Saving Sienna by Katie Reus
3rd book in the MacArthur Family series. Romantic suspense. Can be read as a stand-alone.
Sienna is a Private Investigator. She prefers to help and work for the underdog and often takes photos of cheating spouses. When her home is broken into and a client connection ends up dead, she calls on Detective Carson Irish to help hide and figure out why she’s now a target. Carson promises to help and decides he also needs her back in his bed. Their wedding date hookup wasn’t
This is another great novella filled with plenty of drama and suspense and written with characters that already had a past relationship. Everything that makes a novella work for me. With a hero and heroine that both work in dangerous fields, they reconnect as they try to find the bad guy, work out their own issues, and give in to the smexy urgings that have never gone away.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
My favorite thing about Saving Sienna is that the hero, Carson, was completely smitten with Sienna. I’m a big fan of guy-chase-girl stories. Sienna does do a bit of resisting but I felt like it was a lot and we got some great, quality couple time with these two. I’m enjoying this series of novellas. They are great, feel good romances.

I have really enjoyed this series, and I hope this book isn’t the last we see of this world.

Sienna MacArthur is a PI and Carson Irish is a cop. Sienna plays fast and loose, Carson is by the book. But when they get together, none of that matters.

Other than a couple of exciting nights a few months back, she does her best to coolly acknowledge him and that is all. After all, his sister is married to her brother and if they dated and things went south for Ca

Saving Sienna was a great read. That was fast-paced, full of sparks, a little mystery and great characters. And I was hooked from start to finish. I just wish it had been longer as I could've read so much more from Sienna and Carson.

Would recommend.

This super quick, highly enjoyable standalone romantic suspense has PI Sienna MacArthur making enemies with the wrong people, leaving it up to Detective Carson Irish to do his utmost to protect her. Not that she can’t protect herself, but it seems that neither of them mind a bit of one on one personal protection. Bodies are piling up left, right and centre, and it’s only a matter of time before they’re found. They need to get a step ahead, and work out who’s after Sienna, and why. Fast paced, se ...more

Aww, Saving Sienna is a sweet and sexy little surprise of a novella! The third in the McArthur Family series (my first), this story follows Sienna McArthur, P.I., and detective Carson Irish as they work together to figure out who broke into Sienna's home and seems to be after her.

The two met previously--his sister married her brother--and they had a hot and heavy but all-too-brief fling. Carson got too serious too fast for Sienna though, and she bolted.

Saving Sienna is the last novella in the MacArthur Family series by Katie Reus and it focuses on the sister, Sienna and Carson who is the brother to her new sister in law from the first novella, Falling for Irish.

Sienna MacArthur, a P. I. who always did things her own way. She had ways of getting what she wanted that others would never understand. She liked to break a few rules if it meant getting the end results she needed. Her latest case was one she couldn't refuse, she was helping a client get what she deserved from her lying husband.

While doing her job, she landed right in the middle of some trouble, thankfully her sister-in-law Kathryn's ( FALLING FOR IRISH ) brother was at the

Rating: 3.5 stars

Though only 90 pages, this author proves once again she can pack a full story within a short novella. I "LOVE" the fact she delivers patient, determined to get the girl, good guy heroes who live up to that label and my expectations.

Sassy Sienna seemed to be exactly what completely smitten Carson had been looking for. In fact, if a knucklehead decision had not been made previously, I'm pretty sure he'd already put a ring on it, folks. Lucky for us though we get a backseat to thi

The tag line for this book does not lie! "[I]f you’re in the mood for quick, light romantic suspense read" this is definitely a perfect choice. Sienna is a private investigator - her work is fast paced and exciting - and just a little dangerous. She and Carson Irish are connected by the marriage of their siblings and have hooked up more than once. But Carson scare Sienna - and she refuses to pursue more than what they have had in the past. Carson wants it all with Sienna. He's been discouraged a ...more

Saving Sienna is book three in Katie Reus’ new MacArthur Family series. They are all novellas but are standalone titles, so don’t let the fact that it’s the last in the series put you off. You can start with this book or only read this book and have no issues following the plot or the characters’ relationships.

