    Lizzy Tucker’s once normal life as a pastry chef in Salem, Massachusetts, turns upside down as she battles both sinister forces and an inconvenient attraction to her unnaturally talented but off-limits partner, Diesel. When Harvard University English professor and dyed-in-the-wool romantic Gilbert Reedy is mysteriously murdered and thrown off his fourth-floor balcony, Lizzy and Diesel take up his 20-year quest for the Luxuria Stone, an ancient relic believed by some to be infused with the power of lust.

    This Jersey girl hits hard - 24/7. The blockbuster Stephanie Plum series continues with Hardcore Twenty-Four from number one New York Times best-selling Janet Evanovich.

    Natasha says: "No laughs, no fun"
    "Fun with Stephanie"
    Overall

    This is another romp with Stephanie and the gang. As usual msg. Evanovich keeps your interest until the end with the capers that run through this story. Always something that doesn't quite for Stephanie. This story has her dealing with zombies, snakes and protesters. Grandma has another crisis and Stephanie only ruins a couple cars . Very fun book. Can't wait for the next installment.

    Fifteen months ago Detective Lindsay Boxer's life was perfect - she had a beautiful child and a doting husband, Joe, who helped her catch a criminal who'd brazenly detonated a bomb in downtown San Francisco, killing 25 people. But Joe wasn't everything that Lindsay thought he was, and she's still reeling from his betrayal as a wave of mysterious and possibly unnatural heart attacks claims seemingly unrelated victims across San Francisco.

    Mary says: "So disappointing!!"
    "Boom!!!!"
    Overall

    Love the women's murder club even though in this story they didn't work together to solve this case as much as in previous stories. We have a different kind of killer this time as boxer and Conklin work to find and convict a very wily advertisers who hides his identity until the very end. A bomb opens and closes this story with a real bang.

Kate and kernan travel and collect the "keys" to correct the timelines. This story will keep you interested until the very end.

Kate’s only ally is Kiernan, who also carries the time-traveling gene.

    Harry Blue is the top sex crimes investigator in her department. She's a seasoned pro who's seen it all. But even she didn't see this coming: her own brother arrested for the grisly murders of three beautiful young women. Harry's been sent to a makeshift town in a desolate landscape - a world full of easy money, plenty of illegal ways to spend it, and a ragtag collection of transient characters who thrive on the fringes of society.

    Kathy says: "Not A Lindsay Boxer!"
    "A twisted life"
    Overall

    This was another great read from James Patterson. I really liked Det. Harry Blue and her partner Whit. There was a lot of characters in this story that you knew who could be the killer but the reveal in the last few chapters made you really want to kill the guy yourself. Looking forward to the next Harry Blue story.

    This is the second installment of this pIe of cop partners. One human and one canine. This story doesn't disappoint. They work through their daily duties as they are trained ex to do. Again murder raises its ugly head and tracking the killer turns in to a race against time. Thoroughly enjoyed it and looking forward to the next adventure.
