Widowed librarian Alicia Fairmont needs answers…
After her husband is killed in a hit and run accident, Alicia travels
upstate to his hometown of Cobble Cove, New York, hoping to locate
his estranged family and shed light on his mysterious past.
Anticipating staying only a weekend, her visit is extended when she
accepts a job at the town’s library.
Secrets stretch decades into the past… Assisted by handsome newspaper
publisher and aspiring novelist, John McKinney, Alicia discovers a
connection between her absent in-laws and a secret John’s father
has kept for over sixty years. But her investigation is interrupted
when she receives word her house has burned and arson is suspected,
sending her rushing back to Long Island, accompanied by John.
Back in Cobble Cove, cryptic clues are uncovered…
When Alicia returns, she finds a strange diary, confiscated letters, and a
digital audio device containing a recording made the day her husband
was killed. Anonymous notes warn Alicia to leave town, but she can’t
turn her back on the mystery—or her attraction to John. As the
pieces begin to fall into place, evidence points to John’s
involvement in her husband’s accident.
The past and present threaten to collide, and Alicia confronts her fears…
Has she fallen in love with her husband’s killer?

Librarian Alicia McKinney has put the past behind her…
Two years ago, Alicia discovered both a terrible truth and lasting love
with John McKinney in the small town of Cobble Cove, New York. Now a
busy mother of twin babies and co-author of a mystery series, Alicia
couldn’t be happier.
Alicia’s contentment and safety are challenged…
Walking home alone from the library, Alicia senses someone following her, and
on more than one occasion, she believes she is being watched. Does
she have a stalker? When the local gift shop is burglarized, the
troubling event causes unrest among Alicia and the residents of the
quiet town.

John and Alicia receive an offer they can’t refuse…
When John’s sister offers to babysit while she and John take a
much-needed vacation in New York City, Alicia is reluctant to leave
her children because of the disturbances in Cobble Cove. John assures
her the town is safe in the hands of Sheriff-elect Ramsay. Although
Alicia’s experience with and dislike of the former Long Island
detective don’t alleviate her concern, she and John take their
trip.
Alicia faces her worst nightmare…
The McKinneys’ vacation is cut short when they learn their babies have
been kidnapped and John’s sister shot. Alicia and John’s
situation puts them between a rock and a hard place when the main
suspect is found dead before the ransom is paid. In order to save
their children, the McKinneys race against the clock to solve a
mystery more puzzling than those found in their own books. Can they
do it before time runs out?

A NECESSARY LIE
by Lucy Farago
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Pub Date: 7/27/2017
*
*
The Investigative Collection Unit is
one of the world’s most renowned agencies, solving cases with—or
without—the law on its side. And the Unit’s men are special
agents in more ways than one, with secrets that can make or break
them—and the hearts of those who fall for them . . .
He’s known only as Cowboy. A
successful rodeo star with a string of women behind him, the ICU has
given him a chance to stay put instead of constantly running
away—from the past, from love, from the blood on his hands. And
he’s not going to screw that up, even if it means going back home
to Texas to investigate the disappearance of the woman who made him
start running in the first place . . .
The political exposé of a popular
senator should have been Grace Irvine’s story, but she thought it
would be good for her best friend Jessie’s career. Now, Jessie is
missing and Grace will do anything to find her. But her path keeps
crossing with a mysterious and charismatic cowboy who has his own
reasons for finding Jessie. And as intrigue draws Grace and Cowboy
deeper into danger, passion starts to play by its own rules—making
promises it might not be able to keep . . .

Lucy Farago knows there is nothing like
a happy sigh at the end of a good book. With the encouragement of her
loving husband, she wrote her first manuscript. An unpublished
historical, it sits in a file on her computer, there to remind her
how much fun she had learning the craft and becoming part of an
industry whose books make you believe anything is possible. A big fan
of Agatha Christie, she set out to write her first romantic suspense
novel. Thrilled to be a published author, Lucy also teaches yoga,
enjoys cooking, and saying what other people are thinking. In her
fantasy world, her beautiful Siberian husky, Loki, doesn’t shed and
her three kids clean up after themselves . Alas, that fantasy will
never see fruition.

