GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Hammer GirlNovember 5, 2018GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Her name is Ellie and she makes a living by working with her partner buying and flipping houses. With the help of a few employees and contracted help, they have built quite a reputation. Her ability to handle a hammer is second to none. She also writes the Hammer Girl Blog and shares tips with those who are interested. I suppose a story about flipping houses might not hold the interest of very many people but not to worry. Following the apparent murder of her sister, Ellie has more on her plate than she can handle as it seems that her own life is in jeopardy as well. The tension mounts as Ellie and Coast Guard Investigator Grayson Bradshaw seek to figure out what happened. Add in a stolen shipment of cocaine and the potential threat of an EMP bomb and suddenly the story reaches a new excitement level. When the story seems focused on the work going on in a house Ellie and her partner are renovating, I think the author is giving us an opportunity to catch a fresh breath in preparation for the excitement to ramp up still more. I enjoyed the suspense immensely.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A delightfully page-turning, shoulder-checking and gasp-out-louding kind of readOctober 8, 2018KavRCanadaGender: femaleShaky sigh -- I won't be looking at black SUVs in the same way any time soon. In fact, I'll be busy throwing myself into bushes and ducking around corners every time I see one from now on because scary things happen when a black SUV rolls by.
But do you think Ellie figured that out in time to save this reader untold angst? Nope -- that girl is one stubborn spitfire who doesn't know what the word 'cautious' means. And 'backing down' isn't in her vocabulary either. I screamed myself hoarse trying to guide her safely through to 'the end'. But she's tone deaf when it comes to directions from the reading gallery. And she doesn't always take directions from Grayson well either. She both annoys and fascinates him and royally messes up his well-ordered world. Love the great chemistry between these two! It's as charged as the suspense!
And there's an urgency to absolutely everything in this story. From the tense mysteries (yes, there's more than one) to the menacing villains (again, note the plural!) to the fast-paced action scenes. Not to mention the body count! And the specter of danger looming over them all! A delightfully page-turning, shoulder-checking and gasp-out-louding kind of a read.
rkfall4 Stars Out Of 5The House at Saltwater PointSeptember 27, 2018rkfallThe House at Saltwater Point by Colleen Coble is an adventurous and crazy read. Colleen has a way about her writing that is intense and gripping. She thinks through scenarios well and brings realistic plots to life. She adds details that are bought out in a "Murder She Wrote" kind of way. If you love mystery and murder books and not so much the lighthearted Hallmark type, you'll want to check this one out and move on to all her others.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Deana4 Stars Out Of 5intriguing StorySeptember 14, 2018DeanaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ellie is a crackerjack at fixing up houses and making a profit after selling them. I sure would like to have her talent. I loved her nickname of "Hammer -Girl." The story is very intriguing and I enjoyed trying to figure out what happened to Ellie's sister Mackenzie. I would like to have known a bit more about Mackenzie and didn't quite relate to her at times.
Ellie doesn't believe the rumors about her sister stealing cocaine. When Mackenzie turns up missing the hunt is on for the truth. I liked how the author gave us a bit of background on Ellie and why she has a hard time believing in herself. Grayson is a bigger than life person with his size and fierce protectiveness. He wants to help Ellie but he also has a job to do. Will he help find Mackenzie and prove her innocence?
The story is unpredictable and really kept me on my toes. I wasn't sure who to believe at times which made the story so good. The author has an ability to take a plot and expand it with explosive details that keep you guessing. There is danger all around Ellie and Grayson. The terrorist part in the story was unexpected and made the book even harder to put down. It's funny what some people will do for power and money. Don't miss this intense action packed story that will have you on the edge of your seat.
I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Guild. The review is my own opinion.
