I really enjoyed the twist and loved the hope that her books offer. I often see unusual characters or plot twists in Edie Ramer's books and I enjoy seeing where she goes with those unique ideas. She also does a great job with using second chance as a major theme and her characters are worth cheering for. In Rules of Love & Murder, the killer is revealed almost at the beginning, but how that person will play into the plot is one of the real mysteries. Knowing Ms Ramer's writing, it was no surprise that I rooted for August and Elle. Elle is such a delightful person and August has faced so much in his life. I read this second book in the series first but I do not think anything in it will take away my pleasure in reading Truth about Love and Murder.

Laurel Beacham of the Beacham Foundation and Jack Hawkes, of who-knows-what, are together again! What could be better? While Laurel doesn't completely agree with me, Jack makes sure she has no choice in the matter; the reader is sure to delight in some of their interaction but these two art specialists make an awesome team in the serious business of fighting evil in the world of art!
The Bodies of Art Mystery series is a trilogy, so I have one more book to look forward to with the awesome team of Laura Beacham and Jack Hawkes. While I believe that a reader who reads the books in sequence will enjoy watching the development of their relationship, Mark Masters could be completely enjoyed as a stand-alone. On the other hand, once you read it you will want to go back and read Conspiracy anyway just because it is that good.

I think it is because the main character seemed so real and she had good sense, she got irritated at irritating things, she loved her daughter and was willing to work with her mother, she didn't always act the way she thought she should; that is real life. I know that I am rooting for her and for Detweiler. I enjoyed all of the characters who seem to belongs to the series, once Miss Something got her business together. It is a small thing, but I appreciated that people who seem tight for money were not taking vacations; as one who has had to live on a tight budget it really bugs me to see characters that I otherwise like acting so irresponsible. I life to be able to respect my characters as I do Kiki, and mine they do become. ...more

Edge of Grey is so awesome that I read it almost nonstop by flashlight! I fully expected White to show up in the first chapter but he didn't! I was not able to predict much of anything that happened. When I think roller coaster ride, I usually think of the old fashioned scary rides that went up and down really fast but Edge of Gray was a truly modern roller coaster with all the loops and twists....more
How awesome! I don't not know if Devious Minds is even better than the other Shelby Nichols books or if it because I just finished reading it, but thaHow awesome! I don't not know if Devious Minds is even better than the other Shelby Nichols books or if it because I just finished reading it, but that book is fabulous! When I am reading, I am so drawn into the book that the world fades away. I just spent several days in Paris!!!
Of course only a little of it was spent enjoying the gorgeous city but that isn't why Shelby was there. The agreement she had made with an FBI agent has her flying to the City of Lights without even knowing what she is supposed to do there. It doesn't take long before the situation becomes evident and terrifying. Fortunately for Shelby, Uncle Joey is not pleased and does not trust Blake so he send someone to back her up. If you are a fan of the series, sigh now! ...more

I liked the extended interaction with more characters in Ever Hopeful, but the great people from the first book are still around and contributing to the warmth that is Evers. I loved John in the first book and love him even more in this one as we get to see where his pain comes from and watch his strength and heart win over Katelyn. Katelyn's dad has kept her away from Evers for over 20 years since her mother was murdered. Katelyn doesn't understand and is hurt by her dad decision and is jealous of his relationship with John. Once Katelyn's learns that her dad doesn't have long to live she determines to move to Evers, and we see her love of the town and its people, especially John, grow. John believes that her dad kept "Kate" away from home because she witnessed the murder whether she remembers it or not. Apparently he isn't the only one who believes that since someone seems determined to drive her away and bodies start showing up. I originally read this book under the title Everlasting. I am so excited that the third book will now be released under the SilverHart label!...more
