BookDescriptionhalfsize.jpg
Running away from home was never Chloe Kowalski’s plan. Neither was ending up the target of killers, or having her body change in unusual ways. She only wanted a vacation, someplace far from her crazy parents and their irrational fear of water. She only wanted to do something normal for once, and maybe get to know her best friend’s hot stepbrother a bit better at the same time.
But the first day she goes out on the ocean, strange things start to happen. Dangerous things that should be impossible. Things to which ‘normal’ doesn’t even begin to apply.
Now madmen are hunting her. A mysterious guy with glowing blue eyes is following her. And her best friend’s stepbrother seems to be hiding secrets all his own.
It was supposed to be a vacation. It’s turning out to be a whole lot more.

A Recommended Easter Read – Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven by Fannie Flagg

Happy Easter 2

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful Easter and that you have been able to spend time with your loved ones over the holiday. I was fortunate to have my mother visit for a week, and we spent some time traveling around Texas. While browsing in an Amarillo antique store, I found a gently used hard copy edition of Fannie Flagg’s Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven.

Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven (Elmwood Springs # 3) by Fannie Flagg

BookDescriptionhalfsize_thumb.jpg

From the author of Fried Green Tomatoes, comes a comedy-mystery set in a small town. Combining southern warmth with unabashed emotion and sidesplitting hilarity, Fannie Flagg takes readers back to Elmwood Springs, Missouri, where the most unlikely and surprising experiences of a high-spirited octogenarian inspire a town to ponder the age-old question: Why are we here?

Life is the strangest thing. One minute, Mrs. Elner Shimfissle is up in her tree, picking figs, and next thing she knows she is off on an adventure she never dreamed of, running into people she never in a million years expected to meet. Meanwhile, back home, Elner’s nervous, high-strung niece Norma faints and winds up in bed with a cold rag on her head; Elner’s neighbor Verbena rushes immediately to the Bible; her truck driver friend, Luther Griggs, whom Elner has known since he was a boy, runs his eighteen-wheeeler into a ditch-and the entire town is thrown for a loop and left wondering, “What is life all about anyway?” Except for Tot Whooten, who owns Tot’s Tell It Like It Is beauty shop. Her main concern is that the end of the world might come before she can collect her social security.

In this comedy-mystery, those near and dear to Elner discover something wonderful: Heaven is actually right here, right now, with people you love, neighbors you help, friendships you keep. Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven is proof once more that Fannie Flagg “was put on this earth to write” (Southern Living), spinning tales as sweet and refreshing as iced tea on a summer day, with a little extra kick thrown in.  (from the book jacket  flap)

The sole heir of his uncle’s estate, Brack receives a rundown bar called the Pirate’s Cove, a rotting beach house, and one hundred acres of preserved and valuable wetland along the Ashley River. A member of Charleston’s wealthiest and oldest families offers Brack four million dollars for the land. All Brack wants is his uncle’s killer.

THIS IS NOT A STANDALONE BOOK – IT IS HIGHLY SUGGESTED THAT YOU READ ALL THE PREVIOUS NOVELS AND NOVELLAS BEFORE STARTING THIS BOOK

Spencer Shrike is a man with a plan. Get in. Get out. Move on. He loves Ron the Bomb, and her safety is the only thing on his mind these days. But life is a tricky bastard, and conning criminals for the better part of ten years brings its own set of problems. Sure, Rook lied her way out of a sticky situation, covering for crimes Ronin, Ford, and Spencer committed, and getting them all off scot-free in the process. 

But not everyone is buying Rook’s story, and Spencer is desperate to figure out who’s in town setting them up for a fall.

Veronica the Bombshell Vaughn has put up with Spencer Shrike’s shit for years and where has it gotten her? A big fat nowhere. No ring, no house, no kids, and no promises. In fact, Spencer is worse than ever—completely distant and moody. She’s done sitting at home, pining over a man she can’t have. 

But she’s not opposed to fighting for him. 

Ron the Bomb fights hard and she fights dirty, so she’s willing to do whatever it takes to get Spencer’s attention.

But now there’s another man in town with his eye on her. He’s got secrets too, but unlike Spencer, Bobby Mansi is more than willing to let Veronica in on them. 

The entire Rook and Ronin series comes full circle. Every con, every lie, and every skeleton in the closet is back for one final shot at vengeance and the only way to set it right…  is to get out the guns.

