This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection are:






Shiver [Hardcover]


When she swore off love, he was the last man she imagined would steal her heart.

If driving a piece-of-crap tow truck through the seediest part of town with a Smith & Wesson beside her means putting a roof over her son’s head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best damn repo woman on the books. The streetwalkers, the drug pushers, the bands of looking-for-trouble punks haunting the mean streets at midnight don’t intimidate her. These are her people. The guy she finds bound and bloodied in the trunk of her latest conquest, a flashy new BMW, is a different breed entirely.

Daniel Panterro was certain he was going to die. Instead, by a stroke of luck, he was beaten to within an inch of his life and left for dead. But if he’s having a bad day, Sam’s day is about to get way worse. Danny knows he hasn’t seen the last of the vicious drug runners who kidnapped him from protective custody. His only recourse is to take his pretty savior hostage and force her to help him. There’s no going back for Sam and her four-yearold son, Tyler. They’re in way too deep.

With ruthless killers stalking their trail, Sam’s only choice is to trust this handsome, menacing stranger. But as she relinquishes control, Sam feels an unmistakable desire. Could she be tempted by Danny, who seems intent on protecting her and Tyler from even his own darkest secrets? And what is the price of falling in love with a man who operates on the edge of danger — her heart, her life . . . or both?

Merry Christmas, Alex Cross [Hardcover]



I've finished "Merry Christmas, Alex Cross" by James Patterson.

Product Description

It's Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross has been called out to catch someone who's robbing his church's poor box. That mission behind him, Alex returns home to celebrate with Bree, Nana, and his children. The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again -- a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. Away from his own family on the most precious of days, Alex calls upon every ounce of his training, creativity, and daring to save another family. Alex risks everything -- and he may not make it back alive on this most sacred of family days. Alex Cross is a hero for our time, and never more so than in this story of family, action, and the deepest moral choices. MERRY CHRISTMAS, ALEX CROSS will be a holiday classic for years to come.

My Review:

On Christmas Eve Alex Cross is called to negotiate with a crazy and drugged up lawyer who has taken his ex-wife, their children, her new husband and the senator's wife hostage.  His life is spiraling out of control and him blames everyone for his loss.

The second story deals with Hala the terrorist that got away from the previous book.  She has come back to America to wipe out millions of people.  Alex works with the FBI to try to stop this mad women with dogs.

This book was very fast paced and before I knew it I was finished!  It was pretty intense especially the first story!

The First Prophet (A Bishop Files Novel) [Mass Market Paperback]


Within the FBI, there exists a team of psychics whose powers cannot be denied. But these agents are feared — by a cabal of conspirators with only one weapon: to blind the psychics to the evils all around them.

Months ago Sarah Gallagher woke from a coma with psychic abilities she couldn’t control. They changed her life and cost her the man she loved. And now, someone is playing games with Sarah’s mind.

It begins with Sarah’s home being destroyed by fire — an act of arson that draws novelist Tucker Mackenzie into Sarah’s confidence. But he has other reasons for pursuing a woman who can see what others can’t. So does a mysterious enemy intent on eliminating Sarah, and everyone she cares about. Because it’s only a matter of time before her visions lead her and Tucker to a secret many will kill to hide. Only then will they begin to discover the scope of a terrifying conspiracy so deep and complex they can trust almost no one.

Running Wild: The Men from Battle Ridge [Mass Market Paperback]

In book 1 of this steamy new contemporary Western romance series by two blockbuster authors, a cowboy and a woman on the run take a stand and fight for love.

Carlin Reed lives in fear, off the grid, moving from place to place. So Battle Ridge, Wyoming, a small town in the middle of nowhere, seems like a good place to lie low for a while. But after becoming cook and housekeeper to cattle rancher Zeke Decker, Carlin suspects that she’s made her first mistake. Rugged, sexy, and too distracting for his own good, Zeke is pure temptation mixed with something deep and primal that makes Carlin feel almost safe. Soon things are getting way too hot in the kitchen.

Zeke doesn’t challenge Carlin’s terms: cash, dead bolts, and no questions. It is easy to see that she’s a woman in trouble. Problem is, he’s so blindsided by his attraction to her he can’t think straight. Zeke tries to stay all business, no complications — but that game plan is sabotaged the second Carlin gets under his skin. And when her terrifying past follows her to the ranch, Carlin faces a heartbreaking choice: run away from the man she loves, or put him in the crosshairs of a madman.

