Journeys Through SpaceTime (Journeys Through Book 1) by James Talisman – Review by Jonell Collins

Journeys Through SpaceTimeJourneys Through SpaceTime by James Talisman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Journeys Through Space Time, by James Talisman, was an interesting journey. It is a thinking book. I found I had to read it in small installments. Or maybe I just think too much. I felt a need to think about some of the things in the story. Many actors on this stage and many acts. I feel the need to read it again because I get the feeling when I come to the end that I have missed something. Most stories when you get to the end you expect them to be all tied up in a bow. Not this one. It leaves you thinking long after you’ve read the last page. I hope this author is well on his way to many more good stories.

Pieces Of A Lie by Rowena Holloway – Review by Jonell Collins

Pieces of a LiePieces of a Lie by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again with Pieces of A Lie, Rowena Holloway gives us a story that gives us an opportunity for some inner reflection. At the center of it is her relationship with her parents. Sometimes in ways we cannot recognize our relationships shape us. Our heroine in this story is Mina, and she is one tough cookie. She has built a wall so high that no one is going to get to her heart. Our hero Linc is so bound up in his own feelings of shame and inadequacy he almost misses his cue. This was a delightful little romance wrapped up in suspense and intrigue. A very pleasant little romp until you get to the end……it’s a “can’t put it down” after that.

Flower Shields (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 1) by C.A. King – Review by Jonell Collins

Flower Shields (A Four Horsemen Novel Book 1)Flower Shields by C.A. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Flower Shields by C. A. King is an interesting introduction. Our heroine in this story, Tara, seems destined for anonymity. Such a plain mousey young lady doesn’t seem to make for an interesting tale. But in all good stories there is always more than meets the eye. Someone finds her very interesting. By the time our hero arrives on the scene I was quite caught up in the story. The introduction, Flower Shields, to The Four Horseman novels has been intriguing to say the least. I am certainly on board for the next one.

Not Fade Away (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 4) by Donna S. Frelick – Review by Jonell Collins

Not Fade Away: Interstellar Rescue Series Book 4Not Fade Away: Interstellar Rescue Series Book 4 by Donna S. Frelick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s difficult to say what I like best about this book. It resonated with me because our hero, Rafe, in this story is dealing with a real life situation as best he can. It’s a situation that I myself am experiencing at this time . It’s difficult emotionally to care for an aging parent and it was quite refreshing to see this addressed in a good science fiction story. I could identify with him and it made the story comforting and made my own burden seem somewhat lighter.In Not Fade Away, once again Donna S. Frelick gives us a strong hero and heroine. Charlie is very confident and sure of herself. She, like all good caregivers, knows there’s more than one patient. It was such a good story I’m pretty sure I will be reading it again.

All That’s Left Unsaid by Rowena Holloway – Review by Jonell Collins

All That's Left UnsaidAll That’s Left Unsaid by Rowena Holloway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Anyone that has ever had a struggle communicating with a parent will enjoy Rowena Holloway’s story, All That’s Left Unsaid. There is nothing more frustrating than to speak the same language as another and find out…..you don’t speak the same language. Harriet is not only confused herself, but she is quite confusing in this story. You don’t know whether to feel sorry for her or bark at her. In the end it’s her stubbornness that becomes her most endearing trait. An intriguing mystery that moves along at a brisk little pace. Near the end, I couldn’t put it down. I had to know.

Ice Crown (The Elements of Kamdaria Book 1) by Kay L Moody – Review by Jonell Collins

Ice Crown (The Elements of Kamdaria 1)Ice Crown by Kay L Moody
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I liked Talise from the beginning. Vulnerable, but strong. Afraid but determined. As we begin with her on this journey, it doesn’t take you very long to see that Ice Crown by Kay L. Moody, is going to be a journey well worth the taking. The characters are developed enough to suck you into the story, but you get the feeling that there is so much more waiting to be discovered. I no longer throw fits over the books I read, mostly, but this incredible little story ended way sooner than I wanted it to. It has whetted my appetite and I can’t wait to read the next one in this series.

The Flood by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Jonell Collins

The FloodThe Flood by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! Just Wow! The Flood by Meghan O’Flynn was an excellent little story. Tension and suspense all the way through. Honestly. It was difficult to put this book down. Chapter after chapter new situations and revelations. Ever have a day when you know something is not right, but so many things are wrong you can’t pinpoint what’s wrong. Yeah, it’s like that. It’s a bumpy ride as we hang with Victoria while she figures out what is going on and what she can do about it.

Fools Rush In (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 3) by Donna S. Frelick – Review by Jonell Collins

Fools Rush In (Interstellar Rescue, #3)Fools Rush In by Donna S. Frelick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just can’t decide which of these books is my favorite. Trouble in Mind, Unchained Memory, now this one! I think I know but then I don’t. This book was such a good book. Suspense from start to finish. Rayna and Sam are such focused and strong characters it’s almost impossible to see this ever working out. The perfect blend of Rayna and Sam’s story with the reappearance of characters we’ve already been introduced to makes this story hard to put down. You won’t be sorry you read this one.

Tails Always Wins (Chasing Tails Book 1) by C.A. King – Review by Jonell Collins

Tails Always WinsTails Always Wins by C.A. King
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a delightful story! A wonderful quick read. An introduction to what, I am hoping will be a journey of many books. Our introduction to Tails and Brodie leaves you wanting more. Love without all the graphics makes this a perfect romance. A very fast paced book. Tails has it all together, and Brodie is just trying to figure it out. I am anxious to read more of this series because it appears to be the kind of narrative that will only get better and better. This book will quench your thirst for a few hours of delight.

Trouble in Mind (Interstellar Rescue Series Book 2) by Donna S. Frelick – Review by Jonell Collins

Trouble in Mind (Interstellar Rescue, #2)Trouble in Mind by Donna S. Frelick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This was a rip-roaring good book. The main characters Alana and Gabriel are very strong, confident and oh so memorable. Donna S. Frelick in Trouble in Mind, once again introduces us to characters that are so forceful and colorful that you do not forget them. That’s a very good thing because we meet them again. Lots of action, lots of suspense. This is the second book in this series, and I believe I am hooked. An unforgettable love story is interwoven with the deeper mystery. If you are looking for something to keep you up all night, this is the one for you!
