Why Romantic Suspense by Kat Martin

I love novels that include both romance and suspense/thriller elements.  I like the extra depth it gives the story.  From the start, I envision the book being as much about the developing relationship between the hero and heroine as solving the suspense/thriller mystery.  There is intrigue in both.  How will the protagonists extricate themselves from […]

How to Draw a Handful of Hearts—Inspiration for My Sweet Regency Series ~ Jenna Jaxon

How to Draw a Handful of Hearts—Inspiration for My Sweet Regency Series If truth be told, the inspiration for this series, Handful of Hearts, began in 2011 as I was writing a short story to enter in a local writing contest.

3.5 Stars A CERTAIN AGE by Beatriz Williams

Posted  July 28, 2016  by  Ivy Truitt

A CERTAIN AGE is my first book by Beatriz Williams and I haven’t decided yet if I’ll search out another. Theresa was by far my favorite but the other characters paled a bit beside her.  So, the jury’s still out.

3 Star Review: What We Become by Arturo Perez-Reverte

Posted  July 28, 2016  by  Ivy Truitt

I discovered Perez-Reverte ages ago with THE CLUB DUMAS which was made into a horrific movie featuring Johnny Depp. His writing is beautifully descriptive and fluid. He’s written stand-alones as well as the series featuring Captain Alatriste. Perez -Reverte is an auto buy for me. However, as much as I love his writing I couldn’t […]

5 stars THE SAINTS OF THE LOST AND FOUND by T.M. Causey
