TWISTED BOND – An Emma Hart Review

Murder, romance, and sassy attitude. I’ve been reading Emma Hart’s rom-coms for almost a year now and was excited to see one of her older series get a facelift. But since reading Twisted Bond I’m now HOOKED on Hart’s ability to tell a murder mystery that keeps on giving. Meet Noelle Bond; former cop turned private investigator in her hometown, she’s quickly making a name for herself in the world of catching adulterers. It’s a quiet PI life, until a body ends up in her company’s dumpster. And it just so happens to be related to one of her previous cases and she’s ow entwined with the case more than she wanted to be. Add in the the decedent’s husband also hired her to work alongside the police and it causes for some tough territorial investigating.

You would think a PI would work well with the police, but Noelle has a hate-love relationship with one Detective Drake Nash. Dark, mysterious, and rude as can be…and he’s also hot as Hades. Begrudgingly these two have to end up working together when a SECOND body ends up at Noelle’s feet. It looks like someone is trying to pin murders on our PI but digging in to her past cases. Drake, while fighting his own attraction to Noelle, has to decide if she’s a suspect or an ally to the department. But as much as he’d like to throw her in handcuffs (oh yeah!) he has to work with her and not against her to stop the murders happening in their town.

This is definitely a romance steeped in mystery. While Drake and Noelle fight their attraction the entire book #slowburn, they focus more on solving the case than finding their next fix. I felt like it was the perfect combination of fiction/murder mystery with the right amount of romance. Not too much to drown out either of the main character’s goals, but enough to make you swoon and hope the two will just bone already LOL. I know I’ll want the rest of the series on my TBR soon because I’m loving this dynamic!

When I returned to my hometown of Holly Woods to become a private investigator, there were some things I expected.

Like my crazy Italian grandmother trying to marry me off to any eligible man, her constant arguing with my mother, three protective brothers, and the best friend a girl could ask for.

There were also things I didn’t expect.

Nonna buying a parrot who swears and watches musicals.

The infuriatingly sexy Detective Drake Nash, my oldest brother’s best friend and my life-long nemesis.

And…a few too many dead bodies.

My name is Noelle Bond, and you might not be ready for this.

ONCE UPON A GHOST – An Erin McCarthy Review

img_3367

It’s time for Bailey Burke’s final mystery! After not only discovering that she can speak to ghosts, Bailey chases down the murder of her best friend Ryan, his girlfriend, and a potential serial killer. NOW just when she thinks life has settled down and she can get back to work on her design and staging business, the afterlife rises once more.

Her newest client is double-duty: not only is she supposed to re-do his bachelor pad, he’s also her latest spectral case. After discovering Cezar in his ghastly form, Bailey can’t lose him and she decides to accept her fate and help him figure out what happens. Was he in the mob? Sure. Is he irritating? To no end. But Bailey is as sweet as Irish cream and can’t leave him on his own.

Battling mobsters and sneaky sheriffs, Bailey’s ill equipped to handle these mysteries on her own. Hello Marner! Her sexy cop boyfriend is much more prevalent and swoon in the final Murder by Design novel! He’s caring, he’s protective, but can he handle Bailey’s ghostly secret? Find the killer, save the ghost, get the guy. All in a days work for this design diva!


36347557.jpgWith Bailey Burke’s design and staging business booming- it turns out tangling with a serial killer is the best advertising ever- she has no time to lament her lack of love life, or wonder where her dead friend Ryan’s ghost has gone. She hasn’t seen him in months, but when she finds a body in a home she’s been hired to stage she’s hounded by the dead man’s ghost.

Having been a medium before, this guy is by far the most irritating ghost she’s ever met, with his constant need to talk over her and flick pennies at her head. Without Ryan to guide her, she’s on her own to figure out what the dead man needs from her. On top of all that, cop Jake Marner is back in her life, ostensibly to protect her, but mostly to confuse her as to whether they are dating or not.

Before she can say “Put It Where?” Bailey finds herself immersed in mob dealings, the secret world of male-only sweat baths, and double dealings. When another body turns up, there is no doubt that she’s in over her head… again.

SILENCE OF THE GHOST – An Erin McCarthy Review

img_2739

I LOVE the fact that Erin writes about my hometown in this series. It brings such a real flavor to the novel because I know the areas she’s speaking about.

