Spouse Trap: A Madeline Dawkins Mystery (The Madeline Dawkins Series Book 1) by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Sheri Schrader

Spouse Trap (Madeline Dawkins, #1)Spouse Trap by Cynthia Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Spouse Trap: A Madeline Dawkins Mystery by Cynthia Hamilton is the first of three books in the Madeline Dawkins series. Madeline lives the perfect life until one fateful night. When her husband presents evidence to her of the night she loses everything she has in one swoop. Will Madeline figure out what and who is sabotaging her life?
This is a well-written story where I was able to imagine the scenery, characters, and story. The characters are well developed and I was rooting for Madeline to figure out everything and get her life back in order. I want to say more but do not want to take away from anyone’s experience. I really enjoyed this overall and look forward to reading more from this series.

Beachcomber Enemy: a Romantic Thriller (Beachcomber Investigations Book 10) by Stephanie Queen – Review by Sheri Schrader

Beachcomber EnemyBeachcomber Enemy by Stephanie Queen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beachcomber Enemy by Stephanie Queen is the tenth book in the Beachcomber Investigations series. It had been a while since I had read this series and I was glad to jump back in. Dane Blaise & Shana George are back and their lives are at risk. Someone is out to get them and they decide to go in ghost mode. The only problem is Shana feels something is off. Will they figure out where the danger is coming from? I really enjoyed the story because it has a little bit of everything. The relationship that Dane and Shana have is sweet and sexy at the same time. I am glad that I jumped back into the series for another episode in their lives. I look forward to more in the future.

Minx by Maggie Adams – Review by Sheri Schrader

MINXMINX by Maggie Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Minx by Maggie Adams is a fun, quick read. The story is about Miranda, who has been not living her best life. Her husband leaves her and she has to rebuild her life. After having been focused on her husband and kids she has to learn to take care of herself. I like her humor and that she is not a perfect, model person. She has flaws and learns to run with them. Her friends are a great addition to the story but do not overpower Miranda’s character. This is my first book by this author but after Minx I will keep an eye out for her other books.

Winging It (Destiny Rules Series Book 1) by Lisa Gail Green – Review by Sheri Schrader

Winging It (Destiny Rules Series Book 1)Winging It by Lisa Gail Green
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Winging It by Lisa Gail Green is the first book in the Destiny Rules series. This is a YA with the main character being Zach. He has just turned 16 and discovers his mom is a fairy godmother and he is fae as well. The story is told from his point of view which I enjoyed. He is funny and snarky at times. Even with the fae bombshell, there is even more for Zach to adjust to and be challenged by.
This is a fun start to a new series. I enjoyed the story and the characters. The story has a different premise and I like that Zach is not a whiny teen. He is a good person and rises to the new adventures in his life. I look forward to reading more from this series in the future.

Crafting Love (Wine & Furniture Series Book 1) by A.E. Gamrat – Review by Sheri Schrader

Crafting LoveCrafting Love by A.E. Gamrat
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Crafting Love by A. E. Gamrat is the first book in the Wine & Furniture series. I was drawn in by the crafting portion but really enjoyed not only that aspect but the characters and story as well. Kelly and the ladies are great and I love the fact of them coming together to create a business using their various skills. Kirk is sweet and works his way to Kelly and her heart.
The story is fun and has a good dialogue. I like the setting and how it worked with the overall story and characters. I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading more in this series.

Dracones Guardian (Dracones Book 6) by Sheri-Lynn Marean – Review by Sheri Schrader

Dracones GuardianDracones Guardian by Sheri-Lynn Marean
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dracones Guardian by Sheri-Lynn Marean is the sixth book in the Dracones series. Luckily this can be read as a standalone book because I had not read the other books. This is a paranormal, fantasy, romance book that had me reading quickly from beginning to end. Zander is an archangel who will do anything to protect his children. When he least expects it he meets Chloe. As he is facing decisions a new enemy makes itself known.
This story has a lot going on but all of it comes together and makes for a terrific read. I really enjoyed the characters and the different paranormal elements. I am going to go back and catch other books in this series.

Secure Desire: A Chase Group Story by R.L. Dunn – Review by Sheri Schrader

Secure DesireSecure Desire by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Secure Desire by R. L. Dunn is from the A Chase Group Series. I was drawn in because Cassiopeia, the main female character, has a history of being an art historian. Also, what a fantastic name. Ian is at the head of a private security firm after serving in Afghanistan. The two had met years before and have been brought back together. Ian will do anything to protect Cassiopeia. I was reading to find out how an art historian had gotten herself into so much danger. I really enjoyed the story and the characters and hope to see more of them in future books. This has a little bit of something for anyone who likes a good suspense book.

Secure Again: A Chase Group Story by R.L. Dunn – Review by Sheri Schrader

Secure Again: A Chase Group StorySecure Again: A Chase Group Story by R. L. Dunn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Secure Again by R. L. Dunn is the second book in the Chase Group series. Dr. Elizabeth Reed is a surgeon who is seeing some odd things at the hospital where she works. Her past comes back to her in Martin Bailey, whose brother she is treating for a gunshot wound. The two set out in separate investigations but still get drawn back together. This is a good story that is full of suspense, mystery, and romance. I was drawn into the story and wanted to keep reading to find out what was going on for Dr. Reed and Martin’s cases. I liked there were separate stories but they intertwined. I also enjoyed the characters. I look forward to reading more in this series soon.

Edge of the Storm: Book 2 (Silent Secrets)Edge of the Storm: Book 2 by Lisette Kristensen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Edge of the Storm by Lisette Kristensen is the second book in the Silent Secrets series. This is a short story that packs a punch. I really am enjoying seeing the transformation and growth of the character Blackbird. Also, despite the short length, there is a lot of story told. Characters are interesting and developed and the story is action-packed. I also enjoyed the story and the angle of the target being Vatican treasures. I look forward to more in this series.