Slow Heat (Bounty Hunter 5) [Mass Market Paperback]

Slow Heat

Lorie O'Clare


As a new trainee at the King family’s bounty-hunting agency, Micah Jones is trying to keep his cool. But his latest assignment — to bring in a night-club owner suspected of money-laundering — heats up fast when he meets the “brains” of the outfit: an irresistibly beautiful bookkeeper who’s resisting arrest. So Micah takes her into custody — by taking her into his powerful arms and not letting go…

Held for questioning but released by police, Maggie O’Malley is still a person of interest — to Micah. And Maggie is interested, too — in his services. With his iron-hard muscles and tough-guy exterior, the Harley-riding bounty hunter is just the man Maggie needs to track down the real crook at the club. A slow-burning attraction ignites a firestorm of insatiable desire — until the secrets of Micah’s past are exposed. Explosive passion now must prove stronger than a history so terrifying it might haunt them forever …

Killer Librarian [Mass Market Paperback]

FILE “M” FOR MURDER . . . .

Champion of the mystery section at a small-town Minnesota library, Karen Nash is about to embark on a dream trip to London — a literary tour inspired by every murderous intrigue, wily suspect, and ingenious crime found in the pages of the British mysteries that she devours. But she’s clueless why the love of her mid-life, Dave, would dump her hours before takeoff — until she spies him at the airport with a young honey on his arm!

After touching ground in the hallowed homeland of Christie, Sayers, and Peters, she checks into a cozy B & B run by charming bibliophile Caldwell Perkins. Soon she’s spilling tears in her pint at the corner pub, sharing her heartbreak saga with a stranger. That night, a B & B guest drops out of circulation — permanently.

With the meticulous attention to detail that makes her a killer librarian, Karen sleuths her way through her own real-life mystery — in which library science meets the art of murder.

Stalked (Lucy Kincaid Novels) [Mass Market Paperback]



I've finished "Stalked" the book in her Lucy Kincaid series by Allison Brennan.

Product Description

Stalked

Allison Brennan Lucy Kincaid returns — as a killer’s obsession.


IN THE GAME OF CRIME

A new trainee at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Lucy Kincaid has already seen more than her share of murder and mayhem. Still reeling from the sex-crime case that sealed her reputation, she’s found a true friend and mentor in Agent Tony Presidio. No matter what goes down at the Bureau, Tony’s got her back — until he’s called to New York to help investigate the murder of a reporter with ties to Lucy.

NEVER PLAY THE VICTIM

But the reporter may not be the first victim of a patient killer with a penchant for revenge, and she’s definitely not the last. Connections between closed cases, a missing person, and Tony himself lead Lucy to fear for those she cares for most. When the FBI is rocked by the death of one of their own, Lucy seeks the help of her boyfriend, private investigator Sean Rogan, to help put together the puzzle — and puts her career in jeopardy. But the harder she pushes for answers, the clearer the truth becomes: There’s a killer inside Quantico. Watching her every move. Waiting to kill again …

ISBN-13: 978-1250005960


My Review:

Lucy Kincaid is finally a new FBI trainee at FBI Academy in Quantico.  If you have been reading from the first book her first application was denied but she on her second one she is admitted.  She is enjoying her training class but she knows she is being watched because of her past (kidnapped and then her rape and torture broadcasted on the web).  One of her trainers obviously doesn't like her for some reason only her sister-in-law Kate knows.

A reporter she has ties too is murdered so the FBI and police ask Lucy for her help and assistance in their investigation.  The reporter Rosemary Weber wrote a book about a case where twelve-year-old Rachel is kidnapped from her bedroom, raped and killed.  Her parents lie to the police since they were hosting a swingers party.  The case is sensationalized as a true-crime' bestseller and the family disintegrates soon after.

Now the author and anyone associated with the case are being killed off in inventive ways.  Sean assists Lucy by trying to keep her safe and to try to locate original victim's younger brother Peter.

This was a very fast paced well written compelling read with psychotic killers.  We see Lucy and Seth's relationship has deepen and she has become a confident, smart, intuitive and brave young women.

We see the return of beloved characters, FBI profiler Hans Vigo, FBI agents Noah Armstrong and Suzanne Madeaux, Assistant Director Rick Stockton, Kate Donovan and brothers Dillon and Patrick.

Notorious Nineteen: A Stephanie Plum Novel [Hardcover]


Product Description

The hardcover edition of Notorious Nineteen contains Morelli and Ranger stickers inside!

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don’t just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don’t do what Tiki tells you to do.

After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape . . . or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive. Since the hospital staff’s lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it’s hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working side by side with Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money — or maybe just desperate — Stephanie accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor Ranger from a deadly Special Forces adversary. While Stephanie is notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she bargained for this time around. Then again — a little food poisoning, some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid’s dress with an excess of taffeta never killed anyone . . . or did they? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a paycheck, she’ll have to remember: No guts, no glory . . . .

