Review: 5 stars for You Can Hide: A Riveting New Thriller (A Laurel Snow Thriller Book 2) by Rebecca Zanetti


Set against the atmospheric backdrop of rural Pacific Northwest, New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti’s thrilling suspense series follows FBI Special Agent Laurel Snow as she strives to navigate her complicated family life when her newly discovered sociopathic half-sister becomes the target of a dangerous killer. The Blacklist meets The Profiler meets Justified in this fast, page-turning thriller that will have readers guessing until the very end!

What do you do when a sociopath loves you? Rising star FBI profiler Laurel Snow is about to find out …

Calling Laurel Snow’s relationship with her newly discovered half-sister challenging is an understatement. Not only does Laurel suspect Abigail is behind the mysterious disappearance of their father, but her erratic behavior also makes life in Laurel’s small hometown interesting, to say the least. Still, when Abigail claims someone is now out to kill her, Laurel’s instinct to protect her sister goes into overdrive. Then things get even more dicey as dead bodies start turning up in the icy waters of the Sauk River and there’s only one connection among them: Abigail . . .

Having Fish and Wildlife Captain Huck Rivers bringing in those bodies with his dive team only complicates matters. Huck is as impulsive and fiery as Laurel is coolly analytical, which makes their alliance risky at best. But standing up to such a demonically brilliant killer is going to take all the help Laurel can get. Because Laurel’s attempt to save her troubled sister’s life might cost her own . . .

 What I thought about You Can Hide

When I read You Can Run, the first book in this series earlier this year, I absolutely loved Laurel Snow and Huck Rivers.  They are a great crime-solving team and I was left wanting more.  Well the day has come and I finished You can Hide yesterday and I'm still sighing over how much I love this series.

Expert FBI profiler and genius Laurel Snow is back in town with a new serial killer who is leaving brutally murdered women in the snow.  He's got a calling card as well -- he leaves Black Dahlia's all over the place to commemorate the crime.  

As the team unravels the clues, more murders are committed.  And Laurel's creepy half-sister is involved.  That can't be good, because creepy Dr. Craine is one of the creepiest!  This is a character that made my skin crawl every time she was on page.  

I don't want to spoil the serial murder case for you, although I had a good idea of the culprit somewhere around the halfway mark.  It's the motivation for the murders that ties everything together in a deliciously sinister way and sets up the story for more the come.

I adored Laurel's examination into her own life and her relationship with Huck, which is really the shining star on the top of the cake for me as a romance reader.  I just love these two together, and their conflicts in this installment were very real. There's so much between these two characters that is unsaid, which makes me want more, more, more of them!  I can hardly wait for the next installment in the series.

So overall, great characters. Even the secondary characters piqued my interest, especially the new IT analyst, Nestor.  I hope he gets some more page time.  And the older detectives that are also part of the team are also an integral part of the crime-fighting element.  The creepy Dr. Craine is worth the price of the book for sure. The serial-killer case was well-crafted with just enough clues for this reader to figure out what was going on right along with the team.  I just love everything about this series.

Review: 5 Stars for The Personal Assistant by Kimberly Belle

USA TODAY bestselling author Kimberly Belle returns with a deeply addictive thriller exploring the dark side of the digital world when a mommy-blogger’s assistant goes missing.

When Alex first began posting unscripted family moments and motivational messages online, she had no intention of becoming an influencer. Overnight it seemed she’d amassed a huge following, and her hobby became a full-time job—one that was impossible to manage without her sharp-as-a-tack personal assistant, AC.

But all the good-will of her followers turns toxic when one controversial post goes viral in the worst possible way. Alex reaches out to AC for damage control, but her assistant has gone silent. This young woman Alex trusted with all her secrets, who had access to her personal information and front row seats to the pressure points in her marriage and family life, is now missing and the police are looking to Alex and her husband for answers. As Alex digs into AC’s identity – and a woman is found murdered – she’ll find the greatest threat isn’t online, but in her own living room.

Written in alternating perspectives between Alex, her husband, and the mysterious AC, this juicy cat and mouse story will keep you guessing till the very end.

