Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 75 - The Golden Gate by Robert Buettner, Someone to Hold by Mary Balogh, Baby by Accident by Caro LaFever

The Golden GateThe Golden Gate by Robert Buettner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I did not know what to expect from this near future novel. What I did find was a interesting story line that was a mystery set in the near future making it Science Fiction. Kate Boyle and Ben Shepard are tasked with finding out why the car driven by Manuel Colibri was the target of a bomb. What follows is an interesting mystery that goes into the past while looking into the future. Buettner did a great job building the story line while keeping the suspense going. I had no idea who was responsible for the bomb. A interesting story that kept me reading into the night. This is one for both mystery and science fiction fans.

Someone to Hold (Westcott, #2)Someone to Hold by Mary Balogh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Camille Westcott was not a nice character in the first Westcott novel. In Someone to Hold Balogh wrote a story that allowed Camille to become a much more likable person. It did not happen overnight but did happen in a fairly short period of time and with the help of Joel Cunningham another character from the first book. I loved the pace of this story and how both Camille and Joel had to release the past and embrace the future. A very good addition to the Westcott series. All of the characters from the first book are back and help move the story along making the story even more enjoyable.

Baby By Accident (International Billionaires, #3)Baby By Accident by Caro LaFever
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lisa Helton and Vico Matter meet and the lust is immediate. What drives the story is the fact that neither want to act or acknowledge it. The story line is familiar. They do act on it and the result is something neither of them want. Marriage and distrust drive the story. A fun easy to read romance that was free on Amazon.
