The Chase by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg

I recently read The Chase by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg. This is the second book in the Fox & O'Hare series. The story follows FBI agent Kate O'Hare and fugitive Nick Fox. Kate and Nick began working together after Nick was arrested. As part of his sentence he commits crimes to help those who have been taking advantage of  their power positions. The relation ship between Kate and Nick is sometimes complicated. Kate has feelings for nick, but will not give in. The Chase follows Nick's illegal chase for an art thief. Although Kate's FBI boss knows that this is going on, if she gets caught in another country she is out of a job and may be arrested.

I love this series. They are so much fun to read, and I cannot wait for the third one. The tension between Kate and Nick is clearly visible throughout the story. This book is the perfect vacation or beach read! I highly suggest you read The Heist, The Chase and the soon to be release The Job as soon as you can!

Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich

I recently read Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich. Like the previous 19 books, this story follows Stephanie Plum, Joe Morelli, Lula and Ranger. Stephanie searches for a mob boss who has been arrested for murder. This mob boss is not your typical mob boss, he is also Morelli's godfather.

Like the previous stories before it there is a murder, Stephanie has car issues, Lula over eats, there is the Morelli, Ranger, Stephanie love triangle and to top the craziness off there is a giraffe named Kevin that only Stephanie and Lula seem to see. This story lacked on the Morelli, Ranger story line. I would have liked to see more about them. I feel like this story was rushed. It lacked some of the enthusiasm that the previous stories have. I hope that the next one is a little more appealing.

Twisted Vine by Toby Neal

I would like to start with an apology to Ms. Neal. I wrote the review below months ago, but I accidentally clicked the wrong thing and it never posted. Due to various things in my life I have been neglecting my blog and did not realize until today that it never posted. 

I recently read Twisted Vine by Toby Neal. It is the 5th book in the Lei Crime Series. The story follows Lei Texeria as an FBI agent as she tries to uncover a link between a significant number of suicides and the internet. 

I have truly loved this book series. Every story takes place in Hawaii. They keep you captivated. The imagery is amazing. Ms. Neals characters are very well developed. This story was no different. The drama  between the personal life of Agent Texeria and the mystery keeps you on your toes each and every time. 

I highly suggest that you read all of Ms. Neal's books. I look forward to reading all of her future works.

The Bride Wore Size 12

Last month  I read Meg Cabot's new book The Bride Wore Size 12. As with all of Meg Cabot's books, specifically the Heather Wells series I truly enjoyed the story. Let's refresh your memory about Heather. Ms. Wells is a former pop star whose mother and manager ran off with all her money. She began working in a residency hall, Fischer Hall as a way to pay for school. Soon students begin having "accidents" leaving to their untimely death. Heather makes herself lead detective on the cases and almost gets herself killed. The Bride Wore Size 12 begins with Heather's preparation for her wedding.  Another student passes away in the dorm making the peaceful pre-wedding days into chaos especially after her long lost mother comes back into her life.

I adored this book. I loved to see how Heather and Cooper's relationship has progressed. Heather is such a loveable character. Despite her background she feels like anyone we would know. The stories are exciting, the characters are fun. What more could you ask for? Any fans of the series knows that Heather is unable to have children, but I am still hoping for another book, maybe the mom wore size 12?

Tempting Fate by Jane Green

I recently read Tempting Fate by Jane Green. This book will be published March 2014. This story follows Gabby and Elliot. Gabby a married mother of 2 in a loving relationship for twenty years. During a girls night out she meets Matt, a young social website developer. Their relationship grows from drinks at bar to text messages and emails into more dangerous territory. Soon she finds herself in a situation she never thought she would be in. Her life is turned upside down in one swoop.

I truly love reading Jane Green's books. They are fun, enjoyable reads with a twist that is very relate-able able to everyone. Real life situations that could very easily be yourself, your family or friends lives. As with her other books I was unable to put them down. I believe it was a review on Amazon's site that said her books are "compulsively readable," that is truly how I felt reading this book. I was unable to put it down. I couldn't wait to dig deeper into Gabby & Elliot's life. Both the story and the character's are extremely well written.

While I enjoyed this book I have to say I am disappointed because I have to wait so long for next book to come out. I wish they were published sooner.

Everyone go out and get Jane Green's books today! Be sure to pre-order Tempting Fate too!
