Bitter Legacy by Dal MacLean

September 24, 2017

bitter legacyOthers have written excellent reviews of this book here and here. I agree with both of them – Bitter Legacy is one of the best books I read last year. And it still holds up. Just reread it this weekend, and Maclean deserves to be read by fans of angsty romance. Now, if only the author or publisher would give us some details about the next book. Twitter is vague, but sounds like mid-2018 before we’ll have a new offering from MacLean.


Kindred in Death (Robb) and Grave Secret (Harris)

January 6, 2010

Here are two of my favorite series/authors. Funny, but I don’t like Nora Roberts’ books but I love J.D. Robb’s “in death” series. That isn’t the only combo like that either. Love J.R. Ward but Jessica Bird is only ok. Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books are a hoot but her romances are pretty awful. . . .

At this point, with book 30, and this time of year (the holidays) Robb’s in death series reminds of an annual holiday letter . . . great way to catch up with an old friend. It’s been more than a year since I’ve read one – and it is clear I missed at least one from references to one character’s situation in this latest book – and it was nice to catch up.

Re: Charlaine Harris. I just love her writing. I haven’t read any of the Aurora Teagarden mysteries (there’s just too much else on my plate and cozy mysteries haven’t rung my bell yet) but I love the rest of Harris’ series (Sookie Stackhouse, Shadespeare and “Grave” with Harper Connelly and Tolliver). Although I had really weird dreams last night after finishing Grave Secret. . . .

Next up: A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton.
