Wildfire at Midnight
Wildfire at Midnight - Mary Stewart

This was an interesting first dip into the works of Mary Stewart. 

 

Stewart created an atmosphere for the story that was almost tangible. It beautifully written and very much made me feel like I was there, on Skye, on a overcast day, just waiting for the clouds to break. 

 

Unfortunately, the main characters and the utterly implausible, ridiculous plot left the book wanting. It mostly wanted a good slap. 

 

I also wish the leading woman had pushed her ex-husband off the ferry at the end. 

 

Still, I'm keen to try another one of Stewart's.

Why did you kill Heather Macrae?’

He looked to me in surprise.

‘They wanted it.’

‘They?’

‘The mountains.’

 

Whaaaa....?!?!? 

This book did not improve in the second half. Now, we're getting to read the incredible wrap-up .

This is a somewhat contrived story. And I am saying that as a regular reader of plots that are riddled with convenient twists and dreamt-up coincidences.

 

Anyway, the likelihood of a demented serial killer on an island that preys on only a single group of people, and no police having made any appearance at all yet, not even a single village bobby, ... even I'm going to say that this is a bit far-fetched.

Halloween Bingo - Romantic Suspense
Wildfire at Midnight - Mary Stewart

I'm bracing the Romantic Suspense square next. It is the square I have probably struggled with most.

 

However, I seem to have seen so many great reviews for Mary Stewart's books that I just have to try some of her work. 

 

This one seemed like a lot of fun:

 

Beautiful but troubled, Gianetta cannot seem to escape her past, her pain, or her ex-husband -- not even in a remote hotel on the Scottish Isle of Skye. One of her fellow guests, however, is also hiding secrets . . . and a skill and penchant for murder. And now the killer only has eyes for Gianetta . . .

Love is a Wildfire (Love in the Vineyards Book 4) by Kate Kisset
Love is a Wildfire - Kate Kisset

 

There must be something in the water in California wine country. Strong willed heroines, alpha males and delicious scenery set the stage for romance in Love is a Wildfire. Against the backdrop of a raging fire and an even hotter attraction, Kisset takes readers on an adventure unlike any other. Small town romance equals big city drama and makes for captivating storytelling.
