Top Secret Twenty-One by Janet Evanovich 4 Stars

Once again, Stephanie Plum is in the middle of mayhem, hijinx and dealing with a scary killer, or two. She’s embroiled in one case regarding the bonding agency, involving the annoying Randy Briggs (from previous books) and also helping Ranger find a man he used to know when he was in special ops, who happens …

Fear of Dying by Erica Jong 4 Stars

This is not my normal reading fare – but I was 3 years old when Fear of Flying came out. As I got older, I’d heard about it. It was on the must read list, mostly because it was so controversial (although not in this day and age). In my 30’s I decided to read …

Dying for a Living by Kory Shrum 5 stars

She is still Al’s (the demon) student; Pierce is still around, although this …

Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah

I absolutely loved this book. I had never heard of the author before and I happen to be looking for something else when I came across her and I’m so glad I did. This book spans the lifetime of two women from the time they were pre-teens to adults. There was so many memorable things …

Exit Strategy by Kelley Armstrong

I  love Kelley’s Women of the Otherworld series, and was reluctant to try a book that had nothing to do with Elena, Clay or any of the other characters I was used to reading about, but I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the new characters and could hardly put the book down. Nadia – the …
