The first book in this series: BANNER O'BRIEN, set the stage for the Corbin clan. CORBIN'S FANCY is the second son, Jeff's, story. At the end of the last book, he's devastated by the loss of Banner - she marries his older brother, Adam -- and Jeff sets off to sea.

A catastrophe occurs and Jeff almost dies. After a long recovery, Jeff is of a morbid turn of mind; the family is concerned. The third brother, Keith, takes it upon himself to find a solution; he finds Fancy, a sometimes magician. Fancy also has a side-kick named Herschel - an obese rabbit who is reluctant to help with Fancy's hat tricks.

The first few chapters make sense; Fancy is just what Jeff needs. She's as volatile as he is - but with the chutzpah to react in outrageous ways. This pulls Jeff from his morbid thoughts rather quickly.

Over the years, I've learned that when sex begins by page 49, there is precious little plot included in the tale. Fancy's insecurities became burdensome after awhile. I learned more about Jeff as a person in the first novel. In this book, Jeff and Fancy were just hormone-crazy teen-types; sex - fight - reconcile - sex - fight - reconcile (you get the picture).

I was really looking forward to this story; the first book did a wonderful job of showing Jeff as a strong male lead. Book two turns Jeff into a cartoon - what a waste of a great character!
