Romantic suspense has quickly become my favorite genre, and its books like Suspicion at Sea that continue to prove to me exactly why I will forever be a huge fan. This incredible story wrapped itself firmly around my heart and never once let go. With its quiet strength and gentle intensity, it had my heart overflowing with emotions I could never adequately put into words and had my soul soaring high into the Heavens. This tour de force is nothing short of being exquisitely breathtaking and wonde ...more
Wow I really enjoyed this! This was my first novel by this author and she just landed on my must read list! This will definitely be a favorite of 2015 for me!

She is staying at the local B&B and while enjoying the view from her balcony she locks eyes with a shirtless, sexy, sweaty jogger on the beach.

Ellie is a FBI agent in need of a long overdue vacation. She decides to stay at a B&B on Bailey island. All she wants is peace and quiet and to relax.
Justin is back home after his honorable discharge from the Navy. This Navy SEAL has it all. A large yacht as his home and beautiful college girls wanting to give him attention. What more could this bachelor need?
When he meets Ellie for the first time sparks fly. As a typical man he screws up royally and than does it again. Will he ever get it right

An FBI Agent and an ex Navy Seal well of course I'm gonna read it lol

Ellie is an FBI Agent on holiday after an undercover stint. While on holiday she meets Justin an ex Navy Seal. The chemistry between these is instantaneous. While a romance is brewing between them people are disappearing.

Although I found this a little slow to start once I got stuck into it I really enjoyed it. Two fantastic characters with great secondary characters. Looking forward to reading more from this author. If your l

I have never read a story by this author but I am glad I had the opportunity to do so.
The characters are easy to relate to and funny in the first part of the book and then you are on the edge of your seat waiting to read what happens. It is funny to see Justin mess up like most men. With love, loyalty and hope this book does no wrong.
If you like mystery, hot scenes, strong men and woman this book is for you.

First off, thanks to Hot Tree Promotions and Amie Nichols for providing me a copy of Suspicion At Sea to read in exchange for an honest review.

Secondly... Holy crab cakes and lobster tails! I have to say I love, love, loved this story. From page one I was pulled into a wicked world of lies, deceit and determined characters. Elli and Justin are a tag team couple that starts off with a bang... And a romp in a cave! It's like BOOYAH! Mine. Claimed! Taken! Not entitled for a return. (Laughs)

I enjoyed this suspense book. The romance was nicely intertwined into the plot so that it didn’t overwhelm the story. Don’t get me wrong Justin and Ellie were smoking and great together but Amie Nichols did a great job of not having this be the focus. What I love the most is that the plot is multi layered. So many factours are occurring and so many reasons for what is going on that you are kept on your toes. It’s like being in a game of clue and trying to solve what is going on.

Wow this author knows how to take a simple relaxing vaca and turn it into a suspense filled , edge of your seat read. I couldn't put the book down , I was hooked and had a serious case of bad detective going on !! Never once did I guess right !! Either the author is that good or I just stink at clues. With so much going on by the end of this story and all the connecting puzzle pieces it is hard to write a non spoiling review. I will say the characters were great and easy to relate to.

I am glad I stuck through the beginning. I really didn't care for Ellie or Justin in the beginning, but especially Justin. Here is how every line of the chapters in his POV went for like the first 10 chapters:
Damn she's so hot.
She's so f**king hot.
God she's so f**king hot I can't stand it.

It was literally the only thing he said. And it made me sad because it was seriously obvious that the only thing he cared about what that she was hot. He really didn't care to know anything about her; just th

Take one FBI Agent, add a Marine and throw in some mystery and you have a suspenseful beach read this summer.
Ellie is an FBI Agent taking a two-week break after an intensive undercover stint. She's staying in a bed and breakfast by the sea and plans on taking the time to unwind after all the stress she'd been through.
She didn't count on meeting Justin, a Marine living on a boat not far from her. They are attracted to each other but Justin has other things on his mind, like his sist

Suspicion at Sea is an action packet, sensually written story of an FBI Agent and a former Navy SEAL that will knock your socks off!
Ellie is just getting her bearings back after recuperating from a deep under cover operation that was extremely personal - she was even shot! She attempts to go on a relaxing vacation yet gets anything but rest.
Justin is a former SEAL and is just floating through whats left of his own life. Whe

Ummmm....ex Navy Seal and a badass FBI chick....yes please!!! I love a good mystery and add in a hot ex-Seal and I am all in. I was hooked on page 1 and I am pretty sure my family starved that day because I did not get up until I was finished. Ms. Nichols took us on quite the roller coaster. Every time I thought I had it figured out something else would happen or someone would say something and I would think oh no that isn't right, it's this person or that person.

A female FBI agent and a sexy Navy Seal. Two intriguing characters that will pull you into this book.

Ellie is taking a much needed vacation, only to have it turn into a whirlwind of suspense, violence, kidnapping, and more. Justin is the sexy Navy Seal that sets his sites on Ellie. When her life is in danger he vows to protect her.

The romance in this book was sexy and steamy but it was the suspense that keeps the pages turning. There were so many twists and turns that it kept you guessing. The

Ellie is a FBI agent looking for peace & quiet & much needed break on her vacation. She was strong enough to stand up to a man like Justin. Justin is back home after his honorable discharge from the Navy. All round amazing sexy book boyfriend.

They meet and sparks fly, amazing (seriously hot) sexy times ensue. Mistakes are made (of course) and other problems arise for these two that make the situation dangerous and Ellie needs to choose to trust or let go.

Suspicion At Sea was an amazing romantic

SUSPICION AT SEA is a fitting title to this book that is well written!!! This book was fun and easy to read giving me and other readers a mystery to solve. I just love a book that has "mystery", crazy romance, and strong characters that you make a connection with. The author makes you feel that you are right there on the island with Ellie and Justin. You feel sympathy for Suzi and I wanted to tell her to snap out of it! The main characters of this story come together really

This book is so good, I couldn't stop reading it once I got started.The authors writing is Very smooth, I really enjoyed the play back and forth between both characters.
Ellie is probably one of my new female favorites. She's been though heartbreak and problems of her own, however she has prevailed and come out stronger...

Amie Nichols has the perfect summer read in her recent release, Suspicion at Sea. Suspicion at Sea is an action packed, steamy suspense that will have you wanting your on seaside beach vacation.

Ellie and Justin are both strong characters, an FBI agent and former Navy SEAL, with vulnerabilities that pull you into their lives. I loved the interaction and kept turning the pages to see what would happen next.

I'll be on the lookout for more from Amie Nichols.

This was a very enjoyable book. I loved the characters and the story. It not only had the love, lust and sex but also some mystery and intrigue too. The characters, Ellie the FBI agent and Justin, the ex SEAL, worked well together and the chemistry was evident between them from the start. There were several supporting characters who blended into the story nicely and it was all tied up at the end into a nice neat package.

4 Crazy Stars!!!

This was a great read! Perfect summer read! It did start slow for me and had a hard time connecting with some of the characters but once things ramped up I couldn't put my kindle down. It was intense and I actually caught myself biting my nails at times.

This is my second Amie Nichols novel and most definitely will not be my last.
