Review: Always Watching


My rating: 5 of 5 stars


ABOUT THE BOOK

The bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have more than just skill and prowess in common--they're also all women. When it becomes clear that popular psychiatrist and radio personality Wade Savage has a stalker, his father secretly hires Elite Guardians in order to protect his son.

But when Wade's bodyguard is attacked and nearly killed, agency owner Olivia Edwards must step in and fill the gap. Olivia's skills are about to be tested to the limit as Wade's stalker moves from leaving innocent gifts at his door to threatening those closest to him. Olivia has the feeling that she's next on the list. And to complicate things even further, she realizes that her heart may be in as much danger as her client.

MY REVIEW

Lynette Eason is one of my favorite suspense writers and this book definitely lived up to my expectations.  I really enjoyed this book!

First off, I love that the Elite Guardians are all women!  Some of my favorite characters in crime shows on TV are female.  :)  They do pull in help from other agencies though once the danger increases.  And I liked how Olivia's backstory plays into why she started the Elite Guardians Agency.
There was no lack of edge of your seat suspense!   When the first bodyguard is attacked and nearly killed, you find out really quick that this stalker has planned and knows what they are doing.  As the story moved along I had my ideas as to who the stalker was but there were plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing.   The story moves along at a fast pace with lots of highly suspenseful action scenes.

You also get your behind the scenes romance with Olivia and Wade.   They struggle to keep their feelings for one another from growing for more than one reason.  But as they learn to know one another and draw on each others strengths to try to find this stalker and protect Wade and his family, they can't help but fall in love.  They also help each other strengthen/renew their relationships with God.

Blog Tour Giveaway & Review: Like There's No Tomorrow




Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Christian
Publisher: Ashberry Lane Publishing
Publication Date: September 30, 2014
Number of pages: 310


Like There’s No Tomorrow is an amusing yet tender love story about two kind caretakers, two quirky old Scottish sisters bent on reuniting, and too many agendas. It’s a tale of family, falling in love, faith, and the gift of each new day.

Scottish widower Ian MacLean is plagued by a mischievous grannie, bitter regrets, and an ache for something he’ll never have again. His only hope for freedom is to bring his grannie's sister home from America. But first, he'll have to convince her lovely companion, Emily, to let her go. Emily Chapman devotes herself to foster youth and her beloved Aunt Grace. Caring for others quiets a secret fear she holds close to her heart. But when Ian appears, wanting to whisk Grace off to Scotland, everything Emily needs to protect—including her heart—is at risk.




Camille Eide writes romantic, inspirational dramas about love, faith, and family. She lives in Oregon with her husband and is a mom, grammy, bass guitarist, and a fan of muscle cars, tender romance, oldies Rock, and Peanut M&Ms.




Like There’s No Tomorrow (sample)

