Jordan and Ty are finally together, as in living together—mortgage and all. Now they intend to enjoy a little down time. They’ve purchased an aging horse ranch with plans to renovate, but their domestic bliss is put on hold when Ty is called in to investigate a murder case.

Coincidentally, an unusually graphic nightmare about a young college student’s murder catches Jordan by surprise. In the dream, Jordan can see the girl’s pretty blonde hair. She can see the snowy ravine the girl was strangled in. Most shockingly, this time she can even see the killers face.

Being at home and still on vacation is making it challenging to figure out how to connect with this latest victim, until Jordan visits Ty’s precinct and recognizes a young man in interrogation as the murderer.

When Ty insists the suspect is innocent, Jordan debates just how far into Ty’s career she can interfere. Influencing another cop’s investigation on the basis of a dream is a line she’s never dared to cross. Even if the other cop is the man she loves.

Making the situation all the more frustrating is the sexy, red-headed Isobel Riley from Missouri Highway Patrol who is partnering with Ty for the duration of the case. And Isobel is a lot more than a mere detective consultant—she’s Ty’s ex-lover.

RELEASE BLAST/BOOK REVIEW/GIVEAWAY – Wishes for Christmas – Fern Michaels

Wishes for Christmas

4 STARS!

This book is broken into 3 parts.  They each tell their own story, but there is some connection of characters along the way.  I found the first part to be hard to follow, but the 2nd two parts were good and had a nice story to each of them.

And the Angels Sing
This part of the book isn’t exactly easy to follow.  I think there’s a lot of backstory in previous books about a Sisterhood, that probably have you knowing about each character, but in this particular one, they are a group of middle aged to older women and men who refer to each other as “Sisters” and “the boys”.  They team up to help Maggie do a good deed for something she feels guilty about doing or not doing in the past.  They track down a former teacher of Maggie’s and set about making her dreams come true through helping the less fortunate.

Naughty or Nice
This part centers around Teresa Amelia Loudenberry, Toots to her family and friends. and around those near and dear to her.  They are preparing for Charleston’s annual holiday showcase of historical homes.  When something arises surrounding one of the decorators working on her daughter’s home, they all rally around to help out and find some answers for this woman and her 3 kids.

A Golden Tree
This part centers around Holly Simmons and her families Inn.  She hires on a temporary assistant to help with the holiday rush.  Both of their grandfathers have recently gone to live at the Haven, where strange things are happening.  We see Toots and her friend Sophie pop up in this book to help investigate the Haven.

BOOK BLURB:

Perfect for fans of Kristan Higgins and Robyn Carr, this sexy yet sweet military romance reunites a headstrong dancer and a rugged army soldier after one steamy encounter tears them apart.

As a dancer who creates mesmerizing visions onstage, Neve James is looking for the same kind of stability in her love life. Her pen pal, Rory McRoy, is on leave from deployment in Afghanistan, so she heads to Boston to surprise him. After corresponding for months as part of a “Support Our Troops” initiative—and exchanging dozens of “Read When You’re Alone” letters—Neve knows what Rory likes, and she intends to fulfill his every fantasy. But all they get are a few blissful moments together before they’re interrupted by a woman claiming to be Rory’s fiancée.

Rory has fallen hard for Neve’s letters. When he finally meets her in person, he has to have her, right then and there—until Neve takes off in a fit of anger. Forced to return to Afghanistan before he can fix things between them, Rory waits four agonizing months to prove that he’s not the man Neve thinks he is. But by the time he arrives in New York, she’s already made up her mind. Luckily, Rory never backs down from a challenge, and he’s prepared to put everything on the line for love.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:

“Don’t make that face around me. People will think I died,” Neve said, her beautiful green eyes opened slightly, her voice scratchy, little more than a whisper. She winced when she swallowed. “Water.”
He lifted the cup from her bedside table, elevated the head of her hospital bed, and guided the straw to her mouth. So many of his friends had died, but not Neve, thank God. “Nate ran out for coffee.”
“What day is it?” she asked, her voice a little stronger.
“Monday.”
She went to move her arm with the IV in it and winced. Then she lifted her other hand and rubbed her face. “I’ve been out of it for two whole days.”
Rory nodded. “Pretty much.”
As if just realizing something, she went still, then looked up at him with a questioning look: “Why are you still here?”
Because Neve had become such an integral part of his life, during such a difficult time in his life, and he didn’t want to lose her over some misunderstanding. She’d become his best female friend. He appreciated her perspective on things, valued her opinion, and enjoyed their interactions, especially the very intimate sharing of naughty letters and sexual likes and dislikes. He could talk to her about anything. And as much as he didn’t want to lose a friendship that had become very special to him, he also wanted more of what had happened between them in the storeroom of his parents’ pub. And he couldn’t stop thinking about it, couldn’t stop thinking about her.
They needed time to talk so they could move past Mary, who was not now and had never been his fiancée, so they could figure out what happened next, where they fit into each other’s lives now that he’d returned home for good. And they couldn’t very well work all that out until she woke up.
But he didn’t tell her any of those things. Instead he decided he’d much rather get a rise out of her, spark some life back into her, so he leaned in close, stared directly into her sleepy eyes, and whispered back, “You promised next time I could have you naked in a bed and take all the time I want.” He leaned in closer, almost to her ear, hating the stink of bleached hospital sheets and sickness, wishing she smelled of the enticing perfume she’d used to scent her erotically charged letters. “And here you are, in a bed, wearing nothing but a flimsy gown, which is close enough to naked for me. Now that you’re up, whaddya say we get to it?”
“Really, Rory.” She let out an annoyed huff. “Propositioning a woman in the hospital, hoping she’s so delirious with fever she’ll agree to have sex with you, is the sign of a truly pathetic, desperate man.”
Not just any woman. He turned his head so she wouldn’t see his smile, so happy to have her back. “I can wait until your fever comes down.” He pulled over the chair he’d been sitting in, lowered himself into it, and put his feet up on the foot of her bed. “It’s the gentlemanly thing to do. Besides, I’m in no rush.”

REPOSTING MY JULY 28th REVIEW:

4 STARS!

Steamy!!

Neve Jaimes is a 24 year old gymnastics instructor/Adiago dancer living in New York.  She gets the idea to be a Pen Pal to an army soldier from her best friend Brooke.  She reaches out to 23 year old Rory McRoy who is from Boston and is currently deployed to Afghanistan.  They begin to exchange letters and emails filled with tidbits about themselves, encouragement for each other as they go through this situation or that, and lots of flirting and hot sexy talk!

Rory gets leave, comes to visit Neve, and after a sexy encounter, somethings happen that make Neve think that Rory has been lying to her for months and has a fiance waiting for him.  She cuts off ties and refuses to hear anything he has to say or talk to him again.

A few months later, Rory is done with his time in the Army and immediately comes looking for Neve to try to get her to listen to him about what happened.  She’s still mad and refusing to talk, but then collapses and has to be rushed to the hospital.  Rory sticks by her side while there, so she eventually agrees to hear his side of the story once she’s awake and she forgives him for the misunderstanding and allows him to stay and help her recover once she goes home.

They have a couple of months enjoying life together while she recuperates, and then she wants to go off and have her life changing experiences that she’s been planning for.  Will they come back together and share a future?  Read the book to find out!
