REVIEW BY AMY - Bahama Mama (Key West Escape #2) by Tricia Leedom
Bahama Mama (Key West Escape, #2) - Tricia Leedom

Troubles are piling up for Molly MacBain. Between navigating the moods of an increasingly sassy teenage daughter, battling mounting financial difficulties, and wading through a mess of custody issues, Molly certainly doesn't need any more stress in her life. But when she learns that her best friend, Sophie, has been keeping a huge secret from her, she's beyond bowled over. Apparently, Sophie's soon-to-be brother-in-law is Molly’s idol, country music superstar Anders Ostergaard and after years on the country music circuit herself, Molly finds herself somewhere between smitten and awe-struck.

Anders flies to Key West to attend his brother’s wedding and keep a low profile after a wicked scandal continues to follow him around like a lurking shadow. Usually, he has a strict rule about getting involved with fans, especially fiery, red-headed hot mamas like Molly MacBain, but her sharp wit and refreshing openness draws him in like no one has before.

But romance and flirting come to a screeching halt, when Molly’s daughter witnesses a murder and winds up in Jamaica. Anders offers Molly the use of his private plane to bring her home and together, they set off for Montego Bay. Between racing against her ex’s impending involvement and the hitman hunting for the witnesses to his crime, both Molly and Anders are completely unaware they’re being stalked by an even greater danger.

In the sultry Caribbean, Anders and Molly discover when a man who’s sworn off love and a woman who guards her heart can’t keep their hands off of each other, something’s gotta give. If their luck doesn’t run out first.

The Book of Dust ★★★★☆
The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage (Book of Dust, Volume 1) - Philip Pullman

Absolutely worth putting all my other books on "pause" for. This was as much fun as The Golden Compass, and without all the complicated nature-of-the-universe plot machinations of the other books in that trilogy. There is plenty of action and peril to propel the story along, and the two new main characters are easy to invest in. Baby Lyra isn't given much to do, other than to just be a baby, but it was interesting to see how the author portrays the relationship of human to daemon in infancy. 

 

I think this probably works as a stand-alone, but it's hard to know how much of my familiarity with the characters of Lyra's parents and the world they occupy informed my understanding of this book's events. Interestingly, this book seems to incorporate a little more fantasy into its steampunkiness than I remember from the first book. 

 

Audiobook, borrowed from my public library after a six month wait on hold. Michael Sheen's performance is fantastic.

The Book of Dust - 46%
The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage (Book of Dust, Volume 1) - Philip Pullman

Well. I was a sort of unwilling reader to start, but now I've been thoroughly sucked in.

The Book of Dust - getting started
The Book of Dust: La Belle Sauvage (Book of Dust, Volume 1) - Philip Pullman

I wasn't planning to read this book now. I'm not prepared to read this book now, and I don't really even want to read this book now. But my turn has suddenly come up after having it on hold at the library for more than six months, so I guess I better read it now rather than going to the back of the line again. 

 

That means putting Mr. Mercedes on pause, which I'm reading while I've got The Outsider on pause. I hope nothing else comes up, because I'm going to start losing track of everything.

 

Also, I hope this one works as a sort of stand-alone, because I only vaguely remember His Dark Materials, and I don't have time to put this one on pause while I go back and re-read that trilogy!.
