Extreme Whiplash, Girl


WWE Extreme Rules starring [big dudes].  Big dudes jump around, do athletic stuff, and gets smooshed.

Gone Girl starring Ben Affleck, I still have not read the book. I read Flynn's other two books and really enjoyed the Kansas one, Dark Places. That's a movie now, too, except it was filmed in Louisiana.

Whiplash starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. Drummer has a mean teacher. Drummer?

Romance from Lorelei James


Saddled and Spurred by Lorelei James. Lorelei James is the same as Lori Armstrong but with sex and romance.  James's novels always check out well. I chatted with Armstrong at the Bouchercon conference in St. Louis. I'm not sure if she is still writing mysteries and thrillers, she had publisher trouble a couple years ago.

EDIT: Yeah, Armstrong still writes her Judy Collins mystery series and published a novella last year. Her Mercy Gunderson mysteries did well here. Trio link.
