My Thoughts…

Book five in The Edinburgh Crime Mysteries series intrigues the reader into the dark world past and present of Edinburgh’s crime scene. Hunter is the link in the crimes and the mystery as the reader is taken back in time to his first body, which disappears. Does a recent murder have connections to the cold case and what his Hunter’s connection to the two murders?

Authentic, diverse characters relatable dialogue and a twisty plot make this addictive reading. The mystery unfolds and reveals some of Hunter’s secrets too. The vividly portrayed setting and compelling characters give the story its noir crime ethos, which is evocative of these crime mysteries.

He found his one-and-only on land. But now that they’re at sea, will passion stay full steam ahead?

But when he strikes an instant connection with a Romanian beauty, he gets swept up in a hilarious, carefree, romantic escape to her native Transylvania. So when she must leave to work on a cruise ship, he impulsively dons his sailing cap and follows her aboard.

Though he was unprepared for the grueling onboard training of new hires, his determination to be with her surpasses his awkward American moments. But as the reality of long days and seasick nights sets in, dark secrets surface that threaten to pull their courtship under…

Will Brian need a lifejacket to keep his relationship afloat?

From Romania with Love is the first book in the delightful Gone with the Waves romantic comedy series, entirely of true events in the author’s life. If you enjoy travelogue-like settings, witty banter, and reckless hearts, then you’ll adore Brian David Bruns’s continent-spanning adventure.

My Thoughts…

Humour, romance, secrets and travel are the components of this romantic comedy based on the author’s real-life experiences. The author has written the best-selling series Cruise Confidential, and this is a spin-off concentrating on his romance with the love of his life Romina.

Told informally and inclusively the reader shares the author’s love story, which has the same ups and downs, as travelling on the cruise ships. This is a delightful tale with an abundance of angst, laughter, poignancy, and romance. Being based on reality gives the story a unique appeal.

Brian David Bruns has adventured in over 60 countries to gather material for his books and won dozens of literary awards, including the USA REBA Grand Prize. Since his debut, Cruise Confidential, became a national bestseller, he has been featured on ABC 20/20, CBS Inside Edition, and in articles translated for a dozen nations.

Bruns writes of his global experiences with a self-mocking wit, an astute insight into human behavior, and a love of quirky history. After several years residing in Dracula’s hometown (yes, really), he and his Romanian wife now live in Las Vegas with their two old rescue cats, Julius and Caesar.
