Review:

"Repent at Leisure" by Stevie Turner

My Thoughts....

This read I must say left me on the edge of my seat with this psychological thriller read. There were so many of twist and turns the reader simply may not be able figure it out until the very end. I am simply not sure who I felt more sorrier for...Paul or Anita....definitely there was some help needed. What happens as someone comes up dead? What happens after Paul and Anita are married? Will she start regretting rushing into this marriage due to Paul's strange behavior shifts? Will he seek help? What will happen after Paul gets in touch with his brother Terry who lived in Australia? What secrets will come out from that visit to Australia? After they return back home what will happen next
between this couple. This is where I will stop and say you will have to pick up "Repent at Leisure" to get all of these questions answered and so much more. I will say I was left shaking my head and saying I didn't see that one coming. However, this author is noted for giving the reader surprises and that was one surprised ending for me.

Are You on the Fringe of Glory?
The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You - Jessica N. Turner

Hello, ladies and gentlemen! Tell me, honestly, how do you feel your days go? Because when I was little, I had the idea that being a grown woman would be like this:

Uhhh...how do I put this lightly? Being a grown woman is hard. Between two part-time jobs, part-time graduate studies, nurturing a long-distance relationship, trying (and failing) to help my mother around the house, attempting to spend time with four siblings, and telling myself that this week will be the week I start growing my spiritual life, being a grown woman looks more like this:

Yeah. Luckily for Anna, for me, and for all you other ladies who don't have Rapunzel's pep, there's a book. The Fringe Hours is all about making time for yourself...so that you can be more like Rapunzel and less like Anna.

 

Excuse me??! Did I not just tell you about the jobs and the relationships and the siblings and the faith and the--

 

Yes. I did.

Eternal Pleasure
By Nina Bangs: Eternal Pleasure (Gods of the Night, Book 1) (Leisure Paranormal Romance) - -Leisure Books-
Dinosaurs, who the hell would have expected this to be a decent read? Not me, but I was pretty entertained, mainly because I like the world in which this is set.

I like that this actually gives insight into the bad guys world too, reminds of how Ward jumps between the Brotherhood part of the story and the Omega part of the story. The writing was pretty solid and the story didn't suffer from many, or any that I can remember, blah moments where the story just becomes filler. Lots of action going on, lots of romance scenes. The only thing that was a bit of a downer was that I didn't have much like for the main characters, not they are badly written, I just didn't much like them.

Great resource book

Always (Leisure historical romance)
Always (Leisure historical romance) - Lynsay Sands I was asked to review this book and was thrilled at the time because I didn't know that this was a re-print. Most of Lynsay Sands books are fresh and humorous, but with this book, except for a few passages, this book was not fresh or humorous. Perhaps at the time it was written it was, but I don't feel that this book withstood the test of time.

The characters are one-dimensional and clich├ęd. Bossy, male (yes I'm sure this was historically accurate, but that was then, the author is writing for the 'now') overly jealous male. Heroine stolen (almost) out of a nunnery getting ready to take her vows in the next couple of days---this leads to a very trite heroine. Yes there is the inevitable happily ever after, it is a romance after all, but for the life of me I cannot see exactly how they got there.

This book did start out with some funny moments and there were some more sprinkled throughout, but not enough to hold my attention.
