This is the debut novel of this author and it’s a nice Cozy Mystery. A really strong start however during the middle it Started to lack as it started to throw down in its pace. I thoroughly enjoyed the promise of this story as well as having the murders all planned out. Having your ex-boyfriend with the lead of the case for the murderers in your town is serving enough but when you are a suspect at the time as well you feel great. Will Red solve the mystery of these murders will Elizabeth be free to continue her newly divorced life?

Murder in the Lightning Room: A Historical MysteryMurder in the Lightning Room: A Historical Mystery by A.D. Brazeau
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This historical mystery is different than my normal eveyday reads (romance) but I really enjoyed it. It was nice diving into a mystery because I had figure out what was happening along with the main characters. There’s alot of elements to thus story, theres mystery and secrets and some twists and turns that I didn’t see coming and well… you can’t forget MURDER. This was one I’d recommend if you like historic mysteries!
I liked this authors writing style alot so I will be looking for more books by them in the future!
Happy Reading!

Insatiable Darkness (The Vigilant Book 0) by LM Preston – Review by Shea Gilkerson7/20/22

Insatiable Darkness (Vigilant, #0.5)Insatiable Darkness by L.M. Preston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very quick introduction to the series. EmVee is the new kid in town, who moved in with her trained boxer parents. In an effort to make an impression, EmVee quickly makes some friends and gets the notice of a couple of good looking high school guys. After getting herself in trouble a couple of times, she has to resort to sneaking out to find out what brought her parents here, any why kids are going missing.

This book offers lots of surface information, and quickly. It doesn’t get terribly involved, but keeps you interested in the story and coming back for the next in the series!

The Colors of Friendship (The Colors Trilogy Book 1) by K.R. Raye – Review by Christina Gran

The Colors of Friendship (Colors Trilogy, #1)The Colors of Friendship by K.R. Raye
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Colors of Friendship Book 1 by K.R. Raye

Great read—especially for young adults! Ms. Raye did a magnificent job captivating the audience and making them feel that they were also in the circle of friendship! Excited for book 2 in the series—very enjoyable and I love how she portrayed how you never really know what is going on behind closed doors in relationships. A beautifully written story that continually draws the reader in!
This story follows the lives of three best friends as they navigate family, relationships, the ups & down of friendship, and falling in love….& the struggles they face because of their differences. The author does a marvelous job outlining abuse and how it not only affects the person being abused, but also affects those who love the victim of abuse. The twist at the end is something you don’t see coming! Fabulous read! Looking forward to the remainder of the books in this trilogy.

Let It Be Love (A Mustang Prairie Romance Book 5) by N.D. Jackson – Review by Shelly Kittell

Let It Be Love (A Mustang Prairie Romance)Let It Be Love by N.D. Jackson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my goodness, I found this book entertaining and so very romantic. Kiki and Eric are trying to figure out how to make their relationship work. They are dealing with Kiki’s fame. The struggle is real and I found the plot realistic and well-though out. No chunks in it. The characters felt like they could be straight from any small town. They were very easy to relate to. The author dealth with a couple of real life issues in the story which really helped give it that home-town feel. I found my favorite part after the romance was the twist with Louie and a can of whoop ass. There is also redemption in the story for some of the characters. This is a terrific story that gives you all the feelings. I recommend it for all those romance addicts out there. Excellent contemporary romance. It would get more than a 5 star from me if I could give it.

Holy Cow! What an incredible book. Evaline, still mourning the loss of her mother, works for her father as his secretary but she dreams of working with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. She aspires to be a great detective and to use her skills and abilities as a witch to help solve cases. As far as she knows, Evaline is only a necromancer, meaning she can bring back the dead and she does just that during her adventure in the mirror world of London called Londinium. Evaline and her betrothed Delbert are whisked away to the mirror world to help find an artifact and stop Doctor Death from her reign of death and destruction before it is too late, and Death comes to proper London. While in Londinium, they come across the strangest and scariest of beings including witches and undead people. What will happen to them? Will they be able to return to London or forever be stuck in the mirror world? You must read this book! The characters are very well written and full of life and personality. The suspense builds up as the pages turn and I found myself unable to put the book down! I am so excited to read what happens in the next book as Evaline and Delbert continue on their adventure!

Oliver: A Story About Adoption by Lois Wickstrom Reviewed by Christina Gran

Oliver: A Story about AdoptionOliver: A Story about Adoption by Lois Wickstrom

SUCH a cute book. Loved the illustrations throughout the book and the message. Both my 10yr old son & 18 month grandson enjoyed the book and wanted me to reread! A true “feel good” story for the littles and would be a perfect gift for an adoptive family!
In the story, Oliver demonstrates that everyone, adopted or biologically birthed to the family, often reflect on what it might be like to belong to another family.
Best quote of the book is located in the opening paragraph: “he is related to his dad & mom by love & law”. Magnificent way to sum up the term adoption

SPOILSPORT (PIERCE BROTHERS BOOK 2) BY BELINDA WILLIAMS – REVIEW BY CARLIE DEL GALLO

Spoilsport (Pierce Brothers, #2)Spoilsport by Belinda Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Pierce Brothers Books series, and it was just as great as the first book! The way that the author writes these stories makes it as though you are in the action or story with them, rather than just reading their story on a page. I could not put down the book! Nadia and Lukes story is one that had me laughing with and at them through the pages and was one that I found myself speed reading through so that way I can know what happen. If you are looking for a fun lighthearted book to read, this is the one for you! I cannot wait to read the final book in this series and start reading others by this talented author!
