Romantic Suspense

A
Custody Battles

Note: This is the thirteenth full-length novel in the Hazard and Somerset series, so new readers are advised not to start here.  There are spoilers for the previous books in this review. I think, if I had to write a one-word review of Gregory Ashe’s Custody Battles, it would be OUCH.  I spent ...

The Last Goodnight

Kat Martin is a juggernaut of romantic suspense and one of the authors who got me hooked on the genre over a decade ago. She’s a master of packing a story with emotion, robust characters, and plausible mysteries that keep me reaching for her new releases every time. The Last Goodnight is the fi ...

Broken Falcon

I’m a huge fan of romantic suspense, and when Rachel Grant hit my radar eight years ago with Concrete Evidence, I knew I’d found a new favorite. Everything about it appealed to me, from the archaeology to the deceit. Much to my delight, it was not a fluke. Broken Falcon is book twelve in the ...

A
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 ...

A
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) – ...

C
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 ...
