"Sins of the Past" by Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, and Lynette Eason

About the Book:
 "Missing" by Dee Henderson:  
John's mom is missing.  As a sheriff, he knows time is critical.  Headed to Chicago, he teams up with Sharon, a cop heading up the investigation.  The two work frantically together to find John's mom before it's too late.

"Shadowed" by Dani Pettrey:  
Libby and Ben (parents of the McKennas) meet when Libby signs up for Ben's whale-watching tour. While out on the tour, they find the body of a fellow swimmer of Libby's.  They work together to solve her murder while trying to avoid danger themselves.


"Blackout" by Lynette Eason: 
Macey is in danger over something that happened long ago.  Although she doesn't remember much of what happened, she knows she was an innocent bystander.  As her memories of that night are starting to resurface and she turns to her cop neighbor Chad for help as the danger escalates.  Both work together to end the danger.

My Review:
"Missing" by Dee Henderson:
I really enjoyed this story.  My only wish was that it was a stand-alone book.  I like John and Sharon together and I like how they meshed to work to find his mom.  I always enjoy Dee Henderson's books.  

"Shadowed" by Dani Pettrey:  
I've read all of the Mckennas' stories and thoroughly enjoyed them.  Reading about their parents was a treat!  I thought the story was really good.  It wasn't rushed and the suspense was well written.  Another good book by Dani.

"Blackout" by Lynette Eason: 
I really liked this story.  Lynette did a good job with the suspense and kept me guessing the whole time.  I haven't read a lot of Lynette's books but I plan on reading more!

"Thin Ice" by Irene Hannon

About the Book:
Christy Reed has been through a lot in a short amount of time: first, losing her parents in a car accident then her sister in house fire.  Just as she felt the healing from her tragic lost, a note comes in the mail in her sister's handwriting.  How is that possible?  Turning to FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, they work together to unravel the mystery, trusting in God to help them through it.

My Review:
I've read almost all of Irene Hannon's book and she never disappoints.  This was definitely a page turner.  I enjoyed the suspenseful twists and turns and felt for Christy as she dealt with whatever she found out about her sister.  I enjoyed this book and the series so far and can't wait for the 3rd one.

"Charity's Cross" by MaryLu Tyndall

About the Book:
Suspected of killing her husband, Charity Westcott flees on the first ship out of Portsmouth, England heading for the colonies. Loathing all men after her abusive marriage, she hopes to reunite with her family in Charles Towne, but the ship ends up in Nassau. When she spots her husband’s brother, who is intent on seeing her hang, boarding her ship, she jumps overboard.
 
Elias Dutton, preacher and son of the famous pirate, Rowan Dutton, must get to Barbados as soon as possible. His sister is in danger, and his parents have charged him with her safety. He cannot let them down—again.  But after rescuing a madcap woman from the bay, he now finds himself tricked into masquerading as her husband so they both can procure passage to Barbados.

Pirates, storms, shipwreck and betrayal threaten to delay the couple in their journey even as sparks fly between them. With her brother-in-law in fast pursuit, the last thing Charity wants is help from a man, especially a religious one, but she has no choice. After Elias’ heart was broken by a sordid woman who nearly ruined his life, he seeks a godly woman pure as the virgin sands of the Caribbean. He believes he has found such a woman in Charity. Until he discovers she is a murderer and is now faced with two choices: letting her go or turning her in to the authorities.

My Review:
This is my first book by MaryLu Tyndall and it won’t be my last.  This was a great book!  I loved the action and romance.  I love books where you feel for the characters and I felt so horrible for Charity.  Elias was a great character to come in and show her Who's important and Who she can turn to in her time of need.   This book was such an adventure; there was never a dull moment!  I’m so excited to read the other books in the series that I ended up buying them!