What I thought about The Personal Assistant
In this domestic thriller from Kimberly Belle, Unapologetically Alex, an Insta-Influencer celebrates her millionth follower with her husband Patrick and her personal assistant. A.C. When she wakes from a tequila fueled evening, she discovers that her life is about to explode.. and not in a good way.  I found the influencer aspect of the story and what it had to say about the perils and promise of being a social media influencer interesting and worth examination.

Things escalate to dead bodies and death threats, missing guns and lots of finger pointing. There is one clear suspect, but it all seems unlikely.  But is it?  After Alex starts doing some investigating of her own, she learns a lot about connections and starts to see there is more going on than just a missing personal assistant.

I liked this.  I was hooked on reading it in the first few pages and things moved along at a very nice pace to keep things interesting. The prime suspect isn't hard to figure out, but the details were all very sketchy until the end of the story. I really didn't see that ending coming, so that was satisfying too!

There's lots to keep the reader guessing in The Personal Assistant as to what is going on and who is doing it.  There are multiple points of view and each thread of the story pulls you along until the very end that challenges the reader to put the clues together.  I liked the way this story was presented.

Overall, a very entertaining and satisfying reading domestic thriller.  Kept me guessing until the very end.

Review: 5 Stars for Flirting With The Beast (Modern Love #2) by Jane Porter


A woman expecting to spend the holidays alone finds warmth in the iciest man she knows in this steamy and charming later-in-life romance by New York Times bestselling author Jane Porter.

It’s been five years since Andi McDermott lost her husband, and she’s finally starting to feel like herself again, ready to live fully—she’s even started dating again. But when her holiday plans with her stepson and his fiancĂ©e fall through, she refuses to spend another Christmas alone while everyone is celebrating with their families. Impulsively, she decides to go up to her cabin in Lake Arrowhead, a place she used to love to visit but hadn’t gone to in years, not since the feud started between her husband and their nearest neighbor.

Andi starts to rethink her decision when being alone at the cabin proves to be more challenging than she expected—a heavy snowstorm hits the area, and Andi finds herself trapped there with no one to help except for her neighbor, Wolf Enders. A military vet who lives full-time on Lake Arrowhead, Wolf is as grumpy and intimidating as Andi remembers. But he’s also unexpectedly kind and uncomfortably sexy—his presence reminds Andi that she may be older, but her body still works perfectly fine, thank you very much. But can this good girl tame this sexy beast of a man, and will this snowy fling turn into a love of a lifetime?


What I thought about Flirting With The Beast
I've been waiting for a romance to really grab me and it's been a while. I wanted the kind of romance that keeps you reading until the final pages, the one you can't put down because you've just become so engaged with the characters and their journey.

Flirting with the Beast satisfied that for me.  I read this in less than 24 hours, and loved Andi and Wolf. This was an interesting and fresh romance for me.

Andi is a widow, having lost her husband 5 years ago. In her late fifties, she's coming out of her grief and wants to embrace life again.  She's excited to enjoy the holidays until someone she cares about acts in an inconsiderate manner, forcing her to find alternate arrangements.  She ends up going to the family cabin.

There's a bit of a history to the cabin -- her husband had feuded with their neighbor Wolf, who'd always made Andi feel just a bit anxious.  Their
re-acquaintance is cute and uncomfortable, and a snow storm changes everything.  I loved Andi here as she examines her feelings about Wolf.  It's really cute.  They both are.  But Wolf is not a relationship kind of guy.

He's also got some family issues to deal with in the form of his daughter-in-law and her hyper three year old.  Wolf's sense of responsibility puts him back in Andi's orbit, and things get sweet again... for a while.

I adored the uncertainties in this relationship as I thought it mirrored real life, and just when things are getting into a nice groove for them -- BAM! it's painful and messy and wrong on so many levels that I wondered how they could ever make it back from that point, but the author does a great job of putting them back together in a very believable way with a message about love and forgiveness.

