“Convenient Lies” by Robin Patchen ~ Book Review

 

 

Convenient Lies (Hidden Truth #1)

“Convenient Lies” by Robin Patchen

Book One in the Hidden Truth series

Review copy from the author through JustReadTours Blind Date program

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

About the Book:

She married her enemy… 

When investigative journalist Reagan McAdams discovers her new husband is part of an international crime family, she flees Paris with their newborn and returns to her childhood home in New Hampshire to gather enough money to disappear forever. She’ll do whatever it takes to protect her son from his criminal father.

He never quit loving her. 

Rae’s first love, Brady Thomas, discovers she’s home and in trouble. She won’t tell him what’s going on, but he’s a detective. He’ll figure it out. He’s going to protect her and her son, whether she wants his help or not.

Her enemy nears.

Rae would love nothing more than to fall into Brady’s arms, to allow him to protect her and her son, but getting involved with him will only put Brady on harm’s way. When Rae’s husband closes in, she has to decide what—and whom—she’ll sacrifice to save her son.

 

My Thoughts:

 

“Convenient Lies” was a surprise “Blind Date With a Book” adventure, and a fantastic adventure it was! This was my first book to read by this author, but I don’t think it will be my last – I really enjoyed it.  The suspense was well done, and the whole plot had me intrigued. I really liked all of the characters, and felt like they were all well constructed with realistic stories and actions. Even Julian who was the ‘bad guy’ was a character I felt for. So that was impressive! The story moved at a decent pace, and unfolded well. I really liked the whole thing. It is a clean read more than a Christian read, though there are subtle hints at faith towards the end mostly. Nothing major or anything, but it wasn’t completely without mention of God. But there was also an instance where God’s name was taken in vain, which I didn’t care for.That aside, it was an engaging story, and I think suspense lovers will especially enjoy it!Thanks for the copy to the author and JustRead Tours!

Join the hunt for the truth–and a traitor–in this tension-laden story of secrets, betrayal, and second chances.
 

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

Once again, author Lisa Harris captures her audience with a riveting and meaningful suspense novel! It starts out with a bang and keeps on moving till the very end, without being too overwhelming which I appreciated. It was exciting, and the plot draws you in just waiting to see how it will all turn out. And the faith message was very well done. I loved the importance put upon forgiveness at the end, and how it impacted the characters.The characters were all very well developed, and I had no problem relating to them. The plot all wrapped up nicely at the end, though I am curious as to what happened to Rachel…that wasn’t entirely laid out but I’m guessing I can make my own conclusions based on what did happen. All in all, an enjoyable novel!

“Echoes Among the Stones” by Jaime Jo Wright ~ Book Review

 

Echoes Among the Stones

 

“Echoes Among the Stones” by Jaime Jo Wright

Review copy from the publishers

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

About the Book:

After Aggie Dunkirk’s career is unceremoniously ended by her own mistakes, she finds herself traveling to Wisconsin, where her grandmother, Mumsie, lives alone in her vintage, though very outdated, home. Aggie didn’t plan for how eccentric Mumsie has become, obsessing over an old, unsolved crime scene–even going so far as to re-create it in a dollhouse.
Mystery seems to follow Aggie when she finds work as a secretary helping to restore the flooded historical part of the town’s cemetery. Forced to work with a puzzling yet attractive archaeologist, she exhumes the past’s secrets and unwittingly uncovers a crime that some will go to any length to keep hidden–even if that means silencing Aggie.
In 1946, Imogene Grayson works in a beauty salon but has her sights set on Hollywood. But coming home to discover her younger sister’s body in the attic changes everything. Unfamiliar with the burgeoning world of forensic science and, as a woman, not particularly welcomed into the investigation, Imogene is nonetheless determined to stay involved. As her sister’s case grows cold, Imogene vows to find justice . . . no matter the cost.

