Where Lemons Bloom

Where Lemons Bloom 
Blair McDowell
December 2015

When Eve Anderson meets Adamo de Leone on a ship bound for Europe, she has no idea of the dark secret that will endanger both their lives. She accompanies him to his home on Italy’s Amalfi Coast to open an inn left to him by his grandfather. But then she learns he spent five years in prison for a crime he claims he didn’t commit. Could the man she loves be responsible for embezzling eighty million dollars from the investment firm he once owned? Adamo wants to hold Eve at arm’s length until he can clear his proud family name. But when there is an attempt on his life and Eve is terrorized by a gun-bearing thug, he realizes how much he wants her, and he must accept whatever help he can get to uncover the well-hidden trail of a six-year-old crime. 

Between The Pages 
An interesting romance story with a good suspenseful plot. The beginning of the story grabs the reader, but then the plot slows with too many inserts of description of events and places. For me, this caused the story to lose the intensity of the romance, and I found myself skipping over the pages until the half-way point. But near the middle of the story, the suspense and action kick in and holds your attention. The main characters are developed well, and the secondary characters are equally enjoyable. If you like a lot of detailing, then you’ll enjoy the early chapters. The second half of the story captures the attention and gains in intensity, well-worth waiting for.
