Halloween is fast approaching! So, in the spirit of the season, I decided to read a thriller that includes zombies, automatons, cyborgs, alchemy, and people with mutation-caused fishy qualities.
Today is Patriot Day in the United States, so I knew I wanted to review a contemporary romantic suspense novel with an FBI or CIA agent as a character. When I saw Sizzle, by Julie Garwood, in the queue of books I have crowding up my Kindle app, I knew it was the one. Julie Garwood always engages me with her strong protagonists - both male and female - and the unlikely events that she puts them through.
I mentioned in my review of Good Christian B****es that I bought the book from a 2 for $8 sale rack. Seeing Red was the second book I bought that day and I cannot wait to tell you about it!
Never Say Spy
I came across Never Say Spy by Diane Henders in the Kindle bookstore and I couldn’t resist buying it. You all know I’m a huge fan of romances and I love to sink myself into a good series where I can escape for days, but that’s not why I wanted to buy this book. Nope. I bought Never Say Spy because I wanted to lose myself in a different kind of fantasy: Good Girl Gone Spy 😉
If you’ve read my reviews of the Web of Lies series or Chosen for Power by Kathleen Brooks, you already know that she writes book series that I track obsessively. Well, she recently released the first book of a new series about the small North Carolina town of Shadow’s Landing - a series that intersects with the several series she has written about the town of Keeneston, Kentucky.
Ice by Linda Howard
It is getting colder here in Arkansas, which means it must be freezing elsewhere! In honor of the weather, I’m reviewing a book written by Linda Howard called Ice.
I was given my first Linda Howard novel my junior year of high school as a going away present. My family moved from Kansas to New York and my friend group, knowing how much I enjoyed escaping into romance novels, gave me To Die For. Thus began my obsession with Howard’s particular brand of sarcasm...and her romance novels, too.
Web of Lies Series
I read Whispered Lies, the first book in the Web of Lies series, because I discovered it was written by the author of one of my favorite guilty-pleasures series. These books take place in and around Washington, D.C. and pretty much all of the characters are government employees. Web of Lies is a little different and a lot darker than the Kentucky series; it falls into the genre of political conspiracy thriller and romance. I thought it was an appropriate genre to review, seeing as how we just had elections a couple of weeks ago.
Author Spotlight: Heather Graham
Author Spotlight: Heather Graham Reviewer: Bethany Quesnell To understand why I am a fan of Heather Graham, you should probably know a little bit about me and how I became acquainted with her books. I have been an avid reader since the second grade when I read The Flim Flam Man. As an elementary schooler,…
