The Most Action-Packed Story of the Series!

I’ve long anticipated the third installment of “The Nikki Boyd Files”, a Romantic Suspense series written by Lisa Harris and published by Revell. Fittingly entitled “Pursued”, this new story is an edge-of-your-seat nail-biter in just as many ways as the previous books in the series (“Vendetta” and “Missing”), but is perhaps even more descriptively violent.

A Brilliant Plot – A Guest Review by Hayley

tangled-webs-imageAt last, the third installment to the “Men of Valor” series has been released! Readers of the first two books in this family saga will undoubtedly flock to Irene Hannon’s newest release, “Tangled Webs”. And with the promise of suspense and intrigue, who wouldn’t?

I am very impressed with the storyline of “Tangled Webs”. The many layers to the plot, and how it all comes together in such a complicated yet understandable way, was nothing short of brilliant, and I credit the author for achieving this task to such a high degree. This book is truly a very intricately woven web of plots, incidents – and consequences. Continue reading

Not a Book I Recommend

traces-of-guilt-imageDee Henderson is the popular and award-winning author of many bestselling series, but honestly, after reading her latest novel, I don’t see what all the hype for her writing is about. “Traces of Guilt: An Evie Blackwell Cold Case”, was published by Bethany House late in 2016. It is presumably the first of a new series, but is somehow connected to many of Henderson’s previous books as well. In any case, I was excited to dive into what I hoped would be a fascinating mystery filled with twists and turns as a years-old mystery is finally solved. That’s what a cold case mystery novel is, right? Unfortunately, not so much…

“Traces of Guilt” was disappointing for several primary reasons: Continue reading

A Great Continuation of the “Elite Guardians” Series

without-warning-imageAlthough Christian Romantic Suspense is not my go-to genre of choice, I am happy to be swept away by one filled with mystery, intrigue, and excitement once in a while. Last year I enjoyed “Always Watching”, the first book in Lynette Eason’s “Elite Guardians” series published by Revell, and recently had the chance to read the second installment entitled “Without Warning”. Just who are the Elite Guardians, you ask? As the tagline for the series explains: “Intensity. Skill. Tenacity. The Bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency Have It All.” Continue reading

Nikki Boyd’s Story Continues…

missing-by-lisa-harrisAt long last, Revell has released the second installment in “The Nikki Boyd Files” by Lisa Harris, entitled “Missing”. Picking up shortly after “Vendetta” came to a close, “Missing” has Nikki and her team on the trail of a missing couple who seemed to escape the scene of a murder in their own home. It doesn’t take long for the husband’s body to be found… But what about the wife? With fast-paced action and nail-biting exploits at every turn, Nikki and her team race against the clock even as the trail of the missing woman leads them into a deadly ring of counterfeit drugs and a murderer who will stop at nothing to keep his secrets hidden. As all skilled detectives know, “The first 48 hours are the most critical…” Continue reading

Two out of Three Impressive Novellas

287150-SINS_OF_PAST_slider“Secrets and lies. Danger that will never go away. Join three beloved masters of Romantic Suspense for novellas where the past will not stay buried.” With a tagline like this, fans of Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, and/or Lynette Eason won’t be able to resist a new three-novella collection published by Bethany House and entitled “Sins of the Past”. Each novella is a standalone, and they are not related to each other in any way. Because of this unique feature, I will briefly share my thoughts about each one individually: Continue reading

You Won’t Be Able to Put it Down (Or Turn Off the Lights!)

Eason_AlwaysWatching“Intensity. Skill. Tenacity. The bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have it all.”

With this tagline, you can’t help but be intrigued; especially when you realize that all of the bodyguards in the agency are women! “Always Watching” is the first book in Lynette Eason’s new series from Revell, aptly entitled “Elite Guardians”. Written from several perspectives, this romantic suspense novel is impossible to put down. It is also fast-paced enough to leave you breathless, and so vividly creepy that you just may want to sleep with the lights on for, say, a WEEK! (Hypothetically speaking, of course, because I definitely didn’t feel that way myself… Well, maybe just a little!) Continue reading
