Nonna doesn't understand why there are skeletons and demons everywhere. Mom is threatening to stitch a devil into Nonna's pillowcase if she doesn't shut up. Bek is bumbling over a date with Jason, the handsome FBI agent who conveniently got himself relocated to Austin, and I... Well. I'm considering running away to a town without the crazies.
Nothing new here.
Everything is going smoothly-too smoothly-and I can't shake the feeling that something is about to happen. Drake insists I'm being paranoid... But when a body turns up at the Holly Woods Halloween party, we have a whole lot more than a murderer to worry about.
Because the prime suspect is his mom.
And it's my job to prove she's innocent.
(Tied Bond is the fourth book in the Holly Woods Files series and while it is a complete story, it cannot be read as a standalone. It is preceded by Twisted Bond, Tangled Bond, and Tethered Bond.)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Tied Bond by Emma Hart is the fourth book in her HollyWoods Files series. It was a fantastic read with the characters we have come to love from Holly Woods, Nonna and her parrot not least among them. The crime story seemed simple this go around, until it wasn't and each new find in the case found Drake's mom looking more and more like the culprit. With more than just her PI reputation on the line, now it's her boyfriend's mother's innocence in question, Noelle is feeling the pressure of solving this apparently open and shut case with someone other than Gianna as the murderer. A fabulous read that was well-written and well-paced, with character developments I have been waiting for and ones I was surprised by. The only downfall, the wait for the next book in the Holly Woods series... Twirled Bond.
Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars “I know I tease him about it a lot, but it really is one of my favorite things about him. The strong, protective side of him that roars any time I come within a sniffing distance of danger is one of the parts I love about him most….Especially since he hasn’t yelled at me yet. It could totally change when we get back to my place, because I can practically feel the anger buzzing inside him, but you know. For now, I like that.” I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I just can’t get enough of this series. It is literally like getting to watch my favorite tv show, but instead, I get to hold the story in my hands. With each new installment, I can’t help but burn through the pages to see just what trouble or situation Noelle will find herself in next. From the moment you pick up Tied Bond, you are drawn into the story and won’t be able to put it down. When we meet up with Drake and Noelle, things are in a bit of chaos. Nonna and mom are fighting. Bek is stressing over a date with Jason. And everything that can go wrong does, especially when a dead body shows up at a Halloween party. To make matters worse, the prime suspect is Drake’s mom. So, now the question is, will Noelle be able to solve the crime and set Drake’s mother free?? Tied Bond is a fantastic addition to the Holly Woods Files series. It is entertaining and their certainly is never a dull moment. It’s got the perfect balance of action, suspense, drama and romance. Emma Hart has once again provided me with a fabulous story, and I for one can’t wait to see what hot water Noelle will land herself in next. Fans of this series, you will not be disappointed.
