Snowbound at Christmas by Debbie Mason is the fifth book in the Christmas, Colorado series but do not let that stop you from picking it up. I have not read the earlier novels and Mason tells a suspenseful, romantic tale with colorful characters set against the Colorado snow-filled countryside.
Illusion by J.S. Cooper is the first novel in the Swept Away series. It is a mix of romance and suspense as it follows Bianca London who is kidnapped and marooned on a deserted island with a stranger. Heated and laced with mystery Illusions was an interesting story with a lot of potential.
Do you ever start reading or listening to a book and almost immediately slip into the world and realize you are about to take an epic journey? That was my experience with the audio version of Lock In, the first book in the Lock In series by John Scalzi and narrated by Wil Wheaton. Lock In is a brilliantly told mystery crime thriller set in a futuristic science fiction world. The geek in me was completely giddy! The world was fascinating, frighteningly realistic and friggin cool my friends.
I read a review on a blog about The Restorer and immediately downloaded it for my nook. Sadly I cannot remember who reviewed it, but thank you so much! I love crime mysteries and when you wrap it in a little paranormal woo-woo I begin to drool. Amanda Stevens delivered a beautiful, dark, chilling mystery with a side of sexual tension. I quickly became swept up in this tale, the characters and the crime. The opening sentence “I was nine when I saw my first ghost.” grabbed me and the tale kept me enthralled.
