Book #9: “The Killing Edge” by Heather Graham


Welcome to week 9 of the “52 Books in 52 Weeks” series!  If you haven’t seen all the books take a moment and catch up!

Years ago I read “Ghost Walk” by Heather Graham and loved it so I thought I would give another one a try.

At the library I grabbed “The Killing Edge.”  The reason I like Graham’s books is because I enjoy having a little bit of Supernatural in my stories and she has just enough ghostly stuff to make me happy.

The one thing I don’t like about the books is that you can tell in about ten pages which guy and girl are going to hook up.  I have to confess I skip alot of the “hook up” scenes cause they are a bit racier than I am comfortable with.  If you enjoy a good bodice ripper I have a feeling there is some content for you too in here.

The plot of this book is pretty simple: Part-time model and psychologist Chloe Marin, a traumatized survivor of what was billed as the Teen Massacre at a Florida beach house 10 years earlier, has new reason to be afraid. Colleen Rodriguez, one of the models at Chloe’s Miami Beach agency, has gone missing while on a shoot in the Florida Keys. Investigating Colleen’s disappearance is PI Luke Cane, whose tortured past makes him a perfect match for Chloe, and the pair soon give in to their mutual attraction. Complementing the sensual love scenes are Chloe’s chilling visions of ghosts of the victims of her horrific brush with death as a high school senior. Just when Chloe thinks she can look happily to the future, eerie similarities surface between a crime in New Orleans and the massacre.

I will give Graham credit for one thing- I had NO IDEA who the bad guy was until they revealed it.  It was surprising.  I love the way she describes New Orleans and the other cities she uses for backdrop- she has such an appreciation for the area and it’s rich history.  It makes me want to go visit the area and take it all in!

Her writing is very easy to read and I find her characters very relateable.  I usually read her books in one or two sittings because you get sucked in.  None of them have kept me up until 2 a.m. but they definately keep me engaged.

If you want to read next week’s book it is “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.”  At the time I am writing this I am not finished with it yet but the first 2/3 have been SPECTACULAR.

December 2011 Coupon Classes

Thank you so much to all of you who have hosted in home and group coupon classes over the course of 2011.  I have lost count but I am sure I have taught over 150 during the last 11 months.

As a result many projects I would like to work on (including some new classes) have been put aside.  Because of this I am going to take the month of December off from teaching to focus on some other things.

If you are an organization and are interested in me coming to speak during the month please contact me and depending on the time constraints I will be happy to help.

Otherwise keep your eyes open for some more changes on the site and a schedule of available dates for January!

HOT LeapPad Deal: $109 For Bundle Including Shipping


UPDATE: It looks like the 15% off code is no longer working.  Hope you got it while it was such a good deal!

Several of my readers have mentioned the LeapPad as a gift they are planning on purchasing this holiday season.  If you are like me and had no idea what it was, think of it as an iPad for a child under the age of 6.  This is going to be a HOT item. 

One of my blogger friends found a VERY good deal on this item- that includes a $20 credit to the app store and the Tangled game.

Currently on LeapFrog.com you get FREE shipping on all LeapPad bundles (no code needed) plus you get an extra 15% off once the item has been added to your cart.

Once you are at check out use the code GOBBLE3LF to get another $10 off!  That will make your final total $108.99 for the Get Ready for Kindergarden LeapPad Bundle.  They have many other bundles you can check out as well (for example if your little man isn’t so much into Tangled)!

Just the LeapPad alone is $99 on Amazon and you would still have to pay for games and apps so this is a VERY good deal!
