After stepping away from blogging on a schedule for the past two weeks, I'm ready to get back into the swing of things and get back to posting again. But before I can do that I have to post about the final books that I read in 2012. These will be short and sweet.....as usual!
When Snow Falls (Whiskey Creek #2) by Brenda Novak
Super short synopsis: Family secret, waiting for Mr. Right, and discovering love.
Reason for reading it: Set during the holidays and the super-cute cover!
~This was my first Brenda Novak book and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. I liked getting to know the two main characters and found myself falling a bit in love with the "bad boy" Dylan Amos. Liked it enough to read the first book in the series, When Lightning Strikes.
Rapture in Death (In Death #4) audio version by JD Robb
Super short synopsis: Someone is controlling people's mind with virtual reality games and making them committ suicide with a smile on their face!
Reason for reading it: I am totally addicted to this series and quite frankly, I adore Eve. I love her bad-ass attitude and how she never gives up until she has the right answer. Roarke is still as hot as ever and they are certainly getting their marriage off to a smokin' start! The narrator, Susan Ericksen, absolutely makes this so enjoyable!!
Twelve Days of Christmas by Trisha Ashley
Super short synopsis: Holly's husband died before Christmas so now she does everything in her power not to be happy nor to celebrate Christmas. But house sitting in a manor house on the Lancashire Moors during the Twelve Days of Christmas will bring changes to her life.
Source: Purchased .99 cents from amazon.com
Reason for reading it: I was still in the mood for reading fluffy chick romance and found this book that took place in England. Sounded perfect and it was! I loved this story and the characters. Made me want to book a ticket to their little village and hopefully be asked to stay!! I will be reading more from this author!
Every Secret Thing (Kate Murray #1) by Susanna Kearsley
Super short synopsis: Journalist Kate is unwittingly embroiled in a murder that happened during WWII and has to run for her life in order to bring the aging murderer to justice.
Source: Purchased from amazon.com earlier this year
Reason for reading it: I absolutely LOVE everything that Kearsley writes, so when this was available on my Kindle I bought it immediately. I loved Kate and thought the whole story was brilliant. I always enjoy how Kearsley weaves the past and the present quite seamlessly and makes the reader believe it all. I hope she continues on with this series.
A Fatal Grace (Three Pines #2) by Louise Penny
Super short synopsis: Someone electrocuted the hated CC de Poiters in the middle of a frozen lake, in front of the entire village. Yet no one saw anything.....
Source: Public Library
Reason for reading it: After reading A Still Life, I knew that I would continue on with this series and can I just say that I made the right decision? There wasn't one thing that I didn't love about this book. Chief Inspector Gamache is becoming a favorite character of mine and I love Three Pines with its eclectic cast of townspeople. Fantastic way to spend a cold winter day.....
