Review: Devour (Unbreakable Bonds #4) by Rinda Elliott and Jocelynn Drake
Devour (Unbreakable Bonds Series Book 4) - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

 

 

 

Loved.Loved this book. Great last installment of this series.

Besides Snow and Jude, Ian and Hollis are my favorite couple.
Finally we get Ian's full story. It made me love him even more.

I really loved all the dynamics of these men. They are such an amazing family. I'll sure be reading this series again.

Im glad we getting Snow & Jude's novella and also Ian & Hollis's cause I'm not ready to say goodbye to these men...

Nine years ago, he’d been caught in a nightmare and rescued by a few men who’d seen something in him that he might never understand. They’d taken him away, given him a home, and helped him create a new life. A fantastic new life. Together, the four of them had made a family, and now there were four more.

Against the Paw (Paw Enforcement, #4)
Against the Paw - Diane Kelly

I generally like this series; I think the story lines are better than average and the characters are people you can get behind.

 

Against the Paw is probably the least cozy of the 4 I've read, venturing into the slightly darker territory of voyeurism.  As a police officer, Megan has the agency to investigate, and she does so more or less realistically (the last scene dings credibility a bit).

 

I still find the dog POV chapters weird, but they are super short so it's easy to over look it. It's obvious Kelly has done her research; unfortunately I found it a little too obvious.  There's a bit of over-explaining done about the law and about the honour of being a police officer and it makes the narrative lean towards the clunky.

 

Generally though, it was a good read and I'll happily read the next one.

Benny Uncovers a Mystery
Benny Uncovers a Mystery - Gertrude Chandler Warner,David Cunningham

If I were a fan when Warner was first publishing the series I think I would have been disappointed with this ending. The mystery is OK, some parts are pretty easy to guess, but some of the mystery is pretty subtle. But there's no resolution with the characters. It's just like any other Boxcar Children book. I guess that made it easy to continue the series.

 

I read a mix of the series (original and continuation) as a kid, and I remember liking them. I'm trying to get the nine-year-old to read some, but she's not that interested (even though I keep telling her they're mysteries and she likes mysteries). Oh well.

Bus Station Mystery
Bus Station Mystery - Gertrude Chandler Warner,David Cunningham

The mystery was so obvious to me that I kept wondering why everyone was confused for ~90% of the book. I remember Benny Uncovers a Mystery (#19) being a lot more mysterious when I was a kid though, so the intended audience of the Boxcar Children novels might enjoy this one.

Beastly Bones: A Jackaby Novel - William Ritter

 

 

 

 

Back to New Fiddleham, New England with Abigail Rook and her eccentric employer, R.F. Jackaby, supernatural investigator. From shape shifters disguised as kitten-fish to a dig for dinosaurs and a great of suspicious deaths, this book has a lot going on. But, in the end, it all ties together.

 

I like Abigail, she is smart and strong and also a bit unsure of herself. Jackaby is a bit crazy, but still a good-hearted person. I listened to the audio of this book and enjoyed the narrator's voice. I noticed things about the writing that didn't stand out as much when I read the first book. Abigail speaks in alliteration often... very often. It is sort of funny, for instance, at one point she talks about another character having a "propensity for peddling pilfered goods." Once I noticed this, it made me smile every time she did it.

 

This is a fun series, and I will probably read the next one... eventually. :)
