Carolina Moon on DVD
by Nora Roberts
One of eight Nora Roberts novels that have been adapted as TV-movies/DVD-movies in the past few years. In this one, Claire Forlani plays Tory, a young woman returning to her childhood hometown to relaunch her life and mend some broken fences. Tory has a psychic ability to see flashes of a brutal killer's crimes...that date back to when Tory's best friend was killed when they were both pre-teens. As Tory reconnects with both friends and enemies from her past, she has to decide whether to use her special ability to help catch the killer before they strike again. Both Forlani and Oliver Hudson turn int fine performances as the leads, as does Josie Davis, as Tory's former antagonist Faith. This is definitely a "romantic suspense", but with more emphasis on the suspense than the romance. -- recommended by Scott C. - Bennett Martin Public Library
