Another death at work and now the dorm (residence hall) is being called death dorm. Heather is really trying not to get involved but too many people are divulging information which leads her to sort of solve the murder of the cheerleader. Cooper and Detective Canavan keep asking her to not involve herself but she just can't help it... curiosity is her worst enemy. With the help of Reggie, the street drug dealer, certain details get kicked into gear unbeknownst to Heather. I will miss Reggie, if he doesn't make it into the rest of the series. I got use to the "drug dealer" outside her brownstone. Delightful series, loving it!...more
While not as good as Hurricane Hannah, it did have Buster the Alligator... and a talking bird. It's an island and refuge for both parties who fall inWhile not as good as Hurricane Hannah, it did have Buster the Alligator... and a talking bird. It's an island and refuge for both parties who fall in love. Both have been jilted. One, a preacher, decided religion was about delivering messages from God to live a better life than what was good for the church of the parish he was working for... money talked there but Mark wasn't interested in that and he left the parish and the prestige... so did his fiance. She was all about the prestige, the name and the money. Lynn, a scientist, was involved with a professor who stole her working thesis while she was away dealing with her Aun'ts death. He even had it published. Since Lynn was an intern, her protests of him stealing her work were not believed or... her ex led her to believe that decision. Mark is still a preacher and Lynn is now a science teacher on the island. Lynn and Mark really discover each other only after the meddling ghost/spirit of Delphine arrives. Delphine wants Lynn to be happy, to pursue life, to love a partner in life... A series of events occur chancing that fate; that both parties will fall in love despite the odds.... Gambling a huge past time on this island... may the odds be ever in your favor. Ha! Cute title, preachy at times with a couple sizzle sex scenes... I thought the ending was flat but I enjoyed the theology lesson....more

Hope book two changes everything.I fell in love with this book and I want to continue the series. I did not enjoy or appreciate the ending though... Hope book two changes everything. This vampire, demon hunter series is definitely my cup of tea. Didn't expect to fall hook line and sinker the characters as I'm typically not a vampire reader. I dig the werewolves paranormal stories but this series is more in tune with Sookie Stackhouse titles... gritty, wild, sexy and carries an awesome story line. Bold characters, sassy one liners and a fresh look at vampires. Darkness filled with things that go bump in the night. Can't wait to sink my fangs into the next one. ...more
An arm caught off a fishing boat starts off the whole story and oh what a tangle web is woven when all the players come into play. Yancy is on paid leAn arm caught off a fishing boat starts off the whole story and oh what a tangle web is woven when all the players come into play. Yancy is on paid leave after attacking the husband of his girlfriend, he is then asked to make sure Miami keeps the arm as it must belong to someone up in their morgue. No dice... Yancy is then told to dispose of it, he doesn't think that's right so he ices the arm in his fridge. Low and behold a wife is asking about her missing husband. His boat is gone and he hasn't returned. Based off the initial autopsy by Miami and the instant widow's claims... Yancy believes foul play is afoot. Yancy gets the news he is not being prosecuted by the husband but he now has a new job, working as a restaurant inspector. Suddenly food doesn't taste so good and Yancy really wants to solve the case of the arm and the gentlemen's shady life. So multiple events occur and they are a hoot. I highly recommend not eating while reading this title. One has to read a book by Carl to understand it's quite hard to review everything going on. The bad monkey is on the Bahamas with his owner who is kicked off the land he grew up on because his half sister sold it to an individual to put hotels and casinos on it. Yes all things in the book are linked and in the end Yancy gets justice for those who need it. The hijinks to rid the spect home beside him are classic. A whole nother story, but fits right in the mix of crazy and bizarre. Even the F.B.I. dudes make a few pages.... ...more

Second chances, love, marriage, that beginning romance.... Those of us in long term relationships will understand the trials and tribulations of marriSecond chances, love, marriage, that beginning romance.... Those of us in long term relationships will understand the trials and tribulations of marriage, children, homes, jobs and all the other in between stuff as you turn the pages of this title. What Alice forgot, is not the only story going on in this narrative. There is her sister's life, her mother's life and Frannie. I liked Frannie the best and her love letters, they were very sentimental. Four women at turning points in their lives. Three, who have to help Alice get her memory back and guide her confused days along. While they are helping Alice, they are indeed changing themselves and Alice, their focus, will be the catalyst.
Imagine waking up from a fall, you don't remember... and thinking you were ten years younger than you were. I mean who doesn't want to be ten years younger? But when you wake up ten years younger, you have no existing memories of those years. Alice wakes up thinking she is pregnant with her first child and yet she has three. She was a bit heavy at 29 and now she is physically fit laying on a floor of the gym from her spin class. She hates the gym. The house her and Nick had a list of 99 things to do, is finished. Not even touching items or walking around brings back her memory. She has bits and pieces trying to reach the top but it remains fuzzy.
How can things get so upside down? Alice wonders how she got where she is, how she changed, where she obtained so much energy. When did she become this super Mom so involved with activities? Her first time encounter with all the children was chaos and begging the man she knows she is divorcing to stay is awkward. Alice wants to fix everything and be with Nick. While the bump on the head might have began the amnesia, there is another story that is stopping her from remembering. Her brain is in another state of disturbance and the readers will soon discover why Alice can't remember so quickly. Subconscious is a funny thing and trauma can affect people differently. Alice's children, especially the oldest, are in varying degrees of emotional baggage due to the divorce issues. Hearing their parent's say mean, awful things about each other, fights will make the children suffer. Looking in towards this family's controversy gave me pause to my own and what is really important.
I read this book in one day because I had to know what was going to happen to Alice and Nick. I wanted them to get back together and then I knew it might be impossible... I realized some things might have to change even when the memories returned but that fleeting hope and romantic inside me, wanted what Alice wanted.... to go back and fix it....more

But I love how Bobbi gets the attention of detectives and her fiancé, an FBI agent involved. Chaos and mass confusion with tons of wit and humor. Great series... Again too short....more
