My guilty pleasures, these books!!

Blood & Lace – Trinity Scott


I was fortunate to receive this novel as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.

Chloe Sterling, a reporter who is presently suspended from work due to her less than ethical tactics, has arrived in California to visit her twin sister, Eden. But Eden is nowhere to be found, and when the local police department seem less than interested in Eden’s disappearance, she turns to FBI Special Agent Gage Pierce for help.

Gage is immersed in his own work, but he feels an instant attraction to Chloe, and that attraction is reciprocated. As Gage investigates Eden’s employer, Provocative, Inc, he also learns that Eden had a side job, producing risqué podcasts from home, for an organization called Red Light Productions. Chloe, not about to sit idle, follows Gage and attempts some research on her own, landing on the radar of Eden’s abductor.

With the help of some non-law enforcement friends in high places, Gage and Chloe immerse themselves in Eden’s life and activities in attempts to re-trace her steps. As they unknowingly close in on a killer, they play right into his hands, and the killer closes in as well…

This book sucked me in with the first paragraph, and I read it cover to cover in a few short hours! A great read, with intrigue in spades, and just enough hot romance to keep readers engrossed and wanting more. I hope to see this crew of unorthodox investigators in future novels!! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
