THE LAST VICTIM by KAREN ROBARDS
The Last Victim - Karen Robards

I thought this book was okay. The beginning was riveting but then with the grownup Charlie there was too much upset stomach, throwing up, dizzy, weak, tripping over herself. I like my main female characters to not be so delicate. Then after the beginning of the book mentioned this over and over, it seemed to disappear. However, this colored my perception of the main character throughout the book. So, 3 stars because of that.

Willing Victim by Cara McKenna
Willing Victim - Cara McKenna

So I've been busy and haven't pushed any reviews out over here for a while, although I've been trying to remember to type small ones in on GR through my phone.

 

This was a rec from the lovely Whiskey in the Jar because I needed an anxiety distraction, and BOY DID SHE DELIVER.

 

Flynn is pure goodness, y'all. This book is hot. Like, smoking hot. It does appeal to a very specific kink, so if you're not into that you might not like it. However I was so impressed at how well actual CONSENT is worked into this book. Anyone who says consent isn't sexy is a liar. Flynn proves that over and over, and it makes him all the hotter.

 

So yeah, thanks Whiskey! You're the best <3.

KYD Green Round: Victim Card Guess - Team MbD / Lillelara / TA
A Red Death: An Easy Rawlins Mystery - Walter Mosley,Michael Boatman

 

Well, we still have one victim to guess and since it's the victim of the very first murder it can't be Katniss Everdene (the only other theoretically remaining option), since she was expressly excluded in the game's first round.

 

Walter Mosley's Red Death, which I finished a few days ago, is genre crime fiction; in addition, its author's first name begins with one of the letters in WATSON.

KYD Green Round: Victim Card Guess - Team MbD / Lillelara / TA
The Red Queen - Margaret Drabble

 

Lydia Bennet can't possibly die too many literary deaths, so I kind of hope she's a victim in our round as well.  (Mean streak -- me?)

 

Margaret Drabble's The Red Queen contains an extremely annoying POV character in its second part -- who also happens to do more than her fair share of stupid things -- in addition to which, the author's last name begins with one of the letters in "Lydia".

KYD Green Round: Victim Card Guess - Team MbD / Lillelara / TA
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe - Hugh Fraser,Agatha Christie

 

Since Agatha Christie has recently been observed visiting Scotland Yard (and we know she's not the suspect), I think it just might be possible she's been asked to identify one of the victims as Mrs. Oliver.  Of course, the identification might have come out as a negative, but then again ... it might not. 

 

So I'm going with this as a victim guess, with Ms. Christie's own One, Two, Buckle My Shoe, which I just finished listening to, and which happily fulfills all three tasks of this particular card.
