The Tasting for the entire series:

Why I bought it:

The blurb totally hooked me. Totally.

Dislike/like (ending on a high note):

Dislike~ ....
.... I’m thinking alright!

Like~ I love Victor. He is a flawed character, barely hanging in by a thread, yet he manages to stumble his way through cases, nab the bad guy and find a hottie. You gotta love that. His SO and the cast of secondary characters are all pretty awesome too. Good characters = much joy for Kris. *g*

Dislike~ Probably the only thing that makes me a bit squicky is that Jacob gets off on Victor’s abilities and experiences. It’s pretty easy to shrug off though if you think of it as a (granted, a very odd) kink and, hey, if it doesn’t bother Victor... :)

Like~ Just when you think you’ve figured out the crime/mystery side of things along comes a twist. I love the way this author’s mind works. She has plots, sub-plots, threads and undercurrents throughout her stories and pulls them all off to much satisfaction. That, my friends, takes skill and talent.

So, what I think:

This series is in my keeper collection. I love it. I’ve just finished the latest book, Camp Hell, and already I want more.


‘Tasting’ is my version of a mini-review where I talk a (very) little about what I liked and disliked about a book as well as who I think the story will appeal to. Oh, and I’ve added a bit about why I picked up the book in the first place – sometimes this can be interesting to know.
