Mortal Coil:First of four books with Champagne Books: Author: Julie Eberhart Painter Author’s website: Publisher: Champagne Books at Release Date: May 2009 ISBN: 9781897445914 Length: Novel Format: Electronic and in paperback available from and : Contemporary Romantic Mystery/Suspense Sensuality Level: 2 Rating: 4.75 Widowed single mother Ellen Lange is caught in the middle of a police investigation after two of her elderly residents are murdered. She never figured being the administrator of the Kingsley nursing home would include fending off questions about a serial killer from one very attractive detective. Between parenting her 10-year-old daughter and still reeling from the death of her beloved husband, Ellen finds herself shying away from the attraction she feels for the detective. Special Investigator Bill Watts is on the case of the Ponytail Perp and has more than just questioning in mind when he meets Ellen. With a killer at large, and his concern for Ellen escalating, as new evidence appears that may concern her, Bill finds himself wanting to spend more and more time with her and her daughter. He just has to convince Ellen that he is there for the long haul. ******** Reviewed by Teagan of BookWenches, an independent reviewer. In this story, the interaction among the characters is wonderfully written, giving the reader a dose of witty humor and edge-of-your-seat suspense. I even teared up at one point and had to grab the tissues. This book intrigues the reader on so many levels. It will appeal to many people, as it weaves so many different genres into one story. I enjoyed Ellen’s strength of character and her commitment to her daughter. It spoke to me as a parent, and added to the realistic feel of this story. The author has wrapped a sweet romance, fraught with the typical problems of relationships, inside a suspense that seems straight out of true crime. It meshes together for an exceptional story. I found myself unable to put it down and at no point did I suspect what the mystery might be, Ms. Painter does a fabulous job of keeping the reader guessing right up to the end. If you are in the mood for a story that will play on your emotions, and keep you in suspense at the same time, this is a book for you. --Teagan NEW BOOK: Tangled Web: Wilkes-Barre’s cohesive Welsh community was a haven of Protestant values and mutual support. It was also a hornet’s nest of gossip. Neither a canary’s death nor a girl’s fall from grace escaped the locals chatter Good girls avoided the attention of the grandmothers’ grapevine by behaving—in public—as ladies were expected to behave with good manners and self-control. In private, emotions roiled, passions were explored, appetites satiated, and the end results “talked about.” Or hidden. Reviews: "Julie Eberhart Painter is a true wordsmith who knows how to tell a compelling story. In Tangled Web, she displays her many talents as an accomplished author, not the least of which is her skill at creating authentic, credible historic settings—in this case, a Pennsylvania coal-mining community in the 1930s. I highly recommend reading Julie's novels." Marcia Ford, author of We the Purple and 25 additional books Julie Painter’s new novel, Tangled Web, describes the undercurrents of family relationships in eastern Pennsylvania in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. Out of wedlock pregnancy, corrupt adoption practices, and alcohol rehabilitation act as backdrops to this engaging fast paced saga centered around a young woman, Catherine, and her quest for love and self expression. Julie follows several families as they struggle to maintain equilibrium and cohesiveness in a time of social and political unrest and change An important thread of the book is the negative effect of dishonest adoption policies on biological parents, adoptive parents, and adoptees. Julie’s characters come alive because their strengths and vulnerabilities are described so vividly. Many are given opportunities to rectify past mistakes and are able to take advantage of “second chances.” Tangled Web is a must read for the discriminating reader interested in serious romantic fiction.
