SWEETHEART BY CHELSEA CAIN
“Chelsea Cain calls forth another thriller featuring the notorious serial killer Gretchen Lowell. Cain has laced this series with an intoxicating substance; one which will have you coming back again and again.”
He wiped his mouth with the back of his hand. “I need to take a shower,” he said.
“It’s down the hall,” she said. “Second door on the left. You’ll find everything you need.”
“My sanity?” he said.
She leaned forward as if to kiss him, but instead put her lips next to his ear, her cheek millimeters from his. The smell of her made him dizzy. Her breath was warm but sent a cold shiver down his spine.
“Long gone, darling,” she whispered.
After Cain’s mesmerizing novel Heartsick ending, we all knew that we hadn’t seen the last of the infamous serial killer Gretchen Lowell. After ten years of chasing down the Beauty Killer and then getting caught by the one he chased, the former detective Archie Sheridan still can’t get over the tie that binds him to her. In Sweetheart Archie’s best friend and detective Henry as well as his wife step in and stage a whole intervention scene. They are severing all ties between Archie and Gretchen. Henry explains that they are moving her to a place far out of his reach and banning all phone calls and visits with her. It doesn’t matter that every time Archie visits her she gives up another name of another victim. It’s just not worth it anymore. Continue reading

Danger Run 2014
I got to do my first Danger Run this year with my best girl Ashley.
We even decorated my car for it. I was the driver and Ashley the scavenger hunt clue reader. Together we solved the puzzles and clues and drove down windy roads…managed to get lost a few times, turned around other times (but aren’t you supposed to?) We made our way to the first haunted visit: Darkness Falls on Asylum Continue reading
Note: There are SPOILERS here. Also, my thoughts bounce around. I viewed this episode first for pleasure and natural curiosity and then the second time I made my notes. Of course some of these thoughts will be out of order only because I am thinking ahead at times as I view this a second time
The introduction with the dinosaur spitting out the TARDIS was an interesting opening. I also liked that the viewer wasn’t privy to the entire scenes of the regeneration of the Doctor. And hello…when Clara opened the door, pretty hot look I thought. LOL However I liked when the Doctor opened the door. ‘Shush’. The whole confusion, his obvious lack of understanding of everything…I don’t know if I liked that really. I mean, I can completely understand Clara’s inability to trust the new doctor…I mean, he doesn’t even remember her. “You really let yourself go.” (funny). “You’re very similar heights”. The obvious laughable moments mingled in with the bittersweet frustrations Clara was feeling.
*Intro* I like the whole steampunk clockwork intro. Very nice. The dark sinister eyes was a plus…showing me, letting me agree with my original belief that this doctor would be ‘darker’.
“Why is there only a bed in it?” I don’t understand why the doctor doesn’t understand the concept of the bedroom. It was confusing. To me anyway. I mean, he understands who he is. The size of his brain would be like a piano dropping on her head…but he can’t understand the concept of a bedroom? Odd. Continue reading
The Shattered Door
by: Lisa Bouchard
The world is made up of telepaths and nontelepaths. There are some very powerful people who do not like the telepaths and want to bring them all down. The Telepathic Corps is getting very uncivil in their approach to taking them out too.
Darcy and Olivia Morrison, twin sisters who also have their own (new) private investigators office are closet telepaths; not that they are ashamed of what or who they are, but they do value their lives. Only it’s becoming increasingly difficult for them, and they have enough troubles already what with a asshole of a ‘mentor’ if you can call him that, a thug-boss on their behinds over a lost pet, and a load of debt with little income coming in.

Book Review: Don’t Let Me Go by Catherine Ryan Hyde
A run-down apartment complex holds the most isolated tenants who live worlds apart even though they are right beside each other.
Each tenant has their own issues. Billy struggles with agoraphobia. Felipe lives with a broken heart. Ms. Hinman is nearly 100 years old, widowed, and fears the future when she will no longer be able to walk down the steps from her second story apartment. Mr. Lafferty hates all people. Eileen is addicted to drugs. And Grace is Eileen’s 9 year old daughter. She sits outside waiting to be noticed; waiting for someone to realize that trouble is all around her.
One day someone does. But is it too late?
This amazing story, by the author of the novel turned film Pay it Forward, will call out to your heart, tug at your spirit, and will pull you into the richly developed lives between the pages.
Grace is your typical poverty-stricken child who lives one day away from being removed from her family by the ‘system’ It is only when one woman, fearful of that very system and who doesn’t want to see Grace get lost in it steps up and takes it upon herself do the tenants become key players in Grace’s life. They don’t want to because a child is of course a burden and not their burden to bear but it isn’t long until Grace melt’s their hardened hearts and the phrase ‘it takes a village’ truly comes alive.
