That being said, I am pointing out to long time fans that this is a REISSUE book. It was originally printed in 1994. It was a good book when I first read it - but I'm wondering why Zebra Books/Kensington Publishing felt it necessary to claim it was a new book.
The story revolves around Devon James, a writer, a mysterious owner Jonathan Stafford and the Inn he owns. A mystery ghost and a terrible crime have been committed at the Inn in the past. The story is tense and well presented.
If you haven't read this before, and I suspect that it is out of print which would support the re-issue, you will find a very good story.
There is a lot going on in this story. First you have the beautiful Devon James, a successful author who has the bad luck to stay in a Bed and Breakfast that harbors a malevolent spirit from the past that gives her the scare of her life. She feels the intense anger and pain and knows it has something to do with a child from long ago, but that's about it. Already in a somewhat fragile state of mind after a painful divorce and a new fiance who is demanding she set a date for a wedding she's not sure she even wants, Devon feels compelled to discover the mystery of what happened to her in that house and what happened to the child all those years ago. She's just not sure if pursuing this will help alleviate her anxiety or push her over the edge.
Jonathan Stafford is your typical tall, dark and extremely handsome business man and the head of his family's financial empire that has spanned over 150 years and he just happens to own the house where Devon had her frightening confrontation with whatever was in that room. When he finds out that she is determined to investigate and write a book about what she experienced in his house, he is adamant that she stop. For one thing, he doesn't believe in ghosts, and he is absolutely determined to protect his family name and especially his young son who has had enough sorrow and conflict in his life already. He makes it quite clear to Devon that he will stop her by any means necessary, but she just can't find any peace until her questions are answered. As time goes on, Jonathan and Devon spend more time together and their attraction to one another is fierce, both physically and emotionally and a lot of the book surrounds the ups and downs between the two of them as the they struggle with their expectations and desires which are often at odds.
Jonathan and Devon are two very appealing characters. They both have a strong sense of honor and want to do what is right. A few of the secondary characters really enrich the story like Jonathan's son Alex and his Aunt Estell. There is enough action to keep things moving along and by the end you're as curious as they are about confronting the dark presence in that room and what it will mean for everyone when they do. It's a good read, even if it is slightly dated.
It seems so many books lately getting good review that do not deserve more than a 3 rating. This one did not do it for me - and lately i find no interest in her books. Like Nora Roberts - too many, too little. No more from these authors -
Kat Martin, takes you through a story, and really puts
her heart into your enjoyment. Kat, is not just
one of those housewife authors who put books
together just for a profit.
Read just one, and you will be pleasently pleased
Pretty soon you will be like me,n waiting for the
next one to come out.
