After Susan and Michelle return in despair from their time-travel journey back to 1999, Michelle resigns herself to a life of loneliness and Susan accepts the fact that she’s lost James forever.
James, a former member of the most famous band of all time, and Susan, the woman who’s loved him for over fifty years, were to be married in a double ceremony on Christmas Day, 1999 with Thomas, James’s son,
and Michelle, Susan’s daughter. It was not meant to be, however, when a
gold-digging ex-courtesan, determined to have James for her own, exposes Susan as already being married.
It’s now August 2016 when Thomas is preparing for a move from London to Los Angeles and discovers the mobile phone Susan left behind. The “mysterious object,” as he thought of it seventeen years earlier, is at the
bottom of a box in his closet that he’d packed up with Michelle’s things
shortly after she and her mother vanished.
When Brett, Thomas’s friend who works for Apple, examines
the phone, telling him it’s an iPhone6 and there’s no way he could have had it for seventeen years, both men are puzzled.
Will the mystery of the phone be solved and will it lead
Thomas back to Michelle? And, if Michelle and Thomas are reunited, is it
possible that Susan and James will once again find themselves in each other’s arms? After all, we know from Susan’s previous forays into the past that history could not be changed, but what about the future? Will there finally be a “Happily Ever After” for James and Susan?
Linda S. Rice has done it again! The Necklace V: Strawberries & Wine is book five in Rice’s The Necklace series, and as it is book five, I had even higher hopes as this is the semi-finale for the series! Usually, with a book series, the story loses momentum and can become lackluster very quickly. However, this is not the case with Rice’s series. Linda S. Rice is an imaginative writer who is continually thinking of new plots, scenarios, characters, setting and story devices to ensure that her series never once lacks momentum. That is why I was so pleased when I started to read this book because I knew it was going to be just as brilliant as the previous two books. The Necklace V is a beautiful book with a ton of energy because it kept me reading for hours and turning the pages with haste. So please book lovers, read this fantastic book and the other four and get lost in a beautiful world!
The Necklace V: Strawberries & Wine once again takes the reader on a lust filled, roller coaster ride of a journey that will keep readers entertained for hours on end. Susan and her daughter Michelle have returned from their journey back to 1999 but they do so with bad feeling. Due to the events that happened at the end of book four (events that I won’t spoil), Michelle cuts herself off from the world and Susan thinks that she has lost her beloved James forever. However all hope is not lost because in 2016, Thomas, Michelle’s beloved unraveling a mystery involving a phone that could potentially see him be reunited with Michelle and if Michelle and Thomas are reunited then so could Susan and James be. The Necklace V truly is a sensational book and it was everything I wanted it to be so I am so excited to start reading the finale!
Linda S. Rice is a phenomenal writer and this series of hers, and her literature, in general, has become one of my favorites. With each book, her stories get better and better to the point where I think she can’t improve anymore! But Rice is a true wordsmith and she develops and grows and reinvigorates her writing with each novel. A Necklace V, in particular, is one of my favorite books of her series, purely because of her incredible literature and unique storyline. The whole premise of lost love and desperation to be reunited was utterly perfect to me and would actually make a great movie! Linda S. Rice is incredible because her writing is wonderfully descriptive, so much so that each event that took place in this book played out as a movie in my mind. Her glorious descriptions, in particular, are breath-taking, I may have referenced this before in another review of mine for hers but it truly is, and it makes me fall in love with romance all over again!
The Necklace V is so expertly written that it will have the power to move and inspire you. Books with a feel good, lovely nature are my favorite kinds of reads because they leave me feeling light and fluffy. That is why this incredible book is perfect for any reader who is wishing to escape into an adorable, exceptional story; the author’s mesmerizing descriptions, the well thought out plot and memorable characters make The Necklace V a stellar piece of fiction. So, of course, I have no choice but to give The Necklace V Five Stars!
