Love's Reverie (The Stardust Duet, #2)Love’s Reverie by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in The Stardust Duet by KG Fletcher. I never hesitate to pick up her books. I will say that if you have not read the first book in the series I highly recommend you do so. The characters in the book are so alive that I can see myself being with them. Ms. Fletcher always makes her characters alive within her books. This story is a time travel romance story that encapsulates love. This is the story of Kat and Phillip’s relationship. Phillip time jumps to secure items for the love of his life. Has he been successful or will the last jump be his last jump? You will want to read this book to see if love can conquer all.

If you are looking for a fast suspenseful read, look no further, Check-In by Debra Parmley is a great suspenseful read. The details are amazing for this short story.

Twilight’s Curse (Twilight Realm Series Book 1) by K. M. Wray – Review by Erica Fish

Twilight's CurseTwilight’s Curse by K.M. Wray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Twilight’s Cure is a YA-young adult Fantasy book. I love the fact that this is a story about elves, dragons, magic, action, and drama. It is refreshing reading a book that had something other than vampires in the YA department. K. M. Wray is a newer author and so far I am loving her world-building story. It has captured my attention from the first paragraph to the final word of the book. The characters are outstanding and I love the adventure I went on with them. This is a story about Zoe and Nix. Zoe is an elf with her magic broken. Nix is the elf that is trying to help Zoe but she needs to stop throwing daggers at him and join in the fight for peace. Will Nix get Zoe to help him save his kingdom? Will Zoe get her magic back and quit throwing daggers at Nix? I highly recommend this book to see for yourself how amazing Zoe and Nix’s story is thought out.

A Spell of Rowans by Byrd Nash – Review by Erica Fish

A Spell of RowansA Spell of Rowans by Byrd Nash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Spell of Rowans is a story that may have some triggers and be difficult to read. This is a story of drama, crime, and mystery. It does have some triggers that relate to domestic abuse, domestic violence, and mental abuse. I feel knowing that there are triggers will be helpful to know before starting reading this book, as it may be a difficult subject matter for some. The storyline moves quickly which had me turning pages to see what was coming next. The characters are relatable. It is a story that focuses on a family unit. It shows me the family dynamics between siblings which brings the drama to the forefront of the characters. If you like mystery and crime books, then this story is for you. This book is also full of emotions so make sure you have a box of Kleenex nearby.

The Elements of the Crown (The Elements of Kamdaria, #1)The Elements of the Crown by Kay L. Moody
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a great start to a series. This is not my first book and it definitely will not be my last book by Kay L. Moody. She grabbed me from the first sentence and kept my attention until the very last sentence of the book. The story is a simple one but it is so detailed that I saw everything in my mind’s eye. The story takes an adventure of a student, Tailse, who wants to be the top in her class. She is on her way until he comes along and they are paired together. She knows there is a war coming she is hoping that she has enough power to meet the danger coming at her. All she wants to do is escape from the emperor. Will she be able to escape?

Ashes of Aldyr (The Obscured Throne Trilogy Book 1) by Russell Archey – Review by Erica Fish

Ashes of Aldyr (The Obscured Thorne Trilogy Book 1)Ashes of Aldyr by Russell Archey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mr. Russell Archey is a new author to my growing list of favorite authors. This book is a fantasy book but it is on the dark side of fantasy. The attention to detail really makes this book stand out for me. It has all types of characters in the story. There are magical trees, elf-kind, humans, and some nasty god-like characters. I felt like I was one of the characters in the book. The adventure that I went on was one of dark arts. It held my attention with each passing page. The storyline has many levels throughout the book but Mr. Archey does an amazing job of keeping it all straight for me.I highly recommend reading this book as it is an amazing journey. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

The Girl and The Demon (The Girl and The Raven, #3)The Girl and The Demon by Pauline Gruber
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Girl and the Demon is the third book in The Gild and that Raven book by Pauline Gruber. I highly suggest reading books one and two because it will enhance the pleasure of this book. This is a YA paranormal/fantasy story. It is filled with witches, demons, gargoyles, magic, challenges, and good vs. evil. The storyline is engaging. I kept turning the pages to see what was coming next in the story. The characters kept my attention and mystified my senses. This story is about Lucy and her friends. Lucy has a lot to think about with her friends, boyfriend, and an evil demon coming after her. Will Lucy be able to keep everyone safe or will she meet her match? I highly recommend this book and all the books in the series. I can only hope that there is more to come.

Shadows of Doubt (A Crawford Mystery) by Merissa Racine – Review by Erica Fish

Shadows of Doubt (A Crawford Mystery)Shadows of Doubt by Merissa Racine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shadows of Doubt is the second book of A Crawford Mystery by Merissa Racine. I highly suggest you read book one to be introduced to the main character of the book. The plotline is one of the best crime/thriller books I have read in a long time. The story kept me turning the pages faster and faster because I needed to see what was on the next page. The plotline kept me grounded because I did not want to miss a clue as to what was going to happen. The characters are off the charts. This is Lauren’s story, She has gotten herself in the middle of a murder mystery. Lauren needs money and she goes to her ex-husband, a new judge, for a job as his court reporter. Lauren is drawn to the case that is before her husband. She just cannot seem to stay out of trouble. She starts investigating and low and beholds she finds secrets the kind that she would have liked to keep buried. Will Lauren figure out the true identity of the murder or will there be a secret shared that cannot be unshared? I highly recommend this book to see how the story unfolds in your mind’s eye.

Kingdom of Embers (Kingdom Journals Book 1) by Tricia Copeland – Review by Erica Fish

Kingdom of Embers (Kingdom Journals #1)Kingdom of Embers by Tricia Copeland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an amazing start to a paranormal fantasy story! It is full of all of the wonders of magic, vampires, and witches not to forget danger, adventure, and suspense. One thing I love about Tricia Copeland’s story is the attention to detail in all her books. This book is about Alena. She is a vampire-witch hybrid whose vampire mother has sworn into secrecy. There are rules but will she ignore the rules when a handsome childhood imaginary friend comes into her life. Now, will the handsome imaginary friend be surprised by his beautiful pretend friend? The two young imaginary friends figure out how they are together at that moment in time. I highly recommend this book to see what happens to the two imaginary friends. I cannot wait to see what is coming next in the series.

Death under Palm Trees (A Jack and Frances mystery Book 4) by Carmen Radtke – Review by Erica Fish

Death under Palm TreesDeath under Palm Trees by Carmen Radtke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Who doesn’t like a cozy mystery to curl up to? I am not new to the genre but I am new to the author. This book and its time frame piqued my interest. Setting in the 1930’s it is full of danger, theft, and murder. Ms. Radtke did a wonderful job writing in this time period. I felt that I was right there with the characters in my mind’s eye. Jack, Frances, Uncle Sal, and Aunt Mildred take us to the party where unbeknown to them there are some missing documents. They need to find the answer to where the missing documents went before it goes public. I highly recommend this book. It is a fast read, but make sure you leave enough time because you are not going to want to put it down.