When we last left Bailey, our new resident ghost whisperer, her best friend’s ghost was still hanging around as his (now) ex-girlfriend’s ghost appeared. On the hunt to find out where and why she died, Bailey discovers yet ANOTHER grisly scene. This poor girl can’t catch a break! So now with the mystery of a possible serial killer on the loose she needs to navigate her way through a past serial killer’s motives.

Ryan seems a little less involved during this mystery especially considering that it began with the murder of his then girlfriend. I really enjoyed the fact that we got to see more of Bailey being a true brainiac as she puts the pieces together herself. McCarthy did a wonderful job of giving evidence where my suspected culprit constantly changed with each new discovery.

With an ending sure to give you chills and goosebumps for the next installment!


35445552.jpg Expert home stager Bailey Burke has come to terms with the fact that her friend, Ryan, is a ghost, but she thought after they solved his murder together, he would get sucked into the light. Instead he’s hanging around and interfering in her love life, and mocking her inability to drink Jameson.

When a body is found near her historic neighborhood of Ohio City, mimicking the famous Torso Murders, and she starts hearing voices, Bailey thinks she’s really lost it now. Ryan’s ghost is one thing, but a whole gaggle of undead talking to her? No thanks. But Ryan informs Bailey she’s not nuts…she is a spiritual medium. And with him as middleman between the victims and the police, they can give the dead justice and he will finally get his one-way ticket to heaven. Considering Eliot Ness allegedly went to his grave bitter that it was the one case he couldn’t solve, Bailey doesn’t see how an uptight lightweight like herself can handle the modern equivalent. But now that Ryan has scared off every man she’s tried to date, including his former partner Marner, she has Saturday nights free for murder-mystery solving.

Yet dealing with the dead is more difficult than de-cluttering a hoarder’s house. Bailey finds herself pulled in all directions… and possibly conned by a killer.

PIECES OF ME – A Shiloh Walker Review

img_2407

Shiloh Walker can write some seriously dark romance. But she always finds a way to have it flow without pulling away from the suspense aspect. In Pieces of Me we meet Shadow who we learn, over a few chapters, has been on the run from her estranged ex-husband due to the extremely horrid abuse he put her through. Her way to cope: her sketchbooks that she feels comfortable enough to put it all out on paper. Every fear, every ounce of anger, and even the moments of lust she feels for the stranger on the beach she sees almost every day.

In a case of fickle fate, Shadow leaves one of her more risqué sketchbooks on the beach and it is discovered by none other than Dillian, the stranger she’s drawn over and over again. Dillian takes the suggestive drawings in stride and knows that behind the quiet and scared woman is the artist behind his every fantasy. For weeks he spends the time to earn Shadow’s trust and pull out her story and learn the truth about why she’s on the run. But even prince charming has some secrets…. And Shadow has to navigate Dillian’s evasive answers especially when her ex-husband comes after her one final time.

Every page left me clinging to the edge of my seat and wanting to know how Shadow could ever find safety. Not only do Dillian and Shadow have some incredible chemistry, the mysterious man also has a secret I was dying to know! It boggles my mind how Walker always keeps the suspense looming without ever making the story line drag. With and ending sure to leave you wanting more this new suspense romance is definitely not like the others and will have you jumping at every sound in the night!


POM Final.jpg Obsession can be deadly…

Nobody knows that better than Shadow Harper. It seemed like a dream come true when a rich, suave older man noticed her during her second year of college. Stefan Stockman seemed to love her obsessively. He came into her life and swept her off her feet, seduced her, married her…and then slowly, eventually, that dream come true became a living nightmare.

Now, three years after she finally escaped him, she’s trying to put her life back together. Haunted by memories, struggling with post-traumatic stress, she spends most of her time locked away in her home on Pawley’s Island, a small town on the South Carolina coast. Her rare moments of joy come from her trips to the nearby beach.

She compulsively checks the locks on her doors, makes sure she has her cell phones—five of them—and if she misses something on her schedule, it throws her into a panic.

When she accidentally leaves a sketchbook on the beach, an anxiety attack seems imminent. Her art has become her salvation, her sanity, and losing even one sketch is like losing a piece of her soul. When she returns to hunt for the sketchbook, already fearing it’s gone for good, she’s surprised to find it still sitting there, saved by a sexy fellow beach lover—the mysterious Dillian Jenkins.

He’s brash, bold, brutally handsome…and gentle. He’s the exact opposite of the man who’d tormented her for years, and Shadow finds herself slowly, almost reluctantly, falling for him. Even obsessing over him.

When her ex-husband once again intrudes on the happiness she’s finally discovering, Shadow turns to Dillian. But will she find shelter there…or another betrayal?

