Because You're Mine

I received a copy of Because You're Mine by Colleen Coble from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Alanna has been plagued by tragedy. So it should come as no surprise that in the beauty that surrounds Charleston, all is not as it seems.
When her husband is killed by a car bomb while their band is on tour in Charleston, Alanna doesn’t know where to turn. Her father-in-law is threatening to take custody of the baby she carries, but the one thing she knows for sure is that she can’t lose the last piece of Liam she has left.
Their manager offers her a marriage of convenience to gain her U.S. citizenship and allow her to escape her father-in-law’s control. It seems like the perfect solution . . . but her doubts begin almost as soon as she arrives at Barry’s family home, a decaying mansion surrounded by swamp.
To make matters worse, Liam’s best friend survived the car bomb. She’s never really liked Jesse and now she can’t seem to get away from him. When he takes Liam’s place in their band, it’s almost more than she can bear.
But then things start happening. Things that could easily cost Alanna her life—or the life of her
unborn child. Are they merely coincidences? Or is there something much more sinister at work?

A really good book!  Alanna and her husband Liam are in an up and coming band touring in Charleston.  After a show Liam is killed in a car bomb.  When Alanna's father-in-law threatens to take her unborn baby Alanna flees to the US with the bands manager.  In a marriage of convenience Alanna and Barry move into his family home, a rundown mansion in the middle of nowhere.  While trying to find a drummer for the band Liam's friend Jesse starts practicing with the band.  Alanna never really liked Jesse and since he survived the car bomb she is having a terrible time having him around.  When odd and scary things start happening at the mansion can Alanna and her band mates get to the bottom of things and keep each other safe?

I received a copy of Crevice by Janice Boekhoff from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Desperate to save her family’s gold mine, Elery Hearst gives an order that results in the tragic death of one of her men. But before she can come to terms with the guilt consuming her, her brother disappears. To find him, she must find the legendary Lost Dutchman gold mine. And the one person who can help, Lucan Milner, has every reason to want her to fail; he’s the twin brother of the miner who died. He holds the secret to finding Elery’s brother, but sharing it with her not only rips open his grief-stricken heart, it puts both of them in the path of a killer.

This was a good book that pulls you in from the beginning.  Elery is trying to save her family's gold mine after her father stepped down due to health issues.  A collapse in one of the tunnels causes one of her miners his life.  While she's trying to deal with the loss her brother goes missing while looking for the Lost Duchman gold mine.  Lucan Milner and his tracking dog is brought in to help find her brother.  Lucan is very willing to help Elery any way he can even though his twin brother is the miner that lost his life in Elery's mine.  Can they get past their grief and find Elrey's brother before it's too late?
