Saving Grace by Pamela Fagan Hutchins @pameloth
Saving Grace (Katie & Annalise #1) - Pamela Fagan Hutchins

I am a cover girl and when I saw the cover for Saving Grace by Pamela Fagan Hutchins, I had to have it. I love anything to do with water and this one is a beauty. What do you think?

 

Cover by Heidi Dorey

 

Saving Grace (What Doesn't Kill You, #1)

MY REVIEW

 

I love the cover and the location, the Virgin Islands, for Pamela Fagan Hutchins’ Saving Grace. It was all I hoped it would be.

 

I was relating to Katie quickly, wrapping her napkin neatly around her beer, playing pool and winning, but that’s where the similarities ended. I don’t drink and text and neither should she. I find it terrible that a lawyer would act like she did, especially in a room with all her coworkers. She acts like an obsessively love struck teenager.

 

The beginning is abrupt and I was thrown right into the story and I don’t much like Katie right now. But, let’s see if there is a reason for her being so out of control and sophomoric.

 

The name dropping got a bit annoying…Dennis the Menace, Bon Jovi, Direct TV, iPhone, Ihop, Hooters, Vaio, Dell, Blackberry…you get the drift.

 

An intervention sent her to St Marcos in her quest to solve the mystery of her parents death and get her act together. Enter Ava, who in her way introduced Katie to Annalise, Hebrew for Grace, an abandoned mansion that spoke to Katie. Now Pamela has my attention! Who…or what… is really doing the talking?

 

Katie loved walking on the beach and it cleared her mind. Now, we’re getting together.

 

Oh man, guess it had to happen, but I’m disappointed how her trip ended. I have a feeling that will change. It was just getting good for me, but I feel there is a lot more to come.

 

When the news came over the phone after one of the worst days of her life, I got super excited too. My heart beat faster, a smile came to my face, and I began racing through the pages. Oh yeah, now we’re cooking with Caribbean heat.

 

She got a pick up with a lift kit and cruised off to her new life. I want to be there!! I love to bury my feet in the sand and I have enjoyed a PainKiller or two.

 

I’m afraid for her and her friends. In the islands anything can happen. The suspense is mounting, the tension building. I can feel it. I see it coming. Does she?

 

I didn’t like Katie’s whining and sniveling for the longest time, but her growth and development, her willingness to see herself as she really was and make changes, made me like her more and more.

 

Now…after thinking I wasn’t going to like this so much…I find myself hating for it to end and wanting more.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Saving Grace by Pamela Fagan Hutchins.

Heaven to Betsy (Emily #1) - Pamela Fagan Hutchins

I loved this book!! It took on a different tone than the author's other books. It was kind of a little more lighthearted than her other ones and there were even some laugh out loud moments. The interaction between Emily and her boss was at times hilarious and you could feel the heat without having to read about it in detail. I know I'm going to really like this series (hopefully, it will be one!) and can't wait to read more.

Having read the Annalise series, I knew that Emily had worked with Katie at a law firm in Dallas prior to her move to the islands. Other than that, I didn't really know that much about Emily other than she introduced Nick and Katie. I also didn't know that Michelle from Going For Kona knew these girls. Maybe it was implied and I skipped right over it. Nevertheless, I loved how the author has tied all her books together. I feel like I belong to a big huge circle of friends when I read these books. And I'm so glad I have been there reading her books since the beginning.

The best part was this was set in Texas! I love reading books that are located in places I've seen or been. And not only did it have the locales, but the language, the traditions and just everything Texas.

I definitely recommend this book!!

Going for Kona (Michele) (Volume 1) - Pamela Fagan Hutchins

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Pamela for the opportunity!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! It was much different from her Annalise series, but it was still great. I loved the fact that I had been to a lot of the places in the book and was very familiar with a lot of it as the main character lived in Houston. I always like books that are based somewhere that I've been. It's like revisiting those places again.

The story was very entertaining with some mystery, intrigue and suspense involved as well. It was a fast, easy read. Because it was a document, I couldn't tell where I was in the book and I kept thinking she was going to leave some loose ends, but everything was all sorted out in the end and made for a fun and entertaining read. You really end up really liking (or really detesting in the case of the bad guys) the characters and hate that you won't be seeing them either again or for a while.

I really like the Ironman part of it as well. I'm familiar with it, I have friends who do it and that just made it even better. Definitely one to read!

Going for Kona
Going for Kona - Pamela Fagan Hutchins I received an ARC of this book for a fair and honest review.

Michele and Adrian have an amazing relationship, and now a new book about their triathlon team of two. Their publicist has lined up television spots, interviews, and marathon book signings.

Then Adrian dies. Michelle's life crumbles. Her step-daughter's grandmother comes to take her granddaughter to NYC, and her son has some new friends who may be getting him in trouble. What else could go wrong? Oh yeah, the odd woman who has just announced to the media that she's had a year-long affair with the deceased husband.

Michele has lost her one true love forever. But when she is running, swimming, and biking, she feels his spirit next to her, coaching her forward toward the Iron-man race in Hawaii. But the sinister murderer of her husband appears to be stalking her son and her.

Life isn't good without Adrian but Michelle comes to realize that she has to make her own decisions in order to provide the best options for her son.

A well-written novel about love, and winning at life.
