Autumn Anthology Review

I was provided this anthology for my review and was not paid.  These are my honest opinions!

A Hound Dog Named Elvis by Heather Horrocks

A Chick Flick Clique story
All about how Kaitlyn and Joshua work their way back into each other's good graces after a silly breakup.  It's always funny to read about how good looking they still find the other person, and how they still ahve that connection.  It just amazes me that people break up, because of a misunderstanding.  I think talking really is the best idea, and then if you want to break up still, go for it.  Obviously that's not always an option, but talking always seems to work in romance books.  :)  Seriously though, Elvis and Priscilla sound like super fun hound dogs!  There's a little suspense, although you know who's threatening her the whole time.

Eye for an Eye by Stephanie Black

Mallory cleans a building early every morning in order to pay for her schooling, and of course there's a hottie that works there.  He thinks she's pretty good-looking too.  This one is more about the mystery than the romance.  She had a friend named Nelson in high school that went off the deep end and did drugs and killed her mom and then he was killed in a prison riot.  She felt bad about it, so she wrote his sister.  Then crazy stuff started to happen.  Her sister and brother-in-law (that she lives with) decide that she's a druggie, because they found drugs in her house.  Luckily she found a pretty good guy in the hottie-Darien, and he helps her through the madness that is her tormenter.  Yikes!  Edge of your seat kind of story!

First Heist by Heather B. Moore

An Omar Zagouri Novella

This is almost all suspense!  Mia is a spy, but finds she's nowhere near as good as the guy she's watching.  There are swear words.  Just know this book isn't for kiddos.  Mia and Omar have to work together to rescue Greek artifacts before their world comes crashing down, but that can't be it, there has to be more, right?  Right!

Letter for Two by Sarah M. Eden

Sophia and Ethan.  This was one of my favorites!  They live in a bungalow, one on each side and are constantly getting their mail mixed up, so they have a daily "meeting" at 5:30 to go through the mail together.  One day they find a very old letter addressed to someone they don't know.  They work on the mystery together and with the help of an awesome neighbor.  Such a sweet story!  I loved their conversations!

Silver Cascade Secrets by Rachelle J. Christensen

Jillian and Travis meet by chance, because she is a gardener at the park and he lost his keys while playing with his niece.  They talk to find out that they are more connected than they know.  She as to decide between Caleb (her boyfriend) and Travis.  Not a hard choice.  His brother-in-law was killed and she may just have the key to finding out who did it and why!  I think this one is a fun story, and I was surprised by the end!

Chocolate Obsessed by Annette Lyon

Whitney is awesome with chocolate, but so is Stephen.  Stephen keeps beating her in competitions, so she really doesn't like him.  But, as they have to work together a scary stalker guy approaches her and Stephen steps in as the knight in shining armor!  You know who the bad guy is, but you don't know what he's trying to accomplish!  Great story!  I love the ones where they find they have a ton in common and already like each other, but didn't really know!
