Four by Jane Blythe

Four by Jane Blythe

I enjoy reading the Count to Ten series because Author Jane Blythe is not afraid to bring to life the graphic violence that truly can occur with crime. Before I started reading Four though, I had to take a moment and metaphorically put on my big girl panties to ready myself for this story. I might enjoy and appreciate this series but that does not mean that it doesn’t scare […]


Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich

Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich

Dangerous Minds is the second installment of the Knight and Moon series. What draws me to this series is that it is just comical. I mean where else can I read a book that has phrases like “whack-a-doodle and “crap on a cracker.” I also very much enjoy the light-hearted romance that is developing between Emerson and Riley. I like that they are both aware of the building attraction but […]

One Taste of Crazy by Amanda Siegrist

The A One Taste Novel series is set around a group of friends who started out working in the same firm until an event occurred that changed their lives forever. I really appreciate that each book in this series focuses on a specific character but also includes the characters from previous books. Dee O’Malley was introduced in the first book of this series but it was not until One Taste […]

Dark Sahale by Sam Ferguson

Over five-hundred years ago Nagar’s Blight, a curse that was created by Tu’luh the Red and Nagar, was instrumental in the dragons leaving the Middle Kingdom. The curse used the inherent evil in a creature to turn it into a mindless drone that could be used as a weapon by the one that controlled it. That curse was recently lifted, Tu’luh had been slain, and now the dragons were slowly […]

The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy

The Disappearances is a wondrous tale that is steeped in historical elements and a delight to the imagination. The writing is well crafted, eloquent and rich with details. The characters are developed, unique and memorable. This is a young adult novel and it has the strong emotional pulls that would resonate with that audience. It also has whimsy that would appeal to all readers. This story is set in the […]

Poison and Prejudice by Chelsea Field

I absolutely adore the Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery series. It feels like my birthday every time a book in this series releases. I always enjoy reading about what is going on with Izzy and her gang. This series installment was no exception. It kept me chuckling and hanging on to see what crazy situation Izzy was going to get herself into again. In Poison and Prejudice, Izzy and all […]

Blog Tour Review: Cherished by Christina Bauer

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Starting a series on the third book is not the easiest thing to do. The Author did a fantastic job of including backstory details that helped me to clearly understand what had happened in the previous stories so that I would clearly understand the impact of current events. Cherished is the type of book that you can […]

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew J. Sullivan

As a book reviewer, I am almost always drawn to stories involving bookstores or libraries. When I came across Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore I was of course drawn to it. Adding the murder-mystery just made it even more enticing. Also helps that the cover is very eye catching. What I thought was going to be a cozy mystery turned into a true murder-mystery style story with red herrings, […]

Dominic’s Nemesis by D. Alyce Domain

Dominic’s Nemesis was a thrill ride into the paranormal. This story has an abundance of supernatural abilities, a little demon possession, and ooh la la romantic love. I know you are wondering how that is even works together but the writing weaves a story that has a strong plot with well-developed ideas and subplots that are tied together nicely. It makes for an exciting, steamy read that will haunt you. Dominic […]

Smugglers & Scones by Morgan C. Talbot

Smugglers & Scones was a delightful cozy mystery that was filled with adventure, mystery, and murder most foul. This setting for this story is in a small, quaint town named Seacrest. This town is nestled on a narrow strip of land between the Pacific Ocean and the coast of Oregon. In this sleepy town is an establishment called the Moorehaven Bed and Breakfast Inn. This inn is unique in that […]

Review: Forgotten by Neven Carr

Forgotten was just lovely! It is a superb tale that is intricately woven with details and developed characters. This story takes place over a matter of days but the start of it all stretches back over a decade. Claudia has never really been bothered by her lack of memory from before the age of seven but it quickly becomes apparent that there is something being hidden from her, something that […]

The Watcher by Bella Jewel

Suspense, thrill, and romance? Check, check, check. I loved this story! The Watcher is the kind of book that you read and pray that it never happens to you! The start of this novel had my heart pumping and it did not stop from there! The story is told in the present but there are creepy and suspenseful flashbacks that tell us readers what Marlie suffered through. It is like […]


Intricate Deceptions by Jennifer Rayes

Intricate Deceptions by Jennifer Rayes

What drew me to this story was that it involved human trafficking and that is a tough subject to tackle. Intricate Deceptions starts out with its main character Gaia waking up in a cell without any memory as to how she came to be there or where “there” even is. Gaia also quickly realizes that she is trapped and is not alone. Not only is she not alone in the […]

Only the Few by L.N. Denison

Only the Few was everything I was hoping for in a post-apocalyptic read. It even has a gore factor that will make you squeamish if you can’t handle the thought of cannibalistic creatures. I will freely admit that it makes me sick at the idea. This story follows the events that happened after a mass bombing, think nuclear holocaust, that manages to destroy most of the British Isles. Corporal Catherine […]
