This book is the last of a of the 4 part NightHawk series, which I am really sad to say. However (and I have everything crossed) I am hoping that there will further installments in Gideon and Abi’s story – hint, hint Ms Richey!
This story in the series focused more on Abi and her daughter, and their quest to uncover the truth about a mysterious painting and the more mysterious life of Abi’s mother. With a large chunk of the book being set in Paris, and what is there not to love about Paris. Especially as we are drawn back into the stunning era of the 1920’s which Richey has captured beautifully, with her vivid descriptions. I could almost smell the croissants! .
I love how the author transports us from present to past through out the series and how it all cleverly ties in,revealing little snippets, not only in advancing the plot but also into the characters motivations and feelings.
And not to be disappointed Gideon’s and Abi’s relationship is tested yet again. Gideon’s life as a rock star seems to attract all the wrong attention. Whilst he’s away promoting his album in America gossip stirs in the press about a woman by his side. A woman who isn’t his wife Abi.
Is there an innocent explanation? Or as the old adage goes.. there’s no smoke without fire! – You’ll just have to read to find out!
Although this can be read as a standalone book, I personally think you have to read the series from beginning to end. What is more delicious than getting your hands on a series? Especially now as all 4 books are written. So if you have a holiday approaching or a few lazy days I highly recommend you get stuck in – from start to finish ,and this book will be all the more sweeter for having done so
What I ultimately love about this series is the unfurling of the love and romance between Gideon and Abby from their teens to present day. The real life struggles that mar their world and how they somehow find the strength, particularly Abi, to push through against the odds.
This intertwined with the mystery and suspense tha runs through Ms Richey’s books is a delight.
I couldn’t recommend the book enough, but more so the whole series.
