Review of The Sniper and The Wolf by Scott McEwen

The Sniper and the Wolf: A Sniper Elite NovelIn The Sniper and The Wolf, Gil Shannon returns with a surprise ally in order to thwart a terrorist plot. As in his previous books, Shannon is up against terrorists about to harm the world. In this instance, the threat is against the US economy.

Although not particularly a fan of war books or movies, I did find this to be an enjoyable read, even though at times I found myself completely baffled. Then again, I'm not up to date on all the war/army related agencies. Scott definitely knows his stuff. I don't think anyone will come away disappointed.

A Good Killing by Allison Leotta

A Good Killing is a bit difficult to review without giving away details of the book.
Product DetailsDC Prosecuting Attorney, Anna Curtis is summoned home to defend her sister in the murder of a popular high school coach.  In order to properly represent her, she has to get permission from DC office.

Anna’s high school boyfriend is now the sheriff who might hold a grudge for the way she left him. Anna is already emotional since her near-wedding was suddenly called off. Tensions run  Then the discovers that the amputee whom she plans to have a friends-with-benefits only relationship might be stealing her heart. This book is a mix of romance and mystery right up to the end.

We also learn the coach had a shady past and someone is helping to keep it a secret.
The ending is a bit off beat, and I wasn't sure how I felt about it (you’ll have to read to find out why). 

Allision Leotta has not disappointed me yet. Can’t wait for her next book.   

I had guessed who the killer was pretty early on, although there were some twists and turns associated with it.
