Echoes of Edinburgh by JoAnn Durgin

Blurb:

To honor her dying father’s wish, Chicago stockbroker Shelby Harmon promises to hand deliver an envelope addressed to “Robert Nichols, Personal & Confidential.” Her quest to find Robert leads her to a most unlikely place—the Castlehill Gardens outside Scotland’s Edinburgh Castle. Who is this fiercely private man and what is his connection to Harmony Lane, her family’s horse farm in Lexington, Kentucky? Harrison Reed cautions Shelby against dredging up hurtful memories for his close friend, Robert. As they explore the city together, Shelby and Harrison find themselves increasingly drawn to one another. When the contents of the mysterious envelope are revealed, the answer gives her hope for the future of Harmony Lane. Is the time spent in Edinburgh with Harrison destined to be nothing more than a beautiful memory? Did Shelby lose her heart in Edinburgh...or find her way home again?

Daed Ringer by VB Tenery

Blurb:
Mercy Lawrence is terrified.

Bermuda airport facial recognition software has identified her as missing runway star, Traci Wallace. Despite Mercy’s protests, Traci’s husband, ex-CIA agent Thomas Wallace, is convinced Mercy is the mother of his ill six-year-old son. With only his son’s welfare in mind, he abducts Mercy and takes her to a private island to care for the boy.

But Mercy soon discovers there are men much more dangerous than a father desperate to save his son. Her doppelganger has made deadly enemies—a relentless team of killers who now want her dead.

When Thomas is lured into a covert mission to rescue a CIA asset and uncover a government mole, Mercy is left isolated and alone—and Thomas finds himself stranded on foreign soil with a compromised mission and a wounded agent. Fighting against a rogue nation’s timetable for launching a nuclear strike, he has to escape Saudi Arabia alive and rescue Mercy and his son before assassins finish the job they started.

Deadly Communications Blurb: Improving communication skills is never easy. In this case, it could be murder! Maven Morris is a speech-language pathologist on medical leave–or as she likes to put it: out to pasture.

Now, she must find the courage to seek justice no matter who gets hurt–even if it’s her.

My Review: This is a lovely, gripping story about what we Brits call a speech therapist. Maven, a beautiful but unusual name, which is exactly right for our heroine. I've never read a book with this profession as the lead character, but it's brilliant. It has characters that live through the pages and a mystery that drags the reader in and keeps them hooked. A real page turner.

New Release - TURNED

Blurb: Turned upside down by misadventure. Amy Childs is running late for a party, when she makes an illegal U turn, and hits a pedestrian—the brother of one of the most corrupt men in town. Now her brush with the law has her running for her life from those who want retribution.
Torn apart by tragedy. Detective Sgt Dane Philips lost his wife two years ago to a serial killer. He’s juggled work and his two daughters ever since, but can no longer cope. A live in nanny seems the solution. He knows he shouldn’t hire someone without references, but he needs a nanny and Amy needs a job. Perhaps it’s an answer to prayer.
But for all of them, the nightmare is only beginning as the events take a sinister turn. And only a miracle can save them all from destruction.
tagline: Three lives torn apart by tragedy and one more turned upside down by misadventure, only a miracle can save them all from total destruction.

and on a personal note...

I finally managed to update the website :) Being hopelessly tech impaired, when my ISP upgraded their CCGI servers, where I host all my photos, I found myself unable to upload the 18 or so book covers I needed to add. (How many???)

Anyway, emails and tweets and help questions went back and forth for several weeks. Then yesterday, they rang and talked me through it. :)

So now this page is up to date - http://www.revell124.plus.com/clarerevell/books.htm

brb - washings finished and need to hang it on the line. OK, back. Just hope it doesn't rain because I have limited inside drying space and another two loads to go.
