5.0 out of 5 stars Voyager continues, 22 April 2014
I always thought it a bad decision when Janeway was killed in an earlier book in this series. I'm not sure novelizations of TV series should do this - although of course it can happen within the series, as with Dax in DS9. I also thought that the resurrection of Janeway in the last book was very contrived - with one bound Jack was free etc. However the series has moved on, and I think it's good that Beyer is addressing the psychological issues surrounding Janeway's return. The characters are well realised and the story is interesting. Look forward to how it develops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy but delicious, 21 April 2012
I first came across this book at the library but it is so useful I bought one. If you're stuck in a rut with your slow cooker, and don't have much time, this is a really great book to have. I look forward to trying many more of the recipes

I've been following the Joanna Brady series from the beginning and really enjoying them. Jance has a wonderful sense of place so you know where the characters are going and what it's like in their communities. The Beaumont series is quite different - written in the first person for one thing - and Jance gets round the problem in her joint Beaumont/Brady novels by shifting the perspective periodically. I was dismayed in the first of the crossover titles when the two characters shared a post-battle moment of attraction. It didn't gel for me and would have spoiled the very good relationships they have been given in their solo books. I'm glad the auhtor decided not to take it any further… Read more
