Review

"A fresh new voice on the clean-with-steam romance scene, Amy Leigh Simpson is an author you will want to add to your TBR list." -Serena Chase, USA Today

About the Author

Amy Leigh Simpson writes clean romance mysteries with honesty and humor, sweetness and spice, and gritty reality covered by grace. When she's not stealing moments at naptime to squeeze out a few more adventures in storyland, she's chasing around two tow-headed miscreants (Ahem)--boys, playing dress up with one sweet princess baby, and being the very blessed wife to the coolest, most swoon-worthy man alive. Amy is a Midwestern-girl, a singer, blogger, runner, coffee-addict, and foodie. Her Sports Medicine degree is wasted patching up daily boo boo's, but whatever is left usually finds its way onto the page with fluttering hearts, blood and guts, and scars that lead to happily ever after. Amy's female protagonists send you down a winding road in her romance murder mystery books. If you're looking for romance, female sleuth contemporary mystery romance books and romantic novels by Amy Leigh Simpson will surely whet your appetite.

Oh. My. Word. I finished Winters Ashes this morning, after eventually giving in to sleep around 1am last night! The characters leap out of the page at you and the plot just never gives up. Right when you think it's all sorted another twist which you didn't see coming happens. Finn and Jocelyn have know each other for years, but at high school something happened which hurt them both deeply. We are gradually allowed into their hearts and begin to understand how this has affected their lives. Fire and ice is a great way to describe their relationship and it's so much fun each time they meet. Archer and Sadie from When Fall Fades are both on the book too and it's fun to see how their relationship has progressed. Fire, stalkers, misunderstandings and a healthy dose of incredible romance make this book unputdownable!

So I absolutely loved When Fall Fades and fell in love with Finn and Joss in that debut. I was eagerly anticipating this sophomore release and boy did it not disappoint. No sophomore slump here. In fact, it's not just as good as the debut, it's miles better. The writing is better, characterization is on point and the pacing is pretty much perfect. To top it off the mystery is intriguing and kept me on my toes. One thing I love about Amy's writing is that she has the perfect blend of romance and mystery, and she weaves the together so effortlessly that makes for a flawless read.

I love Joss's tender heart, she so badly wants to believe in God's goodness but cannot see it in her life. Her relationship with her father and all that she's been through broke my heart and I wanted to badly for her to find the hope and love and peace that can only be found in Jesus. Finn's scars were also heartbreaking. I can only imagine what first responders go through but as a firefighter, Finn is battling his own demons and even though he knows God is good and God can give him peace, he struggles with forgiving himself and letting go of the pain he's going through. I love that both characters were searching for answers in God, and because His power is made string in our weakness, so I knew God would meet them in their darkest times.

When these two broken people are thrown together due to the threat on Joss's life things get even crazier. Their relationship, even before the threat, had always been tumultuous, and with the stakes so high they were bound to either unite as a team or destroy each other. One thing that is evident throughout is that hurt people, hurt people, and the barriers they already had up against each other threatened to destroy them for good several times.

Romantic suspense oozing tension and secrets...

Joselyn Whyte, heiress to the Whyte Empire and daughter of a Senatorial hopeful, is targeted by an arsonist and saved by Finn Carson, her high-school nemesis. When Finn is strong-armed by her father into posing as her boyfriend for the purposes of protection detail, the mystery of the arsonist is not the only mystery that begins unraveling.

This was one of those that had me turning the pages to find out what happened next, so tightly wound was the suspense. The characters, too, felt well-rounded and relatable, while the romance was tangible and dreamy. For me, the ending let the book down, as it felt out-of-character (but then, I've never lived in a small town in the US) and left me feeling flat. But if you don't mind your HEAs with a rushed and somewhat obsessive feel to them, this is a great romantic suspense read.

*Thank you to the publisher for a free copy of the book.

