               This long running Bishop Special Crimes Unit series has what is actually my favorite paranormal types.  I often say it is witches (magic) as that is more typical. But what I really LOVE best is the talents of the mind – telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and the like. The stories of an FBI unit with these special abilities has truly been one of my favorites. The story arcs are written in trilogies mostly. Early in the series, I would have classified them as romantic suspense. More recently, while there may be relationships or romances between characters, it is barely mentioned. The focus now is the mystery and suspense. Each story is a case with a team. So instead of […]

        I’ve had Cecy Robson on my TBR ever since I meet her a few years ago at RT book con. She is so sweet and I’ve heard great things about her novels. So, I’m starting my reading experience with Robson with Crave Me, the third book in the O’Brien Family series. I know, I know the third book? I was assured that I could read Crave Me before, Once Kissed and Let Me and I agree that readers can easily start with Crave Me. After enjoying Wren’s story I’m going back to read her brother’s stories. The O’Brien family is made up of seven children and Wren is the only girl which means she is tough as nails. She has a mouth of a sailor but looks like a beauty queen […]


Early review: Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop

        Anne’s Review I came to the Others series late, but I’ve loved it since the first book. Marked in Flesh (book 4) was a problem for me, it’s the book just before Etched in Bone. I expected the story to be what it was, generally, without knowing the details. My issue was a slew of new characters which I knew very little and had difficulty with forming a connection to them. Now I understand even less about why they were introduced, since many were not in this next book. So I read on with a bit of trepidation. I’m happy to say Etched in Bone is fabulous. It is a return to beloved characters as a view screen to the world overall. While the story […]

    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 […]

        This is the continuation of the much loved (by me) Green Mountain series with a different publisher.  I loved every book and probably should have rated them all higher than I did. Will Abbott from All You Need is Love, book 1, will be my book boyfriend forever. While so many books are quickly forgotten,  I remember these. The relationships of other couples are shared in little vignettes of precious dialogue which touch the heart, scattered in the new book. The characters in the series have become so important to me. The Abbott family with its 10 kids, their cousins and their friends in this small town in Vermont are caring, funny, sexy and interesting. Emma and her daughter, Simone, were in her […]

    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 […]
