New Release: The Total Package by Stephanie Evanovich

51APqGOe9kL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Synopsis: 

Heartthrob star quarterback Tyson Palmer has it all: a million-dollar arm, a winning season and the promise of a Superbowl ring. But more importantly, football’s biggest star is the ultimate comeback kid. After an addiction to painkillers nearly derailed his career, Tyson got sober and went from zero to hero in the eyes of the public.

But one person remains unconvinced: Dani Carr, a sports commentator with high ratings and following of her own.

Dani can’t forgive Tyson’s transgressions or forget a single passionate night with him back in college. To make things worse, Tyson doesn’t realize that the bombshell with huge ratings is the cute co-ed whose heart he once broke.

But can a sports journalist trying to claw her way to the top and a quarterback who knows all about rock bottom make it to the Super Bowl without destroying each other? And what will happen when Tyson—riding high now that he’s revived his career—realizes he needs to make an even more important comeback with Dani? Can he use his million-dollar moves to get past her defenses—or will she sideline him for good?

51-Hr60ZUnL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_Synopsis: 

Faded photographs of a glamorous couple in postwar Europe. Old letters hinting of tragic loss. And a breathtaking array of magnificent jewelry, spectacular stones in exquisite settings. These are the contents of a safe-deposit box long abandoned in a New York City bank. If no heir can be identified, the jewelry will be auctioned. But who was the woman who left such a fortune and no will?

Two people, drawn together by chance, begin to unravel the mystery. Jane Willoughby is a law clerk at the surrogate’s court and Phillip Lawton a fine arts expert for Christie’s auction house. They are simply doing their jobs when they come to the bank to inspect the contents of the box. But for both Jane and Phillip the search turns personal—and their efforts to reconstruct an enigmatic life will lead from New York to London and Paris, to Rome and Naples, and a series of stunning revelations.

Eighteen-year-old Marguerite Pearson left America with a broken heart in the shadow of World War II. She found a new life in Europe but forever mourned what she left behind. As the truth about Marguerite’s extraordinary history—her forbidden love affair and her family’s treachery—is slowly revealed, more people are drawn into the puzzle that Jane and Phillip have pieced together, and one among them will inherit the most unexpected gift of all.

61NAI0l8yNL._SX373_BO1,204,203,200_Synopsis:

Texas transplant Pru Parke has put down roots in England, but she never dreamed she’d live in a grand place such as Greenoak. When her former employers offer Pru and her new husband, former Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Pearse, the use of their nineteenth-century estate while they’re away for a year, she jumps at the chance. Sweetening the deal is the prospect of further bonding with her long-lost brother, Simon, who happens to be Greenoak’s head gardener. But the majestic manor has at least one skeleton in its closet—or, rather, its garden.

Working on renovations to the extensive grounds, siblings Pru and Simon squabble about everything from boxwood to bay hedges. But when the removal of a half-dead tree turns up the wreckage of a World War II–era German fighter plane and a pile of bones, the arguments stop. That is, until a rival from Simon’s past pays a surprise visit and creates even more upheaval. It’s suddenly clear someone is unhappy their secrets have been unearthed. Still, Pru’s not about to sit back and let Simon take the fall for the dirty deed without a fight.

New Release: The Marriage of Mary Russell by Laurie R. King

51NU0PhIXxL._SX374_BO1,204,203,200_Synopsis:

Though she cannot entirely discount the effects of the head injuries they were both suffering at the time, Mary Russell is delighted by Sherlock Holmes’s proposal of marriage. After all, they have become partners-in-crime, and she has recently come into her inheritance: what remains but to confirm the union with her mentor-turned-partner through a piece of paper? Russell’s pragmatic side tells her to head straight to the registry office—until Holmes surprises her with a sentimental wish to be married in the chapel of his ancestral manor. There’s just the small issue of ownership: the house is not exactly his, and he is most definitely not welcome there. Of course, such obstacles have never deterred Sherlock Holmes before, and they certainly won’t keep him from concocting an elaborate scheme to evade angry dogs and armed butlers—all in the name of wedded bliss.

Review: A Small Indiscretion by Jan Ellison

410mS5qgVEL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_Synopsis:

At nineteen, Annie Black trades a bleak future in a washed-out California town for a London winter of drinking and abandon. Twenty years later, she is a San Francisco lighting designer and happily married mother of three who has put her reckless youth behind her. Then a photo from that distant winter in Europe arrives inexplicably in her mailbox, and an old obsession is awakened.

Past and present collide, Annie’s marriage falters, and her son takes a car ride that ends with his life hanging in the balance. Now Annie must confront her own transgressions and fight for her family by untangling the mysteries of the turbulent winter that drew an invisible map of her future. Gripping, insightful, and lyrical, A Small Indiscretion announces the arrival of a major new voice in literary suspense as it unfolds a story of denial, passion, forgiveness—and the redemptive power of love.

 

Unknown

My Review: 

First off, I would like to acknowledge the cover on both the paperback and the hardback. I love them both. I absolutely love good covers. Both covers visually depict the edge of suspense quite nicely.

This book is like a story within in a story. Day to day life goes on as the story is being told but the true story about Annie Black’s past is told via a letter to her son with details about her past that has now collided with the present. I found this unexpected and bold that the author chose this writing style to tell the story. However, I believe that it made the story even more suspenseful. It’s quite unique and I like that! At first, I wasn’t sure that I was going to like it but as the story progressed there was really no better way to tell it. Annie needed to tell her story and who else knows it better than her. She wanted to thoroughly explain to her son what happened decades ago and how a small indiscretion later changed life as he knew it in a major way. I didn’t care for the sex scenes written in this letter because who really gives their child those explicit details?!

I thoroughly enjoyed how the story jumps back and forth, between the past and the present. I found the transitions between the time periods smooth and those transitions also provided another suspenseful element that kept me wanting more. I devoured the details and enjoyed deciphering between which were important and which weren’t.

Blog Tour: The Last Night by Heather Kirchhoff

51JXrgScaYL._SX310_BO1,204,203,200_

Synopsis: 

After Sarah Hill’s boyfriend dies, everything changes. Caught up in her grief and desire to see him again, Sarah is challenged in moving on.

Then one day her reality comes crashing down all around her, pushing Sarah to the edge…

From Heather Kirchhoff:

I wrote The Last Night hoping to inspire someone to keep going, to never give up no matter what. It hurts being bullied, or losing someone. Sarah goes through a lot in my book. It tests her so much.

No one should have to go through being bullied, or losing someone they’re close to without knowing why. They shouldn’t question things that was stable.

The Last Night is emotional, that is very true. I felt like I needed to write Sarah’s story. I wanted to show people that they’re not alone.

Sometimes things happen within the same timeframe. It’s like a line of dominoes. One thing happens, and then all of a sudden you’re in a whirlwind. It’s something you can’t stop. The only choice you have is to go with it. Trust me, that can be difficult to do, especially if you are just being dragged behind.
