Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 82 - Where the Dead Lie by C.S. Harris, The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick, Talk Cowboy to Me by Carolyn Brown

Where the Dead Lie (Sebastian St. Cyr, #12)Where the Dead Lie by C.S. Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It always seems like a very long wait for the next Sebastian St. Cyr book so the I was offered a ARC on Netgalley I jumped at the chance. Once I started reading I was back in the wonderful world that Harris has painted. Once again Sebastian is trying to solve a murder and runs right into a world that Jarvis controls. Not everything is solved and I was left with the feeling that things were not what the seemed in the Jarvis household. Now I have to wait another year to see if what I think I saw is what Harris is setting up. Great addition to the series.

The Girl Who Knew Too MuchThe Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I worried when I realized that The Girl Who Know Too Much was set in the 1930's, a big jump form Quick's usual time frame and focus. I did not need to worry. The jump is seamless and the focus on a mystery kept my attention. I loved both Irene and Oliver. Both had interesting secrets and both were great together. Burning Cove is a great setting - a place full of secrets and interesting characters. with a scene at the end of the book Quick let us know that there will be other stories in this setting. I am looking forward to coming back for another visit and hope it will be soon. I received a free copy of The Girl Who Knew Too Much from the publisher in return for a honest review.

Talk Cowboy to Me (Lucky Cowboys, #1)Talk Cowboy to Me by Carolyn Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sourcebook has been sending me teaser chapters of books and when I read the ones for Talk Cowboy to Me I was hooked. I purchased the book and it turned out to be as good as the first five chapters lead me to believe. There is a twist in how the plot laid out. I expected the two people competing for the ranch to remain enemies but that did not happen. In fact as the story evolved they learned to work together to get everything done.  Each came with two children that added to the fun in the story.  The big problem for Adele O'Donnell was the reputation that Remington Luckadeau had as a player. That was the big tension driver in the book.
