Edie Spence, Book 4
Synopsis: Edie Spence just wanted a vacation. A nice, relaxing, stress free, non-adventure away from the craziness that’s dominated her life since becoming a nurse for paranormal creatures. But from the start, her trip on the Maraschino, a cruise ship bound for Hawaii, has been anything but stress free, especially when Edie’s boyfriend Asher recognizes someone he used to know. Someone from his not-so-nice past. With their lives in the balance, will Edie and Asher be able to save their growing family or will this adventure be their end?
Review: I really enjoy this series, so I was eager to read this new release. Well, Edie never really has any luck and I was curious to see in what mess we would find her this time. I confess that I was also completely surprised by the environment that we find here, our two heroes Asher and Edie are currently on a cruise.
So as I said our two characters meet on a boat to take a vacation. But then Edie wonders if she is pregnant and is anxious about the Asher’s reaction, however he is only obsessed with a man who is on the ship. Indeed, in one of his other lives, our hero worked for someone who has been proven far worse than he had imagined. After stealing data, Asher did not hesitate to give his name to higher authorities to lock him away. As he is convinced that it is not a coincidence to see the man now with them, he is determined to understand what he is trying to achieve here, especially if it is against him. But when a kind of epidemic spread throughout the ship and that the death toll is rising, our two heroes will have to do everything to stay alive.
I admit that I was a bit unsettled at the beginning when I realized that the whole novel was going to happen on the boat. It always gives me the impression of a story confined and finally it does not happen as many events as in other novels. This does not mean that it was not good eh! Because I really liked the novel, but the story does not necessarily advance as I really wanted. Yet I found that the plot was really interesting and I was curious to know what was really happening on the ship. People act more and more strangely and it is true that whatever we do, we can not imagine the reason behind all these events. I was also curious to see how the pregnancy would change Edie, to know the nature of the child, or to know if she would survive with him during the whole adventure. And I must say that the author has managed to achieve something incredible in a relatively small space eventually. We have a lot of things about this epidemic and the plot that takes place on the boat. We also meet many characters who will have great impacts on the Edie’s life. I must say that this story will overcome them all. Of course it is still very cute to see our couple together especially after all the hardships they have been through and it’s very nice to see our happy and loving nurse.
I was also very surprised by the end of the novel as I did not really expect that and I’m really curious to see what will happen. By cons, yes, we have a real cliffy and it is true that it will be quite difficult to wait so much to know the rest of the story. I think that this volume is a link between Volume 3 and volume 5 and I look forward to read more. A good story even if maybe I have a preference for the other novels. This is fun and always pleasant to read this series.
