Creating Characters #3 - Emmett and Emma Kenston of 'Where Lemons Bloom'

Emmett and Emma Kenston 

Emmett and Adamo meet at Harvard, where they are college roommates. Adamo is the athletic type, into martial arts, on the rowing team, into rock climbing.  And woman-bait. Adamo is good at the academics but is not driven.

Emmett is diametrically opposite. He is short, stoop shouldered, he wears glasses, (think Woody Allen), and he is buried in technology. Against all odds he and Adamo become fast friends. They seemed to fill each other’s gaps. Adamo, a social animal, Emmett, a recluse, a serious student, with few social graces, and inept around women, but a wiz at math and at the computer –a near genius.

Where Lemons Bloom by Blair McDowellThey go on to graduate school together and decide after graduation, to set up an investment business. Adamo with his charm and contacts is a natural for bringing in the clients, while reclusive Emmett is a whiz at choosing the right stocks at the right moment.

Emmett has never had a girlfriend. He is reclusive, and a bit afraid of women.

Emma Kenston, Emmett’s twin sister, is disabled, wheel chair bound. Equal to her brother in intelligence, she is a writer who lives in seclusion in a residential facility in upstate NY, paid for by Emmett. Emma is charming, and beautiful. How they can be twins is a mystery to everyone who knows them. However she is very close to Emmett. She may be the only one who understands his tortured genius.

Where Lemons Bloom by Blair McDowell
Blair McDowell's latest tale of Suspense  takes the reader to Italy's  beautiful Amalfi Coast.

"Adamo and Eve are two people who have both been through their own versions of hell. They are both certain that they are not ready to enter into a relationship, but love finds them anyway. Then it takes them on the non-stop thrill ride of their lives."
-   Marlene Harris,


When Eve Anderson meets Adamo de Leone on a ship bound for Europe, she has no idea of the dark secret that will endanger both their lives. She accompanies him to his home on Italy’s Amalfi Coast to open an inn left to him by his grandfather. But then she learns he spent 5 years in prison for a crime he claims he didn’t commit. Could the man she loves be responsible for embezzling eighty million dollars from the investment firm he once owned?

Adamo wants to hold Eve at arm’s length until he can clear his proud family name. But when there is an attempt on his life and Eve is terrorized by a gun-bearing thug, he realizes how much he wants her, and he must accept whatever help he can get to uncover the well-hidden trail of a six-year-old crime.
