Devil’s Gold

Despite being chronically late, occasionally disheveled and a tad disorganized, Dixie Knight is one of the top private investigators in the country, and when a young woman goes missing in the small, Southern town of Devil’s Den, Dixie takes the case. She expected it to be another ordinary missing person case—until Lizzie Meyers is found naked and beaten to death at a local, seedy motel.

While visiting relatives on his two-week leave, Marine Liam Cash bumps into Dixie at the local bar, and his attraction to her is immediate. When Liam connects Dixie’s current case to two unsolved murders in his hometown, he steps in to help find the killer, and keep her safe, whether Dixie wants him to or not.

After another woman is found brutally beaten, Dixie turns the town upside down trying to solve the mystery—could it be the rumored witch that lives in the mountains; the rich, neurotic doctor’s wife; or the perky, blonde receptionist at the local medical clinic?

Time is running out and Dixie knows she has to put the pieces of the puzzle together before another body turns cold in Devil’s Den.

This gorgeous looking cover was the first thing that caught my attention about Devil’s Gold by Amanda McKinney, but it was the phrase “Chronically late, occasionally disheveled and a tad disorganized” that kept it. I knew instantly that I was fated to read this book about a woman who sound so much like me that it isn’t even funny. And guess what, I totally wasn’t disappointed.

Waiting on but still Can’t Wait Wednesdays #2

Can't Wait Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa of Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read.

I’ve decided to adopt these memes for Words That Fly, except that I’ll only be doing it every month on the last Wednesday of the month, and I’ll be using it to highlight those books that I absolutely can’t wait until they’re released and I can get my hands on them.

This month, it’s Alexa Donne‘s debut novel, Brightly Burning, which is basically a Jane Eyre retelling but in space. I came across this author’s name when she was tagged in another 2018 debut author’s youtube video. Of course I wandered over to her page to see what she had to offer, and wow was I blown away. I not only love her energy, her passion and her personality but her abounding love of books and her desire to educate all writers about writing and the publishing world. It also helps that her book also sounds like it’s absolutely amazing. For a taste of awesome, you guys can check out the excerpt of her first chapter here or check out her youtube channel here. And yeah I am a total fangirl and I haven’t even read her book yet #notashamed.

Seventeen-year-old Stella Ainsley wants just one thing: to go somewhere—anywhere—else. Her home is a floundering spaceship that offers few prospects, having been orbiting an ice-encased Earth for two hundred years. When a private ship hires her as a governess, Stella jumps at the chance. The captain of the Rochester, nineteen-year-old Hugo Fairfax, is notorious throughout the fleet for being a moody recluse and a drunk. But with Stella he’s kind.

But the Rochester harbors secrets: Stella is certain someone is trying to kill Hugo, and the more she discovers, the more questions she has about his role in a conspiracy threatening the fleet.

Have any of you guys heard of Brightly Burning? What are your thoughts? And what books are you guys waiting for this Wednesday?

Renny Landry is a wolf on the run. Pursued by a shapeshifting stalker and his slobbering pack of killer coyotes, she is forced to flee her job as a librarian to find sanctuary in the wooded hills of Alpha, Washington. A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite—for her…

Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate—and disarmingly hot—Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?

IMWAYR

I am back from an extended vacation. After being sick for the first week of the new year, I was full of nerves for the second week as I waited for my exam results. And my hard work paid off! I totally passed! Not that I wasn’t still surprised but happily so. After that win, I feel like I’ve been in limbo, studying had become such a big part of me that I wasn’t sure what to do now I no longer have to study. I shook myself out of that stupor last week because obviously that so much book reading time wasted. And now that I’m out of that funk, here’s another “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?”!

This feature is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date with the YA version being hosted by Kellee of Unleashing Readers and Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts. It’s a great way to share what you’ve read, plan out your reading week, and to take a peek at what great books other people are reading!

Trickster's Choice     Wild Magic

You guys  probably remember me mentioning that I’m a big fan of Tamora Pierce so I spent the last couple of weeks reading her Trickster’s duology, which starts with Trickster’s Choice, and The Immortals quartet.

Wicked Charm

So I read Pretty Dead Girls by Monica Murphy two months ago, and I found myself really enjoying it. That’s why when I saw Wicked Charm by Amber Hart and read the blurb, I knew I had to read this intriguing mystery thriller. Keeping my fingers crossed that it’s as good as it looks and sounds!
