Tracey’s Week in Books – Week 11, 2013

 This week started with a thriller by Greg Iles called Dead Sleep. Wow that was good, see my full review here, but suffice to say I want to read more by this author, and I’d give it 4.5 stars.

Feeling like a bit of romance I picked up a Mills and Boon I had sitting about called The Surprise of her life by Helen R. Myers, it was the story of ex-neighbours who moved away when their respective spouses married each other, only to find they had taken up residence in the same town! This was okay, satisfied the romance craving – I would give it 2.5 stars.

The next book plucked from the pile was an Erica Spindler one – Forbidden Fruit. I did not think this was as good as some of her other books. There was a lot of background to the characters built up during the book but it was chapter 38 before we got to the present day. While the back story was very relevant to the overall story, it resulted in the actual thriller aspect of the book being very rushed and almost an afterthought to what was going on with the characters. I also felt there were some loose ends not tied up. Having said that it was a good read just not what I have come to expect from this author – 3 stars.

It was a quiet week for reading this week but my last read of the week was As  You wish by Eloisa James – this includes the novella Seduced by a Pirate and With this Kiss parts 1, 2 and 3. I absolutely loved this, keep an eye out for my 5 star review appearing later this week.

I seem to have been very busy with all sorts of stuff this week leaving me with little reading time!

I'm a 40 something avid reader of pretty much anything, have 2 kids, a cat and a husband along with a 2 seater convertible (mid life crisis car!). While I read pretty much anything I particularly enjoy paranormal romance, historical romance and general romance - guess I am sucker for a happy ending.
