|Christina Skye: The Perfect Gift|
(Paperback), ISBN 0-380-80023-3
Maggie's father, also a goldsmith and famous in the bargain, vanishes, presumably taking with him a fortune in very famous jewels. Meanwhile, Maggie submits one of her works in a competition that would result in her coming to Draycott Abbey and possibly becoming famous in her own right. Jared must check her out, discover if she is involved with her father's crime, and if she's clean, invite her to Draycott Manor.
Jared's psychic gifts assure him Maggie knew nothing about whatever her father may or may not have done, but danger dogs her footsteps as well as reporters. She needs Jared to protect her. But does Maggie need the growing attraction Jared feels towards her, and does she need to respond in kind?
Reading the book as a newcomer to the Draycott series did not prove to be a detriment to enjoying The Perfect Gift. This book will please anyone who enjoys a touch of the paranormal, fast-paced action and two people meant for each other. The Perfect Gift will warm your heart, make you breathe a little faster, and make you want to journey to the Abbey to meet Adrian, Gideon, and the rest of the deftly drawn, likable (except the bad guys) cast.
