Private Affair

Sometimes when I review a book, I can grade it easily because it's consistently a B or an A or an F or whatever throughout. Not so with Private Affair. This romantic suspense novel starts off strong, but pretty much implodes toward the end, leaving readers with a story that starts off well and ends ...

Betrayed

Every once in a while I find myself wanting to write a one word review. In the case of this particular book that word would be average. Our story actually starts off with a bang. Elena Reyes is in the human resources department to work out an issue when a crazed ex-employee enters, ...

Beyond Fearless

While I normally dislike paranormals, there are certain plot elements - fantasy, science fiction, paranormal - that I enjoy, including ghosts, benevolent witches, and psychics. Beyond Fearless has a heavy psychic/science fiction plot that is intriguing, however, the story as a whole fails to signif ...

New Moon

The frantic pace of this storyline and some poor choices by the heroine made it hard to enjoy this book, even though I liked the characters. I found myself dragging my feet every time I had to pick it up. This is clearly connected with other works by this author, although keeping up with past chara ...

Spellbound

Spellbound is the latest in Rebecca York's long-running 43 Light Street, which has lost some steam in recent entries. This one doesn't rank among the series' best, but it is the most entertaining in a long time. When strange events plague Andre Gascon's Louisiana estate, he contacts private inves ...

Undercover Encounter

Fans of romantic suspense have enjoyed Rebecca York's 43 Light Street Harlequin Intrigue series for a number of years. Since I, too, am a fan, I picked up her latest thriller on a whim. Unfortunately, Undercover Encounter, the kickoff to Harlequin Intrigue's New Orleans Confidential continuity mini- ...

Witching Moon

Witches, werewolves, and murder, oh my! Witching Moon has it all. And while it sounds like an exciting mix, oddly enough it's anything but. Instead, the result is a muted, uneven mix of romance, mystery, and paranormal mythology. Adam Marshall (brother of Killing Moon's Ross) has r ...

Out of Nowhere

In the introductory letter to Out of Nowhere the author says that she wanted to do a "reverse twist" on one of her earlier 43 Light Street books, Nowhere Man. That's a favorite of mine and one of the best books in the series, so I had high hopes for this one. While it's certainly unusual, it's also ...

A
Nowhere Man

Rebecca York is an author who's specialized in writing some unusual stories over the years. Nowhere Man is one of the very best of her roughly five dozen releases. Part military action thriller, part mystery, part poignant romance, it also creates a compelling and unique hero unlike any other in the ...

Edge of the Moon

Some people might think comparing a single title to a very good series romance isn't much of a compliment, but in this case it is. Rebecca York is a veteran series author, primarily for the Harlequin Intrigue line, whose books I used to enjoy a lot. Her most recent series books have disappointed, th ...
