Random Acts by Alison Stone is a sweet romance suspense story that had me from the start. I love it when a story grabs me in the first paragraph and puts me right there IN the story. I knew that I wanted to then try and figure out who was the Protector and why he was there hurting this woman. When an author can write a story and get their hook into me I want to believe it is going to be good. I would have to say that Ms Stone delivered. She developed her characters, saw plenty of

Random Acts by Alison Stone surprised me. It was a sweet romance that almost veered into inspirational territory, yet still told a good romantic suspense story.

Danielle Carson is a woman on the fast track to partnership at her high-powered law firm in Atlanta. She's tried her best to leave small-town Mayport in her rearview mirror. It's not that she doesn't love her sister Jenny and her grandmother back home, she does, but the town

Danielle Carson didnt have a lot of reason's to believe in God. No father around as a child and a mother that neglected both her and her sister and eventually left them all together in the care of there grandmother. Due to never having much as child Danielle vowed to make something of her life by getting a good education and a job that would financially support her to the degree she felt she needed to not feel like that poor lost girl she was so long ago. When she was in high school she had a hu ...more

Random Acts is a sweet romantic suspense with strong inspirational elements. I love romantic suspense, as it's my favorite genre, but I usually go for ones with a bit more heat than this one. Having said that, I still thoroughly enjoyed this book. I think that's because not only is the suspense plot well done, but the emotional level of the book is very strong. In my opinion, the romance is good, but I think the book wouldn't be nearly as strong without the relationship between Danielle and Ava ...more

Tragedy can lead you back home, love can keep you there. What leads Danielle home is her sister. What could possibly get her to stay? A little bit of love with an old crush and his ever so adoring daughter. Random Acts pulls two people together with a past and dares them not to go with the urge to just give in.

Danielle's job in a big city keeps her busy. Enough not to come home and visit more with her sister and grandmother. Isn't tha

This was a great blend of a wonderfully sweet romance with a kept-me-guessing suspense story. I came to care about the characters very much - as much as I wanted to know who the Protector was, I was sorry to see it all come to an end. Very much looking forward to Alison's next book!

A heart-warming Christian romance. Patrick and his daughter Ava were both total sweeties and easy to fall in love with. Strong opening, but I found the pacing a little slow in the middle.
