Miss Demeanor, P.I. Series Blog Tour & Giveaway!

P.I. I Love You
Miss Demeanor P.I. Book 1
by Joanne Jaytanie
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Mystery, Adventure
Rivers don’t let rocks hold them back. River Nightingale has decided to
blow past the rocky men in her life.
She’s played by the rules for too long—especially when it came to her
career as a cop. She was the top closer of cases for years, but
promotions in her small town cop shop went to her less productive
male counterparts. River decides it’s time to change careers. She
leaves her small town to purchase a Seattle private detective agency
and become her own boss.
Homicide Detective Gage Hamlin takes pride in his job; he closes cases and
fosters justice. All that changed the day River Nightingale sauntered
into his office. River has him questioning his pride, his cases, and
his aversion to private detectives, especially beautiful private
detectives.
River’s client thinks Gage got it wrong, and River is forced to prove Gage
missed a murder. Will River and Gage find a way to play nice, or will
River be forced to leave Gage behind?
Twice As Bad
Miss Demeanor, P.I. Book 2
For private investigator River Nightingale, the stakes are high, and her
losses are twice as bad.
River has already lost a partner to a better job, and now a truck has mowed
down another partner and a key informant. Her surviving crew is
reeling and dead set on finding the killer. Working with them is a
Seattle PD homicide detective, Gage Hamlin. Gage and River have been
a volatile combination since day one, but now it’s twice as tense,
as they both seek the killer and Gage struggles to keep River alive.
On the waterfront, Seattle is known for slinging fish, but River’s
stakeout of a seafood plant reveals that fish aren’t the only thing
being sold on the docks. And if River isn’t careful, fish aren’t
the only thing that will end up dead on the docks.
Looming dangers lurk closer with every clue River uncovers. River’s
business, her relationship, her friends, and her life are all in
jeopardy. And the cost of solving the case is at least twice as bad
as usual.

Unraveled by Lindsay Buroker (Heritage of Power Series, #4) – 4 Star Review!

51JNebK7gOLStory Rating: ****
Cover Rating: A

This fourth volume of The Heritage of Power series was full of action – and definitely a lot of intrigue. It kept me guessing the entire time, wondering things like what was going to happen with Trip’s sire’s legacy, what weird enemies awaited them around the next corner, and when things were going to heat up again between Trip and Rysha.

The only reason the book didn’t get a five star review because there were two parts where I had push myself to keep reading. The effort was wholly worthwhile, however, because the book quickly drew me back in. I’m eager to find out what might happen in the fifth book, since I felt the fourth could have wrapped the story up. I’m sure the next volume will be just as fantastic as everything else by Buroker.

The cover is eye-catching and gives an accurate description of what readers should expect from the story. It also fits well with the previous covers in the Heritage of Power series.

Origins by Lindsay Buroker (Heritage of Power, #3) – 5 Star Review!

Cover Rating: A

Wow… just wow. This book definitely threw a lot of surprises my way and did not go any way like I imagined it to… but I really love a book that can keep me guessing. Full of action, adventure, and intrigue, Buroker has done it again with this third volume of The Heritage of Power series.

Also, love the dynamics between Rysha and Trip in this one. You’re constantly wondering if they’ll be together or they won’t, then they are, but they aren’t, and then they definitely are. Like I said, a lot of surprises in this one.

The cover is eye-catching and gives an accurate portrayal of what readers might find inside the pages.

Revelations by Lindsay Buroker (Heritage of Power, #2) – 5 Star Review!

51jBwl8ZKkL._SY346_.jpgStory Rating: *****
Cover Rating: A

Wow, this book had a lot of tension and a lot of action. The book kept me up late and made me want to avoid work just so I could finish it. (I did end up finishing the entire book in about a day.) The quest offers plenty of road blocks and the fighting scenes that accompany it, with each fighting sequence being unique and exciting enough the reader won’t grow bored.

There is an increase in tension between Trip and Rysha – and just when you think they might finally get together (several times through the book), they don’t. I enjoyed both of their internal struggles, which helped push the external story forward.

The cover is eye-catching and gives readers an accurate depiction of what the story holds.

Dragon Storm by Lindsay Buroker (Heritage of Power Series, #1) – 4 Star Review!

51wnXf51oCL._SY346_.jpgStory Rating:****
Cover Rating: B

I fell in love with Lindsay Buroker after reading her Agents of the Crown series, and decided to follow up with another series – and Heritage of Power looked to be the most interesting. That being said, I found the beginning of the book hard to get into. I put it down a few times so I could push myself to move on. I’m very glad I did.

Although the beginning of the book is a bit dull, the rest is action-packed. The characters are realistic and I love their names! Buroker has quite the talent for creating unique, whimsical names that seem to fit her characters perfectly. I love Rysha. She’s an athletic, tomboy book nerd who adds a bit of “heart” to her logic. Trip is a kind of goofy oddball who just doesn’t fit in – something I totally relate to!

There is considerable sexual tension and internal conflict intertwined with the external overlying plot. All in all, this was a good start to what I hope is another amazing series by Buroker. Definitely recommend and suggest pushing past the first half-chapter or so to get to the good stuff!

The cover is moderately eye-catching and accurately portrays what the reader should expect to happen in the book. I feel the characters portrayed are more or less what I expect them to look like, although I imagined Trip slightly different.

Enchanters’ End Game by David Eddings (The Belgariad, #5) – 5 Star Review!

51VuM7FndqL._SX302_BO1,204,203,200_.jpgStory Rating: *****
Cover Rating: B

Eddings wraps up this series beautifully in Enchanter’s End Game (and simultaneously sets the scene for the following series, The Mallorean). It is another action-packed book that intricately works the internal workings/struggles of his characters into the overlying plot. The book keeps the reader turning the page to find out what happens next, and wraps up the story with no loose endings. Somehow, however, Eddings manages to leave openings in the plot (without it being loose ends) that allow the reader to still be intrigued to follow-up with The Mallorean.

The cover is moderately eye-catching and gives an accurate depiction of what readers should expect from the story. (Please note: The cover I am reviewing is the mass market paperback cover I own. There are other covers for other editions of this book.)

Castle of Wizardry by David Eddings (the Belgariad, #4) – 5 Star Review!

91NiCUgrNoL.jpgStory Rating: *****
Cover Rating: B

This is the part where all the loose ends start to add up, and they do so amidst pages filled with non-stop action. Where the previous books were action-packed but focused more on character development, this fourth volume shows fully-developed characters thrown into the midst of one treacherous situation after another. Yet still, even four books into the series, Eddings has quite a few surprises in store for readers.

The cover is moderately eye-catching and offers an accurate description of what readers should expect from the story. (Please note: the cover being rated is the mass market paperback version that I own. There are numerous other editions with their own unique covers.)
