Present Danger

Present Danger includes a reunion romance, but the love story takes a definite back seat to the intriguing mystery the characters need to unravel. As the first book in the Rocky Mountain Courage series, the author strives to introduce a large cast of characters spread across an expansive geographic ...

Cold Cruel Kiss

Book four in Toni Anderson’s Cold Justice: Crossfire series, Cold Cruel Kiss is a nail-bitingly tense, superbly plotted romantic suspense novel set in Buenos Aires, which finds Supervisory Special Agent Max Hawthorne of the FBI’s Crisis Negotiation Unit called in after the seventeen-year-old dau ...

Honeytrap

Aster Glenn Gray’s Honeytrap is a compelling and unique story that charts the development  of the  unlikely relationship between an American FBI agent and a lieutenant in the Red Army (and possible KGB agent) over a period of around thirty-five years.  It’s extremely well-written, and the aut ...

Variable Onset

Layla Reyne is an author who can be a bit hit and miss for me, yet something about her writing keeps me coming back to her books.  I thoroughly enjoyed her début series, (Agents Irish and Whiskey) but was less enthusiastic about the follow up (Trouble Brewing), even though I liked the characters a ...

Girls Like Us

Girls Like Us is author Cristina Alger's second novel, but it's my first experience with her writing. She puts a fresh spin on the well-known serial killer trope, making this novel a pleasure to read instead of the slog it otherwise might have been. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good thriller center ...

Say You're Sorry

Karen Rose has been on my list of auto-buy authors for the past several years. I don't even look at the synopses of her upcoming releases before pre-ordering them. I trust her that much, and Say You're Sorry, the first book in an all-new series, is yet another example of why I firmly believe no one ...

The Thing About Love

I’m sure I’ve mentioned my love of rereading books at least a dozen times in reviews. It’s how I weed out good and great books from DIK, I-must-own-it-NOW books. Desert Isle Keeper status is reserved for novels which I’m eager to reread immediately. By the time I finished The Thing About Lov ...

Burn Down the Night

Burn Down the Night is the third book in author Molly O’Keefe’s suspenseful romance series Everything I Left Unsaid. The first two books, Everything I Left Unsaid and The Truth About Him were a duology featuring Annie and Dylan, with book one told from Annie’s point of view and book two, a con ...