Let her be okay ... Please, God, let her be okay ...
Flashing red lights blinked like buoys in a sea of sand and sagebrush from half a mile away. When Emily turned onto Salt Flats Road, she spotted the sheriff’s car in front of the house along with the emergency rigs. But as she neared the house, the flashing stopped. Uniformed EMTs worked at the back of their ambulance, locking compartment doors. A couple of firefighters reattached something to the fire truck.
No crackling flames. No smoke. No sheet-covered stretcher.
Still, Emily couldn’t breathe. As she braked, the Jeep ground to a stop in the gravel, sending up a cloud of dust. She dashed up the steps and across the covered porch.
A thick, noxious blend of odors met her at the doorway, setting her heart pounding.
“Aunt Grace?” Inside, Emily took a quick glance around the front room and found her great-aunt snuggled up in her favorite corner chair.
A uniformed fireman stood nearby while the EMT on the loveseat beside Aunt Grace packed up a medic kit.
Grace’s soft, wrinkly face drew wide with a smile as Emily came near. “Ooh, here ye are dearie. Such a kind lass. Did ye bring the mail? We’ll be getting a letter from Maggie and Ian today.”
That was good for a partial sigh of relief. “Are you okay?” Emily touched her aunt’s thin shoulder, then bent over the little white-haired woman and kissed the top of her head. “What’s going on? Have you been baking?”
“Aye. Lemon cookies for tea to go with Maggie’s letter.” The old woman nodded, leaned closer, and whispered, “But I’m afraid I misplaced my spatula.”
Oh, Lord, not again. Emily glanced at the fireman, a guy from their church.
He greeted her with a nod and glanced down at Aunt Grace, his drawn brow deepening his look of uncertainty. “You ... might want to start by looking in the kitchen.”
Emily let out a pent-up breath and forced a smile. “Good idea, Brad. Thanks.” She smiled into the old woman’s clouded eyes, once the color of autumn sky. “I’ll be right back.”
In the kitchen, another fireman with a clipboard tossed her a nod and kept writing.
She recognized him too, one of Jaye’s recent crushes.
The pungent smell of burnt cookie and melted plastic stung Emily’s nose.
On the counter, a few dozen lemon shortbread cookies stood stacked in tidy rows. The oven door hung open. Inside, a batch of charred cookies rested peacefully, including what was left of the missing spatula, partially melted at a weird angle in the middle like some kind of eclectic pop art. Though every window was open, a gray haze hovered near the ceiling. Aunt Grace’s favorite Nottingham lace curtains fanned the acrid odor with the help of a gentle breeze.
Emily rubbed her tingling nose. After a last glance around the kitchen, she returned to the front room.
“Did ye find it?” Grace asked, still whispering.
“Yes, I did.” Emily couldn’t help a faint smile at her great-aunt’s concern that someone might discover she’d lost a kitchen utensil. Never mind nearly burning down a house. “It’s right where you left it.”
“Ah, good. Thank ye, dearie.” Her soft Scottish brogue and cheerful smile returned.
No harm done.
This time.





My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a lovely story!  I knew when I read the synopsis for this book that I was in for a treat.   One, it involved a visit to Scotland!  Two, it involved 2 older, somewhat frail ladies under the care of their individual family members.  The situations this puts our two main caretakers in were sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes wonderfully touching.

Ian MacLean is anxious to get out from under the "burden" of having to be on constant watch and care of his grannie, Maggie.  He sees no reason that her sister, Grace, who is living in America, shouldn't move to Scotland and take over the primary care.  After all, the letters that he's been reading to Maggie from Grace (and Emily) indicate she is doing great and, in his mind, well able to care for them both.   However, what he doesn't know is that the letters from Grace (written by Emily) do not reveal the whole picture.

Emily Chapman has been lovingly caring for her Aunt Grace for many years and knows that Grace is not well enough to travel to Scotland by herself to see her sister.   And it definitely wouldn't be safe to leave her in charge of another elderly lady.  So when she gets a letter from Maggie (written by Ian) indicating that they want Grace to move to Scotland, Emily writes back a quick refusal.

When Ian comes to America on business and shows up at Emily's work, the battle lines are drawn.  But Ian didn't know that Emily was a young woman and Emily didn't know that Ian could be such a charmer and so persuasive.   As they spend time together sparks began to fly.  But Ian and Emily both have serious wounds from their pasts.   Can they work through these issues and find another chance at happiness?

This a very well written book with a lot of well developed characters and in depth emotions.   You'll laugh and cry as you follow Ian and Emily's journey to God and to healing, hope, and true love.

Review: Playing the Part


My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Lucetta Plum is an actress on the rise in New York City, but is forced to abandon her starring role when a fan's interest turns threatening. Lucinda's widowed friend, Abigail Hart, is delighted at the opportunity to meddle in Lucetta's life and promptly whisks her away to her grandson's estate to hide out.

Bram Haverstein may appear to simply be a somewhat eccentric gentleman of means, but a mysterious career and a secret fascination with a certain actress mean there's much more to him than society knows.

