Blood Vines by Erica Spindler

In this bare-knuckled adrenaline ride from New York Times bestselling author Erica Spindler, Alex Clarkson's worst nightmares are about to come true…

A sinister, hooded figure…

When Alexandra Clarkson starts having terrifying visions filled with blood and ceremonial images, she tries to find a rational explanation – maybe her mind is playing tricks on her, resurrecting creepy tableaux from her research on religious ceremonies and sects. But when Alex's mother, Patsy, commits suicide without leaving behind any information, Alex is left wondering: could she be haunted by something from the childhood she doesn't remember?

Naked, writhing bodies…

Detective Daniel Reed was the last person to speak to Patsy. What he reveals to Alex is shocking. Twenty-five years earlier, Patsy was married to Harlan Sommer, one of Sonoma County's most prominent vintners, when their infant son disappeared without a trace. The loss destroyed the Sommers' marriage, causing Patsy to leave and take Alex with her.

A dead child…

Called on to investigate the identity of a baby's remains unearthed in a Sonoma vineyard, Reed had picked up a trail that led him to Patsy in San Francisco. Now Reed and Alex both wonder if the cold bones could be her baby brother Dylan, and Alex decides to accompany Reed back to Sonoma for the investigation. No sooner does she arrive, however, than she is drawn deep into the search for a twisted killer…

I found the main characters shallow, and I felt no real chemistry between Reed and Alexandra. I thought Alex was weak and whiny; I was more impressed with Rachels character. As one reader pointed out Reed seemed to think very little of Alex through most of the story. The plot had a lot of tantalizing threads the were never fully developed and the end of the novel left me with more questions than answers. I felt very frustrated when i was done reading it...maybe she is going to write a sequel that will wrap things up?

I just recently purchased this book from my local CVS, needing a quick read when I didn't have my Nookcolor. True to word of another writer, I found the characters very simple, very 2D. Very little was done to give the reader investment into the faces and names, and while the plot held marvelous potential, it simply fell short.

I was so looking forward to this book and I'm sorry to say I was disappointed. Many times I was tempted to skip forward to just end it but I trudged on through. While the book did pick up somewhat overall it fell flat. I wish I would have checked it out from the library and saved my money. Sorry Erica, better luck with your next one.

"Queens often become lazy after they have kits. I think we should change that, too. Chatting is for chatrooms." She paused. "To minimize chatting, a rule could be made that if someone wants to say something outside of Bloodclan/RP, it belongs in parentheses."

Brief summary: everyone's lazy and we need to fix it. We need tobweed out the weak by finding the strong. Promote worthy to assassins, demote unworthy to warriors. Assassins must carry out requests to the end. Daily or semi-daily sparring each with different goals. All but kits et queens participate. Set days for raids, apprentises must update the clan list daily, that i will start, including the locations, activity, ect. Training must occur. Symbols symbolising ranks.<p> Brieg summary of second post: need one to watch over app to make sure they do their job. Maybe Deep. We'll see. Also need one to make sure patrols are going out. ~Informing Striking &#22225

This was a wonderful twist of suspense and romance. Once you start this book you won't be able to put it down until you know who did what.
