I don't generally post about reviews, but I was so tickled
with what the reviewer at Books, Books and More Books
had to say I decided to share.

I have come to love all books by Jacqueline Paige.  She is definitely a new favorite author.  Her books are charming, intriguing, spicy (in all the right ways), and good reads.  When I started reading “The Solstice Heat” I hadn’t really paid attention to the fact that it was the second book in a series.  I’m due to review the first book on April 21, 2012, but probably should have reversed the order.  (It should be noted that these books were received from the publisher for review at no cost to the author… however, I would pay to read books by Jacqueline and I don’t say that about many writers… love free kindle books, but I digress).

This book stands alone, but will probably be even better if read within the series.  I was immediately drawn into the story.  How can you not want to read more when the first paragraph is:

Kasey checked her bag for the fourth time. What time were they supposed to be picking her up? She was tired from staying up all night working a spell. Nervous and scared about going to Solstice, where a killer was going to be, she glanced at the clock again and tried to exhale slowly.

I was hooked.  The book really drew me into the lives of these 8 friends who love and take care of each other.  The writing used such skill that it was easy to picture myself there in the story living beside these friends.  I continue to be impressed with Ms. Paige’s skill and weaving the characters and story together to paint such a wonderful picture. Come back next Saturday to hear about book 1 in this series.

I definitely give this story 5 out of 5 clouds.

Stop by Melissa's eclectic bookshelf on Monday for an interview and another review.
