Book #45

A Grown-Up Kind of PrettyA Grown-Up Kind of Pretty by Joshilyn Jackson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Her books never disappoint me and this one is no exception. Great story about a flawed, but believable family of women. My only complaint is that it didn't go into enough detail about the things that happened early on. I wish Joshilyn Jackson had made this one a trilogy with a book for each story. Ginny's, Liza's and wrapped it all up with Mosey's. I just wanted more.

Criminal (Will Trent, #7)Criminal by Karin Slaughter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Karin Slaughter is amazing. This book was wonderful. We learned so much about Will Trent and his family. The flashbacks were great. Loved reading about Amanda and her early years as a detective in the Atlanta Police Department and the role she had in Will's early life. The crimes and detective work in this book were brutal. The detective work was smart. I'm just sad that I have to wait a year for another book by Karin Slaughter.

Book # 43

Stolen Prey (Lucas Davenport, #22)Stolen Prey by John Sandford
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An unthinkable crime. Brutal. An entire family tortured and killed. As Lucas Davenport and the BCA in Minnesota investigate this crime, it leads to a Mexican drug cartel and it's laundered money that has been stolen after it was laundered. A Federale comes north to help with the investigation and brings with him an assistant. There are other facets to the murders. Who are the murderers, who stole the money, where is the money? There's a secondary crime that Virgil Flowers is trying to solve. Lucas is mugged by a couple of tweakers while out jogging.
I love John Sandford and I love the Prey books. This one is another great one. The suspense of the man hunt for the brutal killers. The search for the the the mastermind behind the stolen money. The only thing I didn't like was the very end. I won't spoil it for you by telling you what I didn't like, but it just felt wrong to me.
