Treacherous Beauties by Cheryl B. Dale
Treacherous Beauties: Featuring Major TV Movie Stars - Cheryl Emerson

Annabelle's dead brother haunts her dreams, pleading with her to help him, and the only way she knows how, is to go to where Alan died and try to find his killer...


The mystery was intriguing, the slightly paranormal angle satisfying without descending into the bizarre, the suspense intense...It would've made for a pretty awesome suspense/thriller if it weren't for:

  1. the premise itself—the heroine goes to the town where her brother was murdered determined to find his killer; she's not law enforcement, she's not a detective, she's just a widow posing as an accountant
  2. and the idiotic heroine—read above and add the fact every single decision she makes when she's there proves just what a naïve idiot she really is (you can't say you love someone while lying to them and believing them a murderer; you can't take the word of the only woman the hero dislikes as judge of his character while having proof of his amiability in his interactions with pretty much everybody else in town).


The fact it was written in the first person POV of the heroine didn't help matters at all, merely compounding her bad traits.

COYER Summer 2017 Wrap Up
A Lady for Lord Randall (Brides of Waterloo) - Sarah Mallory
A Mistress for Major Bartlett - Annie Burrows
The Bull Rider's Homecoming (Blue Thorn Ranch) - Allie Pleiter
Mission of Hope (Love Inspired Historical) - Allie Pleiter
Homefront Hero - Allie Pleiter
The Doctor's Undoing (Love Inspired Historical) - Allie Pleiter
Persepolis I & II - Marjane Satrapi
Falling for the Enemy - Naomi Rawlings

 

I am cutting COYER short to make room for Halloween Bingo. Between IRL obligations and running this beehive, my reading time is shorter than it was in the beginning of summer. So here is my wrap up post.

 

I chose the reading list option for this challenge, which helped a lot because I didn't spend so much time choosing which book to read next - it was already done for me. I tried to pick books that were languishing on the TBR for a long time. I only read 2 books not on my list.

 

When it came to the quality of what I read, there are some highlights: book one and two of the Brides of Waterloo trilogy, all of Allie Pleiter's books, Falling for the Enemy, and The Complete Persepolis. Some lowlights include the Midnight Breed novella, Butterfly Swords, and a few books I received at RT that failed to impress.

 

I completed a trilogy in the first read-a-thon of the challenge (Brides of Waterloo). I got ahead of a few series as well. The first two read-a-thons went well, the last one I tanked hard. I also did BL-opoly for a little while and did two outside read-a-thons (#24in48 and BoB Cycle 20). I also got a few more prompts from the Pop Sugar challenge filled.

 

For the most part, I kept up on reviews and participated in the FB group most days. The Instagram challenge went well for the first 18 days, then I completely lost the will to keep going - this is still MUCH more than I usually do, so I am happy. I won during one of the Twitter chat parties, so I just have to pick out my prize.

 

Overall, I am happy with my work in this challenge and look forward to the winter edition. For the winter edition: sign ups start November 18th, challenge starts December 18th (not as long as the summer one). The title of the winter edition is Winter Switch, and there is hints at having another list option and new rules to play by. Stay tuned.

 

Stats:

45 books total on the list (30 original and 15 additions)

37 books read

     .5 star - 2 books

Romancing the Wallflower (Crimson, Colorado) by Michelle Major
Romancing the Wallflower (Crimson, Colorado) - Michelle Major

 

She taught him how to trust. He showed her the meaning of true love. David and Erin did not have an easy romance, but the cloudy days made the sunny times so much more profound. Romancing the Wallflower is the best of Michelle Major. A journey of love, a story of hope and a road map to understanding. The attraction is a combination of subtle and intense. Romance sneaks up on your heart and after tightly taking hold, refuses to turn it loose.

Review: Chaucer's Major Tales by Michael Hoy and Michael Stevens
Chaucer's Major Tales - Michael Hoy

This book justified my decision to major in history and not English or literature. Literature criticisms and analysis bore me to tears. I read deeply the introduction, the section on the prologue to Canterbury Tales, and the conclusion. I skimmed a lot of the middle book, just trying to pick up on the major theme(s) of each of the featured tales. The two authors really dig Chaucer and praised him often. I had a hard time reading the English of the medieval world, so I just guessed at what the words were when lines from the Canterbury Tales were quoted. Michael Hoy's work (chapters are written by individuals, this was not a group effort) was much more accessible to me than Stevens; it seems Stevens was trying to write for a Masters or PhD level essay and not the lay person.

 

I basically picked this up to fill a Pop Sugar prompt and it did its job but did not convince me to read the full work.
