Review – ‘Murder in Vail’ by Judy Moore


Blurb 

Sally Braddock’s serene lifestyle atop a mountain in Vail, Colorado, changes drastically each year when her three spoiled children and their spouses visit her – and her money – for Christmas. They live off their trust funds, which are disappearing quickly, and spend most of the holidays bickering and hitting up their mother for money. 
This year, Sally makes an announcement that sends her children into a tizzy, an announcement so extreme that it pushes someone in the house to murder. The storm inside the house is matched by a raging blizzard outside, and the family finds themselves snowbound with a killer. 


Review 

What a twist! In this murder/mystery set at Christmastime, billionaire Sally Braddock is 51 years old and one of the richest women in the country. Her beloved husband died a few years ago and left her everything but she’s not one of those old, snooty ‘I’m better than you’ people. She’s kind, down-to-earth, in-shape, and plans to donate billions to charities. Her three children, however, are selfish, money hungry and broke despite the millions Sally and her husband left them in a trust fund. Her kids and their spouses always visit Sally once a year at Christmas to get money from her. They’re horribly rude to Helga, Sally’s best friend and housekeeper, and constantly insult Sally in roundabout ways. When Sally finally snaps and announces her plans to cut the bickering kids from their inheritance, it drives someone to murder.
But who? Everyone has motive to kill. Billions are at stake. Trapped in a house with a murderer, it’s snowing outside and the roads are impassible. No one trusts each other and the tension runs high.
I couldn’t figure out who the killer was until the end but I knew right way the person who was framed for the murder was innocent. The ending kept me on the edge of my seat and I was happy to see that everyone got their well-deserved comeuppance.
5 Stars

TEXAS TROUBLE SERIES

A western romantic suspense series with hot cowboys, a dash of suspense and a lot of southern humor--the perfect recipe for Trouble. All books in this series can be read standalone.

My Kind of Trouble, #1 Texas Trouble


When she left her hometown ten years prior, Cassie Bellamy had no intention of ever going back. But when her father is injured, she has no choice but to return, and can only hope that ten years was enough time to forgive and forget about the dark-haired devil who sent her running to Arizona.

Her question is quickly answered with a resounding no when her old pickup breaks down and Luke Matthews stops to help her. Although he's no longer the nineteen year old badboy from her girlhood fantasies, the sex-on-a-stick, fully grown man is even more of a force to be reckoned with by her heart.

To avoid him, Cassie hides out at the Double B Ranch with her father, but Luke Matthews isn't letting her run. He is on her two-yard line and won't be satisfied until he scores.

When doubts about her shady business partner turn into dangerous facts, Cassie realizes the only one she can turn to is Luke. But could she convince the jaded playboy lawmen to help her? And if he agreed, could she protect her heart while he protected her?

THE COWBOY WAY


Cowboys are a different breed...

They work hard, play hard and love harder. It's all about the ride, until the right woman makes them fall.

Hope for Christmas, the Cowboy Way novella that launched the series

Cord Dixon, Mr. Laramie in the world of western clothing modeling, loses his job because he refuses to sleep with his female boss. Christmas is coming, and his bills are due, so he takes the only job he can find. A mall Santa. Socialite wedding photographer, Hope Carlisle's life disintegrates when she ruins the wedding of the year. In one fell swoop, she loses her best friend, her business partner and her fiancé. Unemployed and needing a job fast, Hope takes a job as an elf photographer at the local mall. She is not looking forward to her new job, until she meets her sexy Santa. Individually, Hope and Cord's lives seem to be a hopeless mess. But with the magic of Christmas in the air, they work together to reclaim their lives and find love in the process.

Hope For Christmas was originally included in the holiday anthology Santa Wore Spurs. This novella launches The Cowboy Way series.

DEEP SIX SECURITY

An edgy romantic suspense series with heat, heart and humor.

