I was completely taken by the first book in this trilogy (All Hallows at Eyre Hall)—so much so that I immediately uploaded Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall to my Kindle.

Once again Luccia Gray has written a spectacular tale of love, unexpected betrayal, conspiracy, kidnapping, intrigue, shocking secrets and revelations that change life for the people at Eyre Hall in unexpected ways. This book takes you from their Yorkshire countryside to a despairing search in London and then across the Atlantic Ocean and stormy seas to colonial Jamaica and back.

Only desperation (or insanity) would have forced the journey back to Eyre Hall from Jamaica under the circumstances Jane and Michael found themselves in.

At the end of this book you still cannot be certain of what will happen—so many things hang in the balance. Will Michael survive, what fate awaits Jane when she returns home?

I am dismayed that we will not know the answers until the third book in the series is published in 2016!!

Note: While Twelfth Night at Eyre Hall can be read as a stand alone book, a reader will miss out on a greater understanding and the richness of the background of the characters if they don’t read All Hallows at Eyre Hall first.

Patty Wisemans books

Multi award winning, Patty Wiseman is a talented writer who has a good understanding of human emotions and reactions, and has the ability to make her readers feel like they are right there with the characters.

This 3 book series takes you to Detroit in 1929—they follow the continuing story of Ruth Squire’s life.
An Unlikely Arrangement introduces her as a spunky rebellious 17 year old who wants to explore the world and live an exciting life. After she pulls a few rebellious stunts she finds her self imprisoned in her room while her parents plot to marry her off to the milk man in an effort to save her from herself.  When she meets this man whom she has imagined would be dull and uninteresting, she finds that she likes him and is willing to accept her “fate”.
But other forces are already in play; forces of corruption, greed and she becomes the ransom that will save her home and families life style.
This first book takes you on a skillfully written journey of love, betrayal, intrigue, kidnapping and murder—at a time when the power of the Mob rules . An Unlikely Arrangement ends on a cliff hanger, that skillfully leads you into its sequel “An Unlikely Beginning”.

In An Unlikely Beginning, Ruth Squire’s and Peter Kirby (the milk man) struggle to build a relationship and get married. But this book is also riddled with secrets and crime. Peter is kidnapped and Ruth takes matters into her own hands in an effort to save him. Some of her mother’s secrets also come to light, and the reader learns that many things are not what they seem to be. This is not a case of the sins of the father being visited upon his children, it is quite the opposite.

An Unlikely Conclusion is the third and final book of the series.  It begins just after Ruth Squire and Peter Kirby finally get married. They board the train to begin their honeymoon and less than a hour later they are involved in a horrific train accident. The intensity of this dramatic event is made even more tragic by Ruth’s momentary willful and stubborn actions just before it happened. This book leads them into another series of unexpected history that they had no idea about, and their relationship is almost torn apart.
Patty Wiseman has done masterful job of penning this series in it’s historical background, bringing to life the feelings of real human beings caught in the corruption of the mob during the Roaring Twenties. Even if you don’t usually read the Historical genre, I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
The entire Velvet Shoe Collection is a worthy addition to any library!

The Assignment

I enjoyed this book on so many levels.

I enjoyed the apparent intimacy that Solon has with the Philippines, making me feel that her descriptions of the country, the people and the culture were accurately portrayed and that I could believe that they were a true reflection of the culture. I appreciated the history that she wove into the story, portraying the pain of an actual event in history for the people and the devastation to the country during WW II.

Sophie Mathews and Eric Santiago’s relationship was touching and drew me in from the very beginning. Sophie did not want to accept this one last assignment to the Philippines, but her boss insisted and she went with reluctance and trepidation. She loved the country, but she did not want to see Eric again. She had met him ten years earlier when she had been there on another project. They had fallen in love, but Eric had kept a secret that had torn them apart and she had left feeling hurt and betrayed. However,once she meets Marina Suarez who is the focus of her assignment, she senses that there is a big story surrounding her. Her journalist fervor, her spunk and unflagging determination drives her to discover what Marina’s dark secret is. It is inevitable that Eric and Sophie meet. He still loves her and he does not want to lose her again, but he is caught between his feeling for Sophie and his loyalty to Marina, his long time friend. He knows much of Marina’s secret and he keeps it, even though it could threaten his new beginning with Sophie.

I treasured Marina Suarez’ story; so unlikely, so tragic and so real. It showed her strength and determination, her endurance, her love, her pain and grief, her acceptance, moving on with her life but never forsaking the undying love that she harboured in her heart.

The climax of the story was a real heart tugger and the ending was so fitting. The characters became very real to me and I felt their emotions. There were two heroines in this book for me: Sophie and Marina.

It is a story of incredible characters, love, pain and loss, deep grief, determination and second chances. This is a great read for anyone who enjoys a heart touching read with many twists and turns. I wasn’t disappointed. I don’t think you will be!

you can run….” (Book Two of the Thompson Family trilogy.)

is a sequel to my first novel, Hearts At Risk.  It is the second book in the Trilogy of theThompson family at Thompson Land and Cattle Company in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Shauna Lee Holt, Colt Thompson’s former fiancée, has taken center stage in

“you can run…..

     Shauna Lee Holt is an intelligent, successful, outgoing business woman; a workaholic who owns Swift Current Accounting and Bookkeeping Services in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada.

But her professional persona is not reflected in her personal life which is lonely, closed and sterile.  She has no intimate relationships: no family and no friends.  Life has taught her that intimacy and commitment bring loss and pain: but she still craves companionship and human touch.  She assuages her loneliness with the “company” that she brings home on the weekends; men who live for the moment and want no lingering ties.

Then Brad Johnson comes into Shauna Lee’s life.  He is not like the men she is used to.  He sees beyond the surface.  He wants what she is certain she cannot give him; love and intimacy.

She has secrets; deeply hidden, painful secrets.  She clings desperately to the safety of anonymity: she is afraid to let anyone breach the walls of the facade she has built.  She is living a lie to protect herself.  She can run….

But can she hide?

“you can run…. continues to follow the lives of Colt and Frankie Thompson as their lives intertwine with Brad and Shauna Lee.  Frankie and Colt seem to have everything.  Their family grows; their relationship deepens.  After the birth of their twins and three years of marriage they are still discovering new things about each other; however, during the journey they have to face the fact that even wonderfully happy relationships are sometimes subject to painful adjustments that come with the ebbs and flows of life.

This is a story of second chances and unconditional love; a tale of secrets, lies, tormented lives, rage and murder.

I hope you enjoy following Frankie and Colt’s life and Shauna Lee and Brad’s new story in this sequel to my first novel, Hearts At Risk by Gloria Antypowich, which is available at Amazon.com in both paper back and Kindle format.  Hearts At Risk  is also available at Smashwords in a variety of ebook formats including Kindle and Nook. The ebooks are available for .99.
