Now that we have our snacks, let's get to it!!
Hero Needed ~
Some heroes are born and some are forged by events.
Marisa’s best friend Carolyn was killed by a train, but then Carolyn’s husband claims she committed suicide. Proving he’s wrong will be a heroic feat. EMT Nick Stark seems a natural for the job. Yet the truths Marisa and Nick uncover spark unexpected danger.
Does the secret of Marisa’s parentage tie in with Carolyn’s death? And is Marisa prepared to face the truth in order to identify whoever now wants her dead?
My review (on Goodreads):
If you love category
romantic suspense novels with a high spice level, this book is for you!
The heroine, Marisa,
was a heroine I loved rooting for! Marisa and Nick won't stop until they get to
the bottom of a puzzling death. As more facts and strange happenings occur,
solving more than a murder is at stake. Marisa's life and the future of the small
town where she resides are in danger too.
What really stood
out for me in Ms. Lacy's book were the strong characters and the beautiful
setting. From the opening chapter, the setting is almost like another
character. It influences the events of the book, and I have to say (no
spoilers!), one of the pivotal scenes toward the end, where Marisa controls her
fate, had me grinning and wanting to high five her! Fun stuff!
**I received an
advanced reader copy of this book with no obligation to review it. All opinions
are my own--give this book a try!**
About Shay ~
Lacy never moved from her native Ohio, except in her imagination. She
considered joining the Army, but thought marriage would be the bigger
challenge. She collects glass paperweights and rocks, and dreams of one day
owning the rock section of the Smithsonian’s Museum of Natural History. She's
an amateur photographer and an avid reader.

Thanks so much, Shay, for being my guest!! And thank you all for celebrating with us!
Have a fabulous day!
