ME AND THE ENDING WAS A BIT JARRING I and the ending was a bit jarring I this because I am addicted to the Eve Dallas series by J D Robb That story was good but imited by the short 85 pages I ve never read the other authors before and I realize they too were dealing with space imitations But Mary Blayney s story actually managed to be extremely boring and tedious in a mere 79 pages Ruth Ryan Langan s story was plain awful The main character is supposedly the best homicide detective specializing in closing cold cases that his department has ever seen And yet he is steadfastly clueless through the entire story and when it finally wraps up he doesn t close the case The final story by Mary Kay McComas was better but barely Her similes kept pulling me out of the story Seconds crawled by ike so many snails in a gastropod parade one after another and they began to sense he d move on undetected And Like the practiced thieves that they weren t the three of them slipped around the immaculate NYCTaxiCabTales.com: Taxi Stories from streets of NYC little kitchenike eels at the bottom of the sea skirting the old woman as if she were a rock snagging bread and The Wrong Side of the Bed little cakes and a jar of plum preserves that threatened to send Nester into a visual orgasm on the spot Give me a break I only recommend this for the J D Robb story Don t bother with the others Do notike J D Robb at all but this book was saved by the three other contributing authors who saved this book This collection of four stories was entertaining I m not a fan of anthologies in general since they are too short but every so often I still give them a chanc.

"I Only Read The Story read the story Robb I glanced at the other three but they re primarily romance stories which do NOT interest meThe whole point of these کاروان امید little anthologies is to introduce readers who enjoy an established author s work to other similar authors right I know that JD Robb is a pen name for Nora Roberts I know that the stories she publishes as NR are romances If I saw an anthology anchored by an NR story I d expect it to be full of romancesHowever I don t read the NR stuff I only read her JDR books which have aittle romantic spice about the main character Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke with occasional glimpses into Eve s partner Peabody s relationship with her guy McNab That s it though Neither of those sets of relationships are the focal point of the plots The mysterycrime is the main thing and while the plots The mysterycrime is the main thing and while re set in the future with the advantages of technology we don t yet have they re essentially police procedurals I don t consider them SF uite because all the tech seems to be extrapolated from what we have now and uite plausible And of course the tech isn t the point of the stories eitherSo why not put similar stories in an anthology anchored by a JDR story Why why why Misleading and disappointing readers is NOT the way to garner any positive buzz for the کاروان امید: سرگذشت تری فاکس lesser known authors and the backlash canead to The Cat Who Sang for the Birds (Cat Who... less enthusiasm from established readersike me for the established author s work Like many if not most who read this I pretty much got it for the Eve Dallas story that Tempting Faith Di Napoli leads it off I m a huge fan of the series and the characters How in the heck do I rate Suite 606 This is a collection of four paranormal romantic suspense stories by four different authors and I had four very different reactionsFirst up and the overwhelming reason to buy this sucker is JD Robb s Ritual in Death Here we re treated to theatest doings of Eve and Roarke When the glittering society party Roarke and Eve are attending is interrupted by the appearance of a very nude very bloody man with a knife Eve thanks whatever god is watching out for her and kicks into action The corpse appears to have been a victim of a ritual sacrifice of some sort and Eve may have to resort to some extremely unorthodox techniues to catch thi.

Free read ò eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB í J.D. RobbLike all of the anthologies in this series by J D Robb Mary Blayney Ruth Ryan Langan and Mary Kay McComas the Robb and McComas stories are the best and the chief reason I buy these books Robb because I m a ong time fan and McComas because she has a wonderful flair for character and puts them into some cleverly imaginative stories I really wish she wrote but alas these anthologies seem to be her main output The Blayney and Langan stories are sometimes okay but not generally much beyond that In this particular anthology they decided to group the stories around the theme of a mystic Suite 606 plus using some time traveling characters from Mary McComas s story Both elements appear in each story sometimes significantly sometimes only in passing Robb used them to best effect I thought I found the Lanyan and Blayney stories particularly ackluster and particularly predictable this time out Even the McComas story wasn t her best but again her great touch with character and imagination saved the day for me I only read Ritual in Death It was good Not great Satanic theme again Very rushed This is a collection of short stories that all have ghostly or supernatural connotations to them I picked up the book to read the first story which was a novella from the In Death series by JD Robb and it was very interesting While it won t kill the series if you miss it it is entertaining Most of the stories were entertaining but I just wasn t that into them It took me forever to finally read all the stories in the book as I kept picking up other books that were interesting If you have nothing else to read this selection will fill your time but if you cherish your reading timefind something else Barely readable The only story I was able to finish was Ritual in Death by JD Robb and even then I felt short changed Eve was just surly well than usual and poor Roarke was reduced to sillinessI found the writing of ove endures by mary the writing of Love Endures by Mary very poor and the characters were all unlikeable If this story is representative of her writing I will not pick up any Cold Case by Ruth Ryan Langan was somewhat better and the story was interesting but I found the emotional development of the The Confident Woman: How to Take Charge and Recharge Your Life leading chracters totally ridiculous I got fed up halfway through and skimmed pages to the endDidn t even Ritual in Death JD RobbLieutenant Eve Dallas plunges into the violent aftermath of a ritualistic murder and into the mind of an alleged witness who can't remember a thing to save hisifeLove Endures Mary BlayneyInvesti.
