Feed Your Addiction by Elizabeth Goddard

Your Romantic Suspense addiction, that is. I confess, I’m a literary addict and right now I’m hooked on romantic suspense, which is well and good considering I write in the genre. Ha!

That said, I want to share about my recent reads.

I just finished reading Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan. Rachel is a new-to-me author even though we share the same publisher in HQ Love Inspired Suspense. She’s an attorney who has practiced law for over a decade and by the details in her stories, you know she knows what she’s talking about. Let me just add, her stories are edge-of-your-seat romantic legal thrillers.

Deadly Proof is her debut novel with Bethany House Publishers and the first book in the Atlanta Justice series. The premise intrigued me so I picked up the book and started reading, and I was hooked. I read for a while every evening after my own writing and work is done. Once I started Deadly Proof, I looked forward to my reading time so I could get back into the twists and turns of this legal thriller.

I’m not going to give much away here. There’s nothing I hate worse than spoilers in reviews or even knowing small things about the plot. In fact, I don’t often read the back cover blurb if it gives too much away. So I’ll simply say that Rachel has weaved an intriguing high stakes, legal plotline with the right amount of romance to keeping you hooked in the story.

Here's the back cover copy:

Riveting New Series Offers Legal Suspense with a Romantic Twist

In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.

Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower's allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.

Determined not to make the same mistakes, he's intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything--even murder--to keep the case from going to trial.

You don’t want to miss this one.

Want a chance to win a copy of Deadly Proof? I’m interviewing Rachel on the Suspense Sisters blog, October 13th, so stop by again and you’ll get your chance.

But if you're like me and can’t wait to get your hands on a copy? Here’s the KINDLE link. That should get your going.

Up next is author Sibella Giorello. A friend recommended her Raleigh
Harmon series.  I finally read her book—The Stones Cry Out. (It won a Christy Award for best first novel.)

Oh. Wow. To think I have wasted all this time when I could have been reading this author! Raleigh Harmon is a forensic geologist working for the FBI. Her character is utterly captivating—so interesting and not your ho hum kind of character. Giorello also adds in so much detail about life as an FBI agent. I haven’t been able to stop reading the series and I’m almost done! NO. Say it ain’t so! Add to all this, Giorello's lush writing voice. I'm entertained by that all on its own. 

I’m currently reading The Moon Stands Still, Book 7 of the series, and so far the last of the adult Raleigh Harmon series. Giorello branches off into YA with her Raleigh Harmon Prequel Mystery Series and I’m sure I will read those next.

The great news for you is that you can get her first book in the Raleigh Harmon series, The Stones Cry Out, for FREE. Absolutely FREE. Get the Kindle version here, though I'm sure the book is available on other venues, i.e. Nook, Kobo, iBook.

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill free book. This is an amazing first book that will launch you into many weeks of reading enjoyment!

I hope you try these authors and I know you will enjoy them as much as I have! 

Now it's your turn. What series are you reading?

Now that my post is done, I'm digging back into The Moon Stands Still. 



  1. Alas, I am not reading any books (other than my morning devotional-related books) because school has started and, as a teacher, it is a bit hectic. The books sound fantastic, though, and I will have to add them to my list. Thanks for the summaries.

  2. Looking forward to reading the Stones Cry Out! I've finished Deadly Proof and it is great!

  3. I read Deadly Proof and I agree that it is a great read. Thanks for sharing the link for The Stones Cry Out.
