Review: Ice Cold

Ice Cold
Ice Cold by Cherry Adair

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I had never read any Cherry Adair books and find that I am now hooked! I couldn't put this book down. Now I can't wait to go back and read the earlier books in her T-FLAC series.

When bomb expert, Rafael Navarro, first meets cyber specialist, Honey Winston sparks fly and it's not just because they are fighting in the dark and pretty well matched! As Rafael and Honey race to stop a group of terrorists from destroying the world's banking community, they find themselves falling for each other. In the midst of their race to track down the terrorists responsible, they realize that this goes further than the banking community and is aimed at T-FLAC itself.

I loved the interaction between Rafael and Honey. Honey doesn't want to let anyone in because of her past and Rafael just won't take no for an answer. As the intrigue around them deepens and they see that Honey is being set up, Rafael becomes very protective of her. He doesn't want to see her in any dangerous situation, even though that is the business that they are in.

Review: Better Than Chocolate

Better Than Chocolate
Better Than Chocolate by Sheila Roberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I've been trying to read more books by new authors and am glad that I decided to read "Better Than Chocolate" by Ms. Roberts. I found myself thoroughly enjoying my visit to Icicle Falls, WA and visiting all of the interesting characters who live there.

I had a good time following the trials of Samantha Sterling and her sisters as they struggle to find a way to save the family business, Sweet Dreams Chocolate Company. They have just found out that their recently deceased step-father has brought the family business to near ruin and the bank is getting ready to call in the bank note that will spell the ruin of both the company and the town. Now Samantha and her sisters are racing time to find a way to stop the unthinkable from happening.

In the midst of this, Samantha falls for the bank manager, Blake Preston, who is getting ready to call in the note. Watching Samantha deal with her growing attraction for Blake, especially since he may be taking her company away from her is fun.

There is a host of other quirky characters who make visiting Icicle Falls, WA a fun place to visit. I enjoyed meeting everyone and can't wait to see what other adventures are in store for the Sterling sisters and the town of Icicle Falls.
