"Gothic style romance - reincarnation and love guide Mary & Alex's present, but they choose future"
If you like reincarnation with a definite gothic viewpoint,
then TANGLED MEMORIES should be on your 'must read' list of
book. The story is tame in the romance scenes and would be
acceptable to most readers.
Obstetrician Dr. Alex Dominican's infant daughter needed a
mother and Kindergarten teacher Mary Adams needed to have
debts paid after her husband's death. Falling in love was
not part of their marriage-of-convenience, but soon Mary
realizes that the unknown fascination she has held for Alex
was truly love.
Ever since her marriage to Alex, Mary has been having
flashbacks to the fourteenth century. Even more
frightening is that someone in Alex's home hates her enough
to threaten her but her husband denies her
concerns. Admittedly rather than a brooding hero, Alex
sometimes comes across as a jerk. Spilled perfume, slashed
bedding and being locked in the basement cause her concern,
but when her cat is killed and then its body disappears,
Alex questions her sanity and Mary worries not only about
herself, but also for the baby's safety.
The story is written in first person, as are many gothic
tales and Mary's thoughts and feelings draw you into the
story. Although she does not believe in reincarnation, the
flashbacks bring Mary in and out of the past until she has
only one explanation of what is happening. The plot runs
smoothly without disorientation about the changes in scenes
as it is clearly written and as true romances, it has a
happy ending for the hero and heroine.
