Countdown: Ethan (Countdown #2) by Allie Boniface
Countdown: Ethan - Allie Boniface

 

 

The unpredictable meets the emotional. Boniface keeps the one, two punches coming with Ethan and Dakota. True love becomes a dangerous game for two strangers in the night. Dakota finds herself in over her head when she falls for the wrong guy. Just when she finds the right one, her past choices could spell the end of more then the happy ending she's always wanted. A suspenseful thrill.

Countdown: Grayson by Allie Boniface
Countdown: Grayson - Allie Boniface

 

 

I love Allie Boniface. Her characters are poetic proof that mistakes aren't the definition of who we are. Grayson and Kara may be different people, but they share a common goal. Moving beyond the negativity that has haunted their lives and create their own brand of beauty. Countdown: Grayson is not the beginning of the end, but the start of something wonderful. Happiness.

Killer Countdown (Man on a Mission #6) by Amelia Autin
Killer Countdown (Man on a Mission) - Amelia Autin

 

I really liked the first half of this book and the characters. Then in the second half the characterizations of both the hero and heroine went into stereotypical Harlequin mode. The heroine's descent was more acute - she faced any tough conversation or situation by either crying or spreading her legs. The hero was actually a pretty good guy, tough but open minded and open hearted. Then he just got secretive so he could protect the little lady bullshit. I ended up skimming most of the last 25% of the book. The ending was okay, but not enough for me to want to read the rest in the series.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-10-07 02:29
Finished Reading Ellie Jordan Ghost Trapper
Ellie Jordan, Ghost Trapper - J.L. Bryan

I loved J.L Bryan's ghosts and Ellie Jordan's character! Some ghosts are bad but others are only trying to help, like Mercy. The ghosts in this story are trapped in a house called The Marsh House. It is a creepy dark mansion that was sold to a family with dreams of turning it into a bed and breakfast or possibly a hotel. However, they quickly find out it is haunted when strange things begin to happen.

The father is a drunken slob who refuses to believe there is a ghost in their house and his daughter Lexie is traumatized by having seen one.

It is the ghost of Mercy Cutledge, which we know, is only trying to warn them by telling them to leave because there is a dangerous evil inside the walls.

(spoiler show)

Her mother Anna Treadwell is the only sensible one who reaches out to Ellie Jordan for help.

 

Ellie Jordan has to get rid of the ghost of Mercy Cutledge, so they perform a couple things, like stage a funeral, but it doesn't work, so now, Ellie is forced to evict her. Before that happens, she gathers more facts about the owners of that particular house. I found the research fascinating. Ellie and her partner Stacey also break into the same loonie bin asylum her ghost lived in but was long since shut down and abandoned. That part gave me the creeps. They didn't have a machete but wore boots and waded in tangled vines, smashed glass and tall weeds in a thorny jungle.  I can picture them both running like a bat out of hell out of that decrepit place. Good times.  

 

After doing some research, she finds out the owner used to be Augustus March born 1848 and had amassed a lot of money. He marries Eugenia who was a good church-going woman, but she develops a strange sudden illness and died in 1901. It was suspicious.


Augustus has a bad reputation and a few years later his house is turned into a high-class brothel or some shit like that. I can't remember if he did it himself or if it was his niece Louisa Marsh (?). Augustus left his house to her, which by the end of his life was about all he had left.

He was stabbed to death in 1954 by Mercy Cutledge and everyone assumes she was crazy. She accuses Mr. Marsh of being an "occult wizard who is in league with demons" She was sent to an asylum aka mental hospital but later was murdered in Mr. Marsh's house.

(spoiler show)

Long story.

 

Anyway, the writing is good. I was afraid when Ellie began discussing how some ghosts can actually hurt us, that I would start hearing and seeing ghosts and didn't want them to hurt me ~ Lol I felt like crawling under my blanket with the classic case of the shivers. Like Scooby-Doo!

I am looking forward to reading more in the series. I am already attached to the characters. So fun.
