Dark Harbor by Christy Barritt

Madelyn is trying to make a name for herself by moving above the travel articles she usually writes and trying to write a story exposing a small town police chief.  She unfortunately finds herself liking Chief Zach Davis and doing her best to not let on her true purpose as things keep happening to her.  It seems that someone does not want her to write the article.
      This book kept me thinking and it did not turn out the way I thought. I was sure I knew who what behind everything and why, but nope and that is why I really enjoy reading books by this author.
      I received a copy of this book to read and review from the author.




Wait until Dark by Christy Barritt

An intriguing tale that covers a span of time of family history.  Felicity has no idea of the secrets held in her family's past, but when her life comes into danger, she soon does some digging and deciphering.  I enjoyed seeing her family history come to light and I how Brody was able to help her with this adventure.  It was intriguing to see how all the clues came together and what her family history holds.
      I would highly recommend this book .

Kill Devil by Mike Dellosso

Kill Devil is the second book in the Jed Patrick series.  Jed is doing all he can to to do the right thing.  He has done what he though was a thorough job of moving and changing their identities, but when he is found again, he must decide what to do that will be best for his family, even if he does not agree with it.
     I enjoyed reading this book as it kept me guessing what would turn up next and what Jed would end up doing.  It was all I could do to not turn ahead to see what would happens so I could not just anticipate what would happen next.  I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.

The Quieting by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Another great book by Suzanne Woods Fisher.  I always enjoy reading her books as the give a new story and let you catch up with what else has been going on with old characters.  While this is book two, it can stand alone.
      I found the genealogical research interesting as I did the feud which was somewhat linked.  I liked seeing how Abigail's family seemed to act like other families with having their issues and trying to do what they thought best even if it was not what everyone else wanted.

Sea Rose Lane by Irene Hannon

This is the second book in Irene Hannon's Hope Harbor series and is great.  I like seeing how Eric and  BJ work together to create the program for the seniors even though they are still not quiet sure what to think of each other.  It is always nice to see how people can work out their differences to help out others.  I liked seeing how Eric was to get past the changes he was having to go through even though he was not happy about all the changes he learned to work around them and found things to work out for the better.

I Draw on Cats by A.R. Coffelt

This was an interesting book.  I liked the cats in it and the art part was a different twist .  I  liked seeing the transformation of the cats to see their alter egos.  It is a different type of book and utilized a bit of imagination.

My Brother's Crown by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould

This was a fascinating book in how it told the story from the present day view as well as the past when it all originated.  I liked learning the history of the book as well as how it traveled to its present day location.  This is a great book to read and I liked the mystery that was a part of the story as well.


All Summer Long by Melody Carlson

This is the second book in the Follow Your Heart series and is a great summer read.  Tia is helping her aunt get a luxury yacht ready for sunset tours and dinner cruises.  She is glad to be back in San Francisco and even gladder when she reconnects with an old friend.  Things don't go quite as planned when she realizes that her friend doesn't feel the same for her as she does for him.
     I liked seeing how the characters worked together and allowed things to become worked out as needed. It was also interesting to see how the business came about and their working together.
     While this is a young adult book, it will appeal to all ages.

From this Moment by Elizabeth Camden

I got a taste of this book when I read the novella Summer of Dreams and could not wait to see what would happen next.  This book tells the story of Romulus White and his cousin Evelyn and the scientific magazine that they run.  It also tells of their relationships with Stella West, an artist, and Clyde, Evelyn's estranged husband.
     Romulus has been trying to get Stella to come and work for the magazine and I enjoyed seeing how it came about.  She has her own agenda for being in Boston and they come to an agreement that suits both of them.  Evelyn has poured all she has into the magazine as she and Clyde have parted ways, but a job and an accident brings them in contact again and it was nice to see them giving things a chance given their close working quarters.
     The story was enjoyable and I liked seeing how inventions were taking hold and how the public reacted to many of the changes that were going on during this time.  It is always enjoyable to learn something as we…

Forever Safe by Jody Hedlund

Loving lighthouses and historical fiction like I do made this a great book to read.  I have enjoyed reading each book in this series and this one was just as great.  It is a stand alone book, but if you haven't read the others, you will want to go back to enjoy them as well.
     Victoria feels like she has the perfect life and is ready to marry her fiance.  Her life is in danger though and her father hires Tom Cushman to protect her.  He winds up hiding her at the Cape Cod Race Point Lighthouse to keep her safe and to isolate her from those who want to bring her harm.  This is a struggle for Victoria as she is away from all that is familiar.
     I loved seeing the relationship develop between Victoria and Tom and how they were able to work things out even though it wasn't comfortable for either one of them.

Murder Handcrafted by Isabella Alan

Another great adventure of Angie and her faithful companion Oliver.  Things have started to settle down for Angie until her mom decides to remodel her house.  During this time her dad gets hurt and they have to hire outside help.  Then the electrician is found dead and the new help is blamed for it.
      I liked seeing how Angie was able to tie together the parts of the story and was able to see how they were related and why they seemed reluctant to share the truth.  And as always I love seeing what Oliver, Dodger,  and Petunia have been up to in this story.  This is a great book and a great series and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a good read with humor thrown in.
