The Christmas Cookie Chronicles - Carrie
The Christmas Cookie Chronicles: Carrie: A Twilight, Texas Story - Lori Wilde

I looked at the cover photo, read the little blurb, saw it was short and borrowed it. It was okay, but it became like romance novels when it threw in the steamy sex scene. 

 

Carrie lives in Twilight, TX running the yarn shop her sister opened, dreading the coming Christmas season, her mother died on Christmas Eve when a rumor has started that her former high school sweetheart and ex-husband is coming to town to tape about the local legend. The legend states that if you throw a penny into the fountain you and your high school sweetheart will marry and be together forever. It doesn't matter how long it takes, but that it happens. 

 

Just to be clear, I do not like romances. If a book catches my attention, even if it is a romance, I will read it, but I can live without the sex scenes and fantasy love.

Witch Dance
Witch Dance - Lori Crane

Southern Gothic for Halloween Bingo!

 

Margaret and Thomas Speedwell are looking forward to a relaxing vacation with their twin girls Sarah and Emily at the Witch Dance campground near Margaret's home town in Mississippi.  The area of Witch Dance not only carries the story of the witches themselves, areas where the witches danced in circles, where grass no longer grows.  It is also where the people of the Choctaw tribes  settled and buried their people in what are known as the Bynum Mounds.  Sarah and Emily run off to play on the Mounds as soon as the family arrives, however only Emily comes back from the Mound.  Sarah has disappeared without a trace and Emily won't talk.  Margaret is desperate as search efforts and police turn up with nothing.  However, Margaret's childhood friend Rich digs up reports from the past about other children disappearing from the same area.  They are all children who are twins and none of them have returned.  Determined to find her daughter, Margaret will have to accept help from an unlikely and unbelievable source and dig into a story that is centuries old. 

 
An intriguing mystery that combines history and the supernatural for a chilling tale.  Lori Crane weaves together the legend of Witch Dance and the stories of the Chickasaw and Choctaw tribes  in order to concoct a compelling reason for the children to disappear from the Mounds.  I was pulled into Chicksah's wife, Salina's story as she dealt with tragedy and found her way into a life changing coven.  Margaret is a difficult character, she is a doting mother but clearly suffering from postpartum anxiety.  This was a fast paced read where time moved quickly.  The mystery and suspense intensify as Salina and Margaret's stories converge as to how and why Sarah was taken.  Clues are dotted throughout the book, however some of the twists were very surprising to me.  Witch Dance is a shorter read and the a so I felt some details were skipped that could have added a lot more ambiance and suspense to the story.  Overall, a unique thriller combining different aspects of historical myths and modern day sleuthing.

This book was received for free in return for an honest review.

not for me
When Bruce Met Cyn - Lori Foster

Bruce Kelly has spent his life helping people who are down on their luck and helping them get back on track. Cyn Potter is a survivor of a rough childhood and just as rough adulthood. She’s done with men and the one thing they want. Bruce is out to prove to her that he can be trusted and can be an absolute gentleman to prove it. For as opposite as these two are, they just might be perfect for eachother.

I’ve read a number of Lori Foster’s books and enjoyed each of them. The book starts out showing you what Cyn has been through. While I understood the choices she had to make, I just couldn’t get over it enough to enjoy her as a character. Unfortunately it made the book not right for me.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Close Contact
Close Contact (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

Not an uber long review, just short and sweet. 

 

I really enjoyed this one. The plot was actually somewhat developed and there was a good mystery developed throughout it. It wasn't life-changing, but I didn't expect it to be. It was just a fun read with some really fun, steamy scenes. 

 

Final rating: 5 out of 5. God help me, I can't be critical when picturing the biceps on Miles.

Close Contact (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

I love these books. So ridiculous and so fun. They're a great pallet cleanser between horror novels.
