A Secret in Salem
This book includes characters from the soap opera "Days of our Lives", of which I am a longtime fan. I think that it would be a decent read on its own, but a much better read if the reader knew the characters from the show. Marlena and John have left Salem and are dealing with his paralysis. Shawn and Belle are sailing around the world. Jack, Jennifer and Abby are keeping the newspaper business in the family. All of that made me want to go back to watching the soap opera on a daily basis. There are new characters that are important in the book and these new characters are interesting enough to hook the Days fans--Charley, Jackson and Chance could fit in seamlessly with the Salemites. Decent mystery and romance, this was a fun read. This book was sent to me by Sourcebooks for review.
