Like your stories with suspense, a family curse and inherited paranormal abilities being used to thwart big business developers out to take over the valley? Look no further - this has got the lot as well as plenty of humorous moments, strange happenings and great community spirit working together.
Calamity Valley has three small towns - Hopeless, Surrender and Reckless. Each has its own member of the Mackillop family living there, and each older member of the family has their own unique and special mystic way inherited from their maternal ancestors. They need their powers to help free their communities from the curses put on them by the Great Grandfathers - aka the GGs - which meant all the men who courted the Mackillop ladies left. The first story in the series is Lone Star Hero and that concerns the Hopeless community. This is the second story in the series and is about Surrender. I believe that it can be read as a standalone but it does include many characters introduced in the first story and follows on from events in it, too.
Lauren Mackillop is returning to her home in Surrender after being duped by her business partner. Mark Sterrett is moving there to take over the lease on the saloon. The two meet accidentally in the airport but both play roles rather than tell the truth. Both have secrets but only by learning to trust and work together can they thwart both the developers and the curse as well as have any chance at finding love together.
This is a fun, engaging read that had me laughing out loud. I'd enjoyed the first story in the series and this was equally as entertaining - I can't wait to read the next one! I requested and was given a copy of this book, via NetGalley. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
