Trouble in Mind (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 2) by Donna S. Frelick – Review by Emily Walsh

Trouble in Mind (Interstellar Rescue, #2)Trouble in Mind
By: Donna S. Frelick
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Trouble in Mind: Interstellar Rescue Series Book 2 by Donna S. Frelick was an exciting, detailed original read, that had me hooked.

The second book in this series, we are taken on a new adventure, a new mystery, with new MC’s. In saying that, this book can be read as a standalone. Like the first, this book is told in multi POV, so lots more details and added impact. And I will tell you that, this book has more than impact, it’s gripping, compelling and engaging. There is so much going on outside of the main plot, that you forget you’re reading. The detail is top shelf, it pulls you in and makes the world/s, all the more realistic and picturesque. The MC’s interaction where fun, emotional and I quickly start to care for them.

Overall this book is worth your time and energy. It’s edgy, well written and addicting as hell, and if you haven’t guessed from that, this book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading.

By: Sarah Biglow
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sanctuary: A Paranormal Romance Novella (Captivity Book 2) by Sarah Biglow & Molly Zenk was a fast pace, thrilling read, that had me hooked from start to finish.

The second book in this unique compelling series, we are tossed back into the tick of things and it was pulling right out of the gate. I love how fast moving, detailed and exciting this book was. It has well rounded characters, complex plot, engaging dialogue and stimulating action. I flew through this read, and like the last I was sad when it ended. Yes, I do know there are more books, and I will be checking them out, (just pretty much, take my money,) cause I might be slightly addicted to this series. Now I will say that you have to read the first book before this one, as this series has a continuation plot line, and you will get lost without the first read. That and, since this book picks up right were the last leaves off, you’re going to miss out on that heart pounding ending, and spoil the impact.

Overall this book, this series, is worth your time, energy, and it’s worth to be talked about. So please take my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval, that you will get captured by this original, fresh, outstanding read.

Happy Reading

By: Kay L Moody
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ice Crown (The Elements of Kamdaria 1) by Kay L. Moody was a unique read that hooked me from start to finish.

Oh wow, this book was something else I tell you. It was pulling, detailed and gripping. I got sucked in right away and before I knew it, this little wonder was over. I like it when these short reads capture you like that. No detail was spared, the pacing was great, and the characters were both well developed and compelling. This book packs a wallop, and I can’t wait to dive further into this new world. As this wasn’t my first read by this author, I knew that it was going to be something, not only different, but specially unique. The author has taken a matter I very much like, and has created something fresh, heart pounding and just worth your while to read.

This book has so much, it’s perfect for almost anyone, and I’m giving this book my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval. Take a chance on this book, you will no regret it.

OF WAR AND TATERS by Ashley Chappell – Review by Emily Walsh

Of War and TatersOf War and Taters
By: Ashley Chappell
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

OF WAR AND TATERS by Ashley Chappell was a fun read that had a little bit of everything, that kept me both entertained and engaged.

Not my first read by this author, so I knew going in that I was in for a well written witty read, with intertwining elements. I was not led astray, and this book brought what it stated. Now I will say that I did find the pacing a little slow at times, especially with all the different POV’s. But overall, it wasn’t that much of a bad thing. I did love how every different element was connected somehow, and the dog, Mr. Cuddle Face, it was like this little innocent voice that popped in; made me smile, and just had me wanting to steel him away.

Overall this book is a fun quick read that will have you second guessing, scratching your head and laughing. It was the perfect little mix of fun, drama, spoof, dark humour, mystery and entertainment. This book will keep you reading, and it will have you wondering why there isn’t more like it. I do hope there is more to come from this wonderful little world that the author has created.

To end this book gets my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval.

Happy Reading.

A Divided Mind by M. Billiter – Review by Emily Walsh

A Divided MindA Divided Mind
By: M. Billiter
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars

A Divided Mind by M. Billiter was a unique read that was a completely different then I thought it would be.

I went into this book thinking it was a thriller but, it was more like a life contemporary, about metal illness, and how this family had to face that life challenge. So it was a little off putting for me that this wasn’t the thriller I was hoping for, but overall I did like this story. You can tell a lot of care and research went into making the read as emotional and realistic as possible.

I will say that, the mother was not my fave, as this book was told in dual POV, you got a few different angles. She has expansive taste, but complained about the financial stress; seemed like she didn’t have her priorities all that straight. I just couldn’t connect all that well with her. Branson on the other hand, was a well written complex character, that drew me in, and really made this story for me. I love when it was his POV, and that’s what kept me reading.

Overall this book is a surprise, and it as a whole, is quite the multi-layered tale about a families journey through the effects that mental illness has on not only the MC, but his family circle as well. On that note this book gets my high recommendation and my stamp of approval

Happy Reading.

The Season Finale (Paranormal Talent Agency Book 6) by Heather Silvio – Review by Emily Walsh

The Season Finale (Paranormal Talent Agency, #6)The Season Finale
By: Heather Silvio
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Season Finale (Paranormal Talent Agency Book 6) by Heather Silvio was a sweet, fast pace moving, paranormal romance that for me not only perfectly closed out an equally amazing series, but left room for the author to revisit if needed.

Though this book could be read as a standalone, I highly suggest reading this series in order. There is a lot you’ll miss if you start with this book, also all past characters are in this one, you will miss the impact of the final reveal.

