Rebecca Zanetti’s “Blood Brothers” series started off with “Deadly Silence”, and continues with the “Lethal Lies” that haunt the Blood Brothers. A spin off of the Sin Brothers Series, these blood brothers are trying to eliminate the evil that turned them into experimental soldiers for pure evil intentions. Hiding behind the “Lost Bastards Investigative Agency” as private investigators, Ryker, Heath and Denver are trying to create a normal life for themselves.

LethalLies-Pic#2-May2017

All Anya Best wants is revenge for her sister murdered by the infamous Copper Killer. Profiling and helping the FBI to catch the killer stalking her, she would do anything to bring justice to the innocent murdered, even if she has to fake an engagement to Heath Jones, one of the blood brothers, sexy, brooding and deadly.

Heath Jones wants the same thing that Anya wants, to bring the killer to justice and try to escape the crazy people hell bent on capturing them all and continue enhanced experiments. Falling for Anya was not on the cards; it only brings danger and death to their door. But passion and love have a way of creeping in amidst the chaos and death created by evil.

And the revelation of the Copper Killer is one lethal and deadly surprise!

“Lethal Lies” is the second in the ongoing saga of the brothers created by Rebecca Zanetti, and prowess at creating amazing stories of suspense, adrenaline and nail biting twists. ,

A new series from Melinda Leigh brings on another dose of adrenaline rush and suspense, as she introduces the readers to Morgan Dane and Lance Kruger, their thirst for justice that reunites them and an attraction that flares into passion and the evolving of their relationship.

SayYouAreSorry-MorganDane#1-MelindaLeigh

Book one in the Morgan Dane series, “Say You’re Sorry”, plunges Morgan Dane into an investigation of her one time baby sitter, Tessa. Coming to Scarlet Falls with her three daughters to start fresh after her husband’s death, was on her agenda. Getting back into her role of a prosecutor was her next step, but circumstances take her to the other side of law, as she sacrifices her career to defend an innocent.

Teaming up with Lance Kruger, an ex-cop and now a private investigator, the hunt for the murderer reveals secrets and betrayals that led to the death of an innocent young girl. As the secrets fall open, so does the relationship between Lance and Morgan, giving them a second chance to see if they can have a future.

What I love about Melinda Leigh is her prowess at peeling layer after layer of revelations, keeping that suspense going, making “Say You’re Sorry” a very interesting read, as she gives immense attention to details of the investigation as well as developing the relationship between Lance and Morgan. Placing secondary characters at the right place in the plot, making them an important part of the story adds strength and character.

A brilliant start to what seems to be a brilliant series!

Kaylea Cross needs no introduction and neither do her stories of war torn heroes, their trials and tribulations and their happily ever after.

FastKill-DEAFast#2-KayleaCross-May2017

Her latest DEA Fast Series takes the readers into another team of military heroes as they battle the evil and finds love along the way. Second in the series, “Fast Kill” brings DEA special agent Taylor Kennedy and FAST Bravo agent Logan Granger together again as they battle Kennedy’s past that seems to threaten their future.

Kennedy’s shitty and violent childhood motivates her to go on a path to serve justice and that same past seems to bring danger to her door as her protector and savior from foster years ends up on the wrong side of the law. With a target on her head, from a deadly cartel, Kennedy gets under the protection of Logan and together they have to end the nightmare of violence, drugs and death.

Another fast paced read from Kaylea Cross, just enough passion and adrenaline to pleasure the readers.

I’ll most likely be so sad to see this “Most Likely” series end so soon. Stories of three friends, their pasts and presents, their hopes and dreams, all so beautifully penned by Catherine Bybee.

The final book, “Making It Right”, gives the rebel of Rive Bend, OR, her very own happy ending as she finally puts a closure to the mystery surrounding her father’s death. Inheriting her father’s legacy as the Sheriff of River Bend, Jo Anne Ward is desperate for some action, as the tiny town makes her job too easy. Signing up for expert law enforcement training is a turning point of her life, bringing special FBI agent Gill Clausen into her life.

MakingItRight-MostLikely#3

As they work together at the training seminar, they also work together in quenching the lustful thirst of desire that sparks between them. To Jo’s restless heart, Gill is her anecdote of patience. As things turn dangerous in River Bend, Gill is the shield of protection that helps in bringing home the truth of Jo’s father’s death and secrets buried long ago.

A brilliant end to the series as she finally gives Jo her dream of moving out of River Bend, yet close enough to visit her friends. A protective and calm federal agent who gives her new lease of live, beyond River Bend and a dream job with a future together, “Making It Right” for Jo and her friends.

It’s a beautifully narrated story, charming with witty dialogues, the essence of friendship and care so eloquently shown, the passion and love sublime and the whole story just gives off warmth that fills a heart with pleasure and happiness.

As Bybee says, “Sometimes, friends are all the family we need.”

Catherine Bybee is one of the most beautiful and entertaining writers I’ve had the pleasure of reading and re-visiting several times and this is one series you definitely don’t want to miss reading.

If you haven’t read Jennifer Jaynes, you are missing reading one of the most fascinating writers of suspense. Her plots are multi layered, keeping the readers on the edge of the seats as she takes the story though a multitude of ups and downs.

TheStrangerInside-JenniferJaynes

Her latest suspense, “The Stranger Inside” is one of her best-written mysteries, questioning our ability of really knowing a person no matter how close, the decisions and choices made in debilitating situations, and the very core of human psyche.

Mystery writer Diane Christie and her son relocate to a small coastal town to start fresh, leaving behind a painful past and also hoping to bring her family together and mend her broken relationship with her college going daughter. Quite as the town maybe, but a series of college student’s murders rock the town and the killer is fixated on Diane.

With every page filled with emotion, keeping the plot tight with suspense, Jennifer Jaynes does a brilliant job of taking the readers to the very core of “The Stranger Inside.” Without giving away the suspense, all I can say is I definitely did not see the ending coming and it left me with so many questions of the choices and decisions we make in our lives. Characters have been created with the utmost detail to perfection and the sublime and unconditional love adds another perfect dimension to the story.
