Review: The Choice, An Engrossing & Powerful Supernatural Romantic Suspense
The Choice, An Engrossing & Powerful Supernatural Romantic Suspense by Lorhainne Eckhart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Please note: I read this book in January 2012 from a copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
My Synopsis: Marcie is crazy in love with Dan, and will do anything for him - even carry marijuana on the plane from Washington state to New Orleans. However, once there she is robbed and shoved, hitting her head on the cement in the process - and losing her memory. Enter Sam, a former DEA agent whose investigation against Lance Silver - one of the biggest drug lords that runs the west coast - has just gone south, leaving him confused and seeking solace in his home town. His chivalrous nature causes him to stop to help Marcie - and he ends up entangled in her mess. As they explore the problem, and their pasts, and Marcie starts to listen to her spirit guides, they learn that they are embroiled in a generations-long struggle with a dark entity, who seeks to destroy them as it has destroyed their ancestors. Marcie needs to make a choice, to turn back and walk the right path. Is she strong enough to do so?
My Thoughts: A mystical romantic suspense, "The Choice" is a fascinating read, and one I highly enjoyed. I was particularly impressed with the author's knowledge of Tarot and how to read the cards. This book rates up with Doorway to the Triquetra as far as the importance of its lessons, and anyone interested in spirituality should enjoy this book as much as I did. I liked how the author developed the characters, and I especially liked the character of Diane - I'd love to see a book focusing on her, as I think she is a fascinating character. Strongly recommended for fans of romance, romantic suspense, and spirituality.
Edited additional information: I should point out that I normally don't like romance novels, so they have to be something special for me to enjoy them, and this one was. It is also the first book in a series; there are four books total, or you can buy a "box set" with all four books rather than picking them up individually. If you like this author's style, she has a number of other books and another series. In fact, there is currently a giveaway running for her Outsider series, you can check that out here (starting 11/21/13).
