I like Susan Kearney and her books. I’ve read a few of hers previously and she does a good job of giving her readers a strong plot and narration. Her new release “Secrets Of Moore House” is an appealing read.

A fire destroys Jasmine Ross’s home and her everything is turned into ashes. A mysterious letter dated 25 years ago, rekindles her desire to search for her missing mother, a search that takes into the Moore household, a family that was supposedly related to her and the head of the family Talbot Moore, being her father. But Talbot has been a victim of a fire himself and his body has been put to rest three months ago. As she steps into that household to find the truth, all she sees is resentment, anger and motive for anyone to be the perpetrator.

SecretsOfMooreHouse-SusanKearney-Oct2014

Rand Sinclair is Talbot Moore’s partner and he is the only who gives a marginal scope for Jasmine to stay in the house and get to the bottom of the threat. The enigmatic and handsome Rand has his own agenda of wanting to help Jasmine as he is falling for her innocence and courage. As accidental incidents push Jasmine to the boundaries of questioning her sanity, he is the only one who believes in her story and her quest for finding the truth of what had happened 25 years ago.

The plot is a little tepid, but the narration and evolution was interesting. It does keep you wanting to get to the bottom of the mystery, and the ending was a surprise as well. Although I did feel that the romance between Jasmine and Rand (as a sub plot), would have been developed a little bit more, rather than make abrupt confessions. I also would have liked a little bit more depth into the secondary characters to make it more intriguing and keep the guessing game going on.

All in all, it is a good enjoyable one time read.

I’ve had a couple of Susan Kearney’s books in my library for a while now, but ended up reading her Born Trilogy. The book covers were so captivating and endearing. Been her books a first for me, was not sure what to expect even though the synopsis of the books was intriguing.

BornInSecret-Braddack1-Aug2014Born In Secret is the first of the trilogy of the Braddack brothers and introduces Max Braddack, a genius inventor and Brooke, a mom on the hunt for the secret behind her daughter Skye’s birth. Brooke lands on Max’s doorstep in with the shocking news that a Braddack is the biological father of Skye.

Born In Secrets is a thrilling ride of hidden secrets, suspense and danger lurking in the shadows of a fertility clinic. As much as the story was interesting, somehow I felt that Max and Brooke were rushed into love. There was not that much of a character development versus giving the premise of the story more importance.

BornInDanger-Braddack2-Aug2014

The second in the trilogy is Born In Danger, with Ford Braddack getting kidnapped by the sassy Devlin Ward, who happens to be the cousin of Ford’s dead wife Rhonda. Ford, Rhonda and Devlin are mentioned in the first book, Born In Secret.

Ford’s been trying to find the killer of his wife for a few months now, and Devlin is a private investigator hired in secrecy to find the killer too. She kidnaps Ford to get his help as her leads travel continents, and she needs Ford’s help and contacts to pursue.

Now this story is better paced and I enjoyed this far more than the first one. The character development of Ford and Devlin was etched well and they catch your attention. They had time to spend time together, get to know each other, as they are forced into dangerous situations and try to protect each other from getting killed.

This is a definite read that will be enjoyed for sure. I really like this book a lot as it keeps you guessing, taking you into another ride of suspense, thrill and betrayal.

BornInMystery-Braddack3-Aug 2014The last book in the trilogy, Born In Mystery brings us up close and personal with Craig Braddack and Summer Warren, carrying Craig’s babies in her womb as a surrogate mother. Summer ends up with Craig as she is trying to leave a dangerous past behind her and get Craig’s protection for her babies.

This is by far the best of the trilogy and so loved Craig and Summer. Their chemistry was good, their banter was filled with wit and humor and Craig is one alpha protector as a stalker makes his appearance from Summer’s past. Now Craig and Summer have to make sure they counter every dangerous step the stalker places in their path, and survive the horrors of a mad man.

Another enjoyable read of suspense, sizzling chemistry and a race against time to keep them alive.
