Hearth Fires

Mackenzie Graham is thrilled with her latest assignment for Hearth & Home magazine an article on the storybook homes of California. She's excited for her first interview with Judge and Mrs Wolcott, but when she arrives, there is no one to answer the door. Confused, but willing to take pictures of the outside, she heads around the back of the house where she takes a few pictures before she's grabbed by a large man and hauled before a group of three men. One of the men, the Judge, indicates that there was no appointment made for her with him or his wife. Mackenzie is uncomfortable and opts to leave as soon as the men will allow her to. But she's definitely confused and calls her editor, Allison, as soon as she can. Taking the afternoon off, Mackenzie enjoys a stroll along California's beautiful coast, but returns to find her rental car broken into and her camera bag missing, luckily the camera was with her, not in the bag. Strangely enough, her room at her hotel is broken into that night to, and her laptop is taken. When the police arrive, they indicate that the two events are most likely connected, something that Mackenzie had not even thought of. But when she looks at the pictures on the memory card of her camera, she realizes that she had inadvertently taken pictures of the men in Judge Wolcott's garden and knows that she is in big trouble. It will take great effort on the part of Detective Wade Evans and his brother William Evans to keep her safe from these dangerous men. 

I really enjoyed this book. There is plenty of action, adventure, danger and don't forget romance included in the story line. I really enjoyed the plot. I really liked Mackenzie and her editor Allison was great too, and let's not forget Wade and William, both true gentlemen and caretakers of Mackenzie. This book really has it all, I was up a good chunk of the night reading and trying to figure out just what was going to happen next. You won't want to put it down until the exciting conclusion!

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

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.

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: 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&…
