okay, things are a little up in the air in terms of what I'm gonna read next, and how much of it--but I'm mainly referring to my ever-changing plans for the rest of the Machen collection; I was going to do all the short stories--well, novellas--left in it, but now I think I won't. Machen is better for me in small doses...even when they're suddenly big small doses. so I'll do one Machen story tomorrow morning, and then, because Justice League is around the corner, that's got me hungry for something even remotely related...and Batman is not exactly "remotely related'. though if I had planned this properly, I'd have a Justice League graphic novel handy. anyway, there's a small chance I'll flip again, tomorrow, and do all the Machen before moving on to anything else, but it's doubtful--partly because I'm anxious to see the revamp of an old favorite of mine: Anarky! bring him on.
This is my book for Calan Gaeaf
This is a Romantic Suspense Novel and that is really important to keep in mind in case you listen to the audiobook like I did. I would have thought it was a book about the Holocaust with all the times it said ¨Genocide¨. Turns out they meant ¨Jenna sighed.¨ And, Jenna sighed a lot...
I´m not much into romance but these books by Karen Rose are pretty dang good. Talk about hot for teacher! The suspense is really well done and the romance is.... well, it´s not the corny kind. Some people may want to keep a towel or tissues handy. It is definitely a book to keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end.
This is the second book in Karen Rose´s Romantic Suspense series and continues to follow Steven Thatcher, a detective with the SBI (State Bureau of Investigation in Raleigh, NC). In this story, Steven is investigating the disappearance of a young girl who is later found murdered. Then, it happens again and again and then they knew they were dealing with a serial killer who was targeting cheerleaders from local area schools. While Steven is already under enough pressure to find the killer and the 16 year old girl who is currently missing but hopefully still alive, Steven is also dealing with family trouble. His oldest son has been acting out lately and is flunking chemistry. Steven has to make time in the middle of this murder investigation to meet with his son´s teacher. He doesn´t just meet her though, he literally takes her down when they collide in the school lobby. Sparks fly immediately but he tries to keep himself under control because he can´t risk his kids getting attached to someone who might leave them like his wife did.
