A gripping, well written, complex and multi-layered story that grabbed me immediately. The characters, basic and secondary, are well developed and three dimensional. The attraction between Jaz and Romain was immediate and sizzling, continuing to grown in intensity. There are plenty of twists and turns. I rated the story overall at 4.75 and assigned it a sexy rating of 5. I am on to book 3 in this series!
It's hard to write a book that, to me, doesn't cross the line from what I wish to read - a mystery/thriller/murder book & combine it with romance & passion that is believable for the situation they are in. This book did it. Although I had figured it out from the beginning (not uncommon) it was enjoyable seeing how the writer built up to it. On to the 3rd book in the series!
this is a suspenseful riveting story that will hold you on the edge of your seat. So a lot of twists and turns, so a lot of tense filled moments. Romain and Jasmine enter into a challenging find for a murderer. This is one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read. At times I felt as frightened as the characters. Unbelievable read!
The latest stand, Jasmine who has some psychic abilities is still searching for her sister after 16 years. What she finds is a depraved psychopath, stolen kids and at least one kid tortured, with a father who becomes an Alia in her find for her missing sister.
Awesome!!!!!!!!!! Could not place this book down. I love the strong women in Brenda's books. They are not your typical damsels in distress. This is suspenseful and keeps you guessing until the end. Such a cliche thing to say, but true. I love the twist with the relationship between the main hero and the "leading man". I can't wait to read the next book in the series...
Captivating characters, mystery and suspense mixed with romance. A handsome man with a troubled past hiding in the swamps of Lousiana just wants to be left alone but into his live comes a woman he can't place out of his mind. She needs his support but he tries to resist her. Together they undertake a perilous journey.
Surprised it has such amazing reviews The answers are wrong. Take for instance 'who does fleur delacour take as her date to the yule ball?' I choose roger davies (the correct answer) and it tells me I'm wrong. Ron pretends to be ill with spattergroit in the latest book but this is wrong as well apparantely and ginny's full name is not ginerva according to this quiz...guess the books are wrong then. Just a rubbish, inaccurate quiz.
Major Ernest Pettigrew is a lot of things: retired from Her Majesty’s Army; a somewhat reclusive widower; proud son of decorated Col. Pettigrew who served in colonial India; an only surviving son – having just lost his brother Bertie; and resident of a little coastal village that is steeped in traditional social layering and far from the pace and progressive nature of London where the Major’s son, Roger, leads a very various life. Ernest’s life is about to change, challenging his assumptions about his rightful put in genteel country society and the society itself, about his presumption of primogenitor rights, about the rigid cultural notions standing between him and the lovely Pakistani widow tea peddler whom he unexpectedly discovers to be a kindred soul, and the generational chasm between his son and the Major’s paternal expectations. At center, Major Pettigrew is a amazing soul, despite his very contained tradition bound demeanor. Through his challenges, Simonson leads us through frustration, shock, anger, ample humor, and at times an almost overwhelming desire to shake the living daylights out of some of these characters to support them see their own folly. I loved this book!
This is a completely delightful and entertaining novel entailing the life of Major Ernest Pettigrew (Ret.) as he navigates the globe around him. He is a staunch Brit who believes in family (he certainly does his best!), country (he spent a lot of years in Her Majesty's Service), amazing books (leather bound classics) and old friends. As the story progresses, he discovers his son has become someone he doesn't really recognize or approve of, he sees his mates as the arrogant, prejudiced people they are, he sees his city under attack by an aggressive developer and he discovers a fresh friendship with Mrs. Jasmina Ali, a Pakistani shopkeeper. Throughout all of this, Major Pettigrew charges on with a marvelous dry wit, feels shame for those that are involved in belittling or being prejudicial, tries to be a peacemaker, tries to mentor younger men, knows when to laugh at himself, reaches out across multicultural lines and initiates relationships and desperately seeks to fall in love again. This is a unbelievable book!!
I would give this book 4 1/2 stars if possible. As other reviewers said, the story is a small slow going, but certainly lays the groundwork for the main characters and their lives in a little English village. I had the privilege of living in England for three years in the mid-1970s, and this book brought back so a lot of memories of the people and nearby villages. I'm sure a lot of things have changed since then, but the overall feeling of "being and acting English" shown by the characters seemed very true to me. The Major is going through a private crisis after losing his only sibling, even though they hadn't been very close. If you've ever lost a parent or sibling, you know that grief hits you at odd times and in ways you can't predict, so his feelings of suddenly being lost in his ordered life hit very close to home. And we saw the inderlying prejudice versus East Indians and Pakistanis in the '70s in how they were referred to. The village life and social hierarchy was very familiar, too. I remember a church fete one Sunday afternoon where the vicar's wife was very much in charge. This was a huge change from my more latest reading of sci-fi and fantasy, but i thoroughly enjoyed the slower pace as the characters developed and changed, even Roger. I've known more than one "young buck" who deviated greatly from his parents' ideas and values (isn't that what kids do when they are finding themselves?) and who eventually realized that their core values were beautiful closely similar to that of their parents. I would highly recommend this book if you don't mind reading a story that takes a small time and effort to develop. I'd say it's well worth your time and effort.
Major Ernest Pettigrew is a widower who loses his younger brother. In his grief and shock, he is befriended by Mrs. Ali, a Pakistani shopkeeper. An unlikely romance develops, much to the dismay and disapproval of both her family and the villagers who push a local woman into his path. Charming and sweet, the slow build of their attraction is the highlight of the book. There are intriguing issues along the way, but watching the crusty major prepare for an outing with Mrs. Ali, or worry about the weather for his impending date was delightful. The problem I had was with the assorted side players, there were too a lot of of them, from her unhappy nephew, the major's sister-in-law, niece, and his son. complicated too, by a war over inheritance created for distractions from the tender love story. I could have read about the courtship of the major and Mrs. Ali and been well satisfied.
This is the author's first novel, and she does a amazing job of painting a little English village in current times. Major Pettigrew is despondent over the loss of his wife, and then his brother. Life doesn't seem to keep out much more for him. Then he meets the Pakistani widow who runs a local shop. The two fall in love, but obstacles contains the families on both sides (who are all prejudiced in their own way), as well as the village's disapproval of a "mixed race" marriage. The book holds some amazing insights and ironies about their situation. Luckily, life comes to a satisfied conclusion. Well done!
The basic reader changes at Chapter 15. This was very disappointing and changes the tone and feel of the story. I was quite involved with the reader of Major Pettigrew for the first 14 chapters - he was excellent as an older British Major - the excellent delivery of all that is old-school British... such a let-down. I choose my audible books based on the reading sample - this should’ve been created known.
I admit that I am a speed reader, racing thru novels at a voracious pace. Then I discovered Major Pettigrew and the globe slowed. I savored every descriptive paragraph, every page, every person and every plot twist and turn. I only read it during my half hour lunch period, refusing to rush thru it at home later. I looked forward to it every day, and angsted over its inevitable conclusion. The different faces of humanity on display with the cold social mores of the time were exceptionally well done.
