ABOUT:  The Nursery Rhyme Series #3 : One by one the letters arrive at the FBI office in Savannah, Georgia. Inside, each bears a name—a victim of a twisted crime—and the singsong phrase Ashes, ashes, they all fall dead. Special Agent Tessa James becomes obsessed with finding the killer whose victims are crying out to her for justice.

When sexy, brilliant consultant Matt Buchanan is paired with Tessa to discover who's sending the "Ashes" letters, he discovers a serial arsonist who is leaving nothing but murder in his wake. Inexplicably, the clues point to Tessa herself, forcing her to realize that if she can't remember the forgotten years of her past, the name on the next letter will be hers.

MY REVIEW: Although I missed the 2nd book in series and felt like I was missing a little something, I still really enjoyed this book.

Dangerous Curves Ahead by Sugar Jamison

I recommend this fun snarky sassy novel from Ms. Jamison. What I liked most about this book was that Ellis is a perfect imperfect heroine! I am so sick of reading romance novels about women with perfect bodies. I loved the characters and humor. Although I had a few small issues, I think it might be because Ms. Jamison is a newer author. That said I plan on following her career and can't wait to see what she has in store in for us!
