5.0 out of 5 stars Gasping for Air, December 9, 2007
I stumbled across the first book in the Weather Warden series by accident. I plowed through the first 4 in 2 days. Luckily, the wait wasn't long for #5. The wait for "Thin Air" seemed like eons. I read it the first day it came out and wanted more, so I read the series over from the beginning. This is a tightly written group of novels. Each book builds on the one before it, so it is best to read them in order.

Thin air started where Firestorm left off. When Joanne wakes up, she is alone, freezing and has no memory. Lewis comes to her aid, but she doesn't remember him and has no idea if she should trust him. All of the tragedies she experienced in the previous book are forgotten. Without giving any spoilers, Jo ends up fighting everyone for her life. People she trusted no longer trust her.

If you like Kim Harrison, early LKH and Kelly Armstrong, you should enjoy this series. Rachel Caine's Weather Warden series is on my 'buy and read the day it comes out' list.

5.0 out of 5 stars hot, Hot, HOT, August 27, 2003
This review is from: The Heartbreaker (Hardcover)
The Heartbreaker by Carly Phillips was absolutely fabulous, and my heart was broken when I realized I finished my last book about the gorgeous Chandler brothers. :( We learned in The Bachelor that Raina Chandler was determined to see her three sons happily married, and she was willing to do whatever it takes to make them take the leap and start providing her with grandchildren. She decided the best way to accomplish her goals was to pretend to have a serious heart problem. Whether it was her planning or fate that brought the couples together, we�ll never know���.

When Raina�s husband died, Chase Chandler became the �man of the house�, so he gave up all of his dreams to make sure his younger brothers could follow their hearts. Now that his mother and brothers are happy, he decides that it is finally his turn. Shortly after making this decision, he meets Sloan and is smitten by her. Since Sloane was on a mission to find out the truth about her father, the last thing she wanted was to fall in love. The path to happiness isn�t always where we think it should be. Chase certainly didn�t want to give up his freedom and Sloane didn't want a man running away from the thoughts of a family......... but did I mention the smitten part?

This is my favorite book in the Chandler series. It wasn�t as funny as the first two books, but it was a lot more suspenseful. Carly Phillips was able to blend humor, suspense, romance and enough steam to fog up the windows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Mystery, August 17, 2003
Mean Woman Blues by Julie Smith is everything you hope to find in a suspenseful mystery - fluid prose, characters you love, and villains you love to hate. Not only does she bring people to life, but also she somehow captures the essence of New Orleans. It is as if the city is a character in the book. Several storylines weave in and out as the tale unfolds, and Smith was able to tie them all together to create a terrific mystery novel.

Some bad guys are more difficult to capture than others. Former evangelical preacher, Errol Jacomine, is back with a new face, voice and style, but underneath the pretty new façade the old evils lurks. Skip is determined to bring this man to justice, and Jacomine is determined to kill his enemy any way he can. The secondary story about the theft of cemetery art added to the overall appeal of the novel and made me long to visit New Orleans again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Tell!, August 17, 2003
This review is from: Don't Tell (Mass Market Paperback)
Mary Grace Winters was nearly killed by her husband more than once. Since he was cop, the only way out was to disappear and start a new life with her son far away from North Carolina. With new names and a new look, they lived in relative safety in Chicago for several years, but when the car she ditched is found, her husband realizes she isn't dead YET.

Max Hunter is her new boss, and he is YUMMY! It was love/lust at first sight for him and Caroline (formerly Mary Grace). Although the sparks are flying everywhere, both have many issues they need to resolve before they can think of a future together. Also, her son is terrified his mother will end up in another abusive relationship.

I like romantic suspense/thriller, and this is one of the best I've read. The pace was relentless, and once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. Who needs sleep, right? :) This novel is violent, sexy, sweet, and haunting. If you like Lisa Gardner or Tami Hoag, you will love this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tall, Dark, and Yummy, August 17, 2003
Feng Shui decorator, Rachel Fortier, decides to ditch her fiancé and head to the Louisiana Bayou to meet her grandmother. She was thinking Tara and found something closer to the Beverly Hillbillies. As soon as she steps out the car, she meets Remy LeDeux. Both of them feel like they've been struck by lightning.

The first 10 pages were amusing, and the rest of the book was downright laugh out loud funny. Imagine putting Grandma Mazur in the Bayou with a wad of tobacco in her mouth and you'll get the idea. The SHEWIE level was off the scale. You'll need to splash ice water on yourself between giggle fits. The novel has everything from drug runners, to big hair to keep you interested from beginning to end.
If you like Jennifer Crusie, Carly Phillips and Janet Evanovich, you should love this book.

If you like Crusie, Phillips and Evanovich, you should love this book. It is rather like cloning those three with Jessica Speart.

If you are in the mood for some chuckles and a terrific mystery, be sure and pick up a copy of You've Got Murder. The protagonist is unique and charming. Since I adore the Meg series, I expected a LOT for this book. It was even better than I imagined. Turing is now near the top of my favorite charcter list.:)

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Thriller, January 28, 2003
This review is from: Kisscut: A Novel (Hardcover)
Karin Slaughter's second effort is even better than the first. Kisscut isn't an easy book to read and not one I'd recommend to my cozy reading friends, but is is more than worth the effort to us thriller fans. When I looked up from the pages, I found I'd read the entire book while barely breathing, and I'm fairly sure the book cover has the imprints of my finger nails. Great thriller!
