03/31/2006 Entry: "MICAH by Hamilton - Anita keeps it simple (Linda)"


This LKH book is much thinner and double spaced, something I might have complained about in the past but with my poor eyesight, appreciate more now.

Also a much less complicated plot. Due to an emergency, Anita takes a job to animate a deceased witness for the FBI. Unfortunately it entails flying, which Anita does not enjoy. Micah comes along to help her handle any ardeur emergencies.

I enjoyed it. I have to admit one of the reasons I enjoyed it so much was Anita was with ONE man for a change!! I still miss that in her other books. Gets pretty crowded in her bed. I enjoyed finding out more about Micah and I do enjoy seeing her using her animation skills as a job again. There is just enough danger involved to keep things interesting.

Oh and there is a peek into her next book, DANSE MACABRE, that will make me HAVE to read it. Anita might be pregnant!! --Linda


Oh, man I hope not. That would be wrong on so many levels --Laurie

OK, this foray didn't bother me as much as the previous few entries, despite the Micah focus. Have I just been worn down to the point I'll accept mediocrity, or is this installment actually better?

P.S. I LOVE this site!

maybe shes not pregnant.. could be that she cant have babies now as some sort of weird side effect.. i dunno.. but i think if she is then i may have to not like her as much.
