Also, she has a mystery to solve involving missing books. What do this books contain and why would someone steal them?

The Slip series is three novels by Gwyn McNamee.

After a tragedy, Angelia is still trying to pick up the pieces of her life five years later. To cope, Angelo’s joins an organization.

Mark Lyon is also trying to find a way to keep moving after losing his daughter Ashleigh.

When the two meet, maybe it’s a time for them both to start to heal instead of only existing.

This was a really emotional book to read. I enjoyed it but it was hard to read. I imagine it would be even more so people who have children or have been in that situation.

I have read a few books by this author and this is by far my favorite and most memorable.

The love story between Mark and Angelia is unimaginable but it still works. I love that they are able to help each other move forward even if that wasn’t how the relationship initially was.

I look forward to the author’s next book.

Michael was frustrating letting other control him and thoughts but I was glad when he saw things for what they were.

I am excited to read the next book and hopefully see these characters again.

Caught in Cross SeasCaught in Cross Seas by Sharleen Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Caught in Cross Seas is the first book in the Caught series by Sharleen Scott. This is my first novel by this author.

Country singer Clay Masterson travels to Angel Beach in search of his father who is charged with murder from eighteen years ago. When he finds him, he will alert the authorities.

Harlie is baker who moves to Angel Beach after escaping her abusive husband. The two meet and Harlie helps Clay.

But there is more to this situation than any of them could have thought possible. With danger lurking around every corner, falling in love was not part of the plan.

I really enjoyed the novel especially the main characters. Clay I felt sympathy for but felt he made some decisions that weren’t right but I could understand his anger. His relation with Harlie was filled with so much emotion it made it feel on the edge of my seat.

The author did a really great job showcasing the hurt, misunderstandings and heartbreak the characters go through.

It’s been a while since I read such an thriller filled emotional book, but I look forward to the next book in the series.