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

Another gripping Wright book to add to the shelves! Carrying a more bittersweet, sorrowful tone to it than the other books by this author, “Echoes Among the Stones” tells the stories of two main characters who have both suffered deep grief and suffering. I really liked how the two characters were so closely related, grandmother and granddaughter. Through both past and present timeline stories, we see how specific griefs and traumas have affected and shaped both heroines. I felt for both Aggie (present day) and Imogene (past timeline), and enjoyed getting to know them through their stories. I loved present-day hero, Collin. He was charming, and so sweet. His gentle reminders to Aggie of God’s presence in our lives was touching, and his willingness to remain beside her through her story was heartwarming.I felt like there was a lot of struggles with God portrayed (understandably, which you will understand upon reading), but there wasn’t a great healing resolution. Which I also understand takes time, and it was hinted at finally healing at the very end, but I would have liked to see them wrestle a bit more with finding God’s peace instead of just finding the resolution to the murder.
On conclusion, I enjoyed another well-written Wright novel, and look forward to more. :)

“Deadly Intentions” by Lisa Harris ~ Book Review

“Deadly Intentions” by Lisa Harris

Romantic Suspense

Review copy through the publishers

My rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

About the Book:

Research scientist Caitlyn Lindsey is convinced that someone is taking out her team one by one. First, a friend and research partner was killed in a home invasion. Three months ago, her boss died in a suspicious car accident. Four days ago, another partner supposedly committed suicide. And now Caitlyn herself has miraculously survived a hit-and-run. Afraid for her life with nowhere to turn, she reaches out to one of the victim’s husbands, Detective Josh Solomon.
Though initially skeptical about Caitlyn’s theory, Josh soon realizes that the attack that took his wife’s life was anything but random. Now the two of them must discover the truth about who is after Caitlyn’s team–and what their end game is–before it’s too late.
In this nail-biting thriller, award-winning author Lisa Harris will have you believing that there’s no such thing as random.

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

Lisa Harris writes some suspensful suspense! Her Nikki Boyd series is by far my favorite of her books, but “Deadly Intentions” would be a close second. The plot moved swiftly and smoothly, keeping me on the edge of my seat. I had to know what was going to happen! I read the first half in one sitting, and wished I could’ve done the same with the last half. :)
It was pretty much non-stop action – and so much danger! A thick plot of deceit and not knowing who to trust…with well formed characters who carried out the story with ease.
The overall plot was my favorite aspect of the book. I liked the characters and their romance story well enough, but the suspense was definitely my favorite part!
The faith message was present but not very strong – I would have liked it to have been a bit more evident, but it wrapped up nicely.
If you’re a fan of exciting, dangerous, and captivating suspense you’ll want to pick this book up. :)

“Lethal Target” by Janice Cantor ~ Review

Lethal Target (Line of Duty #2)

“Lethal Target” by Janice Cantor

Book #2 in the Line of Duty Series

Review copy through Tyndale publishers review program

My rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

 

 

About the Book:

Police Chief Tess O’Rourke thought she’d taken care of her small town’s drug problem last year. But now Rogue’s Hollow residents are up in arms over a contentious vote on legalizing the sale of marijuana within city limits. And when an eighteen-year-old is found dead of a possible overdose, Tess wonders if the local pot farms might be involved and begins to fear that a new, deadlier drug supply chain has cropped up. As tempers flare and emotions boil over, Tess faces the possibility of losing the town’s support.

With her relationship to Sergeant Steve Logan on shaky ground, Tess could really use a friend, and she feels drawn to Pastor Oliver Macpherson’s quiet presence. But the anger she holds over her father’s death prevents her from embracing his faith and finding peace.

Battling storms within and without, Tess is shocked when a familiar face from her past shows up in town to stir up more trouble. And his threats against Tess may prove lethal.

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

The suspense returns in this second book in the Line of Duty series. Main character, Tess, is faced with more than one troubling case; including one that just might get her in major trouble.
It was nice to be able to continue with this book after finishing the first in the series. This book takes place several months after “Crisis Shot”, and can be read as a stand-alone. As with most books, you will get a better feel for the characters, setting, and story by reading these in order, but it’s not absolutely necessary. There’s a new investigation, and the story threads that are continued in book two are understandable on their own.
It was a good book, one which I enjoyed. The suspense was well drawn out and you were very intrigued to find out how the book would finish.
I was a little surprised by the romance thread – it took a turn away from what the first book alluded from, and while I suspected it from the beginning of “Lethal Target”, I can’t say it was my favorite choice. I didn’t feel like these particular two characters meshed as well. But that is just my opinion.
The faith strand was continued nicely, and in this book we get to see Tess soften to God and begin to move forward in her healing, so that was good.
I liked seeing familiar characters from the first book, like Tilly. I hope we will get to see a little bit more of her in the third book too!
The mystery kept us guessing, and it was a relief to see it all turn out well in the end.

