A Redemption Mystery: The Black Sheep’s Redemption

The Black Sheep's Redemption, by Lynette Eason, is a 2012 Harlequin in the Love Inspired (Christian Romance) Suspense line.

Danger in a Small Town: Confessing to the Cowboy

Confessing to the Cowboy is a 2013 Harlequin Romantic Suspense by Carla Cassidy. Given the random nature of my romance book purchases, I'm surprised this is my third title from Cassidy. I've previously read Just Joe and Cowboy with a Cause - the latter from the same Cowboy Cafe series. That was number three, and …

Editing Needed: Stranded with the Suspect

Stranded with the Suspect is a 2018 Harlequin Intrigue from Cindi Myers. Yes, I'm reviewing a book that is less than a year old.

They were all serials, so they continued from something I hadn't read, carried on in something not yet in the friend's collection, and frequently referred to other stories (*See Muscleman vs Waterman #235 to understand this remark). …

The Bounty Hunter

The Bounty Hunter, by Vicki Lewis Thomson, is a 1994 Harlequin Temptation. No link, as it seems to be out of print, not available as an eBook, and not widely available used. This is a more-or-less country and western romance - the heroine lives in a rural trailer (she bought, on land she owns), keeps …

Evening Stars

Evening Stars is a 2014 novel by Susan Mallery, from Mira books (a Harlequin imprint that features longer and more complex stories than genre romance, aimed at a broader audience). As the cover states, this is 'A Blackberry Island Novel' which tells us there are other stories in this setting. The Booklist review excerpt blurbed …
