Waiting on Wednesday*** If I Should Die (Revenants #3) by Amy Plum

If I Should Die (Revenants #3) by Amy Plum (Goodreads Author) 4.26 of 5 stars 4.26 · rating details · 4,563 ratings · 778 reviews I will not lose another person I love. I will not let history repeat itself. Vincent waited lifetimes to find me, but in an instant our future together was shattered. He was betrayed by someone we both called a friend, and I lost him. Now our enemy is determined to rule over France’s immortals, and willing to wage a war to get what they want. It shouldn’t be possible, none of it should be, but this is my reality. I know Vincent is somewhere out there, I know he’s not completely gone, and I will do anything to save him. After what we’ve already fought to achieve, a life without Vincent is unimaginable. He once swore to avoid dying—to go against his nature and forsake sacrificing himself for others—so that we could be together. How can I not risk everything to bring my love back to me?

Countdown City (Last Policeman #2) by Ben H. Winters 4.02 of 5 stars 4.02 722 ratings · 205 reviews There are just 74 days to go before a deadly asteroid collides with Earth, and Detective Hank Palace is out of a job. With the Concord police force operating under the auspices of the U.S. Justice Department, Hank's days of solving crimes are over...until a woman from his past begs for help finding her missing husband. Brett Cavatone disappeared without a trace—an easy feat in a world with no phones, no cars, and no way to tell whether someone’s gone “bucket list” or just gone. With society falling to shambles, Hank pieces together what few clues he can, on a search that leads him from a college-campus-turned-anarchist-encampment to a crumbling coastal landscape where anti-immigrant militia fend off “impact zone” refugees. The second novel in the critically acclaimed Last Policeman trilogy, Countdown City presents a fascinating mystery set on brink of an apocalypse--and once again, Hank Palace confronts questions way beyond "whodunit." What do we as human beings owe to one another? And what does it mean to be civilized when civilization is collapsing all around you? REVIEW~ 4 STARS **** I've not had a chance to read the first book in this trilogy, but I decided to jump in anyways- The Author had a unique writing style that I enjoyed- The main character came to life right away and developed well throughout the story. Countdown City was well written, fast pace, exciting, and full of action. I'm excited to get my hands on book one and also continue on with this trilogy- worth the read. After I've read book one I will add to this review- I would highly recommend Countdown City to everyone. NOTE: I won an Advance Review Copy in a giveaway for free in exchange for my honest review.

Review~ Come Fly with Me by Judith Whitmore

From mansions in Emerald Bay, to hilltop villas in the Caribbean, Come Fly with Me is the story of a woman coming into her own in a world where the sky is the limit. Kate Randolph is young, beautiful and rich, and her passion is flying. In the air she feels a freedom she feels nowhere else, and it’s where she dreams of escape from her marriage to a cold, distant husband. Rick Sanders, her tough flight instructor, challenges Kate to always rise to the occasion and trust her instincts. A series of unexpected events forces both to look beyond the usual facades, and as a result, Kate and Rick liberate each other––she rescues him in a harrowing mission into Southeast Asia that proves her mettle once and for all, and he releases her to be the woman she was meant to be––no holds barred. REVIEW: 5 STARS***** I've had this book on my shelves for a couple of months before I decided to pick it up (the bright blue spine was hard to ignore) I'm so happy I finally picked this book up- I fell in love with this story. From my understanding is this is Authors debut novel- let's just say she has this in the bag* Come Fly with Me has a little bit of everything to appeal to all readers. Pacing was great- Characters were likable and vibrant, Writing was fantastic- Author has a wide vocabulary and never overused words throughout the story. The Authors attention to detail and descriptions were outstanding, which made this book so enjoyable. All the small details throughout this book you may have not gave much thought to come together perfectly towards the end. I loved every minute of this book and this is not my usual genera- I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a well-written romance-adventure filled with surprises and an actual story-line not dominated in the bedroom. The first couple of chapters I felt a little thrown in as your introduced to most of the characters early on, but by chapter four I was hooked and couldn't put it down. Come Fly with Me would be great to curl up with in front of a fireplace- to bad I don't have one. This book was a true delight- I look forward to more from this Author and would pick up her next book without hesitation. NOTE: I won a copy of Come Fly with Me in a giveaway for free in hopes of an honest review being posted online.
