Haiku Reviews...

 

Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye by Victoria Laurie


A blind date with a 
cute cop leads to Abby's help
on his next murder case.


Mystery .... 295 pages .... 4.5/5 stars.
(This is a fun one! I really liked both Abby and Det. Dutch Rivers.)





A Wagon Train Weekend by Stephenia H. McGee


Can a trip back in time
save Seth and Collette's relationship?
They're about to find out.


Romance ....214 pages .... 4/5 stars.
(A sweet, lighthearted, just-for-fun romance set both in the present and in 1857. Thanks, Ashley, for recommending it!)




Devoted by Dean Koontz


A boy who can't speak.
A dog who can hear his thoughts.
Evil that must be stopped.


Suspense .... 369 pages .... 3/5 stars.
(Koontz's Watchers, which is also about a really smart dog, is a much better book.)





To Win Her Heart by Karen Witemeyer


Books brought them together,
but secrets from Levi's past
just might tear them apart.


Romance .... 347 pages .... 5/5 stars.
(A librarian and a blacksmith falling in love...you were right, Cindy, this was a good one!)



Happy Reading!

    1. It's a sweet and fun little romance. And certain scenes when they're stuck in the past really made me laugh.

  7. I love Watchers so much. I can't get into Koontz's newer books.

    1. If his new books are all like Devoted I can see why. His older books had such depth and character development. I was a little disappointed by this more recent book.

  8. I love these, Lark! It's been a very long time since I've read anything from Dean Koontz.

  9. You are so clever, Lark! The 'psychic eye' book sounds fun. It has been forever since I read a book by Dean Koontz. One upon a time, I used to read them all. ;-)

    1. I hadn't either! I used to read him all the time, but then I stopped for awhile, so I haven't read any of his most recent books.

  12. I haven't read any of these, but your haiku's seem to do a great job of summarizing them. Amazing!

    1. I think Short Straw Bride was the first book by Witemeyer that I read; it's a fun one, too. :)

  18. Is there a Dean Koontz book you'd recommend? I see his books around & have wondered about them but never actually read any yet. Carol @journeydestination

    1. So three of my favorite Koontz books are: Watchers, Lightning, and Twilight Eyes. Lightning has a time travel twist in it which was fun, and Watchers has a great (and smart!) dog named Einstein in it. I'd say check out one of those. :)

  19. I haven't read a Dean Koontz book for a long time! I really miss his older books, though. His recent releases are quite different from them, I'd say.

    1. I agree with you, not that I've read many of his new releases, but I think I prefer his older books. :)
