The Paris Spy
The Paris Spy - Susan Elia MacNeal

I cannot get enough of this series so when I saw this latest installment on Netgalley I just had to request it. No matter what is happening in my life I am always up for reading about Maggie Hope. This time Maggie is in Paris trying to find a spy that she believes might have been compromised and also trying to find her half-sister Elise.

 

While this was was not as dark as some previous books in the series this is still pretty dark and filled with heartbreak for Maggie and readers. As with the other books in the series this follows not only Maggie but other characters. You really grow close to the agents in Paris the more that you read and can't help but feel despair at what happens to certain characters.

 

One of my favorite parts of this book was the growing relationship between Maggie and her sister. They were able to really bond in this book and I hope their relationship gets a chance to grow even further in the future.

 

I was not expecting the ending and it has left me dying to know what happens next.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Room for Doubt
Room For Doubt (A Carol Childs Mystery) ... Room For Doubt (A Carol Childs Mystery) (Volume 4) - Nancy Cole Silverman

After the last book in this series I wasn't sure if I was going to continue reading this series. I ultimately decided to give this book a try and I am glad that I did. Carol is back with a really interesting mystery surrounding a death that police have ruled a suicide. Carol's investigation with the help of pesky but hunky PI Chase will lead her to discover covered up murders that just might lead her to a group of women determined to get justice.

 

I was glad that Carol didn't seem too over her head in the investigation in this book. Her decisions and behavior (especially towards the end) really surprised me. I have to admit that I didn't like the relationship between her and Chase or at least what it became. I liked it better when she was annoyed with him.

 

While the plot at times seemed a bit far-fetched I still really enjoyed this book. I look forward to reading more from this series.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Watching the Detectives
Watching the Detectives - Julie Mulhern

I'm starting to think that this series could never disappoint me. I cannot tell you what you I felt when I saw that there was a new book in this series. Needless to say I enjoyed this one as much as I have the others in the series.

 

Ellison is such a great character to follow. I love her sense of humor and how strong a woman she has become. She also can't help but find dead bodies which provides endless annoyance for her mother and ends up putting Ellison in danger.

 

I figured out what the first deceased character had been doing that caused her to be killed a little before it was revealed but I was still wrong about who killed her. Ellison and I were both surprised in the end.

 

The end with Ellison and Anarchy left me with hope for a future romance between them. But then again I've been hoping for a couple of books now.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

In The Heir (Westerly Billionaire #1) by Ruth Cardello
In the Heir (Westerly Billionaire Series Book 1) - Ruth Cardello

 

 

There are three lessons that my Grandmother taught me. A person is never too old to stop learning. It's not enough to crave or receive love, you must give love in return and lead by example. She was a wise woman, who was not afraid to practice what she preached. Until the day she died, she led by example in all she did. Including owning up to her mistakes. I still miss her, but carry all she taught me within my heart. The Westerly clan could have used some of her wisdom.

With In the Heir, Ms. Cardello lays the groundwork for rebuilding a broken family.
The Westerlys are far from perfect. Anger and pride has set to destroying a prominent dynasty. Can forgiveness, restore the foundation before it topples completely? In The Heir is a story of romance, friendships and family, that is written and rooted in the most powerful emotion in the world. LOVE.

Interesting beginning to a series
Slade, Book 1 in Team Greywolf Series - Eva Gordon

Cricket is a runt who has had to prove herself all her life. She is good at her job but wants out of her next assignment, calming Slade. Slade is working through grief and is a bit out of control. They spend time together and work together, until they cross a line. Danger pulls them apart and they realize they need to be together despite rules. I enjoyed the story although I found the narrator a little off, distracting.

I received this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.
