Reviewed by Raanan Geberer for Readers' Favorite The Cocktail by Theresa Schevis is about a group of friends in an upper-middle-class area of the North Bronx who have known each other since high school and have stable relationships and successful careers. Their comfortable world is shattered, however, when the narrator, Linda, wakes up after a party and finds herself next to her friend’s husband – and neither one remembers anything. It turns out that the wine was tampered with and mixed with a mind-altering drug. After finding out that there have been several similar cases in the neighborhood, Brian, a friend who works for the FBI, begins to investigate. Just as Brian begins closing in on Mike – who has been drugging people for money at the request of an unseen “doctor” – Mike gets killed by his girlfriend in a quarrel over money. That should close the books on the problem – but it turns out that it’s just begun. The Cocktail by Theresa Schevis is an exciting mystery thriller. The many twists and turns in the plot will keep you on edge and have you wondering who is really behind the drug scheme, and why. Theresa Schevis does a good job of describing the semi-suburban milieu that these people inhabit – their houses, the restaurants they go to, their relationships with their parents, and even the hospitals where several of them unfortunately end up. There are heroes, there are villains, and there is even a character with two personalities – one good and one bad. Fans of crime thrillers will definitely enjoy The Cocktail.
This book was intense and well written, the author created characters realistically. There was a lot of twists and turns and her style of writing reminded me of one of my favorite author.. The author explained all the events thoroughly, and story never lacked anticipation. I am looking forward to a sequel if one is ever written, keeping my eyes and ears open.
I am not what you call a reader. This book held my attention and it never bored me. I would get annoyed if the telephone rang and I was interrupted. The book flowed consistently, and I was never at a loss. The author always changed scenes with ease. I am sorry it ended. I hope there is a sequel.
I enjoyed reading The Cocktail it was what you would call a fast read; with suspense in every chapter. The author had a way of capturing the emotions of the characters, and made you feel you were part of their lives.
