HARBOUR FALLS TOUR BANNER

Review:

If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for a good mystery….well the first two books in this series (because I see a third is in the works) intrigued me and left me wondering who did what and why!  All good elements of a mystery novel.  The first book, Harbour Falls sets the scene for Maddy and Adam, former classmates that have always had an interest in each other.  While Maddy was away becoming a famous author, Adam has been making his way in the computer industry.  During those years he was set to marry Chelsea, not because he loved her but because of blackmail.  However, she disappeared the day before their wedding and Adam was the prime suspect at the time.  Maddy writes mystery novels and wants to try her hand at a true crime book, but she didn’t count on reuniting with Adam and falling in love.  Maddy discovers during her research that not was all as it seemed and perhaps the police didn’t quite do their job.  There were a lot of twists and turns in the first book, Harbour Falls and I have started Willow Point and this one is going to be just as fascinating!

harbourfalls1

Synopsis:

Best-selling author Maddy Fitch, researching material for a new novel, returns to her hometown of Harbour Falls to investigate a disappearance that has haunted the tiny Maine coastal town for the past four years. Maddy soon discovers that the case has gone cold, but the prime suspect, Adam Ward, is hotter than ever. Now living on an isolated island, Maddy takes up residence near the sexy Mr. Ward’s home. As she begins to seek out answers, the mystery deepens, putting Maddy in jeopardy.
Lies, secrets, deceptions. Nothing is ever what it seems in Harbour Falls.

A steamy novel that immerses the reader in an intricate storyline that will keep them glued till the very last page.

First in a series. Romance/Mystery genre.

WillowPoint

Synopsis:

With the Harbour Falls Mystery solved, author Maddy Fitch hopes secrets and lies are behind her. But a cryptic letter from her former best friend would seem to indicate otherwise. Is the man Maddy fell in love with while solving the Harbour Falls Mystery, the gorgeous and rich Adam Ward, keeping a damning and potentially dangerous secret from her? Only the writer of the letter, Ami Hensley, knows for sure. But Maddy is hesitant to confront her, since the last time they saw one another Ami tried to kill her.
But if Maddy wants answers–ones that could potentially save Adam–then she must face her fears and visit her former friend. Unfortunately for Maddy, Ami is currently locked up in the creepiest place in Maine, an old gothic structure that houses the criminally insane, known simply as Willow Point.

Will this new mystery tear Maddy and Adam apart?

Who else is in on Adam’s secret?

And will Maddy find the answers before it’s too late?

Another heart-stopping page turner from the author of Harbour Falls. Willow Point promises to keep you on the edge of your seat.

2nd in A Harbour Falls Mystery series. Romance/Mystery genres

pink slips

Her widowed father did his best to raise his baby girl to be a strong-minded business woman. Then she found Tanner. Just when her world seemed perfect, everything turned upside down.
Following Tanner’s tragic death, Brooke joins a start-up company that is developing a cure for the disease that killed the love of her life. Just before the treatment is ready to market, the company is gobbled up by a giant conglomerate. She moves to the acquiring company as its youngest VP and becomes enamored with CEO Chase Allman—only to be betrayed by him.

Brooke rebounds again and sets out on a personal journey to discover what will truly make her happy. Sparks fly when she and Chase cross paths again in an unlikely way. Now, they need each other to find an abducted child and save thousands of people.

Amazon has the book for the bargain price of $2.99 (or borrow for free if you have a Prime account).  This book isn’t available on the Nook but his other two books are – The Bliss List and Bliss List Journal.

Review:

I thought it would be interesting to see how a guy would write a romance novel that would appeal to women.  I have to give him 4 paws for writing a witty story that while at times seemed more masculine, was filled with what you find in a normal relationship….miscommunication and misunderstandings!  I also found Brooke’s story to be very well written and her grief for her husband was very realistic.  Chase is a strong character but also has some secrets in his past that add to those misunderstandings!  But Brooke learning to live and love again was well timed.

corpse with golden nose

 

Synopsis:

A heartfelt plea to look into the death of a world-famous vintner goes hand in hand with the opportunity to attend an exclusive gourmet event in British Columbia’s stunning wine country. How can overindulgent foodie and criminologist Cait Morgan resist?

Sure that the award-winning owner of a family-run vineyard was murdered, Cait shares her findings with Bud Anderson, a retired homicide cop. But he is convinced that the woman took her own life, whatever her grief-stricken sister might say. That is, until death strikes once again, in the neat rows of grapevines that clamber up the banks of magnificent Lake Okanagan.

