Crosswinds - cover

Rising Storm Episode 3 (Oct. 8): Elisabeth Naughton’s Crosswinds Amazon ** iBooks ** GooglePlay


Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep,

and secrets have the power to destroy...

Nestled among rolling hills and painted with vibrant wildflowers, the bucolic town of Storm, Texas, seems like nothing short of perfection.

But there are secrets beneath the facade. Dark secrets. Powerful secrets. The kind that can destroy lives and tear families apart. The kind that can cut through a town like a tempest, leaving jealousy and destruction in its wake, along with shattered hopes and broken dreams. All it takes is one little thing to shatter that polish.

Reading like an on-going drama in the tradition of classic day and night-time soap operas like Dallas, Dynasty, and All My Children, Rising Storm is full of scandal, deceit, romance, passion, and secrets.
With 1001 Dark Nights as the “producer,” Elisabeth Naughton and Dee Davis use a television model with each week building on the last to create a storyline that fulfills the promise of a drama-filled soap opera. Joining Kenner and Davis in the “writer’s room” is an incredible group of New York Times bestselling authors such as Lexi Blake, Elisabeth Naughton, Jennifer Probst, Larissa Ione, Rebecca Zanetti and Lisa Mondello who have brought their vision of Storm to life.

A serial soap opera containing eight episodes in season one, the season premiere of Rising Storm, CROSSWINDS, debuts September 24th with each subsequent episode releasing consecutively this fall.

So get ready. The storm is coming.

My Review:
This series becomes more and more interesting with every single addition and I am loving it. Unfortunately, I cannot say that for all of the characters. Even though the plot thickens, I would've definitely liked to skip some of the uglier scenes. This episode is mainly focused on the relationship between Luis, Mallory and Lacey. I love Mallory's character and the way she is portrayed in each episode so far. I think she is compassionate and at the same time strong but she can be also hurt deeply and by those who are closest to her.

And, unfortunately, that's exactly what happens. And Lacey is the one who is at fault, her best friend. If I have to be honest, I had a completely different opinion of Lacey so far but it was completely destroyed by what I've read in this episode. She really reminds me of Dakota with her superior opinion of herself and entitlement of everything she wants. Even if she is wrong. I am just hoping that Luis and Mallory will manage to weather the storm that Lacey threw at them because I think they are perfect for each other. And each one of them needs a person they can trust and depend on in their lives.

So, in a few words, this episode is as intriguing as the previous ones. It was mainly focused on Mallory, Luis and Lacey, but there are also glimpses of the other main characters in it. I especially liked the one between Logan and Ginny :) I can't wait to find out what will happen next :)
