Stolen Songbird by Danielle L. Jensen
Stolen Songbird - Danielle L. Jensen

The main character Cecile plans to move to her mother's place in the city and become a singer. The day before leaving, she is kidnapped and brought to the city of trolls. The trolls have been cursed for centuries - they can't leave their city and believe that Cecile will break the curse. She has to marry the troll prince Tristan and live among trolls. The girl thinks about escaping, but with time her feelings change.
I loved the world building. The trolls were amazing, creepy, and scary. They couldn't lie but twisted the truth and manipulated people. They were also very strong, clever, had magic and their city blew my mind. I actually liked some troll characters and really hated the others. 
The book was long but at times I felt that the story had gaps which needed filling. One moment Cecile hated trolls and the other moment she already had friends and was ready to take risks to help them. The romance felt a bit rushed and I wanted more about Tristan's point of view.
Still, I liked how Cecile, who had all these big plans at the beginning of the story, started to discover who she really was and the things she was capable at the end of the story were astonishing. Also I liked the last sentence so much I want to read the second book soon.

Chaos Station
Chaos Station - Jenn Burke,Kelly Jensen

War has been over for about 6 months. Felix (AKA Fix) is part owner of a ship that takes jobs. He is the mechanic and can fix anything. He was also a POW and declared dead. Zander (aka Zed) was "let go" by the military after the end of the war. He is at a crossroads and doesn't know what to do with his life; also in part d/t an experiment to make him a super soldier. Felix and Zander have known each other since they were kids, having gown up together and gone to academy together. Best friends, former lovers. Zander though Felix was dead.
This was a sweet 2nd chance story with good action and world building. The secondary characters are intriguing too- Qek, Nessa, and Elias. I would have liked more information on the Stin, that maybe forthcoming in a future installment. I'm betting the experimentation that Zed was exposed to will play into future books since they are only learning about the short term effects (and long term are completely unknown).

Bikinis in Paradise
Bikinis in Paradise (Tj Jensen Paradise Lake Mystery) (Volume 3) - Kathi Daley

TJ has stayed at the ranch to help run the Bikini Competition while her dad, his friend Rosalie and the girls are in FL at a convention, where her dad is the speaker. When the program is beginning, two women from the program have gone missing. A contestant and a woman from the company sponsoring the competition. TJ feels that she has to go find them, but when the organizer is found dead and weighted down in the lake, she feels even more that she has to find the other woman. Dylan also is pulling away from her, because his sister and nephew are coming to town and he wants to convince them to move there, but he also wants to make sure that nothing happens to scare his sister. 

This was an earlier book as the girls are new to her and they are all still trying to create relationships.

Fireworks in Paradise
Fireworks in Paradise (A Tj Jensen Mystery) (Volume 8) - Kathi Daley

TJ is called home from SC when her father is seriously injured in a car accident. She feels that she has to find out what happened and who is really to blame for the death of the judge/mayor and the injury to her father. There is a new police officer in town and she doesn't like civilians anywhere near her or any other officer. She feels that civilians are going to get everyone on the force killed. She has an adversarial relationship with TJ.

 

TJ learns about many things that the judge was working on at the time of his death and continues his work.

 

This was a good story and it was interesting to see changes in her relationship with Kyle.

Treasure in Paradise
Treasure in Paradise (A Tj Jensen Mystery) (Volume 7) - Kathi Daley

TJ takes her sisters, her grandfather, her friend, Kyle and 7 animals to Gull Island, SC to take care of an old friend of the family's retreat. When she arrives, she and Kyle and Doc find a body in the attic. They call the police and start to learn about the victim, the deputy and all the players who might have killed the man. The reason she is so persistent is that Doc, a retired coroner, says that the man was murdered. While this goes on, she deals with someone trying to force a sale of the land she is currently taking care of. She also learns that she has feelings for Kyle and he has the same for her. 

 

I have been enjoying Kathi Daley's books and have marked as many as I could for reading. I like that this one went to SC, which is somewhere my husband and I have vacationed together and so we know some of the places mentioned.