Lucetta, who has no interest in Abigail's matchmaking machinations, has the best intentions of remaining cordial but coolly distant to Bram. But when she can't ignore the strange and mysterious things going on in his house, it'll take more than good intentions to keep her from trying to discover who Bram is behind the part he plays.


Jen Turano is one of my favorite authors and she does not disappoint in this book.   This is book 3 in the series A Class of Their Own, but it can be read as a stand-alone.  However, if you read the first two you'll get a more in depth idea of who Lucetta is.

I loved the setting of this book.  A "haunted", foreboding, Gothic looking castle with a real life moat.  What could be a better setting for an actress who needs to hide away for her safety and a mysterious, somewhat eccentric gentleman of means and his motley staff who are reformed thieves and down-and-outers?  LOL  What ensues is mysteriously fun and laugh out loud situations that will keep you glued to the pages.

I enjoyed the developing relationship between Bram and Lucetta.  Bram has preconceived ideas about Lucetta and is delightfully shocked when she proves him wrong from the time she steps foot on his property.  Lucetta is drawn to Bram right away but is reluctant to give up the control she believes she has to maintain over her emotions and life as a result of her occupation and her many admirers.

If you've read the first two books, you'll also enjoy the appearances of Abigail Hart & Archibald Addleshaw as well as mentions of Lucetta's dear friends, Harriet & Millie.

All in all, this book will keep you enthralled as you unravel the mystery, wait for the danger to pass, and enjoy the sweet romances.

Review: The Hearts We Mend



My rating: 4 of 5 stars



For young widow Evie Bennett, moving forward will mean deciding what to leave behind . . . and what to keep.

Widowed at the age of twenty-five when her firefighter husband was killed in the line of duty, Evie Bennett has spent the last thirteen years raising their son, Cody, in the close-knit community of Banister Falls. As the women’s ministry director of her church, Evie encourages women to boldly pursue God’s plan for their future . . . while she is content with her memories of the past. But Evie’s well-ordered life begins to change when she meets Jack Vale.

As Evie gets drawn into Jack’s world—a world that isn’t as safe and predictable as the one she’s worked so hard to create—he challenges her to open her eyes to the problems in the community . . . but will Evie open her heart to love again?

Because even though Jack isn’t anything like her late husband, he just might be everything she needs.



I enjoyed this sweet romance about single mom Evie and Jack, the temporary church custodian who shakes up her world.   She's lived a sheltered life and he's lived a hard one.  They couldn't be more different.  But something about this handsome genuine man who reaches out to the poor and needy draws Evie into a whole other way of living.  I love her generous heart and willingness to grow and change.  I also love Jack's commitment to his family and his way of helping others.  The secondary characters added a lot to the story and were fun to read about.  All in all a well written book worth reading!

Review: Thin Ice by Irene Hannon


My rating: 5 of 5 stars





After losing her parents in a car accident and her sister to a house fire, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Life is finally starting to feel normal again when an envelope arrives in the mail--addressed in her sister's handwriting. And the note inside claims she is still alive.

FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator, is assigned to reopen the case, but he's coming up with more questions than answers. If Ginny Reed is still alive--who is the woman buried in her grave? Where is Ginny? And is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game--or the target of a sinister plot? As he digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: whoever is behind the bizarre ruse has a deadly agenda.

Bestselling author and two-time Christy Award finalist Irene Hannon warms readers' hearts as they root for a romance between Lance and Christy, but she pulls out all the stops as this high-stakes thriller chills to the bone in a race to the finish.




As always, this suspense novel by Irene Hannon was full of action, twists, and nail-biting suspense along with romance and faith in action.   Christy Reed is just finding her way out of the grief of losing both her parents and her sister in a short space of time when she gets a letter from her dead sister.  I liked how her faith kept her grounded and how her strong character wouldn't let her be intimidated by the customary "don't go to the police" threat.   Adding to the suspense is the fact that you also get part of the story from the perspective of the bad guy, who is plenty creepy and physco.   You'll be on the edge of your seat as you follow the story and try to determine if Ginny is still alive and why this guy has an agenda against Christy and her family.   You'll also enjoy the undercurrent of romance between Christy and FBI Agent Lance McGregor.

