Accidental Private Eye

Dallas Rowen has had a string of unbelievably bad luck. His apartment was broken into, and he lost a good chunk of his things, then he lost his job. He's down to his last few dollars, leaning against the wall of a detective agency when he's found by an older woman, Ellen Grady. She doesn't ask who she was, she just utters the words, "I need your help." She just assumed that Dallas was a private eye. He tries to explain, but she tells him that she prayed and the Lord told her that she is going to be able to help her. Ellen's grandson, Jerry Grady was driving his car in a demolition derby when he died. The death was all over the news, but what wasn't reported was that Jerry was killed, not by the demolition derby, but by a bullet to the head. Now Ellen wants Dallas to track down the killer, but things are already getting dangerous. First Ellen, then Dallas are threatened that if they keep poking around into Jerry's death, they'll be next. Dallas knows that he must protect Ellen and her cute and spunky granddaughter, Alexandra, from Jerry's killers, in order to do that he must find the killer. And fast.

I love reading books by Clair Poulson. These books are a bit romantic, but they are completely clean. His plots are always intriguing. I really enjoyed his characters. I also like that they are always set here in Utah. If you're in the mood for a slightly romantic, great mystery this book is for you!

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
