I finally got deep into the TBR pile and pulled out Harlan Coben's The Woods. I've been looking forward to that one since picking it up last Christmas and it did not disappoint. Harlan's a master -- his plots are so fast paced they're un-put-downable. I ignored everyone and every thing -- the kids, the hubby, the cooking, the laundry -- nothing was done until I turned the final page. If you're looking for a break from romance, I highly recommend this author. Any of his books will do, though if you're a newbie to Cobenland, Tell No One is the perfect introduction.
If you haven't read Red Garnier's latest Ellora's Cave Exotika, Seven Sinners, your in for one sexy ride! Ms Garnier's talent for mixing fever-hot eroticism with deep emotion hits new heights. For a quick story, her characters are surprising well-drawn and multi-faceted. How does she cram so much into these quickies? Maybe a 'how-to' book is in her future ;)
I'm waiting for the sequel so I can find out more about the very intiguing Anna. And there'd better be a follow-up, Red! It's not nice to keep your readers wondering ;)
This week I look forward to Kimber Chin's debut novel from Champagne Books, Breach of Trust, Debra Glass's Gatekeeper, and Belle Scarlet's The Woodsman. Btw - Belle is holding a contest and the grand prize is a Kindle! Go see her website for details.
Another site to check out is our very own Julia - whose been doing wonderful book reviews for her Thursday Thirteens. Informative and comprehensive, Julia is doing a great service to her featured authors as her TT readers are adding heaps to the TBR piles.
