    Ellen leaves Manhattan and her Kennedy-esque fiance for Beacon, Maine. What should be a one-day trip is quickly complicated when she almost drowns in the chilly bay and is saved by a local carpenter. The rescue turns Ellen into something of a local celebrity, which may or may not help her unravel the past her grandmother labored to keep hidden. As she learns about her grandmother and herself, it becomes clear that a 24-hour visit to Beacon may never be enough.

    Enjoyed the story, characters and of course the happy ending. Found myself laughing out loud re: the scenes at the local watering hole -The Antler. Wonderful descriptions of Maine. Look forward to more works by the author.

    The time is now. The place is the Trident, a long-range research vessel hired by the reality TV show Sealife. Aboard is a cast of ambitious young scientists. With a director dying for drama, tiny Henders Island might be just what the show needs. Until the first scientist sets foot on Henders, and the ultimate test of survival begins.

    Story

    Good narrator with a story incorporating a reality show + a bit of Jurassic Park, with a smidgen of Alien, evolutionary theory, good vs. evil men, likeable characters, an ending that makes you hope for a sequel and definitely could be made into a movie. Well done, Mr. Fahy.

    Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared "industry parties", bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem's lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail. But Alex doesn't have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach....

    Cryptic dying words from a murdered homeless woman in present day San Francisco unlock a decades-buried secret that changed history. Now a pair of ruthless assassins are sent to cut the few living "loose ends." And a young, resourceful woman on the run encounters a determined man with his own connected past and vengeful agenda. Forced to partner for survival and answers, a fast-paced and deadly game of cat and mouse ensues.

    "Excellent read"
    Overall

    Well written, interesting characters and historical background. Highly recommend. Did not want book to end, even after 17 hours. At (1) credit, it is a super buy. Enjoy!

    Sunny Alvarez and Mac Reilly always seem to find trouble in the south of France. This time, all the trouble began in Monte Carlo. Sunny’s relationship with Mac is in jeopardy, and Monte Carlo beckons. Soon Sunny is pulled into a web of intrigue involving a series of robberies of high-end jewelry stores. Then there’s her wanna-be-new-friend, who turns out to be a sociopath, involved in the sale of sex and in blackmail.

    A User says: "What a waste"
    "Thoroughly enjoyable"
    Overall

    Sunny and Mac in Monte Carlo and various European cities with an assortment of old and new friends and foes, mystery and love with a bit of blackmail thrown in. The book was everything that you would need to spend reading on a plane, on a beach, on your porch enjoying the afternoon or in bed. Lots of smiles and encouragement for those of us who find that being 40 is A-OK and never too late to find love. Enjoy!
