Editorial Reviews

Review

What readers are saying about MANGROVES AND MONSTERS:

Mangroves and Monsters... WOW. A fabulous addition to the story!! I love, love, love the twists. The feeling like I should be somewhere too hot and humid for my comfort. I found the Caribbean to be quite lovely from my couch. There is so much more to put into a review, but I dare not giveaway *any* of the story! ~ Jody, Goodreads.com

A good, fun read! ~ Carrie, Goodreads.com

A new plot twist on every page. ~ Ann Crutchfield, Florida USA

If you love a good romance and good mystery, you get it all right here. ~ Wendy Hill, North Carolina USA

If you love really evil bad guys, spooky settings, and a story that will keep you wondering all the way to the end, you will love Hoodoo Money! I hope Ms. Pennington has more planned like this book because this book just whets my appetite. ~ Stevi B, Reviewer, Manic Readers

From the Author

One of my earliest fiction heroines was Nancy Drew. I couldn't get enough of her. Nancy was self-confident and clever and always, ALWAYS eyeball deep in trouble. Oddly, she was the direct opposite of me. Hoodoo Money is the kind of romantic suspense novel I loved to read then, and still do. Hopefully, I've succeeded in filling its pages with enough mystery to spark the imagination and ample romance to stir the heart. With a dose of sizzle thrown in for good measure.

Sharon Pennington's newest novel whisks the reader to a tropical paradise where the hunt for lost love and a maniacal killer races to a page turning climax. Old love rekindles, new love sparks, and ever-present danger lurks in the shadows. Well developed characters and palpable tension make Mangroves and Monsters a must read.

Just as exciting as the first book and you find out so much more about these characters. The story continues on with their troubles with The Dutchman and there's so much going on you can't put it down. Read It in one afternoon, that's how good it is, but you should read the first one or you will be lost (Hoodoo Money) , that's the first book, it's exciting and as page turning. Great Job Sharon., I do hope we have more from these characters soon.

I didn't think this was going to be the page Turner it was.I knew it would be good because the first one was but this was even more intense and I don't know how she will top it but I bought this and read it straight through so if she's up for the challenge I'm a willing subject.

Format: Paperback
Sharon Pennington's romantic suspense pulls you in and wraps you in a mystery laced with sexual energy. This plot and beautifully crafted set of characters will keep you up late and force you to finish the story in one sitting. Mangroves and Monsters serves as both a sequel to her first release Hoodoo Money and a stand-alone, but either way, you won't put it down. It's that intriguing and flows that easily. Cooper seeks his love and ex-supermodel Angeline even after being told she'd died in an accident. On the Caribbean island of Jacqueme Dominique he locates not only her but his young son conceived in a moment of passion years ago. But another has followed Cooper, an enemy who still haunts Cooper's dreams. Passion, deceit, murder, and abduction embroil family and friends in a tropical novel that will leave you craving another sequel from this author. Trust me. Pennington can spin a story.

I purchased this book on my Kindle after reading the first novel in the series Hoodoo Money. This sequel did not disappoint! The story continues on with the characters taking them to the Caribbean. The author has written a well-crafted novel with exciting plots and a cast of fully-developed characters. The descriptions of the lush tropical island setting are on target. This is another first-class romantic suspense from an extremely talented writer. Hope to read more from this author.

MANGROVES AND MONSTERS (The Stolen Nickel Series) by Sharon Cupp Pennington
The story takes place on the Caribbean island of Jacqueme Dominique. It is a mystery type of book, it has a bit of romance, and of course a murder. I did blush while reading certain parts but it was not inappropriate for the scene.
The main Characters of the story are Charlie Cooper (also called Coop), Angeline St. Cyr, Brent St. Cyr, and Kat.
I could not pick just one favorite character as all the characters in the book were well developed and I came to care for all the characters.
After the first book the second was easier to understand what the writer was doing. I liked how it wasn’t just told from one point of view and you got to see in side all the main characters. I was not able to home in on who the bad person (I’m not saying who it is) was and only figured it out as the main characters did. Although I will say my gut was screaming at me something was not right with a couple of the characters. Also Willem Voorhees does make an appearance.
I felt every emotion that the characters felt. Even though I have never lost a child or someone I loved I was able to understand a little of what they were going through, I could feel everything the characters were feeling and it was very refreshing. I did cry and laugh and want to shot someone, so the author did a great job of pulling you into the book. This book was a page turner and once I got started I had a very hard time putting the book down.
I cannot wait to read the next book in the series as this one left me wanting more.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, romance, or someone who just want a good read!

I wanted to give it 4 1/2 stars but you can't. I read the first one and it was a little confusing so I wasn't sure about the second book. Well the first turned out to be good but the second one is better and grabs you from the first page and never lets go till the end. I read this when the author sent it to me for an honest review. Great read. Follows Montgomery, Braeden, Cooper and Angeline on their quest to find the man who has turned their worlds upside down. Their travels take us to the rain forest and New Orleans. I keeps you reading till the end.

Sharon Cupp Pennington once again keeps readers on the edge of their seats in Mangroves and Monsters (The Stolen Nickel Series Book 2). Readers are able to continue their relationship with characters from book 1, Hoodoo Money, and cross the ocean to find more mystery and romance and the introduction of more richly created characters. Each page leaves you thirsting for more answers and believing that the boogeyman may truly exist. This book is a great read for those who love action, romance, mystery, and murder. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
