Hello, and welcome back! Mother Nature can't seem to make up her mind here--we're having early-spring-like weather instead of any winter weather now. I'm still holding out hope for snow, though perhaps not quite as much as the mid-west has seen recently.
First up is the new Linda Howard, To Die For (ISBN 0345476255) (Ballantine). Blair Mallory sounds just like the cheerleader she used to be, and things are going well. Except for one of her fitness club clients who's taken to imitating Blair ends up dead. Oops. Worse, the murder brings detective Wyatt Bloodsworth back into her life--the man who hurt her badly two years ago. I needed a light, fun read, and this fit the bill to a tee. Funny, as only Linda Howard can be, with the sort of strong, sexy hero she's famous for. This one's a definite keeper. I'm giving it four arrows.
Next is Karen Rose Smith's Which Child is Mine? (ISBN 0373246552) (Silhouette Special Edition). Chase Remmington's on a quest to find his daughter. Jillian Kendall is shocked at his claim when he arrives on her doorstep, but he can back it up, and suddenly, her entire life is turned upside down. Scary thoughts for any parent here in this story, but it's convincingly told, and will leave you smiling when you turn the last page. It's earned four arrows as well.
Finally, we have Shirley Jump's Her Frog Prince (ISBN 0373197462) (Silhouette Romance). Researcher Brad Smith and snobby Parris Hammond are not exactly a match made in heaven. Not exactly. But with a little help from Merry Montrose, they might just find a little common ground--enough to fall in love. Though Parris isn't exactly Merry's favorite person, and now that Merry's trapped in the body of an old woman thanks to a curse, helping Parris seems like a good idea--no matter what her personal feelings toward the woman. Too bad Parris isn't very cooperative.
