Sins of the Past - Romantic Suspense Novella Collection

Secrets and Lies. Danger That Will Never Go Away. Join Three Beloved Masters of Romantic Suspense for Novellas Where the Past Will Not Stay Buried.

The three ladies that wrote this book are some of my favorite suspense authors, so I had to jump at the chance to read this novella. I was not disappointed! All the stories were fantastic and held my attention.
I was so excited to read a bit about the McKenna family history in Dani Pettrey's novella. What a fun opportunity to see into their past and how the adventurous qualities of the parents were passed down to the children. This was probably one of my favorite of the three.

I also enjoyed Blackout by Lynette Eason in which Macey is slowly remembering an accident and the surrounding events of that night. But someone is not wanting her to remember, and someone is. She is facing danger from an unknown source and the suspense grows as her memories return.

One thing that I don't particularly like about novellas is that it seems like they fall in love overnight but in these books for the most part that did not necessarily happen. The couples had known each other for years even if they were not romantically involved or the romance was slow blossoming, or there was a spark, but they took their time getting to know each other. I enjoyed that. The mystery and suspense was appealing with plenty of twists.

I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to review the book positively.

Dee Henderson - "Missing"A Wyoming sheriff is called to Chicago when his elderly mother goes missing from her retirement community. Paired with a savvy Chicago cop, the two soon launch into a race against the clock when they realize something dark may lie at the heart of the disappearance. 

Dani Pettrey - "Shadowed"Adventure, romance, and danger collide when a young Alaskan fisherman nets the body of a Russian open water swimming competitor. Another swimmer, who'd been the dead woman's roommate years ago, is pulled into the search for answers as it grows more and more clear that something sinister is at play.

Lynette Eason - "Blackout"A young woman once implicated in a robbery gone wrong finds herself at risk years later when the real culprit is up for parole. The loot taken that night has never been found and he believes she knows where it's hidden--only her memory of that night has always been unreliable. Can she remember enough to find her way to safety?
