    This book is part of the Sharpe and Donovan series. The author explains the back story and relationships between characters in the book but I still had a hard time keeping them straight. It might be because I haven’t read all the previous books in the series. Readers who have kept up with the series will probably enjoy this book. There was a good plot about art fraud. There is suspense, murder and plenty of twists and turns in the book. My reason for the 3* rating is because I had trouble keepin This book is part of the Sharpe and Donovan series.

    Great suspense plus knitting! Art fraud, several murders, FBI and MI5 make for very interesting stuff,but it's the interweaving of plots, important characters, and the escalating tension to find the motives as well as learning more about the interpersonal relationships of the multiple essential characters that drives the reader to abandon other tasks and keep on reading.

The publisher's blurb gives some ideas but really can't convey the intensity of this very well written mystery. The romantic aspects are development of already established couples, not the seeking variety. There is no erotica either.I requested and received a free ebook courtesy of NetGalley and the publisher. Many thanks!

    I received this arc from NetGalley and Harlequin-Mira. Thank you! All thoughts and opinions are my own. I love the Sharpe series. Some more than others. I enjoyed this one more than The Thiefs Mark. Though this one had plenty of twists and turns, it didn't feel so lost. I knew whose POV I was reading. This is an engaging mystery with of who done it and why. Put on your thinking cap and see if you can connect all the dots, or if your surprised There are family issues, love and sorrow.

    Impostor's Lure (Kindle) by Carla Neggers ...only five stars that is all I can give this..not fair.. Thanks to #NetGalley for letting me preview this book. Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan are my favorites and their stories always have so many twists and turns.. I feel like I'm part of the story and it's great to touch base will their family members and friends. This was another great one and I can't wait for the next Sharpe and Donovan book. The "banshee" is still giving me chills...

    Impostors Lure is such an emotional book. This book has Emma’s dad’s Tim and his struggle with pain and opioids. My heart just broke for Emma and her family. This book didn’t end on a happy note. Carla Neggers is such a prolific writer. I received an advance review copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Now one of my favorites of the Sharpe and Donovan series. This one takes place mainly in New England, but there is still some Oliver in England and Wendell in Ireland. All of the Sharpe’s and Donovan’s were back, although one will be missing forevermore. Good story lines, entertaining and hard to put down.

    I enjoyed this story. The characters and mystery kept me intrigued. There was no shortage of mystery and I am looking forward to going back and reading more from this series. I am a fan of romantic suspense stories with good storylines and this did not disappoint.

    I have been reading Carla Neggers for years now. From romance to romantic suspense, she always delivers a top-notch book. This one was no exception, with a group of characters that I remember from her previous Sharpe and Donovans series and a solid plot line and decent mystery. If you have never read this author, and you like romantic suspense novels, you should give this author a try. I received this e-book from NetGalley in return for an unbiased review.

    Hate to say it, but I am finally disappointed in a Sharpe & Donovan book and deviating from my normal 4 star rating to give this a mere 2 stars. The story cranks along nominally until we hit the big reveal at about the 80% point. Then, the flow seems to hit a wall at high speed as it disappears into a disappointing resolution, disjointed dialogues out of nowhere, and disconnected tie up of loose ends. I do not know what happened to the end of this book, but I hope it is a one off since I hav Hate to say it, but I am finally disappointed in a Sharpe & Donovan book and deviating from my normal 4 star rating to give this a mere 2 stars.

    Another book in the Sharp and Donovan series. I do wish she would end this series as there is so much repeating of past story lines in each book. I did enjoy the book but it was confusing at times to keep up with all of the characters from both countries
