Vikki’s Musings

 

Thanks go to the publisher and Net-Galley for the complimentary copy of Forever my Cowboy by June Faver. I voluntarily agreed to read and review this book prior to publication. My opinions are my own, and no one has influenced them.

 

Forever my Cowboy is an emotionally charged romance with engaging characters and a great plot. The pacing is excellent and kept me enmeshed from the first page to the last. Ms. Faver adds an authentic feel of Texas ranching, and that helped pull me into the story. The adorable little ones contributed as well.

 

Jennifer LaChance’s character took a little time to pull me in because she isn’t immediately lovable in the beginning, but Ms. Faver redeems her and had me rooting for her well before the end of the tale. At first, she came across as lacking empathy since she didn’t take into account the hero’s grief. However, her desire to do right by her late brother’s children is admirable and had me warming to her character.

 

Cade Garrett is an interesting hero. At first, he makes a snap judgment regarding Jennifer, but he soon realizes his mistake. I enjoyed his character and quickly wanted him to get the girl, and his adorable niece and nephew. He’s not an alpha male which is what is normally found in this genre, and it was a refreshing change, giving the story a touch of difference.

 

The romance between Jennifer and Cade takes some time to heat up, since the plot places them on opposite sides regarding the children. The couple do have a good bit of chemistry as the story progresses, and I wanted them to find their happy ending.

 

If you enjoy western contemporary romance with characters that will touch your heart and a plot that offers more than just a love story, then you will love Forever my Cowboy. There are several suspenseful scenes that I enjoyed a lot. The whodunit it quality is excellent, and I wasn’t sure who the culprit is until close to the climax. Happy reading!

Vikki’s Musings

 

Thanks go to the publisher and Net-Galley for the complimentary copy of Up the Creek by Alissa Grosso. I voluntarily agreed to read and review this book prior to publication. My opinions are my own, and no one has influenced them.

 

Up the Creek is an exciting mystery with complex characters and a gripping plot. The pacing pulled me in from the first page and kept me enthralled until the last. I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery and trying to discover how it was all connected.

 

Caitlin Walker is the main character in this book, and she is married to Lance. She was plagued by horrific nightmares as a child, and when in college, found a way to silence them. Now her young son is having similar gruesome nightmares. I enjoyed her character a lot and loved her determination to protect her young son. 

 

Lance has several unexplained idiosyncrasies, such as insisting they keep the bedroom locked while they sleep. He never has explained why he needs this to Caitlin. He makes light of their son’s nightmares, but he is actually deeply concerned and takes Adam to a woman who is supposed to be able to end his nightmares. His secrets are eating him alive, but fear keeps him silent. I felt so sorry for his troubled soul as the story plays out and shed a few tears for him, especially at the end.

 

This is a true thriller that kept me reading as fast as possible, so I could find out how or if they could overcome their issues. This book is far from the light-hearted books I normally read, and I loved it. 

 

If you enjoy thrillers with complex relationships, and a plot that pulls you into the story, then you will love Up the Creek as much as I did. Upon finishing the novel I rated it with 4 Gold Crowns, but as I wrote this review, I decided to give it 4.5 Gold Crowns instead and will round it up to Five stars on the sites where I place my review. Happy reading!

Letting down her guard leaves a woman vulnerable to love—and to a menacing stalker—in a pulse-pounding novel by Nancy Herkness, award-winning author of The Hacker.

After fleeing her abusive ex, New Jersey salon owner Natalie Hart is reclaiming her life and self-esteem. Her fragile recovery doesn’t need a player like former FBI agent Tully Gibson, no matter how tempting a fling sounds. Then Natalie starts receiving anonymous notes, each more frightening and threatening than the last. To help track her stalker, Natalie knows whom to call. Their explosive chemistry together is an emotional hazard she’s willing to risk.

A high-powered security expert at KRG Consulting, Tully has intimacy issues of his own. The stirring hum of attraction he feels with his new client comes with boundaries.

The deeper Tully and Natalie are drawn into danger, the closer they become.

It’s time for Natalie and Tully to face their fears—of falling in love and of falling prey to a vengeful killer.

Vikki’s Musings

 

Thanks go to the author, publisher and Net-Galley for the complimentary copy of The Agent by Nancy Herkness. I voluntarily agreed to read and review this novel prior to its release. My opinions are my own and no one influenced them.

 

The Agent is the third book in Ms. Herkness’s series, The Consultants. As with all of Ms. Herkness’s novels, The Agent is a well-written novel with characters that pull you into the story and having you routing for them to succeed. 

 

Natalie Hart is the heroine, and she’s a truly endearing character with many traits I love. She’s a troubled soul with a poor self-image from the emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of her ex-husband. That type of abuse is so hard because there are no physical signs of the damage one suffers from a controlling relationship. It can tear one’s soul apart and take years to recover from the abuse.

 

Tully Gibson is a fantastic hero with his own issues from his past. While his problems are not from an ex, they are no less damaging and has him determined to avoid a deep relationship with anyone. Then he meets Natalie and that changes fast.

