'The Harbour Falls Mystery was the real reason I was here. I had every intention of basing my next novel on the facts of the case. I was tired of fiction; I wanted to write a true crime novel. Plus there was a little part of me— the detect

Lies, blackmail, affairs and deceit


Oh, WOW! The romantic suspense genre is alive and kicking! It's been ages since I enjoyed a mystery/romance so much... It reminded of the tons of Nora Roberts, Linda Howard and Beverly Barton's books, I devoured in my late teens. Sexual tension, chemistry, a classic whodunit and so many details, turns and suspense to leave you breathless.

Maybe 3.5.

I started this one a while back and stopped reading it for a while. In a bit of a book slump so went back to it again…. The pace picked up a bit and it was a good enough read.

Did not know who to trust and believe while reading it, right to to practically the very end.

Not sure if I would call the ending a “cliffhanger” – it obviously left it open for the next book but I don’t know if I really cared enough about the characters to pick up the next installment … maybe sometime in the futur

I needed a change. Something to cleanse the angst-ridden palate I've had riding me of recent. This was the answer. Romantic suspense is a great sub-genre if you haven't delved into it before.
It combines my essential demand for romance with an air of mystery--you can't go wrong. With the right book that is!

Harbour Falls has been on my list for awhile. Finally getting into the mood, I fell into this book and fell in love with it's atmospheric presence.

This sexy, romantic and suspenseful mystery story holded my attention from the beginning to the end and I loved it!

From the first page Grey engulfs you in the mystery that has haunted Harbour Falls. Maddy is determined to figure it out once and for all. The chemistry between Adam and Maddy is undeniable. I absolutely loved it and could not get enough. You are left in the dark about what is really going on through most of the book. Between the mystery, the suspicious acting people, and the sexual tension of Adam and Maddy, Grey keeps you on the edge

An unsolved mystery brings an author back to her hometown with hopes of solving the crime that will become the story for her next best seller. What happens when your prime suspect is a gorgeous and hot billionaire who steals your heart?

This debut romantic suspense included all the elements that make a challenging read and keeps readers on the edge of their seats. I especially loved the setting on a small remote island -- where there are some strange characters roaming around.

Well-written plot f

*** 4.25 Stars ***

Just what I needed, a romance suspense! This story was a mystery begging to be solved and had me acting all Nancy Drew. There were so many key players in this game, everyone was a suspect, and I thoroughly enjoyed attempting to put the pieces of the puzzle together. The story was tangle of lies, secrets and deception, and I just needed to know how it would all end. The romance aspect was missing something, and that's where the story fell a little short for me. The intense build
4.5 stars

"Much like the Harbour Falls Mystery itself, the man at the center was a puzzle. And I longed to solve him piece by piece."

It's been five years since Madeleine Fitch returned to Harbour Falls. As a famous mystery-crime novelist claiming to get away due to "writers block" Maddy doesn't want anyone to know why she's really staying at Fade Island. She's doing some investigation and research for some inspiration for her next mystery book and what better research then to study a man who was