The Mood for Trouble by Wynter S.K – Book Tour + #Giveaway

02/02/17

The Mood for Trouble
Agent Provocateur Book 1
by Wynter S.K
Genre: Romantic Suspense
It takes a special blend of insanity and courage to answer the call to
become a United States federal agent. CIA officer Charlotte “Chase”
Moreno is equal parts crazy and brave, which, when combined properly,
creates one kick-ass, dead-shot, often reckless spy.
Chase and sexy, roughneck DEA Special Agent Jonathan Harper are forced to
work together to bring down an international drug and weapons
syndicate, and there’s one problem: they can’t stand each other.
But when he comes to her rescue on their first mission together, it’s
impossible for either of them to deny their growing feelings, or the
heat that’s boiling just beneath the surface between them. But one
sizzling, unforgettable night between them in Sin City might have
just changed the tide–forever.
mt-excerpt

I stepped into the elevator, taking a silent breath in through my nose, deep to the bottom of my lungs. Her warm citrusy scent immediately filled my nose, filled the entire elevator. I slipped a finger into the open collar of my shirt and tugged. It was unnecessary and pointless, but reflexive. I couldn’t breathe.

Chase cleared her throat, staring at the screen above the button panel as it counted down the floors to the lobby. I glanced over at her. Her nervousness was evident in every line of her, from the rigid hold of her shoulders to the tight grip on her clutch purse. The hot tension in the tiny space that made my blood roar in my ears and my heart sledgehammer against my ribs was palpable, and she was feeling it too. I knew she was.

Suddenly, she turned her head, her eyes instantly finding mine and holding them. The roar in my ears became deafening in my head as my mouth flooded with saliva, my hands clenching into fists inside pockets.

One more second, and I will throw her against that wall.

As if she could read my mind, her pupils dilated and her mouth opened. I could hear, loud and clear, the shaky exhale of a deep breath between those luscious lips of hers.

As if on autopilot, one of my hands slipped from my pocket as I turned to face her head on. A soft growl that rumbled deep in my chest took even me by surprise as I stepped nearer.

“Harper,” she whispered.

The elevator pinged as it reached the lobby. The doors slid smoothly apart.

Bloody fucking hell. I stood back, clenching my jaw, letting her walk out before me, as I took another deep breath. I felt like I’d just been possessed by some powerful, unseen force that had been on the cusp of turning me into a slavering beast that could only be sated by ravishing insanely beautiful women.

I stared at Chase’s back as I followed her. The back of the dress was several rows of wide, light pink straps from the bottom of her shoulder blades to her waist, offering flashes of smooth, tanned skin between each strap.

Just one insanely beautiful woman…

 

Wynter S.K. is her name, and razor-sharp romance is her game. She considers
herself a pioneer of the notion that crème brûlée is a good source
of calcium, and has the uncanny ability to explain to you, in detail,
why wine is basically salad. She’s turned vocal novelizations of
her favorite TV shows (Supernatural, anyone?) into a drinking game,
and frequently laughs herself into asthma attacks.
She’s mom to two furry kids, the Pushy Pomeranian and the Contemptuous Cat.
Oh, and you know those idealized, Alpha male, “book boyfriend”
types we all love that are super tough and sweet and hot, all in one
unfair and unrealistic package? Yeah, she’s married to one. He’s
a cop and a U.S. Army soldier, and after over a dozen years together,
he still makes her heart go ka-thump.
Wynter S.K. is a romantic suspense writer, with a special emphasis on
strong, heart-of-gold, gruff Alpha males and butt-kicking heroines—no
damsels in distress over here! Her favorite pairings are two souls
drawn together under crazy circumstances and recognize their soul’s
counterpart in the other. Mutual healing, painful growth, and of
course, lots of red-hot romps.
Wynter lives for the happily-ever-after, but if, and only if, it follows a
hard-wrought battle. Wynter loves to (figuratively, of course) stab
readers in the heart before making it all better again, so all you
have to do is trust her to tell you a good story, and strap yourself
in—it’s going to be one hell of a ride.

Review of Beyond the Eyes by Rebekkah Ford

02/01/17

Beyond the Eyes by Rebekkah Ford
Beyond the Eyes (Beyond the Eyes #1)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Paige is a teenager who feels rejected by her mother who works away from home. Her father is dead, leaving her lonely and vulnerable. She has two close friends, Tree and Cassie, who she hides an unbelievable secret from. She falls hard for Nathan a mysterious stranger and finds out the world around her, is not what it seems. Her life has changed and will never be the same again.

This is the first book I have read from Ms Ford and I wasn’t disappointed. I really enjoyed the story which is a good mix of Paranormal and romance. It is a YA book but it is also suitable for adults. It is gripping from start to finish and takes you on a journey of love and adventure, leaving you wanting more. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

The Curse of the Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones

The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson, #10)The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Curse of the Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones

Yet another brilliant book from the grave series. Ms Jones manages to bring the sharp, witty, attitude, of Charley Davidson, to life with this fun filled, action packed, instalment.
I don’t want to spoil anything for those who haven’t yet read it, but secrets are revealed and character backgrounds are explained. The plot thickens as Charley and Reyes protect the life of their daughter Beep, while solving a murder investigation. I can’t wait for the next book.
