The Garoul series has always been one of my most favorites to read. I have adored each book and been captivated by the characters that have jumped off their pages. I had no idea what to think about going back to the beginning and telling Connie and Sylvie’s story (set in the late 1970s) but I was in for whatever adventure Gill McKnight was going to throw my way.
Connie Fortune is in the Little Dip area to photograph and illustrate the Yellow Cukoo. A bird the has recently been placed on the endangered species list and is extremely rare to be seen in North America. Connie’s quest for the elusive bird drops her right into the path of Sylvie Garoul.
Marie Garoul has been brought back to Little Dip to help her mother/pack leader work on the family almanac. Marie and Connie clash from the minute they meet. There is that pull towards each other but their heads and smartass comments keep them circling each other the majority of the book. Tensions and high and so is the attraction.
Beware once you start this one you will have a hard time putting it down. As always Gill Mcknight dazzles us with her storytelling. You couldn’t ask for a better escape. This book is fun, sexy and so well written. I sincerely hope that we see more Garouls soon!
***Note if you haven’t read any of the books in this series you can absolutely start with this one!