Blog Tour Review: Not Always Happenstance

Not Always (1)


Not Always Happenstance





Lani has lived in Hana, Hawaii for five years. She’s learned to surf, fish, dive, and manage her grandmother’s bed and breakfast. She’s also learned to take one day at a time the way it should be taken—relaxed and unrushed, savoring every moment.

But, like a large wave on the brink of breaking, her life is about to crash out of control. A proposal of marriage, a conniving grandmother, a cryptic Asian woman, and a handsome guest, and suddenly everything calm begins to churn, everything clear becomes confused, and all that was normal segues into peculiar.

As Lani struggles against the current to hold her ground, she realizes that she can either continue to fight and eventually lose, or take a take a leap of faith, hold her breath, and ride the wave wherever it takes her.

***This book is part of the Power of the Matchmaker series that features one recurring character—the match maker—but it is a STAND-ALONE novel.***

amazon get it add to goodreads




Another hit by Rachael Anderson!  I love her books.  They are well written and are a sweet romantic escape to another world.  In this instance - Hawaii!  One day I'd love to visit there.

Lani came to Hawaii five years ago to help the grandmother she barely knew with her B&B.  She has since fallen in love with her grandmother and Hawaii!  When the man she has been dating long distance for five years wants her to move back to California and marry him, Lani struggles with the decision.   Then Easton (and Pearl!) enters the picture.  I really didn't like him at first because you are told up front that he is a womanizer who travels the world with no goodbyes and no attachments.  And Lani was too sweet and good and loyal to have her heart broken like that!  In spite of his determination to not fall in love, Easton is drawn to Lani more than anyone he's ever met.  And in spite of herself, Lani is also drawn to Easton.   With the help of her grandmother, the mysterious new guest, Pearl, and few mystical nudges, Easton and Lani gradually get to know one another.  Then they have to decide if what they are feeling is big enough to make some changes and commit to a lifetime of love.

I loved the camaraderie between Lani and the Hawaiians she has come to know and love.   These secondary characters and her grandmother added a sweet note to the story.   I also enjoyed the mentions of Easton's family and his closeness with them in spite of his travels.  It gives one hope that his character isn't so bad.  :)

Review: Timeless Regency Collection: A Midwinter Ball





ABOUT THE BOOK

From the publisher of the #1 Amazon bestselling A Timeless Romance Anthology series in Clean Romance.  Join three bestselling regency romance authors, Heidi Ashworth, Annette Lyon, and Michele Paige Holmes, for three new regency romance novellas in A MIDWINTER BALL.

MUCH ADO ABOUT DANCING by Heidi Ashworth. Two years have passed since Lord Northrup declared his intentions for Miss Analisa Lloyd-Jones and forbade any other man to court her. Angry at the neglect, Analisa stopped reading his letters, never even breaking the seals. Tired of waiting, Analisa joins the house party at Mrs. Smith’s famous country home, determined to find a beau. When Lord Northrup unexpectedly joins the party, Analisa discovers she is no longer repulsed by the man who first laid claim to her hand.

SWEETER THAN ANY DREAM by Annette Lyon. Olivia Wallington is firmly established as a spinster, but that doesn’t stop her from dreaming about the perfect man. Ever since her father’s death, Olivia has been forced into seclusion by her mother. When her brother and his wife come for a visit, they discover the extent to which she lives under their mother’s thumb. With their help, Olivia sneaks out to attend a local ball, where she meets Edward Blakemoore. For a few divine moments, all of her dreams seem possible. But even someone like Mr. Blakemoore would be hard pressed to get past Mrs. Wallington’s fortress of protection—or past Olivia’s pride.

