Three Mile Cache
Jen Silver

08/26/2021
Karen McIntosh
I’ve read most of Jen Silver’s full length novels and enjoyed them immensely, so was looking forward to this new novella. She does not disappoint. ‘Three Mile Cache’ may be shorter than her usual work, but she manages to capture so much regardless of the length of the work. Carolyn Wells is an archaeologist and travels the world most of the time. Her relationship with Sydney Detective Inspector Alex Graham suffers as a result. When Alex is wounded in the line of duty and goes to the Australian outback to recover, Carolyn realises just how important their relationship is, and flies there to be with her. But Alex’s wandering eye hasn’t stopped just because she is injured. Is there still enough worth between them? And will they realise how they feel about each other before it is too late? Meanwhile Alex has been poking her nose into some mysterious goings on in the area and she might have bitten off more than she can chew.

I was impressed by how much character development Jen Silver got into this novella. I felt as if I knew these characters so well and wanted to know more. The story started off as a romance, but there was an exciting mystery involved too. It was a good story with interesting characters, in a setting we don’t usually get to read about. I loved the finding out about the Outback and the Flying Doctors Service and, like Jen, I too was a fan of the 80s TV series. A very enjoyable novella.

I was given this ARC to review,...

I have not had the pleasure of reading anything by Ms Hotchkin before. I found this story to be sweet and tender with a ghostly twist with a happy ending. Just right for a quick read....

I liked this story of a DEA Agent Luce Velazequez and her girlfriend Yvette. Ms Marsden writes very, very well. The ending was a shock, totally unexpected and I have to know what happens next! Thankfully this is part of a series and I am looking forward to reading more about Luce and her adventures. I will also be reading other books from Ms. Marsden's stories....

So much fun

Oh my, what a truly delicious tale! I so enjoyed this happy tale of a woman putting right the things most wrong. The ending was every bit as wonderful!
Well done Ms O'Reilly! I am looking forward to the next story!...


The Ultimate Betrayal by Anette Mori

Another excellent read by Annette Mori
Lara is a rich, successful businesswoman. Ten years ago she married the love of her life, Sophia. A few years later Lara opens an office in Seattle where she meets the other love f her life Rachel. Lara manages to keep her lives separate but a few weeks before her 40th birthday, her house of cards comes tumbling down. Now the wives know about each other but what happens next is the real surprise.

I honestly didn't know what to think about the book based on the title. It took me awhile to get into the story but once I was I was hooked through to the end. I couldn't wait to see what happened next. Would Lara manage to save one of her relationships? Would she become the partner she claimed she wanted to be? Or would she continue to disappoint and hurt the one who holds her heart, and who is that? There is lots to discover.

I Love Ms Mori's writing style. She is laid back and easy to read. Her characters aren't just words on a page, they come alive as the story goes on. I really cared about Sophia and Rachel as I became involved in their lives. In spite of such a deep topic there were bits of humor to lighten things. The secondary character of Joy was a delight and I would love to see a follow up book with her as the star.
Great job Ms Mori, Thank you....

Diabolical Suspense
Jasmine is Silver's beta reader and online friend. She helped Silver cope after losing her wife. Now they are spending a weekend together after Jasmine won a contest Silver ran. Jasmine's on again off again girlfriend isn't too happy that she is avoiding her calls and wants to do something to get Jasmine back... Did I mention the creepy stalker or was there two....anyway they aren't happy about Jasmine and Silver's budding relationship either. Trust me, you want to know what happens next.
This is a wonderfully written suspenseful novel by a very talented author. I liked the beautifully developing relationship between Silver and Jasmine. Silver's pain and insecurities are so realistic... I felt myself feeling so sorry for her. I loved how tender and gentle they both were when they slowly advanced their friendship into something more.
The twists are brilliant. I thought it was too easy to figure out who the demented soul was who was determined to cause trouble but it turned out so differently, well played Ms Mori!!
The character of Pretty Preston was positively perfect! He added the much needed comic relief. I've only read a few things by this author, a problem I am correcting and I have to say this is my favourite thus far....
