"Fire Lily" by Deborah Camp
"Fire Lily" was indeed quite a fascinating read where Lily Jane Meeker and Griffon Golforth come together and with their psychic powers are able to find Cecille Meeker who was a cousin of Lily. What will happen when Lily finds out that she has the ability to read ones mind and share her dreams? Also with her 'Tactile Memory Lily was able to touch things and sense things about them.' Why did it seem to be a problem for her to admit she had this psychic powers to be able to do this? What had happened earlier in her life where Lily seem to want to shut it all out about her memory? Who was Griffon Golforth who was of the American Society of Psychic Research and seemed to be able to figure out Lily powers so very well? Why had he been hired by this family?
This was really a intriguing story in how this author puts this story all together in this historical romantic read that will bring out the 'sexy, mysterious and dangerous' side of this well written read with the main area being focused around Boston, Fort Smith and Van Buren.
What will happen as Lily is drawn to Griffon as her 'girlhood dream was that of marrying a dashing, romantic Gypsy?' Will her dream come true? Well, this is one of those novels that you will just have to pick up and read for yourself to see just who was Griffon Golforth and just why had he been hired to find Cecille? The characters in this read were simply off the chain...well developed, portrayed and believable giving the reader one heck of a good story. The characters from Lilly, Griffon, Uncle Howard, Aunt Nan, Angela & Edward Meeker, Orrie, Cecille, Balthazar [Zar], Sheriff Mac, Thurman Unger, Ham, Anson, Jasper, Eva, Butch Jefferses to a few others really presented the reader with some engaging thoughts that will keep you turning the pages to see what was coming next. Yes, there were some good and bad ones characters to along with some prejudices too!
By the end will their be a HEA for Lily and Griffon? You will just have to pick up this good read to see.
