This genre was not my typical style, however the author did a great job building suspense and intrigue. The characters were well crafted and I found an interest in rooting for the good guys. This book was an easy read and hard to put down. I recommend this book for anyone who likes action mixed with love. It’s totally worth the readers time and I hope to see more from the author.

In this second book of the series, Tallie is searching for a missing girl but doing so might bring up secrets from Tallies past. While I believe it is possible to read this book as a standalone, having not read the first book, I did feel like I was missing a few details about Tallie and her past. Missing those few details however did not take away from the overall story of the second book nor did it hurt the relatability of the characters. The author did a tremendous job of building relationships between characters while also giving twists and turns that were unpredictable. Great story, looking forward to reading book and more in the series.

Revenge Never Rests starts right where Secrets Never Die ends. Tallie Brown is trying to figure out herself (and her relationship with Jackson) with the revelation of her birth family from the last book. The story follows her in gaining a better understanding of herself while trying to find out the mystery of who is taking previous military personnel. Once her father is taken she is determined to find out who is behind it. All the clues are there for you to determine who is the mastermind. All questions are answered at the conclusion of this book and the ending is highly satisfying. I highly recommend reading this series!

Picking up from where book 1 leaves off, Tallie has discovered why she had so many skills geared towards disappearing and staying hidden. She has also discovered a passion for seeking out lost individuals to bring them home. One night, she gets an Amber Alert and is immediately on the hunt. Her quest for the missing girl leads to some painful truths and lessons regarding her family.

This novel focuses on Tallie discovering that her past appears to be linked to a set of disappearances that have remained unsolved, and now someone she just found existed is on that same list.

Loads of twists and turns, yet again from this author. Very well thought out plot, presented in an incredible way. Great characters and heart. Lots of mystery and suspense and some romance.

This story is amazing… Tallie Brown is by far my favorite character yet. She’s been through trying times and as a strong female lead character, she fights with everything she has. Despite all of the hard life she was forced to lead, she makes the best of what she’s got. She uses her talents for good and keeps going.

I love how involved the author is with her military knowledge and the way that she conveys the story. Her acknowledgements are also heartfelt and I appreciate it so much. She did an amazing job and I look forward to reading more of her work.

This was a book with constant twists and turns and so many surprises. Tallie Brown has finally learned who her real family is and is on a mission to meet the man that is her father when he goes missing. This is a fast paced page turner that instantly pulls you in. Each chapter follows and different characters perspective and it is very easy connecting with each one. I wasn’t expecting the ending but it made it all the more perfect.

Revenge Never Rests is the second book in the Tallie Brown Suspense Series. I did read the first book so I felt that I had all the necessary backstory for this book. If you haven’t read the first book in the series (Secrets Never Die), I highly recommend doing so before diving into this one. Laurie Lewis continues Tallie’s story shortly after the events in the first book. There are several returning characters in this book and, again, Lewis delivers unusual yet realistic, humanized characters. This book follows Tallie in the search for her missing father, Cai Kaswell, along with several other missing persons. While this book has many twists and turns like the first book, I felt this one was a little faster paced, which I enjoyed. Overall, this book is on par, if not higher, than the first book! I look forward to reading more books by Laurie Lewis!

Tallie Brown has discovered that she is not who she was raised to believe she was. The woman who raised her taught her how to simply disappear. In this suspenseful book, Tallie must use all of her skills to figure out how people are disappearing never to be seen again. I was hooked from the very beginning.

In a continuation from the first book in this series, the story brings us back to where it was left off from the first. Learning how strong of a woman Tallie is, despite her unusual and mysterious upbringing, she continues on her own mission in seeking the truth. As she recently discovers who her father, General Cai Kaswell, is considered missing and embarks on a journey to find him and get more questions answered.
Just as the first book, this book is such a great read and keeps you on your toes with action and mystery. Not only is the action and suspenseful aspects of the book amazing but the concept of friendship and valuing its integrity. Such a great series!

This is the second book I have read by Laurie Lewis and is the second book in the Tallie Brown Suspense. A continuation of the first book Secrets Never Die, following the loss of her mother and learning about the secrets that sent her on the run for most of her life.
I enjoyed this fast-paced suspense book! A lot of the stuff in this book felt like it was ripped from today’s headlines. The action and intrigue really drew me in, and I found it hard to put down. It’s a race against time as Tallie Brown is trying to find her father whom she recently discovered and is now missing. One of the biggest twists of the first book is that her mother Julia wasn’t her biological mother and kidnapped her. Despite the dubious circumstances in which she was raised. Tallie learns of a missing girl that she uses the skills she learned while on the run with her mother to help find not only the missing girl but all the missing people. Tallie can thank Julia for everything she taught her about tracking, self-defense, etc. as it comes in handy as the story progresses.

