Behind Closed Doors: The most emotional and intriguing psychological suspense thriller you can’t put down Hardcover – August 9, 2016 by B. A. Paris

Worth Getting in Bed For? Yes. although this had somewhat of an abrupt ending, I still liked it and read it straight through. I liked that there was a character with cerebral palsy featured prominently and was portrayed as a capable and independent young woman. The main characters were well conceived and the past and present narrative worked. There were many questions left unanswered but my imagination is running wild.

Dry Bones: A Longmire Mystery Paperback – April 26, 2016 by Craig Johnson

Worth Getting in Bed For? Yes. This wasn’t my favorite entry in the Walt Longmire series but it was still a good read. I liked the focus on the dig that found the dinosaur bones and the legal initiatives that came with it. The characters are well developed and the dialogue witty. The mystery seemingly played second to the other story line which is left hanging. Overall, a solid read.

Chased by Love (Love in Bloom: The Ryders): Trish Ryder Paperback – August 17, 2016 by Melissa Foster

Worth Getting in Bed For?

This isn’t my favorite Melissa Foster but she still delivers. The rock star and actress partnering were not as relatable as some of her other pairings but I appreciate the fantasy element and the attempted normalcy of some of their personal problems. Boone and Trish are a hot couple with loads of chemistry but Boone is hiding turmoil in his personal life that is distracting him from his movie role and Trish has to get them on board for this film. Every kiss sizzles and there is plenty of heat. Foster delves into drug addiction and family commitment. The dialogue snaps and the story flows. Foster is always a solid entry in Romance reading.

Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction Paperback – August 1, 2015 by Candace Cameron Bure (Author),Erin Davis (Author)

Worth Getting in Bed For? This is a chronicle of Cameron Bure’ s stint on Dancing With the Stars and how she used it as a platform to maintain and share her faith. It is an interesting look at DWTS as well as a compelling journey of her testimony. There are some good biblical references here, Esther and David, for example. This is more about her testimony than her dancing. Regardless of faith, it is an interesting look at the celebrity’ s beliefs and the show.
