Family Jewels
Family Jewels - M.J. O'Shea

So this was my second by this author and what a different journey this one was. Corkscrewed was such a surprisingly fantastic read (see review here) that I just expected more here.

 

I really enjoyed how this booked opened and my only initial complaint was the continuous time jumps and therefore lack of relationship development that I felt could have really enhanced what was taking place between them.  I mean we get an initial hookup and then miss the next SEVEN dates.  SEVEN!  Really?

 

But they came together for me and while I knew the shit would hit the fan at some point, I enjoyed not knowing how the hell this would ever work out.

 

Well...

 

Well...

 

After about 70% this book took a tailspin into another storyline that just left me wondering in the end what the point even was.  And the mysterious murderer...smack me upside the head...that came out of nowhere and made zero sense.

 

I probably would have landed around a 4 had things not gone this route so like I said, I enjoyed myself...but good grief. This last bit drops this to a easy 3 star book.  

 

So unfortunate, as I feel that had there been some structure at all or editing in this it could have been so much better.  But maybe it's just me.

 

 

After sitting here for a few more hours thinking on this and getting further commentary from Marco, I just can't with the stupidity of some of this.  And that ending...

 

*drops rating from 3 to 2*

Whiteout
Whiteout - Elyse Springer

 

What a damn nice surprise read that was!  I really loved it all.  From the suspense, to the uncomfortable not knowing what the hell to believe, to the ending. I was pretty captivated throughout the entire book.  About halfway through the book the direction shifts a good bit and while I was good with the direction, it could have also gone a completely different direction and I think I would have been just as pleased.  I do wish we would have gotten some dual POV, especially towards the end, or perhaps even switching completely at Part 2.

 

**Highly Recommended**

 

Also - I am kinda disappointed that the next in this series is FF.  Yikes.  I mean whatever floats your boat, but that does not interest me at all.  Too bad really as I really enjoyed this author.

A Time to Rise
A Time to Rise - Tal Bauer

 

I'm left rather confused and disappointed I have to say. 

 

The first 60% of this was really great. I loved all the characters and the connection between Chris and Alain was pretty off the charts. 

 

Then...

 

Then...

 

Then...

 

Then that end. I'm not even sure what to say about it all honestly. I need more but given the state of things I'm not sure how this could end happily at all. Very intrigued to see.
