Adjusting to marriage could be challenge enough for two world-weary people, but Zoe Luce and Ethan Truax have a knack for seeking out suspense-worthy challenges in Jayne Ann Krentz's playful Truth or Dare. Zoe's brief tenure in a private psychiatric hospital hasn't shaken her psychic abilities, but her uncertainty about her impetuous marriage to Ethan now has her rattled. Each is determined to protect the other from an unknown adversary who seems determined to prevent anyone from learning the truth about Whispering Springs' revered cultural icon, Walter Kirwan, and the whereabouts of his missing manuscript. Krenz's judicious sprinkling of fascinating detail everything from feng shui interiors to middle-aged vitamins adds zest to this thoroughly enjoyable romp through life and death in the cobwebby shadows of sunny Whispering Springs. Sandy Huseby writes and reviews from her homes in Fargo, North Dakota, and lakeside in northern Minnesota.
