What are you reading?
The next two weeks are full of books I am so excited to read as well as several others I am still reading and enjoying. From Netgalley: I am reading or will be reading 1. She can Kill By one of my favorite author Melinda Leigh Synopsis: Reformed assassin Cristan Rojas just wants to raise his daughter in peace. But after twelve years on the run, he learns that even the quiet little town of Westbury, Pennsylvania, has many hidden dangers. Although he can’t shake the feeling he’s under surveillance, Cristan’s attraction to Sarah Mitchell continues to grow, as do his concerns that his secret past could jeopardize anyone who gets too close to him. Sarah is ready to start her life over with her children, a new job, and a budding romance. Her newfound happiness is threatened when her ex-husband becomes increasingly violent—and she soon learns her ex isn’t the only person stalking her. Cristan fears someone from his past has arrived in town, someone far worse than a jealous ex. Someone who may be responsible for a brutal—and unsolved—murder a dozen years ago. To protect Sarah and his daughter, he must shine a light into the darkest recesses of his nightmarish past. 2. Wither Amy Miles Synopsis:After an epidemic swept across America like a biblical plague, the government leapt into the fray with the release of the MONE vaccine. What was meant to bring salvation to the remaining survivors instead brought damnation. Human mutations began within days of the drug’s release and the Withered Ones were born. People not alive but not entirely dead either. They walked the streets, unblinking and unaware. A zombie, for all intents and purposes, but nothing like anyone anticipated. Growing up on the streets taught Avery how to care for herself, but no amount of self defense classes at the Y could have prepared her for the outbreak of deadly gangs, a corrupt government bent on using her blood for experiments and the depths to which desperate people would go to survive. She soon discovered that it was not the Withered Ones that she needed to fear, but those still human. The ones who knew how to put a gun to her head when they wanted something from her. 3.No Room for Error: A Lexi Carmichael Mystery, Book Seven Julie Moffett Again another Author I love! Synopsis: Trouble follows me, Lexi Carmichael, like a little black cloud. At least according to my boyfriend, Slash: brilliant hacker, national treasure and vault of secrets. Even I have to admit he could be right. After a series of high-profile cases at my cyberintelligence firm, I was looking forward to a simple job. All I had to do was personally deliver a revolutionary microchip to a manufacturing plant in Indonesia. Easy, right? Wrong. Someone else wants the design and is willing to kill to get it. A failed hijacking attempt lands me, my best friend Basia and our boss, Finn, in the middle of the jungle. Our mission is clear: protect the microchip design from the hijackers on our tail…and survive. But how can a geek girl like me survive without access to my beloved technology? I'm about to find out. And this time, there's no room for error. 4.Out of the Shadows Tiffany Snow Synopsis: Ivy Mason is no stranger to trouble—though so far she’s always managed to outrun or outsmart it. Now a nasty man-made virus and an FBI manhunt have her desperate for a cure and on the run for her freedom. Even her romance with British secret agent Devon Clay may have deadly consequences, placing her squarely in the crosshairs of a shadowy international assassin, Vega. Devon is determined to take Vega out, but first he must make sure beautiful Ivy is out of danger. When she escapes FBI custody, the couple rekindles their passion and sets off on a pulse-pounding adventure across the United States and around the globe. En route, Ivy and Devon discover new truths about their nemeses—revelations that will test the limits of their love. In this thrilling conclusion to the Tangled Ivy trilogy, Ivy Mason learns that the path to justice—and love—is more complicated and fraught with danger than she ever could have imagined. I love Indie authors because you can discover such great writers 1. Along Came a Wolf (The Yellow Hoods #1) By Adam Dreece Synopsis: A deadly threat comes to a small mountain town hunting for the first ever steam engine plans. Only a trio of twelve year olds (Tee, Elly and Richy) and a few friends stand in the way, unaware of the legends they would one day become. Before they’d learn of secret societies, cross paths with the Ginger Lady, or see airships rain down fiery destruction, they had to come together as the Yellow Hoods. This seemingly innocent prequel to the darker Pieman Saga (The Yellow Hoods books 2-5) introduces the reader to a world on the verge of a Steampunk revolution (i.e. Emergent Steampunk). Our classic fairy tales are based on their real events and people, including master inventor and loving grandfather, Nikolas Klaus - part Santa Klaus, part Nikola Tesla. A tale of gripping adventure, whimsical humor and fun. Great for kids (9+) and adults alike. 2. Dangerous Games (O’Connor & Kincaid #1) By Tess Diamond Synopsis: A thirteen year-old girl has been taken - and Special Agent Maggie Kincaid is the only one who can get her back. When a Senator’s daughter goes missing, every minute counts. The FBI’s best hostage negotiator, Agent Kincaid, knows what it’s like to be a terrified victim. Kidnapped as a child, those memories haunt her every day - and give her an insight into the evil mind behind this deadly crime. But the Senator’s family has other plans, and have brought in ex-forces security expert Jake O’Connor to oversee negotiations. He’s got secrets of his own, and doesn’t play by the same rule book. With time running out, Maggie and O’Connor will have to overcome their differences to keep this case from ending in tragedy 3.As well as a Christmas Tale from Ritter Ames!! Please be patience with me I have to balance big Kids books with the Cat In The Hat, Fancy Nancy and Magic Tree House. My 9 year old son will start writing reviews as well because he is reading everything from magic Tree house to his sisters to Indian in the cupboard. Now What are you reading??
