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.

Second Grave on the Left by Darynda Jones - out today!

Second Grave on the Left (Charley Davidson, Book 2)When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she can’t help but wonder what Cookie’s up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously? Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown. They show up at the coffee shop, but no Mimi. But Charley finds a message on the bathroom wall. Mimi left a clue, a woman’s name. Mimi’s husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been found murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.

Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He’s left his body because he’s being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can’t let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they’ll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven…well, let’s just say it wouldn’t be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do?(courtesy of Amazon)
Darynda Jones puts it all together in one amazing read! Jones first book grabbed me with the cover, and once I cracked it open she had me locked. Second Grave keeps it going, and has another awesome cover too.

Charley is such an amazing character, she’s got so many different facets to her and yet she just seems so totally cool! Jones does an amazing job. I love the humor, the hunks and the hotness, all wrapped up with murder and mystery. There’s not just one story line, each book has individual ones, tied into the bigger picture. And with all the fun mixed in, you really can’t go wrong. I just lent these out to my sister and bought my friend the first so she could get started.  Book 2 is just released today, so hurry up! 

Jones keeps so many of the different directions going so smoothly in her writing.  Between Charley, Cookie and Reyes, you just can't go wrong with this series.  I will say, Jones tossed a little emotion at me towards the end, I just love Charley!  Check out our review on Book 1
