The Fun House by Dean Koontz

Book Description:

Published: 1980

Once there was a girl who ran away and joined a traveling carnival. She married a man she grew to hate—and gave birth to a child she could never love. A child so monstrous that she killed it with her own hands…Twenty-five years later, Ellen Harper has a new life, a new husband, and two normal children—Joey loves monster movies, and Amy is about to graduate from high school. But their mother drowns her secret guilt in alcohol and prayer. The time has come for Amy and Joey to pay for her sins…

Because Amy is pregnant.

And the carnival is coming back to town.

Review –

I’ve only been to a carnival once or twice but after reading this book I’ll never go again.

Really suspenseful and creepy with well-defined characters and “beasties”and plenty of blood and guts.  Horror at it’s best, written by one of the best.

If you like spooky, this is for you.

Good Girl Gone Bad (Hot Cops#1) by Karin Tabke

Book Description

September 12, 2006
IN HER SIZZLING DEBUT,KARINTABKE SETS THE SCENE WITH HARD-HITTING COPS, A SCANDALOUS CRIME, AND UNINHIBITED PASSION THAT CAN’T BE DENIED….Straight-laced, by-the-book police officer Philamina Zorn has always lived by the letter of the law — that is, until she is assigned to work with Lieutenant Ty Jamerson, a tough-as-nails, arrogantly handsome cop who knows exactly how to press her buttons. Staking out Klub Kashmir, the Bay Area’s hottest gentleman’s club, Phil and Ty go undercover to bait the kidnapper of three young women — including two strippers from the club — while trying to keep their clashing personalities at bay. Baring more than just her inhibitions, Phil dons a barely there ensemble, straps on stilettos, and reveals her feisty side as Kat, a seductively sexy cocktail waitress who lets her luscious curves do the talking. Not only is she determined to expose a criminal but she has vowed to show her hot-headed lieutenant, a.k.a. floor manager of Klub Kashmir, that she’s no shrinking violet.

As Phil and Ty become more deeply entrenched in the sordid underground world of exotic dancing, where money means everything and passions run wild, flaring tension becomes uncontrollable lust. It’s all they can do not to surrender to desire — a hunger that intensifies with each playful encounter. Meanwhile, a cold-blooded criminal is hiding in the shadows — and a devastating secret that, if revealed, could shake Phil to her core.

Review –
Great story line and clashing characters with a fiery chemistry. There is so much hot sex that my Kindle was sizzling.
Adult.

The Golden Egg Book by Margaret Wise Brown

Book  Description:

Published: 2004

Once there was a little bunny. He was all alone. One day he found an egg. He could hear something moving inside the egg. What was it?

So begins the Golden Easter classic about a bunny—and a little duck that is about to hatch!

Review –

I wanted an Easter Book to send to my niece and her cousin (ages almost 2 and 15 months) and although this isn’t an Easter Book per se  it has a bunny and a duckling which was good enough for me.

The bunny finds an egg and tries to find out what’s inside by throwing small pebbles at it and rolling it down a hill among other things. All of this exertion wears him out and he falls asleep and while he’s resting the egg breaks open and there is a yellow downed duckling .

He sees the sleeping bunny and uses the same methods as the bunny to wake him up but to no avail. When the bunny does wake up and see the little duckling they are both happy because now they are not alone.

Cute book and nice illustrations
