"Shannon Tanner has it all, a perfect family, perfect job, perfect boyfriend-or so she thinks. What Shannon doesn't know is that her boyfriend, Mark, is stealing money from her father and making millions doing it. When Shannon learns Mark's secret, he turns on her, and Shannon's life abruptly goes from perfect to perilous.
In an effort to protect Shannon, the FBI assigns their only female agent to go undercover as her personal bodyguard. But when the agent gets injured the day before the assignment, they turn to the next best thing: their top agent, Rick Holden-in a dress.
Life seems safe again for Shannon with Rick by her side and Mark apparently gone for good. Then Shannon gets word that her best friend has been kidnapped, and it becomes clear Mark isn't going to stop any time soon. Shannon realizes the only way to save herself and her friend-and stop Mark once and for all-is by sending Rick, her only source of protection, away. Can Rick save Shannon before it's too late?"
I love reading a good mystery/love story! I only had to read a page and a half and I had a hard time putting it down. I have to say I felt awkward along with Rick when he was undercover, but also felt the funny side of it coming from Shannon's point of view. The love that surrounds Shannon is one that others would envy. When Mark shows up, Shannon adds him to her list of loved ones, but she never expected his betrayal.
Tristi put every kind of emotion you can think of and peppered you with them throughout the book. She pulled me in and kept me reading until the very last page, That is all a reader could ask for.
Tristi also has other books out. One is called "Secret Sisters" which I will soon be reading. So show her your love and read her books! :)

"Chloe Winter's is a normal girl who is working her way through college, and has big plans to become a forensic scientist. When Jason Vanderholt a famous actor returns to his roots to film his newest movie, he runs into Chloe who reminds him of someone he knew in high school. He soon finds out the reason why she looks familiar and the truth slowly comes to the fore front.
Chloe must find a way to overcome the ghosts of her past when she is again faced with the same danger from her childhood. Jason can only stand by and give her the support she needs until she finally realizes it doesn't have to be someone else's fairytale, but her own."
I had to go in to reading this book with caution, the reason being is that E.M. Tippets likes to take me by surprise when I read her books. I never know how the story is going to end. When reading other novels you can usually predict what will happen and who will end up with who. Not with Emily's books. She takes you in one direction then out of no where there is a U-turn.
That is what I love most about her writing. Keeps me on my toes, but always ends up where the story needs to be. Someone Else's Fairytale is my favorite of her books........so far! It had love, hate, heartache, friendship, mystery and intrigue. Something important I learned was we shouldn't stand by watching others fairytales come true, we need to begin our own. What better time then the present!!
I am excited to see where she takes these characters in other books. When asked she said she is for sure going to write more about them, but it will be a while, since she is working on another book at the moment. I can't wait so see what she has in store for us next!
