I read and thoroughly enjoyed the first book, Saving Grace. It left me wanting to hear more about Katie, her life, her loves and what craziness is going to creep into her life next. This second book, Leaving Annalise, didn't fail to deliver! You can always find a character that is either "just like you" or someone you know, so it makes it easy to relate to her books. Katie is so likeable, but definitely not perfect. She has a fiery temper and a strange cleaning phobia/obsession. One reviewer stated "We get it, they're in love" but it isn't annoying or over the top to me, it's refreshing to read about a love like Katie and Nick have found. Who doesn't want a man who adores his wife and still gives her chills and butterflies. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book for the Katie & Annalise series!

Book 2 over 600 pages
This book 2 of a series. It cost $1.99 and is a free standing book. The editing is pretty good. There is some rather tame sex and violence. I really enjoyed this novel. It has over 600 pages, I think it is more like 647, but I am not quite sure. It picks up right where book 1 stopped. Book 3 cost $3.99. There is a bit more about the Jumbie in this novel, although I am unfamilar with voodoo, it still seems like a ghost to me. In this book, Kate gets more men in her life, as it takes unexpected turns. Most of them seem to have an evil side. At times the island lingo gets a bit annoying, but nothing major. The is a hint of religion, some fortune telling, no cursing, romance, the dogs make it through just fine and there is lots of adventure. This book is not quite as chick lit as one was. I enjoyed this story very much. Since the writing is more adult orientated, I recommend this book for ages 16 and up.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

At first, I thought this was going to be a gushy romantic novel, not my genre. However, I was pleasantly surprised.
It turned out to be a romantic suspense that I thoroughly enjoyed. Apparently so, as I writing this review at 3:00 in the
morning which is the time I finished. It was very well written with lots of plot twists and action. The fact that it was written
by a Texan with scenes from Texas made me enjoy it even further. I highly recommend this book!!!
And, I look forward to reading others in this series.

Just like Saving Grace, the first book in the series, Leaving Annalise is a fast-paced entertaining romantic mystery that has just the right amount of drama, suspense and romance that keeps the readers intrigued and turning the pages. Author Pamela Fagan Hutchins weaves an exciting and humorous tale told in the first person narrative by sassy Katie Connell. Katie takes the reader along for the ride on her latest adventure with jumbie Annalise on the island of St. Marcos. This story centers around the relationship between Katie and Nick, but another murder mystery and ensuing mayhem shakes things up on this picturesque island. It has clever subplots, drama, action and suspense, and zany characters that entices the reader to follow along as Katie continues to renovate the jumbie house with a series of mysterious mishaps, navigates her roller coaster love life with Nick and a crazy stalker named Brad in pursuit, and tries to stay one step ahead of trouble that always seems to follow her. And if that isn't enough for you, it has some heartfelt and emotional romance and friendship thrown in the mix.
Leaving Annalise is part of a thoroughly entertaining romantic mystery series. Author Pamela Fagan Hutchins has a way of keeping the readers captivated with Katie's latest adventures, and oh by the way, there is more adventures in the works when Finding Harmony, book three in the series is published in February 2014!
