Review: Cat Trick by Sofie Kelly
Cat Trick - Sofie Kelly

This book had the most boring murder mystery I have ever read. So boring the recurring characters either didn't notice there was a murder in their town or just didn't care. This was more "day in the life of Midwestern librarian Kathleen" than mystery. I am giving it one star for the cats, Owen and Hercules, who were the only living beings who cared enough to solve the mystery. At least it fills in a reading challenge prompt.

Wonderful read
Counterbalance - Kelly Moran

Great read. Xander and Peyton have known each other since high school, she was the cheer leader he was the geek. Now he is the CEO of a company that is now a millionaire. The chemistry is smoking between them can they make it work even though they work together and with Xander's social anxiety and Peyton's fears of being left. This book is a great read and you don't want to put it down. Kelly Moran has made you fall in love with a great couple and the other characters in this book and you are rooting for them.

Friday Reads!
Sleigh Bells in the Snow - Sarah Morgan
Cat Trick - Sofie Kelly
Rick Steves Travel as a Political Act - Rick Steves
The Idle Parent: Why Laid-Back Parents Raise Happier and Healthier Kids - Tom Hodgkinson

Happy St. Patrick's Day to the Irish and Irish diaspora around the world. I can claim Irish heritage via my great-grandmother and great-grandfather who came to the US from Cork.

 

My hubby came back from his TDY and surprised me with volumes 3 and 4 of Saga; he found them at the BX at the base he was TDY and remembered I had picked up one and two. He also bought a crap ton of Italian wine.

 

Tonight and tomorrow is my farewell trip to London with two friends, one of which is leaving to move back to the US. We are staying at a Harry Potter themed B+B, going to see the new Beauty and the Beast movie, do a Harry Potter themed walking tour on Saturday, followed by a little lunch and a little shopping.

 

Here is what I am reading this weekend and into next week:

1. Finish Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan (print copy from personal shelves)

    I am only continuing with this book because it fits a Pop Sugar prompt. I am definitely not feeling Morgan's writing or the category-length story stretched out to a full book length plot line.

 

2. Cat Trick by Sofie Kelly (Kindle book via OverDrive)

     Another Pop Sugar prompt filler. A quick cozy mystery from an author I read before (another book in the series for Halloween bingo last autumn).

 

3. Travel as a Political Act by Rick Steves (Kindle book via OverDrive)

    Yet another Pop Sugar prompt filler, but I have had this one on my OverDrive wish list for a long time. I admit that if Steves or Samantha Brown had not written this book, I probably wouldn't have given it a second look; but because I like Steves' work on TV, I am looking forward to how he might incorporate politics (international and/or domestic) into the arena of travel.

 

4. The Idle Parent by Tom Hodgkinson (Kindle book via OverDrive)

    One last Pop Sugar prompt filler. My Kindle is going to get quite the work out this week.

 

Also, I have at least three reviews to write, but just not feeling the writing vibes as much as the reading vibes.

Surprises
Body Shot: A Last Shot Novel - Kelly Jamieson

Hayden and her best friend check out a new place and learn about tequila and men.  Many surprises for the reader in this series opener.  Interesting characters and fun times are had inside.

 

Beck is a former SEAL, who opens a restaurant/bar with his best friends.  Hayden turns his life upside down, and he finds that was the best part of all.  If they can agree it is love, the future looks bright.

 

I really enjoyed this book.  There was a lot to learn.  I laughed, cried, and basically felt every page.  I cannot wait to check out the next book in this Last Shot series.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Love, love, love!
Hawkeye (2016-) #1 - Kelly Thompson,Leonardo Romero,Julian Tedesco

Kate Bishop, aka Hawkeye, wants to start up her own PI business.   She doesn't have the license yet, but she was once an Avenger.   Her sign might be a HAWK and a hand drawn eye under it - which makes people either looking for the "real" - read male - Hawkeye or an optometrist.   

 

She isn't going to let that stop her, either, so when someone with an actual case comes looking for her, well, Kate eagerly takes on the case.   A college student is being stalked, and her harasser's messages are getting more and more threatening.   She also suspects this big jerk-bag might know her, which is freaking her out, too.   

 

This is far more adorable than what I'd expected.  That being said, I also got this through Marvel Insider: it's a system in which you get points for things you do.   You can redeem these points for something like codes to digital comics, or subscriptions to MU+.  (The points do expire, after a year, I believe.   You need 750,000 points for the MU+, and you get 50 points for visiting Marvel, and 250-500 points for most everything else.  I gave up on the MU+, and will keep paying for it, if I decide to do that much longer.  I may not have the time soon...)

 

This was 20,000 points, and well worth it.   My points were going to start expiring soon, anyway, and I like having this in my library instead of something I don't own since I'm getting it for free anyway!
