. They never really talked about it. He was shocked she would follow her family and she was upset he didn't ask her to stay or follow her. Hence, a very bad and bitter ending that never was resolved.
Upon seeing each other again, it is clear that the chemistry is still there, but despite it, Katy and Ty just can't figure out how to be civil with one another.
This back and forth dynamic between Ty and Katy continues for fair amount at the beginning of the novel: wanting to be together, attracted to each other, wanting to spend time together, yet the fiancé and the past get in the way and the pattern starts over.
About a 1/4 of the way through, the novel picks up. Mysterious things are happening at the renovation site. There are random spotting of a guy no one has ever seen. Ty tries to tell Katy about the other things that have been happening, but she doesn't really take him seriously...until she attacked right outside the alley of Grace's restaurant. He gets spooked and runs, shoots a bystander then leaves town for a bit.
During this time, the incidents with Barnikov in town are also taking place (these are in Book 2). As things mysteriously continue at the theatre and around town from two different people, it is hard for Katy to feel fully safe unless she is with Ty. The both are also aware that the old feelings have me we disappeared for either one of them. While they are working in resolving the past for closure, the incident with Barnikov has moved to the farm. Ramsey is getting more and more set in his plan to kidnap Katy as part of his payment to stop the renovations of the theatre. He soon has set his plan in motion and only time and ingenuity will determine Katy and Ramsey's fate, who hired Ramsey, and who she will be walking down the theatre isle to marry.
I was impressed by the way the author carried over the events from book 2 during the overlapping time period. She did so with references and descriptions of where other characters were. She did a great job ensuring that at a set time period a specific character was not written into the novel. Ms Biggar also utilized flashbacks or intimations of certain characters so that she was able to have this novel overlap the incidents taking place at the Fowler Farm. It was a great technique that added to the novel without being too detailed.
The one thing I kept looking for was the backstory from Book 2 about the journey of Frank and Adam to find Maggie. It never arose in this novel. And time wise, that makes sense as they would have just set out after the Fowler Farm incident. Perhaps in Book 4 or 5 we will learn a little more. If not, I am hoping the author will be writing Maggie's story soon.
