#BookReview: Diamonds, Teak and Murder (Crystal Coast Cases, #1) by A.M. Ialacci

Reviewer: Serena Soape

75A06EE5-57A4-4DDE-A3E6-B3F68D067936Summary:

Upon the sudden deaths of her parents in a car accident, credit fraud investigator Allie Fox traded her fast-paced life in Chicago for a boatyard bookkeeping job in sleepy Carteret County, North Carolina. It is a huge transition, especially as she is now the sole caregiver for her younger autistic brother. But when the yard foreman mysteriously ends up dead at work, she can’t resist being pulled into the mystery.

Plenty of people had reason to want Ty Guthrie dead, but he had been kind to her as a kid, and even the sheriff’s department thinks there may have been foul play. Despite the possibility of alienating all of her co-workers and risking her livelihood, Allie becomes a consultant on the case to discover the murderer in their midst.

The deeper she digs, the more secrets she unravels, and the killer turns his sights on her, and even worse, her brother. At odds with law enforcement and the DA while a massive hurricane bears down on the coast, the only thing that matters is that her brother is in danger. With everything to lose and time running out, it’s up to Allie alone to stop the killer, or die trying.

Review:

This gripping mystery by A.M. Ialacci was definitely a page turner. The book starts with a mystery that left me wondering the entire book “ who done it?”.
The mystery surrounding the death of Ty is one that will leave you scratching your head….. and, maybe even leave you shocked after you find out who it is; I know I certainly was.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Each of A.M. Ialacci books have turns that keep you wanting to read more.
I would definitely recommend this book, as well as her previous book “Sight in the Dark” (A Crimson Falls Novella).

5 Stars.

Reviewer: Serena Soape

As the Christmas season nears, the charming town and its annual holiday festival captivate Hope, while the family at the guesthouse suspects there’s something she’s hiding. In a moment of weakness, she divulges her secret.

Will an offer of help destroy her life and all she cherishes, or will it be the gift she needs to triumph over her past?

A Season for Hope is a charming story about the kindness of strangers and finding hope where you never expected it. Cozy up with the first in the Christmas in Silver Falls novellas for a holiday read sure to warm your heart.

Review:

Tammy L. Grace captured my heart from the beginning of this Christmas Romance Novella. Hope’s story tugged at my heart strings throughout this book.
The characters were well written and developed and though their personalities were all so different, the way they were weaved together was great.
I absolutely loved this story and will definitely be reading more of Tammy L Grace’s books. I was teary eyed at the end but…… were they happy tears or were they sad tears? Grab this book and find out for yourself.

5 Stars.

#BookReview: The Better Choice by Kiersten Modglin

Reviewer: Serena Soape

E36E2DE5-7A2F-497D-AD8A-528D3715059ASummary:

This story starts with a question.

Six years ago, Blythe had a choice to make. A choice that would alter the course of her life, and the lives of the two men she loved, forever.
There was Finn, the tough and mysterious bad boy who took Blythe into his home, and Asher, the handsome go-getter who showed Blythe a world she’d never known.
Both men had secrets.
Both men wanted Blythe for their own.
The choice was hers to make.

This story starts with a question.
Six years ago, Blythe made her choice.
Did she choose the better man?

Review:

Kiersten Modglin wrote a fantastic book about an interesting love triangle. I was on pins
and needles throughout the book wondering whether Blythe would choose Finn or
Asher?

The book was well written and the loved the way the characters were developed through

the story.

Once again, there were some twists in the story that I did not see coming.

I was absolutely hooked from the beginning to the very end.
I have read several of Kiersten’s books and have loved them all.
So I suggest you make  “The Better Choice” and grab this for your next read.
5 Stars.

#BookReview: The Good Neighbors by Kiersten Modglin

Reviewer: Serena Soape

A3AAAF99-4783-4675-B9CA-686C42B68545Summary:

Good neighbors invite you over for dinner, bring you baked goods to welcome you to the neighborhood, and wave hello at the mailbox.

