My Review of Georgia Stories On My Mind

I loved the book.  I loved the different stories that were written.  My favorite story has to be the one of the girl who inherits a house from her grandmother, and in the process of taking care of the house, she looks for her dad who went missing when she was a child on her birthday.  I don’t know what it is, it is always the first story that is my favorite.  I love anything that is based in Georgia, so of course, I wanted to participate in this tour.  Jackie did a magnificent job of writing these stories, and giving me the feel of being the beautiful state.

Synopsis for Ransom

A new series from the author of the Moonshine Task Force Series! Laurel Springs, AL is about to be hotter than a mid-August thunderstorm. When the Moonshine Task Force is absorbed into a new entity, Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team (LSERT) new faces come to town, new love is born, old love is found again, and there’s a plethora of drama and romance happening all over the tri-county area. LSERT puts police, firefighters, nurses, doctors, K-9 handlers, and EMT’s all in harm’s way as they work to keep the area safe from the threat. Emotions run Hugh, passions ignite. Come with me, back to Laurel Springs, in what’s sure to be a wild ride!

Ransom Thompson

For years, I’ve wanted two things – to be a member of the Moonshine Task Force and to be the man Stella Kepler can’t live without. One out of two isn’t bad, or so I tell myself. Being the only K-9 handler for The MTF presents its own share of obstacles, but me and Rambo? We make it work. Life is status quo, until I’m called in to help with what appears to be a hostage situation and Stella is right in the middle of it. This is my one chance, and I’m not going to blow it.

Stella Kepler

When I’m stuck in an examination room holding a hurt woman and a man with a gun, I do the only thing I can. I sneak out, call 911 and hope help comes quickly. It does. In the form of Ransom Thompson. He and I have known each other since we were babies. Our mother’s are friends, our dad’s work together, and we’ve always been friends. Only, the last few months I’ve started to notice things. How mature he is, how alpha he can be, the chiseled six-pack, and the abundance of ink spreading across his body. When I offer to cook him dinner for saving me, neither one of us know how that one moment will change the course of the rest of our lives.

Synopsis for Suppression

From USA Today Bestselling author, the second book in the Laurel Springs Emergency Response Team Series.

If you don’t love, you can’t get hurt . . .

Nick Kepler

One thing my childhood taught me was never show my emotions. Don’t make memories. Don’t count on other people. Don’t hope for the best. All that changed when I was adopted by Ryan and Whitney Kepler. Begrudgingly I let them into my life, along with my new sister and a best friend I would lay down my life for. But giving up my heart and accepting love in return from Kelsea Harrison? It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to do. And the truth is? I’m not sure if I’m that strong.

Kelsea Harrision

From the very moment I met Nick Kepler, I knew he would be the the love of my life. Problem is I haven’t been able to convince him of that yet. When our best friends get married, Nick and I spend a drunken night letting our walls down and losing all our inhibitions. In one moment I’m given everything I ever wanted. Then, in the blink of an eye it’s taken away from me. The question is, can I be strong for the both of us? The answer? I have to be.

Synopsis for Enigma

It’s not how we make mistakes, but how we correct them that defines us . . .

Karsyn Fallway

Tucker didn’t stop my car as it drove away from his house that summer night, and the sting of rejection hasn’t gone away.

Over a year has gone by, and I find myself looking for him in all the places he’d been before. It doesn’t help, he’s still an enigma I have yet to figure out.

My friends are the only thing holding me together. Work is the one thing keeping my mind busy. Until my life threatens to tear completely apart.

Tucker Williams

She drove away and my pride wouldn’t allow me to stop her. A year later, regret keeps me up at night, forcing me to replay the moment in my head.

Working with the K-9’s is the only thing keeping me going. Becoming close with the former MTF is a perk I hadn’t counted on.

When a child is kidnapped, all the hard feelings have to be put aside to save a life. Secrets are unearthed, and this time as Karsyn threatens to break, I know I’m the one to put her back together.

Review

I love Laramie’s MTF series! I especially loved the men. I think my favorite so far, has to be Nick. He is broken, and you just want to hug him. And, of course, Ransom’s dog, Rambo. I have never read anything on an ERT before, so this is the first, and is certainly will not be the last. Laramie puts in the situations like it was actually unraveling in front of you in real life. It gives you the feels of hope and love, and fear for their safety. Laramie knocked it out of the park!
