I can’t believe it’s the end of April already! It seems as though the older I get, the quicker time flies.
My daughter arrived Tuesday night after taking a wrong turn and adding six hours to her trip. It’s been almost five years since we’ve seen her, so I’m a bit emotional, as you can imagine. She’s only here until Friday, then she and my grandson will be leaving. After having him with us for the last seven months the house is going to seem empty.
I guess it will give me more time to read some of the amazing books I’ve downloaded lately, and maybe even get some writing done- gasp!
I’ve been on a mystery kick with my reading lately, and enjoyed all of the following stories.

Enigmatologist Jeremy Logan is approached by a world-renowned explorer who believes he’s found the burial tomb of Egypt’s earliest leader, King Narmer. Legend has it, the king unified Egypt and is buried with two crowns of historical significance, but there is also a curse- one that threatens the lives of everyone involved.
The dig site is in the middle of the Sudd, an almost impenetrable bog that grows larger by the day.
When unexplained occurrences begin to happen with increasing frequency, it is up to Logan to investigate the causes, and determine whether an evil being has been released to kill them all, or if the culprit is very much alive.
This is an interesting read, filled with facts surrounding Egyptology and ancient relics. The tension slowly escalates as the crew get closer to the treasure, and I found myself on edge more than once.
An enthralling read!
When war breaks out, earning a living becomes hard, so Ellie McDonnell and her uncle do what they must in order to keep food on their plates- they break into homes and rob safes. That is, until they are caught by a stoic major with an agenda of his own.
Major Ramsey is tasked with stopping a critical set of blueprints from getting into enemy hands, and if that means using his substantial clout the pull in a couple of safecrackers, he will. But he doesn’t expect to be intrigued by the spirited Electra McDonnell and soon finds himself in a compromising situation with the thief.
A dead German spy, missing blueprints, and a host of suspects made this a page-turning read with a surprise twist I didn’t see coming!
I love Ellie’s humor in the face of danger, and the hint of a love triangle adds an extra edge to already fascinating characters. This series is one to watch!
Delilah, the powerful, sexy shifter who almost killed Sheriff Mateo Grey is back and looking to finish what she started in this thrilling sequel!
While Mateo and his chief deputy, Blair, are moving forward with their romantic relationship, trouble is brewing in Grizzly. A senior on the Blackfoot Reservation is murdered- his throat ripped open by a feral creature of the night, and the Chief of Police, Jesse, is afraid the woman he thought he loved is behind the attack. He’s still coming to terms with the fact his blood-brother and estranged best friend, Mateo, is a shifter and had a torrid affair with Layla, or Delilah as she was known by then, and that she, too, can shift to wolf form.
Instead of being dead, as Mateo and Jesse thought, Delilah is back and more powerful than ever. She’s harnessed the ability to stop a change, becoming half-woman, half-wolf, and has superhuman strength. When she threatens the community and comes after Blair, silver bullets seem to be the only way to halt the carnage.
I was thrilled to see the continuation of Mateo’s story published, and though the focus is on Jesse in this story, the rest of Grizzly’s characters play a large part with plenty of humorous exchanges to lighten the grim storyline. Short, descriptive lines increase depth and build tension toward a combustible finale.
This is a highly recommended supernatural suspense series!
