Justice Buried by Patricia Bradley

About this Book

In an effort to get her security consulting business off the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she’s ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she’s out of her league–and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he’s the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.

My Review

Can I say I loved it!?! First off, I related to the main character, Kelsey Allen. She was a woman after my own heart, in that she was a hacker trying to start her own security company. She was smart and fun to watch. I also related with her snarky attitude.

The story grabbed me from the beginning and kept me guessing throughout. I always enjoy it when the author allows the reader to solve the mystery along with the characters. Bradley kept me guessing. The chemistry between Kelsey and Brad was extremely fun. I loved the interactions.

I was also impressed with how she covered the hacking parts of the story. She kept it simple enough that the computer novice wouldn’t be lost, but for those of us that have experience should find Kelsey’s actions plausible.

This is a book 2 in the series but is not dependent on book 1. You see many of the same characters from book 1 in a supporting role.

Review: Crown of Souls by Ronie Kendig

About this Book

Six months after stopping a deadly plague, Cole “Tox” Russell and his team are enjoying a little rest. That peace is short-lived when a sniper shot hits Tox. The enemy is discovered to be one of their own, a rogue Special Forces team operator.

Alec King is perhaps the only person as skilled as Tox, and he’s out for justice. Furious with orders that got his men killed, he intends to make those responsible pay. And he insists Tox join him, believing they are the same breed of soldier.

Afraid his old friend is right, Tox battles a growing darkness within himself as he and his team engage in another deadly encounter with antiquity. It appears Alec is cheating–he’s using a mysterious artifact, a crown that history has linked to some of the worst slaughters in humanity. Racing to stop Alec before his vengeance is unleashed, Tox must fight the monster without becoming one.

My Review

This series just gets better and better! I love the action in this book as well as the characters. I love the development of Tox as a person and in his relationship with Haven. There is an excellent dynamic between them.

The story is action-packed pretty much beginning to end. At times the action is intense and it’s not always happily ever after for some of the characters. The historical timeline is a little odd for me, but the writing and the modern day timeline is so good, I can overlook that piece.

I’m looking forward to what will happen next in this series. The author dropped an interesting bombshell at the end of the book that has me anxious to see what’s next.

If you like military stories you’ll definitely like this one. I do recommend reading this series in order, otherwise, you may feel a little lost.
