China Jewel (River Sunday Romance Mysteries) - Thomas Hollyday

Another excellent novel from a rising star of the literally world, the research and knowledge of the author shines through and uses his favourite place and characters from Chesapeake.

The story revolves around a international tall ships race, following an ancient tea trade route, where the boats have to be replicas from the nineteenth century. When the Americans start researching the history of their ship it takes them on a treasure hunt and they find it takes them on a journey into the old ships route and brings them into conflict with the Chinese authorities.

The author style of writing draws and enthralls the reader and you feel as if you are there experiencing all the emotions of all the characters in the situations they face. The tension and suspense that the writer builds up to a crescendo is superb and the adventures and scenarios that are described are first class. The intense relationships which are portrayed in the storyline are excellent and you can relate the feelings to moments in your own life.  This vibe you get brings the characters even more to life.

This novel has everything a reader needs, romance, thrills, excitement, treasure seeking and the building of relationships between father and son.  Another first rate account from one of my favourite authors and look forward to reviewing more of his books.
