Wicked Weaves
Wicked Weaves - Jim Lavene,Joyce Lavene

Being set at a renaissance fair, this set itself apart from a lot of the other mysteries. Jessie being the name of the main character and I was all set! (Jessie is my youngest sister's name). 
This ended up being disappointing. I really didn't like Jessie and found her to be judgmental and immature. She was "thirty-something" (if my memory is right, she is 32) and an assistant professor, but acted much younger. I couldn't imagine her teaching! The first part of the book was the worst; what came out of her mouth wasn't very thought out or empathetic. It did get better (or I got used to it) as the book went on. This quote sums it up nicely: "I was taking some serious grief over this whole thing, and I wasn't sure why. I'd done all I could to help Mary. It seemed to me she could be a little grateful."
The main male character had an eye-rolling name. Chase Manhattan. "My parents were into banking. You know how it is." Yeah, actually I don't and don't want to. The romance in this was just okay. Again, for people in their thirties I expected more assertiveness. 
I doubt I will read this rest.

Something Wicked This Way Comes - Ray Bradbury for Creepy Carnivals
Something Wicked This Way Comes - Ray Bradbury

The prologue begins with an opening line reminiscent of A Christmas Carol: "First of all, it was October, a rare time for boys."

 

Forty or so years ago I read this and identified with the boys, of course I did. This time I couldn't. So it was just a bunch of wordplay and monologuing and there was no horror to it anywhere, just an ad for an imaginary place I wouldn't be welcome. He did say some nice things about libraries, though, so I'm giving it a couple of stars.

The Importance of Being Wicked By Victoria Alexander $1.99
The Importance of Being Wicked - Victoria Alexander

For Winfield Elliott, Viscount Stillwell, finding a prospective bride always seemed easy. Perhaps too easy. With three broken engagements to his name, Win is the subject of endless gossip. Yet his current mission is quite upright: to hire a company to repair his family’s fire-damaged country house. Nothing disreputable in that—until the firm’s representative turns out to be a very desirable widow.
 
Lady Miranda Garrett expected a man of Win’s reputation to be flirtatious and devilishly charming. But the awkward truth is that it’s she who finds him thoroughly irresistible. While Miranda resides at Millworth Manor to oversee the work, Win occupies every waking hour of her day, her dreams at night, and soon, her bed.
 
And for the first time, the wicked Win is falling in love too. And what begins as a scandalous proposition may become a very different proposal of the heart.

Wicked Whiskey Love (The Whiskeys #4) by Melissa Foster
Wicked Whiskey Love - Melissa Foster

 

 

I don't tear up often, but Wicked Whiskey Love made a crier out of me. Foster showed life at it's ugliest and triumph at it's most inspiring. Sarah is not just a victim, she's a survivor. She found the courage to fight for herself and make a better world for the people she loved most. They say people enter your life at the time you need them most. Bones was a catalyst for her inner heroine breaking free. I enjoy reading stories that mean something. The tale of Bones and Sarah is made all the more powerful because it's realistic, inspiring and gripping.
