Scarlet Fever: A Crime ThrillerScarlet Fever: A Crime Thriller by David Stever
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This thriller had me reeling immediately and I couldn’t devour the pages quickly enough. This was the first book of Stever’s I have read and I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery. The characters were strong and well developed. There were plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing. There are simply not adequate words to explain how great I found this book except to say I am downloading the next in the series as we speak. For any mystery fan, this is a must read!

Shattered Melody: A romantic suspense novella by Amy McKinley – Review by Heather Lovelace

Shattered MelodyShattered Melody by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

McKinley masterfully weaves this tale of romance and suspense and somehow fits quite a punch into a short number of pages. I continue to believe that McKinley has firmly established herself as a must read author. This novella is certainly not an exception to that opinion. My only complaint is that the story could have easily been double or triple the number of pages. I was sad to read the last page. But so much was said in the limited number of pages in my hand that I was extremely surprised and loved every minute of it.

The Fisher Men X My Heart (The Fisher Men Book 1) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey – Review by Heather Lovelace

The Fisher Men X My HeartThe Fisher Men X My Heart by Rebel Nicks O’Dey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was completely unprepared to love this book as much as I do. I knew I would enjoy it. The cover is fantastic and the synopsis is clever. O’Dey is certainly gifted. With effortlessness (it seems) she weaves a tale over a span of several years, utilizing several POV, from adolescence to adulthood and maintains the reader’s attention without demeaning or belittling any emotion or experience regardless of character or time. The story transitions easily, moves quickly. I felt O’Dey masterfully broached the difficult scenario at the root of the complicated relationship/friendship at the center of the book. The utilization of the interview notes interspersed certainly lent a depth to the story I wasn’t anticipating. It was emotional, funny, sexy… you think you know who the ultimate choice will be. You may second guess whether you guessed right. But regardless you won’t be disappointed with how the story wraps up. Especially since this is just the beginning of our journey with the Fisher Men. Absolutely loved it!

Sims knocks this one out of the park. Just when I think I know how the story is going to develop I’m proven wrong in the best possible way. From beginning to end this page turner kept me glued to my tablet reading as fast as I could. Loved every single word.
