Alpha Night (Psy-Changeling Trinity Book 4)

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh returns to her breathtaking Psy-Changeling Trinity series with a mating that shouldn’t exist…
 
Alpha wolf Selenka Durev’s devotion to her pack is equaled only by her anger at anyone who would harm those under her care. That currently includes the empaths who’ve flowed into her city for a symposium that is a security nightmare, a powder keg just waiting for a match.
 
Ethan Night is an Arrow who isn’t an Arrow. Numb and disengaged from the world, he’s loyal only to himself. Assigned as part of the security force at a world-first symposium, he carries a dark agenda tied to the power-hungry and murderous Consortium. Then violence erupts and Ethan finds himself crashing into the heart and soul of an alpha wolf.
 
Mating at first sight is a myth, a fairytale. Yet Selenka’s wolf is resolute: Ethan Night, broken Arrow and a man capable of obsessive devotion, is the mate it has chosen. Even if the mating bond is full of static and not quite as it should be. Because Selenka’s new mate has a terrible secret, his mind surging with a power that is a creature of madness and death…

Net Galley Book :

This story will please fans of the series . This new couple ( Arrow and wolf alpha) Ethan and Selenka find love in the darkest of times, the dangerous situations and perils making it all the more precious . Sasha Duncan playing a part, as well as the defacto ruler of the Psy Kaleb Krychek most powerful Psy ever seen makes cameo appearance as well as others from past books – so please read books in order. Nice to see another Arrow find love and a home in this trouble time ….. Lisa

Library Pick * Masked Prey

Lucas Davenport investigates a vitriolic blog that seems to be targeting the children of U.S. politicians in the latest thriller by #1 New York Times-bestselling author John Sandford.

The daughter of a U.S. Senator is monitoring her social media presence when she finds a picture of herself on a strange blog. And there are other pictures . . . of the children of other influential Washington politicians, walking or standing outside their schools, each identified by name. Surrounding the photos are texts of vicious political rants from a motley variety of radical groups.

It’s obviously alarming–is there an unstable extremist tracking the loved ones of powerful politicians with deadly intent? But when the FBI is called in, there isn’t much the feds can do. The anonymous photographer can’t be pinned down to one location or IP address, and more importantly, at least to the paper-processing bureaucrats, no crime has actually been committed. With nowhere else to turn, influential Senators decide to call in someone who can operate outside the FBI’s constraints: Lucas Davenport.

Book Review :

The book reviews of this newest book ( Book #30) in this series has been mixed . Some say too political but I found it a worthy read from this author as usual. A lots of suspense and drama out of the headlines this book makes for another Thursday Library card pick. So give it a try at the Library it’s free and you can return it if you don’t enjoy it. ….Lisa

Fixing to Die (A Southern Ladies Mystery Book 4

The New York Times bestselling author ofthe Cat in the Stacks Mysteriesand Digging Up the Dirt returns with the latest Southern Ladies Mystery…

It’s autumn down south, and An’gel and Dickce Ducote are in Natchez, Mississippi, at the request of Mary Turner Catlin, the granddaughter of an old friend. Mary and her husband, Henry Howard, live in Cliffwood, one of the beautiful antebellum homes for which Natchez is famous.

Odd things have been happening in the house for years, and the French Room in particular has become the focal point for spooky sensations. The Ducotes suspect the ghostly goings-on are caused by the living, but when a relative of the Catlins is found dead in the room, An’gel and Dickce must sift through a haunted family history to catch a killer.

Letter F

Borrowed from Library :

“Fixing to Die” is the wonderfully done fourth book in Miranda James’ Southern Ladies cozy mystery series. I just love An’gel and Dickce as characters – in their eighties (how I love older amateur sleuths!) they are feisty, a bit acerbic, not afraid to speak their minds, inquisitive, and very loyal to their friends.  Set in Natchez ,Miss t he plot was complicated but still simple enough so I thought I was going to guess the ending, however, it still gave me surprises.
