What a magnificent story in A Matter of Latitude by Isobel Blackthorn. I have to admit that Blackthorn is one of my favorite authors, and I plan on reading everything she has written. I've read The Drago Tree, and some of her other works, and now, here is the first book in the Canary Islands Mysteries. It lives up to its name, as Blackthorn brings us to Lanzarote, and gives the reader the sense of the island, and all its beauty and wonder. If you aren't familiar with Lanzarote, it's Lanzarote, in the Canary Islands in Spain. Lanzarote eastern most of the Canary Islands, in the North Atlantic Ocean. It also has craters where lava flows. So, I learned a bit about the Canary Islands, and I even looked up on the internet for pictures, and it was just how the author described it. What a wonderful story "shower." The story revolves around a wounded Celestino, who is hiding out, and his wife, Paula who is trying to find him. It turns into a mysterious story with danger, chaos, and the fight for survival and answers. Celestino is not the only one in danger. It’s one of those embraceable stories. It’s definitely un-put-downable! It is always an honor to read this author's books. The story brings the reader on a superb journey. This is a magnificent story that kept this reader turning the pages. A definite attention-grabber, so much I couldn't put it down. Both thrilling and intriguing, all the way to the end. The characterizations are engrossing and dynamic. I just love, love, love this story. A Matter of Latitude is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
