What are Readers Saying

About Sleepin' Alone

deef: 5 Star

"I don't normally read romance novels, leaning more to suspense and mystery, but a friend recommended this, so I gave it a try. Wow! It may be classified as a romance, but the murder mystery unraveled in fascinating ways and kept me glued to the pages. The plot is innovative, detailed and well constructed. I felt like I knew the characters and the places described. The author's writing style reminds me of James Patterson, Louise Penny or Daniel Silva."

coolestmommie: 5 Star

Sleepin' Alone is another fantastic addition to the Aspen Gold Series. Bernadette Jones writes characters with such compelling storylines that I couldn't put the book down. Hunter Lawe has been so involved and in so deep on his undercover assignment that he no longer really sees himself as the good guy.


Ruby has some nasty wounds, a big bump on her head and no memory of several months of her life.  So when Hunter sees her and accuses her of terrible things, she doesn't know what to think as she just can't remember. Will Hunter protect her or use her?

I was so involved in the story, it felt as if I was in the story. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next and I laughed and cried along with the characters. It's not often a book transports you so fully away into its pages, but Sleepin' Alone was that book. It is a part of the Aspen Gold Series, but does stand alone so you can read and not be lost. Enjoy!
