The Watchmaker's Daughter by CJ Archer - My Thoughts
The Watchmaker's Daughter - C.J. Archer

Upon starting this book I was worried that it was going to fall into DNF land or at least 2 Star Land at the very least, but you know what?  It surprised me! 

Yes, it has problems.  The heroine is sometimes a little slow on the uptake, as my mom used to say and things would have gone much smoother had she and the hero, or even she and some of the other characters, actually talked about things.  But you know... I couldn't put it down even with all that!

I wish there was a bit more explanation of the magic that is hinted about through most of the book.  And I wish we had some resolution of the hero, Matt's, problem.

I loved the cast of secondary characters - they are very found family and that, admittedly, is one of my most favourite things. 

I honestly shouldn't have enjoyed this book but I did!  I'm ready to read more.

Rebel by Zoe Archer 2.99!
Rebel - Zoe Archer

On the Canadian frontier in 1875, nature is a harsh mistress. But the supernatural can really do you in. . . 

A Lone Wolf

Nathan Lesperance is used to being different. He's the first Native attorney in Vancouver, and welcome neither with white society nor his sometime tribe. Not to mention the powerful wildness he's always felt inside him, too dangerous to set free. Then he met Astrid Bramfield and saw his like within her piercing eyes. Now, unless she helps him through the harsh terrain and the harsher unknowns of his true abilities, it could very well get him killed. . . 

And The Woman Who Left The Pack

Astrid has traveled this path before. Once she was a Blade of the Rose, protecting the world's magic from unscrupulous men, with her husband by her side. But she's loved and lost, and as a world-class frontierswoman, she knows all about survival. Nathan's searing gaze and long, lean muscles mean nothing but trouble. Yet something has ignited a forgotten flame inside her: a burning need for adventure, for life--and perhaps even for love. . .

Opening up a Pandora's box of secrets
The Goodbye Look - Ross Macdonald

This was my first Ross Macdonald novel, and it's definitely not going to be my last. The plot was amazing, with Macdonald's merciful detective Lew Archer called in to investigate the theft of a gold box and the letters contained. What followed was an intricate tale of decades-old crimes, long-buried secrets, and innocent people caught in between. I finished the book with an appreciation for Macdonald's under-appreciated talent, one that deserves as wide an audience today as it had back in his own life.

Review of Best Kept Secret by Jeffrey Archer
Best Kept Secret - Jeffrey Archer

I found this third book in the Clifton series to once again have me turning pages - but the feeling of "I can't want to get back to the story" was not quite there like the first two in the series.  While I still enjoy the characters (although as I said for the last book - they are all either 100% perfect or 100% evil), it feels like the story simply goes from one incredibly dramatic moment to the next.  There was more of a long-term buildup in the first book that isn't there any more.  I will certainly continue the series as it is a fun historical fiction adventure.
