The Review

Every book keeps getting better and better! The Review is one of my favorites so far from Annette Mori. The Review starts out as what I would consider a "traditional" romance with the main character trying to figure out if she will ever be able to love again after the death of her wife...then in true Annette Mori fashion she throws in some twists and turns along the way that makes the book completely entertaining and hard to put down.

The Review

Having read Annette Mori’s work before I had high hopes for this latest book. The lady does not disappoint. The Review is a beautifully constructed romance, mystery and character study that had me hooked from page one. Silver, a lesfic writer, holds a competition where the first person to post a review of her new book gets a home cooked dinner with her. She knows full well it will be Jasmine, a fan who has been a great help to her as she slowly comes out of the blackness that engulfed her after the death of her wife. I loved the tentative overtures they made to each other, how they became more to each other. Silver’s guilt about moving on with her life was truly moving and I could understand her. Jasmine had a complicated love life to break away from and this caused them problems too. The lurking menace of a stalker in the background lent a real level of threat to the story and their identity kept me guessing. The various facets of the story were woven so brilliantly and the romantic element tugged at the heart strings. A really accomplished novel worth more than 5 stars....

This is my first book to read of Lacey Schmidt. I thoroughly enjoyed it! The author's attention to detail is amazing. I truly felt like I was in the story. The characters were well developed and you found yourself cheering them on wanting that happy ending for them. To top it off, the book has an Epilogue which completes the book in the best way....

What's not to love about the open water and a little romance? South of Heaven will treat you to both in this tale about shrimp boat captain Kendra Drake falling for her new crewmate, Lindsey Bowen. It was a delight to be transported to the Gulf of Mexico where I could practically feel the Gulf breeze on my skin, smell the salty air, and hear the cries of gulls and water lapping up against the hull of the ship. Even the title and cover artwork will lure you in to the wonderful landscape of this book. This made for a dreamy backdrop to the sweet, slow burn of the romance that grows between Kendra and Lindsey. Each dances around the other, unsure of the consequences of possibly ruining their easy friendship not to mention the potential for unwanted drama aboard the small shrimp boat where the crew not only work together like a well-oiled machine but are also a close-knit family. Every budding relationship is met with challenges and triumphs, but few romances have to weather hurricanes and elusive shrimp. And when the boat docks after a long haul at sea there's nothing better than coming home to family and a good meal. South of Heaven will leave you with those warm fuzzies in its simple and quiet way, so settle in with this crew and enjoy the warmth that you will be enfolded in....

This book is a feel-good, grinning from ear-to-ear kind of story. Kendra takes over her father’s shrimping business and has plans to expand. Her dad asks her to take on the daughter of an old army buddy, Lindsey, who needs to get away for a while and to get some experience on the boat. They are obviously attracted to each other but it takes a while for them to realise it and to act on it. This is a slow burner but it so much better for it. I liked seeing them become closer and their growing attraction was sweet and quite beautiful and oh so hot! They faced perils at sea which had a fair amount of tension and the worry of how the all-male crew would react to their relationship. Lindsey also had the constant worry that her father wouldn’t accept her sexuality. I loved how Ali Spooner chose to deal with it and it made me feel such warmth towards the characters. Lindsey was kind and courageous and completely smitten by Kendra. No-one could doubt their love when they saw the look on her face. Kendra was capable, compassionate and utterly adorable and I’m not surprised her crew loved her. I loved being in their world and following this oh-so romantic story.

Catch to Release

Addison heads a private security firm used to protecting diplomats and politicians. Shay is a lesbian folk musician who needs her protection but is reluctant to take it. Threats keep coming in and when her family is affected she has to agree to Addison’s help. I enjoyed this tense thriller and it certainly kept me wondering right until the end. How Addison and her team dealt with their mission and how Shay slowly came to accept them made for an interesting read. The romantic element was slowly teased out and as both women had issues to deal with before ever being able to commit to someone, it took them time. The last portion of the book had me holding my breath, as the threats became scarier and more immediate. I liked the two main characters a lot and found myself rooting for them. Addison seemed so closed down at the beginning and I felt that Shay’s kind and caring personality really helped her to finally start to live again. The people around them were well written and really made the whole group feel like a family. A really good read and recommended for lovers of crime fiction and lesfic.
