Review: "The Hunter" (Robert Hunter, #0.5) by Chris Carter

The Hunter - Chris Carter

I was going with a 4 stars-rating initially, but the book ends at 57% and the rest is a sneak preview for The Crucifix Killer. And since this isn't a freebie, I'm taking half a star off for that.

Review: "A Party to Murder" by John Inman

A Party to Murder - John Inman

I thoroughly enjoyed this hybrid between

 

"And Then There Were None",

 

 

"Murder, She Wrote",

 

 

and "Clue".

 

 

And even though I figured out who the murderer was quite early in the book (it really was that obvious, unfortunately), the story kept me glued to my Kindle until the big finale.

 

Oh, and Jamie and Derek were so freaking adorable. I usually don't like stories with an already established couple. But even though they already were together in the beginning of the book (they were childhood friends who just recently decided to become friends with benefits), we got some glimpses into their past that made me feel like I wasn't missing out on something. It was really cute how they interacted and cared for each other (all that touching, hand-holding and caressing made me swoon and sigh throughout the book).

 

Recommended!

Review: "A Chip and A Chair" (Seven of Spades, #5) by Cordelia Kingsbridge

A Chip and A Chair - Cordelia Kingsbridge

 

Wow, I’m… I'm totally speechless.

 

What. A. Ride!

 

 

This is hands down one of the best mystery/crime series (both M/M and non-M/M) I have ever read.

 

I can’t believe that every, and I mean EVERY question raised in the first 4 books, has been answered, and every little detail has been explained. No questions left unanswered here, folks.

 

Now THIS is how you do a fucking series finale, authors. Take notes!

 

 

This final instalment was so very satisfying and such a brilliant conclusion to an all-around amazing series.

 

I cannot recommend this series highly enough. It will forever be one of my all-time Top 5 favorite series.

 

I already miss Levi, Dominic, Rebel, Martine, Leila, Natasha, and every other of these so very well-developed characters. It feels like saying good-bye to real people, and while this is first and foremost an acknowledgment to this author's talent, I always hate feeling like this after I finish a book or series.

 

HUGE BOOK HANGOVER IS HUGE!

 

 

Cordelia Kingsbridge, I thank you and I bow to you.

Nope. This wasn’t any easier the second time. Still heart-breaking, but also still brilliant and outstanding, and so very, very well-written.

 

 

And I officially declare this as one of my all-time Top 3 favorite series.

 

You can quote me on that.
