Crystal Rock chief of police Sam Danielson could not have been happier with the way things were going; he finally had a chance at a life with Penny Wentworth after over twenty years of waiting. He did not even mind taking on her special-needs teenage son as his own. After dropping Penny off at the airport, Sam noticed a car tailing him which turned out to belong to the FBI; they were following him just in case his ex-wife Vanessa, who it turned out was actually still his wife, contacted him. Then all hell broke loose when Vanessa's body was discovered, a few days after her father had been murdered. Sam and his team, together with the FBI, started investigating the murders, and in the process he discovered the dark and sad life Vanessa had lived at the hands of her sickening father and his business partners. And the truth behind the murders was not at all that they had expected.

The Tales of the Dragonfly Series: Book II: In Flight by Tamara Ferguson is a brilliantly written, compelling, and fast-paced story with the sheer ability to completely captivate your mind and draw a real connection with the character. Each page of the novel is filled with drama and adrenaline racing action with characters that are truly believable and a plot that feels real. Tamara Ferguson produced a perfect fusion between the dark and light sides of the plot to create a novel with a flawlessly balanced reading thrill that feels like riding on a roller coaster in a perfect breeze, but at twice the normal speed.

Tamara Ferguson’s novel, Tales of the Dragonfly: Book II: In Flight, is set in Crystal Rock, Wisconsin. This is Penny and Sam’s hometown where they meet again after some time for the wedding of their mutual friends, Jake and Danielle Loughlin, at Dragonfly Pointe Inn. Penny is a successful designer and she is in charge of the flower arrangements while Sam is the town’s new chief of police. Since they were teenagers, Penny has been attracted to Sam’s good looks but their relationship never went beyond a casual friendship. Today, however, Sam has made sure that he will be Penny’s escort and the two find themselves spending an intimate weekend together after the wedding. It would have been a beautiful reunion except that they both have gone through past experiences that threaten to destroy their future together. When a woman’s dead body is found, who turns out to be Vanessa, Sam’s ex-wife, events take a dangerous turn.

Book II: In Flight is the second in the Tales of the Dragonfly series. The book has won the 2013 Pinnacle Book Achievement Award Winner as Best Book Suspense and made the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards as a Second Round Romance Contender. It is a heart stopping romance and suspense novel about two individuals who are perfect for each other but their past relationships stand in the way of a lasting intimacy. With the author’s creative writing style, events unravel smoothly and at just the right pace. The character development is excellent and each of the characters in this story is relevant to the narrative. The blending of romance and suspense is quite successful, too, so that it is an effort to put down the book without reading until the last page in one sitting. After experiencing difficulties in life, Sam and Penny are on the brink of a renewal so when they meet again at the aptly named Dragonfly Pointe Inn, destiny seems to be giving them just the perfect hint.

Sam and Penny long sought one another, but neither knew of the interest of the other. Their journey to reunite is at the center of the mystery Tamara Ferguson presents in Tales of the Dragonfly: Book II: In Flight. Sam is the local police chief in the Wisconsin town in which he met Penny years before. For her part, Penny moved to New York where she handles her family’s floral business while caring for her autistic son. When they spend time together at the wedding of mutual friends back in Wisconsin, Sam determines it is time to pursue Penny. Each had left a failed marriage behind and Penny had been abused by her former husband. Consequently, they have some difficulty in learning to trust one another. While their mutual friends support their reunion, someone else has another plan in mind, a plan that could leave Penny dead.

Tales of the Dragonfly, set in a lovely Wisconsin lake town, includes a host of characters, from the ordinary to the unusual. In it, Tamara Ferguson has presented a story of intrigue, mystery and love. When Vanessa, the woman Sam (thought he) had divorced, shows up in town and is later found dead, the police and FBI try to put the pieces together. All the while, Sam and Penny seek to determine whether they have a future together. When it becomes clear that Vanessa’s murder was personal, readers will urge Sam on as he rushes to solve the mystery before harm might befall his beloved Penny.
