Book Review-Beyond Revenge-Harley Christensen

Thursday, February 22, 2024

Arianna Jackson was never told that she was adopted by her parents before they both died in a plane crash. As if that wasn't horrible enough--she went to take the trash out one morning and found a woman, dead, in the dumpster she used. She had never seen this woman before but when shown a picture of her was shocked. She thought she was looking at a picture that could have been her!! Then she found out that she was actually a twin-but the twins had been separated at birth.

She started a quest to find out more--what she finds out will astound you--She also was aware that the killer would probably try to murder her!!

This story will hold you captive as more and more details are uncovered.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Some friendships can be murder... Arianna Jackson—AJ to her friends—has experienced enough drama in the past six months to last her a lifetime. Finding out she’s adopted and a twin to the girl she found brutally murdered and dumped in her alley being among the headliners. And, of course, there’s her sister’s killer, still pursuing her and the secret she holds, despite assurances he’s currently locked away in a secure government facility. Unfortunately, even the best of intentions prevent her from living a drama-free existence when Charlie Wilson, a frequent client of her Mischievous Malamute photography business and an old high school friend, asks her for help after being arrested for a heinous crime he insists he didn’t commit. Sure, Charlie may be arrogant and self-centered, but in AJ’s book, being a jerk doesn’t necessarily mean he’s guilty—not of this crime, anyway. AJ quickly realizes her old pal may not be as innocent as she’d originally been led to believe when he produces a sketchy alibi and is less than forthcoming about a series of missing hours the day of the crime. Still, with or without Charlie’s assistance, she’s determined to find the truth, wherever it leads. Armed with her Alaskan Malamute, Nicoh, and best friend, Leah Campbell, AJ searches for shreds of evidence to prove Charlie’s innocence. But the harder they look, the greater the roadblocks they encounter as it becomes apparent Charlie isn’t the only one with secrets to hide and demons to bury. In fact, much more may be at stake, including the bonds of friendship. In a world that walks the tightrope of good versus evil while nudging the boundaries of black versus white, there are always shades of grey—where the truth you seek isn’t always the one you find. Sometimes the demons that haunt us are resurrected for something greater than revealing the truth. Sometimes the reasons go beyond vengeance…beyond retribution…beyond revenge.

Book Review-Other Peoples Money-Cynthia Hamilton

Wednesday, February 21, 2024

There are some people who just love to get their hands on what other people have (especially their money). Usually they are really good at scamming or conning the people they have chosen. And then there are the experts!!

Madaline and her team take on 3 jobs at one time--no choice really--two are old friends of hers. The team is kind of flummoxed until they begin to realize that all three cases are somehow connected!!

Lots of twists and turns as the team finally are able to figure it out--It will keep you guessing from page 1 until the end.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

When the lure of other people's money is too great to resist...

Embezzlement and gold-digging hit close to home when two friends from Madeline’s past seek her help with delicate personal matters that could have lasting repercussions.

When funds go missing, Madeline must hunt down the trusted bookkeeper who can set things right... before her employer takes the blame.

The fast-approaching nuptials of his recently widowed father prompt another old friend to ask Madeline to do a background check on the much younger fiancée. It doesn’t take long to figure out the woman is not who she claims to be. But who is she really?

While Madeline and her team search for the missing bookkeeper and try to get the skinny on the possible gold-digger, startling connections begin to appear that will leave you following the trail of other people’s money until the very last page.

Other People's Money is the seventh book in the beloved Madeline Dawkins series of mystery novels.

About the Author: (from Amazon)
