Friday Reads - Summer Holiday Weekend Part I
After the Storm: A Kate Burkholder Novel - Linda Castillo
Her Last Breath - Linda Castillo
Among the Wicked: A Kate Burkholder Novel - Linda Castillo
Death by Tiara (A Jaine Austen Mystery) - Laura Levine
Egg Drop Dead - Laura Childs
Purl Up and Die (A Knitting Mystery) - Maggie Sefton
Nothing but Trouble - Susan May Warren
Diary of an Accidental Wallflower - Jennifer McQuiston

I feel like it has been a long time since I did a Friday Reads post. I hope all my fellow US'ians have a safe holiday weekend. I hope my British neighbors have a safe bank holiday weekend. We got caught in a heat wave (in the 80s come afternoon time) so I broke out the kiddie pool; forecast states we have one more beautiful summer day, then the rain and lower temps are coming by the end of the weekend. I am spending most of my weekend with books and a long walk in the Thetford Forest with the family before the rain comes.

 

Here is what I hope to read over the weekend/the final week in May.

 

1. After the Storm by Linda Castillo

2. Her Last Breath by Linda Castillo 

3. Among the Wicked by Linda Castillo

      I picked these three books from the library. They're from the Kate Burkholder series (Amish police procedurals). I've wanted to try this series for a while now. These books are from later in the series.

 

4. Death by Tiara by Laura Levine

5. Egg Drop Dead by Laura Childs

6. Purl Up and Die by Maggie Sefton

        Another bunch from the library, this time in really cute cozy mystery flavor. The first is from the Jaine Austen series, and the name of the series was enough for me to take it off the shelf. I tried one book from Laura Childs before (from that tea shop mystery series) and DNF'ed it, so I don't have much expectation for this one (from the Cackleberry Club series). The last one's titled just made me laugh.

 

7. Nothing But Trouble by Susan May Warren

           Borrowed this one from OverDrive because I kept getting recommended it (OD has the first three books in the series). I'm at the 62% mark and really liking it; PJ is not one of those perfect model of a Christian, but she is a Christian with good intentions and a good heart. The writing is different from a lot of Christian fiction without being profane. I am looking forward to book two and three.

 

8. Diary of an Accidental Wallflower by Jennifer McQuinston

          My BL-opoly pick which makes it a priority. New to me author, but I loved the interviews she did for the Smart Podcast, Trashy Books podcast - she talked about her work at the CDC in general and her work in Africa dealing with Ebola outbreak specifically....along with her weekend job writing historical romances.

Amish Refuge by Debby Giusti
Amish Refuge (Amish Protectors) - Debby Giusti

This was a great story. It is a quick read.full of action. At times Miriam being jealous of a dead woman tended to get a bit repetitive but did not hurt the story, seemed like it was a bit of filler, which was really not needed in the story. Also I would of liked a better ending, where we go to trial and whether or not the sister was found. 

 

The main characters are Miriam Miller. Her mother sister and herself are headed to Georgia from Tennessee to find her mother's sister. A woman Miriam never knew existed until recently when her mother begged to find her. Her mother is suffering from dementia. On the they are pulled over by the Police. The Police end up killing the mother and kidnapping Miriam and her sister. They are held and drugged in a cabin in the woods. Miriam ends up escaping after her sister is taken away. As she is running away she is followed by the officer with a Snake tattoo on his neck. She ends up wrecking her car and escapes on foot. She sees a light in a window of a cabin and runs to it. This is when she meets the leading Man Abram and his sister Emma. The take her into their home and try to protect her. Abram has lost his wife and child during childbirth 3 years before but has not gotten past his grief. Abram is Amish and Miriam really does not have a religion. They grow to care for each other. Can Miriam survive the snake man and can she and Abram get beyond their pasts and religious differences?

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
