Plot Synopsis: Part ghost story, part treasure hunt, part romance, A Force of Nature is all entertainment!!
Do you believe in Fate? Would you recognize it if it was happening
to you? Then you'll want to meet Toronto PR guru Claire Chandler. She
grew up convinced greatness awaited her. Why else had she survived a
series of bizarre childhood tragedies? Yet she doesn't see what's coming
when she journeys north on a long weekend in August to Bay Harbour, a
post-card pretty tourist town on the edge of Canada's popular Georgian
Bay vacationlands. She thinks she's there to reconnect with a former
mentor. But Chandler's chilling affinity for the “unnatural and
unexplained”, a macabre “gift” that once made her a freak of nature to
classmates, will make her a force of Nature. Shadowed by a ghostly white
wolf and haunted by the victims of a long-dead killer, she'll discover a
startling new ending to a fifty year-old mystery. She'll also discover
romance with Tom Katz, an affable, treasure-hunting bush pilot with a
reputation for living up to his name. They're an unlikely pair and
Chandler thinks it's just a summer fling. Instead, a series of
white-knuckle adventures will bring them to a time, a place and a choice
that will forever link their lives.
Book Review :
A Force of Nature was a brilliant,fast paced and well written novel from beginning to end. I don't usually read this genre but found that I enjoyed this mystery immensely.
Claire and Tom were both strong characters and I loved reading the different plot angles that led to the ultimate finale.This engaging story unfolded in the midst of danger, adventure and romance which I would recommend to anyone who enjoys Mystery/Supernatural.
Rating : **** ( 4 stars )
