More Than Anything (Magnolia Beach #3) by Kimberly Lang




https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30177876-more-than-anything?ac=1&from_search=true






Running the Bay Breeze marina means Shelby Tanner is used to fielding strange requests from vacationers, but she is still less than amused when she gets a call in the middle of the night to rescue a boat stranded nearby. The clueless sailor is infuriatingly inexperienced—yet also frustratingly attractive.

Architect Declan Hyde only planned on stopping in Alabama briefly on his move from Chicago to Miami, but Magnolia Beach is proving to be more captivating than he imagined. For one thing, there’s the sweet, Southern charm. For another, there’s the stunning tomboy who rescued him from the bay and keeps invading his thoughts.

As the time draws near for Declan to weigh anchor, he begins to realize that Shelby may have saved more than his boat that night—and leaving Magnolia Beach might set his lonely heart permanently adrift.


 
You know those small town lonely heart tv series movies you see on Lifetime, LMN, and Hallmark?
That's More Than Anything in a nutshell. 
I loved Shelby and Declan together because it brought out a lot of that sass out of Shelby and more than a little growth in Declan. I love Langs comedic voice. She captures sarcasm and exasperation perfectly but what she really does best is depicting how much her characters grow - both as individuals and as a couple once Shelby sees past Declans frustrating ignorance and his more than attractive exterior to the man inside. 
Shelby kind of grounds Declan and opens both his heart and his mind to what's truly missing in his life. Its rather beautiful and more than a little sexy once things start to heat up between them. 
More Than Anything is funny, its sweet, its romantic, its everything you want in a romance and more.

When All The Girls Have Gone by Jayne Ann Krentz




https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/29429938-when-all-the-girls-have-gone?ac=1&from_search=true






When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her step-sister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished.

Beautiful, brilliant—and reckless—Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames—literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.

After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn’s closest friends, women in a Seattle-based online investment club, for answers. But what they find is chilling…

When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn’s past are threatening to consume her—and anyone else who gets in their way.




 
Again Krentz continues her masterful story telling in this gripping read. When All The Girls Have Gone was highly emotional for me personally which affected how long it took me to finish this book. 
Keep in mind there is mention of sensitive topics like kidnappings, missing persons, rapes, murders etc but its not so heavy on those details that it negatively affects the reader. 
It never ceases to amaze me how well Krentz taps into the mind of our bad guy and brings him to life the way she does, draw in all the dead bodies and who's who / who dunnit going on and you got quite an exciting read. 
Of course Krentz books are nothing without its cast which are fantastic, determined and full of their own bright personalities that readers latch onto them from the start. I really liked both Charlotte and Max - I thought they were perfect for this adventure. 
If you haven't read this book I highly recommend it.
