Dire Straits (Aspen Falls #4) by Melissa Pearl & Anna Cruise
Dire Straits (Aspen Falls #4) - Anna Cruise,Melissa Pearl

Dire Straits is the fourth book in the Aspen Falls series, and we get to know Jessica and Jarrett a bit better. Both of them are unhappy in their current jobs/situation, but neither of them feel able to make a change. Just before Jessica has a week's vacation, a dead body is found. This leads to questions being asked by Jarrett and Jess, both professionally and personally.

 

The romance side of this was a slow burn, and going behind closed doors when necessary. The mystery side kept me guessing all the way through, although I had my own suspects.

 

There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, and I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It is always a pleasure to catch up with old characters, and I loved the cameos we got.

 

This is a great series that I am thoroughly enjoying. Can't wait for the next one.

 

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. *

Audiobook Review: Harbour Falls (A Harbour Falls Mystery, #1) by S.R. Grey (Author), Kelley Ernst (Narrator)
Harbour Falls - S.R. Grey

 

Audiobook Review: Harbour Falls (A Harbour Falls Mystery, #1) by S.R. Grey (Author), Kelley Ernst (Narrator)

S.R. Grey reminds me why I fell in love with puzzles. Harbour Falls is a cryptogram waiting to be solved. The clues are a seduction. The red herrings are abundant and the heat is on fire. Maddy finds her heart on the line and maybe her health, when looks into solving an age old mystery. The prime suspect is the man that haunts her every waking moment. Should she trust her instincts or listen to her heart? Ernst narration stirs the hairs on your neck as Grey sends chills up your spine.

Midnight Hour: A Shadow Falls Novel - C. C. Hunter

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I received this book through The Reading Room/Bookstr in exchange for an honest review. 

I requested this book because I liked the cover and the idea of a witch who is dyslexic. I was blown away when I finally read it.

This is the first book I have read in either of the Shadow Falls book series, but after reading it, I am thinking of going back and reading the other books.

I'm not a huge fans of romantic books or love triangles and while those elements are incorporated into this novel, there is tons of other stuff going on, which make it a great read. The book flows through various struggles from the everyday (test-taking, studying, romance, friendship, fights with parents) to the extreme (kidnapping, crazy warlock conspiracies, being wrongfully accused, undercover work, evil family members). This book basically has it all. It combines romance with the paranormal and criminal investigations. And it is so entertaining.

The thing that really interested me about this book initially was that Miranda is dyslexic. At the beginning of the novel, Miranda views it as "a curse" and struggles with it. But by the end, she realizes it is "a gift". I think Hunter did a pretty fair job of showing how dyslexia can make some things harder, but it also helps people see things in a different way than non-dyslexic people. The narration doesn't go into too much detail about what it is like to have dyslexia, but it expresses an overall attitude about accepting it. 

My only critique is that this is a huge book. It's a little over 400 pages long. It only took me about two weeks to read because I was so engrossed in it, but my thumb is killing me after holding is open for so long during binge-reads. There are a few slow moments that didn't seem necessary and could have made the book more concise if they'd been cut. It kind of drags on at times. But overall, I found it fascinating and really enjoyed the writing and the characters. This seems like one of those series you can just lose yourself in. 

Thanks a lot, C.C. Hunter. Now I have to go back and read the other eight books (and short stories). You have found yourself a new fan.

Great Contemporary Romance
Getting Out of Hand: Sapphire Falls book one - Erin Nicholas

Getting Out Of Hand by Erin Nicholas is a fantastic read.  Ms. Nicholas has delivered a well-written book and packed it full of amazing, lovable characters.  Adrianne moved to Sapphire Falls after having a heart attack from her high-stress life.  Mason returns to Sapphire Falls when his best friend insists.  Adrianne and Mason's story is full of drama, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed reading Getting Out Of Hand, it was a fun read and I look forward to my next book by Erin Nicholas.  Getting Out Of Hand is book 1 of the Sapphire Falls Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) by Brenda Novak
When Snow Falls - Brenda Novak

Cheyanne Christensen is having one hell of a bad life. Her mother is dying of cancer and is a bitter, manipulative bitch; her sister is wild and on drugs half the time; she is in secretly in love with the same guy her BFF is actively chasing; and it's Christmas, so the artificial cheerfulness of the season is just annoying cherry on top. I really liked Cheyanne - she had every right to be a horrible person, but she is a smart, sweet, hard-working, and loyal person. So when Dylan Amos, of the infamous Amos brothers, walks into her life the chaos gets straighten out somewhat and Cheyanne finds someone she can be real with. 

 

I love Cheyanne and Dylan! They were real adults navigating the ups and downs of a relationship while dealing with their families' reputations from the rest of the small town and their prejudices. I feel they really deserved their HEA. The only part of the romance I didn't like was their first time together; Cheyanne's reasons for being a 31 year old virgin were true to her character so her ripping off her clothes so quickly seemed out of character. I really liked reading a romance between two people without money being thrown around to show "charm" and "romance". 

 

I didn't care for anyone else in this story. Eve, Chey's BFF, was too obnoxious and preaching her prejudice in the hopes of breaking up Chey and Dylan. Joe was a bitter asshole and I am really not looking forward to his story later in the series. Piper, Chey's sister, had a heartbreaking story arc but I would like to see her in updates in later books but man was she a selfish brat to Chey!
