Product description

Product Description

On the rooftops of London, you can be anyone.

A year ago, Lanie Briers escaped a serial killer. She grew up in a theatre family and her act was mediumship, but not anymore. Life, now, is a hidden retreat above a quirky Edwardian museum, where she waits and watches.

Nick Tawes is an unexpected intrusion. He’s a landscape architect filming a television series on roof gardens, and he intends to build one in Lanie’s aerial territory. He has his own demons, old aristocratic family troubles, that lure Lanie out of her refuge and into living again.

But as summer progresses and the sky garden grows, Lanie’s enemy is closing in—because some secrets must go to the grave.

*** "Sky Garden" is for Edwardian fans who wonder how the Gilded Age would be lived in the twenty first century.

The minute I read the book description of Sky Garden by Jenny Schwartz I knew it was a must read for me. A woman who has escaped a serial killer hopes she has found safety in her rooftop hideaway above a Bloomsbury museum...a landscape architect with his own demons intrudes on her territory to build a garden on her rooftop for a TV series...there is the possibility of a new life for both of them, but an old enemy is closing in. How intriguing. I had already read a couple of Schwartz's lighthearted short romances and liked her bright and breezy style. I wanted to see what she'd do with something different. I wasn't disappointed, although Sky Garden wasn't quite the taut psychological thriller I was expecting. It held my attention from start to finish and I was totally involved in what was happening to Lanie and Nick. Schwartz certainly has the ability to draw readers right into a story. However, I kept feeling as if it was the second book in a series and that I'd missed the first one which revealed her experience with the serial killer. There's definitely scope for a prequel here. I hope one's on the way.

Another interesting read by West Aussie author, Jenny Schwartz.
I like Jenny's London-set books and have enjoyed her paranormal 'Collegium' series, particularly Doctor Wolf which is also set there.
Sky Garden was not paranormal, and for some reason - I'd been expecting it to be :)
The opening chapter really hooked me. It had me asking all the right questions, such as, why was our heroine so frightened when she is surprised on the rooftop by the hero? What happened in her past to make her hide behind Edwardian-vintage dresses in an Edwardian-themed museum?
And I was intrigued and wanted to find out!
I liked Nick and Lanie as a couple.
I also loved this line: "He looked into her eyes and she fell into his."
This is a very sweet romance with a sinister suspense line woven through, and a good resolution.

I loved this one. I expected Lanie to be broken and hiding away after her ordeal but she was far from it. I loved her strength of character and her maturity. Nick too, had a quiet inner strength that I found appealing. Their reactions toward each other were those of a romantic nature that I’ve come to expect from Ms Schwartz, but it was the story itself and the way they reacted with the sub characters had me ensnared. Each one became the piece of a puzzle that twisted throughout the story that I had to read in order to discover Lanie’s secret and the research, as it was in Beyond Regeneration, was well structured and evident throughout the story. There may have been a tear or two shed in this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well written but very slow 22 April 2016
By Beckett Shiona - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Although very well written, the pace of this non-murder mystery is incredibly slow. I enjoyed watching the slow bloom of a relationship between the two main characters, and the subtle hints and reveals that led to understanding the mystery behind the protagonist (which I will not describe, as I do not like spoilers, myself.) But some of the plot is a bit predictable -- not terribly slow, just a bit, well, Cinderella in theme. And while the main characters are well-developed, some of the secondary characters are a bit stock. All in all a good read, just ponderous in pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars To some people that would be bad but for me 15 February 2016
By Brian's Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading Lanie and Nick’s story. It was a lot more complex than I expected and while there was a suspense element in the book, it truly didn’t come to fruition until almost the ending. To some people that would be bad but for me, I loved it.

Lanie had some growing to do in the book. She no innocent but considering what she went through before the book, I can understand everything about her in the beginning. She needed to bloom, just like the rooftop garden, and she did. With Nick’s help and in a sense his father and Chloe, it happened.

Nick was a dream from the beginning. Patient and kind to Lanie from the get go. He never expected too much from her except friendship. In fact, after thinking about it, these two never realized that they were falling in love until about 65% in the book. For this reader, that’s a welcome diversion. Was a frustrated at times, yes but the end was so worth it in the end.

While the book is supposed to be about a rooftop garden that Nick designs, it is really about Lanie blooming again has a person with and without Nick. Beautifully done by Ms. Schwartz.

If you are looking for a good romance with a dash of suspense, look no further than Rooftop Garden. My heart did crack in certain places but Ms. Schwartz righted it again.

*I received this book for the sole purpose of my opinion. My opinion is my own and I was not paid for it.*
