Linda Rae Blair has an innate talent for drawing you into her stories. She has a way of pulling you into the lives of each character and not letting you go. Intersections is a trilogy of stories where the lives of each main character intersect with the others at some point.
First we meet Katherine, a young girl who has the only life she knows ripped away from her and is plunged unwittingly into a corrupt world. She grows up without a true family, but as many people know, friends can be closer than family. We follow her from the time she is three until she is a young adult, and it is a rather exciting journey to follow.
Secondly we meet Claire; introduced briefly in the first story as a mentor for one of the characters, here we delve more deeply into her life. An extraordinarily strong and determined woman, she is an icon for all women who struggle to cope with the stresses and pain of life.
Lastly, we follow the story of the man Claire falls in love with.
My only qualm with the stories is the same as I have with any romance; it can makes a person feel lonely, and long for that amazing feeling of intense and forever fairytale love.
Mystery and suspense romance are generally not my first choice for reading material, but after enjoying Elusive, I decided to give Intersections a go. I have enjoyed this book as much as the first, and will continue to read Blair's contributions to the literary world.
