    Beautiful Storm by Barbara Freethy is a 2015 Fog City publication Alicia is a storm chaser, but not in the usual sense She is a photographer, whose specialty is capturing the spectacular electric energy of lightning strikes in action But, one night, as the sky is illuminated by a lightning storm, she witnesses a couple involved in a violent argument, but an accident prevents her from reaching the woman who is obviously in danger However, once she reaches the area where the scuffle took place, sh [...]

    It s all linked Everything Beautiful Storm reminded me than just a little of Brenda Novak s Bulletproof Series It has that same brooding atmosphere and the feeling of imminent danger But I don t think it s anywhere near as strong as Bulletproof.It mostly works even if some of the strings which link the characters beggar belief Overall, an entertaining start to the series and I m interested to see where the story goes.

    You know I really hate an unsolved mystery And everything was all wrapped up nice and purty, till the end WHY WHY WHY WHY I must take away a star for this crime

    The first book in the Lightning Strikes series by Barbara Freethy Alicia Monroe is a news photographer who has a hobby photographing lightning Since her father disappeared ten years ago she has had a fascination with lightning Her father told stories about the lightning and it stayed with her On one of her photo shoots she sees a couple fighting but before she can get to them lightning strikes a nearby tree, delaying her, and they are gone But she finds the dog tags belonging to a missing person [...]

    Find this review and many at That Artsy Reader Girl DNF Thoughts So There are TONS of Barbara Freethy books out there and I ve always been intrigued Many of the story lines sound good, and I ve collected her titles as I ve seen them show up for free on I had a hankering for a little romantic suspense and was eager to finally see if Freethy is an author for me And nope She s not.The mysticism of the lightning was just a bit too over the top for me The lightning calls Alicia to it because it want [...]

    Boring Boring Boring If you want to read about the loss of a father a long time ago again and again then this book is the right one for you A crime Oh yes, there is one, but even that s boring

    I have enjoyed several of Freethy s books not not this one so much There was no chemistry between the characters especially for and instalove book.Characters were just alright Story line wasn t bad Mystery was alright, danger fear level was low The lightening showing the way was odd too Maybe it was just me but I didn t care for it.I loved her books Golden Lies and Don t say a Word

    I love Barbara Freethy books and always look forward to the next book This book begins a new 3 part series centered around the Monroe siblings Their father s plane had mysteriously disappeared in the middle of an electrical storm He was known to his friends and family as Lightning man, and his daughter, Alicia Monroe, has shared his passion and obsession with lightning She is a photo journalist but also takes pictures of lightning storms The story begins on a stormy evening Alicia is headed towa [...]

    Ms Feethy s has a writing style that pulls the reader in from her wonderful plot that entertains the reader to the suspense and mystery that hooks the reader The characters are well developed people you can relate to that are just like we are with normal baggage and personal issues Their circumstance brings them together I love the slow buildup as the author spins a plot that keeps us invested not only in the characters but the story line As they search for Liliana they are pulled together to di [...]

    This story was okay Great Narration by Eva Kaminsky audible review You really didn t know who done it until the very end, and I didn t guess who it was early on So that is good As or the romance portion I liked the characters individually well enough, but to me they didn t seem to make a great couple, it felt forced and not very genuine to me There was a lot of dialogue throughout and that was good It wasn t full of filler nonsense and that was good It just wasn t an exciting story or a page tur [...]

    This was the October Barnes and Noble Nook serial read.This book was a whole lot of things, and it worked for the most part I liked Alicia I liked Michael Their 0 to 100 relationship made my head spin given the time frame, but it made a little sense when I realized this was the only book in the series about them But still This was a mystery, but I still don t really get they why in term of the killer s motive That person came out of nowhere, and I don t really understand what led to all the dea [...]

    I am subscribed to Nook Books Readouts, another reason I am loyal to Barnes and Noble Bookstore Readouts is a monthly serial book, you get a couple chapters a day Genres change and Beautiful Storm is a likeable Romance It has a murder plot to see through to a satisfying conclusion The characters are an attractive soon to be couple, of course The interesting part was the author s matter of fact illustration of the role grief has in our lives Thanks BN and Nook I would otherwise have missed this r [...]

