Relentless

I’m always on the look-out for reliably good new authors of romantic suspense, and in Elizabeth Dyer, I think I’ve found one.  Relentless, the second book in her Somerton Security series (and her second published novel), is a strongly-written, fast-paced story featuring a team of ex-military ty ...

The Girl in the Moss

Loreth Anne White's two Angie Pallorino novels, The Drowned Girls and The Lullaby Girl received high praise here at AAR. The third and final book in the trilogy releases this month, and Maggie Boyd and Dabney Grinnan - both fans of the author's work - read The Girl in the Moss and are here to share ...

Object of Desire

Reviewing romantic suspense is a bit of a sticky wicket, as it’s extremely difficult to discuss a suspense novel without spoiling it. Reader, Object of Desire has so many of secrets (and potential bad guys) it’s difficult to keep track of them all!  And then Ms. Maclean further muddies the wate ...

Her Last Word

I’ve read and enjoyed a number of Mary Burton’s romantic suspense novels and have generally found them to contain complex, intriguing mysteries with a reasonably-sized helping of romance that is enough to satisfy my shippy little heart.  Unfortunately however, Ms. Burton’s latest standalone t ...

I Am Justice

I Am Justice is book one in Diana Munoz Stewart's Band of Sisters series. It's an action-packed tale with a satisfying romance, but it's not entirely realistic. Fortunately, I was pretty invested in the story and enjoyed it well enough - even if I did roll my eyes on a few occasions. Not everyone ...

Dead Girl Running

I enjoy a good mystery or romantic suspense novel and have been lucky enough to find some fantastically good authors in the genre who are now on my ‘must read’ list.  I’m always on the look-out for the next addition, so I eagerly picked up Christina Dodd’s Dead Girl Running, the first book ...

Murder Notes

Cop movies are notorious for not presenting the realities of policing. Instead, they have a tendency to show a misfit loner or two solving cases that procedure would have prevented them from ever clearing and thus triumphing over ‘the system’.  While the American police force has come increasin ...

Navy SEAL Rescue

This was a total goat screw of a situation. That line perfectly describes this fantastic romantic suspense novel. In short, Navy SEAL Rescue is a story of an Assyrian doctor who's caught up in the war in Syria and Iraq and manages to escape the Da'esh, the Islamic Front, with a daring trek over t ...
