Girl Trap (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery)
by Cynthia Hamilton

Another wonderful, suspenseful read by this talented author. As soon as I started reading this story I couldn’t put it down, I found myself turning pages quickly to find out what was going to happen next. I really liked the fact that both Mike and Madeline had their own case to work on this time but I also feel torn because I think they are better together. I have really become invested in these two characters and love reading about mysteries they solve and the trouble they find themselves in along the way. I highly recommend this book.

Furbidden Attraction: A Cursed Romance (Raven Falls Cursed Romances Book 1) by R. O’Leary – Review by Heidi Eich Woodring

Furbidden Attraction: A Cursed RomanceFurbidden Attraction: A Cursed Romance by R. O’Leary
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Furbidden Attraction: A Cursed Romance is the first book in the Raven Falls Cursed Romance series. I liked this read and shifters aren’t normally what I read. The author did an amazing job drawing me in and making me want to read more. Jack and Louisa are the main characters in the story. Louisa is a strong character even though she has been through so much but it does not stop her for standing up for herself. This book has adventure, ghosts, monsters and it will truly bring the reader into the story and make you NEED to see how it ends.

This is my first read by author, R. O’Leary and it won’t be my last. I am excited to see where this series go. I give this book 4 stars.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Girl Trap by Cynthia Hamilton is the third book in the Madeline Dawkins series. Madeline and her partner Mike are working two different cases. Are they somehow related?
I have enjoyed this series and think it improves with every book as the characters grow and evolve. I really like the changes Madeline has had since the first book. I recommend reading these in order because there are elements that carry over from book to book. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Never Let Me Go (Bayou Devils MC #6)Never Let Me Go by A.M. Myers

A.M. Myers is back with the story Never Let Me Go, which is book six in the Bayou Devils series. This is Juliette and Sawyer’s story.

I love this MC and author and was not disappointed in anyway. The strong storyline, character that I fell in love with, and a book I could NOT put down. Bravo on a job well done. I give this book five stars!!

Obsessed (Lila Casey Series, book one)
By J. Collins
4 out of 5 stars

Obsessed is the first book I’ve read by this author and despite no prior knowledge, I couldn’t pass it up. I am a sucker for a good vampire story.
Overall, I did enjoy the book and will be looking forward to reading more from this author. There were ups and downs without the story for me, times that I loved the book and other times I felt like there was something just “off” for me.
Obsessed ended up being one of those books that I did read pretty quickly, not one that you let sit and “get back to”. I guess with that being said I would say there were way more good aspects than bad!
If you’re looking for a fun, vampire read that really will make you smile, I do recommend giving this a try.

Steele Resolve (The Hawke Family Book 6) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Jana Teppih

Steele Resolve (Hawke Family #6)Steele Resolve by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Steele Resolve is the closing chapter of Gwyn McNamee Hawke Family series. It is absolutely not meant to be read as a standalone! All the stories in the series are intertwined and you need to read them in order to fully understand where the writer is taking you! It is a novella but it packs a punch and gives us a grand finale that the series deserves!
Love is the battlefield for Byron Harris and Luca “Steele” Abello that comes with real threats and dire consequences … they are walking along the path that I do not wish even onto my enemies though if it all goes well, their life would be one of the fairy tales … Luca is the son of Hawke family enemy, his father almost destroyed the family and brought untold pain and misery … Byron is the adopted member of the family that he cannot imagine to be disloyal to … what should they do? Let each other go? Steal the moments? What a drama does the writer give us when she brings it all together … the past and the present and the future … and the epilogue … my goodness!
I know that the writer will give us many more stories and I will be on a lookout!

Murder Creek by Jane Suen – Review by Emily Walsh

Murder CreekMurder Creek
By: Jane Suen
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Murder Creek by Jane Suen was a quick murder mystery that’s both pulling and entertaining.

Not my first read by this author so I knew going in that the writing would be smooth, plot on point and the story compelling. I was not let down and I was pulled in right away by this thrilling mystery. This is a standalone so no worries about past story lines, or continuation plots that will confuse you.

Right away we meet or MC, she’s a bit of a free spirited and knows what she wants in life, I did find her a little immature, but it wasn’t a draw back, just showed her age. It was a nice balance and added a nice layer to the MC. I loved the mystery and her need to find out what happened to the missing girl. It was nice following the clues and piecing it together, and trying to find out what happened. It was fully engaging and I had a pretty good time reading it.

Overall if you’re looking for a pulling, thrilling mystery with twist , turns, and suspense, then please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval that you will fall hard for this wondrous mystery.

Happy Reading

RETURN (Rewind Book 2) by Rowan Shaw – Review by Erica Fish

Return (Rewind #2)Return by Rowan Shaw
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Return by Rowan Shaw is the second book in the series but can be a stand alone book as well. Rowan Shaw paints the perfect picture with her words. That makes reading her books a lot easier. There was a warning in the synopsis that I passed on in the description of my review. The story of Rapheal and Adrien can be uncomfortable for some readers. The story has some strong emotions that could spark the readers emotions. Personally, I can empathize with anyone (real or fictious) so this story, even though I loved it, took me on some big emotional moments. Rapheal is a college student looking for a place to live (on the cheap side) and he found Adrien. Both had strong emotions for one another but neither one really knew what was in store. Will Adrien and Raphael give in to their emotions or will turn away from each other?
