This Year I Am Reading…
The third installment to The Paul Monroe Mystery, this is a darker, grittier offering with the same nitty, gritty procedural investigation. I actually finished this as of this writing so check out my full review here.
Last Year I Was Reading…
When the world labels a man and judges them blindly, is it possible to ever find love?

I did an audio review of this contemporary single dad romance between an artist and a firefighter. Today is the second book of the Single Dads series but the first one I read. It’s a highly enjoyable low-angst, feel good romance with very likable characters but it’s not a very memorable book for me.
My 3.5-star review here.
These are two contemporary books. One is a police procedural, the other is pure contemporary romance. Death Comes To Main Street featured an established couple and tackled serious topics such as homophobia and hate crimes. The main character in Today had a disability but this is the not focus. It focused more on the romance and the challenges of being a single dad. The overall tone of the story was humorous and light. I think both books fall somewhere between like and love although, I still have to decide on a final rating for Paul Monroe.
I’m ending the post with a book I’m looking forward to reading.
Charles Grimes hasn’t celebrated Christmas in years, so spending December in San Francisco while keeping an eye out for monsters sounds like an easy way to earn a few bucks. He should have learned by now that nothing is ever easy—not his job, not his existence as the son of an angel, and not his relationship with a formerly captive demon. It’s going to take more than a few rounds of Jingle Bells to make Charles feel the joys of the season.

I’m so happy Kim Fielding is giving us another Grimes and Tenrael story! They are the half-angel and demon couple from the first Bureau story, Corruption. It’s a short story of only 46 pages but Caroled is a longer story at 110 pages. This is a wonderful holiday treat! Always a YES to more Grimes and Ten.
What were you reading this time last year?
(I hope it’s as riveting as Morticia’s book)
