The Bad Twin by Avery Scott

4 Stars

When I first started this book I was so excited and got completely invested pretty quick. I truly enjoyed this book and would recommend it. It was a bit predictable and didn’t go as I thought it would but it was a fun story to read.

This is not my first book by this author and as always I enjoy her writing style and her stories always flow smoothly making them really easy to read. This I believe is only my second book ever with the twin mix up and as I said it felt predictable, I really liked Abby and found that I could connect with her, but I never really liked Hudson, I’m not sure if maybe it was just not enough development or what but I just never cared for him all the way through the book.

I really am looking forward to reading more from this author, as stated above, I like her writing style, and so far each book I have read by her has been different and does not follow a common thread each time, which I appreciate.

This is the final book in this series and I have only read the 2nd so far before this one so really feel like I need to go back and read them from Book 1 to this one so that I can get a complete and accurate feel for this entire story and give it the credit it deserves, but for where I am at this point I must say that even though I don’t normally read this genre I sincerely enjoyed what I have read. I love this author’s style of writing and I was able to truly enjoy this genre when it normally doesn’t hold my attention.

The perfectly placed twists in this book were like AWESOME and blew me away, I loved the whole idea of the storyline and the characters were amazing. I even kind of feel like I’ve been to Natale and kind of want to go back LOL

I say read this whole series, you really need to to understand and appreciate everything that goes on in this book. You won’t be sorry it is an awesome series and one that I can’t wait to read from beginning to end and have already told others to one click all 3 of these.

LOVED IT!!

4 Stars

Giving any book by this author only 4 stars is killing me, she is literally one of my favorite authors of all time but I have to be honest when I say, this one just didn’t hook me like her books normally do and I had high hopes for it.

The writing was spot on as usual and the whole idea of the book was definitely unique. This is going to sound odd but it was almost a bit too steamy for me, not something I expect from this author. It could just be my mood and a second try would make a difference but even though I knew there were some things I wouldn’t like going in, it still was just too much I think for me right now.

This does not change anything about my feelings for this authors books, this is just not my favorite and I can’t wait for her next book. You really must read this book yourself.. There was a lot to love and on any other day I may have loved it LOL The writing is as always amazing.

Love this author!

I simply adored this book, if I had one negative I would say I wasn’t ready to stop singing so wish it had been even longer.

I’m a full grown adult and thought this was amazing, I plan to read it to my young granddaughter this weekend and I know she will love it and I will probably buy her the hard copy for Christmas.

This author did a fantastic job on this and the illustrations were absolutely amazing.

Pick this up for all the little ones in your life. I promise they will be singing even after the book is done.

Loved it!!

…..and here I am again trying to find some unique way of describing this book written by this author that forever has me at a loss for words.

I’ll start with this book was sincerely off the charts HOT, but what I loved more was the depth of the story. I loved the first one but this one continued that story in a way that made it feel so so real. I LOVED the change of POV’s from the first book, still the same continuing story yet totally different.

This author is one of the only I completely trust to take storylines I can’t even imagine and go way above and beyond my comfort zone in my real life and make me realize there’s a whole nother world that is no less “normal” than my own, it holds as many feelings and emotions, issues and real life challenges as any lifestyle and I’ve learned through reading this author’s work to open my closed mind and truly respect that.

Phoebe Alexander is one of my absolute no matter what one click authors and has become one of my favorites to read, I can’t wait for the next as the park starts progressing further and to see who and oh my..What might happen next!

Loved it!!!…Read Sugar & Spice first, I can not imagine reading this one without that one.

OMG I FLOVED this book!! I really enjoyed the first one but this one is so far my favorite. I love love love the getting to know you through texts and phone calls. This was so much fun to read. The interaction between ALL of these characters was so awesome and it made the flow of this story so smooth and simply awesome!

Nonna has to be one of my favorite characters ever and the bars of soap had me rolling!! Another of my favorite things was the values and life lessons taught in this book to these characters at a young age, I respected that alot and it didn’t make them all seem like caveman day values, they were simply lessons that meant something..Hard to explain but I loved it!

I’ll admit, I need to go back and read both of these again before another comes out and I’m really looking forward to that because they are that good, but I need to get caught up and understand better the ongoing story going on involving the Seh, and all the different working parts of everything else. I get it but some of it has left me confused which tells me I read too many parts too fast and I tend to do that when I love books this much, and now that I know how some parts turn out I can go back and put my concentration on the others.

This author has crept up on me and her writing style is right up my alley, she has me completely invested in all of these people and I can not wait for the next and any and everything she ever writes.

Simply Awesome and Amazing…Read them both, in order..Trust me!!

Nicole Banks has found her way onto my oneclick, read anything, reread everything favorites list.

I loved this series and it is not possible to pick a favorite of the 3. I love them all but I think I’m kinda partial to Kris, I’ve loved her throughout and was so so glad this book was her story.

