Friday Fives - Five Books by Jayne Ann Krentz I Want to Read

I'm taking a bit of a break from my usual Friday Linkups to try something a little different.  Michelle over at Because Reading is Better Than Real Life   used to do a Five on Fridays that I always enjoyed and I've seen a few other variations on the theme.  As well I'm in a list making kind of mood so I thought I'd give start making random five lists.  Sometimes they'll be bookish other weeks not so much.  Lately I've been thinking of authors that I always enjoy but whose books I've only read a few books by.  Jayne Ann Krentz is one of those authors.  Are they best quality?  Nope but they're always dependable and entertaining and she's written shelves and shelves of books and that's just sticking with the Krentz name - we aren't even going to bring her other pseudonyms into it!  Going through her rather extensive backlog here are five books that I want to read soon. 

1.  Light in Shadows - Interior design + clients with dark secrets + a PI = a read I will most certainly enjoy!

2.  Lost and Found - More interior design but this time with antiques!

3.  Copper Beach - This sounds a bit heavy on the paranormal with psychics and crystals and danger.  It does have a rather terrible cover though so I might get this in Kindle form!

4.   In Too Deep - So apparently the early 2010s were a bad time for Krentz's covers and were pretty heavy on the paranormal.  I'm not mad about the 2nd one!  And this one has a mention of a family tree and there's very few objects I love more then that!

5.  Smoke in Mirrors - I feel like I've gotten this one from the library about ten times but have never read it.  There's a con artist and a mysterious safety deposit box and I'm thinking mysterious safety deposit boxes should factor more in mysteries.

Have you read any Jayne Ann Krentz books?  What were your favorites?


  1. I love the sound of those paranormal themes, Katherine:)). Thank you for sharing.

  2. Jayne Ann Krentz is kind of a comfort read for me. I used to read a lot more of her books when I was reading more romance, but I still have a soft spot for her. I think I need to read some more of her older books again! Good idea and good list, Katherine.
