EXCERPT:

 

“Family meeting!” I yelled from the bottom of the stairs, then, without pause, hit a few buttons on the phone screen.

 

“This better be good,” a voice grumbled in my ear after several rings.

 

“Family meeting,” I declared again.

 

He started to groan, but I hung up.

 

Family meetings were not negotiable. Not ever. Especially when I had something good I wanted to say.

 

Rimmel shuffled out of the kitchen, drowning in my hoodie and a pair of oversized sweats. Her hair looked like a chicken took up residence in the strands, and her nose was all scrunched up, accentuating the tired look in her eyes.

 

“Roman Anderson!” she chided, sassy as ever. “What in the world do you think you’re doing yelling up the stairs like that at six a.m.?”

 

Running a hand through my damp hair, I gave her a crooked smile. “Family meeting, baby.”

 

She snorted. “There can’t possibly be anything that important at this hour. If you wake up the boys with all that yelling…” she warned. In her arms, our daughter stirred. Rim glanced down then back at me accusingly. “Look what you did!”

 

I rolled my eyes. “London was already awake,” I pointed out, gazing directly at the bottle Rim was holding.

 

Rimmel looked down at our daughter, her eyes softening. My heart clutched a little, tightness squeezing my chest. London might be our youngest child, but seeing Rim standing in my house, drowning in sweats and holding my daughter, was something that would always affect me.

 

They were perfect standing there. My girls.

 

“Your daddy is a crazy man,” Rimmel told London. “Calling silly meetings at the crack of dawn.”

 

London made a sound and reached up for the black-framed glasses perched on Rim’s face.

 

“Nothing I do is silly! Don’t be telling my girl disparaging things about me,” I grumped, going forward to gently take her out of Rimmel’s arms. After taking the bottle, I glanced down. “Don’t listen to her, Strawberry. Mommy’s just grouchy without her coffee.”

 

London smelled like Rimmel, and I cuddled her closer into my chest. She reached for the bottle and pulled it to her mouth, her wide blue eyes staring at me like I was the only thing she saw in the world.

 

Smiling, I brushed at the soft dark hair covering her head. She was a miniature version of my wife, only with blue eyes.

 

The only one of our children to actually favor Rim in looks over me.

 

“Go get some coffee, baby. I got this.”

 

When Rimmel didn’t move, I glanced up. She was staring at me and London.

Lifting an eyebrow, I said, “What?”

 

That kissable mouth of hers pulled into a soft smile. “I just like watching you with her.”

“You make good kids, smalls.”

 

“You aren’t so bad yourself, Mr. Anderson.”

 

Heavy footfalls on the stairs made Rim lift her head.

 

“I’m gonna kick you in the ass, Rome,” Braeden grumped, scrubbing a hand over his face as he yawned.

 

“Rise and shine,” I drawled, then leaned over to kiss Rimmel on the forehead. “Get your coffee,” I instructed softly.

 

“It better already be made,” B bickered, brushing past.

 

Rimmel smiled and turned to go into the kitchen, but her feet got caught in the damn too-large sweatpants and she pitched sideways.

 

I lunged forward, clutching our daughter in one hand and reaching out with the other. Braeden moved a little quicker and scooped her up before she could hit the floor.

 

“Girl, either eat a steak or get some pants that fit,” he said, placing her on her feet.

 

“I thought you were half asleep.” She smacked his chest and started toward the kitchen. She fell so much it didn’t even faze her anymore.

 

I glanced down at London. “You can look like Mommy all you want, but how about taking on my reflexes, huh?”

 

“I ain’t so tired I can’t catch my sister before she busts her ass.” B scolded Rim as they continued into the kitchen. “We got shit to do today. A hospital visit ain’t on the list.”

 

“You know what this meeting is about?” The accusation in her voice made me wince, and I hot-footed it into the living room. I’d let him deal with that.

CROSSOVER (Thrilling Christian Fantasy Suspense (Chaser Chronicles #1)) - John C. Dalglish

CROSSOVER(Christian Adventure) (THE CHASER CHRONICLES Book 1)
Starts out with the PI and he's taped to his chair, big headache and something, a ghost shape is in front of him telling him he will have a choice to make.
He learns a few days later he can either follow Jesus or go after the runners and make them crossover. There are chasers and this ghost wants him to become one...
This book is out there as far as my beliefs but was a good read because the author describes things in such detail you feel as if you are there.
Loved all the action, adventure and investigating as we got to go visit in several places.
Received this book free on Amazon and this is my honest opinion.

