Detectives Don't Wear Seat Belts by Cici McNair (41)

Growing up in Mississippi, Cici McNair was always more the tomboy her mother supported than the Southern belle her father demanded. She escaped her suffocating upbringing the first chance she had to travel the world. Whether working at the Vatican in Rome or consorting with a gunrunner in Haiti, she lived a life of international adventure. When Cici finds herself in New York, divorced, broke, and fashionably starving to death in a Madison Avenue apartment, she impulsively decides to become a private detective.

But, as Cici soon learns, the world of P.I.s is tight-knit and made up almost exclusively of former law enforcement officers. By nature, they are a highly suspicious group and are especially wary of a newcomer with an untraceable past. Diligently working her way through the Yellow Pages, doggedly pursuing the slightest lead, Cici is finally hired by a private investigator willing to take a chance. The next day she's working side by side with a pair of seasoned detectives and a skip tracer who is scary to meet but like silk on the phone. She quickly realizes she'll need all her energy and wits to succeed in this new world.

Being a private investigator is as exciting and liberating as Cici ever dreamed, from creating a false identity on the spot on her first case in the field to surviving adrenaline-rushing car chases. Working with law enforcement, she goes undercover, dealing with the ruthless Born to Kill gang in Chinatown and the Middle Eastern counterfeiters west of Broadway. A detailed account of the hidden world and real-life cases of a P.I., this action-packed memoir is as entertaining as any detective novel you've ever read.



  • Hardcover: 368 pages
  • Publisher: Center Street; 1 edition (September 23, 2009)
  • ISBN: 9781599951874



About the Author

Cici McNair, P.I., was born and raised in Mississippi. A graduate of Briarcliff College in New York, she worked as a researcher for CBC-TV's award winning documentary on organized crime called "Connections" in Toronto. She was also a news writer, on-air newscaster, and producer of documentaries for Vatican radio in Rome. She has set up households in CanadaEnglandItalyPortugalSwitzerland, and Cyprus and has traveled all over the world.
Ms. McNair now lives in Philadelphia and heads her own private investigation firm, Green Star Investigations, which handles cases ranging from counterfeit pharmaceuticals to missing persons, stolen art recovery, and murder. She also works as a court-appointed Homicide Investigator handling both capital and non-capital cases.

REVIEW:
What a life!
This woman, Cici, leads such a colorful existence that I was in awe for most of the read. She has pretty much done it all. No joke. From living in Italy, the Vatican actually, to being sleuth in the States, with so much more in between. Each chapter is almost like a vignette of something that occurred in her life at the time she was talking about. I liked that.
With that said, it was hard to love. Some of the things she went through, though exciting, were told in a bit of a boring manner. There were even a couple times I said to myself, 'can we just get to the point already'. 
I do love reading someones' personal life story though. I think every one has a story to tell, it's just how you tell it.

3/5

Day Zero: Seven O'clock

I woke with a massive headache. And when I say massive, I mean my first thought when I opened my eyes was, 'Oh, fuck this day.' Yet, I did open my eyes as my phone alarm insisted on beeping repeatedly. Grabbing my phone off my nightstand, I slid my fingers across the screen and laid back into my pillows.

Soldier by Julie Kagawa (40)

When forced to choose between safety with the dragon organization Talon and being hunted forever as an outcast, Ember Hill chose to stand with Riley and his band of rogue dragons rather than become an assassin for Talon. She's lost any contact with her twin brother, Dante, a Talon devotee, as well as Garret, the former-enemy soldier who challenged her beliefs about her human side.

As Ember and Riley hide and regroup to fight another day, Garret journeys alone to the United Kingdom, birthplace of the ancient and secret Order of St. George, to spy on his former brothers and uncover deadly and shocking secrets that will shake the foundations of dragons and dragon-slayers alike and place them all in imminent danger as Talon's new order rises.

REVIEW:
Bring on Legion!
Seriously, the end, not only shook me up but left me panting like a dog in heat for more! I have a love/hate relationship with endings like this. I loved how it went but hate that I have to wait.
I liked the action in this one best of the three books so far. The romance was kind of on the back burner as the dragons and humans fought. Like, really fight in an all out war. But where it leads is what's cool.
Nothing like I expected, and that's a good thing, and yet still predictable in parts that worked.
I love this series, and can't wait to continue. Sad I have to anyway.
You really should read this if you like dragons. You will be thoroughly entertained.

