Review by Book Savvy Babe
The Organ Grinder is a mystery/thriller novel.  There is quite a bit of action.  Rebecca is a reporter who lost her memory after being captured, beaten, and brutally raped behind enemy lines.  Kane is the former flame and Royal Marine sworn to bring Rebecca home to London safely, despite more violent attacks and attempts to kill Rebecca for good.

There is a lot of action in this book.  There are war scenes from Kane and Rebecca’s early relationship as well as violent murder attempts, and descriptions of the violence done to the character Rebecca.  I have to say it, if you are sensitive to violence and violence against woman, be warned, it is described in this book.

The Organ Grinder is fast paced, and definitely suspenseful.  The reader is constantly trying to figure out how the pieces of the puzzle fit together, right along with the characters, making for a compelling read.  Rebecca is a tough girl, the alpha female type, and Kane is the alpha male.  A good portion of the book is dedicated to the relationship between the two, how it began, what went wrong, how they grew and changed.  Despite of the devastating surroundings, the tender relationship between Rebecca and Kane provided peaceful relief and a well-balanced novel.

Altogether, The Organ Grinder was a pretty solid novel with interesting characters and action packed setting.  Mystery and suspense fans, this is a good pick.
