CURSED LAIRD by Tina Nina
Cursed Laird - Tara Nina

Caledonia finds a statue in Loch Tay and her salvage company brings it up. Her ex-husband turns up in town wanting her to go back to work for his salvage company. Caledonia says no but he won't give up and spies on her. Caledonia has been hearing voices connected to a poem she found as a child. Now the voices have meaning for her with the retrieval of the statue who turns human at night. Struan is uncertain what is going on. It is up to one of the spirits who Caledonia has heard to explain it to Struan. He is attracted to Caledonia as she is to him. But will they act upon the attraction? Will Struan's curse be lifted? Will they be together? Will Kip destroy what Caledonia and Struan have?

 

I enjoyed this story. I liked Caledonia and Struan. I also liked her parents and the O'Reilly brothers who work for Caledonia. They provide comic relief. I like the uncertainty between Caledonia and Struan of who will speak of love first. I found his brothers dropping hints for what Struan had to do funny. They would not come out and say what he and she had to do. Caledonia was oblivious to the hints

 

I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

A DOSE OF MURDER by Lori Avocato
A Dose of Murder - Lori Avocato

Pauline is burned out as a nurse so she quits and finds a job as a medical fraud investigator. She is sent after a woman she went to school with who is suspected of faking an injury to collect worker's comp. She is to follow and get pictures of her doing things that will negate her worker's comp claim. She is quickly taught how to do the job by Goldie. Then Jagger turns up and takes over her training including getting her involved in his case. Will she succeed? Will they trust each other? Will they solve their cases?

 

I had a blast with this book. I plan to read others in this series. Pauline is funny. She is in over her head and reminds you of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum but she has managed not to blow up a car yet. She is smart and it takes her some time, at times, to understand what she is to do but once she does she is off and running Jagger is mysterious and sexy. He always turns up when Pauline needs him but he gives nothing away. She is always questioning and receiving no answers from him. But somehow they seem to come together. I am going to enjoy watching them.

 

The story was funny. Watching them work the case is a riot because Jagger knows what is going on but Pauline is operating in the dark most of the time. The world building is good and I look forward to more of Pauline and Jagger.

THE SOLDIER'S SCOUNDEL by Cat Sebastien
The Soldier's Scoundrel - Cat Sebastian
Jack Turner does discreet private investigations for people. He also solves their problems. Oliver Rivington is the youngest son of the Earl of Rutland and he comes to Jack to find out what Jack was doing for his sister. While there, Lady Wraxhall comes in and wants Jack to find out who wants to blackmail her over letters she wrote years ago to a hometown beau. Jack takes on the case and Oliver goes along with him to stop him from breaking the law. Along the way the two men fall in love but neither tells the other. Oliver's brother-in-law dies and both suspect more than an accidental death. So they both look into it. Was it murder or just an accident? Will they stay together?

I enjoyed this book. I liked Jack and Oliver. They were total opposites in their outlooks on life but they cared about each other. No matter what circumstances were thrown at them they overcame it though it was close for a while there. The secondary characters were there to move the story along. I had questions about them but most were answered.

I enjoy Cat Sebastian's writing and will be reading more of her.

Excerpt 

Copyright 2021 @Louise Lennox

 

When I pull up to Tara’s home, I’m both displeased and impressed. On one hand, It’s a big beautiful white farmhouse with a wraparound porch. It looks timeless and unique. Much like Tara herself. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn she picked this home for herself. But it’s very far off the road and isolated on about twenty acres of farmland. A single mother and her kids shouldn’t be out here all by themselves. And tonight, she’s solo. If she caught me checking on her, there’s no way I could play it cool like I was in the neighborhood.

 

There is no neighborhood.

 

By the time I gradually drive up her private gravel road, I’m soaked to the core. As I get closer, I can barely make out anything in front of me, but I see her slight frame sitting on the steps with her head in her hands. She’s sitting on a porch in the eye of an oncoming storm. My bike has a loud purr, but she doesn’t even look up.

 

Her environmental awareness is shit. We’ll have to work on that.

 

I turn off the engine and hit the kickstand. Taking my helmet off, I approach. She’s shuddering…crying.

 

Only when I call her name does she look up.

 

“Tara, what’s wrong?” I force myself to calm down; I can’t spook her.