M. M. Kaye's mystery "series"
Death in the Andamans - M.M. Kaye
Death in Berlin - M.M. Kaye
Death in Zanzibar - M.M. Kaye
Death in Kenya - M.M. Kaye
Death in Kashmir: A Mystery - M.M. Kaye
Death in Cyprus: A Novel - M. M. Kaye

Reading Victoria Holt's India Fan brought to my mind M.M. Kaye, who is best known for her massive, sweeping epic romance of India during the twilight of the British Raj, The Far Pavilions. Along with that book, she wrote two additional pieces of rather massive historical romance – The Shadow of the Moon and Trade Winds. In addition to those three books, she wrote a brief, entertaining series of mysteries set in exotic locations.

 

While this is now nominally marketed as a series (Death In . . . ), each of the books is 100% stand-alone, with different characters entirely. There is a slight overlap between Death In Zanzibar and Trade Winds, which is really only interesting for fans of M.M. Kaye.

 

I remember reading at least Death in Zanzibar and Death in Kenya as a teenager. I first read The Far Pavilions, which was one of my favorite books for many years, probably very soon after it was published in 1978, when I was 12. I would estimate that I took off of my mother’s bookshelf at around the age of 16, because I read a lot of historical romance of varying quality during those years, and had a definite affinity for epic historicals. After reading the three historical romances, I definitely picked up a few of Kaye’s mysteries. The covers would have been very different from Minotaur’s bright colored, almost Picasso-esque covers – something more like this:

 

 

Like Georgette Heyer, who also wrote at least a few mysteries, Kaye seems to be primarily a writer of romance, so all of her mysteries have a strong romantic sub-plot. In each, the main character is a young, unmarried, attractive woman who finds herself embroiled in a murder case in some capacity. These pairings tend to be quite regressive, and often involve the sort of interfering, (some might say controlling) overly-protective male love interest that is seen in other romance novels of the time period (Death in Kenya, the first of the mysteries, was published in 1953, while Death in the Andamans, the last of them, was published in 1960). This can be jarring to readers who’ve grown up with fiction (and reality) where the relationships are far more egalitarian.

 

Kaye had a fascinating life – she was born in Simla, in British India prior to Indian independence – her father was a British officer in the Indian Army. She married an officer in the British army as well, and spent her marriage in 27 different postings over 19 years, many of which she used as settings for her novels. She wrote a multi-part autobiography, which given how fascinating and insightful her fiction is, appears to be well worth checking out.

 

Since 2017, I’ve reread all of Kaye’s crime fiction and enjoyed them all with varying levels of enthusiasm. Over time, I’m sure that I will get reviews posted for all of them – they are well worth reading for people who enjoy romantic mysteries set in exotic, faraway places.

Hope
Special Forces: Operation Alpha: Handling Haven: A Deimos/Trident Security/Delta Team Crossover (Kindle Worlds) - Samantha A. Cole

Lucas AKA “Frisco”  meets Haven at her worst moment.  He cannot get her off his mind for months following.  When he sees her again, and the attraction is till there, he knows he must say something.

 

Haven has already had a hard life.  Going through an injury that may change her life should have been expected.  When it all hits the fan - can she trust someone she just met to make her feel better about her situation?

 

The Deimos series starts off with a literal bang!  The characters are interesting, as well as mysterious and definitely worth reading.  I loved these characters and the way they interacted.  The gritty story gets your blood pumping, while the love story soothes the rough edges.  I enjoyed every page!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

Quick Paranormal
Out-Foxxe'd: A Rosie Peaks Crossover (Th... Out-Foxxe'd: A Rosie Peaks Crossover (The Adventures of Rosie Peaks Book 5) - Madison Sevier

Out-Foxxe'd by Madison Sevier is a fairly quick read, a perfect choice for those paranormal fans with limited time for reading.  Ms Sevier has delivered a well-written book that is fun to read.  Rosie and Markus' story is loaded with drama, humor, sizzle and lots of woo-wooish mystical type things.  I enjoyed reading Out-Foxxe'd and look forward to my next Madison Sevier book.  Out-Foxxe'd is book 5 of the Rosie Peaks Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
