Redemption Lost

About the book: Christy has tried for years to forget the harrowing Washington, D.C., experiences that launched her into an unlikely spy career—especially since it jeopardized her friendship with Marybeth. But when Marybeth begs her to help find a lost friend, Christy sees it as an opportunity for redemption. 

Soon they discover there’s much more going on than a simple kidnapping. When the lost friend turns up dead and another acquaintance disappears, Christy questions how far she's willing to go for the sake of friendship, and whether it's worth becoming the murderer's next target.

My review: I LOVE these Christy books! I love that Christy has a way with getting herself into trouble. But she's almost always able to get herself and those around her out of trouble as well, even if it isn't easy. This book is a little bit of an exception, Christy finds herself in a situation that she can't escape from, but luckily, with a little help from some friends things work out.

I really loved that we see Marybeth in this one, we not only see her, but we get to see what she thinks and feels. I love that Marybeth is able to show her true feelings about what happened in Watched when they saw a murder happen, and her resentment of Christy because of what Christy has become because of that whole experience. 

Christy's accomplices at division are, as always, amazing. I love how Ace can get into any one's programs or do pretty much anything techie. Jeremy is always great at getting into any situation that he needs to, I loved how hard he worked in this one to help Christy. Haluis doesn't figure as prominently in this story, but he's great as well.

One thing I noticed about Christy in this one is her desire to always have her friends get out of the situation, even if she doesn't. She made a mistake or two in this one that cost her, but she didn't blame that on anyone else and she was always grateful for whatever help she was given. I love Christy even more after reading this one! 

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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 …

Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. 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&…
