Welcome to Ednaugust here on Textual Love. This month’s Author Spotlight falls on Ednah Walters / E.B. Walters. We’re going to be having an interview with the Author herself as well as Character Interviews from some of your favorite books as well as reviews of her Fitzgerald Family Series and fun look back posts to her other series and reviews plus a few giveaways later on in the month.
She wants her past hidden…
Amy Kincaid is running from her controlling ex-husband, who will stop at nothing to find her. With a new identity and a new job as a housekeeper, she just wants to be left alone to raise her daughter. Then Eddie Fitzgerald rolls into town and turns her world upside down.
He’s in the business of exposing the truth…
Eddie Fitzgerald, L.A.P.D.’s finest, lives for his job and nothing else, until he decides to take a break at the family summer home and is held at gunpoint by the most annoying, sassiest woman to ever cross his path. But something is off about Amy, and the more he learns about her, the more he’s convinced she’s a fugitive.
When her past catches up to her, Amy has no choice but to trust Eddie. Unfortunately, Eddie has demons of his own, and struggles with the decision to protect her or uphold the law.
The truth takes them down a deadly path, and only love can save them
***I own a copy of this book. All thoughts are 100% my own.***
We meet Amy while she’s on the lam from her ex-husband, a crooked cop. She becomes the housekeeper for Baron and Kara (from Kiss Me Crazy) on a lake in Idaho. Eddie is in trouble on the force and is on a unpaid suspension due to his temper and his loyalty. So he decided to take some time away from L.A. and take a couple of weeks at Baron’s vacation house. He didn’t expect Amy to be there. He was expecting a 60+ year old woman. Amy wasn’t expecting Eddie. And neither of them expected the hot and heavy attraction between them. But Amy can’t think about that, she has a little girl to think about. Little did she know that that little girl was a key to Eddie’s heart. But how can they make it work together when they have so many things working against them.
Amy, though a victim of many strange crimes, a murdered fiance, and a deranged ex-husband, is not one to play a victim. She’s all sass and attitude and a willingness to learn how to kick major butt! Eddie….oh Eddie. I’ve noticed that in most of Ms. Walters’ books there is THAT guy that makes girl’s hearts pitter patter. And in this series I had thought it could possibly be Vince. That’s until I met Eddie. Yeah, Eddie is the Fitzgerald Family’s “Echo”. And anyone who’s read the Runes Series knows all about Echo. Eddie is fierce, loyal, intense and whoa momma! And honestly, Amy is so well written that I can see how they work well together. So far, THIS is my favorite of the Fitzgerald Family books.
Ms. Walters is winding through the years between our first Fitzgerald book Slow Burn to now with Eddie. And we catch glimpses of all the wonderful stories we’ve read so far, only these couples have matured and grown in their love for one another. The Fitzgerald Clan is growing by leaps and bounds. I’m sure one day we might be reading stories about those kids. Well maybe one or two of them anyway. So though all these books are stand alone books, I would never suggest anyone read them out of order. I love these books and I feel like I’m growing with them all. Kudos to Ms. Walters for that feeling that she’s given me. I don’t feel like I’m a voyeur in their family, but rather that I’m a part of it. So would I recommend this book? I’m beginning to wonder if this isn’t a redundant question by now….I’m sure you can figure out the answer to that well enough. Just know that the couple in this is combustible and it’s hawt. So no kiddos reading it.
