WELCOME to the Small Book Blog! I am a voracious reader. I love losing myself in books and cannot wait to read myself into my next adventure. It is because of this love for books that I created this blog. I want to share my passion of books with you! I hope you enjoy my recommendations and reviews. My goal is that they will lead you to a new book, series or author, that you can fall in love with and recommend to others as well.

Sharon Sala's Blood Ties (The Searchers #2)

I received this book in a free book club through the mail (you know, those pesky postcards in some books you throw away. I didn’t this time and I even remembered to cancel when the invoice and books came!) It’s possible that I might have enjoyed this book more had I read the first in the series before this one (the second in the series). However, I may not have. The book was okay and it had some scenes that were good. It was like a lifetime movie, everything is there for a fun or great book to get sucked into, but there is just that one element missing and you can’t. I think part of it was that it is listed as a romantic suspense and while there was romance and there was suspense it just didn’t do it for me as a romantic suspense. The main characters, the love interest, are long distance for most of the book, making brief phone calls. When they are together again, the action takes over and shadows the romance. Obviously, the romance is not all the way, but more than many books in this romantic suspense genre. Like I said, it had a “lifetime movie” quality I couldn’t embrace or get past. Like lifetime movies though, I enjoy them from time to time and I would give Sharon Sala another chance, I might try a different series though to see if that helped.
