n the darkest storm...

Nick, Logan, and Zane Cutter are a tightknit, unstoppable force in the family treasure-hunting business. Now that half-brother Jonah has arrived at the scene, he’s got a lot to prove—and a powerful enemy who wants to stop him dead in his tracks.

Love will find a way....

A perilous sea journey. A bitter nemesis. A woman whose spectacular beauty and talents are to die for…Over and over, Jonah will be tested. Is he worthy of carrying the Cutter name? With his eyes on the prize, Jonah will fight with all his heart. But desire often comes with a price. .

 

The Cutter Cay series  so far has been about the three Cutter brothers. Now, we learn about Jonah, the previously unknown half-brother.  He actually had more of his parent’s time and attention growing up than the original brothers. But he hasn’t had the wealth or fame of the family.  I was very curious to learn more about him and how his newly found brothers would get along.

Stormchaser is my favorite book so far. In addition to the suspense of the salvage projects, this one adds a historic sort of archaeological project, which to a great extent salvage is as well. There is deception in the crew (not completely unusual) and some high-tech or paranormal aspects of the project.

As with the rest of the series, I still think the lust turns into sex and a relationship rather fast. Jonah has a boat now and seems comfortable with his crew. The salvage itself brings out the killers this time which seems much more realistic than the personal attacks. Jonah is a nice guy. Callista is well educated, had a horrid childhood, and grew up living next door to the Case family. She comes to the crew with her secrets, planning to betray Jonah.

Despite difficulties, Jonah and Callista become a couple. The book ends a bit abruptly so I am excited to see how it works out in Hurricane, which is out next month. It features the enemy of the Cutter family, Rydell Case.  The review will be April 5th.

Books in the series (in order) are:

Riptide

  It’s been almost a year since John Devlin walked away from Amelia Gray to see to his ailing grandfather and then cutoff all communication. Amelia is nursing a broken heart and has accepted a restoration assignment in Ascension, South Carolina to get her out of Charleston for a few months. One day while working in the Seven Gates Cemetery, she is “called” into the adjacent forest and discovers a circled of twelve mortsafes and sees a pair of hands gripping the grates. It’s the body of a young woman and it’s recent. Detective Lucien Kendrick is assigned to the case and he and Amelia have an immediate connection…one she’s not sure is kindred, lust or something else.   I’d never heard of a mortsafe […]

Excerpt   Quinn had taken the floor for exactly the reasons she’d said, in addition to the knowledge that however little she liked to think it mattered, Marcus was ten years older than she was. And he was a secret stress case who carried all his tension in his back and shoul- ders. She should know, since she’d nearly sprained her thumbs trying to dig the knots out during a massage that had started out sexy and turned into a to-the-death battle between Quinn and the long muscles lining Marcus’s spine. Marcus didn’t need to screw up his back by lying on the floor for eight hours, was her point. Not that she would ever say that to him. She didn’t have a death wish. […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

5 Favorite Scenes: BELLE CHASSE by Suzanne Johnson

5 Favorite Scenes: BELLE CHASSE by Suzanne Johnson

Posted December 2, 2016 by Jennifer in Blog Tour, Giveaway | 4 Comments

  5 Favorite Scenes: BELLE CHASSE   Scenes are hard-working things. They all serve a function in a novel: to move the story along from one point to the next. They are the building blocks upon which any work of fiction is created. If they don’t do their job properly, the story stalls or heads off in the wrong direction. They have to be herded like sheep. But like any flock of sheep, some scenes are the favorites of the shepherd—or border collie, or novelist, in this case. Here are five of my favorites from BELLE CHASSE (sans spoilers), in no particular order. 1) Surgery by Dr. Strangepirate. Heroine DJ has a bullet in her thigh that needs removing. There is no anesthesia. There is […]
