Review: Moving Target by Lynette Eason

About this Book

When Maddy McKay and Quinn Holcombe don’t show up for Quinn’s surprise birthday party, his friends know that something is very wrong. Their search turns up little beyond evidence that Quinn and Maddy just decided to take off for a long overdue vacation. But it soon becomes apparent that they did not leave of their own accord.

Maddy awakens in a cement room with no idea where she is. But it’s not long before she realizes she’s in the clutches of a madman exacting revenge by hunting. His prey of choice? Humans. Now Maddy and Quinn must run for their lives, hoping to find their killer before the next game begins. Because if they don’t win this game, they die.

Fast, furious, and flirty, Lynette Eason’s relentless suspense barely gives her readers time to catch their breath in this third thrilling installment of the Elite Guardians series.

My Review

The Elite Guardians’ series has been outstanding. Each book has focused on a different member of the team. We met Maddy in book one when she is attacked and in serious condition. Now in book three she’s the focus of the story along with Detective Quinn Holcombe, who has been in each book.

I’ve enjoyed each book in the series, but I think book three is the best. The author took the intensity and suspense to a new level. It was hard for me to put the book down until I finished it. There were several surprises in the story.

I love Quinn and watching his development throughout the series and especially in this book. Maddy is a such a great character. She’s strong and independent but practical.

The books in this series can be read independently of each other. Of course, if you’re like me the OCD requires you to read them in order.

No disclaimer I bought the book, the opinions are mine.

Review: Random Acts of Fraud by Christy Barritt

About this Book

Vintage-loving Holly Anna Paladin finds online dating uncouth and unbecoming.  But, in an attempt to overcome her romantic slump, her BFF convinces Holly to give it a shot. When Holly is stood up on her first date, she’s halfway relieved . . . until she discovers the reason isn’t because her cyber matchup has cold feet. Instead she stumbles upon him in a classic Mustang, deader than good old-fashioned manners.

Holly’s had enough with investigating crime and leaves her ex-boyfriend, Detective Chase Dexter, to solve this mystery. But Holly is somehow connected to this murder, and someone is determined to keep her in the thick of things. She hopes it’s not Drew Williams, the handsome funeral director who’s trying to sweep her off her feet.

Before more people are hurt, Holly is determined to unmask the pretender in her life. But can she keep her feelings for Chase locked away? Or will Holly end up losing her heart to him all over again?  She must solve the case before someone pulls the plug on her profile . . . and deletes her permanently.

My Review

We met Holly Paladin through Gabby St. Clair and she was easy to fall in love with, especially when she thought she only had a year to live. This character is curious, intelligent, and just fun to watch. Her sidekick, Jamie, adds so spunk as well.

This story picks up shortly after book 4 ends. Holly finds herself going on a blind date that in true “Holly” fashion goes south quickly. One of the things I like about Christy Barritt’s writing is she gets the action going early in the book and keeps it going throughout the story.  This book is no exception!

I love Chase and not to give too much away I’ll keep it at I love Chase, despite his issues I love him!

You could probably read this as a stand alone, but I highly recommend reading this series from the opening book to the current. You will truly appreciate the characters and how they have developed and matured through the series.

In full disclosure, I paid for this book because I like the author. I would (and have) recommended this author and this series to a friends!
