A Soldier's Homecoming

As a fan of Rachel Lee's Conard County series, I was excited to see a new entry at long last. At her best, Lee creates very sympathetic (and often tortured) characters, and very tender relationships. Unfortunately, A Soldier's Homecoming is nowhere near the best that this author is capable of wri ...

A Soldier's Homecoming

When I first began to read series romances, one of my favorite continuing series was the one Rachel Lee set in Conard County, Wyoming. I still have several of the books tucked away in my comfort read box, and I re-read them ever so often. The last book in the series was the 1999-published Involunt ...

The Hunted

I started reading The Hunted thinking it was a romantic suspense novel. After I finished, it seemed quite clear that this was simply a suspense as there was no real romance at all – sex yes, but not much emotion or chemistry. This meant that I had to readjust my opinion after the fact, which was ...

Wildcard

I have been a fan of Rachel Lee ever since I discovered her Conard County series back in college. Since I'd never read any of her single title releases, I jumped at the chance to review Wildcard, the first in a new series. While this novel is loosely connected to others Lee has written, it is ...

Something Deadly

I have many of Rachel Lee's old Silhouette romances, but haven't read any of her recent work and had no idea what I was getting into with Something Deadly. Although it's technically categorized as romantic suspense, this is a spine-chilling, page-turning ghost story that I read in one sitting. ...

Last Breath

Though well liked, rumors have swirled around Father Brendan Quinlan for months, dark whispers about his past and inappropriate relationships with parishioners. The reports are enough for the Church to send someone to St. Simeon's Parish to investigate him. Brendan knows there are some members of th ...

With Malice

Senator Grant Lawrence is, so everyone agrees, the next Kennedy. And with a bid for the presidency sure to be in his future, his political career faces the kind of threat that could end it all when his children's nanny and his ex-stripper girlfriend are murdered in his Florida home. ...

July Thunder

If I had attempted the review after reading the first 25 pages of July Thunder, the book would have received a fairly low grade. But after a while, things smoothed out a bit and by the end, it turned into a nice little read. The back cover claims that July Thunder is "A searing tale of love an ...

Under Suspicion

Rachel Lee's latest novel Under Suspicion is mislabeled as romance. In truth, it is an extremely suspenseful mystery accompanied by a flat, boring romance, which is acted out by a flat and boring hero and heroine. Luckily the secondary characters are all that the leading couple are not - interesting ...

A January Chill

There are some books you just should not read if you’re feeling depressed or gloomy and A January Chill is definitely one of them. Right up to the last few pages the characters are so depressed, unhappy, and angry that by the time I was done reading the book, so was I. Twelve years ago Karen ...
