Finish The Series Challenge - Kell Sabin by Linda Howard

Kell Sabin by Linda Howard
#3 Heartbreaker
#4 White Lies


Linda Howard Collection (Heartbreaker & White Lies)Linda Howard Collection by Linda Howard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A number of years ago I was on a Linda Howard kick and read everything the library owned.  They had books 1 and 2 in this series but not books 3 and 4.  I thought now would be a good time to finish the series.  I liked the first two books and I liked these two books.  They are clearly 80's romances.  They have the overly dominate older male and he pretty much forces himself onto a woman at least 5 years younger who is kind of willing.  That aside, they were good stories.

Heartbreaker was connected to the story in book 2. I kind of remembered the book but it wasn't really necessary to read this story.  Michelle and John have circled around each other for years, since Michelle was too young John kind of kept his distance.  They both have the wrong impression of each other and this time around they both are learning the truth about each other.  Things seems to be going smoothly until Michelle's ex starts trouble, of course John is there to help her save the day.

White Lies is connected through Kell Sabin and his super secret spy group that kind of works for the government. Jay is called upon to identify a badly bruised man as her ex-husband.  He's not the man she remembers but figures they government has a reason they want everyone to thin he's her ex, so she goes along with their plan.  Along the way she falls for this mystery man who can't remember anything.  As his memory comes back, trouble finds them. They both have to decided if they can build a relationship with his past now known by both of them.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!

Guest Post - The Power of the Written Word

While I am recovering from the stress of writing a final paper, new author, Gerald Freeman, has written a guest post.  His new book "Kill Daddy" is available as a ebook on Amazon.

THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD VERSUS THE POWER OF THE UNSPOKEN WORD
The main objective for anyone involved in the arts is to get their message across, and everything revolves around the efficacy. Artists want to communicate with people, share ideas, passions and experiences. For many of us, the inspiration is life.

I have spent the last 20 years focusing on sculpture and writing, both mediums through which I hope to inspire and share my ideas about us and our role on this planet. I spent 10 years working on my technique in both areas, and a few years ago, I felt ready to put my work out there. I began with sculpture and have been very lucky. I have held some great exhibitions and my work has found a home in many parts of the world. Like writing, it is a gradual process and will take the time it tak…
