  • The Hollow of Fear

    The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas

    RECOMMENDED: The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas is $1.99! This is the third book the Lady Sherlock series, which probably needs to be read in order. Sarah gave it a B+:

    I will keep recommending this series, as it is so layered with opportunities to examine it. It can be read as a mystery, as a historical novel with found family, as an examination of sexism and societal limitations on women, and how those limitations are subverted in acceptable and unacceptable ways, or as a study of those outside the boundaries of high society and how they survive with disguises built of behavior.

    Charlotte Holmes, Lady Sherlock, returns in the Victorian-set mystery series from the USA Today bestselling author of A Conspiracy in Belgravia and A Study in Scarlet Women, an NPR Best Book of 2016.

    Under the cover of “Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective,” Charlotte Holmes puts her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. Aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, Charlotte draws those in need to her and makes it her business to know what other people don’t. When her dear friend Lord Ingram stands accused of the murder of his estranged wife, Charlotte goes under disguise to help prove his innocence to Scotland Yard.

  • Clean Sweep

    Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews

    Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews is 99c at Amazon! I’ve heard good things about this book and it has a mix of scifi and paranormal elements, and I really don’t know why I’m dragging my feet on reading this series. It isn’t price-matched yet, but maybe later!

    On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is…different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, “normal” is a bit of a stretch for Dina.

    And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night…Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans—an alpha-strain werewolf—and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything.

  • Highland Captive

    Highland Captive by Alyson McLayne

    Highland Captive by Alyson McLayne is $1.99! This is the fourth book in a historical series I’ve relatively enjoyed, though I haven’t read this one. I’m not sure I’m on board with the hero and heroine fighting over a child, but it does have a 4.2-star rating on Goodreads.

    She wasn’t just his son’s savior.
    She may be his as well…

    Laird Gavin MacKinnon is a changed man―and not for the better. Ever since his young son, Ewan, disappeared two years ago, Gavin has grown callous and bitter. Scouring the countryside, his search leads him to a mysterious woman who maintains the boy is hers. He decides to take them both and ask questions later.

    Deidre MacIntyre will go with the brooding laird if it will keep her son safe. Gavin has to admit that the beautiful lass has a bond with Ewan, and things aren’t adding up. When Deidre’s clan comes to claim her under threat of war, Gavin has a choice to make: fight for her or let her go.

  • The Matchmaker’s Playbook

    The Matchmaker’s Playbook by Rachel Van Dyken

    The Matchmaker’s Playbook by Rachel Van Dyken is $1.99 at Amazon! This is a new adult romance and the Kindle in Motion edition, that means there are extra videos, art, etc. to enhance the book. There are some previews of it on the Amazon page, though it looks a little distracting. I, personally, like imagining the characters for myself.

    Wingman rule number one: don’t fall for a client.

    After a career-ending accident, former NFL recruit Ian Hunter is back on campus—and he’s ready to get his new game on. As one of the masterminds behind Wingmen, Inc., a successful and secretive word-of-mouth dating service, he’s putting his extensive skills with women to work for the lovelorn. But when Blake Olson requests the services of Wingmen, Inc., Ian may have landed his most hopeless client yet.

    From her frumpy athletic gear to her unfortunate choice of footwear, Blake is going to need a miracle if she wants to land her crush. At least with a professional matchmaker by her side she has a fighting chance. Ian knows that his advice and a makeover can turn Blake into another successful match. But as Blake begins the transformation from hot mess to smokin’ hot, Ian realizes he’s in danger of breaking his cardinal rule…

    Would CLEAN SWEEP qualify as competence porn? Even when she has no idea what’s coming next, Dina is one of the most resourceful and determined characters I’ve encountered. She’s my antidote to 2020.

    The entire Clean Sweep series is fantastic, I’ve recommended it to several, but no one has taken me up on it yet. (Sob!) Sweep of the Blade (#4) was one of my favorites from last year.

    I love the Innkeeper series by Ilona Andrews. Not a spoiler but a few characters from The Edge series make brief appearances. There are four books and a novella. There will be more.

