Sensuality: HOT

RT Rating

The final book in the Flynn Brothers trilogy is solidly plotted and has the usual assortment of colorful, well-rounded characters. Touches of humor sprinkled throughout will add greatly to the reader's enjoyment. Skeptics beware, though -- Caer's secret is a dandy.

On a visit to Ireland, millionaire businessman Sean O'Riley becomes deathly ill. When he recovers sufficiently to travel, it's nurse Caer Cavannaugh's job to see that he reaches the States safely. Sean's daughter Kat believes her father's much-younger second wife is trying to kill him, and when Sean's business partner, Eddie Ray, vanishes, Kat brings in a family friend, P.I. Zach Flynn, to look into matters. There are no easy answers, or apparent motives, for the attempt on Sean's life or Eddie's disappearance, and Zach is grateful for Caer's aid and support as his investigation progresses. But Caer has a secret that could affect the outcome of the case -- and the future of her blossoming romance with Zach -- in completely unexpected ways. (MIRA, Dec., 400 pp., $7.99)

Deadly Gift

Submitted by Robin in PA on February 5, 2014 - 3:43pm.

When Millionaire Sean O'Riley and his young wife travel to Ireland, he becomes deathly ill. Signs say he may have been poisoned, so Nurse Caer Cavannaugh is assigned to take care of him. Sean's daughter believes someone is trying to kill him, so she called Private Investigator Zach Flynn, asking him to bring her father home. Zach starts looking into the situation and finds that Sean's friend and business partner has disappeared, his sailboat found abandoned. Now Zach and Caer must try to keep Sean out of harms way before the killer strikes again.

This is the third book in the Flynn Brothers trilogy. It suffers from a weak (boring) mystery, and a lukewarm romance. The paranormal aspects of the story were laughable, and the book needed a good editor to catch several glaring mistakes. I ended up skimming the second half of the book. My rating: 1.5 Stars.
