  • Fabulous, Exciting, Romantic - Great Read

    Goodness, I do love the Mad Morelands. I love their quirky, fun-loving, happy family filled with strong, intelligent, courageous females and the men who are enlightened enough to let them soar. I also love their ‘odd’ talents that get them into as much trouble as it gets them out of. In this book, we step outside our regular set of Morelands and enjoy the story of Tom Quick (business partner of Con Moreland) and Desiree Malone of the Magnificent Malones. We might even have met the male leads in the next book or two – at least I hope so because I liked them very much! We’ve met and gotten to know Tom Quick through several books. The Morelands rescued him when he was just a young boy, but he had already been through more than any ten children should have to endure in a lifetime. He had no idea who his parents were nor how to came to be living with a gang run by Falk. Tom was forced to be a pick-pocket and he knew he’d end up dead or jailed at some point. Then, Falk directed him to pick the pocket of Reed Moreland – and was caught. Reed, however, didn’t turn him in – he rescued him. To Tom Quick, the Morelands can do no wrong – they are on the highest of pedestals. So then, just imagine his outrage and anger when a woman who had broken into his office explains who she is and how she came to be – and not only her, but her two brothers as well. Desiree Malone, her twin brother Wells, and their older brother, Brock weren’t exactly orphans, but they had been abandoned by their mother and her lover when they were just babes. A friend of their mother took them in, but as circus performers, they didn’t always have enough to make ends meet, so they were often loaned out to Falk who used them to do jobs perfectly suited to their unique set of talents. Then, they finally ended up in Falk’s gang full time and it was a miserable existence. Desiree has always wanted to know who her father was. She didn’t really want to do anything about it, she just wanted to know. That need-to-know has been getting stronger and stronger over the last few months. When Falk approaches her again and tells her that he will disclose her father’s name to her if she will break into the offices of Moreland and Quick Detective Agency and ‘retrieve’ a document for him. What can it hurt? She knows Falk is probably lying, but she can’t see a reason not to do as he asks. Then, she is caught! Uh-Oh! How did that happen? She had just been distracted by the evidence she’d just uncovered – evidence of the name of her father. When Desiree escapes from Tom, he quickly tracks her down and demands to know what she was looking for and why. Once she tells him, she can just see the anger and dislike radiating off him. What she says is absolutely impossible. When Desiree and Tom team up to discover who her father really was, they certainly never expected to run into danger, but there it was at every turn. Will they survive to actually identify her father AND what was in the package she was supposed to ‘retrieve’ from Tom’s office? There are threats and villains everywhere and Desiree and Tom will have to work hard to sort through all of them to solve the mystery of her parentage – and to keep each other safe. Will they live long enough to find their HEA? It is a very close thing! I thoroughly enjoyed this read and can hardly wait for the next one. It was fun to have at least short visits with all of the Morelands, but it was especially fun to have Con and Alex show up with their delightful antics. The characters are delightful, the story is well-written, and the solution will keep you guessing right till the end. I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