    The Hollow of Fear is where I went from _interested reader_ to asking why? (**spoiler alert) Why does the author push to write a series that illuminates sexism & all those horrid restrictions by using what I felt was the ‘woman in the freezer sort of trope.’ (a trope so often ascribed to male writers?) Why do women need to be the victims all the time? I didn’t feel that her heroine needed a love interest, but if she did, why a married one whose wife needed to be disposed of so she could have him? There were so many other ways to handle our ‘Lady Sherlock’s’ personal life.

    I just reread all of the Innkeeper series because I love them so much. I love Illona Andrews,period. I haven’t read The Edge series in a while, and somehow I missed the character crossover. I know what I’ll pull out next!

    I’m still debating moving on with the Lady Sherlock Holmes books. The first one was intriguing, but I was put off by some choices the author made, and I was hoping I wouldn’t have to suspend disbelief quite so much in order for the story to work.

    @Amanda, the Innkeeper Chronicles is such a good series. It’s a lot lighter in tone than their other series and so fun to read!

    I bought the Innkeeper series a while back. I’m a little sorry to say, I’ve also been putting off reading it. All of you have convinced me to, just read it. Thanks for the push!

    This relates to Yesterday’s post which included another series by Mia Marlow. Her Touch of Seduction Series which includes Touch of a Thief, Touch of a Rogue, and Touch of a Scoundrel looks to be on sale. Each book is $2.99 right now on Amazon.

    The Black Madonna, the first book in Stella Riley’s Roundheads & Cavaliers Series is $2.99 through the month of July at Amazon. I’d call it a historical saga with a romance as opposed to a historical romance novel, but I can highly recommend it. And at 600 pages or so, you get plenty of book.

    Sweep in Peace is lovely. The world building for the whole series is fascinating. Book two is my least favorite, so if you don’t like that one as much, don’t let it keep you from book 3.

    I really enjoy the Lady Sherlock series. I reread it at the beginning of quarantine, and then picked up A Conspiracy in Belgravia and A Study in Scarlet Women for my MIL for Mother’s Day. On the 4th, she mentioned that she was enjoying them even though she’s not a Sherlock Holmes fan.

    The Matchmaker’s Playbook is free for Prime members – I’m going to give it a whirl as I am very susceptible to the Pygmalion trope.

    @Stefani Magura. I love Stella Riley’s books! The Mesalliance is probably my favourite because Rockliffe… but the Black Madonna is great too. A beautiful love story set in a tumultuous period of British history that is not often featured in historical romances. The whole series is excellent.

    I too love the Stella Riley books and Mesalliance is fantastic and my favorite. Especially if you listen on Audible with the yummy Alex Wyndham narration. I have the next book “Hazard” wedged somewhere in my massive TBR pile and I must get started on it.

    Curious about Stella Riley’s books,I checked them out on Audible and saw that many of them, including the entire Rockville series I believe, are part of Audible Escape. Audible Escape is similar to Kindle Unlimted in that for a monthly fee you can check out up to 8 audiobooks (mostly romance books) at a time and return them as you finish.

    Yet another voice for Clean Sweep! When I was really struggling with the news and slipping into a real down phase, that helped me get out of it, specifically because of the way the heroine gets through some really awful stuff. (And hey, things are EVEN WORSE now, but it may still be effective!)

    I hadn’t heard of Stella Riley before this but you all have sold me.

    @LN:

    I haven’t read her Georgian set books yet, even though they are in both my e-book and audio collections. This is partially because the first book has a blind heroine, and I can be a bit challenged when authors write characters with my disability, although reviews I’ve read said she did a good job with that. She also has a couple of shorter books set during the English Civil War and restoration which are very good.

    @Judy W:

    I believe the next book is The Player. Hazard is book five. And I completely agree about Mr. Wyndham.

    @Carrie G:

    Had I known that all her Rockliffe books would eventually be available on Audible Escape, I wouldn’t have impatiently bought them all, but they are now saved up for future reading.

    @Taffygrrl:

    You are in for a treat, and I hope you enjoy them.
