    A US Army Special Forces team carrying sterilized weapons and unmarked uniforms is on its way to Colombia. The mission: conduct covert, unilateral raids to destroy cocaine processing laboratories. Of course nothing is as it seems especially once the CIA gets involved. Throw in an Israeli mercenary, betrayal and double-dealing in Washington and the team soon finds itself wondering what the real mission is.

    Eyes of the Hammer was read out of order, or actually it was read to me via the Whispersync application with my Kindle Keyboard. I do enjoy the Audible offerings, listening when in the car, and reading when in private, but this one was enjoyed totally in audiobook format. I have been obtaining these books out of sequence, but each stands alone, and when I read one that should have been read before, it still makes sense and enhances my understanding of those read previously. The author has created strong story lines that are believable, strong character development, and lots of action with some mysteries thrown in. What more can one ask for?

    A war beyond time. An enemy beyond space. A thriller beyond your wildest dreams. Three areas on the Earth's surface defy explanation: the Bermuda Triangle, the Devil's Sea of Japan, and a small region of Cambodia .Near the end of of the Vietnam War, Green Beret Eric Dane led a team of operatives deep into Cambodia and encountered a strange fog near the legendary city of Angkor Kol Ker. His entire team disappears, attacked by strange creatures out of the fog. Only Dane survives to return.

    Purchased the e-book and the Whispersync audio version, which I listened to while commuting to work. Thoroughly enjoyable, fast paced action with some science fiction mixed in. Enjoyed this very much and found the concept intriguing, especially since I live in Florida and have grown up hearing of many incidents involving the Bermuda Triangle. I have enjoyed Bob Mayer’s other military book offerings and thought this might be interesting and it was. The gates and potential for serial stories made me think of Star Gate, both the movie and the TV series, but on another level.

    Gabby Sullivan learns in college that some things are impossible to control, and whenever life has spun out of control bad things seem to happen. She promises herself that she'll stay a safe distance from the top three culprits: Sex, Love, Relationships. But some things are beyond control…Gabby handles her mom's death and brother's sudden abandonment just about as well as anyone could at the age of twelve. Left feeling alone, she finishes high school, developing a bit of a wild streak, and lives like there's no tomorrow. That is until an illness stops her in her tracks.

    Story

    This is one of those books that you can stop and start and not feel like you have missed a beat but still interesting enough that you will pick it up and continue to find out the rest of the story. It is part 1 in a series, so there are additional characters to be developed and stories yet to be explored, with a bit of a cliff hanger at the end, but the initial story at least seemed resolved.

    Daniel Byrne is an investigator for the Vatican’s secretive Office of the Devil’s Advocate - the department that scrutinizes miracle claims. Over 10 years and 721 cases, not one miracle he tested has proved true. But case #722 is different; Daniel’s estranged uncle, a crooked TV evangelist, has started speaking in tongues - and accurately predicting the future. Daniel knows Reverend Tim Trinity is a con man. Could Trinity also be something more? The evangelist himself is baffled by his newfound power.

    Off the court, tennis star Jason Cartwright's playboy image is taking a public beating. On the court, he's down 40-love. A knee injury is shutting down his game, and the paparazzi are splashing his love life on every magazine. A comeback is in order, but the makeover he needs to save his faltering career is in the hands of the woman he loved and left 15 years ago. While single-mom Izzy Connors sees people for who they really are through the lens of her camera, even without it, she knows Jason isn't the star he appears to be.

    Have come to appreciate Mr. Mayer's stories, but this one struck a cord, as it is intriguing enough and one can't help but wonder, as scientists work more with DNA and genetic engineering, if something like this could not be happening somewhere. Therefore, the premise might be plausible. Personally, I was glad that Holly was the ultimate hero.

    RITA Award finalist and Christy Award winner Julie Klassen delivers historical romances brimming with the eloquence and intensity of Jane Austen. In an abandoned gatehouse on an old estate, Mariah Aubrey lives in seclusion. She supports herself by writing novels in secret—at a time when such writing is considered improper and unladylike. Soon the wealthy and ambitious Captain Bryant leases the estate and is intrigued by the beautiful girl in the gatehouse.

    Story

    This starts out a little slow, in keeping with the genre as there are multiple story lines to set up for this rather intriguing story. It has a lot of depth and detail, and some twists and turns. I kept returning to it and as time went on, did not want it to end. This is one to take the time to enjoy. Perhaps there will be a sequel, as there could be a few directions in which this could story line could be developed. I sure hope so.

    The New World tells of Viola's journey to the New World, brilliantly capturing the hope and fear of settlers in search of a new life. Patrick Ness says that he wrote it "as a huge and deeply-felt thank you to readers. I've had so many questions about Viola and what her life was like before that I couldn't resist the opportunity to reveal just a little bit extra.

    It was meant to be a teaser, and it does that well. Yes, I will consider reading and/or listening to the first in the series by this author. I do like sci fi, and this premiss would certainly allow the story line to develop in many different directions.

    Mother, wife, private investigator... vampire. Six years ago federal agent Samantha Moon was the perfect wife and mother, your typical soccer mom with the minivan and suburban home. Then the unthinkable happens, an attack that changes her life forever. And forever is a very long time for a vampire. Now the world at large thinks Samantha has developed a rare skin disease, a disease which forces her to quit her day job and stay out of the light of the sun.

    What did you love best about Moon Dance?

    I enjoy most of his books but had reservations about another vampire book. This one is different, that's for sure. Not what you would expect, but an entertaining who done it, in keeping with his investigation background. I found it enjoyable reading and I like being able to go between book and audiobook with Whispersync, listing to the audiobook when commuting in the car. I am going to download a few more of this series and enjoy them now!

    Three days before her 24th birthday, Katherine Gregory receives a letter from her deceased mother.

Also three days before her 24th birthday, a new love interest comes knocking, and her first love has returned. Neither man is what he seems, and Katherine may have to choose between them. And three days before her 24th birthday, Katherine must decide if this is all real, or if the strange visions she's been having are just a figment of her imagination.

    Would you listen to Broken: A Paranormal Romance again? Why?

    Remembering thinking it was interesting that a man wrote a book with the primary character being female, and did a fairly good job of it. A nice twist with some refreshing take on fairies and the like.
