Oct 10: “Trancehack” by Sonya Clark, a paranormal romantic suspense. Blurb on Goodreads: It’s 2065. Those born with magic abilities live in government-run zones, without rights or freedoms. Fear of magic created this segregated world and fear keeps it intact. A high-profile murder brings Detective Nathan Perez to Magic Born Zone 13. He’s had little experience with the Magic Born and isn’t sure what to expect during his first encounter with a witch, but he never thought he’d be so drawn to her. Trancehacker Calla Vesper uses magic to break into computers and aid the Magic Born underground. She has no interest in helping a cop, even if he is smoking-hot, but money’s tight and Nate offers a tidy amount for help navigating the Zone. Calla’s determined to keep it all business, but sparks start flying before the investigation even gets started. When Calla’s trancehacking and Nathan’s investigation uncover a conspiracy, Calla becomes a target. Nate can protect her by keeping her role a secret—but then who will protect Nate? Wow! I won this book and, I’ll be frank, hated the cover. So it sat unread. My mistake. See, I really SHOULDN’T judge a book by its cover, because the book was great. I had a hard time putting it down. It read more like a romantic suspense/thriller than a paranormal romance, which is fine with me. I’d hate to think we’d be so cruel in the future by segregating people again, but it made for an entertaining read. I just wish my e-book wasn’t all funky. The lines were too close together and every time I shut my device down, it never saved my spot. Even with these annoyances, I kept reading. Just had to know what happened next!
Exercise update: I’ve consistently been going to the gym four days a week for five weeks now. I’m so proud of myself for sticking with it. Unfortunately, if I’m making any progress I’m not seeing it. But I do have hope. The ice cream is out of the house now. Yeah, it went through my body first (and maybe stuck around on my thighs and butt), but it’s out of my freezer and will not return. That’s the important part! J
