Not Very Suspenseful
The Child Finder - Rene Denfeld

3 Audiobook great narration 
I liked it, not loved it. It might be just a first book in a series, need to get to know the characters better thing. It was a suspense but I never felt that edge if my seat, omg you've got to hurry thing. I like a more adrenaline rushed suspense. I may give it another chance someday.

FaceOff - M.J. Rose,Ian Rankin,Heather Graham,Lee Child,David Baldacci,David Baldacci,Linwood Barclay,Joseph Finder,Peter James,T. Jefferson Parker,Linda Fairstein,Raymond Khoury,Lisa Gardner,James Rollins,Douglas Preston,Michael Connelly,F. Paul Wilson,R.L. Stine,

well..that's interesting. Granted, I'm not actually familiar with most of the authors...or characters. Not really the genre I follow.

 

I do kinda wish similar existed in romance if only to see how other authors do characters.

Gideon's Sword by Preston & Child - My Thoughts
Gideon's Sword - Douglas Preston,Lincoln Child

When I finish a book that totally blows me away, I have to either change genres completely or go to reread a very old fave.  This time, I chose to change genres and try a new - to me - series.  And it did the trick!

This was an enjoyable read.  Sort of like the Ilona Andrews book, it  felt like some good junk food to my reading brain.  The story clipped along at a decent pace - the chapters weren't very long which helps a lot, keeps things from dragging.  The plot was intricate enough to keep me interested yet not so complicated that I was stopping to try and figure out things. 

The main character, Gideon Crew, is an interesting fellow.  Clever and smart, he reads people really well.  He has a great sense of humour.  And he has a sense of purpose and is just dark and cynical enough to appeal to me.  I liked following along with him on his 'mission'. 

There is a small cast of supporting characters that have the potential to increase their interestingness over the coming books. Apparently one of the guys comes one of the writing duo's other series, but I'm not ready to go hunt that down yet.  :)

So, I've found another series to follow when I need some tasty junk-food reading and that's a good thing!

The Wrong Child - Patricia Kay
THE WRONG CHILD by Patricia Kay I
n the midst of a blizzard, in an understaffed hospital and when the only labor and delivery nurse has a heart attack and dies, two infants are switched. Years later the awful truth comes out.
This tale tells what happens next. Several startling instances of happenstance and the plot thickens. The story is interesting. The characters have life to them. The plot is a tearjerker – but then you knew that, right?
There is no foul language. There is one sex scene. Altogether, not a bad way to spend a lazy afternoon or two.
3 of 5 stars

The Wild Child (The Bride Trilogy Book 1) Mary Jo Putney Free!
The Wild Child - Mary Jo Putney

A mad heiress and a false fiancé...

The younger son of an earl, Dominic Renbourne is offered an irresistible bribe by his arrogant, identical twin brother, Kyle, who is heir to the earldom. All he must do is take Kyle's place at Warfield Manor, where he is to politely court Lady Meriel Grahame, the orphaned and vastly wealthy heiress Kyle is pledged to marry. The deception need only take a few weeks and no one will be the wiser because the fey Lady Meriel lives in a world of her own. The last thing Dominic expects when he arrives is to be entranced by a silent sylph whose ethereal beauty is as stunning as her passionate love for Warfield's flowers and fields and creatures. 

Until now, Meriel has kept her distance from normal society, spending her days at one with nature and safe from the nightmare that nearly destroyed her as a child. She is content to live alone, until the handsome intruder begins to inspire dreams of the world beyond her sanctuary. He understands her as no one else ever has--and because she lives outside society's rules, she sees no need to restrain her desire for the man who is surely her destined mate.

Though Dominic’s sense of duty helps him control his longing for his brother’s future bride, Meriel’s untamed spirit proves more powerful than he can resist. In her garden paradise, passion binds them body and soul despite the agonizing consequences.

Can Meriel forgive Dominic's deceit once she learns he is not Kyle, and can Kyle forgive the betrayal of the brother who had once been closer than his own shadow? Then past and present collide in a dangerous cataclysm that may bring destruction--or lasting love and a hope for beginnings.
