   Please do yourself the favor of reading The Mistletoe Countessbefore plunging into The Cairo Curse. Getting to know Lord and Lady Astley from the beginning of their relationship will be a treat that will make the second book all the more delicious. Lady Astley dreams big and loves big. Being an avid reader of fiction, especially of detective stories, along with her impulsive nature, leads her into many an adventure. Her husband is one to embrace her enthusiastic approach to life rather than to squelch it with expectations of lady-like behavior. As I read this book, it seemed as if ..read more

In Spotlight and Shadow by Rachel Scott McDaniel - A Book Review

5d ago
   In preparing to write this review, I had to step back and take an unemotional look at the story, fearing that its having followed on the heels of two exceptional reads might cloud my opinion. Doing my best to be fair-minded, I would say that In Spotlight and Shadow is a fair read. I did enjoy the Vaudeville era timeline much more than the contemporary one. The characters felt more genuine and down-to-earth. The rich country music star in the contemporary storyline was a bit over done. The mystery of the earlier storyline had a Dashiell Hammett feel to it that was enjoyable. To use ..read more

Courage in the Shadows by Robin Patchen - A Book Review

   I have anxiously been awaiting Summer Lake's story in Robin Patchen's Coventry Saga series, and Courage in the Shadowsdid not disappoint. Lake had been very secretive in her previous appearances, but all of my questions about her were answered in this book, and what a story she has! Of course I don't want to over-share here, because you will want to discover those answers for yourself. Although the book is part of the Coventry Sagaseries, the cast of regulars make only cameo appearances, which works for Lake's adventures from Boston to Maine. The suspense and romance in this book ..read more

Yesterday's Tides by Roseanna M. White - A Book Review

   If a book was to be judged by the intensity of emotion it aroused in its reader, this book would, and should, receive the highest of accolades. Sometimes I had to pause in my reading just to reduce the level of angst the story created. It was difficult to not give in to the temptation to turn to the last couple of chapters to assure myself that everything worked out at the end and the characters got their well-deserved happily-ever-after. I would never steal from you the opportunity to feel all the feels that come with reading this book, so will say nothing further other than to g ..read more

Hearts of Steel by Elizabeth Camden - A Book Review

2w ago
   I absolutely love how all of the Elizabeth Camden books that I have read revolve around the solution to social issues in our country's history. Hearts of Steelfocuses on underhanded business practices that hurt small businesses and their employees, and the danger of monopolies. It is set in New York City in the early 1900s. The antagonist is a true character, Charles W. Morse who cornered the ice industry using tactics that closed businesses, and even caused the deaths of some children in orphanages and other sick people from heatstroke both in real life and in this story. Later i ..read more

    Dark of Night is Coble's second Annie Pederson novel, and I enjoyed it even more than the first. I felt more invested in the characters as Annie continues to work out things with her former fiance as well as deal with the lady who claims to be her little sister who was kidnapped at an early age, all while working on a missing persons case. The suspense is well-developed in each of the storylines. It is always wonderful to visit Rock Harbor and reconnect with the characters who reside there. I highly recommend this book and author to romantic suspense fans. I have been readin ..read more

Critical Threat by Lynette Eason - A Book Review

1M ago
   I had told myself that I was going to stop reading books about serial killers, but who can turn down books by Lynette Eason? Well, not me. This one is not as gruesome as some are. The suspense of trying to determine who the killer is, or isn’t, and trying to predict who the next victim might be kept me highly engaged as I grabbed opportunities to continue reading whenever possible. A key theme of this book, developed through the lives of the two main FBI agents, deals with taking responsibility for one’s own behavior and decisions, while not allowing others to make one feel respon ..read more

What I Would Tell You by Liz Tolsma - A Book Review

   Of the Liz Tolsma novels I have read, What I Would Tell Youis my favorite. I was unfamiliar with what took place in Greece leading up to and during World War II, so I found the story of Mathilda Nissim fascinating although tragic. Pairing it with the story of Tessa Payton in 2019, and sharing pages from both ladies' journals was an excellent way to engage readers even more deeply in Mathilda's story. I was grateful for the manner in which Tolsma cleared up Tessa's confusion, helping the character to realize that the God of the Jews and the God of the Christians is One. I highly re ..read more

The Rose and the Thistle by Laura Frantz - A Book Review

   I am sure the intensive research required by a novel of this quality was pure pleasure for author Laura Frantz as she visited France and Scotland, including Wedderburn Castle, the home of her Hume ancestors. The Rose and the Thistleincludes a great deal of Hume history combined with Frantz's flair for creating a wonderful historical romance. The story is set in the time leading up to and including the Jacobite uprising of 1715, a time when families were sometimes split by their loyalties. Lady Blythe Hedley's Jacobite father works to protect her from the repercussions of his polit ..read more

The Secret Society of Salzburg by Renee Ryan - A Book Review

1M ago
   This story moves back and forth along the timeline of 1934 to 1945. At first I found that confusing, but after further reading I was enthralled with how the author, Renee Ryan, used that to build tension and suspense as the reader develops a relationship with the two main characters and longs to discover the betrayer of one of them. The story honors the bravery of the men and women who took great risks to save the lives of many Jews leading up to and during World War II. It also showcases the importance of creative expression through the arts in our human experience. Most importan ..read more
