I had such fun with Driven to Distraction by Lori Foster. I closed my Kindle grinning from ear to ear. A rescue dog, character growth and toe-curling moments provided the perfect start to the Roads to Love series. I laughed, held my breath and devoured Brodie and Mary’s story.
Privateers, puzzles and kidnapping. Arrgh, Matey! The Other Miss Bridgerton by Julia Quinn is the third novel in the Rokesbys series and I’ve had such a blast with these stories. A witty, delightful heroine and a scoundrel with a soft-side await you as we set sail to Portugal!
Ice by Lauren Carr is the first novel in the Chris Matheson Cold Case Mystery series. After reading another blogger’s review, I one-clicked and while looking for books that qualified for the #HoHoHoRAT I discovered it on my Kindle. Murder, cold cases and a secret club of retired law enforcement meeting in the library delivered a stellar story.
Diamond Fire by Ilona Andrews is a novella in their Hidden Legacy series and while I can’t hide my disappointment that this was only a novella I will tell you this was amazing! Despite the page count the Andrews delivered a full story filled with a mystery, snark and glimmers of what is to come as Rogan takes Nevada home to meet Momma.
SEAL’s Honor by Megan Crane is the first novel in the romantic suspense series, Alaska Force. The promise of military men, an Alaskan setting and some romantic suspense had me diving into this SEAL’s Honor. The tale that unfolded offered romance, humor, character growth and plenty of suspense. It left me eager for more stories about the men who make up the special ops unit known as Alaska Force.
I tend to be an eclectic reader and often follow my moods. After several reviews from fellow bloggers, I began the School for Dukes series by Lenora Bell and dove headfirst into What a Difference a Duke Makes. I had the most splendid time with this hero and feisty heroine.
River Bodies by Karen Katchur is the first novel in the Northampton County mystery series. Multiple POVs, childhood flashbacks and a suspenseful buildup provided an entertaining mystery in Portland, Pennsylvania, a small river town that borders New Jersey, where neighbors keep their heads down and look the other way.
