Books and Reviews – July 04, 2016

Good morning!

I hope you all had a great weekend and for those of us in the US – Happy Fourth of July!

I am still in the middle of a PsyCop series marathon.  PsyCop is a fun, sexy, fast paced series by Jordan Castillo Price.   I have had many friends recommend it and I am glad I (finally)  listened to them.  Thank you!

I just finished Ghostv, PsyCop #6  The series starts out with Among the Living and it is about three hours long.  The books gradually get longer with Camp Hell (Book 5) coming in at 10 hours and 55 minutes.  Ghostv  at 12 hours and 6 minutes.  It was so much fun!   They are addictive.

There are several Short stories in the series too and four are free on Jordan Castillo Price’s website.  These include Inside Out PsyCop 0.1  Thaw PsyCop 1.1 (I listened to the audio),  Mindreader PsyCop 2.3, and Stroke of Midnight PsyCop 3.1.

I am working my way through these as I get a chance. Busy week!

Blurb:  We’re getting the band back together.

Those five words send a chill down Miki St. John’s spine, especially when they’re spoken with a nearly religious fervor by his brother-in-all-but-blood, Damien Mitchell. However, those words were nothing compared to what Damien says next.

And we’re going on tour.

When Crossroads Gin hits the road, Damien hopes it will draw them closer together. There’s something magical about being on tour, especially when traveling in a van with no roadies, managers, or lovers to act as a buffer. The band is already close, but Damien knows they can be more—brothers of sorts, bound not only by familial ties but by their intense love for music.

As they travel from gig to gig, the band is haunted by past mistakes and personal demons, but they forge on. For Miki, Damie, Forest, and Rafe, the stage is where they all truly come alive, and the music they play is as important to them as the air they breathe.

But those demons and troubles won’t leave them alone, and with every mile under their belts, the band faces its greatest challenge—overcoming their deepest flaws and not killing one another along the way.

Thoughts:  I loved this book! This is the fifth book in the series and  I recommend you read the series from the beginning.   Here is a link to a review that I think sums up my feelings on this book and the series in general:
