Apples Should Be Red
Apples Should Be Red - Penny Watson I thought this was a fun, short, sweet, sexy read. I could not get on board with Tom's voice and POV in the beginning, but it settled by the end. He was gruff - and sometimes it was just plain crude-and really pulled me out of the story. However, he was a great hero overall, and someone that came across as genuine in the end. I did struggle with his voice in other way-that it didn't feel authentic. But 2/3 through that irritation vanished. And he was forward and sweet and had some seriously swoony moves.

It was really refreshing and sweet to read about an older couple, though i wish their prior spouses weren't so demonized. Perfect Thanksgiving bridge between buddy reads. Thanks Gaufre!

Reading progress update: I've read 29%.
Fangs - A.E. Howe

Apologies for the multiple authors cited for this book. BL wouldn't let me add it with just A. E. Howe as the author. This is odd as he has sixteen books to his name.

 

Anyway, this is one of his most recent offerings and, if you're still hungry for some Halloween fun, you might want to take a look.

 

This is a fresh, fast, fun read. Set in the early 1930s, it tells the story of a single woman from Alabama who, to honour her father's dying wish, travels, accompanied only by her black maid, to the Carpathian mountains to scatter her grandfather's ashes in "The Old Country". When she returns, she has a rather unusual companion in tow. One who can't go out in the day.,,

 

This is much more about fun than fear. but it isn't totally light-weight. Showing how dangerous it was for a black woman to travel at that time isn't something I've often found in novels. I'm only a third of the way through but so far, it's making me smile. It's certainly providing much-needed light relief from reading "Z for Zachariah".

 

This is the first book in a series. The second is already in print.

Our Little Lies
Our Little Lies - Sue Watson

Marianne has what others would think of as the perfect life. Beautiful house on the best street in the neighbourhood, three bright children and a handsome and charismatic husband who also happens to be a successful surgeon. Marianne's past has been hard, but Simon makes sure she's looked after with flowers and trips. But he has just said another woman's name in conversation and Marianne knows that something's going on between them. As she starts to learn more about Caroline she doesn't find herself jealous, she finds herself afraid.

I was hooked from page one. The writing was great. The characters were frustrating and drove me up the wall at times but I needed to know what was going on! What are they hiding? What's the truth and what's a lie? I enjoyed this book from cover to cover but it really picks up at the halfway point. The suspense! I couldn't wait to finish it, it was so good. It had me guessing the whole time. I was not disappointed with this one.

Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for an e-copy.
