Each month, I will post up a pair (or more) of books. I would like you to vote on a choice. Yes! You will have the job of telling me what to read from my pile each month. I welcome your vote no matter what reason you choose (frivolous, serious or otherwise) that particular book and do share your reason in the comments just because I’m nosy. I will of course share my thoughts on the book itself in my review post.
The theme this month is Short and (maybe) Sweet. We’re tacking the novellas sitting on my pile.
Junkyard by Lindsay Buroker
#.5 Fractures Stars
McCall Richter works as a skip tracer, tracking down criminals, con men, and people who stop making payments on their fancy new spaceships.
Her job description says nothing about locating vast quantities of stolen maple syrup, but thanks to her helpful new android employee, she finds herself tramping through a “sugar house” on a frosty moon full of suspicious characters. The only witness to the crime? The junkyard dog next door.
Junkyard is a stand-alone novella set two years before Fractured Stars.
You Again by Carolyn Scott
Lily McAllister never wanted to see Luke Tanner again after their split two years ago. The by-the-book cop made it perfectly clear he didn’t want to marry into the city’s first family of crime after he found out Lily was one of those McAllisters. So when he turns up at her house, shutting the door in his face seems like the best thing to do, especially since she’s just broken the law. She would have done it too if he hadn’t handcuffed her. Now she’s got to explain why he shouldn’t arrest her for stealing a diamond necklace when her face is on the CCTV footage. And she’s got to ignore the feelings resurfacing between them.
