Oh my gosh this was so good. It’s full of that feel-good, Happily-ever-after serendipity kind of romance that I absolutely love! A sun so bright is a quick read but is full of details. I loved every character and was sad when the story ended. Solid work. 4 stars.
I give Dagda’s Daughter: Raven and Hummingbird Book 2 by Nikki Broadwell, 4 stars.
I really enjoy paranormal books about gods and goddesses and I was looking forward to what this book had to offer. It was so, so good. Katel is a wonderful main character. She has forgotten who and what she is, yet she still persists. There are other characters in here who are just as good. There is so much depth to all of the characters. I was thrown right into these worlds and was right there beside each character, rooting either for or against them. Some seem bad, but are really just misunderstood. While there is definitely a story and different worlds, this book is really all about the characters in the book and the author does a great job of focusing on them and pulling into their worlds.
If you are a fan or fiction about gods and goddesses, this book is definitely for you.

Second Chance by Jane Suen a five-star read that will bring flowers to your life. This is the third and concluding novel in the Flowers in December Trilogy, they could maybe be read as stand-alone, but I have read them as a series and so enjoyed them that way, as this is like the cake topper, its so lovely on its own, but as a whole it just brings the whole thing up. The emotions you will see in this story are so strong that they are palpable, you can almost taste the emotion. This is a compelling story and shows us what a truly amazing writer Jane Suen is.

Lillie by Mya O’Malley a thrilling four-star read. This is number three in the Maggie Trilogy and follows on from Maggie and Naomi so I would strongly recommend you read them in order to get the most out of the story. The flow is strong between all of the stories and the author does an impressive job of keeping it all together, I am assuming they either have very comprehensive notes or an amazing memory as the details have been kept strong and don’t let the story down at all. Naomi is a great character and one that will surprise you with her story, this is a great trilogy, but it does let itself down a tiny bit in places. But that is just my opinion and I would still recommend you check the series out, as I have had some great enjoyment out of this.

Journeys Through SpaceTime by James Talisman a journey of a five-star read. This is number one in the Journeys Through series and shows great promise for the series. The fact that this is a debut novel shows in one or two tiny parts, but honestly, I could not believe it. I have been known to get into many a debate about the multiverse theory and usually avoid stories about it as they all follow the same type and we just get the one line, but I am glad I took the chance on this one as it had a great fresh perspective and made me start a whole debate about ideas from this story. Normally I cannot do that as I read a lot of romance and science nerds do not enjoy debating that, but this was great we started on one point and I brought in so many more. Much like the story it was deep and complex, and I found myself arguing over people just to get my point across, I explained it in different ways as the characters were so complex, they gave you strength from reading them. After we had our discussion we sat and talked and they all asked what book I had read as it must have been good to get me so impassioned, I explained that it was one I took a chance on and I hope many more people will. I did try to get them to give it a go, but they admitted that between the four of them they read one book last year last year. Hears hoping next year they raise the total to include this one.

Less You Know: gripping suspense (Ashes to Ashes Book 2) By Rowena Holloway. Once again I’m taken on quite the roller coaster ride with a story that kept me guessing. The author knows how to keep the readers completely entranced in the story. The attention to all details is amazing. The characters are complex and relatable and you truly feel like you’re on this journey with them. I got completely caught up and couldn’t put it down until the end. It’s well written and paced nicely never feeling rushed or lacking. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I’m giving this book a five star review and can’t wait to read more from this author.
Shattered is the first book in the Torzial Affair series by author Via Mari. The Torzial series is a spin-off of the Prestian series by Ms. Mari and while it can be read as a standalone, I have to admit that I felt like I was tossed into the middle of a scene since I did not read the first series. This book follows Jenny Torzial, the owner of a successful consulting firm as she navigates her life following a devastating personal experience. Jenny meets Brian at her best friend’s wedding and feels a deep attraction to the mysterious stranger. Circumstances beyond their control continue to throw the two together and sinister characters want nothing more than to hurt Jenny but Jenny’s new love interest wants nothing more than to protect her.
There is so much that goes on in this story that at times it got confusing (I need to read the Prestial series) but as I continued reading, I got a better understanding of what had happened to the characters in the previous series. I liked Jenny and Brian together and I especially liked the way the author didn’t write Jenny’s character as being weak or whiny. Jenny was dealing with a lot yet still managed to have a backbone, these are my favorite type of characters and I will be reading the next book just to see how Jenny grows.
This series has taken me by surprise. From the synopsis pieces immediately resonated. But still I was unsure if I would connect to the story. My doubts were immediately erased as soon as I read the first page. Dumond has created a world in this series, and maintained in this second installment, whereby the reader immediately dives headfirst into the plot and connects unabashedly to our main character. Masterfully written, this book stands on its own well but is best appreciated to the full when read as part of the series and in series order. Dumond has a unique voice and writing style that is easily followed but not lacking in rich flavor. Wonderfully done. I cannot wait to immerse myself in these pages again.

Less You Know: gripping suspense is the second book in the Ashes to Ashes serie by Rowena Holloway. This book can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend you read them in order you definitely won’t be disappointed. This book is full of mystery, action and suspense, it will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end. This book features Charlotte Ashe, an investigative reporter. The action was fast paced, the twists and turns really had me guessing what was going to happen next. I’m really enjoying this series and I have put Rowena Holloway on my permanent TBR list. I can’t wait to read more from her.
