From intriguing characters with a little extra, to a new puzzle to solve, Ms. Krentz delivers another wonderful story that envelopes you. For the first time in many novels, the Arcane Society is nowhere to be seen but we meet a new family with secrets to keep. The Coppersmiths, I hope will be around for 'books' to come. I can see so many interesting possibilites, I can hardly wait for my next visit through Ms. Krentz's world.

I always enjoy Ms. Krentz’s books, and this was no exception. She writes with style and panache, creating delectable candy books that I love to devour. Copper Beach was a good opening effort to a new series; however I do feel that much of the creative force in this book was spent on set-up for future installments and not particularly on the story within it. The characterization in a lot of places seemed a bit rushed, and some of the secondary characters felt a little like space-holders, awaiting future books to actually mean anything. The plot also felt the pinch of a new series start-up, spending lots of time cementing elements for future use and wrapping up this story with a hat-trick. I feel that this series has lots of room to grow, and I will enjoy taking the journey with these characters and exploring the world that is being created, but there is still a ways to go before we get to that complete world or fleshed-out series. This is the first book from Ms. Krentz in quite some time that has not been a part of her Arcane Society series. While I happened to thoroughly enjoy the Arcane series I do understand the need to do different things and that all of Ms. Krentz’s fans might not want to only read in that universe. That said, as far as I can see the biggest difference so far in her Dark Legacy series vs. the Arcane is the history and known secondary characters. We are still immersed in the world of the paranormal, but this time we’re working without a net. Abby Radwell was an interesting character, and I happen to adore the concept of her being able to “unlock” psychic code in books. Her history was richly woven even if she bore a lot of the brunt of working without a net when it came to dealing with the peculiarly of her paranormal gifts. With that in mind I found it a bit difficult to embrace her easy acceptance of our hero Sam Coppersmith. With Sam we have a different story. The rare earths and ability to psychically interact with crystals I had zero problem with, I also dig his near-genius talents in designing and creating mechanical mechanisms based on that crystal ability. Sam turned out to be the well-rounded character in this book for me, even if much of his past and endeavors remain hidden.

Contemporary paranormal/adventure romance. Dangerous adversaries are seeking the secret of powerful crystals discovered years earlier. Abby is the only one who can decode the psychically encrypted lab book that describes how to unleash their power. Sam Coppersmith comes to her aid to protect her from would-be kidnappers and murderers. Typical Krentz, with enough twists to keep it from being too predictable. Enjoyable light read. As always, the interactions between the two leads is great. Spicy romance, but nothing over the top. Love the suspense. I'll be sure to buy the next books in the series.

Totally adicted to Jayne Ann Krentz/Jayne Castle/Amanda Quick books this one does not disappoint. The first book in a new series this is exciting. More pseudo science than the Arcane books this is a good fit both for those who like the Arcane series of books and for tnose who prefer their fiction reading without the paranormal.

Jayne continues to show why she is one of the top writers in the world with this book. Her character and plot development are both excellent. This is one book you won't put down until you are done

I enjoyed reading this book. I have always enjoyed reading Jayne Ann Krentz's books, no matter what name she goes under. It is a paranormal mystery with the paranormal powers in crystals and books. It is also a delightful love story between Sam and Abby. The best part of the book for me takes place on Sam's remote island. His family has their own island. Sam has a unique laboratory in the basement of his house. Some people believe that Sam killed his ex-fiancee but the islanders believe in him. They believe that he's too smart to have killed someone and then left obvious clues to himself. A party is given by Sam's family on the island but of course, it's not a simple party.

I miss the j.a.k. stories that she used to write...like "coral kiss", "golden chance" etc. Ms. Krentz's stories the last several years have been a cold romance with a lot of science
