Review: Targeted for Danger

Targeted for Murder

The following reviews are for six of the eight novellas in the Targeted for Danger collection. This was a collection I purchased and really enjoyed as a fan of suspense.

Crossfire by Susan May Warren

CrossfireWow! Even though this is a novella, it is packed with a powerful backstory, a believable love story, and a good dose of danger! It was the wonderful blend of these three things that kept me reading anxiously to see how everything would turn out.

I really liked the two main characters, Kade and Haddie. They had a complicated past of unrequited love and lost chances. This story is connected to the Montana Rescue series because there are a couple of characters from that series who show up in this book. However, it can be read as a stand alone story if you have not read the other series.

Deadly Secrets by Margaret Daley

Deadly Secrets
I could not put this thrilling novella down! Right from the start, danger wove its way onto the pages of this highly emotional story. The author was able to illustrate the powerful impact that secrets have on families and relationships. I enjoyed the way the secrets were slowly revealed throughout this novella, even as it was hard to see those secrets come to light and the hurt that they could cause. I loved these two main characters! Sarah and Hunter were great characters that I felt for and desired a happily ever after for.

Double Exposure by Elizabeth Goddard

Double Exposure
This novella was fast paced and full of danger! The author kept me guessing right up to the end. I loved the setting of the wolf sanctuary and the frantic race to stay alive. The characters were interesting and likable. This is another enjoyable novella that I read as a part of the Targeted for Danger collection. I would definitely recommend this collection (or the individual books) to fans of romantic suspense.

Lethal Homecoming by Lynette Eason

Lethal Homecoming
I really enjoyed this suspenseful tale. It was hard to know who exactly wanted Callie dead. I thought I knew, but I didn’t have everything quite figured out. Made for an exciting read!

I liked the characters and was happy for Callie and Nolan to perhaps get a chance at a happily ever after the second time around. Great for fans of romantic suspense.

Cold Terror by Susan Sleeman

Cold Terror
Cold Terror really kept me guessing! The suspense of who was trying to kill Hannah was very captivating and the attraction between the two main characters was ramped up for me by the past that they needed to overcome.

This was the first book that I have read by this author and I definitely plan to read more. It was also the introduction to a series that I look forward to reading.

Taken by Dark by Christy Barritt

Taken by Dark
After reading this novella as part of the Targeted for Danger collection, I am now determined to read the other books in the Carolina Moon series because I enjoyed this one so much!

The suspense was good. There were some dangerous situations and creepy scenarios. But, wow! The chemistry between these two characters fueled the story for me. I really enjoyed their backstory and hearing a bit about other characters in the series. Now, I just need to go read the other stories and find out what happened to bring certain people together!

This is really a top notch collection of romantic suspense novellas. I had some favorites in the group, but I enjoyed all of the stories that I read.

(5 stars)

Review: Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan

Deadly ProofI thoroughly enjoyed this legal thriller! The author made me feel as if I was in a law firm, trying to build a strategy, wade through documents, and work out how to win a case. It felt very realistic. Along with the legal drama, I thought that the suspense and danger were layered into the story nicely.

Overall, I was impressed with the reality of how a law firm works. I could also feel the enormity of power that a huge corporation can wield, especially with the right connections and legal backing. There was a light thread of romance, along with a clear spiritual message. I would definitely recommend this book to those who like reading legal thrillers.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Review: Just the Way You Are by Pepper Basham

Just the Way You AreThis was the first book that I have read by this author, and I can heartily and definitely say that it will not be the last! In fact, this story will be going on my “read again” shelf for sure!

What was so special about it? Well, for one, it had a bit of a fairy tale quality to it that really appealed to me. The single mom who loves her kids but definitely feels that she’s nothing special caught the attention of a handsome, charming, world-famous actor? Wow! This story was packed with swoony scenes that can take your breath away!

The next thing that charmed me about Just the Way You Are was the humor. It was not “over the top”, but it was there, and it was great! I had quite a few laugh out loud moments. These added so much fun to the novel.

Finally, this story had heart. So much heart! Both of the main characters, Eisley and Wes, felt real to me and I was desperate for things to work out for them. They also both carried heavy hurts from the past. These hurts and the resulting trust issues that arose from them were issues that were not easily overcome, giving this book the realism that balanced the fairy tale quality.

I loved this book from start to finish and I plan to read many more books by this author.

(5 stars)


Just the Way You AreSingle mom, Eisley Barrett, prefers to keep romance safely housed within a centuries-old mystery, but when she travels to England to unearth the secret, an actor with a sordid past offers her reluctant heart a very different type of discovery.

Wes Harrison has a past he’s ashamed to confess. Suspicious and cynical, he’s managed to avoid romantic entanglements since a tragedy upended his career and life, that is until American Eisley Barrett comes along. Her authenticity and kindness upend his bitter assumptions and send his heart into unscripted territory.

When his past threatens to ruin a second chance at love, can some Appalachian matchmaking and letters from the grave salvage their unexpected romance?

Review: Bringing Maggie Home by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Bringing Maggie HomeThis novel was so intriguing, so captivating, that it made me do something that I haven’t done in quite a long time…it made me stay up into the wee hours of the morning reading it!!! That’s right. I could not set this book down and go to sleep. I had to find out what really happened in the past to Hazel Mae’s sister! And even though I was so very tired the next day (which is why I don’t usually stay up late reading anymore) I was happy I did, because this book was worth it!

These characters were very interesting and there are quite a few flashbacks to the past, which I enjoyed a lot. The author switched between the three generations of DeFord women showing things from their perspectives in rotating chapters. This took a little getting used to at first. I had to keep reminding myself which woman’s viewpoint I was reading through. But, once I got that straight, I appreciated seeing how each woman viewed things.

This story really grabbed me. There was a very, very light romance flowing through it, however, that is not the main objective of this novel. The family relationship, letting go of animosity, realizing who God really is, and solving the mystery of Maggie’s disappearance propelled the story line and made this a book I truly enjoyed.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Bringing Maggie HomeDecades of Loss, an Unsolved Mystery,
and a Rift Spanning Three Generations

Hazel DeFord is a woman haunted by her past. While berry picking in a blackberry thicket in 1943, ten-year old Hazel momentarily turns her back on her three-year old sister Maggie and the young girl disappears.

Almost seventy years later, the mystery remains unsolved and the secret guilt Hazel carries has alienated her from her daughter Diane, who can’t understand her mother’s overprotectiveness and near paranoia. While Diane resents her mother’s inexplicable eccentricities, her daughter Meghan—a cold case agent—cherishes her grandmother’s lavish attention and affection.

When a traffic accident forces Meghan to take a six-week leave-of-absence to recover, all three generations of DeFord women find themselves unexpectedly under the same roof. Meghan knows she will have to act as a mediator between the two headstrong and contentious women. But when they uncover Hazel’s painful secret, will Meghan also be able to use her investigative prowess to solve the family mystery and help bothwomen recover all that’s been lost?

Review: To Wager Her Heart by Tamera Alexander

To Wager Her HeartTo Wager Her Heart was a great wrap up to the Belle Meade Plantation novels. Although if you haven’t read the other books, don’t worry, this one can be enjoyed as a stand alone novel.

This author always takes me right back in time and makes me feel as if I am really living in the time period that the book is written in. She also writes very realistic characters, which I enjoy. I liked Sy and Alexandra and appreciated that they were characters with good intentions and were both kind people. They were still human and carried various different fears and doubts. I enjoyed the slow building of their relationship.

I also liked learning even more about this time period, where tensions ran high and there was still much work to be done to help freedmen find empoloyment and education.

(4 stars)

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


To Wager Her HeartWith fates bound by a shared tragedy, a reformed gambler from the Colorado Territory and a Southern Belle bent on breaking free from society’s expectations must work together to achieve their dreams—provided that the truth doesn’t tear them apart first.

Sylas Rutledge, the new owner of the Northeast Line Railroad, invests everything he has into this venture, partly for the sake of the challenge. But mostly to clear his father’s name. One man holds the key to Sy’s success—General William Giles Harding of Nashville’s Belle Meade Plantation. But Harding is champagne and thoroughbreds, and Sy Rutledge is beer and bullocks. Sy needs someone to help him maneuver his way through Nashville’s society, and when he meets Alexandra Jamison, he quickly decides he’s found his tutor. Only, he soon discovers that the very train accident his father is blamed for causing is what killed Alexandra Jamison’s fiancee—and what has broken her heart.

Spurning an arranged marriage by her father, Alexandra instead pursues her passion for teaching at Fisk University, the first freedmen’s university in the United States. But family—and Nashville society—do not approve, and she soon finds herself cast out from both. Through connections with the Harding family, Alexandra and Sy become unlikely allies. And despite her first impressions, Alexandra gradually finds herself coming to respect, and even care for this man. But how can she, when her heart is still spoken for? And when Sy’s roguish qualities and adventuresome spirit smack more of recklessness than responsibility and honor?

Sylas Rutledge will risk everything to win over the woman he loves. What he doesn’t count on is having to wager her heart to do it.

Set against the real history of Nashville’s Belle Meade Plantation and the original Fisk University Jubilee Singers ensemble, To Wager Her Heart is a stirring love story about seeking justice and restoring honor at a time in history when both were tenuous and hard-won.

Review: I’ll Be There by Susan May Warren

I'll Be ThereI’ll Be There was simply a wonderful, wonderful book! It is connected to a few of the book series that are written by Susan May Warren. I knew Liza and Conner from the Montana Fire series and the Christiansen Family series. Knowing the background of these two characters, at the very least from the Montana Fire series is a must, in my opinion.

I absolutely loved this book! It was filled with romance, tension, and danger! This was a thrilling story in so many ways. Liza and Conner have been through so much and although they found their happily ever after in another story, this book tells what happens after that. If you have loved the Montana Fire series, then you will love this one, too. And if you loved the Christiansen Family series, the Montana Fire series is a great series to start next. I highly recommend.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


I'll Be ThereFrom a USA Today bestselling and RITA-award winning author, a novel uniting two beloved series:

Smokejumper Conner Young can’t wait to marry the woman who’s stood by him for three years as he fought fires in the forests of the northwest. The only wound in the weekend is the lack of his best man–a brother whose murder is still unsolved. It’s unfinished business that haunts him, keeping him from truly moving on.

Liza Beaumont, long time Deep Haven artist is a survivor of a brutal grizzly attack. Struggling with nightmares, she’s not sure she’s ready to join Conner’s world. He’s a hero, yes, but his life is rife with danger and stress and frankly she’s not sure she has the courage to be the wife of a man who may not come home again.

When Liza’s wedding invitation unearths a witness in his brother’s murder, Conner’s hope of solving the case is reignited. Suddenly, it’s a choice between showing up to help Liza knit together their perfect day–or tracking down his brother’s killer. But when his investigation finds its way to Deep Haven, and Liza’s life is threatened, there may not be a wedding at all.

What happens when the smokejumpers from Montana Fire come to Deep Haven? Sparks, fire and hopefully…a happy ending.

Review & Giveaway: Many Sparrows by Lori Benton

Many SparrowsMany Sparrows is definitely one of the best books that I have read this year! These characters just pulled me in. I felt heartache, frustration, desperation, hope, peace, love, and much more. The author elicited so many emotions from me while I read this novel.

I loved the two main characters in this story. I was amazed as I watched Clare’s growth throughout the novel. There were times, early on in the story, when Clare really struggled with controlling her reactions. She had to go through a lot and I was so impressed with what the author taught her on this journey. Many of the things that Clare had to learn were taught to her by Jeremiah. He had his own struggles, as well. I loved learning about him and seeing how he grew. The main characters and many of the side characters captured my attention and made this book one that I could hardly set down.

Finally, the author made me feel like I was really back in time while reading Many Sparrows. I was absolutely immersed in the time period, the customs, and the wildness of the setting. I highly recommend this wonderful novel!

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Many SparrowsEither she and her children would emerge from that wilderness together, or none of them would…

In 1774, the Ohio-Kentucky frontier pulses with rising tension and brutal conflicts as Colonists push westward and encroach upon Native American territories. The young Inglesby family is making the perilous journey west when an accident sends Philip back to Redstone Fort for help, forcing him to leave his pregnant wife Clare and their four-year old son Jacob on a remote mountain trail.
When Philip does not return and Jacob disappears from the wagon under the cover of darkness, Clare awakens the next morning to find herself utterly alone, in labor and wondering how she can to recover her son…especially when her second child is moments away from being born.

