Journal Entry 1 by sharalsbooks from Mesa, Arizona USA on Monday, February 9, 2004
Jame Swift has one priority in quiet Beaumont, South Carolina: running the local newspaper. Romance runs second. But with the arrival of her silent partner, the notoriously mysterious and sexy Maximillian Holt, Jamie's life gets shaken up. Max claims he's here to give his brother-in-law a vote of confidence. A former wrestler, Frankie Fontana's now taking his shots in the political ring. Beaumont could use a new mayor with scruples, but what it gets is a crime --- and what Jamie gets is a story that's taking her for a ride on the wild side, complete with two assassins, a washed-up stripper, and an insane poacher. Between a spray of bullets and a fast getaway, could it get any more romantic --- or dangerous? Max and Jamie are betting their lives on a long shot.

Bookray Rules

1. Reading has to be relaxing, I find. So I'm not going to set a rule that you have to finish the book within one month or within three weeks. But, of course it's not preferable that the book will stall somewhere. Please keep in mind others are waiting to read the book so keeping it for two months is not appropriate either. If you don’t think you will be able to read the book in a timely manner, please let me know. I can move you further down the list, if necessary.

2. When the book arrives, please let us know that you received it, by making a journal entry.

3. Start reading :-) When you're more than halfway through the book, PM the next person for their address.

4. When you've finished the book, make another journal entry with your thoughts.

5. Release the book to the next person on the list.

6. The last person on the list may release the book in the manner of their choosing!

7. Have Fun & Happy Reading!

Journal Entry 5 by KatieDeMaio from Jonesboro, Arkansas USA on Tuesday, March 22, 2005
I absolutely loved this book. I finished it this morning. Luckily I had Full Speed here at the house and I have already started reading it.
Jamie and Max are GREAT characters. I am passing this on to HallieK.
Thanks so much for sharing this one!!!

Journal Entry 6 by HallieK from Austin, Texas USA on Tuesday, April 12, 2005
I got this one in the mail yesterday. I think I'm reading them backwards. Oh well....so far I like them!

Journal Entry 7 by HallieK from Austin, Texas USA on Wednesday, May 4, 2005
Well, I am reading them backwards, but it works out okay. This one was pretty good. I wasn't sure about it at first because I don't think this series is as good as the Stephanie Plum series. But, once I got into it, it was funny and turned out to be a fast, fun read. Deedee and Beenie are hilarous! Especially when Beenie has his accident! Thanks for sharing sharalsbooks!

Mailing this out to Danesnboxers on 05/05/05! Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Journal Entry 8 by danesnboxers from Union, Missouri USA on Thursday, May 19, 2005
Received in the mail this past weekend. As soon as I finish the book I am reading, I will read this one so that it can continue on its way.

Journal Entry 9 by danesnboxers from Union, Missouri USA on Saturday, May 21, 2005
I finished this in one day. It was a quick read and OK. I'm not sure I am really a fan of the series.

I am mailing to lisabb2 Monday.

Journal Entry 10 by lisabb2 from Grimes, Iowa USA on Friday, May 27, 2005
Just got in the mail today. Will read shortly!!!

Journal Entry 11 by lisabb2 from Grimes, Iowa USA on Sunday, June 5, 2005
Great book!!! I got a good laugh out of it. It's not as good as the Stephanie Plum series but still a good read!!! Can't wait to read the others in the series!!

Book will be on it's way with Full Speed to timollie5502, since Bestaunt asked to be skipped, once I get the mailing info.!!!

Journal Entry 12 by timollie5502 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA on Friday, June 10, 2005
Just got this in the mail today with Full Speed! I'm looking forward to getting to them both very soon!

Journal Entry 13 by timollie5502 from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA on Saturday, June 18, 2005
This was such a cute story! I love Janet Evanovich's style of writing - it's so quick to read, and so witty. I agree that it's not quite as much fun as the Stephanie Plum books, but I'm still going to enjoy reading this series too!

Mailed to CheriePie on 6/27 with Full Speed.

Journal Entry 14 by CheriePie from Campbell, California USA on Thursday, June 30, 2005
Received this one, along with Full Speed today. I've got a few other books here to get to before these, including Full House, which is the first book in this series, before starting on these two. (Apparently, it's not really necessary to read these in order, but since I aquired a copy of Full House from PaperBackSwap, I figured I'd read them in order after all.)

Journal Entry 15 by CheriePie from Campbell, California USA on Wednesday, July 13, 2005
This is the second book of Janet Evanovich's Full series.

This was a quick but fun read. Billie and Nick are no longer primary characters in these later stories, and they are only referred to briefly, with regards to raising Max from 16 on. This book also contained more of a mystery than Full House, as I believe all of Evanovich's later books do. I believe the next book in the series, Full Speed, picks up where this one leaves off, with Max and Jamie heading to Tennessee to try to find the preacher and get some answers from him about the corruption that was unearthed in Beaumont in Full Tilt.

I'll hang onto this and send it along with the next two books to Faithful-Reader when I'm done. (Alternately, if she prefers, I'll send them to her singly, or the first two... I emailed to ask which option she'd prefer as I don't mind sending them in a couple shipments if she wants to start reading them immediately.)

Journal Entry 16 by CheriePie from Campbell, California USA on Monday, July 18, 2005
Sending all 3 books from sharalsbooks' bookrays, Full Tilt, Full Speed, and Full Blast, off to Faithful-Reader.

They're heading out in tomorrow's mail stream (July 19, 2005) via Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation # 9102010521297572064852.

Journal Entry 17 by Faithful-Reader from Aurora, Illinois USA on Sunday, July 31, 2005
I have all three books in the book ray now and will get on them right away.

Journal Entry 18 by Faithful-Reader from Aurora, Illinois USA on Wednesday, August 24, 2005
Thanks for including me in this ray !! I just love Evanovich's style of writing and her ability to inject humor into her books. I did enjoy this series - it was a great change of pace though I think overall, I prefer the Stephanie Plum series. I have mailed this book to brwnigrl on Monday. Delivery confirmation # 0305 1720 0002 4248 6569

Journal Entry 19 by sharalsbooks from Mesa, Arizona USA on Wednesday, November 23, 2005
brwnigrl has not responded to my PM's on the status of this book so it appears the ray has stalled. Unknown when the book will resume its journey.
