Reunited by Danger by Carol Post



MY REVIEW:

I am not ashamed to admit it – I really enjoy Love Inspired Suspense novels even if some consider mass market books to be inferior. I love the way the authors always seem to manage to create interesting characters with whom I can easily connect and also put together a suspense filled romance that keeps me on my toes until it ends. Once again Carol J. Post has met those goals.

It is bad enough when a former classmate is murdered at her ten-year high school reunion but it quickly becomes evident that someone wants a number of the victim’s friends to meet the same fate and that includes police officer Amber Kingston. She and Detective Caleb Lyon, another former classmate, work together to discover who is responsible  before more classmates die. Will they solve the mystery on time?

“Reunited by Danger” is a fast-moving, suspense filled tale that I read in one sitting. With the perfect blend of suspense and romance the book is filled with unexpected twists and surprises around every corner and is enhanced by a strong message of faith. This Love Inspired Suspense novel was just the right choice for a relaxing yet entertaining evening. I definitely recommend it and this author’s other books.

Deep Waters by Jessica R. Patch



MY REVIEW:

“Deep Waters” is the second novel I’ve read by Jessica Patch and it has been confirmed – I must read each and every one of her books. Not only does this author live in my general part of the country but she has a definite talent with words that make me want to keep turning the pages. Unfortunately that means I reach the end much too quickly and have to wait for her next book.

Character development and dialogue are nearly perfect as far as I’m concerned. An excellent balance of romance and suspense is relieved by a touch of humor, something I always appreciate. The plot moves at a quick pace with escalating danger and suspense as well as secrets and some surprising twists.

I particularly enjoyed learning more about sea turtles and the setting made me wish for another visit to the ocean. “Deep Waters” has everything I look for in a suspense novel and I would recommend it to those who enjoy good, clean suspense with a message of faith interwoven throughout the story.

Final Verdict by Jessica Patch



MY REVIEW:

Jessica R. Patch is a new-to-me author but I can guarantee that I plan to read more of her books. I found her writing to be concise and intelligent with just the right blend of suspense, humor, and romance, with a large dose of faith mixed in. It’s also nice to know that she’s from my corner of the world.

The characters were perfect. I found both Beckett and Aurora to be people I would like to know, flawed but with great integrity. And the plot! Well, it was one that kept me on edge from beginning to end. There were so many twists and turns that I found it difficult to decide just who was at fault. An exciting read until the very end, “Final Verdict” was the kind of book I love when reading suspense. As I said earlier, I will definitely be reading more by this author!

Buried Memories by Carol J. Post



MY REVIEW:

I honestly do no know how the author was able to cram so much content between the covers of this relatively short novel! There is suspense – boy is there suspense! There is also a pretty good romance too. The romance and suspense are tied together nicely with some great characterization, an excellent plot, and plenty of faith.

I love stories in which old friends are reunited and fall in love especially when the hero is as well-rounded and supportive as Tyler. Of course Tyler is not without his own set of problems but I liked the way that he and Nicki helped each other overcome not only physical danger but deep seated emotional issues as well.

“Buried Memories” is a book you will want to read in one sitting. I know I didn’t want to put it down for even a minute. Carol J. Post is a pro when it comes to writing engaging romantic suspense. I know I want to read more by this author!
