Reviews: Heirlooms, Hideouts, and Cold Pursuit

Blurbs: In Kristi Ann Hunter’s “Legacy of Love,” Sarah Gooding never suspected returning a brooch to an elderly woman would lead to a job . . . and introduce her to the woman’s grandson, a man far above her station.

In Karen Witemeyer’s “Gift of the Heart,” widow Ruth Albright uses the family brooch as collateral for a loan from the local banker. But the more she comes to know the man behind the stern businessman, the more she hopes for a second chance at love.

In Sarah Loudin Thomas’s “A Shot at Love,” Fleeta Brady’s rough-and-tumble childhood means she prefers hunting to more feminine activities. She never expected her family’s brooch might be how a fellow hunter turns her attention from competition to romance.

In Becky Wade’s “Because of You,” Maddie Winslow has spent years in love with a man whose heart was already spoken for. When a church Christmas project brings them together and she stumbles upon an old family brooch, might it finally be her turn for love?

Review: I loved that one heirloom traversed time to bless four women with love. Each of these stories was well thought out and well written. I enjoyed the idea that the brooch went from mother to daughter in the family. So many times we read about something going to the first son, but this went to a daughter.

Blurb: Cowboy lawmen make the best protectors

A McKade Law novel

Fleeing from her dangerous ex-boyfriend, on-the-run single mother Nicole Dyer takes refuge in a cabin—and is discovered by the ranch owner, Deputy Matt McKade. It’s easy to fall for the handsome lawman and his kind family, but staying at the ranch endangers them all. When everything Nicole loves comes under direct fire, can Matt keep her—and her heart—safe?

Review: A cowboy cop? Tsk… what’s not to love? I’ve read all of Susan Sleeman’s McKade Law Series and many of her other books, and I’ve LOVED every single one. She’s an excellent writer, and this story did not fall short of any of her others. I HIGHLY recommend reading ALL of her books.

Blurb: She’s on the run…

When Whitney Rochester’s brother-in-law kills her sister, Whitney fears for the life of her niece and nephew. She can’t leave them in her murderous brother-in-law’s care so she goes on the run with the children to be sure they’re out of his reach. Or so she thinks until a killer shows up—weapon in hand—at the ski resort where she works and targets her.

But he’s in pursuit.

Former Recon Marine Alex Hamilton is working an undercover investigation at the resort when a crazed man wielding a gun takes out a guy in close proximity to Whitney. Despite not having the support of the Blackwell Tactical team, other than their forensic expert, Samantha Willis, Alex isn’t about to let the shooter harm Whitney or anyone else. When a blinding snowstorm triggers avalanches in the area, it’s too dangerous for the police to reach the secluded resort to stop the killer. Alex and Sam must protect everyone at the resort while they feverishly work to figure out if Whitney or the victim were the intended target. As Alex and Whitney grow close and the killer strikes again, Alex has to find and take down this madman, even if it means risking his own life.

Review: Goodness. Another GREAT book by Susan Sleeman. I didn’t know the answer to the problem until she told me. LOL Of course, I usually spend very little time trying to figure it out and just enjoy the story. And WHAT a story it was. LOVED every single page. The chemistry. The denial. The suspense. *sigh* 🙂

I received all three of the above books from the author/publisher for the purpose of review. All reviews are my honest opinion.

Happy reading,
