Check out the Blog Tour for The Choice by Lorhainne Eckhart. Be sure to stop at for my review on the 20th March 2012!

I don't want to start off on a sour spot with this novel, but it is a 'blurb novel'. This is the only reason it got bumped down to 4 stars instead of the 5 it deserved. It was just the blurb that got to me. It gave away too much information. I read the blurb after I finished the novel and it just gave away too much of the story-line. When I

Please note: I read this book in January 2012 from a copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

My Synopsis: Marcie is crazy in love with Dan, and will do anything for him - even carry marijuana on the plane from Washington state to New Orleans. However, once there she is robbed and shoved, hitting her head on the cement in the process - and losing her memory. Enter Sam, a former DEA agent whose investigation against Lance Silver - one of the biggest dr
A large scale marijuana operation, a drug lord, dirty cops/DEA agents, a tarnished reputation, old letters, ghosts and a dark entity from the past come together in this contemporary romance with some paranormal aspects.

This is a story about a woman who forgets her roots, gets taken in by a man full of and surrounded by dark entities, is manipulated into becoming his drug mule and marijuana cultivator, loses her memory, meets a good man and they, along with some friends, set out to bring this ve

Actual Rating: 3.6

This was an enjoyable read. I thought the story could have been more suspenseful. However, I thought the supernatural element of the story was unique. I never would have expected a supernatural element in a romantic suspense novel. The characters were enjoyable. I thought the relationship between Marcie and Sam was a lot better than the relationship between Marcie and Dan. That can be due to the fact that I did not like Dan as a character. Overall, an interesting and great re

Both victims of past love, there is a lot of mistrust between them. But they hold on to each other throughout and keep each other safe.

This book is a good mixture of thriller, action, mystery, romance, and a bit of supernatural thrown in for good measure. The main character becomes a drug mule of sorts but things happens that put her into the path of the other main character who will become her love interest. This is a long book, at times a bit too long, but the author managed to bring everything together really well in the end. I like strong women so found that the female lead character was a bit too teary eyed all the time an ...more

From the beginning, I was enthralled with the way the author wove the details of this story together. The incident where Marcie met Sam in New Orleans started a whole chain of events that kept the plot moving. Between witchcraft, police business, marijuana grow-ops and life on a small island, there was a lot going on all the time. The secondary characters were interesting and they added to the overall mystery and to the romance blooming between our hero and heroine.
The villain was believable—
The TBR Pile *Book review site*
Enter contest here:

This book successfully blends universal spiritual beliefs and virtues with passionate players. Although a little slow in the beginning, it redeemed itself quite nicely after about 60 or so pages. With her finger on the pulse of human emotion and life choices very closely linked with everyday issues, Ms. Eckhart is spot on with the chemistry between our hero and heroine. Their lives are emotionally drained and to the brink of hopelessnes

A very interesting and fascinating mystery, detective, romance novel. I was intrigued by the way the author, through a woman's sense of the spirit world, delved into the crime world. At the onset one would think that the story is going to be a detective story and how a drug operation is brought to an end but it is really a story on how a woman, through the choices she made ended up involved with both sides of the story. Plus she is being aided by spirits from the past if she would only open up h ...more

My review will be shorter than some of my others but with such a detailed Blurb, I don’t want to give away too much.

The Choice was not quite what I expected but it was a great read. I was drawn right into the story and lives of the characters to the point I stayed up late just to finish it. I do that a lot with the MM romance reads but not with with many others so, for me, that said a lot about how engrossing and powerful the story was.

As a proud Wiccan, this story intrigued me before I even ope

This is the worst end of the year book. It was predictable, full of cliches and half of the time I don't know what's happening. There are no explanation for things happening. The witch and magic thing seems to be a one big deus ex machina. The lead characters, who are all stupid, are given information on a silver plate by a ghost named Jerome. Cops and federal agents believing the words of a ghost! They are also outsmarted all the time by the bad guys! Stay away from this book.

I received this book through Library Things early reviewers. Sadly, life got in the way and I wasn't able to read it until now.

This was a good book!
The characters were likeable-well, except Dan, he was a great bad dude. You just knew he was rotten from the get go.
I am itching to find out what happens to everyone!
Teresa Petrovics
I found this book to be a very interesting read. A bit of magic and romance as well as suspense thrown in. For people who are in to one, two or all three of these things, I would recommend this book. This is the first book I have read by Lorhainne Eckhart and I am hoping to read some more of hers.
Literary  Chanteuse
The characters in this story popped to life quite quickly and from that point on I was hooked. The mystery that unfolded was gradual and enticing. The promise of a sweet love story and a happy ending were never certain therefore, it kept me guessing page after page. Action and drama balanced each other out well and over all the elements of great story telling are clearly present in this author's writing. This is definitely a book worth reading. 4.5 stars

The story was good. It was intense at times with more suspense and heavy drama than romance. I would have liked more romance.

We all know I am a lover of suspense! Add in some romance and you have a winning combination for me! I think that is what got me about this book! The romance was just missing :( Don't get me wrong, it was there.. just kinda not there.. Make sense?

I can’t believe I am finally done this book. I am a fast reader but this book took the life out of me. I don’t remember ever reading a book this long before. It was a good book that didn’t seem like it had much filler, but it could have been shorter – WAY shorter.

It begins off with Dan and Marcie. He is sending her away with his backpack and it is her job to get it to the right person since the bag contains marijuana. Marcie loves Dan and will do anything for him, even if it meant trafficking d

WOW! Not what I was expecting! But so much more! I haven't had a book grab me so hard that I read it at every possible time!
this book was ok. I'm more of a romance novel kind of reader and this book was mostly directed on the mystery of a world known drug dealer that they're trying to bring down. the beginning of the book made things interesting since Marcie had a slight concussion and lost her memory for almost a week. then after that everything is revealed to her and she's being helped with the hands of a cop after she's been helping a drug dealer Dan. so the book faces around her choice to get back on the right pa ...more

I'm giving this two stars rather than one because there was an actual storyline in there somewhere and I was interested enough to finish the book, although I skimmed through the last quarter of it. I wanted to find out what happened, but I had to force myself to finish.

The Choice could use a professional edit. The descriptions were tedious, detailed, and repetitious. The book could have been about half as long because we heard the whole story at least twice. Every time a character would tell an
