An Unseen Current by Bethany Maines

Kaye, July 15, 2015

Trish Yearly has the worst day of her life when she is evicted and fired on the same day, and her mother refuses to let her come and stay. So Trish does the next best thing, and goes to her grandfather Tobias' place. There she finds out that Tobias used to be a CIA Agent and then finds his best friend dead. Since there's nowhere else to go but up, Trish and her grandfather start investigating. I loved this book. There were quirky characters, including a hunky, but straight-laced deputy and a real feel for the San Juan Islands.

Paw Enforcement Novel #2: Paw and Order by Diane Kelly
Paw Enforcement Novel #2: Paw and Order

Kaye, July 4, 2015

This is the second book in the Paw Enforcement series and it's as good and as funny as the first book. Police Officer Megan Luz and her trusty K-9 partner Brigit are roped into working at the local rodeo. Megan isn't a rodeo fan, but Brigit finds some of the activities enticing. However when "Robin Hood" a young Texas golddigger starts stealing from the rich to give to the poor, herself, Megan and Brigit are on the case. This series is very, very good, with suspense as well as delving into Megan's relationships. It was funny in the right places, and I found myself literally laughing out loud. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.

Kindness Goes Unpunished (Walt Longmire Mysteries) by Craig Johnson
Kindness Goes Unpunished (Walt Longmire Mysteries)

Kaye, June 30, 2014

Walt Longmire, Sheriff of Wyoming's Absaroka County, takes some time off to go to Philadelphia with Henry Standing Bear, so he can see his daughter Cady. They barely arrive when Cady is violently assaulted and ends up in critical condition in ICU. Between sitting with Cady and investigating (with the help of the entire Moretti clan, Henry, and Dog), he discovers she unwittingly became involved in a deadly political cover-up.

This series rocks. I love Walt, Henry, Vic, and everyone. Walt just does what needs to be done with common sense and humor. He dispenses justice with an even hand.

Peace by Piece by Carol Fragale Brill
Peace by Piece

Kaye, June 29, 2014

Maggie was a damaged woman. She had a dysfunctional childhood, her parents locked into age old conflicts. When she was at college, she had a relationship with Thomas, who was her greatest love, but when she saw him in an embrace with his ex-fiancee, Maggie fled. She's been working at the library and still working on her degree, one class at a time, but has given up on love. But when she meets motherless, 8 year old Izzie, she falls completely in love with her. With her maternal instincts full-force, she agrees to marry Izzie's father, Donald. The thrill is never there, and her eating disorder increases, but she keeps telling herself that Izzie is worth it. When she runs into Thomas, she finds she has a decision to make, does she stay in her loveless marriage, or does she follow her heart?

I loved this book. Maggie was so conflicted and unhappy, that I wanted to tell her that she was worthwhile. This was a story of Maggie and how she became the way she was. It was a story of love and relationships and loyalty, and hope.

Tangled Vines Mystery #01: Grapes of Death by Joni Folger
Tangled Vines Mystery #01: Grapes of Death

Kaye, June 24, 2014

Elise Beckett's family owns River Bend vineyard, and she's been working on hybridization to make the crop more drought resistant. Her long-distance boyfriend has offered her a dream job with him in Dallas in organic horticulture research, but before she can discuss it with her family her Uncle Edmund is found dead. When it turns out to be murder, Elise and her family friend Sheriff's Deputy Jackson Landry must catch the killer.

This was a very fun read, I enjoyed it immensely. Elise was enjoyable character. I particularly liked her cat Chunk, a Siamese Snowshoe, since I have one myself (although not with the same bad habit). I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.
