Sunday Spotlight #5-Allison Pearl

Happy Sunday, friends! A few weeks ago I started doing a "Sunday Spotlight" where I highlight a book/author that deserves more love!  I take a book that I have read and enjoyed that has less than 100 reviews on Goodreads and give it some extra love by drawing it to your attention! Maybe someday I will host a link party (if I can figure it out) to make it easier to participate. 

Title: Glazed Suspicion

Series: Love and Danger in St. Claire #1

Author: Allison Pearl

Publisher: Anaiah Press

Genre: Christian Fiction, Mystery

27 Ratings 8 Reviews (free on Kindle Unlimited) 

(None of the reviews on Goodreads are less than 3 stars)

My Review:

Short, sweet and to the point. No one should have to go through what Nikki went through, it was quite a lot for a short amount of time. I figured out the bad guy about half-way through the book. If you like mystery/suspense books you will enjoy this one.

Synopsis (from Goodreads): 

After escaping a life marred by crime, Nicole Appleton flees to small town Saint Claire and starts a business of her own. She still craves forgiveness and maybe a family, but could anyone love her once they discover she sugar-coated her past?

When sheriff’s deputy, Josh Bennet, arrives on the scene of a break-in at the local doughnut shop, he finds evidence incriminating his not-so-secret-crush. Is the fair beauty being framed or is she the mastermind trafficking drugs through his hometown? When things turn deadly, Josh must discover who the real villain is before it’s too late. And he’s praying that it’s not her.

Title: Dunked in Trouble

Series: Love and Danger in St. Claire #2

Author: Allison Pearl

Publisher: Anaiah Press

Genre: Christian Fiction, Mystery

27 Ratings 8 Reviews (free on Kindle Unlimited)

My Review:

I love that this story was a continuation from the first book, same characters. It was a quick, enjoyable read.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

Nicole Appleton’s life is finally perfect. With a sweet shop all her own and a handsome fiancĂ© ready to walk her down the aisle, she couldn’t be happier. At least until she discovers that not only was she orphaned by a criminal legend, but the silent mastermind running the vast network has tracked her down. What could he want from her? And one of his associates may be closer than she thinks. Could he even be the man she’s supposed to marry?

Sheriff’s deputy, Josh Bennet, can’t wait to say ‘I do’ but the stranger stalking his bride-to-be has other plans. Josh has always depended on his strength and intelligence, but he’s failed to see the skeletons buried in his hometown or to keep the women he loves from slipping through his fingers. After all, Josh lost his first wife to illness. Will he lose his fiancĂ©e to murder now that she’s pushed him away? What will he have to give up to make her believe he’s the good guy? He wants to be writing his vows not planning an escape, but if they can’t find out the truth, it won’t just be their wedding plans getting cut short. It will be their lives.
