Shot by an arrow and abandoned, Hetty finds herself at the mercy of an unlikely quartet of misfits. A prostitute aka mail-order bride, two children pretending to be hers, and a wise Chinese man full of advice from Confucius and they are all on the way to meet up with Karl Norwood-poor man didn’t know what was about to hit him.  Hetty didn’t realize the fun was just getting started.  When Karl’s “sweet” mail-order bride finds karma is swift and just and plummets off the side of a cliff, Hetty must make a decision that will save two orphans and maybe even herself, all she must do is step in and become a widowed mother of two. How hard could it be?

Right away Karl knows something is amiss when he meets up with the group.  First, how could this young lady be the mother of two children, that were obviously older than what the letters had stated.  Furthermore, these children had different fathers and looked nothing like this stunningly beautiful woman.  Not willing to let the beauty walk away, he decides to play their little charade and see how it went, not realizing he might just fall in love along the way.

I stumbled across this book at my favorite used bookstore, and I absolutely fell in love with the characters and the author.  I love it when I find a new author that takes me on a journey through her writing.  From page one I was instantly swept away, becoming more and more involved with the characters and their dilemmas, cheering them on when they stumbled. Watching the “plain” Karl transform into the dashing young man that Hetty couldn’t help to fall in love with.  I can’t wait to buy other books by Joan Johnston, she is an author I would recommend to my friends.

Buy: Mercury Striking (The Scorpius Syndrome)

Lynne Harmony has had her fair share of fear, pain, and heartache. She’s survived the Scorpius Syndrome only to come out with a glowing blue heart and has been imprisoned, poked and prodded and threatened. The world, at least those that have survived, has gone into survival mode. Shoot first ask questions later and they aren’t about to trust anyone, not even the woman with the blue heart who may just be the only hope the world has left at fighting the disease that destroyed civilization. Stumbling along ruin Lynne gets herself captured by Jax Mercury, the man who has become a legend. Caring for the weak and leading a small army of strong men, Jax is not a man to mess with. With a little give and take it doesn’t take long for the two to find out that they need each other to survive and with a little patience they find that there can be more than just heartache in all the mess and death. It is possible to find love.

There was never a dull moment in this action packed book. Amidst a world of chaos, the romance and chemistry jumped off the pages. I felt the raw pain when another survivor would succumb to the horrible disease. Rebecca Zanetti does an amazing job creating strong characters and a great plot that left me excited to read the next book in the series.

 Miss Demeanor Suspense Series

Four female cops are tired of not being promoted and the lack of excitement that comes from being an officer in a small town.  After they meet online in a group called “Lady Cops” they decide to start a private investigation business called “Miss Demeanor Private Detective Agency” in Seattle.  In this series we follow four strong women as they fight drug rings, murderers, kidnappers and sex rings in the Emerald City.

P.I. I Love You by Joanne Jaytanie

River Nightingale just watched another promotion pass her up.  She’s closed more cases than anybody in her town, only to watch a man with half the experience who works the least amount of anyone take the job.  Enough is enough and when the possibility of joining her new friends as a private investigator in Seattle becomes a reality she calls her uncle, pulls a few strings, and makes the move to The City of Flowers.  With their new business up and running a new client comes in asking for help with finding who murdered his parents and tracking down a long lost half sister that had been secretly adopted.  Unfortunately for River, tracking down the murderer means working with bossy and prideful Homicide Detective, Gage Hamlin and reopening his case.  He hates nosy private investigators and she hates smug arrogant policeman that look down their noses at woman cops.  They need to put their differences aside and work together to solve the cases, because it seems like someone else is on their heels ready to do whatever it takes, even kill a cop, in order to hide the truth.  This is an amazing story, the suspense dripped from each page and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.  This is the first time I’ve read a book from Joanne Jaytanie, and I loved it!

BARE by Angela Ford

Shay Brooks has found that she’s hit that invisible glass ceiling, especially because she’s a female cop in a small town and not taken seriously by her partners.  Agreeing to start up the “Miss Demeanor Private Detective Agency” with her friends in Seattle, she is excited to kiss her town good bye.  Her first case has her taking an undercover job as a waitress in a gentleman’s club, where she’s trying to “save” the client’s daughter from the club’s owner.  Once inside BARE, Shay finds out not everyone is who they say they are.  I enjoyed Shay’s story and was impressed with the strong characters that were portrayed in a short amount of time.  Angela did a great job setting the scene and creating a plot that was suspenseful from the beginning.

Choreographed Crime by Jackie Marilla

When Maile Kuhiwinui decided to leave Hawaii, she didn’t realize how homesick she would be.  It seemed like a great idea at the time, join a group of female officers, and become a private investigator in Seattle, leaving behind the small town cop mentality in her review mirror.  However, she feels like she’s not being productive as she sits back and watches the other women close their cases.  Trying to get rid of her homesickness by comforting herself with food from back home, Maile meets Kalama Haleamau and realizes that Seattle might not be so bad.  However, when a murder case is brought to Maile, she finds that Kalama is right in the middle of it and he might just be a suspect.  This was not my favorite story in the book.  Maile seemed very weak and didn’t seem have to have the mentality of a cop.  She cried a lot and it frustrated me, I was happy to see this story over.  I feel like Maile is the weak link in the series.

Golden Ribbons by Lauren Marie

Cassie Holmes is spunky and tough, she doesn’t take no for an answer and she isn’t scared to tell a complete stranger- who she lovingly refers to as “Sasquatch”- to take a hike.  As tough as she is, she has a soft spot for the client who has taken what money she has to secure the aid of the private investigator.  The client’s daughter, Cami, is a fourteen year old girl who ran away and has found herself victim of a child prostitution ring, and it’s up to Cassie and Sasquatch, aka Jack Donovan to help Cami and the other girls find safety.  I like Cassie, she was my favorite character, and she is sassy and has a no-nonsense personality.  She knows what has to be done and doesn’t stop to question it.  I enjoyed Lauren Marie’s writing and will be reading more of her books in the future.

I did love this series, although I could have been happier without reading Maile’s story.  The women in this story must step aside and learn to let a man help them even after they have played hardball with the men back in their small towns.  This is about taking a big jump and changing your life when you find yourself in a rut. I will read more from Joanne Jaytanie, Angela Ford, and Lauren Marie.
