                The Sharon McCone series is a long running mystery series. I have read them all; The Color of Fear is number 32. It began in 1977. The books are set in current day so technology and other aspects have changed along with our world over the years. The mysteries are smart with many, well-defined characters. I loved seeing many of these familiar people from Sharon’s family, friends and co-workers. Their personal lives are a part of the story as well. There is also plenty of suspense. The plot here is very timely with the current events. There are crimes which seem hate-related by a white supremacist group. But they might instead be criminals who were previously prosecuted or put on the run […]

Dark and Poole never fails! This author and narrator pairing is one of the best ones out there. Dark writes great characters and Poole is a master at bring them to life with her narration.   Deathtrap picks up shortly after Raveheart left off. Raven, Christian and the rest of Keystone group gets a new case to work that leads them to find out more about one of their team members, Shepherd. The case as a good one and the Shepherd is not the only one who has to deal with their past. Raven is still dealing with letting go of her human life. The best thing about the Crossbreed series is the banter between Raven and Christian. Their relationship is a long dance that has no […]

    Detective Napoleon (Nap) Dumas is brought into a case involving a murdered cop in another state when prints found at the scene match those he’d entered in the system years ago. They belong to his former girlfriend, Maura, who disappeared 15 years ago, the same night when his twin brother, Leo, and his girlfriend, Diana, died in a train accident. His search for answers sets him on a strange and sometimes dangerous path that he just can’t let go. Nap is no saint as he’s got his own unorthodox sense of justice but the more he investigates, the more he’s convinced that everything he’s believed about his brother’s death might be wrong. It’s an unusual narrative, one I liked as Nap discusses the […]

    Charlotte Wells, daughter of a US senator, met former President Hamilton and his son, Matt, when she was 11 years old and was immediately smitten with both of them. Fast forward eleven years and Matt Hamilton is running for president and invites the still crushing Charlotte to join his campaign. It doesn’t take long for these two to admit they both have strong feelings for each other. However, it’s not politically wise for the candidate to have a girlfriend when he’s this close to election day.   The story had such promise and I enjoyed the first half as we learned much about Charlotte and Matt, watching their attraction develop in the midst of an historic campaign. But once they gave into their […]

    Catherine Wright is a 24-year old single mother of a five-year old daughter working as a waitress in a truck stop diner, struggling to make ends meet. When she comes upon a horrific car accident one night and stops to rescue one of the passengers, life as she once knew is over. Turns out the man she saved was hockey star Brett Madden and despite her efforts to keep her name secret, she’s eventually outed.   There are so many layers to this story, particularly as it involves Catherine who was the town pariah following an unfortunate situation when she was 16 years old. That and the fractured relationship with her family sourced her fierce independence. I loved how every move she made […]

  Bound to Darkness 3 Stars It’s been too long since I read the previous book. I was a little lost on the Opus Nostrum and the Atlanteans elements. Bound to Darkness is the second book in what I refer to as the Midnight Breed series 2.0. The newest books are about the adult children the first generation of heroes/heroines from earlier books had. So the series plot arc was wrapped up and a new one started for the Breed to deal with.  Bound to Darkness brought us closer to the new plot line for the series and gives us more of the “new” characters with a peak at old favorites. The romance between Rune and Carys was hot but it took back seat to the […]

  I love this author and I have loved this Devil’s Isle series from the start. Somehow, this is an audio series for me. The world and the character of Claire are something special. Claire is mature; she’s had to be, since she is on her own. Her skills and practical nature reflect her upbringing. In The Hunt, she learns much more about her family history as she works to help all the people in New Orleans, with or without magic.  She grows in her magic skills, and deals with new information. Even though she is a target, and more isolated with hiding, because of her magic, she makes a stand for what is right. At the end of The Sight, Liam leaves. For the […]
