Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Wicked Appetite by Janet Evanovich

Wicked AppetiteLife in Marblehead has had a pleasant predictability, until Diesel arrives. Rumor has it that a collection of priceless ancient relics representing the Seven Deadly Sins have made their way to Boston’s North Shore. Partnered with pastry chef Lizzie Tucker, Diesel bullies and charms his way through historic Salem to track them down—and his criminal mastermind cousin Gerewulf Grimorie. The black-haired, black-hearted Wulf is on the hunt for the relic representing gluttony. Caught in a race against time, Diesel and Lizzie soon find out that more isn’t always better, as they battle Wulf and the first of the deadly sins. (courtesy of Amazon)

I expected a little more from this book.  I LOVE the Stephanie Plum series.  Diesel had been introduced in our Plum in between books.  I did end up liking where the book went, but wanted a little more with the humor and plot.  I will patiently await the 2nd Unmentionable book in this new series.  Evanovich has kept me involved in her series as well, I just felt a few things were a little off base.

I love the way Evanovich ends this one.  She is known to leave you guessing, and in the first pages of the next book you learn what really happened!  Diesel is his tough, sexy self.  Lizzy has a bit to learn in the new world of unmentionables.  Good humor and an interesting mystery!
