Zane Bigelow grew up in a beautiful, perfectly kept house in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Strangers and even Zane’s own aunt across the lake see his parents as a successful surgeon and his stylish wife, making appearances at their children’s ballet recitals and baseball games. Only Zane and his sister know the truth, until one brutal night finally reveals cracks in the facade, and Zane escapes for college without a thought of looking back....

I love all of Nora’s romantic suspense books. Every time I think she can’t top her previous book, she manages to surprise me again! I cried at the beginning of this book for Zack and his sister. My heart went out to them and broke many times over. After that, I started cheering them on! This author manages to tug at your heart strings and make you want to know more and more about her characters in every book! As always, her characters were well rounded and could easily be related to by most anyone. You didn’t have to go through child abuse to feel the pain and the sorrow for Zack and his sister. I totally recommend this book to anyone who loves a good romantic suspense with a great ending.

We're not gonna take it! Robin Parsons is sick of little guys (and girls) getting stepped on by those who say, "We've got the power. Shut up and deal with it." Robin refuses to shut up, and her methods will make you laugh as you cheer for the oddest group of justice seekers since the A-Team!

A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun. D. D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the woman - Evie Carter - from a case many years back. Evie's father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident. But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many. Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when she was still a victim - a hostage - and her captor knew this man.

I have been reading leases books long before this series! I love her detail and the characters! It has to be a challenge to write a book incorporating previous characters and a previous crime to tie it all up! Lisa did an awesome job in this book. She not only gave us a ending to Yves dad‘s murder, but she gave us more details about Flora, which had to be difficult. Flora is now one of my favorite characters along with DD. The main characters are well rounded and well formed. The best part about DD is that she can admit when she is wrong. That is a brilliant detail to have in her personality. I’ll be at that she hesitates to admit she is wrong. LOL
Flora has always been complicated to me, but we are getting more information about her and I definitely warmed up to her character in this book. Lisa has a talent for weaving a wonderful mystery that leaves you guessing until the end. I mainly read mysteries and I didn’t realize who it was until the last few chapters! You will not regret this purchase at all! If you enjoy Linwood Barclay or Lisa Scottline, you will love Lisa Gardner and her DD Warren series or any of her previous books.

It’s official. Fortune Redding is out of the CIA and a newly minted resident of Sinful, Louisiana. She never expected her homecoming to be all apple pie and hugs, but a murder wasn’t on her list of things to deal with before she’d even gotten her name stenciled on her mailbox. Boone Carre-Hooch, to the locals - was a drunk and a louse and had shafted pretty much everyone he’d ever done business with. So when someone kills him, there is no shortage of suspects. Unfortunately, Ally is at the top of the list.

I love Ida and Gertie! They are like a modern Lucy and Ethel minus Ricky and Fred but with a military background! LOL I love fortune to! She really adds something wonderful to all of the books and I think she inspires these two women to not just sit around and knit booties and get old! LOL I am even warming up to Carter and think he would be good for fortune! The author has done a really good job at making these characters likable and well rounded! You can actually like these characters and cheers throughout the whole book for them! That plus a great plot makes a great series big thumbs up for Jana! You can read these books as standalone’s, but really, once you warm up to these characters I think you will want to go back and read the series from the beginning. Just like I did!

Meet Whitney Whitaker. A hopeless romantic when it comes to real estate, she knows what it takes to find - and flip - the home of one’s dreams. A fixer-upper is like catnip to Whitney: She can’t resist the challenge of turning an eyesore into a priceless work of art. So when one of her clients decides to liquidate a crumbling property, Whitney seizes the opportunity to purchase it for a song. But soon a curious incident of the cat in the night-time leads to a change in tune.

I am a very big fan of her paw enforcement series! I haven’t been a cat person very much, but I am dedicated to buying the series as well! Sawdust was awesome! His personality was way different from Bridget in her paw enforcement series! I loved Whitney and all the main characters! I’ve warmed up to them immediately! I can’t recommend this new book highly enough! I will have to give it more than five stars because it really exceeded my expectations.

When the FBI asks the Sleuth Sisters to attend a retreat for "Love-Able Ladies", Barb opts out, unwilling to spend a weekend celebrating the joys of being some man's "little wife". Retta is eager to go since the venue is a swanky vineyard/inn on the Leelanau Peninsula, north of Traverse City, Michigan. Never a fan of large groups of strangers, Faye would rather stay home, but since Retta needs a "wing-woman", she doesn't get a choice.

I love all of the sleuth sisters books! Number five has some wonderful humor in it! I highly recommend these books for anyone who is just looking for a good mystery with some lighthearted humor and some really wonderful characters! My favorite is Faye! These mysteries are by no means life! Each one has held my attention and excited me to figure out who did it as well as enjoying three wonderful strong women with very different personalities!
