I try not to read two books by the same author in succession unless it’s a series, because there’s such a thing called ‘author fatigue’ for me. This happens when the books I read begin to sound just like the last one I’ve read of the author that I tend to become disinterested in reading any more books by the author.
It came as a surprise when I decided to delve right into ‘I Thee Wed’ right after ‘Wait Until Midnight’ by Amanda Quick. Both heroines are unconventional go getters who rely more on their wit than feminine wiles to survive and support their families. I have a soft spot for strong heroines, so Quick had no trouble reeling me in with these two books.
That said, both books deal with the some otherworldly fields of science — one with psychic research and the other with a mysterious cult that, amongst others, brewed a recipe for enhancing the female intuition. The element of suspense, the conflicts that comes with uniting lovers from different worlds were Quick trademarks that helped sustain the plot development, and made these quite enjoyable light-hearted reading.
After careful consideration though, I think I’ll keep ‘Wait Until Midnight’ but release ‘I Thee Wed’. IMHO, ‘Wait’ is the better book.
