Elvis Is A Keeper by Shauna Allen--A Review


Hook . . .

Em Reed’s life is complicated enough—thank you, very much. As a single mother struggling to take over the family fishing guide business, she yearns to make her beloved father proud. He is the only man she trusts—the only one who has been there for her through every heartache.

Line . . .

And the last thing she needs is to fall for some brainiac writer who is only in town temporarily. Even if he does bear a fascinating resemblance to the King of Rock ‘n Roll—the only man who still rocks her world.

And Sinker . . .

But as her life takes a horrific turn for the worst and her father is accused of a brutal crime, can she keep her family together, her father from confessing to save the love of his life, and her own heart safe?

Or is Elvis a Keeper?


Anyone familiar with my blog in the slightest surely knows how I feel about Shauna Allen and her writing.   She is an amazing romance writer.

I decided I was going to read something outside of the Cupid Chronicles and selected Elvis Is a Keeper.  This is a mystery romance and was a charming read.  Her characters were affable and quirky.  I enjoyed the fact that Em Reed was a huge Elvis fan and that one day her customer, Vance turned up and was an Elvis look a like...except a brown eyed Elvis.

I also liked the spin on the Mason's and how they were represented as brothers and family.    When one member was in trouble, they were all feeling that pain and needed resolution.

I think the storyline was pretty unique and interesting.

The only problem I encountered was the sharp change in point of view within the chapter from one character to another and it sometimes took a minute to realize the point of view was that of a different character.  Once I adjusted to this, I found myself involved in a very satisfying read.

I rated this book 4 Winks!
