January - February 2014 Books

It's hard to keep up with a blog when you're on Facebook and Twitter, but I'm going to try...

As an avid book reader, I'm a bit behind on my goal for the year.

Miracle Road - Emily March (Kindle)
A Change of Heart - Barbara Longley (Kindle)
Doctor Sleep - Stephen King (hardback)
Fearless Fourteen - Janet Evanovich (paperback)
A Cold Creek Christmas Surprise - RaeAnne Thayne (Kindle)
Finger Lickin' Fifteen - Janet Evanovich (paperback)
Seaview Inn - Sheryyl Woods (Kindle)

Home to Seaview Key - Sheryyl Woods (Kindle)
Sizzling Sixteen - Janet Evanovich (Kindle)
Fear Nothing - Lisa Gardner (Kindle)
Come Home to Me - Brenda Novak (Kindle-ARC)
Single by Saturday - Catherine Bybee (Kindle)
Smokin' Seventeen - Janet Evanovich (Kindle)
Perfect Together - Carly Phillips (Kindle)

Loved the Sheryyl Woods books, and Fear Nothing by Lisa Gardner was one of her best! Love Brenda Novak, and enjoyed reading the ARC of her new book. Evanovich books are getting a little stale, but they're still enjoyable.

January and February were cold, snowy months. The snow in the first part of February stuck around for a long time because we had bitter cold temperatures along with it. The city did a lousy job of clearing off streets, so it was treacherous driving for about a week!

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…

Blood on the Tracks

By Barbara Nickless
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Expected Publication Date: October 1, 2016
Genre: Mystery/suspense

From the back cover:
"A sadistic murder draws a war-haunted cop into the deadly world of a rail-riding gang."

My review:
Sydney Rose Parnell, a special agent for the railroad police, is suffering from PTSD after her time in the war. So when she is drawn into a murder mystery, the ghosts that haunt her appear more and more often. She is looking for the murderer of a young lady who helped the homeless. With the help of her K9 companion, Clyde, who is also a war veteran; she sets out to solve the crime. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way.

I loved Sydney's strength and determination, even though she had bouts of mental fragility from the war. Who wouldn't? I highly recommend this author's first book.
