THE BASLICATO by Carol Ann Kauffman

Book Description:
When Dr. Brook Wilson agreed to take on celebrity Italian race car driver Jason Maxwell, known as"The Baslicato," as her patient, little did she realize their relationship would turn her calm, pleasant, well-ordered life upside down, sending her off on dangerous adventures in southern Italy and northern Ohio. As she prepares him for his big race, she must deal with his demented wife while driving her boyfriend, Dr, Garrett MacEgan into acts of criminal desperation in a attempt to hold on to her.

"The headlines read Heir to Allessandro Auto Fortune Kidnapped Here in Vistaverde.  It went on to report that Jason Allessandro Maxwell, affectionately known as ‘The Baslicato’, the creative automotive design engineer and the driving force behind the new Italian sports car, the ‘Licato,’ was overtaken by force and shoved into the back of a white van on Tuesday evening by two foreign-speaking men here in Vistaverde, Utah, on his way back from speed trials at the Bonneville Salt Flats, as reported by eye witnesses at the scene near the corner of Fairfax Ave. and State St. on State St

A ransom demand has been delivered to his father, the multi-millionaire Thaddeus Maxwell, according to a source who wished to remain anonymous.  Details of the demand have not been released to the general public.  Police Chief Thomas Whitecliff of the Vistaverde Police Department has not been informed of any activity.  Chief Whitecliff assures the citizens that the streets of Vistaverde are safe and this event is an isolated incident involving the internationally known celebrity racecar driver.  Chief Whitecliff stated that although the Allessandro-Maxwell family has not asked for local police assistance or intervention at this time, he and his department are willing to help in any way possible to track down and apprehend the kidnappers and bring Jason Maxwell back home safely.

The idea of a book about a racing driver which is partially set in southern Italy attracted me and I wasn't disappointed. The plot was unusual and intelligent. The character of Jason/Richard was extremely well written and I definitely sympathised over his confusion at having another man's memories while in his own body. The love between Richard/Jason and Nicole/Brook was very touching and the chemistry between them was evident without being gratuitously described in a graphic way. Carol Ann Kauffman's characterisation was excellent.

This book is part of the Time After Time series but I found that although I started in the middle of the series it was still easy to understand what was happening. The books do not need to be read in order. I'm really looking forward to reading more in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprise of a read! March 27, 2014

This author wrote a story that kept me intrigued and biting my nails all the way through! The characters are so vivid and likable! Recommended to anyone. It really is a captivating book with treachery at its core! A romance to last for all time. What a strange combination but it ooooh it works so well!

This book was great! It had a little bit of everything in it! Italy, Racing Cars, good looking guys! It's a page turner for sure, and I think it's my favorite so far in the Time after Time series! These books are so good they always keep me coming back to read the next story! I love the theme of the reincarnated lovers throughout all the books, and the ability to read them out of order and not miss a thing! Check this book out, you won't regret it! It's a great read for the summer!
