Book Review: Bone Crossed (Mercy Thompson #4) by: Patricia Briggs

Release Date: February 3, 2009
from Ace
Goodreads | Amazon

"By day, Mercy is a car mechanic in the sprawling Tri-Cities of Eastern Washington. By night, she explores her preternatural side. As a shapeshifter with some unique talents, Mercy has often found herself having to maintain a tenuous harmony between the human and the not so human. This time she may get more than she bargained for.

Marsilia, the local Vampire Queen, has learned that Mercy crossed her by slaying a member of her clan—and she's out for blood. But since Mercy is protected from direct reprisal by the werewolf pack (and her close relationship with its sexy Alpha), it won't be Mercy's blood Marsilia is after.

It'll be her friends'."

My Thoughts:

This series is so addictive and I am fully immersed and I will not be coming up for air until I am caught up. I just love all of these characters so much. I love how much there is going on in this world and how many different paranormal creatures we get to encounter.

Mercy is quickly becoming one of my all-time favorite heroines. She has been through quite a bit, but she is a fighter and she pushes through. She has grown so much since the first book and I’ve just come to love her more and more. She always fights for those she cares for and she doesn’t let anything hold her back. And guys… Adam has seriously stolen my heart. I’m so enamored with him. He is so alpha, but never in an overly controlling or domineering way. I mean there’s a whole conversation where he’s like I don’t tell Mercy what she can and can’t do and this is the kind of alphas we need. He complements Mercy and is there when she needs someone, but he knows she is strong and capable of standing on her own two feet. And together I just love them so friggin much. And I still have a special place in my heart for Sam. I love the role he has taken on in this series and I just find him so incredibly lovable.

The plot of this one kept me on edge. Just when I thought things were going in one direction, everything took a left turn and went another way. Poor Mercy is always finding herself in trouble. It’s a good thing she has a knack for finding a way out of it and is more than able to take care of herself.

All in all, Bone Crossed was yet another great addition to this world. I am really dreading the day I am caught up on all the books.

Mini Review: Lucky And The Drowned Debutante (The Carriage House Capers #5) by: Emmy Grace

Release Date: November 6, 2019
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a complementary copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"**Lucky Boucher never has to go looking for trouble. Trouble finds her just fine on its own.**

What do a turkey, a maze, and an inflatable flotation suit have in common?

As usual, just one thing. Me, Lucky Boucher.

It’s a standard Monday, and in my life that means I’m performing a product test that would make most people faint and stumbling upon a dead body in the process. In fact, I float right over it.

Dahlia Hayes is the fiancĂ©e of a notorious arms dealer, and now she’s toe up in the biggest lake in town. If that weren’t bad enough, she has past ties to Liam. He’s the grouchy ex FBI agent who has become my sidekick. That or I’ve become his. Some days, I can’t tell which. However, for the first time since we started solving crimes together, Liam and I find ourselves on opposite sides of the proverbial fence. Getting to the bottom of this murder is going to be tricky.

Things are heating up fast here in Salty Springs. I’m just not sure which is running higher in the case of the drowned debutante—the stakes or the tension. There’s only one way to find out, though—jump right in.

And I’m just the girl to do a cannonball into the middle of it.

**Each story can be read as a stand-alone, so feel free to dive in anywhere**"

My Thoughts:

This series has continually delivered and once again I was hooked by this story. What I love about these books is how they are just so easy to devour. They are quick and fun reads that deliver in every single way. Lucky truly is a great heroine. She is a ton of fun and nothing ever gets her down. She is tenacious and a fighter and nothing ever keeps her down for long. And I still absolutely love Liam. He is a grumpy guy with a heart of gold. And the way these two play off one another is just so much fun. Their banter is amazing and I love that even as their relationship has progressed, they still haven’t lost that back and forth. I also really love Regina and how she’s such a great friend to Lucky. Everyone needs a BFF like that. In this story, Lucky once again finds herself tangled up in a murder mystery, but this time it seems like Liam is tied up in it too. Naturally, Lucky will not stand for that and is on the case. Along the way she gets herself into a few mishaps but she’s not named Lucky for nothing. I loved following Lucky as she solved the case. I just really love that these books are such a great escape from the real world. These books just continue to get better and better and this may be the best one yet.

Mini Review: Right Next Door by: Leah Montgomery

Release Date: October 30, 2019
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a complementary copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"John and Marcy Stanley moved to The Coves for the quiet life. When the two meet the couple next door, they think they’ve struck neighbor gold. Jill and Marcy become fast friends, but It isn’t until Marcy receives an ominous letter that she begins to suspect Jill’s husband, Mark of hiding something.

Something dark.
Something violent.

Shannon Vogle was the victim of an elaborate kidnapping. After being set free, she becomes obsessed with finding the man who took her.

Who tortured her.
Who changed her.

Both women want answers.
Both are determined to get them.
Neither is prepared for what she will find."

My Thoughts:

Leah Montgomery delivers once again and it is so hard to write a review for this book. So I’m going to keep this short and sweet because there are so many things I could spoil. I don’t read this genre all that often, but I enjoyed Leah Montgomery’s debut so I could not pass this up and I am so glad I read this one. The book kept me on the edge of my seat and I just could not stop reading. The book is addictive and engaging and oh holy wow the twists took me by surprise. I read a lot, so I’m not always caught off guard, but this book got me good. And not once, but twice. The character dynamics in this book are so detailed and complex and this book has so many layers to be pulled back. And the way she balances the differing perspectives and slowly pulls them together is done perfectly. The writing in this book is so good and feels so effortless when we all know it is not. This author just knows how to tell a story and knows how to tell it well. Just, all in all, a great read.
