Review - Moonglade by Mary Fremont Schoenecker
Author: Mary Fremont Schoenecker
Publisher: Five Star Publishing
Moonglade releases in March 2010 from Five Star Publishing
Rating: You Gotta Read
Reviewed By: Roberta
A contemporary tale of tender relationships, mayhem and mercy. Moonglade is a compelling romantic suspense story. A grisly find, a corpse in the boat channel, links Clare, the finder, to Sergeant Remi Windspirit in an investigation of the dead Jane Doe. Clare and Remi's attraction grows from the first interrogation, but seems unlikely when the investigation turns into a homicide. You will be cheering the love match on as the mystery unfolds in this suspenseful tale which straddles the genres of cozy mystery and sweet romance.
'Moonglade' is the second book in the Maine Shore Chronicles. After reading this, you'll wani to pick up the first book in the series. I know I do.
Most people who read my reviews know I love quick short chapters. This definitely fits the bill. The writing and characters remind me of a Mary Higgins Clark book.
The characters, Remi and Clare, are thrown together because of the investigation. Yet, their relationship tends to take a backseat due to the twists and turns of uncovering who is responsible for the death of Jane Doe. The secondary characters not only help the investigation. They help bring the story to life and keep the story flowing in a sweet and helpful way for Remi and Clare. I personally was captivated by Clare's mom, Tante Margaret. She is a feisty older woman, who reminded me of my grandmother.
I also loved the influence of the French language that is used sporadically through the story. It gave the story a touch of romance.
I hope there are more books to follow in this series. They will definitely be kept on my keeper shelf. Please pick up this book when it is released, you won't be disappointed.
