Genre: Contemporary romance, suspense, second-chance romance
This is the sixth book in the Elkridge series. It’s also my absolute favorite. This is a beautiful second chance love story. The characters are, as always amazingly real and the story is extremely well written. FINALLY! I know who the killer is! Yay! I laughed a bit, teared up (keep tissues handy!) and fell in love while reading this book. I love this town and these people so much. Lyz Kelley has a way of writing that makes me feel like I’m part of the story and the town. I am so excited to see what she writes after this! I definitely recommend this entire series to EVERYONE!
Title: Watch Over
Author: Amy Reece
Genre: Contemporary romance, romantic suspense
Stars: 4 🛍🛍🛍🛍
This is my first book by Amy Reece. She wrote a fantastic story! The characters had depth and personality that made them more real and the story was well written. I thought Melanie and Finn meeting through the cat was cute and funny. The story itself mostly kept me on the edge of my chair with the twists and turns. Overall it was a great read and I am excited for the next book!

Title: Run (Lakefield Book 1)
Author: Jennifer Vester
Genre: romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense
I really enjoyed this book. Liv was finally living her life with her best friend Julia after a horrible and traumatic college relationship. She makes a stop to eat dinner and sees Aiden sitting in a business meeting at the table across from her. The attraction is instant for both. Of course Liv decides to run from it. Aiden chases her down to return her forgotten phone. And so the hilarious and suspenseful story starts. Liv and Aiden were perfect. They were absolutely perfect for each other. Aiden is take charge and in control of every aspect of his life. Liv is a book worm, foul mothed, crazy quirky lady. She was always pushing his limits and the banter back and forth is hilarious. I had quite a few laugh out loud moments. The very real danger Liv was in from her stalker had me turning pages to see what would happen next. The story was very well written and the side characters were amazing and so funny at time. I finished this story very quickly. I couldn’t put it down (even while at work)! Definitely 5 stars and I can’t wait to start on Julia’s book!
Title: Only The Pretty Ones
Author: Karen M Bryson
Genre: dark, suspense, romance, thriller, crime drama
Only The Pretty Ones is the first book in the Angry Girl Crime Stories series. It can be read as a standalone or part of the series. This is my first book by Karen M Bryson. I absolutely enjoyed every second of reading this book! It’s full of drama, romance, and is dark and suspenseful. It took me on a roller coaster ride of twists and turns. The story is very well written and the characters are relatable and real. I was sucked in from the beginning and the story wouldn’t let me go! I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series!
