Dazzling
Dazzling: The Diamond Trilogy, Book I (BookShots Flames) - Elizabeth Hayley,James Patterson

Siobhan is an artist who takes a hostess job at an upscale bar. Derick is a billionaire (aren't they all?) who patronizes the bar. Siobhan literally falls down (seriously- she HAS to be clumsy) in front of him. But wait! He catches her and is instantly interested.
This was predictable and boring. Luckily, this was short, so I didn't waste a lot of time on it or money (Thanks to the library!). It's also part of a trilogy- cliffhanger ahead! No HFN (much less a HEA). And guess what? I really don't care and won't be reading further.

Kiss the Girls
Kiss the Girls - James Patterson

Like the first book in this series, Kiss the Girls is a fast-paced read that kept me from putting it down. It has some gruesome details of murders and rape and isn't a story for everyone. I liked the connection to the Underground Railroad which was ironic since I'm also reading The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. I liked the ending of this story too although, I won't go into that.

 

Alex Cross learned that his niece is missing. She was away at College in North Carolina and had been missing for 4 days before the police had contacted her family. The local police wouldn't give them any information so Alix decided to go in person. It was like stepping backward through time where a black man gets no respect.  Once he was there he found that there were several girls missing from Duke University and they were all beautiful, educated women. Alex starts his own investigation hoping to find his niece alive. The story gets intense very fast when they get a lead in LA and they find out they may be dealing with more than one serial killer.

 

Yup, I'll be reading more of this series.

"There's a magical line in The Pawnbroker, magical to me, anyway. 'Everything I loved was taken away from me, and I did not die.'"

Kiss the Girls
Kiss the Girls - James Patterson

So I'm already reading 3 other books but I randomly decided to read this one.  I couldn't sleep and reading didn't help.  I did learn something about the previous reader of this book though.  They must really like mustard because there are yellow fingerprints on several pages.  Thanks really.  

 

This book is pretty interesting so far and if I wasn't so tired I probably would have read the entire thing in one sitting.   

 

So how do people make a post that shows their reading progress?  I have seen several that show large letters at the top of the post that says where they are at in the book.  I thought when I updated and wrote a post that it would do it but it didn't.  That sucks.  I don't see magic buttons or switches etc. that look like they might be the ticket.  Someone tell me the magic words.

3rd Degree
3rd Degree - James Patterson,Andrew Gross

I like how there is never a dull moment in these novels, from the moment I start reading the first page there is something relevant to the case transpiring before me and I can’t wait to get back to the novel. I inhaled this novel in one afternoon and was deeply sadden when it ended because of how it ended and I will get to that in a bit. This novel is one in a series but I don’t feel that you need to read the previous books in this series to enjoy this novel but you should know that there is a group of professional women who gather together, organizing their resources to try to solve the crime that has been committed hence, The Women’s Murder Club.

 

After her morning run with her dog, Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer was headed to Starbucks, when the townhouse that she has always admired, explodes. As the scene is being examined, Lindsay notices a mysterious backpack outside the townhouse. What is inside the backpack, has the team discovering that this fire was a planned, targeted attack and not an accident. Inside the townhouse, they had found the bodies of a mother, a father and a housekeeper but they did not find the 6-month old baby that supposedly lived there. Where is this child and why were they targeted? Meanwhile, the bomber has watched his bomb go off with satisfaction and the au pair is in a hotel room changing her appearance, everything is going as planned. Fast forward to a new day, the scene is a penthouse suite. She promises him that the drugs she is about to give him, will make him ready for her. Little does he know what she has in store for him. It doesn’t take long before he is speechless, he is so stupid and gullible, it was almost too easy. She shoves a piece of paper in his mouth, the public will now know that the August Spies are in town. The August Spies cast demands upon the people and they better listen or there will be bodies, dead ones, every three days until their demands are met. The August Spies are not people to be messed with.

 

Detective Lindsay needs to call together her friends to discuss this latest case. Chief D. A. Jill, Medical Examiner Claire, and San Francisco Chronicle reporter Cindy gather together as Lindsay updates them and they discuss their next steps . It’s great to see each of these women bringing their expertise to the table, collaborating together to solve the case. As the August Spies keep true to their word, their victims get a bit too close for me and this novel ends on a sad note. What continues for these women will yet to be seen and I can’t wait to see what happens in book four.
