"Never waste good rum on a bad night." - Teddy Lawless, February 1926. There are many bad nights ahead for Teddy. Shortly after she arrives at the newly opened Vinoy Hotel in Saint Petersburg, she comes face to face with her ex-fiancé, Ansel Stevens, in the dining room. Cue the slap that was thirty years in the making. Unfortunately, her ex-fiancé dies during a yacht race shortly thereafter. Conclusion of the authorities: poison. His family closes ranks, leaving Teddy as the prime suspect. Worse, Teddy's hair comb is found on the deck of Ansel's boat, leading to her swift arrest. Can Cornelia Pettijohn and Uncle Percival save fun-loving Teddy before she goes from the grand hotel to the big house?
FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
I loved that this book began right where Book 1 left off. I got the feeling as I read that, I was on this "vacation" with them. The trio that includes Percival and his two "nieces," Cornelia and Teddy, are on the move again, and once again, trouble seems to follow.
I was sucked into this story a bit more than book 1. While I enjoyed the first book, I found it a bit slow. This one, maybe since I know the characters now, grabbed me immediately. It is written well. I love this trio. They are so fun to read and follow about all over. These books give a bit of mystery, history, and intrigue all in one.
From the vacation antics to the tales from wars long past, this book was definitely one to read when you want to relax.
