The Cat Letters: Review & Giveaway

Hi All!

How is your weekend ending? Good I hope! First on today's agenda! is my review of The Cat Letters by Lexis DeRothschild:


Published May 18, 2011 by the Author (Lexis DeRothschild)
65 pgs (Novella)

From Goodreads:
A woman from Nantucket finds herself writing to her cat when she leaves her married lover by sailing to the Caribbean.


My Review:
A fun and wonderful read. "Me" a bartender who is lives in Nantucket writes letters to her cat Baxter about the daily goings on in her life. While trying to get over the break up of her affair with a married man, she sails away to the Caribbean. 
I thought this story was good and very well written. There was so much humor in it and I enjoyed it immensely. I love "me" throughout the book. She was tough, funny and smart. The Nantucket and Caribbean background was the perfect setting for the story as well. I think readers will fall in love with authors story of love lost and gained again.
I rate this one 4 Black Orchids!




Okay...so…

Dirty Little Secret #6

Dirty Little Secret is a weekly meme hosted by us at Under the Covers. Every Thursday we get to know other bloggers and our readers more intimately by asking them a question hoping to reveal their dirty little secrets.  We hope that you will all join us!


This week's question:



"If you could shape shift into anything, what would it be?"
I would shift into a werewolf. I love them (one of my many obsessions...). I will be all white & furry, cute...but I'll eat you up as soon as you make the wrong move...

Review: The Darkest Surrender

From Goodreads:
Possessed by the demon of Defeat, Strider cannot lose a challenge without suffering unimaginable pain. For him, nothing stands in the way of victory. Until Kaia, an enchanting Harpy, tempts him to the razor's edge of surrender.Known among her people as The Disappointment, Kaia must bring home the gold in the Harpy Games or die. Strider is a distraction she can't afford because he has an agenda of his own-steal first prize, an ancient godly artifact, before the winner can be named. But as the competition heats up, only one prize will matter-the love neither had thought possible...


My Review:
Definitely one of the better books in this series. Strider & Kaia were the perfect couple...I mean literally they were written for each other. 
Stride who is possessed by the demon Defeat cannot loose a challenge without going through much suffering. And my o' my did Kaia challenge him in this installment of LOTU. I necessarily didn't care for Strider in some of LOTU…

Happy Release Day!

Got Adam on my NOOK today....Holla!



Happy Reading!

Review: Monster Story by McCarty Griffin

From Goodreads:
Christy McCauley has returned to West Virginia at last, but her homecoming quickly turns into a surreal nightmare. In the deep hollows and woods of rural Augusta County, something unspeakable is slaughtering people in the dark of night. Authorities don't know if its human or animal, or how to stop it. Christy and her friends only know they must hunt it and destroy it, before it kills again.


My Review:
Christy McCauley returns home for her grandmothers funeral and finds out that she's not just dealing with her & her mother's almost non-existing relationship. She and her friends finds out there is a monster walking around in their small West Virginia town and it's wreaking havoc. 
This one gets 4 Black Orchids. There were some typos throughout the book, but it didn't take away from the story, which was solid and the characters were strong. This is a great scary story and I enjoyed it immensely.

Weekly Follow Up.....

That's me up there, reflecting my work.....

So this week was a cyclone of things to do. There was too much to do & really no time to get it all done (this is the story of my life...lol). So after going to traffic court, then motor vehicles (now that's a horror story on its own..) and then also try to update my blog with review & contest/giveaways I'm a part of....and oh yeah, squeezing work in there too ;0.....whew! I'm beat.

A new week is approaching & hopefully with a little more time management regiments, I'll be able to get through with a little more effectiveness.