I love a romance that draws me right in and knows how to pull on my emotional strings as a reader.  Flirting with the Beast did just that.  I couldn't put it down, and I really loved Andi and Wolf's romance.  It was a story that shows that "lightning-bolt" kind of love can  happen at any age, but there might be a cost to pay too.  I was blown away by this story and loved it all. Will definitely be on my favorites of 2022 list.

Review: Ravaged (Burned, Inc. #2) by Naima Simone


From USA Today bestselling author Naima Simone comes an electrifying romance about a pro basketball player and a graphic novelist who can’t seem to stay in the friend zone.


It’s no coincidence that my family’s breakup service is called BURNED Inc. I know what it’s like to be dumped. I’ve been there.

Long story short, I’ve got a rule when it comes to my love life: no athletes. As it happens, my best friend, Jordan, is a professional basketball player. He also has a delicious body and sexy tattoos.

But rules are rules.


Miriam is my best friend. She’s also the love of my life, the woman I’ve been dreaming about since we met. But she doesn’t do athletes.

I get it. I really do. And I just want Miriam to be happy. Which is why I set her up with a teammate to help her find the man she deserves—even though I can tell she’s into me from that one hot-as-hell night we shared months ago. Still, rules are rules.

But here’s the thing: I’m a competitor.

And sometimes you have to break the rules to win.



Add to Goodreads


About the series

BURNED Inc. is the premiere antimatchmaking service. For the entrepreneurial Nelson siblings, they’re about helping Denver’s unlucky in love break up to find a path to someone new. But they know better than anyone, it can be fraught with awkward exes, mixed messages, and complicated emotions. But for this enterprising trio, it just might be worth it.
What I thought about Ravaged
I read the blurb for this book and thought it might satisfy my need for a hot romance.  This is a first-time author for me. 
In Ravaged, Miriam has sworn off athletes, but she has one huge problem -- she's in love with her best friend, Jordan who happens to be a sexy, tatted up basketball player.  
And Jordan -- he's in love with his best friend, too.  Easy - peasy!
From the first pages, it's clear this is going to be story of these two figuring out what is important to them.  I think that was one of the problems I had with this story - there weren't any real surprises here.
When Jordan encourages Miriam to go out with his recently widowed teammate, I wasn't sure if it was misguided or downright mean for him to do this. In any case, it was guaranteed to cause the conflict in the story. 
There were some aspects outside of the love story that I enjoyed.  Miriam has a secret life as a graphic novelist and that was an interesting part of the story.  The family business she's involved with also could have had more page time as it was a unique aspect to the story.
Overall, Ravaged was a predictable romance.  I had a bit of trouble connecting with Jordan, partly because the cover of this book was in conflict with how I envisioned the character.  The couples do get very steamy which saved the story for me, so if that's what you are looking for, Ravaged could be a good fit for you.

YA Review: Storm Chaser by Lindsey Duga


Chasing dangerous storms is in Marley Pascal’s blood. For her, it’s an obsession—a need to confront the powerful, destructive forces that killed her parents.

But the storm she and her brother track down seems to violate the very laws of nature, with lightning that strikes as if from another world. In its crater, Marley finds a small purple crystal with a terrifying energy that hits her like a bolt to the chest when she picks it up.

Suddenly, it’s like the electricity pulses through her blood, a charge she can’t control. Which is exactly when he comes looking for her—the ridiculously hot boy whose eyes spark and crackle with the same force that now resides in her body. And he smells like summer rain…

But what’s inside Marley isn’t meant for her—or for any human. It belongs to him. To his kind.

As long as this force stays in her body, she’s a living target. A weapon meant to protect…or destroy.

Because now she is the storm.

 What I thought about Storm Chaser

I don't read a lot of YA these days, but this cover totally called to me.  It's gorgeous and the blurb was really interesting.

The first few pages were very much like a popular storm chaser movie but it doesn't take long for things to get moving in a fresh direction. Marley aka Marlena tags along storm chasing with her brother an ends up picking up some serious mojo from the aftermath of a super tornado in the form of energy from another planet.

Energy that causes storms. 

