If you like your mysteries layered you’ll love Sarah Andre’s debut, Romantic Suspense novel, Locked Loaded and Lying.

It has a tightly developed mystery plot, interesting characters with very human flaws, and a sexy love story. When I read it, I felt like I was standing at my dream smorgasbord and getting a good helping of everything I like in a story: Romance, Suspense and Mystery.

The feisty heroine Jordan Sinclair is my favorite character. A survivor of a difficult childhood (which I won’t give away) she has strong convictions about what is right and wrong. She wants to protect her mother, but not at the cost of hurting others. Her inner-conflict is compelling and I rooted for her all the way.

The bad-boy, hunky hero, professional ski champion Lock Roane is accused of murdering his heiress girlfriend Tiffany van der Kellen. That would be a life-changing experience for anyone, but what tears him apart is that he can’t remember whether he did it or not. As he waits for the trial to begin, he does some serious soul searching. And then he meets Jordan.

Together they piece together what happened the night Tiffany died. Along the way they fall in love. The pages on my Kindle zapped by.

My two favorite lines:

“I knew if I didn’t kill him that morning, he’d kill me.”

“My life is like tip-toeing along a greased log in a river of snapping crocodiles.”

This author is an exceptional writer! I fell into the story and couldn’t let it go.  I can’t wait to read her next book. I highly recommend this book to people who enjoy Romantic-Suspense mysteries.

I’ll be posting my review with 5 stars on Amazon (where there are already 68 awesome reviews) and Goodreads.

Author: Jo-Ann Carson

About Jo-Ann Carson Where magic happens … Reports of Jo-Ann Carson’s death on a Gulf Island are greatly exaggerated or, at the very least, premature. The eclectic crew of ghosts that haunt her head spill onto the page in two series: The Gambling Ghosts and The Ghost & Abby Mysteries. A Viking with existential issues, a broken hearted Highlander, a Casanova man-witch and a Pirate with a secret are just a few of the males her strong heroines encounter in tales of fantasy, adventure and romance. A firm believer in the magic of our everyday lives, Jo-Ann loves watching sunrises, walking beaches near her home in the Pacific Northwest and reading by the fire.

  1. Oh my GOSH! Thank you SO much for this surprise blog review, Jo-Ann! you’ve totally made my night. It’s been raining here all day in Cancun and I have spent the entire time revising the next novel and feeling pretty crappy about my writing. This was JUST what I needed! I’m so grateful for your friendship. 🙂


    1. Hi Sarah
      I’m glad you liked the review. Your book deserves every bit of praise I gave it and more. You are a masterful writer. I hope your editing gets easier, but I know it’s never easy. Enjoy Cancun.
      My best
