Wednesday Random Recommendation...(4)
Midnight in Ruby Bayou:
Faith Donovan has poured her heart and soul into making exquisite artistic jewelry favored by the rich and famous. Her creations require rubles of the finest quality. To get such gems, Faith, whom experience has taught to trust NO man outside her family, must work with Owen Walker, an easy-going Southerner with an intimate knowledge of the ruby trade and mans murderous greed. Faith and Walker travel to Savannah to seek the help of the Montegeaus, a family reputed to be in possession of a fortune in fine gems. Drawn into a terrifying web of greed, corruption, and betrayal, Faith and Walker discover the dark and shameful secrets of generations of Montegeaus. Horrified by what they have learned and the danger that is closing in on them, they race for their lives across the black water of the salt marshes-pursued by greedy men and a deadly past.
Midnight in Ruby Bayou by Elizabeth Lowell was first published in 2000 and is the forth book in the Donovan series, filled with edge of your seat romantic suspense and page turning anticipation for what is to come next! I strongly suggest reading the first three books in this series: Amber Beach, Jade Island, and Pearl Cove before reading this book, although the novel can be read as a standalone, there is a lot of history in the previous three novels that will increase your enjoyment of Faith and Owen's story.
I invite and welcome anyone interested in participating to post their own "Random Recommendation" (original post) on their blog (and include a link back to this blog) and join in the fun! Some books might not be very recent reads, but I hope that just helps these (sometimes forgotten) books earn a spot on your own bookshelf!
