My holiday reading...
...admidst all the furniture assembly and techno-stuff, I did get a good bit of reading done. :o)
The list -
A Man in a Million - Jessica Bird - very good; I loved Spike! A bit melodramatic but that's okay with me.
The Duke in Disguise - Gayle Callen - also good; she's one of my new authors I found in 2006.
Blame It on Cupid - Jennifer Greene - interesting take on the "OMG I inherited a child" plot.
Only a Duke Will Do - Sabrina Jeffries - it was nice to see this dangling storyline tied up.
Irresistible - Susan Mallery - good
Sizzling - Susan Mallery - better
The Unexpected Millionaire - Susan Mallery - good but I liked the first one better (and I picked up the third one today at Walmart).
On the Way to the Wedding - Julia Quinn - better than I expected after all the reviews I read.
Santa Baby anthology - Jenny's story was the best; the others were just okay.
Why so many Susan Mallery books? It just happened. I'd had Irresistible in the TBR for ages so I took it. Just before I left I ran across The Unexpected Millionaire (wow, would I like to really run across an unexpected millionaire!) and I liked the first book in that series, so I picked it up. And then when we were shopping after Christmas, Sizzling was on the shelves so I picked it up, too. I actually liked Sizzling better than Irresistible, by the way. Although, throughout the whole series she seems to be trying to deal with darker themes than she usually does (the evil grandmother, the abusive boyfriend, the sister with liver disease and the alcoholic mother)and I'm not sure it always works...they feel a bit contrived, somehow.
Anywho, it was a pretty good reading break overall. I did start to read Must Love Dragons but it didn't hold my attention so I'm putting it back in the TBR for a while.
