Three Books Reviewed

This last week I have been suffering from what I like to call the Dragon Flu. It’s where your derriere is draggin’. But more particularly this was a seasonal flu, and it knocked me out. I was in bed most of the time.

What’s the best thing to do if you need to rest and don’t have much energy? Why, read through a few books in between naps.

As I’ve said before, I love a good mystery. And I follow quite a few mystery series (I keep wanting to pluralize the word series! What’s the right way to say it?).

All of the books were pretty darn engaging. This isn’t always the case when it comes to a multi-book series. In fact, each of the authors who I am going to list have had good and not so good installments.

I finished three different tomes. Just in case you were wondering, I’ve listed them below.

Shadows in Death by J.D. Robb

Shadows in Death, #51 of In Death Series

Rating: 5 out of 5.

My review: Definitely a strong entry in this long running series. Lots of energy and intrigue. Interpol gets involved. We see Roarke in more pensive moments. We have a rousing ending, where we see a whole lot of cops do what cops do. Generally a good read, more engaging than most.

Gone Missing by Linda Castillo

Gone Missing, Kate Burkholder #4

Rating: 5 out of 5.

My review: this is another compelling read in an intense, disturbing, and interesting series. Kate Burkholder grew up Amish, but is now the Chief of Police in a small town. The book revolves around missing Amish teens and the investigation. Fast paced. The author does not pull any punches in this series when it comes to graphic and the gross. This is not a series for the faint-hearted. I learn something every time. And so far I like Kate and her state agent counterpart, John Tomasetti. I am always rooting for them to solve the horrible crime(s).

Fortune and Glory by Janet Evanovich

Fortune and Glory, Stephanie Plum #27

Rating: 4 out of 5.

My review: An easy read in this long running series. A new character is introduced, and there are some shifts in plot type, which I enjoyed.