Uncovering obsessions that might have fueled murderous thoughts among the victim’s wacky neighbors is a start, but as Cait unravels the clues, she realizes that more lives are at stake. Can she think, and act, quickly enough to thwart the killer?

The Corpse with the Golden Nose is the second book in the Cait Morgan Mysteries, a classic whodunit series featuring the eccentric Professor Cait Morgan.

Review:

This is the second book in the series and like all series, I highly recommend starting with the first book because there are always references and you feel like you are missing out on something by not knowing what happened previously!   At first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book, it seemed hard to get in because I wasn’t connecting with the characters.  But I kept reading and as I went along I grew to like the characters and their many quirks.  I found it fascinating that Cait’s profession is as a criminologist and her insight into the “wacky” neighbors…and trust me, they are wacky!  I think that is what was the turning point, meeting these characters and trying to figure out who killed Annette and why was Ellen so sure someone killed her?

There are some GREAT twists in this story and it was quite surprising to find out whodunit because I know I didn’t figure it out!  We give this book 4 paws.  I don’t know that I would say it is a cozy but not as heavy as the other mysteries.

Book Description:

Sometimes, even the best-laid plans can unravel.

It’s spring break, and Tamara Winters would rather stay on campus and read romance novels than flaunt her size-fourteen body on a beach. But her best friend, Ronni, has other ideas. Against her wishes, Tamara is whisked away to picturesque Maverick Bay, where she’s wrangled into waiting tables with Ronni at the Shore Shack for its busy week leading to Maverick’s Surf Invitational. There she meets fellow schoolmate Xavier Solomon, the Invitational’s organizer and campus womanizer by reputation. From the moment Tamara sees him emerging from the waves like a hero in of one of her romance novels, all she wants to do is run away from the feelings he inspires in her.

Little does she know Xavier has been watching her for weeks now. In fact, after failed attempts at asking her out on campus, he’s concocted a crazy plan: fabricating romantic situations straight out of her favorite books. Xavier quickly realizes that if Tamara gets a whiff of his designs, he might as well spell CREEPER across his forehead. Yet as they grow closer, he’s convinced it’s a risk worth taking. What he hasn’t planned on, of course, is his drug-addicted, alcoholic stepbrother, who decides to join the fun and put a wrench in Xavier’s scheme.

Spring break is proving hotter than Tamara expected. Will her romance novels be able to compete?

Review:

This was such a fun read!  Tamara is a self-proclaimed bookworm (reading up to 3 books per day!  boy wish I had that kind of time) but life is passing her by because she can’t see past the pages in the book because of a trauma when she was younger.  However, she goes on Spring Break with her roommate Ronnie and is treated to a whole new world that has her realizing that maybe all this time spent wrapped in books isn’t such a good thing.  Of course this is all a set up by Xavier because he wanted to get to know her and previous efforts weren’t working.

I liked how the story went back and forth between Tamara and Xavier’s view points.  You could see how she was feeling and what she was thinking in different situations.  The same goes for Xavier.  Plus I think it also gives the reader more of an insight into the characters.  I also liked that Tamara is a curvy female and a size 14.  Not all women are thin but they do find love no matter their body size.

We give this 4 paws and if you are looking for a good beach read, pick this book up!  Doesn’t hurt that they spend lots of time on a beach because of a surfing invitational!

A few months back I highlighted a book that author Shawna Seed sent me to read and review called Identity.  I finally worked my way (a little bit) through that massive TBR pile and got to this book.  Wish I had gotten to it sooner!

identityshawnaseed

Synopsis:

Sharlah Webb thinks her luck is finally turning, until her boyfriend, Brian, is jailed on drug charges. Now a hurricane is bearing down, she’s broke, and Brian’s secrets have put them both in danger. Can she trust Brian? The police? Sharlah begins her own search for answers, launching a mystery that will take years to unravel. Identity: A novel of suspense, love and finding your true self.

Review:

I enjoyed this book a lot!  You get to see Brian and Sharlah’s story from teens (17+) to later in life.  The story does have something of an abrupt ending and it leaves you wondering how some things turn out. That can either be a really good thing or a bad thing, guess it depends on how you like the story to end. I think it does leave it open for a sequel should the author choose to follow up and let us know how certain situations were resolved.  I found myself rooting for different characters and hoping that all would turn out well.  You don’t really know until the end how things will truly play out which I think is a good thing.  I couldn’t guess how the book would turn out.

