    This is Joe Kelley’s debut novel and it’s impressive It’s a story of how the ghosts of our past shape our character and the trajectory of our lives It’s also a story of love and redemption with a powerful dose of suspense and intrigue a lovely combinationA murder full of moral ambiguities sets the stage for the entry of Ursala McGuire a tough gorgeous Irish Catholic attorney turned private investigator who is part liberal political operator part feminist and part pit bull She is joined by Rob Rosario her long term best friend whose background as an investigative reporter makes him a valuable occasional resource despite the fact that he is now devoting his life to teaching full timeImprobably Ursula has been retained by two young women whose lives were saved by the murderer reportedly a stunningly beautiful woman who coolly dispatched the abusive husband of one of the young women in an alley confrontation outside a bar The police have not found the murderer but the girls want to know who it is that saved their livesAs the trail gets hotter Rosario against his better judgment is inadvertently drawn into a relationship with a beautiful dangerous and enigmatic woman Together they each battle the ghosts of their past and struggle to contain deep personal longings ultimately leading to a stunning denouementFlowing prose marvelous dialogue moral conflict and high suspense make Rebecca Scott a thoroughly enjoyable read At the end I was sorry to put this powerful novel down

    Rebecca Scott was instantly engaging Not being a “romance novel” reader I was skeptical I was pleased that action started immediately The book read like a spy or mystery novel than a romance Albeit that there was ample romantic intrigueThe book is familiar and an easy readIn the beginning the meeting between Rebecca and Rosario seemed to “jump the shark” but as the characters were developed it became clear that in fact their meetingdialoguebehavior was uite consistent while being inconsistentI enjoyed the twists and turns to the moral and ethical situation exposed throughout the book sometimes introduced with humor always thought provoking The unconventional solution to these uestions makes for a great readAnyone who enjoys reading about real places and flawed “real” people presented with a series of difficult choices will enjoy Rebecca Scott The combination of religion politics and the setting in Cambridge Massachusetts provides a marvelous back drop for a well crafted plot The only problem with the book is that there is not a seuel coming out shortly

    Rebecca Scott is a terrific read and an important story The opening chapter confronts you with a startling scene that stays with you through the entire book Billed as a romance it is that and Using the 1994 Senatorial campaign between Teddy Kennedy and Mitt Romney as context Mr Kelley creates memorable scenes that move the narrative along including wonderful culinary experiences and images of Boston and Cambridge that would make any chronicler of that City's history proudTwo themes run through the book What is an appropriate response for a man woman or adolescent when that person has been bullied? and what role does religion play in fostering moral behavior?The author generally takes these themes on separate tracks but one can't help but intuit a link between the two At the heart of the story are Rebecca Scott and Rob Rosario who discover a physical need for each other but importantly eventually find a common ground based on their own retaliatory responses of revenge from early adulthood experiences

    Rebecca Scott exceeded my expectations Mr Kelley has a way of capturing the reader and not letting go He weaves a story that shows the characters in vivid detail There is Ursala the beautiful and shrewd attorney; her kind and loving husband Mark; Ursala's best friend Rob; Rebecca Scott the drop dead gorgeous woman who is thought to havewell let's not spoil it for the reader Suffice it to say the intrigue and romance will not be disappointing Those gentle readers living in or around Boston and Cambridge are in for a real treat when they read about the integral details of familiar streets and buildings as well as the political climate of the 1990's used to tell the story Men and women alike will enjoy this book I could read it than once Now I ask when does the seuel come out?Suzanne Dentry Meny
