Fast Women: A Novel
Fast Women: A Novel
by Jennifer Crusie
Edition: Hardcover
33 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Good read, Jan. 25 2002
Ce commentaire est de: Fast Women: A Novel (Hardcover)
I found FAST WOMEN edgier than Crusie's previous books, but no less entertaining. It begins slowly with Nell trying to recover from a divorce she can't explain by drifting her way through life. With the help of friends she lands at a small detective agency and meets Gabe. Nell thinks she can 'manage' Gabe, but meets her match. The secondary characters are just as interesting as Nell and Gabe. And of course there's a dog for added enjoyment. Crusie is an intelligent, entertaining author.

Wrapt In Crystal
Wrapt In Crystal

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, Jan. 25 2002
After reading ARCHANGEL, JOVAH'S ANGEL and THE ALLELUIA FILES I was very disappointed with WRAPT IN CRYSTAL. I found it predictable and the physical relationship gratuitous. This is not a Shinn book I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars A magical tale., Jan. 20 2002
I am not a reader who reads all of Nora Roberts books, but the Three Sisters Island trilogy has caught me in its magic. HEAVEN AND EARTH is the second in the Three Sisters Island trilogy and lives up to the expectations set by the first book. Ripley Todd is a sheriffï¿s deputy. Sheï¿s smart, sexy and pulls no punches. The only thorn in her side is that sheï¿d like to deny her magical talents. Dr. MacAllister Brooke, with his degree in ï¿the study of crapolaï¿, arrives and wants only to help Ripley come to terms with her talents and a future with him. But before they can pursue the future they have to deal with the past.

Another great Krentz book. Jayne's mystery writing improves with each book. Thomas and Lenora remind me of Hepburn and Tracy characters from their old movies. The give and take of the dialogue is very enjoyable. Jayne does an excellent job of filling out all the characters. You know just how Alex Rhodes, Roberta Brinks, Deke Walker, Grandma Gloria and all the others look, talk and think. Have a good read.:-)

Welcome to Temptation
Welcome to Temptation

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Crusie book, Dec 7 2001
Jennifer Crusie has a wonderful way with characters and dialogue. Sophie, Phin, Helen, Amy and the rest of the cast are hard to leave behind. The relationship that builds between Sophie and Phin is a pleasure to watch. You know exactly what the future holds when the story ends.

Ms. Roberts does a great job providing detail of her characters. The idea for the story is good. The read is wonderful up to the end when the book suddently stops. It's like someone said okay you have to stop NOW. I truly liked Declan and Lena and would have liked to see the real end to the story.

Another Crusie great. Who would have thought adopting one poor, little, skinny dog would change Quinn's life? What a change it is. She goes from dating the "world's nicest guy" to dating her sister's ex husband. This book will have you laughing out loud. It is fun and witty.

Welcome to Temptation

5.0 out of 5 stars How about 10 stars :-), Oct. 14 2001
Ce commentaire est de: Welcome to Temptation (Hardcover)
Cruise is great. Her stories are like listening to a friend at lunch. WELCOME TO TEMPTATION is one of her best. Temptation gets a wake up call when Sophie, Amy, and Davy Dempsey hit town. Phin, the mayor, knows he's in trouble when he meets Sophie, but he still goes down without a fight. From porn movies and local theater to water towers and pillars of society this is a great read. I haven't met a Crusie book I didn't like yet.

The Quantum Rose (The Saga of the Skolian Empire)
The Quantum Rose (The Saga of the Skolian Empire)
by Catherine Asaro
Edition: Hardcover
18 used & new from CDN$ 2.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Not up to Ms. Asaro's usual standards., July 21 2001
I was somewhat disappointed in Ms. Asaro's "The Quantum Rose". I can't quite put my finger on it, but the story never really captured my attention as her previous novels have. I understood why, but I got very tired of the submissiveness of the heroine.

SOUL COLLECTOR Old Title(A Locketful Of Paradise)

Edition: Mass Market Paperback
18 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Kathleen Kane at her best!, July 21 2001
Let me say right up front that this is defintely a case of the book SOUL COLLECTOR being better than the movie. The SOUL COLLECTOR, originally titled A POCKETFUL OF PARADISE is a touching, sweet story of one of God's servants, Zacariah, sent to Earth to live as a human for one month as punishment for his wayward ways. What Zacariah learns is love.
