"Fatal Inheritance" by Sandra Orchard

About this book:

  Someone wants to stop Becki Graw from claiming her inheritance. Police officer Joshua Rayne is just as determined to keep his beautiful neighbor safe. She may not be the tomboy Josh remembers, but she's just as stubborn. Becki is intent on keeping her grandparents' remote farmhouse—no matter the danger. Becki's feelings for her childhood crush may be rekindled, but she's seen too much to risk opening her heart. As the threats against Becki escalate, the list of suspects grows longer.

My personal Rating-
I thought it book was a really interesting one with all the details the author adds to every story she writes. There’s always a quirky part and this one would be Josh’s dog has only three legs and is named Tripod! Haha, I love it! There was no gore or icky stuff in this book, but still in the suspense genre, so it was quite nice! :)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

"Once Upon a Prince" by Rachel Hauck

About this book:

  “Susanna Truitt never dreamed of a great romance or being treated like a princess---just to marry the man she has loved for twelve years. But life isn't going according to plan. When her high-school-sweetheart-turned-Marine-officer breaks up instead of proposing, Susanna scrambles to rebuild her life.
  The last thing Prince Nathaniel expects to find on his American holiday to St. Simon's Island is the queen of his heart. A prince has duties, and his family's tense political situation has chosen his bride for him. When Prince Nathaniel comes to Susanna's aid under the fabled Lover's Oak, he is blindsided by love.
  Their lives are worlds apart. He's a royal prince. She's an ordinary girl. But everything changes when Susanna receives an invitation to Nathaniel's coronation. It's the ultimate choice. His kingdom or her heart? God's will or their own?”

My personal Rating-
{Add ½ star for older girls interested in royalty.}
In honor of the recent royal wedding, I decided to finally re-read this one and (hopefully) finish up the series this year.
“Once Upon a Prince” was still a cute one in my eyes, but there were many things I had forgotten since reading it over four years ago. It’s instant love/attraction, but not so lovey-dovey, which was nice. There also was much more faith content that I recalled, so that was a lovely surprise. I will admit that the royal politics boggled me down a bit when reading and there were a couple other comments could have been left out in my opinion, but overall, it’s a cute contemporary read. :)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!
