Captivating, moving and surprising, this book is a great read
Review by lacrimsonfemme Feb 21, 2018
This story kicks off a new series from the talented Ms. Brooks. I am hooked on her stories and I can not wait to read the next book in this series. Quite frankly, she is an auto-read author for me now. I will pick up the book without reading her book blurb. I enjoyed going into this story cold. I wasn't sure what to expect. From the first page, the story pulled me in. As the story unfolds, the reader learns more about this McKay family. I'm in love with this family created from the heart. … Read More

Masterful Suspense on so many levels
Review by jeepwonder Feb 10, 2018
The author spun a charming romance into something so much more. With subplots and the skillful use of minor characters life in a small town was realistic, even when strange things started happening. The plot was well paced, never leaving me waiting for the next shoe to drop. The characters developed and matured as the story unfolded. I was glad that no stereotypes shackled the author in the telling, good people had flaws. That doesn't happen in all stories, but it tugged at my heart strings … Read More

Operation: Chance
Review by Heartracer Feb 8, 2018
Reading a long book can sometimes be frustrating and leaving the reader bored. I hate reading books like that because it feels as if the story is dragging on the way past its limits. This book, however, changed my mind! The book starts out with a father of three girls, deceased wife Gracie due to cancer. The girls are the only thing that keeps Emmit McKay sane these days. He sold the home that he lived with his wife until she passed away and moved back into his childhood home. Casey is 10 yrs … Read More

Excellent writing
Review by ashia Jan 30, 2018
I would have to say I have never read anything like this novel, so this was a refreshing change for me. In that, once I started the story, it totally absorbed me, such that I didn't notice the passage of time. My only regret is that it took so long for me to read this story, consumed as I was with personal stuff during the better part of last year. I enjoyed this book a lot, especially with the realizations that come with reading Mary's (or Lizzy) account of her childhood tragedies and terrors. … Read More

Jazz Era Mystery
Review by kimhiding Oct 30, 2017
Set at the end of the Roaring Twenties, Rumer Haven's Coattails and Cocktails is a murder mystery in the vein of Agatha Christie with multiple suspects and a read herring or two. The author weaves a plot that keeps the reader guessing and questions character's motives. Actress Lottie Landry's romance with co-star Noble raises objections from former guardian, Ransom. His wife is suspicious. Undertones and relationships among the characters provide conflict and tension. For a quick entertaining read … Read More

A clever whodunit set in the Roaring Twenties
Review by reviewsinheels Oct 27, 2017
It’s the old story: a dinner party in the country, clashing personalities, and a body in the library. Tensions rise as the remaining guests must work out whodunit and why. There’s no detective present, just five scared people and a whole lot of alcohol. This was a thoroughly enjoyable mystery with plenty of twists; I thought I knew where it was going several times, and each time had the rug pulled out from under me. Despite this, it’s no deus ex machina. There were several red herrings … Read More

Review by lauriebeemer74 Oct 8, 2017
I was hooked from the very first page. The way that Jo showed such strength and courage even after everything that she has been through was truly inspiring. She struggled through the past but she fought it, it did not define her it made her who she now is. When Jo and Will be they have a chemical attraction that is so obvious, but their past is still haunting them both. This book takes the reader on a journey through a very suspenseful path of hurt and destruction and at the end of the path will … Read More

Checkmate, You Loose
Review by Heartracer Oct 6, 2017
The game of chess has always annoyed me. I never could grasp the different moving rules for each piece. This book is about seeing a game being played. The only difference is that the pieces are human. Plots, scheming, blackmail, and murder are the main events in this book. Terrance Thomas Caldwell III is the rich son of a senator. He believes that he will be protected and his "messes" will be cleaned up for him. This time, however, he finds himself looking down the barrel of a loaded … Read More
