An absorbing romantic story,
This review is from: Three Weeks Last Spring (Paperback)
Victoria Howard has written a fascinating romantic novel set in Washington State's San Juan Islands. Despite a former, disastrous love affair with a US naval officer, London-based Skye Dunbar decides to rent a cabin on one of the islands in an attempt to face her inner demons and lay the past to rest.
But she doesn't bargain on meeting Jedediah Walker, a marine biologist, who reawakens feelings she had thought she would never experience again.
From the first time they meet, it is hate at first sight, undermined by the sizzling chemistry that neither Walker nor Skye can suppress.
The intense physical attraction felt by the feuding couple is not the only chemical reaction occurring on the island. Dead fish with high levels of toxic chemicals are turning up on the island's beaches.
Walker's computer contains important data about the rising level of chemicals in and around the bay. When a hacker breaks into the computer, he suspects that Skye might be involved, especially when he finds out that she is a computer software designer.
Their relationship worsens considerably, exacerbated by the arrival on the island of Skye's business partner John Ridge, who has been in love with Skye since the first day they met. Eventually, Skye is forced to make a choice between the two men. But whom will she choose?
"Three Weeks Last Spring" is an absorbing story that will be loved by all romantic novel readers.
