My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about mystery. Sorrel James is a photographer just wanting to take some pictures of some geese with a friend. When her friend doesn’t show up, she begins to get suspicious. With police officer Reed, she starts to investigate. Can they find John before it’s too late?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Sorrel stubborn but kind underneath or Reed determined but caring underneath.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like the snow white birds against the vibrant sunrise bold and beautiful and magical. Or the geese flying off with its sounds so vivid its as if you’re actually there and for a sense of wonder.
The use of suspense was drawn out to perfection with a sense of mystery from the start and events revealed slowly to make you keep reading to find out what happened. I also liked John with his little habits like the decorations and the closed shop, small details creating a sense of unease. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars

Blood Relations is the second book in “The Sorrel Janes Mysteries’ series by Lonna Enox. This is the first book that I have read by Ms. Enox, so I really didn’t know what to expect going into the story- but lets face it, I love a good mystery and that’s what I was hoping to find when I grabbed myself a copy of this book. What I found was a cosy mystery- detailed and descriptive, with all the ingredients needed to make it a captivating read as there was just the right amount of suspense, drama, and intrigue.
Ms. Enox packs a lot into her story- there is quite a lot happening with lots to ‘uncover’. I enjoyed meeting the characters who added quite a lot of personality to the story. Sorrel is very independent, with a strong sassy streak. She’s quite the investigator, too. Add Det. Chris Reed to the mix, and the ‘case’ gets quite interesting.
I will definitely be going back to read book one, before jumping into the third book. What will Sorrel gets up to next?

Thank you, Ms. Enox!

I give Blood Relations by Lonna Enox, 5 stars.
**This review may contain spoilers from book one in the series.**

Sorrel is now settled and happy in the small town of Saddle Gap. Her business is open and she has a good set of friends to depend on. Her mentor, John, tells her of a festival that would be perfect for photographers like they are, and she lets herself be talked into it, agreeing to meet him there. But he isn’t there when she arrives. She is not worried at first, but as time passes, she gets a bad feeling. What does she find instead? A dead body in a preservation area. Can Sorrel and Reed figure out what happened to John? Not to mention, who is the dead body? Sorrel feels compelled to search for answers, but things are never as they seem…

I loved book one and was so happy to read another in the series. The first book was great and I loved the characters. This book did not disappoint in the slightest. In fact, I finished it in one night! The whodunit part of books are always my favorite. I love to be kept guessing and I had no idea how this one was going to end. Then there Sorrel and Reed. These are two stubborn people who have difficulty trusting others. But at the same time, they work great together. Then of course there are the secondary characters. I’m so happy they are back, I love them! Oh and did I mention another cat! That right there is the cherry on top. Not to mention that she tells the cats they’re in charge any time she leaves. Such a cat mom thing right there!

I digress. If you like cozy mysteries with lots of action and some parts that just make you laugh, this book is for you. It can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading book 1 first since they are both incredible.

Blood Relations by Lonna Enox is the second book of the Sorrel Jane’s Mysteries series.

Sorrel has been through so much since she left Houston and started her life over in Saddle Gap, which you can read about in the first book. They adventures continue in this book and I have a feeling there will be more in the future.

Sorrel and Reed have quite an intriguing and complicated relationship. I have my hopes about them and looking forward to the next book to see if there is any chance I’m right.

This series isn’t one I would searched for on my own, but I saw the synopsis and decided to give it a try and I’m so gl a’s d I did. I love these characters and looking forward to the next book.

This continues the story of Sorrel and her new friends in Saddle Gap. Things are going well for her, her shop is doing great and life is good. Until she goes to meet John (who is like a father to her). They were supposed to meet for a week of photography but John doesnt arrive.
Sorrel knows something is wrong as John would never just not turn up.

So with the help of Reed they embark on a journey of secrets, deceptions and lies to find out what happened to John and why.

I loved this story. It is full of twists and turns you don’t see coming and the characters are so well written you cant help but feel their emotions.

Blood Relations is the followup to The Last Dance by Lonna Enox. I loved the book, but found it pretty complex. There is a lot going on, and you aren’t quite sure how it all fits together. After finishing it, I almost need to read it again to understand how it all works together. I love how well Enox write mysteries. You truly don’t know how everything is tied together or will end until the very end. The book didn’t end the way I wanted it to, but it still was very good! The end made me tear up a bit, as its very sweet. The main characters Sorrel and Reed have a love hate relationship and I love seeing their relationship grow. This could probably be read as a stand alone, but I don’t recommend skipping the first book. The characters and setting and whole dynamic is laid out in the first book. Highly recommend both to anyone who loves a good mystery without the gore.

****
BLOOD RELATIONS is the second book in the Sorrel Janes’ cozy mystery series. The author does an amazing job of filling in any blank spots through the use of storytelling and flashbacks.

The writing is dynamic and I was fully engaged in the story from beginning to end. There were times that I got bogged down by too much description, but when that sentence or paragraph finished up, I had a beautiful vision or what was actually going on.

This is one of those series that has a timeless storyline and could go on for many more books. I will be reading them all.

I recommend the book and the series.
