Save your Breath- Melinda Leigh(Morgan Dane Series Book 6) #Book-Review

Synopsis:

When true-crime writer Olivia Cruz disappears with no signs of foul play, her new boyfriend, Lincoln Sharp, suspects the worst. He knows she didn’t leave willingly and turns to attorney Morgan Dane and PI Lance Kruger to find her before it’s too late.

As they dig through Olivia’s life, they are shocked to discover a connection between her current book research on two cold murder cases and the suicide of one of Morgan’s prospective clients.

As Morgan and Lance investigate, the number of suspects grows, but time is running out to find Olivia alive. When danger comes knocking at their door, Morgan and Lance realize that they may be the killer’s next targets.

My Thoughts:

Bittersweet moment as I write my final thoughts on this novel as well as the series. So much emotions going on right now. Excellent writing by Melinda Leigh. She had me staying up late at night. I’m not mad at all.

Book 6 was centered around the kidnapping of Olivia Cruz, Sharps’s girlfriend. The kidnapping was all kind of weird that left Sharp desperate to find her. He of course got help from Morgan, Lance, Lance mom, and Stella (Morgans sister) to solve this one. Every clue they’d got turned up to be a dead end. Sharp was miserable he and Olivia hadn’t really established anything between them but he knew he was miserable without her and he just had to find her. I was sad for him.

So many leads, something had to give them a clue. Lance and Morgan saved the day they did not only solve the kidnapping but also other mysteries.

The ending was very touching Sharp did something that made Morgan tear up and to tell you the truth I was moved. He did something that would make your heart melt. I’m also happy that Lance and Morgan will be together forever.

Overall well written series, I thoroughly enjoyed the novels. Melinda Leigh has a new fan. I will be looking out for her books. If you see them please tag me.

What’s next? I’m going to finish reading my book of the month mail haul….

Until Next Post…

Saturdays with Dee

I am an early riser on weekends. A fresh pot of coffee always put me in the mood to kick start my day.

Breakfast is usually Eggs 🍳, bacon 🥓 and toast 🍞.

Chores:

✔ Laundry

✔Cleaning my apartment

✔Grocery Shopping

✔ Bill Payments

✔ Shopping

The streets are always chaotic on a weekend, the malls are super busy and it’s funny I’m seeing Christmas decorations everywhere. I would love to get my gifts early this year.

Chores may vary dependent on the weather. I try my best to get as much done so that I can just relax for the rest of the day.

My favorite spot in the house is in my bedroom in my little chair by the window with my books in arms reach. This is where I spend most of the time until late at night. My books are keeping me sane these days and I’m happy I’ve started reading.

What’s your routine like on a weekend?

Secrets Never Die-Melinda Leigh (Morgan Dane Series Book#5) #BookReview

Synopsis:

When a retired sheriff’s deputy is shot to death in his home, his troubled teenage stepson, Evan, becomes the prime suspect. Even more incriminating, the boy disappeared from the scene of the crime.

Desperate to find her son, Evan’s mother begs PI Lance Kruger for help. She knows her son is innocent. Kruger and defense attorney Morgan Dane want to believe that too, but the evidence against the boy is damning. Just as the trail goes cold, another deputy vanishes. His shocking connection to Evan’s stepfather throws the investigation into chaos as Lance and Morgan fear the worst…that Evan is the killer’s new target.

With so many secrets to unravel, will Lance and Morgan find him before it’s too late?

My Thoughts:

I felt that the plot in this book took forever to come to fold. The suspense was still there, however. Morgan Dane and Lance got a very difficult case with lots of twists and turns, several secrets were unfolded, she continues to the same badass, defense attorney so much so to the detriment of colleagues she has to work with. The DA and Sheriff are not always pleased with how she continues to show up to their department’s shortcomings.

The characters are growing on me and I like the relationships that have developed over the series: Morgan and Lance, Sharp, and Olivia. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Cross Her Heart- Melinda Leigh #BookReview

Synopsis:

For more than twenty-five years, Philadelphia homicide detective Bree Taggert has tucked away the nightmarish childhood memories of her parents’ murder-suicide…Until her younger sister, Erin, is killed in a crime that echoes that tragic night: innocent witnesses and a stormy marriage that ended in gunfire. There’s just one chilling difference. Erin’s husband, Justin, has vanished.

Bree knows how explosive the line between love and hate can be, yet the evidence against her troubled brother-in-law isn’t adding up. Teaming up with Justin’s old friend, former sheriff’s investigator and K-9 handler Matt Flynn, Bree vows to uncover the secrets of her sister’s life and death, as she promised Erin’s children. But as her investigation unfolds, the danger hits close to home. Once again, Bree’s family is caught in a death grip. And this time, it could be fatal for her.

My Thoughts:

The solid storyline, captivating, and a page-turner. The book wasn’t predictable I enjoyed it thoroughly the characters were relatable and the plot was engaging.

Bree even though troubled with the sorrows of her past was given the task of solving her sisters murder. Her brother in law was the main suspect but he was no where to be found. Promising her sister she vows to bring the killer to justice. Bree got help from Matt her brother in laws friend who wanted to prove his innocence.

I loved how the characters worked together even in the face of danger. Bree is a total bad-ass and I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐….

What I’ve Done -Melinda Leigh (Morgan Dane Series Book #4) #BookReview

Synopsis:

Haley Powell wakes up covered in blood, with no memory of the night before. When she sees a man lying in the backyard, stabbed to death, she has only one terrified thought: What have I done?

Agreeing to take the case as a favor to her PI friend Lincoln Sharp, Morgan must scale a mountain of damning circumstantial and forensic evidence to prove her client innocent. Haley couldn’t appear more guilty: her bloodstained fingerprints are on the murder weapon, and she has no alibi. But Morgan can’t shake the feeling that this shocked young woman has been framed.

Someone out there is hell-bent on sabotaging her defense, targeting Morgan, her partner, and especially Haley. Someone who will stop at nothing—and whose next move will be deadly.

My Thoughts:

Morgan Dane is damn good. She’s very intuitive, methodical, and very hands-on. No matter what she gets down to business and she leaves no stones turned. Innocent until proven guilty. She ensures that everything is reviewed and that her clients have what is needed to get through their cases. This case was a tough one all the evidence pointed to her new client. She had taken this case as a favor to Sharpe. He’d been so good to her she wouldn’t say no. This case was like no other; they were very close to the truth and whoever was guilty was gonna make damn sure that Morgan and team didn’t find out. Their life along with their client was in danger!

My heart gasped a few times I didn’t want anything to happen to Morgan, Lance or Sharpe. Things got serious but Morgans quick response saved the day once more.

Melinda is good. One minute you’d think you would know who the killer was but nope, your wrong, lol, Morgan will find out who though…

Sophie’s character adds warmth and fuzziness to the story as well as the characters. Her relationship with Lance is so pure.

Good things happened things are looking up for #MorLan. Awesome book. Maybe my favorite of the series thus far.

My rating is ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

If you love a good suspense novel check out the series. Start at Book #1. The Romance is not bad it adds to the storyline and I’m not a romance novel kinda girl.
