The Cajun Doctor: A Cajun Novel (Cajun Books) - Sandra Hill

Actually one of the better of the series, which I freely admit is not a favorite.

 

Highlights - Tante Lulu's interference is minimized. Oh, it's there, but it's overshadowed by a bunch of other crap that force our prospective lovebirds to change their perspective.

 

Lowlights. Uh...there was a lot of crap that was just kinda rushed through all at once to set the stage for the H/h to actually decide they wanted to get together for real. The h's ex is taken care of permanently, the mob after her stepbrother gets taken down the same day, so there's no reason for her to stay at his place. Which means that she leaves unexpectedly and he has to come to grips with the realization that he wants her there permanently...and vice versa. Now, granted, I like that they got together on their own terms (none of that ridiculous public humiliation routine that usually characterizes books in this series), I just wish all the problems forcing them to cohabit hadn't been deux ex machina'd. I mean; I do read romantic suspense so a plot that somewhat reads like a comedy version of that genre should at least make an attempt to have a little drama beyond the whole "I need to hide" bit and the taking out of the ex (which was quite dramatic, to be sure).

 

There was also the lack of a real discussion about his not wanting to get involved, which was why she gave him the brush-off just prior to that dramatic bit. She never pointed out that he was the one who wanted a one night stand, you see. OTOH, I suppose their pseudo-discussion while she was in the harem costume (which was Tante Lulu's BTW) about him not doing one night stands was a bit of air clearing.

Strange storms Asgard
Doctor Strange (2015-) #383 - Donny Cates,Gabriel Walta,Mike Del Mundo

He brings along a god, as a distraction if needed.   His plan is to beg for some of their magic, but if he can't beg, or borrow, he'll just steal it.   

 

Things are going to get crazy when Asgard figures out what Strange has done - at least that's my bet.

Doctor Strange finds the motivation to fight back
Doctor Strange (2015-) #382 - Donny Cates,Mike Del Mundo,Gabriel Hernandez Walta

After all, the spell he put in Zelma could destroy her: if Loki finds out where the spell is, he could try to remove it, which would most likely tear her soul apart.   Loki also kills his talking dog, so there's that big thing. 

 

So he goes to the person he saved, that he promised he would never ask for help again - and hopes against hope that they'll take up Doctor Strange's cause as their own.

So much fun!
Doctor Strange (2015-) #381 - Donny Cates,Mike Del Mundo,Gabriel Hernandez Walta

Loki is the Sorcerer Supreme, Zelma is working for him, and Doctor Strange is a vet who speaks to animals - leading to the inevitable Dr. Dolittle joke. 

 

Just fun, mind bending, and I can't wait to see how this storyline plays out!

Way, way too short
Doctor Strange - Marvel Legacy Primer Pages (Doctor Strange (2015-)) - Robbie Thompson,Niko Henrichon

Skimmed so much history and didn't introduce Wong or Zelma for those jumping into the new stories. 

 

Not good at all.