Clare will face the greatest fight of her life, as she struggles to reclaim her son from the Shawnee Indians now holding him captive. But with the battle lines sharply drawn, Jacob’s life might not be the only one at stake. When frontiersman Jeremiah Ring comes to her aid, can the stranger convince Clare that recovering her son will require the very thing her anguished heart is unwilling to do—be still, wait and let God fight this battle for them?

Review: Mail-Order Marriage Promise by Regina Scott

Mail Order Marriage PromiseThis was a sweet story! I felt so sorry for Dottie and what she had been through. She showed such bravery in her move out west! I loved the interactions and growing feelings between Dottie and John. Dottie battled trust issues and John battled self-worth issues. I liked the way both of the characters grew

This story can be read as a stand alone novel if you haven’t read the others in the series. The previous characters from the other books do make appearances in this one.  If you have read the stories you will enjoy seeing what they are all up to. Mail-Order Marriage Promise is a nice addition to the series.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first Regency romance novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Regency romance The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first novel to be published (March 1998). In 2011, she was delighted to move into Christian romance with the publication of The Irresistible Earl.

Besides her novels, Regina Scott has had published three Regency romance novellas (“The June Bride Conspiracy” in His Blushing Bride, “Sweeter Than Candy” in A Match for Mother, and “A Place by the Fire” in Mistletoe Kittens), which are now featured in electronic book form as Be My Bride. Her novels have been translated into Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese; and Lord Borin’s Secret Love and The Rake’s Redemption have been issued in hardcover, large print editions. Many of her works are also available as electronic books through Belgrave House’s Regency Reads line or as self-published works, such as Perfection.

Regina Scott and her husband are the parents of two sons. They reside in the Puget Sound area of Washington State and are members of the Church of the Nazarene. Born and raised in the Seattle area, Regina Scott is a graduate of the University of Washington. She comes by her writing talent naturally–both her parents were excellent writers in their vocations as teacher and electrical technician, now retired. Her mother envisioned the plot for “Sweeter Than Candy,” the novella which was written as a tribute to her.

Regina Scott is a devout Christian and a decent fencer; owns a historical, fantasy, and science fiction costume collection that currently takes up over a third of her large closet; and has been known to impersonate an independent consultant specializing in risk communication.

Review: Reunited by Danger by Carol J. Post

Reunited by DangerReunited by Danger was a very suspenseful story! It was so interesting to piece together the past events that led to the targeting of a group of friends. The danger to these characters ratcheted up with each turned page. I liked the way the author allowed the reader to understand more of the past, little by little, as clues were gathered.

I enjoyed the romantic tension that built between the two main characters, Caleb and Amber. They both had pasts that were haunting them and keeping them from moving on in their own various ways.

I thought that this book had a great combination of danger, romance, and intrigue and I definitely recommend it to those who enjoy romantic suspense. Reunited by Danger can be read as a stand alone.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Reunited by DangerWhen a former classmate is murdered at Detective Caleb Lyons’s ten-year high school reunion, he knows the victim’s old group of friends are keeping secrets. That includes Cedar Key, Florida, police officer Amber Kingston. Back in school, Amber was headed for trouble, but now she’s as dedicated to the law as he is. As he works overtime to get the pretty cop to open up to him, Amber and her friends receive messages threatening payback for past deeds. And her friends keep dying…one by one. But protecting Amber and unmasking a murderer isn’t just the widowed detective’s shot at redemption–it’s his unexpected second chance at love.

From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special-events decorating company, Carol J. Post’srésumé reads as if she hasn’t yet decided what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love of writing. She started as a child composing poetry for family and friends, then graduated to articles for religious and children’s publications. Now she pens fun, fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book award and selected as an RT Top Pick. When Carol isn’t writing, she enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. She also plays the piano and sings with her music-minister husband. Their two grown daughters and their grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all her nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.
