The House In The Pines
23 September 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I chose this book because I know Janis and have read several of her novels. There seems to be a little bit of Janis in her books and this one was no exception. This book is written so true to the Texas I've come to know and love for the last 30 years, it's easy to slip inside of the Woods and spend a few hours with willfull women, wild weather and wicked. . . oops almost said too much. I enjoyed the read.

Lacking as a Traditional Gothic
26 December 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I read a lot of Gothic romances (including contemporary Gothics) and I do not consider this book in that genre. It's more of a family mystery, although the mystery, unfortunately, is a bit weak and the perpetrator was easily spotted from the beginning.

The story IS a true old fashioned gothic. My biggest problem was that I felt like I read it before--I absolutely knew exactly what was going to happen, why and how. Normally this wouldn't bother me but the parts of a gothic that I love wasn't really included as much as I would like. This includes detailed descriptions of the house and the area that the heroine was staying. I also did not really like or connect to most of the characters. They were a bit flat, boring. This novel was just an okay read.
