Girl Blue (Brown & de Luca, #5)
GIRL BLUESo, I’m going along in my blissful life, waiting for my guy to get off his ass and pop the question and trying to put my next self-help book to bed, when I’m interrupted by a mental intruder. I’m suddenly doing a ride-along inside some stranger’s head, while the attached set of hands strangle a guy in the back seat of a car.It felt like I was killing the guy. But I didn’t, because I woke up cussing (not unusual) in my own bed beside my sexy cop and my blind bulldog. Said sexy cop then gets a text about a body, and I know it’s the man I just sort of murdered.Turns out Mister Picture-Wire Necktie isn’t the only victim. One of the others was punched in the face by our 19 year-old sort of kid in front of 20 witnesses right before he vanished. Jeremy is brought in for questioning by Mason’s own co-cops.The only other suspects are a woman who beams sweetness and light like a freakin’ earthbound angel, and an old horror movie star who’s supposed to be dead. And if those two are murderers, I’m Miz Manners.Mason wants them to be guilty because it would clear Jeremy. He thinks I’m keeping things from him, which I am. He thinks I’m not putting Jeremy first, which I totally am. This whole thing is getting between us. So I’ve gotta solve it, fast.Even if it means going face-to-face with a serial killer.But the vigilante is more broken than I bargained for, and is determined to silence me. Permanently.

    I love, love, love this series!Rachel is her usual self, still debating everything with her IN (=Inner B**ch) and using, but still trying to keep it secret, her NFP (=not f*cking psychic)! She's just plain fantastic! And her inner dialogue is as good as her aloud reasoning!Also Mason is good, even if he's slightly overshadowed by Rachel. Still he's just perfect for her!And let's NOT forget Hugo and Myrtle!I can absolutely see Rachel dressing them like this!

    I love these characters. Always happy to get a new book in this series. Rachel de Luca is a one of a kind character with her abilities and her inner thoughts are always hilarious. The story also had plenty of serious subject matter. A vigilante killer, teenage alcoholism, and all forms of mental health issues. This made for a captivating read from beginning to end. I cannot wait for the next de Luca and Brown book!!

Rachel is focused on moving her family into their new home, getting her office setup and hopefully getting Mason to move this relationship to the next level. When a nightmare wakes her, this one she's scared to discuss with Mason when he gets the call to go where a new body has been found. They are jsut starting to get over what happened when Josh's friend went missing and now they are looking for a killer.As the story develops we re-visit a story that L have loved for years The Gingerbread Man, which is a haunting romantic thriller, about missing children and a child predator. To this day that story haunts me, so it was good to see old friends again even if it meant dragging their story out into the light. Rachel is still trying to get a handle on her new ability to tap into the NFP knowing she has going on when she ends up meeting Lily Newman. As she digs deeper into how her gift is working now she accidentally uncovers a small mystery.It appears a serial killer is on the loose and no one can figure out what the victims have in common. Until one of the men disappear, he just happens to be Jeremy's professor who called him a liar and Jeremy reacted by punching him in the nose. Now Jeremy is a suspect and Mason is losing it. He's trying to find a way to get Jeremy from under suspicion while finding the killer responsible before the missing man becomes a victim. Rachel is feeling the pressure to perform and quickly.As the story unfolds, Mason and Rachel find themselves moving slightly out of sync. Mason is aware Rachel tried to lie to him, and now he's wondering what it is about this case that her covering for someone who could clear Jeremy. Rachel knows what she has seen can't be admitted into court and while she's never willing to risk her new family in this one case she's willing to bend the truth to protect Mason. Jeremy is starting to ask questions that Mason can't answer and it's all coming out and Mason is struggling.It's awesome reading them struggling with getting it right as parents and lovers. They are in sync most of the time and this case, and what's happening with Jeremy is throwing them for a loop. They never seemed to have the growing pains of most relationships, but now they are working on it. I loved the tension between them forced them to get real clear about what they were looking for. I loved how they handled the growing pains they were having as a family as well with Jeremy admitting he was struggling with everything. They felt so real compared to how characters can be written sometimes. I loved that Rachel could turn to her sister when she needed advice but at the end relied on what she knew about Mason to help her make the right call for them.The whodunit part of the story was well done and when it all was revealed I was like "holy hell". I knew based on what happened to Lily that it would have to do with child abuse but to realize how far some would go to try to 'cure' themselves made me sad. And yet I wanted to know like how could someone go that far in life and not realize that their plan wouldn't work?? Then I realize it's a human failing and was kind of thrown when she mentioned that the medallions were given to certain people and wondered if they all knew what had happened to them. Then I wondered if the woman realized that she was just as bad as those she condemned?? I just was so addicted that I finished the story in one day.I highly recommend the story my loves, especially because we get an update on previous characters that we love. I love that they didn't have a perfect life but a good realistic one even all these years later. ★★★★☆

    Another Great Installment This is the 7th book in the Brown and De Luca series. It’s been a long while since the last book but it reminds me how much I love this series. Rachel is NFS but she has a gift or a curse however you want to look at it. Mason is a cop and I just love them together. Someone is Murdering Bad Men and the worst kind of men and Rachel is in the murderers head. When Jeremy is accused of murdering his professor it’s a race against time to prove his innocence.

    Omg! This series is amazing. Can hardly wait for the next book. This series is one of my favorites and now I’ve got a new author to follow! Mason and Rachel are fire together. The “NFP,” the suspense, the crime fighting, and most of all the ROMANCE... you’ve got to read this series! The kids and the rest of the family and friends all make this story even better.

    I hope the author can be persuaded to add a couple more books to this series. Maggie Shayne creates such intriguing characters and I love the snappy dialogue of Rachel de Luca. Only Maggie can pull off those quick witted comebacks Rachel is known for.

    Boom!What a ride! I love these characters...Rachael is scary smart and between her potty mouth, no filter and the abilities she has....Well you are in for quite a story. The love story is down to earth, I adore that. There family is a hoot. Their loyalty for their own...epic. This book had some tough subject matter, child predators, teenage alcoholism and support. I’m looking forward to more in this series.
