Troublemaker: A Novel - Linda Howard

This is a story about a golden Retriever named Tricks and the humans she dotes upon :)

Some of you _ who have read this, will know what I'm talking about _ will probably laugh, and call me exaggerated ;)

Look I love dogs and cats: that's why I sometimes find myself without knowing what to do with my life, when I think of all the animals that I've taken care, and the ones that I still have in my life. Up until two weeks ago I used to feed thirteen cats, now they're only twelve, and once again I feel as if part of my heart was ripped.

Then there's the blame and guilt, because I can't take them to top notch vets, which leaves me always wondering if they would be alive if I had. My head goes into overdrive, and its only due to the meds that I take, that I keep going.

People keep abandoning cats outside my house, and if I don't take them, most of them die on the street.

Why I am telling this?

Because reading is an escape from reality, and sometimes I don't want to read books that have animals in them ( most of the times they end up dead or being hurt!).

From the beginning I could see that this was going to be a story about a dog... maybe because the author wouldn't shut up about all of Tricks wonderful nature...

I got to the middle of the story and I got kind of tired of it. Even loving dogs.

But then saturday, 19 th happened, and I lost my cat Fiona, and somehow reading about Tricks helped me.

I started questioning me: can't you see yourself in Bo in the way she mostly prefers her dog to the rest of the world?

Aren't I a slave of my diva cats, the way she is about Tricks?

I am. And I hope I will be for the longest time ever.

The rest of the story, the developing romance was okay, I guess. Kind of hard to evaluate a romance when I mostly feel numb.

As for the thriller part I also felt that it could have been more developed.

Apocalyptica - Part Four (Ran) by Joshua Guess
Apocalyptica - Part Four (Ran) - Joshua Guess

Apocalyptica - Part Four (Ran) by Joshua Guess is the fourth and final installment of a serialized novel. As a whole, it was brilliant!

 

There are not only zombies but cannibalistic Reavers who are relentless killing machines. Can Ran deal with the extra people now living at her complex? Can she survive betrayal? What an enjoyable story!

 

This author is a highly skilled writer that keeps the action moving, makes the characters believable and tells a great story. I gave this five stars even with the need for some editing for typos.

 

I have added his other books to my wishlist.

Apocalyptica - Part Three (Ran) by Joshua Guess is the third installment of a serialized novel.

 

The author has a skill with words that kept me turning the pages. It is an intriguing story about Ran Lawson. There are frightening events where she is kidnapped by other survivors. Her preparation skills have paid off.

 

I gave it four stars only because of the need to edit for typos. That did not reflect on the writer's skill.

Apocalyptica - Part Two (Ran) by Joshua Guess is the second installment of a serialized novel. The author is a wordsmith. This kept my attention from start to finish.

 

It is an intriguing story about Ran Lawson. She is a hardy survivor. There are frightening shades of gray in this end of the world as we knew it story.

 

I gave it four stars only because of the need to edit for typos. That did not reflect on the writer's skill.
