After the Evil Review

After the Evil: A Jake Roberts Novel

By Cary Allen Stone

After the Evil: A Jake Roberts Novel by [Stone, Cary Allen]
Tormented detective Jake Roberts just killed a suspect in a firefight. Behind the ski mask was a sixteen-year-old girl. Cop-shop policy requires a visit to the precinct shrink after a shooting. Leaving the session in anger, Jake passes a beautiful woman entering the doctor’s office. Later that night, Dr. Thaddeus Abrams is found murdered. The kill is the work of a prolific serial killer and FBI profiler Mika Scott is obsessed with capturing the killer. She arrives to lead the investigation at the Atlanta PD where she was once Detective Jake Roberts’ partner and lover. Jake is sent to question the doctor’s clients and he comes face-to-face with the beautiful woman he passed in the office earlier, a flight attendant named Lori Powers. Jake and Lori fall into a steamy love affair. Working with Mika, tensions are running high when Jake discovers who the killer is and the once cold trail is on fire. Will they get there in time to stop another murder? The killer is within a fingertips reach.


In the line of duty, Jake Roberts had killed a young girl who was aiming to kill him. Even though it was a clean shot, it still haunted him. Jake starts seeing the police psychologist, Dr. Thaddeus Abrams. When Dr. Abrams is murdered by a serial killer, Jake realizes that he has to leave his problems behind and give his full attention to finding the killer. But when the killer strikes even closer to home, Jake realizes that the killer has been right under his nose all along.

This was a gripping thriller with a cast of endearing characters. I liked the camaraderie between Jake, Harmon, and Mika. Although I enjoy reading the forensics aspect of detective novels, I became bored with the scientific bantering that was included, but that’s just me. I can see that this Jake Roberts series is going to be a good one, and I can’t wait to start the next book.

The Vampire's Mail Order Bride Review

The Vampire's Mail Order Bride (Nocturne Falls Book 1) 

By Kristen Painter

The Vampire's Mail Order Bride (Nocturne Falls Book 1) by [Painter, Kristen]
The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. 

Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs, fur, and all.

After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. She finds her groom-to-be living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day. Weird. But not as weird as what she doesn’t know. Her groom-to-be is a 400-year-old vampire.

Hugh Ellingham has only agreed to the arranged set up to make his overbearing grandmother happy. In thirty days, whatever bridezilla shows up at his door will be escorted right back out. His past means love is no longer an option. Not if the woman’s going to have a future. Except he never counted on Delaney and falling in love for real.

Too bad both of them are keeping some mighty big secrets...

*For the Official Nocturne Falls Reading List:*


When Delaney witnesses her boss murdering someone, she goes on the run. In her panic, she happens upon a chance to hide out in Nocturne Falls, South Carolina. The only problem with that though is that she is engaged to marry a man she has never met. Being desperate, she has no choice. What she doesn’t know is that her fiancé is a 300 years old vampire, and the town has a reason for celebrating Halloween every day of the year.

It was refreshing to read a vampire tale that was not gory, or even scary. It was truly a fun and amusing story with great character development. I can see this is going to be an interesting series with all the different supernatural characters.

Sweet Heat at Bayside Tour and Giveaway

NEW RELEASE........ 

Fall in love at Bayside, where sandy beaches, good friends, and true love come together in the sweet small towns of Cape Cod. Bayside Summers is a series of standalone romance novels featuring fiercely loyal heroes and sassy, empowered women. They're fun, flirty, flawed, and easy to relate to.

In Sweet Heat at Bayside…
Drake Savage has always done the right thing, especially where beautiful and fiercely determined Serena Mallery is concerned—even when it means keeping his feelings for her to himself. Serena has always wanted more than what their small town of Wellfleet, Massachusetts has to offer, and Drake’s roots are so deeply entrenched in the Cape, it’s all he can do to watch her pack up her life and move away.

Serena has always had big dreams. As a teenager she dreamed of becoming an interior designer and marrying smart, musically inclined, sexy-as-sin Drake Savage. Now she’s finally landed a killer job with a top interior design firm, but though she has spent the last four years working side by side with Drake, he’s never made a move. Four years is long enough for her to accept reality, and her new job in Boston is the perfect way to move on.

A weak moment leads to sizzling, sensual kisses, opening a door through which they’ve both been aching to walk. But Serena’s determined not to give up her shot at the career she’s always dreamed of, and Drake has loved her for too many years to stand in her way. With true love at their fingertips and a world of unstoppable passion igniting between them, can the two star-crossed lovers find their way to their happily ever after?

What Matters Most Review

What Matters Most

By Helen Bea Kirk

What Matters Most by [Kirk, Helen Bea]
Meagan Morris has lost everything. Her family is dead, and all that remains of them, all that was endowed to her, has been stolen. Desperate to retrieve her legacy, she attempts to rob King of her grandmother’s pearls at gunpoint. Set among the cattle ranches of America’s Southeast, What Matters Most delivers steady suspense and savory romance as Meagan and King’s worlds collide!


Meagan lost her parents in a plane crash and her husband died in Afghanistan. The only family she has left is her cousin Agnes and Agnes’ son Andrew. She treasures the heirlooms she owns from all her deceased relatives, since that is all she owns. After she falls on hard times, Meagan has to move in with Agnes. But before that, Meagan’s home is burglarized and she loses all her treasured heirlooms. Meagan is determined to find them and take them back. She starts by canvassing the local pawn shops. And that is when she catches the eye of King Pullman, the pawn shop owner who turns out to be more than she bargained for.

I absolutely loved this story. It grabbed my attention from page one and continued all the way to the end. The tension created between each character builds up and has you turning the pages as fast as you can. But even so, you also want it to slow down and last longer. The character development and plot was well thought out and transitioned smoothly throughout. I don’t usually read books twice, but I would definitely read this one again. It was that good. This author is well worth taking another look at.
