This is a wonderful book of three stories from Fern Michaels, Donna Kauffman and Melissa Storm. I have had the pleasure of reading books by Fern Michaels and Melissa Storm in the past to which I have always enjoyed but it a first time read by Donna Kauffman. Each story is about a Homecoming of different types but the main message in each was the love of home and family no matter how you have lived your life until now.

THREE’S A CROWD - Fern Michaels ****
Samantha Stewart has not been home in over 3 years, but she finds it time. Time to face the past and live for the future in the place she calls home. These last three years have been wonderful, eye-opening, scary, frightening but she would not change a single thing about who her life has a war correspondent.

My Review

I was not aware that this was book two of a series when I received this copy of this book.  Had I been aware the start may have been easier for me to get a handle of, as I was a little bit confused with the Delilah/Lilah name changing.  The start if full of people and character with a lot of information to grab onto but I am also a shift worker so it may have just been my mental frame of mind at the time.  I was glad I stuck with it as the story started to grab me as did the setting, Alaska I am always a sucker for any books in this wonderland.

This brings me to the ending............... it just ended and I want so much more to happen there are still so many questions about Boone's past not answered.  I may have not read book 1 but you can sure guess I will be reading a b...

This story will have you on the edge of your seat as you try to figure out who is behind all the harassment poor Bella Carismo is facing. Bella just want to leave the past in the past and get on with her future, the future of her business and her life. But someone is not letting her find the peace and happiness she craves.

There are many twists and turns along the read that will keep you interested and enjoying every word. I found the ending a little different but as the author is planning another book in this series I am guessing some of my questions, I have maybe included in the next book.

Marco Petrazini is a senior detective on a murder case when he meets a woman that takes his interests. With his busy job, he never gets too involved with the woman in his life, and definitely not someone...

I devoured this book on one Sunday as I just could not put it down even to the frustration of my husband. I was lost in Issi's world a world of frustration, hope, creativity, loss and helplessness. To lose your memory must be the most frustrating thing to happen to anyone.

The book is full of everything you want in a great read, suspense, romance, mystery, intrigue, love, hope, friendship, chemistry but most of all soul mates. There are a few twists and turns along the way that will keep you even more glue to the pages as you take this journey with all the characters of this book.

This week I have had the pleasure of reading two books by Elizabeth Knox up until then I had not read any. I am hooked and totally in!!!! I have enjoyed them both but this one oh man it's hit all the emotions you could possibly have while reading a book. Twisted, action, heartbreak, dangerous, suspense, ass-kicking, betrayal and a little bit of love.

"Bet On Me" had me totally engrossed in every word, the good the bad and the downright sick words. The flow and action of this book kept you with the characters every set of the way. I have recently read a few MC books to which I am loving this genre at the moment.

Gamble had me right from the start with her story you had no other way than to feel her pain. Hart took a little while longer to win me over but when he did I was lost in his devotion...

My Review

I enjoyed this book until the end.. I was a little bit disappointed with the ending of this book.  It was all a bit of an anticlimax to a great suspensive read.  I have not read this author or any books in this series before this book.

I enjoyed the characters and found their situation to be realistic and entertaining.  The flow of the read was great and it keeps you wanting to more.  This book was not only a Romantic Suspense but a Second Chance story about Jax and Ali.  

Bob is a character that will win your heart as well on this journey.  Most of the man in this book will give you a nice warm feeling as they all do there job to protect one woman who has made a mistake in marrying the wrong person.  A person portraying himself as someone co...
