Baggage Claim Review

3 out of 5 stars

Baggage Claim is fast paced and a definite page turner. I read it in an afternoon! Rachel is on a once in a lifetime trip to New York when a problem with her luggage lands her in the middle of a terrorist plot. With the help of Homeland Security she is fighting just to survive.
I enjoyed this book, but something about it just felt a little unfinished. I think I didn't really feel connected to the characters and it made it hard for me to connect to the story. In all it was an enjoyable read.

Shop Till You Drop Review

4 out of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read by Elaine Viets. Helen is stuck in a dead end job in an exclusive clothing store. She lives paycheck to paycheck and avoids drawing any attention to herself. When she starts seeing suspicious activity around the store she doesn't want to believe, but when someone ends up dead she knows she's in the middle of something bad. The cops and looking at her, the exclusive clientele all have secrets, and Helen just wants to make it out alive.
It took me a little while to get into Shop Till You Drop, but the last 100 pages flew by. The book and the characters pick up momentum as it goes. There were some scenes and characters that seemed unnecessary to the plot that I thought slowed down the first half. I will definitely read the next book in the series though!

Hour Game Review

5 out of 5 stars

I liked the first King and Maxwell book - this second one is better. I loved it! What really made the book for me was the relationship between Sean King and Michelle Maxwell. It was funny and real and made me want to meet them. The mystery was full of twists and turns, and the story was fast paced. I couldn't put it down. I definitely recommend this book!

Saint's Gate Review

4 out of 5 stars

Saint's Gate is my first Carla Neggers book. I probably would never have read it if not the 2015 challenge I am doing. This is a book and author I am glad the challenge introduced me to. I really liked the main character Emma. I liked that she was a nun and how that was dealt with in the book. I found her peaceful demeanor to be an interesting contrast to the murder mystery. I will definitely be reading more by Carla Neggers.
