Romantic Mystery


Synopsis:
Two souls struggle to fulfill their destiny together, first discovering magical love during a fox hunt in 17th Century England, and again in 19th Century Philadelphia. Each time they are snuffed out by brutal murder, but are reborn a third time, in the 21st Century, where Ashley & Craig meet, becoming fast friends, their love of jumping horses a common bond. Then, as their unfaithful spouses destroy their marriages, they discover much more than friendship, as fate brings them together, and once again their ancient killer may be stalking them!

 My Thoughts:
The prospect of a love that has spanned so many centuries had me anxiously waiting to get my hands on this sure to be memorable tale!

We see the brutal murders of the lovers in 17th Century England then again in 19th Century Philadelphia bringing us to the 21st Century where we meet Ashley in a loveless marriage with her long time husband, with 2 beautiful children and a love of horses. Craig knows his wife has been cheating on him for a long time but has yet to reach his breaking point. The two are in horrible stages of their lives when they meet through their love of horse and they cant shake the feeling of belonging.

This tale HOOKED me from start to finish! Witnessing those murders in the beginning and gaining a connection to the two lovers makes you race through the book. Horses are what bring the two together but it does not overpower the love story and concept that we receive. I loved the mystery of who the killer is (we don’t know till the very very end!), I was guessing the whole entire time. : ) There are twists and accepting the possibility of reincarnation and past lives. Man can Bernstein write a love story! He knows just how to get you to love the people he wants you to love and hate the ones that he intends for hatred. Marvelous!

I really enjoyed this book and I cant wait to see what else Bernstein puts out in this genre! If you are looking for mystery, love, some heartbreak, and destiny….this is for you!

About the Author: 

Rebecca expressed her creative side at an early age and hasn’t stopped since. She won’t hesitate to tell you that she lives inside her imagination, and it’s better than reality.

She’d insert something here along the lines of living in the Northeast, USA, or Europe, with her wonderful husband and their dogs, but these things haven’t happened yet. Instead, she’ll tell you she’s an avid gamer, chocoholic, coffee addict, animal lover, and owns way too many books and shoes.

Synopsis:

Seventeen-year-old Kearly Ashling can travel anywhere her mind takes her—literally. Becoming Empress of the planet Cyeor and battling monstrous, otherworldly creatures isn’t a problem. Living among the elves on the Plains of Glasslyn has yet to be an issue, as well. Even touring normal places like Paris, London, Tokyo, and the Amazon Rainforest isn’t difficult.

But traveling through her imagination isn’t just fun and games—it has consequences. Following a battle on the planet Cyeor, she’s visited by a guy who’s unimagined. He warns her to stop using her gift or they will find her. Kearly doesn’t heed the messenger’s advice and soon wishes she had. When the messenger finds her again, he transports her to the M.I.N.D., a corporation which specializes in “healing the psyche.” Once she’s inside the M.I.N.D.’s doors, however, Kearly realizes escaping is nearly impossible.

Now, she must figure out the M.I.N.D.’s true intent, try not to fall for the irritating-yet-handsome messenger, and find a way to outsmart the organization before they stop her from ever imagining again.

Excerpt:

I sat down in one of the empty desks near the window. In the next row over, Ryan Carter—the local panty-collector and heartbreaker, who was not that attractive, in my opinion—stared at me. What did he want? I narrowed my eyes at him, hoping he’d get the message loud and clear. But he didn’t.
He leaned over and whispered, “I know why you’re late.”
For the briefest of seconds, my heart thrummed so hard against my chest, I thought I was having a mini heart attack. My mind scrambled to come up with a reply, but all I could think was, “He knows about me! He knows my secret!” But there’d be no way, right? Nobody knew about me, about my secret ability. How I could travel anywhere my imagination created.
But I played it off like he was an idiot, who didn’t know his elbow from his asshole. “Oh, really? I highly doubt that, considering you can barely keep up with where the football is during a Friday-night game.”
“Jeez, I was kidding,” he said. “I was gonna say you were smoking again.” One of his shaggy-blond locks hung over his right eye. “I can smell it from here. You should consider quitting, you know, for health reasons.”
“Oh, my God. Thank you so much for reminding me,” I said, faking astonishment. “I’ll be sure to invest what little college fund I have on body spray.”
