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.

Bruised Book Review

Title: Bruised by Stacy Deanne

5 stars

Heading: Dark Secrets

Detectives Lisa Swanson and Dee Quarter beginning Stacy Deanne’s Bruised are being handed their next murder case. The obvious suspect would be Jake Jenson, the person who found his good friend, Ernest Juarez in a way that a person with a good heart would not wish to see anyone. However, when the detectives assess the situation they question whether or not Jake could truly be the murderer they are searching for.

Jake is determined to find out who killed his best friend, but at the same time he is trying to catch the heart of tough Lisa. Lisa is dealing with some personal issues that stem from a past relationship. She has her heart guarded. Jake is not a man to give up on a quest, however, when she touches a nerve deep within him, he questions if she is even worth it.

Crimes, passion, and mysterious surprises are the words that best describe Bruised. Stacy is a talented writer and clearly studied what it takes to solve a crime. I thought I knew who the killer was, but it wasn’t until a few pages from the end I realized how wrong I was. This is a quick and entertaining read, especially the banter back and forth between Jake and the lady detective. If mystery and romance are the genres you enjoy Stacy Deanne will not disappoint you.
