Lets start with the Trouble Shooters. While I did enjoy reading more about Jules and Robin I was a little dissappointed to reach the middle of the book and realize this really wasn't a romantic suspense at all. It was very much a contemporary romance with a bit of drama thrown in at the end. Which is fine. If I'm in the mood for a contemporary romance. Which I wasn't. I'm sure if I'd done a little digging around I would have realized this prior to starting but when I see Brockmann and Troubleshooters on the cover of a book I tend to assume things. Otherwise I did quite enjoy the story. I wish Will and Dolphina's story was a little more fleshed out since I really like Will from the previous book he was in but it is a novella so I can see why it was a tad abbreivated.
Now on to Sookie. After I read the first book I mentioned that I had trouble warming up to Sookie. I found I liked her quite a bit more in this book and I found the action/mystery was able to hold my attention more in this book as well. My only problem this time is Bill. He just seems so blah - like there isn't a whole lot of personality in there. Eric on the other hand seems far more developed as a character and I find I enjoy the scenes with him far more than those with Bill but maybe that's intentional. I haven't read a whole lot about this series other than that lots of people seem to like it so perhaps Sookie is going to go in a different direction. I don't know but I don't really see whats so great about Bill.
