A Rainbow Above Us

A Rainbow Above Us contains most of Sharon Sala’s go-to tropes, some of her weakest writing, and is, frankly, not worth a read, especially if this is your first entrée into her Blessings, Georgia series. Bowie James vowed years ago never to return to Blessings after he and his mom fled the tow ...

The Curl Up and Dye

I love makeover stories. The classic Pygmalion tale of a woman who discovers just what she can accomplish is a story I never seem to grow tired of hearing. Not all such tales turn out fabulous though. In this case what starts out as an interesting story winds up bogged down by its determination to w ...

'Til Death

I very much liked the heroine from Don’t Cry for Me, the second book in the Rebel Ridge series so it was a given that I was going to read the third book, the story about Meg Walker, the sister of the two previous heroes. Her story is entertaining, although my willingness to suspend disbelief was t ...

Don't Cry for Me

I am always amazed when I re-discover a long published author. As the story unfolded , I kept thinking to myself, ”This is a good book, why did you stop reading her?” Don’t Cry for Me has some plot holes that typically would drive me crazy, but in the hands of Ms. Sala I didn’t care. The p ...

Blown Away

I’m all about some drama in a story, but Blown Away by Sharon Sala went a bit too far. When the reader (in this case, me) is rolling her eyes more than she’s engrossed in the story, something’s gone wrong. Cari North has a pretty terrible day in the beginning of the book. ...

Cut Throat

Cut Throat is the second in a series, and evidently begins practically where Nine Lives left off. Sala fills in the back story very well and I wasn’t lost a bit. Instead, the book immediately pulled me in; I liked it so well I will probably follow the series. Cat Dupree is a bounty hunter. She is ...

Rider On Fire

In her early books for Silhouette Intimate Moments, Sharon Sala often blended romantic suspense elements with a special touch of magic that made them powerful, emotional reads. Titles like Annie and the Outlaw and When You Call My Name showcased her distinctive writing style and remain some of the m ...

Whippoorwill

In the preface to this book, Sharon Sala writes that it is a new and different type of book for her: "Whippoorwill is not a romance, or a historical, or a western, yet it has a little bit of all of the above," she writes. "I call it a funny, sometimes bawdy romp through the old West." I respect Sala ...

D
Out of the Dark

Sharon Sala is certainly no stranger to difficult topics. Her past novels have handled subjects such as miscarriage, disfigurement, and child abuse. This novel, with its gut-wrenching portrayal of child prostitution, certainly has one of the grimmest themes I have encountered in romance. But, while ...

Dark Water

Sharon Sala has written many enjoyable series romances for Silhouette, but if Dark Water is any indication of the quality of her single title releases for MIRA, I think I'll stick to her shorter books. As far as romantic suspense novels, this one didn't do much for me. Twenty yea ...
