It’s Christmastime again in Heartbreaker Bay!

When Sean O’Riley shows up at the Hartford Bed & Breakfast for his older brother’s bachelor weekend, he’s just hoping to make it through the weekend. What he’s not expecting is to come face to face with the woman he lost his virginity to a decade ago—a woman he’s never really forgotten.

The last time Lotti Hartford saw Sean, she told him she loved him while he said nothing. Now, ten years later, she’s just looking for a good time. For once, she wants to be the wild and free one, and Sean – the good time guy – is the perfect candidate.

But as the weekend continues, Sean realizes that after a lifetime of being the hook-up king, he’s ready to find happily-ever-after, and he wants it with Lotti. But will she open her heart to him again? As Christmas sweeps through the little B&B, he can only hope love and magic are in the air

The Lost Woman

series: Louise Rick #9

by Sara Blaedel

A housewife is the target of a shocking, methodical killing.

 

 

Shot with a hunting rifle through her kitchen window, the woman is dead before she hits the ground. Though murdered in England, it turns out that the woman, Sofie Parker, is a Danish citizen–one who’s been missing for almost two decades–so Louise Rick is called on to the case. 

Then the police discover that the woman, Sophie, had been reported missing eighteen years ago by none other than Eik, Louise Rick’s police colleague and lover. Impulsive as ever, Eik rushes to England, and ends up in jail on suspicion of Sofie’s murder. Unsettled by the connection, and sick with worry for Eik, it falls to Louise to find the killer in what will become her most controversial case yet…

This was my first Sara Blaedel book and man was it good, makes me wonder why I’ve waited so long to read her. I know I probably shouldn’t have started with book 9 but I really didn’t feel like I was that lost. Sure some of the relationships took a few more seconds to figure out but really I was fine reading this and I really enjoyed it. Louise is a like-able character and I liked the police procedure drama that unfolded. The ideal of a sharp shooter killing you through your kitchen window really gave me the creeps and has me shutting those curtains at nightfall. I liked how it explored a very taboo topic that is behind Sofie’s murder.  There were some big plot twist and turns even for a newbie like me. I called them both but that didn’t bother me. It was interesting to see how the author disclosed them. Even with the big cast of characters I felt each was well developed and I got to learn about them all. I really liked the chemistry between Louise and Eik and really can’t wait to dive into the whole series so see how their relationship unfolds leading up to book 9. If you are like me and haven’t had a chance to read Sara Blaedel’s series Louise Rick than pick a copy of The Lost Woman or start with book 1 Call Me Princess. Really while I do usually recommend reading a series from the start I think this author is such a great writer you could start anywhere in the series and be OK.

Thank you so much Hachette for sending me a copy of The Lost Woman. All thoughts and opinions are my own and not influenced by the free book.

I will say I haven’t read books 1 – 3 of the Heartbreaker Bay series. I usually don’t go for sappy romance books. Every now and then I will pick one up, however if it takes place during Christmas I’m all for it. I thought this book sounded really sweet and a nice light read. I was right I really enjoyed Chasing Christmas Eve. I’m going to be checking out more from Jill Shalvis and will read the rest of the series as well as grab books 1-3 from my library soon. If you’re looking for a holiday, winter themed book that is sweet than Chasing Christmas Eve might be just the book.

 

 

 

About the Book:   Meet cute…   Run for the hills—temporarily. That’s Colbie Albright’s plan when she flees New York for San Francisco. Wrangling her crazy family by day and writing a bestselling YA fantasy series by night has taken its toll. In short, Colbie’s so over it that she’s under it. She’s also under the waters of a historic San Francisco fountain within an hour of arrival. Fortunately, the guy who fishes Colbie out has her looking forward to Christmas among strangers. But she’s pretty sure Spencer Baldwin won’t be a stranger for long.

Make merry…

Spence’s commitment to hiding from the Ghosts of Relationships Past means he doesn’t have to worry about the powerful—okay, crazy hot—chemistry he’s got with Colbie. Just because she can laugh at anything, especially herself… just because she’s gorgeous and a great listener…just because she “gets” Spence immediately doesn’t mean he won’t be able to let Colbie go. Does it?

…and hope for a miracle.

Now the clock’s ticking for Colbie and Spence: Two weeks to cut loose. Two weeks to fall hard. Two weeks to figure out how to make this Christmas last a lifetime.
