Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her. The cherry on top is when Caroline finds out her father is not doing well and has to go home to New Jersey to help out. She finds one thing she didn't expect . . . true love. I received an Advanced Readers Copy of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline from NetGalley for free in exchange for my honest review.  The synopsis of this book was intriguing, and I absolutely love baseball, so I couldn't wait to dig in to this story. Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book. The slowness of the plot made it difficult to stay interested in the characters and their fate.  At one point, I didn't really care if I finished the story or not. With that being said, I'm glad I stuck with the book because the last 15% of Welcome Home, Caroline Kline started to

Book Review: Hardcore Twenty-Four (Stephanie Plum, #24) by Janet Evanovich

Hardcore Twenty-Four (Stephanie Plum, #24) by Janet Evanovich takes place in Trenton, New Jersey. Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum has her hands full with baby-sitting a boa constrictor, bodies appear without their heads, and zombies start appearing all over town. To top things off, Diesel appears in Stephanie's apartment and is being quite secretive for him.

Was I surprised that zombies made an appearance in this installment of the Stephanie Plum series? With growing popularity of shows like The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead, it didn't surprise me at all. Who can blame Evanovich for taking advantage of the popularity of zombie shows and adding an element to one of her books? I certainly don't blame her. I enjoyed that this put a slightly different spin on the series.

However, I didn't care for the love triangle in Hardcore Twenty-Four. I'm not a huge fan of Diesel and wasn't too excited about him making an appearance in this installment. Thankfully, he wasn't featured too heavily and played more of a supporting role than he has in the other book appearances.

This storyline did follow the same type of formula the rest of her books do with everything being tied up neatly at the end. That's one of the reasons I enjoy the series. Although I did enjoy Hardcore Twenty-Four, there were parts that I felt like it dragged a bit, which is the reason I gave it four out of five stars. If you enjoyed Hardcore Twenty-Four (Stephanie Plum, #24) by Janet Evanovich, I recommend In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad, #1) by Tana French.