Till Death, #1 Deep Six Security

Dave Logan, the owner of Deep Six Security, is stunned when Dallas FBI head, Susan Whitmore, darkens his doorstep accusing him of being the cause of her losing her job, and demanding he hire her. Even as his brain says no way, the Barracuda is a woman nobody can work with, his white-knight complex forces him to offer her a job as his very overqualified temporary secretary.

A wealthy couple who ordered a designer baby which wasn't delivered contacts Dave for help. To get answers for them, Dave has to get inside an overly-fortified fertility clinic going undercover with Susan as his temporary wife. The situation inside is worse than they imagined, and soon their pretend 'til death do us part' could become very real unless the two alpha personalities learn to work together to stay alive.

Review – ‘Birds of Prey’ by Judy Moore

Blurb 

A handsome young tycoon’s life is dictated by his fear of birds. His phobia is so severe that he’s afraid to even step outside. Imagine his horror when birds begin invading his beautiful new office tower. How are they getting in? And why?

Review

This is a short mystery story about a man with a severe phobia. Fear of birds. Ornithophobia. James hasn’t been outside in the sun for three years and gets physically sick when he even sees a picture of a bird, let alone a real one. He’s the CEO of a major company and spent $60 million to build a private office building with an indoor atrium, his sanctuary.
Too bad birds mysteriously find their way inside the building. Who brought them in, and why? James just wants the birds gone. His situation is pretty sad and I felt sorry for him. Though I guessed the culprit early on, I understood and sympathized with the bad guy’s motivation.
If you like bird mysteries, this is a really interesting story to check out.

Review – ‘Somebody Killed the Cart Girl’ by Judy Moore


Blurb 

Mandy Carter, the pretty 18-year-old cart girl, is found buried in a sand trap at an upscale country club in New England. Who clubbed
her to death … and why? That’s the question haunting Detective Abby Sanders, whose own teenage daughter looks so much like the victim they could have been sisters. A former competitive golfer herself, Abby quickly lets the country club crowd know that no one is above suspicion.

Who killed the cart girl?
• Mandy’s devoted boyfriend, Josh, the son of a wealthy plastic surgeon and his snobbish
wife who live on the golf course
• Josh’s mother, who thought the cart girl wasn’t good enough for her son
• Josh’s former girlfriend who hated Mandy
• The attractive golf pro who flirts with anyone in a skirt and has an endless supply of
tasteless jokes
• His jealous country club wife who is the city golf champion
• The female assistant pro who hates the head pro and wants to play on the golf tour
• The college golf star who is as competitive as she is beautiful
• A caddy at the club who was vying for Mandy’s affections
• The victim’s brother, a college student who got Mandy the job at the club
• The aging proprietor of The 19th Hole snack bar, who has some secrets in his past?


Review 

I don’t read a lot of mysteries but this one kept my interest. 
Detective Abby Sanders is investigating the death of an 18 year old girl, Mandy Carter, who looks a lot like her own teenager daughter. Mandy’s body was discovered a foot deep in the sandpit of the local golf course and Abby soon tallies up a long list of suspects. Was it Mandy’s boyfriend who’s been lying to the cops? Was it Derek who wanted to hook up with Mandy? What about Tom, her boss? Josh’s high society mom certainly didn’t like Mandy. Did she do it? Or what about a number of other people? As Abby deciphers clues and weeds through the lies, she pieces everything together and makes a startling discovery. 
This fast paced mystery keeps you on the edge of your seat. With so many suspects and possible reasons for any of them to commit murder, Abby is definitely up to her neck in ‘what ifs.’ I enjoyed the investigation procedure as Abby questioned and detained people, and I was pretty sure who the killer was about midway through the story but then things changed and wham! I didn’t see that coming. I love it when I’m surprised at the end and this book delivered. 
4 Stars

Blog Tour - 'The Chrysalis Series' by Michel Prince


The Chrysalis Series by Michel Prince
NA Multicultural Sports Romance

Chrysalis (Book 1)

In the annals of dysfunctional families, the Chisholm’s are working their way to the top. Drug abuse, an unwed mother with multiple fathers, and the questionable cash flow for the 'pretty one'. All this from a seemingly normal, two parent middle class family. But were the choices truly made of their free will?