 

The romance between Natalie and Tully is combustible from the beginning and burns hot throughout the book. The sexual scenes are well written with plenty of passion and will appeal to many readers. There’s also a strong emotional attraction between them, and I really wanted them to find their happy ending.

 

The suspense in The Agent is amazing! The suspense builds throughout the story and had me sitting on the edge of my seat. There’s a lot of action in The Agent making it a fast-paced reading experience. Ms. Herkness is a master at writing romantic suspense!

 

If you enjoy romantic suspense novels with a hot billionaire, and a plot with plenty of action, then you will love The Agent as much as I did. I’m not sure what Ms. Herkness plans for her next book, but I know I will want to read it. Happy reading!

Book Review with Featured Author: Soothsayer by Kathryn Amurra

Soothsayer by Kathryn Amurra

Genre: Historical Romance


Length: 281 Pages


Rating: 5 Gold Crowns

Aurelia has always valued love and happiness over titles and power. Though her kind-hearted father has allowed her to turn away suitor after suitor in pursuit of a love she cannot yet define, when he dies her choices die with him. Knowing that marrying the elderly governor of a neighboring province can secure her mentally challenged brother's safety, she gives up on her dream of finding love in return for his protection.

Cassius is the ill-fated captain of the governor's guard tasked with escorting the Lady Aurelia and her unpleasant aunt to the governor's estate.

Vikki’s Musings

 

Thanks goes to the author for bring Soothsayer by Kathryn Amurra to my attention. While Ms. Amurra offered me an advance reader copy, butI chose to purchase the book instead since I wasn’t sure it would grab me. My regret is, it took me way too long to move this to the top of my TBR list! 

 

Soothsayer is set 115 CE in what is today, Lyon, France, but then part of the Roman Empire. The pacing pulled me in from the first page and kept me enmeshed until the last. This novel has the traditional romance arch, and Ms. Amurra does a credible job of sprinkling in enough of what it must have been like during this ancient time, but this novel is not historical fiction, instead it’s historical romance and that is the central focus of this book. That in no way took away from my enjoyment.

 

Aurelia’s the heroine of this tale, and her loyalty to her disabled brother gained my desire to read her story. Her willingness to sacrifice herself to protect him touched my heart, and I quickly became fully vested in her character. In no way does she come across as a martyr though. 

 

Cassius is the hero, a captain for the Governor’s guard is tasked with delivering Aurelia to him as his bride. At first, I expected this to be an enemies to lovers troupe which is not one I’m overly fond of, but this tale turns quickly as the two main characters find common ground. 

 

The romance between Aurelia and Cassius appears ill-fated from the start. Her obligation to her brother keeps her locked into what will be a loveless marriage to the elderly Governor. Thank goodness this is romance, so held hope they would find a way to be together.

 

If you enjoy romance set in an historical setting with just enough detail to sweep the reader to the long-ago time, then you will love Soothsayer as much as I did. I look forward to reading the next book in this series. Happy reading!

 

Excerpt: 

 

Aurelia watched as Cassius struck again, and again, each strike more forceful than the last. She could see from the way he brought down the sword with each try the mounting tension in his body. Finally, no more than two steps into the field of thorns, Cassius growled a barely audible curse, then turned to face Aurelia. He wiped the sweat off his brow with the back of his hand, his chest visibly rising and falling as he tried to catch his breath.

She knew better than to say anything, and in any case the intensity of his eyes as he looked at her told her everything she needed to know.

As his breathing slowed and his temper cooled, he sheathed his sword and stepped closer to her. “These vines do not intend to be cut today, but perhaps we do not need them to be cut. My lady, please forgive the impropriety of this request, but if you will follow my instructions, I think we may be able to make some progress against this terrible field of thorns.”

Aurelia replied without hesitation. “Ask, and I will do as you say.”

Looking as though he had expected more of a fight, Cassius nodded. “Please, if you would come closer, my lady.”

Ignoring the lightness in her stomach at his request, Aurelia moved closer to him.

“If we cannot cut the stubborn vines, then perhaps we can move them away, far enough and for long enough a time that we may pass by.”

He took his shield in his left hand and held it in front of him. It was an oval piece of wood covered in leather that extended from his shoulders to his knees.

“I will hold my shield in position and move forward through the brambles, as though charging the enemy. If you will walk closely behind me—and I mean closer than my own shadow—then I can be your shield, and we can both get through to the other side. Do you understand?”

“I do,” she began, “but your shield is not big enough to protect you from the thorns.”

“It is true, I would give anything for my legionary's shield at this moment, but this shield is what we have, and it will do.”

He took a breath and turned around to face the enemy thorns.

She stood a couple steps behind him and did not move.

He turned his head to look at her and motioned for her to come to him with his free hand. “My lady,” he said, almost shyly.

Aurelia felt a tingling in her chest, but took a step toward him.

“My lady, I cannot protect you unless you are right behind me. Please.”

She took another step, until her toes were nearly touching his heels.

“I sincerely apologize for the seeming impropriety of what I am about to suggest, but, if you would, please, have your feet touch mine, so that we may take each step as one. And I think it may be easier if you would—if you don't mind, that is—put your arms about my chest and bury your head in my back. Just let me lead you. Trust me, my lady.”