This is the first book I have read by Laurie Lewis. The synopsis drew me in but from page one I was hooked. At first, I was very confused on what was going on and honestly thought I started the 2nd book first by mistake.
It begins in Julia’s point of view, her being in 2014 but still running and hiding from the secrets of her past in 1993. Her one thing that she thought she could do, raising a normal child as a fugitive, until her name starts getting flagged and she receives a call from her handler. After seven seemingly normal years everything comes back in a rush leaving Tallie all alone with the mystery of who her mother was.
What is the Mogadishu incident? What does Julia have to do with it? Why have they been on the run most of Tallies’ life? The world that the author builds submerge the reader in the world. Drawing you into the story and wanting to keep reading to learn the secrets that led to Julia’s death. I made it through this book in one day and can’t wait to start the second book, Revenge Never Rests, to see what happens next in Tallie Brown’s story.

This novel is full of action and suspense. One of those types of stories that will keep you going from beginning to end. Tallie Brown is a girl whose life was led in how her mother deemed and when her mother passes away, Tallie is left to pick up the pieces where she can. As far as she can remember, she has moved from place to place and after her mother’s untimely death, around her 20s, she has found herself in the Pacific Northwest.
Another character, Jackson James, a journalist has made a big mistake and must now pay for it. In the midst of changing a storyline, his path is led to Cutler’s Ridge, a failing Virginia coal town and ends up meeting Tallie. Both loners and led by untrustworthy pasts have intertwined their paths. As truths and mysteries are unraveled, unexpected circumstances occur and nothing is stopping them from discovering what they need to know. Great read and keeps you engaged in what will happen next.

This book is set shortly after the first book in the series. A lot happens in the first book. To understand the characters better, read the first book before this one.

Tallie Brown is still grieving the loss of her mother as well as what will never be (the loss of her biological mother and sister) when she gets news that the father she cannot claim, Cai Kaswell, is missing she jumps at the chance to find him. Seeing as Tallie has a unique skill set, Major Norris knows that she will be a huge asset and welcomes her aboard. This mission brings Tallie into a bigger conspiracy than they thought. Not only is Cai missing, so are many others.

The clues bring the group to Mexico where Tallie is introduced to Burke, the agent on the case. Instantly Tallie does not trust him. She has to learn to work with him while trying to keep things from getting personal for her. Nothing is adding up and Tallie doesn’t know who to trust.

Memories of Tallie’s past with her mother keep her on her toes. She was raised to look at everything and trust no one but it’s hard when it’s your fathers life on the line.

She also has to overcome her feelings of not being good enough if she wants to keep her new found relationship alive.

This book was great. It sucks you in right from the beginning. Compared to the first book it is much more fast paced. I can’t wait to see what the author has in store next time.

This is book 2 in a series. I did not read book 1. While it was good as a stand alone, I think it would be better for the backstories to read book 1 first. In this book we meet Tallie. She is a strong woman character who is on the search for the answer to the disappearance of a missing girl and then of a General Kaswell. Jackson and Tallie have a strong connection and have to make a decision as to whether they should work together or separately. This happens just as she discovered who her real father is.
Throughout this story, there is intrigue, conspiracy and high action. It kept my attention and was a good read on a really long car ride over the holidays. If you like this type of genre, you would rate it much higher than a three.

I truly enjoyed this imaginative story as we follow Isaac on his captivating adventures. When we find ourselves drudging our way through the everyday mundane, life will unexpectedly surprise us. Isaac finds this out first hand when he is dragged into his favorite childhood story. He finds himself on a series of adventures with danger and excitement around every corner.

Reading this book was a much need splash of color and adventure to help me get through my own “everyday mundane”.

This book is the second in a series. I did not read the first book, and I was able to follow along just fine. There was some struggle to get everyone straight, but nothing I wouldn’t have expected. My favorite part of this book was that it was clean and didn’t have the F word on every page. That was incredibly refreshing especially paired with a great story! Tallie Brown is a strong female character with completely relatable doubts and issues. I enjoyed hearing her thoughts and reservations. This book is worth the time to read. I look forward to reading more from this author!

This is the follow up story to Secrets Never Die. I definately recommend reading that book first as this book picks up straight from where that one ends.
This story is such a gripping rollercoaster of a read full of even more secrets and lies than the first book. The author does an amazing job with this story making it a gripping read right from the beginning.

