Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 242 - Need to Know by Fern Michaels, Head On by John Scalzi

Need to KnowNeed to Know by Fern Michaels
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book 28 in the Sisterhood series and the first one I have listened to. The series seems to be popular but it just did not resonate with me. I found the entire story line ridiculous. In the end I even felt sorry with the man they were out to get even with. I wondered how the famous singer ever let someone take that much advantage of her. On the plus side it did show some very strong women who knew how to take care of themselves and their friends. I think if I had been reading this it would have been a DNF. Since I was listening when I was driving I gave it a pass.

Head On (Lock In, #2)Head On by John Scalzi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What is not to love in a game where you can take the head off of a player and do no damage. If you have Haden’s Syndrome and pilot a threep it can be done. Everything is OK until someone finds a way to kill a player. This is a fun mystery with so many suspects you need a chart to keep score. I love Chris Shane and Leslie Vann, the two FBI agents investigating the crime. Chris has Haden's and leaves a trail of damaged or destroyed tweeps where every he goes. Vann is a gritty in your face detective who get results. She and Chris are great working together. You do need to read Lock In before starting Head On to keep from being confused about who and what people with Haden's can do.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.
