Secret Sisters

Secret Sisters - Jayne Ann Krentz

This is a thoroughly enjoyable stand alone novel by Jayne Ann Krentz.

Maddie and Daphne survived a traumatic experience at the age of 12, and 18 years later the events and secrets of that night come back to haunt everyone involved. Maddie and Daphne team up with Jack--the security analyst for Maddie's hotel chain--and his brother Abe--a IT/computer expert--to get to the bottom of what's going on.

Throw in not one, but two romances, an all powerful family, and a creepy setting, and you have the makings of a fun, fast read.

Divided in Death

Divided in Death - J.D. Robb

This is probably one of my favorites in the series, and, if I'm being honest, I didn't think it would be. I knew going in that there was going to be a big "Issue-with-a-capital-I" between Eve and Roarke, and I didn't want to read it. Even though I knew it'd all be alright in the end.

 

But, I did, and ended up loving it. Stayed up past my bedtime last night to finish it.

 

A cheating husband and his lover are found brutally murdered. The man was married to an employee of Roarke's. She immediately comes under suspicion, but both Eve and Roarke believe she's innocent. In the course of their (Eve's and Roarke's) investigation, information is discovered about Eve's heartbreaking past. What to do with that information is where the division between Eve and Roarke begins. And this, to me, is the heart of the story.

 

I like that while they were both angry and hurt, and confused and unsure as to how to resolve their differences, you never once doubt their complete and total love for each other.  And the resolution, when it did come? I will admit to getting teary eyed and then rereading it once more after I got home from work today.
