Beachcomber Gone by Stephanie Queen
4 out of 5stars
Beachcomber Gone is the first book that I have read by Stephanie Queen and it was great even though I was lost because stupid me just jumps into reading a great story in the middle. The characters are great I love the way they play off of each other you could tell they belong together.
PI partners Dane & Shana are ready to tie the knot after years of trying to resist their love affair. But their visit to Shana’s hometown in Australia goes terribly wrong when old enemies track her down. Just when Dane thought they would marry, Shana’s gone…
Dane & Shana travel to Australia so that Dane can meet her family, but they land in a minefield of problems. Shana’s mother is being used as bait by an old enemy Shana helped convict in an old police pension fraud case.
Now the case has been re-opened amid speculation that there was an insider involved. Someone is trying to set Shana up to take the fall. Dane and Shana need to find the dangerous traitor inside her old police department and bring them down to keep Shana out of jail–and to keep her alive.
This is a great story I really enjoyed it now I have to go back to the beginning and read this great story..

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beachcomber Gone was a thrilling 5 star read and book 9 in the Beachcomber Investigations series. Stephanie Queen has once again pulled me right in.

Just when these two are finally taking a step forward by going to meet Shana’s family things take a big twist. Dane takes an important call while in flight to Australia, a call that changes everything.

Someone from the past has their sights set on Shana. They have her mother and are using her as bait to get what they want.

Can Shana prove her innocence in an old case of hers?
Can they save her mother before it’s too late? Can they ever get a HEA?

Shana is a very strong loving woman and I love that about her. Dane is a caring and protective man who would do anything for Shana. We get a great mix of so much in this story, thrilling twists and turns and edge of your seat moments. Secondary characters were great. You can read as a stand alone but I suggest reading from the beginning so you understand the whole story between Shana and Dane. I can’t wait to read more from this series/author.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beachcomber Gone is book 9 in the Beachcomber Investigations series by Stephanie Queen, but it could be read as a stand alone book. I haven’t read the whole series, and I enjoyed this book. The chemistry between Dane and Shana is fun to read, and the book is full of suspense. The pace is quick, so it makes you not want to put it down.
Dane and Shana are finally engaged, and have decided to travel before tying the knot. They went on vacation to Australia, so Dane can meet Shana’s mom. But before they could even land, they found themselves in the middle of a case, and shortly after arriving, Shana is taken. She has become the lead suspect in one of her old cases, and must avoid being framed, while she and Dane work together to solve the case. Such a fun, fast moving book. I highly recommend it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beachcomber Gone: Beachcomber Investigations Book 9: a Romantic Detective Series by Stephanie Queen is a fun, thriller. Dane and Shana travel to meet Shana’s family in Australia. Things go out of control and the situation and people are not always what they seem. I recommend this if you like romance, great dialogue, and some thriller thrown in. I have not read the whole series and this can be read as a standalone. I think that something is lost because reading alone loses the buildup from the other books. I like the two main characters and their relationship. The story is a fast read and I was sorry when it ended. I am planning on reading more from the series since I have enjoyed the books I have read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book 9 in the “Beachcomber Investigations” Series. While it could probably be read as a stand-alone, I think it would be better to read the series in order. There is a common thread and recurring characters in each installment and reading the series will enhance each story.

As with the other books in the series, we follow the M/m on unexpected adventures. This is a story with romance, action, suspense and a little of everything else thrown in. It is a very quick read at about 150 pages but has the weight of a full bodied novel.

The series has been well plotted, characters are well developed and the story ebbs and flows in a way that keeps the reader interested.

I recommend this book, this series and this author.

5 Star
Beachcomber Gone: Beachcomber Investigations Book 9 By Stephanie Queen is the ninth book in the Beachcomber Investigation series. I highly recommend if you haven’t already read the other books in this series you should. I’ve truly enjoyed this whole series and I just love Dane and Shana. This story is about Dane and Shana and them traveling to Australia so Dane can meet Shana’s family. But plans get changed when her mom is used for bait and threats are made. Sometimes things aren’t as they seem. Someone is out to set Shana up. Will they find out whom is responsible before it’s too late? I definitely was on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what happens next. I highly recommend reading this, not only this book but this whole series. I look forward to reading more from this author.

I give Beachcomber Gone: Beachcomber Investigations Book 9: a Romantic Detective Series by Stephanie Queen, 5 stars.
*This review contains spoilers from previous books in the series*

Dane and Shana have finally decided to get married. But before they do, Shana wants to take him to Australia to meet her family. But it isn’t the vacation they hoped. Before they even touch down, they are warned of trouble. She has enemies who know of her trip and are waiting for her. The only people besides her family that know of her trip are her former coworkers from the police force. Could one of them have betrayed her? What exactly will they do if they get her? Can Dane keep her safe?

This book has all the action you would expect if you have read any of the books in this series. But this time they are in a different country. It fits right in with the other books in the series, yet it is different so you won’t feel like you’ve read it before. Plus Dane and Shana are a great main couple. Not to mention that we meet more new characters. I would really love to see more of Shana’s mother in future books.

I highly recommend this book if you like your action with a side of romance. I for one could not put it down once I started.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nothing puts the brakes on a prewedding visit to your hometown like finding out what you thought was a closed case has been reopened because of a possible insider. Shana wants Dane to meet her family before they get married but Murphy’s Law is in full effect and everything seems to get worse.
I felt so frustrated and angry for all the curves thrown at Shana and Dane. I love these characters and I just want them to be happy. But then again, that doesn’t make for a very interesting story series. Danger around every turn in Australia? Super exciting and interesting! Each character is explored and has depth. I learn more about the couple in each story and the world building is fantastic. Attention to detail and in character arcs is brilliant. Kevin gives me creepy chills, Shana makes me want to cultivate my game face, and Dane’s deep affection for Shana makes me just want to hug him.
This could absolutely be a stand alone novel but I do not recommend it. This entire series is worth every second of read time.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beachcomber Gone is the NINTH book in Stephanie Queen’s Beachcomber Investigations series! Nine books of goodness! You can reach each and every one of them as a standalone as they all have a ‘case’ that gets solved! I have read couple of other books in the series and enjoyed them tremendously and have the rest already downloaded and I have to admit that I also ventured out to Stephanie’s other series (Scotland Yard Exchange)…
So, Beachcomber Gone is another one of Dane and Shana stories and this time it hits close to home as it affects them personally! They get forewarned of the danger when they are on the flight to Australia (to visit Shana’s family) but unfortunately you cannot just parachute off the commercial flight and of course you cannot leave your family in danger (it is Shana’s mother who is being threatened…).
I love the chemistry between Shana and Dane, it is actually something beyond chemistry … it is sort of an addiction … Shana is Dane’s Achilles’ heel … He is one complex man and it makes the reading even more enjoyable! No simple bam-wham-mam … no no … it is a real dangerous story with not the usual backup and they don’t know who to trust and who not and … well, let’s just say that it was another brilliant instalment of the series and I wonder if I will last ‘til the day those two get married or will I have a heart attack first!
