Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 186 - In Farleigh Field by Rhys Bowen, The Hot Zone by Jayne Castle

In Farleigh FieldIn Farleigh Field by Rhys Bowen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gemma Dawson does a very impressive job giving additional life to Rhys Bowen's characters. The story highlights the hardships during the early days of World War II. The characters are interesting and very well drawn. The feel of the story is realistic. The plot matches events as they happened in 1941. While some of the characters are fictional some are also real. This is a interesting and hard quit listening to book. While I had a very clear idea of one character who was a German sympathizer the other was a bit of a surprise. All in all a very good book to listen to.

The Hot Zone (Rainshadow, #3; Ghost Hunters, #11)The Hot Zone by Jayne Castle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lyle is Sedona Snow's dust bunny. Let me start by saying I WANT MY OWN DUST BUNNY!! This continues the story line set on Rainshadow. There are the usual characters and one is in danger. Sedona has escaped from being held in a underground lab and just wants to continue living her life in peace. Cyrus Jones is new to Rainshadow. When danger strikes he is there to protect Sedona. The plot is nothing new but it still held my attention. Sedona and Cyrus are both very interesting characters who are just a little outside the norm. Look for new twists in the aliens ruins on Rainshadow. Of course Lyle the dust bunny often steals the show. Great fun addition to the series.
