All the Dead Girls by Rita Herron




Publisher's Description

When a violent storm hits Graveyard Falls, it unearths the unimaginable: skeletons of teenage girls, each dressed in white and holding a candle. It’s clear to FBI agent Beth Fields that this is the work of a long-standing killer—but could it be the one she escaped years ago? She has no memory of the man who held her captive and murdered her friend. But even though someone was jailed for the crime, she’s always feared that the real killer is still out there…waiting and watching.

Ian Kimball never believed his stepfather was guilty of Beth’s kidnapping or the slaying of two local girls. Now Graveyard Falls’s sheriff, he’s determined to catch the true perpetrator. And when more young women go missing, he realizes he needs Beth’s help. She is nothing like Ian expected, and everything he desires. But if they have any hope of finally ending the killer’s reign of terror, Beth an Ian will need to put everything aside, including their past, their mistrust, and their growing attraction.

My review:

This is the third book of Graveyard Falls series. I haven't read the first two books but this book can definitely be read as a standalone. This is the first book I've read by Rita Herron and I really enjoyed it. The characters were fairly well developed and well-written. Although the character of FBI agent Beth Fields was a little weaker than I would have liked for an agent. The book has suspense and a bit of romance. The romance between the two main characters could have been developed a bit more. I didn't really feel the chemistry between the two but that wasn't a deal breaker for me and don't really impact my enjoyment of the book because I really enjoyed it.

Overall this is a good book. It kept me guessing all the way though as to who was responsible for the ghastly murders. I will definitely be reading the first two books of this series and future books by Ms. Herron.

Girl Number One






Author: Jane Holland
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer

Eleanor (Ellie) Blackwood’s mother was murdered eighteen years ago but the murderer was never caught. Ellie was only a six year old child when she witnessed her mother being murderer. She saw the killer but because of the sheer shock of what she witnessed she blocked out the image of the killer, all she remembered were the white runners he was wearing. 

On the anniversary of her mother’s death Eleanor went for her usual run and went to the exact spot her mother was killed. What she discovered was a gruesome find – another woman’s dead body. The police searched the area but there was no body. The police thought she was just emotionally distraught and was hallucinating. Was Ellie losing her mind and imagining it because of the grief she still lived with? No, she wasn’t losing her mind. She wasn’t going to give up finding the truth and finding the body.  

I read this book in just a few hours, couldn’t put it down! This was the first book I’ve read by Jane Holland and I can tell you it won’t be the last one. There was mystery, a little romance thrown in and a lot of murder. It was a great book, a page turner!

Dirty Little Lies 




Author: Lora Leigh
Publisher: St. Martin’s Press
Series: A Men of Summer Novel #3


Description:

The Heart has its Secrets. Zack Richards knows he’s asking for trouble. Trying to protect a member of the notorious Maddox family could get a man killed- even a battle-scarred, muscle-ripped alpha like Zack. But the woman who has captured his wildest fantasies is nothing like the rest of her power-hungry clan. She’s innocent, beautiful, and has quickly become the one shining light in his dark, desperate world. The only woman worth fighting for…and dying for… 

But Passion Never Lies. Her name is Grace Maddox- and everybody knows that she is a marked woman. Targeted for her family’s sins and hunted like a wild animal, grace has no choice but to accept Zack’s protection. In his arms, she finally feels safe. In his eyes, she sees an insatiable desire that mirrors her own. But the truth is dangerous- and could end up tearing them apart. Will surrendering to Zack end up being the biggest mistake of Grace’s life?

My Review:

This is the third book in the Men of Summer series. This is the story of Zack Richards & Grace Maddox. Grace and Zack have lusted after each other for many, many years. Zack has kept his distance from Grace until it is discovered that she is in danger of being killed most likely by one of her kin. Zack takes Grace to his home to protect her and as much as Grace vows not to fall for him again, the chemistry is too much and she surrenders herself to him. Zack has many secrets he doesn’t want Grace to discover because he thinks it will destroy her. Will Grace be able to trust Zack once the secrets are out in the open? Will Grace finally be able to find peace?  

I love Lora Leigh’s work. There has not been one of Ms. Leigh’s books that I have read and not enjoyed, and this one is no exception. Her writing is superb!

This book has everything you can want from a good book – lies and deceit, suspense, passion and hot, hot sex. Grace is not a super strong woman but neither is she weak, she does have her strengths and Zack well, as much as many out there wouldn’t be crazy about his macho type character I really liked him. Not enough could be said about the sizzling sex between the two. Did I mention hot already? 

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and there wasn’t any part where I felt like it dragged on at all. This book was intriguing, suspenseful and sizzling!

My Review


I’m rating this book a 2.5 out of 5.

There were many secrets poor Rosemary had no clue about that once she found out about shed some light on why there was so much strain between her and her estranged father. Rosemary has so much going on in her life, from infancy to adulthood that it’s surprising that she handles some things better than I would have.

The story started off well and it has a fairly good storyline. It was an easy read but the pace was a little slow at times but picked up again. I found certain parts a little hard to believe even for a work of fiction.

Overall it’s not a horrible book. There is a cliffhanger and I’m still interested in reading the next one in the series to find out how it all ends.
