Ring in the Dead (J.P. Beaumont #20.5)

Ring in the Dead (J.P. Beaumont, #20.5)Ring in the Dead by J.A. Jance
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was great to listen to while driving home. It held my interest and the story-line was great. I did’t feel like I was missing any of the story even though it’s #20.5. The main character was killer and I loved how the author wrote it in a way that I wasn’t board with it. I’ll definitely be picking up more books by J.A. Jance. is the first book I’ve read/listened to from this author and I’m glad I did.

Invitation (Harbingers #1-4)

Invitation (Harbingers #1-4)Invitation by Bill Myers
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I give this book a 3.5. It wasn’t bad and the story-line was good. I like how each short story was different but with the same characters. I think some of the characters uniqueness got lost in translation and the story line got a bit jumbled, which is understandable with 4 different authors. However, if you like paranormal thrillers this is the book for you.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love being able to start and finish a book while I have my morning coffee. Jack Reacher has always been an amazing character and I like the adventures he goes on. This adventure touched a little too close to home for him. If you’re looking for a short, fast paced, story then this is a book for you!

Bound Together (Sea Haven/Sisters of the Heart, #6)

Bound Together (Sea Haven/Sisters of the Heart, #6)Bound Together by Christine Feehan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy WOW!! This story blew my socks off! I didn’t want to put it down, even through some of the rough parts. And I mean there was just some parts that were hard to read. This story follows Viktor who is the leader of a motorcycle club and his desire to get back to his wife Blythe. However, being undercover for 5 years to bring down a pedophile ring has left it’s mark on him and his fellow brother and sisters. Blythe on the other hand, has felt abandon by Viktor because he left without a goodbye. She has gone through hardships too while he was away. I love how the story takes place is one of my favorite areas which is the Fort Bragg, Ca. The descriptions of the places are spot on and makes you feel like you’re actually there with the characters. I don’t want to say too much since I don’t want to give spoilers away. All I can say is that this book is full of action, and won’t disappoint!

This is my first introduction to Nathan McBride and his partner. Even though this is the 6th book, it stood on it own. It was fast paced, and kept me on my toes. I didn’t want to stop listening to it. If you’re into military thrillers then this book is for you! I can’t wait to read the other books in the series.

Book Summary:

Welcome to Hanover House….

Psychiatrist Evelyn Talbot has dedicated her life to solving the mysteries of the antisocial mind. Why do psychopaths act as they do? How do they come to be? Why don’t they feel any remorse for the suffering they cause? And are there better ways of spotting and stopping them?

Bull Mountain

Bull MountainBull Mountain by Brian Panowich
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For the love of chocolate! Holy hell this was an amazing book debut! I didn’t know what I was getting into, but I’m sure glad I got hooked by second page. This book is about a mountain crime family and spans from one generation to the next. It first follows the great grandfather and his brother, then moves on down the line of children. Telling the sad, twisted, and criminal story of all the lives that are effected just by one choice the great grandfather made decades ago. By the end of the book I found myself whispering “oh no way! that is twisted” just by a few twists I was blindsided by. If you love crime novels that are full of twists and turns then pick this book up! I’m sure you won’t want to put it down! I got this as an ARC from Firsttoread.com for an honest review.

Book Summary:
From a remarkable new voice in Southern fiction, a multigenerational saga of crime, family, and vengeance.

Clayton Burroughs comes from a long line of outlaws. For generations, the Burroughs clan has made its home on Bull Mountain in North Georgia, running shine, pot, and meth over six state lines, virtually untouched by the rule of law. To distance himself from his family’s criminal empire, Clayton took the job of sheriff in a neighboring community to keep what peace he can. But when a federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms shows up at Clayton’s office with a plan to shut down the mountain, his hidden agenda will pit brother against brother, test loyalties, and could lead Clayton down a path to self-destruction.

In a sweeping narrative spanning decades and told from alternating points of view, the novel brilliantly evokes the atmosphere of the mountain and its inhabitants: forbidding, loyal, gritty, and ruthless. A story of family—the lengths men will go to protect it, honor it, or in some cases destroy it—Bull Mountain is an incredibly assured debut that heralds a major new talent in fiction.
