Wrapped Up In You
By Erin Bevan
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Christmas in July!
I enjoyed this Holiday story. 100 degrees here at home, reading about snow and Santa. Jenny soon to be Queen has many choices to make. She is about to turn 21! She must also marry. As her husband must take over for Santa. But as we know nothing is that easy. 30 suiters, 21 days and the pilot that crashed and burned the toy factor 1 month to get it all done. Make toys for children all over the world. Help the pilot get his memory back. Meet and marry Santa. Easy? Nope!

Erin Bevan wrote this fun romance story. It’s not just about Christmas. She has made a great group of characters. Loved that there was enough going on, in this romantic story, to keep my interest. She will get yours too. This may be a quick read, but believe me when I say “You won’t be able to put it down”. Every chapter gets you deeper into this story. Great Job Erin Bevan!!

Good Bones
By Maggie Adams
☆☆☆☆☆

This is a short story. One of those quick reads, to fill in that few moments you have to spare. Two young adults have one spot they both want. An old rundown mansion. Both of their reasons are valid, one has money and one does not. Will Griff and Casey come to an agreement? You will need to read this story and the others written by many authors.

This Anthology has many great stories and just as many great authors. The one thing I will take from Feisty Lawyers is the many new authors. I can add to my list of Must Read Books. Job well done Maggie Adams!

FINDING THE DREAM
REBECCA STEELE SERIES
BOOK 2
BY JOANNE PATTERSON
☆☆☆☆☆
This is such a beautiful romance story. There is an inspirational feel to this book. Safe for all YA through adults, and such a comfort book.

Becky Steele is back and her life has taken a 360 turn around. Music, horses and the cowboy life. Life is different, but so much better. But let’s not forget about Chance and Cassidy. Is this really what Becky wants? Bet you’re as surprised as I am.

Joanne Patterson has written this beautiful story. Her book is smooth reading, well written and loaded with goodness. Add in the twist and read how Becky works through it. I fell in love with the characters in this story as well as the animal’s. But most of all I fell in love with this author. I’m looking for more! Well Done Joanne Paterson.

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5) by Seelie Kay – Review by Cindy Mayberry

Martimus (Feisty Lawyers Book 5)Martimus by Seelie Kay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Martimus
Feisty Lawyers
Book 5
By Seelie Kay
☆☆☆☆☆
Not just another adventure in a suspenseful setting. The adventure begins with 8 missing women, and nobody knows of their disappearance, until the wrong girl goes missing. Upon investigation, there is so much more than expected. Is it human trafficking? Is it for money, if so how much? How about drugs? Follow Cate and the group as they work their way through another tough and challenging case.

Seelie Kay takes us through the wringer with this one. Get out the tissues, and get ready to take a ride on this new roller coaster. Martimus was not what I expected. But I was in no way disappointed. Seelie Kay has an unforgettable imagination, and will keep you wanting more. You can tell she brings her all, while reading this story. I love her characters, especially the strong-willed, independent women. This is a must read! Along with the rest of her Feisty Lawyers Series. Well Done Seelie Kay, Well Done.

Dares & Dice (Spicetopia Book #5) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Cindy Mayberry

Dares & Dice (Spicetopia Book 5)Dares & Dice by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dares & Dice
Spicetopia Book 5
By Phoebe Alexander
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Best romantic rollercoaster ever!

Dice and Dares is a mounting romance rollercoaster! Makenna and Ty are at their Bachelorette and Bachelor party. Not together two separate parties, two separate weddings, joined with a scavenger hunt. This story has continued to bring new adventures. So what you are about to read is Romance at its best! No spoilers! You need to read it to believe it.

Phoebe Alexander wrote this Romance novel. She started on page one and climbed to its peak then the drop came. I love this story and the characters. I suggest you read this series in order. Not only does Phoebe Alexander give you some HOT scenes, but every book builds this story. I am looking forward to reading more from Phoebe Alexander. Not for those under 18, due to sexual content. I so want to go to this park, too bad it is only in books. Thank You Phoebe Alexander for another 5 ☆ story!

Grace’s Ghosts By Stephenie Wilson Peterson – Review by Cindy Mayberry

Grace's GhostsGrace’s Ghosts by Stephenie Wilson Peterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Grace’s Ghosts
By Stephenie Wilson Peterson
☆☆☆☆☆
This is a great Chapter book for middle school students and adults. This was a fun book to read. It has it all, ghosts, wild imagination starter, potions, spells and a 12 year old who can see ghosts. But I know that kids will love this story starting on page one. In walks Grace. Does she really see ghosts? Give this story an audience.

Stephenie Wilson Peterson has hit the nail on the head with this one. Kids who can read chapter books, will want to read this book. Those who do not read well, would love it if you read it to them. I love Grace and her self connection with the characters searching through this story. All I can say is What A Fun Fantastic story for all to enjoy! Nice job Stephenie Wilson Peterson!

Girl Trap
A Madeline Dawkins Series
Book 3
By Cynthia Hamilton
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
Another great mystery with plenty of suspense.

Madeline and Mike are at it again. Madeline is searching for a missing young lady, who has been missing for 12 years. She knows something is amiss as she has not touched any of her money. Just not right. Mike on the other hand is searching for his cousin’s missing girlfriend and her sister. Both investigations come on the same day, 3 ladies missing and a small trail takes off. Will all 3 ladies be unharmed? Killed? Runaways?

Cynthia Hamilton has done it again. Her book is loaded with suspense and crime. I love her characters and the story that is wrapped around them. This story never stops, it is smooth, terrifying, tense, and builds a roller coaster. At different points of this book I had fought many emotions. Now I am looking forward to book 4. Great story Cynthia Hamilton!

Night Justice
A Chicago Vigilantes Novel
Book 1
By India Kells
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
This is an intense romantic story. Not for those under 18. Due to adult content.

Orla Karlsen is a top notch journalist and he is on a deadly case. She is strong willed and independent. Has learned to fend for herself. Now she is in deep and looking for a way out. In comes the Vigilante. Is he good or bad, only reading this book can answer this question. Don’t forget the Phantom! It must be stopped.

India Kells is the writer of this Suspenseful Romance. This was really intense starting on page 1. Kept me on the edge of my seat. This is one of those stories, you can’t put down. I love Sam! He is so intense and sexy. That is how he was written in this story. I also love strong women, ones that can defend themselves. India Kells has really done her job with this the first book in the series.

Hansel & Gretel (Down the Rabbit Hole) Anthology – Review by Cindy Mayberry

Hansel & Gretel: Down the Rabbit HoleHansel & Gretel: Down the Rabbit Hole by Autumn Sand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hansel & Gretel
Down the Rabbit Hole
Anthology
By Amy Allen and 4 more
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
This is loaded with many versions of Hansel and Gretel. Everyone worth the read.
While I read all of the versions, my favorites are……

The Sweetest Day – by Debra Parley
Every Story has a beginning, but the gingerbread and candy house were missing. That is what makes this story fun to read. Welcome to the pretty princess pink house. I love this version and that is what made Debra Parley a fun author. Her story is complete in its few pages. The characters are clever and perfect for this story. Job Well Done Debra Parley!

The Shadows That Move – Lorah Jaiyn
Okay! This story also took you on a different rollercoaster ride. The house involved is bound by tall trees and the shadows within. Missing children, strong women and Witches oh my. Lorah Jan wrote this suspense building story. She also left you wanting more, so much more that I will be stalking this author for more stories.
The best part about reading Anthologies is the fact it guides you to look up and read other authors.
