Haiku Reviews...


Twisted (Tracers#5) by Laura Griffin


A new detective
and an FBI profiler track down
a serial killer.


Romantic suspense .... 370 pages .... 4.5/5 stars.
(I liked this one even more than Stone Cold Heart.)





Storm of Locusts (Sixth World #2) by Rebecca Roanhorse


A cult, a lightning sword,
a missing friend--Maggie must
fight the odds again.


Apocalyptic urban fantasy .... 311 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(An awesome sequel to Trail of Lightning.)





Undead by Kirsty McKay


Her class ski trip turns
horror show when Bobby's classmates
become the undead.


YA Zombie Apocalypse .... 263 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(Bonus:  It's set in Scotland during a snowstorm!)




Someone to Trust by Mary Balogh


She's widowed; he's nine
years younger. Together
they're a perfect match.


Regency Romance .... 369 pages ....  3.5/5 stars.
(In some ways, this story reminded me of Jane Austen's Persuasion.)




Happy Reading!

  3. These reviews remind me of the kind of thing the voiceover guy says at the beginning of movie trailers. I read them with that voice in my head.

  7. I'm going through the Tracer's series from the beginning. I have the audio of the second book and I'm halfway through. Usually a pretty good crime procedural/romantic suspense. Undead was fun. The nine year age difference with the woman being older isn't my favorite situation. I know, that makes me a hypocrite, especially being a woman, lol, but something about it. I don't know. Great reviews! :)

    1. I've been enjoying the Tracer's series a lot, although I have been reading them totally out of order. I'll probably read the first one in the series next. :D