    Beautiful Storm Lightning Strikes Book 1 is by Barbara Freethy This begins a new series by Barbara and it starts out with a bang A mystery and a romance and a thriller all in one It is very realistic and the characters are fully developed and realistic as well You can t beat a book like that Alicia Monroe was a photojournalist and a photography artist She took pictures of lightning strikes, framed them, and sold them She also held down a real job as a photographer for the local newspaper in Miam [...]

    Alicia Monroe is a photojournalist with the Miami Chronicle In her free time, she chases storms and captures them for posterity When a particularly fierce storm was expected in southern Florida, she drove to Virgin Key Park, in the hope of getting some really exciting pictures As the storm moves in from the sea, darkness covers both water and land Great flashes of lightning revealed mere glimpses of the world As she was photographing the weather, she spies two people on the beach a man and a wom [...]

    This is a quick, light, easy readwith mystery and love Nothing , but it must ve been what I needed at this point cuz I enjoyed it Nothing to stressful and you always know the end with love stories.meone falls in love.The Mayan side of his family believed that lightning ties the earth to the heavens, the living to the dead, the past to the present My great grandmother used to say that the lightning comes down from the sky to show you what you need to see Loc 547 I always love to hear of other cul [...]

    Alicia Monroe became obsessed with chasing and photographing lightning since her fathers plane went down in a storm During one of her shootings, she see s a woman and man arguing and possibly a murder Afterwards she discovers a set of dog tags with the name of a woman who has been missing for two months Michael Cordero is not only a friend with the missing woman since childhood, but is the number one suspect for her disappearance Alicia and Michael are now on the path of trying to find Liliana V [...]

    Alicia grew up with the mysterious death of her father hanging over her head She never got over it and broke away from the family to chase lightning taking pictures of it for the gallery One night while chasing a storm she sees a man attacking a woman in the park After being knocked out by a tree branch, she awakes and finds a name tag of the woman attacked She then is on a journey to find this woman Lillianna , she meets up with Michael who is also looking for Lilianna and they journey together [...]

    OK bookEnjoyed the suspense but got bored with the two main characters It is almost as though the writing came from two different authors The romance was too simplistic and made the characters sound like high school kids, not adults You think I m pretty, oh really Awww shucks Seriously I did like how the mystery unraveled but not sure if I will read any of her books.

    I m glad this book is the first in a new trilogy, because I have something to look forward to The characters are easy to know and people I d like to be friends with The story is developed in a way that makes a person want to turn the page and see what happens next, and I didn t see the ending coming until it was there I like a book that leaves me wanting , asking as many questions as it answers, and Beautiful Storm does just that.

    A very enjoyable light hearted mysteryThere are very few books that I buy than one copy of, but I did for this one The book combined mystery, romance, family connections, and a little bit of mysticism I would recommend this book to anyone who likes lighter mysteries I can t wait to pre order the next book It will be interesting to see these characters again.

    Enjoyable mystery suspense, with a touch of supernatural Easy read, although got a little confusing keeping all the players straight in the middle, but was kept guessing until the end Will read the rest in the series, excited to see where it goes and to find out what happened to Alicia s dad all those years ago.

    Good story with well developed characters.Barbara Freethy is one of my favorite authors I love reading but don t like writing reviews.Especially when a certain number of words is requiredfeels like school and book reports Six words required to submit.

    From the moment I read the brief discription, I was hooked I love thrillers that really take you to a completely place that keeps you on the edge of your seat This story was presented as a serial read and once you meet the characters, see the mystery they are trying to solve you fall in love with them and only want the best for them As Michael Cordero and Alicia Monroe start their quest to find out what happened to Michael s longtime friend, Liliana you realize nothing will be the same for them, [...]

    So you d think that the October selection for the BN Readouts would be somehow related to horror, in honor of Halloween later this month, but that s not the case Instead they opted for a murder mystery, romantic suspense type of story I have to admit, what intrigues me the most about this book is the protagonist s job as a photojournalist, with a passion for storm photography, to the extent that she races towards the most severe storms, instead of away from them.The I learned about Alicia Monro [...]
