December is book release month. Providence, book two of the West Series, is here for Christmas. If you find time over Christmas to put your feet up and get lost in a suspense family saga series, this might be the one for you. Let’s refresh the memory of book one in the series, Destiny.
In Destiny, we meet the matriarch and patriarch of the West family. Dan West and Ellie Clifford. We travel to British Columbia and a bear lodge where they meet. Their journey takes them to the South Australian Outback and Newmarket in the UK. We meet Dan and Ellie’s kids and start to see the dynamics that will play out over the following books.
In Providence, we follow Joe’s story. He is one of Dan’s youngest twin sons. Dan has two sets of twins, and Ellie has one set. Yes, there are a few twins in this series which makes the stories fun. Joe is the rebel. He’s outspoken, and because he’s one of the youngest, he always tries to prove himself to his elder brothers and father. Isabella Rogers is the daughter of Dan West’s arch enemy, Margaret, and Henry Rogers. Right there, we have instant conflict.
After what went down in Destiny, Isabella Rogers has had enough. She flees to Paris and takes a twelve-month contract working as a journalist for an international newspaper. Joe follows her, and when she refuses to return home, he takes a job with an old friend of his father, Walter Kinsley. However, Walter isn’t what he seems. He is out to seal the tunnels beneath Paris streets to stop terrorists from setting up cells and wreaking havoc.
Isabella follows up on a story of homeless people living beneath Paris streets while Joe thinks he’s helping Walter move homeless people to new homes. Neither realises what they’ve gotten involved in until it’s too late to turn back. Homeless people, terrorists and a serial murderer bring this story to a dramatic conclusion.
A review from an ARC Reader:
“Providence by author Suzie Hindmarsh-Knights is a fast-paced and intelligent action adventure.
Engaging and compelling. As the second title in the West series, you will get more of their unique and wonderful story” KS
As the year draws to a close, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year. See you all in 2023.
Until next time
