It Had to be You By @Susanmaywarren

It Had to be You by Susan May Warren

Eden Christiansen never expected to be her younger brother, Owen’s, cheerleader. Attending all of his hockey games, being there whenever he needed something. When Owen begins to make some poor decisions Eden turns to Team Captain and Enforcer, Jace Jacobsen, who appears unwilling to help.

I have always loved Susan May Warren’s writing and specifically her Deep Haven books, and although ‘It Had to be You’ takes place in the city for the most part, this may be one of my favorite books! I love the character of Eden, disgruntled with her job and dreaming of more, investing fully in her family and the dreams they have! With both Jace and Eden you see how their characters struggle with the everyday and how they grow and change as the book continues.

Warren’s writing will draw you in and make you believe you are a member of the Christiansen family. For those of you who love a well developed christian romance story with a side of mystery, characters you can relate to, and a book you will not want to put down, this is the book for you!

Dee Henderson is back! And what a return she has made! Her latest novel introduces us to two new characters, Ann Silver and Paul Falcon as well as some guest appearances of some of our favorite characters from Dee’s books.

Paul Falcon, a seasoned FBI Investigator has been tracking down a killer for years, the lady-killer as she has come to be known is elusive and her cases quickly turn cold until now, Ann Silver appears to be just another cop at first but the case she drops on Paul’s desk can lead him to finally discover the identity of the lady-killer.

Paul is ready to settle down, he wants a wife, a family. Ann is content being single and living in the moment, never planning what the future will bring. A case brings these two together, and Paul finds himself wanting to be around Ann more than just for the case, but she has some secrets and Paul wants her to be able to trust him with those secrets. Ann likes Paul, but is not sure if he can handle her secrets.

Henderson has not lost her touch one bit! You will love the new characters and the story that she has woven between them. Throughout this book you will encounter many twists and turns you were never expecting! Just when you feel like you’ve figured out what happened a new twist is uncovered that keeps you glued to the pages!
