Manhattan’s 16th precinct seems to be crippled by flu and men are short so when partners Nick and Victor get given a case , it looks like an open and shit case but it’s to far from it ….
It looks like suicide but it’s murder and with the body count piling up and personal matters my nerves are shattered on behalf of these 2
If you like a fast paced book , be patient you will be rewarded , I promise 😉 I was pretty much hooked from the get go ❣️📕and a lot of effort was put into research for this , well it seems that way but al in all a thrilling read 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This can be read as a stand-alone but once I got into it I was eager to read the previous books as well ❣️📕
I’ve always loved a who-dun-it and this one intrigued me and what a treat it was !
So Jorja( love the spelling ) is called upon to investigate the death of a former policeman , there are to many questions and too little answers and expertise is needed …..
There’s a lot happening and poor Jorja is almost left battling this one alone while contending with curses , artefacts and what seems to be increasing body count and let’s not forget her own safety is at risk , it seems the closer she gets to truth the more dangerous it gets and someone is hiding something and they’ll doing anything to protect their secrets it’s seems …..

The injustice of it all , going to hail for a crime you did not commit 🥲 at least when Ted is released the first face he meets is a friendly one , the moment the elderly lady shared her juicy apples with him I know I’m done for , kindness speaks volumes 😍he’s on his way home to help his family with their Christmas farm and winery ..,.
Now Ted needs to keep his nose clean and out of trouble , his family is so excited to have him home and now they start living and healing from their wounds left by the harsh judgment passed by the judge that was determined to make an example of Ted …..
Sam is his probation officer and not did I laugh when a pretty dainty lady arrived as opposed to a man 😂but she’s good people and she hats heart of gold 😍
The love this family shared is precious and something to treasure it brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion
Robyn was Ted’s love and thought the trial she was there to support him and she was on her way to becoming a hotshot lawyer I’m the big city but then life happened , Robyn stayed home and looked after her grandmother living a serene life in her hometown …..
I’m not sure if it’s because I was in a tender state before reading this book but let me tell you something I cried hard I’m not even going to try and deny it but here’s the thing these people are so real and what happened to them is so unfair and this story is about their redemption, forgiveness, healing and moving on .
This is one of those reads that you want to share but also don’t want to share because you feel like you’re betraying them but at the same time sharing their story will encourage others 🥰

Read this as a stand alone and yes there were some moments where I was a bit confused. However that was only a handful of times, so truly this CAN be read as a standalone. However if you want to know the full in’s and outs – read the previous two books unlike me. This book was overall a good read and had a lot going on. Good vs evil, race issues & discrimination if you would ( gave me Hitler vibes or current day race issues you see in the news :/ ), betrayals, growth, Changes, lots of action, and literally so so much more. This book will suck you in and keep you hooked until you finish it. I hope to read the first two books some day soon so I can get the full background. This is my first book by this author and certainly will not be my last.!

I really enjoyed this book! Not only is it a classic example of good vs evil, but it addresses racial issues from an understanding point of view. Full of magic & action, the main character is such a strong person who always stops to do the right thing. Reading the first two books is necessary because the characters develop throughout the adventure and knowing their backstories is key. I will absolutely be reading this author from now on!

I really like the Amaleigha stories. While I do not have little children I think these books would be enjoyed by children under the age of 9. In this story Amaleigha decides it is important that the school library doesn’t have enough books for non English speaking children and sets up a plan to get more books. Amaleigha is always helping others or making them feel better about themselves. Such a great way to show children how important it is to care for others.

This story is about brother and sister rivalry. There is a good flow and the characters are likable. There is a strong moral to the story and the illustrations are wonderful. I would definitely recommend reading this story to children.
What a fun cover ! Everyone dreams of going to Hawaii right !? Even if you’re not a beach 🏖️ fan there’s just something magical about Hawaii ❣️
Tenley ( The Love Cynic) had me in stitches right from the start when she gives her enlightened opinion as to why woman don’t propose 😂😂😂and she has a jaded view of love but I think it’s because she’s been kissing frogs 🐸
Teagan ( The Love Guru) is a real sweetheart, he believes in love and HEA despite the fact he’s not found his perfect match he happily match makes others ❣️
Things get really interesting when a challenge is put out there , Teagan grew up in Hawaii , there’s a resort that’s under threat but he and so many believe in its love magic that he puts a challenge out there and soon enough Teagan and Tenley are headed for Kamana Wanalaya 😉 Teagan my friend you have you work cut out for you but you , Cupid and island magic have got this 🏖️🥰
The moment their feet touch the ground you feel the magic working and what follows is brilliant, the teasing ,the bantering , the fun and games . The people we get to meet are fun people the kind of people that start as friends and end as family ❣️
P.S. Sammy you’re cute ❣️🐾and just for the record it’s because of you I knew our Tenley wasn’t a love cynic , she just needed the right one xxxx

Such a cute book. As a ladybug lover, I appreciate the need to teach littles about them, and how to care for them. The illustrations are great! I have added this to my list of books to gift little friends.
The best parts of this book are that it touches upon controversial romance, it has so much quality writing compressed into a quick read, and the lovable characters, for sure. This author really has a knack for keeping the reader flipping the pages eager for answers to all of their unanswered questions. It was difficult to decide who to side with throughout the story, but I’m content with the outcomes, without giving too much away. Great read!
In this delicious book 2 of Elinor’s story; We find Elinor trying to enjoy delicious food in the southern town of Vouvant. Not is all it seems in this town. A young society and a widower have come to Elinor for help. On top of all that someone has tried to poison the king! We follow this wonderful story as Elinor tries to help and solve a mystery all at the same time. Will she do it just in time to save the king? Or will she be bested by the oh-so-frustrating Tristan Fontaine, duke de Archambeau? Just like in book one you are taken for a ride in a wonderful story that does not disappoint!

