    1 thought on “Columbella”

    1. A nice surprise -- this was my first Whitney book, but I'll definitely be investing in more. As you might guess from the lovely vintage cover, Columbella is a gentle melodrama/gothic romance hybrid that takes place on St Thomas. There are rich people with rich people problems. Cougars. Screwy mother/daughter dynamics. Jewel thieves. Seashells. Hurricanes. Scandalous bikinis. And someone gets crushed to death by a mango tree. This is contemporary rom suspense at its finest, y'all. It's squeaky cl [...]

    2. Is was so exciting! It kept me guessing until the very last 2 chapters. I thought I had it figured out, but of course, I didn't. The twist at the end was a total surprise. Great mystery!

    3. Esta é a história de Jéssica Abbott, uma ex-professora de 28 anos que passara cuidando de sua mãe doente e possessiva por vários anos. Após a morte da mãe, sem saber que rumo tomar, Jéssica vai para a ilha de St. Thomas, nas Ilhas Virgens, ficar com sua tia. Inicialmente a moça quer apenas descansar, mas logo é procurada pela matriarca da família mais importante da ilha, que deseja sua ajuda para supervisionar uma adolescente de 14 anos (neta desta senhora).A menina que deve ficar aos [...]

    4. Jessica flees her past and escapes to beautiful St. Thomas Island in the Carribean to stay with an aunt for awhile. While there, she is asked to become a private teacher to a 14 year old girl--Leila. Leila's mother is a wild, cat-like, evil woman--Catherine (Cathy to her daughter and Columbella to herself). This woman puts her daughter down at every turn and has no respect for herself, her husband, or others. Jessica intended to stay just a few days, but became caught up in this crazy story that [...]

    5. Boring. I know it's old, but I don't understand how this could have ever been marketed as a romantic suspense. Nothing happens. As is typical of these older romances, there is absolutely nothing going on between the heroine and the hero until suddenly they are madly in love and say they always have been. The twist in this one is that the hero is already married to another woman. Oh, and again as is typical of these older romances, the heroine had all these problems (in this case they were mental [...]

    6. Probably my favorite of all Whitney's massive volume of work, this is the story of Jessica Abbott, a former school teacher, who is talked into supervising a troubled teen by the family matriarch. The story is set on the island of St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. It is a wonderful example of the romantic mystery novel of which Phyllis Whitney is the undisputed master. Some adult concepts: murder and adultery, but nothing graphic.

    7. I always enjoy books by Phyllis A. Whitney, and this was no exception. This was actually not the first time I've read this book. My only critique, and this is the same with many books, is the relationship between two of the characters just seems to pop up out of nowhere! One minute they are arguing, and the next you find them in each other's arms professing their undying love to each other. But other than that, it was a good read!

    8. To be honest,this was not my favorite. I loved the setting and the characters were interesting. I just felt that the romance between Jessica and King formed too quick. We knew her feelings but usually Ms.Whitney draws it out with glances and such. With this he just suddenly had feelings for her. Although the ending did have a twist in it,in Ms. Whitney's true fashion

    9. Still a good story but not one of my favorites. I absolutely love gothic romances with all of the mystery and the strong female characters. Phyllis A. Whitney is an amazing author incorporating an unforgettable story with amazing characters.

    10. I didn't enjoy this one as much as other Whitney novel I read. Very ominous overtone, depressing more than mysterious. I definitely DID NOT feel the chemistry between the two characters, like there was something missing or part of the story was left out.Won't stop me from reading other novels by author, she really is a 'master of her craft', everybody gets to have a bad day now and then!
