Overview

From NYT bestselling author Patricia Rice—the first in a new contemporary romantic mystery series featuring her Malcolm/Ives family!!
A lawman haunted by his past . . . a scientist haunted by her future.

Samantha Moon arrives in Hillvale-- population 325 lives and countless ghosts--in a fog as thick as the one circling the aging mountain town. Bereft of friends and family, money and memory, all she has to her name is a stray cat . . . but that's apparently enough for the people of Hillvale to take her in.

L.A. investigator Chen Ling Walker's problem is too many memories. He's come to bury his tragic past in this remote California town, where his father vanished years before. Ever watchful, Walker sees how Sam's arrival disturbs the deceptive peace of Hillvale. Old bones lead to new death, stirring ancient fears and feuds.

Sam will need Walker's help to uncover the truth of who she is and face the burden that brings. But how can he accept a reality that stretches beyond the borders of what he knows -- one that contains spirits, psychics, and imaginary voices--the weirdness that ruined his life before?

And if they survive what lies ahead, will they find any way to make a future together?

The paranormal part of story is in both the town itself and some of the people who live there. Different characters exhibit different paranormal abilities. Witches and mediums, tarot card readers, psycho metrics, and aura readers are just a few of the mix. The romance is sweet and the sex happens behind closed doors and not on the pages of the book. There is a lot of talk of evil that resides in the location but the main characters do not talk about leaving. There is no cell reception and very limited WiFi, which I found to be a very contrived plot device. The mystery was suspenseful and plotted adequately. I may read one or two more of this series but not all of them.

Sapphire Nights is book #1 in Patirica Rice’s new series "Crystal Magic" series. Promises to be an enjoyable and inventive series. It has suspense, romance, secrets, a bit of magic, charming characters, reconciliation and a riveting good vs evil plot. Well written with mysterious storytelling and quirky characters. The storyline is unpredictable, intriguing and truly fascinating. The characters will definitely keep your attention and the plot kept me turning pages. Storytelling is definitely Patricia Rice's forte. Definitely a masterful and brilliant author. A must read for fans of romance, mystery, magic, small towns, secrets and riveting storytelling. I look forward to book 2. I received a complimentary copy, however, all opinions are my own.

Intriguing Story. The reader learns about Hillvale along with Samantha Moon who is suffering from amnesia. It is a town split in two, on one side there are the social misfits, hippies and psychics; on the other rich men determined to become richer by land grabbing and one mustn’t forget the ghosts or spirits! Somehow Sam is the key to either unite or tear apart the community, she just has to find out how and why. I look forward with interest to the next book. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Sapphire Nights by Patricia Rice Crystal Magic #1 Can you imagine driving to a gps destination not knowing who you are or anything about yourself? Well, that is how this book starts out with Samantha Moon heading to Hillvale hoping to find out who she is, why she is on the road and just what is happening. When she arrives she is taken in by the “Lucys” and told to avoid the “Nulls” – but – that is easier said than done. Chen Ling Walker is a man on a mission – he wants to find out what happened to his father nearly two decades ago. He is a policeman but also has a business to run. When human bones are found it sets more in motion than many expected. With a history of hippies, murder, land fraud, a commune, artists and magic this story is action-packed, provides a mystery to be solved and throws in a delightful romance that was a real treat. I had trouble putting this book down and am eager to read what happens next in this series. I have enjoyed every book I have read by this author and this is no exception. Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

Very odd and interesting characters and a good mystery. Walker has had enough crazy in his life and then Sam blows into town and it starts again. Sam has no idea who she is, she just knows she is supposed to be in Hillvale. Walker starts to find answers for Sam, but he has an old mystery that also needs answers. What happened to his father while he was in Hillvale. As they try to find answers, Walker isn't sure about Sam's sanity, but he is attracted to her and can't seem to stay away from her. Will they find their answers before it is too late?
