Books I read in October 2016

Hazardous Duty by Christy Barritt ***

I sort of joined another book club but I haven't gone to any of the meetings yet because the times were changed.  This was a book I read for that book club.  It is about an aspiring forensic specialist who had to drop out of college so is instead a crime scene cleaner.  It was set in Virginia Beach which I liked.

Kiss of a Stranger by Sarah M. Eden ****

Another one from my sort of book club.  I was a little skeptical about this book, I guess because the
title seemed a little cheesy.  I LOVED it though.  The book is about a couple who was forced to marry and then eventually fell in love.  You knew from the first that would happen but it was still enjoyable from start to finish.

The Captive by Julie Coulter Bellon ***

Julie is my neighbor (and friends with the previous two authors).  I got this book from a Relief Society service auction where she gave a few of the books she'd written and some hot chocolate and a fleece blanket.  It was a book lover's basket and I was all in.  I liked this book.  It's about a task force (joint American and Canadian) assigned to rescue a kidnapped diplomat.  It was a departure from what I usually read but I like departures like this one.  There's another book in the series that I'm looking forward to as well.

The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown ***

This book was about three sisters.  Their father was a professor of Shakespeare, hence the title and the entire book was sprinkled with lines from Shakespeare.  I enjoyed this book.  I particularly liked how it was written in plural first person.  I think I have a fondness for anything about three sisters since I am one of three.  I loved this:
All we knew was that we were wild and venturesome, and the night was ours, and there was power in the three of us, the Weird Sisters, hand in hand.
I have felt that power of three in my life.  These sisters were very different from my sisters and me but there were a few similarities too.  There are undeniable oldest, middle and youngest sister roles.
