Going Home by Nora Roberts
3 different stories about different people, all Silhoutee books.
.
Unfinished Business
Vaniessa, a concert pianist, and her mother Loretta are together again. Van is visiting at her mother's house.
She remembers all the pianos but they are all gone. Van is brought up to date with her best friend-back then, and her brother Brady Tucker who's also a doctor now.
She meets with not only her friends but learns of the things in her own mother's life and the reasoning behind why her mother gave her up to her father.
Tender scenes and shocking ones...
.
Island of Flowers
Laney Simmons travels to Hawaii to meet her father. She finds out that in her 15 year absence much has changed even that her father owns the plane company that is flying her in.
The pilot, Dylan O'Brien, half owner, sees her as an upscale princess and treats her as such. She studies him while he's conducting business and sees how surprised he is to see her.
She learns the truth about her education and how her father had paid for it all and then some...
Loved hearing of the scenery as she realizes what is really going on...
.
Mind Over Matter
He turns to a fortune teller in hopes to make his job easier by learning more about the career.
David Brady is producing a show on the paranormal. Because of her involvement with the VanCamps he wants her to help bring their case to the forefront.
Clarissa Bass is the fortune teller. She hopes to protect her mother and their life.
He fantasizes about her and learns more about her life and her family. Her mother was involved with finding others who had been kidnapped or murdered.
Lots of background information about the production of a documentary series. Hot steamy sex scenes.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device). ( )

First off for those of you who are already Patti Roberts fans of her Paradox series, you will know she is a spectacularly imaginative and beautiful author. Where some folks books read like solid dependable working boots, hers read like the gentle and delicate lace adorning your grandmothers couches. They are full of spirit and grace. Each of these types of styles are fine, and I enjoy both. What sets Patti’s into this category is her grace and energy. She truly is a joy to read, and to know. I was thrilled to see her releasing something that I adore, short stories, and to make it better, they were to be part of a whole series.

Sixty-One pages of a splendid short story Now if I read a page per minute that is a hair over an hour of reading, without commercial breaks. Took me a bit longer to finish, but keep up and you will see where I am going with this comparison. The series is slotted to be released one short story at a time, like a TV series, one episode at a time. With each short shining the spotlight into things going on. The first in this is Witchwood Estates – Going Home.

When the scene fades in, our leading girl Alexandri is getting ready to go home to her families estate. She is about to turn 18 and her inheritance needs to be claimed before the home and everything within the estate is lost. Alexandria lost her parents at an early age and was raised by a curious and loving couple, Olly and Martha Barnaby. They taught her about her family heritage, as in she comes from a family of witches and she herself is one too.

All it took was a bit of belief and a drop of her blood and her mothers spell book showed it’s secrets. Opening the book opened her to a whole new world. She didn’t have much time for the kids growing up, in fact they teased her so badly she created an invisibility spell so she could grow up and go to school in peace.

This is my first taste of the TV episodic-like flavor promised to us. So, consider this the pilot episode, and I believe this pilot in the world of whimsy for young-adults and young at heart, as it has been sold. The conventions of the story arc are not complicated. You have good witches, evil witches, wandering spirits.. what will happen next? Well we are going to have to wait till next week month to see!

4.5 stars ( )

Unfinished Business
Good little story about a world renowned musician, Vanessa Sexton, who returns home after her father's death to the mother she hasn't seen or heard from in 12 years. Not only does she have to deal with understanding why her mother let her go and didn't go after her, she has to deal with her high school love, Brady, who she thought unceremoniously dumped her the night of his senior prom. I'm glad there was time spent on Vanessa's relationship with her mother. I just didn't like her mother much. I really liked her relationship with Brady. The pacing was somewhat fast but for the most part the way they came together, got to know each other again, and reignited their love was well done and sweet. Vanessa's internal conflict was understandable and not overdrawn. Although I did kind of want to smack her around every time she denied her health issues. I ended up buying this twice, once in ebook form for twenty-five cents and in this compilation and I enjoyed the story enough that doesn't bother me (not that $1.25 truly would, haha.) 3.5 stars.

Island of Flowers
This one was a rage-fest from beginning to end. And super similar to the premise of Unfinished Business (down to similar actions by the deceased parent). Laine's mother took her from her father when she was seven. He never heard from her again even though he had been writing and sending presents. Cut to 15 years later and Laine goes to visit her father to get to know him and get some answers after her mother's death. From the second she gets there she was treated like a gold digging scam artist. Everyone told her 'it was about time she showed up'. And she got a ridiculous amount of hate from Dillion, her father's business partner. He acted as though she used her father for money while never contacting him, and money was the only reason she showed up there. I was livid throughout most of this book because who in their right fucking mind thinks it's the child's responsibility to maintain and salvage a relationship with her parent? No one tried to understand what she had been through. No one questioned why her father (a man with an airport, by the way) didn't jump on a plane to Paris to find her and find out why his seven-year-old child was angry with him (if that's what he thought). Why did she have to gain his trust and love? I started throttling the book on this one it was angering me so much.

The whole point of Laine's trip was to get to know her father but for some reason very little time was spent with him. Most of it was her getting kicked like a puppy by Dillion yet falling in love with him within a couple of days even though he treated her like absolute crap. It was ridiculous.

Even though he performed a couple of assaulting kisses early in the book I was still blindsided by Dillion being rapey in the end. I'm not sure why he made the assumptions he did but I especially don't understand why that prompted him to get incredibly close to raping her. And of course the resolution in the end was way too easy and an info dump that didn't feel like it resolved anything.

Actually, I amend my $1.25 statement above. If I had ended up buying this book twice, even for such cheap prices, I would have been angry. 1 star.

Mind over Matter
I really liked this story. Even with the paranormal elements. I felt all of the characters were well drawn and likable even when they were being frustratingly stubborn. The pacing of the story was damn near perfect. We got to see the evolution of David and A.J.'s relationship and I could easily buy their feelings for each other. It was so easy to root for them. The super eighties settings and clothing notwithstanding, I wouldn't mind reading this again. 3.5 stars. ( )

I have never read a novella before. This is my first. The book has a great storyline. The characters are great. If you love witches,ghosts and others , you will love this. I can't wait to read the next book Witchwood Estates-Ferntree Falls to see the continuation of this series . I give this book 5/5 stars . ( )

A nice, interesting collection of 3 short stories. They were heart warming with just enough conflict to keep you reading. Nothing too complicated, but the characters were well developed and likable. ( )
