The Mermaid and the Water Magnifying Glass (Mermaid Science, #3)The Mermaid and the Water Magnifying Glass by Lois Wickstrom
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mermaid and the Water Magnifying Glass is a part of the Mermaid Science Series by Lois Wickstrom. This is the perfect story to get young kids to get interested in science. The book is good for ages 4-8. The story takes the children through the science process. They are on an adventure to make a magnifying glass out of drops of water. This will pique the interest of girls using Trezzie the mermaid. The characters are unique just like other children. I love the fantasy concept to teach the concept of science to young children. I recommend this story and series for young children.

Love in the Roses (Love Through the Ages Book 1) by TL Clark – Review by Erica Fish

Love in the RosesLove in the Roses by T.L. Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Love in the Roses is a historical romance by TL Clark. This book is set in medieval times. Ms. Clark did an amazing job with attention to detail. In this book, she had drama, politics, arranged marriage, and cultural aspects of medieval times. The characters are fully developed and complicated. It was an awesome idea to have a glossary at the end of the book. This assisted me with a few of the concepts a few times. Will the arrange marriage and the culture that goes along with that? I highly recommend this book to find out how everything ends up. Make sure you have time to read the entire book in one sitting.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Nurse Morgan series by Kate Macinnis. This book is a spooky romance. It has all the makings of a great book. It has ghosts, drama, mystery, and lots of laughs. The characters are fully developed and complex to the core. There were moments of emotions that went on a roller coaster ride. There were high moments as well as low moments. The story moves quickly. It does not stand still for one moment. Morgan is an RN who works in the Emergency Department. She can see ghosts who get her in trouble a wee bit. She is dating a handsome MD and that is about to get spicy, She is off on another mystery. I highly recommend this book. Nurse Morgan is an amazing character and I cannot wait to see what is going to happen next.

Caring for Kingsley, Believing in a Better Way When Canine Cancer Comes Crashing Into Your World by Alli Eldridge – Review by Erica Fish

Caring for Kingsley, Believing in a Better Way When Canine Cancer Comes Crashing Into Your WorldCaring for Kingsley, Believing in a Better Way When Canine Cancer Comes Crashing Into Your World by Alli Eldridge
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Caring for Kingsley is an emotional read. When I read the description of the book I knew I needed to read it. I have lost fur babies in the past but just recently I lost one to cancer. While reading this book, I cried because I could feel everything Alli Eldridge was saying. The feelings are rawer because of the fact we cannot speak to dogs and cannot read their minds. Then the question of life and the quality that the animal is living. I really felt Kingsley’s story was true to the emotions and fears of any fur baby mom. I highly recommend this book. There is one small thing make sure you have kleenex close by because you are going to need it throughout the book. Thank you Alli Eldridge for putting feelings into words so wonderfully.

Pilot Who Knows the Waters (Lord Hani, #6)Pilot Who Knows the Waters by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the last installment of The Lord Hani Mysteries by N. L. Holmes. This series has been building from book 1 until this book. Hani was introduced in book 1. This installment is set in Ancient Egypt and Hani found himself navigating through politics, society, and royal protocols. In this book, there are historical details, agendas, plots, and emotions. The characters are fully developed and engaging. I loved each of Hani’s mysteries. I highly recommend this book and series, but be warned you may not be able to put it done until you have completed the book.

The Lie That Binds by Amy Argent – Review by Erica Fish

The Lie That BindsThe Lie That Binds by Amy Argent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Lie That Binds is a book that could have really happened in the “real world”. The attention to detail is what makes this book interesting. The ability of this author to present her work in such a real way is a treat. It has been a long time since I have read a book that I felt like I was really in the book with the characters. Speaking of the characters, they are fully developed and complicated. This story is told from Nathan’s perspective. He is a “popular boy”. He does not like to close to anyone because they will see the truth about him. Holly does just that. What happens because she does know the truth? I highly recommend this book to find out what happens to Nathan and Holly.
