Be Mine by Sandra Norton Flynn

I have enjoyed reading thrillers since I was in high school. There's something about scaring myself to death while reading a book in the middle of the night. My Grandma Bonnie has the same love and we enjoyed talking about all the Mary Higgins Clark books we'd read. When she passed last year, I was sad for many reasons, but one of those was that I couldn't share exciting thrillers with her.

I loved this book. It had me scared and wanting to keep reading to find out who the bad guy was. Here is the synopsis:

He knows where she works.

He knows where she lives.

And soon, they’ll come face-to-face.

Erin Lewis is an up-and-coming fashion designer building up her career in New York City. With a loving husband, a great assistant, and working in the field of her dreams, she couldn’t be happier.

But perfection can’t last forever.

When a long string of tragedies shakes Erin to her core, she doesn’t know how to keep moving forward day by day. And when she is targeted by a brutal serial killer, she must find the inner strength she never knew she had just to survive.

Sandra keeps you guessing as to who the creep is that won't leave Erin alone. There are the obvious suspects and those that you hope have nothing to do with it. But who actually did it?

Erin had never taken the time to make friends on her own but when Jenna and Cori ask Erin and Michael, her husband, to come with them to meet Dana and Nick, she gains a circle of friendship she never thought possible.

Things get dangerous when Erin begins to feel someone watching her. Then the seemingly random murders throughout New York and New Jersey start to connect to her. After being threatened, her neighbors rally around to protect her. Who could be doing this, and what will it take to stop them?

I highly recommend this book. You can find it for sale on kindle here: Amazon

Change Of Plans by Donna K. Weaver

I have been so excited to read this book so I jumped at the chance to be part of this blog tour. Let me tell you, it was totally worth waiting to read it! I couldn't put it down.

Here is the synopsis:   

When twenty-five-year-old Lyn sets off on her cruise vacation, all she wants is to forget that her dead fiancĂ© was a cheating scumbag. What she plans is a diversion uncomplicated by romance. What she gets is Braedon, an intriguing young surgeon. He's everything her fiancĂ© wasn't, and against the backdrop of the ship's make-believe 
world, her emotions come alive.

Unaware of the sensitive waters he navigates, Braedon moves to take their relationship beyond friendship—on the very anniversary Lyn came on the cruise to forget. Lyn's painful memories are too powerful, and she runs off in a panic.

But it's hard to get away from someone when you're stuck on the same ship. Things 
are bad enough when the pair finds themselves on one of the cruise's snorkeling 
excursions. Then paradise turns to piracy when their party is kidnapped, and Lyn's 
fear of a fairy tale turns grim.

I absolutely loved this book. Cruises, snorkeling, pirates, shipwrecked on a beach with a guy. It couldn't get much better. You could feel for Lyn as the story began, and you want to learn more about who she is.

Braedon is an intriguing man who is always in the right place at the right time for Lyn to run into—sometimes literally. Jori was also very intriguing but I wanted the romance between Lyn and Braedon to work so much that I kept wanting him to leave. I loved it!

This book had me in tears in parts—which I admit is not always hard to do—and cheering in others. It's a great book of romance and self-discovery. I highly recommend it.

A little about Donna:

Donna K. Weaver is a Navy brat who joined the Army and has lived in Asia and Europe.

Because she sailed the Pacific three times as a child, she loves cruising and wishes she 
could accrue enough vacation time to do more of it with her husband. Donna and her husband have six children and eight grandchildren who live all over the world.

At fifty, Donna decided to study karate and earned her black belt in Shorei Kempo. After recording city council minutes for twenty years, Donna decided to write something a little longer and with a lot more emotion--and kissing.
