TammyMassachusettsAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Must Read!November 30, 2013TammyMassachusettsAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5FRIDAY'S CHILD is another thrilling installment in a 7 book series by Clare Revell. Like the others, this one is packed with romance and suspense. After fourteen years, Patrick Page is reunited with the girl he fell in love with at university, Elle Harrison. But Elle is hiding something - the truth about why she left Patrick all those years ago...their daughter. She's got other secrets, too, but when someone threatens her and MI5 gets involved, Patrick must protect Elle without letting his emotions get involved. Which proves impossible. As the romantic tension ratchets up so do the stakes. Now Elle's daughter's life is in danger. Patrick and Elle struggle to work through what happened in the past and figure out if they can have a future. Then MI5 learns that Elle has connections to the drug smuggling case Patrick has been working. Is she involved in criminal activity?
What's nice about this romantic suspense story is that while the tension stays taut and conflicts abound, there's no melodrama. Abbie, Elle's daughter, is a true-to-life teenager complete with sarcasm and "it's all about me" hurt feelings. Patrick still loves Elle but now he's spent over a decade married to his job - he can't just stop being a spy. He isn't always understanding and patient. Sometimes he is bossy and demanding, without explaining himself. Very realistic and brings his character to life. Elle isn't just all "oh, I can't tell him, woe is me"! She is focused on making enough money to get out of the nightclub scene and keeping Abbie safe. Again, a real and 3-dimensional character.
And then there's the British aspect. Americans love all things British, it seems. There's plenty of things in here that are very different from what we do or say here in the U.S. but with enough additional context to be easily understood. It's fun reading about another culture, taking a peek at how they do things on the other side of "the pond." Yet, the message of God's forgiveness, the idea of love conquering all, and the good old-fashion good guys vs. bad guys suspense is universal.
A must read for romantic suspense fans!
