What I Thought Of The Sunrise At Normandy Series?

I just loved this series by author Sarah Sundin. This series is made up of a trio fictional stories based on actual events. I loved how Sarah Sundin pulled the series together. She based the events  of each book around each Paxton brother. For example,  Book 1 was based on Lt. Wyatt Paxton, Book 2 was based on Lt. Adler Paxton and Book 3 was based on Private Clay Paxton.

The series was very interesting, intriguing, action packed and showed how the women helped the men battle why they were serving. I loved this series so much I hated to put it down. I also noticed that when I read this series I found 2 recurring themes. The themes I found were: Love and Forgiveness. For those of you who like romance books this series even has romance.  The best part of this series is everyone can read it—YEAH!! I hope you all pick this series up and read it.

My Recommendation, Will I Read Again & More

My Recommendation is to go buy, read & review this book. Just go read this series, I know you’ll like it. Yes, I will read this series again and my Rating for each book is 5+ and for this series is 5+.

Spawning Suspicion Paperback Review

Title Of Book: Spawning Suspicion

Format Of Book: Paperback

Book Series: A Seafood Capers Mystery

Book 2 of 2

Author Of Book: Maggie Toussaint

Amazon Excerpt Of Book

The death of island playboy Curtis Marlin doesn’t register on busy caterer River Holloway’s radar…that is, until her brother and his girlfriend are arrested for the former athlete’s murder. Certain of the pair’s innocence, the amateur sleuth sets out to investigate. Suspicion spreads like chocolate sauce when River questions the victim’s teammates. The suspects don’t appreciate her stirring up trouble, but she won’t let an election-hungry sheriff make her brother a sacrificial lamb.

But there’s more than murder on River’s to-do list. A missing groom, catered banquets, and River’s own wedding plans keep her hopping like a short order cook. And as the cherry on the sundae, she has a wild kitty to tame. Under mossy oaks and rustling palmettoes, fact and fiction blend in a mouthwatering romp of good eatin’ and yummy recipes. Spawning Suspicion is the second in Toussaint’sSeafood Capers Mystery Series.

My Honest Review Of The Book

Spawning Suspicion is a fun, intriguing, suspenseful, interesting, mysterious, action packed, page turner book with a touch of romance in it. Another thing I liked was the recipes in the book. I just loved this book. I know I know, I read book 2 first. So why did I do things this way? Probably because I won book 2 and now I have something to look forward to—to read book 1. I also loved how Maggie Toussaint worked the Cat in the story. How the Cat acts is well just like a typical Cat. I laughed and laughed as I read this book. I will say this too, how the book ended was tragic and thought there could be a third book in the series.

My Recommendation For The Book

My Recommendation for Spawning Suspicion is to go buy, read and review this clean book that everyone can read. I will read this book again and will hopefully get Book 1.
