UP TO NO GOOD
Weber presents more of his usual hard-hitting drama, the kind where readers can't keep their noses out of the book until it's done. His writing always brings heat -- along with multilayered characters, unexpected twists and a gripping ending. The characters are better than those on any soap opera.
Meanwhile, James' 25-year-old daughter Jamie is a pampered little princess who brings the drama. As Jamie learns a dangerous secret about her boyfriend Louis, ladies' man James falls under the spell of a woman with questionable motives. (DAFINA, Feb., 288 pp., $24.00)
