Shattered Silk: 04/27/14
Shattered Silk by Barbara Michaels is the second of the Georgetown trilogy. Karen, another of Ruth's nieces, is leaving a bad relationship and needs somewhere to stay. Her husband has left her for a younger woman. Now she wants to start her own business, a clothing shop specializing in vintage undergarments.
But tied up in all those unmentionables are some dark town secrets. Someone or something doesn't want those secrets being aired with the dirty laundry. (Sorry... this cheesy book just needs a cheesy review).
In all of this mess there's the same old heavy handed discussion, lecturing on gender roles, while Karen and Ruth and to a lesser degree the men, are in danger. Really, having already been through this scenario once with a supernatural danger, perhaps Ruth and company should stop bickering and get the hell out of that house. The house needs to be burned to the ground and the ground salted.
But no. That's not the point. Of course not. Look at me rolling my eyes.
Ok. Deep breath. The point is that men are pigs and women can't escape and humanity is doomed to repeat the same mistakes.
