Yet another round of quick and easy short reviews helping to clear those non-review books I’ve let back up. I’ve been letting these go too long but we’re almost there! 😊

The Silver LinkThe Silver Link by Gwen Kirkwood

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Silver Link by Gwen Kirkwood is a romance that is set in Scotland. After college Elspeth finds that she’s inherited her family’s estate, Everanlea. Instead of moving to France when her boyfriend asks she returns to Scotland to run the estate. Returning Elspeth finds herself in the middle of an old family feud between her family, the Elliots, and the Armstrongs. I found this one to be one of those it’s alright reads that while it suits to pass the time it’s really not all that memorable but just an OK read.

Flawless Surrender (The Surrender Trilogy, #2)Flawless Surrender by Lori King

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Flawless Surrender by Lori King is the second book of the erotic romance Surrender series. Apparently this series is set in a small town that has a serious lack of woman for all the attractive, hot males to pair up with so Zoey Carson finds herself in a relationship with three brothers when all she’d really wanted was a place to stay when kicked out of her apartment. Zoey’s friend was the star of book one in this series so this one could be read as a standalone with the characters having changed. I was actually surprised this one was better than I thought it would be when picking it up, decent writing and more plot to it than a lot of erotica.

The Shadow Walker (Nergui #1)The Shadow Walker by Michael Walters

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Shadow Walker by Michael Walters and Alex Walters is a dark police thriller that is the first book of the Inspector Nergui series. This one is a bit different to me as it’s set in Mongolia so of course for one that loves to virtually travel through stories I was curious about the setting right away. In the story Inspector Nergui is part of the Mongolian Serious Crime squad and gets the call to come help find a serial killer when mutilated bodies start turning up. Not too bad overall but I did find it could get slow with talking instead of doing in parts leaving this one just one of those so-so Ok reads to me.

The Traveling Man (The Travelers, #1)The Traveling Man by Michael P. King

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The Traveling Man by Michael P. King is the first book of the The Travelers series. This is a rather dark and gritty thriller in which the good guys are the bad guys but end up pursued by the worst guys. Tom and Patty Brown are con artists that find their latest con of selling land to a gangster backfires and they end up with their own partner, Buddy Ray, after them. Didn’t really find much about this one that really drew me in. While there’s action I just didn’t find myself really caring or connecting to the story much, just not my cup of tea I suppose.

Just For This Moment (Wishful, #4)Just For This Moment by Kait Nolan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Just For This Moment by Kait Nolan is the fourth book of the contemporary romance Wishful series. I haven’t read the rest of this series myself but as with most romance series the characters seem to change from book to book so this read fine as a standalone. This story is one of those agree to a fake relationship and it turns into more stories. Myles needs money to save his paper and his way to do that is to unlock and inheritance by getting married. Piper and Myles had an attraction to them and wanted to date but when Piper hears of the situation she offers to marry Myles to help him out. I usually like the fake dating/marriage set ups and this one wasn’t any different, it helped too that they knew one another but just skipped a few steps in the relationship. Not too bad of a story overall.

Return to Love (Willow Valley #1)Return to Love by Christine Kingsley

My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars

Return to Love by Christine Kingsley is the first book of the contemporary romance Willow Valley series. Cassie Powell had made a life for herself and her adopted daughter in Willow Valley when Jack Martin walks back into her life. Cassie and Jack had grown up together and Cassie hadn’t seen him since he left for college with her sister whom she hasn’t spoken to in years. This would be one that I didn’t mine the writing and I wished the story had been a little different to enjoy it more. There’s a reveal concerning the past that I just didn’t see Cassie and Jack together. 2.5 stars overall but I would try this author again.

A Murder Most MacabreA Murder Most Macabre by Edmund Glasby

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

A Murder Most Macabre by Edmund Glasby is a thriller in which Jeremy Lavelle, the leader of Egyptian Society the Order of the True Sphinx, obtains a mummy that he plans to unwrap and study with the group. Instead of an ancient corpse though they find a decapitated new corpse and call in P.I. Adam Blake to help find a killer. The beginning of this one wasn’t too bad and had my curiosity up however it was one of those that just couldn’t hold my attention later on and I just didn’t find myself connecting to the investigation.

Breathe (Sea Breeze #1)Breathe by Abbi Glines

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Breathe by Abbi Glines is the first book of the new adult contemporary romance Sea Breeze series. Sadie White finds herself having to take over her mother’s job and bring in the money to take care of both of them with her mother pregnant. Sadie goes to the mansion her mothers works at to begin work and finds she is working for Jax Stone, a hot teen rocker. Of course this leads to Sadie and Jax being attracted and starting a romance. I actually liked Sadie in this one, couldn’t help but feel sorry she was pushed to be the adult and mother her own mother. It also touches on some very real issues towards the end so I thought this one was good overall.
