Idle ThursdayIdle Thursday by Kelly Moran

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm a big Kelly Moran Fan!

This book shook me up! I laughed, cried, and changed my ways!

The narrator of the book is a typical housewife. She goes through her day narrating getting the kids off to school, the hubby off to work, and shares her thought process of wanting to get new drapes. On her way to get said drape tragedy happens.

The scenes from the wreck to the hospital, were heart breaking. What she witnesses in the room from her children and husband was mind numbing heartbreak.

Kelly did an admirable job conveying the outcome of dying and a possible scenario. Her imagery after death and the funeral are so surreal, it made my heart ache.

I loved this book and it touched me, deep into my soul. It made me realize that what I hold important, is that more precious. Anything could change in an instant.

I always wait a few extra seconds at stop sign and lights, but now I wait just a little more.

Sixth Grave on the Edge (Charley Davidson, #6)Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read in this series. I was gifted the book for an honest review.

I loved it and have found another great series, I am ready to go back and dive into!

It seems trouble knows how to find Charley, especially in her profession.The naked guy in her front seat is hilarious, right off the bat.

The friendship and humor of cookie keeps Charley on her toes. Then there is Reyes, the sexy, son of evil himself. He is persistent in his request for Charley's hand in marriage and that is left underlying through out the book until the end.

The drama from multiple angles and relationships was intriguing. The mystery behind why Charley's dad decides to up and leave the horrible mother-in-law. That's a dynamic I'm curious to see how it plays out.

Charley gets a hold of a file on her boyfriend Reyes that sends her looking for answers that are better left alone. This investigation into the handsome mystery of her sexy man will create a conundrum of consequences.

The book is well written, with strong, complex characters. I am anxious to go back to book one and see how it all falls into place. I won't spoil the Charley/Reyes moment.
