Reporter Cody Walker has a problem, he just can't sleep,
has been having increasingly frequent bouts of weakness and
nausea and now he's hearing voices and seeing strange
lights. Cody believes he might be having some kind of
mental breakdown but he had enough poking and prodding by
doctors following his unexplained disappearance a year ago
and refuses to suffer more.
Roberta Vandenburg, Cody's neighbor has her own theory
about Cody's illness. Roberta is a UFO researcher; she
believes that Cody may be experiencing flashbacks and that
his six week absence may have been the result of an alien
abduction. Roberta has seen the symptoms before linked to
abductions she has investigated; she just has to convince
her handsome, skeptical neighbor -- before it happens again.
Cody may not remember exactly where he disappeared to a
year ago, but alien abduction? .....Yeah Right!
In this engaging sequel to BLUE DAWN Norah-Jean Perkins
succeeds in reforming the previously unlikable character of
Cody Walker and making him very appealing indeed. I found,
at first, I did not like the character of Roberta very
much as she seemed determined to use Cody for her own gain
(a role we are perhaps more used to seeing the male
character in) however true to the genre she redeems herself
towards the end and I was cheering them on to a happy ever
after. This book does stand on its own; however, a few
loose ends from the first book are tied up more
satisfactorily in this one. Having read BLUE DAWN and CRAZY
IN CHICAGO I would recommend buying both books and reading
them in order.
