True Spies by Shana Galen

True Spies by Shana Galen

October 3, 2014 Historical, Reviews 3 DNF

True Spies is my second attempt at Shana Galen’s recent series. I need to give up. Galen was once a reliable read for me but the new direction is incompatible with my tastes. True Spies starts off strong, combining a faltering marriage and a heroine who has had enough of holding… Read more »

The Collector by Nora Roberts

The Collector by Nora Roberts

August 26, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 2 DNF

I feel like a DNF machine lately. After mentioning my issues with this book on Twitter several people @ replied me with a decided lack of enthusiasm. Nora Roberts’ The Collector is not a hit and so say we all. Or at least those of us that said it. She’s got… Read more »

They Say Love Is Blind by Pepper Pace

They Say Love Is Blind by Pepper Pace

August 19, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 4 DNF

Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

What happens when a roller coaster author stops delivering that giddy can’t-believe-you’re-still-reading thrill? A DNF at page 123. I generally tear through a Charlaine Harris book in a few hours, reaching the end with the same unsettled feeling I get after inadvertently eating an entire pint of ice cream. Three weeks into Midnight Crossroad, I… Read more »

Seduction’s Canvas by K.M. Jackson

Seduction’s Canvas by K.M. Jackson

July 17, 2014 Contemporary, Reviews 1 DNF

I’m giving up on K.M. Jackson books for now. Two DNF reviews in a row feels less like reviewing and more like piling on. I picked up Seduction’s Canvas because it’s in the third person. Jackson’s Bounce has a lot of strong reviews, but the first person didn’t work for me. Seduction’s Canvas… Read more »

Hush by Carey Baldwin

Hush by Carey Baldwin

April 21, 2014 Reviews, Romantic Suspense 0

(NOTE: Between writing this review and posting it the author has corrected the Amazon page to reflect that it is a reissued work.) I DNF’d Carey Baldwin‘s Hush for reasons that didn’t have much to do with the story. One of my absolute hottest buttons is a rewritten work issued… Read more »
