Don't Breathe a Word

I’m a big fan of the current thriller market, with its dark often psychotic villains and flawed narrators, but every once in a while I miss the classic police procedural romantic suspense novels that were popular back in the nineties and nones. Fortunately, some writers are still producing good no ...

Texas Hold'Em

The latest in the Hotter in Texas series started slowly and I had trouble getting into it. Fortunately this is one case in which the book became stronger and more engaging as it progressed. Veterinarian Leah Reece leads a quiet life and wants to keep it that way. She has an older h ...

Divorced, Desperate and Delicious

Divorced, Desperate and Delicious might not be my first pick amongst titles for this sweet, funny romance, but I guess it gets the point across. Author author Christie Craig shows a lot of promise in the world of single title contemporary romance (she wrote a series romance released in 1994 under th ...
