What are we Reading, Wednesday? (Part 2)
How’s everyone’s week going so far? It’s been a little quiet around here, hubby had surgery a week ago and we are all basically in quiet and care mode right now; which is nice because it gives me a little more time to read and write. *evil laugh*
Awhile ago I picked up a Romantic Suspense (probably my favorite genre) by Jayne Ann Krentz called, Secret Sisters. I loved it. I was thrilled because I was in between books from my favorite authors and looking for something new and I really enjoyed the author’s voice and the flow of the story. What also made me want to boogie was when I discovered that Jayne had MANY other books out there (she writes under THREE different names), so I rushed to the bookstore to get as many of her books as I could find. (I have a small mountain of them, perched on a chair at my dining room table…just waiting to all fall down like Humpty-Dumpty.)
So, just the other day, I finished reading, Flash. Even though this book was published back in 1998, you don’t get the feeling of going back in time. The suspense element is good, there was a point towards the end when I was sure that the book was set to end, but the author threw in a small red herring and I was honestly a little surprised with the ending. In a very good way. I liked the female lead, even if the description of her office space leaves me cringing; and the hero was not too overbearing with just enough protective instincts. (Generally speaking, I really prefer that a heroine that isn’t whiny or weak – in the sense that she waits for everyone else to solve her problems for her. I can’t stand being in the head of someone who is obnoxiously selfish, no matter how great the story is; you know?)
