"All the Right Reasons" is another great book Janice Sims has written. Clay Knight and Georgie Shaw make a lovely couple. Clay, a private investigator, is hired by Charles Waters, to find what Mr. Waters thinks is his child. However, a surprise awaits Mr. Waters when not one, but two adult children surface. The plot thickens not only with the discovery of the twins, but also when Clay realizes that someone is out to murder Georgie. However, that someone is set to not only destroy Georgie, but must destroy Georgie's twin sister, Bree in order to get what the murderer wants. Toni Shaw, Georgie and Bree's mother, and Charles Waters (Chuck) lover years ago is forced to protect her children in any way possible. Toni must confront Chuck after years of separation, but will the confrontation also bring to surface Toni's undying feelings of love? A love that was never buried even though Toni thought Chuck had neglected her in a time of need years ago. Toni must now confront all of her feelings for all the right reasons -- those for her children as well as to put a close to a past that held deep love and a future that still has love in it for Chuck. Those feelings of love are not only from Toni, but Chuck must also realize his feelings and what he gave up years ago. "All the Right Reasons" has suspense and romance. Also, there is a story in itself with Toni Shaw and Charles Waters. "All The Right Reasons" is a great book!
Georgie Shaw's world is turned upside down the minute her mother introduces her to Clayton Knight. All of a sudden Georgie becomes the target of a hired hit man. Then Georgie and her twin sister, Briane, learn the truth about the father they never knew. But things really get heated up when Georgie finds herself in the protective arms of Mr. Clay "Knight In Shining Armor". This tale is full of suspense. But, the action flows so fast you won't have time to bite your nails! And if the hunt and chase is not enough to keep your heart pounding...the attraction between Georgie and her man Clay most definitely will! Once again, Ms. Sims uses a strong loving family as a backdrop for her story. True to her literary form, Ms. Sims develops all of her characters very well - even the household staff. The scene between the household cook and the killer will have you rolling! I also like the fact that the ladies in this story are not those faint-hearted, "Owww, I twisted my ankle" kind of women. Janice Sims does it again. All The Right Reasons is the fourth Janice Sims novel that I've read, and as always I was completely drawn in! Great job Ms. Sims. Keep'em Coming! Now that things have settled down, I'd like to know what happens to Toni and Chuck too.
Janice Sims has a way with words as she writes this romance, adventure, murder mystery novel. She seems to be able to craft a story of romance with the twists of excitement of adding mystery. This is what we get, Toni Shaw, mother of twin daughters, Charles Waters, Toni's ex-lover and father of the twins, and Clayton Knight the private investigator. So with these major characters we get lots of humor, serious unresolved issues, major love sparks and some dangerous murder attempts. All this wraps up to be one good book that is worth every bit of time you give to read it all. I just have one problem with this book, it leaves us with so many unresolved answers to what happens to the major characters. But then again, I guess we just have to patiently wait for Janice Sims to give us a sequel to find out! If you like Janice Sims, check out some of these other published books of hers I truly enjoyed: A Bittersweet Love, For Keeps, Out of the Blue, Love Letters and Affair of the Heart.
As a reader, I loved this story. This writer has an obvious love of the language and it shows on every page. Well crafted and characterized, this book was appealing on many levels. The mystery and the mayhem hold up well throughout. Heck, even the dog was well done! Bravo Janice, but I have one question. What about Toni and Chuck?
All the Right Reasons is the continuation of the Toni Shaw story from Love Letters book. Georgie Shaw meets and falls hard for Private Investigator Clay Knight. The feisty Bree Shaw the actress daughter and drama queen , helps to make the story funny and gives the reader a chance to laugh out loud. A good read and great follow up story.
This was the first novel that I read by Janice Sims. Overall it was enjoyable, however, I felt the love story between Georgie and Clay was lacking. There were so many things going on and so many characters being introduced that it was a bit confusing at times. I felt that Georgie and Clay's relationship was being overshadowed by the reunion of Georgie's mom and dad. I became much more interested in her parents relationship than I did with her own. I also feel that Sims did not spend enough time focusing on Georgie and Clay's romance. Although I have yet to read "A Second Chance For Love," which is a continuation of this novel, I think I will like it better than this one. If you ask me, she could have combined both stories into one book, focusing on Toni and Charles's (Georgie's parents) romance.
