Imposter: The Protectors Series Book One by Karen Fenech, This was a good fast paced suspense that kept you in the dark on who the bad guy was until the author chose to reveal it. Eve Collins life hasn’t gone the way she expected it to. After losing her child in an accident then her marriage imploding she also lost her job with the LAPD as a forensic specialist. She is now a chemist that makes perfumes along with her partner, Richard. What she doesn’t realize is that Richard has created a deadly chemical weapon and is selling it to the highest bidder. When he dies while driving them to a conference, Eve’s life is changed when she is accused by the CIA of being his accomplice. She is taken into custody by a CIA Operative named John Burke. John is pretty rude for the first half of the book thinking Eve is a traitor and terrorist and doesn’t believe a word she says when she tries to tell him she’s innocent. But after attempts are made on her life he realizes she has been set up and the two of them have to work together to figure out whom the real partner was.

Dark Tide Rising by Kristin Miller, An eerie murder mystery. From the opening haunting death your taken on a mysterious and at times supernatural search for the killer. Emily McAllister dreamed of her best friend’s death in a watery cave but when the police determine it’s an accidental drowning she goes to the police to try and convince them it was a murder without sounding like a crazy person. But what she gets is a straight laced police sergeant Mark Thurgood who is still haunted by the death of his partner in the same sea that took the victims life. Even though I figured out early on who the killer was it was still a great plot leading up to the ending that threw in a twist.

Big Bad Wolf by Gennita Low. Jaymee Barrow is running her father’s roofing business until she can get it out of the red out of a sense of guilt over a mistake she made eight years ago. When a stranger walks onto the job site looking for work she know’s he isn’t who he says he is but give him the job. Nick (Killian) Langley is a Covert operative who’s hiding out after someone tried to kill him. As he doesn’t know who to trust and has no money he decides to find some labor work for a couple months so he can find out who put a hit out on him. Little disjointed at times maybe because it was an earlier work from the author.

Found Wanting by Joyce Lamb Found Wanting by Joyce Lamb. This was a completely engrossing suspense from start to finish. Alaina Chancellor has been running from the man who fathered her child 14 years ago. As the book starts she finds out the FBI has found her and she makes a run for it to get to her son and get away. What she doesn’t know is a man, Mitch Lane, which her son’s father hired has been watching her for weeks and has every intention of taking the boy back to him. Insert craziness from here on. She is hit by a car, her son is taken, Mitch takes her into custody not believing her lies when she tried to tell him his employer is not who he thinks he is. As the story progresses we find out the truth and the amount of betrayal by so many people is staggering. Mitch’s character goes through quite the transformation from who he was in the beginning as he is a very bitter and emotionally shut off man due to betrayals of his own. Really liked this one..

High Tide by Maureen A. Miller. The visuals the author gives during the course of this book of Oahu - Hawaii are nothing short of stunning. From the moment the two main characters meet on the beach you are swept away. There is so much more than just the beautiful location. Even though Nick and Briana meet as strangers on the beach and are instantly attracted to each other once they find out who the other is that’s nipped in the bud. Nick McCord is a U.S. Geological Survey expert and he is on that beach because strange things have been happening off the coast and he concludes that it has to do with the developer of a new housing development being built right off the shoreline. Briana Holt is the lead contractor for the new development called Manale Palms. She works hard to make it in a position that many women don’t hold and she isn’t going to let some guy even if he’s sexy as all get out from the USGS threaten her project. The attraction between these two even though they are on opposite side in the beginning was powerful – even as a reader you could feel the heat between these two. Both being stubborn continue to try to find out what is causing all the anomalies which ends up putting them in danger. This book just flowed from beginning to end – stunning location, hot romance, lots of peril and great secondary characters. Highly recommend it. ( )
