Top Secret Twenty-One: A Stephanie Plum Novel by Janet Evanovich
I've been a fan of Stephanie Plum since I came across her debut in her first book One for the Money. I enjoyed most of her adventures and have spent countless hours laughing along as Stephanie and her sidekick Lula try to put felons back in jail after they skipped bond. The series started strong and kept me entertained through the many books that followed the debut novel. By the time I reached book number 17-18th, I was worried that the series and its author were starting to run out of gas. Too much time was spent on Stephanie's love dilemma (Joe Morelli or Ranger). Well, I'm delighted that the author seem to have shaken things up and rekindled the flame that made the Stephanie Plum… Read more
It's Not You, It's Me by Helen Dunne
It's Not You, It's Me by Helen Dunne
It's my first book by this author. It was kind of cute and there are several amusing situations as we follow this 32-ish years old British woman and her attempts to find lasting love. Holly is a corporate investigator who is much better at helping companies screen out executive candidates as she is at sorting out her own personal life. She's a mess and surprisingly naive. Her quirky friends are actually more interesting than Holly. I find young women to be so boring nowadays with their self-centred obsessions. Too much of the book is wasted on immature thoughts about her potential suitors -- girls, grow up already.... I give it 3 out of 5 stars (good).
A Wanted Man (with bonus short story Deep Down): A&hellip by Lee Child
4.0 out of 5 stars Good suspense...., July 17 2014
Up to now, I had only read two of Child's books: Killing Floor (his first novel, excellent), Nothing to Loose (a little bit boring). I've also seen the movie with Tom Cruise (OK) which was based on Child's novel entitled First Shot (which I haven't read but would bet that it was a really good book). So, I was a little worried that this Jack Reacher book may not be as good as I expected. Well, I was pleasantly surprised! I enjoyed a Wanted Man very much. I was pleased to see that Reacher continues to be consistently mysterious and grumpy; a sarcastic hero with blunt common sense. The intrigue and escalating tension kept me entertained until the very end. And, I liked there were very… Read more
