Review Tour - Fireworks

 

Fireworks

by Sarina Bowen

 

Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a wiener on the traffic map.

 

Let that sink in. Like it’s her fault the traffic pattern created a perfect schlong? 

 

Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.

 

A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.

 

But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.

 

His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.

 

Things are about to go boom.

Fireworks (True North, #6)Fireworks by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #6, in the True North series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding of the series, and too avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this compelling series in order.

Skye returns to the place she hates the most to help out the sister she always wanted. When she gets there, tables have turned. There is now danger if she pushes too far in finding her sister. Who can she turn to?

Benito AKA "Ben" is a blast from the past, who has always had a thing for Skye. She was the one that got away, and he has no intentions of letting that happen again. He also has to find her sister and solve his case.

While this author is a definite auto purchase, she always brings the goods to the table. In this story, we get a second chance romance with such heart and heat that every page is a sizzling delight! I loved the banter, and was eagerly turning each page to get to the next.

October 2018 Reading Wrap Up
In Her Bones - Kate Moretti
Mr. Churchill's Secretary - Susan Elia MacNeal
Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance - Bill McKibben
Don't Call Me Princess: Essays on Girls, Women, Sex, and Life - Peggy Orenstein

Big thank you to Obsidian Blue and MR for another successful Halloween Bingo. I am all good on suspense/horror/creepy reading until next year. Also a thank you to Dewey Read-a-thon, for without that one weekend of nothing but reading I don't think I would have gotten my first bingo. I read for a total of four bingos (two columns, one row, one diagonal).

 

Not much in quantity, but good stuff quality wise. I found a new series to glom (Maggie Hope mysteries) and a new author to read more from (Kate Moretti). I'm feeling some strong effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), so the reading challenges and read-a-thons helped me get out of my inertia. 

 

Here is what I read this month:

1. Eighth Grade Bites #1: The Chronicles of Vladmir Tod Graphic Novel by Heather Brewer, Tony Lee, and Julia Laud - 2.5 stars

 

2. The Turn of the Screw by Henry James - 2 stars

 

3. Leverage in Death (In Death #47) by JD Robb - 3.5 stars

 

4. In Her Bones by Kate Moretti - 5 stars

 

5. Mr. Churchill's Secretary (Maggie Hope Mystery #1) by Susan Ella MacNeal - 4.5 stars

 

6. Croc's Return (Bitten Point #1) by Eve Langlais - 3 stars

 

7. Killer Countdown (Man on a Mission #6) by Amelia Autin - 1.5 stars

 

8. Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol - 4 stars

 

9. Don't Call Me Princess: Essays on Girls, Woman, Sex, and Life by Peggy Orenstein - 5 stars

 

10. Radio Free Vermont by Bill McKibben - 4.5 stars

Intimate Grandeur: Vermont's State House by Nancy Price Graff
Intimate Grandeur: Vermont's State House - Nancy Price Graff,David Schutz II

As advertised. 'Intimate Grandeur' is a coffee-table book history of Vermont's State House. While I'm sure that every state house building is noteworthy simply because of its place at the center of politics, Vermont's is a beautifully restored gem of 19th century public architecture.

I was lucky enough to have a guided tour 'after hours' of the building this past winter and was awestruck at the massive yet delicate plasterwork, the mostly-original custom lighting fixtures and furniture, all restored and converted from gas to electricty. Every detail down to the carpets were brought back after decades of neglect.

'Intimate Grandeur' is a history of the building itself, and its two predecessors, but also a history of civic responsibility and preservation. Even when fashions changed and inconvenient 'decadent' chandeliers were banished from chambers they were carefully stowed away, waiting to be rediscovered.

I picked this book up as a memento of the tour. Beautifully done.

Reviewer's comments:

 

"It is easy to feel drawn to each character in the book and you begin to want to follow along with Sam and her self discovery. . . "

 

"This was a fun and suspenseful read! Being familiar with the northeast, I found the descriptions of the woodlands and environment spot on, in fact, it made me want to go for a hike in mid read; too bad it was -10 degrees.

Book description:

A role-playing game staged in the remote woods of the North East Kingdom, turns into a deadly pastime when a killer uses the game as a means to seize his victims.

 

A dead body is discovered in the woods by Samantha Tremblay, a Forest Ranger who works at Maidstone Lake. The locals call her Sam. She swears to bring the killer to justice for the victim but soon finds herself in over her head, as she works alongside New Hampshire Trooper Zachary Gerard assigned to the case. More bodies turn up and motivation to solve the crimes mount.

 

Old secrets get in Sam’s way, and she isolates herself from others. Haunted by unanswered questions about the past, she lives with cracked relationships—between herself and her father—her friends. Mourning her mother, Samantha feels a pull toward her heritage, the Abenaki tribe, but is afraid to open that doorway. Could the tribe help discover the answers to her quest for the truth?

 

Pulled emotionally from all directions, Samantha Tremblay searches for answers to find a killer, and to discover herself.
