What I like About The Madwoman of Preacher’s Cove
I always like this author’s lyrical writing. First off, the book is a pleasure to read. She manages to tell a very good story with no profanity, vulgarity or bodice-ripping erotica.
There is an element of mystery through to the end. Lucie is so mysterious as to almost be unsympathetic. All of that changes as the book progresses. There is light romance which adds to the believability of the characters. As the characters come into their own, one realizes that there are people out there who will take advantage of you. People who don’t mind hurting you.
While there are paranormal scenes, they are spiritual and angelic, not shape-shifting wolves or mutant ghouls.

Angels and paranormal events flow through the stories that writes for her readers. The angels show up in everyday life, quite comfortable in their tasks. These angels may have a battle on their hands, but they are strong and in the right. Joy’s writing isn’t marketed as ‘spiritual warfare. Yet, the strong action reminds this reader of that warfare between good and evil.
Joy’s lyrical style flows through the story creating the most pleasant reading memories. She is comfortable in contemporary scenarios. Readers can see that ease in Madwoman of Preacher’s Cove and Peaches and Lace. The Witch of Blacklion tells us of 19th century history in Ireland. Joy’s first novel, COUNTENANCE is set in both past and present.
