I have always liked the novels that I’ve read by Sandra Cox and Boji Stones is no exception. Call it the romantic in me, but I always love a great ending. The book starts with the magnanimity of gods who give to five mortal women a magical amulet: of power, beauty, creativity, knowledge and healing.
The story then moves to present-day times. We meet Maureen Sinclair who is the nowadays owner of the healing amulet. But there are other people having their eyes on the precious object.
Can Jack Wolfe, the handsome professor, be a tool of the evil forces wanting to grab it? You can feel the sparks between Maureen and Jack, though she and her loyal friend Hank suspect he is behind the many bad things happening in her life.
The characters are fun and realistic, even Bella, who wants back the beauty amulet that was stolen from her. There’s a great scene when Maureen and Bella join forces in a hospital room.
I especially loved the plot in this book. The plot moved along nicely with twists thrown in. When you think the story goes to a predictable direction, a twist pushes everything to a rollercoaster of events. I loved how each chapter ends with a snippet, the POV of the mean character. This snippet becomes a cliffhanger. It doesn’t let you close the book and makes you want to find out who is who and what their target is.
It’s a nice, quick read; making it the perfect romantic suspense book.
