I bought the first in this series because I have running out of series books to read! Since becoming a Stay at Home Mom I look for quick reads to occupy nap times and before bed times. I have read both the January and February additions in this series and can not wait for the next installment. I like how Samantha has had a bad past relationship but is not self-loather like so many women in romance novels. The plotlines are believable and Samantha is not the typical never listen to reason hard-headed heroine, but she still got a mind of her own- she is someone I imagine I would like in real life. I can't wait to see how the relationship between Samantha and Ben plays out!

Just a note- I am not one of those reviewers/readers that focuses too much on the grammar or formatting of the Kindle. I actually haven't had any difficulty with my formatting. Also, I can easily believe almost any story line and am a hopeless romantic. I rely a lot on peoples reviews to let me know if I am going to enjoy a book or not and hope I have been a help to you

I absolutely love this new series. Sam is a hilarious, laugh-out-loud character. Who couldn't love a character who thinks she's talking to herself in her head, but is actually talking out loud. So funny. The others are well-developed and I like the complexity of issues they are dealing with.

So happy to see the sequel to my favorite summer read!! I'm about halfway in and it promises to be as good as January Kills me. Can't wait to finish reading it.

I'm really enjoying this series. Samantha Rialto is a wonderful character- fully flawed and totally relate-able. Her friends and family are entertaining as well- who doesn't want a BFF with special ops training? Or a leading man who looks like Batman with naughty little boy sensibilities? Plus I'm in love with the (implied, perhaps) promise of at least 12 books in the series. While part of my brain screams that most people (even most private detectives) don't face life or death situations month-to-month, the other part of my brain calmly says: "It's fiction. Get over it." The punctuation is a little goofy- apostrophes and commas where they don't need to be; but while I notice it I don't let it detract from my enjoyment of the action. Keep up the good work- I'm looking forward to March. I'll keep an eye out for the release date- Ms. Katy if you had an email announcement list that would be FABULOUS!

This writer is really coming along. It is difficult, in this genre of literature, to manage to do anything interesting or different, and so I do not think Ms. Katy tried. She went to write a good, enjoyable, action packed mystery novel. She succeeded, in my opinion. And, in doing so, she managed to be just different enough that I think she will attract quite a following. I will not say it is a brilliant job, but it is getting there. I like her main characters, though I wish not every heroine had an achilles heel with a Y chromosome attached.

I am very interested to see how March will turn out. Keep on, Ms. Katy!

Have read both books in the series, can't wait for the next one. I had to buy the second one because I couldn't wait. to find out what happens next. Now, just WHEN is the next one coming out? Hope it is soon. I can't wait to see if Ben and Sam get back together, what is Maxie going to be doing next, how the room mate situation will go, and much more. I do hope so.

A Bomb in February is the second Samantha Rialto mystery in the new series by Evan Katy. Samantha, barely recovered after the injuries sustained in the first book, is again at risk when her neighbor's house is incinerated and her own is damaged. Working with her old mentor, Turnbuckle, and her possible boyfriend, Ben, her best friend forever Maxie, and other characters from the first story, Samantha again experiences injury, kidnapping, explosions and confusion.

Will Ben, her former husband's former partner, be able to let go of his guilt for not realizing the abuse she sustained in her marriage? Will her ex-husband continue to pursue her forgiveness? Will her father, the retired chief of police, and her mother, distraught at her daughter's choice of companions and part time employment, offer her shelter without overruling her choices? And with all of this happening, will she be able to resume her career as a middle school music teacher, restoring the school's focus on learning beyond academics?

This book held my attention into the wee hours of the night. It is a mystery with many layers, driven by characters whose emotions are as complex as a Celtic knot. Evan Katy has created Samantha Rialto as a character who will last through many novels ahead, and I'm on board to read each one as it arrives.

I just finished A Bomb in February and enjoyed every second of it. I could bearly put it down. This story takes place just a few weeks after January Kills Me concludes. While the characters are still reeling and recovering from the violence and chaos of January they are thrust into a whole new tornado of deceit, murder, and secrets.

Once again I have to admire the realistic development of the characters. Samantha is still scarred physically and emotionally from the horrors inflicted by Susie Linn and her mother yet she has to pull herself up by her boot straps when Maxie's tragedy explodes. I appreciate that Katy didn't give all her characters quick fixes and chose to show them recover and overcome their self doubts and fears. They are all stronger for this.

Sam and Ben's relationship is progressing in a logical, yet sweetly sexy, manner especially when they breakdown and are honest with each other. They need to sneak off on their own for a quiet vacation so they can work through their issues without a phone call or radio alert interrupting them. I want to see their slow sizzle hit full flame.

I liked that we met Sam's parents, Maxie's family, and at the end Ben's sister. I'm sure they will all add to the next installment Violet March. I can't wait.
