LizH (liz_h) | 955 comments Strange reading month, romance, fiction and of course mystery. Wait, that's what I mostly read, HA! Nothing was a major standout, not one I need to run to others to tell all about, but some good reads none the less.

22.23.24.HOT SECRETS; DANGEROUS SECRETS; SECRETS EXPOSED *** all by Lisa Renee Jones. Sex, more sex, plot, sex, characters, plot and more sex. It did hold my interest through all 3 books, so I guess I just needed some mindless drivel for a week or so :)
25. NO COLDER PLACE by SJ Rozan ****Another great installment in this series, from Bill's point of view. Lots of good twists that had me guessing, and is it my imagination, or are Bill and Lydia getting closer?
26. THE DEAD DON'T DANCE by Charles Martin **** Beautifully written full of emotion, love, loss, and above all never giving up hope. Should be 4.5 stars, too good to be just a 4, not quite a 5. There are some many reasons why he is one of my favorite authors, his writing is top notch!
27. THE THIRD RAIL by Michael Harvey *** 1/2.Love the Chicago setting, lived there for many years and I miss it! I lived there when this crash happened, and even though i was young, it was very concerning to me! Liked the main character, the plot and of course the twists! Will continue with this series that I have neglected. Would rate it a 3.5

Ann (annrumsey) | 14813 comments Good mix, Liz! I have found myself wishing for 1/2 stars on occasion too, but if GR started those I would have to revise hundreds of rankings, so I suppose best not to have them. As for Bill and Lydia, as romance fans, we can always hope they are! ;)

I think lately with the romance books I'm sticking in I need to switch to a good old fashion mystery or cozy book. my problem is I'm having to read too many books that don't grab me right away or if at all (which is happening right now between f2f book grp, arc to review for the shore bookstore) so I have way too many books going on at the same time so ending up jumping between them after maybe 20 some page each.