Ok so the story itself had me all twisted up, every emotion known to man was felt while reading this book. Im one of those that tries to figure things out as I go and once again I realize how bad I am at that, this author pulled the rug out from under me constantly and had me so invested in these people..All of them as it felt like one continuous story broke up into 3 parts, which is why I don’t recommend reading this as a standalone. Grab all 3 of them and make some time because your going to need it.

Reading this series has made me fall in love with multiple POV’s. It is done so well and I truly enjoy that.

I can’t recommend this book, this series, and especially this author enough!!

SECRETS NEVER DIE by Laurie Lewis – Review by Debi Kircher

Secrets Never DieSecrets Never Die by Laurie L.C. Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

SECRETS NEVER DIE by Laurie Lewis

5+++++ AMAZINGLY AWESOME Stars

I just don’t know where to begin with this review. Laurie Lewis has sat within the top of my “favorite authors ever” list since the first book I read by her, and that has not changed and I don’t think ever will. Each book is different, there is no pattern to her storylines and when I open a book that she has written I make sure I can read it in its entirety because that is what normally happens.

Secrets Never Die had me all twisted up, it was a never ending roller coaster ride constantly having me speculating the next move and finally just giving up and enjoying the ride. Being completely hooked happened on like page 1 and it never let up from there. The storyline was so unique and so precise with no stones left unturned, I was left with no questions or confusion, just simply wanting more! I did not want this story to end. I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I said I never got confused while reading because there were so many dips and curves along the way but it just took sitting and lining everything up in my mind to keep me on track. I can not even try to sum up what happened in this book except to say that the characters were amazing. I loved some, I liked some, and I strongly disliked some and there were a few parts where they made me smile. Suspense with a good mystery is one of my favorite genres and Miss Lewis hit this one out of the park.

I would love more from this town and these characters, I would love to know how the trip to Idaho turned out, but for now I’m going to go ahead and allow this story to end in my mind the way I want it to 🙂

Highly recommend this and anything by this author. She is truly amazing and sets the bar high with every book and then meets it or beats it on the next.

Not So Wrong (Love Grows Book 2) by Renee Regent

5 Stars

I was so looking forward to this book. I met these two in the first book in this series and knew this was their story and couldn’t wait to dive in.

Spencer and Melanie won me over immediately and the world around me did not exist while I read this book. It brought out all the feels and I’m not sure why but books that have to do with singers or music in general don’t normally catch my attention but this one sold me completely. I sincerely loved every word and that is thanks to this author’s beautiful writing style and her way with words.

“There are so many regrettable things I’ve done in my life. But it turns out, there was nothing so wrong that it couldn’t be made right. All it took was the truth.”

That statement totally touched me and I’m not sure why but I dont think Ive ever had it put like that and I love it!

I can not wait for Audrey’s story and I also can not wait to read these books again..I can not recommend enough!!

LOVED IT!!

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series by Claire Luana

5 +++++ Stars

I absolutely loved this series. It contains 4 books and I highly recommend reading them all in order.

 

The Confectioner’s Guild – 

This one was so unique and the added suspense and mystery had me hooked from page 1 and the last 25% of the book I was on the edge of my seat wondering how in the world she was going to make this all work…Brilliant is just one of the words that come to mind. So many things happen in this story that I’m not even going to try to sum it up

 

The Confectioner’s Exile – 

After reading the Confectioner’s Guild book 1 in this series it was completely awesome to go back and read Hale’s story. I don’t normally like doing this but it worked perfectly for me in this case. I was able to get a much better understanding of who Hale is and where he came from, and the lessons and the tragic losses he experienced along the way.

 

The Confectioner’s Coup – 

This was the continued story of Wren and I loved it as much as the first part of this series. She just can’t win when it comes to staying out of the line of fire with being framed for murder and getting out of that to now suspecting the king of being behind guild members being kidnapped and now the enemy has entered the city. 

There was some parts of this story that made me so angry and then parts that were so so sad. You don’t really ever know what your gonna get when you open up one of this authors books and I love that.

 

The Confectioner’s Truth –

There was a lot going on in this story, we met a lot of new people and visited many new places..I loved this part and I felt as if I was right there with Wren as she was making quick decisions and having a lot of inner battles…I found myself trying to help her and felt like I was feeling everything she was. This character has grown so much through these books and I have totally fallen in love with her, and poor Hale…I miss what feels like the old days with Hale and now there he is regretting so many things, this made me sad.

 

This author has done an amazing job with this series. I’ve loved every word and every page of all of these books. I absolutely can not wait to read them all again!! She ended this series beautifully and in my humble opinion sets the bar high for any other books in this genre. 

 

Brilliant and I can’t wait to read what is to come from this author!! This is one of those books/series that deserves so much more than 5 stars.
