Sandra Brown’s a successful historical and romance author who (sometime in the 199os) side stepped deftly into the romantic suspense genre. She mostly gets a good balance between the two and doesn’t include too much vomit inducing or cliched sex scenes.
One of my favourite books of 2014 was the debut novel by journalist and author Lucy Atkins. The Missing One was about a woman’s search to understand more about her distant mother after her passing. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed, it as much of the novel focussed on whales and the tracking of pods. And well… when it comes to flora and fauna I’m frighteningly (though happily) ignorant.
I’ve long been a fan of Jonathan Kellerman’s Alex Delaware / Milo Sturgis series. However… after reading number 30 (Motive) recently I commented that I thought the characters were getting a bit stale. I found their lives to be less-interesting and I wondered if Kellerman was simply going through the motions.

For a lover of logic I sure am open to the idea of not-so-scientifically-tangible things like fate and alternative universes. Because I’m prone to obsess and overanalyse things however, these kinds of ideas screw with my mind as I try to explain their feasibility and / or legitimacy.
A few years ago I wrote about the whole Sliding Doors scenario (a few times) and when I first started reading Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid (TJR) I metaphorically kicked myself for requesting the book and thereby opening myself to yet another mindf*ck!
