TBR Pile

This past week Ronie Kendig posted a Facebook contest asking people to post a picture of their TBR pile. 99% of my books are on my Kindle.  So I decided to bring my TBR list here… I am part of the Amazon affiliate program so if you click on any of the links and purchase it helps cover the cost of the site. Thank you if you do, but if you don’t that’s good too!  Feel free to share in the comments what’s on your TBR pile! (If you don’t see the list you may have a pop-up blocker turned on)

Review: The Kremlin Conspiracy by Joel C. Rosenberg

About this Book

Everything he learned to protect our president, he must use to take out theirs.

With an American president distracted by growing tensions in North Korea and Iran, an ominous new threat is emerging in Moscow. A czar is rising in the Kremlin, a Russian president feverishly consolidating power, silencing his opposition, and plotting a brazen and lightning-fast military strike that could rupture the NATO alliance and bring Washington and Moscow to the brink of nuclear war. But in his blind spot is the former U.S. Secret Service agent, Marcus Ryker, trained to protect but ready to kill to save his country.

My Review

Honestly, this was a hard read for me. Early on in the book the author would jump between characters and timeframes that I found confusing. I struggled keeping track of who was who and their significance. Likewise, the story at times seemed to drag on. Please note I reviewed an unedited advanced reader copy, some of the “slow” parts may have been cleaned up for final publication.

For me, a big problem was I didn’t start caring about the main character until near the end of the story. If I had related to him more earilier maybe I would have enjoyed the story, not sure.

For people who like Jason Bourne type stories you would probably enjoy this book. Lots of action especially in the final section, although in my mind somewhat unrealistic. (Hence the Jason Bourne reference)

Based on the ending, I’m guessing this is a book one, otherwise the author is cruel.

Although, I wasn’t crazy about this book, I might read book two but I would definitely read another book by this author.

Dislaimer: I did receive this book from the publisher but was not required to give a review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

New Book Watch: My Heart Belongs in San Francisco, California: Abby’s Prospects by Janice Thompson

Journey now to San Francisco, California, of 1853 where…
An English socialite finds more treasure than expected on her trip to the American West.

When Abby Effingham becomes stranded in the middle of the California gold rush, her money depletes quickly even while her prospects for marriage increase daily. But Abby is on a mission to find her mother—not romance. Will a ridiculous scandal keep her from traveling on, or will it wake up an aloof innkeeper to the treasure right under his roof?

Samuel Harris runs a moderately priced hotel where Abby and her family’s elderly butler find shelter. He is looking forward to when she—and her parade of suitors—move on, though he concedes to let her work in his restaurant. When the sassy socialite is in trouble, will Samuel come to her rescue or find himself alone?