AN INVITATION TO DANCE by Michele Paige Holmes. Lady Ella has been isolated on her father’s estate since her mother’s death as her father travels the world. When Alex Darling arrives with a letter from her long-dead fiancĂ©, and a demand that she travel to London for a series of engagements, Ella thinks her father instigated the strange demands and agrees. In London, she discovers the truth behind her fiancĂ©’s death, and that new love might be possible in the arms of the most unexpected man.

MY REVIEW

I really liked this new book in the Timeless Regency Collection series.   The romances are clean and sweet and fun.  You can't go wrong in reading these books!  :)

In Much Ado About Dancing, Lord Northrup has to find a way to convince Analisa that he's a changed man from the one that left two years ago.  Analisa has to find a way to forget and forgive the man that he was when he left and learn who he is now.  A well written novella with a lovely ending!

In Sweeter Than Any Dream,  Olivia holds onto her sanity by daydreaming about a different life and a perfect man.   Although smart and well read, Olivia has lived with the tyranny of her mother and her aunt for awhile and tries not to make waves.  When her newly married brother and his wife persuade her to sneak out to a ball she meets the man of her dreams.   In order to realize her dream of love she will have to grow a backbone and stand up for herself.   I loved this sweet story of dreams coming true!

In An Invitation To Dance, Lady Ella has been on her own for several years as her grief stricken father travels the world.   She is bold, vibrant, and used to doing things her way.   When she receives a letter from her long-dead fiance at the hands of Alex Darling, she thinks it may be her father surprising her for her birthday.  When she gets to London and learns differently, she finds herself relying on Mr. Darling to help her through the season.   When they start falling in love, Ella has to convince him to let go of his pride and open his heart to her.   I really enjoyed this well written novella about a spunky, unconventional Lady and the gruff proud man who falls in love with her.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS


Heidi Ashworth, best-selling, award-winning author of traditional regency romance, lives in the San Francisco bay area, but she lost her heart across the pond when she was very young. She read her first regency romance when she was four years old (just a few words, but it was enough). The first one she wrote took place in Paris circa 1974 but such gaffes are mere trifles when you are only ten. Since then she has sharpened her skills and garnered a few accolades; Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind hit the number one spot on several of Amazon's regency romance lists in both the U.S. and England, while its sequel earned a finalist position in the Whitney Awards (both are available via Montlake Romance).  Her novella, It Happened Twelfth Night, is one of six short stories in the first volume of the award-winning, best-selling series, A Timeless Romance Anthology, via Mirror Press.  The third book in her Miss Delacourt series, Lord Haversham Takes Command, was re-released in a box set entitled "Every Hope: A Triple Treat Romance", in December 2014, also via Mirror Press. Her latest in the Miss Delacourt series, Miss Armistead Makes Her Choice, garnered a 4.5 star Crowned Heart review from InD'tale Magazine and is currently a 2015 RONE Award finalist. You can find her on her blog, Facebook, & Twitter.

Annette Lyon is a Whitney Award winner, the recipient of Utah’s Best in State medal for fiction and the author of ten novels, a cookbook, and a grammar guide as well as over a hundred magazine articles. She’s part of the Timeless Romance Anthologies line of sweet romance stories, a senior editor at Precision Editing Group, and a cum laude graduate from BYU with a degree in English. When she’s not writing, editing, knitting, or eating chocolate, she can be found mothering and avoiding the spots on the kitchen floor.

Excerpt

He paused for a moment. His intense gaze had me feeling undone. “Are you happy, Kenadie?”
“That’s a complicated question.”
“Well, you are a complicated woman.”
“I don’t try to be.”
“It was a compliment.”
“How do you do that?”
“What’s that?”
“You always know what to say to make me feel better about myself.”
“Well, that’s easy. You give me good material to work with.”
“Jason … Today, I’m happy.”
“You don’t know how happy I am to hear that,” he said smoothly.
