The Opposite of AddieThe Opposite of Addie by Julie C. Gardner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. This is a romance story that is written with a ton of heart and soul. I loved being pulled into the story right from the beginning. The characters made the story engaging as they bring the story to life. This was an emotional story that took me on a roller coaster ride that was hard to put down. I had no problems connecting to the characters that had me turning pages fast. This is a story about a single mother named Addie. Twelve years ago she left Jake’s life with a secret and now the past has come to the present. Jake never knew he had a daughter but with determination he wants to win Addie back. His one problem is that he has a secret that will keep them apart if she knew. What will Addie do? Will she run again or will she give Jake a chance? I loved watching the growth in this story as well as the trust building. They made such great characters that they made the story easy to read and feel realistic. I highly recommend this book.

Key to TirumfallKey to Tirumfall by J. Drew Brumbaugh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the third book in this series which I enjoyed just as much as the previous two books. I highly suggest reading this series if you have not done so This is a well developed story that has characters that are easily connectable. They made the story easy to read and entertaining. This is a fantasy story that I had a hard time putting down. In this book Isabella believes she is the child prophecy until she finds out the truth, that Gwen is the prophecy. What will happen when the truth comes out? The tower at Tirumfall holds secrets but it may just be the secrets Isabella is looking for. Unlocking this tower could be good or it could be bad, you will have to read this book to find out what happens. The characters really do bring this story to life and easy to read. They are strong and well developed. I highly recommend this book and this series.

This is the second book in this series. It can be read as a stand alone but I highly suggest reading the first book too. I enjoyed this one if not more than the first one. This is a well written story that has characters that not only make the story come to life but also so entertaining. I had no problems connecting with them.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author which I enjoyed and I look forward to reading more from her in the future. This is a historical time travel story that is engaging and kept me turning pages. It is a well written story that has characters that I had no issues connecting with. They bring the story to life and made me feel as if I was right there with them. I enjoyed how the author’s details made the story easy to read and easy to keep up with. Maggie was talked into going on an archaeological dig with her father. When she finds herself transported back in time, 450 years, she finds things are just as exciting as her father’s stories. This is where the story starts and was hard to put down. What happens next I highly recommend reading this book. I don’t regret picking up this book and neither will you. This was a great, historical story that I highly recommend.

Shattered SnowShattered Snow by Rachel Huffmire
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author and I look forward to reading more from her. I enjoyed this book as it is full of fantasy and time travel. This is a well written story that has details that make the story come to life. I had no issues connecting with the characters as they kept me turning pages to the end. This is an engaging, fast paced story that pulled me in right from the first chapter. Keltson uses his looking glass to rescue people who he feels needs happier endings. When he sees Margaretha bite into a poisonous apple he decides to play with fate and give her a choice. This is where the story takes on a fantasy much like a childhood tale. Will Keltson lose all the work he has done to change people’s fate? What will happen with history and fate? I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens to Margaretha, Keltson and his assistant. They made great, believable characters that took me through various emotions about them. They made the story engaging and easy to read. This was a great afternoon story that I am glad I picked up.
