The Walls Between Us: A Borderland Love Story by Kate McGahan – Review by Bobbi Wagner

The Walls Between Us: A Borderland Love StoryThe Walls Between Us: A Borderland Love Story by Kate McGahan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this historical-romance story about the wall and before what it is today. I found this story to be interesting and also heartwarming. There is much going on in this book but it is easy to read and follow. This is a well written story that the author used details that make you feel as if you are right there with the characters. I had no problems connecting with the characters as they took me on an emotional journey of two people who live on opposite sides of the wall. This is about a couple; an American and a Mexican. They are complete opposites but as the story grows they find that they have things in common as well as learn about the differences in each other. Their relationship grows into something heartfelt but is love strong enough to break down the wall? Will destiny play a part in what happens to these two? I highly recommend this book. This is my first book by this author, I am glad I picked it up and you will be too.

Bird in a Snare (The Lord Hani Mysteries Book 1) by N.L. Holmes – Review by Bobbi Wagner

Bird in a Snare (The Lord Hani Mysteries)Bird in a Snare by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author. This is a murder-mystery story that I enjoyed to the end. It is a well written story that has characters that make the story easy to read. This is an interesting story that you never know who can be trusted. Hani is sent to investigate a murder but what he finds is so much more. As things get complicated for him will the superiors accuse the wrong person? This story did start a little slow but after a couple of chapters things picked up and it became fast paced. I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next and if the murderer gets caught.
