One Foot in the Grave, by Jeaniene Frost

Blurb from back of the book – Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. When Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.
Being around Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she’ll find that desire lasts forever…and Bones won’t let her get away again.

My thoughts – Second book in the series, as good as the first! Cat has a purpose now, with a shadowy government agency, and she’s using all the dirty tricks Bones taught her. She’s left him though, and her life seems pretty grim. I enjoyed the dialogue and action in this book, and the friends and soldiers she’s gathering make this book a good read


Book Review – Don’t make me beautiful, by Elle Casey

a very predictable book, with little suspense, and no technical knowledge of writing or the world. A woman admitted into a hospital with life threatening injuries resulting from abuse would not be booted out because of lack of funds, and no hospital would have a billing rep go into a patient room to harass the patient, and he/she would not have had access to the medical charts. An abused woman would have had counselors in the hospital, and been given directions to shelters, etc. The problems with tense in this book (past, present and future) was distracting. It wasn’t bad enough for me to give up on, yet I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. Definitely a “meh”, and I won’t go looking for any more from the author
