Review: Always Watching by Lynette Eason

Always Watching by Lynette Eason
Elite Guardians, Book 1
Revell, 2016

I absolutely loved the idea of women bodyguards as the premise to Lynette Eason’s new series, Elite Guardians. This was my first experience reading a Lynette Eason book and it was fast-paced and suspenseful.

Olivia Edwards, agency owner of Elite Guardians bodyguard service, has impressive skills and a professional approach to protecting her clients. And when her friend and co-worker is attacked protecting their client, she becomes even more determined to find the source of these increasingly dangerous threats.

I found this book to be filled with fast-paced suspense which constantly had me on the edge of my seat. The stalker escalates their attacks and the characters have to fight against living in fear.

I did find it a bit difficult to keep track of all the characters and their roles in the story, and because of that I did feel like the characters were hard to connect with. However, the main focus was on the plot and discovering who the stalker is and trying to prevent tragedy from occurring. Besides, all the characters introduced in this book will set up for the next books in this series.

Any fan of romantic suspense will enjoy this new offering from Lynette. Now I have to wonder what will happen in the next Elite Guardians novel. Who will be put in danger next?

Review: The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder

The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder by Rachel McMillan
Herringford and Watts Mysteries, Book 1
Harvest House, 2016

I have followed Rachel McMillan on social media since my early blogging days, and she has always been a witty delight around the blogosphere. So when I heard she signed a book deal, I was thrilled to see her good fortune. And after I read a tiny excerpt from the novel, I had to have it.

Our leading ladies, Jem and Merinda, are all quirks and curiosity. They burst onto the scene of mystery solving with an unparalleled enthusiasm and the insatiable desire to discover the truth. But their severe disregard for danger in the pursuit of that truth proves foolhardy at times.

Suffice it to say Jem and Merinda are quite the handful for their male counterparts. Jasper and Ray are obviously smitten with the ladies, and I wanted to see them on the pages more often. They also prove to be an essential help to the ladies in their ventures.

The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder is fun and adventurous and full of Rachel-isms. If you like mysteries with a little humor mixed in, this is the next book for you!

What will these amateur lady detectives tackle in the next installment of Herringford and Watts Mysteries?
