Darcy’s Caution by Zoe Burton was a delightful little tale that just made me feel good. Although the story is about Will Darcy and his charming wife Liz, not far into the story it becomes about so much more. It’s about family. Not just the family you are born with, but the family you choose. As it becomes evident that Liz is in danger, not only does Will take the necessary steps to protect his wife, but you can almost see the circling of wagons, as their close ring of family and friends that are family, close in. This is a third book but it is just fine as a stand alone read. It whets your appetite for more and makes you wonder about the before. I will be reading the previous books and the next in this little series.
I give Of War and Taters by Ashley Chappell, 5 stars.
The sleepy little town of Merit is quiet no more. A bunch of reporters have flocked there once they heard about the rival gangs this town has. Little did they know they “gangs” were just a bunch of ten-year-olds. Plus the travelling circus decided to get some of this attention and stopped over there. Oh and don’t forget the ghost actor. Sheriff Stanley, used to nothing happening in his town, doesn’t know how to stop this sudden chaos and bad rumors. Then he finds a grisly discovery that hints at worse things going on. Will he be able to step up and take charge or is his little town doomed?
If you do not appreciate humor and satire, this book may not be for you. However, if you do, this book is right up your alley. Something completely different from what I’ve read of this author before, she does a brilliant job of putting just the right amount of humor and sarcasm into this story while still keeping it a mystery book too. Is most of what happens completely outlandish? Yes, but that is what makes it so great! At the same time, there is a touch of heart in here too. The kids great and the poor sheriff puts up with so much. The people could easily be your eccentric neighbors who live down the road. The story itself has so much going on in so many directions, but it all ties together wonderfully. I could not put this down until I reached the end. I would love to see more of this town in the future.
If you enjoy a humorous whodunit the likes of which you have never read before, this book is for you.

Happily Ever After – Brothers of Camelot Style by Necie Navone
5 out of 5 stars
Happily Ever After is a part of the Brother of Camelot written by Necie Navone and it was awesome I just love Ms. Navone’s writing and what she has accomplished in this series. The plot is awesome the characters are strong and well written. We get to see all the Camelot brothers and what there up to while getting ready for the wedding.
There was a boy and girl who fell in love the moment they met, only to be ripped apart in their teens before their love could blossom.
Fitz, never forgot his Bella and he grew up to become the bitter Camelot Brother, known as the man-whore of the group, with a motto of “One and Done” in order to drown out the memories of his lost Bella. Little did he know his childhood sweetheart was closer to him than he realized.
So with the help of the Camelot brothers they plot to get Bell and Fitz together again.
When Fitz gets his Bella back he is a changed man and he is not letting his Bella go ever again.
I highly recommend this book/series and I can’t wait to see what Ms. Navone has in-stored for us next with the Brothers of Camelot.
I give Jumping the Shark (Paranormal Talent Agency Book 5) by Heather Silvio, 4 stars.
Barbara is a demon and mayor of Las Vegas. She has done many things to get and stay in this position, and she is determined to stay at the top. Besides her visions told her this is so, right? But she can no longer trust her interpretation of these visions. Plus there is someone in town who will literally do anything to win the election. Can they be stopped and at if so, at what cost? Will her former lover who reappears in her life give her a second chance? Is that what she really wants?
I have read every book in this series and I love how every one of them is completely different, yet has a feeling of cohesiveness. Barbara is a much more complex character than I ever thought before. The other characters are back too, which makes it even more enjoyable. The storyline is also interesting and intriguing. Is the bad guy who you think? If so, why? You will be kept guessing until the end.
If you enjoy paranormal cozy mystery with romance, I highly recommend this book and series.

When you refuse to listen to your bladder in order to keep reading… you know you’ve got a good book. I literally could not put the book down or tear myself away until I finished reading the entire book. The characters and plot were full, rich, well-developed. I loved the ebb and flow. It kept me guessing and white-knuckled until the very end. Simply a fantastic book. Finding Wade to be a reliable author for an action packed ride. Her writing is one you won’t ever regret picking up.

Mooney is quite adept at weaving a tale with strong, stirring characters that immediately connect with the reader. I found myself immediately transported into the story and couldn’t disengage prior to finishing the last sentence. The main characters were relatable, fun, and had fantastic chemistry. Yet another book from Mooney that I thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommended reading!

The Protector: MAC: A Cover Six Security Novel by Lisa B. Kamps is is a book that is fast paced and high energy from start to finish. It can be read as a stand-alone although you should be aware that this does follow on from an earlier novella.
This book is amazing. It has off the charts chemistry, edge of your seat action and swoon worthy romance.
This author is one that really knows how to tell a story and to get you, as the author, fully engaged. As always this was a great book and clearly the start of a great series.
The Chosen was a brilliant and captivating read by Cari Schaeffer –it is also the first book that I have read by her and the first thing that I noticed was how fantastic her writing was. It was imaginative, creative and very entertaining. The action started straight away which I loved; it meant that I was already hooked into the story from the very first page. I really enjoyed the plot for the story and thought that it was very unique and my attention was definitely held throughout the book. I really liked the characters in the story and the bond that they had going through, I especially liked Gemma, I thought that she had this real determination about her along with a fierce loyalty that I admired!
I am really looking forward to seeing where the author takes this series and I can’t wait to read the next book.
I’m not sure I knew what I exactly I expected to find in these pages. What I do know is that I found this book from DeBlassie to be charming. This book’s delivery is different than most, being written in a way that I found myself appreciating the words and the intent behind them. The stream of consciousness found in these pages was easy to follow and appreciate but will find me rereading them to enjoy them again. Very well done. Something I will definitely recommend to others.

Immortal Desires A Collection of Paranormal Romance Novels by Various Artists
This is just a sweet little collection of paranormal romances. I like the variety of authors and the variety of paranormal subjects. I found that each book complimented one another and just added the right zest to the collection. Each author has their own unique style and I found this collection to be quite refreshing.
My utmost favorite was Flirty Dancing by Jennifer Theriot. This is the fourth book in her Series and I can I just say I wasn’t disappointed. I really like how the book seems to keep the flow of the series. I really felt the emotions that Kitty was going through. When your time is up your time is up but she definitely was gone too soon. I really like how the author ties different prospects of the afterlife and gives the slight comedy twist as well as keeping the romance in it. I really look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
I really enjoyed the rest of the collection but another absolute favorite was For Haven’s Sake by Nicole
Garcia. I love wolf books and I find that each author brings their own unique flavor to them. This book was no exception. I really like how he ends up helping with wild wolves. I like how the author sets up the story with Jax and how he ends up where he does. I found myself really routing for Haven and couldn’t wait for the secrets to come out. I have to say that I was really glued to the pages to see how it would all turn out with Jax’s and Haven. I found Jax’s character to be very brave to follow what he wanted to do and not just bend to the packs rules and take on being the Alpha. There was just a perfect balance of drama entwined with romance. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