Detailed and full of entertainment I was quickly swept up into this unique read. I like the way this was brought pretty much full circle, and how it tied up loss ends, while keeping everything new, fresh, and exciting. The MC’s, this time were okay. I’ve been on the fence about Liz, but this book made me see her in a different light. The love interest was okay. I liked his charm and the his straight forwardness towards Liz, it was different, and kind of cute.

Overall this book was the perfect addition and final. I do hope the author revisits this world one day, or builds onto it. So to end this book, this series, gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Unchained Memory (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 1) by Donna S. Frelick – Review by Emily Walsh

Unchained Memory ( Interstellar Rescue Series Book 1)Unchained Memory
By: Donna S. Frelick
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unchained Memory (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 1) by Donna S. Frelick was an compelling, science fiction story that was full of mystery, steamy smut; mixed with a multilayered plot, and you got one hooking story. That had me completely engrossed from start to finish.

I can’t tell you enough how much I fell for this story. Right out the gate, with that heart wrenching prolog, you’re pulled into this unique read. This book is packed with raw emotion, that’s both dark, light and mysterious. Both MC’s are well developed and complex. Told in dual POV, we get inside both of their heads, adding to the layers of this wonderful read. It brought a new kind of tone, and it added to the overall impact of the story.

The detail and story telling was on point, the plot was simply everything I never knew I wanted. This books was vast like space, and the author did an outstanding job of pulling you in, to the what’s if, and the darkness that maybe lurking above us. Overall I can’t stress enough how good this book is, and that you need it in your life.

So please take my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval that you will get taken, get lost, and break over this one of kind read.

Happy Reading.

Proper Impulse (Jaded Lily Book 4) by Zeia Jameson – Review by Emily Walsh

Proper ImpulseProper Impulse
By: Zeia Jameson
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Proper Impulse (Jaded Lily Book 4) by Zeia Jameson was an interesting, fun, read that had me hooked.

With every book I read from this series I just fall more and more in love with it. This one was probably my fav so far, as it has that element of polar-opposites, that have it out for one another, but can’t help fight the attraction. The writing had an easy flow, the detail was on point, and the pace was steady and swift moving.

I loved the MC’s, and the way they played off one another, their growth and their passion. It felt natural, and I just loved every minute of the romance. The plot wasn’t anything overly original, but it was fun, and I did very much enjoy it. It was nicely woven and it added something popping to the romance and the wicket dynamic of the MC’s. It’s not very often I like the MC’s over plot, so bravo to the author for that.

Overall this book is a fun quick read that will have you flipping the pages. It has a little bit of everything and it delivers what it promised. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval that you will fly through this yin yang read.

Happy Reading

17 Marigold Lane (Prudence Penderhaus Book 1) by R.M. Gilmore – Review by Emily Walsh

17 Marigold Lane17 Marigold Lane
By: R.M. Gilmore
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

17 Marigold Lane (Prudence Penderhaus Book 1) by R.M. Gilmore was an intriguing, emotional read, that had me hooked and reading into the wee hours.

Wow, this book was something I tell you. I started reading it a little later in the evening thinking, I’ll read a few chapters before I go to bed. Well it’s almost 2 in the morning, so yeah, you can say that was a reading fail on my part. I couldn’t put this book down, I kept trying, but my mind would not let it go, and sleep wouldn’t not come. So I kept flipping the pages to unravel the mystery, and I just had to know more about Cassius and Prudence.

I will say that the start was a little slow, for me, but that didn’t put me off because the writing and tone was hooking, and Cassius was such an interesting well written character that I had to know more about his situation. Research and care went into his development, and it made him such a realistic character, that I wanted to protect him just as much as Prudence. Speaking of, at first I wasn’t a fan of hers, no that’s not right. I wasn’t a fan of how she was presented. The author kept repeating at first that Pru wasn’t anything special, and all that normal YA jazz, so that threw me off. But once Pru’s true character got revealed, I was on board, and frankly, she’s probably the best YA character I think I ever read about. I’m glad the author quickly moved away from that typical cliché, and made Pru not only a relatable realistic character, but loveable and strong.

Overall this story is worth your time and energy. It’s complex, well written, well researched, compelling, original and it will get you right in the feels. So please take my super high recommendation and golden stamp of approval, that you will not be able to put this hidden gem down.

Happy Reading

Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd by Christy Nicholas – Review by Emily Walsh

Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd.Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd.
By: Christy Nicholas
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Time Tourist Outfitters, Ltd by Christy Nicholas was a unique fun read that had me hooked from start to finish

Not my first read by this author, so I knew going in that I was in for something well written, original, entertaining, and fun. I was not disappointed in the least. This book pulls you in from the start, with that witty cold open, and the taste of what these time tourists are.

I think my favourite bit of this whole story is that the MC is an older mature woman, who gives no -anything- (keeping it PG here, but you get what I’m saying lol). I loved her within seconds, quick witted and just hard as nails, I want to be this woman’s friend. This story has many elements, different times and heavy with detail. You can tell care and research went into making this as much as journey through time, as well as keeping it an engaging story for the reader. There was so much that kept you reading and kept you guessing. I loved every minute of it, and with each new layer pulled back, and the deeper you got, you almost become apart of the story yourself.

Overall this book is worth your time, energy, and it’s worth talking about. So please take my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval that, you will be captured by this tantalizing one of a kind read.

Happy Reading
