My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book knocked my socks off. I love psychological thrillers and this one is high on my list. The plotline is enthralling and kept me on the edge of my seat through the whole book. The characters are amazing. There are twists and turns throughout the pages. The attention to detail makes this book. Alicia has the perfect family or does she? You will have to read this book to find out what happens to Alicia and her perfect family.

Southland Academy for Supernatural Youth by Sandra Tentler and Brooke Tentler – Review by Erica Fish

Southland Academy for Supernatural YouthSouthland Academy for Supernatural Youth by Sandra Tentler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by Sandra Tentler and Brooke Tentler. The cover is what grabbed my attention and I wanted to read it. I am glad I decided to read this book. The plotline is a mystery story with supernatural characters. This is a fast-paced book that kept me turning the pages. The characters are cuts and some characters have recognizable supernatural parents. There are some shifters and the animals are new to me. I really like how these six different characters worked together to find the missing ring. There were some twists and turns that had me second-guessing what I was thinking who did it. I really enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it for fourth grade and up.

Apocalypse NOPE!!Apocalypse NOPE!! by Deidre Huesmann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is not my first book by this author but it has become one of my favorites. Deidre Huesmann does an amazing job with this familiar story with her own twists. Her character building is clever. This is about Ivy-Jean and her apocalypse dilemma. She is an awkward teenager, who opens a piece of mail that was sent to her neighbor. That is when all hell breaks through literally. She has started the four horsemen of the apocalypse on their tasks. If she does not help bring the world to an end, they will kill her mother. What would you do to save your mother? Will the four horsemen be sent on their mission or will they have a different agenda? I highly recommend reading this story to see what our awkward teenager chooses to do.

Myths & Legends: An Indie Love Anthology – Review by Erica Fish

Myths & LegendsMyths & Legends by Laura Greenwood
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Myths & Legends is a collection of seven stories all have some similar stories to already known myths and legends. For example, Egyptian Gods, Greek mythology, Robin Hood, and Hades can be found in different stories. I find it refreshing when I can read the same story but from a different point of view. My favorite book was Dragon’s Heart by Carrie Austin Malone. This book stood out to me because it was about Dragon Shifters. This is Geraint and Mary’s story. Mary has been dreaming about dragons all her life. Then she turned 21 and that is when her dreams became a reality. Then there is Geraint who has been waiting for his mate to come along. Will these two meet? Will there be a bond between them? I highly recommend this collection and this story. I had a hard time putting the book down because of the entertainment. So I would recommend leaving enough time to finish the book you want to read in one sitting.

The Earl and the Peahen (The Scarlet Salon Book 5) by Jean Wilde – Review by Erica Fish

The Earl and the PeahenThe Earl and the Peahen by Jean Wilde
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Earl and the Peahen is the fifth book in the Scarlet Salon Book series by Jean Wilde. This can be a stand-alone book. But if you like historical romance stories, I highly recommend the previous books as well. The historical era when this book takes place is detailed perfectly which makes seeing the story in my mind’s eye even better. The plotline is about finding a love that you were not looking for and opposites attracting to one another. One good thing about opposites attracting is the chemistry and the playful talking back and forth with each other. The characters are complex and have unique qualities with each other. If you can joke around and be yourself with someone, usually you fall for one another unexpectedly. I felt like I was transported back in time and was friends with Jane and Alexander while the relationship was budding. I highly recommend this book to all romance lovers.

She is a bit nervous because her job depends on her finding the culprits. Can Sunshine and her squad find the stolen items? Will the robber be a colleague? I highly recommend this sweet cozy story.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Shadow of Doubt Books. If you have not read the first book, Rebecca Remains, I highly recommend reading it first. This story is so thought-provoking good that I could not put it down until I was done with it completely. The characters really made the story believable. and connectable. This story is about Randy.

Randy is at a loss. His past is coming back full steam ahead and he is fighting for his innocence. Will he be successful in proving his innocence? His sister comes to assist him in the fight.
