Last Night with the Earl - Kelly Bowen

I really liked the second book in this series.  The characters were well developed and entertaining. The plot was lively and flowed really well.  I was never bored.  The conflict was easily relatable and not far-fetched so that I was pulled along for the ride right alongside the two main characters.  Their story was vibrant, passionate, sad and hopeful, sweet and intense, and just plain wonderful.  The first one was good, but this one was awesome.  If you haven’t read book one, you can actually pick up this one and read without too much trouble.  It deals with the same family and where the first one ends, but the two characters and their story stand on their own and is a great stand alone as well as part of a series.

Hunter's Green - Phyllis A. Whitney for Country House Mystery
Hunter's Green - Phyllis A. Whitney

Would also work for Genre: Suspense, Terrifying Women, Murder Most Foul, Amateur Sleuth, and Romantic Suspense.

 

It's fun reading these old thrillers that are so slow, with hardly any murder, no kids or really old people, and servents neither seen nor heard. They're charmingly predictable. And although this was published in 68 and makes much of the brash young mods, they feel So Old Fashioned. There are phones, but only to ring up the doctor or the police to haul away the perpetrator. There are cars for running up to Town, and low speed pursuit, and explosive crashes. What I love most is that everyone stops at regular intervals to sit down and eat a hot meal. I suppose this is what people are talking about when they reminisce about a slower time. 

 

I did have one great disappointment though: a device was quite deliberately introduced in the first act, but played no subsequent part in the plot. It wasn't even a red herring: it was just never mentioned again.

 

The only disturbing part of the story isn't meant to be:

 

My apologies for my failed spoiler tag.

Christmas on Mistletoe Lane (Sweetwater Springs #1) by Annie Rains
Christmas on Mistletoe Lane - Annie Rains

 

 

Rains was blessed with an empathetic voice that shines through each character she writes. Christmas on Mistletoe Lane is the latest example of that gift. Kaitlyn and Mitch tackle heartache with an appealing dose of reality and an abundance of heart. That's what makes this journey of false starts and new beginnings relatable. Mistletoe Lane is about rebuilding trust in the people around you and the person we're all meant to become. It's a celebration of the lessons that help a person grow.

Borrower of the Night
Borrower of the Night - Elizabeth Peters

Dr. Vicky Bliss is a strong, intelligent woman, who learned very young that because she was smarter than the boys in her class they felt threatened by her. When she blossomed into womanhood, it just got worse for her. "She collected degrees like other women collected engagement rings." was the quote that I remembered the best. When she is hired to be a teacher at an exclusive school in the mid-west, she meets Tony, another teacher who is not threatened by her looks or intelligence. He proposes to her frequently. It is then that he feels that the only way she will accept him is if he is able to "control" her. One night, while waiting for him to finish his work, she starts reading a book in the pile of books and her imagination is started and they individually plan a trip to Germany to find the missing piece of art. 

 

The book was interesting and fun to listen to (in the car while driving) and fun to read when I was at home. It provided some history and other information and showed the relationship between Vicky and Tony and the changes it makes throughout the trip.
