The Lost

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! We've had our first taste of winter here with an absolutely gorgeous snowfall last weekend. Too bad it didn't last long. But I'm still hoping for snow for the holidays. We've had flurries a couple days since the first few inches hit the ground, and we're supposed to have more this weekend.

This time out, I have The Lost (Jove) with stories by J. D. Robb aka Nora Roberts, Patricia Gaffney, Mary Blayney, and Ruth Ryan Langan. 'Missing in Death' kicks things off with Eve trying to figure out just what happened to the woman who disappeared off the ferry heading to Staten Island. The evidence really isn't much to work with, but she and Roarke team up with her partner to catch a murderer who is even more elusive than her usual suspects. You can never go wrong with a good Eve Dallas story, and this one makes me long for the next installment in the series. 'The Dog Days of Laurie Summer...' from Gaffney has a woman in a coma after a freak accident, only her spirit doesn't stay in her body the entire time. This one is told in first person, which doesn't do anything for me. It was a different sort of twist in the story, but I didn't love it. Blayney's 'Lost in Paradise' has nurse Isabelle Reynaud heading for a year's work on an island with her parish priest when the boat they're on is wrecked in a storm. When she wakes, she finds some very odd things on Isla Perdida, including the 'master' of the island Sebastian Dushayne who's trapped on his tropical island home. Interesting idea, though I found Isabelle's ready belief of Sebastian's tale a little much to believe. 'Legacy' from Langan has Aidan O'Mara heading off to Ireland right after her mother's death when she's informed that her family isn't exactly the one she believed in. Ross Delaney works for Cullen Glin, who is certain that Aidan is his long-lost granddaughter. Aidan doesn't think the old man is correct, but she can't resist the financial offer he dangles in front of her--since her mother got sick, she's got a lot of debt. But she finds Mr. Glin is persuasive, and she finds his attorney Ross irresistible. This one is absolutely terrific. I'm borrowing four of Cupid's five arrows for the collection, though I really loved only two of these.

Until next time, happy reading!
