Dark, Poorly Written, Interesting
Last Man in Tower

Thought provoking story - every person has good and bad within them. If given the proper motivation, how low will a person stoop? None of the characters are likable.

Delicious

I thought this was a sweet book, but somewhat bland and predictable. It was a fun enough read if you are a foodie.

The Signature of All Things

Very good! Well developed main character.

Soldier Girls

I find Ms. Thorpe's writing style laborious. Too many irrelevant details that do not contribute substantially to her development of the main characters or the story. I was disappointed in the cross section of military women that she selected - not sure it was representative of the masses (it could be, but not necessarily)
