The Silver Dollar By Angela Dandy

The Silver Dollar ‘The Silver Dollar’ is the second book in ‘The Silveries’ series by Angela Dandy.

After twenty years without him, Jennifer’s son, Jamie, turns up at Magnolia Court. Handsome and charming, he wins the hearts and minds of the residents. Or does he? Is he really all he seems? Is he telling the whole truth or is there something in his past that he wants to remain secret? The Silveries won’t rest until the truth is out.

I enjoyed this story, it was filled with a mix of personalities that made for engaging reading, but I found it lacking in parts that fully gripped my attention. The main characters, Jennifer and Jamie are a complex pair with their estranged relationship. Jamie is quite an odious man, who’s left a trail of heartache due to his gambling addiction, whilst Jennifer is quite a flighty character, she’s warmhearted and welcoming to newcomers to the Magnolia Court, but her first love is acting. The story flows at a leisurely pace with twists and drama that added to the tale, but I thought as part of the story was about the resident’s adaptation of ‘The Importance of Ernest’ that was a key plot line but it was very rarely mentioned.

This is the second book in the series and it would have been good to have had a little more background on the characters.

Vividly written and cleverly crafted personalities that were vile and kind in equal measure, ‘The Silver Dollar’ is a cosy story.

You can buy ‘The Silver Dollar’ from Amazon and is available to buy from good bookshops.