Brae, the owner of the special power is drawn to Marley in more ways than one. One she has his power and then she's a bit of a firecracker. He's trying to do all the right things, although he ends up making mistakes that cost them.  I really did like the world that is built here with this story and I see lots of opportunities for future stories, especially between Marley and Brae and their budding romantic feelings (G-rated) for each other. 

I ended up enjoying this story quite a bit.  The story was entertaining, moved along quite nicely, the characters are interesting, the world is well-constructed while still leaving some room for new craziness.  Storm Chaser ends in a tiny cliffhanger that reveals Brae true nature to more people, which is guaranteed to cause all sorts of trouble.

 Overall, I'm really glad I picked up this YA alien story and it was definitely worth reading. Definite kudos for an awesome cover!

Review: 5 Stars for Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six: A Novel of Thrilling Suspense by Lisa Unger

What could be more restful, more restorative, than a weekend getaway with family and friends? An isolated luxury cabin in the woods, complete with spectacular views, a hot tub and a personal chef. Hannah’s loving and generous tech-mogul brother found the listing online. The reviews are stellar. It’s his birthday gift to Hannah and includes their spouses and another couple. The six friends need this trip with good food, good company and lots of R & R, far from the chatter and pressures of modern life.

But the dreamy weekend is about to turn into a nightmare. A deadly storm is brewing. The rental host seems just a little too present. The personal chef reveals that their beautiful house has a spine-tingling history. And the friends have their own complicated past, with secrets that run blood deep. How well does Hannah know her brother, her own husband? Can she trust her best friend? And who is the new boyfriend, crashing their party? Meanwhile, someone is determined to ruin the weekend, looking to exact a payback for deeds long buried. Who is the stranger among them?

 Amazon | Apple Books | Barnes & Noble | Books-A-Million 


 What I thought about Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six

It was the title of the book and the blurb that made me itch to read this book. There's something about that title that just screams this is all going to get crazy and it does!

Our six cabin occupants are:  Hannah and her husband Bruce, Hannah's brother Mako/Mikey/Mickey and his wife Liza and Hannah's friend Cricket (who also happens to have hooked up with Mako) and her new boyfriend Joshua.  It does take a number of chapters to get this all straight in my mind, and there's another parallel story being told as well.  So at the start, I wasn't quite sure what was going on, but things moved rather quickly and I liked that very much.

There's a weird vibe that starts right at the beginning of this book when DNA test kits are mysteriously found around the Christmas tree.  It's a deliciously wicked and suspenseful feeling as they reluctantly head off to their vacation cabin six months later.

Once at the cabin, an incoming storm provides additional tension to the setting. Things really get crazy and serious. It wasn't until almost the end of the story that I put all the pieces together in my mind, and I just loved that I remained guessing for most of the story. I thought the author did an excellent job of telling this story, and the DNA aspect was refreshing and timely.  

There's also a few red herrings thrown in for good measure and I did like how the motivations of the crime was revealed. I may have even held my breath in a few places, and I was very pleased with how everything turned out, even months later.

I really, really enjoyed this story and the characters, even though they weren't all likeable.  There was a fabulous build up of tension that had me finishing this in just a couple of days, even though the beginning is a bit tough because of multiple points of view and not knowing the characters yet. This was one of those books that I read whenever I had a free minute because I needed to know what was going to happen to the six in the cabin.

I would be remiss in forgetting to mention Henry, who brings a certain redemption to this story that was perfectly placed.  I think what I liked the most about this story was how it was told and seeing how all the pieces fit together at the end.  It definitely has something to say about blood being thicker than water, and how family doesn't always mean blood relatives.  I loved the ending. 

So overall, this was a 5 star read for me this year.  This book made my head happy with its complexity and themes.  Secluded Cabin Sleeps Six will definitely be on my "favorites of 2022" list.

Review: Something in the Heir by Suzanne Enoch


One of Publishers Weekly’s Top 10 Romances of the Fall!

New York Times bestseller, Suzanne Enoch takes a delightful new path in her joyful historical romantic comedy, Something in the Heir.

Smart, capable heiress Emmeline Pershing will do anything to keep her beloved home; and all it takes is an arranged marriage and a teeny white lie to fulfill her family’s silly inheritance rules. But now her little fib means that she and her completely unsuspecting husband are going to inherit big — and very messy! —trouble.

