ARC REVIEW: MURDER NOTES ( Lilah Love Book One ) By New York Times Bestselling Author LISA RENEE JONES @LisaReneeJones






New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones’s heart-pounding thriller of a woman’s secrets—and a past that’s about to come out of hiding…
As an FBI profiler, it’s Lilah Love’s job to think like a killer. And she is very good at her job. When a series of murders surface—the victims all stripped naked and shot in the head—Lilah’s instincts tell her it’s the work of an assassin, not a serial killer. But when the case takes her back to her hometown in the Hamptons and a mysterious but unmistakable connection to her own life, all her assumptions are shaken to the core.
Thrust into a troubled past she’s tried to shut the door on, Lilah’s back in the town where her father is mayor, her brother is police chief, and she has an intimate history with the local crime lord’s son, Kane Mendez. The two share a devastating secret, and only Kane understands Lilah’s own darkest impulses. As more corpses surface, so does a series of anonymous notes to Lilah, threatening to expose her. Is the killer someone in her own circle? And is she the next target?

It doesn’t matter what I read of Lisa Renee Jones, I get pulled into the story to the exclusion of anything else. I know this would be a murder investigation but that was it. As with any book written Lisa, we have a strong intelligent female FBI agent Lilah Love, who was as thorny as any detective I’ve read about.
Coming from a rich background and being attractive is not an asset for an FBI profiler who moved to LA from The Hamptons to escape the family name. Unfortunately after a string of murders Lilah has to go home to follow the killer and straight into her past.
This was great I love every minute of this book, I don’t where to start except I can’t for wait for the next one. The longer the book goes on, the more layers and players appear. Until it appears like there is no one for Lilah to trust, including some of her family.
If you love Lisa’s complicated storylines you will be hooked, and waiting for book number two. This is so different for Lisa’s other works where the love story is not centre stage. The is about an FBI Profiler, and her story. If I could give this more than 5 stars I would. This is definitely a cut above normal.

ARC Review: FEARLESS, From Wall Street Journal and New York Times Bestselling Author CARLY PHILLIPS @carlyphillips


From Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips comes a powerful new story of love, hope and redemption, of finding light in the darkest places.

Fearless, an all-new emotional standalone by Carly Phillips is now LIVE!


Fall in love with the Wards…

Mechanic and garage owner, Kane Harmon is used to the wealthy beautiful women visiting his beach town. He doesn’t get involved because he knows most females would merely be slumming for the summer.

Except Halley Ward isn’t just passing through. She lives a solitary life in a bungalow on the beach. A woman tormented by her past, distant from her wealthy family, different from Kane’s usual fare of town girls who know his M.O.- Don’t expect more than he’s willing to give.

Kane rescues Halley and her broken down car from the side of the road and instantly he’s hooked. She says she’s not interested in him. He knows she lies. And he makes it his mission to bring her back to life, to return her emotionally to her family. To show her the colors around her were as vibrant as the ones she puts on her canvas.

Until past meets present and threatens all the progress they’ve made. Then it’s Halley’s turn to step up and stand up for the relationship and life she’s finally coming to believe she deserves



This is the first book in Rosewood Bay Series, but each a standalone. As I write this review the snow is falling and I can’t get warm. So strolling along the beach in the summer had me hooked, joking aside it was an enjoyable read. At times sad for Halley and what happened to her in foster care.
I have to say Kane is definitely book boyfriend material. Kane and Halley had known each since she was 13 and being bullied at school. Kane had stood up for her, but hadn’t seen her for years. So when Halley arrives at his garage Kane is overwhelmed and know he wants to get her on a date. It was beautiful to watch them fall in love, and Halley blossomed as she came to love and trust him.
There is lots going on in the book, and I don’t want to give anything away. We have some world building or should I say sightseeing, and I will be happy to visit again when Breathe comes out. This is a lovely romance Halley and Kane were perfect together, but with some real life issues for the couple had to work through.
