Blog Tour: Morning My Angel by Sue Brown #Review #Giveaway



Crossovers - Sue Brown

“Sue Brown, you are charged with numerous counts of recycling your characters in your books. How do you plead?”
“Guilty as charged.”
Sorry, so not sorry, dear readers. Yes, I do have numerous cross-overs in my books, and I love it when people spot them.
The thing about my boys and their extended families, is they never really shut up. Even after their love story is written, they still pop up to tell me how they are doing. Life doesn’t stop so why should they?
The Isle books are probably the centre of my Brit-based universe, but the Lyon Road vet books run a close second, and they have crossed over (in Island Doctor). A cousin of Sam Owens appeared in A Cock in the Window, and now, Jesse and Dan appear in Morning My Angel.
One of the things I had drummed into me is that readers get fed up with the same characters. I can understand this in romance. If you revel in the thrill of the initial meet and development of the relationship, then ‘real life’ can get tedious. You have to think of things to happen ‘to’ them, and how often has the misunderstanding/painful split trope been used? If the focus of your plot is something other than romance, like a crime-fighting duo, then it’s easier to keep writing about them. Think of Charlie Cochrane’s exquisite Cambridge Fellows mysteries.
At the moment I don’t have a crime-fighting duo, but I have plans… *nods*. Watch this space. It may be a crossover.


Josh Cooper, top US security field agent, is sent on an inter-agency assignment to London, when a partner in his firm goes missing in suspicious circumstances. Used to working in sole charge of his well-honed team, he clashes heads with the handsome, but pompous Cal, his UK co-operator and superior. Josh’s gut tells him something is wrong. He’s being kept out of the loop and Cal’s agenda is running on a different path. 

He also has a personal issue to deal with. He’s involved in a cyber-relationship with “Charlie”, an unknown man who connected with Josh by accident. Their banter has led to deeper respect and a sexual interest, but now Josh is faced with a growing attraction to Cal. Between this conflict and the tension of the mission, Josh’s heart and head are overworked and confused. Things can’t get much worse. 

Then Josh discovers the enemies he’s seeking have a new target: him.


I have to say first and foremost that this story will keep you on your toes. There’s mysteries left and right with this book. But, I’m going to talk about Josh for a moment. He was absolutely my favorite character in this. Yes, it’s told in his POV so that puts him at an advantage but still… He’s witty, perfect dry humor, good looking, just brilliant. I really feel it was wise to keep it in his POV and not head hop. Though I will say I wanted to get into Cal’s head a time or two. But, again, knowing what I know now; it was smart of the author to do it how she did.

Josh has this internet love, Charlie, and the Morning My Angel is what Charlie says to him, via IM, every day in greeting. I thought the Angel and Charlie nicknames were adorable! When Josh is told to pack up and head to London with his bodyguards Gil and Landry he does. One of the head guys has gone missing and even though this isn’t really what Josh does for a living, he goes.

This story had a tremendous amount of bumps in the road throwing you off course many times. The whodunit, I felt, was far too tricky to figure out and when the book ended and the bad people/person revealed I really got the impression that you weren’t really supposed to have figured it out. I’m usually good at the clues and always get it but this time was a no go in that department. I went back a few times after it ended to see where I missed the clues but, no, not really there. So, if that was the author’s intention than bravo. She got me. 

The secondary characters were perfect and each filled their role perfectly. Jesse is fabulous and I would LOVE to read his story. No doubt he has an incredible one.

All in all I liked this story a lot. It was engaging and exciting and romantic in between all the gun fights, car chases, and bombs.
