Sarah gets a call at work one day to find her child has been kidnapped and her life is thrust into turmoil again. But Sarah is not really Sarah (her name is really Elizabeth) - she had run away and hidden after her husband was arrested as a serial killer. And now someone wants his "trophies."
Now the clock is ticking, and we meet interesting characters along the way. Her panic is palpable. A very suspenseful read with lots of fascianting plot twists

Close to Home by Jenna Bennett is the fourth book in the “Savannah Martin” mystery series. Publisher: Bente Gallagher, September 2011
This story evoke so many emotions that I could not put this book down. This was a departure from the previous three titles when a murder hit very close to Savannah and her family. While dealing with her own health issues, a missing “boyfriend”, helping her brother find an heir; Savannah looks into who wanted her SIL dead and faces an opponent that gave her cause. The page-turning, action-filled drama pulled me in from that first sentence to the last line and I can’t wait to read the next book in this wonderful series.

Sleight of Paw by Sofie Kelly is the second book in the “Magical Cats” mystery series. Publisher: Obsidian, September 2011
This was a good read. When Kathleen’s friend is arrested for murder and believing in her innocence, Kathleen begins an earnest investigation into the murder. This was easy-paced story that was very appealing. The mystery was good and with guidance from her mystical cats, Kathleen was able to expose a killer. I liked the character developments; the easy flow of conversations; the small-town feeling and of course, her two furry roommates. I look forward to reading the next book in this charming series.

Death in a Difficult Position by Diana Killian is the fourth book in the “Mantra for Murder” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, September 2011
Yoga, a sin? That is what the newly arrived Reverend is telling his congregation. While A.J. and the other yoga owners tried to talk some sense into him, Lily lets her temper get the best of her and when he is murdered, Lily becomes the prime suspect. Knowing that A.J. like sleuthing, Lily asks A.J. to find the killer before she is doing a 7-year stretch. I enjoyed this lighthearted and fast-paced story. The mystery was good, as I didn’t pinpoint the killer until later in the story and it was fun watching A.J. and her mother “work” the case. New characters were introduced in this tale and I hope we get to see more of them in the next installment of this likeable series.
