This series gets better with every story. This is not my first book and it will not be my last book. This book is a fast pace adventure. There are twists and turns around every page turned. It is well written and the plotline is an adventure. Karina finds herself going to Mexico to drop off a package. It was supposed to be a vacation, but it turns into chaos. Karina always has mishaps with the plans she lays down. This book brings in some Egyptian history, which makes this package even more interesting.

John the Baptist: As His Soul Remembers by Stuart Ledwith – Review by Erica Fish

John the Baptist: As His Soul RemembersJohn the Baptist: As His Soul Remembers by Stuart P. Ledwith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by Stuart Ledwith. The fact he wrote about John the Baptist is interesting. The philosopher Edouards spreads the story of John the Baptist and the message. It is a book that shares insight to the man of John the Baptist. It is not strictly a religious book but one that brings his character to the light. Can a man who paves the way for the Messiah spread more than the prophetic teachings? What was John the Baptist’s life message? I highly recommend this story to see what Stuart Ledwith’s story is about John the Baptist.

A Dead Man SpeaksA Dead Man Speaks by Lisa Jones Johnson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was an awesome story. I love ghost stories, especially when there is a mystery around it. Lisa Jones Gentry did a great job writing this story. For me at least, there was no confusion about what was happening. The characters are fully developed and personable. The plot of the story is intriguing. Clive, who was well todo, got shot and killed. That is when the story begins. Clive was an investment banker. He wants to find his killer. That is when it becomes interesting. Clive teams up with Detective Bob to help solve a murder. There are feelings and obstacles that Clive needs to get done to be able to move on. I highly recommend this book to see what exactly happens to Clive and Detective Bob.

The Crocodile Makes No Sound (The Lord Hani Mysteries Book 2) by N.L. Holmes – Review by Erica Fish

The Crocodile Makes No Sound (Lord Hani Mysteries #2)The Crocodile Makes No Sound by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second story in the Lord Hani Mysteries by N.L. Holmes. The story has historical fiction, mysteries, and cozy mysteries. I found myself turning the pages quicker than the previous one. The story had some elements for only a certain character. This was well written so that I did not get confused but it enhanced the storylines. The characters were fully developed and true to the time period for what it was written in. The attention to detail in not only the storyline but in the character details as well. If you love history and mysteries, you will enjoy this story as well. I highly recommend reading the first book as well to get the full enjoyment of the Lord Hani series.

Distant Heart SoundsDistant Heart Sounds by Kate MacInnis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you are looking to read a fun exciting short read, look no further this book is for you. In everything that is going on around us in the world, we need to find something to get lost in for a while. The story is a simple plot line. What makes this story great is the characters. The characters are adorable. Morgan is a nurse who does not believe in paranormal anything until she had a near-death experience. That opened her eyes to a lot of things. While she was skeptical at the beginning, she finally learns that she needs to be open to different things. She realizes that she in fact has feelings for a special doctor. This book has a little bit of everything, romance, humor, and mystery. I highly recommend this story as it will be a short fast read.

HIGH FLYER (Verdant String) by Michelle Diener – Review by Erica Fish

High Flyer (Verdant String, #4)High Flyer by Michelle Diener
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a fast paced science fiction story. I was not familiar with Michelle Diener. Her imagery painted a beautiful picture in my mind’s eye. The story is full of action and adventure. The characters are engaging and full of zeal. There is not a dull moment with constant moving between scenes that is happening. The content is sci-fi, action, adventure, fantasy, and romance. Hana flys the head-of-planet around and is a challenge that she loves. Iver does not think that he did not gain the role of head-of-planet. He is up to the challenge of making the tech work with the magnetic fields on Faldien. Iver has his eyes wet on Hana but does Hana feel the same way? There is trouble coming for Iver. Will the trouble be too great for him? Will Hana help him with the danger? Can she keep running with Iver to keep them safe?

Rescued by Valan (The Pirates of Barra: Highland Raiders) by Jennifer Siddoway – Review by Erica Fish

Rescued by Valan (The Pirates of Barra: Highland Raiders, #2)Rescued by Valan by Jennifer Siddoway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first historical pirate romance story. I would have to say that this story grabbed me from the first page until the last. The story’s foundation is solid which makes it believable. The characters are complex and fully developed. I love the idea that a pirate learns to love more than the sea air and the treasure they find/loot/steal. Valen is a new captain of a pirate ship. He thought that he would never have romance as his life is on the seas. That all halted when he found Lady Bridget. He has fallen for her but there is one problem, she is betrothed to another man. There are some tough decisions that Lady Bridget needs to make and Valen needs to live with the decisions that she makes. Will the high seas call to Lady Bridget? Can Valen be a new captain and respect the decisions that are made? Will he fight for the woman he falls for? I highly recommend reading this story to find out these answers and so much more.
