Over a week ago (yeah, that long), I rolled a 7 and moved from Paradise Pier 28 to Mystery Square 35. For that square, I read Don't Ever Stop by Leslie A. Kelly, a book where the MC is a police detective. The book itself was 281 pages, which added $3.00 to my Bank, bringing my balance to $79.00!
Don't Ever Stop was just as fast-paced as the first book; enjoyable with a few things I had trouble agreeing with... and a subtle love triangle that made me wince. I don't like triangles, and never thought I'd find one in a Rom Suspense, considering how much else is going on.
Anyway, moving along now.
Onto Roll #19:
I rolled an 8 and moved from Mystery Square 35 to Fantasyland 6.
Hmm... Spot the Monkey? Did my photo booth picture with my BFF scare everyone away? And there's Teddy Bear, just kind of hanging and sliding downward...
Ah well, maybe I really need to go get a treat to lure Monkey back to the board.
I haven't landed in the Fantasyland squares before, and even though I've got a list of books I could read, I had a hard time figuring out what I was in the mood for. In the end, I picked five books from my list of possibilities, and did a random draw.
Good ol' Harlequin! I've been itching to read this book ever since I stumbled across it on Scribd, even in spite of all the less than ideal reviews.
To the Rescue by Jean Barrett is set in Yorkshire, England. It is 292 pages, which will be worth $6.00 upon completion.
I am still reading, and finishing up my first Free Friday read, which is also worth $6.00; so no matter which book I finish first, it will bring my next Bank Balance update to $85.00!
