    Cork O’Connor is contacted by Willie Raye to help find his daughter, Shiloh, who’s disappeared. She’s a famous Country & Western singer who apparently has chosen to remove herself into the Quetico-Superior Wilderness for some self reflection. The Feds have also inserted themselves into the search because they believe she now remembers information about her mother’s murder 13-years ago. Unfortunately, there are other dark forces at play as others are out to find and kill her.   As with the first story, the setting is an important element of the story and Indian lore is featured prominently in every aspect of the plot. The complexity of the boundary waters (between the Minnesota and Canadian borders) added to the mystery and sense of isolation. […]

    Cara Lindstrom is in the wind and Matt Roarke has taken leave from the FBI for awhile as he tries to get his head straight. But, he decides to start from her beginning to seek answers and it leads him to the town where she was assigned to her first group home. There is definitely something off in that place and Roarke makes it his mission to uncover the truth.   I loved how this story was told almost as much as the story itself. Roarke’s investigation is chronicled in the present as Cara’s is real time when she was 14-years old, fresh out of California’s dreadful Youth Authority. The contrast was fascinating as the two experiences were paralleled and we learn so […]

    Tiffany Edwards is a 26-year old mother of three children under the age of seven and is separated from her abusive husband. Until recently, she lived in a dilapidated trailer in an equally squalid park but managed to make some very good friends. When her brother-in-law discovers her, Blake Edwards offers her money to disappear. Hurt and desperate, she takes the money and moves on. They have a chance meeting one year later when she shows up at Annie & Dylan’s Christmas party and it’s a game changer.   I’ve been hungering for this story since the last book ended on that Christmas party cliffhanger and it was definitely worth waiting for. Tiffany may have been down but she’s definitely not out. I […]

    When beer and wine saleswoman Evelyn Benedict reluctantly agreed to allow brewery owner Austin Fitzgerald to do a ride-along with her to visit her territory, she had no idea how her life would be permanently altered. She’s from blue collar roots and he’s a trust fund baby but they fit almost perfectly. It’s the “almost” though that might just do them in. Especially when his best friend, Ross Hoffman enters the relationship.   Despite Evelyn’s childish reactions throughout the story, I really liked her. Those reactions were her coping mechanisms (scream and run), developed as a result of a tough childhood. She’s strong, smart and resourceful. I liked how she lived life in the moment, full out. Austin was equally intriguing, motivated to […]

    It’s been six months since Meredith (Merrie) Jane broke up with Liam Westbrook after a five-year relationship. She’s clear that it’s really over this time and the first step in moving on is attending her cousin Daphne’s Valentines Day party for singles. When she runs in to Liam’s brother, Hunter at the party, things move in a direction she never saw coming.   I’ve read the first book in the Pleasure Cove series (this is also the prequel for that series), which is Liam’s story, and never thought these two could redeem themselves. Boy, was I so wrong. You’d think it would be impossible for a brother (Hunter) who takes up with his sibling’s ex to dig out of this kind of hole […]

    Wow! Two romances in one and the action is riveting.   Beatrice is in labor and Cal agreed to her plan to have the baby at home. No sooner than they and Hunter arrive home from Chicago, trouble shows up in a big and awful way. With all agents assigned and out of town, it all falls in the hands of Connor McKenzie, the more than able Shadow Force International (SFI) office manager, and Sabrina Merinos, one of their pilots.   I loved this story. Seeing Beatrice tamed by labor was an experience in itself. The assault on her and Cal’s home was chilling and everything that happened going forward was breathtaking. I’d always wondered about Connor and in just a few pages, […]

    In just one day, Annie Anderson’s life turned sideways and then completely upside down when she comes home early, finding her boyfriend in bed with another woman. If that wasn’t sad enough, she ends up losing her new job on the first day. And yet it gets worse. When she goes away for a much needed excursion to a fabulous island with her friends, who shows up there but the cheating ex and his gorgeous arm candy.   As bad as Annie’s day from hell was, it was related in such a way that I couldn’t stop laughing. While my heart broke for her, Annie’s story is so cleverly written that I also found the humor in the situation. The escapades during the […]
