A quick read - like all the Harlequin Presents stories.

Can Morwenna bring the truth to light?
Whitney Marshall thought that taking over her cousin's dog walking business was a great way to get over the painful end of her marriage. Then she learns that Miranda lied about her own upcoming marriage and the owner of the house she is living in is dead and his heir has moved in to prove his uncle was murdered. The most important question is who wants her dead too and why.
This is a true "heavy reading" book not only because of the subject matter but also because at over 700 pages its heavy. The premise is good and reminded me of a cross between Stephen King's "The Stand" and any government experiment gone wrong senario book. I was only able to get to page 447 before I had to stop. The story began to bog down and as I skimmed the remainder was disappointed to realize it is a continuation book and I will have to read the next book "The Twelve" to have it concluded. I like serials that can be read as a stand alone.
There is a new and deadly infection showing up in emergency rooms in the Pacific Northwest. A "superbug" that is resistant to any known treatment. Can Dr. Catalina Lopez of the CDC and infectious disease specialist Dr. Graham Kilburn find a way to stop this growing epidemic or will the "someone" succeed.
This is the book that the movie is based on. It is a good scary read and if the movie is anything like the book at all I'm not going to see it! Like Stephen King's "Misery" it is a cannot put it down until it's finished. Just make sure you start reading it early in the morning and -- unless you have a houseful of people -- don't read it alone at night!
A romantic suspense set onboard a US nuclear submarine that has been hijacked from its repair slip and is on its way to attack New York City.
I enjoyed the interaction of both sets of heros and heroines - one set onboard the sub as they try to stop the terroists and the set on land who are trying to figure out who the terroists are.
This is a fast paced read and even though it's 284 pages long it can be read in one day.
