Amber Kelly, mining lawyer and amateur paleontologist, visits her family’s 19th century log cabin in the Colorado mountains and discovers a puzzle box hidden in a 200-year-old loom.

This breathtaking novel travels more than a century between two love stories set in the Australian seaside town of Lighthouse Bay. In 1901, a ship sinks off the coast of Lighthouse Bay in Australia. The only survivor is Isabella Winterbourne - escaping her loveless marriage and the devastating loss of her son - who clutches a priceless gift meant for the Australian Parliament. Suddenly, this gift could be her ticket to a new life, free from the bonds of her husband and his overbearing family.

When a brooch is broken, some of its magic is lost. When NYPD detective JL O'Grady is invited to be her brother's plus-one at Montgomery Winery's end-of-harvest gala, she plans to enjoy a fabulous weekend in Napa drinking wine, enjoying sunset dinners on the veranda, and watching her brother's high school basketball tournament. Instead, she's pulled into a murder investigation hauntingly similar to a New York City racketeering and drug case that nearly ended her career.

If you could sum up The Broken Brooch in three words, what would they be?

I was disappointed that they didn't go back in time in this book, but can't wait until the next one that comes out.

What other book might you compare The Broken Brooch to and why?

Nothing these books are amazing!

What three words best describe Teri Schnaubelt’s voice?

she is one of the best!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

There should be a film for this it would be awesome!

Any additional comments?

please hurry with the next one!

Tex gave everything he had to his country and his SEAL teammates. When an IED took away part of his leg, and his career, he devoted himself to his country and friends from behind his computer. He's always been the man that can find anyone, that uses his computer skills, legal and illegal, to keep people safe and to put the bad guys behind bars. But behind a computer is a lonely place to be. While he might put on a good front, Tex can't help but feel he's missing out when he sees how happy his friends are.

What disappointed you about Protecting Melody?

the storyline could have been sweet and innocent if the foul language had been left out, and if you like books that have strong sex in this book...

Would you ever listen to anything by Susan Stoker again?

not sure

Would you be willing to try another one of Stella Bloom’s performances?

Yes I like her voice

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

If the guy wasn't so demanding I almost thought he was the stalker he was very pushy and demanding
