Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 332 - Edge of Eon by Anna Hackett, A Moment in Crime by Amanda Allen

Edge of Eon (Eon Warriors, #1)Edge of Eon by Anna Hackett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It is great to have Anna Hackett writing a new science fiction romance series. This one starts with a familiar trope. Sub-Captain Eve Traynor is in prison and she is not guilty of the charges. Offered what seems to be a suicide mission she succeeds beyond anyone's wildness dreams. That is the fun of the book. From the beginning familiar trope Hackett proceeds to turn everything upside down. Eve proves to everyone that humans are not a weak species and that they deserve to survive. Great fun and a nice set up for the next book in the series.

A Moment in Crime (Santa Fe Revival Mystery, #2)A Moment in Crime by Amanda Allen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked the setting for A Moment in Crime. Having been to Santa Fe the setting felt very real. I also liked the characters. Maddie Vaughn has had her troubles but finds that leaving New York and coming to Santa Fe fits her life. I also liked her dishy doctor. David provides just the right amount of support for Maddie and their burgeoning romance is just right for the time. The movie setting and the murder are laid out very well. I did think the book moved just a little bit slow. I kept waiting for someone to die and it took a long long time. A nice cozy mystery with a interesting historical setting.

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