On to What I’m Reading Now:
A week or so ago (before all the hoopla of Scandal’s release) I finally had time to read Sarah Ballance’s romantic suspense novella Tide of Lies. I’d been itching to get to this book because I’d followed it in snippets on Six Sentence Sunday for months. Ms. Ballance led us up to the most dramatic moment of the book–and left us cold! Sarah Ballance is evil that way. LOL
Detective Holden Whitlow is haunted by the three unsolved murders of young women from two years before. Then his cold case heats up when his ex-lover, Julia Cohen, becomes the next intended victim. Julia’s been attacked and is ready to run, but Holden can’t let her go before finding out if their spark can be re-kindled. Even if it costs Julia her life.
The romance between these two is hot, the twisty turns of the book are sharp, and the climax will have you scrambling to retrieve your Kindle (from the wall you smashed it against) to see how this story can ever have a HEA.
Tide of Lies was a fantastic read. It’s the first Sarah Ballance I’ve enjoyed, but it sure won’t be the last!
Tide of Lies is available at Amazon and other e-retail outlets.
