Book Review: Six of Hearts

Six of Hearts by L.H. Cosway: Step right up and meet Jay Fields: Illusionist. Mentalist. Trickster.

I think in triangles. You think in straight lines.

I show you a table and make you believe it’s a chair.

Smoke and mirrors, sleight of hand, misdirection. I trick and deceive.

But most of all, I put on a good show.

The world thinks I killed a man, but I didn’t. Bear with me. It’s all a part of the plan.

Revenge is what I want. I want it for me and I want it for her.
I want it for all six of us.

She doesn’t remember me, but she’s the reason for everything. She’ll be my prize at the end of all this – if I can hold onto my willpower, that is. Maybe I’ll slip up a little, have a taste, just a small one.

So go ahead and pick a card. Come inside and see the show. Look at my hands, look so closely that you can’t see what’s happening while you’re so focused on looking. I’ll be destroying your world from right here in the spotlight.

You’ll never see me coming until it’s too late.

I’ve only got one heart, and after I’ve pulled off my grand deception I’ll hand it right to her.

So, sit back, relax, and let my girl tell you our story. You’re in for one hell of a ride.

Lori's thoughts: I love playing cards, not playing with them, but looking at them, studying them, using them for divination, etc. I've seen this book around for awhile and I almost bought it a couple of times. Truthfully, what made me one-click it this time was when I saw the cover for her new book coming out in March. That one looks really good, and when I saw that it is a spin-off of this one, I decided it was time to read Six of Hearts. I was not disappointed. Several times I found myself laughing out loud. I also spent a great deal of the book swooning over Jay. The circus, the carnival, those things are exciting! With an air of mystery and wonder. How do they do that?! I liked the relationship between Jay and Matilda. It wasn't insta-love. The attraction was undeniable, but she didn't believe he could possibly be interested in her and so she was insecure and afraid to act on any feelings she felt toward him. He had a mission to complete, and before he could show her how he really felt, he had to complete the things he set out to do.

Very fun book with some mystery along the way. I look forward to reading more by this author!
