Slippers for THE COMING!
just sucks you right in from the very first page to the last. It
keeps you going 'til you're bursting from anticipation to get to
the end. Larissa is an intelligent woman who can take care of
herself and not one of those wimpy, needy girls. Jack is strong,
handsome, filled with demons of his own, and a kind of alpha in
his own way. Together they are two halves that make up a whole.
Their hope, blooming love, and happiness shines through the book.
Ms. Knight is the best!
THE COMING is a
fun read. Ms. Knight is a delightful storyteller with a flair for
crossing different genres and this book is no exception; it's time
travel with a twist. There are a few minor threads that run
through the story but everything is nicely tied up in the end. The
secondary characters are well drawn and engaging. Larissa and Jack
are immediately attracted to each other, and the pages turn
quickly as the tale rolls through the excitement and mystery of
different time periods. Jus one question burns brightest; can
Larissa, Jack, and his crew get off the island together and back
into the same time zone? And what will they do about the pirates
and the young girl they kidnapped in 1873? THE COMING is a
delightful romp and a thrilling love story all wrapped up into
one. It's the perfect choice for your spring reading selection.
Ribbon Rating of 5! Susanne Marie Knight does a wonderful job
of plopping a World War II vet in the middle of the twenty-first
century. The sense of awe and wonder at the technologies, and the
old-fashioned moral code came together in a strong and moving
story. From the first paragraph I was hooked and couldn't wait to
find out how [Jack and Larissa] overcame the barrage of obstacles
laid in their paths.
4 Roses! A
unique twist on the time travel idea, THE COMING treats us to the
possibility that the strange happenings in the Triangle are real.
Both Jack and Larissa are open minded enough to believe in the
reality of the moment. We are treated to wonderful characters and
a story that moves swiftly even on island time. Grab this book and
see if a man from the past and a woman searching for a hero can
find their place in the world.
To begin with, this is
the best book I've read in a long time. I won't give the ending
away. Even if you ply me with peanut butter cookies, I won't tell,
so don't ask! I loved the beginning. It was different and
interesting. Bermuda Triangle? Hurray! I'm into sci-fi, so this
book was particularly interesting to me. During WWII, while flying
on a mission, Jack Harrington goes down into the triangle in his
bomber. I like the way this book is written, especially her, `When
death was as close a companion as his sweaty regulation
undershirt?' Then it introduces Larissa Parish and her granddad, a
man who was dying. Even with death so close, he was still able to
joke. He promised to walk her down the aisle when she married. Was
he able to hold on? Unfortunately not. Gramps wanted his ashes
thrown in the ocean right where the Sweet Revenge disappeared. He
passes away and she takes his ashes. She falls overboard into the
Triangle... and promptly vanishes. Jack... who is still
thirty-three, safe on an island, catches sight of Larissa in her
life jacket and pulls her out of the ocean. Despite the
indications, she refuses to believe he's from WWII. Yesterday man
meets tomorrow woman. Bound to be some disagreements and there
are. Are they rescued? Do they stay on that island for the rest of
their lives? Do they fall in love and get married? There! That's
all I'm going to say... Well, maybe I'll add, read it! You won't

The latest by Ms.
Knight is one romance that proves that with love and trust,
anything can happen. She has created a woman who is not worried
about finding true love. She's independent and knows that if she
were to be married then it would happen one day. What she didn't
count on was that her life would change one man's life extremely.
Now as leading men go, Jack is different from every man. Knight
has somehow created a man who is not only old-fashioned but also
still stuck in the 1940's persona. He believes that a woman should
be at home waiting for their men. However, with larissa he thinks
differently and can't figure out why she has such a strong hold on
him. This reviewer has never read such a story that benefits every
reader's reading style. Ms. Knight has created such loving
characters in Larissa and Jack. The other characters in this story
were also great, wondering if they will have their own story.
Great read and creative background to the newfound love they feel
for each other.

Marie Knight has written a story with a wonderful premise. The
idea that Larry would go dump her Grandfather's ashes and wind up
in the same place as her Gramps' best friend is terrific. It
hooked me from the first page. Will they be able to get back to
the present or will they be stuck on the island paradise forever?
It intrigued me and I really enjoyed the story.
COMING is a time-travel romance with an interesting twist that I
would love to see used in future books. The 1940s was a new time
period for me and I really enjoyed meeting the characters, so much
so that I will be looking out for similar books in the future. THE
COMING was a highly entertaining read offering a tantalizing
glimpse into a very near past.
Many years ago
the Bermuda Triangle was a popular subject for books and
television shows that always intrigued me. In THE COMING it is
once again the basis of a fantastic story of the disappearance of
a WWII bomber and its crew. The book is peopled with interesting
characters and a storyline that keeps you glued to the pages, and
those who enjoy tales that include inexplicable happenings with
satisfactorily happy endings will certainly enjoy THE COMING as I
In THE COMING,
Susanne Marie Knight takes us back in time to 1945. The dialogue
is done exceptionally well with the change of times and the
characters are strong. The plot pulls us into the story
immediately and the reader will enjoy the experience.
