Nobody’s Fool

Nobody's FoolFinally!

I have no idea why it took so long to finish reading this book. It’s actually a pretty good book. There are quite a lot of interesting and likable characters, and even some interesting and not so likable characters. But it was like slogging through mud to get it read.

Still… I’d recommend it if you don’t mind spending a bit of time with a book. And now I’m off to release it somewhere, as I promised to do when Bookcrosser Hanrahan-Siudy sent to to me.

Thin Air

Thin AirYou know, I’d hate to be an awesome car in Joanne Baldwin’s world. She kills cars. Well… no. She doesn’t kill cars. She loves her cars. But cars tend to get killed around her. Poor things.

Joanne lost her memories to a Demon (bad, bad Ashan!), and this is the story of how she kicks butt to get her life back.

And damn it, now I have to wait til August 2008 until the next book in the series, Gale Force, is published. Arrrrrgggghhhhh!

Chill Factor

Chill FactorOk! Got caught up on all the excitement in Las Vegas that is alluded to in Books 4 and 5. And in usual Caine fashion, we had a wide ride along the way!

I’ve got one more in the series to read… and it makes me wonder how many of these Ms. Caine is planning to write. Because I could keep reading them until she gets tired of writing them.

Step on a Crack

Step on a CrackHint: don’t read a tear-jerker while eating lunch at work. People might think you’re strange.

The basic mystery-solving part of the story is quite clever. While I didn’t know exactly who the “inside man” was, I knew where I ought to be looking for him. So when he was revealed at the end, I wasn’t terribly surprised. The gang of thugs, though? Clever! Very clever.

The human-interest part of the story, as I alluded to, is a tear-jerker. Oh, I didn’t really care much one way or the other about the hostages… but I got totally sucked into the main character and his family. I hope to see more books starring Mike Bennett.

And overall, a very good book that I highly recommend!

If You Can’t Say Anything Nice, Say It in Yiddish

If You Can't Say Anything Nice...Not nearly as much fun as Yiddish with Dick and Jane, but if you want a book of creative curses, this is definitely right up your alley!

Immortal in Death

Immortal in DeathNormally, I really dislike reading books out of sequence. But I guess since it’s been a couple of months since I read the last Eve Dallas story, backtracking to her wedding wasn’t as annoying as it usually would be.

While I like these stories, they all do seem to be an awful lot alike. Formulaic, even. Still, Robb’s writing is good enough that I can forgive her for that. (We all know J.D. Robb is really Nora Roberts, right?) Two more of her books will be on their way once I return these to Booksfree.
