Sins of the Past Review

You all know how I love to read and last weekend I got a new book to review from Bethany House. A bonus was that there were three novella's from a couple of my all time favorite authors. It was a win-win situation! They were all fast reads and just such great plots.  Let me share their descriptions of the stories and my honest opinion.

Dani Pettrey is an author I only discovered in the last year or two, but I love her stories because most of them are set in Alaska.  Her characters are rich and believable as well as charming.  You know I fell in love with Alaska years ago, but only got to visit there three years ago.  Dani takes you into the surroundings and keeps you captivated by the unfolding suspenseful storyline.  
Shadowed by Dani Pettrey
Dani Pettrey returns to Yancey, Alaska, introducing readers to the parents of her beloved McKenna clan. 
Adventure, romance, and danger collide when a young fisherman nets the body of a open water swimming competitor and possible Russian defector. Turning to a college friend of the woman, the two begin to try and solve her death.

I have been a long time fan of Dee Henderson and have read all of her series. She always kept me on the edge of my seat and I loved her stories.  However, her last book wasn't quite up to par, so it was wonderful to see her writing closer to what she started out with.  I always felt like her characters were family or friends and the plots were mysterious.  This story is the same; kept me going until the very end with twists and turns. Well done, Dee.
Also featuring Missing by Dee Henderson — Wyoming sheriff is called to Chicago when his elderly mother goes missing. Paired with a savvy Chicago cop, the two realize her disappearance is no accident, and a race against the clock begins.
I was not familiar with Lynette Eason stories before, but I enjoyed this story equally.  I could identify with the characters and loved the romance that weaved through the storyline.  I will definitely be looking for more of her books.
And Blackout by Lynette Eason — the story of a woman once implicated in a robbery gone wrong. The loot has never been found–but her memory of that night has always been unreliable. Can she remember enough to find her way to safety when the true culprit comes after her?
I would highly recommend this book!  I received it without any compensation, from Bethany House, for my honest review.
I would give this book a 5 star rating.
