From USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson, visit Blue Mountain yet again in this standalone tale that celebrates underdogs, family secrets, and forbidden love.
Charlotte Wilde’s life is a flop. She gives her heart to the wrong men, her first published book is a failure, and now she’s dead broke too. Desperate to pay the bills, she takes a job caring for an elderly woman who is recovering from a broken hip, hopeful the position will leave her with plenty of time to focus on her writing.
Yet as Charlotte gets to work, dutifully helping Mrs. Lanigan sort through a box of old letters, distractions abound. For one thing, both women immediately become consumed with a mystery unfolding in the correspondence. And to complicate matters further, Charlotte finds herself hopelessly attracted to her charge’s son, Ardan, a quiet and bookishly handsome man.
In the third volume of the Blue Mountain Series, USA Today bestselling author Tess Thompson reunites us with the Lanigan brothers, their cranky mother, and the feisty Heywood sisters. This standalone story of forbidden love and hundred-year old mystery will keep you turning pages way past your bedtime.
Blue Ink is about Ardan Lanigan, an old soul, writer in search for his love of lifetime and inspiration to finish writing his book.
Charlotte is a mystery writer, trying to stay afloat and come up with a chick lit, light hearted book per agent’s demand.
Together, staying under one roof fairly away from people to disturb their writing while also caring for Ardan’s mother, things happen.
What I love about the story –
1 – The mystery of Ardan’s grandparents, their love story which his mother and Charlotte uncover.
2 – The simple, straightforward Charlotte, she’s no non sense even though she’s scattered in her mind. She’s a good, likable character.
3 – Sense of humour, the banter between Charlotte and Riona, Ardan’s mother.
What puts me off a bit is the Insta Love part.
The series has some great mystery, suspense elements and characters who make me laugh and swoon at times. It’s something I’d pick up to read on a cold day.
