Review of “The Art of Love and Murder” – Brenda Whiteside

April 22, 2014 
 

Lacy Dahl never questioned her past until the deaths of her adoptive parents and her husband. A husband who wasn’t what he seemed. Her research uncovers secrets about the mother she never knew; secrets that dispute the identity of her father and threaten her life.

Sheriff Chance Meadowlark is still haunted by the murder of his wife and the revenge he unleashed in the name of justice. When he meets Lacy he is determined not to become involved, but their pasts may make that impossible. As they move closer to the truth, saving Lacy may be his only salvation.

Lacy begins to think the present is more important than her past…until Chance’s connection to her mother and a murder spin her deeper into danger and further from love. Will the truth destroy Lacy and Chance or will it be the answer that frees them?

 
 
(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique) 
 
I’ve grown accustomed to stories having one, maybe two whackadoodles but Brenda had the crazies popping up every which way we (me and the characters) looked. Three nutcases make for some stimulating reading material which is the point of any great author. A writer does want a reader to remember them, buy more books. 

I can safely say I don’t think I will ever forget Clark, Kitty, or Professor Sheffield. 

One thing did surprise me regarding The Art of Love and Murder.

With so many people causing trouble for Lacy, it’s a wonder she found time for lovin’ but I guess you can’t very well have a damsel in distress without a savior. 

Speaking of her savior, Chance might’ve not come riding to her rescue on a horse but he owns a Harley and that’s way better in my book.

Convinced she was born to be an artist, Brenda never took her love of writing seriously. And then one day, sometime after college, after marrying a man doing a stint in the army, and after the birth of her son, she found more satisfaction filling a blank page with words than an empty canvas with color.

 
Brenda and her husband are gypsies at heart having lived in six states and two countries. Currently, they split their time between the prairie in Northern Arizona and the RV life near Roosevelt Lake. At home or in the RV, she spends most of her time writing stories of discovery and love entangled with suspense.

Review of “The New Cowboy” – Rebecca Winters

Living on her grandfather’s ranch, surrounded by her loving brothers and their families, is helping Avery Bannock put her painful past behind her. But ever since Zane Lawson came home, she’s been fighting her feelings for the rugged former Navy SEAL who’s sworn to keep her safe—in his arms.

After a decade undercover, Zane’s ready to settle in Montana horse country. Buying the ranch next to the Bannock spread was the first step. Now he’s got to convince the gun-shy archaeologist that he’s the only cowboy for her. As they work together to find out who’s stealing tribal artifacts from a nearby reservation, Zane will do everything in his power to win Avery’s trust…and turn their budding romance into a mission possible!

 
 
 

For the most part, I found the flow of the story lacking. I didn’t “connect” to the characters or the plot. I did find how Zane reacted/behaved towards Avery’s PTSD very sweet and endearing. 
 
Furthermore, I did enjoy the Native American stories Avery told Zane. If you like Native American history, then I do think you’ll enjoy this story very much.

Review of “Cowboy Boots for Christmas (Cowboy not Included)” – Carolyn Brown

 
51nvgzpkwyl-_sx302_bo1204203200_
 
‘Tis the season for…
Feasting
Frolicking
And…Feuding?
 
All he wants for Christmas is peace and quiet…
After two tours in Afghanistan, retired Army sniper Finn O’Donnell believes his new ranch outside the sleepy little town of Burnt Boot, Texas, is the perfect place for an undisturbed holiday season. But before he can settle in, an old friend shows up looking for protection and a place where nobody knows her name.
 
But that’s going to take a miracle…
Callie Brewster must relocate to protect her young nephew, Martin, and the only person she trusts is her old Army friend, Finn. Burnt Boot seems like the perfect place to be anonymous, but it turns out a small town with big drama is no place to hide…
 
 
 images-12
 
When Callie arrived on Finn’s doorstep with her nephew/adopted son, Martin, I assumed the story would revolve around their love being born while they awaited the trial in which Martin had to testify in as being the eye witness to a murder. 
 
However, Carolyn didn’t really address the incident until the very end and only then did she spend a couple lines on it. She did give Martin a couple nightmares but those scenes lasted (again) a few lines. 
 
Basically, the plot of the story wasn’t about what united Callie and Finn. The story was about two people who had feelings for each other while in the military, didn’t disclose them, but after reuniting, they fell into a natural rhythm of partnership in life and in love. 
 
During their journey to HEA they dealt with feuding neighboring families, unexpected houseguests and their own lingering doubts if they were meant to be. 
 
Of course, as you can imagine, they were meant to be and together they created a big happy family. 
 
Read the story and discover exactly how big their family became in such a short span of time.

Review of “Hidden Prey” – Cheyenne McCray


HIDDEN PREY
New York Times best selling author Cheyenne McCray returns to steamy romantic suspense with a high-octane thriller about a woman running from a Mexican cartel and the man determined to protect her.

Danger
Tori Cox, a talented and sought after musician, heads back to her roots in a small southwest town in Arizona as she flees an abusive relationship. When she arrives in Bisbee, she finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time—and witnesses the execution of a Federal agent by none other than the son of El Demonio, the head of the Jimenez Cartel. Tori and everyone she loves is now in danger as the cartel comes after her before she can testify.

Desire
Landon Walker, a special agent with the Department of Homeland Security, rescues Tori when he sees the beautiful woman running from members of one of the most ruthless cartels in the world. He sets out to protect her, but soon protecting her isn’t enough. The fire between them makes him want her in a way that he’s never wanted another woman, despite his wounded heart.
 
Death
Diego Montego Jimenez will do everything in his power to kill the young American woman who threatens his business and family. No one lives to testify against the Jimenez Cartel. Landon isn’t about to let the cartel get hold of Tori. He’ll go to the ends of the earth and back to protect her—and show her he’s never letting her go.

 
 
Quick Thoughts
 
Cheyenne is back with a new series and I rather enjoyed it. IMO, it would make a perfect story arc for an episode of Breaking Bad, which I am currently engrossed in. Yeah, I know I’m way behind on the times with this show but I’m watching it now so …… 🙂
 
And now back to the book…..
 
If you like sexy cops, women who aren’t weak, and action, then you will enjoy this book. It is the perfect start to her new series. Can’t wait for book 2.
