Moyes has mastered the art of likable, not terribly memorable, but far from simple-minded storytelling.
Owen’s sentence-by-sentence prose is extraordinarily polished—a noteworthy feat for a 500-page debut—and she packs many surprises into her tale, making it a book for readers to lose themselves in.
A multifaceted cast of characters, a plot twist involving the legendary Romanovs, and plenty of sensual romance will keep readers riveted.
Val McDermid is a good crime writer, too good indeed to disguise her feelings about a commission that inspires, at least in this reader, a weary "so what?" Perhaps the best we can hope for is that it will send McDermid's many fans back to the source – the book first published posthumously in 1818 as Northanger Abbey.
Foster skillfully balances steamy seduction and police work as Margo and Dash learn to be a team in and out of the bedroom.
Overall, it was a typical Ward book. I really didn’t like parts of it but the page time for Wrath and Beth made up for it. I am not sure where I stand with the series though.
Higgins’ talent shines, as does her inimitable ability to hit romantic highs, make readers laugh and express heart-wrenching emotion.
A thought-provoking look at women of a certain age and the choices they make when they realize their lives aren’t exactly what they expected—or thought they were.
Despite the many characters and subplots, this is easily read as a standalone, though taking in the entire series will only add to the pleasure.
While chaotic at times, this delightfully zany novel is anything but disappointing, and Laurenston’s fans will gobble it up like Livy with a jar of cinnamon honey.
The story is sizzling sexy! Darkly, passionate…and just darn so much more that I could imagine when I finished Bound. The story comes full circle and trust is grown from where it was torn. A must read!
As Thorn and India hesitantly reveal their secrets to each other, they wonder whether they can accept the risks of love. James’s wonderful cast and effortless plotting make this a delicious romance to be savored again and again.
...the feelings Colleen describes for when he is with both Sydney and Maggie are amazing...I just loved everything about this book! The characters, the flaws, the story line...EVERYTHING!
This was a fun read to get lost into for the weekend, and it would be a good one to pack along on vacation or traveling for business.
Laine loves to make soup on rainy days. (We’re told this a few too many times). Carr writes the equivalent of Laine’s soup - cozy, rainy-day books that make you feel a little bit warmer and a little bit better about the world. This isn’t a perfect version of Carr’s recipe, but it’s definitely an acceptable variation.
I absolutely adored Take a Chance and I'm sure that you will too, especially if you're a long time Abbi Glines fan and if you happen to be a new one, welcome, young Padawan. Take a Chance is Abbi Glines at her best...
Less funny than Evanovich’s knockabout Stephanie Plum adventures but less mannered and annoying too: a comfy seriocomic caper just right for beach reading while you wait for the inevitable summer movie.
The road to what has led Leonius to become a monster is uncovered but that wasn’t enough for me. Instead of getting closer I finished the book frustrated...I didn’t find any of the fun banter or crazy antics that made me fall in love with the series and the chemistry that holds it all together was missing.
Fans of smalltown contemporaries will savor this delicious and heartwarming story, a refreshingly realistic romance between two great characters.
All superb storytelling aspects combine to make Concealed in Death another intellectually engaging and emotionally satisfying novel. Loyal readers will finish Concealed in Death eager for volume 39.
