Cold Heart Creek (Detective Josie Quinn #7) by Lisa Regan
Two campers dead, one gone.
A missing woman found. And a cult
at the center of it all.
Mystery .... 332 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(Another good one in this series!)
A View Most Glorious by Regina Scott
Votes for women. Work.
Climbing Mt. Rainier. That's what
Cora wants, NOT marriage.
Historical fiction .... 358 pages .... 3.5/5 stars.
(Not quite as good as Scott's previous two novels, A Distance Too Grand and Nothing Short of Wondrous, but I did really like Nathan Hardee, Cora's mountaineering guide.)
Shadows of the Dead by Spencer Kope
One woman saved with
seven more to find, and a
killer to be caught.
Mystery .... 372 pages .... 4.5/5 stars.
(Magnus 'Steps' Craig, with his special tracking ability, is a very fun and interesting character. This third book in the series is as good as the first, Collecting the Dead.)
I love your Haiku reviews! They are so neat! I am planning to read my first Regina Jennings book in the next few weeks...ReplyDelete
I really loved her first two books! :DDelete
Three books I know I would love. A View Most Glorious I will definitely be reading though.ReplyDelete
It's another fun read from Regina Scott. And set in an interesting time period. :)Delete
Intriguing. They do make me want to know more about these books.ReplyDelete
That's my goal. :DDelete
I've read the previous two 'Steps' Craig books and loved them. This one is still on my TBR. He's an interesting character, isn't he?ReplyDelete
He's so great! I love his weird ability and how he uses it to solve each mystery. :)Delete
Cold Heart Creek sounds like the one most for me.ReplyDelete
Long live Haiku Reviews!
I've really been enjoying Lisa Regan's Detective Josie Quinn series! She writes a really good mystery.Delete
I've been eyeing A View Most Glorious. I'm glad you were still able to enjoy it even though it wasn't as good as the previous two.ReplyDelete
It's still a fun read; I just liked her other two books better. :)Delete
The first and last books sound so ominous. Love your haikus.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Kami! :)Delete
Mt. Rainier is about sixty miles north from here: interesting that they'd write a book about it! after the eruption of St. Helens, some of us geologists keep an uneasy eye on it, lol...ReplyDelete
:D I definitely wouldn't want to see that one blow like St. Helens did!Delete
I'm glad to see that you enjoy Spencer Kope's seris, too. I really like Steps.ReplyDelete
Steps is such a fun character! I'm looking forward to reading the next book in this series.Delete
Shadows of the Dead sounds like my kind of read. I'll check out the series! :)ReplyDelete
It's such a good series! And 'Steps', the main character, is so great. Be sure to start with the first one, Collecting the Dead.Delete
Your Haiku reviews are terrific. I love how you can describe these books in so few words. As an avid camper, I think I'll pass on Cold Heart Creek. It might scare me too much! LOL.ReplyDelete
:D Camping does seem to inspire a lot of scary stories, doesn't it? And thanks for liking my Haikus. I have fun writing them.Delete
Shadows of the Dead sounds like it needs to go on my TBR. Great reviews!ReplyDelete
It's so good! Be sure to read the first one, Collecting the Dead, too.Delete
Like your Haikus. The Mt. Rainier climbing makes me most curious. Such an interesting mountain to see from Seattle.ReplyDelete
They spend several chapters hiking up Mt. Rainier, which was both interesting and entertaining. :)Delete
These aren't my type of books to read but I've enjoyed your haiku reviews, you always make a book sound so good.ReplyDelete
Have a lovely day.
Thank you! Some Haikus turn out better than others, but I'm happy that you enjoy them. :)Delete
That was fun and I haven't read any of those.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mary. And I'd recommend any of these books if you're ever in the mood for a mystery or historical romance. :)Delete
I always seem to come here when you have just done some Haiku Reviews, which I love. I cannot even do a capsule review in three sentences, much less 17 syllables. All of these are very well done.ReplyDelete
Thank you! It can be a challenge sometimes to get the syllable count down...and sometimes I don't even try...but I always have fun writing them. :)Delete
Ooh nice. I love a good cult :)ReplyDelete
They're always so strange and obsessive...they make good suspects in any kind of mystery. :)Delete
I always look forward to your Haiku reviews. Cold Heart Creek sounds especially good. Cults!ReplyDelete
I've really been enjoying this Lisa Regan series. Every book has been good. :)Delete
The first book sounds intriguing! As always, love your haiku reviews. :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Melody! :)Delete
Aww...some good haikus to start off my Saturday. I like writing my Tankas in the same way but have discovered the reviews are pretty limited. to say the least! Ha! My Friday Quotes are hereReplyDelete
Your Tanka reviews are awesome. I really like them. :)Delete
Your haiku remain something I completely look forward to all the time!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Verushka! I really appreciate that. :)Delete
These are awesome, great job, Lark.ReplyDelete
Thank you! :)Delete
Too bad A VIEW MOST GLORIOUS isn't as good as the first two books. Oh well. I've enjoyed the series a lot, so I'm sure I'll like it too.ReplyDelete
It's still a good read, just not as good as the first two were. I really loved those.Delete
