Neptune's Ring by Ali Spooner

Levi is happily working as a bartender at Venus Rising, an exclusive lesbian resort, when Nat and Liz make her an offer she can’t refuse. In a whirlwind of activity, Levi finds herself alone on a private island overseeing the work to open a new luxurious lesbian resort, of which she is now a partner in business with Liz, Nat and a couple of other friends.

Levi is head over heels in love with Vanessa, but Simone is not going to let her go, not with out a fight. What devious and underhanded tricks will Simone use to try to lure Levi back?

Work on the new resort is going really well, but the island has a reputation for being haunted by a young woman who had disappeared while she worked on the island for the previous owner. Will Levi see any ghostly happenings? Will she want to stay on the island alone knowing of this? Is there even any truth to the hauntings?

As the resort developments are near to being completed, Levi makes a startling discovery. She also receives a proposal she can’t refuse, she’s been asked to marry. But who has won Levi’s heart, Simone or Vanessa?

This sequel is equally as good as Venus Rising. The story continues on from where Venus Rising left off. It is an easy book to get into and there is enough back ground for it to be a standalone. But I would advise reading the first book before this one as you would be seriously missing out on an excellent book if you don’t.

I like the way Levi has come into her own in this book. She’s taken on a partnership and with it a lot of responsibility. The story continues on Venus Rising, is partly on the Sappho One and moves across to Neptune’s Ring, which gives us some new scenic settings, which are really well described and easy to visualize.

A lot of the characters are the same, but there are new ones added in, all as loveable as the first set and all playing their parts to perfection to progress the story forward.

The story has an entirely different angle to Venus Rising. There is a ghost and a mystery to be solved. There is also a lovely heartfelt romance at the heart of the book, with all the red hot activity that comes with it. The book is also full of twists and turns, is exciting and a page turner.

There hasn’t been anything said about another book in this series, but there is definitely an opening for one. I, for one, would like to see another book with these characters. I haven’t had enough of them yet.

Unfortunately, as with Venus Rising, there are some typos in this book. But, they didn’t detract from the story at all. The reasonable price counteracts them in my opinion.
