Summary

Laura Ramirez was loved by everyone. The men all wanted her, yet the women didn't hate her. She was just the type of person that was liked by all... or was she? Laura thought she was meeting her boyfriend in a private location. When she arrived, he wasn't there. And whoever was there sent her fleeing for her life under the shadows of the Costa Rican rain forest.

Lela Charles never imagined that working for the Alexanders would involve traveling out of the country. After breaking up with Jordan Alexander six weeks ago, they are thrown back together to find a missing resort employee or bring back her body. They'll have to put their differences aside to solve the case. But Lela isn't so sure she can do that when one of Jordan's old flames shows up to help investigate the case.

Under the Shadows

Another completely addicting story. I might even say this was my favorite. Lela and the Alexanders have to go to Costa Rica for an assignment and things get very interesting.

Book 4

The author built up speed from page one and didn't let up. The team goes to search for a missing woman. During this time some members of the team are caught in the crosshairs of a very dangerous person. The author is brilliant in her descriptions of this wonderful area of the world!

Book 5 I Humbly Beseech You <3 LOL

WOW - The Alexander/Charles Dynamic is ever so amazing in this series :)
Marla's words truly shine in pure magnificence under the smooth tones of DC Cole.

I read books 1 - 3 and found them so inspiring and so tangible, Marla Josephs truly brings the lives of her characters and presents them in such a profound way one can't help but become consumed with the adventure, danger, the bond each individual has and the depth of their growth as individuals and as a group - the loyalty - the fierce devotion and dedication and true acceptance and welcome they give you when invited into their lives and their family.

listening to DC's delivery of each character I had moments of glee at how he vocalised Daisy such a sassy little thing she is lol and Grace lol he really did all the characters justice Lela was and always is amazing her strength, determination and self preservation albeit frustrating at times but identifiable and just so worthy...

The tangible twists and turns of Lela and Jordan's friendship/Relationship had my mind splitting in so many different directions and was truly amazing to experience lol I wish I had the connection with someone that they have ;-) right down to thoughts and dream manifestation lol :-p 5 stars most definitely

The South American Characters blew my mind and there were many times I closed my eyes and was swept away with DC bringing Marla's words and characters journey to life in my minds eye *applause and standing ovation to both Author and Narrator*

DC's control of Voicing Ethan, Blake, Shane, Jordan and Logan - like Daisy DC really outshone and his voice for Ethan gave me such a giggle it was kind'a on point.. although I loved all the characters and the way DC Cole performed their characters was just amazing .

I experienced the highs and the lows,LUST and Passion mingled within the drama and the danger holds the reader and listener in such a prolific way
the way Marla's words were executed and the action sequences delivered by DC Cole's narration made this a 5 Star experience for me and I truly cannot wait for the next installation.

definitely a series I would recommend for future reading and listening pleasure

Thankyou <3 for the most amazing Costa Rican experience it truly makes me want to place the destination onto my bucket list <3

Thankyou Marla (& DC) for such an amazing gift <3 it is truly an honor and I am ever so grateful :)

I love everything Marla Josephs!

This story was fantastic. I love a good mystery and when the story started with a bang from Chapter 1, I was hooked to the end. The writing is so descriptive you feel like you are in Costa Rica with the characters. The story was great and of course DC Cole never disappoints with his narrations.

Marla Joseph's does it again

I would have to say this is the best book by far in the Alexander Ranch Series books. Usually, the more you get into them, the more they start to just drag on looking for a storyline. This is definitely not the case here. Kept me on my toes the whole time. I normally try to figure out who it is along the way, but Marla just kept throwing curve balls and you didn't find out till the very end. Excellent book and highly recommended.

Is Jordan moving on from Lela?

It’s been 6wks since Lela dumped Jordan and she has acted a part time job with Alexander Consulting. The newest case is to locate a missing resort worker in Costa Rica. Upon arrival in the country, the team is met by the hotel bus driver and Detective Rosa Sandoval. The woman immediately starts to paw Jordan and Lela is doing her best to act unaffected. Is Jordan moving on? How will this affect Lela’s ability to work with the team? As the team trek through Costa Rica and Nicaragua and question workers at the current resort, as well as the woman’s former employer, they appear to be getting nowhere. That said, the action is fantastic...one of the team is almost poisoned & another is shot, Will they solve this mystery and return home intact or will they leave someone behind? I’m still, and forever will be team Jordan!!! Glad that he got an HEA.
Great book, awesome series and even better narration!!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Really great story!

I really love the Alexander Ranch Series, a paranormal romantic suspense. This book is as good as the others in the Series. All characters are beautiful and interesting. Now I want to visit the Costa Rica! The narration by DC Cole is very great, as usual. I can't wait for the next story written by Marla Josephs!

Excellent listen!

Love this book! Plenty of action that kept me hooked and on the edge of my seat. Love the Alexander Ranch series and characters, Lela and Jordan are great together, and I love the humor in the character interactions. Amazing narrator, he really brought the story and characters to life by capturing the emotions expressed. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Exciting, Intriguing, and Sexy Mystery!

Wow, what an exciting, intriguing, sexy mystery! The fourth book in the Alexander Ranch series takes us to exotic locations for their latest investigation. Lela joins the team but is still unsure why they want her there. She plays a major roll in helping them interview friends and coworkers of Laura, who is missing, and believed to be in grave danger. This fascinating investigation takes us to beautiful locations where romantic feelings and gestures bring couples together and jealous actions from others. There are so many thrilling chase scenes, gunfights, and near death experiences.
The closer they get to the truth the more danger they all face. Lela and the team must use all their extraordinary skills to find Laura before it's too late.
DC Cole did an exceptional job narrating. His voice changes and slight nuances gave the slightest actions life. Cole along with Author Marla Josephs effortless way of including minor observations that paint a colorful and complete picture, bring us into this world easily.
This series just gets better and better and I can't wait to see where their investigations take us next!