4.5/5

#Win Orchard: A Novel By Jack H. Bailey (US)

Jack H. Bailey, author of Orchard, descended from gold miners and grew up in and around the locales frequented by Harry Orchard. It was while living in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho that his fascination with Orchard began. Jack joined the navy at seventeen and served in WWII aboard the aircraft carrier USS Lexington until she was sunk in the Battle of the Coral Sea. He graduated from USC with a BA in English and spent sixteen years in aerospace during which time he wrote two critically praised novels, The Number Two Man and The Icarus Complex. Jack wrote prolifically until his death in 2010. Most notably, Jack was an annual participant in the prestigious Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting, sponsored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and was one of only a handful of writers to have advanced in the competition seven times. Follow his author page on Facebook, GoodReads or Facebook.


This much is true. It's 1899. Harry Orchard is a member of the fire-breathing Western Federation of Miners. While other members labor underground to harvest the riches of the earth, Orchard is paid to kill men who are a problem for the union. He's an interesting killer, well-liked by his peers and by the ladies. 
After years of cat-and-mouse pursuit by legendary Pinkerton, Charles Siringo, when he's arrested in 1906 for the murder of Idaho's former Governor, Frank Steunenberg, he's killed nineteen men in Idaho and Colorado. Even today, in the silver mining towns of northern Idaho, his name is spoken in whispers by those familiar with his deeds.


"This much is true: Jack H. Bailey is a damn good writer. In Orchard he mixes facts with fiction as he spins a rollicking yarn of bombers, union busters, and political assassination. A dynamic novel." - Larry Karaszewski

I sat at my desk and stared into my open spiral notebook. A neat, tied-up-with-a-ribbon ending. Chapin's daughter didn't realize it then, but she was lucky.

When I Was The Greatest by Jason Reynolds (39)

In Bed Stuy, New York, a small misunderstanding can escalate into having a price on your head—even if you’re totally clean. This gritty, triumphant debut that Publishers Weekly calls “a funny and rewarding read” captures the heart and the hardship of life for an urban teen.

A lot of the stuff that gives my neighborhood a bad name, I don’t really mess with. The guns and drugs and all that, not really my thing.

Nah, not his thing. Ali’s got enough going on, between school and boxing and helping out at home. His best friend Noodles, though. Now there’s a dude looking for trouble—and, somehow, it’s always Ali around to pick up the pieces. But, hey, a guy’s gotta look out for his boys, right? Besides, it’s all small potatoes; it’s not like anyone’s getting hurt.

And then there’s Needles. Needles is Noodles’s brother. He’s got a syndrome, and gets these ticks and blurts out the wildest, craziest things. It’s cool, though: everyone on their street knows he doesn’t mean anything by it.

Yeah, it’s cool…until Ali and Noodles and Needles find themselves somewhere they never expected to be…somewhere they never should've been—where the people aren’t so friendly, and even less forgiving.

He is on faculty at Lesley University, for the Writing For Young People MFA Program, and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York.





REVIEW:
A well-rounded read.
Great crafted characters. I felt like I knew these boys, Ali, Needles & Noodles. Like these boys were hanging on my block and I passed by them every day. 
I liked the plot too. One you could relate to, if you come from lower income lifestyles, which I come from humble upbringing and could totally relate.
I liked the ending though. And for those who read my reviews often, know that the ending can be hit or miss with me. This author closed it all up nicely.
So the book had a beginning, a middle and an end, that all summed up nicely.
I think many of you reading this review would like this book, so get on it!  :-)

Rated PG

AMAZON US   |   AMAZON CA  |   AMAZON UK




REVIEW:
Not bad.
Had lots of action and quite a few laughs, so it felt like the movie went by fast.
Kevin Hart is a bird though. He's what I call, 'annoyingly funny'. You definitely have a love/hate relationship with him, but Ice Cube is who I watch it for anyway. Love him!
This is a typical cop gets drug lord movie, so don't expect too much from it in the way of a plot. Still, it's good enough for chilling with the hubby.  
The hubby liked it, probably more than I did. He thought it was kinda funny, but he loved the action and things blowing up, y'know guys... lol...
So there ya have it. An alright movie.

3/5

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter (38)

Sisters. Strangers. Survivors.

More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that's cruelly ripped open when Claire's husband is killed.

The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it.

Karin Slaughter is a New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author. She is a native of Georgia.








REVIEW:
Should definitely be book of the year!
This intensely gripping novel is one thriller I won't soon forget. Seriously on the nights that I have to spend alone, this book will come creeping its way back into my thoughts. So vivid it could actually happen. That's a chilling thought.
Lydia is a bad-ass chick and I really connected with her, though Claire, her sister, is the protagonist. The story also flips to the fathers' perspective, and it is needed in the story for you to gain the real focus and feel of it all.
I plan on telling everyone about this book, starting with you all, of course. It is one of the best thrillers I have read ever, and I have read a lot. I flew through this almost 600 page story too, so you know it's wicked good.
Get a copy, and get it read today. You won't regret it.

5/5
