Strangers She Knows- Review

Strangers She Knows (Cape Charade, #3)Strangers She Knows by Christina Dodd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kellen sure hasn't had an easy life. Even when she thinks she can finally settle down, get married and raise her daughter it doesn't go as planned. She has to have brain surgery and now try to regain full use of her hand and her words again. The trouble doesn't end there as a killer from the past is back and after her.

Kellen is doing her best to cope after surgery even if she is driving Luna their dog crazy with her piano playing. When Mara returns she has no choice but to go with Max and their daughter Rae to an island on the California coast. Being alone knowing Mara is coming after them isntmade any easy with them hiding their real reason for being there from Rae. When a storm arrives they find out they have company and must do what they can to save their lives. Kellen has to face Mara on her own.

The characters all have seem to develop and adjust to their lives. Kellen isn't the strong lonely woman from before. She is adjusting to all kinds of things, marriage, raising a kid and being weak from surgery. Max is getting used to having a partner and to Rae changing. Rae I think is my favorite in this book. She has always seemed like the smart kid who is so wonderful. In this book her preteen is coming out and it made me love her more as she seemed more real. Mara reveals stuff from her past that you can tell made her who she is.

If you like suspense and thrillers this series is definitely for you. It has tons of action, twist and turns. One big surprise that I loved. The ending was perfect and really made me want to know what the future holds for them.

His Final Girl- Review

His Final Girl (B Mine Book 1)His Final Girl by Brooklyn Ann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book made my horror/romance heart so very happy. It was like reading a version of those b scary movies many of us love yet they have a real romance in them.

Linnea is going to be a senior in high school and all she really wants to do is work on her family farm the whole summer. She isn't a hugely popular girl and is happy with her small group of friends. She isn't to happy to go to the senior summer camp. Wes is new to the school, consider a gangly nerd and has trouble breathing in doors let alone in the forest.

Linnea and Wes aren't looking for love but that seems to be what they find along with a murderer set on killing all the campers. They aren't the typical leaders but they stand strong in trying to survive and to trap whoever is after them.

What I loved about this book is the characters and how they seem like everyday people. Not the usual beauty queen and hunk like in other books. There is tons of blood and action and you never know what will happen or who will die next. You also get to see love blossom happen and it's like a step back in time. I really hope there is tons more in this series as I need more like this book.
