The Letter Carrier by L.C. Lewis
5 stars

Beautifully written, The Letter Carrier follows Michelle Naget and her family during WWII, during the Nazi invasion. For four years, the Nagets were forced into servitude by the Nazis by housing and caring for the commandants that passed through their little town of Braquis. Only through faith and determination will the Nagets make it through. Based on a true story, The Letter Carrier sheds light on another country impacted by the Nazis.
Gripping and eye-opening, The Letter Carrier and all its characters are relatable. Every feeling the character feels is detailed in such a way that the reader feels along with them. I suggest taking your time reading The Letter Carrier to fully absorb all the plights, feelings, and events. There was not a single part I did not like.
Overall, The Letter Carrier is a must read. I highly suggest it to anyone looking for an enthralling read from the eyes of someone who lived through the terror.

I loved this book! It reminded me a lot of The Nightingale and exposed me to more knowledge of what life was like in France during WWII. I like that this viewpoint was from a young girl and everything was from her perspective. Many of us do not realize the dangers the conquered people endured during that time. Michelle, the main character, shared her story through the eyes of someone very young and not fully aware of what was going on (in the beginning). She was forced to grow up quickly and take on a lot of responsibility in a very dangerous time. I also like how we get little glimpses of young crushes and the turmoil a young girl would go through when the person you have a crush on is in places unknown. I did not realize until the end that this was based on a real woman and her family, which makes it all the more precious to be part of.

When I started reading this book I didn’t realise it was based on a true story so did not expect the depth and the emotion I found. This book completely took me by surprise in the best possible way. I was completely captivated by the story and this family that you are reading about. I felt completely connected to the characters and felt like the author really reflected what they must have gone through. The emotions I felt when reading this book where immense but so fitting.
The writing style worked perfectly for this book. The author did an amazing job at portraying the time and the journey the family must have gone through. And even though it is not something you can truly imagine, they really made it feel like you were there with them. This is an incredible story, and one that I cannot recommend highly enough.

Battles and adventure crisscross the Viking Age! From monumental sea clashes to beleaguered mountain strongholds to war with the tribes of Eire, circumstance drives the scattered Agneson clan across the known world. And beyond the lands of Midgard, mythic hidden folk challenge our forerunner hero. The award-winning Forerunner Series epic continues….

Fleeing an arranged marriage, Kara escapes across the narrow sea to follow her warrior dreams. Escaping slavery, Cub joins Rollo’s horde in Britany, while his outlawed brother Sorven fights for survival in the Welsh mountains. Uncle Karl and his warriors rally to Harald Tanglehair in his ambition to unify the wild kingdoms of the North Way, and young Thorfinn is left behind, safe and secure in a tiny fishing village… or is he?

Kara gains her place in king of Dublinn’s ranks to prove her mettle, but being a warrior is not what she expected, and what of these new feelings she finds for her closest companion? Will Karl and his crew perish in the great battle of Hafrsfjord? And how will an unprepared Thorfinn survive kidnapping by an 8-armed giant, leaving behind worried friends and a very angry dragon?

Don’t miss this 5-star epic fantasy critics are calling “whimsical and gritty,” with “fabulous, engaging characters.” If you enjoy the history of The Last Kingdom and Nordic myths and legends, the Forerunner Series is a grand tale not to be missed!

My Darling Rogue (A Wicked Rogues Romance Book 1) by April Moran
Genre – Historical Romance
Cover Designer – Amanda Walker

Falling in love with a rogue is risky…

Celia Buchanan lives her life in a social whirl. And she’s hiding a secret that could ruin her. She needs a suitable husband who is either blissfully unaware of the devastating truth or adores her so much it won’t matter. She doubts such a man exists until she discovers Gabriel Rose watches her from the shadows. He may be a rogue, but his kisses set Celia on fire and the things he whispers in her ear are utterly scandalous.

Gabriel Rose straddles the border between nobility and London’s murky shadows. He is content there—until he discovers an obsession with the one woman he can never claim as his. But when Celia grants him a kiss in the darkness, her fate is sealed. Once Gabriel tastes her sweetness, he cannot let her go. What must he do to keep her forever?

Destiny is a fickle creature. A bastard is abruptly elevated to the rank of marquess, and a lady is caught in a compromising situation. A hasty marriage may not erase dark secrets and society’s prejudices but will a dangerous threat from the past force these star-crossed lovers to realize they belong together?

Enemies of Doves by Shanessa Gluhm – Review by Kristine Solano-Witucky

So I’m usually very picky about what books I read. I’m more of a romance reader with the occasional mystery, thriller or science fiction. When I saw this book and read the synopsis I was intrigued. I couldn’t put it down. It has mystery, talks about PTSD, Abuse and Addiction. This book was so good I couldn’t put it down until I was finished. I hope there will be more.

From word one, I was stuck into this story, needing to know everything! Joel’s mental state and the protectiveness he felt from the very beginning to the other side of the coin in the more recent years of the story drew me in. I wanted to know the truth of what happened in 1932 and what happened to lead Joel to where he was in 1991 when Garrison first comes to him chasing answers. The alternating points of view and differing points in time that the story is told are fascinating, and it’s such an amazing way to share this story. If you enjoy mysteries with an emphasis on family secrets and the relationships those same secrets can change through existence, this is definitely the read for you!

This may be my favorite read of the year so far! What a well-written, researched, and gripping story!

The author developed a page-turner with their ability to create tension and the need to know what happens next in this mystery that spans across time. The characters are developed well throughout the entirety of the story and the reader finds themself rooting for and relating to them. The author also has a unique way of creating setting and bringing the reader inside the story and feel like you are really there. The details really bring this story to life.

The author tackles many challenging subjects within the context of the story and does so very well and with integrity.

Ultimately, I look forward to more by this author and encourage you to pick this one up for sure!
