Normally, when I do a Romance Rewind, I like to do it on a series I have already read. However, this time, I decided to do it on a series I want to read, my main two reasons being that I need your opinions on the following two things:
1) Has anyone here read this? What do YOU think of it?
2) I am a Nora Roberts virgin! Is this trilogy a good place to start?
I liked the sound of the Signs of Seven Trilogy, it seems like it has it all, mystery, romance, the supernatural maybe even a bit of small town drama?
Every seven years, there comes a week in July when the locals do unspeakable things–and then don’t seem to remember them. The collective madness has made itself known beyond the town borders and has given Hawkins Hollow the reputation of a village possessed. This modern-day legend draws reporter and author Quinn Black to Hawkins Hollow with the hope of making the eerie happening the subject of her new book. It is only February, but Caleb Hawkins, descendent of the town founders, has already seen and felt the stirrings of evil. Though he can never forget the beginning of the terror in the woods twenty-one years ago, the signs have never been this strong before. Cal will need the help of his best friends, Fox and Gage, but surprisingly he must rely on Quinn as well. She too, can see the evil that the locals cannot, somehow connecting her to the town–and to Cal. As winter turns to spring, Cal and Quinn will shed their inhibitions, surrendering to a growing desire. They will form the cornerstone of a group of men and women bound by fate, passion, and the fight against what is to come from out of the darkness..
In the small village of Hawkins Hollow, three best friends who share the same birthday sneak off into the woods for a sleepover the evening before turning 10. But a night of pre-pubescent celebration turns into a night of horror as their blood brother oath unleashes a three-hundred year curse.
Twenty-one years later, Fox O’Dell and his friends have seen their town plagued by a week of unexplainable evil events two more times – every seven years. With the clock winding down on the third set of seven years, someone else has taken an interest in the town’s folklore.
A boutique manager from New York, Layla Darnell was drawn to Hawkins Hollow for reasons she can’t explain – but the recent attacks on her life make it clear that it is personal. And though Fox tries to keep his professional distance, his interests in Layla have become personal too.