Mini Review for the first book in the series, “Crisis Shot”:
Crisis Shot (Line of Duty #1)
Really enjoyed this book – Janice Cantor writes very good police fiction. I felt attached to main character Tess, and her cause from the first page, and enjoyed seeing her journey. The mystery/suspense was well-played out, and had a good climax.
The faith strand was present, woven in gently. I look forward to seeing it continue in the next book.
Romance was very light – sometimes alluded to, but not the main focal point of the book. It worked well for this story, and as with the faith strand, I also look forward to seeing how it all develops.
Well written and engaging. I so appreciate what police do, and this book championed them in a great way.

Author Interview! Jaime Jo Wright

 

Copy of Connilyn Cossette AI.png

 

Good Monday morning readers! I took a bit of a schedule-break in July, but I’m back now with today’s author interview, and next week’s character introduction! Good to be back, right? ^.^ I hope you enjoy this interview – I know I do. The genre of books that Jaime Jo Wright writes (teehee) is usually one out of my normal, but I’ve greatly enjoyed her two books and eagerly await more!

Welcome to my “Peculiar” Blog! I’m so happy to have you here :) Would you please introduce yourself and the genre that you write:

Thank you so much for having me! I am Jaime Jo Wright, perhaps known more for my indulgence in coffee and my handle “The Professional Coffee Drinker” rather than my books. LOL But I write dual-time or split-time mystery. Basically, it means half the book is set in a contemporary setting while the other half takes the reader back into a historical setting, with the mystery weaving in and out of both time periods.

gerbera-1250287

In your Dual-Time stories, do you find one easier to write than the other – past or present?

It sort of depends on the story. In “The House on Foster Hill” my first novel, the historical setting was easier, but in “The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond”, I found myself gravitating more toward the contemporary setting as the one that came smoother.

Of your characters, is there one that you relate to more than the others? And if so, why?

Hmmm, well honestly there’s some of me in every character. I don’t know that I’ve written one character I super relate to, although I will say I think a lot like Kaine from “The House on Foster Hill”. Sort of impulsive, act first, think later, type of thing. 😊

books-2241631_1920.jpg

Do you have a special process for how you choose your character’s names?

None whatsoever. LOL! Sometimes the name just pops into my head and it sticks. Other times, I just look around and like was the case in “The House on Foster Hill”, I see my cat and go, “oh. Ivy. That’s a solid name for a human too.”

I have heard that many authors have their own interesting writing quirk – do you have one? If so, would you mind sharing?

I’ve heard this too. If I have one, I’ve not discovered it yet. Unless you count composing the chapters in my head before I write them down. But I don’t know if that’s so much quirky as just an attempt at efficiency. LOL

pencil-1497126_1920

Does writing energize or exhaust you?

Neither? It’s part of who I am. Some days I’m exhausted so I just don’t write. Other days, I’m excited to write and then words come out energetically. I don’t usually feel too broad of an emotional swing with writing so much. More just: contentment.

If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?

Continue to enjoy every moment to its fullest. Don’t look too far ahead and don’t live in what’s already happened. Make every minute a memory.

What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?

I’ve been blessed with a fairly broad group of writerly friends. The closest ones, I refer to as my “sisters”. They help me become a better writer by challenging me as a person, by supporting me, praying for me, and just overall, being there. I think relationships that are deep and go beyond just the writing world, definitely become ones that help form you as a writer and as a person.

cross-2209803_1920

How important to you is the faith-element in your writing? Is it central to the theme or more of a sideline plot?

The faith-element for me is very important. I usually have a one-word theme to my novels and the characters all circle around it in their stories. It’s also important to me that the faith-elements be relatable and non-preachy. Something that anyone could pick up and be encouraged or challenged by without feeling like they got slapped in the face with evangelism. If that makes sense?

 

 

What does your family think of your writing?

