When Detroit Mayor Drake Randolph's chauffeur hits Lacy Green's automobile during a snowstorm, he feels obligated
Having been married to a politician and gone through a bitter divorce, Lacy isn't anxious to repeat past mistakes. But Drake's persistence and charm, along with the fact that they work in close proximity, just may cause Lacy to reconsider her staunch views on dating.
A slow start and drawn-out events makes Black Lace a tad boring and, initially, difficult to get through. This continuation of the Randolph family saga reads more like mainstream fiction than romance or suspense. Additionally, it lacks the adventurous action usually present in Jenkins' contemporary novels. Occasionally, the banter between Drake and Lacy seems dry and trite. On the up-side, their developing relationship, albeit sluggish, is compelling. Historical facts add character to the story and a plot centering around environmental issues gives depth. Though somewhat flawed, Jenkins latest is cleverly written. (Nov., 384 pp., $6.99)