“I trust you, Cassius,” she said, just loud enough for him to hear. She had not intended on saying his name.

Cassius nodded, then looked away from her and raised his arms. She appreciated the fact that he could not watch her tentative movements as she willed each arm to be raised to the level of her chest, her hands still gripping the edges of the cloak he had put on her. She slid her feet forward until her toes touched the heels of the soldier's shoes, at the same time bringing her arms full circle around his broad chest.

She felt his right hand gently grip each of her wrists in turn through the cloak she still held tightly in her balled fists and pull her arms more closely against him, until she had no choice but to allow the fronts of her thighs, abdomen, and chest to be pressed against his body.

She swallowed hard and, closing her eyes, brought her forehead to rest against the soldier's back. At her touch, she felt his strong body tense up, then gradually relax.

“Are you ready, my lady?”

She answered softly, speaking into his back. “Yes”

Audio Book Review: Olive Bright, Pigeoneer by Stephanie Graves

Olive Bright, Pigeoneer by Stephanie Graves


 

 

Publisher & Release: Kensington Books 

Setting:  WWII, Pipley, England

Genre: Historical Fiction

Length: 368 Pages

Rating: 2.5 Gold Crowns

Book Description: 

Though war rages across mainland Europe and London is strafed by German aircraft, the little village of Pipley in Hertfordshire bustles along much as it always has. Adrift since her best friend, George, joined the Royal Air Force, twenty-two-year-old Olive Bright fills her days by helping at her father’s veterinary practice and tending to her beloved racing pigeons. Desperate to do her bit, Olive hopes that the National Pigeon Service will enlist Bright Lofts’ expertise, and use their highly trained birds to deliver critical, coded messages for His Majesty’s Forces. 
 
The strangers who arrive in Pipley are not from the NPS. Instead, Jameson Aldridge and his associate are tied to a covert British intelligence organization known as Baker Street. If Olive wants her pigeons to help the war effort, she must do so in complete secrecy. Tired of living vicariously through the characters of her beloved Agatha Christie novels, Olive readily agrees. But in the midst of her subterfuge, the village of Pipley is dealing with another mystery. Local busybody Miss Husselbee is found dead outside Olive’s pigeon loft. Is the murder tied to Olive’s new assignment? Or did Miss Husselbee finally succeed in ferreting out a secret shameful enough to kill for? With the gruff, handsome Jameson as an unlikely ally, Olive intends to find out—but homing in on a murderer can be a deadly business . . .

Vikki’s Musings

 

Thanks go to the publisher and Net-Galley for the complimentary audio copy of Olive Bright, Pigeoneer by Stephanie Graves and narrated by Rachael Beresford. I voluntarily agreed to read and review this audio book prior to publication. My opinion are my own, and no one has influenced them.

 

Olive Bright, Pigeoneer is set in a sleepy British village during WWII. I listened to the audio and struggled with focusing on the story, but it was not because of the narrator. Rachael Beresford has a lovely voice, but the story just wasn't compelling enough. The characters didn’t pull me in, and the pacing is slow. I am being kind in giving it three crowns. Normally, I thoroughly enjoy novel set during WWII, and found the premise of carrier pigeons intriguing, so I truly wanted to like this book.

 

Olive Bright’s character is extremely impulsive and determined to break the rules to such an extent, it kept me from liking her. She seemed much younger than her age. Her willingness to deceive her father did not sit well with me.

 

This was supposed to be a mystery, but it never pulled me in as this genre usually does. While there is murder, spying, and some suspense, it fell flat for me, but that may not be the case for others. Reading is subjective, and what appeals to one reader doe not to another. I fell in that second category. Happy reading and listening!

Vikki’s Musings

 

Thanks go to the publisher and Net-Galley for a complimentary copy of Boone: Eternity Springs by Emily March. I voluntarily agreed to read and review this novel prior to publication. My opinions are my own, and no one has influenced them.

 

Boone: Eternity Springs is a great addition to The McBrides of Texas series. The pacing kept me engaged from the first page to the last. The book is well written with engaging characters and a plot that will touch your heart.

 

Hannah Dupree’s character is such a tortured soul with personal losses few can handle, but she is determined to do it. While taking a cleansing journey, she stumbles upon the enchanting town of Eternity Springs. She feels it’s a place of solace, a place where she can heal. 

 

Boone McBride is a compelling hero who hides his pain behind his smooth-talking ways and astonishing good looks. When he accepts custody for an infant from a young woman he believes he failed, he’s determined to be the best father possible. Although he has a lot of complications in his life, he can’t resist Hannah. In her, he senses another wounded soul, and he wants to help her find peace.

 

The romance between Hannah and Boone is lovely. Since both of them are recovering from their troubled past, they fit together from the beginning, and I truly wanted them to find their happy ending.

 

If you enjoy contemporary romance that has a character-driven plot with the amazing characters from the Eternity Springs series, then you will love Boone as much as I did. While this can easily be read as a stand-alone novel, I encourage you to read Ms. March’s Eternity Springs series. It’s amazing. Happy reading!
