Release Week Review! In Name Only (The McKenna Legacy #8) Patricia Rosemoor!
In Name Only - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

Myth has it that Caillech lives in the cabochons of her jewels and takes revenge on anyone who wears what is hers—the reason the owner hired jewelry designer Flanna McKenna to make copies. Even so, the woman was murdered and the jewels disappeared. Michael Eagan is hired to catch a thief—possibly Flanna herself if her late client’s son is believed. Flanna agrees to Michael’s idea of a mock marriage as they set out to seek a Traveler who may be the real thief. What starts as an arrangement soon turns into something hotter, but Flanna knows finding the jewels before Beltane is critical, for if any woman wears the jewels on that magic night, Caillech will free herself and return to corporeal form with the power of the sorceress...

 


In Name Only” is a delightfully mysterious addition to “The McKenna Legacy” series that pulls readers in and refuses to let go.

 

Flanna McKenna’s client has been murdered and the cursed jewelry has been stolen and some are blaming Flanna for the theft but with time running out, Flanna joins forces with Michael Eagan, a PI hired to catch the jewel thief, in order to catch the real thief and stop an evil sorceress from reawakening.

 

These two strong, bewitching characters easily draw readers into their story as their arrangement gets hotter but the relationship stays on a rocky slope with lots of emotional turmoil due to secrets, legacies, curses and pressure as they run out of time to catch the thief. Michael and Flanna’s romance may be rocky, but the sizzling attraction burns hotter with every turn on of the page.

 

Suspense and spine chilling mystery keeps readers hanging on the edge of their seat throughout this fast paced plot full of intrigue, betrayals and a bit of the paranormal with curses and a sorceress trying to rise through cursed jewelry. The readers can’t help but become caught up in the chase as Michael and Flanna pretend to be married while looking for thief especially as the author paints such vivid imagery with her well written scenes that readers can easily picture the scenery and feel the atmosphere of the story.

 

The McKenna Legacy” series is a wonderful variety of stories as each one presents readers with passionate romances and wonderful characters with each story having its own unique elements but centered on a magical legacy that adds a bit of wonder and flair to the story.

Excerpt:
“Flanna McKenna, wait a moment.”
Pulse thudding, she stopped and demanded, “And what is it you would be wanting?”
“To talk. About your work for Bridget Rafferty.”
“Unless you represent the authorities, which I doubt with that accent—” he was obviously an American “—I have nothing to say to you.” How would a complete stranger from another land know about her work?
“Michael Eagan, Beacon Hill Investigations.” He flipped open his identification. “It seems your Mrs. Rafferty was the third murder connected to the theft of antique Celtic jewelry in the last month, the first having been in Boston.”
“The third?” Flanna’s mind whirled. “Of course, the other pieces…”
“So you do know something about the murders.”
The way he said it put up Flanna’s back. Another person who thought she was guilty of something? Though she wanted in the worst way to tell him to leave, she couldn’t do it just yet, not until she got the details. She’d not only experienced bad vibes from the pieces she’d replicated, but she’d also had visions of several historical deaths connected to the collection, as well.
She hesitated too long. The front door flew open and there was her mother coming at them, pushing the silver-streaked dark hair from her still pretty face, which was lit by a big welcoming smile.
“You didn’t say a thing about bringing a date, Flanna,” Delia McKenna said, giving her daughter a hug and kiss on the cheek. “And isn’t he a handsome boyo.”
“Ma, please—”
Michael smiled in return and a dimple popped in his right cheek. “Why, thank you, Mrs. McKenna.”
“An American, is it?”
“Irish-American. Michael Eagan. I can see where your daughter gets her beauty.”
Flanna gaped as the private investigator turned on the charm and took her mother’s hand. Her mother actually giggled.
“We’ll be so pleased to have you as our guest.”
“Give us a minute,” Flanna said, biting the inside of her cheek when her mother raised her eyebrows and smiled before retreating to the house. She counted silently to three, then faced Michael. “What do you think you’re doing?”
“Trying to be pleasant to your mother.”
“Now she thinks you and I are—are—”
“Lovers?”
“I was going to say together!”
“You have a problem with intimacy?” One dark eyebrow shot up in challenge.
“I have a problem with you. Perhaps you should leave now and we can meet back in town later.”
“You realize if I don’t come inside with you, you’ll have to explain why.”
He had a point.

