Relative Justice

Relative Justice is book one in Gregory Ashe’s latest series to feature Emery Hazard and John-Henry Somerset, Hazard and Somerset: Arrows in the Hand, and even though it’s the start of a new series, it’s most definitely NOT the place to start if you’ve never picked up a H&S book before. ...

Madison Square Murders

Madison Square Murders, the first book in C.S. Poe’s new Memento Mori series, is a compelling read featuring an intriguing, cleverly constructed mystery and one of the most unusual lead characters I’ve ever come across, a neuroatypical detective in New York City whose unique memory condition mak ...

Cold as Ice

When I broke out in a sweat during the first chapter of the newest installment of Toni Anderson’s  Negotiators series, Cold As Ice, I knew it was going to be a terrific romantic suspense novel. Present are all the hallmarks of Anderson’s nail-biters: fast-paced plot, engaging story, robust char ...

Last Seen Alone

Last Seen Alone is listed as one of Laura Griffin’s rare stand-alone romantic suspense novels. The story of a missing woman, her devoted attorney and the cop determined to see justice done, it’s a lovely book that will be sure to please fans of the genre. Brandon Reynolds has been a homicide ...

The Runaway Heiress

Meg Tilly does such a good job of the world-building in her tales of romantic suspense that reading her books always tends to be a treat.  The Runaway Heiress is a little more fun than her more slice-of-life Solace Island series – which I already liked (and to which this book is lightly tied) – ...

Uncharted

I haven’t read Whiteout – the book that precedes Uncharted in Adriana Anders’  Survival Instincts series – but although there is an overarching plotline running through the series, there’s enough information provided here for a newbie to jump into the story without feeling lost, so Unchar ...

Codirection

Note: There are spoilers for the previous Borealis books in this review. Well.  Here we are at the concluding instalment of Gregory Ashe’s Borealis: Without a Compass series, and what a ride it’s been!  We’ve watched North and Shaw solve crimes of course, but these books are so much more ...

Dangerous Ground

Given the number of disappointing romantic suspense reads I’ve experienced lately, it’s no understatement to say that I’ve been very eagerly awaiting the next book from Rachel Grant, someone I know I can rely on to deliver a fast-paced and tightly-plotted story of mystery and suspense alongsid ...

Blind Tiger

Blind Tiger is a classic Sandra Brown romantic suspense story and if you are a fan of this author or that genre at all, you will definitely want to pick it up. The Great War is over but almost two years after armistice, Thatcher Hutton is still finding his way home. Lack of money and no job means ...

An Absence of Motive

Maggie Wells is the author of a number of contemporary romances  (a couple of which have been reviewed here) and when I noticed her name attached to a new Harlequin Intrigue romantic suspense series, I decided to give her a try.  An Absence of Motive has an interesting and fairly well developed pl ...
