Sasha's Redemption by Grayson Avery

Welcome back to Sweet Water! Grayson Avery’s fourth book in the Sweet Water Circle Series, Sasha’s Redemption is a lovely addition to the series.

I have to thank Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to be part of the blog not only for this book but the three other books in this series.

The Overnight Guest by Heather Gudenkauf

This Tuesday the 25th is Happy Pub Day to Heather Gudenkauf! I’m so appreciative of the publisher, Park Row Books, for inviting me to be part of the blog tour for one of my favorite authors. Book description In a snowstorm, the safest place is home. Or is it? True crime writer Wylie Lark doesn’t mind being snowed in at the isolated farmhouse where she’s retreated to write her new book. A cozy fire, complete silence. It would be perfect, if not for the fact that decades earlier, at this very house, two people were murdered in cold blood and a girl disappeared without a trace. As the storm worsens, Wylie finds herself trapped inside the house, haunted by the secrets contained within its walls—haunted by secrets of her own. Then she discovers a small child in the snow just outside. How long had the child been there? Where did he come from? Bringing the child inside for warmth and safety, she begins to search for answers. But soon it becomes clear that the farmhouse isn’t as isolated

Before We Grow old by Clare Swatman

A love story across decades. Fran met Will when she moved next door to him when she was seven years old. They were the best of friends and eventually began dating. Their childhood romance abruptly ended when Will moved. Fast forward twenty five years and Will bumps into Fran at a café and they begin talking. Twenty five years is a long time to catch up and also for secrets to be made. This is the story Clare Swatman tells in her latest book Before We Grow Old. This is my first book by this author but it will definitely not be my last. I’m a huge fan of stories with the UK as the setting, which is the case with this book. The beautiful cover and the book description drew me in from the very start. One one of the things I love most about it is it kept all the English (UK) language. Some books set in the UK try to ‘Americanize’ the language but this book stayed true. I loved it! I also fell in love with the story. It is told from Fran’s POV and she has a lot going on. It is a fairly qu

Hunted by Caro Savage

I’m so excited to be bringing you Caro Savage’s new thriller, Hunted , which publishes today. On my stop on the blog tour presented by Rachel’s Random Resources I want to share information about the book and my honest review. Book description Someone is out to murder Detective Constable Bailey Morgan before she can testify in an upcoming trial. Using her undercover skills, Bailey embarks on a dangerous mission to help the police catch this elusive killer before it’s too late. But it won’t be easy for she’s up against a cunning and ruthless adversary who will stop at nothing to eliminate her. A tense game of cat and mouse ensues, leading to a shocking revelation at the heart of which lies the key to Bailey’s survival. Review This is the first of Caro Savage’s books that I’ve read and I was very impressed. It is set in the UK and I love UK crime thrillers as I can see the differences in police procedure from the US. This book is fast paced and filled with action. Bailey is a scrap

The Ex-Husband by Karen Hamilton

Happy Sunday! Today I want to share with you The Ex-Husband , the third book by Karen Hamilton. It comes out on January 18 th and you will want to add to your TBR! This is my first Karen Hamilton book and in piqued my interest when Graydon House offered this blog tour. I greatly appreciate being able to spread the word about this thrilling book. I have a new author to add to my list! Review: This is a story of con artists. A husband and wife, Sam and Charlotte, target couples on cruises until the wife has second thoughts. The book is told before and after the ‘death’ of the husband. The wife is working for an important client on a yacht when she receives threats to expose her past. This is the after. The before is the story of the couple on the cruise ships and their relationship. I thought this was a very good book. It has a solid plot, good characters, and a beautiful setting. It also has a surprise ending! Author Info: Karen Hamilton spent her childhood in Angola, Zimbabwe, B

The Arrangement Series by Kiersten Modglin

On the surface the couple has a wonderful family but their marriage is a little stale. They reach an "arrangement" to try to save their marriage and end up with much more than they bargained for!  The Arrangement was published in July 2021, and the second book, The Amendment will publish on February 1st.

Hustle by Owen Mullen

Happy publication day to Owen Mullen on his third book in The Glass Family series, Hustle. This is my first book in the series but when I saw it available on Rachel’s Random Resources blog list, the cover and description caught my eye so I thought I would give it a read. Thank you to Boldwood publishers for the advanced copy and for inviting me on the blog tour. Back jacket description What was meant to be a straightforward jewellery heist goes horribly wrong, and the thieves are forced to take a hostage to make their escape. But when they discover their prisoner is the infamous Nina Glass - one of the bosses of the most dangerous criminal dynasty in London - they soon realise they have made a terrible mistake.

Love at First Spite by Anna E. Collins

Anna E. Collins’s debut novel, Love at First Spite , is coming out this week. It’s the story of Dani who decides to build a house on the empty lot next to her ex-fiancée. The house she was supposed to own with her ex until she found out he cheated on her with their realtor less than a month before the wedding. Dani enlists the help of her co-worker, Wyatt, who she does not know very well besides his reputation of being a tough person. As Dani and Wyatt work on the house, they also develop a personal relationship. I loved this debut novel. It is a rom com with just the right amount of romance. Dani’s obviously hung up on her ex, Sam, (she’s building a house next door just to get on his nerves, gets an annoying wind chime that he will have to listen to, and many other things.) It is the perfect revenge and I don’t think Dani realizes how much she is doing just to get back at her ex. Dani has help from her landlady and cousin and this threesome has a wonderfully supportive relationship. T
