Beauty (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #20.5)Beauty by Laurell K. Hamilton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

An outtake from the bestselling novel, Kiss the Dead by Laurell K. Hamilton.

It's easy for Anita Blake to doubt her beauty when there are sexy vampires like Jean Claude around. However, with the help of a large hot tub two incredibley sexy men (well vampires)- Jean Claude and Asher- will make her feel like the most desirably woman alive...

Although short, only 30 pages, this was a hot little preview into the newest Anita Blake novel that left me anxiously awaiting the release of Kiss the Dead.

The Lincoln Conspiracy: A NovelThe Lincoln Conspiracy: A Novel by Timothy L. O'Brien
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received this book free through Goodreads First Reads.

In the Spring of 1865, as America mourns the death of President Abraham Lincoln, a shocking discovery is made. Police detective Temple McFadden stumbles upon two diaries that together reveal the true story behind the Lincoln assassination.

With many people after the diaries, Temple's quest to bring the conspirators to justice endangers his life as well of the lives of his wife and friends. Temple's journey to the truth takes him through the Civil War-era capital district, into bawdy houses and back alleys where he struggles to remain one step ahead of the enemies that await him at every turn.

With an interesting and diverse cast of characters this story follows many twists toward a climax that may leave readers gasping.

The author did a fantastic job making his characters believable.

The story was well developed and I enjoyed reading it, although at times it did seem to drag a bit. Overall, this was a great story that I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good conspiracy theory.
