My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vanessa and Grey have made the clocktower a home. However not everyone is happy about that. Grey’s mother has summoned Vanessa and has sent her on a mission to steal a sample of water from the waterfall and Fox Towers. Steph has also locked the Betwix so that Grey can not search out Vanessa and stop her. So she is left with her chameleon moth PK and Aroz as well as a little help from Raef. However things do not fo as plan and Aroz kidnaps her after she has obtained the sample and has hidden her in his Upperworld Palace. That is where Vanessa meets who she thinks is Aroz’s twin Beau or Bow. She will eventually see what her true destiny is along with all 3 of her men, Raef, Grey and the new and improved Aroz. Can’t wait for book 4. Hazel Storm has done it again and kept me on the edge of my seat.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book two of this series and I have been waiting for this story to emerge! I would recommend reading book one also to help with the backdrop to the story ahead.
Donovan (the 300 year old lawyer) and Shirley (Donovan’s Judge lady that he ‘turned’) are on the run from the Vampire Coalition.
This is such a great series to read if you want a new take on vampire story!

Something Lost by Bernadette Marie – Review by Char Wahtomy-Alba

Something LostSomething Lost by Bernadette Marie
My Review: 5 out of 5 stars

Craig Turner and Rachel Diaz have come together again when Craig returns to help bury her father and his beloved coach. They had an intense romance in high school and thought they would be together for the long haul. With Rachel being a few years younger than Craig, she was left heartbroken when he graduated and went off to college. Maybe her father was being an overprotective father, but Coach Diaz forbade them from seeing one another and made them promise to keep their distance. The attraction and feelings couldn’t be ignored though. Now 10 years has passed and those intense feelings are coming back to life. They had kept their promise to Coach while he was alive and they are trying their hardest to keep that promise now that he is gone. Will they be able to build a friendship or will they cross that line and become something more?

I love second chance romances! These two were great together and I’m glad I picked up this book. Not only was this a second chance at romance, but it was a renewing of old friendships that was nice to read about. When we get busy living life we can tend to lose touch with those we were close with during our school days. Sparking up those old friendships and being able to pick up where you left off no matter how much time has passed is amazing.

The deep emotional connection that this story touches on would be great for any YA read. And have the conversations that come up.
High school and home life can get the best of any teen. When you throw in all the drama and heartache that comes with both! Most teens dwell on the bad things and take all the things said to heart.
This story shows it is ok to make mistakes. But learning to trust your own heart in the process.
This story is great for the younger kids to show them it is going to be ok in the end.

Runaway to the Outback (Welcome to Bunya Junction, Book 2) by Nicole Flockton – Review by Stephanie Colley

Runaway to the Outback (Welcome to Bunya Junction, #2)Runaway to the Outback by Nicole Flockton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Right off the catwalk comes a model (Pandora Sebastian) that wants to take a break from all the flashing lights and runways. Finding relaxation in the small town of Bunya Junction.
This model didn’t know she could find what she wasn’t looking for here in a small town pub. Her eyes set on the owner which is none other than Jonas Carruthers (book one Sindy’s brother).
Can this model and pub owner make this work for them?
This little series is turning into a fantastic read. Book three where are you?! Because we are ready!

As she is preparing to bid on this relic, she is in her element and cannot wait to finally have this in her possession, despite the fact that the auction was a last minute affair and the listing were not posted beforehand like they usually are, however, soon she is outbid by a man with a gravelly voice whom she has never seen before and who disappears immediately after he has won the prize. A couple of weeks later on and she is at her office at the museum where her best friend is telling her to snap out of the mood she has been in since this stranger waltzed into her life and took something she wanted right out from under her feet, so that when they go for a meal and a few drinks later on, she enjoys herself until she falls asleep in the taxi home.

Vulture is a brother in the Order of the Condor and a Pureblood Vampyr, he is a ghost with only a code name to identify him by and he is the most dangerous predator out there by miles, so when he is given a contract to retrieve a relic and a museum curator, he thinks no more of it until they collide at the auction. Vulture is dangerously captivated by her angelic looks and fierce personality, but the information he has to retrieve from her is not as forthcoming as he had hoped. Meanwhile, Danielle is coming to terms with the huge adjustment she will need to make to being in a cage and having to spill her darkest secrets to the man who she can’t deny she is attracted to, but as her containment continues, she realises that she will not be able to hide one of her secrets, but that she must hide the other in order to survive.

As Vulture tries to fulfil his contract and realises that something is amiss and when a last minute change of plans tests his patience to the limits, he realises just how much Danielle means to him and what he could lose if something happens to her, but will they be able to keep each other safe so they can explore the connection neither of them can deny, or will the worst come to the worst and their bond be broken? This is a dark paranormal romance with danger round every corner as fated mates struggle to stay by the others side as they solve a mystery eons old together, this fast paced and entertaining tale will keep you on your toes right up until the end.

Family Secrets by Shawn McGuire – Review by Char Wahtomy-Alba

Jayne O’Shea is back in Whispering Pines after 16 long years. She was deemed the one in her family to pack up her grandparents home after her grandmother passes. She thinks it will be a quick trip lasting no more than a few days, but that l goes out the window when she discovers that the home has been vandalized. She is also in for a treat and will need to put her detective hat on to do some investigating when her dog finds a corpse on the family property. Who was this girl and who would want to harm her? The local Sherriff doesn’t want her snooping around, but he doesn’t seem at all interested in finding the culprit. Is he covering for someone or in the worst case himself?

This was a captivating book and kept me hooked. The character building and development of the story was great. I can’t say that I am a huge fan of books that end on a cliffhanger, but I am invested in finding out who is behind the murder and any other mysteries Jayne may uncover.

Anne Fremont is back in this new gardening tale, where she is giving a talk to the specialist interest group of the local gardening club where she will be talking about how to grow a good forest with a mix of flowers, fruit, vegetables and herbs on one place with little to no tending needed. She is happy to be there and has been looking for a gardening group to join and this one seems right up her street. The next day she has agreed to go and see the president of the club and discuss the designs she has in mind for her garden, so she gets ready for the day and sets off over in her car.

When she arrives, she knocks on the door, however, when she doesn’t get an answer after the third try, she decides to go and look in a window to see if they are home, however, when she sees the owner is unable to answer the door, she rushes in only to find that she is dead. Anne phones the authorities and reports what has happened and to all intensive purposes it looks like an accident, but the more she thinks about it, the more something doesn’t ring true for Anne.

She decides to ask around about what happened that morning and how people feel about it, but the more questions she asks, the more secrets are uncovered leading to more possible suspects. There are rumours and accusations flying of extra marital affairs and the possibility that someone has silenced the woman who has died, but will Anne be able to discover the culprits identity before she is the next victim? This is a lovely cozy mystery where secrets and ulterior motives abound, all while gardens are being created and tended to by the close knit gardening group.
