Second Bookses

It's like second breakfast. Only with books.
Pregnesia - Carla Cassidy Incredibly horrifying title to the contrary, Pregnesia is pretty much your usual fair for a Harlequin Intrigue novel: fairly easy-to-figure out mystery, pretty much instalove on the part of the hero and heroine, and a happily-ever-after ending. Sorry if I spoiled it for you.Jane is pregnant and has no memory of who she is. She's found by our erstwhile hero when he's repossessing a car as a favor for someone. He's an ex-Navy SEAL who's now in the "getting things back" business, but it's usually high-ticket items and important people.Because of reasons, he doesn't want to take her to the hospital or the police, so he takes her to his sister. Who's a nurse studying to be a doctor. So she patches up the cut on the woman's head and they end up getting attached to her. Lucas, our ex-SEAL, gets his partners involved in trying to solve the mystery of who this Jane Doe is and why some guys try to hie off with her in a white van with a symbol of a church at the local Walmart. Then, naturally, she turns up on the news TEN DAYS LATER with people looking to retrieve her. You can probably figure out the rest from here.Like pretty much all category romances, the book skates over things like research and plugging plot holes, and drops clues like anvils. As a friend stated, "They pretty much write themselves." It's a quick read, possibly a fun read if that's your thing, but it's not earth shattering. And the title alone is probably still selling this book four years out from publication.
