“At Dawn – An Alex Troutt Thriller (Book 4)” by John W. Mefford

I love a good thriller. This is an alluring novel that captured my full attention; I did not want to put this book down.
The lead female character Alex has gone on vacation with her kids to her old hometown. Alex’s Dad seems to be doing well, but Alex is left with many uncertainties and questions regarding his situation. Something isn’t quite right. Meanwhile the drug cartel has kidnapped a college boy. Being an FBI Agent, Alex finds herself partnering with the Investigator who is trying to determine the whereabouts of the young man.
There are so many twists to this novel. I am looking forward to reading more of her character in other books by John W. Mefford!

I give it a 5/5 rating!

Alex Troutt Thriller, Book #4
AT Dawn
FBI Special Agent Alex Troutt returns in a twisting, heart-pounding thriller.
Three flashes of light illuminate a dark sky. An unspeakable evil devours its prey.
The shimmering view of the sun-drenched ocean can often be nothing more than a mirage. For Alex Troutt, a trip back home for a much-needed summer vacation proves only one thing: greed rules. But how it takes root could destroy her world.
Fueled by the lust of power and money, the shadow of death envelopes her seaside hometown, including those closest to Alex. But as disconnected investigations converge into one focal point, Alex will stop at nothing to blow the entire crime ring straight to hell—even if she has to make the ultimate sacrifice…her life.

“Bad Boys After Dark: Mick” by Melissa Foster

This novel was a riveting romance! The fiery passion between Amanda and Mick was intense and undeniable.
Beyond the explicit details of their rendezvous, which was well-written, the novel had wonderful love story. There were moments of humour which at times brought a great comic relief to their whirlwind romance & desire for one another.
This book encapsulates a truly passionate love story. It was a fantastic read!!

RELEASING JUNE 22ND……..
Bad Boys After Dark: Mick
Indulge your inner vixen…
You asked for naughtier lovers, with the same fierce loyalty as The Bradens – Meet the Bad Boys… Four sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies.
Everything’s naughtier after dark…
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she’s researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She’s waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action—and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.
Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn’t do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.
Amanda thinks she’s hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man—until she discovers the man she’s made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick’s already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction—no strings, no regrets, and for goodness’ sake, come Monday, no quitting—the tables turn, and Mick’s totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.
The Bad Boys are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

“Violated” by Carolyn Arnold

#liveforward

My Review:
This book is an extraordinary murder mystery. It is riddled with suspense and you will not want to put this book down. While FBI Agent Paige Dawson sets out on a personal mission to confront a man who had raped her friend many years ago, she becomes the focus of his murder investigation, where she is the prime suspect. Her team is working relentlessly to prove her innocence, but the evidence just keeps piling up and pointing towards her.
This is a mystery that will keep you speculating where the truth lies…up until the very end.

New Release….
Sometimes the past should stay there…
The murder is one of the most heinous FBI agent and profiler Brandon Fisher has ever seen. But that’s not why he and two members of the team are rushing to California. The Bureau is interested because the prime suspect is one of their own, Paige Dawson.
But Paige didn’t go to Valencia to kill anyone. She had set out on “vacation”—her new lover in tow—only to confront the man who raped her friend twenty-some years ago. While the hands of the law are tied, she wants him to face the fact that he destroyed a young woman’s life and know that, as an FBI agent, she’ll be watching his every move. Yet, instead of accomplishing her goal, she wound up in the back of a police cruiser.
Now Paige must face off with a hard-nosed detective determined to stick a murder charge to a fed. But with the trained eyes of the FBI on the case, it’s becoming more and more obvious that the evidence lends itself to a serial killing, not an isolated incident. And as long as the local authorities are focused on Paige, the real murderer is still out there, possibly waiting to strike again…

‘A Flair for Chardonnay’ by Deborah Garner

My review:
This book is a very well-written mystery that kept my attention and most of all kept me guessing throughout the story. I absolutely loved this novel! It encompassed my favourite things: wine, chocolate, and mystery. The intertwined erroneous relationships of the family and its business will keep you guessing who the murderer is until the very end. It was riddled with suspects.
Sadie was a fantastic character! She was trying to help solve this mystery in order to help her friend Matteo, who she did not believe could ever commit such a crime. Considering the dysfunctional dynamics of Matteo’s family & business, everyone was suspect.
Love the writing style of the author. I would highly recommend her work!

My rating: 5/5

When flamboyant senior sleuth Sadie Kramer learns the owner of Cioccolato, her favorite chocolate shop, is in trouble, she heads for the California wine country with a tote-bagged Yorkie and a slew of questions. The fourth generation Tremiato Winery promises answers, but not before a dead body turns up at the vintners’ scheduled Harvest Festival.
All four Tremiato siblings have possible motives, as well as a few peripheral acquaintances, but only one could be the guilty party. As Sadie juggles truffles, tips and turmoil, she’ll need to sort the grapes from the wrath in order to find the identity of the killer.

Costa Book Award for First Novel finalist
Dagger Award finalist

Newly single mom Beth has one constant, gnawing worry: that her dreamy eight-year-old daughter, Carmel, who has a tendency to wander off, will one day go
missing.

And then one day, it happens: On a Saturday morning thick with fog, Beth takes Carmel to a local outdoor festival, they get separated in the crowd, and Carmel is gone.

Shattered, Beth sets herself on the grim and lonely mission to find her daughter, keeping on relentlessly even as the authorities tell her that Carmel may be gone for good.

keep in her head, at all times, a vision of her mother …

I love my coffee and have tried many kinds. I have found a delicious dark roast made by Canadian company Beaver Rock Roastery that is totally perfect! Beaver Rock Roastery has introduced the first fully recyclable single serve coffee cup! These cups are Keurig compatible. This coffee has a dark smooth flavour, not bitter and no undesirable aftertaste. I can’t wait to push the brew button every morning. I drink coffee throughout the day also, it is my preferred drink.

I have a Hamilton Beach FlexBrew coffee maker and this is the ideal coffeemaker for our house. My husband likes a milder coffee and uses the glass carafe, and I love a dark roast and use the single serve side for my very own fresh cup of coffee each and every time.

“Starfish Island” by Deborah Brown

The twists and turns of this book will keep you guessing ’til the end!

I loved reading this novel. It was a fabulous combination of romance, mystery, and deception. This one definitely left me in suspense all throughout. I was rooting for Michael and Nicole’s romance, but as the characters unfolded, each chapter left me questioning who was being genuine and who was deceptive.

With each Chapter I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. As Nicole faced her frustrations regarding the events that were occurring, I was curious as to how she would get to the bottom of everything.

I love novels that exude suspense and make you question the sincerity of the characters.
It was a thrilling and well-written story. I can’t wait to read more from this author!

About the Author

I’ve been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer… and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.