Mini Review of M-Day (M-Day #1)

ccede-mday_frontjpegBefore the day… before M-day… people used to read books and watch movies about zombies. They used to dress up as zombies; pretend to kill zombies… Basically, zombies had become a part of popular culture in a very unexpected way. 

The highly anticipated zombie apocalypse never came. 

What did come was much worse than any city over run with shambling corpses after brains and flesh. A virus… a virus that only affected men. Nobody knew what caused it, or where it had come from, not that it really mattered. It’s here and there’s no going back. 

Maxine was one of the lucky ones–she got out alive. She and her friends banded together to survive the new desolate conditions left behind by the virus. When a supply gathering mission goes awry, Max and company are left with no better choice than to trust a group of uninfected military men. No longer on the run from her infected husband, Max discovers there could be worse dangers for her on the horizon… Like losing her heart to her mysterious savior everyone calls Zee.

 

Mini Review  red half size

 

When I post spotlights of books, I choose the ones I am interested in reading and want to share my finds with other readers. M-Day is one of those books I posted about and finally had the opportunity to read, but it was not at all what I expected. Maybe I should have read the reviews beforehand, but  I didn’t want to be influenced by other readers’ opinions of the book.

I know it’s a cliché to say I really wanted to like this book, but it’s true. I was attracted to this novel because it has an unusual twist on the typical zombie-infested post-apocalyptic fiction I’ve read. Like other books in the zombie genre, there is an outbreak of a virus, but only men become infected. Similarly, these men become mindless and animalistic in their nature, losing their ability to think and reason. They also become faster and stronger than normal. However, this is where the similarities end. The men don’t desire to feast upon the women’s flesh. Instead, they hunt and enslave them for their own deranged sexual purposes. Although the premise of the book is creative in its approach to an apocalyptic disaster, the eroticism and obsession with sex become so dominant that the rest of the plot is diluted and shallow.

From the book’s description it’s obvious this will be a war between the sexes, and I expected there would be violence and some sexual situations. However, what I read was more of an erotic dark “romance” with a weak post-apocalyptic storyline, and this is the major reason I was disappointed by the book. The world-building needs to be fleshed out with more details about survival in this dark and gritty setting. Instead, the sexual depravity of the infected men eclipses other aspects of this post-apocalyptic environment.

The book has a strong beginning that introduces us to three women, Max, Evo, and Izzy, who have banded together to survive and evade the horrors of being captured by the infected men (I-Men) in search of women to possess. Running low on fuel, Max decides to sneak into one of the I-Men camps to find gasoline. There, she meets and is rescued by Zee who leads the women to a temporary sanctuary guarded by the military. From this point on, the story went downhill for me. The emphasis moves to Zee and Max’s instant desire for each other and their sexual relationship ensues. The love scenes are frequent and explicit. Max and Zee seem to fall into a haze of lust and forget about preparing for the ugly reality that awaits them.

When Max is kidnapped by her infected husband, readers are given a vivid description into what life is like for the women who are captured and enslaved to satisfy the I-Men’s insatiable sexual cravings. The brutality these women suffer is revolting and was too much for me. I was also disappointed by the excessive use of profanity that weakened the dialogue, yet one could argue that it fits right in with the deterioration of this society.

All in all, this book just did not work for me. If you are looking for a dark erotic read set in a post-apocalyptic world then M-Day might interest you.

Kennedy O’Connell had all the happiness she’d ever dreamed—until someone stole it away. Now on the run for her life, she has a choice to make—disappear forever or make those responsible pay. Her choice is easy.

Two men want to help her, each with their own agenda.

Detective Nick Gallagher is accustomed to pursuing killers within the law. Targeted for death, his life turned inside out, Nick vows to bring down those responsible, no matter the cost. But the beautiful and innocent Kennedy O’Connell brings out every protective instinct. Putting aside his own need for vengeance, he’ll do whatever is necessary to keep her safe and help her achieve her goals.

Billionaire philanthropist Grey Justice has a mission, too. Dubbed the ‘White Knight’ of those in need of a champion, few people are aware of his dark side. Having seen and experienced injustice—Grey knows its bitter taste. Gaining justice for those who have been wronged is a small price to pay for a man’s humanity.

With the help of a surprising accomplice, the three embark on a dangerous game of cat and mouse. The stage is set, the players are ready…the game is on. But someone is playing with another set of rules and survivors are not an option.
