The Last Good Kiss

Crumley, James
P.I. Sughrue takes on a ten-year-old missing persons case Adult themes. Lots o' drinking, cussing, violence, etc. I always appreciate an author who kills off the most sympathetic character in the last four pages after everything has turned out ok. Sorry, just forget I said that. They were already dead, anyway...oops that gives even more away!

Santa baby

Crusie, Jennifer
I never thought Id say it, but I couldnt finish this book because it had too much sex. The first story, Hot Toy by Jennifer Crusie, was pretty good. The second story, Christmas Bonus by Lori Foster, was pretty boring and too much sex. The third story, Naughty Under The Mistletoe by Carly Phillips, was boring and looked like it was going to have too much sex, eventually. So I quit!

Tell Me Lies

Crusie, Jennifer
A woman find some unmentionables (not hers) in her husband's car. Very good funny tale, some hot sex, funny lines.

QUOTE:

Calm down. Be rational. Eat Chocolate. There was a good idea. Chocolate spurred the production of endorphins, which would calm her down, and was full of caffeine, which would give her the energy to kill her husband. The best of both worlds.

Moon Window

Curry, Jane
I wish I knew more about writing so I could figure out why the second half of the story didn't work for me, but I don't and it didn't. Anyway, a young girl is sent to stay with a relative in a strange old stone house in New Hampshire while her mother is on her honeymoon with her new husband. Charming jacket illustration.
