Review of 'Til Death by Sharon Sala!!

Hello my lovelies! I meant to do this last week but there have been some issues lately and I've gotten behind on my reviewing and pretty much everything else. The good news is, life is settling down!

I was honored to be approved to read this on NetGalley and let me tell you, I had high hopes for this book. I've read and adored pretty much all of Sharon Sala's books, especially her latest series, Rebel Ridge. If you haven't read a Sharon Sala book, you have no idea what you're missing :) Now then, time for the review!

About the book:
Publisher: Harlequin - MIRA
Expected Publication Date: March 26, 2013
My source for the book:
Genre: Romantic Suspense
He left in handcuffs. Now it’s time to set himself free.

Nearly twenty years after he was wrongly convicted of setting the fire that killed his father, Lincoln Fox returns to Rebel Ridge, Kentucky. There, deep in the Appalachians, the truth of that terrible night lies buried—and he’s sworn to uncover it.

His plans take an unexpected turn when, in the midst of a blizzard, he rescues Meg Walker from her wrecked car. Suddenly Linc discovers another reason to clear his name. Meg, his high school sweetheart, had always believed in his innocence, and if he wants a future with her, he has to show the world proof that she was right.

As the community chooses sides, those who once let a teenage boy take the fall for their crime are forced to raise the stakes. They kidnap Meg, leaving her to the mercy of the mountain. And a second rescue may be more than even Linc can manage….


Sharon Sala is without a doubt one of my favorite authors. 'Til Death is actually the third book in the Rebel Ridge series but you can read it by itself. I've read the previous two books and highly recommend it because you revisit the characters from Next of Kin and Don't Cry for Me.

So, what did I like about this book? Pretty much everything! The action starts right away with Meg running into some trouble, literally. Meg doesn't meet Linc right away, instead setting things up from each of their perspectives. Meg's having issues with an unknown assailant and Linc has returned home after a near death experience to try to clear his name. When he finds out about the trouble Meg has experienced, let's just say he's not pleased. They were high school sweethearts and both still loved each other after all this time.

My favorite thing about Sharon Sala is her ability to avoid angst for the sake of angst. Meg never believed Linc was guilty of his crimes and doesn't hold it against them. Linc doesn't avoid Meg thinking he's not good enough for her. They don't jump straight into bed with each other, but you can tell they both want to. I love the balance of romance and suspense and when I made the mistake of reading some of this before work, I ended up being late to work. Yes, it was just that good. If I didn't have meetings that day, I'd have probably called in sick.


I hated that it had to end :)

OVERALL VERDICT: 5/5 Blue Duckies!!

Sharon Sala is one of my go-to authors when I'm dying for well crafted, well developed romantic suspense. Her paperbacks on my bookshelf have some of the most worn spines of any of my books because of the times I go back and reread her books. This is a must read in my opinion. Can't wait for the next one!!

  1. Oh it sounds excellent Lindsay! I mentioned before but I've read her as Dinah but not as Sharon. I loved Tallchief.

    I'll have to see if we have these three at the bookstore tomorrow. I love the romances like theirs where they have a history together!
