Review of Deception by Patricia Bradley


Deception
 is the 4th book in the Natchez Trace Park Rangers Series. Bradley has written a spell-binding book that the reader can't put down! With twists and turns right up to the end, the author easily captures the attention of the reader all the way through. This book can be read as a stand-alone even though it is part of a series. Bradley masterfully weaves another great suspense novel to round out this series. With a touch of romance and a lot of suspense, it's the perfect combination in a book.

Review of Critical Alliance by Elizabeth Goddard


Critical Alliance
 is the 3rd book in the Rocky Mountain Courage series. This can be read as a stand alone novel even though it is in a series (but I would highly recommend reading the first two because they are just as good!).  Goddard skillfully blends suspense and romance together as well as mystery and intrigue. She takes you on a journey with the characters as they are on a race against time in finding out who Nebulous 2.0 is (read the book to find out who this is!). This is a book you will not want to put down all the way to the end!

Elysium Tide by James R. Hannibal

Elysium Tide is a fast paced read that Hannibal takes you on! With characters who you're cheering for and ones you don't really like, you keep reading to find out what in the world is going to happen. He is a master craftsman when it comes to writing and snags the readers attention right from the beginning. This book was the perfect pace, weaving in mystery, and a touch of humor where the reader just does not want to put it down. Hannibal also mixes the Hawaiian culture in as well which was very interesting to learn about.

Review of Where the Road Bends by Rachel Fordham


Where the Road Bends
 is a story of the circumstantial meeting of two people who's paths drastically change after they part. Fordham writes a sweet story of redemption, love and learning how to forgive and be forgiven. With characters who you feel could be your friends to the time stamp of the 1880's, this novel takes you back in time where your land was your lively hood and your community was essential.  A tender story where the reader is drawn in on a journey with the characters and you find yourself hoping it all works out for them.

Review of Fatal Code by Natalie Walters

Natalie has yet again written a nail biter book that keeps you up in to the wee hours of the night turning pages to find out what happens next. This is book 2 in the SNAP Agency series but can be read as a stand alone book. This storyline is a bit complex as the subject is about nuclear energy but if followed right, it will make sense! With different story lines converging, this book keeps the reader interested throughout the entirety.

The Master Craftsman by Kelli Stuart

Ava Laine is plodding along in life until her world shifts with one phone call. Her treasure-hunter estranged father is dying and wants to reconnect with her. With his help from his bed, Ava begins the journey across the world looking for a famed egg tied to the Russian Romanov family who reigned in the 1920's. 

Stuart writes an interesting historical fiction that any history buff would enjoy. Adventure, a dual story line toggling back and forth between present and past, eye opening realizations, new formed friendships and forgiveness are some topic the reader will come in contact with as they journey through this book. As you read you'll be swept back in time to the 1920's and then whisked to present day. Stuart has a fresh angle on a story that keeps the reader engaged with each page that is turned.

Review of Malicious Intent by Lynn H. Blackburn


Dr. Ivy Collins loves her job and the company she built from the ground up. But someone wants it too and will stop at nothing to get it. Secret Service Agent Gil Dixon is thrown back in to Ivy's life after 15 years apart and is now doing everything he can to keep her alive while he and his team race against time to find who's after Ivy.

This is the 2nd book in the Defend and Protect Series by Blackburn. This fast paced action packed book will keep you guessing as to who's the criminal mastermind. Reading the first book is helpful, but not needed to understand this story line. There are also characters from Blackburn's series Dive Team Investigations who make an appearance in this book as well. I love how characters are crossed over from other books and woven into the story line. This is a great suspense thriller that will keep you up late in the night to race to the last page.

Review of Life Flight by Lynette Eason

Penny Carlton loves her job as an EMS pilot. Her skills are pushed to the edge when she has to make an emergency landing with a critical patient on board in the middle of a storm. Along with being a pilot, she also finds herself needing to stay alive from a killer. Teaming up with FBI agent Holt Satterfield, they have to work together to find who is after them and put this killer behind bars. 

This is Eason's first book in the Extreme Measures series. The thrilling pace of this story keeps the reader engaged and turning each page. With a story line that keeps moving and layers being built on as the story progresses culminates in a fantastic ending! Eason shows her experience in writing in this first book and does a great job once again pulling the reader in to her workmanship. Filled with suspense, some romance and an all around great story line, this book will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Review of The Girl Who Could Breathe Under Water by Erin Bartels

Kendra Brennan has hidden away in her grandfather's cabin to try and write her next book. But shadows of her previous book haunt her and how it affected her readers, one in particular. Kendra finds herself entering those shadows with the help of a new friend and the re-entrance of old friends.

This stand-alone novel peels back the layers of the main character and how her past has shaped her present. And how she's determined to change her future. This is such a raw, gracefully written book that cuts at the heart and then sews it back together with loving thread to make something that is still recognizable but also new. Bartels has written a fantastic story that captures the reader and takes him/her on a journey that you least expect. Such depth is woven through this story line and as the reader, you can tell the author has taken great care in the characters and their stories.

Lights Out by Natalie Walters

Lights Out is a fast paced, action paced thriller that takes the reader in to the inner workings of the CIA. This is the first book in the SNAP Agency series by Natalie Walters. Walters does an outstanding job of creating a story that keeps the reader engulfed with the passing of each page. The suspense keeps the reader engaged right up until the end. With threads of trust and forgiveness, action and suspense woven through the storyline, this read is the complete package. Walters delivers a fantastic story to set up this series and I look forward to reading the 2nd book!
