Out Lawyered

About the book: Saxon Cartwright is a small-town lawyer driven by a deeply personal need to see justice served. Years ago, the incompetence of a prosecuting attorney allowed his sister's murderer to walk free. Now, Saxon is faced with the task of prosecuting a case eerily reminiscent of that long-ago trial, and he's determined to make the murderer pay. But there's one person standing in his way: Malcom Glazebrook, a ruthless and experienced defense lawyer whose wealthy clients are paying him handsomely to do whatever it takes to keep their son out of prison.

The case should be open and shut, but a series of shocking murders have claimed the lives of both a juror and a key witness for the prosecution. Now, beautiful elementary school teacher Wyanne Grice—an unwitting observer of the juror's murder—is Saxon's only hope. As they work together to uncover the truth, Saxon and Wyanne are undeniably drawn to one another. But when threats to Wyanne's life escalate, it seems that someone might go to dangerous lengths to keep her from talking. With the court date fast approaching, will Saxon be able to out-lawyer his courtroom nemesis, win the case, and steal a certain woman's heart?

My review: I love the way this author writes. I love that his books are usually full of danger and craziness, but there's also a love story tangled up in there somewhere. I also like that the whole point of view in a lot of his books is the male point of view. That makes his books just a little different and a little more fun. This book was no different.

I like Saxon. The first chapter left me stunned and wanting to know just what Saxon would do with his life and how he handled the loss of his dear friends and his sister all at once. I loved his determination to become a prosecutor and to make sure that nothing like that happened to anyone on his watch. I really loved the way he was so protective of Wyanne after she happened to find the body. He went out of his way to watch out for her and make sure nothing bad would happen to her.

The plot of this one is fast moving. There's plenty of danger both for Saxon and for Wyanne. And also for anyone who had anything to do with this particular case. I will admit that I didn't see the ending coming. The murderer was someone that I never would have guessed even for a minute. I was just as surprised as Saxon and Wyanne when I read the ending of this book!

If you love great suspenseful books with a touch of romance, you'll love this great book! 

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. 

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 …

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&…
