#Review Shell Game by Chris Keniston #ContemporaryRomance

Title: Shell Game
Author: Chris Keniston
Rating: 4 stars

Whenever I read a new to me author I never quite know what to expect. I have a soft spot for military heroes, so I was crossing my fingers that this would be a good one. 

Luke a Sharla were a fun couple. Their meeting is entertaining and I enjoyed the build up between them. The author did a good job with the two characters backstories and creating realistic obstacles for them to overcome. 

My only real complaint with this story was that at times the sub plot seemed to overshadow the romance. I wanted more Luke and Sharla and less of the 'Shell Game'. Even so, I loved Sharla's grandmother and Herbie. I felt they gave the story a well rounded feel. 

Good editing, and the story has a nice flow to it. I would have liked to have seen some more private moments between Luke and Sharla, but the ones we got were good.

I would recommend this to readers who are looking for a light dose of mystery/suspense with their romance.


Author Bio

A native New Yorker, Chris Keniston was on her way to Australia when she fell in love with North Texas. Little did she know the balmy seventy-degree October days would turn into fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk heat in August!
Twenty years later, she started scribbling short stories about her favorite TV shows, giving them lives more to her liking - and the elusive happy ending. Not long after, a dear friend dragged her to a local writers’ meeting. After winning multiple writing contests and making the finals in the Romance Writers of America’s prestigious Golden Heart contest, she now spends her days, and nights, writing contemporary romantic fiction with lots of emotion, plenty of surprises, and, of course, the happily ever after.
Chris lives in suburban Dallas with her husband, two human children, and two canine children. Though she loves her puppies equally, she admits being especially attached to her German Shepherd rescue named Gunny. After all, even dogs deserve a happily ever after.