There were a few editing type things that could have made the flow better. At one point the story switches from Sharlah’s point of view to Brian’s. At this point it is 4 years later but it takes a few pages to realize that it is 4 years later. Then it switches to another person’s point of view and that is about 10 years later. Also the chapters were really really long.

Aside from those 2 things, I thought the book was written very well and I was able to feel the emotions of the characters.  We give it 4 paws.

desire by design

 

Synopsis:

He stole her job, and now she’s stealing his heart.

Eve Doucette finally almost has it all. She’s free from her mistake of an ex-husband and just landed her dream job: project manager for a new City Hall and drafter of the final design. That is, until a handsome architect sweeps into town to commandeer her blueprints.

Famous architect Matt Brison is unsatisfied with his mundane life in Toronto. So when the mayor of Halifax asks him to spearhead his City Hall project, Matt jumps at the opportunity. There’s just one problem: the feisty and beautiful project lead, Eve, who isn’t exactly thrilled about her new “coworker” hijacking her design.

But when the sparks begin to fly, they both find themselves falling for the colleague they shouldn’t want. And before they know it, their already shaky foundation might come crumbling down…

Review:

This was definitely a fun read!  There is tension right from the beginning between Eve and Matt….is it because of the job or something more?  Matt definitely took advantage of some situations to get closer to Eve, but could you blame him?!  He’s a guy and attracted to her, why wouldn’t he try and get closer?  There are a lot of funny moments that will have you laughing out loud.

Over all we give this 4 paws and if you are in the mood for a light hearted romance take a look at Design by Desire

About the author:

from her website

paula altenburgI’d like to be able to say I always wanted to be a writer, but the truth is I thought it looked like a lot of hard work. Life, however, sometimes leads us down paths we never intended to take.

From the very beginning, my parents encouraged my love of books. When a Grade One teacher suggested I wrote too many “thrillers,” my mother, an English teacher, said I could write – and read – whatever I wanted. My high school English teachers later backed her up on that. In university, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Anthropology. At the time it was a whim, but it’s amazing how much that little piece of paper has benefited me over the years.Researching the history of civilizations has led to many intriguing world building possibilities.

When my children were babies and money was tight, my mother, grandmother, and husband bought me an electric typewriter for my birthday because they knew I was bored and wanted me to be happy. My mother became my very first critique partner, willingly reading pages and pages of manuscripts no one should ever have to suffer through. She researched markets for me, and introduced me to a journalist friend, who in turn introduced me to the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia. My brother and my brother-in-law introduced me to Thieves’ World, David Eddings, and Piers Anthony. My sister gave me my first computer.

My grandmothers believed if something’s too hard, you aren’t working hard enough. My brother and sisters have all successfully followed their dreams, and my husband and two sons offer me proof every day that hard work is something to be embraced, not avoided. With these people behind me, how could I possibly stray from a path on which life seems to have planted them as guardrails?

Last month, author Geoffrey Gluckman was a Guest Blogger here to tell us about his latest work, Murder of Sex.  I finally was able to work through my backlog and get to his book (too many books, not enough time).

 

murderofsex

Synopsis:

An incendiary tale of lust, passion, love, betrayal, and loss. Intimate sexual relationships may never be the same.

When Dr. Josh Flagon, a professor of literature at a moderate sized liberal arts Nevada university, is drawn to an irresistible co-ed, Rebecca Reaper, little does he know it will take him on a lustful, passionate, life-changing ride. It will also jeopardize all that he values—his career—and all that he seeks—freedom.

While teaching classes and writing, Flagon uncovers a secret that boils beneath his cool, scholarly veneer. Rebecca, a brilliant student and sensual siren, reveals that mystery and much more to the professor through their passionate tryst. But at what price?

While the couple vacation on a secluded Hawaiian Island, a mysterious incident occurs that further challenges their relationship. From that point, Flagon’s life spirals out of control until be-friended by the unlikely, yet ever-wise Puerto Rican gangster, Jorge Luis Juarez.

In a haunting tale that weaves the literary with street smarts, passion with desolation, imprisonment with emancipation, and the desires of mankind with its origins, there thrives something to savor for every adult who has entered the intimate relationship arena and sought deeper answers to life’s questions.

