Excellent book - a real page turner. And a twist at the end I was not expecting!
Dr. Rita Brooks is a psychologist who has a few hang ups of her own. Her nose bleeds when she is confronted by strong forceful men. Something due to her relationship with her father. She lives in Boston. She meets a seemingly gentle, considerate, gentleman on-line.
Brian La Porta lives in New Orleans and runs a hotel. He has tried to convince Rita to come and meet him. As the story opens he catches someone in his house and follows them up to the roof where he is pushed off, he winds up in a coma. A day later Rita is run off the road and almost killed, she winds up in a coma. Although they have never met somehow they recognize each other in the grey place both have come to. Brian touches Rita and passes some memories to her.
Christopher LaPorta comes to Boston after finding an e-mail from Rita to Brian, everyone thinks Brian tried to commit suicide, Rita knows he was pushed. She doesn't know who did it and is reluctant to tell anyone about her experience. Rita refuses to talk to chris about the 4 days she was in a coma. HE tells her Brian has been in a coma for 6 weeks.
Finally realizing someone tried to kill her and knowing someone pushed Brian off the roof, Rita heads to New Orleans. Eventually Chris and Rita have to discover the secrets Brian has been keeping. As more of the memories she received from Brian surface, they realize there is a killer loose at Marti Gras.
She is about the best I have found for romantic suspense. I LOVE her and this was EXCELLENT!!
Interesting storyline that kept you guessing to the very end.
On the brink of falling for a man she met on the Internet, Dr. Rita Brooks naively assumes Brian LaPort is everything he says he is...and all that she's hoped for. But before she can come face to face with him, Rita is nearly killed in a horrific accident. Or was it an accident at all?
Emerging at last from a disturbing, vision-plagued coma, Rita is confronted by a stranger who is convinced she knows more than she's telling about her own past-and his brother's. Cryptic e-mail records have led Christopher LaPorte to Rita while Brian lies near death in New Orleans from a suicide attempt. Or was it?
Desperate to unlock her own muddled memories as well as Brian's secrets, Rita returns with Christopher to New Orleans. There, amidst the chaotic revelry of Mardi Gras, she is plunged into a bizarre masquerade where elaborate masks cleverly conceal familiar faces-as well as murderous intent...
Predictable beach read. Good for an afternoon.
What she does know can hurt her ... what she doesn't know can kill her.
Mystery and excitement during Mardi Gras where no one knows who the real players are.
ON the brink of falling for a man she met on the internet, Dr Rita Brooks naively assumes Brian LaPorte is everything he says he is....but before she can come face to face with him she is nearly killed in a horrific accident. Or was it and accident?
Nothing is as it seems. One is is put in a coma by an accident and her e-mail pal commits suside.
Or does he?
This is the first book I've read by this author and you can bet I'll be getting more! I really enjoyed this book.
This story is based in New Orleans. A little romance and a little mystery.
