Lust, Loathing and a Little Lip Gloss by Kyra Davis

Lust, Loathing and a Little Lip Gloss by Kyra Davis

Finished reading this today - and I loved it!!! I think this series is just getting better - this one had a lot of depth, humor, mystery, and hot romance!

Sophie is trying to buy a new home, and the seller is giving her all sorts of crazy restrictions - but she's getting a great deal, so she tries to work it out. But things of course are not what they seem, and before you know it, there's not just one but 2 dead bodies that Sophie finds!

Highly recommend this series if anyone hasn't started them yet!

Too Far Behind

I've been awful about keeping up with this blog! Part of the problem is that I really haven't read anything lately that I'm just so enthralled with that I have to talk about it.

Right now, I'm reading:

Lust, Loathing and a Little Lip Gloss by Kyra Davis

So far, so good, and hopefully I'll finish it soon and write a review!

I've gotten lots of ARCs to review, and will hopefully be getting to those soon.

In the meantime, here are a few of my favorites so far this year:

Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum - fantastic!!!

Marked (House of Night, Book 1) by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast - great start to a good series - I've also read the 2nd one in this series, and have the 3rd one waiting...

and in getting ready for the movie, if you are one of the very few left who hasn't read Harry Potter - start the series now! Don't worry about it being considered "young adult" - this is an amazing series and well-worth the read.

And now, I have the choice of either reading or putting together an Ikea bookshelf - I think I'm going to read :)

In the Dark by Brian Freeman

In the Dark by Brian Freeman

What a great book! This is the 4th book in the Jonathan Stride series, and it's awesome.

Jonathan is pulled into an investigation of his late wife's sister's murder when her friend comes to town with plans to write a book about the murder that took place in 1977.

Mr. Freeman does a fantastic job tying the past to the present, and even bringing in a current-day investigation that ties into the murder.

Highly recommend!!

A Night at the Operation (A Double Feature Mystery) by Jeffrey Cohen

A Night at the Operation (A Double Feature Mystery) by Jeffrey Cohen

From the back cover: Most men wouldn't be terribly upset if their ex-wives suddenly vanished. But then, most men aren't Elliot Freed.

Elliot's ex-wife, Sharon, has disappeared and Elliot of course makes finding her his top priority. This starts a chain of events that leads to murder, disappearing corpses, burglary, blackmail, and all sorts of other fun things!

This is the 3rd book in the series, and I think the best one yet. Like the first two books, it includes lots of great classic movie trivia and hysterical one-liners. But there's also some very touching scenes, as well. Add to that a great mystery and you have a book that is well worth the read.
