I have really enjoyed this series, so far. However, this book includes to much background information from previous books and the plot is incredibly predictable. One of the reasons I continued to read this series is because I was looking forward to seeing the characters grow and develop through their relationships and actions. Gin started the series as a distinct, layered and complicated character. In this book she is none of these things. In fact she loses almost any credibility as a character that she had. She is this mysterious shadowy assassin with magical powers, but is seems that by the end of the book the only person who doesn't know that is her nemesis Mab Monroe. For a shadowy assassin she doesn't do overly much to protect her secret. That being said, the one redeeming factor of the book was the whole situation with Bria and Owen. This book is about her Gin's tangled emotional threads. About her love for Grayson, love she finally accepts and about her estranged sister and the difficult but hopeful reunion between the two siblings. Unfortunately, Estep ended up getting tangled in her own writing. While the reunion was nicely done as a whole it happened 200 pages too late to save the book. Despite all that I can't say that I hated the book. I didn't find it terribly interesting or exciting and I skipped a lot of pages. In my opinion it is the weakest in an otherwise solid and intriguing series. I will read the next book in hopes that it is much better. Although it deserves one star, I'm giving it 2 based on the strength of the series and my hope for its future.
This book was entertaining, action-packed and kept you turning pages. Abby and her friends get invovled in some silly hijinks in Vegas. This book has a fast pace that will keep you turning the pages to see what's going to happen next.
I love this series. It is one of the most creative and entertaining series in the urban fanatsy genre. I strongly recommend this book.
Meg is busy with apple harvest when her mother shows up unannouced. She has to balance harvesting apples, her parents and murder. This is a very entertaining book. The intrusion of her parents and the murder is very realistic. I don't know whythe state police bothers with investigating because Meg manages to beat them to the truth. I wish there was a different narrator. This one does a terrible job. Sometimes Seth has an accent sometimes he doesn't. Plus everyone sounds old.
This is another good addition to the Orchard Mysteries. I thought I new the killer but was shocked at the final outcome. I don't like the narrator for this series. I think she puts emphasizes in the wrong places and sometimes her voice is to nasal. I was disappointed that the recipes were not included at the end of the book. I might get the Kindle version for the next book because of it.
This is another good addition to the Orchid Mystery Series. Meg stumbles on to a body on her property and once again she has to solve the crime. This story is very entertaing and I like the way that the characters are developing. I'm disappointed that the recipes were not included, but I have been told that the technical team is looking into it.
I have listened to all of the books in the Faye Longchamp series. Each is better than the one before. The characters and plot are likeable and realistic. The plot flows at a good pace so you never get bored. I strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a little history mixed in with their mysteries.
This book was not for me. I started it because it was $1.99 after getting the free Kindle addition. I wish I would have stuck with just the free Kindle version. The lead character, Lily, was annoying and whiny. Bill was vulgar and obnoxious. The dialogue was anything but funny. The plot made me roll my eyes several times. I don't have any thing good to say about this book.
A Vision in Velvet is a great read. As always Lily saves the day. But this time she steps on some big toes to do it. I can't wait for the next book.
Gwen continues to learn about herself and her abilities. She simply can't get a break. This book starts right were the first finished. It was fast paced and entertaining. It was a great read.
The main problem with this book was the lead character Meg. She's professionally and emotionally immature throughout the book. She's desperate to keep her job but then doesn't meet her deadline. She crushes on her boss like she's twelve and pushes away a viable relationship with her best friend, Matt. Even though she pushes him away she can't help but notice how physically fit he is. It took me a while to get in to the story and but it turned out to be ok. I will probably get the next book.
