Books Read in February

Pride by Rachel Vincent -- I love Rachel Vincent's voice and her unique and well detailed world. This is the third book in her Werecat series and I believe a fourth book is coming out this summer. I sense a reread in my near future!

The Lost Recipe for Happiness by Barbara O'Neal -- Also writing as Barbara Samuel and Ruth Wind, Barbara O'Neal writes a wonderful story about family and forgiveness and love in the most unexepected of places.

Healing Waters by Nancy Rue -- This is the second book in Nancy's adult fiction series. Inspirational but not in-your-face religious or overly sentimental. I enjoyed the conflicts of the characters and the real world in which the story was portrayed enough that I'm seeking out the first book from the library.

Dark of Night by Suzanne Brockmann -- The latest book in SB's Troubleshooter series, this was full of action, wonderful characters and even though there is some controversy regarding some of the h/h pairings, I found this to be a solid and enjoyable read.

Where Serpents Sleep by C.S. Harris -- Book four of the Sebastian St.Cyr series. These books just get better and better! I hope the author is going to continue the series and that I don't need to wait too long before I can read more!

The Villa by Nora Roberts -- This was a reread for me. When I can't figure out what to read, I reach for a Nora. And while I have read this particular book many times since it came out in 2001, I always enjoy this story. Maybe it's the wine, maybe it's the foray to Italy. Or maybe it's the reluctant hero. Either way, I'm glad I reread this book in February.

Northern Lights by Nora Roberts -- This book has been optioned and is being made into a movie that will be aired later this spring on Lifetime. It's been a while since I read it I decided to refresh my memory. It's a good book! I had forgotten some of the complexities and, as always, La Nora delivers the description with finese!

True Colors by Kristin Hannah -- Kristin's stories have always been laced with emotion and make the characters work for their happy ending. True Colors is no different. Three sisters struggle to find love and acceptance and coming to terms with the past. Heart wrenching and you will need tissues. In a good way.

Her Sexiest Mistake by Jill Shalvis -- I knew I had read this book previously but I couldn't remember the plot. Since I was doing a book purge, I decided to reread this story before determining if it was a keeper or not. Loved it! Again! Jill has this wonderful way of tugging at your heart while making you laugh. The story is sexy and poignant and touching, often at the same time.

Stand By Your Hitman by Leslie Langtry -- The third book in her Greatest Hits series, this book is about Missy (Mississippi) Bombay. My only irritation with the book was the stereotypical way Canadian media was portayed. An easy and fun read.
