#TuesdayBookBlog – Myth and Magic by Mae Clair

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

“As children, they played games of myth and magic . . . .” 

An old inn with a mysterious past. Ladies in white, ghosting through the trees. Unexplained sobbing noises during the dead of night. Strange happenings, all, and the quest to understand who–or what–is trying to drive guests away from Stone Willow Lodge is at the heart of Mae Clair’s shivery romantic suspense novel.

Anyone who has visited Bookin’ It very often knows that I’m extremely partial to angsty, conflicted men, and heaven knows, private investigator Caithelden Lairen is the very personification of angst and conflict. Born Caithelden Breckwood (his mother has a thing for myth and magic, herself, naming her other sons Galen, Aren, and Merlin), Caith has been estranged from his family for years. A childhood trauma has left him scarred and angry, especially at his father, and thus it is that his son, Derrick, has never even met his grandather.

When Breckwood Industries (the family firm that has made, and kept, the Breckwoods extremely wealthy) hires Caithelden to investigate the shenanigans going on at Stone Willow Lodge, their company retreat, he must return to his home town of Coldcreek, facing both his family, and Veronica Kent, the only woman he’s ever loved. And therein lies the romance part of this romantic suspense.

Mae Clair’s writing is excellent–clean, solid, and well-paced–and she leads the reader on a tense and riveting journey, from the opening chapter to the last page. I thoroughly enjoyed Myth and Magic, and I highly recommend it, especially to fans of mystery, romance, and spooky encounters with things that go bump in the night.
