The amazing Jody A. Kessler has made me such a fan with the Granite Lake Romance series, as the stories are so original, and addictive. Detecting Autumn is Autumn (sorry about that spoiler), and Shane's story, which I went back & forth between laughter & heart racing. But let me give you a bit of back story. Autumn is Elise's best friend, who happens to be with Shane's brother. She's a mysterious author, who has more than one pen name, and I won't tell you why in case this is your first ...more

LOVE Autumn and Shane's story!!! After reading Detecting Autumn, Autumn and Shane are my favorite couple of the mountain set series. Two people with different approaches to how they're living their lives at the moment. Autumn as a writer of popular series, throws herself into method-acting to get a feel for her main characters. While Shane is just looking to wrap up his active PI work to make it to Granite Lake to open up his brewery with his brothers and perfect his brews.

Meeting by way of a s

Autumn is a funny/crazy author that goes about writing her characters by becoming that character in real life, then writing what happens. I liked how she wasn’t afraid to try anything, but on the other hand I would have never done what she did. Especially when she got involved with someone from the mafia! Even though Shane was suppose to be working for Gabe, the guy in the mafia, I was glad he was looking out for Autumn. Things go crazy as Autumn had hooked up with two different mafia families. ...more

This story already starts full of action and some twists.
Autumn is an author and, to get ideas for her stories and characters, she ends up delving into her research of people and situations. But when she finds herself dating a mafia member, she didn't expect things to go wrong.
Shane Everett is moving to Granite Lake, but accepts one last job for Gabe Moretti, a well-known member of the mafia.
When Autumn and Shane's lives are threatened and they are forced to marry, neither of them expected what

Dealing with Autumn made Shane pull skills out of his hat to keep up with her shenanigans. Here we have a writer who actually feels the need to do her research in person, without letting the person know it's research. What starts as her harmless fun and book work ends up boiling into a comedy of messes, well not really funny while it's happening though. I love that these two have no intention of committing to anything but life has other things in store for them. It's great having all of the brot ...more

4.0 Autumn stars 

“All’s fair in love, war, and romance novels.” 

Detecting Autumn is the book 5 of the Granite Lake Romance series by Jody A. Kessler. This is the first time I read from Jody and she did not disappoint me at all. Well, I would say, I do recommend to read from book 1 because it will make me fill more complete with the series.

So Autumn Alex Monroe is a writer and Shane Everett is half an owner of an investigating firm. The story is simple and funny. I do like how Jody describes Autu

This is the fifth book in this series and is Alex and Shane’s turn. Alex is an author with several pen names, and to get a feel for her characters she immerses herself in situations. Gabe is a mafia member who Alex is getting to know for one of her characters. Shane is a private investigator who is closing down his business to go into another with his brothers. Gabe convinces Shane to investigate Alex. This is a well written story which is filled with drama, suspense, and is a steamy, hilarious ...more

What a great story! I was laughing during the whole thing as the main character, Autumn is hilarious. Ms. Kessler must have had as much fun writing her as I did reading about her.
Autumn is an author who tends to make up her own language, i.e. smexy is smart and sexy. Shane is one of the Everett brothers, who you’ll recognize if you’ve read any of Ms. Kessler’s other Granite Lake books. Plus, we get to catch up with some of the other characters from previous books.
I’m so glad Shane finally gets

This one took me a while to get into with so much jumping back and forth in the timeline, but once I got a feel for the characters, I enjoyed the story. This pair goes through a lot to get to their happy ever after, but it is an entertaining ride. Autumn, or Alex?, is an author who goes the extra mile to research a character. In this case, it may be a few extra miles, and she may be in over her head. Caught between two men with mafia ties is not a comfortable position. Shane's kind of caught in ...more

~~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ⭐⭐⭐ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Shane is intrigued by Autumn Alex Monroe the first moment he saw her at her friends engagement party. Autumn knows she needs to separate herself from the man she is dating Gabe and her ex Luca. While trying to escape them both Shane and Autumn are kidnapped and thrown into some pretty interesting positions. This book was just okay for me. It was a good read but I found at times the story lagged for me. I like the humor and connecti

It was a little confusing timeline wise. But overall I had a lot of fun with this novel! Two mafia men pining after the heroine makes for a crazy romance whirlwind. I definitely recommend reading if you want something that will sweep you off your feet.

I received a copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing.

Outrageously funny. Witty characters. Steamy romance. And a wedding at gun point. This is a must read!
