A TIME OF CHANGE
Genre: Romantic Suspense, General Romantic Suspense
Readers seeking an uplifting yet classically suspenseful Native American love story will soak up the soulful and spiritual heart of Aimée and David Thurlo's new series starter, A Time of Change. Themes run throughout of lovers reuniting, social forgiveness and small town harmony under a Navajo sky. The descriptions of the tensions and similarities between Navajo Nation and Christian practices are well done, but a bit repetitive, and gender roles skew more traditionalist than typically seen in contemporary romances. Instances of alcoholism, violence and sexual dominance are melodramatically portrayed and may not appeal to a more progressive type of reader.
Jo Buck is a young and ambitious medicine woman trainee in the Navajo Nation community. Tom Stuart, her fatherly Trading Post boss, is found dead and she is drawn into a mystery involving several violent occurrences never seen before. Adding to the mix of suspense and confusion is the return home of her ex-boyfriend, Ben, who has a few secrets and mysteries of his own to unravel. Will they fall back in love and save the Trading Post and its community from further harm? (FORGE, Apr., 336 pp., $24.99)
