Review - Tidewater Inn

Tidewater Inn
Written by: Colleen Coble
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Pub Date: July 17, 2012
Pages: 320 

While on a video call with her business partner and friend, Nicole, Libby Holladay witnessed the kidnapping of Nicole. She drops everything and travels to Nicole's last known location - Hope Island, a small fishing town.

Her missing friend is not the only mystery for her as she learns that her father has recently passed away, but as far as she knew her father died when she was a child. Apparently, her mother had hid the truth from her. Her father had a life on Hope Island and had other children. Libby's father must have loved her as he leaves his Tidewater Inn to her in his will.

Review - Inescapable

Written by: NANCY MEHL
Published by: BETHANY HOUSE
ISBN: 978-0-7642-0927-7
Pages: 336
Pub Date: 2012

    In book one of the Road to Kingdom series, Lizzie Engle is a single mother living in Kansas City working at the Harbor House. Money is tight, but she is able to get by. When her boss becomes ill and takes a leave from work, the new boss, Reba, accuses her of stealing money, in which she did not take. To make things worse, there has been a stranger following her and leaving her strange notes.

    Afraid that charges will be pressed against for the crime she did not commit, Lizzie and her five-year-old daughter Charity pack up their belongings and drive to the small (really small) Mennonite town of Kingdom, Kansas. Five years earlier Lizzie promised herself that she would not return home, as her elder father was very strict in the old school Mennonite ways.

Book Review - Colby Agency - Christmas Miracles: Colby Core

Picking up where Colby Core left off, the Colby Agency had just saved several kids from children trafficking. Victoria Colby-Camp and her son Jim Colby have ordered agent Riley Porter to go New Orleans and take down the Master, a man selling children to the highest bidder.

Meanwhile, Tessa Woods has spent years in the clutches of the Master. She is now an adult and tries to protect the other children who have also been kidnapped. She prays that someone will save her. Her prayers are answered when Riley goes undercover as Buzz Smith, one of the kidnappers from the previous book. Tessa believes that Riley is here to save her and the children.

I was excited when I saw there was a new Colby book out. I enjoyed reading Colby Bass last week. Colby Core goes by fast, as it continues the plotline of human trafficking network. There is a lot of action and suspense. I did not care much for the main hero, Riley. He was just there doing his job, I never got a real feel for his character. Tess is the best character out of this installment. Despite all the horrors that she has encountered in her life, she has faith that she will be saved. If you are looking for a great romantic suspense, then check this book out.

Book Review: Colby Agency - Christmas Miracles: Colby Brass

Victoria Colby, the owner of the detective agency, steps outside to find an injured woman asking for help - her ex has kidnapped her daughter. She assigns the case to Trinity Barrett and his ex-wife Evonne Cassidy, an Equalizer. The Colby had just merged with another agency, the Equalizers.

Trinity and Evonne search the Chicago streets for the missing girl. Only to find out that there are other girls missing as well. They must put aside their rocky past and trust each other as the go undercover to stop the kidnappers.

Colby Brass is categorized as romance suspense, but there was very little romance. Sure, sparks fly for the two main agents, but the book was more action and suspense. The plot is believable and fast paced. The injured mother shows up at the end of the third page and, then, the story takes off like a rocket until the heart-pounding conclusion. If you are looking for a good read, check this book out.
