Two finished, one to go. This has been an excellent reading day.
The first one, finished early today, was enjoyed even though there was something familiar about it, as if I’d read it before. Maybe it was in a collection or something. I couldn’t decide for sure where it could have been. Still, it was time well spent.
Ranger Faith (Texas Ranger Heroes Book 4)
Last Christmas, profiler Emilia Sanchez barely escaped the clutches of a serial killer. All she wants is to forget the incident and move on with her life, especially since the murderer is dead. But when she receives a poinsettia along with a threatening message, it triggers Emilia’s worst fears—that she’s not safe after all.
Texas Ranger Bennett Knox has steered clear of Emilia since the day he rescued her from a killer. The beautiful profiler is smart and brave, but Bennett knows his presence brings back painful memories. The case has always haunted him too. He had concerns with the way the investigation ended.
The second book was started and finished today. On one hand, it was an enjoyable read, on the other hand, it wasn’t. That’s why I was able to finish it quickly and move on to my third book for the day. The problem was excessive unnecessary detail. I will confess to reading less than half of the book, jumping ahead every four or five chapters to find out how it ended. It was worth it.
I did enjoy the parts that were vital to the story and would be happy to see a rewrite.
Sophie’s Search (Search the North Country Book 1)
Sophie Stearns and her search dog, Belle, flee to the mountains that feed her soul and straight into the arms of the one man she could truly love. If only he didn’t hate her.
Widowed and buried in debt, Sophie Stearns is not going to pin her dreams on a man again – even if Patrick O’Brien is the man of her dreams.
Patrick O’Brien learned the hard way city girls will rip a man’s heart out to get what they want. After his ex-wife’s betrayal, he bolted to the Adirondacks to lick his wounds and forge a new life protecting the fragile mountain ecosystem from development. The best way to stop the newest threat, Shopsmart is to shutdown their environmental engineering contractor, Sophie Stearns.
When a saboteur destroys Sophie’s project and threatens her life, only Patrick’s intervention can save her business. But Patrick must decide which is more important: his principles or his need to protect the Adirondacks.
This current read is the best of the three. No speed reading or skipping ahead chapters at a time. I know for sure something vital would be missed and time would be wasted backtracking to see what it was. To say nothing about ruining a perfectly enjoyable read with foolish interruptions.
Expired Getaway (Last Chance County Book 7)
Bridget’s whole world came crashing down six years ago. Now she’s back in her home town with a murderous colleague and a cartel on her tail, and no idea of the secret that awaits her. If she doesn’t track down the enemy, their entire client list could be in danger—along with everyone she loves.
Last Chance police officer Aiden Donaldson wants nothing more than to right the wrongs he’s done by being the best cop—and father—he can be. Until the woman he thought he’d lost comes back into his life, throwing his best laid plans upside down. While the threat comes from every direction, Aiden and Bridget must reconnect if they’re going to have a hope of coming through this. With the help of their friends they just might find the last chance they’ve been looking for.
I’m paused at an exciting part and need to get back to it while there is still time to find out what happened. Are they still alive? And is he is as angry and I think he is? Keeping secrets is hard on a marriage but her secret… Whoa.
Happy Reading y’all
