I started reading Heartless a couple of days ago because I have a blog tour review for the second book in the series coming up. Actually, I thought my review was for tomorrow but I realized that it is for the end of July so I stopped reading this book to focus fully on my other book. This is was a fantasy romance between a fae and a mortal gamer girl and I’m captivated by both the story and the romance and I can’t wait to read more.
I’m almost done with The Darkest Secret and this was a way darker book than I thought it would be. We are following used to be married to each other FBI agents who special in bizarre crimes. Our heroine escaped from the Nursery Rhyme Killer when she was a teenager and has spent the entirety of her career trying to bring him down. She is reunited with her ex and his FBI team as they work to finally solve the NRK cases. Harlequin’s Love Inspired line means it is a Christian based suspense novel and she is definitely throwing a lot of both at the reader. After reading a couple of chapters of this I went on Pango Books and bought a small stack of Love Inspired romances including another one by Jessica Patch.

My Killer Vacation was a 4.5 star read for me. I LOVED the romance and I swooned over how incredibly soft and sweet Myles was with Taylor. However, I wish the book had taken place over at least a couple of weeks and not a couple of days so they had more time to actually develop a relationship beyond stolen moments here or there. I also wasn’t a fan of the epilogue (no surprise there) but I always read them hoping it will be one that I love.

Detective Anjelica Henley confronts a series of ritualistic murders in this heart-pounding thriller about race, power and the corrupt institutions that threaten us
When Detective Anjelica Henley is called to investigate the murder of a popular preacher in his own church, she discovers a second victim, tortured and tied to a bed in an upstairs room. He is alive, but barely, and his body shows signs of a dark religious ritual.
With a revolving list of suspects and the media spotlight firmly on her, Henley is left with more questions than answers as she attempts to untangle both crimes. But when another body appears, the case takes on a new urgency. Unless she can apprehend the killer, the next victim may just be Henley herself.
Drawing on her experiences as a criminal attorney, Nadine Matheson deftly explores issues of race, class and justice through an action-packed story that will hold you captive until the last terrifying page.