Sleep No More: An Eve Duncan Novel [Hardcover]



I've finished "Sleep No More" the book in her Eve Duncan series by Iris Johansen.

Product Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a new thriller that will have Eve Duncan questioning everything she thought she knew about her family and her past

One woman held captive for decades …

Another one freed by the truth …

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan knows what it's like to be haunted by the past. For years after her daughter Bonnie was stolen from her, she fought for closure. But now as she's striving to begin anew, she can't shake the feeling that something terrible is about to happen — or maybe already has. When her mother, Sandra, asks for help in finding a missing friend named Beth Avery, Eve is sure that she's hiding something. It’s odd that Sandra would get involved at all, and the fact that she adamantly refuses to go to the police for help reinforces Eve’s suspicions that something is very wrong.

Eve learns that Beth has been locked away in a mental hospital for years, which makes it even harder to understand how she could have disappeared. As Sandra reluctantly reveals small pieces of the truth about Beth's identity, Eve is shocked to discover that their lives are strangely entwined, and Beth's disappearance now puts them all in grave danger. Desperate, Eve enlists a secret weapon to pick up Beth's trail: rogue profiler, Kendra Michaels. With an uncanny ability to detect clues and solve puzzles, Kendra begins to uncover the bizarre circumstances of Beth's escape from what should have been the safety of her hospital room. Beth is on the run, and as her mind clears -- detoxing from the drugs that have held her prisoner -- she begins to see the threads of a twisted plot within the powerful Avery family, threatening to destroy Beth and anyone else who might jeopardize the high-stakes game that is already in play.

My Review:

In this book Eve is content and happy now that she has finally discovered the body of her daughter and who killed her.  Then Eve's mother Sandra calls asking Joe for help in locating Beth Avery a patient at a mental institute who has run away.

The book opens with a hired assassin creeping through a mental institute hallway into Beth Avery's room determined to kill her by poison.  He believes he sees a body in the bed but boy was he surprised when she spring at him from behind and got some great jabs at him.  She manages to outmaneuver him and escape the ward with the help of someone from the inside and specifically following his instructions.  The assassin had no idea what he was up against because he was told she was heavily sedated and acted like a zombie.  Now the assassin wants to get revenge on Beth by capturing, torturing and then finally kill her.

Eve finds out that Beth is older half-sister who was born two years before her.  He mom was a wild child in her young teens (14 years old) and was partying hard when she meet Richard Avery who was around 20 years old.  He didn't like using an protection and one day she found herself pregnant with his child.  Her mother went to his family who made both of them sign papers to give custody of the baby to them in exchange for her freedom.  Sandra has always keep an eye on Beth all these years and admits to Eve that she used her as a way to get back at her mom.

As Eve and Joe investigate further they find out that Beth has been in the institute since she was 17 years old  after a skiing accident and someone wants her silenced forever.  They find out that it's Nelda Avery wants her dead and will do anything to make sure that happens.   When Joe enlists the help of Kendra Michaels Bonnie appears to Eve wanting her to connect to Beth by helping Sandra.  Both Eve and Beth start dreaming and participating in each others dreams.

Nelda Avery is viscous, manipulative, devious and smart and her one goal is to make sure her son Rick becomes President and she would do anything to pave the way even resort to murder if need too!

Notorious Nineteen: A Stephanie Plum Novel [Hardcover]


Product Description

The hardcover edition of Notorious Nineteen contains Morelli and Ranger stickers inside!

New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is certain of three truths: People don’t just vanish into thin air. Never anger old people. And don’t do what Tiki tells you to do.

After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape . . . or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive. Since the hospital staff’s lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it’s hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working side by side with Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money — or maybe just desperate — Stephanie accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor Ranger from a deadly Special Forces adversary. While Stephanie is notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she bargained for this time around. Then again — a little food poisoning, some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid’s dress with an excess of taffeta never killed anyone . . . or did they? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a paycheck, she’ll have to remember: No guts, no glory . . . .

Run the Risk (Hqn) [Mass Market Paperback]



I've finished reading "Run the Risk" the 1st book in her Love Under Cover series by Lori Foster.

Product Description

When Detective Logan Riske goes undercover to find Pepper Yates, a potential link to his best friend's unsolved murder, he vows to gain her cooperation by any means necessary. But the elusive beauty is more suspicious — and in far more danger — than he expected. And the last thing Logan needs is to start caring for her ….
Pepper has spent years dodging the corrupt club owner who will stop at nothing to keep her silenced. She can trust no one, not even the handsome new "construction worker" who's moved in next door. The heat between them is undeniable. But will surrendering to passion bring her the safety she so desires—or will her feelings for Logan draw them both into a killer's crosshairs?

