Amazing beginning to a new series
Spotless - Camilla Monk

This book blew me out of the water! There are so many things I can say about it but I don’t even know where to begin. I downloaded it on a whim and ended up staying up the entire night because I couldn't put it down. The closest thing I can think of to compare it to is the movie Red with Bruce Willis. Monk is very gifted writer who puts her own spin on a hitman romance.

 

First, I must say that I absolutely love every character in this book no matter how big or small. Island, the lead female protagonist, is hilarious but also realistic! I found myself relating to her on multiple occasions. March, the male lead opposite of her, was enigmatic with just the right amount of charm. I felt like each character was well developed regardless of their role. I became so invested in the story, I think I actually cried at one point. While the overall plot wasn't so complicated that I was blindsided, it was satisfying to watch everything fall into place.


The only real issue I had with the novel was that sometimes the author would be describing something and I had no idea to what she was referring to. I would have to return to a couple paragraphs previous to understand what I was supposed to be currently reading.

 

Spoiler though, the ending is a bit of a cliffhanger. I am so angry that this book isn't even out yet because I can’t wait for book two. Spotless is one of the novels that digs itself inside you and makes you want so much more. I feel that right now, no book can possibly compare and I will be stuck in reading limbo until a book half as worthy catches my eye.

India Black, Madam of Espionage #1
India Black - Carol K. Carr

India Black was so much more than I expected, I absolutely adored this book. India is a wonderful, sassy, hilarious & brilliant character, plus she has this devil may care attitude which is perfect being that she's a madam.

 

I'll admit I did a little happy dance when I discovered that there is more adventures. Ridiculously excited to get my digits onto those!!

 

4 Stars.

The Honorary Consul, Graham Greene
The Honorary Consul - Graham Greene Angst. Too much of it. Apparently angst bores me, whether it be Catholic angst, angst about being incapable of love, angst about being a failure or anything else this motley crew of idiots, incompetents, buffoons, alcoholics and pompous arses find to angst about. Which is a shame, because when the plot is advancing it's a fairly good story, though the plot turns on an imbecilic decision by one of the protagonists. There's a good, taut, 150p novel struggling to escape all the angst but ultimately drowning in it.

The Honorary Consul - Graham Greene

I seem to be oscillating wildly from amused by the farcical kidnapping situation and boredom with all the angst about love (or inability to do so).
