Dirty Martini - J.A. Konrath
Dirty Martini - J.A. Konrath
This is one of my favorite thriller series of all time. Jacqueline Daniels is badass and one of those characters that you just can't get enough of.
This book is no exception!
From the beginning it was an intense, thrill ride that was very different from the other cases Jack has to solve. It made the pages turn more rapidly knowing that something sinister was coming up!
This was a fantastic thriller and maybe a new favorite of this series. I literally flew through the story!
Check out this series, read in order or out of order, it doesn't matter. They're that good!

The Eyes Of The Dragon - Stephen King
The Eyes of the Dragon - Stephen King

 

I never thought I'd see the day that I would be reading a fantasy novel from a horror master, but here we are!
It wasn't a masterpiece, but I still really enjoyed it. It was easy-to-read, had adventure and cunning things happen. There was dragons, royalty and magicians. It had so many great elements of fantasy that I look for.
The story itself was around the two princes. I liked the story, but felt it took forever to get to where it ended. Then the ending felt rushed. 
I'm hoping the next book, Fairy Tale, is better. We will see though.

ONE TRUE SENTENCE by Craig McDonald
One True Sentence - Craig McDonald

In Paris in 1924, Hector is part of the Lost Generation. He spends time writing in bars or meeting Ernest Hemingway and others there or at salons at Gertrude Stein's place. A string of murders of literary magazine editors occurs. Stein has decided to have the mystery writers gathering at her salons discover who is committing the murders especially since one murder occurred at one of her salons. Who did it? Who finds the murderer?

 

I enjoyed this book. It started slow for me since it is part of a series and was not the first story so I had to do a little catch up. It picked up a lot as the story started going with the murders and the Nada movement getting involved. I liked how Hector started following clues and how he checked with Hemingway on his (Hector's) love life. That was a bit messy. Hector's train of thought was interesting to follow as he was putting the clues together as to who was guilty. He looked at everyone. The police followed his line of thinking as well as Simon, the detective, who consulted with him.

 

I liked the mixture of real people with fictional ones. I liked Hector and Brinke. Molly was a little aloof. Hemingway and Stein gave flavor to the story as Hector and Brinke were very involved with them. As the story concluded, I did not figure out who did all the murders until most of it was explained to me. With the last scene of the book, I wonder what happened with Hector. Did he fulfill his promises?

A Wicked Snow - Gregg Olsen
A Wicked Snow - Gregg Olsen
I am really starting to enjoy this author! His stories are right up my alley. I love a murder mystery, real or fictional. It's my ideal book!
This story did not disappoint!!!!
There was a huge mystery surrounding this investigator and her mother. Her mother disappeared and the circumstances shrouding it were unlike anything I have heard of. It was a wild read! It was twisted, dark, slightly graphic and horrifying at times, but a great story!
I could even see a next book for this one. One that might give us more insight in to Hannah. Especially given the information she knows now.
I definitely look forward to reading more from this author and highly recommend his stories to anyone looking for a thrill!

The Book Of Life - Deborah Harkness
The Book of Life - Deborah Harkness

 

With the third season on the television, I knew I needed to get this Third book read before I sat to watch it.
Geez, the chapters are ginormous!! It such a slow-paced book that it felt like forever to read it. Although this story has more action and is more enjoyable than the previous two books, it still took forever to read!
As I said, the action surpasses my expectations here. The story is intense at times. The ending is beautiful and what I wanted and more! Like how does one root for a witch and a vampire to find some form of happiness, but I did.
Now there is only one book left, Time's Convert. I look forward to it, but trepidaciously. Will it be another chunkster? Probably. Do I think this story came together and I have no idea what the last will be about? Absolutely!
