A Carpet of Purple Flowers is a tale of faeries, sidhe, witches and more. Bea, a human, is a divorcee who loves comfort and consistency after a tumultuous marriage. Nothing is better than sweet, hot tea and a book. All this changes when she accepts a party invitation and during the evening sees those that should not be seen. Enter characters from another realm to enquire why she has been able to see and talk to those not of this world. Bea’s quiet time of self-healing is blasted by a war between the seelie and unseelie, a sort of ethereal Hatfields and McCoys. Bea finds there is more within her than she ever knew and winds up passionately embroiled in relationships with two men on opposing sides of the sidhe war. Parts of this novel are well written and gripping, especially the fighting scenes, but the romantic scenes are tinged with purple patches. Some of the plot is overwrought, but this is a fast, take you-out-of-your-daily cares kind of read. It is graphic, so there’s a caution.