ISBN-13: 978-0373776955


My Review:

Detective Logan Risk goes undercover as a construction worker to get close to Sue Meeks (aka Pepper Yates) who he believes has a connection to the unsolved killing of his best friend Jack Carmin.  Sue Meeks appears to be timid, frumpy and shy and seems to be sheltered by her older brother Rowdy Meeks.  We don't know why she is being sheltered or much about her life until later in the story.  Rowdy is hard to find so he decides to stick close to Sue but he never thought he would start having feelings for her.

Logan also has to contend with corruption among his job department and isn't sure who can trust.  When his cover is blown Pepper uses steamy unconventional means to get back at him.  Dash Logan's brother and his partner Reese also have major roles in the relationship and storyline.

The romance between Logan and Pepper was very hot and steamy (it had a slow start) once it got started.  It was funny and humorous when we though Pepper was this meek, mild and shy person and her interactions with Logan during this time.  I was laughing at the way she would blush and stare at him.

Soon after Sam takes on the case he is plagued by terrible nightmares. Only, in these nightmares, when he dreams of death, people die. Realizing that he is out of his depth, Sam enlists the help of his friend, Bob Sizemore. Bob is oddly insightful about the supernatural and deeply suspicious of big business and the government. Sam and Bob soon discover that a major German pharmaceutical company has been using human guinea pigs to test a highly addictive and dangerous derivative of cocaine first developed in Nazi Germany. Combined with ancient herbs provided by a Voodoo priest, the substance has become increasingly addictive and dangerous.

After Thomas’s head shows up in Sam’s refrigerator, suspicion naturally falls on him. Now he has no choice but to face the forces of evil head on. But how do a small-town lawyer and a computer geek defeat an enemy with the power to enslave mankind?

But that’s only the first in a series of surprises when Kath returns to the small town of Blue Plum, Tennessee, to settle her grandmother’s affairs.

There’s been a murder, and it turns out her grandmother was the prime suspect. Before she can begin to clear Ivy’s name, Kath encounters a looming presence in the form of a gloomy ghost. It turns out the specter has just as much interest in solving the murder as Kath.

She also has to contend with a ghostly spectra of a crying woman and saying, "Em, why did I kill you? and another spectra of man who helps her with her sleuthing.

This cozy was full of interesting characters, set in a small town, witty sayings and the engaging banter between Kath and her ghostly man.

NYPD Red [Hardcover]



I've finished "NYPD Red" by James Patterson.

Product Description
It's the start of Hollywood on Hudson, and New York City is swept up in the glamour. Every night, the red carpet rolls out for movie stars arriving at premieres in limos; the most exclusive restaurants close for private parties for wealthy producers and preeminent directors; and thousands of fans gather with the paparazzi, hoping to catch a glimpse of the most famous and beautiful faces in the world. With this many celebrities in town, special task force NYPD Red is on high alert - and they can't afford to make a single mistake.

Then a world-renowned producer fatally collapses at his power breakfast, and top NYPD Red Detective Zach Jordan is the first one on the scene. Zach works with his beautiful new partner, Detective Kylie MacDonald - who also happens to be his ex-girlfriend - to discover who the murderer might be. But this is only the beginning: the most brutal, public, and horrifyingly spectacular crimes they've ever encountered are about to send all of New York into chaos, putting NYPD Red on the ropes.

Zach and Kylie know there's no way of telling what a killer this deranged will do next. With the whole world watching, they have to find a way to stop a psychopath who has scripted his finale down to the last explosive detail.

My Review:

A special task force is set up to protect the rich and famous movie stars, movie directors and sport stars.  Zach Jordan's partner has been recently injured and he is temporarily assigned Kylie MacDonald a former girlfriend and they both went to the academy together.  Now she is happily married to movie screenwriter.

New York is hosting a "Hollywood on the Hudson" to entice producers, movie stars, screenwriters to come and make their movies there.  One morning a very famous movie producer dies while at a breakfast meeting and the bodies start piling up.

As the two NYPD Red players investigate they realize they are chasing a villain that wants to make the  top story on the front page and to squash "Hollywood on the Hudson".  At the same time Zach as always been in love with Kylie but he's really trying to start a relationship with another women when he realizes Kylie isn't in love with him.

I hate to admit but I had trouble reading this one to the end because Zach seems to be obsessed with Kylie and even at the end he was still in love with her.  Otherwise Zach and Kylie are both very compelling characters and both are good at their jobs.
