SARA’S SONG by Fern Michaels, (c) 1998. I wasn’t sure if I could relate to a story about a rock star and a doctor romance, if you want to call it that.. A romance that is. There seems to be something wrong with Dallas Lord, a 38 year old rock star. When he was a child (age 7) he fell out of a tree and probably should have gone to the hospital for x-rays but his 10 year old brother thought he was fine and never told anyway. Guilt caused lawyer Adam Lord to take charge of his brother’s finances after he started the CANYON RIVER BAND.
After Doug Lord’s best friend and band mate Billy Sweet has a heart attack he meets a doctor Sara Killian, and after Billy dies in the hospital Dallas invites Sara to his estate where they have become good friends. Sara think Dallas has a problem with illiteracy at first. He can’t really read or manage his own finances. Now his brother Adam quit working for Dallas and he’s at a loss and panics. His old lover comes back and bilks him out of money. She asked for $25,000.00 but Dallas offers $100,000.00 which she greedily takes.
Meanwhile I guess Dallas writes Sara a song and then some tragedy happens to Dallas. According to the book blurb on the back cover: “But before he disappeared, Dallas gives Sara a love song written just for her. It’s a legacy that will take Sara places she’s never dreamed of– Into intrigue, betrayal and deadly danger. And when she meets Adam Lord, Dallas’s older brother, she will find herself torn–between Adam, the most attractive and complicated man she’s ever known, and Dallas, the man her heart won’t let her forget.”
SAVANNAH BLUES by Mary Kay Andrews, (2003), author of LITTLE BITTY LIES. This mystery/romance might be okay, at least I hope it is! This story takes place in Savannah, Georgia where Eloise “Weezie” Foley is living in a backyard carriage house which she aquired in the divorce settlement. Her ex-husband Talmadge Evans III and his new girlfriend Caroline DeSantos are living in the huge luxurious townhouse Weezie used to live in with Tal.
Now Weezie is a ‘antique “picker”, she aquires the items at estate sales, yard sales and even things set out on the curb for garbage pick up, then the fixes them up and sells them. One day a rather wealthy old lady in town died and in order to get a preview of the homes contents Weezie attends the viewing being held in the old home, where she ends up in the middle of a murder mystery. I have no idea who dies at this point., as it’s too early to tell, and let’s face it, do you REALLY want to know, or just find out for yourself?
IN THE MIDNIGHT RAIN by Ruth Wind, 2000. I read this book already! In fact if I had taken the time to open the inside of the paperback cover I would see what I wrote! “A real good book! LB” See there I thought it sounded familiar and it certainly was.
Here’s the rundown on it from the back of the book cover:
Ellie Connor is a biographer with a special talent for piecing together fragments of the past. Her latest project, though, promises to be her most challenging- and personal. Not only is she researching the life of a blues singer who disappeared mysteriously forty years ago, but Ellie is also trying to find the truth about the parents she never knew. The love child of a restless woman who dies young and an anonymous father, Ellie has little to go on but a faded postcard her mother sent from a small East Texas town- the hometown of her latest subject. Of course there a sexy older man involved named Blue Reynard and they have incredible sex (of course). LOL.
NOTE: I’m sure you’ll enjoy it since I obviously did!
