    In American Vampire, the sequel to Vampire Moon, private investigator Samantha Moon receives a heartbreaking phone call from a very unlikely source: a five-year-old girl who's been missing for three months. Now on the hunt, Samantha will use her considerable resources, including her growing supernatural abilities, to locate the missing girl before it's too late.

    Would you try another book from J. R. Rain and/or Dina Pearlman?

    I would most likely try the 4th book in the series, but will not finish Book 3 and I'm no quitter! I downloaded it when I purchased the third book. I'm hoping for storyline improvement


    Has American Vampire turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not at all


    What about Dina Pearlman’s performance did you like?

    Her performance was fine


    Any additional comments?

    Here is a woman who has been a vampire for over a year (a former government agent) and who has been maintaining her work at home mom life. All of a sudden she loses her mind, takes justice into her own hands, divulges her utmost secrets to a complete stranger AND although she states multiple times she knows her son is VERY sick, leaves him with her sister because "there is a little girl out there" who needs her! Seriously? I admired her for having common sense and a working brain. It appears both have failed her in Book 3.

    She was one of the most sought after women in the world. A top model who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted - even another woman's man. And now she was dead, the victim of a brutal murder.

    Devin Lyle has recently returned to the Salem area, but her timing couldn't be worse. Soon after she moved into the eighteenth-century cabin she inherited from her great-aunt Mina - her "crazy" great-aunt, who spoke to the dead - a woman was murdered nearby. Craig Rockwell - known as Rocky - is a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI's team of paranormal investigators. He never got over finding a friend dead in the woods. Now another body's been found in those same woods, not far from the home of a woman named Devin Lyle.

    Heather Graham has used the same story with a different setting for many of the books in this series. At this point, I've lost interest...

    Who is J. P. Beaumont? A very human Seattle police detective who is hardened but hopeful, dispirited but diligent - the kind of cop who has experienced personal tragedy but still remains faithful to his duty. When J.P. Beaumont and his new partner, Sue Danielson, are assigned the murder of an elderly woman torched to death in her bed, Beaumont finds himself distracted by Sue's difficulties at home.

    What did you like best about Breach of Duty? What did you like least?

    There were multiple story lines, as there always are with J. P. Beaumont books. My least favorite, Kramer, including the extremely annoying voice the narrator uses for him.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. A. Jance again?

    Maybe. If Beau stays retired or accepts the job offer at the end of this book, I might consider it.


    Which character – as performed by Gene Engene – was your favorite?

    I enjoy the way he portrays Beau.


    Did Breach of Duty inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    A nemesis is expected in murder mysteries but to make that nemesis an ass-kissing, inept, politically incorrect co-worker gets old very fast. I'm pretty much done with Kramer and the rewards he gets, book after book after book, for sneaking around, spreading rumors and being a total jerk. Get rid of him!

    Detective Alex Cross is a family man at heart--nothing matters more to him than his children, his grandmother, and his wife Bree. His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex's strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson's career.

    What would have made Cross My Heart better?

    To have the entire story in one book!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cross My Heart?

    When Alex receives photos that appear to show his family members' murders


    Any additional comments?

    I was not happy to discover, at the end of the book, that James Patterson had decided to publish half the story. Mr. Patterson publishes multiple books each year and I cannot believe that he had to rush the publication of this book for monetary reasons. Honestly, I would not have purchased the book had I know it's not the whole story. This type of publishing, especially without informing the purchaser, is a ploy for twice the residuals for one story line. DO NOT buy this book until Mr. Patterson gets around to completing the story.
