A Tale of Three Cities by Alexander McCabe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When you are living the dream in a mansion house in Scotland with your girlfriend, it must feel like you have it made. Well, Z and his girlfriend Lady Penelope Munro (Penny) were living the dream, but dreams sometimes turn into nightmares especially as Penny, has a dark past. They live alone in their castle with their handyman Andy who looks after the maintenance etc.
Penny is rich and is a customer of the local bank where Melisa Chisholm works, Melissa is in charge of Penny's affairs. Melissa believes in happy ever afters, and when she starts to read a story at the dentists about a man in the USA, by the name of Michael Bradley who is heartbroken after the disappearance of his wife who is believed dead, she suddenly realises that his missing wife is not dead as he believes but that she is very much alive. Melissa wants to help him find his wife, but the $1million reward is a bonus that she cannot fail to look forward too. A simple plan that cannot fail? or can it?
The story is told in both USA and in Scotland, with a trip to the Cayman Islands thrown in for good measure. There is plenty going on for sure. There is love & romance, violence and threats, robbery, and then the Mafia just to keep it interesting.
I loved this story, it truly was a terrific read, I loved how the Author drew you into the story, the intrigue, how you were willing things to go a certain way, and how you got a surprise at other things that happened along the way.
Be prepared to laugh at parts and have your heart in your mouth at other parts, definitely one to keep the emotions bouncing around as if you are on a rollercoaster.
