Goddess of Love (and vanity....and no modesty)
Goddess of Love - P.C. Cast

Okay, this series is my guilty pleasure but this one fell so flat I wanted to barf.

 

The main character is called Pea. Seriously. She's a grown woman of 30, and she is called Pea. She has curly hair and doesn't have enough brains to know not to brush her hair. That's curly hair 101. She brushes it constantly and wonders why it's a frizzy nest. She also thought she could learn style and confidence from a book. 

 

Venus is supposed to help her, but all she seems to know about is shallow fixes. Shoes, clothes, hair. There was no depth to this "Goddess". She is also prone to asking strangers if they pleasure themselves frequently. 

 

This was a teen movie (girl doesn't know how beautiful she is) with a lot of dicks thrown in. I'm so disappointed. The only character I liked was Vulcan....until he spied on Pea pleasuring herself and decided to get off himself. It was all way too creepy.

Goddess of Love - P.C. Cast

Okay, the stupidity in this book are driving me insane. I love the Goddess books, but this one isn't doing it for me.

All the bants
The Secrets of Gaslight Lane - M.R.C. Kasasian

Thanks to my friends (Katie, I'm talking to you!) over at Pegasus Books, I was able to get my hands on the latest installment to The Gower Street Detective series before publication (April 11th aka my birthday). Sidney Grice and his plucky assistant, March Middleton, are at it again in The Secrets of Gaslight Lane where they are tasked with solving not one but two locked room murders perpetrated in the same house several years apart. I have to caution yet again that this is not a series for anyone with a weak stomach or an aversion to overuse of adjectives and adverbs. (I think M.R.C. Kasasian possesses the most extensive vocabulary of any author I have ever read.) For those hoping for further resolution to the dramas surrounding Grice's past with March's mother and/or March's relationshiop with Inspector Pound then you're going to be fairly disappointed with this book. This is a case-heavy narrative with complicated facets and multiple characters. It's also chock full of hilarity and acerbic wit. Grice and March are definitely getting in the groove of their partnership and their back-and-forth banter (especially with clients) is delicious. This is a series I could see being re-tooled on Masterpiece Mystery and if cast correctly it would be fantastic. And as with his previous books in this series, Kasasian manages to drop a bombshell at the end which will leave readers salivating for more. 10/10 and I can't wait for Dark Dawn Over Steep House which will hopefully be out at the end of the year.

Murder At the Barbeue, Liz Turner
COZY MYSTERY: Murder At The Barbecue: A Rare Catch Cozy Mystery (Book 2) - Liz Turner

This was an enjoyable cozy mystery, in a no frills sort of way. I received this book for free and I voluntarily chose to review it. I gave it a 4 * rating.I like the heroine, who seems to like to solve mysteries but slow on the uptake in the romance department. She also has a puppy who seems to be in the middle of the investigations. This was pretty lighthearted as far as murder mysteries goes.
