    I love this series. This story was fast paced and very exciting. Plus they brought Stefan back and introduced Azeel to Mercy. I highly recommend and can't wait for the next one

    Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

    Stay with this one. It gets much better as you go. I look forward to seeing more books by Lucy March. The characters were interesting and the story begs for a sequel.

    Tall, Dark & Dead introduced Garnet Lacey, a bookstore manager/witch who accidentally unleashed the dark goddess Lilith on Vatican assassins. Now she has other things to worry about-like pesky frat boy zombies, a gorgeous FBI agent hot on her trail, love spells gone wrong, and keeping her vampire boyfriend a safe distance from her vampire ex-boyfriend. There's just no rest for this Wiccan...

    Story

    I wasn't expecting Shakespeare, but the plot left a lot to be desired. I couldn't bring myself to care about the Zombies and the ending got wrapped up way too easily. I didn't hate this one but I doubt that I will bother with the next one in the series.

    Two dead bodies changed the course of my life that fall. One of them I knew and the other I'd never laid eyes on until I saw him in the morgue. The first was a local PI of suspect reputation. He'd been gunned down near the beach at Santa Teresa. It looked like a robbery gone bad. The other was on the beach six weeks later. He'd been sleeping rough. Probably homeless. No identification. A slip of paper with Millhone's name and number was in his pants pocket. The coroner asked her to come to the morgue to see if she could ID him.

Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it. Complication One: The artifacts are lost somewhere in vampire Jane Jameson’s occult bookshop. Complication Two: Her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, keeps turning up half-naked at the strangest times....

    Story

    I hated this book. I got as far as chapter 7 and decided my time was too valuable to waste one more second on it. The narrator's decision to make the female protagonist sound like Marilyn Monroe on sleeping pills was only overshadowed by the continual use of every hackneyed phrase you can think of to express lust. Really, I can't describe how silly this book was.

    When Andie tries to gain closure with her ex-husband, he asks one final favor of her. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans. When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared. Carter and Alice aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. Complicating matters is Andie’s fiancé’s suspicion that this is all a plan by North to get Andie back.

    This was a little far fetched at first but got better as it went on. I really liked the narrator and the story got better and better. I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys the paranormal, sci-fi romance genre. If there is such a thing.

    The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

    Story

    This was another winner in the Hollows series. The narrator was great as always, the story line was good. I really liked the development of the relationship between Racheal and Trent. It just seemed to take a very long time to get everything done this time. This book could have been a couple chapters shorter and been no worse for it. But it was still a really good part of the Hollows series.

    After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad - because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard. He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long.
