5 Stars!!!!!

This was such a joy to read. I have to admit I had the song going on in my head as I read it and that inner reading voice was singing the book. The author has such a sweet story here. If my children were younger I would definitely read them this book. It was quite catchy when the author plants the seed about the song association. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone with small children. I am sure it would become one of their bedtime favorites.

I really love it when I find new authors. This book was a real good read. I found the author’s style to be quite refreshing. I found the characters to be very realistic and relateable. The book kept me glued to the pages.

I really like how the story isn’t predictable. The chemistry between Gwen and Joe is very electric. The way that their love story plays out is very realistic. The author has a good balance of drama and romance. I found myself routing for Gwen and Joe. I felt as though the characters just jumped right off of the page.I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

This is just another great addition to this series. I was hooked from the beginning. I really enjoyed how the author told the story in a past tense story fashion. The characters just really jumped out of the book and into my imagination. There was just the right amount of drama with just the undertone of romance.

I really felt myself relate to Allie as I had a moderate form of the pregnancy illness she had. I totally found myself remembering that time and felt that the author really brings this to attention. I also found the authors use of PTSD really well written. There are so many things that can cause this and I found her use to be very insightful. I really found myself routing for Truck and Allie and found myself on the edge of my seat to see how things would end up. There are so many things that could have gone wrong but their relationship and characters were so strong it really made the book. I will definitely read more from this author and this series in the future.

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series by Claire Luana – Review by Caralee Loonat

The Confectioner Chronicle by Claire Luana
5 stars!!!!!

I have to say that this series is a really great read. Whether you are sat on a beach or just relaxing at home this is a perfect read. I enjoyed this series a lot even though it wasn’t my go to genre. I really like how the author was able to weave just enough drama and intrigue into the story. Each book blends right with the one before it.

Book 1
The Confectioner’s Guild (The Confectioner Chronicles book 1) by Clarie Luana

What can I say but I absolutely have fallen for this series. The author has such a unique way of
bringing the characters to life and I felt as though I was actually in the story. The refreshing
way that you are drawn into the book and just feel as though you are escaping into the world that the author has developed. I just couldn’t put this book down.

I really felt drawn to Wren from the very start. The drama that unfolds around her brings you to
the edge of your seat with anticipation. I liked how the author was able to not only throw in drama and intrigue but also weaved in just the touch of romance to boot. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Wren, Sable and Hale. Into the mix you have the chemistry between Wren and Lucas. The whole dynamic just adds to the intrigue in the book. I really cannot wait for the next book in this series. To get to delve more into the lives of the Confectioners and their world alongside the other guilds and see where the magic leads.

Book 2
The Confectioner’s Coup (Confectioner Chronicles Book 2) by Claire Luana

I am once again no let down. This is the second book in this series and the third book including the prequel to the series that I have read. The author really has such a great way of grabbing the reader and keeping you at the edge of your seat. I really found myself getting lost in this magical confectioner’s world she has created.

Book 3
The Confectioner’s Truth (Confectioner Chronicles Book 3) by Claire Luana

I couldn’t wait to get delved into this book and boy I wasn’t disappointed. This is the third book in the series and fourth one I have read by this author. The books just keep getting better and better. I was drawn in from the first page and couldn’t put the book down.

The author does such a wonderful job of keeping the drama going from book to book. There seems to be a smooth transition from the fist straight through to the third book in this series. To get to follow more the lives of Wren and her fellow confectioners as the head into the pending war kept me glued to the edge of my seat. The way that the drama unfolds keeps your attention. I wasn’t disappointed as I continued to read as the drama unfolded in this book. I really will be reading more from this author in the future and hopefully there will be more in this series.

I have to say that the more I read about Wren’s life the more I really find I am drawn to her character. She has gone through so much in her short time in the Guild and then to have to endure more. She is a very strong leading character and the author does such a great job of developing her character around the drama that unfolds. I really felt all the emotions vicariously as Wren went through them and in this book she has a roller coaster of them. She winds up losing so much and yet she still has Lucas. I really felt my heart in my throat as the book came to the ending and once again to have the book on a cliff hanger of sorts really has me anxious for the next book in the series. I will definitely be reading more from this author and the series.

The characters just seem to jump right out of the pages and into your imagination. I felt as though I was part of the action as it all unfolded. I really found the concept of the series to be quite unique and refreshing. The story is quite well written and easy to read. I definitely recommend this sereies and this author.

I do like to read different genres sometimes and this really was a good change. I really like how the author uses the past and history to help to enrich the story. I felt that this really added to the story and what a story. I love history and this book really fit in well with that.

The way that the characters interact is unique. I like how Liz is able to use her love of history and especially crime in history. The whole way in which her study and research begins to tie into the story is just amazing. I could feel her emotions as she was researching. I felt the sort of let down when she couldn’t really tie Al Capone in. I certainly enjoyed reading this book and I would definitely read more from this author in the future.

Wow! I love it when I am grabbed from the start and cannot put the book down. I have read this author before and this one was just as good. I really found the story refreshing and unique.

I really go pulled right in by Tails and Brodie. I love shifter books and these characters really grabbed me. I felt as though the characters just jumped right off of the pages and I was in the story with them. I found that the balance was just right with drama and just a little romance. I really found myself anxious to find out what would happen next. I definitely will be reading more from this author.

What an absolutely fantastic finale book. I found that the authors have such a wonderful group of characters and a refreshing plot and story. I found myself unable to put this book down. I really enjoy paranormal stories and characters. I felt as though I was there in the midst of the action.

I really found myself associating with Lorelei. She has so much to lose but so much to gain and I felt as though I was going through the emotions and drama as she was. I like how she is able to grow and move on from her past and how she is able to change the world she lives in. I really found that the authors were able to bring the plot and story to a great ending. The characters draw the readers into the drama. I really would like to read more from the authors in the future.

What an absolute fantastic ending. I was so excited to read this book and I was not disappointed. The author has done such a wonderful job of keeping the reader hooked and drawing the story to an ending. The book was just such an addicting read.

The twist that the author brings into the story was quite unexpected but so good. I like how the book was not predictable. I like how the author balances the action and drama with a slight romance undertone. The characters are also so drawing. They just jump right off of the pages and I felt as though I was in the thick of the action with them. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

This is yet another book in this series I have read and I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed yet another trip into the world of the Fae and ancient Ireland and Scotland this time. The author has quite a unique world that she has created. I was just as enthralled with this book as I have been with the others in this series I have read.

The characters are refreshing and bring the story to life. I really like how the author entwines the two worlds together of the enchanting Fae and the magic and the real world , I really enjoyed the cultural pasts that the author uses in this book of Ireland and Scotland. I like how the story wasn’t predictable. Eamonn and Katie’s characters really drew me more into the book. I like how each were each other’s second chance. I really routed for Eamonn at the beginning as Katie was really off limits to begin with. I also like how Eamonn’s family history with the brooch and the Fae gets entwined into the story. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
