The Paris Assignment

If you like a good romantic thriller, The Paris Assignment is certainly worth trying. The plot is a fairly classic one, but the author does a good job of putting her own spin on a much-used trope, resulting in a solid read. Abigail McBane is no delicate flower, but even this strong exe ...

The Loner

With one-dimensional characters straight from central casting, cartoonish dialog, and a predictable plot, The Loner was an FTF for me. What’s an FTF, you ask? Cousin to the DNF – Did Not Finish – as a reviewer I was sadly Forced To Finish this unfortunate book. Dakota Carson ...

For Love or Money

The heroine, Holly, thinks she's having a bad time when her date takes her on the hike from hell. But her day abruptly worsens when they stumble across a dead body, and grows still worse when Holly realizes the body is a woman she knows from work. The icing on the cake is that Holly and her date are ...

Exposed

The premise of Exposed is an interesting one (even if I have seen it before): a photographer unknowingly captures a crime taking place, and thus is targeted by the perpetrators. While I had some initial misgivings about this book, things improved and it ended up being an exciting story. ...

Stalked

Billed as a Lucy Kincaid novel, Stalked employs an ensemble cast to solve a decades-old mystery tied to a current murder investigation. Unfortunately, the mystery that began as intriguing ultimately ended up forgettable, as did the characters. When reporter/author Rosemary Weber is ...

Midnight Sacrifice

With this story, I think that author Melinda Leigh was going for a gripping, fast-paced beginning that takes the reader on a non-stop ride. Instead, my experience of reading Midnight Sacrifice was similar to when you are lost and the bus goes roaring past the stop where you think you should have got ...

Sworn to Protect

Taking on the guardianship of a child is a very difficult thing. There are so many transitions and adjustments on all sides, and a lot of awkwardness. When the hero of Sworn to Protect becomes the guardian of a teenager, there are, of course, a lot of changes to be made. However, the emotional adjus ...

Nautier and Wilder

Anthology
The two stories included in Nautier and Wilder were somewhat similar and my reaction to them was much the same. Both stories are romantic suspense and involve women being protected from bad guys by the men in their life. Both dealt with over the top scenarios that put these otherwise ordinary peop ...

Stolen

This is the sixth book in Allison Brennan’s Lucy Kincaid series. I have not read all of the other books in the series and my review of the book might suffer a little for my lack of background knowledge. This book was more of a suspense book with romantic elements than a true romantic suspense so i ...

Freefall

I've been feeling some series fatigue lately, so I was surprised by how much I really wanted to see sequels to Aftershock. It was a fabulous read, and I just had to know what happened to the other earthquake survivors. Those who read Aftershock will be aware that Sam Rutherford is something of a mys ...
