Growing up on Rainshadow, Charlotte Enright knew better than to ever go into the Preserve, until that one fateful night with Slade Attridge - a night neither of them would forget.
Now, 15 years later, both have returned to the island: Charlotte to take over her late aunt’s antiques shop and Slade to fill the police chief’s position. Able to read auras, Charlotte senses something amiss in Slade, but that doesn’t stop her from wanting him - again. That is, as long as his dust bunny “deputy” keeps his paws off her merchandise.
Hiding a psi injury, Slade is afraid of his powerful desire for Charlotte. But a series of increasingly violent crimes draws them closer together - and into the darkness at the heart of the Preserve....

If you've read any of these, then you know what you're getting into; this is more of the same and just as good as the rest. No surprises, ugly or otherwise. And yet, for a way to spend a few hours, it is as worth the time spent as the rest of them. For me, at my age, being worth the time is really quite an accolade.
Yes, I always enjoy the stories that take me into Harmony.
I always get a kick from the dust bunnies
They way she vocalizes the charterers
Enjoyed the adventure
I'm a avid listener, 1000+ in my collection. Some of my favorite series includes: Charlaine Harris's Sookie S., J.K's Harry P. and K. Armstrongs Otherworld. Single books T. Clancy's Hunt for Red October and S. Meyer's The Host.
A good listen however short.
For me it was knowing at once what the doll was from earlier Arcane Society stories.
Yes, I listen to 4+ books a week and although I'm not one to care who reads them I do care that they are read well. I find this one read well and with a pleasant voice. I also find this book to be comparable to others in the Harmony/Arcane series.
The kids run for cover.
I'm looking forward to more island adventures.
The very beginning was good then it dragged. It didn't get real interesting again until after the half way mark. I liked the first two books better.
I've listen to Jayne for years and this story was a little stronger. The different characters and location takes the story into a different direction.
Adding new people at the end was somthing new for Jayne.
Joyce has a strong voice and that makes is easy to listen.
The fact that the main character was so giving was a nice touch.
I'm interested in seeing where this story goes.
This was not really a Part 3 of the Looking Glass Trilogy, imo. More of a future side bar; it still was a good read.
I believe I would like to know what is going on inside the Reserve. Which will probably generate a whole other Trilogy.
credible, confident, comfortable.
I don't believe so.
Classic love story
Loved the dust bunny in the story
Joyce voice takes you to the island and time
Was able to walk from the worries and go to another time
The best way to say it is that the author seems to be struggling to keep writing a the pace she has been. I'd much rather have half as many books that are twice as good. This series started out good and I couldn't wait for the next installment. But this one left me bored and disappointed. The narrator was great. Its a shame she was wasted on such a boring story.