Emmeline and William Pershing have enjoyed a perfectly convenient marriage for eight years. Their relationship is a seamless blend of their talents and goals. They’ve settled into separate, well-ordered lives beneath the same roof, and are content to stay that way—or so Emmeline thinks. And if William has secretly longed for a bit more from the woman he adores, he’s managed to be content with her supreme skills as a hostess and planner, which has helped him advance his career.

Then when Emmeline’s grandfather, the reclusive Duke of Welshire, summons them both for his birthday celebration and demands they bring their two little angelic children, William is stunned to discover that his very proper wife invented not one, but two heirs to fulfill the agreement for living at Winnover. But surely if Emmeline and William team up and borrow two cherubs to call their own, what could go wrong? Enter George, age 8, and Rose, 5—the two most unruly orphans in Britain.

As the insanity unfolds, their careful, professional arrangement takes some surprisingly intimate turns as well. Perhaps it takes a bit of madness to create the perfect happily ever after.

What I thought about Something in the Heir

It’s been a while since I’ve read a historical, and the blurb for this looked suspenseful and interesting, so I thought I would give it a try. 

Will and Emmeline married to fulfill the requirements to save Emmeline’s treasured estate Winnover Hall. They also have to conceive a child within 5 years, to keep the estate. When Will and Emmeline’s love life didn’t produce an heir, Emmy needs to come up with something. That something was a big lie -- that they had not one but two children. Things get a bit dicey when they are asked to bring the children to meet the relative forcing these conditions on them.

Of course, everyone knows how one lie begets another, so what we have here are lies, lies and more lies as the story progresses. 

After borrowing two children from the orphanage, they move forward with a plan to continue their deception. There were some interesting things happening here. The children make a contract with Will and Emmeline for the things they want -- to learn to read and write, fencing, and many others. And also a permanent home somewhere when their time is up. But when Rose and George's older brother shows up, he threatens everything they worked for.

There’s definite contrasts in this story, such as the contrast between the rich and poor and what happens when the unfortunate get opportunities they wouldn’t normally have. I really liked some of the social commentary that is woven into the story. 

There's also an interesting dynamic happening with Will and Emmeline. After 8 years of marriage, neither one knows how the other feels about them. Will has nursed a love for Emmeline for the 8 years but believed that she only wanted a marriage of convenience. Emmeline believes that Will married her so he could have a helpmate or partner in his work, but not for any of the other marital benefits. Their love life (or lack thereof) and the misunderstandings between them are very interesting and I would have loved more about that. I also found the pace to be a bit slow and repetitive, but I just had to know how everything turned out! 

There’s a lovely conclusion to the story that I really liked. It’s easy to see what will save them from the lies they’ve told, but it was a very entertaining ride to get to the conclusion. I enjoyed the crazy dichotomy of truth and lies that is somehow appealing and annoying at the same time in this story. And in spite of some predictability, I really did like Emmy, Will, Rose and George’s story.

About the Author

What I thought about Archangel's Resurrection
So this is the 15th book in this series.  It probably wasn't the smartest thing to jump into it at this point, but I adore this author's contemporary writing, and thought this might give me a taste of her well-known and loved paranormal series. Getting involved in a long fantasy series is an investment of time, so I wanted to check it out before I was all-in.

This series deals with powerful archangels.  This story tells the tale of Alexander and Zanaya, who are passionate, powerful, and incendiary in their love for each other.  There's plenty of background to cover as they've been in love for years and years.This did make the story move a bit slow at times.

As with all good romances, there are plenty of hurdles for the lovers to jump over.  There's serious stuff going on there, but I just had to go with the flow since I have not read any of the other books in this series so there were details that I most likely missed. I was intrigued with the story because the writing that I love in the contemporary works came through very well here.  

Overall, I liked the romance and the trials the main characters faced.  I wished I knew some more about this world, but I was able to follow along. There is a very interesting story arc I could see moving to closure in this installment.  So if you are looking for a new fantasy series, this one might interest you.
