Charlotte Enright, owner of the local antique shop called "Looking Glass" in Rainshadow Island, and Slade Attridge, the new police chief had met when they were teeangers. Fifteen years later both have come back to the island. Strange and unexplainable are happenning in the mysterious reserve. I liked the two main characters and the secondary ones as well. I would have like to have seen a bit more chemistry between Charlotte and Slade but they were still likeable and very engaging.
This series would not be the same without the Dust Bunnies If one happens to like the flavor which I do , this is not really a problem, but I admit reading a bunch in a row does the author a bit of a disservice. The SF-nal series under the Jayne Castle penname beginning with After Dark is the more successful in terms of genre cross-over with SF than the earlier series the eponymous Zinnia, Orchid, and Amaryllis ; the later-published works are a sort of universe-reboot of the earlier.
Both more or less transpose the contemporary Pacific Northwest into SF-nalized colony-planet settings with psi powers, but the series beginning with After Dark adds ancient alien abandoned cities and artifacts to the mix, much to its benefit. Of the three latest of this series I picked up from the library this past weekend to treat my reading blahs, I found one shelved in the general fiction section, one in the Romance section, and one in the SF section. All the same series, mind you.
The books are probably not for the more rabid sorts of SF purists, but they did fix my reading block, as I shot through three of them in two days. Ta, L.
