The Hunt for the Big Bad Wolf/E.M. Tippetts


    "Chloe knew she was giving up the quiet life when she married Hollywood A-lister, Jason Vanderholt. She expected harassment from paparazzi but not from the writers of Blood Ritual, a television crime drama that brought national attention to a tough case she is trying to solve as a forensic scientist. While she and the rest of the Albuquerque Police Department once collaborated with the show, now relations have gone sour, and details that the police are trying to keep secret in the investigation are cropping up in episodes watched by millions.

If that weren’t enough, everyone in Chloe’s life seems to be going through a rough patch, from her best friend, Lori, who is trying to plan a wedding, to her niece Kyra who is upset about Jason’s choice of television roles, to Jason himself who is inexplicably moody and withdrawn. None of this drama is the type of thing Chloe knows how to resolve.

She is trained to do one thing: hunt down the big bad wolves of the world. But with her connections to fame compromising her work, she may not even be allowed to stay on the case. The clock is ticking as law enforcement agencies across the country try to find a serial killer before he strikes again. Chloe is faced with a choice, to help catch one of the most evil criminals in history, or provide support to the friends and family who have always been there for her. Either way, she feels she might make the mistake of a lifetime."


    Satisfied in the catching of the Big Bad Wolf! I want to see what happens in the future, maybe a baby Vanderholt......? The world keeps turning and a well deserved closure comes in an unexpected way for Chloe while in her work life. 
    Chloe for me has a great outlook on life. She doesn't over react and seems to always be the voice of reason to those around her. When she sets her mind to it she gets things done, even when she is taken off a case.
   For someone who has had to deal with what she has for most of her life, she seems like a good role model to look up to. She does have her insecurities as everyone does, and that is what makes her human.
    I have read most of Emily's books and am a big fan of her writing and style. Such a great imagination and researcher. Every character is different and has a touch of something unique. If you are looking for a series of books with romance, drama, and comedy with a touch of fairytale happily ever after, then don't pass up this series.

Eve: In the Beginning/H.B. Moore


    "In a world where everything is perfect, yet the same day after day, Eve must decide if she wants to live forever in the garden with Adam and never know what lies beyond the walls. When she makes a choice with terrible consequences, the pain of mortality is swift. As she and Adam explore their new world, and her body changes, Eve discovers the sweetness of first love with the man who has always been at her side."


    What a great perspective on the life of our Mother Eve! I couldn't imagine starting out with nothing, and experiencing things for the first time without having knowledge before hand of the obstacles outside of their Eden.
    The first half of the book has to do with Adam and Eve living in the garden. When things start changing with the now sudden appearance of Lucifer, they don't know what to make of it since living in pretty much the same routine day by day.
    The last half of the book deals with them out in the world. Experiencing their first snow, their first kill, all that comes with a life and surviving it.
    I love the relationship between Adam and Eve and the constant support they gave each other while trying to make sense of their new world.
    Although we really don't know how hard life really was for our first parents, Heather probably wasn't far off any of the struggles they most likely had to endure. I am even more grateful now then ever before for their sacrifice!
