The Sparrow and the Hawk
Review by Nancy
Tales of the Sparrow Book One by Meg Lacey
Jillian (Jillie) is a laid-back spy for the NAS (Natural, Abnormal and Strange) who certainly has her work cut out for her on the newest case – finding the Carmaletta Choker before someone who knows what it can do does. She is a journalist by trade which is the perfect cover since she’s dong an article on jewelry. But her usual photographer doesn’t show for the meeting. He’s been replaces by Griff Ryland, one hunk of a man (?) and who is set on getting his hands on the Choker as well.
They make arrangements to attend a party given by what has to be one of the oddest characters I’ve read in a long time. Mannekins dressed to the hilt, guests dressed – interestingly (oh yes!) along with the sexual pull from Griff help keep Jillie on her toes.
This book was odd. I kinda didn’t like it at first but the descriptions of the choker owner – Franklin – and his “friends” absolutely enthralled me! If you like a bit of evil with your dinner and a house that has its’ own issues this is a perfect book for you. One issue and only one that I had, the last page reads” To be continued……”
Never fear. The Sparrow and The Vixens Three will be out next year!
