Silent Evidence

Rachel Grant is my favourite author of romantic suspense and her recent Flashpoint series has been amazing; action-packed, steamy, topical stories featuring complex, engaging characters and edge-of-your-seat plots that have never failed to pull me in and keep me glued to the pages from start to fini ...

Witness on the Run

I'm fascinated by books set in the harsh wilderness of Alaska, so Susan Cliff's Witness on the Run seemed like the perfect book for me. It features a slow-burn romance between interesting leads and a healthy dose of suspense. It's not a perfect book, but I enjoyed it just the same. Tala Walker ha ...

Before We Were Strangers

Before We Were Strangers is the fast-paced story of one woman's attempt to uncover the truth about a long-buried family secret and the deep, abiding love she reclaims along the way. When Sloane McBride was just five years old, her mother disappeared without a trace. Her father, a powerful man wit ...

The Frame-Up

The Frame-Up is the first book in Meghan Scott Molin’s brand new series of mysteries about an on-the-edge comic book writer who falls in love with a straight-laced cop – and the series of comic-based murders that binds them together. Michael-Grace – MG - Martin is a somewhat brusque geek, c ...

Unspeakable

Unspeakable is book four in Elisabeth Naughton’s Deadly Secrets series featuring the adoptive McClane siblings, and although I haven’t read the other books, it works pretty well as a standalone.  There are, of course, some recurring characters and past events referred to, but the author gives e ...

At Your Service

If you're looking for an exciting and humorous mystery, a bit of adventure, an older-couple romance, and aren't squeamish about blood and bruises then At Your Service should definitely be on your to-read list. The hero is a Daniel Craig type of James Bond figure and the heroine is a self-assured, sm ...

Hiding the Moon

Hiding the Moon is nominally book four in Amy Lane’s Fish Out of Water series, but really it’s a branch off the main tree, a spin-off featuring some of the characters who appeared in secondary roles in the previous book, A Few Good Fish.  (For which there are spoilers in this review).  In that ...

Maggie Needs an Alibi

While my paranormal reading waxes and wanes, romantic suspense has been a steady favorite with me. For some reason, though, I kept starting books and setting them aside this month. I finally happened upon Maggie Needs an Alibi, first in a series from Kasey Michaels. I know Michaels' writing primaril ...

Against the Dark

I haven’t read anything by Carolyn Crane before, but her romantic suspense novels come highly recommended, so I picked up this first book in her four-book series The Associates for this months’ prompt.  It’s fast-moving and well-written with some nicely steamy scenes – plus the hero is a ho ...

Craft Brew

Although I wasn’t wild about Imperial Stout, the first book in Layla Reyne’s new Trouble Brewing series, I wanted to read book two, Craft Brew, because I was intrigued by what was clearly going to be the series’ overarching plotline, and hoped for progression. I got a little of what I wanted, ...
