Book Review-Sweet Dreams Baby by Nora LeDuc-Goddess Fish Promotions Tours

 

About the book 
Who killed Judge Shaw Buchanan aka “the hanging judge,” on the day of his wife’s funeral?

When Harper Buchanan, the judge’s estranged daughter, witnesses her father’s murder in the small town of Barley, New Hampshire, she promises to find his escaped killer. She hires local private investigator, Finn O’Rourke to track down the shooter. Soon, they are working together, and Harper finds herself drawn to Finn’s looks, smarts, and self-reliance. But she’s fallen for the wrong type of man before. She vows not to repeat her mistake and to keep their relationship professional.



Finn does his best to deal with their growing chemistry by focusing on the job. But when someone attempts to kill Harper to prevent her from uncovering the identity of her father’s murderer, his goal changes. Harper’s protection becomes Finn’s full-time priority, even though it means risking his life for a woman who may never love him.
Read an excerpt
“Leave or I’ll shoot you. You’ll be the next customer earmarked for eternal rest.”

Harper Buchanan shut her mouth in the middle of accepting condolences as her father’s steel-toned voice traveled from the hall into the crowded reception room of Smitty’s Funeral Parlor.

At five-ten, she was easily able to scan the faces of shocked grievers and assess the situation. She’d spent the last two days trying to be a good daughter by making sure her mother received a “heavenly” goodbye. Now, the morning teetered on the verge of going to hell.

She inhaled a sharp breath that filled her lungs with the scent of the flowers decorating the shelves behind her mother’s closed coffin. Nausea rumbled in her stomach. But she didn’t have time to be sick. Her father, Judge Shaw Buchanan, was close to out of control.

Staying away from Judge Buchanan on his “dark days” was one of the first things new interns at the courthouse learned to do, usually the hard way. His work friends and acquaintances knew better than to approach him in his present mood. They’d come here out of their respect and admiration for a man who upheld the law and handed out stiff punishments.

So that left her to handle him. Once her dad flew into a rage, nothing but time and distance cooled his anger. She had to stop him before he reached that point.

And I thought
Get the laundry going.  The crock pot on. A glass of sweet tea and a bottle of wine.   Then crack it open.   This one is hard to put down!  Get ready for a 5 star read!

From the first few pages this reader was totally absorbed and engaged.

I loved the fast paced ride. 

I loved the characters.  They swept in and captured my attention. 
The sparks that fly between Harper and Finn had me wanting to have a 'sit down' with them from time to time.  They needed a little nudge toward each other.  

This was a fun twisting turning ride!
