Water is falling out of the sky, the sun is in hiding, and BookBub has an interesting suggestion for us. Except I’ve already read 2/3 of it. Oh well, It’s not like I’m hurting for something to read.
1. Complex : Sofia Wise returns home to mourn the loss of her grandmother, and the last thing on her mind is love. When a dark, devastatingly handsome stranger shows up on her family’s doorstep, Sofia takes one look and is tempted to make her visit permanent. The problem is, the town’s detective is suspicious of her entire family, and it might take some convincing to prove that she’s more interested in the man himself than in the complex case at hand.
2. Choices: Just as Chloe starts dating the town’s contractor, a handsome doctor passes through their town.
With new dating options, Chloe is forced to make a crucial choice. Marry the golden boy or the charming doctor who makes her weak in the knees. Can she trust God’s plans for her future?
3. Beyond Repair: Hiding from her troubled past, Jules Demski sequesters herself in the mountains of Eron, Colorado, the only place she’s ever felt safe. Her solitude is shattered when an injured man staggers into her family’s barn.
Burned once and still in repair, the last thing she needs is another criminal on her hands. If she can only convince her heart of this, she just might be able to resist the interloper’s charm.
This just popped up before me. It’s a new book by a popular author Dani Pettrey, set to be released in May 2023. It’s a pre-order bargain. I’m excited, I love new books.
The Shifting Current: A Coastal Guardian Novella
An elusive killer. A false identity. A deadly maze of lies.
When Coast Guard Investigative Service Special Agent LOGAN PERRY’s beloved grandfather is murdered, Logan races to his hometown of Cauldron Creek, New Mexico to investigate the murder. His teammate and friend, EMMY THORTON, insists on joining him. Not a good idea—not when he loves her, but carries a secret that he knows will tear them apart.
Emmy knows Logan will pursue the investigation no matter the cost, and she won’t let the man she loves plunge into a dangerous situation alone. She needs to be at his side, even if he believes friendship is her only reason for joining him.
What looks like a robbery gone wrong rapidly shifts, drawing Emmy and Logan into a dizzying maze where nothing is as it appears. Every lead slips through their fingers as threats against them grow deadlier at each turn. Having only each other to rely on, their love for one another deepens, but will they live long enough to admit their attraction to each other?
They’re in the killer’s sights. One wrong move puts their future together and their lives on the line.
I’m starting a new read and I’m undecided on how it’s going. The story is interesting but the writing is inconsistent. It fluctuates between telling and showing. At this point I will keep at it a bit longer to see if the story is enough reason to keep going. I will hurry through enough to at least see how it ends if it isn’t gong well.
Tess has her work cut out for her—from her day job at the police station to her nights on the campaign trail with her husband, she’s stretched thin. Her two young children also keep her busy, but thankfully she has a supportive mother-in-law who lives just next door.
When the legendary Mothman makes a terrifying appearance and a local librarian goes missing, Tess feels compelled to get involved, convinced something evil has been unleashed on her little town. Then another woman disappears—this one bearing an eerie resemblance to Tess—and the police receive a cryptic message hinting that a serial killer is on the prowl.
After a nightmarish turn of events completely upends the Spencer family, Tess musters her courage to hunt for the monstrous murderer in the woods…even if she has to walk straight into the Mothman’s lair to do it.
I did acquire one new book (well, in a few months I’ll have it when it’s published) so it not a bad day.
I’ll be back later if anything good shows up.
In the meantime. . .
