Friday Mini Reviews #100: J.D. Robb, Ilona Andrews & Tiffany Reisz




Brotherhood in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #42)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads

JUSTICE IS SERVED.
Edward Mira is a powerful man, with a lot of enemies. But when the former senator is violently abducted, Lieutenant Eve Dallas suspects his kidnap is more personal than political. Someone is seeking justice; the bloodier the better.
Edward's cousin Dennis was injured during the abduction - and that makes things very personal for Eve and her husband Roarke. Dennis is a beloved friend, married to NYPSD's top profiler Charlotte Mira.

But as Eve delves deeper into the case, dark secrets emerge that could tear the family apart. Edward Mira has friends in high places - and they all seem to be hiding something. As her investigation takes a shocking turn, Eve finds that not all victims are innocent, and that some bonds are forged not in friendship, but in blood.

8/10 
In this book Eve discovers a series of crimes going back many years. It concerns rape, and the people she tries to protect are the bad guys. So, it's definitely a very difficult case and a very emotional one. Dramatic and fast-paced, and as usual, very enjoyable.

 В этой книге Ив расследует серию преступлений, совершённых на протяжение многих лет. Здесь затронута очень трудная для неё тема сексуального насилия, и она ещё к тому же вынуждена защищать злодеев, а не жертв, что превращает дело в очень тяжёлое эмоционально для нашего летейнанта. Драматичный, быстро развивающийся детектив. Читала с удовольствием.



One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews (Innkeeper Chronicles #3)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads
Gertrude Hunt, the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, is glad to have you. We cater to particular kind of guests, the ones most people don’t know about. The older lady sipping her Mello Yello is called Caldenia, although she prefers Your Grace. She has a sizable bounty on her head, so if you hear kinetic or laser fire, try not to stand close to the target. Our chef is a Quillonian. The claws are a little unsettling, but he is a consummate professional and truly is the best chef in the Galaxy. If you see a dark shadow in the orchard late at night, don’t worry. Someone is patrolling the grounds. Do beware of our dog.

Your safety and comfort is our first priority. The inn and your host, Dina Demille, will defend you at all costs. We ask only that you mind other guests and conduct yourself in a polite manner.

 How I love this amazing series, peeps!  The plot just keeps expanding beautifully, the characters are yummy, and the world-building - absolutely fascinating.

Как  мне нравится эта офигительная серия, дамы и господа! Сюжет красиво раскрывается всё больше и больше, герои многослойные и построение мира просто завораживает.
"Да, принцесса, которую ты ожидал, надела доспехи и ушла убивать дракона. Ну, извиняйте."
ВОТ. Вот это классическая Илона Эндрюс. Обожаю,ЧИТАЙТЕ!

The Scent of Winter by Tiffany Reisz (The Original Sinners #6.5)

free on author's website

Synopsis from Goodreads
The 2016 Original Sinners Christmas story, free on December 20th.

Kingsley Edge thought he was being driven to the airport. He never expected he'd be kidnapped and relocated to a cabin in the middle of nowhere, Maine to help Søren celebrate his birthday. But it's not quite the sexy party Kingsley hoped for. Søren has been keeping a secret from Kingsley for several years and it's finally time to confess. But will Kingsley absolve his priestly lover of his sins or will this winter be the coldest one yet?

This novella takes place the December before the events of The Virgin and The Queen. Warning: Spoilers ahead--read through The Queen before reading The Scent of Winter. Stars Kingsley and Søren and a cabin in the woods...

7/10
 It's a sweet but very tame novella about Kingsley and Soren spending Christmas in a log cabin and reminiscing about the past. It was an okay read but comparing to Something Nice it had less emotional impact. It's free on the author's website, so judge for yourself.

 Милая, но очень робкая повесть по сравнениюс предыдущим рассказом от автора. Вот как-то не тронула она меня эмоционально своими воспоминаниями о прошлом Сорена и Кингсли пока они вдвоём отмечали Рождество в лесах Мэйна.В общем, нормальный рассказ,- судите сами. Он выложен на сайте автора.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
