A coninuation of the inhabitants of siren song, this is Elizabeth's story with Ravinia's running through it. The books these two sisters cowrite are somewhat different than anything they write seperately. They have elements of the supernatural but trying to keep the backstory straight can sometimes be complicated. It's best to read them in order or you may be lost.  Mattoon SHARECatalog

Finishing the previous book we knew that Tatum and Jared were not together. Jared is brought back to town to see his mother during her pregnancy, not knowing that Tatum will be there also.

For the past 2 years Tate has been lost not understanding why Jared broke up with her. She has tried to move on but no one will ever compare. Until he shows up, and she tries to ignore him and tries to hate him.

Jared needed to leave to find where his place in life was but he had always planned to come back for Tate.  Mattoon SHARECatalog

I had gotten this book for $2 on the Kindle. I didn't know what to expect, but it was definitely worth it. It follows a new lawyer through an interesting murder trial. It kept me wanting to read. It was simple, not paragraphs after paragraphs of detail; just what you needed to know, so it never got boring or monotonous. Good read! Finished it quickly cause I never wanted to put it down!  Mattoon SHARECatalog

This is about an FBI agent who has dual citizenship so while he is American, he has grown up in England so has a British accent. This book feels and reads differently than her other books perhaps because it was cowritten by J.T Ellison, but the action is still there. As is a relationship between the 2 main agents Nicholas and Mike(Michaela). It was a pretty good read for a rainy summer day.  Mattoon SHARECatalog
