MaryJanice Davidson returns to the blog with the second book in her Danger series
The Love Scam
Told in two perspectives using multiple time jumps, this is classic MJD – twisty, funny, irreverent and full of weird factoids ane stays just this side of believable and plausible which make an all-around wonderful and hard to put down read. This is the story of Rake Tarbell, twin of Blake Tarbell, and all-around irreverent and irredeemable playboy. Aside from taking every opportunity to needle his brother, Rake enjoys his money, his looks and his freewheeling lifestyle to the nth degree.
But waking up in a strange city with no memory of how you got there or the horrible incapacitating hangover that leads you to dropping face first into the Grand Canal in Venice, isn’t a great wake up. Neither is discovering a ‘helpful’ woman with a strangely solemn child in tow, who suddenly leaves you with said child and disappears. After trying to find a telephone and discovering that you not only have no wallet, but no id, no money and no real ability to go to the authorities after being escorted from Venice several years prior – and now with a child to watch over….. it’s pretty dire.
Claire was the mystery woman: with a penchant for helping those who need it, protecting the vulnerable, and making money for a big dream – and Rake happens to fall into line with her plans (and her next ‘assignment”) From twists and turns, to these two very different people who both find camaraderie, attraction and a tentative ‘friendship’ in one another’s company, along with a very unusual child in Lillith – the story twists, turns and leaves everyone laughing (or wondering just what all the end games are. It’s got plenty of steam, lots of banter and that classic not quite straightforward or ‘expected’ characters that Davidson crafts so well. Grab this book – I had no problem jumping into the series at book 2 –but I’ve got book one because this was just SO FUN. The perfect take your mind off EVERYTHING read…..
