My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mermaid Tails
My granddaughter wants to be a mermaid (who doesn’t) and this book was absolutely perfect.
The illustrations are beautiful, and it helped her to stay engaged. Each page has a Fun Fact to learn a tidbit on Marine life. Letting their imaginations grow, with mermaid tails. What types of mermaids there might be and what types of tails they might have. I definitely recommend this book to anyone with the love of mermaids and the ocean.

The Mating Chance (Long Claw Pride Series Book 3 and LumberCats Series Book 2) by Brooke May – Review by Shea Gilkerson

The Mating Chance (Long Claw Pride)The Mating Chance by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shifters sometimes have to wait a long time to meet their fated mates. Boone watched all of his friends and family get the call and find happiness beyond what he could imagine. Cricket had heard the call once before, and began a life and family with her fated mate…and then he was taken from her. When she gets the call a second time, she immediately denies it – after all, no one had ever heard of a second chance mate before. Her love had died and she was resigned to loneliness for the rest of her days. But now, Boone has come around and is so eager for a chance with his fated mate.

As usual, human interference does nothing but cause trouble. In spite of all of the things happening on that front, Boone and Cricket are immediately drawn to one another – they are fated, after all. Will they be able to find peace, either together or apart?

This was my first read by this author and the book had a lot of activity, but it was well balanced and just added to the atmosphere. I’ll be reading more of this series.

Family Ties Family Lies by Jacqueline Boulden – Review by Amanda

Family Ties, Family Lies by Jacqueline Boulden 


5 star review 

This is a story about a perfectly, imperfect family, that find the importance of forgiveness and a love that always endures. Our main character Rose finds herself unexpectedly returning home for longer than planned, when her mother, Carly is hospitalized. Once at the hospital it quickly becomes clear that her mother is very sick. 


A simple task of getting photo albums out of the attic, opens Pandora’s box that forever changes Rose’s life. Her curiosity is piqued by an identical mystery, inscription in three books from her late father’s office. Rose has a journalism background, once her nose sniffs the hint of a mystery she is pathological when it comes to getting answers. Her mother is unwilling and unable to help Rose with answers. Rose has no choice but to start searching for them on her own. 


The tapestry of the small town and its characters is beautifully woven together. You will meet Aunt Tess, who runs the diner, the sheriff deputy, who’s knee deep in a big case, an ex boyfriend, that owns and runs the pub, a heart broken father and daughter, that run the library and an old mentor at the local paper to name a few. All that make the town richer for having them. Book lovers will easily recognize the author as one of their kind. 


This heartbreaking, heartwarming mystery is a must read. Each page compels you to turn to the next. As someone that has recently lost loved ones to illnesses, this is the book I didn’t know I needed. It was very cathartic for me. If you have recently loss someone you may want to recover a little first, or, the very least, have a box of tissues handy. 


Either way, read it and forgive, ‘We’re all frail human beings. Life demands a lot of us, pushes us, and we all err.’ It is said to get out the four things before you lose someone; I’m sorry, I forgive you, thank you and I love you. This book beautifully illustrates the importance and power in doing so.


Relic Hunters: Betrayal of the Gods (Relic Hunters Series) by Martin Ferguson – Review by Shea Gilkerson

Betrayal of the Gods (Relic Hunters Book 5)Betrayal of the Gods by Martin Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Relic Hunters book 5 is amazing, and I’m immediately going back to book 1. I love Greek mythology, the smooth transitions between past and present, Adam and Matt and the world that has been built and shared in this book. I was fully engrossed and didn’t feel confused about anything, but I did feel curious and interested in getting more engrossed in this world.

Adam and Matt are on the most important quest so far, and journey through Troy, deal with tragedies and Greek heroes, and a world full of wonderful characters. In the midst of all of this, they are on the run and being hunted as criminals themselves. The cover art drew my original attention, the summary made me interested, and reading the actual story has made me a fan. I can see these books even piquing the interest of non readers.

Kingdom of 7 Sovereigns: WolfKingdom of 7 Sovereigns: Wolf by R.C. Reigh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a new author to me, and the first book in this series. I am very excited to report that this book is so much fun to read! Fantasy, magic, romance, shape-shifting, suspense, action – this young adult book has it all. The characters are amazing and will hook you from the very beginning. Anyone who is a fan of Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones or even Harry Potter will appreciate this story. It centers around students of a magical Academy and includes pretty much all the elements of a fantasy – medieval princes and princesses, heroes, villains, etc. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a magical, vibrant tale full of a little of everything! Even if you aren’t typically a young adult/fantasy reader, this is definitely one to pick up.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve read book 3 in the series and it helped a bit with the details for this book but would highly recommend reading this series in order so you can get the full picture at hand. This story picks up with Tom leaving the agency and discovering some well hidden secrets. He waits patiently for Isabella to return home. Some unexpected visitors, part of the Operation SweetPea, come to Tom and ask for his help within the human trafficking realm. One twist after another in this crime ridden story.

The Alien & the Crime Boss by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Shelly Kittell

The Alien & the Crime BossThe Alien & the Crime Boss by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Alien & Crime Boss was a surprising story. A M/M romance that has the alien busting out his inner warrior to protect the crime boss who has found him. I can’t give away too much but it’s a story full of drama, adventure and some out-of-this world romance. These two go through a lot right from the beginning. It’s very interesting to watch this relationship develop because the characters are really from two different worlds. We get to watch them learn what love really is. It’s a good book for those interested in this trope.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a quick read that sent you down all sorts of twists and turns. The whole book from beginning to end took you on a turn you never expected. The characters and the story of mystery had me on a chase I wasn’t expecting. I enjoyed reading this one. I love that this is a series as well so I can follow along with where this goes from here. Great job!
