There were some really interesting stories in this novel just not enough to make up for the not so interesting one.

I picked this book up for the cover and I stayed for the story. This was a surprisingly compelling read. What would you do if you knew the date Of your death?

It is really hard to rate this novel. There is not a likeable character in the bunch. I have never read a book with so many disgusting characters. That being said it is not a bad read, it shows how quickly a neighborhood dispute can get out of hand. If you don't mind reading books with unlikeable character then this may well be for you.

It is very rare that I rare book anything other then 3 stars, so that alone should tell you how great this novel is. I listened to the audio book and I myself could not have picked a better narrator. If you looking for a 5 star read this book is for you.

I picked this book up thinking it was a Dirk Pitt novel, I was disappointed when I realised it wasn't. I kept reading and I'm so glad I did. Isaac Bell is a wonderful character and this novel was no stop action. I'll be reading more Isaac Bell stories.

The second book in the Michael Bennett series and what a cracker it is. The novel moves along at a relatively face pace and though the plot is a little out there it is still within the realm of being believable. These books are a new favorite for me.

A nice novel about the importance of family and the importance of communication. An added bonus the author knows Venice extremely well.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The struggle of self and a place in the world really rang true. The characters were well rounded and I felt very believable. The sprinkling of math through the book really delighted me.

i didn't enjoy the Cruel Prince at all. Decided to read this books as a friend told me it was so much better than the first novel. I am happy to write that this book is so much better than the first. There is far more character development in this novel and thankfully the characters are much more likable. I am looking forward to reading the third novel.

It is with mixed feelings that I rate this book. There were times I hated it and times that I loved it.
The last 15% of the booked saved it for me.

I really enjoyed this novel. There is very little known about France Gorges and Borman manages to bring her to life in this novel. The story is compelling as are the characters. I am glad there are more novels in the wonderful series.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. Bennett is a compelling character and his family drama just adds to the appeal. This was a great introduction to the Michael Bennett series . If all of the books are as good as this one then this whole series will be a winner.

This was a great book. While John is very similar to Jack Reacher, he is his own character. The characters are well developed and the story itself was fantastic. I will be reading on.

Lindsay Boxer finds herself in the middle of two mysteries in this novel. The women in these novels are stong, independent and sasey all without being pains in the butts, something that most writers have a hard time delivering. I love these novels.

Night Embrace | Sherrilyn Kenyon

I love the dark hunters series. This novel outlines Talon's story and I have to say it was an amazing story. The level of detail we receive on Talon's back story is incredible, and the reason he decided to give up his soul is totally believable. I love the use of Gods that we are all familiar with is in my opinion a stroke of genius. Make no mistake these novels have a large romance component but they are more than romance novels.

This really is a cosy mystery. While i enjoyed the story it lacked a little something that I just cannot put my finger on. It was by no stretch a bad read but it was not great either.

These books are slowly going down hill - this is not a surprise to me I have read the reviews of the next few books. I am going to bow out on a high note and move on, there are far to many great books to read.

This is exactly what you except from a women's murder club book. These are great solid reads this one made even better by Lindsay being involved in a legal case herself. I love these books and I will be continuing with this series.

Another solid book in this series. Sookie is on a mission to protect her brother and she does a fine job of it. Eric does not appear to much in this novel and it sufferd for it. I guess i am only reading for one reason

Silver | CHRIS. HAMMER

Hammer is becoming one of my must read authors. In this follow up to Scrublands, Martin Scarsden once again finds in himself at the center of a murder investigation, and once again Mandy is chief suspect. In this book we get more of an insight into Martin's previous life and a glimpse of a possible future. This is a long book but it is well worth the read. I did not see th e ending coming.

I challenged myself to finish this series this year. Looking back I have no idea why I stopped reading them. They are dark fantasy novels laced with romance - I see a theme emerging in my reading tastes of late.

This is a great addition to the of Jack Reacher and as an added Bonus I was introduced to Will Trent. My only issue is that then short sorry ended abruptly and on a cliff hanger of sorts. Let‘s hope there is a follow up.

These books seem to not only be getting darker but also more gruesome and frank depraved. This was my least favorite book of the series so far. I am going to continue reading and I hope that the elements of this book that I did not like do not make a reappearance.

This is my least favorite book so far in this series. That being said I love this series. There were elements of this book that I found really annoying and they centered around Phury the main brother in this book. It will not stop me reading on as I really do like the brothers.

So far this has been my favorite Haller book. Haller is a totally believable character as are his struggles. This novel see‘s Haller representing a women accused of murder. I have to say I did not see this end coming.
