Review: The Boy Next Door by Annabelle Costa

I love this book. I fell in love with it right from the start, as soon as Tasha began to narrate. She is witty, sassy, and hilarious. At the same time she doesn’t understand love nearly as well as she thinks she does. After some wild years, she’s finally ready to settle down, but she still can’t see that the right guy for her has been there all along. It’s frustrating in the best possible way to watch her screwing up her life. The book has some flow charts at the ends of some of the chapters that are laugh out loud funny. Costa really understands humor, that’s for sure. And she also knows how to reveal an endearing vulnerability just below the humor. It’s a real talent. I’d read anything at all that she wrote! Jason is...

Review: A Slow, Cold Death

A Slow Cold Death by Susy Gage This book was sent to me so I could provide a prepub blurb. What does that mean? Take a look at this… Yup, that’s my name on the back of the book. You know what? It’s just about as exciting as having my name on the front of a book. This book was a lot of fun. It’s a murder mystery set in an academic university. I’ve never read a book about the crazy world of PhD researchers, though I know a little bit about it from my friends and family who are academics. The story takes place in a physics department and one of the things I most loved about it was the kooky cast of characters. Particularly Lou, who was paralyzed in a car accident fairly recently and it comes to light that his accident may not have been...

Monday Book Review: A Life Worth Living

Monday Book Review: A Life Worth Living

A Life Worth Living by Lorrie Kruse Review… Summary: Matt Huntz is a construction worker in a family business and engaged to a beautiful young woman when he has a car accident and wakes up in the hospital with damage to his spinal cord. The book follows as he works on getting function back, goes to rehab, tries to go home and deal with family and a crumbling romantic relationship. The whole time there is a question of exactly what happened the night of the accident, because Matt cannot remember. The Good: I really enjoyed this book. The first thing that really impressed me was how accurate all the details were. This is an author who definitely knows a lot about SCI (and when I interview her, I’m going to ask her about that!) From how the insurance...

Monday Book Review: A Marriage to Fight For

Marriage To Fight For by Raina Lynn Review… Summary: The hero and heroine (Garrett and Maggie) had been married before and they are each other’s only loves. But his work as a police officer, going undercover frequently, was too much for her to take. She divorced him, but remained close with his family. Then Garrett is in a plane crash and seriously injured (resulting in paraplegia). He had been on his way back to tell Maggie that he wants to get remarried. The extent of his injuries put a complication in that plan. The Good: With the cheesy cover and description, I was surprised by how much I liked this book. I’ll admit I actually don’t have very high standards for standard romance novels. I usually don’t like them much, finding them...

Monday Book Review: Cowboy Down

Cowboy Down by Vanessa Gray Bartal Review… Summary: In typical rom-com fashion, the plot set up is far fetched but fun. Layla, a foster kid just leaving the system, witnesses a murder and is sent into witness protection at a ranch with four brothers (cousins of one of the police officers). She goes from Chicago to Montana and it’s an adjustment, but she loves housekeeping for the four cowboys. She falls for Cade, who has recently been paralyzed in an accident involving a bull. While Layla and Cade fluctuate between enjoying and misunderstanding each other, the murderer is busy tracking her down to eliminate her as a witness. The tone of the book is much lighter than one might expect from a plot involving murder. The Good: There’s a lot of good!...
