A short review to update challenges

 

I am a big fan of Brenda Novak. She writes contemporary romance / romantic suspense with great characters and some plot beyond romance. I was seriously in suspense, constantly worried for Sadie and then also Dawson. In this case, some of the “evil” characters were a bit cliche but at least not completely. Dawson and Sadie had more than ordinary difficulties in their lives, but I loved their compassion and efforts to improve situations for others as well as themselves.

Veronica Worthington did a lovely job with the narration. It kept me in the story and yet still differentiated the people with appropriate accents. Her voice was clear and easy to understand providing comfortable listening. This series is my first listen to her and I will look for her in the future.

This could be read as a stand alone, but I’m willing to bet the whole series is great. It helps me to have the background on the town and some of the other characters. I’ve already put the next in the Silver Springs series  Until You Loved Me on hold at the library.

I can't really remember any time when I wasn't reading. I LOVE books and what they give me. It's an opportunity to learn new things, see new places,live different emotions in a "safe" way. It lets me live in a new world.

I read all types of books but my favorites are urban fantasy and romantic suspense.I like some romance and some action / adventure / mystery in everything.I like sex in my books but please, only between TWO people.Intimate conversation is equally important to the sex in a book.It lets me see the characters.The other thing I enjoy is humor.

  1. Nice review! I really liked this one, too!

    I’m normally a stickler for reading a series in order but this is a series where the books truly can standalone. The first book provides the backbone for the town but other than that, there isn’t a lot of character continuity. I’ve read/listened to the whole series and am enjoying all.
