WW Ladies Book Club

Barbara Vey -- January 11th, 2012

It’s been a lovely winter, more like spring actually.  But tomorrow they are predicting snow storms and the perfect excuse to cuddle up with your tbr pile, a throw and a hot drink (preferably with whipped cream).  Time to get some serious reading done and the WW Ladies are here with their reads of the week.

Harvest Hunting by Yasmine Galenorn

Listened to by joysann

Some werewolves have gone missing, including the pregnant sister of one of their friends, so Delilah puts her skills as a private detective to work to find the woman before it is too late. She uncovers a cruelly evil, deadly magic worked by sorcerers to be used in the upcoming demon war. It is no surprise to learn that she, her sisters, and family and friends are all targeted by the agent of the demon general.

The D’Artigo sisters’ lives are complicated, but very magical and intriguing. Each book in the Otherworld series is narrated by one of the three half-human, half-fey women, bringing different perspectives and personal revelations to the ongoing story, keeping it fresh and interesting. Harvest Hunting kept me enthralled for many hours of pleasurable listening. There are a couple of newer books in the series out, so I have some serious catching up to do, and I’m looking forward to it.

Read by Heidi

Sloan McKinley wants to escape New York and her stifling, overbearing mother that only wants her married to be more popular in their “circles”. Sloan’s best friend Grier, is in Indigo, Alaska after the death of her estranged father, and needs Sloan’s support. Sloan finds herself in the tiny town, that is preparing for the Great Bachelor Competition. That is the last thing she wants. But Walker Montgomery, town lawyer and confirmed bachelor, is turning her head and possibly her heart.

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!! The first of the Alaskan Nights Series has everything a long, cold winter night could ask for: Adventure, Self-discovery, Love, Friendship, and of course a small town full of RUGGED HOT MEN!! Imagine yourself curled up under a comfy blanket and reading this cozy love story and you will be completely satisfied. I am really looking forward to the next installment of this series!!

The Wild Ways by Tanya Huff

Read by joysann

An indication of her Wild Power, Charlotte “Charlie” Gale has a different kind of magic than the rest of her family, one that allows her to slip through time and space with music and a walk in the Wood. While playing with a Celtic band in Nova Scotia, she sides with the environmentalists against the building of an oil platform that would endanger a seal colony and the selkies that live among them. Wiith her teen-aged cousin Jack, with draconian magic in his own right, she sets about finding a sealskin thief who is using the fae to further the industrialist’s goals.

Tanya Huff introduced the fascinating Gale family in The Enchantment Emporium, and their convoluted relationships, unusual family dynamics and their magic are marvels of imagination. This second book is an exciting continuation, and the likable characters make me want to know more about them, and where they are going. There is much mystery in the Gale family history, and in their magic, and I hope this unfailingly entertaining author is planning to give us more.

Read by Michelle

David is a young boy whose mother has died of cancer.  While he and his father are learning to move on, his father brings a new woman home and they then have a child together.  David retreats into a world of fantasy by pouring through his beloved books.  His affinity is for myths and fairy tales.  In their new home David is surrounded by a mystery of a lost great uncle, the whisperings of the characters in his books and the haunting notion that his mother is trapped and needs his help.  David finds himself lost in an unknown world, faced by fears and not knowing who to trust.  His goal is to find the king who may be the only one able to send him back home.

This was an enchanting tale of adventure, imagination and faith.  Mr. Connolly takes the reader on a fast paced journey to the underworld of unimaginable beasts.  The only way out is to let go and face your fears.

Wicked Lies by Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush

Read by Loretta

Laura Adderly has just received her final divorce papers, but to her dismay has also discovered that she is pregnant.  To add to her problems she has begun receiving searing messages in her brain from her brother, Justice Turnbull.  He is incarcerated at a Security Psychiatric Hospital, and is able to communicate with her mentally.  This crazed killer has escaped from his cell  and is vowing to destroy her and her unborn child.

Lisa Jackson and her sister, Nancy Bush are co-authors of Wicked Lies – an out of this world novel -  you might say!  The suspense had my heart pounding and my breath coming in gasps as I devoured page after page os this astounding story.  Although it is only 529 pages long, I thought it was not long enough.  A thriller throughout!

 

The winner of Marjorie M. Liu’s 2 signed new releases from Monday’s blog is Denise McGee.  Denise please email me your address.  bvey@publishersweekly.com  I’ll pass it on to Marjorie and congratulations!

Bottom Line:  I’m off to Wautoma to visit a pal and my hardest decision is what audio book to listen to in the car…decisions, decisions.
