Short and Sweet Book Reviews #171 - Still Life by Dani Pettrey, Dark Deeds by Mike Brooks

Still Life (Chesapeake Valor, #2)Still Life by Dani Pettrey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What this did not say anywhere was that this is a Christian Fiction Mystery/Romance. If it had I probably would not have picked it up and I would have missed a good story.  I listened to this on CD and really liked the story line. The plot was interesting and full of twists and turns. The side trips into religion stopped the action briefly but not enough to change the tension in the story. The characters had interesting backgrounds. One of the main characters came from a very dysfunctional background and credited Jesus with her change in behavior. The story line held up with or without religion. Part of a series this can be read as a standalone.

Dark Deeds (Keiko, #3)Dark Deeds by Mike Brooks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Dark part of the title is very true in this third book in the Keiko series. Events just seem to go against the crew and as a result the action is non-stop and the tension just keeps ramping up. The story follows two tracks as the crew separates and it is touch and go as to how everything will end. Another hard to put down book by Brooks.
