Vampire Most Wanted

Vampires Most WantedBasha Argeneau or known as Divine has been running from her family for a long time. She is fearful that she will be caught and killed along with her son. Divine will be caught by a family spy and find truths that had been hidden from her.

Marcus Notte was working for Lucien and his job was to locate Basha. He will find her but it will shock him that she will be something more to him.

Vampire Most Wanted is the twentieth book from the Argeneau Family series by Lynsay Sands. I have read all of the books to this series and am always wanting to read the next installation. I liked the book for what it was but I have to say that it took me longer to get through than most of her books. I think for one there was little to no humor that Sands usually would write especially in the beginning of the series. This book was more dire in the situation and more violent which I don’t mind but I felt that I had to force myself to read. I guess for me the beginning was slow and I wanted more to happen a little faster. Once I get over half of the book I do find myself picking up the pace because now it seems the story is moving along. It is still without much humor but the truth is becoming clear and Basha’s past is being revealed which I thought was interesting and horrible at the same time.

Sands write Basha’s past well and you feel for the character with all that she goes through. When you find out all that had happened to Basha you feel horrible for her as no person should be tormented that much. She only grows stronger as she finds the truth. I am happy that there was a light at the end of the tunnel for Basha and Marcus, and for Basha and her family.

What I thought was interesting was the mention of nanos which is usually present was not so much. Sands focuses more on the no fangers which were the bad guys and one that will be a problem as he is not caught at the end. You know that he will be trouble as he has been in the past but now his identity is known and you know he will be visiting again in the book as he will more than likely become a bigger threat. I will just have to wait for the next book to find out.

Rewriting Monday by Jodi Thomas

Jodi Thomas is a recent author that I found and so far I liked her series Whispering Mountain so I thought I would try just one of her novels.

The Plot of Rewriting Monday:

Mike McCulloch took over for his brother as editor of the Bailee Bugle out of familial obligation.  When Pepper bursts into his office and demands a job, her enthusiasm and engergy hit him like a breath of fresh air.  What’s brought this passionate reporter to his sleepy little town-and into his world?  A long time ago, Mike learned not to expect much out of life, but Pepper has awakened something in him that he thought he had lost-something that feels a lot like hope.

When the paper comes under attack, Mike and Pepper must start to rely on each other, to trust what is in their own hearts and, most importantly, to believe in themselves…”

Now I will be honest.  I liked the story but it was rather slow at parts.  It is most likely that things were happening but at a slow pace which correlated with the type of characters living there in the town.  What I did like was the msytery behind the attacker and really about the past that Mike was carrying all on his own.  At the end of the book you find out just who was a hero really.
