Trouble [New Crescent 1] by Mary Lou George

Gillian Watson wakes from a coma with a hazy memory and a powerful, yet unpredictable gift. In order to recover, she moves to the enchanting little New England town of New Crescent where she's welcomed by everyone. Everyone that is, except the much admired sheriff, Travis Sinclair. Travis knows in his gut that Gillian's arrival heralds trouble for his beloved town, but there's a searing chemical reaction between them that he's powerless to resist. He can't seem to stay away from her. When a brutal serial rapist strikes, Gillian uses her uncanny ability to help Travis solve the crimes. She finds herself intimately involved with the investigation and the sexy sheriff. Will her unique perspective on the crimes make her the rapist's next victim? And what's it all got to do with her own mysterious past? Will she ever remember those lost hours? Should she want to? *** "All my friends want to live in New Crescent and I can't blame them. I do, too. I'm not sure I'd like to be a major character in some of the stories though. I'm not courageous enough to face the challenges my wicked imagination has created for them. Maybe I could be an eccentric writer who lives down the road." ~Mary~ 4.5 Pixies: "Trouble is a wonderfully complex mystery that had me guessing almost to the end. I had a hunch about the bad guy, but Ms. George does an excellent job of keeping secrets veiled until she is ready to present them. The romance in the story is awesome and builds in a realistic way; I really like Gillian and Travis, as they are true-to-life, funny, quirky, and easy to relate to. The paranormal aspects in this tale spice up the everyday mysteries and give our hero and heroine just enough of an edge to fight, and Ms. George did an excellent job of blending all elements into a terrific story. Background characters and the town of New Crescent add richness and color and create a world you will want to come back to. Which is a good thing as Trouble is book one in the New Crescent series. I will be anxiously awaiting the next tale!" -- Dark Angel Reviews *** 4 Books: "In Trouble, Mary Lou George introduces the reader into the quirky and welcoming town of New Crescent, with its unusual history and exceptional way of life. Gillian will need to master her power to solve the crimes suddenly plaguing the peaceful town, but in doing so, she will take a place she never expected in the old community. As Gillian and Travis grow closer, the reader will inevitably fall in love with New Crescent and wish it were a real place, as wonderfully magical as the dollhouse-like house on the cliff Gillian purchases on her first day in New Crescent. In that detail alone, Mary Lou George manages to sum up the longing we all have for the perfect home. But the dark threat hanging over the heroes, and the uncertainties of the reality which the author weaves into her tale, allows the author to maintain the fragile balance of magical realism throughout the book, without ever tilting either into the artificiality of a fairy tale, or into the grittiness of stark suspense. Instead, we meet an array of quirky, colorful characters, brightly painted surroundings, and discover a fascinating history. We fall in love with Gillian and Travis; we wish we could pick up an atlas and search for New Crescent if we only knew what the "city" nearby was." -- Long and Short Reviews *** 4 Stars: "Mary Lou George creates an excellent plot in her book Trouble. This book is the first in a new series, New Crescent 1. The characters are likeable and well-developed. Who wouldn't love Hank? I did suspect early in the book who the rapist was, but that did not diminish the pleasure of reading this book. Fans of romance and suspense will enjoy Trouble. I look forward to reading the next installment." --Review Your Book
