For Better and Worse
For Better and Worse - Margot Hunt

On their first date Natalie and Will, both law students, joked that they could plan the perfect murder together. After fifteen years of marriage, one son together, and a principal who has molested that son they will find out if they were right about getting away with murder. As a defense attorney Natalie does not want her son to go through the trauma of a trial. So she decides to take care of the problem with the help of her unwilling husband.

I love the cover. At first I wasn't sure about this book because it kind of reminded me of The Murder Game by Catherine McKenzie which was excellent, so this one didn't stand a chance. I was wrong on so many levels. I couldn't get enough of this story. I had to know what was going to happen. Could they really get away with it?! It was so suspenseful! I liked Natalie. I liked how their family seemed normal - both parents loved their kid and would do anything for him, after many years of marriage Natalie and Will weren't as close as they used to be, good people making bad choices. Did I mention the suspense? Constantly worrying if today would be the day they'd be thrown in jail. So good. Margot Hunt's "Best Friends Forever" has been on my TBR list forever. I definitely won't be putting that one off any longer!

Thank you to Netgalley and HARLEQUIN - MIRA for an ARC.

From Dead to Worse
From Dead to Worse - Charlaine Harris I just finished re-reading this and I already feel like I barely remember what happened. Part of that is because I was reading it while sleep deprived, but part of it is because this was another one that didn't really have a lot going on. I mean, a lot happened, I guess the Were "war" thing, Jason/Crystal's marriage disaster and Sookie having to break Calvin's fingers because Jason is a cowardly asshole and Crystal is an unfaithful garbage can, Sam turned into a lion for a change, Sookie spent more time with great-grandpa Niall the fairy prince, the Louisiana vamps got new leadership, Sookie ran over a vamp, Bob was turned back into a human, Sookie found Hadley's ex and her son and found out Hunter is a telepath like herself, I think this was the one in which Eric remembered his time spent with Sookie, etc., but so much of it just felt kind of...bland, or something. I feel like this one and the last one were just kind of "filler" books. Definitely not my favorite, but still perfectly enjoyable, overall.

Kill't Dead...Or Worse(Nick Sibelius Series Book 1) by Richard Hacker
Kill't Dead...Or Worse: Sex, murder, and toxic waste: Nowhere Else But Texas - Richard Carleton Hacker

  

syns

 

After a murdered partner, a cheating wife and a lost job in Houston, Nick Sibelius sets up a private investigation business in a small Texas town hoping to find some peace and maybe, himself. When two lovers disappear and a fisherman turns up dead, he finds himself drawn into a web of crime and deceit involving MaryLou, a beautiful woman with a mysterious past; Junior, a failed farmer whose best intentions seem to always result in a dead body; and Barry, a sociopathic dentist turned illegal toxic waste entrepreneur with a violent right wing agenda. When the felon who killed Nick’s partner in Houston joins forces with Barry, Nick must not only stop the toxic waste dumping while finding his client’s missing daughter, but keep from being killed in the process. In the end, MaryLou’s dark secret will either save him or kill him -- whichever comes first.

 

 

 

my though

 

This was a quick, fun and exciting crime mystery book. I really enjoyed this book it has just the right amount of everything.

Mystery, suspense, humor and action.

The characters were fun to follow and you really never knew up to the end who you can trust and who you can’t.

They were easy to relate to and easy to follow and like while each of them were unique an likeable in their own way.

The story lie was amazing and kept me in the edge of my seat up to the last page.

Overall this was a great and enjoyable book that kept me guessing and entertained all the way through. Was written very nicely and easy to follow and fast paced.

I very much look forward to the next book

I rate it 4 ★

Vision Volume 1
Vision Vol. 1: Little Worse Than A Man (Vision (2015-)) - Mike Del Mundo,Gabriel Hernandez Walta,Tom King

Due to stellar reviews from Grim and Char, I decided to pick this up. I'm not familiar with the Marvel universe so I wasn't sure what to expect. I thought it would have action, perhaps some humour thrown in but I wasn't prepared for the themes this comic dealt with.

Vision craves the dream of having a family and as he was created, he creates a family to give him the life he thinks he needs to fit in and be normal. His wife Virginia and his twin teenage children, Viv and Vin move with him to suburbia and try to settle into a life that is ordinary.

Things take a dark turn when Virginia has to protect herself and her children from a threat but doesn't want to disrupt their 'normal' life so does not tell Vision about the outcome of the altercation. Things spiral out of control as secrets come to light and their perfect family existence starts to crumble.

This read brought up all kinds of questions regarding humanity, family life, social norms and prejudice. For me this was far more emotional than expected, I felt sad as I was drawn deeper in the story. Each member of the family had different stresses but they were of the same theme, the need to appear normal, at all costs, no matter the personal sacrifice.

Tragic and a little heartbreaking, this was a far different super hero comic than I expected.
