Mini Reviews: Wait for You, Up From the Grave, Home for the Holidays

I really enjoyed this contemporary NA story!  It had an interesting plot, well-developed characters, and a few surprises along the way.  My only complaint was that it was pretty heavy on the bedroom scenes.  It's the first in the series, and it looks like the next book will feature a minor character from book one.  This was my first time reading J. Lynn/Jennifer Armentrout and I was impressed.  I'm definitely going to be reading the next book in this series; in fact, I already pre-ordered it!  Rating: 4 stars.

Up From the Grave (Night Huntress #7) by Jeaniene Frost.
As usual, Frost delivers a winner with this book.  The pace was perfect, the plot was interesting, and the characters were varied.  I didn't realize until I'd finished the book that this is the last Cat and Bones book.  *sob*  But, Frost ends the series on a perfect note, with hope and happiness, and I love her for that.  I also loved that while this is the seventh book in the Night Huntress series, the plot was still fresh and there wasn't any of the dreaded "filler" feeling to it.  On a side note, there were fewer bedroom scenes in this novel, compared to the others in the series.  This was not a problem for me, but others may find it problematic, especially given that this is the last Night Huntress book.  Rating: 5 stars

Home For the Holidays (Night Huntress #6.5) by Jeaniene Frost.
I ended up reading this novella (which is a great length, about half the length of a full-size novel) after reading Up From The Grave.  I really wished I'd read Home for the Holidays first, because things that happened in Up From the Grave would have made much more sense.  I found out about this novella only after reading on Jeaniene Frost's website to confirm that Up From the Grave was the last Night Huntress novel.  Anyway, I really enjoyed this novella. It was everything I've come to expect from Jeaniene Frost: a riveting plot, great pacing, solid writing, and an ending with great closure.  I was so pleased to find it and recommend it to fans of the series.  It's a must-read for Night Huntress fans!  Rating: 5 stars
