Though the title to Judy Bruce’s Wind Series book changes the book cover does not change. Letting the reader easily identify that this book is part of series. Excellent marketing tactic listing the other books that are part of the “Wind” series at the beginning of the book. Judy Bruce writing has a sense of humour you will find yourself laughing at the dry humour throughout the book.
The main character Megan’s role changes throughout the book series, in this series she taps more into her psychic abilities that she calls her gut feeling when she is dealing with conflict. Again she finds herself put in a role as a vigilante. Sometimes relying on the law is not enough, she herself avenges and conquers the evil people that has invaded her small town.
We emotionally identify and relate to Megan as she is haunted by her now tragic past. This book is well written, full of romance, suspense, mystery and adventure. She has had three stunning men in her life and she is torn between them. Megan is a role model, a highly successful respected lawyer, who like a private eye solves difficult cases. She is financially independent, has a love for animals, a true warrior who is gutsy and tough.
As a teen I was a great fan of Nancy Drew, this series reminds me of the adult version of the Nancy Drew series because it is fast paced and chapter to chapter keeps me in suspense. I find myself rereading the other books in the series. Like the Nancy Drew series, this is a series that you will keep as a collectable. As you get to know Megan more, you will find yourself sharing this book with your sister, daughter or girlfriend. You will find yourself impatiently waiting for the next series to learn more. The “Wind” series would definitely make a great TV series.
