Tell Me No Secrets: a gripping thriller ... Tell Me No Secrets: a gripping thriller you won't want to put down - Lynda Stacey

Three and a half star rating.
Kate, her twin Eve and brother James were in an accident and she not only blames herself, but thinks everyone else does too. Her fiancé Rob has a secret and when she starts a new job as a Private Investigator meets Ben, who is everything Rob isn't. This book has a great cover, easy style of writing and is a real pot pourri - romance by the bucket, crime, deceit, grief and tragedy. A perfect, light summertime read with some nice and some not so nice characters. Enjoy it whilst lounging around near the pool or on the beach!

Book Review: That's What Friends Are For (Dear Dumb Diary #9) By Jim Benton
That's What Friends Aren't For - Jim Benton

 

What a throw back this book turned out to be! I can see where my particular flavor of humor started off. This is as sarcastic and funny as any middle grade book can be without going too far. This series was a big part of my childhood and it was awesome to read it as an adult. I can see where my twisted self first started appearing.

 

Jamie Kelly is all kinds of weird and her random theories make her all that much more entertaining to read about. She's in grade school and during that period of her life, she's still discovering who she is and what friends are really there for. This isn't a heartfelt story nor does it strive to be anything like that. It's a humor filled oddity that has found its place in my shriveled up heart. 

 

I would recommend this series to the end of the world and back. That's probably nostalgia talking, but it's an entertaining and quick read! The drawings were adorable and on point with the story.

 

My Favorite Quotes:

 

"Of course I can't really say that, I can only write it. But I'm writing it totally sarcastically and rather meanly."

 

"I treasure how the same people and things make us both want to barf."

 

"I do call her my friend, the same way I call them my socks or my infection. Nobody would ever suggest that the infection belongs to itself."

Finally
Can't Stop Lovin' You - Lynnette Austin

This book is # 3, in the Maverick Junction series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Brawley is moving back to his hometown.  He wants to take back the one who got away.  Only she is about to make a second slip right through his fingers.  Again.  Can the secrets of the past be overcome to find the happiness they deserve?

 

Maggie is finally getting her dreams to come true with this big move to New York.  While it is far from her Texas home, it provides opportunity and customers she needs to get her dress designing firmly off the ground.  What she may pay in the end is a different story.

 

This series is just as sweet as it is sassy.  This book was the one I held my breath for.  Let me tell you, it is absolutely worth it!  Characters like these, are why I read romance.  They have the spark about to ignite, and just need a little flame.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

What would you do for the people you loved...
Olivier - T.J. Nichols

'Olivier' is book #7 in the series 'Order of the Black Knights' and it's by T. J. Nichols. I'm really enjoying this series so far and while I haven't had the chance to read all of the books I've liked the ones that I have read and have hopes of going back to read the one's that I've had to miss. 

 

'The Order of the Black Knights is very much a series that allows for the books to be read as standalones. There is one character that is a constant in each book and while he is the thread that ties the stories together each story gives a more than sufficient explanation of his connection. 

 

Olivier works for organized crime. Essentially he's a hitman who refers to himself as a problem solver. But for as simple as this might look...appearances can be deceiving. Becoming a hitman was never his goal or ambition for him it was more about circumstances and circumstances are that he has a sister and a niece whom he loves dearly and will protect at any cost and if that cost is doing what he's told to without asking questions...he'll do it.

 

He's never questioned this or really thought about it. Guilt and fear are foreign concepts for him until the day he meets the twin brother of his latest victim. Suddenly he's having dreams about the past...about lives long gone, where history seems to repeat itself over and over again and he's finding that he seems to care about more than the well being of just his sister and niece, but still putting them at risk isn't an option.

 

Cody walked away from his family fifteen years ago when his father rejected them and he's never looked back. All it takes to disrupt his well ordered life is an e-mail from his twin brother's wife telling him that his brothers dead. The coroner says 'overdose' but his sister-in-law says murder. Cody wants answers and without really giving things a second thought Cody heads back to New York a place he swore never to go back to.

 

While 'Olivier' didn't work as well for me as 'Gideon' or 'Jaeger' there was still a lot about this story that I really liked.  While the attraction between Olivier and Cody was strong. Initially it felt more like a physical thing and the subsequent emotional connection came as they spent time together and the story progressed.

 

I also liked the conflict that was essentially always there as a result of Cody and Olivier's objectives being at odds with each other.

 

While I liked the ending it also felt a little too abrupt for me and while 'Gideon' and 'Jaeger' felt like they ended with an HEA this one felt like we were being left with an HFN, with strong potential but still not the HEA that these two men really deserved.

 

'The Order of the Black Knight' is not a romance series...these stories have a strong mystical element to them and they are definitely second chance stories about finding and giving forgiveness, seeking redemption and ultimately finding love.
