First up in Sins of the Past

Missing by Dee Henderson

I love all books by Dee Henderson.  While there’s been one story that didn’t live up to my expectations, Missing was not one of those stories.  I found myself trying to carve out more time to read this story so I could find out the ending.  In this story, a mother is kidnapped and her son comes home to help find her.  Surprisingly, I was able to discern some of the twists and turns this story took.  Perhaps it’s because I have read each of Henderson’s books at least twice, most 3-4 times.  Despite figuring out the ending, I loved the suspense.  I enjoyed every moment.

Shadowed by Dani Pettrey

In this story, Pettrey tells the story that got the entire McKenna clan series started.  It’s a story filled with spies, intrigue, suspense and the right amount of romance.  One of the things I appreciate about Pettrey’s writing style is that each character is well developed, but still often has a hint of mystery.  She shares enough about the character that you understand them, but often leaves much of their histories up to your imagination.

Blackout by Lynette Eason

Eason’s story held the most amount of suspense for me.  The story starts instantly by catching your attention and I held my breath until the first scene resolved.   This story read the most quickly for me and kept me guessing until about the last couple of chapters when a transition sentence stopped me in my tracks.  I read it a few times and as I pondered that one sentence, I began to fit a few pieces of the puzzle together.  To my recollection, this was the first story I’ve read by Eason, and it won’t be my last.
