Edge of Sight

In Roxanne St. Clare's Edge of Sight, the first installment in the Guardian Angelinos romantic suspense series, this novel would leave you breathless and at the edge of her seat. When Samantha Fairchild witnessed a murder in the wine cellar of the restaurant she worked out, it had literally sent him running for the hills. And when someone came after her, she ran into her ex-flame Zach Angelino as she hid into her friend Vivi's apartment. From there, she needed Zach to protect her from the hit man who wanted to see her dead. And Vivi, Zach's twin sister, suggested Zach to protect her while she investigated the murder itself. As she ducked for cover in a safe house with Zach, they came to terms about their feelings for each other and resolved issues, including why didn't didn't contact her during the war. Though one-eyed with all of the guilt and battle scars on him and in him, he told her the truth and stopped the killer from coming after her with the big reveal on who was really behind the hit on her with a shocking end.

This was a beautiful and explosive romantic suspense novel in a brand new series. I cared about Samantha and how she overcame obstacles to defeat the odds. I also adored Zach and Vivi, who were two of a kind in their own Italian family way. In spite of Zach losing his eye in the war, it showed how diversity and how beauty is only skin deep from the inside-out. I loved the Boston suburban area for the scenic locations and glorious scenery. This would have you gasp, leave you breathless and speechless, and at the edge of the seat with intrigue, non-stop action, drama, and plenty of heated romance along the way.

To Love Anew

In Bonnie Leon's To Love Anew, the first installment in the Sydney Cove historical/inspirational romance series, she wrote us a captivating romance about redemption through the Lord and finding new love again. Set in the 1800s in London,Hannah Talbot had lost everything, when her mother died as she couldn't paid the rent. Forced to work for a cruel employer, he had taken advantage of her and banished her to work on a prisoner ship. For John Bradshaw, he was a successful business man, who was betrayed by the people who mean the most to him and sentenced to work on the same ship. Both of them worked hard labor and meet new people on the trip to New South Wales, Australia. While Hannah harbored a terrible secret from her past, a connection between Hannah and John had formed. When they arrived as prisoners on a new land, they worked for the same family and dealt with new conflicts along the way. And only they became to love anew and find their way to each other with help from our Lord's forgiveness.

This was a beautiful and touching historical, inspirational romance novel that pulled at my heart strings and made me cry. I instantly cared for Hannah and how she was mistreated in London, when Ruby was a kind soul to her. I felt the same way for John whose wife and cousin were cruel. But I loved how they came together by working on the same ship and then on the same land. I loved the dual locations of England and Australia, plus on the water that showed how cruel fate can be to others. This would make you pray, weep, and kick a pillow along the way in every captivating page. This has romance, suspense, drama and non-stop action with intrigue.

Will you find love anew with God and with someone else?

Murder is Binding

In Lorna Barrett's Murder is Binding, the first installment in the Booktown Cozy Mystery series, a brand new series from Lorna Barrett with the theme of books and reading.  For Tricia Miles, she was new to Stoneham New Hampshire and just opened her used bookstore, Haven't Got a Clue. It started out for her, when her neighbor Doris Gleason was killed in her store. As a fellow newbie, all eyes were on her as the prime suspect. Then when Winnie was hit by a car, this small town have been rocked by two murders, the first in over sixty years. And once again, the sheriff blamed Tricia. If there wasn't enough going on, her sister arrived in town, someone handed out tracts for a nudist columnist retreat, and more surprises came in store  for her with Doris's twin sister and the selectman's suspicious motives. As they uncovered the truth, the more lives were in peril until it became almost deadly for them with a surprising twist in the end.

This was a delightful new cozy series from Lorna Barrett. I loved the small town effect for Stoneham NH and the visual close-knit neighborhood for this fictional town, too. I cared about Tricia and Angelica as sisters and individually. They both suffered a lot and been though tons, too. I didn't like Sheriff Adams at all either. This would hook you like a great book and take you on an adventure like no other for a quick read with drama, non-stop action, suspense and intrigue.
