Whatever After/E.M. Tippetts

Synopsis:

    "Chloe’s got it all: a happy marriage to Hollywood A-lister, Jason Vanderholt, her first child on the way, and the chance to be the maid-of-honor in her best friend, Lori’s, upcoming wedding. The stresses of the past year are behind her… almost.

    Chris Winters, Chloe’s half-brother, still isn’t in jail, even though he’s the main suspect in a double homicide. The police don’t have enough hard evidence to charge him with the crime, but Chloe is certain it was him. After all, he tried to kill her when she was a child.

    When Chris begins to stalk Lori, Chloe is furious and decides it is past time he was locked up for good. She has the best security team money can buy, yet she knows they’re missing something, and mistakes in this business can be deadly. The deeper she digs, though, the less the facts add up.

    Chloe’s got mere weeks to figure out how to keep her best friend safe, save the wedding from disaster, and get Chris back in jail where he belongs. That is, if she can gather enough evidence before he strikes again."


Review: 

    This being the 5th book in it's series, answers questions we have been waiting for, yet leaves us with a new round of questions by the end. Which leaves us with hopefully book number 6 in the wings.
    Still the main focus is on keeping Chloe safe from her brother Chris who now is the focus of murder and stalking.
    Chloe is still as tough as ever, and will put her life and her unborn baby's life in a bit of peril by the end of this book.
    Friendship is the root of this story. How far will Chloe go to keep her best friend and her wedding safe?
    All of the characters are strong in their own right. I know I want their a happily ever after. I'm ready!

Condemn Me Not/Heather B. Moore


Synopsis:

    "Susannah North Martin, accused of witchcraft in 1692, joins five women in the Salem Jail, all sentenced to death for their crimes. Amidst tragedy, Susannah finds hope and compassion as she remembers a well-loved life, and readers discover that love reaches far beyond the grave as Susannah faces the magistrates in Salem."

Review: 

     Susannah in her old age has been condemned of Witch Craft. This book takes you from her early years, where she meets and falls in love with her new neighbor George. Then you find her in a prison cell at an old age, being put on trial for crimes she would not/could not commit.
     A love story is where Susannah's life begins, and that love stays with her even through her last days. That is what gets her through the trials she finds herself in.
     A truly real look into the life of a woman who had the courage to go to her death with her head held high, her thoughts on her family, and the peace that awaited her.
     Another great story taken from history!
