I remember the cheesy novelizations of AMC in the 70’s. The books allowed fans to dig a deeper into the characters. It also reminds me of the detailed summaries that used to be published in Digest. I might not keep them on office bookshelf, but count me in August 23, 2010 at 10:02 pm #369100 Anonymous 2897 Posts The synopsis for the second book has changed! “The fallout from Richard Gaines financial debacle spreads deeply into the lives of the citizens from Salem. With John and Marlena’s help, Charley believes Richie’s unspeakable wrongs have been rectified. But soon she discovers the scandal has far wider implications taking her on a life-changing journey. A profusion of fireworks fills the sky during a jubilant celebration of Chinese New Year, masking a deadly blood bath in a massive drug war stretching from Hong Kong to the spectacular jungles of South Africa. As wounded are brought into Tomali Clinic in the heart of the Timbavarti, Dr. Kayla Brady and her renegade husband Steve ‘Patch’ Johnson realize that drugs are just the tip of the iceberg. With the help of family and friends in the media and the International Security Alliance from Hong Kong to London they work to uncover the deadly secret that threatens not only the clinic struggling due to financial ruin, but their very lives and their love. New relationships are forged, old loves destroyed, and others emerge from the cataclysmic events stronger than ever.” http://www.amazon.ca/Stirring-Salem-Sheri-Anderson/dp/1402244770/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1282593684&sr=8-1 November 9, 2010 at 5:54 pm #378566 Anonymous 2897 Posts I am LOVING this book!!! It’s so great to catch up with John, Marlena, Belle and Shawn again. This book is so much better than the current Days of Our Lives. Thank God they started these books for former viewers like me who dropped Days when our favourite characters were eliminated.

I wonder if Sheri Anderson is worried her books “don’t count” anymore. Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
