Charlotte Enright, owner of a small antiques shop called Looking Glass Antiques on Rainshadow Island, and Slade Attridge, the community's new chief of police, both have something in common: they possess strong paranormal talents. They met several years ago when they were in their teens spending the summer on the island. Slade saved Charlotte from a gang of drunken toughs, but then at the end of the summer Slade and Charlotte went their separate ways and started their adult lives. Now, fifteen years later, they have both been drawn back to Rainshadow Island. They will discover the adult passion they have for each other and start to explore some of the mysteries of the forbidden section of the island known only as the Preserve.
Jayne Ann Krentz has to be one of the busiest writers in the genre as to a certain extent it feels that theres a new book out every few months, yet that said, they all have something different for the fans, whether it’s the lead characters or the plotline and something very dark and mysterious that attracts the reader to the series.
As usual, the adventure leads to romance, complications and new discoveries as the principle protagonist keeps takes series fans to the island of Rainshadow which many have yearned to visit. All in well written, cleverly plotted and a decent enough overall arc.
