WISHIN' ON A STAR
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Multicultural
Shelby Russaus brother Cleophus had been in the military as part of the U.S. Grenada operations. However shortly upon his return to the U.S., he fell ill and died.
When a handsome man confronts Shelby, demanding to know Cleophus whereabouts, she is initially angered. Shelby explains that her brother is dead, and Raphael Blaize tells her that she has a 16-year-old nephew, who is ill with a blood disorder. According to the ancient mystical practices of the Blaize family, the boy must undergo the ceremonial Rite of Passage, and both sides of his family need to be represented. Raphael also wants to discover if Shelby is a match for a blood transfusion.
Shelby agrees to travel to Hummingbird Island off the coast of Grenada, which is owned by the Blaize family. There also seems to be antagonism coming from locals regarding the ancient rite. Raphael represents the traditions of the past, while others want to look to the future. Shelby soon wonders if magic from the past can help save her nephew.
Eboni Snoe has a wonderfully intriguing and unique voice that makes it a pleasure to visit the worlds she creates. Make sure WISHIN ON A STAR is on your list of to-be-read books! (Jul., 384 pp., $5.99)
