Reading progress update: I've read 75 out of 237 pages.
Family Matters - Anthony Rolls

hmm, a lot of sharks in my entertainment today--just a fluke, I guess (was that a pun? sometimes I don't know...). I watched a Man from UNCLE episode today, and there was nasty, evil Carroll O'Conner with a lagoon full of sharks ready to eat any heroes asking to be tossed in (didn't go that way, haha bad guy, you lose/you lunch!), and then I put on Thunderball, and we have Largo bragging about catching sharks and selling them to eager customers. that's what you do if you're high up in SPECTRE...secondary income is something weird and exotic. 

 

finally, here I am immersed in Family Matters, which you would think would take me a million miles away from sharks...but Robert Kewdingham, now that he's decided not to loaf about and disappoint his wife and relations any more, is actually thinking to go to work as an engineer for a shark farm. proposed shark farm. anyway, I don't think Robert has decided to amount to something in time to avoid the various deaths by poison multiple family(!) members are planning for him.

 

so, sharks as a great selling-product--when people aren't being thrown to them--has been shoved in my face all day, and it's been fun. by the way, this book is perfect so far.

DNF at 30%
It Had to Be You - Delynn Royer

Such promise this book had. Such a tedious amount of work just to get to the 30% mark and I have already started and finished several books since starting this book. Calling it quits now.

Chaos in Death by J.D. Robb
Chaos in Death (In Death, #33.5) - J.D. Robb

Three former junkies are slaughtered in their flop. All were firmly on the road to recovery, employed, doing therapy sessions in the local clinic and center...So who would want to kill them with the glee the killer must have felt, judging by the state of the crime scene and the testimony of a witness who saw the abnormally disfigured killer laughing and dancing down the street afterward?


I liked this Dr Jekyll/Mr Hyde twist. I had no idea who the killer was (I was wrong with both my suspects), the short glimpse into the killer's mind at the beginning was nicely twisted, the plot and mystery were intriguing, and it was nice seeing most of the gang back in their element.

The story definitely had the potential for a full-length novel, though, yet it didn't feel crammed or "busy". I just wouldn't mind reading a lengthier rendition.

She’s Kicking Ass Again in Strong to the Bone by Jon Land @jondland
Strong to the Bone (Caitlin Strong Novels) - Jon Land

Buckle your seatbelts, because Strong to the Bone by Jon Land is one rootin tootin, smash bang novel of action and mystery that culminates in a rip roaring ending not to be missed.

 

Strong to the Bone (Caitlin Strong, #9)

 

Goodreads  /  Amazon US  /  Amazon UK  /  Amazon CA

 

MY REVIEW

 

I am so happy to be back into a rootin’ tootin’ Caitlin Strong adventure. The Texas Rangers and Nazis…doesn’t bode well for the Nazis. LOL

 

Right off, Jon Land does what he does so well, makes me so curious and surprised about our prisoner of war camps in Texas during World War II, that questions arise. Why have I never thought of this before? Was I never taught in school? Is is true? I know a lot of people don’t care one way or another about prologues, but this one sure did it’s job. Sent me straight to Google. I had to know more.

 

I can picture Caitlin on top of the fire truck, spraying the rioters with the fire hose like Al Capone sprayed his enemies with his tommy gun. A young woman is in distress, possibly being raped, and nothing will stop Caitlin from going to her rescue.

 

If you are not familiar with Caitlin, let me introduce you. She comes from a long line of Texas Rangers, but until she was raped in college, she had no plans to follow in their footsteps. Now…she’s a kickass, no holds barred force to be reckoned with. She goes in with guns blazing,  her fists and legs pumping, doling out justice.

 

I love that Jon Land is constantly challenging Caitlin in personal and professional ways.

She teams up with her sweetie, Cort Wesley. He’s an ex Green Beret, maybe a bit tarnished, but that will only serve him well when he meets up with Armand Fiskar. Armand is the son of the man who created the Aryan Nation, only he has more grandiose plans.

 

I am lovin’ Paz, an ex Venezuelan secret policeman, sent to kill Cort. Now they walk together. I love characters who have walked the wild side, yet are able to redeem themselves.

 

And neo Nazis…smacks of reality.

 

Cort, Paz, and even Caitlin, though she doesn’t acknowledge it, have a little bit of help from the paranormal.

 

Moments to laugh, moments of anger, smiles and frowns, humanity in all its glory and disgust.

 

Jon Land’s creative writing shows his humorous side, when he allows his characters to replace the Captain’s cigarettes with the candy kind. Do you remember eating them as a kid?

 

The Aryan Nation, neo nazis, bioterrorism, organ transplants, weapons of mass destruction…so many underlying plots culminate in a blown out ending. I am a lifelong fan and eagerly await each and every story Jon Land has to tell.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Strong to the Bone by Jon Land.

London Noir by Ann Girdharry
London Noir: A gripping crime suspense t... London Noir: A gripping crime suspense thriller (Kal Medi Book 2) - Ann Girdharry

Closure for the first book.
All the things that you felt left hung in Good Girl Bad Girl were answered and put to rest in this book. I did love that, and the new plot too, as well as feeling it's complete.
If Kal Medi is in  a third book, it would HAVE to be a new plot, story and everything. No questions were left raised in book 2.
It was more exciting for me, and that is rare for a second book to better than the first. I feel that was as this story had a beginning, middle and end, where the first book wasn't like that at all.
Really good stuff together though!! I know many of you will enjoy reading about Kal Medi and all that she gets herself into.
