A Christmas Wish (A Manhatten Dream Series) by Engy Neville – Review by Erica Fish

A Christmas WishA Christmas Wish by Engy Neville
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Engy Neville is a new author to me and I could not have picked a better story than A Christmas Wish. Neville has written characters like they could really be the people in my town. The story line is a great make me feel good story. She keeps it moving and shows that wishes just may come true. I have always wished upon the first star I see every night. This story just gave me more reasons to wish upon a star and to remember that I can make my own little magic myself if I just believe.

Bad Things Happen: Gripping Psychological Suspense (Ashes to Ashes Book 1) by Rowena Holloway – Review by Erica Fish

Bad Things Happen (Ashes to Ashes, #1)Bad Things Happen by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bad Things Happen by Rowena Holloway is what the title says “A Gripping Psychological Suspense” story. Rowena Holloway does an amazing job keeping the mystery going through out the story. This story is a dark thriller with suspense, secrets, truth, twists, and turns. Holloway makes sure that you have all the information you need to understand the story fully. There are times when I just wanted to close my eyes and get lost into my “happy world” because I was fearful for what was coming. Then BAM!!!! A twisty turn comes and makes me reread what I had just read because I missed the turn to her twist. I would allow time to read this book in one sitting as it moves at a good pace, and for me at least, I wanted to finish to see how everything came together.

Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagles MC Series Book 2) by T. Birmingham – Review by Erica Fish

Written in the Stars (Fallen Eagles MC Book 2)Written in the Stars by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

T. Birmingham did it again. I love Written in the Stars. That does not mean I do not love A Terrible Beauty because I do. I just love Winter and Eagle characters. Again this is a sensitive subject matter and there is still the warning for older teens and adults only. This story has suspense, military romance, and even some thriller mixed in. This installment is about Winter and Eagle. Eagle is the president of the Fallen Eagles and Winter runs the Salon in town. There is a mystery that has come knocking on the door of the town. Will everyone come together to protect each other or will there be a fall out and no one is safe? I hope you enjoy this story and remember to keep tissues close by.

A Terrible Beauty (Fallen Eagles MC Series Book 1) by T. Birmingham – Review by Erica Fish

A Terrible Beauty (Fallen Eagles MC Book 1)A Terrible Beauty by T. Birmingham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

T. Birmingham took sensitive subject matters and created a wonderful book series, Fallen Eagles MC Series. Book 1 is A Terrible Beauty which is a novella and a great opening to say the least. The way Birmingham brought the characters to life on the page is outstanding. I felt like I was there watching everything transpire. I will have to say that there are some adult subject matters and I would recommend this story to be for older teens (16 & 17) and adults. This story is a suspense and military romance genre. Birmingham sent me on a roller coaster ride with my emotions and found it difficult at some points within the story. When I found that happening I had to reassure myself it was a fiction book. This story is about Kit and Lee and everything around them. I hope you enjoy this story as well as I have and remember keep tissues by you while reading.

Shadow’s Keep: A Novel by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Erica Fish

Shadow's Keep: A NovelShadow’s Keep: A Novel by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story had me guessing all the way through until the end. Meghan O’Flynn has become one of my favorite authors. She has a way of keeping the hints very subtle and the story moving ahead. If you are not careful you will miss some important parts. There was a couple of sections when I was turning the page and I had to go back and reread the sentence or sentences. The characters are fully developed. This is a very dark twisted novel. I will admit that I was scared out of my mind at times. That is what I love about this author. I can be totally scared thinking that this is happening in the woods behind my house when I know that this is a fictitious story. I hope that you enjoy this book as much as I did.

Killer Lawyer (Jake Wolfe Book 3) by Mark Nolan – Review by Erica Fish

Killer LawyerKiller Lawyer by Mark Nolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In this installment, Killer Lawyer Mark Nolan has hit it out of the park again. This is the third book and it has just as much action, mystery, suspense, drama, and humor as the first two books. I love the characters that Mark Nolan writes about Jake and Cody. Now one would think that Jack and Cody are male characters, you would be half right Jake is a man and Cody is his ex-military dog that goes with him everywhere. That is what I love about the Jack Wolfe stories the fact that there is a human male character, Jake as a main character and a male dog character, Cody as the other main character. I find myself yelling at the kindle as I was reading this story. There was something always coming around the corner. This whole series has been amazing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Nite Fire: Flash Point by C.L. Schneider – Review by Erica Fish

Flash Point (Nite Fire, #1)Flash Point by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nite Fire: Flash Point is the first book in the two part book Nite Fire by C. L. Schneider. This book is a shifter book which means it has fantasy, mystery, magic, dragons, and of course shifters. This story took me on a wild roller coaster ride. There isn’t a dull moment in the story. The characters are developed and not only are the primary characters awesome in the story so are the secondary. I love how Schneider interwove the “human” world with in the story. Dahlia Nite is a shifter but she is also an assassin. There is an execution warrant out for her and that is how she ends up in the “human” world. It is there were she uses her specialty to help people. Will Dahlia be found? Will she be able to help those around her? Read this story to find out. You may want to have a good amount of time to read because you will want to finish the book in one sitting.

The Lies We Tell by Brittany Butler – Review by Erica Fish

The Lies We TellThe Lies We Tell by Brittany Butler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!” (Sir Walter Scott, 1809).

The Lies We Tell by Brittany Butler is my first encounter with this author. I will say that I will read other books by her. She has an imagination that allows her to go between different time frames. Her characters are fully developed, and the story is told by the POV of Natalie. There will be some time jumps from Natalie’s past and her present. Sometimes it took me by surprise, and I had to reread to make sure I knew where I was in the story. One thing I thought was an interesting character trait of Natalie is that she is a self-proclaimed liar. I am not sure that I could believe in anything she ever said. This story takes you on a roller coaster ride and I never knew if it was for what was really going on or if it was made of lie from Natalie.This is a quick read novel and I recommend it for an interesting “get your mind off of things” read. I cannot wait to see other books from Brittany Butler.

Surviving the Storm (Surviving Series Book 2)Surviving the Storm by Virginia Wine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surviving the Storm by Virginia Win is the second book in the Surviving Series. Virginia Win did not disappoint in this story. She has a great depth of knowledge that allows her to put her emotions into her characters and stories. This is a contemporary romance story with mystery, suspense, lies, secrets and family dynamics all roll up into one book. The story of a guy raised on one side of the tracks falls for a girl on the other side of the tracks could sum it up, however it is much more than that statement.
