The Pillars of the EarthThe Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quickie review:

Astounding. Amazing. Breathtaking story of the building of cathedrals throughout Europe. MUST read for lovers of Medieval fiction/historical fiction/non-fiction.

And, it’s Ken Follett. Nuff said.

The Valcourt Heiress (Medieval Song, # 7)The Valcourt Heiress by Catherine Coulter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Quickie Review:

A woman with a secret, a man with barely a plan. Together, they must stop the Black Knight before he murders again!

There’s magic, mayhem, and more than just an idle romance. I love the characters, setting, and allowed myself to be immersed in this medieval tale…would recommend to anyone who enjoys a fun, fast paced story! Sparkling repartee between characters & authentic sounding dialect. LOVED it.

Veil of Lies (Crispin Guest, #1)Veil of Lies by Jeri Westerson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quickie Review:

So much fun. Another action packed medieval tale, this one told by a 14th century Private Investigator. With all the moxy of a PI in the 40s, Crispin Guest is out to solve a murder, and find a holy relic! He gets my vote for troubled hero to follow. Will be reading Serpent in the Thorns, next. Thanks, Jeri Westerson, for creating such a memorable character!

Odd Thomas (Odd Thomas, #1)Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quickie Review:

Odd Thomas slammed me into the story, and wouldn’t let go. I followed along, trusting Dean Koontz to lead me where he would. He devastated me, left me sobbing, and then picked me up again to lead me to the next in this series of stories. Mesmerizing and spiritual, told by a master.

The SearchThe Search by Nora Roberts

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quickie Review:

I love everything Nora Roberts writes. This story, of a dog trainer / search and rescue educator who falls in love with a very “Sawyer” from LOST-like hero. Really. And I loved Sawyer. SO, perhaps that’s who Nora had in mind, or perhaps that’s just where my mind went. At any rate, just like always, I bought into her tale, picked it up on a Friday, set it down on a Sunday, and closed it feeling satisfied and smarter. What’s better than an author whom you can trust? NOTHING. The end.

Sullivan's LawSullivan’s Law by Nancy Rosenberg

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quickie Review:

I like Nancy Taylor Rosenberg. She’s gritty, though, be warned. I like the way her characters think. I like the fanciful notions of her crime-solving character, Sullivan. Read it. I’d go with 3.5, but she’s worth the extra half-star. More books in this series. Worth spending time with.
