Set on an island off the South Carolina coast, Illusion is the third book in the Heirs of Watson Island series.  Southern Gothic fiction steeped in mysticism and spirits with strange disappearances and characters who live for centuries, readers who pick up this book without having read the first two will have a difficult time keeping track of the characters even with the family tree that is presented in the first pages. The story revolves around three families with adjoining plantations including waterfront property who have existed on the island for centuries. Barrie Watson is trying to heal the wounds of these families who have grown to distrust each other while still keeping the essence of all that is Waston’s Landing.  The writing is descriptive with easy visualization and moves along at a good pace.  This will force our library to attain the 1st two books as well.
