Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit totally surpassed my already high expectations for it. I was 100% intrigued by a Christian character who is the daughter of a preacher being out and proud, then forced back into the closet. I wasn’t expecting to have so many emotions though! Jo’s father has just remarried, and now they’re moving to his new wife’s hometown. Her parents and the town in general aren’t very accepting, so Jo’s father asks her to lie low for the year and in return she can have her own radio show. Jo agrees, but things get complicated when she starts falling for Mary Carlson.

History is All You Left Me sounded like it was going to be heartbreaking, thought provoking, and hopeful. And it was for the most part, but I did find myself bored with Griffin’s story in the middle. His ex-boyfriend just died and Griffin is fully submerged in his grief. Then he sees Theo’s current boyfriend at the funeral. He should hate Jackson, but Griffin knows that he’s the only person who really understands what he’s going through. The two come together to share their grief and history with Theo, but Griffin isn’t being totally honest.

Ozzie is determined to find him, even though no one believes that Tommy ever existed. On top of that, the universe is shrinking at an alarming rate. Will the world exist long enough for Ozzie to find him?

An Offer From a Gentleman was so cute! Well, it starts off quite sad because at the age of three, Sophie was delivered to her father after her mother’s death. If that wasn’t bad enough, her father basically ignores her because she’s a bastard. Seven years later, he gets married and Sophie’s new stepmother and stepsisters are awful. Sure Sophie is allowed to have lessons with the girls, but other than that they’re cruel to her. Then her father dies, Sophie becomes their maid, and I’m sure you can tell where this story is going.
Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet starts about two months later with Charley addicted to the Home Shopping Network. She’s surrounded by boxes of random crap in order to hide the area where she was held by Earl. It’s an odd mix of sad and silly. Her father also kicked out of her office, but that doesn’t stop her from taking on a new client. This time it’s a woman who thinks someone is out to kill her after leaving a dead rabbit in her bed. Apparently, this has been happening for years, but no one has believed her until Charley.
Third Grave Dead Ahead starts thirteen days after Second Grave on the Left. That’s also how long Charley has gone without sleep. Whenever she nods off she somehow summons Reyes and he is not happy at all. They still have mind blowing sex, but there’s anger there as well. Of course, Charley also has to take on another case. This time a doctor’s wife has gone missing and Charley knows that he did it, because he’s reeking of guilt. And on top of that, her father wants her to quit her job! What’s a reaper to do?
