Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 195 - The Life She Wants by Robyn Carr, The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman

The Life She WantsThe Life She Wants by Robyn Carr
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Therese Plummer's voice in the books she narrates. It is really suited to stories like The Life She Wants. This is women's fiction featuring two friends who had a major falling out 15 years ago. Now events have brought them back where their orbits once again intersect. A story line with fairly stock characters and a familiar plot but still one most readers will enjoy. There were some very powerful scenes that struck a cord with me even as I knew what would happen.

The Burning Page (The Invisible Library, #3)The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Irene is on probation for her actions in The Masked City. That does not keep her out of danger. Alberich is on the move again and it is up to Irene to stop him. This third book does a good job of mixing action to the appropriate character. Vale and Kai are part of the action. Other characters reappear and play an important part in the plot. Irene learns something that surprises her and will require further investigation on her part. The Burning Page is a interesting and exciting continuation of the story of the Invisible Library.
