Reconstructing Jackson By Holly Bush 99 cents!
Reconstructing Jackson Paperback June 25, 2014 - Holly Bush

1867 . . . Southern lawyer and Civil War veteran, Reed Jackson, returns to his family’s plantation in a wheelchair. His father deems him unfit, and deeds the Jackson holdings, including his intended bride, to a younger brother. Angry and bitter, Reed moves west to Fenton, Missouri, home to a cousin with a successful business, intending to start over.

Belle Richards, a dirt poor farm girl aching to learn how to read, cleans, cooks and holds together her family’s meager property. A violent brother and a drunken father plot to marry her off, and gain a new horse in the bargain. But Belle’s got other plans, and risks her life to reach them.

Reed is captivated by Belle from their first meeting, but wheelchair bound, is unable to protect her from violence. Bleak times will challenge Reed and Belle's courage and dreams as they forge a new beginning from the ashes of war and ignorance.

Losing It
Losing It - Cora Carmack
The Characters

I love Bliss Edwards. She is so much like me, despite our ten year age difference.

Garrick Taylor is a wonderful, loveable guy.

Beyond Bliss and Garrick we have a large cast of characters and she did a great job of not overwhelming the reader with them.

The Story

A very sweet and entertaining story. I like Ms Carmack’s style. It’s humorous, which I love. The characters are so enjoyable and I really felt a connection with them.

The Random Thoughts

The only thing I didn’t care for it is the narrator. Not that she didn’t do an excellent job bringing the characters to life but her voice was a bit “young” for the character. Bliss sounded like a 16 year old ready to get her license not a twenty two year old living college life.

Posession
Possession - J.R. Ward
The Characters

So the cast is pretty full this time around. We have our old usuals Jim, Adrian, Eddie (kinda) and lets not forget Davina. But we are also finally introduced to and get a chance to know Sissy. (view spoiler)

Also we have our soul and the soul's supporting cast, Duke Phillips, Cait Douglass (haven’t we seen this last name before in a Ward book?) and G.B. (Gordon Benjamin).

The Story

A lot of buildup to this story. A lot, a lot. And though I was semi-surprised with the ending I wasn’t wowed. In fact part of the ending, the attack on Cait, was actually quite predictable.

I like that the war is moving along. I more or less enjoyed the guessing game about who the soul is. I like that I was wrong about it.

The Random Thoughts

Not my favorite of the series but I’m glad I experienced it.

Read With Me: Possession
