Crazy Rich Asians
Crazy Rich Asians - Kevin Kwan

Pop Sugar 2019 Challenge prompts:

Book about a family

Book by an author from Asia 

Book by an author whose first and last name begin with the same letter

Book involving a wedding

 

I had high hopes for this book, but I just couldn't get into it. There were far too many names and titles thrown at me with every turn. I can't keep the people straight. And if I can't keep them straight, it's not possible to connect and feel anything for them.

Crazy Rich Asians - Kevin Kwan

I'm sad to say I'm having a hard time getting into this. There are so many characters to keep straight that I haven't connected with any yet.

Kathleen Hale Is a Crazy Stalker - Kathleen Hale

I don't have the words.

 

Author related to a big five publisher now publishing the tale of successfully stalking a goodreads reviewer.  Well defended by the publisher in previous instances and previous bland, badly written tomes I disliked even before all the drama.  No way I'd feel any different about this one and no way do I want to add to her profit.  $23 for hardcover sounds like trying to grab the money quickly in case any legal troubles or blowback happen.

 

If unfamiliar with the criminal history -- 

 

Yes, I know. Possible Streisand effect and increased visibility by posting about this.  But, past experience says KH will blow up around the blogosphere anyway.  She's big on friction marketing plus usually has an extraordinary amount of marketing from the publisher..

Crazy Fox Ranch (Paige MacKenzie mystery) by Deborah Garner
Crazy Fox Ranch - Deborah Garner

I have read Deborah’s Moonglow Novellas but this is my first time reading a full Paige MacKenzie mystery, and you do not need to have read any of the previous books in order to read this as it works well as a stand alone.

 

Paige has left Manhattan and moved to Jackson Hole to be closer to her cowboy boyfriend Jake Norris. In the previous books their love has blossomed and she has made the decision to move closer to him and start a fresh but still do her journalism which she will freelance stories from Jackson Hole back to her old newspaper. As she starts to delve into the Hollywood connection that Jackson Hole has with old Western movies, Paige discovers much more than just a movie. When strange things start to happen at Jake’s ranch and a persistent gentleman named Percy who is very keen to buy the property despite it not being for sale, Paige gets her investigation hat on and uncovers a bigger mystery going on with regards to the ranch and Jackson Hole in a whole.

 

Paige discovers a series of hole on the property which Jake puts down to being a fox digging, but she discovers more dug up holes when she visits parts of Jackson Hole that were used in the movie Shane. She discovers some metallic items near some holes, surely its not the same fox digging all over the place? and if not a fox who is doing all the digging and for what reasons? 

 

This was a good little mystery and I really enjoyed my first foray with Paige and cant wait to go back and read the previous book (i am desperate to get her connection to Mist from the Moonglow Cafe novellas)