This story is an informative, yet entertaining story about a girl named Loretta. One day in the winter she finds some ladybugs and decides to bring them home. She becomes obsessed with finding all of the ladybugs. Eventually she has enough to share with neighbors. There were some informative details that I learned from this book. I think some younger children would be entertained by this story, but might struggle to read it independently. Ms.Wickstrom has once again done an excellent job at making science enjoyable to read about!

My kids loved this story so much, they acted it out together while I read to them! We had to read it multiple times so they could act it out, see the beautiful pictures and then act it out all over again. It was great to read to them, we’ll be reading it over and over for the near future. Highly recommend!

What a book to end the year on! A wonderful second-chance-at-romance novel around the holidays made it perfect for me to read as romance novels are my favorite to read this time of year. From the first page my heart ached for Ginny, understanding her dread of returning home, especially as Max awaits her return anxiously. But the farther into the story I got, I found myself for them to find their happy ever after together, especially seeing that he is the perfect fit for her. I encourage anyone who loves christmas romances to grab a soft blanket and curl up with it today!

This story takes place in Buckeye Falls, Ohio. Ginny returns to her hometown from New York to help her dad. All she wants to do is help her dad and not partake in any holiday anything. She ends up getting roped into helping with a Christmas jubilee where her ex is also a planner. Ugh, the last thing she wanted to do was to have anything to do with him. Max, her ex, still loves her. Can he be a part of her life again?

Ginny goes back to her small hometown to take care of her dad after surgery. She is forced to see her ex husband while she is there.
This such a sweet story reminder that communication in relationships is important. The two of them never fell out of love, but simply we’re not on the same page, which led to a divorce. Watching them rekindle their relationship led to the perfect happy ending.

Married Blind (King of Screen Book 2) by Morgana Bevan – Review by Jessica Stone
A wonderfully written contemporary romance, forced proximity, marriage of connivence, this book was a blast to read!
Our FMC Abi, is already working three jobs trying to make it, and afford to pay for the care of her sister, who has cancer. On a whim, she signs up to be choose for a reality tv show, (Married Blind)that has a big payout, the last thing she expects is to be chosen. Now all she has to do is marry a total stranger and fake being in love, easy peasy right, she can get through anything to help her sister.
Fin, our lovely MMC, heartthrob, famous actor, “the next Ryan Reynolds’s” is, well to put it frankly, a playboy. Fin, already having a bumpy imagine, and after being recently caught in a precarious position has one last chance to save his imagine, and his career for that matter. All he has to do is marry a total stranger, fake being in love, and have the whole world watch everything for three months. He’s an actor, this should be no problem for someone with his skill set, right?
This was a fun read, I love forced proximity stories, it definitely ups the angst and tension between the characters and there is absolutely no lack of that in this book. The relationship that forms between our characters is everything I wanted from this book and then some. It’s fun flirty, a little weird at times, but so very wholesome, it definitely made my heart beat a little faster. This is a standalone in the series and the first that I’ve read from this author but I’m excited to read more from her.

I really enjoyed Love Tools. It was full of family drama. I think we can all relate to that lol. Lily and Jake are from different parts of the world. They have different experiences but both lost parents in different ways. Their past trauma and relationships have shaped them to protect their hearts at all costs. Yet they both ignite a passion on each other. Will they be able to move past their issues? Or will they both end up broken hearted? You guys gotta read to find out .

I absolutely LOVE Greek Mythology so always look forward to reading any books based in it. This story did not disappoint and I look forward to reading others. You can read this as a stand alone book, but I do suggest reading the others too. However, I don’t think you’ll miss much! This story was action packed and had me on the edge of my seat. I enjoyed going on adventures with the MC.

This was such an incredibly cute read, with characters that you feel like you know! I personally loved that coming from a small town, I felt like this books was written about what I know. The plot kept moving so readers didn’t feel like the story was getting stale, but I kept flipping the pages. I would love to read more by this author.

Finn and Abi, Chemistry off the charts but are they willing to let themselves fall for the other? Both of them trying so hard to protect their own hearts but will they let go and see what they have right in front of them. Married Blind is the second in the Kings of Screen series. I have not read the first book and was not at all lost or confused by this book. They are total stand alones. I loved this story, the depth with which Finn and Abi both feel and care, it is a great read and moves along quickly.

I’m a pretty basic person when I choose books to read- and often solely choose them on the title. This series seemed more serious for me when i chose it and phew- I was wrong. I’m often reminded by good stories and novels why I shouldn’t choose them solely on a title or cover. (I usually choose books with the word mate or love or something equally romantic and gushy.) This was a juicy book- with my favorite supernatural elements: demons, angels, and demon hunters? Oh my! The characters were delicious and complex and just wonderful to read about. There was plenty of action to keep me interested and engaged- once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down! I’m so excited for future developments, not only in the storyline, but with the characters as well! I’m eager for the next in the series.

This was a really cute book, and I enjoyed it very much. Max and Ginny were together forever, until they weren’t. Max stayed in their hometown and follows his dream of opening the diner and making it his own, while Ginny goes to New York and follows her own. Are they truly happy with how their lives turned out after their marriage fell apart? This second-chance romance is worth the read for sure!

This book is the second in a series. It works quite well on its own and is easily followed. But it does pick up from the first book and would be enjoyed following it. After the initial set up, the story is fast paced and holds your attention well. Elinor Chalamet is bored and looking for another adventure. She definitely finds one at the Winter Revels. This was a captivating read and enjoyable!