Bad choices are a Chisholm family trait, one that confounds the youngest child, Ellie, who's trying to separate herself by making smart decisions. And falling for Oscar Jeffreys, the hottest guy at school, would be number one on the list of Chisholm family disasters. Yet the crazy part is it’s not a one sided attraction. Somehow Ellie has caught Oscar Jeffreys’ eye. Sure she could see the barriers between them. Race, age, popularity. They were at opposite ends of the spectrum. But a demon set to destroy her family? She can't see that.

Oscar provides security and acceptance Ellie never imagined she deserved. As the passion of first love grows, Ellie honestly believes she has a chance to beat the odds and live a happy, normal life. Then her world collapses around her. With the help of a guardian angel, Ellie learns of a world that has unknowingly surrounded her for years. And she'll have to find strength buried deep inside to save not only her future, but flush out and stop the demon in her midst.

Ellie will have to learn that sometimes the hardest lesson about growing up is accepting that you're worth more.

The Beam (Book 2)


When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things.-Corinthians 13:11

There comes a time in everyone’s life when they must put aside their childish ways. In the past year, Ellie Chisholm has fallen into the security of her relationship with Oscar Jeffreys, emerging with a stronger sense of herself. But now Ellie's mother has started inserting herself into Ellie’s life, treating her as if she were a child even though Ellie has begun to make very adult decisions for her future. Having finally consummated her relationship with Oscar, Ellie learns the powers inside of her stretch further than vaporizing demons.

Maria, the demon bent on revenge, has been reigned in by God but that doesn’t stop her from disrupting and threatening those around Ellie and Oscar. Ellie becomes off balance as Maria switches strategy and attempts to destroy Ellie from the outside. Now the gauntlet has been thrown down. Ellie must help her family achieve positive change and finally break the tie between her mother and Gaap or risk losing everyone she loves.

Can Ellie maintain her sanity while walking the last steps as a child?

Not Even Death (Book 3)


In one tragic moment, Ellie Jeffreys’ perfect life ended and the devastation of losing the only man she believed she could ever love and their beautiful child causes the hopeless resignation that life shall never again be worth living. Bound by a decree from On High, the demons who tormented Ellie for years have had to leave the Jeffreys alone, but they grow restless, sensing Ellie's despair and vulnerability. They lust for her. And they’re extremely resourceful.

Dr. Luke Page’s inability to save Ellie’s husband and son has him hoping to recover her crumbling mind and show her love does still exist in the world. Dr. Page feels immense pressure to be her security blanket in the concrete world, but thoroughly healing her presents a challenge that raises questions about his ability as both a physician and a human being. Ellie’s depression now leaves her susceptible to the vengeful demons. In the past, the sheer strength of Oscar's love and devotion fortified a barrier around Ellie, shielding her from the effects of the world's iniquities.

Will Luke’s love be enough to rise to the challenge of protecting her? Or will Oscar’s become like a phoenix letting not even mortality stand its way?

Unto Us (Book 4)


“No one ever said carrying demon spawn would be easy…” Ellie Jeffreys is unsure of when or where she woke up, but one thing is certain—she’s not alone. Having been violently ripped from her life, the return will be anything but smooth. Led back to the house and family she loves, Ellie soon learns an interloper will tie her to the enemy forever. Now unsure if the nightmare of Luke Page will consume her and finally allow Gaap to destroy the family she’s created, she discovers the only way forward is to move on from the past and accept her place in an ancient prophecy.