My kids are very proud. They firmly believe I’m famous—think Bon Jovi level of famous. When I reassure them I’ve not yet achieved the rabid fan-base they believe I have, I am quickly corrected. LOL! My husband is also proud, and he’s super supportive. All in all, the family is my fuel.

 

 

And lastly, would you recommend a book that my readers might like if they’ve read your latest, “The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond”?

 

Great question!! If you enjoy the mystery elements, I’d strongly encourage checking out Rachel McMillan for her historically based mysteries. Super good with a unique voice and an edge that I really enjoy!

Great answers to each question! I loved reading through them. I hope you’ve enjoyed this too, readers! And here’s some more info about Jaime Jo Wright’s latest book:

image002.jpg

About The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond:

For over a century, the town of Gossamer Grove has thrived on its charm and Midwestern values, but Annalise Forsythe knows painful secrets, including her own, hover just beneath the pleasant facade. When a man is found dead in his run-down trailer home, Annalise inherits the trailer, along with the pictures, vintage obituaries, and old revival posters covering its walls. As she sorts through the collection, she’s wholly unprepared for the ramifications of the dark and deadly secrets she’ll uncover.

A century earlier, Gossamer Grove has been stirred into chaos by the arrival of controversial and charismatic twin revivalists. The chaos takes a murderous turn when Libby Sheffield, working at her father’s newspaper, receives an obituary for a reputable church deacon hours before his death. As she works with the deacon’s son to unravel the mystery behind the crime, it becomes undeniably clear that a reckoning has come to town—but it isn’t until another obituary arrives that they realize the true depths of the danger they’ve waded into.

Two women, separated by a hundred years, must uncover the secrets within the borders of their own town before it’s too late and they lose their future—or their very souls.

“The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond” by Jaime Jo Wright

Review copy from the publisher/author as part of launch team.

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

About the book:

For over a century, the town of Gossamer Grove has thrived on its charm and midwestern values, but Annalise Forsythe knows painful secrets, including her own, hover just beneath the pleasant faade. When a man is found dead in his run-down trailer home, Annalise inherits the trailer, along with the pictures, vintage obituaries, and old revival posters covering its walls.

Two women, separated by a hundred years, must uncover the secrets within the borders of their own town before it’s too late and they lose their future–or their very souls.

 

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

 

Gossamer Grove is a town of lots of secrets – past and present. Goodness! I knew that by picking up this book I would be in for a suspenseful ride, and I was right! From reading the author’s debut novel, “The House on Foster Hill”, I expected this to be a bit on the creepy side (like a not-read-at-night sort of novel!), but TRAGP actually wasn’t quite as creepy as the first. ;) Oh there were a couple of moments that had your eyes huge, wondering how it was going to end. And the suspense and mystery are so present! And so well done. All the secrets were woven through the story at a perfect pace, revealing themselves slowly and at the perfect time. Very impressive. :)
I don’t usually care for duel-time line stories, but I make an exception for Jaime Jo Wright’s novels – I am always so captivated, and always love both past and present stories pretty equally, which is a feat in itself! Switching back and forth can be a bit hard for my brain to adjust, but these stories…well, golly! I have to keep reading. ^.^
In 1907 and present day, our heroines Libby and Annalise both strive to uncover the mysteries that surround their lives. It’s very gripping, and the characters are so realistic, it’s almost hard to remember that I’m reading a fiction novel. :)
Also woven through this book is the very important message of grace and forgiveness. I like that it was also presented with the message of the importance of repentance too.
I very much enjoyed this one, and am so looking forward to the next book by Jaime Jo Wright!
Quotes:
“No amount of mystery in one’s soul can escape the ever-watchful eye of God. One may carry guilt and shame with them for years, only to discover that while they attempted to doge God’s judgement, they instead cheated themselves of His forgiveness.”  
“There is a balance to be struck between justice and grace. I say justice rather than judgement, although sometimes one comes hand in hand with the other. We cannot cheapen God’s righteousness by familiarizing Him to such a degree that His grace becomes a ticket to wanton freedom. Yet we cannot discount His forgiveness under the assumption He creates only to destroy.” 
“The consequence of sin is death, but the grace of God brings us life. One must fear God for what He can do, while loving Him for what He doesn’t do. A contrite heart results in the withholding discipline in exchange for mercy – and love.”

