Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie: A Gripping Thriller (Jake Wolfe Book 1) by Mark Nolan
4 out of 5 Stars
This book is the first in the Jake Wolfe series and let me tell you that it is very fast-paced. I love crime, drama, mystery, and murder genres. But the book had my head reeling. This wasn’t at all bad at times. I loved the fast action most of the time. Similar to when you are watching a good movie and the fight scene is just THAT good. But I did find myself having to go back and reread a few portions to figure out something because there was much to the plot that I could not remember it all. However, having said all that, If I was ever in trouble, I would want Jake Wolfe to come to bail me out, because, dang. That man can really help a girl out. Jake is a war vet who is determined to protect those around him from the trouble that seems to find him.
This is a good book for lovers of mysteries, suspense, action, and adventure. The character dialogue is hilarious and the action is fast.

Pharaoh’s Forgery (Karina Cardinal Mysteries Book 4) by Ellen Butler – Review by Netania Lim

Pharaoh's Forgery (Karina Cardinal Mystery Book 4)Pharaoh’s Forgery by Ellen Butler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely love this series and was really looking forward to reading something featuring Karina set somewhere outside Washington DC, and this absolutely lived up to my expectations! There’s plenty of action and danger as always, and when Karina makes mistakes and impulsive decisions, her friends are always there to help her pick up the pieces. I couldn’t put it down as usual and there are lots of details that add to the story. Can’t wait for the next book!

Ellen is bang on the money with this series! This book gives us Karina on vacation in Cancun! Her sister is supposed to go with , but ends up hurt and has to cancel. Since her sister can’t go, she has a co-worker/friend that is able to go with her. But things are rarely cut and dried with Karina and this time is no different! This tale ended up being a book you couldn’t put down—which is nothing out of the ordinary for Ellen!

Pharaoh’s Forgery by Ellen Butler
Four Stars

Pharaoh’s Forgery is the fourth book in the Karina Cardinal Mystery series by Ellen Butler. This series keeps getting better and better. This book can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend you read the whole series in order to get the complete backstory. This book is full of page turning twists and turns. The action and adventure had me reading long into the night to find out what would happen next. Karina is on vacation and the mystery begins. Her sleuthing skills are getting better with each mystery. If you like a good Mystery , this is a great pick for you.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pharaoh’s Forgery (Karina Cardinal Mysteries Book 4) by Ellen Butler is such a lighthearted little mystery tale. I love these books featuring Karina Cardinal. She truly is a woman that trouble seeks. It is witty, sarcastic and sounds so much like plain ordinary people, except for the Silverthorne folk of course. This was a quick and easy read for me because I just enjoyed it so much. And when I thought it was over there were still surprises at the end. You can’t go wrong with this one.

I give Pharaoh’s Forgery: Karina Goes on Vacation (Karina Cardinal Mystery Book 4) by Ellen Butler, 5 stars.

I always forget just how good this series is until I start the next book and find myself unable to put it down. This book is no exception. I was pulled in from the very beginning. I like how they moved the location to another country. The change in setting was refreshing while still maintaining everything this series is know for. I liked how it was not all about DC and politics, now revolves around ancient relics. There is still a lot of adventure and twists and turns in the story, it is both thrilling and gripping.

Then there are the characters. Karina is great as always. She feels real, not always making the most popular decisions, but ones she feels strongly about. I like how we got to know more about her neighbor, Mrs. Thundermuffin. I could tell from previous books that she was definitely an interesting character and I was so great that the author told us so much more about her in this book. I also like how Rodrigo was more of a main character in this book too. Again, he seemed like an interesting character previously, but I had no idea just what he was made of. This book shows us.

If you like a thrilling mystery suspense with great characters and a gripping story, this book and series are for you. In my opinion, this can be read as a standalone, but I suggest reading all of them since they are so good.

IRRESISTIBLE – FALL INTO ROMANCE (Irresistible Romance Book 5) Anthology – Review by Robin Rankin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

IRRESISTIBLE – FALL INTO ROMANCE (Irresistible Romance Book 5)

by Tamara Ferguson (Author), Natalie Ann (Author), Suzanne Jenkins (Author), Cynthia Cooke (Author), Alicia Street (Author), Jen Talty (Author), Angela Stevens (Author), Patrice Wilton (Author)

Another amazing anthology from some pretty amazing authors  and worth every minute spent reading.

I’m only going to highlight the first book in the anthology which is Two Hearts Truce by Tamara Ferguson.

I fell in love with Jeff the moment he was in a non-combat setting in the previous book.   There was something very charming  about him, well the charm didn’t go away.  He is as charming if not more so once you really get to know him.  He is just an amazing guy who deserves to be happy.

Amanda is a lot to deal with at first, she’s not pleasant or all that likable.   Then you peal back a little bit and start to see a bit of the real her and learn her secrets and her personality makes sense.

You get laughs, love and suspense all in this first book.  Enjoyed every moment of it.

Pharaoh's Forgery (Karina Cardinal Mystery Book 4)Pharaoh’s Forgery by Ellen Butler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pharaoh’s Forgery is the fourth book in Ellen Butler’s Karina Cardinal Mystery series and we are going on a short girls’ holiday to Mexico with Karina … or so we think! It is always a pleasure to meet up with Karina and her kooky circle of friends and the enemies, the enemies tend to take the cake, every time!
Karina is going to Cancun for some sun and margaritas while also dropping off a package to Mrs Thundermuffin and you can guess what she does … Karina opens the Pandora Box and off we go onto a crazy ride with kidnappers and murderers and conmen. It is really good that Karina has friends in right places as she really needs some help to get herself and her fellow lobbyist Rodrigo back home in one piece! I loved how the writer had used her extensive research into the Brazilian National Museum fire to bring alive the story so that we were biting our nails at times and probably praying to ourselves ‘please, please, please …’

Pharaoh’s Forgery: Karina Goes on Vacation (Karina Cardinal Mystery #4) by Ellen Butler

Butler has this way of making you love her books. This is part of the Karina Cardinal Mystery Series and damn if it’s not a good one. You will want to read this even if you haven’t read the first 3.

Karina, K.C. as Mike calls her finds that she may be going on vacation alone. Her sister is down, her mom is taking care of Jill, and her boyfriend is working. Once on vacation she finds herself in trouble. The quote I chose for Karina is: “Not a word. Not a f***ing word.”

Mike, FBI Agent, has to work and feels bad about Karina going alone. He surprises her, but instead he’s the one who gets the surprise. He doesn’t like that she finds herself in trouble. The quote I chose for Mike is: “It’s Tuesday. Are you going to take Rick up on his offer?”

Highly recommended if you love crime, drama and romance.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am actually new to this Anthology, if the rest of the books are anything like this one, I’m sure I will love them all. I had no problem following the story and figuring out how the characters were connected. This is one of the best romances I’ve read recently. Jeff & Amanda dated back in high school. Like many young loves, they didn’t last. They continue to be in each other’s lives but don’t realize that each one was still attracted to the other. Will they make it past the reason they broke up?
