Her Christmas Guardian by Shirlee McCoy
Her Christmas Guardian (Mission: Rescue Book 2) - Shirlee McCoy

TO SAVE HER DAUGHTER

Former army ranger Boone Anderson immediately senses danger when he spots Scout Cramer and her precious little girl while holiday shopping. Then two cars suddenly give chase in the parking lot—kidnapping the child. His worst suspicions are confirmed, and professional instincts propel him into action. Having lost his own infant daughter years before, Boone is determined to reunite the beautiful single mother and her missing child. But when a secret from Scout’s past finally catches up to her, she must work with her self-appointed guardian to save her daughter. Before the kidnappers cancel Christmas for all of them…permanently.

Mission: Rescue—No job is too dangerous for these fearless heroes (from Goodreads)

Series: #2 in the Mission: Rescue series

Rating: 3 stars

First things first, BOONE IS PERFECTION. Okay, no, but seriously, I adore Boone. He is my favourite Love Inspired Suspense guy thus far. He’s sarcastic and loves food and God. What else do you need in a guy?

This was good for Love Inspired Suspense, I’ve read much worse. But to be honest, when the book is centered around a single mother whose child has been kidnapped, it’s hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that while in a blind panic trying to find her child, she has the mental capacity to fall in love? I don’t know, it’s never really sat well with me. Plus, in the same notion, the stakes are different so while it’s terrible (no child should have to go through that) it doesn’t live up to the suspense part of the name, because from what the readers are getting, nothing really suspenseful is happening. All that is happening to the child, but because we’re from the point of the parent(s), we don’t get that. We just get blind panic.

The fact that Scout (I love this name by the way) had a bad head injury and insisted on never following Boone’s orders, putting herself in danger countless times, kind of irked me. I get it, her daughter has been kidnapped and that’s terrible, no parent or child should have to go through that and the fact that they do sickens me, but she should’ve rested in the hospital and let HEART and the FBI do their jobs, because putting herself on death’s doorstep is not going to help Lucy.

Celtic Myth & Magick: Harness the Power of the Gods & Goddesses - Edain McCoy

I finished reading what I wanted to read from this book, but that was only the first 10% of the book. What I read I enjoyed and would recommend to Celtic pagans as a good reference material, but I am not going to label this "read" and have it count towards my reading goal because I have read so little from it. I am not a practitioner, just wanted to studied the subject a little more to widen my knowledge base.

RELEASE BLAST & REVIEW - The Snow Owl (The Alder Tales #4) by R.S. McCoy
The Snow Owl - RS McCoy
The Snow Owl concludes The Alder Tales and as such, you would expect to have the loose ends tied up. R.S. McCoy does this in such a way that your heart is pounding as you read through the book. You WANT that happy ending, and yet you are really unsure if you will get it.
 
Each of the pairs we have met previously get their time. We catch up with all of them and so we understand on an even deeper level just how their lives will change going forward. There is a whole new twist to the story too, that I for one did not see coming.
 
This author manages to turn something around on it's head, until you are unsure if you are rooting for the character, or loathe them. Stunning wordsmithery!
 
There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing was smooth, as were the transitions from one scene to the next. I absolutely recommend this book, but I would also recommend you start from the beginning. This is a series, and not a set of standalones.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
