The Detroit Almanac eNt You both are so cold blooded distant it s stupid This book is a Present time flashback toxplain what is so damn confusing to present day from cold to hot to cold to all better I was annoyed I cannot get over my faithfulness to not finish a book I read them all the way thru Its like it s written for pregnant hormonal women Oh well My problem This read was funny to me in that I d actually been trying out a few things with format I wasn t planning on reading the book when I did I simply opened it one time to see how it had converted from Pub to mobi and then couldn t stop reading Next thing I knew I was on chapter 3 and had absolutely no intentions of stopping And I had to go pick up kids and such So I had to uickly transfer it to my phone so I could read while sitting in parking lots and such So I think you can pretty much tell what my assessment of this book is I love love loved it It has been a long time since I felt sucked into a book told only from the heroines pov That in itself was interesting to me Usually I like a strong male pov throughout And this one wasn t all bitter as so many single pov books I ve read have been That was cool too It could have been the conflicts were there but I loved how the heroine herself pointedly chose not to be bitter but to find a way to see a good in things Totally loved it Gonna have to get of Susan s books Which makes me laugh Every time I think Why am I picking up books by new authors when so often they are not panning out Then I run across a gem and know why And authors when so often they are not panning out Then I run across a gem and know why And again because of a free book given to me I m now buying This particular line is really not my style of book sophisticated men of the world and captivating women usually translates to the alpha st alpha heroes that ver alphaed but this was very clever and had some fantastic supporting charactersOkay five books in one day plus the one I metaphorically hurled against the wall and
the nd of American Gods I m done now Reallythe next end of American Gods I m done now Reallythe next has secret twinsI can totally stop after six I read this book in what amounts to a single sitting on the flights home from NYC because I could not find The Hunger Games in print in any of the airport bookstores The second two in the series yes but not the first one Never mind though I saved some bucks and got through another book And I never have to read it again This book features one of my hated romance tropes the Secret Baby But this turns out to be the best kind of secret baby it s still in the womb And actually spoiler here it turns out to be nonexistent anyway The heroine s pregnancy is hysterical and so is some of the writing I offer for your consideration such nuggets as these all from the first chapterShe kept her voice steady confident that she looked a lot composed than she felt Although she was only a little taller than average the willowy curves legant bone structure and haughty facial features that Kate had inherited from her undemonstrative mother helped project an air of cool sophistication and graceful poise regardless of her inner turmoilKate has just come face to face with the hero who is not at inner turmoilKate has just come face to face with the hero who is not at pleased to see her So naturally this paragraph is followed by two musing on the undemonstrative nature of Kate s mama and the Canvas: The Program Book 1 effect that had on their relationship snortWhen Kate is alone in her rented house again the author walks us through the process of making a cup of tea including she discarded the sodden tea bag in the sink and added a splash of milk The tea would probably have been better if she d put the milk in her cup Either the writing improves after the first chapter or I became inured to it because my annotations peter out shortly thereafter when Kate pulls the pins out of her chignon yes really a chignon and let her hair flow like warm caramel through her fingers To the characters and the story though Okay let me think how to phrase this toxpress my feelings fully Meh It was only OK There wasn t much about the story that will stick with me beyond the next book I read I m sure Ca os livros de Drake Eles já viveram um tórrido romance Orleans e se reencontram na Nova Zelândia onde se descobrem vizinhos de portam um balneário Um peueno acidente com um cãozi.
