Breaking the Eternal Curse

Lucky Break is the third book of the Carly Phillips series Lucky. I have only read this book but from seeing how it ended I am definetily wanting to know how it started and how the cousins found a way around the curse.

Jason Corwin is the big man on campus as he is an ex Olympic Snowboarded but a rumor ended his career and sent him packing home. He started as a carpenter in his home town and as luck would have it a new job would be coming his way. Lauren Perkins was home and things will now be settled between them.

Lauren Perkins was given no choice to leave at seventeen but now she is back if only for a little. Her grandmothers house needs to be fixed and sold. Jason her teenage heartthrob and man she gave her virginity to was the only one available. She wanted to have another chance with Jason if only for the time she was here. And things move into that direction but problems start coming there way as problems with the house start to occur and Jason and Lauren will have to work together to solve the problem and break the curse.

I liked that this was a book of second chances. The third book gives the characters chances to heal which the curse brought to the families and for old feelings to rekindle.  Phillips makes the book steamy with the sex scenes as the two characters are now grown up and know what they are doing.

Lauren and Jason’s characters were steamy and playful which kept the book light but there was a serious side as feelings and thoughts are expressed which makes the book have more depth.

I liked how Phillips created the end to have that ending you were hoping for which helped all of the Corwins and Lauren Perkins. Lucky Break was a great finish.

5th Horseman by James Patterson

I was instantly intrigued by the title of James Patterson’s book, 5th Horseman.  I wanted to know what this other horseman would be like since the four brings the apocalypse.

The Plot:

“A young mother is recuperating in a San Francisco hospital when she is suddenly gasping for breath.  Help doesn’t come in time.  The hospital doctors, some of the best in the nation, are completely mystified by her death.  This is not the first such case at the hospital.  Just as patients are about to be released with a clean bill of health, their conditions take a devastating turn for the worse.

Accompanied by the newest member of the Women’s Murder Club, Yuki Castellano, Lieutenant Lindsay Boxer probes deeper into the deaths.  Is a manic playing God?  When someone close to her begins to exhibit the same frightening symptoms, Lindsay fears no one is safe.  But the hospital is determined to shield its reputation at all costs.  And while the hospital wages a court battle that grips the entire nation, Lindsay and the Women’s Murder Club must hunt a merciless killer.”

Again another heart-stopping suspense, mystery book by James Patterson.  I was drawn into the plot.  This book seemed a little different from the others that have been written.  I liked the idea of a killer in the hospital.  It was a new twist that was not done before for the murder club.

The end again was something I wasn’t sure on. One of the guys that was the actual doctor was scum and you hoped that he was the bad guy and hoped that he would go to jail for a very long time.  But everything was not as it appeared to be in true mystery/suspense novels.  James Patterson leaves you on the seat as Lindsay Boxer and the Women’s Murder Club searches for the murderer.
