Mind-blowing. Oh wait, maybe I'm not.
Boutique funeral planner Jan Solvang has unusual problems to go with her extraordinary professional. A grieving husband hires her to memorialize his missing wife, and a shocking discovery leaves her with the ornery task of writing the obituary of a man widely despised. Jan's search for information on the deceased leads her into danger as secrets are revealed.
Roman Keller is a determined documentary writer and Jan's former lover. The chaos that seems to follow Jan around like a little dog thoroughly threatens the orderliness of his life. The hero embodies many swoon-worth qualities--courage, compassion and protectiveness--adding a whole new meaning to the story's title.
At the heart of the story, Jan's complicated relationship with Roman, serves to illustrate her deep-seated inability to trust. The heroine is smart and savvy, but seems to lack faith in her own judgment. Her deepest attachment is to her black Scottish terrier, Elwood. Through the course of the story, Jan must make difficult decisions and learn how to put her faith in both Roman and herself.
Swoon is a fast-paced engrossing story with great plot development and wonderful supporting characters. I especially enjoyed Jan's interaction with her father, Walter Solvang, "The General". The love scenes are sensual, focused more on the characters emotions than physical details. Rolynn's prose is information-rich, so this is not a novel for skimming. The reader's attention needs to be fully engaged to absorb every nuance and capture every plot detail.
Five stars all the way.
By Marilyn Baron, author of Under the Moon Gate
This was an interesting, complex story with more than enough plot twists to keep me guessing. I also loved the supporting characters, especially Jan's Scottish terrier Elwood and Roman Keller, a documentary writer who is Jan's ex-lover. Jan and Roman couldn't be more different. Jan has a fainting disorder that leaves her with strange visionary dreams and makes it hard for her to trust people. Her chaotic lifestyle clashes with Roman's determination and drive, which makes for great chemistry between the two. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in the series.
