More Questions Than Answers

By now, Viola’s fans are clamoring for her to recognize TB’s value. To me, there wasn’t enough of the supernatural interaction in this book, and far too much travelogue data. Very interesting perspective, but too often i feel that Vi is seriously one of the most clueless characters ever. I also found it unrealistic that Carmine would refuse to give her essential information sooner, knowing the danger she’s. In. Hope there’s another book soon !

She does show growth from book to book, but maybe this one hit a little close to home. I don't like when the instituti ...more

Fun continuation of Viola’s story

Viola Valentine is on another travel writers junket, this time on the Natchez Trace. Along the way she learns more about her abilities and her husband’s special abilities. And love. Making the story bittersweet.
