Whatcha Readin’ Wednesdays!

Happy Wednesday, everybody! I don’t know about you, but I am sure enjoying the increase in temperatures these days! I have another book for you today from Lynette Eason, called Always Watching. I am so enjoying her stories and writing style. As I have now read the first two of four books in the series, I am reminded of how much I enjoy reading suspense and mystery books. I was thinking the other day that back when I began reading the young adult books in grade school, I always picked out mysteries. I hadn’t thought about that in so long. Over the past few years, I have been reading more chick lit, love stories, self-help and cookbooks! But now that I’ve been reading author Eason’s books, I forgot how much I enjoy a good mystery/suspense!

On with the book…

This book is number one in the Elite Guardians series. Not sure if you’ll catch it, but I had just finished number two and posted about that over here before I gave you the review for book number one! Ooops!  I’m also excited that number three is sitting on the pile to read that I just got a couple of weeks ago. Oh, oh – number four was just released last week for pre-order. Oh yeah – it’s sitting in my Amazon cart waiting to receive the email that it has shipped sometime in July!!!

In Always Watching, we begin at a charity function with a person watching who was also watch her as well. Who was she, why was she glaring at her? Then she noticed. It was because of who she was with. She was more intrigued with the “man of the hour” getting the award and she realized the other woman was not happy that she was the person on his arm for the evening, not her. The end of the first chapter states that the woman who is the date for the man, had killed for him before.

WHAT?

So, of course…you must read on. Isn’t that what makes a good suspense novel? You have to find out why she killed for him and will she be killing for him tonight? Would she kill the elegantly dressed lady standing across the room glaring at her this evening?

As we continue through the book, we begin to meet the ladies of this bodyguard agency. Where most people would raise their eyebrows at an all women bodyguard agency, there were many in there area that would use nobody else.

With the strange stalker consuming the life of the popular radio psychiatrist, Wade Savage, the poison darts, bomb threats and other suspicious activity, you cannot put the book down until you see what happens to poor Mr. Savage. There is a lot of time spent with him by several of the bodyguards and he just might become smitten with one of them!

I loved this book (and number 2!) and I recommend it if you love a good suspense read! If you have read it or will be reading it, let me know if you figured out the ending before you got there! You may be surprised!

What on your reading table right now? I’d love to know what your reading. I’m always looking for good books to read and add to my list. Let me know in the comment section!

Happy Reading!

It’s Wednesday again, and time to share the next book from my reading corner! This week I read another book for a Launch Team. This particular book comes from an author whom I’ve never heard of before, but was asked to apply for the team. I was intrigued by the description of the book, so raised my hand to read the book!  The book is:  Life After by Katie Ganshert. Although this was the first time reading from this author, I can assure you, I’ll be reading more of her work! I really enjoyed the book.

As I read through this book, I had to keep reminding myself that it was fiction. Katie’s ability to write kept having me think she was sharing about an actual current event. The descriptions were so vivid and real, it caught me off guard!

The book is about Autumn Manning and her life from this past year. From “the event” that changed everything last year for her and so many people, to the current day event for all to remember the tragedy, this book pulls you into the story with such real and personal emotions. Though it was 337 pages, I finished it in one evening. I just couldn’t put it down!

The way the author shows how each of the families of the victims show their grief, their willingness to have their family member remember or not, really shows the human side of grief. And the truth that grief is not a one size fits all emotion. I have to say, I really felt I knew how the story was going to progress for Autumn, Reese and Paul but boy was I wrong. Dead wrong. This story goes to show you that not everything that goes on publicly is what it actually is privately! What we choose to assume is the truth about a person or family, may be the total opposite of what we believe.

I enjoyed this book very much and I will be checking into Katie Ganshert’s other books for sure!

If you’d like to order this book for yourself, it is available April 18, 2017 and can be ordered by clicking the link to Amazon below:

This week I’m sharing about a great book which is the beginning of a series. The book is:  Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren, part of the Montana Rescue Series. I’m really excited, too, because I pre-ordered book #2 in the series way back in November and just received an email yesterday that it is on the way! Woohoo! I enjoyed book #1 so much, I had to order #2 to follow along with the characters, right?

And making it even more fun was meeting Susan May Warren when I was back in Ohio in October! Even more exciting for me is that she is my writing coach through her online course I’m taking through Novel Academy! I’ve read many of her books in 2016 and I will be sharing them throughout this year.

But back to Wild Montana Skies!

First I’d like to say that what I love most about Susie’s writings is that she makes you feel like you are watching a movie! Her descriptives are in full color. You can see the scenes happening as you read along. That’s the biggest reason I am drawn to her books. That and the fact that she gets you so involved with the characters, you can’t put the book down! You just have to see what is going to happen next! That’s a good book!

The book starts with Kacey returning to her hometown. She wanted badly to quietly cruise in without any fanfare. Wanted to stop for a bite to eat after the long drive in. Hoping to stop at the Gray Pony, a hometown favorite for the best ribs and homemade root beer. Also hoping, nobody would recognize her since she’d been gone a while.

Of course, that’s not going to happen, right? Just when you wish you could slide in and be unseen, something happens and you’ve been found out!

As the story unfolds, old loves meet up, old memories are stirred, danger for many of the towns’ people grows and some split decisions need to be made. On many fronts.

I couldn’t put the book down (as usual with Susie’s books!) and read it over a 24 hour period. It kept my attention and of course I had to see what happened with Kacey and Audrey and Ben and Chet and Kacey’s parents…

If you’re looking for a new fiction series to start, I would recommend this one for sure!

Enjoy!
