Three Reviews Sent to Booklist Today

Sent the following reviews to my Booklist editor:

The Spy Who Left Me by Gina Robinson:  Chick lit meets James Bond.  Not really my cup of tea, but interesting enough.  This is definitely one of those books where a reviewer must pretend to be another reader in order to do the book justice in the review.

Hot Zone by Catherine Mann:  A good beach read about para-rescue-men in the Bahamas.  The story won't do anything for tourism there, but Hugh Franco and his captain were interesting characters.  Kick-ass Amelia, however, exceeded the price of admission.  And fortunately even though a toddler was one of the characters, he wasn't cloyingly cute, but kept mostly in the background.

Wild Thing by Robin Kaye:  This was an odd one since the hero, who was awfully metro-male for being a rugged outdoorsman and wilderness guide, immediately fell in love with a Goth New Yorker, which took a while to reconcile.  But after Toni got her moxie back and stopped being afraid of abandonment in the wilderness--something that wouldn't happen since her company had paid so much for Hunter's services--the book picked up quite a bit.
