Malayeka (Heartstrings Book 3) by Brooke May – Review by Cindy Mayberry

Malayeka (Heartstrings Book 3)Malayeka by Brooke May
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Malayeka has her work cut out for her. She loves her job as a helper for Cupid. But as usual it’s not that easy of a job. She must deal with feuding families and a town who has their sides they are on. How is she supposed to get them together? What about Billie and Leo? Will they be able to bring the families and the town peace and form unity? This is a quick read filled with romance and I could not put it down. It is fast paced and exciting to read. The characters are also easy to fall in love with. The author has quite the knack for well written romances. I enjoyed this story and I know you will as well.

Dream-Shifter by Lois Wickstrom – Review by Cindy Mayberry

Dream-ShifterDream-Shifter by Lois Wickstrom
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fun read for middle elementary school agers. I’d say to anyone who is ready to read a chapter book, this one is perfect. It has everything a reader is looking for. Fantasy, magic, journalism, and the most important is the adventure. Gwendolyn is a Dream Shifter so she shifts in her dreams but wakes up as a girl. That is until she is woken in the middle of the night to the fire alarm. Her life changes drastically and now she needs to turn things around. Elk season is here and, well she is an elk. How will she change? Can she change back to the girl she is? No Spoilers. This author has become one of my favorite writers for children’s books. All of her books are fascinating and easy to follow. Her stories never drag on, she keeps the reader reading. Her characters are always fun to read about. They are also easy to relate to. I am looking forward to the next story.

Better Gnomes & Gardens (Mysty Haven Mystery)Better Gnomes & Gardens by Casey Cardel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was just as I thought it would be. I love gnomes and well I grab it because of the cover. Silly I know, but so is this story. Bob McLerney moves to Mysty Haven looking for adventure as well as a story to tell. Being a journalist, he wanted an unusual story to tell. After being fired from his job, for writing a story about Bigfoot. He meets Mr Weaver who offers him $ 1,000,00 to find his missing gnome. That is all I am going to tell you. No Spoilers! This is a new to me author. But like many of my favorites authors this one will too be added. I have not laughed as much as I did reading this story. The characters are funny and perfect for the roles they play. This story kept me reading as I was enjoying the adventure. I am looking forward to see where this authors takes book 2.

The Kidnapping by Linda Burson – Review by Cindy Mayberry

The KidnappingThe Kidnapping by Linda Burson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Be prepared for this funny romantic suspense story. Jenna has left her boyfriend and has decided to try out a different bar. Back story is Jenna has money and all of her previous boyfriends just want her money. Including Steve, her last one. Although he kept bugging her to add his name to her bank account. He hit the red flag and she was over him.Andy is minding his own business when a girl walks in and puts an envelope in his lap. Shocked, he tried to catch up with her, but she was gone. In that envelope he found a few thousand dollars and a note. That’s it, no spoilers. This is one you will need to read to believe it. This author has done it once again. Kept me up all night reading her book. But so worth the adventure, intrigue and suspense. The story is well written and fast paced. She got me on page two and I was off. Her main characters are just plain everyday people caught up in the kidnapping. I have read books from this author and never second guess buying her books. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Rage (Marcy Series Book 1) Audiobook by Linda Burson – Review by Cindy Mayberry

Only one word to start this review off, WOW! This is a great start to this series. Marcy is extremely independent and strong. Finding herself in a store robbery, her anger gets the best of her. As she gives the robber a beat down. Okay I had to laugh at the fact she just responded so quickly that the people around her were stunned, including the man at the register. But when her boyfriend and employees insist she get counseling for her anger issues. She decides to go as she knows she is angry but does not know why. Then in walks Liam who needs Marcys help in making mends against the people who killed his family. That’s it! No Spoilers! I have read many of this author’s books, and she never disappoints. Marcy is definitely strong and independent, Liam is seeking Marcys help and Brad, the long time boyfriend, is wanting to keep Marcy close. I love the characters in this story and am looking forward to seeing where this series goes next.

The Protector (The Freemasons Book 4) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Cindy Mayberry

The Protector (The Freemasons #4)The Protector by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Renee Cadmon is recovering from being taken and sold. After she is rescued she finds she is better off not leaving her room. Before she was taken she had a crush on her brother’s best friend, Declan. Now she feels he wants nothing to do with her, because of what she went through. Declan has always liked Renee, while she wants nothing to do with him. He still stays close by and makes sure Renee knows she is safe and protected. Declan also meets her for lunch, because he would do just about anything to stay close to Renee. That is all I will say about this fast paced and emotional story. This author has always impressed me with ner stories. This one did not disappoint. The author writes clearly and sends you through her book. I love her characters as they feel like friends I would love to hang out with. Their story is extremely believable, as well as heart wrenching. Have the tissue handy as you will need it. Also throwing your tablet is not a good Idea.

They think Jasper is what they need to find that balance. But they must teach her how to use her powers for good. This will become quit the test of their wits.

This author has written this book with teens in mind. She blends split personalities with puberty. Teen girls and boys will relate with the struggles viewed in this story. While this is just fantasy, the struggles will be real. The story is fantastic as well as fun to read. Scary at times but such a page turner. The author keeps it real in her book, real enough teens and young adults can relate. Job well done! Looking forward to reading more of your books.
