I picked this challenge to do:
Single Person from the Covers group
Convinced that she needs an investigator who can also play bodyguard, she hires Sam Coppersmith, a specialist in paranormal crystals and amber-"hot rocks." Passion flares immediately between them, but neither entirely trusts the other. When it comes to dealing with a killer who has paranormal abilities, and a blackmailer who will stop at nothing to obtain an ancient alchemical code, no one is safe.
It's been a while since I read anything by Jayne Ann Krentz. I'm not sure why. It could be that I just read so much of her that I just needed a break. Or it could but that for her historical's at least I didn't care for where they were going.
To be honest it was a little bit of both. I loved her historical's or at least her older ones, and when she moved on to her last few I moved on too. I think when I gave them up and she didn't write any more Castle's which I love those, I just stopped reading her.
So this month I got a bug up the you know what and decided to read her again and grabbed what I had on my shelf. I then put it back because it was book two and grabbed the first one in the trilogy.
I was glad that I did. As I read Copper Beach I remembered why I like her books so much. It made me really miss her as a author. I was able to get into the story right away and enjoy it. I loved the mystery of it and the interaction between Sam and Abby.
The way they acted together made me fall in love again with Krentz. She just makes me smile as I read her books.
I loved Sam, not only does he have a my favorite hero's name he was just a great alpha man who didn't down play what Abby could do. He set out to help her and protect her and did both smashingly. Love these two together.
You have to feel for Abby who has lived most of her life trying to hide what she is from her family because they are horrible people. Uncaring, unloving assholes the whole lot of them. Okay, her half sisters aren't. They seem to really like Abby. The rest...suck!
I love how the mystery doesn't really end with this book even though their story got a ending. I can't wait to read the next book to see what's going on next. Have you read Copper Beach or any other book by Jayne Ann Krentz? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
