An unfinished death Laura dewey (KLB) novella . mystery . female police dectective on a bender has a mystical dream that leads her to solve a murder that no one thought was a murder. Interesting, but harsh
Freaking Wicked 1 Brian Poor (KF)vampire, werwolf, super soldier ( aka frankenstien like being) , super geek – all part of a super sercret CIA group . boring until the plot kicked in – which invovled rescuing a saudi arbian prince, pirates, a rival CIA group and … dinosaurs. Ridiculous.
Carrots Colleen Helme (K) mystery . A woman at the grocery store get shot durring a bank robbery at the stor e bank. Just a graze, but now – she can read minds. As she is trying t figure out what to d , who t tell and how to deal with this she gets invovled with the local crime boss…Not ridiculous , even though it sounds that way on papper. the main character is likable, not helpless and her family isn’t portrayed as anythign other than a family. I have no idea why the novel is called carrots.
The Squad perfect cover Jennifer Lynn Barnes (LB)ya fun review here
Going Organic can kill you Staci Mclaughlin (KLB) mystery in a small town on a new farm/spa. it was fun , but I was more interested in why the author talked so much about organic /whole/vegatarian foods – yet had most of the characters going ‘ick’ and reaching for the chicken nuggets. And the title didn’t fit with the mystery.
so that means 19 for august, 104 for the year.
