We’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors preparing the garden beds for planting and enjoying the spring flowers that have started blooming- I love this time of the year!
This week I continued Rebecca Zanetti’s Deep Ops series, a cute children’s story by Miriam Hurdle, and the third in the Keystone Couples by Staci Troilo.
Let’s take a deeper look:

Hacker Brigid Banaghan hates the undercover work she’s forced to do after getting caught by the HDD. She’s placed with a washed-up Deep Ops unit and is supposed to report on all activities. It isn’t long though before her loyalties shift and she’s placed in the awkward position of lying to both parties.
Her growing attraction to Raider Tanaka doesn’t help. He’s her pretend fiancé in a mission to capture a group of human traffickers involving a mob her father had previous ties with- or was it in the past? She’s determined to prove his innocence and capture those who are behind the ring.
Raider isn’t happy having the inexperienced Banaghan along on an undercover sting operation. He’s supposed to be her handler- he can’t afford to be distracted by the Irish beauty, but her plucky spirit and vulnerability draws him to her.
The action is fast-paced, with the good guys taking as many hits as the bad guys, but offset by humorous characters, (like Roscoe, the high-heel wearing PTSD dog) and snarky interactions that had me laughing-out-loud.
The Romance between Raider and Brigid is hot and sexy, with enough chemistry to burn up the pages, and had enough misunderstandings to make me want to bang their heads together!
I give Fallen 5+ lovely kisses- Loved this book!
When Tina’s parents surprise her with tickets to Tchaikovsky’s concert at the famous Hollywood Bowl, she invites her best friend, Erika. The girls are excited to attend the evening performance, complete with an outdoor picnic and fireworks, and promise to stay close to the adults.
When the girls get lost on a trip to the washroom, it’s Tina’s practicality and calmness in the stressful situation that saves the night.
The illustrations add a fun visual element to this wonderful children’s book based on true events. This would be a good learning tool for parents and teachers alike. It’s important to let kids know how to react in a similar situation.
A must read!
Busy wedding planner Elena Santucci doesn’t have time for the small-town gossip grapevine, sometimes to her detriment.

Elena has always had a thing for her brother’s best friend, but with her unfounded reputation she finds it hard to trust men. Aaron seems different though, kind and sincere. His handsome looks don’t hurt either. Should she give this romance thing a chance?
When Aaron’s ex makes trouble for the couple, they must decide whether to believe in their newfound relationship or stomp the embers out.
I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series- well worth reading!
