CIA and Turing code secret
Simple Genius - David Baldacci

Michelle is a bit suicidal. 

 

Sean is trying to help so he get her into a psy ward. 

 

Monk Turing died and it was at first ruled as suicide. 

 

Viggie is the daughter of Monk and is smart but also a person need help.

 

Sean go at it alone and go to a Baggage Town where Viggie lives to investigate the killing. 

 

Another person got killed while he was there and someone shot at him.

 

Things got interesting. 

 

Michelle has some suppressed memories when she was 6. 

 

The third of the book is all about relationship between Sean and Michelle and how they recovered from where they were mentally before. 

 

There are really good moments that is between Michelle and Veggie, the bonding thing. 

 

Sean is just trying to do his best under not so ideal circumstances. He does not work well when Michelle is not there watching his back. 

 

And there are some other key players Champ, and Whitefield and Valarie. 

 

And it is about a secret long ago. 

 

The revealing part goes pretty fast once Sean got the clues. 

 

The CIA camp is doing something secretive and not so good. Sean suspected that and readers going to find out with him.

 

Nice read. A bit slow starts. The characters building is so well done and it almost make up for the non action part of the book. 

 

4.5 stars 

 

Reading this for Murder most Foul

As a mystery, not going really well as it is still unknown why two persons were killed. 

 

On the characters building side, it is so good. 

 

Viggie is the daughter of Monk was her father and he was dead. 

 

The scene is about Michelle having previously told Viggie she has problem cleaning out her car, and Viggie had done it for her. Michelle got upset that Viggie mess with her stuff. This set the scene that Michelle apologized to Viggie and Viggie understood her that they both have experienced this out of control moments. 

 

It is hard to sort out emotional stuff sometimes. Lot of people are pretending they are under control. And this is a good moments to strengthen the characters to make it more real.

Michelle has lost some of her marbles, and was persuaded to check herself in to a psychiatric ward for being a bit suicidal. 

 

Sean, being a good friend and partner, paid for the damage to keep Michelle out of a law suit. He took up a new case without Michelle. 

 

Michelle, being who she is, found trouble while trying to get better. 

 

Sean, have someone shot at him and found a dead body. 

 

Not as good as other crime novel the writer wrote. The story drag on a bit. 

 

Reading for Murder Most Foul square.

A Simple Romance by J.H. Knight 4 Star Romance!
A Simple Romance - J.H. Knight

Skip thought he had it all: the fabulous husband, the great apartment, and the teaching job he’d always wanted. Even the cat was perfect. When his partner of eight years decides he wants something else—something that doesn’t involve Skip or the apartment or even the cat—Skip decides it’s time to go home to the other side of the country. 

However, Skip’s hometown doesn’t just hold a loving meddling mother but also the memories of his awkward crush on a boy he met his senior year in high school. A boy he humiliated himself in front of just when it looked as if his fantasies might become reality. Finding out Paul Miller is now working at the same high school where Skip has just been hired flips his world upside down. After a heated night together, Skip is happy being friends with benefits. Paul will have to convince him love is worth the risk.

 

Review

I liked the humanness of this romance.

Skip's marriage to Monty fell apart and he didn't even really see it coming. He doubts trusting his feelings.

He has a wonderful support system with a bestie and her husband, a great sister and her partner and an amazing mom. 

This has the moving back home theme in a lovely way. Skip ends up teaching at his old high school where it just so happens his high school crush teachers too. Oh, and their moms are friends and in PFLAP together. Squee!

Paul is super hot. Super great. And is just getting over the death of his long term boyfriend. 

Skip has a lot of fear of love ending and for the most part it felt real and understandable but he doesn't talk about his feelings enough for me and I kinda wanted to bop him in the head a few times.

And yet... a real pleasure of a read overall.

Sale .99 Kinda Don't Care (The Simple Man Series Book 1) Kindle Edition

 

 

Kinda Don't Care (The Simple Man Series Book 1) Kindle Edition

 

She’s in a white dress that dances around her ankles, and her hair tumbles in a long sheet of curls down her back. A veil covers her beautiful eyes, and she smiles directly at him. Janie is everything Rafe’s ever imagined she would be on her wedding day. 

Breathtaking. Gorgeous. Perfect.

The moment he sees her walking down the aisle towards him, he knows that she’s the one.

Then she passes him, making her way to the man she’s to marry.

A man that wasn’t him.

A man that he knows with one hundred percent certainty isn’t good enough for her.

It seems that her father isn’t the only one who’s having a hard time giving her away. Rafe only wishes he knew why.

Everything about Janie sparks protective instincts he doesn’t feel for anyone, not even his own fiancé.

What he feels for the bride, however, isn’t merely a simple attraction. He knows that something is there just beneath the surface…if only he could reach it.

It has to be something huge, too, otherwise he wouldn’t be drinking whiskey straight from the flask in a church pew and wondering how many years he would do in prison if he shot the groom in front of about a hundred witnesses—half of those being cops.

He was good…but not that good.

A near-death experience cost Rafe almost six months of his memory, but right now he can’t help but feel like a huge mistake is being made on both of their parts. One that’s going to cost him everything.

Then she says I do.

Author note: I, Lani Lynn Vale, solemnly swear that there is NO CHEATING in this book...but looks are deceiving. So hang with me.
