Review: Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

I love stories that have multiple points of view and this story has POV’s from all the main characters. I felt that every character was developed and infused with such personality. They were all distinct and I loved getting to know each one. I know everyone was super excited that this story was being pitched as reminiscent of Anastasia in a space setting but that was not the draw for […]

Do you love military action fiction? How about military action fiction with a whole lot of paranormal suspense and then some straight up horror?? If that sounds like something that you love to read, then this book, The Creator, is absolutely for you. Right from the start there is a military operation sent in to investigate an area where there may or may not be survivors from an unknown cause. […]

Review: Survive the Night by Katie Ruggle

To say that Survive the Night is my favorite book in the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series would be an absolutely true statement! I did not think that I was going to love Otto Gunnersen’s character as much as I did because I usually prefer more alpha male type characters but I loved Otto! He was so sweet and bumbling but at the same time fiercely protective, a girl could […]

Review of Hardened Hearts – 17 Stories of Difficult Love

In this day and age, love and love stories in fiction has become in some cases quite formulaic. Hardened Hearts has seventeen short stories that break the mold! Love is not always sunshine and rainbows, love can be passionate, desperate, painful, dark, as well as twisted and disturbing. With each story in this book I found a new idea of love and these stories crossed across many different genres as […]

Review: The Lying Kind by Alison James

What a great investigative mystery that The Lying Kind delivered! From the beginning I was invested in this case and not just because of the mystery of it all, even though that was such a draw for me. There was a great dynamic between all the characters in this story, especially between Detective Inspector Rachel Prince and her partner Detective Sargent Mark Brickall. They were a great duo and all […]

Review: Duty and the Beast by Chelsea Field

Duty and the Beast is the fifth book in the Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery series and I loved it just as much as I have the previous books in this series! I have read this series since book one and I love that I find the characters just as wonderful as I did at the beginning, and that is including the supporting characters. In Duty and the Beast, Izzy […]

Review: When the Stars Come Out by Laura Trentham

When the Stars Come Out is the fifth book in the Cottonbloom series and what drew me to this story was that the main character Willa was a mechanic. That is an unusual occupation for a female character to have and I was interested to see if she was a mechanic in name only in order to make the story different or if she truly played the part. I was […]

Review: Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey

Indecent Exposure is the second book in The Academy series and I just love this series!! This book can be read as a standalone but I love the fact that I had read the first book in this series, Disorderly Conduct, because it gave me much enjoyment to see how Charlie and Ever’s relationship has grown while reading this story. There is also the matter of Charlie’s older brother’s secret […]

Review: Five by Jane Blythe

Five might be my favorite book in the Count to Ten series thus far, it was that good! The start of this book takes place in the past and wow it was a memorable scene! Chilling, spine-tingling, and horrifying! I was immediately sucked into this book. I just couldn’t believe what was happening! From there the story moved on to the present where characters from previous stories were introduced and […]

Review: Love the Wine You’re With by Brooke E. Wayne

Love the Wine You’re With is the second book in the Vineyard Pleasures series and it absolutely can be read as a standalone book. There is enough explanation of what took place in the previous book that you are not left feeling like you’re missing the bigger picture, which is actually quite lovely. In this story, when Julien showed up to his cousin’s party the last thing he was expecting […]

Review: City of Endless Night by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child

City of Endless Night is the seventeenth book in the Pendergast series and it was a thrilling read! The start of this story snagged my interest mostly because I was wondering what the heck the kids had to do with anything related to the story. That was until they discovered a body in the oddest of places and the victim’s head was nowhere to be found. Then I was very […]

Review: The Devil’s Song by Lauren Stahl

When I picked up this book, The Devil’s Song, I was intrigued with the story from the start. I immediately wanted to find out what had happened in main character Kate Magda’s past. Her memories gripped my imagination and I needed to know more. Kate was an assistant district attorney and she was completely committed to her job as a prosecutor. She also deeply desired to be a part of […]

Review: A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Raybourn

A Treacherous Curse is the third book in the Veronica Speedwell Mystery series and I am very happy that it won’t be the last! Especially with how this book ended! In this story both Veronica and Stoker have come to terms, for the most part, with their disappointment that their scheduled expedition was cancelled due to the Earl of Rosemorran having hurt himself when he tripped over his tortoise. Even […]

Review: Twenty-Seven Tiered Almond Cake by Amber Laura

Twenty-Seven Tiered Almond Cake is a fun romantic comedy novel that made me laugh out loud at several points through the book. The main character Charlie was a complete pushover for her sister Erin and had managed to land herself in a dire situation when her sister announced her engagement. Despite not wanting her sister to get married to the guy she had just met, Charlie still agreed to be […]

This is a book that I loved and series I am absolutely going to continue reading! The characters in this book were memorable and the kind of characters I would want more of. They were flawed, honest, witty, sarcastic and even the animals in […]

Review: Gone on Sunday: A Cotton Lee Historical Mystery by Tower Lowe

Gone on Sunday: A Cotton Lee Historical Mystery is the first book in its series. It was an engaging read that took me on a journey through the lives and secrets of the residents in Homeville, Virginia. Cotton Lee was a woman who was smart and beautiful but was basically disregarded due to that fact that she was left with a disfigured leg and limp from having contracted polio when […]
