Into the Fire

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! We're due for a little more snow, it seems, but hopefully that'll be Old Man Winter's last hurrah here. The first of my bulbs are beginning to force their way up through the mulch, and I'm ready for a change of season. Or at least no more dirty snow piled in the yard.

We've done three book giveaways in the last week over in the forum and I have two more sitting here on my desk for this week. If you're not registered to use the forum yet, hurry over. Registration is free and painless, I promise. Besides, a free book is a good thing, right?

And now, I have three new books to share with you this week, so let's not waste anymore time. First is Lisa Jackson's The Morning After
The Morning After
(Zebra). Nikki Gillette has landed the story of a lifetime, one guaranteed to let her write her own ticket with any newspaper in the country--a killer who buries his victims alive. Detective Pierce Reed is on the case, and none too pleased to have Nikki dogging his investigation with her own. But this killer will get personal, and Nikki may lose her life in her quest for journalistic fame. Great suspense here, though there are some parts that are may be a bit disturbing to someone looking for a light read. I was a little disappointed with the romantic aspect of things--which is rather light--but the book as a whole is a good read. I'm going to give it three and a half of Cupid's five arrows.

Next up is Katherine Leiner's Digging Out
Digging Out
(NAL). This one falls into the realm of women's fiction, rather than romance, so don't expect a happy ending here. Alys Davies has had a hard life, beginning with the landslide in Wales that devastated her family when she was a child and right on through to the failure of her marriage. Not exactly what I expected, but not a terrible book. But it's definitely not a romance.

Finally, we have Jessica Hall's Into the Fire
Into the Fire
(Onyx). Sable Duchesne is the prime suspect when the leading candidate for Lousiana's new governor is found dead in the same warehouse she was rescued from. Making matters worse, the detective on duty is her former sweetheart J. D. Gamble. Talk about awkward. Sparks fly between this pair despite their past together, or maybe because of it. Things would progress in that department much faster, though, if someone wasn't trying to kill Sable. As usual, fast-paced suspense and some super-steamy interaction between Sable and J. D. as well as a really, really happy ending. Also as usual, it's left me anxiously waiting her next book. I'm giving this one four and a half arrows.

Before closing for this time, I want to let you all know that our April Book Club Selection is ready to go, and I hope you'll join us for that one.

Until next time, happy reading!
