My first introduction to Sarah Morgan and her books was “Sleigh Bells In The Snow”, book one in her “O’Neil Brother” Series. I instantly fell in love with Snow Crystal Resort, Vermont, Gramps and Grams and Elizabeth and of course Jackson and Kayla.

Her second book “Suddenly Last Summer” brings Jackson’s twin, Sean O’Neil from Boston to his roots and heritage in Vermont and to one fiery French chef Elise Philippe. Dedicated and renowned orthopedic surgeon, Sean O’Neil is pulled back to his home when his Gramps suffers a stroke and comes face to face with pain and hurt that drove him away from his family. He and his grandfather have been at loggers end for a couple of years now and stubborn as they are, just refuse to defuse the situation.

ImageIf that is not enough to make him feel unwanted, he has to deal with his one summer night erotic fling Elise! Simmering heat on both ends, Sean and Elise try to ignore their feelings for each other and end up getting into each other. Sleepless nights of lust and passion, hot days of denials and insecurities, “Suddenly Last Summer” is an emotional roller coaster of a ride for all involved, even as a lot of questions find their answers.

I couldn’t help falling in love with Sean and Elise. Sarah Morgan has done a brilliant job of modeling two characters, worlds apart yet so perfect for each other. Elise is a firecracker, who helps Sean understand his pain, value of a family and helps put a closer to his suffering and guilt. Sean is the lovable doctor, tender and patient as he stands in support of Elise as she tries to come to terms with her painful past and loss.

Sarah did a fantastic job of penning so much emotion and love in her story, that it catches you unawares. There were incidents in the book that had me feeling sad and lonely, loved and cherished, hot and erotic, unconditional support and trust, and the O’Neil family, always comes together to protect their own, no matter what. It is a lesson in learning what families mean, and that it’s just not blood that ties, but relationships can be made from the heart.

The O’Neil’s leave me with a warm and fuzzy feeling and Snow Crystal Resort, a haven of family, love and protection.

I devour books and make that a romantic thriller and I’m a goner! Anyone who grew up on Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys, love Nora Roberts, Karen Rose and Stephen King just to name a few, you will fall in love with Kendra Elliot’s books.

When an eleven year old is abducted on her way to school, the FBI doesn’t waste a moment, sending agents to scour the area and embedding Special Agent Eva McLane with the distraught family. In the eye of the storm is local detective Mason Callahan, whose life is crumbling to pieces – he’s related to the victim and his lifelong confidential informant has been murdered.

Both he and Agent McLane hole up in the victim’s family home. Every second counts in a kidnapping case, and the stakes keep rising the longer the girl is missing. As Ava and Mason struggle to hold the family in their darkest hour, the two investigators find themselves drawn to each other.

Her new book “Vanished” is going to hit the stands on June 17, 2014. Sink your teeth into a sneak peak of the first chapter of her forthcoming book – VANISHED

Mason Callahan hadn’t seen Josie in three months. The leanness of her face and the indentations above her collarbones told him she’d lost weight. In a bad way. Time hadn’t been kind to her, and the scabbed sores on her cheeks hinted that meth was probably the new love of her life. There’d been a time when he’d fought a bit of an attraction to the woman. She’d been sweet and eager to please, a pretty woman in a wholesome-country-song sort of way. She and Mason shared a rural background and a similar taste in music that’d made her more enjoyable than his other confidential informants.

But now she’d never work with him again. His fingers tightened on the brim of the cowboy hat in his hand, and he swallowed hard at the sight of her contorted body on the floor of the bathroom in her cramped apartment. Anger abruptly blurred his vision. Someone had taken a baseball bat to her skull. The murder weapon was dumped in the shower, blood and hair sticking to the bat.

“Holy mother of God,” muttered his partner, Ray Lusco……
