Set in the gorgeous Belgrade Lakes of Maine in summer, 1966:

 

Every family has its secrets…

 

Summer, 1966: For thirteen-year-old Gus LeGarde, summertime always means Loon Harbor, his grandparents’ idyllic fishing resort on Great Pond. The season is a grand tradition of swimming, boating, and new adventures with his best friends, twins Siegfried and Elsbeth. But this summer, everything changes when a new lodge down the shore threatens the resort—and triggers a chain of events that will transform Gus and his friends forever.

 

Customers are leaving Loon Harbor in droves for The Seven Whistles, owned by the wealthy LaFontaines. The Baton Rouge family arrives with better amenities and a much larger staff—among them Wilhelmina “Willy” DuPont, a young black girl whose family works for the LaFontaines. Gus and the twins immediately bring Willy into their circle…but their friendship is soon challenged when events at The Seven Whistles take a terrifying turn.

 

A mysterious figure haunts the windows of women and young ladies at both camps, escalating from peeper to dangerous stalker. Then the LaFontaines’ spoiled and demanding daughter goes missing—and Willy’s innocent older brother is arrested.

Gus soon discovers that dark secrets lurk beneath the surface of the LaFontaine family, and the stakes are higher than ever imagined as they race to exonerate Willy’s brother and find the real perpetrator—before he finds them.

 

From bestselling author, Aaron Paul Lazar, comes a mystery you don’t want to miss. And, while it’s book #11 in the LeGarde Mysteries, it has a beginning, middle, and end, and can be read as a stand-alone!

Quick Read
Double Protection: Menage Suspense Romance - Selina Coffey

Double Protection by Selena Coffey is a fairly short contemporary romance, a great choice for those with limited reading time.  This is a menage romance though, so it may not be for everyone.  Allison is a college student that accepts a date with her professor.  After the date she is the witness to a murder.  Hank is a police detective and guards Allison along with Allison's professor, Carlson.  Their story is full of drama, humor, steamy sex and suspense.  I enjoyed this quick read and look forward to reading more from Selena Coffey.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Contemporary Romance
Shattered Daddy: A Billionaire Suspense ... Shattered Daddy: A Billionaire Suspense Romance - Charlize Starr

Shattered Daddy by Charlize Starr is an entertaining second chance contemporary romance.  This book is written in first person, alternating point of view, not my favorite, but that's a personal preference.   Ms. Starr has given us a well-written book loaded with fantastic characters.  Anthony and Brooke were best friends growing up.  Anthony moves back to town with his son.  Brooke is being stalked and blackmailed.  Their story is full of drama, action, sizzle and humor.  I enjoyed this story and would happily read more from Charlize Starr in the future.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Come Sundown by Nora Roberts - My Thoughts
Come Sundown - Nora Roberts

I generally really enjoy Nora's stand-alone big suspensy type novels, but this one just took SO long to get going I was afraid it might even become a DNF!

First off, maybe it's just me, but has Nora become rather enamoured of the woman kept prisoner by the loony-tune guy over the past few books?  That's the basis for the suspense here. 

The first... oh, almost 55% of the book is spent getting to know the characters, and getting to know how the resort works. We see Nora building her trio of couples - another of her tropes that seems to now have made it's way into the one-of books.  And there wasn't even any friction or anything between the heroine and the hero.  Just alot of dancing around each other in a very pleasant bantery sort of way.  It was at this point that I was about ready to throw in the towel and that's rare for me, especially with a Nora book.  But all of a sudden, things actually began to happen! 

I devoured the last 40% of the book today.  Couldn't put it down. Even enjoyed the twist at the end which really shouldn't have been a twist but she got me anyway.  *LOL*

So in the end, it was far from the best Nora I've read, but still worth a 3.5 star rating.

Shatter by Jocelynn Drake and Rinda Elliott - My Thoughts
Shatter - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

This is my m/m romance catnip.  There's action, there's a mystery of some sort, there's a band of brothers, there's humour and there's some hot sexytimes. 

This is Snow's story.  Snow, or Dr. Ashton Frost, is, as his name implies, somewhat cold and standoffish - walls up for everyone except maybe his three closest friends.  He's a brilliant surgeon and sexy as hell.  Well, right up my alley, anyway.  A ghost from his past is haunting him and he's framed for a murder and his found family is under attack and of course he's trying to deal with it on his own.

Enter Jude Torres, paramedic whose had his eye on the good doctor for a while.  He's a big, handsome, smart caregiver and he's determined not to let Snow handle this unravelling situation on his own.  He's had a sort of crush on the good doctor for a while, but tragedy brings them together and the attraction catches fire in all the best ways. 

I like Snow and Jude together.  They are good for each other.   They have great banter, which is another of my catnips.  And they just naturally have great physical chemistry too.  Sometimes that doesn't come across in these romances, but here it's loud and clear and I love it! 

So if like me, you're a fan of Abi Roux's Cut and Run series, or any of S.E. Jakes' series or Rhys Ford's series, I think you'd like this.  I did.  :)
