This was a quirky story that made my sense of the not ordinary perk up. I have been heavy into the true life and paranormal case solving that this brought a cool wind to my mind and brushed away some of the cobwebs. Blanche is an enchanting character and her way of solving things is totally out of bounds.  "I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review."


Code of Honor This story was stilted to my way of thinking.  I was not sure who the main character was until I got to chapter two. Pietro and Lucia are a good match. But for Pietro to be so brilliant he was not believable in keeping his feelings for Lucia hidden from her and her father. Although it seemed to be evident that the father did not trust anyone but Pietro to watch over his daughter he seemed to not know that Pietro was in love with her. The Mafia connection seemed forced and really did not add a lot to the story. "I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review."


This is a classic Jude Deveraux tale. The characters and action keep you reading until you know what the end result will be. It is a modern day romance with all of the bells and whistles that go with that genre. Yet told in such a manner that you continue to read even if you have already developed in your mind how the story will end. There are some ghost, one evil step-sister who turns out to be just a misunderstood person. A few tangled romances that turn out well in the end. The main characters work well together and help to heal each other. The ghost interventions are rewarded with a gentle conclusion that makes you say “Ah!”  "I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review."




Calia and Aric are a good match. Both are presented as strong characters and their story is exciting and does not drag. There are several places where the humor actually made me laugh out loud. Lots of explicit violence. "I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review."
