RITA and National Reader’s Choice Award nominee Patricia Thayer crafts the touching tale of one couple’s struggle to save their storybook romance. Kira and Trace McKane found bliss when they tied the knot, but their marriage went cold as no children entered their lives.

The only thing that kept me reading was Jack Garrett. I was so sick of the insecurity of the heroine that kept on regardless. Her husband WAS pig headed and stubborn but he kept telling her how much he wanted to be with her. But her messages were so mixed I would have been just as crazy as Trace was.

This book started out with strong characters. An cocky guy but able to back it up. A spunky heroine. Fun and sexy. I enjoyed it right up until Penny started ducking and playing head games with Bash. She just lost me toward the end. She just gave up, dropped out, wimped out. She treated her "friend"pretty bad without even giving him a chance. I know we need something to bring in the drama but stay true to the character and it would a great book. One I'd like to reread. It's a good book. Worth the read.

In The Keeper of Lost Causes, Jussi Adler-Olsen introduced Detective Carl Mørck, a deeply flawed, brilliant detective newly assigned to run Department Q, the home of Copenhagen’s coldest cases. The result wasn’t what Mørck - or readers - expected, but by the opening of Adler-Olsen’s shocking, fast-paced follow-up, Mørck is satisfied with the notion of picking up long-cold leads. So he’s naturally intrigued when a closed case lands on his desk: A brother and sister were brutally murdered two decades earlier....

As always a great story, but I would have liked the "voice" of the characters less British. It helps me to get into the story
