#amreading Devour, L.A. Larkin

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Last night I was all set for a watch of Le Tour de France. Love the stages in the mountains, for the scenery as much as the tactical team riding. But then I picked up DEVOUR, devoured the first 50 pages and lost track of the tour shenanigans completely. Fell asleep with the book on my nose.

From the Blurb:

Their greatest fear was contaminating an ancient Antarctic lake, buried beneath the ice for millions of years. They little knew about the catastrophe they were about to unleash.

Welcome to the high octane world of Olivia Wolfe.

We're supposed to be taking a couple of weeks holiday's (well busman's holiday as we're desperately desperately desperately trying to get some work done on the farm), so of course I'm stuck inside in front of a computer... working.

At least I did manage a day off, so I did get some reading done - starting out with the latest book by L.A. Larkin.
