Snark abounds.
Sixth Grave on the Edge - Darynda Jones

How much trouble can one person get herself into?  Really?  And the cliff hanger was great and terrible at the same time. Can’t miss this one with all the snark and tribulations that center around Charley. Can’t wait for the next.

Good Story and Good Characters
Jane (I'm Still Single) Jones - Joan Reeves

Jane stared at the plastic tag and said she refused to wear it. She wasn’t some boy crazy teen, or a desperate woman on the make. She was a successful business woman.Jane was a textile designer.  So what if she wasn’t married. Jane was at her ten year HS reunion. Often Jane joked with her family she traveled through a time warp from NYC to her sleepy hometown in Vernon, Louisiana. In NYC she was J L Design in her hometown she was Jane Louise. Than her best friend from HS - Amber grabbed her arm and spun her around. She asked Jane if she was excited. . Jane had been following Amber’s lead since they were kids. Amber was the impulsive adventure and Jane was the impulsive adventure and Jane was the careful analyst. Amber put the tag on Jane and Jane just left it there. The reunion was a perfect chance to catch up with Amber.Only with Amber Jane confessed to her growing dissatisfaction with her life. Lately she thought about a home and children and not in a loft in NYC. Jane admitted she never knew how much she loved “home” until she left. Jane had shared everything with Amber since they were kids.  Jane thought Amber would tell her if he-Morgan- was going to show up. Morgan was the most famous alumnus of the from that HS. He went out in the world and made millions.Another friend Felicia said she was looking for husband number three and pointing herself toward Morgan. Than Amber jumped in and asked if she forgot to tell Jane Morgan was coming to the reunion. Jane decided she would leave. Jane had just said she wasn’t impressed with Morgan when Morgan spoke behind her. Morgan had been Jane’s secret boyfriend in HS. Jane had never forgotten him or his kiss. Something had driven them apart in the past. Little does Jane know Morgan still had feelings for her just as she does for him.

I enjoyed this book. It was a quick, easy, fun read with some drama thrown in. I thought Felicia was just to forward towards Morgan it annoyed me. I did find this predictable. At times I did get annoyed both with Jane and Morgan. I did like the pace and plot. I would have liked the book to be a little longer to show more of Morgan and Jane together. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.

Dirty Rich One Night Stand: Two Years Later (Dirty Rich, #7) by Lisa Renee Jones
Dirty Rich One Night Stand: Two Years Later - Lisa Renee Jones

 

 

Perfect is shaping up to be a whole lot of trouble for a hotshot lawyer and his equally tenacious wife. When last we saw them Reese and Cat, they had tangoed their way into each other's hearts while seducing us along for the ride. This time around there prove to be some even tougher battles ahead. Will love get them through the storm clouds headed their way? Jones is always intriguing. She keeps readers wanting more and never ceases to deliver.

My House Smells Wonderful....
Skinnytaste Fast and Slow: Knockout Quick-Fix and Slow Cooker Recipes - Gina Homolka,Heather K. Jones

I have the Crustless Apple Pie in my slowcooker and it smells great. It is basically just chunky applesauce, but there is nothing wrong with that!

 

There are a few recipes in this book that I want to try. But I am glad  my library had it on the shelves.

November 2018 wrap up
Daisy Jones & the Six - Taylor Jenkins Reid
Everyday Enchantments - Maria DeBlassie
Dark Voyage - Helen Susan Swift
Dissolution - C.J. Sansom
The Dreamers - Karen Thompson Walker
We Sold Our Souls - Grady Hendrix
Foundryside - Robert Jackson Bennett
The Clockmaker’s Daughter - Kate Morton
The Labyrinth of the Spirits - Carlos Ruiz Zafón

9 books finished off, all of them Netgalley reads. Some of them were unfinished from Bingo.

 

I had some rock and roll between We Sold Our Souls and Daisy Jones and some decent Fantasy from Foundryside as well as a passable ghost story in Dark Voyage and even some Historical Fiction. A pretty decent month of variety.

 

I also started reading samples again. I'm thinking of devoting some time to clearing them again after I finish off my Netgalley obligations. Now if I can just stop requesting! 

 

I have 8 books in progress, mostly Netgalley, and 3 more I haven't started. Hopefully I'll be close to clearing them by the end of December! Some of them are pretty far along so maybe.
