Challenge Wrap-Up

Finished Challenge – Eponymous Challenge

Finished my third challenge! I just finished the Eponymous Challenge by Coversgirl.

The rules were to read 4 books whose titles are either the name of a character or a description of a character.

For this challenge I read:

  1. Christopher Andersen, Diana’s Boys: William & Harry & the Mother they Loved
  2. Carla Neggers, The Widow
  3. Nancy Pickard, The Virgin of Small Plains
  4. Dean Koontz, Odd Thomas

I only kept two of my original picks. I have a really bad habit of changing my lists! I need to work on that in the future. Overall I enjoyed this challenge a lot. For the most part I enjoyed all of these books.

Favorite: The Virgin of Small Plains (Pickard)
Least Favorite: Odd Thomas (Koontz)

Challenge: Eponymous Challenge

First Line: Abigail Browning squirted charcoal lighter fluid on the mound of papers she’d torn up and piled into her backyard grill.

Abigail Browning experienced things on her honeymoon that no women should ever have to go through – her 4 day old marriage ended tragically when her husband, Chris, was shot and killed while on their honeymoon! Seven years later, now a homicide detective, she simply cannot get over the senseless murder of her husband. She can’t let it go. On the seventh anniversary of her marriage, she receives an anonymous call that sends her back to the scene of the murder. But her presence back on Mount Desert Island will cause things to spin out of control. As she pairs up with Owen Garrison, the search-and-rescue man who was too late to save him, they will have to push their feelings aside in order to stop a killer.
This book was really good! There was a little bit of romance, but it wasn’t overpowering, which is how I like my books to be for the most part. The killer was a complete shock for me! It kept me guessing up to the very end. New author for me, and I really enjoyed it. Highly recommended!!