Good neighbors do not destroy your life.

When Bryant and Harper Page move to Lancaster Mills, their first encounter with their new neighbors—Jason and Tori Fuller: beautiful, strange, and terrifying—is anything but a warm welcome. Despite their hesitations, the Pages are intrigued by the people they now share a street with. As their curiosity gets the best of them, they discover that there’s much more to the Fullers than meets the eye. Their new neighbors have secrets, that much is obvious, but just how dangerous could they be?

With two haunting shadows lingering over their house and lives, the Pages’ relationship is tested in every way. What exactly makes a good neighbor? And what makes a good neighbor bad?

Review:

Kiersten has done it again!!! I started this book and could not put it down. I stayed up
late one night and back on it the first thing the next day… The story is one that will keep
you wondering throughout and just when you think you have it figured out….. another
turn.

I highly recommend this book as well as all of Kiersten’s books….
5 Stars.

#BookReview: Evening in the Yellow Wood By Laura Kemp

Abandoned by an eccentric father on the eve of her twelfth birthday, Justine Cook has lived with her fair share of unanswered questions. Now, ten years later she leaves her life in southern Michigan and heads north to the mysterious town of Lantern Creek after seeing his picture in a local newspaper. Once there, she discovers her father had been leading a double life and meets the autistic brother she never knew—a young man who is mute but able to read her mind.

When a local girl who looks like Justine is mysteriously murdered, she joins forces with sheriff’s deputy Dylan Locke to capture the killer. But the more they dig for clues to the past, the closer they come to discovering a secret someone will kill to protect. Justine begins to show signs of supernatural power and eventually must stop an immortal enemy that has hunted her family for generations.

Review:

Laura Kemp can weave a phenomenal story and it was truly a recipe for the flawless novel!

It is such a delight of all genres!

We are gifted a paranormal thriller, romantic suspense, magic realism & even horror in between the pages of “Evening in the Yellow Wood”.

I was truly enraptured! I was lost in the story.

From the moment I opened the book and met Justine Cook I did not want to shut the book until I got to the very end!

I loved each of the characters we met along Justine’s journey.

This story is just unstoppable and is not to be missed by anyone!

I’m anxiously awaiting Laura Kemp’s next book.

5 Stars.

Summary:

Set amid the world’s international airports and glamorous (and sometimes not so glamorous) hotels, the bestselling author of “The Copenhagen Affair, brings you story about what it really means for professional (but still human!) women to tackle the corporate world, scale the leadership ladder, and lean in to the lives they’ve always wanted, and truly deserve—Up in the Air meets 9 to 5 for today’s Pantsuit Nation.

Asmi knows that CPH (Copenhagen, Denmark) is the best airport to shop for clothes, and ATH (Athens, Greece) the best for shoes. The best Zara store is in BCN (Barcelona, Spain). The best airport to buy whiskey at is ARN (Stockholm, Sweden). When stopping at CDG (Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris), you must have a long layover because of those damn funiculars; and never forget that the international terminal in ORD (Chicago) has no food after ten in the evening. Airplanes, airports, and hotel lobby bars make Asmi feel just as much at home as her apartment in Laguna Beach does.

A marketing director in a biotech company, Asmi rose through the corporate ranks and never really took the time to think about couple-hood. She has good friends, a terrific sister who lives close by, and a married on-again, off-again lover in Paris she sees while she travels around the world for work.

But as Asmi reaches the big 4-0 and contemplates making some life choices; her boss announces he is retiring, and she is suddenly thrown into a corporate Hunger Games against her nemesis Scott Beauregard III to win a promotion.

Worried that her inability to commit to a real relationship with a man is a personality flaw and afraid that she’s unqualified for the job she desperately wants, Asmi must learn to lean in to have the career and life she wants and deserves, without worrying about what society expects from her
