Book Title: Dust and Ends Author: Denise Mathew Genre: Romantic Suspense Release Date: August 2014 Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions
Desperate to get Ransom back, Lexie goes to extreme lengths to prove that the past doesn’t equal the present. In her quest to reignite the flame that was extinguished, she puts everything on the line, throwing her heart and soul into helping find the proof that Ransom needs to be vindicated. But to find the truth Ransom and Lexie must work together, something Ransom isn’t too keen on doing. With time running out and nothing to hang on to but a few flimsy shreds of possibilities, Ransom and Lexie must sift through Ransom’s past if they have any chance at all to save his future.
My Review: I was thrilled to see that Dust and Ends picked up where Ransom left off. It fully took off running leading right into Lexi and Ransom and where things were left. I had wished to have more info on how Ransom and Lexi end up however I did truly enjoy learning more about Ransom's past and how his mom and pa got together. It gave more insight to Ransom and his life. I enjoyed learning more of his back round. All in all I felt that Dust and Ends was a full story with a lot of heart and soul to it that gave new sight to the darkness that lurked around the corners of all of these lives.
Excerpt:Everything that I was doing went against the oath that I had made, the one that said that I wouldn’t do this to Lexie again, because it wasn’t right to make her believe that things between us would somehow work out. “And I need to do this one last time, to seal the promise,” I said. I caught her mouth in mine. It was the kiss that I shouldn’t have taken, but did all the same. It was everything that I had expected, the sweetest treat in the bakery store showcase, the moment of pleasure you felt when you were airborne, falling to the earth in a skydive, a time when if you let your mind forget where you were, you might imagine that you could actually fly. But with every jump there was also a landing, a time when the ground suddenly looked ominous, when your whole life was dependent on a flimsy piece of material that may or may not release and take you safely to the ground. This was that time, the second before I tugged the ripcord, so the air caught beneath fabric, guiding me back to reality. Of course there was also another scenario that might happen just as easily, the parachute would fail and I would be dead. I prayed my parachute would open in Miracle like Gabriel had said it would, but somehow I wasn’t sure it would. Denise Mathew loves good chocolate, lots of coffee, her kids and husband, when they behave, and of course writing stories. She believes that housework should be banned and wishes that potato chips were the most healthy and nutritious food on the planet. She worked as a pediatric nurse for eleven years, once owned an online jewelry business and even taught English in Thailand. She plans on writing until the stories run out, something she hopes never happens.
