Riley's latest "Seven Sisters" novel (after The Pearl Sister) introduces Tiggy D'Aplièse, the fifth sister of seven who have recently lost their adoptive father, Pa Salt. While she mourns him, Tiggy lives a rather peaceful life in a deer sanctuary in the Scottish Highlands. This idyllic setting is disrupted, however, when the sanctuary is forced to close, and Tiggy is offered a job at the estate of the mysterious Charlie Kinnaird. Tiggy has the gift of foresight, but she doesn't readily want to believe in the accuracy of her visions. Despite her sensible personality, she is increasingly drawn to Charlie, even though there are many things about him she doesn't know and may not be prepared to find out. Tiggy will discover her fate intersecting with that of Chilly, a Spanish Gypsy who escaped his homeland 70 years before, and a flamenco dancer born decades earlier.
VERDICT In each of her series novels, Riley draws magnetic and strong women, polar opposites in personality but all of them fearless and determined. This entry will delight followers of Riley's series but also appeal to new readers since each book can be read as a stand-alone. [See Prepub Alert, 8/27/18.]
