MY THOUGHTS

 
While the mystery was a unique one, it was delivered so tediously, with constant time jumps, that flipped from one to the other with barely a breath in between.  Added to that were the many characters to keep track of and I found myself not able to engage in this mystery by Megan Miranda.

This is my second book by her, the other one being Come Find Me...which I did like, so I will probably give her books another try in the future.  With a high number of three-ish star ratings for this book...I was expecting to like this more than everyone else...and I actually liked it less than...just goes to show you never can tell how you feel about a book based off reviews alone.  When it comes to mysteries, it all comes down to what your mind lets you believe.  The narration by Rebekkah Ross was also a little lacking or maybe just annoying after a while of listening to her.  Meh, I don't know...

5 Star Siege
Sergeant's Christmas Siege - Megan Crane

 

She’s a straight-arrow, by-the-rules Alaskan State trooper so Kate Holiday’s objective when it comes to investigating a local band of secretive commandos in remote Grizzly Harbor is clear – disband Alaska Force and arrest them, but she didn’t count on the diabolical temptation of Templeton Cross. He’s always been good at keeping his game face on and his emotions hidden, but working with Kate brings memories of losses, Templeton prefers to keep locked up tight. With pressure mounting and Christmas drawing closer, it’s a given that someone is going to get hurt.

 

This ‘Alaska Force’ romance is a slow burn romance that requires a lot of hard work as both parties are determined not to give in to their emotions, the electrical chemistry or the heat building up between them, but it seems the more they fight it, the harder they will fall. These strong, vibrant characters captures hearts and provides a delightfully entertaining courtship that makes readers chuckle. Lots of emotions – not matter how much the hero and heroine try to keep them locked down – flow the pages as Templeton and Kate try to uncover who is behind some mysterious incidents that surround the Alaska Force.

 

The plot is fast paced and full exciting events and snaky commentary that builds thrilling suspense and adrenaline pumping excitement through the story which keeps readers on the edge of their seat from beginning to end. Some ‘What the… twists and turns keeps readers guessing and a hero that spends his time trying to convince his careful, wary trooper that there is more to the holidays makes readers hold on tight to this intense, satisfying and entertaining holiday read.

My grandmother lived this book
Glow - Megan E. Bryant
GLOW by Megan E Bryant
GLOW tells the heartbreaking story of the young women who went to work for the companies that used radium to make glow in dark objects, mostly watch faces for the soldiers of WWI. My grandmother worked briefly for The Radium Dial company in Ottawa Illinois. Fortunately she remained healthy although she went every year of life (she died at 96) to The Argonne National Laboratory for extensive testing.
GLOW is unflinching in relating the horrific illnesses that plagued the radium workers. Although GLOW is aimed at young adult audience, adult readers will also react favorably to this tale.
Bryant uses the true stories of actual workers to underscore her fictionalized work. Sisters Lisa and Lydia help support their family by the “easy work and good pay” offered by the companies. This mostly untold story is also related in THE RADIUM GIRLS by Kate Moore.
Very sensitive readers may be upset by the descriptions (accurate) of the results of “tipping” to paint tiny numerals on watch faces with the radium based paints.
5 of 5 stars

Coming Home to the Cowboy (Redemption Ranch #2) by: Megan Ryder
Coming Home to the Cowboy (Redemption Ranch #2) - Megan Ryder

 

 

 

We only see what others allow us to see. The philosophy of humanity seems to be less vulnerability more masquerade. With Chase, Ryder lifts off the blinders and exposes the emotional cavity to some healing light. Coming Home to the Cowboy is the journey Hailey and Chase. From long time friends, to secret lovers and second chance romance. Along the way each learns about life, love, loss and redemption, while hopelessly falling in love. These characters dig deep into a heart and take up residence within your soul.

Velocity Weapon by Megan E. O'Keefe - My Thoughts
Velocity Weapon - Megan E O'Keefe

Wow, wow, wow! 

There's not a lot I can say about this book without giving away all the delicious twists and turns, do you'll just have to believe me when I say what starts off as an interesting interstellar tale turns into a rollercoaster ride of epic proportions just shy of halfway through. 

I loved the characters.  Sanda is an excellent main character as is her brother Biran, I enjoyed getting to know both of them and I'm pretty sure there's more to learn in the future.  I seen this book called twisty, but let me tell you, it's UBER twisty and I was just hanging on for dear life.

One of the subplots seemed incredibly out of place and I had no idea how it fit in to the main story... and to be honest, I don't think I fully get it even now, but I'm ready to find out.  *LOL* 

Look, I enjoyed the hell out of this book and recommend it to anyone who likes space adventure.  There's a cliffhanger at the end, of course, the whole damned book is filled with them!  But that's okay!  And it's killing me that I don't know when the next book is coming out!!
