Whiskey Sour-An Intoxicating Read

J. A. Konrath's first book within his series that details the career of one of Chicago's finest, Lt. Jack Daniels is an intoxicating read. Serial killer, The Gingerbread Man, becomes fixated on Jack when she starts tracking him. Despite the erroneous character profiling of the FBI, trying to keep from becoming a victim herself, and painstakingly nursing a bum leg, Lt. Daniels puts a stop to the killer.

Jack's ex-partner, limelight stealing, Harry McGlade and her current partner, the always ready for something to eat, Herb Benedict help Jack along the wild trail of the heinous murderer.

This thriller is sprinkled with giggle inducting one-liners from beginning to end.

If you want to be thoroughly entertained, check out Whiskey Sour.

Review-Fearless Fourteen is Fulfillingly Funning

Stephanie & Morelli are stuck playing mommy & daddy to teenage internet gamer, Zook, who could possibly be Morelli's son.

After getting bailed out of jail, Zook's mom, Loretta, is kidnapped by one of the guys that helped her brother rob a bank 10 years prior. The accomplice hopes to gain possession of the entire 9 million by killing two of the other partners.

Wedding plans are being made...
no Stephanie has not chosen Morelli or Ranger. Tank, one of Ranger's men, woke up one morning and found himself engaged to Stephanie's friend, Lula. Tank doesn't want to get married but Lula is really getting into the planning of the unexpected event. (Personally, I think it's going to very hard to turn the ex ho' into a housewife.)

Check out Janet Evanovich's current book, you'll be glad you did.

I Can't Focus!!! But I have read some good books.

I'm pretty much at a standstill on my book but I gave in to a few friends to read. Hopefully by the end of the week they will have read it and given me some much need advice on how to proceed from this point. I have some ideas in mind but I just want to see if I'm headed in the right direction.

Even though I haven't been able to write much I have been reading. I just finished Janet Evanovich's lastest, Fearless Fourteen, number 14 of her Stephanie Plum series. I'm working on a book review that I plan to post here on blogger as well as on my website ( I just started reading Pleasure by Eric Jerome Dickey. My boy is so nasty! After that I'll begin Whiskey Sour the first in a series of books by J A Konrath. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels is the main character. I've read articles and blogs written by J A but I know I'm in for a treat when I get around to reading his fiction.
