“Absolutely, Positively” by Jayne Ann Krentz

Absolutely, Positively ” by Jayne Ann Krentz
Pocket Books, 1996
ISBN: 0-671-77873-0

Absolutely, Positively ” by Jayne Ann Krentz is a delicious romance mystery.

The lead characters Molly Abberwick and Harry Trevelyan come together to create a wonderful love story. Molly comes from a family of inventors. She is familiar with how the creative process works and has an insight into people that is necessary to this story.

The famous Second Sight comes to Harry through his father’s line and he does everything he can to deny it. Molly, though, is able to recognize what is going on and in this story the two of them come together on the paranormal plane in a very satisfying way.

Also, somebody is threatening Molly and Harry, though already her consultant in vetting applicants for grants from her father’s foundation takes it upon himself to protect and to solve the mystery.

You’re going to enjoy this. There are words here that ring back and forth to draw the Victorian and the Futuristic work Jayne Ann Krentz does into this contemporary story. Names of the characters, the quirkiness they display, and the talent most of all. Hey, it runs in the family. What can I say.
A post note to this review. Flash forward. It is September, 2009 and I have reached for "Absolutely Positively" from my bookshelf. I was in need of a good book to read. It didn't matter that I had already read it before. It was as much a delight this time as the last time I read it. Truly one of those books to keep on your shelf.