Release Week Review! Cowboy Protector (The McKenna Legacy #6) Patricia Rosemoor!
Cowboy Protector (The McKenna Legacy) - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

Rancher Neil McKenna Farrell has none of the psychic gifts his sister and cousins had inherited. But when he meets Annabeth Caldwell, a worker at the Chicago rodeo where he’s competing, he “sees” her in grave danger! Then he and Annabeth are taken hostage in a robbery attempt, and she’s nearly killed. He’d inherited the McKenna legacy, after all.


When Annabeth becomes entangled in something sinister, Neil has no choice but to protect her. Annabeth falls under Neil’s spell, making her long for family and a love that would last a lifetime.

 


Neil McKenna is a rancher who discovers that he has the inherited the McKenna Legacy after all when “sees” danger facing Annabeth and he has no choice but to protect her. Annabeth Caldwell is just trying to make ends meet by working at the Chicago rodeo when she becomes entangled in something sinister and falling under Neil’s spell, making her long for family and an everlasting love.

 

This delightfully sweet and thrilling romance brings readers enjoyment by combining a suspense, cowboys and a touch of the supernatural with romance. Neil and Annabeth are strong characters that captivate readers with their ‘avoid the relationship’ romance that has lots of emotional turbulence and readers can easily relate to and understand where the characters are coming from while they reach for their happily ever after.

 

The story progresses at a steady to fast pace and keeps readers glued to the pages with the intrigue of not only the romance but with the danger that Annabeth is facing and when the couple work toward keeping Annabeth safe, readers become more entangled with the mystery of who done it as surprising twists keep them guessing.

 

This is only the second story that I have read in the McKenna Legacy series but so far I am quite intrigued with all the McKenna characters and the fascinating Legacy that has each one finding true love while amongst danger and intrigue, so I will continue to catch up with this series.

Return to Jenkins Cove by Rebecca York, Ann Voss Peterson & Patricia Rosemoor
Christmas Spirit (A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove) - Rebecca York
Christmas Awakening (A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove) - Ann Voss Peterson
Christmas Delivery (A Holiday Mystery at Jenkins Cove) - Patricia Rosemoor

***copies provided by publisher through NetGalley***

CHRISTMAS SPIRIT by Rebecca York
Chelsea Caldwell is right back where she started, seeing ghosts and being the talk of the town. Yet there's something sinister happening in the small town of Jenkins Cove, and Chelsea might just be the person to uncover it.


It felt like this book couldn't decide what it wanted to be. Romantic suspense, paranormal romance? Each separate classification would've worked, unfortunately, mixed together created an unfortunate mess.

The characters were bland and dull, the plot got lost in the suspense/paranormal/killer/ghosts mess, and the romance left me utterly cold.


CHRISTMAS AWAKENING by Ann Voss Peterson
After ten years, Marie Leonard is back in Jenkins Cove determined to discover why her father's been murdered...But she'll have to deal with skepticism by the local chief of police, the man who broke her heard ten years ago, and a killer determined to silence her forever.


Though this one also had some paranormal elements, it was a much more straightforward romantic suspense story than its predecessor.

Unfortunately, the suspense aspect was the only thing I enjoyed about this one, even though the villain's motive left much to be desired.
The characters were bland (the hero was a self-pitying fool and I simply couldn't stand his moaning toward the end), and the romance tepid.


CHRISTMAS DELIVERY by Patricia Rosemoor
Lexi thought Simon, the father of her preteen daughter, dead for thirteen years, but instead of dead, he's merely been through hell, thanks to human traffickers operating in the small town of Jenkins Cove.
But now, Simon is back, determined to make whoever the culprit is pay...