Read an Excerpt
Hopelessly shy and utterly repressed, Katherine Hart indulges in her risqué sexual fantasies online. Her virtual lover, Savage, is willing to meet her every need, especially once he discovers her naughty little secret—that, more than anything, she craves a masterful man. Fortunately, Savage is just that. And then some.
When Adam Trillo (aka Savage) discovers that the incredibly erotic woman he’s been tangling with online is actually his adorably demure co-worker, he is determined to seduce her IRL—in real life. He longs to release the wild Kat he knows lurks just below the surface. Using a beguiling mix of domination and persuasive charm, he draws her, relentlessly into his web until she is helpless to deny their mutual passion. Most especially when she’s tied to the bed…
Her Internet Lover…
“There’s something I want you to do.” His voice was low, hard; a certain, intense timbre vibrated through him to her, thrumming over the computer connection.
“Yes,” she breathed. “Anything.”
“First, what are you wearing?”
It was all Katherine could do to hold back her laugh. “Not that again.”
“Seriously. I want an answer.”
She shrugged. “A cocktail dress. Black. With heels.”
“Put on your teddy,” he commanded, and she complied.
She slipped off her dress and bra, dropping both on a forgotten pile on the floor, and then pulled her satin teddy from her suitcase. It felt cool slipping over her skin. It caught on her hard nipples, making them grow even fatter. She moaned as she rubbed them, you know, just a little, to enhance the mood.
“Mmm. It feels good.”
“Are you wearing the teddy?”
“Yes.”
“Perfect. What do you have on under it?”
“Nothing. Well, panties.”
“Perfect. Do you still have the heels on?”
“Yes.” She did. As much as she hated them, she loved the way they looked. Besides, the heels completely changed the way she felt in the black teddy. In the full length mirror behind the door, she looked practically sexy.
“How do you look?”
“Hot.”
“I’ll bet.” The words were guttered, heavy and harsh. “I wish I could see you. Now. There’s something I want you to do.”
“What?”
“I want you to go and get two ice cubes.”
“What?” Was he insane? She’d have to walk all the way through the hotel suite to the kitchen. “In my teddy?”
“Yes.”
“Savage, he might see me.”
“What if he does? Maybe he’ll fuck you. That’s what you want. Isn’t it?”
Katherine didn’t answer.
“Isn’t it? Deep down, you want him inside you.”
Again, she didn’t respond.
“Answer me.”
“Yes. Yes.”
“Then go to the kitchen. In your teddy. And get two ice cubes. Oh. And Wildkat?”
“Yes?”
“Before you go, take off the panties.”
“What?”
“Take them off. I want you completely exposed. And I want you to know how exposed you are.”
“I can’t.”
“You can. If you don’t, I’ll have to punish you.”
“But—”
“No Kat. No questions. Just do it.”
She stood by the door for several minutes, contemplating this challenge and, most especially, how it made her feel. She was liquid inside, and quivering. She would, she decided at length, go to the kitchen and get the ice cubes wearing her teddy, but she would leave her panties in place. Utterly bare-assed was a little further than she was willing to go, especially when Adam might discover her at any moment. Besides…Savage would never know she had cheated just a little.
Slowly she turned the knob and peered out into the hallway. There was no one there. She slipped through the shadows and into the living room, heading toward the kitchen. She pushed open the swinging door and froze.
There stood Adam Trillo cracking out ice cubes at the counter. His chest was bare—a magnificent panoply of rippling muscles and scattered darkling dust. He wore only baggy gray sweatpants held up, it seemed, by the enormous bulge in the front.
“Hey there Wildkat,” he purred. “What took you so long?”

