Didn’t get much reading done in February. Well, no, I take that back; I managed to read the pile of work-related magazines and articles, and it was just the pleasure-reading that was a little light.
1. Enduring Light by Carla Kelly. Inspirational fiction, American western. B. I thought I’d written a review of this book but I can’t find it on my computer anywhere or in any of my notebooks, so perhaps my imagination is being overactive. My notes at LibraryThing read: Beautifully written. A little bored by the Mary Sue heroine. Kelly has a lighter hand than most when it comes to the inspirational parts but I was still a little alienated by the religion and God’s will, etc. Suspense/villain part was a little ridiculous, especially at the end. Author bio was condescending and a little off-putting to me as a romance reader and part of the community upon whom the author her readership/platform before the transition to an LDS publisher.
2. Latakia by JF Smith. M/m adventure and bromance. C. Brief write-up here.
3. A Lady Awakened by Cecilia Grant. European historical. Meh.
4. Andalus by Jason Webster. General fiction.
5. Primal Man by Marguerite Turnley. Australian-set contemporary. DNF.
The last three were all mentioned here.
6. Celebrity in Death by JD Robb. Romantic suspense mixed with police procedural. B+.
7. I Just Play One on TV by A.L. Turner. M/m contemporary. DNF.
8. First Impressions by Josephine Myles. Contemporary m/m novella. B/B-. Sweet and very short story with quirky/different characters.
