"Her first contemporary is as enjoyable as her historicals"
Popular American romantic comedy actress Tracy Collins
is taking quite a risk filming Jealousy, a Regency era
psychological drama. Tracy is on location at the
prestigious SILVERBRIDGE estate though she stays in a hotel
in the nearby town. Tracy befriends shy anorexic Meg
Oliver, younger sister of the owner of SILVERBRIDGE, Harry
who reluctantly rents his place due to the exorbitant
expense to keep his heritage proper.
A fire destroys the hotel so Meg offers rooms in
SILVERBRIDGE to Tracy and her costar, Shakespearean actor
Jon Melbourne. When Tracy meets Harry, she finds him
attractive, but abhors his boorish behavior. As she stays
in his residence, Tracy suffers feelings of déjà vu and
visions of ghosts. On top of her strange reactions,
someone tries to destroy the movie and only Harry can keep
her safe, but who will protect Tracy's heart from her
SILVERBRIDGE is an exciting contemporary romance with
paranormal and suspense elements. The three prime subplots
are well written and actually tie together in a cohesive
manner. At the same, the triad plus two lesser subplots
never allow any key theme to take charge of the tale as if
Joan Wolf could not decide between suspense (movie
sabotage), paranormal (ghosts), or a contemporary romance.
Still the lead couple is a delightful duo and the tale will
satisfy most of the audience.
