The Crocodile Makes No Sound (The Lord Hani Mysteries Book 2) by N.L. Holmes – Review by Heather Lovelace

The Crocodile Makes No Sound (Lord Hani Mysteries #2)The Crocodile Makes No Sound by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Murder mystery meets ancient Egypt again in this second novel in the Lord Hani series by Holmes. I love the level of detail she provides in these novels and ate up every word. The imagery is vivid and the mystery unfolds naturally. You feel as though, once again, you are walking alongside Hani. This history and mystery buff loved every page. I cannot wait to get my hands on book three.

Accepted (Rhodes Family Book 2) by Lisa Wood – Review by Heather Lovelace

AcceptedAccepted by Lisa Wood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I will immediately start by saying for me I’m not sure I would have connected to the story without having first read the previous book in the series. That said, this book was an easy read. The storyline in general was very emotional, maybe more than I anticipated. You anticipate explicit scenes to be part of this book just from the synopsis. However, that aside, the emotional struggle was what really connected. A quick and easy read that definitely was set up to continue in a third book.

The Dating ItineraryThe Dating Itinerary by Brooke Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love picking up books and just knowing in your gut you are going to love every page. And this one definitely did that for me. I found myself anticipating what might happen, guessing how it would all unfold, and LOVING reading how the story proceeded. The main characters – fantastic, hilarious, real. I found myself laughing out loud quite a bit at the all too real scenarios in each chapter. I thoroughly enjoyed this romcom and will gladly pick it back up for another read very soon.

PERFECT ALWAYS by Tricia Copeland – Review by Heather Lovelace

Perfect AlwaysPerfect Always by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have loved Copeland’s writing for a while and when I saw she was coming out with another “Perfect” tale I knew I had to read it. I was most definitely not disappointed. Chloe is a really fun character to read and connect to. The ever popular small town vs big city debate certainly plays a large role in this storyline. But overall it comes down to what the heart wants and who the heart wants. Copeland’s characters always have a way of sneaking in and grabbing my attention. This book will be one I will go back to enjoy many times over. Thank you so much, Ms. Copeland!

Secure Again (Chase Security Series #2) by R.L. Dunn – Review by Heather Lovelace

Secure Again (Chase Security Series Book 2)Secure Again by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another nail biter from Dunn! I really appreciate how she weaves suspense with romance while being respectful of both genres. Her books are written in such a way as they can be read and enjoyed as standalone. However I enjoy seeing the depth of the Chase agency and finding how each character introduced works within the ranks. Each story delves into a new characters and new situation. This book has a surprising small town feel with all sorts of unexpected drama and risk. I loved Elizabeth and felt an immediate pull to her. Loved this book and look forward to reading the next in the series.

It Comes From Within (House Valdis Book 2) by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Heather Lovelace

It Comes From Within (House Valdis #2)It Comes From Within by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Valkyrie continues to impress with her ability to weave an involved storyline with complex characters and not lose track of the big picture. This continuation from book one definitely picks up where the first ended and is best appreciated if read in series order. You won’t fully appreciate the brilliance of the author’s words without book one – and brilliance is what you find in these pages. I love how Valkyrie has grounded these characters even within the fantasy/paranormal genre. Go ahead and pick up the origin story and book one when you grab this book. Once you start I promise you will want it all.

The Body Collector (Bad Boys of Space, #3)The Body Collector by Landra Graf
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This sci-fi romance was action packed and fast paced. Graf really did a great job weaving this story together and putting two extremely strong characters at the helm. I enjoyed reading this story and this was one that I found I raced through without even meaning to. Really enjoyable read and one I will recommend to others.

Rescued by Valan (The Pirates of Barra: Highland Raiders, #2)Rescued by Valan by Jennifer Siddoway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a good historical adventure/romance. And I LOVE when there is an accent involved. I can always hear the lovely brogue in my head but cannot replicate it on my own. Regardless I thought this was an exciting, extremely well written adventure that held my attention from the very first page. Exciting, passionate, and action packed, this book had my attention immediately. I loved this book and cannot wait to read more in this universe.

HIGH FLYER (Verdant String) by Michelle Diener – Review by Heather Lovelace

High Flyer (Verdant String, #4)High Flyer by Michelle Diener
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a fast paced read! I knew from the first chapter I was going to really enjoy this book. A bit sci fi, a bit fantasy, a bit of romance – just a very cool mix of themes and so action packed I was done before I realized I’d even really started. I didn’t know when I picked this up that it was part of a series but I reads great on its own. I look forward to going back to read the rest of the series to explore this world in greater detail. A great book and one I will gladly recommend.

DEVIL’S CLAW (A Logan McKenna Mystery Book 3) by Valerie Davisson – Review by Heather Lovelace

Devil's Claw: Logan Book 3 (The Logan McKenna Series)Devil’s Claw: Logan Book 3 by Valerie Davisson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This series continues to capture my attention and draw me in immediately. To fully appreciate the depth and development of the main character, you should read this in series order. However it is not necessary to follow the story or enjoy it. Logan has found herself in the middle of another thrilling situation and I couldn’t walk away from this book without finding out what the last page held. I’m thoroughly enjoying this series and look forward to seeing how the series will continue. Definitely recommended reading.
