Heading: Love Never Wilted

In What Grows in the Garden by Stacy-Deanne, Elle Baron loved Harper Sobieski for as long as she could remember. To her there would be wedding bells and an extension to their family, however, when Harper moved away Elle found herself in utter wonderment. Life had to move on and years go by, and then Harper comes back. For Elle, wrapping her mind around him being there meant she would have to address the feelings she had for him. Most importantly, why did Harper come back?

Harper is back in his hometown of Sunset, Texas. When he first left Sunset and all his family and friends behind it was nothing that anyone had done. He was all about being successful and wealthy. However, love does not always come with money, especially when Harper left behind the love of his life. Now that he has returned home he wants more than ever to have Elle back in his arms. Will Harper find a way to get back into Elle’s heart?

Stacy-Deanne’s novella is perfect lunch hour story. All the parts are necessary to move the story along, no fluff to extend the word count. What Grows in the Garden is a story that made me reflect on the important things in any relationship. I recommend this story to anyone looking for a quick romantic read.

Amazon: 4
Words Mosaic: 4.5

Heading: Who Did It?

The gang is together again in Stacy-Deanne’s Disturbed, the third installment in the Bruised series. Detective Winston Lewis is not a stranger to investigating a crime and using the evidence to make an arrest. Winston is a detective first and foremost, so doing his job correctly is tested when the evidence points at a friend and fellow detective. The thing that makes it worse, Winston has some feelings building up toward Detective Lisa Swanson, the suspect of murder. The problem for the two of them is more than just the investigation, Jake, Lisa’s boyfriend might have an issue with Winston pining over his woman. Can Winston control himself and respect Lisa and Jake’s relationship?

Lisa cannot believe what is happening to her. She knows she did not kill Devon Barnes, but she did not know who was out to get her. While trying to fight for her freedom, she is battling with Winston’s advancement. She tries talking to her best friend, Detective Dee Quarter, but something is bothering Dee and she is snappy. Then Lisa has Jake ready and wanting to take their relationship to next level. With so much going on in her life, will Lisa be able to keep her sanity?

Disturbed is an interracial, romantic suspense. The entire series is filled with crime and romance that brings additional tension to the story. Stacy-Deanne has a way with her characters. They battle with real-life hardships and still try to stay professional and focused. There were a few editing mistakes; however it did not take away from the story. I recommend this quick read to anyone looking an e-book mystery romance.

I received a .pdf copy of the book for review purposes.