This second-chance quasi-romance left me utterly cold. The characters were dull and bland, I didn't care about their relationship in the past (since we never got to see it) or in the now (because they simply weren't that compatible).

The main suspense arc of this "series" was never that interesting, so the resolution (rather predictable in all ways) didn't bring much satisfaction.

Release Day Review! Wolf Moon (The McKenna Legacy #7) Patricia Rosemoor!
Wolf Moon - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

RT Book Review: 4.5 stars TOP PICK 


Aileen McKenna came to the remote town of Wolf Creek to study wolves in the wild and ran into Rhys Lindgren, an enigmatic man with dark secrets and a connection to the local wolf pack. Frightened townspeople were convinced a predatory wolf was on the loose after three men were found dead in the woods. Rhys didn’t believe it any more than Aileen, and she intended to prove the wolves’ innocence. But would Rhys take her into the snow-covered forest to do just that? She'd have to be alone with him and trust him to draw out a killer…

 

 

 

The seventh book in the McKenna Legacy series is one intriguing read. It is full of anticipation building suspense that keeps readers glued to the pages and on the edge of their seat. The story takes place at a steady pace that ensures that readers are never bored and one that along with the wonderfully intriguing setting keeps readers aware that danger could strike at any moment. Aileen and Rhys are strong, compelling characters that easily draw readers to them and ensures that they want to know everything about their story. Their romance is sweet but full of anticipation as well while they each try to unravel secrets while they are facing an unknown danger as well. The town itself like I said is intriguing which adds to the suspense and adds a kind of mystifying fell to the story.

 

Patricia Rosemoor has a gift for making her stories seem intense and holding her readers hostage with hair raising suspense that sends delightful tingles of anticipation down the spine. This is the first book I have read of the McKenna Legacy but since the stories could be read as standalone that was no problem and the story certainly aroused my curiosity about the other McKenna and their stories so I will be reading them soon.

Release Day Review! Eyes of the Tiger by Patricia Rosemoor!
Eyes of the Tiger - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

Jewelry designer Gemma Hewitt has a gift. Gems and jewelry speak to her, which inspires her designs, and also sends her on dark adventures across the globe as she seeks out historic pieces. After her mother is brutally murdered, Gemma inherits her famed jeweled collar, which she hopes will lead her to see the face of her mother’s killer and bring him to justice. Instead, she's thrown back to 1901 India where she sees the young woman about to be married with a pendant that matches her jeweled collar. When she's hired to find the entire bridal suite, she hopes she can use the jewels to save her family's fortune. Can she trust the handsome, enigmatic man who promises to help her on her quest, or is he the one she should be running from?

British reporter/photographer Raj Sinclair wants the bridal suite for his own reasons. Attracted to Gemma, he senses a connection with her as if he’s known her for a very long time. When danger stalks her, he will do anything to protect her.

The treasure hunt takes them to cities from the US to Britain to France, ending in India where the bridal suite is finally rejoined... and three reincarnated souls get another chance to make things right.

 

 

Eyes of the Tiger is chock full of suspense and intrigue as well as romance which keeps readers glued to the pages.  Gemma and Raj are strong, compelling characters that have a sizzling chemistry that heats up the pages while they struggle to with trust and emotional issues that keeps the turmoil high despite their attraction and a smoldering passion that refuses to let them ignore it. The relationship is kind of an all uphill battle between Gemma and Raj but the intriguing events that take place keeps putting them together so they can’t deny the romance.

 

The anticipation builds throughout the story as the danger and the intrigue continues to build with lots of twists and turns to keep the readers wondering until the very end. The author makes it all come to vivid life with well written words that paint vivid images and makes it easy for the readers to become lost in the story.

 

Patricia Rosemoor has a gift for using twisting fascinating tales with unique elements that grab readers attention and keep them absorbed with the mystique and romance of her captivating characters and Eyes of the Tiger certainly holds readers hostage until the very end and to me it had a quest or treasure hunt feel to the story that really pulled me along and made feel as if I was joining Gemma and Raj on their adventure.
