Sunday Synopsis

Kiss of the Sun (Martha Covington #2)Kiss of the Sun by R.K. Jackson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I read the first Martha Congington Book, The Girl in the Maze, and I enjoyed it. I enjoyed this one until I was about one-third through it.. Then it became too predictable and too far fetched. I kept expecting Sheldon Cooper to pop up and say, "Bazinga!" (I think I felt this way about another book I read not too long ago.)

Martha is living on Shell Heap Island off the coast of Georgia at the beginning of the book. She has recently written and published a book about the Geechees, descendants of slaves who settled on the island. Their belief in healing herbs has fascinated Martha, and she begins to adopt some of their beliefs. The relaxed lifestyle of the island helps her deal with her schizophrenia. In fact, she hasn't had an "episode" in a while.

When an elderly couple from Atlanta asks for her help in finding their grandson Peavy. Martha, believing she may have psychic abilities, she heads to Atlanta. She once again teams up with Jarrell, who has become a law student (surprise! completely out of character from book one) and - no surprise - they end up walking straight into the danger of a huge conspiracy.

As much as Martha wanted to believe she could sense what happened, I could sense what was about to happen throughout the book, and I wasn't wrong.. If I wanted a story about an every-day super-hero, a secret group of psychopaths, or a medical melodrama, I would read one, but I was hoping for an edge-of-your-seat, mysterious thriller when I chose this book.
