Jake Wolfe Series Bundle Box Set (Jake Wolfe #1-3)Jake Wolfe Series Bundle Box Set by Mark Nolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had an opportunity to read the Jake Wolfe Series Bundle Box Set: (Books 1-2-3) Vigilante Justice Thriller Series by Mark Nolan, a while back and I passed them up. Boy was that a big mistake! These books were excellent. The characters are so well described that you feel like these are real people you know. The story plots are interesting and unique. The language is beautiful and very well written. It was a joy reading them. There is love, there is anger, there is edge of your seat suspense, and they are packed with action. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Jump on these books, they are well worth the read.

The Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Jonell Collins

The Fat Girl's Guide to Loving Your BodyThe Fat Girl’s Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Fat Girls Guide to Loving Your Body by K.L. Montgomery is a book you need to read. Although this book is primarily a body positive book it can be about anything in yourself that you have decided you do not like. Ms. Montgomery points out in this book how that is a “choice”. Of course, we all want to say…well that’s easy to say but how do you do it. What are the mechanics of making a different choice? In this book Ms. Montgomery takes you on a journey that will lead you into learning how to do that. She teaches you the mechanics if you are listening with your heart and mind. The language is a little rough at times, but I think it reflects a very real person that is talking to you in a very real way. Not dressed up and all Grammarly but plain and simple, and down and dirty. I feel like it reflects the heart of someone who has a very real desire to help people find out where happiness can be found. Let K.L. Montgomery show you how you are so much more “than the sum of your parts.”

The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by Byrd Nash – Review by Jonell Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, what a wonderful collection of stories this book, The Wicked Wolves of Windsor and Other Fairytales, by Byrd Nash is. New stories but they feel so familiar. Easy to read, morals with a twist and they just feel good. Been a long time since I’ve read fairy tales, but these were so good. The Prince Learns A Lesson was my favorite. Think I am going to try a few of these out on my grands. I loved these stories, you will too!

The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart is by Jacquie Biggar – Review by Jonell Collins

The Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart isThe Sister Pact: Home is Where The Heart is by Jacquie Biggar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I can’t even begin to tell you what a pleasure this book was. The Sister Pact: Home is Where the Heart is by Jacquie Biggar was such a delight. A good clean romance with a situation between sisters that seems unsurmountable. Sometimes things happen in families that there seems there is just no coming back from. Someone has to be willing to cross the bridge, no matter how painful that is. In some situations time is short and it’s best not to leave it too long. Sometimes you just don’t know what you are missing. This was a great little story about all that. A real easy read that will leave you with a big sigh at the end. So glad I read this one, you will be too.

Game of Fear – A gripping psychological thriller with a shocking twist (Fearless Series) by Gledé Browne Kabongo – Review by Jonell Collins

Game of FearGame of Fear by Glede Browne Kabongo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Game of Fear by Glede Browne Kabongo is an interesting Young Adult book. Not murder and mayhem but blackmail and manipulation. A book about mistakes and how they come back to haunt us and a book about facing our prejudice and overcoming it. It’s a good clean story that is well suited to teenagers and older adults who like a good mystery to unravel. A really good, laid back read.

Dagda’s Daughter (Raven and Hummingbird Book 2) by Nikki Broadwell – Review by Jonell Collins

Dagda's Daughter: Raven and Hummingbird Book 2Dagda’s Daughter: Raven and Hummingbird Book 2 by Nikki Broadwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dagda’s Daughter, Raven and Hummingbird Book Two by Nikki Broadwell is truly a story about a very dysfunctional family. Who doesn’t have one of those? This is a story about betrayal, discovery, recovery, and love. So much in this one. There are a few steamy scenes but nothing that distracts from the story line. This was a nice little story that stood alone although it is book two of a three book series. I will certainly be reading the next one too.

Kermode (Legends Series Book 2) by Maggie Adams – Review by Jonell Collins

Kermode: Legends Series Book 2Kermode: Legends Series Book 2 by Maggie Adams
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kermode: Legends Series Book 2 by Maggie Adams is a rollicking little tale. Pure entertainment. If you are looking for a little light reading this is brain candy. A just reward for all those serious books. Imagine someone tells you that you are the big lottery winner, and you never bought a ticket. That’s the situation Piper Sweet finds herself in. Noah, just an innocent looking for some troublemakers walks into her shop and doesn’t even know what hit him. Reader be aware, there are some steamy situations that some may find uncomfortable. This is a nice little read that can be read as a standalone, but why miss the big picture.

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3) by Mya O’Malley – Review by Jonell Collins

Lillie (Maggie Trilogy Series Book 3)Lillie by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I must confess, the first two books in this Maggie Trilogy was so good, that I set aside a whole block of time so that I could sit and read this third book: Lillie by Mya O’Malley. And let me tell you it was not a disappointment. Since the first two were so good I thought surely this one had to be just as good. To tell you the truth it was even better. By book three you are so invested in these characters you are spellbound. Everything that Naomi has done and achieved due to her special gift she now stands to lose. Naomi is strong and has faith. This was truly a good book.

Naomi (Maggie Trilogy Book 2) by Mya O’Malley – Review by Jonell Collins

NaomiNaomi by Mya O’Malley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another intriguing “who done it” in Naomi by Mya O’Malley. Once again Naomi is caught up in murder and suspense on behalf of her “ghostly” friends. It’s an easy to read quick little book that will keep you turning the page. This little enterprise interferes with her love life, and all her plans for her happily ever after. Naomi is a strong woman but is she that strong. You’ll have to read it to find out. This is the second book in this little trilogy, can’t wait to start the next one.

Tanuja Ramachandran: Hunter Seeker by Kumar Sivasubramanian – Review by Jonell Collins

Tanuja Ramachandran: Hunter-SeekerTanuja Ramachandran: Hunter-Seeker by Kumar Sivasubramanian
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tanuja Ramachandran:Hunter-Seeker by Kumar Sivarsubramanian was quite a surprise. I have to confess when I first started reading it, I thought this is the craziest thing I’ve ever read, and I must say I had my doubts about it. As it turns out it was crazy good. Our main character Tanuja is one tough gal, made even tougher by the fact that she has narcolepsy. Not what you would expect by an ultra-bad James Bond type gal. Tragic thing have happened in her life that drives her, and she is teamed up with her brother Max to do a job. It is a very touching note to the story that no matter how far out there his sister is Max believes there is redemption for her. To sum it all up, this was a story well worth my time and I think I want to follow Tanuja on more of her adventures.
