REVIEW: Hot and Cold

REVIEW: Hot and Cold

This was my first introduction to both Mikey Lee and Amy Shaw, however both have been on my TBR for a long time. I try not to pick up books in the middle of a series. Since this was a crossover I figured why not. I might not have the same affinity as someone who has read these characters before, but why not give it a try. 

I don’t really get into crime dramas all that much. I find they are either too complicated to understand, or too transparent you know what’s coming a mile away. I really enjoyed this story. Even though I’m not a weapons expert I was able to follow and understand what was going on. I didn’t feel like I was in over my head even though the subject was very specialized. I have to admin I did do a little Googling and watched a few YouTube videos. At the same time, I didn’t feel like I knew what was going to happen from the beginning. 

I would say my introduction to Mikey Lee and Amy Shaw was successful. Hot and Cold is a sweet romance and an intreaguing mystery. It really has something for everyone.

REVEIW: Butterfly Code

Read a review of Sue Wyshynski's Butterfly Code

I thoroughly enjoyed the Butterfly Code. This book has a little bit of everything, a little sci-fi, a little mystery,  a little romance, a little coming of age. I’m a sucker for a good story. There is nothing like a little genre switch to keep things fresh. 

There were a few places in the book, especially in the beginning, where the descriptions were a little long. But, I can see how important it is to be descriptive in a story like this.

REVIEW: He Wants Me

Read a review for Julia Swift's He Wants Me.

He Wants Me is a murder mystery and I am so happy that I was able to read the first four books right away. If I had been drip fed this story I would have gone out of my mind. Swift’s writing is so engrossing, I couldn’t put the books down. I had to keep going, I had to find out what was going to happen next. This book definitely kept me up past my bedtime!

REVIEW: All Hallows Eve

REVIEW: All Hallows Eve

I am a scared cat! I don’t watch scary movies and I don’t go to haunted houses. But, I figured to give this book a try with Halloween around the corner. Pleasantly, I was quickly engrossed in this murder mystery. This story will whisk you away to Salem to explore the dynamics of nontraditional religions and even back in time to the infamous witch trials, all while trying to learn who done it.

This is the perfect Halloween read.
