BLOG TOUR (Review) - Ropes and Revenge (Lonesome Point, Texas #6) by Jessie Evans

Book & Author Details:
Ropes and Revenge by Jessie Evans 
(Lonesome Point, Texas #6)
Publication date: April 14th 2015
Genres: Adult, Suspense

Eight months ago, John Lawson lost his wife and best friend in a tragic accident on his family’s ranch. In the time since, he’s devoted himself to two things—taking care of his two newly motherless sons and proving that Lily’s accident was no accident. Now, he finally has hard evidence that his wife was murdered and he won’t rest until he has the killer’s blood on his hands. He doesn’t have time for anything but vengeance, especially not a crazy ghost hunter wanting to poke around the old spring on his family’s ranch.
Persephone Styles—Percy to her friends—learned about ghosts the hard way, when she was orphaned by a violent crime at the age of seven. Ever since, she’s seen spirits and been obsessed with studying souls beyond the grave. She’s in Lonesome Point to document the town’s spectral activity, but finds herself powerfully drawn to widower John Lawson and empathizing with his grieving children. For the first time in years, Percy is as riveted by the living as she’s always been by the dead and longs to be a part of John’s life.
But when one night of passion becomes something more, Percy realizes John is as haunted as she is and that the man she’s coming to love is walking a dangerous road that may end with him becoming a murderer’s next victim.


My Opinion 5 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

Although all the books in this series can be read as a stand alone book, I would recommend that you read Chaps & Chance before this one so that you can understand how and why John lost his wife Lily eight months ago.

After having lost his beloved wife, John has become a shadow of himself and is still struggling to cope without her. Even though the police have ruled Lily's death as an accident, John is convinced that she was murdered and is still trying to find that missing clue.

Percy is a ghost hunter that works for free to help trapped souls move to the other side. She has read of the curse on the Lawson ranch and is there do see if she can do anything to help. Percy is mot really used to the living and is used to being scoffed and laughed at, but Lonesome Point is different from the beginning. They welcome her and befriend her, especially as she proves her validity in her work.

John and Percy work together very quickly after she finds a clue that sends them on the path of enlightenment to lily's death and they find themselves getting closer quite quickly, especially as Percy challenges John in ways to bring him back to life again.

We get the element of danger that we get from the previous books and we also get the emotional attachment between the characters to the point that you are routing for them to get together and really wanting that happy ending to happen.

After the epilogue you get a sense of closure from the group of adults, but its great to see the beginning of the spin off series that will focus on the kids and to begin with Peyton and Clem.

I really can't wait to see what happens with the kids :)

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Jessie Evans, gave up a career as an international woman of mystery to write the sexy, contemporary romances she loves to read.

She's married to the man of her dreams, and together they're raising a few adorable, mischievous children in a cottage in the jungle. She grew up in rural Arkansas, spending summers running wild, being chewed by chiggers, and now appreciates her home in a chigger-free part of the world even more.

When she's not writing, Jessie enjoys playing her dulcimer (badly), sewing the worlds ugliest quilts to give to her friends, going for bike rides with her house full of boys, and drifting in and out on the waves, feeling thankful for sun, surf, and lovely people to share them with.
