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…

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.

The Last Goodbye – Melinda Leigh (Book #2 Morgan Dane Series) #BookReview

Synopsis:

Source: Good Reads

Young mother Chelsea Clark leaves the house for a girls’ night out…and vanishes. Her family knows she would never voluntarily leave her two small children. Her desperate husband—also the prime suspect—hires Morgan to find his wife and prove his innocence.

As a single mother, Morgan sympathizes with Chelsea’s family and is determined to find her. She teams up with private investigator Lance Kruger. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier their investigation gets. When Morgan is stalked by a violent predator, everything—and everyone—she holds dear is in grave danger.

Now, Morgan must track down a deranged criminal to protect her own family…but she won’t need to leave home to find him. She’s his next target.

My Thoughts:

Melinda Leigh takes us on another roller coaster ride into this suspense series where a young mother Chelsea Clarke goes missing and the husband Tim Clarke desperate to find her , hires Sharps PI Firm. Morgan and Lance have formed the dynamic duo after solving the major case in Book 1 which was all over the news.

Morgan and Lance used all their tactic to solve the case while occasionally stepping on the Sheriff’s toes. Lance the with the skills he learnt while on the force and Morgan a former prosecutor was very intuitive. The plot took me by surprise when they thought the case was over they had found Chelsea but Morgan still knew that something was an amiss the killer was now hunting her. They came up with a plan which was pretty dangerous but managed not only to solve the kidnapping of the young mother but other missing persons from the town. I loved how the writer maintained the suspense and built on the budding romance that was developing between Lance and Morgan who finally shared their feelings for ea other. I look forward to seeing where their relationship is going and for them solving more mysteries in their little hometown.

I gave this book 5️⃣ ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ it has maintained my interest and I am very curious to see what’s next…grab a copy Say You’re Sorry-Melinda Leigh or sign up for Unlimited Kindle as a Prime Day Deal. 3 months free pay in January 2021 $9.99 just search Amazon and follow the instructions.

Book #3 Morgan Dane series – Melinda Leigh

Say You’re Sorry – Melinda Leigh( Book#1 Morgan Dane Series) (#BookReview)

Synopsis:

After the devastating loss of her husband in Iraq, Morgan Dane returns to Scarlet Falls, seeking the comfort of her hometown. Now, surrounded by family, she’s finally found peace and a promising career opportunity—until her babysitter is killed and her neighbor asks her to defend his son, Nick, who stands accused of the murder.

Tessa was the ultimate girl next door, and the community is outraged by her death. But Morgan has known Nick for years and can’t believe he’s guilty, despite the damning evidence stacked against him. She asks her friend Lance Kruger, an ex-cop turned private eye, for help. Taking on the town, the police, and a zealous DA, Morgan and Lance plunge into the investigation, determined to find the real killer. But as they uncover secrets that rock the community, they become targets for the madman hiding in plain sight.

My Thoughts:

This book was nothing short of amazing. I was thoroughly engulfed in ever page. I wanted more; I got more. I was there with the characters I felt their emotions as they solved the mysteries in the town. The characters Morgan and Lance we’re my favorites honorable mention was her daughter, 3 yr old Sophie.

Morgan had lost her husband, father of her three kids. She was now living back home with her grandfather in Scarlett Falls. She restled with the idea that she was still grieving her husband and wanting to go on with her life being a good mom to her kids. She was a good prosecutor and felt after two years it was time to pick up the pieces.

Things took a turn when her next-door neighbor was accused of murdering her babysitter – Tessa. Morgan was not convinced that he could have done something like that seeing that Nick sometimes babysat her daughters and played chess with her grandfather. Nick father strapped for cash didn’t know what he was going to do he knew his son was innocent. Morgan decided to represent Nick, yea a prosecutor now a defense attorney.

She reaches out to her old friend Lance to try and solve the mystery that also caused a divide in the community. Her neighbors felt she was a traitor representing a would be rapist and murder. They did such a good job not just solving that crime but all the other town secrets. They made a dynamic duo, I loved their storyline and the budding romance that eventually developed. I won’t say much but I was swooning away at #MORLAN 😊. I don’t like romance novels but the little I got I appreciated. It’s a good read and I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

I give it 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ unto the next in the series.
