I have to start reading more contemporary romances. I have bunches of them in my TBR pile, but I tend to skip over them and go for the romantic suspense.

I have books by both Erica Spindler and Kendra Elliot in my TBR pile but haven't read any of them. Have you read other books by these authors? Any you would recommend?

I tend to go through phases and this month I caught up on a lot of ongoing contemporary series. Sometimes I'm looking for a slower romance, which tends to be difficult to achieve in the romantic suspense genre since many times the H/h are thrown together and put in peril rather quickly.

I'm amazed myself :oops: Until I started writing it down, I hadn't realized how much I read in a month. I hope I can continue :D

Hi, Robin. I have read several novels by Erica Spindler and can recommend the following: 'Bone Cold', 'Cause For Alarm', 'Killer Takes All' and 'Dead Run'. Her stories lean more to the suspense side, but there is generally a nice love story woven in.

As for Kendra Elliot, the only book of hers I have read is 'Hidden' and I was not particularly impressed. The h started out as likeable, but as the story progressed, she became less so. That being said, I would urge you to try her books--you may enjoy them.

Hi All,

This took quite awhile to fill out and I only had a few books to consider. Wow! to you, Beauty with 24.

Here's what I finally decided on...

What did you think of the books you read in June?

1. How many books did you read? -10 - most of them were audible

2. What genres come to the fore? - Mainstream Suspense Thrillers

3. What was your favorite book of the month? - Hard to choose but because it was such an emotional tearjerker I'll go with... Cemetery Dance by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (5/09) [Agent Pendergast - 9] (A N/A)

4. What was the worst book you read this month? - The Final Cut by Catherine Coulter and J. T. Ellison (9/13) (C N/A)

5. Who was your favorite book boyfriend in June? - Dawson Scott, compassionate journalist, in Deadline by Sandra Brown (B+ Hot), because he was so good with Amelia's two sons for one thing.

6. Were there any characters you didn't care for? - There were times that Lila made me crazy in The Collector by Nora Roberts (4/1) (B Warm), but I can't really say that I didn't care for her.

7. Who was your favorite villain? - Diogenes in The Book of the Dead by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (5/06) [Agent Pendergast - 7] [Diogenes Trilogy - 3] (A Subtle)

8. Who was your favorite heroine (kick-ass or not) this month? - Constance Green in The Book of the Dead by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (5/06) [Agent Pendergast - 7] [Diogenes Trilogy - 3] (A Subtle)

--Janie
