Savannah Blake discovers her father's body, catapulting her
into a mission to find her father's killer. Her sisters,
Montana and Asia, are less obsessed and more inclined to
move on. Savannah is bound and determined, even if she
has to go it alone. But Savannah finds herself anything but
alone when Troy
Bridges, owner of a private security firm and a former
colleague of her father's, shows up to offer his help and
protection. Given a personal past between them that ended
on a sour note, Savannah doesn't trust him, until she begins
to wonder whether he's the only person she can trust.
Shelia Goss is a storyteller. The reader is taken on a ride
with twists and turns and many blind curves. I enjoyed the
development of the romance between Savannah and Troy, and
the suspenseful search for Major Blake's killer. Although
overall SAVANNAH's CURSE is a good story, I didn't enjoy
reading it quite as much as I had hoped. I found the
dialogue, whether a character spoke in slang or didn't, to
be inconsistent, which served to jar me out of the story at
times. Then, there were a few pivotal story incidents that
I simply didn't buy, such as when a character was described
as one type of person but then agreed to do something
completely against character without hesitation and without
Putting these things aside, SAVANNAH'S CURSE is an
intriguing read. It hosts an unusual cadre of characters,
starting with the Blake sisters, and I can easily see how a
series might arise from this novel. Each sister brought
flavor to the story in her own right, not to mention the
unique, security-oriented skills they each possess which
together make them a formidable team. Montana and Asia are
deserving of their own stories.
