Again
You’re the One I Don’t Want - Carrie Aarons

This is book #2 in The Tenth Girl series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and too avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Annabelle is on the verge of getting everything she has worked so hard for.  The only thing that seems to be stopping her right now is the mad feelings she has for her ex-boyfriend who just moved back to town.  Can she move past it when she sees him everywhere?

 

Boone cannot get past the fact he literally ran into his ex.  She left a scar he is not sure he can get over.  He needs to concentrate on his new job.  Easier said than done.

 

The characters just bring the heat!  The sparks are jumping all around these two.  I absolutely loved the heartfelt emotions that these characters showed.  I loved that they learned to talk and more again.  I really thought this was a good book and a stunning addition to an already amazing series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Release Tour for All the Frogs in Manhattan by Carrie Aarons
 
 
Title: All the Frogs in Manhattan
Author: Carrie Aarons
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 5, 2017 Cover Design: Okay Creations, Inc
 
 
 
You know how Cinderella had the whole glass slipper, pumpkin carriage, fairy godmother thing?
 
Yeah…with foot-destroying stilettos, Uber, and my Twitter horoscope, my life is far from a happily ever after.
 
In fact, instead of Prince Charming, I end up dating every slimy, scaly, brainless frog in the kingdom of Manhattan. And by frog, I mean all of the stereotypical bad guys that Mom and Lifetime movies warned you about.
 
The meathead player.
The mommy's boy.
The namedropper.
The cheapskate.
 
If they suck at relationships, I’ve probably kissed those cold, clammy lips in the hopes of finding love. Until one day, when one man with commitment issues offers to help me find the Romeo to my Juliet.
 
But what happens when the frog who was never supposed to turn into a prince kisses you at midnight? Ok fine, he propositioned me for some afternoon delight after brunch, but not everything can be straight out of a fairytale.
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Author of romance novels such as Red Card and On Thin Ice, Carrie Aarons writes sexy, swoony and sarcastic characters who won't get out of her head until she puts them down on a page.
 
Carrie has wanted to be an author since the first time she opened a book, and can’t imagine a better or more maddening profession.
 
When she isn't in a writing coma, Carrie is chasing her Great Dane/Lab puppy through the dog parks of New Jersey, or trying to make her husband binge watch the latest Netflix craze.

Behind Chocolate Bars (Chocolate Covered Mystery, #3)
Behind Chocolate Bars - Kathy Aarons

No as good as the first two books in the series.  It felt like Michelle lost some of that individuality that made her stand; she lost some of her wise-cracking nature and felt a lot more vanilla.  It also felt like a lot more chocolate descriptions that could have doubled as marketing copy.

 

The mystery was good though and I like the direction the author has gone with Detective Lockett.  Aarons isn't rushing the romance - if anything it's moving at a snail's pace - but I do think the whole sub-story line with Leo was rushed and I don't think she did any favours to PTSD with the way she neatly wrapped it all up in a bow at the end.

 

Generally I enjoyed the read, if not as much as I did the first two books.  I'll definitely read the next one.

 

This storyline takes place in the weeks coming up to Halloween and culminates on Halloween night; since my original book for Set on Halloween square for Halloween Book Bingo 2016 hasn't yet arrived (damn you postal services!), I'm using this as my substitute.

Reading progress update: I've read 4 out of 288 pages.
Behind Chocolate Bars - Kathy Aarons

Ok, I've given up on waiting for my Set on Halloween book for bingo to arrive.  I'd planned on reading A Graveyard for Lunatics: Another Tale of Two Cities by Ray Bradbury  and I even paid for expedited shipping to get it here faster, but it's been almost 3 weeks now.  Yesterday, this book arrived as part of my Book Buddy Swap box and it takes place on Halloween, so substitution made.

 

Thank you mystery book swap partner!  :D

Behind Chocolate Bars (A Chocolate Covered Mystery #3) by Kathy Aarons
Behind Chocolate Bars - Kathy Aarons


Best friends and business partners Michelle and Erica have a monstrous to-do list as they prepare for the annual West Riverdale Halloween Fair. Their shop, Chocolates and Chapters, will have a booth at the event, where Michelle will serve spooky delights while Erica displays an assortment of spine-chilling books.

Thank goodness the teenagers from Erica’s comic-book club are chipping in to help. But one of their volunteers winds up in trouble after a woman’s body is found in an abandoned house—with the teen’s superhero key ring close by.

The teen swears he didn’t do it, but he’s obviously hiding something—leaving Michelle and Erica with a witch’s cauldron of questions. Soon they discover that the dead woman was tricking a whole bunch of people out of more than just treats. Now these two friends must go door-to-door if they hope to unmask a killer…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I never used to be very fond of food/pet mysteries but the older I've gotten the more I've grown to like them and understand what makes them so likable.

Of course with Halloween being around the corner who can resist a sweet holiday related read filled with both tricks and treats?

I really feel like readers of any age can enjoy Behind Chocolate Bars. From teens to adults this book has it all for all ages.

I was happy that Aarons makes it easy for first time readers of the series to follow along, I love her town and her cast which are fun and fantastic I love her writing and personality.

Aarons has a great way of bringing a scene together that keeps you plenty entertained. Behind Chocolate Bars is a fun quick witty mystery filled with bounds of fun for all of us.

A great book choice for one of my Halloween reads!