Revell Review: “Pursued” by Lisa Harris

 

“Pursued” by Lisa Harris

Book Three in the Nikki Boyd Files 

Revell Reads Review Copy

My rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars (leaning very close to a full five!)

 

About the Book:

 

Nikki Boyd’s flight into Nashville was routine–up until the crash landing at the airport. When the dust settles, Nikki discovers that the woman who had been seated next to her on the plane is missing–and no one will admit she was ever there. Erika Hamilton had been flying to Nashville with an air marshal as a key witness in an upcoming grand jury trial. When she flees from the crash, is she running from trouble or straight into it? Before Nikki can even see her family, she and her team are pulled into a missing persons case where the motives are as unclear as the suspects.

My Thoughts:

 

This is the third book in the Nikki Boyd Files series, and certainly as exciting as the first two! When I selected this book for review, I knew I wanted to reread the first book (Vendetta) and read the second book (Missing) so I would be ‘up-to-date’, and I’m glad I did, because it was great to read the story and follow each up with the next one. Now, though, I have to wait for more again! Ah the pain of series. ;)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and found it riveting. It was fast-paced, and well-written. I loved following the characters again and seeing each one grow more. And I’m impressed that the author can write three consecutive books with each being from the POV of the main character, Nikki, and none are at all boring or tedious! Usually when a series follows the same point-of-few, it can feel “stagnant” or as if you’ve heard it all before, but not so with the Nikki Boyd Files, which I really appreciate. :)
There was one thread of the story that I thought would be more intrical throughout the series by the topic from the first book, but it wasn’t the main plot-line, though I think it was better included in this third book than the second. And I want to read more! This bit may seem confusing, but when you read the books you’ll understand. I just don’t want to give anything away. :)
“Vendetta” is my favourite of the series so far, but “Pursued” is actually a close second. I just really enjoyed the whole plot, and it got me wanting to read more.
Very great suspense series!

Revell Book Review: “Thin Ice” by Irene Hannon

{Cover via amazon – click to go to books page.}

Thin Ice by Irene Hannon

Book Two in Men of Valor series

Suspense-romance fiction

Review copy source: Revell Reads

My rating: 2 out of 5 Stars

 

About the Book:

After losing her parents in a car accident and her sister to a house fire, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Life is finally starting to feel normal again when an envelope arrives in the mail–addressed in her sister’s handwriting. And the note inside claims she is still alive.

FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator, is assigned to reopen the case, but he’s coming up with more questions than answers. If Ginny Reed is still alive–who is the woman buried in her grave? Where is Ginny? And is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game–or the target of a sinister plot? As he digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: whoever is behind the bizarre ruse has a deadly agenda.

 

My Thoughts:

Suspense fiction isn’t a regular in my literary diet, but it is a nice change once in a while. It’s quite an interesting genre and I do enjoy it occasionally.
The suspense part of this book was done really well and kept me very interested. It was quite the case! I definitely appreciate that part of the book.
However, what gives this book a low rating for me was the romance mainly, and also the lack of faith.
The romance was inappropriate at many places, in my opinion. There were unnecessary comments, and definitions of ‘beauty’ that was out-of-line. Obviously everyone’s definition of beauty is different – and that’s what I appreciate and I just wish that was shown more often in books. But so often books describe ONE type as beautiful and so anyone that does not fit in that ‘model’ category is basically being told that they are not what is considered “beautiful”. That should not be happening in Christian fiction. Especially when beauty comes from God, not even from our physical look.
So yes, I was really disappointed in the romance and cannot recommend it for that reason. They never came right out and said the obvious but it was heavily implied and did not show reverence to purity or waiting.
There was brief mention of God – it was tried for at least. I think it was more of an underlying thought or a subplot than the main theme.
Also, I was saddened by how calloused the book approached a situation of human-trafficking as if there was nothing one could do about it or wanted to do about it. They were the FBI…the man should care.
As I said, the suspense factor was intriguing. I enjoyed that aspect, but the rest caused me not to love this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for my honest review which I have given.
