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.
bookbloggerWestern MichiganAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Another Romantic Suspense by Colleen CobleSeptember 6, 2018bookbloggerWestern MichiganAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4The House at Saltwater Point by Colleen Coble
Ellie Blackmore is loyal to a fault. She just can't believe that her missing sister, Mackenzie, could be responsible for a lost shipment of cocaine. When Grayson Bradshaw, a Coast Guard intelligence officer, is sent in to investigate the missing cocaine shipment, he has a hard time convincing Ellie.
Is it possible that Mac did take the cocaine and then faked her own death? But why would she do that? Both Ellie and Grayson want the truth, but it proves more complicated than either of them expect.
A race against time, a handsome hero and a lovely but self-effacing heroine, a terrorist plot, and a dose of suspense combine to make this book an excellent beach read. The plot moves along at a good pace, but the author manages to develop the characters so they become friends to the reader.
Although the book contains a terrorist plot, readers are not subjected to horrific details. There are themes of forgiveness, love, and loyalty. And of course, the author leaves the ending open enough so that another book may follow.
It was fun to pay another visit to Lavender Tides. Excerpts from Ellie's blog were an added bonus and a nice touch. Colleen's fans and fans of romantic suspense will enjoy this one, and look forward to the sequel. I received a free copy from the Fiction Guild and was not required to post a favorable review.
