Dead Set (Aspen Falls #2) by Melissa Pearl & Anna Cruise
Dead Set (Aspen Falls #2) - Anna Cruise,Melissa Pearl

Dead Set is the second book in the Aspen Falls series, and we reunite with Lucas, Blaine's friend who is no longer on the Police Force that we met in book one. I like Lucas, but he is a slob where paperwork is concerned. His office makes me cringe, so I was thankful when Alaina got stuck in. They come to an agreement that she will help Lucas if he helps her. Her brother has died, and it has been ruled a suicide. Alaina can't accept that, although that may be her guilt speaking. It seems straightforward to begin with, but it does become apparent that not all is as it seemed. And I really did feel for Noah!

It was nice to see the connection between Lucas and Alaina grow as they worked together to find out the mystery behind Noah's death. It is a slow-burn romance, rather than insta-lust, but I think it works here. After all, if someone is working through the grief of a deceased family member, it would be rather strange to fall straight into bed with the P.I. involved.

This book had no editing or grammatical errors that spoilt my reading, and the storyline was easy to follow, even with all the mystery. We have Blaine and Rosie having small cameos in here, so it was nice to see that things are still going well for them. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I hope we will see them in future books so we know how they get along. I would recommend this book.

100 Days - Mimsy Hale

DNF @ 45%

I tried, I really tried to finish this book it has been a week since I started this book and my feelings about it didn't change so I finally decided to DNF it.

To me this road trip was the most boring one I have ever read about, the Mcs Jake and Aiden were dull and silly and I couldn't connect with them at all and to Jake was extremely annoying.

I decided at least I deserve to know the ending after putting up with this book for so long, even though with any other book this will be the perfect HEA for me, in this book I didn't feel it at all.

Overall this wasn't a good book for me and I didn't enjoy reading it.

Dead of Winter (Aspen Falls #1) by Melissa Pearl & Anna Cruise
Dead of Winter (Aspen Falls #1) - Anna Cruise,Melissa Pearl
Dead of Winter is the first book in a new series called Aspen Falls, which is the name of the town Rosie Sweet returns to, even though she swore she never would. Life hasn't turned out how Rosie thought it would, and she seems to have an amazing knack of choosing the wrong men. When this lands her in deep water, she retreats to Aspen Falls, hoping that she will never be found. However, Aspen Falls is suffering a major drugs problem, and the two things just may be connected.
 
This is an easy-to-read romance suspense, with fade-to-black romance. Written with the combined talents of Melissa Pearl and Anna Cruise, I found their writing styles merged and complemented each other. I don't know who wrote what bit, and that doesn't bother me in the slightest. With no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, I enjoyed the pacing of this book. It felt very smooth as one scene transitioned to another. Definitely recommended by me.

The Woman in Cabin 10
The Woman in Cabin 10 - Helen Ruth Elizabeth Ware

I listened to the audio version of this book and really enjoyed the narrator. I was frustrated with the main character because she seemed odd. If you only read the parts she spoke you would think she was mentally disabled. She stammered all the time and did not seem like the professional journalist she was supposed to be. Sure she was having trouble with anxiety but I don´t believe she would have been sent on this trip. She just didn´t seem capable of her job....or speaking. I did enjoy the book though and definitely recommend the audio book.

 

Lo wakes up one night and realizes something isn´t right.  She isn´t sure what woke her up but her bedroom door is shut and she didn´t shut it.  She opens it and sees a man standing there.  He has a mask on and surgical gloves and in his hands was her purse.  She is paralyzed with fear.  The man suddenly slams the door in her face and smashes the lock, trapping her in her room.  Her face was hit by the door when it was slammed and she is dazed and bleeding.  She can´t call for help since her phone was in her purse.  When she finally gets out she finds the intruder is gone and so is her purse with wallet and ID.  He also took her computer which had her banking into on it.  She puts on a brave face but inside she is traumatized.  She calls to tell her employer why she didn´t come in but she said she was fine for the cruise she was set to go on.  Lo is a travel journalist and excited to finally get a chance to prove herself.  The trip was going okay until she woke up suddenly.  She thought she scream and then she heard a big splash like someone someone falling into the water.  She looks out and thinks she sees a hand below the surface.  She called to report it but the chief of security doesn´t believe her... because no one was missing.  The person who was going to be in cabin 10 cancelled at the last minute.  But Lo talked to a woman that was in there and borrowed a mascara from her.  Now she is sure someone killed her and threw her overboard.  How could she get them to believe her?
