Dark Triumph (My Fair Assassin #2)
Dark Triumph - Robin LaFevers

It's been a number of years since I read Grave Mercy, the first book in the My Fair Assassin Trilogy by Robin LaFevers.  I didn't take the time to write a review, but I rated it a 4 star book. I do remember enjoying the coming-of-age story regarding assassin nuns in a fictionalized Brittany where supernatural gods/saints interact with the real world.   

 

The second book in the trilogy Dark Triumph just didn't hold my interest. On the one hand, I couldn't put it down, on the other I found myself speed-reading/skimming just to find out what happened.  I know I missed a lot of details, but I have no interest in going back to pick up what I missed.

 

I don't know how much of my opinion is due to the specific book and how much of that is due to changes in reading taste (after a number of YA heavy years I seem to be reading more traditional SF). I do think I will eventually give the last book in the trilogy a try.

The Distiller's Darling - Jamaila Brinkley,Rebecca Norinne

 

Norinne and Brinkley are a powerhouse duo. From wine country to whiskey royalty, The Distiller's Darling packs an enduring blend of flavors. Wine and whiskey may not mix, but Iain and Naomi are the perfect combination of sultry and sweet. She brings out his naughty side and he awakens her emotional side. She's always been passionate about her art, her hopes and her dreams, but she has never believe in love. Amidst the secrets and well meaning, yet overbearing parents, these two manage to find something special. Can they make it stick? The Distiller's Darling keeps the subtlety to a minimum, while presenting a flavorful look at love.

Lord of Secrets (Rogues to Riches, #5) by Erica Ridley
Lord of Secrets - Erica Ridley

 

He's the smartest person in the room, except when it comes to matters of the heart. Heath is a whiz when it comes to solving a problem, but clueless when it comes to love. Tasked with unveiling a nuisance, he ends up finding his heart. Eleanora is used to being overlooked. Standing in the background is just one of her many talents. When her other secret starts to make waves within the upper class, her greatest wish could prove to be her undoing. Lord of Secrets is about taking risks. Eleanora and Heath are two lonely hearts looking to find a home. Life has a way of placing a person right where they were meant to be. There's pleasure wrapped up in this heartwarming scandal.
