Picky Reader – 26

Roadside Crosses by Jeffery Deaver. (Paperback) Took me a while to get into this, but when I did, I was in all the way. Lots of unexpected twists and turns. Haven’t read much straight suspense lately so it was a good pick.
Forbidden Magic by Jo Beverley. (Trade paperback) Jo Beverley is another author who turns out consistently high quality work. Forbidden Magic is no exception. If you enjoy historical romantic fiction, read her.
A Proper Mistress by Shannon Donnelly. (Kindle) Darling Regency historical. Loved the characters and this isn’t your usual Regency plot. I’d definitely read more by this author. If you’re picky about typos, though, you might have a problem with this one.
The List by J.A. Konrath and Jack Kilborn. (Kindle) (Can’t beat the convenience of the Kindle. When I finish one book, there’s a list of unread books to choose from right in my hand.) I don’t read techno-thrillers as a general rule, but I really enjoyed this. It was an incredibly unusual premise.
Still Life With Murder by P.B. Ryan. (Kindle) Historical mystery. I LOVED it. One of the best books I’ve read in recent memory. There’s a series of them featuring Nell Sweeney. Can’t wait to read the next one!
Suckers by Jack Kilborn, J.A. Konrath and Jeff Strand. (Kindle) On the strength of how much I liked the The List and because there was an intriguing preview of Suckers at the end, I bit. I should have read the description better. Just not my thing.
Dancing in the Moonlight by RaeAnne Thayne. (Kindle) A sweet contemporary romance featuring a heroine who’s lost part of her leg due to military service, which is unusual in a romance heroine to say the least.
All She Ever Wanted by Barbara Freethy. (Kindle) For a variety of reasons, not my thing.
Murder on Black Friday by P.B. Ryan (Kindle) Another in the Nell Sweeney mystery series. Loved it.
Murder in a Mill Town by P.B. Ryan (Kindle) Another in the Nell Sweeney mystery series. Loved it.
Finding Clarity by Laura Novak. (free on Kindle) Not my thing.
