The Stolen Hours | Allen Eskens

Pickpick

Fantastic!! I binge read Esken's work a while back and was stoked to read this. Part of the Joe Talbert series (aka The Life We Bury) but focuses exclusively on Lila and her budding career in the prosecutor's office. BOY did I inhale it. It's less of a whodunnit (because that's made pretty clear from the start) and more of a "can we prove it to keep this psycho off the streets" and solve a traumatic mystery from Lila's past while we're at it ??

I last read this novel many years ago. Having reread it now, I realised I had forgotten that it‘s littered with blasphemous expletives that mar a thrilling story. Were it not for that, it would have been a thoroughly enjoyable read.

#EvilNeverDies #TRRagan #BuddyReads #BookSpinBingo

This is the last book in the Lizzy Gardner series. She believes in law and order and is tired of too many vicious predators gaming the system and walking free. Lizzy is tracking down a list of Sacramento‘s worst offenders and dealing out the payback they deserve. The Sacramento Strangler is a ritualistic serial killer and is dropping corpses and cryptic clues at a shocking rate.

EadieB He‘s next on Lizzy's list. Even though this series is a bit gritty, I enjoyed the characters and the humor throughout. It's best to start with book 1 if you want to thoroughly enjoy the characters and storyline. I was happy that the series ended on a good note for Lizzy. 11h

The second Sam Bourne book I have chosen for #BeginsWith. I enjoy his writing style and the Thebes of his books. This #One is the second book in the Maggie Costello series and really enjoyed it. A good political thriller.

Good as Dead | Susan Walter

The story - told they several points of view and timelines - keeps you strung along wondering what really happened, how, why, and what now. A heavy topic, lightly told with mystery, suspense, romance, intrigue. It was a quick and enjoyable read.

📚📚📚📚A #wildechase action adventure! Non-stop from page one this novel finds Dr. Nina & Eddie high up in the Himalayas and deep in an underground facility in North Korea. Atlantean artifacts and daring Bond-espionage as well as death-defying Mission Impossible/A-Team stunts. Great for lovers of all those things. (4/52)

Okay the last book of the series. I have put it down as a pick but mainly for the series. Yes it had a good ending, but I felt a bit let down by this book. Didn‘t wow me in the way others in the series have.

However don‘t let this dissuade you from reading the series as I really enjoyed the series. #LizzyGardnerSeriesRead #TRRagan

EadieB I felt like it was a wrap-up of the series and not really a wow book either. 4d
Andrew65 @EadieB I‘d agree. 4d
Elizabeth2 I‘m loving Almost Dead. Shame this one didn‘t quite live up to the rest, but at least you felt like it wrapped things up, which is really important if an author is ending a series. 4d

Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 Tou might enjoy it more than I did. There is some good tension in the book. I just felt it changed Lizzie‘s character. 4d
Elizabeth2 @Andrew65 I can see what you mean, after finishing Almost Dead. I wonder though, after how much trauma Lizzy has endured, especially this last book, if Ragan doesn‘t see this as a natural progression in her personality. She‘s lost so much, she‘s tired of the bad guys winning, she doesn‘t care anymore about being one of the “good guys.” Or sees that her old methods don‘t work as well, because people keep getting hurt, so she‘s trying another way. 3d
Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 Yes you can see how this might come to pass, although I felt disappointed in her choices. 3d
Elizabeth2 @Andrew65 I totally get that. I might bump this one up, and not wait until February to read it after this conversation! I‘m anxious to see where the group goes. I read another series, years ago, with a group of vigilante women and it was very entertaining. But it had a bit of a lighter feeling than this series and the women started out as vigilantes, so there was no inconsistency with the characters‘ personalities. 3d
Andrew65 @Elizabeth2 I had to bump it up as would only have access to the book up to 18th Jan. 3d

I love my library! A few days ago I asked for Krueger and Coben and they are on Overdrive today! Plus, no one had had the time to snatch To Paradise, so my reading plans suddenly changed. Well, you only live once 😅😂😁😘

squirrelbrain Well done on getting To Paradise so quickly! 4d
EadieB You will love Cork O'Connor series! 4d
Tove_Reads @eadieb No doubt about it! Been waiting to get my hands on this book for ages. Luckily it gets easier getting hold of the books in the series. 3d

EadieB @Tove_Reads @Andrew65 I just started today this book and I'm loving it. Did you request it from NetGalley? (edited) 3d
Tove_Reads @eadieb Which book? 3d
Tove_Reads @eadieb It‘s for US readers 😕 3d
EadieB @Tove_Reads Oh! It will be published 2/1/22 so try to get a copy. It's a debut book but it's not one bit boring and I can't wait to see how it ends! 3d
Tove_Reads @eadieb Sounds good! Need to check when it gets here or if it‘ll be on Amazon UK. 3d