 

When she looks at me and I’m not prepared for what I see. I expected shock and even some anger. I thought she might wonder how the hell I got to her home. I thought she’d accuse me of stalking her and order me away. Instead, she looks wrecked. Her eyes are weak from crying. Her beautiful skin is red, raw from her tears. And her lips are trembling. The entire scene is a knife straight to my heart.

 

“What happened,” I growl, losing tolerance for this entire scene.

 

She sniffles. “Jason… he… he…” That’s as far as she gets before her body crumbles into itself, tormented with fresh tears. I get out of the rain and join her on the porch. Sitting next to her, I pull her into my arms. She crawls into my lap and sobs on my chest for a good five minutes. I stroke her hair and soothe her with firm circles to her back, placing soft kisses in her wet hair.

 

“Shh Angel. It’s going to be alright. No one is going to hurt you. But you’ve got to tell me what happened. Did Jason hurt you? Can we go inside and talk about it?”

 

She lifts and looks at me with a defeated gaze. “

 

No. That’s just it. I can’t get inside. Jason had the locks changed while I was at work tonight. I can’t even get into my house!”

 

The tree branches are swaying, and the wind grows fierce. We have to get out of here soon.

 

“Angel, listen to me. You can tell me all the details later, and I promise I will help you get back into your house. But this storm is picking up and no locksmith will come by in this weather tonight. Is there anywhere I can take you? You need shelter. What about your mother’s? or Symone’s?”

 

She grabs on to my leather cut with a frantic look. “No! Please. It’s too embarrassing. My mother has enough to deal with, she doesn’t need to know I’m homeless too. At least not tonight. And I don’t want the kids to find out. Symone and Rhue have done so much for me already. I just can’t ask them for another thing.”

 

Her pride is admirable, but silly given the circumstances.

 

“Then come home with me.” I say it on impulse, but I’m certain it’s what I want.

“What?! No, I can’t impose. That wouldn’t be proper.”

 

I chuckle. “Angel, if we don’t get inside soon, this storm will scatter our proper bodies across the marsh. It is going to be a level two within the hour. I have a four-bedroom home on Kiawah. You will have your own room and bed, and you can take tonight to think through your options and rest. I promise you my intentions are honorable.”

 

She looks at me for a long moment with a partially opened mouth and I’m sure she’ll say no. But then she closes it to bite her bottom lip and my dick rouses to attention.

 

Down, boy.

 

I can’t touch her. She doesn’t need that right now. Finally, she purses her lips in a little determined grimace and nods yes. “Ok, Cameron. Thank you.”

 

I smile. “Great. But we can’t ride my bike in this weather. I was taking a chance driving it over here, but that’s a chance I was taking on myself alone. Can we take your truck?”

She stands and sticks out her hand to help me up. I laugh at the gesture. She’s sweet, but I have at least 100 pounds on her. Still, I take her hand.

 

“You can park your bike here. No one should bother with it.” She looks down at the floor of her porch and crosses her arms in front of her. “I’m so sorry Cameron, this is crazy. Are you sure it’s OK for me to impose on you like this? I can get a hotel room or something. I was so shocked, I kind of just fell and landed here.”

 

I pinch her chin and raise her eyes to mine.

 

“Tara, you are never an imposition. You are a privilege. How often does one get to host an angel?”

 

She finally smiles, and I pull her in close to whisper alongside the shell of her ear.

“I’m going to take excellent care of you, for as long as you allow it. Let’s Go.”

 

We turn toward the car and dash out into the storm, hand in hand.

 

Hopefully, by tomorrow all will be clear.

THE ARRANGEMENT 1 by Abby Weeks
The Arrangement 1 - Abby Weeks

Walter has received a promotion and life as he and April know it will change. First they move, get new furniture, look at boarding school, then April realizes more will change. As she meets the partners and their wives, she knows there is much she has not been told.

 

I liked April. I dislike Walter. The partners are on the periphery now. I suspect I'll learn more of them and their wives in the next episodes of this series. I think I know what will be going on. Something tells me I will never like Walter but I do not know if I will like any of the others.

 

This book is the set up for the series. The world building is good. I feel like April. I'm confused and at a loss as to what to expect and what is expected of April. I hope to find out soon what happens.