This is one story that will make some gasp, many others smile, and take you into realms beyond.

Review:

I’m not sure what I was expecting but this was a pretty intense book.  I did have to read the first chapter twice to try and figure out what he was trying to impart to the reader.  I ended up giving up and moved on.  Once I did that and got into the heart of the story it picked up and I enjoyed it more.  The story reminded me a little bit of Fatal Attraction – the obsession and the jealousy.   As I was reading I kept wondering why Josh was in jail.  What did he do that landed him there and why was he getting out (besides for good behavior)?  The characters are gripping and you aren’t sure who to like and who to hate.

There are quite a few F* bombs, but in most places it was appropriate (jail scenes) and it seemed to fit in other situations, but still a heavy use of the word. Also quite a few sex scenes but it fit in with the storyline. (just a heads up if you don’t like that sort of thing in your book)

The book is less than 200 pages but it sure does pack a lot into them!

We give it 4 paws and hope you’ll give this book a chance next time you are looking for a suspenseful book.

voodoo for two

Synopsis:

Be careful what you wish for…

Determined to marry the most eligible bachelor in the parish to save her family, Lucie LeBieu turns a “love bug” loose to cast its Voodoo spell. What she doesn’t count on is hitting two targets—the golden boy congressional candidate, and her Cajun-hot ex. To set things right, she must undo the spell before she falls into bed—-and back in love—with a certain down and dirty heartbreakin’ cop.

Undercover investigator Ben Boyette is back in Louisiana on special assignment when he runs across his old flame, brewing up trouble as usual. But when hometown threats turn deadly, Lucie’s life is on the line. Determined to protect both her and his politician assignment from falling victim to a murderer, Ben finds that he’s the one who’s falling hard…for the irresistible bayou temptress.

Review:

This is the second in the Cajun Magic series.  The book is set in the same small town with some of the same characters as the first book (which would be expected!).  The main characters from book one have a very minor role and are really just mentioned versus playing a part in this story line.  This book has romance and mystery all rolled up into one which makes for an exciting read.  Lucie thinks that her ticket out of town is the congressional candidate, but her ex-beau Ben has other thoughts.  Lucie thinks that the answer is a love spell but it goes awry since her voodoo skills are not up to her Grandmother’s!

I enjoyed the book and can’t wait to read the third one to see who is features in that book.  We give this 4 paws and if you are looking for a fun read, then check this book out!

Threatened by his persistence, Arnauld plays dirty – only to spark an uprising at the studio that unleashes the sort of havoc only a building full of frustrated animators can create. While Nathan pulls out all the stops to win his B-girl, Brooke has to choose. Should she pursue the sparkling career that has taken her years to build…or follow her heart?

Trailer:

Review:

I thought this was a fun romance novel. I have always loved animation (of all types) so this book was very enjoyable for me!  I loved the drawings in the book.  I could tell the characters were younger (in their 20’s) because I could see their immaturity through their personalities and actions.  I felt like this made it more real because a lot of people that age aren’t quite sure of who they are yet.  I liked that the “pretty” girl fell for the geek, even though once cleaned up he wasn’t quite so geeky and more hunky!  There are some “hot” romance scenes, but nothing you wouldn’t find in any other book!

We enjoyed this and give it 4 paws.

Synopsis:

Pen Holloway’s done with men—in real life. Guys in game are so much less drama. But when her partner from Heroes of Fallen Gods invites her to the convention of the year, she panics. What if he’s another jerk? What if he’s not?

Cal Burrows is living his dream of being a spy. One of TRAIT’s misfit spies, but still a spy. It’s the perfect job… until an arms dealer with a taste for blood invades his not-so-secret geek haven. All Cal wanted from ConDamned was to meet his on-line girl. Now, with the threat of mass murder looming, he’s forced to choose between keeping his mission a secret and protecting the girl of his dreams.

Live. Death. Love. Let the games begin…

Review:

This is not a long book, I was amazed at how fast I read through the story, but don’t let that fool you…This book was action packed, with some hot romance and even a little something for the gaming enthusiasts!  I’ve never been to any sort of gaming convention but I hear they can be quite interesting.  Pen doesn’t have a lot of faith in guys and Cal has an “anger” control issue.  I’m not sure if that is what it really is, but make him mad and he can’t see outside eliminating the person that made him mad!

We give it 4 paws and hope you like it too!
