Review of “A Chance for the Newcomer” by Lisa Carter

I have only read a few books by Lisa Carter so far but I will definitely say I have put her on my must read list. This book did not disappoint and not just because it is set in the mountains of North Carolina either. Kara Lockwood and Will McKenzie both have pasts that they need to come to terms with and leave in the past. Both of these characters will grab at your heart and have you rooting for them to finally open up their eyes to see they should be together. Also, Will’s dad and son as well as Kara’s foster mom make for some amazing secondary characters. This book had my attention from the beginning to the end.

Review of “Hostile Intent” by Lynette Eason

Hostile Intent is the fourth book in Lynette Eason’s Danger Never Sleeps series. It is not necessary to have read the first three in order to enjoy this book. I found the very beginning to be somewhat confusing even though I had read the other books in the series. However, as I read a few more pages into the book, the events started to fall into place and the the plot thickened. One of the main characters, Ava Jackson, finds herself working with FBI Special Agent Caden Denning to uncover the mysteries revealed in the story. Lynette Eason does an excellent job connecting the reader to the characters. It is definitely a page turner and one mystery lovers will not want to miss.

Review of “The Chase” by Lisa Harris

The Chase by Lisa Harris is the second book in the US Marshals series. It is not necessary to read the first book, The Escape, in order to enjoy the second book. The author does an excellent job with character development and from the very first page, the reader will connect with the main characters, Madison James and Deputy US Marshal Jonas Quinn, as well as the secondary characters. This book is filled with mystery and suspense and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I found it hard to put down as I have with Lisa Harris’s previous books. So if you enjoy mystery and suspense, you will definitely enjoy this book..a must read!

Review of “The Secret Keepers of Old Depot Grocery” by Amanda Cox

This is the second book that Amanda Cox has written and the second by her that I have read. I had high hopes and expectations when I started reading this novel and I was not disappointed at all. It is a split-time novel which means that part of the book is set in the past and part is set in the present. I like how the author clearly marks which time period the chapter is set in so the reader does not get confused. The book centers around three generations of women from the same family. I feel like at minimum there is one thing about at least one of the women that most women can relate though it will not be the same thing for each woman. I found this story to be so compelling and heartwarmingly good that it was hard to put down.

Review of “Set in Stone” by David James Warren

This is book four in a six book series.  It has all of the key elements a good suspense book should have including twists that have you seeing stars.  It does not take long in this book for the author to throw in a very interesting surprise which I will not mention so as to not spoil it.  Another interesting dynamic to this book is that for a good portion of the novel, Rembrandt does not have the watch and you are left wondering when or if he will get it back.  This book grabs you in from the very beginning, makes you not want to put it down, and keeps you enthralled until the very end.
