REVIEW - Destined for Love by Melissa Foster

Veterinarian Jade Johnson comes home after breaking up with her boyfriend (who turns into somewhat of a stalker). She's always had her eye on Rex Braden, the son of a neighboring rancher. However, her dad and Rex's dad are feuding, and have been for years. After sparks fly between Jade and Rex, they must decide how to approach their families and end the feud. Rex's late mother plays a part in the outcome of the book. I really appreciated how the main characters felt, and that they didn't want to upset their fathers. Enjoyed how this one turned out.

Blood on the Tracks

By Barbara Nickless
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Expected Publication Date: October 1, 2016
Genre: Mystery/suspense

From the back cover:
"A sadistic murder draws a war-haunted cop into the deadly world of a rail-riding gang."

My review:
Sydney Rose Parnell, a special agent for the railroad police, is suffering from PTSD after her time in the war. So when she is drawn into a murder mystery, the ghosts that haunt her appear more and more often. She is looking for the murderer of a young lady who helped the homeless. With the help of her K9 companion, Clyde, who is also a war veteran; she sets out to solve the crime. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way.

I loved Sydney's strength and determination, even though she had bouts of mental fragility from the war. Who wouldn't? I highly recommend this author's first book.

Yasmin Evans, fired (for having an affair with a double agent) from Interpol, ends up working for the CIA. She is tasked with finding deadly vials of a biological weapon that could cause mass destruction. To do this, she must infiltrate a Saudi palace. Along to help her is Navy SEAL, Ben, nicknamed "Big Bird". Tall and handsome, she becomes attracted to him. Will their growing attraction threaten their plan? Along with 2 other SEALS, they work together to save the world. 

I enjoyed this book, though it was rather short and a quick read. I liked Yasmin, who was just the right amount of tough. Strong character.

Zoe Harper is competing in a televised cooking competition. Her competitors are mostly likable, except for Cher, who wants to win the competition so it will lead to modeling and/or acting. At the very beginning of the book, Zoe meets one of the judges, Gideon Irving. It's an interesting meeting, and the sparks fly almost immediately.

It took me a while to get into the British writing, but once I did, it was smooth sailing. What I liked about the book was Zoe's sweet personality. She helped many people along the way, and for the most part had a smile on her face. In fact, she was almost too nice, because I would have kicked Cher to the curb, more than once. Not posting any spoilers about her relationship with Gideon, but this was quite an enjoyable book.