Tristan’s Temptation by Sabrina York
November 17th
The red-hot sequel to Adam’s Obsession.
Tristan Trillo has one steadfast rule—thou shalt not fish in the company pond. That puts his executive assistant Shannon Weiss firmly out of reach. He tells himself the secret steamy computer simulations he creates—ones featuring a seductress with more than a passing resemblance to Shannon—are enough. But watching the virtual Shannon get spanked or tied up, taken from behind or while down on her knees, just makes him want the real Shannon more.
When Shannon discovers the depth of Tristan’s desire, she vows to seduce him in real life, his rule be damned. After a blazing, illicit tryst in Tristan’s office, he insists they can never do it again. So Shannon, ever the obedient assistant, makes certain the next time she seduces him, they do something completely different.
Poor Tristan is a man trapped between his steadfast rule and a burning passion. A rock, if you will, and a very hard place.
What people are saying about Tristan’s Temptation
“The scene where Tristan makes Shannon come clean with how long she has wanted him is beyond hot. *fans self in memory* And of course there is plenty of other smoking scenes that darn near melted my Kindle…Read this story!

Making Over Maris by Sabrina York

When über-nerd Jack asks Sara to make him more attractive to women, she can’t say no–even though it’s an impossible task. He’s shaggy and doughy and hopelessly inappropriate. He has no style or emotional intelligence but he’s a good person. And a great friend. What Sara never expects? Beneath all that fur and geekiness is a steamy hunk just waiting to emerge.
Jack takes Sara’s regimen very seriously, working out and losing weight until he feels like a new man. He even complies with her command to shave his beard–because Jack didn’t ask Sara to make him over so he would be attractive to other women. He only wants to be attractive to her. They go on a series of fake dates, each hotter and more sinful than the last. It’s not long before Sara discovers Jack’s secret desire to be dominated and what began as an arrangement becomes something amazing–something that could be real.

Review – ‘Vengeance is Mine’ by Kat Henry Doran


Blurb 

Ever consider going back to study hall and face down the school bully? 
The mean girls? 
The brainless jocks who made your life a pure misery? 
For Dru Horvath, gypsy orphan turned Pulitzer Prize winner; Rafe Archangeli, once the Scourge of Summerville and now leader of a multi-million dollar trust; and Fiona “Fat Aggie” Thorpe, current high fashion model with her own A-list agency, the opportunity to exact revenge is too good to pass up. 
Will they find vengeance they crave? 
Or something more valuable? 

Review 

This story is about three adults going back to their hated hometown for their 25th high school reunion. Though successful in their chosen fields, Rafe, Fiona and Dru would rather forget their painful past but they need to come to terms with it. When I first started this book, I thought for sure they’d seek revenge by murdering their old bullies but the story didn’t turn out that way. Instead Rafe, Fiona and Dru each find love with people they least expected and they rub their success in their former bullies’ faces.
The book is broken up into three parts, one for each main character, but the overall plot of the reunion spans the entire book.

Mad Dog and Archangel - For the first part, Rafe goes home for the funeral of his childhood friend and inherits a nine million dollar trust fund to divvy out to the community. As the resident former bad boy, he still lives up to his bad rep even so many years later. He meets Grace, a fun-loving former nun and human rights advocator, who helps him turn his con-artist life around. --- 3 Stars

The List - The second part is about Fiona. Once four-hundred pounds in high school, a fashion model as a young adult, and now the owner of a modeling agency, Fiona is healthy and happy with her life. She goes to the reunion as a favor to her best friend, Dru, and she meets Mick, one of the bullies who tormented her in school. Regretful of his past, Mick is now an attorney and only represents decent people in need of help. Sparks fly when they meet again. --- 5 Stars

Embraceable You - For the third part, Dru was raised by an order of nuns after her Gypsy parents’ arrest. The town condemned her for her heritage and for her parents’ mistakes. Now she’s a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner who stumbled on a story and a trial of a lifetime. She goes to the reunion to accept an award. Rory, the local sheriff, acts as her bodyguard but becomes something much more… --- 4 Stars

While I liked this book, I found the beginning a little difficult to get into. There were just so many main and side characters, not enough tag lines, and sometimes I didn’t know who was talking or who’s POV I was reading in. Once I figured out all the characters and who was who, I enjoyed the story much more. There were a few typos and formatting issues, as well, but not enough to take me out of the story.
For anyone who wants a good read about putting your old bully in their place, check this book out! 

The book overall – 4 Stars
