Booklikes Unknown ?

With all the Booklikes drama going on and no one knowing whether its going to continue or not and everyone striving to find a way to stay connected with one another I just figured I would make a post listing different sites that I post reviews on so that maybe some of you can find me if we do happen to lose it. (Keeping fingers crossed that we don't - but just in case.)

I have many other pages but that's all I can think of off the top of my head right now.

I really hope Booklikes remains open and functioning but as a back up all of you are welcome to looking me up on these other sites as well.

Death of a Pumpkin Carver (Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails Mystery #8) by Lee Hollis

Review:

Death of a Pumpkin Carver (Hayley Powell Mystery) - Lee Hollis

This Halloween, Hayley can’t imagine a worse trick than her ex-husband Danny returning to Bar Harbor. Her kids may be happy to see their dad, but Hayley’s determined not to be taken in by his charms, and suspects he’s in financial trouble—again.

Still, the haunted holiday is about to get a whole lot scarier after Danny’s moonshine-making uncle is found lying dead next to a tombstone in a cemetery—and Danny quickly becomes the prime suspect. To prove her ex is innocent, Hayley will have to dig deep into her own bag of tricks to unmask the real culprit . . . before anyone else—including her—ends up in the graveyard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Death of a Pumpkin Carver is exactly what I needed right now. Its fun, its light hearted and yes there are a few serious moments but its a change from the usual books I've been reading lately.

With Halloween just around the corner its nice to have a holiday themed book to read.

Death of a Pumpkin Carver has an enjoyable cast, a really good story line and it perked me up during an emotional slump I was in. I am happy that I found this book.

Deja Who (Insighter #1) by MaryJanice Davidson

Review:

Deja Who (An Insighter Novel) - MaryJanice Davidson

Leah Nazir is an Insighter. Reincarnation is her business. But while her clients’ pasts are a mess, Leah’s is nothing short of tragedy. She’s been murdered. A lot. If left to that bitch, destiny, it’ll happen again. Leah wants to know who’s been following her through time, and who’s been stalking her in the present...
 
P.I. Archer Drake has been hired by Leah’s mother to keep an eye on her. But the more time he spends watching, the more he finds himself infatuated. Before long, he even finds himself agreeing to help find the person who wants her dead. Over and over again.
 
Now going full-on “rewind,” Leah hopes it can stave off the inevitable. After all, she’s grown fond of this life—and even fonder of nerdy Archer. But changing her pattern means finding out who her killer is today. And as Leah fears, that could be anyone she has come to know and trust. Anyone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I really liked the idea behind Deja Who a title that really fits this book because of what takes place inside of it. I loved the idea behind the book, I love that it has to do with reincarnation because its something that is completely different from almost every paranormal book I've read lately.

That's something I really needed recently because a lot of paranormal books have been sounding nearly the same as every other book I've read lately. Not a bad thing but its nice to see something unique. 

The biggest downfall for me was Archer and Leah. They're meant to carry this story and I really couldn't seem to like either one of them.

Leah was completely cold, and Archer was erratic. It made things fairly predictable because of them being jaded from their experiences in their lives but I just couldn't grow to like either one of them no matter what I tried.

I'm still really intrigued by the reincarnation journey and what's going to happen in the next book but I really hope to gain some kind of attachment to our h/h next time around.

Unraveled (Elemental Assassin #15) by Jennifer Estep

Review:

Unraveled (Elemental Assassin) - Jennifer Estep

As the current queen of the Ashland underworld, you would think that I, Gin Blanco, would know all about some secret society controlling things from behind the scenes. I might be the Spider, the city’s most fearsome assassin, but all my Ice and Stone elemental magic hasn’t done me a lick of good in learning more about “the Circle”. Despite my continued investigations, the trail’s gone as cold as the coming winter.

So when Finnegan Lane, my foster brother, gets word of a surprising inheritance, we figure why not skip town for someplace less dangerous for a few days? That place: Bullet Pointe, a fancy hotel resort complex plus Old West theme park that Finn now owns lock, stock, and barrel. At first, all the struttin’ cowboys and sassy saloon girls are just hokey fun. But add in some shady coincidences and Circle assassins lurking all around, and vacationing becomes wilder—and deadlier—than any of us expected.

Good thing this assassin brought plenty of knives to the gunfight
.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unraveled is complex on story building and character building despite being a tad repetitive on details. Gin is great, you can easily feel the building responsibility she has accumulating on her plate as she struggles to balance her personal life with her position. Gin's emotions feel a bit numb, not quite fully open but as a reader I can understand the hesitation or reservation to be fully open to all of those around her.

I get a kick out of all the social banter of our cast and I love all the fun excitement Estep brings to the table.

I do highly suggest reading the previous books in this series because Unraveled picks up directly where its previous book left off and those readers that are uninformed will not be able to follow this book very well. Unraveled is a definite win.
