Season of Storms | Susanna Kearsley

A mystery trapped in time In 1921, infamous Italian poet Galeazzo D'Ascanio wrote his last and greatest play, inspired by his muse and mistress, actress Celia Sands. On the eve of opening night, Celia vanished, and the play was never performed. Now, two generations later, Alessandro D'Ascanio plans to stage his grandfather's masterpiece and has offered the lead to a promising young English actress, also named Celia Sands-at the whim of her actress mother, or so she has always thought. When Celia arrives at D'Ascanio's magnificent, isolated Italian villa, she is drawn to the mystery of her namesake's disappearance-and to the compelling, enigmatic Alessandro. But the closer Celia gets to learning the first Celia's fate, the more she is drawn into a web of murder, passion, and the obsession of genius. Though she knows she should let go of the past, in the dark, in her dreams, it comes back...

I love Susanna Kearsley books, but SEASON OF STORMS is not in my opinion one of her better writing. She took far too long to get the story off the ground and spent a lot of unnecessary time on setting the scene with little to no movement in plot. With some patience it ends up being a decent book.

I was surprised I hadn‘t read this Kearsley book when I saw it available as an ebook from my library. Read it while pumping - kept me occupied :)

A little different than Kearsley‘s other books in that the historical part of the story was less prominent - more of a backdrop. I really enjoyed the growth of the main character, the Italian setting, and the positive familial relationships, but the love interest was a bit weak.

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

#SeasonsofLove This novel, one of Kearsley‘s earlier books, features a little suspense and a little romance. Mixed reviews on this one, but I really enjoyed it.

vivastory Comparison to French Lieutenants Woman is intriguing! 11mo
EastWind76 I enjoyed this one... not my favorite of her books, but still fun! 11mo
Melissa_J @vivastory I haven‘t read that one, so I can‘t say if it‘s accurate or not, but it seems an odd comparison anyway. 11mo

Melissa_J @EastWind76 my favourites are Mariana, The Shadowy Horses and Bellewether. How about you? 11mo
EastWind76 @Melissa_J I haven't read Mariana or Bellewether yet... soon! I really loved the combo of Shadowy Horses/Winter Sea/Firebird, and I also adored The Rose Garden. I love her writing!! 11mo
Crazeedi I've enjoyed most of her books, but belleweather disappointed me for some reason 11mo
Melissa_J @Crazeedi I had trouble with The Firebird and A Desperate Fortune - I bailed on both of them! (edited) 11mo
Crazeedi @Melissa_J right! Some of her books were really good, others, meh... 11mo
Cinfhen I‘ve heard of this author but have never read any of her books. 11mo

A mysterious disappearance, a cursed play, an accidental seance, and a historic villa make for one delicious read! I loved that the plot twists were unexpected, and left me guessing. Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #mystery #gothic

My biggest crochet project of 2017, done mostly as #audiocrocheting. Just realized that although I shared some in progress shots several months ago, I never shared the finished product. I love how it turned out and love that this year I discovered #audiocrocheting - excited for projects I'll start and audiobooks I'll read in 2018.

RuthyBux Beautiful. I need to start crocheting again 😍 2y
llwheeler @LeahBergen Thanks! @RuthyBux thanks, ☺ it's fun! 2y
SilversReviews Pretty!! 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 So beautiful! I asked for a blocking board for Christmas for a granny square blanket I want to make. Crossing my fingers 🤞🏻 These are lovely colors! Beautiful 2y
llwheeler @ForeverNerdy Thanks! Ooh, if you get it you'll have to tell me what you think of it. I've just used towels on my floor, the blanket on top of them and then pins stuck into the carpet to block lol 2y
[DELETED] 3803335244 I definitely will tell you. I‘ve avoided making anything I have to block for awhile. I want to do 365 granny squares starting Jan 1. My knitting club is doing 1 a day then sewing them together at the end of the year! It‘s neat! The board is from Chetnanigans it‘s got great reviews & some of my friends have 1. Hopefully it‘s worth it! Plus I need granny square patterns. Know any good ones/book pattern recommendations? Blocking is a pain! Lol 😂 2y
llwheeler What a cool idea!! My crochet goal for 2018 is to use up yarn I already own instead of always buying new colours, and hopefully donate some of the results. I've only used pinterest to find patterns so far lol! I should try and branch out from there too haha 2y
shanaqui I need to get back to crocheting! I've been slowly working on a corner-to-corner crochet project, but I haven't touched it in far, far too long. 2y
llwheeler @shanaqui Ooh cool! I haven't tried corner-to-corner yet but I want to! 2y
shanaqui It can be quite complex, but I loved the results! Just got to get back to it. 🤣 2y
llwheeler @shanaqui yeah, that is always the hardest part eh 2y

This one's only a so-so for me. It's the 2nd Kearsley I've read after Mariana, and it is rather uneven in comparison. That's not really its fault, Mariana is the best book I've read so far this year. It might reward a rereading sometime when Mariana isn't so fresh in my mind.

Also my 2001 book for #192019challenge

Latest crochet project done: two dishclothes. Love the colours, makes me want to keep 'em even though they're meant to be gifts.

I'm a couple hours into my current audiobook. It's very good so far but I still love Mariana more.

Melissa_J I really liked this one, although Shadowy Horses and Mariana are my favourite Kearsley books. 2y
llwheeler @Melissa_J Mariana is the only one I've read so far but I loooooved it. I picked this one next just cause it was available from the library. I'll keep an eye out for Shadowy Horses ☺ 2y

I loved it! It was more of a contemporary mystery with some references to a tragic past. There was also a scene where I was getting some massive Nancy Drew vibes.

' you will tell him I didn't run off? She smiled as though reminding me of something I had promised. "I couldn't bear to have him thinking that, it's such an awful lie, and I do love him. Tell him I was murdered, won't you? Tell him I'm still here.'

I was feeling really overwhelmed and felt a slump coming on, I just had So.Much. Going on at the moment. So I put everything to the side and turned to the author I knew would have a story to pull me back to life and make everything right; Susanna Kearsley. I'm really enjoying Season of Storms so far. I can't wait to see where the story goes. Happy Weekend everyone❤️
