GnL Recommend

It's Saturday again, so here are Gus and Laci with this weeks recommendations! GnL Recommend is a weekly feature here on The Book Junkie's Bookshelf where my dogs Gus and Laci recommend books to you that they happen to enjoy.

Gus Recommends:


Four murders.
Three accidents.
Two suicides.
One left…


Michael Palmer’s latest novel pits a flawed doctor against a ruthless psychopath, who has made murder his art form. Dr. Nick Garrity, a vet suffering from PTSD—post traumatic stress disorder—spends his days and nights dispensing medical treatment from a mobile clinic to the homeless and disenfranchised in D.C. and Baltimore. In addition, he is constantly on the lookout for his war buddy Umberto Vasquez, who was plucked from the streets by the military four years ago for a secret mission and has not been seen since.

Psych nurse Gillian Coates wants to find her sister’s killer. She does not believe that Belle Coates, an ICU nurse, took her own life, even though every bit of evidence indicates that she did—every bit save one. Belle has left Gillian a subtle clue that connects her with Nick Garrity.

Together, Nick and Gillian determine that one-by-one, each of those in the operating room for a fatally botched case is dying. Their discoveries pit them against genius Franz Koller--the highly-paid master of the “non-kill”—the art of murder that does not look like murder. As Doctor and nurse move closer to finding the terrifying secret behind these killings, Koller has been given a new directive: his mission will not be complete until Gillian Coates and Garrity, the last surgeon, are dead.

Gus says: Jamie reviewed this book not all that long ago...You can find the review here. I liked this book cause the author incorporated a dog into the story...even though his part was small...he was there.

Laci Recommends:


In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers like no other-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Yet none of them relishes killing more than Wrath, the leader of The Black Dagger Brotherhood.

The only purebred vampire left on earth, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But, when one of his most trusted fighters is killed-leaving his half-breed daughter unaware of his existence or her fate-Wrath must usher her into the world of the undead-a world of sensuality beyond her wildest dreams.

Laci says: Jamie reviewed this one too!...You can find that review here. I'm partical to vampires and the paranormal so I thought I'd recommend something this week that I'm into.

Until next week...This is


signing off.

I am definitely going to have to pick up The Last Surgeon! Sounds like a book that is right up my alley!
I so LOVE your design!!!! It is awesome! The pawprints rock! Of course I am partial to dogs too as my Obie (my 70 lb standard poodle) is my heart!)

I loved Dark Lover! It is one of my favorites. I'm kinda disappointed in the direction the BDB series has taken in the last couple of books. But I'm going to give it a chance to redeem itself with Lover Mine.
