Three Quick Reviews of Howell, Johnson, and FeehanWednesday, December 24, 2008 13:00
I’ve been covered over with large quantities of visiting extended family, baking, cleaning, cooking (can you say Christmas Tamales?¬† I knew you could), and general holiday madness – not to mention trying to find time to meet Sybil to shift some books from her car to my car.¬† As a result I haven’t had time to write full blown reviews of a few books.¬† So here’s a quick run down of what I’ve been reading.¬† I promise I’ll try to get to full reviews of all three books shortly…¬†
Another of those “reformed rake” stories that I love so well.¬† Also a good murder mystery.¬† An historical with more paranormal elements than usually present in her books.¬† Good Hannah Howell, even with all the “dinnae” and “och” to wade thru.¬† Nice romance and a very excellent heroine.
Good story but so-so romance.¬† It took too long to start the actual relationship.¬† This was much more a “fantasy” than a “romance”.¬† Here’s hoping the 8th and final book in the series, The Mage, gives us more meat on the romantic bones.
Oh my goodness.¬† Terrific Ghostwalker novel.¬† Really hot romance, good heroine, hot alpha hero, hot sensuality (had to look at the cover to make sure I wasn’t reading Lora Leigh), excellent romantic suspense elements, excellent action.¬† All around good book.¬† I don’t think you’d even have to read the previous GW books to like it; it stands well on its own. Pacing was excellent and never a dull moment.¬† Loved it.
