Love, Lies and Azure Eyes by Janis Thornton
About the BookLove, Lies, and Azure Eyes Paranormal Romantic Suspense Soul Mate Publishing, LLC (June 12, 2019) Print Length: 267 pages ASIN: B07PRV6VZC
Elated by Annie’s response, Johnny caved to his impulse and pressed his mouth to her sweet lips, sparking a surge of electricity that ricocheted through his entire body, and for one glorious moment swept him up in a wave of emotion that meteorically whisked him to the edge of the universe, past swirling spirals of brightly burning stars — white dwarfs, red giants, entire galaxies. Caught in the rapture, he shed his cocoon of darkness and experienced the light — the wonderful, warm, life-affirming light. He reveled in it, felt alive. He almost believed he was. Almost.* * *
West Coast journalist Annie Sinclair’s career, not to mention her love life, has been on the skids far too long, when she returns to Logan Point, her small, Indiana hometown. She’s back to make amends with her elderly father, and to delve into the 25-year-old, unsolved murder of her high school classmate for a writing gig with a national tabloid.
Annie’s plans soon go awry, and her mettle is tested — first when her father warns her against digging into the past; and again, when she meets the Logan Point Ledger’s handsome, but exasperating, new editor; and again still, when she reconnects with her first love, who clearly wants to rekindle what once was.
But Annie’s most arduous test appears in the form of the earthbound spirit of a boy she once knew — the boy with the azure eyes accused of the murder she is looking into. He needs her to prove his innocence, so he can break the ties that bind him to the darkness. In exchange, he will set Annie free to realize that the love she yearns for is just within her reach … if only she will open her heart.

I loved this engrossing and fast-paced suspense novel!
Although I had reservations about reading it because of the paranormal element, I had no need to be concerned because in the end, I think this considerably enhanced the story.
The author, Janis Thornton, created some fabulous characters for this great tale. I loved that Annie was so down-to-earth, determined and feisty. Even the bad guys played a great part and they all contributed to the story in their individual ways.
I loved that Scott Wayne, Logan Point’s handsome and intrepid new editor at ‘The Ledger’ was always one step ahead of Annie, though this must have been extremely frustrating for her.
The snippets of romance in this thriller were a lovely addition and really complemented the story, overall. The mystery itself was a definite page-turner and I was desperate to find out how events would eventually be concluded. There was plenty of opportunity to play armchair detective in the novel though I didn’t guess the outcome before the big reveal.
The writing style of Janis Thornton was great for me. There was a good combination of descriptive passages to dialogue.
Love, Lies and Azure Eyes is worth each one of it’s five stars and I highly recommend it!
I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Great Escape Tours at my own request. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
