A Page Turner!

Born in Oakland, CA, Kathy Parsons has been an independent piano teacher since early 1981. Kathy is also a Top 1000 Reviewer. Shelived in the San Francisco Bay Area until mid-2007 when she relocated to Florence, OR (on the central Oregon Coast). She continues to teach locally and via the internet in addition to reviewing many recordings and interviewing artists for her website, MainlyPiano.com, and editing new sheet music. I am honored to find her review of my suspense thriller, Virtually Lace:

Format: Kindle Edition

Virtually Lace is the first book released in a new series by best-selling and award-winning author Uvi Poznansky. When she asked if I would read and review this book, I saw that it is Book 2 in a series called “Ash Suspense Thrillers with a Dash of Romance.” I was surprised that I had missed Book 1 and asked if I should read that first. I was told that Book 1 will actually follow Book 2 in about a month (February 2019). Even more interesting is that Ms. Poznansky said that sometimes she becomes so intrigued by one of her characters that she decides to explore that character’s past even if it wasn’t in the original plan. No wonder her characters are so vivid and believable!

The previous series of books by Uvi Poznansky that I have read were Still Life with Memories (6 volumes) and The David Chronicles (9 volumes, including collections of artwork based on the historical context of the books). Both series were steeped in history and well-researched. Virtually Lace is much more of a murder-mystery, but virtual reality plays a big part in the plot and gives references to where that technology is right now and possibly where it is headed. To be honest, that’s almost as scary as the murder and suspense of the plot, but it would be an amazing tool to be able reconstruct events and see what really happened by applying VR. More importantly, the main characters are very well developed and vivid, making this book a real page-turner. I can’t wait to read Book 1!
