This is the first novel I have read by Jackie D. I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy it from reading the synopsis but i was pleasantly surprised.
In the blink of an eye, Lena Michaels’s dreams of college became a distant memory. A robbery gone wrong in her family’s locally owned restaurant took the life of her parents. The only witness to the gruesome tragedy was Laura, Lena’s nine-year-old sister. Seven years later, the murders remain unsolved and Laura is now a rebellious teenager, dead set on pushing her sister’s limits. Amy Kline is a public relations hotshot for the San Francisco Miners football team. Her only focus is keeping her publicity prone clients out of hot water. When Laura’s rebellious streak puts her in the sights of the Miners’ star wide receiver, Lena and Amy will have to face off to protect what is important to them. What neither is prepared for is that the price could be their hearts.
I enjoyed ‘Lands End. The novel was well written and the background story of Lena’s Parents Murder was communicated well to the reader.
I actually thought about 75% of the way in that this would have made a good series. First one about the Murder at Lands End, then maybe one about a scandal with one of Amy Clients (maybe a closeted football player) … you get the drift. But all centered around Lena and Amy relationship. But that’s my imagination running away with it’s self… As it seems to when it comes to novels i am passionate about.
The love that grew between Lena and Amy warmed my heart. And I could completely relate to both of them at different times through out the novel.
All in all it was a good read and I will be looking out for more of Jackie D’s books in future.
