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

Sam and Marcie’s lives intersect at a crucial juncture. Marcie has gotten herself in too deep in the world of high-grade marijuana, and Sam has left the DEA to do his own investigation to discover who set him up as the fall guy in an international drug bust gone bad. 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.
The Choice by Lorhainne Eckhart has an interesting paranormal twist. Marcie is able to read auras

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

I have been impressed with Lorhainne Eckhart's writing since I started reading the Friessens series, but this series is totally different byt I can onky think, "wow."

While in part a love story, there is a great deal of emotional drama, supernatural and mystery added.

Sam is on a mission to crack a drug ring. He meets Marcie when she is mugged in the airport and her backpack stolen. The mugger fave her a push and she fell and cracked her head causing her to have amnesia.

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

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—

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

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

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!

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.

This book is hard for me to review. I wasn't totally disappointed with the book but it did have it's flaws. I would actually rate this book 2.5 stars.

First off this book is categorized as a romance but for me it really wasn't. I felt like the romance was just thrown there because the author needed another element to the story. This book is really more of a suspenseful paranormal read than a romance read. And to be honest the "romance" between the to MC's was not really believable. It was hard to

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

There are no words for this book. The intrigue and mystery throughout this book makes it a must read. Suspense is in every page, as the reader tries to come to terms with the plot and how the villain will attack. Really enjoyed this book.

Great Read. Are we surrounded by other spirits, can good overcome evil, are our paths already set, this story leaves new with these questions and many more.

While Sam tries to help Marcie find her way away from the dark and into the light, they know they have to battle their own personal demons, as well as the real monsters in the world.
