Little White Lies, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

2018-12-17-little-white-lies-by-jennifer-lynn-barnes

Jennifer Lynn Barnes's books must have great elevator pitches: cheerleader spies! Magic-granting tattoos! Teenage FBI agents! Unfortunately, her latest effort, Little White Lies, doesn't fully lean in to the wildness of its Gilmore Girls-meets-Peyton Place premise. Barnes is a solid writer, but her books are never as cheesy as they sound, and this was a story that could have used significantly more cheese...

Bad Blood, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

2016-11-07-bad-blood-by-jennifer-lynn-barnes

Bad Blood is the fourth and final book in Jennifer Lynn Barnes's Naturals series. Once again, Barnes has delivered a briskly-paced thriller seemingly tailor-made for a CW adaptation. (Seriously, the fact that this series isn't already on my TV is bewildering to me.)

Weekly Book Giveaway: Bad Blood, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

2016-11-07-weekly-book-giveaway-bad-blood-by-jennifer-lynn-barnes

I am in no mood for anything other than 100% undiluted entertainment, so this week's Book Giveaway is the latest book in Jennifer Lynn Barnes's Naturals series, Bad Blood. I'm not sure that even Ms. Barnes's book will be entertaining enough to distract me from my overwhelming election anxiety, but I figure it's got a better shot than most...

Killer Instinct, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

2014-11-05-killer-instinct-by-jennifer-lynn-barnes

Before I launch into the body of my review, I'd like to commend my local chain bookstore for not displaying Jennifer Lynn Barnes's Killer Instinct in the children's section. That's where they originally stocked the first book in the series—last year's The Naturals—and it was a staggeringly inappropriate choice...

The Naturals, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

2014-01-24-the-naturals-by-jennifer-lynn-barnes

We have been enjoying Jennifer Lynn Barnes's books for years—all the way back to 2008's The Squad: Perfect Cover. Her early stories were fun, if shaky, but it's been a pleasure to follow the steady improvement of her work. So many authors have one good (or good-ish) idea and go downhill from there; Barnes is among the few who have sharpened their style with every book...
