Sins of the Past by Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, Lynette Eason

Missing by Dee Henderson
John is a Chief of Police heading back to his hometown of Chicago because his mother has disappeared. Heading up the investigation is the head of missing persons Sharon Noble. Together they try and find out who took John’s mother and why. Could it be someone from John’s past? Or was it a random crime of opportunity? As the hours march by the chances of his mother being found alive grow slimmer.  

I really liked this short story! There was mystery, a bit of suspense and even a potential for some romance. Plus add in one of my favorite authors writing the story and I was quite satisfied.

Shadowed by Dani Pettrey
Before the McKenna’s in the Alaskan Courage series their parents Ben and Libby were involved in a murder mystery in the 70’s.

While out whale watching Ben and Libby discover a body floating around among the Orca’s. Upon hauling the body in Libby discovers that she knows the woman. Kat was a Russian competitor among the long distance swimmers that Libby also competes in.

Ben and Libby discover a code sewn into Kat’s swim cap. They are determined to break the code in hopes of discovering who killed Kat, but that person is just as determined not to be discovered, including eliminating Ben and Libby to keep his identity secret.

I enjoyed reading how the McKenna parents met and fell in love. It was fun to see their personalities and their dreams of one day having a family. The mystery was good and I found it interesting to go back in time to where Russia was the enemy and spies and espionage were the norm.

Blackout by Lynette Eason
Macey Adams is starting to remember the nightmare that happened when she was 17. The only problem is someone from that night doesn’t want Macey to remember anything about that night.
When Macey’s next door neighbor, Chad Latham, hears her screams in the night he races over to her house to help her. Fearing that someone has tried to get into her house Macey believes she knows who it was. People have already died in order to keep Macey quiet about that fateful night, she is reluctant to share with Chad what is going on, but knows that she needs help to keep herself alive and learn the truth of what her mind has refused to remember.

I love a good romantic suspense and Blackout did not disappoint! Lynette Eason is one of those authors that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat throughout. 

All three authors in Sins of the Past are some of my favorite romantic/suspense writers and I enjoyed all three of their short stories. I liked that all three stories seemed to be complete on their own without feeling like I was missing something that went on before or after. Each story had all of the elements I have come to expect from these authors. Each story had a believable romance and each one had suspense that moved the story along. I enjoyed these short stories very much.