TALKING WITH THE DEAD – A Shiloh Walker Cover Reveal

511GsYmA0QL.jpg

Surrounded by death,
a man with a terrible gift reaches for life.

A horrific tragedy blasted open a door in young Michael
O’Rourke’s mind—cursing him with the ability to talk with the Dead. Nearly two
decades later, Michael has moved from victim to survivor, using his abilities
to seek out those who would go unjudged.

With his gift, he talks to those who’ve died violently and
seeks out their killers. Only once he’s found the murderer, can the victims be
at rest. After his last case, the only thing he wants is peace and he hopes to
find it in the small town of Mitchell, Indiana.

But something is horribly wrong—the dead are waiting for him
there, as well.

Small town sheriff Daisy Crandall is frustrated. The murder
investigation she’s leading is going nowhere, the few leads she’s had haven’t
panned out. She needs a break—this case is personal and when a stranger
arrives, turning up where he shouldn’t be, she’s suspicious. Finding out that he
is more than what he appears to be should shock her but doesn’t. The fact she’s
highly attracted to him at the worst possible time is a hindrance.

Unfortunately, teaming up with Michael is the only way.

Now it’s a race against time before the killer destroys the life of his next victim…

This book has been previously published. A
prequel to the FBI Psychics series.
**Warning: this title contains the following: explicit sex,
graphic language, violence **

GONE WITH THE GHOST – An Erin McCarthy Review

image1.JPG

I’m so glad Erin is BACK! And not only has she got a tale to tell, it’s a freakin GHOST MURDER MYSTERY! And it’s in my hometown so I’ve already got love for this series.

Moving on, I love Bailey: she’s smart, she’s funny, and she has this adorable awkwardness about her where I instantly connected. Her reaction to Ryan’s ghost showing up is so honest and believable. Having a mystery story that really dedicates itself to the story of “who-done-it” versus a budding romance was refreshing. I honestly kept changing who I thought the killer was at every turn! That’s what a great mystery will do to you.

Add in the fact that Ryan has that love-able jerk persona (how do I still find him charming!?) that clashes ever so hilariously with Bailey’s shyness and there is so much comic relief in this story that it makes it a lighthearted murder….if that’s even possible.

That being said…Marner sounds positively delectable and I’m so excited to see where he and Bailey could go. I can’t wait to read on with more adventures that Bailey will get in to! This story reminded me so much of Casey Daniels ghost-talking mysteries set in Cleveland so I’m glad to have another delightful series to turn to!


18519527_1338212479580265_6027734910972881960_n.jpg Bailey Burke has had a rough six months—it’s not easy thinking your romantic overtures toward your best friend caused him to kill himself. Except that’s exactly what happened. Ryan is very much dead, having shot himself with his own police-issued gun. Guilt and grief shouldn’t cause hallucinations though, but six months after Ryan went into the ground, Bailey is freaking out and swearing his ghost is standing in her kitchen. Which he is…

Ryan claims he didn’t commit suicide, but was murdered, and he needs Bailey to help him find his killer so he can earn his ticket out of purgatory. Ryan’s counting on a stairway to heaven, as opposed to wings, since that might be a little unmanly for a cop, even a dead one.

An expert in home design, with her own staging business, Bailey can tell you where to place a couch to improve flow and comfort, but solving a crime? Not her area of expertise. But with help from Ryan’s former partner, Marner, she is unraveling the mystery of what happened to Ryan that day… and unwittingly putting herself in grave danger.

About RETREAT:

Every once in a while, you need to get away from it all.

I was a woman on the edge, shaken and shattered after a breakup that felt like it tore my entire world apart.

My best friend, sick of watching me drown in misery and melancholy, harassed me until I agreed to go with her on a week-long wilderness retreat.

She promised days spent bonding and getting in touch with our inner badasses. It was supposed to be all about the two of us roughing it and making do with the bare minimum. She assured me we were going to be pushed to our limits in ways that were unimaginable. Neither one of us could have ever guessed just how right she was.

Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements. The brochure also forgot to mention the part that warned when you left civilization behind, there was no place to pack your inhibitions and fears.

I was told that I would be facing a week where the only thing I should expect was the unexpected. However, no one mentioned that I was going to have to fight for my life…and my heart as soon as I ventured into the unknown.

I was a pro at hiding from my feelings but when it came time to face a real threat, one that could change everything, I learned I was more of a no surrender, no retreat kind of girl.