Tallie is back and struggling to come to terms with everything that has happened to her. Not only is she dealing with the grief of losing her mother (or so she thought) she also has to deal with the lies and deception that surrounded her life and took her away from her real family. When Tallie’s real father goes missing she is asked to use the skills she learnt to help find him.

As the story progresses we learn more about Tallie’s past and her relationship with the woman she thought was her mother. Now Tallie is on her own and surrounded by people who she doesn’t know if she can trust or not and I have to admit my opinions on those people changed several times and I was in for a few surprises.

This is a great mystery Suspense story that will keep you hooked from the first page to the last. The twists and turns are so good you don’t see it coming until it happens which is an amazing thing in a book.

Definately read the first book and then prepare to have your mind blown when you dive into this one to continue Tallie’s story.

I dove head first into this book. I did not read the first, but you do not need to in order to read this book. However, I plan on going and reading the first as soon as I can get my hands on it because WOW! This book was intense to the very last page. The plot and characters suck you in immediately and I found it difficult to put down.

The romance between Tallie and Jackson is one that gives you hope along the way. It was also a very relatable relationship. If you enjoy a good suspense, mystery, and romance novel, then this one is for you. Whether you pick up this one first or you pick up the first in the series, you need to get your hands on this novel.

Tallie has been running for most of her life which has given her certain skills which is now helping her trying to locate a missing girl but will trying to find this lost child bring up secrets from the past which Tallie is not ready to open or seek.

This book in the second in the series and I have to confess that I had not read the first book, although this can be read as a stand-alone book, I believe I was missing certain important information by not reading the first book, but this did not distract from the overall story.

I loved the character of Tallie, how broken she was but had it in her heart to try and help the thousands of missing people with her history and skills. I loved the twists in the story and the relationships between all the characters, the story was engaging and drawn me, I could not put it down.

I can’t wait to read the first book in this series and other books going forward.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Revenge Never Rests is the 2nd book in the Tallie Brown series. It picks up shortly after the first book finished, which I was happy for. Tallie had a bomb of information dropped on her in the end of the first book, and she is still sorting it all out. There is a bit of struggle, as she tries to compartmentalize her life. The book had a good recap of the information from book one, although not the full story… enough as a refresher. Likely couldn’t be enjoyed without reading the first book. This book was much more clear, and written better than the first. I really like the characters of these series and the author did a good job of representing Tallie’s (and sometimes Jackson’s) feelings. There is so much suspense in this book, and it is action packed. I like that Tallie continued to refer back to her childhood teachings, despite the new heartbreak and inner struggle she is weighing. This book kept me on the edge of my seat. I look forward to more from the author.

Secrets Never Die is the first book in the Tallie Brown series. The book is pretty complex and has a complicated storyline. In the beginning I was really confused, and struggled to follow the story. The characters don’t seem to be related, and made it hard to understand what was going on. However, stick it out… it comes together, and all makes sense in the end. Still, a very complex story, but it was really good. I didn’t really like how Jackson’s story was revealed… the whole book, it seemed like we were missing details from a previous story. There was a lot of references to a previous event without much back story. Tallie is a really amazing girl, with so many skills and a tough life. I felt bad for her but also was very impressed by her. I hope the 2nd book continues the relationships that were developed in the end of this book. First read by this author, but I will be reading more.

What Actually Happened to Isaac Moore is a fantastic fantasy novel that gives you everything you expect in a fantasy novel. You have pirates, magical creatures, far away lands, and battles.

This is the first book I’ve read from this author and her writing style surprised me. I love a good fantasy story but this author exceeded all my expectations. She wrote so much detail into this story it felt like I was the one in the story. I was so addicted to this book it only took me a few hours to devour this epic story. I’m so excited to see what she will write about next.

Isaac loves being a sailor. He loves what he does but he also loves his daily meal. Isaac doesn’t believe in fairytales but when a cute little fairy comes to him he can’t say no. He finds himself in his very own story that he thought he would never have in his life. Isaac doesn’t even know what to expect but he is up for the challenge even for the most feared Snowman. Will Isaac get everything accomplished so he can go home or will he be in the adventure for a long time?

What Actually Happened to Isaac Moore starts out as a classic pirate story of a fairy tale treasure in another world. Then the story is taken in a completely different direction with the appearance of a fairy looking to get back to her world and needing Isaac’s help.

It is truly a refreshing engaging story with many twists and turns that I was not expecting. The amount of detail in this book is perfect to get the point across and brings about distinct images of the creature and or place. I could not put this book down because I needed to find out what happened to Isaac Moore!
