Mystery/Thriller with a dash of romance
Beneath Copper Falls (Rock Harbor Series) - Colleen Coble

Beneath Copper Falls by Colleen Coble is a crime thriller/romance for lovers of fast paced novels. This is the sixth book in the Rock Harbor series, but fear not, it can be read as a stand-alone. Since I have not read the others in the series, I can honestly say that I suffered no ill effects.

After leaving an abusive relationship, Dana Newell has returned home to the UP of Michigan and has a job waiting for her as a 911 dispatcher. She is excited to see her brother, her friends and have her life return to normal. She moves in with her brother and starts the process of rebuilding.

It appears nothing is going to work in Dana’s favor and a normal life is looking like a pipe dream. Especially considering that as soon as she arrives home in Michigan, her ex-boyfriend shows up and starts stalking her. Then on Dana’s first day at work she handles the 911 call from her friend Allyson an investigative reporter. She immediately dispatches the sheriff but it is too late. Allyson’s death is ruled an accident; but, Dana suspects otherwise. Allyson was working with Boone, a close friend of Dana’s brother, to solve the murder of his sister. Is there a serial killer about? Could Dana’s ex be mixed up in this somehow? Dana and Boone will have to learn to trust each other and work together if they are going to solve these crimes before someone else is murdered.

I loved that the opening grabbed me and willed me to keep reading from the get go. The pace was fast but not rushed and even though I figured out who the killer was early on; I found this did not detract from the story. There was enough other stuff going on to keep me reading. The intertwining relationship interjected a sense of realism I sometimes find lacking in thrillers. In addition, thrillers sometimes use action as a cover up for poorly developed characters, which is not the case here.

Beneath Copper Falls is a solid crime thriller that begs to be read in one sitting. It is perfect for those readers who love crime thrillers with a light touch of romance.

I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review

A super-cute YA romance/coming of age story.  Effortlessly readable, with characters that felt real and were likable.  A realistic look at a celebrities life from their side of the camera.  Seriously, It would suck to read about your supposed life on the front of a magazine cover at the grocery store…the price of fame, I guess… While the ending had a bit too much drama, especially when the book had stayed away from overdone drama most of the way through, I found this a refreshing read, and just what I needed.

 

Will I read more from this Author?  Yeah, I may do so soon, actually.

Rock Solid - Carly Phillips

This is the 4th book in the Book Boyfriend series and we finally get Connor Prescott's story.  Out of all the four guys, Connor was the one who was looking for love, babies and the white picket fence...problem was he never met the girl that he'd want all that with.  Connor doesn't believe in one night stands, but after getting stranded in Denver because of a snowstorm, his life is about to change.

Something about the mysterious woman is pulling him towards her and quickly things begin to ignite.  After a fun dinner in the airport, and realizing that Katie doesn't have anywhere to sleep because all of the hotels are booked, he offers her the second room in his suite to which she reluctantly accepts.  Connor learns that Katie had her heart broken while in Denver and wants to just make her happier.  Katie decides she wants Connor instead.  Pleading with him they agree to one night, but no sharing last names or even any personal information.  Connor wakes up the next morning wanting to continue things with Kate back in Chicago but finds out she has left.

Imagine his surprise 3 1/2 years later when Katie shows up at his office explaining that he's a dad to 3 year old Leah and she finally found out who he was because she saw his picture on the cover of Chicago Magazine.  Considering Connor has never forgotten Katie, he takes this a great sign....the family he always has wanted.  Katie is just not sure of the situation.  All the men in her past have always proven to be jerks and Katie is not sure that she wants to drag Leah through anything.  Over the course of time Connor and Katie spend more time together, along with Leah.  Problem is is that Katie is not ready to fully commit and Connor is getting tired of waiting.

It took a long time for Connor and Katie to find their happy ending but it was so worth it!  I really loved Connor...such a great, perfect guy.  It was understandable how Katie was being based on her past, but at times I wanted to kick her in the butt and say guys like this don't come around that often!  Then there is Leah...she was such a fun, cute little girl!  Overall, this book was a great ending to this series and I'm sad it's over.  I sure hope Carly Phillips and Erika Wilde are putting out another series together!

Review For: Rock Solid by Carly Phillips
Rock Solid - Carly Phillips
Rock Solid by Carly Phillips is book four in the "Book Boyfriend" series. This is the story of Connor Prescott and Katie Kaswell. This can easily be a standalone alone book I thought. Connor and Katie happen to have a chance meeting while waiting for their flights that were delayed due to a snow story. Katie traveled to meet her boyfriend of 8 months to surprise him on Valentines day, but sadly she was the one surprised. Work travel has Connor being stranded when he notices Katie. Later that day they happen to meet again at a busy restaurant while they are having to wait for another flight out. Katie tells Connor her sad story of finding out her boyfriend has been having an affair. Over bonding about their stranded state they have a night of passion but in the morning they pull away. Now almost four years later we find Katie fell pregnant and had a baby girl. Since Katie and Connor didn't exchange full names she had no way to find him. She just knows like her they have a Chicago connection. Then one day she sees his picture and name in the paper and goes forward to let him know that about their child. Connor is shocked by moves forward to be in his daughter life. But Connor wants more from Katie. Loved this second chance at love story...could not put it down. https://twitter.com/soapsrus68 https://www.facebook.com/RomanceBookReview http://booklikes.com/blog http://sissymaereads.blogspot.com/ https://romancebookreviewforyou.wordpress.com/ https://www.tumblr.com/blog/romancebookreviewforyoublog
