Juliet Cole is living a nightmare. Her husband, Bob, of fifteen years was just shot to death before her eyes. At first she thinks it's just some random shooting, but then she gets an unnerving voicemail, which makes her realize her husband was deliberately murdered. Somehow she must meet the killers demands, if only she knew what they were talking about.
After fifteen years of marriage, Juliet isn't sure she knows the man she married. Surely he couldn't be involved in anything questionable, let alone illegal, but things aren't looking good.
As if matters couldn't get any worse, Juliet and her sons are in constant danger. They're having a hard enough time grieving, but now they can't even stay in their home. Her oldest son, who is twelve, seems to be taking his dad's death out on Juliet. She's doing all she can to keep the three of them alive and together. Thankfully she has two sisters and a brother on whom she can depend to help her through this devastating time.
Terri Blackstock's books are always full of adventure, twist and turns, and are always unpredictable. There is never a dull moment! Distortion will have you guessing till the end and you won't be able to put it down! A must read for those who like suspense and drama! I cannot wait to read book three!
Torn between her life the way she's known and a life every little girl's dreamed of, Regina doesn't know what to do.
Regina loves old cars, even more than that she loves restoring them! And that's just what she's been doing. Tired of her big firm accounting job, she quit and opened up a shop with some pal's. This spitfire, red-head loves her new life and doesn't care a hoot if she get's dirty and grimy while working on cars. All is well until.....the good looking, English accent speaking, Tanner Burkhardt enters her life.
Tanner is the Minister of Culture for the Grand Duchy of Hessenberg. The king has entrusted him with the job of retrieving the long lost princess....Regina. He can't help but be attracted to her highness, but must retain proper distance. Tanner seems to not only have issues with getting Regina to accept her role as princess, but has some personal issues he needs to resolve as well.
Regina is just now finding out that her great grandmother was the Princess of Hessenberg, which makes her the next heir to the throne. She is so confused and upset that no one has told her about this until now.
Why does she have to give up her now "perfect life" to become a princess?
Will she become a princess?
If she does become a princess, will the people of Hessenberg accept her as their next royal?
I was very interested in this book ever since I read about it. Although it wasn't as all that I hoped it would be, it was still a good read. Princess Ever After reminded me of Princess Diaries, which is a good thing, but could have been less like it. The book did become a bit predictable, but I found myself wondering what I would do if I was in Regina's shoes, though I'll never be. I did not like the slang here in there. Some parts confused me also, like the "entail". I have no idea what that was all about.
Beth Thatcher puts aside a safe, comfortable, wealthy world to travel to western Canada, to teach school to fatherless col miner's children. Her mother and sister don't think she will be able to "rough" it in the wild frontier. She is escorted by a childhood acquaintance, Edward, who has become a Mountie, and both of their families expect them to marry. While there, she meets another Mountie, who captures her attention.
Which one will she choose? Will she be able to "rough it" in western Canada? Or will she go running home?
I enjoyed this book once I got into it. But Beth and Julie having the same names as the Characters in "When Calls The Heart" series was confusing. But I do hope this mother-daughter team write another book to let us know if Beth & Jarrick get married and to see if Beth returns to Coal Valley.
Tess' Aunt Susan is her only living relative. Her mother passed away several years ago. Susan, having taught Tess how to quilt, has instilled in her a love for the craft, but Tess has another interest besides quilting. She is a police detective. She became interested in being a detective when her best friend was killed the night of their senior prom.
Tess is working with a new partner from Chicago when they are called to investigate a homicide. There are many striking similarities between this case and her friends' death, including a mark on the nape of the neck. But that's not all of Tess' concerns. Her aunt seems to be having a lot of "accidents" lately. Aunt Susan says she's just clumsy, but Tess is concerned about her uncle's lack of concern. Susan's husband also happens to be the assistant to the Chief of Police.
