An Inconvenient Beauty is the fourth book in Kristi Ann Hunter’s Hawthorne House Regency series. This book does a wonderful job of wrapping up the series if you’ve read all of the previous novels, but it is really easy to read as a stand alone novel as well, because each book contains a unique storyline. For the best experience you should read all of the previous installments, because the characters do continue and might get a little confusing.

Isabella Breckenridge is Frederica’s cousin, and although Frederica pushes Isabella and Griffith together, Isabella has some secrets she’s hiding and tries to stay away despite her attraction.

Vanishing Point is the fourth book in Lisa Harris’s Nikki Boyd Files series, about a missing persons investigator who has the mystery of her long-missing sister at the back of her mind. Each of the books in the series has a stand alone case to be solved, but it also follows Nikki’s developing relationship with Tyler and her ongoing pursuit of her sister’s whereabouts. This novel delves into the serial murders of young girls, and a possible tie-in to Nikki’s sister. If you like books featuring missing people and books that have quite a few twists, this is an excellent series. Harris is a talented thriller writer.
