Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 184 - Judgment Road by Christine Feehan, Lies That Comfort and Betray by Rosemary Simpson

Judgment Road (Torpedo Ink #1)Judgment Road by Christine Feehan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Anya Rafferty is the perfect match for Reaper. It is just going to take both time to get everything right. There are secrets on both sides. Both Anya And Reaper are interesting characters with Reaper having a past that is very hard to get over. I meet the Torpedo Ink crew in the last book of the last series and wondered how any of them were ever going to find an HEA. Turn out it will not be easy. Add a danger to the club in the mix and you have tension, danger, and a very fast paced and interesting story. Love how Reaper was the first for I through he would be the very last to find someone he could trust.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

Lies That Comfort and Betray (A Gilded Age Mystery #2)Lies That Comfort and Betray by Rosemary Simpson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Set in the late 1800's Lies That Comfort and Betray shine a light on how different our justice system is from that in our not so distant past. Prudence MacKenzie is a heiress and a partner with attorney Geoffrey Hunter in an investigation firm. When girls turn up murdered the two try to find the killer. What emerges is a story that is set in both the high society of the time and the underbelly that is also part of the times. This is a story with a lot of twists and turns. Justice is slow to happen and in the end is taken into the hands of one man who suffers a life altering event. I enjoyed the story but did wish I had read the first book in the series. Prudence is a woman out of her time and the events that made her change happened in the first book. There are several interesting characters who seem to be set up as continuing. Blossom the dog is the most interesting.
