New Release Review: Ember's Secret (Solstice Quartet #1) by Catherine Peace

What the book has to say:

Ember only wants two things out of life: to be reunited with her sisters, and to see people come back to her café. Catering to people she never sees again, she experiences a loneliness that can’t be filled. As one of the last Whakamanu—a descendant of the Maori bird-god Tane—she has to hold on to the secrets of her tribe. Family first.

Gourmet TV personality Austin Garten, host of the popular show Back Road Eats, needs more in his life than Breadbasket America grilling. He’s tired of the safe routes, the easy and dependable foods that the Network loves to display. When his RV breaks down in Wyoming, and he learns about Kai, a Maori restaurant outside of Casper, his interest is piqued. Once he meets the proprietor, he realizes he’s wants more than just her food. He wants her.

Ember isn’t too sure. The Solstice, the Maori New Year, is fast approaching, and with the heat in her kitchen ratcheting up, she knows she can’t keep her secret for much longer. But will Austin be able to accept her? Or will her secret drive them apart?

What I have to say:

As one of the last Whakamanu, Ember experiences a loneliness that can’t be filled with her struggling café until Gourmet TV personality Austin Garten walks in and has her wondering if he could handle her secrets in this spellbinding paranormal romance.

To Austin his show has become a constant play back of the same old same old so when fate has him stepping into Ember’s café, he takes matters into his own hands and decides to put her restaurant on the map and the reader can’t help but get caught up in the story as Ember who steals readers hearts from the very beginning finally has hope of reaching for the stars. The characters are strong, compelling and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot captivates readers with suspense and romance

The author spins a beautiful myth-like story by blending cultural folklore, fantasy, magic and romance together in a fascinating way that draws readers in and encourages them to come back for more. The tension between Ember and her father adds depth to the story as they both struggle with strong emotional issues and the need to hide their very existence while the chemistry between Austin and Ember heats things with lots of hot and steamy passion and the vivid imagery painted by the author with well written scenes and details capture the imagination and bring the story to life.

I always love reading about new and interesting paranormal stories and characters and this one adds a whole lot of charming and mysterious with some unique and interesting elements that kept me fascinated from the very beginning and I can’t wait to read the next one.

Introducing Catherine Peace:

I've been telling stories for as long as I could remember. I often blames two things for her forays into speculative fiction—Syfy (when it was SciFi) channel Sundays with my dad and The Island of Dr. Moreau by HG Wells. I love science, the possible and impossible, the creepy and the paranormal.

When not writing, I'm reading for Indie Books R Us and contributing to the Pen Punks, a blog all about the punk genres of science fiction.
