Review: ‘Hostile Intent’ (Danger Never Sleeps 4) by Lynette Eason

About The Book

Ava Jackson entered the military shortly after high school, but her mother’s illness has forced her to request an early discharge. She already lost her father while deployed, and there’s no way she’s going to let her mother die alone. But after a visit to the nursing facility where her mother lives, Ava is attacked walking back to her car. Fortunately, FBI Special Agent Caden Denning arrives in time to help fight off her attacker.

Caden reveals to Ava that she may hold the key to the murders of three families, and he needs her help before anyone else is harmed. The hits show a pattern, and clearly the killer has an agenda. But if Caden and Ava can’t discover what it is, Ava may be next on the hit list.

Bestselling author Lynette Eason concludes her latest suspense-filled series with a bang as secrets are revealed and the guilty are brought to justice.

Review: ‘To Write A Wrong’ (The Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency 2) by Jen Turano

About The Book

Miss Daphne Beekman is a mystery writer by day, inquiry agent by night. Known for her ability to puzzle out plots, she prefers working behind the scenes for the Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency, staying well away from danger. However, Daphne soon finds herself in the thick of an attempted murder case she’s determined to solve.

Mr. Herman Henderson is also a mystery writer, but unlike the dashing heroes he pens, he lives a quiet life, determined to avoid the fate of his adventurous parents, who perished on an expedition when he was a child. But when he experiences numerous attempts on his life, he seeks out the services of the eccentric Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency to uncover the culprit. All too soon, Herman finds himself stepping out of the safe haven of his world and into an adventure he never imagined.

As the list of suspects grows and sinister plots are directed Daphne’s way as well, Herman and Daphne must determine who they can trust and if they can risk the greatest adventure of all: love.

‘Murderers, I’m sure you’ll agree, are very proficient with lying.’

Oh goodness, do I ever love a Jen Turano novel! Every time one is published, I can’t wait to read it. You know why? Because that means I’m about to have a grand experience. I don’t know how she does it. Really I don’t. Her mind must be an amazing thing. Her wit is incredibly wonderful and this time I was laughing by the second page. There are many times during the reading of her books that I just burst into loud laughter and laugh more than a second or two. My husband just stares at me, while I say, ‘I’m reading another Jen Turano book.’

Back we go to the Bleeker Street Inquiry Agency to have Miss Daphne Beekman’s story. Daphne is a writer, don’t you know, albeit one who must adopt a male nom de plume. She solves crimes in the evenings, too. Well, she meets up with another mystery writer in this story, a very famous one like herself, Mr. Herman Henderson. He wants to hire the agency because it would seem someone is trying to kill him. And we’re off! What a wonderful, rip-roaring time to be had here. I always find myself, during the reading of on of Turano’s books, rereading passages over and over just for the simple pleasure of laughing my head off. I adore her work!

Review: ‘Beyond The Tides’ by Liz Johnson

About The Book:

When Meg Whitaker’s father decides to sell the family’s lobster-fishing business to her high school nemesis, she sets out to prove she should inherit it instead. Though she’s never had any interest in running the small fleet–or even getting on a boat due to her persistent seasickness–she can’t stand to see Oliver Ross take over. Not when he ruined her dreams for a science scholarship and an Ivy League education ten years ago.

Oliver isn’t proud of what he did back then. Angry and broken by his father walking out on his family, he lashed out at Meg–an innocent bystander. But owning a respected fishing fleet on Prince Edward Island is the opportunity of a lifetime, and he’s not about to walk away just because Meg wants him to.

Meg’s father has the perfect solution: Oliver and Meg must work the business together, and at the end of the season, he’ll decide who gets it. Along the way, they may discover that their stories are more similar than they thought . . . and their dreams aren’t what they expected.

Bestselling author Liz Johnson invites you back to Prince Edward Island for a brand-new series about family, forgiveness, and the kind of love that heals all wounds.

My Rating: 5 Stars!

‘Winning over Meg Whitaker was his challenge. He didn’t need her to like him. He just needed her to stop hating him.’

Liz Johnson begins a new series with this book and if this book is any indication, it’s going to be a great series! Meg Whitaker’s mother is ill and her dad decides to sell his Prince Edward Island lobster fishing business license. To the one man she cannot abide. The man who hurt her more than any other. The man she has held a grudge against for over ten years.

‘Yeah, he knew a thing or two about shields and armor and how they didn’t work.’

Oliver Ross has worked for Meg’s dad on the fishing boat for many years and jumps at the chance to buy the license. Meg’s parents have always believed in Oliver. Oliver’s life has not been a pleasant one and he has hidden from others the pain he has endured. Now Meg doesn’t want him to have the fishing license. She wants it herself, even though she hates fishing and has motion sickness.

This is a very good book. With a great spiritual theme here about grudges. They hurt. Both the one holding the grudge and the one the grudge is held against. And they never end well. Never. I was hooked here from the first page and and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I’ve been a fan of Johnson’s a long time and each book solidifies my decision to be a fan. I loved Oliver’s character so much. I loved Meg’s, too, and her parents and other secondary characters, but Oliver’s heart was such a wonderful thing. Honestly, the guy is a great book hero. I recommend this one so much.

My thanks to Revell Books for a copy of this book. I was not expected to leave a positive review and the opinion here is expressly my own.

Review: ‘Who You Are’ (Murphy Brothers) by Jennifer Rodewald

About The Book

An unusual arrangement brought them together. Their clashing personalities are likely to drive them apart. Is it remotely possible that love could take them both by surprise?

Brandon Murphy is stuck. He works alone every day, out in the woods, exactly as he wanted. Trouble is, he hadn’t counted on it becoming so…mundane. So when he receives an unusual request—to show up as the arranged fiancé of an heiress in trouble—he figures he may as well. After all, they’ll have six months to decide whether to go through with the marriage. It might just be the spark his life’s been missing.

And oh, are there sparks! Just not the sort he was hoping for.

Megan Alexander is livid. Not only has her father driven away the fiancé of her choosing, but her mother has written to a complete stranger, asking him to come and fill that now-vacant role. What modern woman would consider such an arrangement? Determined not to comply with the insane deal, Megan comes up with a plan of her own: drive the crazy man who agreed to such an idea away—preferably at a run.

From their first disastrous meeting, both Brandon and Megan are certain they will never get married. Ever. But Megan’s plans for her future rely on Daddy’s goodwill, so she needs to see the six months through. And Brandon gave his promise on that time frame; he’ll be a man of his word—even if it kills him.

Six months and they can walk away. Because there’s no way they’d ever consider the alternative…is there?

Who You are is book 6 in the Murphy Brothers Stories; Christian novels full of romance and redemption. Don’t miss this family of seven brothers as they navigate through life, faith, and love.

‘Were these the lives they were supposed to be living? Did either trust the goodness of God? Were they seeking a life that would glorify their Maker?’

Here we have the next to last Murphy Brothers story. Brandon Murphy receives a strange request from his mom, who has received it from a long time friend. Dare he accept? Not likely. Not his thing. But he feels God leading him that very way. And so Jennifer Rodewald leads us along on another Murphy Brothers tale, every bit as rich and full as the ones that went before. This is an amazing family. From the very first brother, I’ve been all in. It’s a wonderful thing to watch as they all have submitted fully to the will of God for their lives. Oh, it’s not been a bit easy for any of them or those they loved, but it’s a beautiful thing to watch. Rodewald always takes us on a journey that no only makes for a sound and totally enjoyable and blessing-filled read, but touches our own hearts with its profound spiritual themes. Well done!