Sienna MacArther is a tough PI who doesn’t like to play by the rules. Carson Irish is a by-the-book detective. He’s been captivated by Sienna for a while and wants her in his life again...

Saving Sienna is a short fast paced novelette by Katie Reus. While it is the third in the MacArthur Family Series it is unique from the other two. This time it is the MacArthur sister Sienna MacArthur who is the main character in danger. Then it has Kathryn’s brother Carson Irish as the main male character. These two have a history thanks to being related to Daniel and Kathryn (Falling for Irish).

This story reads well as a stand-alone in the series as each of the previous did too. While family i

After Falling for Irish and Unintended Target I was already on the lookout for the third installment of the MacArthur family so, when saving Sienna appeared on Netgalley, I dove right in.
Sienna is a PI, who likes to take on cases of women being wronged by theirusually soon-to-be exes. But this often lands her in difficult situations of people holding a grudge against her revelations. And since most guys can't handle her risky profession, she has sworn off men. So, although she had a very nice an

This is the 3rd installment in the MacArthur Family series and can absolutely be read as a standalone, although I recommend the other books as well because I did really like them too! In this one we get Sienna and Carson's story. Sienna becomes a target while working a case, but she is unsure who is actually targeting her. Carson is a rule follower, but he also will do what he must in order to keep Sienna safe. And make her realize that what they have could be it for them.

I’m really enjoying this series. Sienna is exactly what I’d hoped for, and Carson is definitely her perfect match. Sure, they’ve got some walls to break down, but if they can just survive the mess that Sienna finds herself smack dab in the middle of, they’ll be able to work on finding their forever. That is, if they survive whoever is trying to kill people.

I really like how this author doesn’t fall back on the “he went wild while they were apart” nonsense for her men. Carson and Sienna had some

Detective Carson Irish is Kathryn's brother and has had a thing for Sienna MacArthur since his sister/her brother's wedding. He seems to pop up when she gets herself into sticky situations, but when things get bad (her life is in danger) he drops everything to make sure she is safe. Sienna loves her job and it feeds her ADHD, allowing her to stay moving and solving the puzzles that she is hired to solve. Her weakness, however, seems to be Carson, even though she cut things off abruptly when he a ...more
I love this series of Katie Reus. It's 3 quick to read, but oh so satisfying stories of family. This is little sister Sierra MacArthur's story. She's mischievous, strong, loves solving puzzles and helping others. She's a PI, much to her protective older brother's frustration. She seems to specialize in helping women who have been hurt and taken advantage of by men.

The story opens at the wedding of her oldest brother Daniel and Kathryn Irish's wedding. We found their story in book #1. Kathryn's

The final book in the Macarthur Family Trilogy, Saving Sienna was a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours. This was a fast paced, romantic suspense, novella featuring the third Macarthur sibling & only daughter, Sienna, and Detective Carson Irish who was introduced in the first book as the brother of Katherine. There is some history between Sienna and Carson but when things looked like getting serious Sienna developed a case of cold feet & ran. When she ends up in danger from her job as a P.I ...more

Can two people with very different personalities fall in love? The third book in the MacArthur family series is about Carson and Sienna. Even though Carson and Sienna are very different from each other, they can’t ignore the strong attraction zinging between them.

I have enjoyed reading all the stories in this series. They are all short, romantic, suspenseful and engaging. So, I was excited to dive into this one about Sienna and Carson.

Detective Carson Irish has been thinking of PI Sienna MacArthur especially since they spent the night together after their brother and sister got married. He cannot stop thinking about her and she has kept him at bay by not returning any of his calls or texts.

This one was a whole lot better than the first two in the series. I’m almost tempted to change the other books to a 2-star rating compared to this one. This one had the suspense in true Katie Reus style. Meaning even if you knew who, there was a twist and you had to think, and still you didn’t know. Even if you knew. You know?

It suffers a little under being a novella. It’s simply too short to have any real character development. But that’s to be expected. It’s always going to be insta-love in a
