The Wicked Lady - Brenda Jernigan I really have to stop buying these books by little known authors. However, I keep hoping to find a real winner. I've done it before.

This story certainly had potential but it was just an ok read for me. The story went along well enough but there were several abrupt passages. Also, some of the story lines needed some adjustment. The heroes wife gets put in jail for murder but I didn't feel like there was any sense of urgency on the part of the hero. I think there was but the writing didn't make me feel that way.

The wife was in jail because she is TSTL. Instead of telling her husband where he might find her missing adoptive brother she decides to go on her own. Really? Your husband has been searching for your brother for a week and you had an idea on how to find him but don't bother letting your husband know? Annoying.

Also, there was a long lost family reunion but it was not quite what I was expecting. It didn't have much emotion behind it and it just fell flat for me. In Kathleen Woodiwiss's Ashes in the Wind, there is a long lost reunion scene that is on the final page and I felt more emotion from that.

I'm not sure if this is Ms. Jernigan's first book but the writing just needed some brushing up to make it more enjoyable. The story should have torn at the heartstrings and it just didn't.

It isn't as bad as some others I've read but it could have been much better.
