    Revenge Brandon and Marie are reunited after ten years Marie sets out to prove her father has been murdered She becomes embroiled in a plot of revenge which puts her own life in danger The plot in this book is connected to the crimes solved in book one of the series There are hints that make the reader eager to begin book three.

    3 1 2 Star Review..While Christmas Awakening is the second of the series, it is not necessarily a continuation, but many previous characters do make an appearance throughout the book.Unlike book one, this story doesn t provide the same level of suspense, and the romance is a little too sweet for my taste, but overall it s a good, fast read and I m sure many will enjoy this tale.
