Introducing a new #LeiCrimeKW book ~ CHARADE at SEA by Eden Baylee

This is the third novella for the Lei Crime Series on Kindle Worlds.

Charade at Sea follows A Snake in Paradise and SEAL of a Monk. They are stand-alone books although it's recommended that you read them in order to understand the symbolism woven throughout.
Snakes and strength prevail in A Snake in Paradise, where I introduce the main character, Lainey Lee.
Dhamma and endurance weave through SEAL of a Monk, and introduces ex-Navy SEAL Max Scott.
In Charade at Sea, Lainey and Max meet again in Hawaii.  It’s a romance/mystery and tackles the important issue of stolen valor.

 My Review

Charade at Sea by Eden Baylee is an unexpected story, especially after reading 'A Snake In Paradis'e and 'Seal of a Monk'.  Paradise is not always what you expect it to be. I was pulled in right away and couldn't wait for truths to be had. A very clever mystery that doesn’t get exposed all at once. 

I love the authors smooth writing style. She takes you in without over using fancy words or too many details. Reading her stories feels effortless and that is why I am always excited to discover a new Baylee release.

I read in breathless anticipation. We know things are not as they should be but we don’t now where it will lead or if there will be devastating circumstances. Charade at Sea was edgy and I liked it. 

Quote ~

She dreamt of being on the cruise. The waters were calm, no sign of a sinking ship or trouble at sea. She knew enough about dream therapy to decipher the symbolism. A cruise represented uncertainty. It could mean too much leisure during a difficult time, the idea of sailing through one’s problems. Or perhaps, it meant her relationship with Max seemed too easy.

Was she cruising effortlessly through it when she should have been more cautious? She awoke to a crawling sensation up her back. The feeling was not unpleasant, merely a gentle vibration on the top of her skin.

Eden's other two books are only 99 cents. Please grab them while they are on sale!
