The Two Margheritas

This is a story set during two different time periods, 800 years apart, revolving around a girl named Margherita. One during the 13th century and the during the 21st. This was the second time I read a book with two time periods and I enjoyed it.

Margherita from the 13th century is born to a poor farmer who remarries after her mother dies. Her stepmother isn’t warm and therefore, Margherita is completely eliminated from the family. She grows up wanting to leave home and finding someone rich to fall in love and be married while Margherita from the 20th century is bold and filled with sexual desires. Both of them were portrayed to be smart women for their time and age.

The story is slow which gave way for good character development. The plot of the book kept me going. A tale that revolves around a philosophical belief has my attention.

The writing seemed a tad bit amateur but given that it’s based around Italy, you can give the dialogues the benefit of doubt as if this was intentionally written.

The prologue of the book suggests the story on reincarnation and the linkage of two girls across centuries. The story seems to depict Margherita to be reincarnated although it displays the characteristics of possession according to the classical definition. We probably wouldn’t understand the entire truth and difference between reincarnation and possession but this book got me reading a lot about and the different phenomenons of reincarnation. Perhaps, this is what Uri J. Nachimson was getting at.

The Diary of Jane

The story revolves around Kelley Stockman who moves in with her uncle and aunt after the death of her parents at the age of sixteen. Two years later, Karen, Kelley’s aunt gets a call about inheriting her dead brother’s mansion and five million dollars.
The mansion, Kelley soon realizes, is haunted by a girl who lived there earlier.

As clichéd as this sounds, the plot and the events that take place are enjoyable. However, it was a difficult book to read with all the grammatical and punctuation errors. If not for the storyline, I would have stopped the book midway.

Even though there is a diary written by Jane and it was one of the important bits, I felt the story didn’t revolve much around it. R.K. Lane could have come up with another title altogether. Looking at the title, I was hoping there would be more to the diary than what was mentioned.

If you are okay with reading through errors, this book is not so bad. Horror is my favorite genre and I enjoyed this one.

Armitage

A lot of murder cases have been on the rise in Armitage. Madeline Jameson, a university student, soon realizes she might be the next target after a fateful night when she gets attacked. And the story ensues from there on.

Richard Kirk is definitely high on creative power. I was impressed with certain details in the story. However, a fellow critic pointed out on the lack of character development to which I absolutely agree. This makes the story lack certain depth to it when it has a huge potential of doing so.

I do not want to give away anymore spoilers since this book is worth the read and the way Richard Kirk revealed the suspense is worth looking forward to - something I did not see coming at all.

Forbidden

Marcy was a high school student at Springdale, portrayed to be very mature for her age, who in the beginning of the book gets dumped by her boyfriend on the day they completed six months. Surely, he cheated on her leaving her absolutely devastated.
The very day she meets Gray, a customer at the coffee shop Marcy worked at during the summer. He’s a little old but way too charming. They decide to go on a couple of dates and hit it off very well. Their physical and emotional chemistry is fierce making both of them fall for each other instantly. A week later, Marcy and Gray have the shock of their lives when they meet again. This time, not on a date but, in her French class. He was her teacher.
The rest of the story is all about how difficult it is for them to keep away from each other and the turmoil they go through.
After years, I have decided to read a book under the “Romance” category and I definitely don’t regret choosing Noel Cades’ French Kissing.
It’s a forbidden love story between a student and a teacher and that’s mainly the reason why this book gets very hot and steamy as you keep reading it. This book, however, comes under the category of “Romance” more than “Erotica” despite a few saucy scenes.

Betwitching

Victor Abbot is a talented architect filled with crazy but brilliant ideas. He is mellow and very much to himself. Quite often, he is seen thinking about his mother and all the bedtime stories about the Greek mythology she would narrate to him when he was a child.

The story takes an eventful turn when Victor is knocked out in a car accident during his stay in Rome, Italy. He wakes up to find out that he has been in a coma for more than a year and was rescued by a lady who is called “the mistress”, the owner of The Moonflower Hotel.

Bewitching, is the term I’ll use for this book. I found it very difficult to stop myself from reading this as I was extremely latched onto the story. I love how Roxana Chirila kept the book short and yet, every little detail was well-drafted taking your imagination to a good level. There was mystery and a tinge melancholy until the very end. Giving away too many details of the story will only lead to me giving away the mystery element of it.

A must-read for those who dig mystery and fantasy.
