November Reading List
Read 'em and weep says I. Aargh! Here's my list and quickie reviews of my November reads.
Pandora's Daughter by Iris Johansen
I've really enjoyed Iris Johansen's Eve Duncan series, even with some unusual psychic talent Pandora's Daughter was a bit too predictable for me.
Nauti Nights by Lora Leigh
This book was fairly sizzling. I know I'll read the third book in this series, but lots of plot points in her straight contemps are becoming repetitious.
You Don't Know Jack by Erin McCarthy
I enjoyed both the McCarthy books I read this month. I think I've learned to stick with her contemporaries and stay away from her Vegas Vampires.
Virgin River by Robin Carr
I tried Rowena, I really tried, but I didn't like Virgin River all that much. It wasn't horrible, but it didn't capture my attention the way it seems to have so many others.
Holy Smokes by Katie MacAlister
An okay addition to the series and as far as I'm concerned tied everything up in a neat little bow. I know some readers are expecting another installment. I think we can put a fork in it.
Bodine's Bounty by Charlene Sands
Western fan though I be, I couldn't get into a western where the heroine wants to be a singer while traveling around, initially on her own, to find her long lost father. If you are going to have an unusual historical premise then you really have to sell it to me and make it believable. I thought the heroine was spoiled and whiney and didn't understand why Bodine would want her to begin with.
An Affair Before Christmas by Eloisa James
Eloisa James wrote a very competent historical. I was very interested in the characters but feel like the story was lacking something. Anybody else read it who can put their finger on it? Was it just me and my mood?
Bedded by Her Lord by Denise Lynn
Holidays are Hell Anthology by Harrison/Sands/Liu/Pettersson
I only read the Liu story Six. Intriguing and interesting as always, even though I didn't read the other stories her unique voice and story are worth the price of the anthology.
Raintree:Sanctuary by Beverly Barton
I got this at the UBS because after buying the first two and being disappointed I didn't want to buy the third installment. However, since the story and the 3 Raintree siblings have stuck in my memory that is saying something. So I finished it.
Mouth to Mouth by Erin McCarthy
I already blogged about this one here.