I've never been big on romance type stories but author Amy Leigh Simpson is starting to change that! Maybe its because her romance books are "steamy" but not "smutty"! Maybe its because her books are so much more than a romance novel? Just like in her 1st book, " When Fall Fades", Amy has a well written romance, mystery and action all rolled up in one that kept me turning the pages from the time I picked it up until I was at the end of this story!
I don't like giving away the whole story in reviews but will say that in "From Winter's Ashes" we get an extension of some of the characters from her 1st book We still see some characters from the 1st book but also meet new ones!. This one is more about Sadie's brother Finn, who looks more like a California surfer dude than a firefighter from the St. Louis suburb of Kirkwood, Missouri! I'm really looking forward to more books by Amy!

5.0 out of 5 stars An intriguing tale true to Simpson's unique voice and style! 9 Jun. 2016
By N. Deese - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Amy Leigh Simpson is a brilliant wordsmith. Wow. This author knows how to write fresh and feverish!
Although mystery romance is not my usual go-to genre, I so enjoyed From Winter's Ashes. The characters, true to Simpson's unique style, are full of spark and sass, yet underneath the sarcasm is something much deeper: layers of secrets that keep the hero and heroine secluded from love (and from each other). There's an intriguing mystery thread and LOTS of danger to be found inside the pages of FWA, and I don't want to spoil anything but....it's not who you think. *insert evil laugh here*
This book has edge and wit and lots and lots of lyrical goodness that made my little writer's heart pitter patter to a happy beat.
A few of my favorite quotes:
- "It was either him or her, and the agony festering within was enough torment for ten lifetimes. He would not be the only one infested with pain. She would suffer hers, a swift justice, and then the retribution would begin and the balance restored."
-"His nose nuzzled against hers; his whisper rumbling against her skin like a warning thunder."
- "Something like panic, or was it anticipation, rent from her chest; the fraudulent feelings making a riot of her senses."
- "Hope slipped loose like a tendril of her hair on the wayward wind. The sound of their struggle like a reverb intruding upon the crisp winter silence."

5.0 out of 5 stars Romance plus Suspense makes for a Great Read 12 Jun. 2016
By Jewelry Diva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. It's the second book in the Girl Next Door Crime series. It was fun catching up with Sadie and Archer from book 1. This book however, was about Sadie's best friend Jocelyn and her older brother Finn. I loved the banter and flirty innuendos from both Jocelyn and Finn. They both had quite an adventure in this suspense driven book. The romance was as it was described as "clean with some steam". I will say for sensitive readers there are a few mild curse words. The book was well written and the characters were well developed and I enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars the cadence of my inner voice as I read can provide as much enjoyment as the plot and content 7 Jun. 2016
By C Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Usually it takes me 2-3 times the length of time to read a book as amazon lists in the about the book section. It's not that I can't read fast, the cadence of my inner voice as I read can provide as much enjoyment as the plot and content. For the average modern novel this is comparable to finding old ice-crystal-riddled ice cream in the back of your freezer when the AC goes out in the middle of summer-it's enjoyable and a good distraction. Reading Amy Leigh Simpson, is being swept away to my favorite ice cream shop nestled between the base of a mountain and a river, and eating the creamiest, smoothest ice cream on a shady bench with a cool breeze. I urge you to take your time with this novel; let the love, time, effort, passion, and talent that crafted the story of the hot fireman warming the ice princess's heart germinate.

By Martha A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was an okay read. I felt like though that it had a bit too graphic of focus on the sexual component in the story. I felt like I could not connect with the characters as every time they saw one another they were kissing, groping or doing something physical. There was not a lot of connection there besides the raw sexual force.

As the book went on, you got the history, and I connected a bit more, but I still struggled with them.
I felt like the rest of the story got lost in the middle there somehow. So, if you are looking for more of a romance, this is the book for you. A story with meaning. Probably choose another read.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book! 13 Jun. 2016
By Lee Husemann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If I could, I would give this book more than 5 stars. I loved the characters, the storyline, the suspense and twists and turns. I rarely read romance novels but I am glad I decided to give this book a chance. I was held captive from the first few pages and found myself getting up during the night to "read just a little more." I was so impressed with this book that I ordered Amy Leigh Simpson's book 1 of this series. I hope there will be a #3 book from Ms. Simpson.
