The Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware – Review by Bobbi Wagner

The Death of Mrs. WestawayThe Death of Mrs. Westaway by Ruth Ware
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read by this author, I enjoyed it. I will be looking for more from her. This is a suspenseful story that is well written and engaging. The characters are connectable and made the story feel real. Hal is a great character that has some money problems but when she recieved a letter about inheritance she may have found her way out of her mess. This is where the story really picks up and the twists and turns had me turning pages. The story started out slow but once it picked up, it took off and it was hard to put down. I highly recommend this book.

Brutal & Raw: Mafia Romance & Psychological Thriller (Beneventi Family Book 1) by Sonya Jesus – Review by Bobbi Wagner

Brutal & Raw (Beneventi Family, #1)Brutal & Raw by Sonya Jesus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. This is the first book in this author’s new series, I can’t wait for the second book. I have read all of this author’s books and this is my favorite yet so far. This is a well written story that has a little bit of everything in it including suspense that left me sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what was lurking in the shadows. Her characters are connectable and both good and bad which makes the story engaging and a page turner. Lyla is on the run from the mafia boss but she is also the one that has the control to bring his organization down. She is a great, strong character that has a great control but what will she do with it? I highly recommend reading this book and find out what happens next.

Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series #1) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Bobbi Wagner

Mountains Wanted (Mountains Series Book 1)Mountains Wanted by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an author I never hesitate to pick up as her books are that good. Her writing skills and ability to pull me into her stories keep me turning pages. This book is no different. It is a creative, well written story that is engaging with characters that pop off the pages. Sarah and James are two people who don’t want a relationship which makes them perfect for each other. What happens when it turns into more than just benefits? Now they are faced with chosing which side of the mountain to climb – passion or heartbreak. I highly recommend reading their story to find out what happens with them, which side will they choose.

Before the Second ShowBefore the Second Show by Thia Finn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this book. This is my first book by this author and I will be looking for more. This is a well developed page turner that I was pulled into right from the start. Her attention to detail along with the characters made me feel as if I was right there in the story. Emmy and Alex are great, strong characters. They are about to find out how complicated life can be for them. The past and present come together to make decisions hard but will it be worth fighting for? I highly recommend this book.

In Other Words (Boothbay Harbor Series, #1)In Other Words by Pamela Q. Fernandes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this story. This is not my first book by this author but it is my favorite so far. This is a romance story that pulled me in right from the beginning. The emotional rollercoaster had me turning pages fast. It is well written and engaging. The characters are connectable and brought the story to life. Trish has had some bad relationships and her last one is no different. She moves next door to a chef that may just change her mind about romance. What will happen when the past and tradition are called into play? I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens with these two.

The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash – Review by Bobbi Wagner

The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytalesThe Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great collection of short fairytale stories where the heroes are the females in the stories. There is a little bit of everything in this book from talking animals to castles. You will find a favorite among them for sure. The author’s attention to detail made me feel as if I was in the ballrooms and castles with the characters. The characters are a little different but they are engaging and make the stories what they are. My favorite thing about this book is how the females in the stories are the heros are the ones saving themselves and others. They are strong women and you don’t always see that in stories. I highly recommend this collection, you won’t regret picking it up, I didn’t.

The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart is by Jacquie Biggar – Review by Bobbi Wagner

The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart isThe Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart is by Jacquie Biggar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. This is not a new author for me but she continues to impress me with her stories that pull me in from the beginning and this one is no different. It is a well developed, emotional roller coaster of a story that has something for everyone including romance. The characters made the story pop as well as they are connectable and make the story engaging. This is a story of family ties that need healing, remorse, betrayal and so much more. Holly has a life threatening illness that sends her home. There is one woman that Levi hasn’t been able to forget and now temptation is pulling at him. They are great characters and I highly recommend their story.
