Good morning (or whatever time it is where you are), everyone!
Welcome to another installment of Taste Testing Tuesdays here at Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers! Taste Testing Tuesdays was inspired by 'Teaser Tuesdays', a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
On the menu this week...THREE books in progress that are very different from each other. Why three? Well, the first I'm struggling with, the second was to help with the struggle and the third was one I started to read to Mom in the hospital in lieu of trying to get her up to speed on another one. Ready for today's bookish smorgasbord? Here we go!
Carrie drove, later that afternoon, out to Lakeview, pretending to be on department business, just to see for herself where Martinez had been killed. Her eyes darted back and forth across the steadily trafficked street as it led toward I-10.
-- pg 117, 15 Seconds by Andrew Gross
Yeah, this is the one giving me trouble. I'm all about suspending my beliefs and all that when reading but if it's set in present day and the events unfolding don't seem believable (in structure at least), it makes it a bit difficult. We're still early on in the book so I'm keeping an open mind....
They all stood still and waited for the onslaught of Security Force Elite to settle in and assess the environment. More people dead, and all because of her mistakes. Releasing a deep breath, Shamira's eyes turned in the direction of her father. He wasn't smiling. He was angry.
-- pg 64, The Pack: Retribution by LM Preston
Now this one is just as action packed as the first book and definitely has me hooked. What's going on at the Mons NOW? Didn't they kill all the bad guys last time around? What's with the weird cloacking devices and "disappearing" baddies? So many questions....but you can count on Shamira to get to the bottom of things, one way or another.
The news they'd been waiting for arrived by courier. He handed Kate a brown envelope and asked her to sign for it. With trembling fingers, she ripped it open.
-- Chapter 4, location 320 of 1558, Timber Ridge Riders, book 3: Riding for the Stars by Maggie Dana
What? You didn't think I'd spoil the suspenseful moment now, did you? Hehe. It's another adventure at Timber Ridge, this time a stunt double role is up for grabs for one of the girls as well as the chance to make their dreams reality...depending on who you are. This scene puts Kate on the cusp of finding out whether she'll get to do a screen test for the role. *fingers crossed* Oh and about that weird location listed....I'm reading this one on my smartphone Kindle app so it doesn't actually give a page number per se. *grumble*
