Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 80 - No Getting Over the Cowboy by Delores Fossen, Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs, The Gathering Edge by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

No Getting Over a Cowboy (Wrangler's Creek, #2)No Getting Over a Cowboy by Delores Fossen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Garrett Granger is still full of both rage over the end of his marriage and grief over the loss of his child. Enter Nicky Marlow an old flame who is about to shake up his world. Nicky has secrets of her own and they add to the tension in the story. The attraction between the two drive the story and Nicky's daughter often steals the show. There are also some very interesting side characters who add more spice to the story. This is another fun contemporary western romance with all the Fossen trademarks. In addition she shines the spot light on some series issues that women often face.

Silence Fallen (Mercy Thompson, #10)Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mercy is certainly in a mess this time. It seems someone named her as the most powerful person in the Tri-Cities and that leads to her abduction. What follows is a tension filled story that is full of surprises. Mercy ends up in Europe and takes things into her own hands to escape. Adam follows her trail. He does not travel alone. It was fun to watch Mercy as she uses all of her skill to escape and travel from Italy to Prague. In the meantime Adam has other problems that he has to solve before he can leave Italy and go to Prague. There are a lot of twists in the story. I was really surprised to find out the real identity of one of the characters. See if you catch on before the end of the book.

The Gathering Edge (Liaden Universe, #20)The Gathering Edge by Sharon Lee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lee and Miller are filling in some of the edges in the latest Liaden book. This time it is Theo and her crew who are at the front and center of this book. It seems that even when the Bechimo takes them to safe space it is not that safe. Things just keep appearing from that other universe and some are alive on arrival. I enjoyed seeing more of norbear ambassador Hevelin. He is much more that I expected from previous books. The action in this latest book is leading the characters back to Surebleak and what look like another showdown between Koval and the Liaden Clans.
