We're back on St Helen's and this time the main characters are Zinnia and Nick. I particularly liked Nick, he was the sort of man that appeals to me. Confident and careless of others opinions of him. I loved his tacky decor, his authority and total beleif that he could buy himself respectability. As usual with Ms Krentz there is a mystery to resolve, threats and danger, and a wide cast of extra's, including some from the previous book in this mini-series. The writer has really given a sense of time and place and as usual the characters are well rounded, with individual personalities whilst not getting away from the basic romantic tropes. Light and easy to read, great for when you want to lose yourself for a few hours and don't want to have to concentrate too much. A nice book, that leaves a nice feeling

The book arrived quickly and was well-packed, as described and lightweight as a story but rather trite in content though readable.

I loved it!!!! Ms. Castle further developed the world of St. Helens which she created in Amarallys and again her characters of Zinnia and Nick were wonderful.
It may not be the most original series you'll ever read but if you're looking for just the right touch of fantasy and mystery and most importantly romance and chemistry, this is the way to go.

On the planet of St. Helens, a group of earth colonists cut offfrom their home planet, has fashioned a society that is unlike anything that exists on Earth today. The planet itself changed the colonists in some inexplicable fashion. It has brought out the psychic talents in some of the people, but that power cannot be used without a matrix to focus that ability. Agencies spring up that match a registered matrix to a psychic so that they can work as a team without being burned out. Rarely does a prism and a psychic team up without proper sanctioning. ..... The latter is the case with Zinnia, a registered prism, and Nick, an unregistered psychic. They meet when Zinnia is hunting down her missing client who she thinks Nick has snatched. When she realizes that he knows nothing about the disappearance, they form a partnership to learn what happened to the missing person and to recover the journal that once belonged to Nick's father. He hopes that the diary will give him answers to the three decades old mystery of who murdered his parents. Someone wants to keep the pair from learning the truth. This diabolically clever individual will resort to murder to insure that certain secrets remain buried. It seems doubtful that Zinnia and Nick, in love and working as a team, can surmount the forces that conspire to permanently remove them from the picture. ...... Jayne Castle (AKA Jayne Anne Krentz) has written another potent futuristic romance, filled with her trademark charm, humor, and delightfully eccentric characters. Like the prequel, AMARYLLIS, ZINNIA has a delectable mystery at its core that is so entertaining that it could sell as a superb who-done-it. This is necessary read for fans of the talented author, futuristic romance lovers, and amateur detective novels. ....
