Slow, Slow, Slow

Divergence (Foreigner #21)Divergence by C.J. Cherryh
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The twenty-first book in the Foreigner saga continues the adventures of diplomat Bren Cameron. Once again Bren is In the middle of the action. The problem - there is little action and a lot of in the head thinking and remembering. This was just a slow read - I think I said the same thing about book twenty. I waded through the story and will continue to read the series but I do hope it get more interesting.

Book three

Fair Exchange (Amsterdam Institute, #3)Fair Exchange by R.Z. Held
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sienna has a dead Pax Romana spy's implant into her head when she is sent on an exchange where she was not expected to survive. The plot revolves around what she does to survive. The world building was incomplete as it was expected that I had read the first two books. This is book three but set 100 years in the future. All in all an enjoyable story but it was missing elements that would have made it better. Interesting characters - especially the near-AI.

Fun Novella

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A fun novella set in the Maximum Security world. A kick ass female private detective and a recently retired special ops man get together to rescue a young boy kidnapped by his drug dealing father. Lots of action and romance. A nice quick read perfect for today.

Good Ending

Summer at Lake Haven (Haven Point, #11)Summer at Lake Haven by RaeAnne Thayne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Last of the Haven Point books we get to see most of the characters from the past and attend the wedding from the couple in the first book. That brings us to the main characters in this book. The brides brother from England and the designer of the wedding dress. The two know there is no future for the two of them but of course things work out. There is tension and romance as the two are thrown together. Nice ending to the series.

No Incentive to Continue

Orb and Arrow: Book I: ExplorationOrb and Arrow: Book I: Exploration by V.L. Stuart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is a lot going on in the book but for me it never went anywhere. It is exploration and our two main characters do a lot of that. Along the way. there is danger and adventure but I never saw a goal. They just wandered and met different people. Entertaining but no incentive to read the next book in the series.

They Belong Together

Love and Other Perils: A Regency Novella DuetLove and Other Perils: A Regency Novella Duet by Emily Larkin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What do a Liberian and a Scientist and a solider and the daughter have in common. They each have the main role in a novella in this book. The solider and the daughter have a very messy adventure. The Liberian and the Scientist find they have a lot in common. It just takes a few pages to see that each belongs with the other. Fun stories and easy reading. Something we all need in this troubled time.

The Past Returns

Fleet ElementsFleet Elements by Walter Jon Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Martinez and Sula are thrown together 10 years after the last book in the series. Once again they work and defeat the enemy but at great cost. While the battle is a large part of this story line the relationship between Martinez and Sula is again center stage. Things look great for the two but there is another player who can really change the relationships and destroy both. How does it end. Badly.
