By: Mark Nolan
5 out of 5 stars

I absolutely love this series and am always looking forward to the next story. Ever since I first read about Jake Wolfe and his war dog Cody I have been hooked. This book is just the latest amazing read that pulls you in from the very beginning and it is a fast-paced journey that doesn’t end until the final page. It will have you turning pages to find out what happens next. Jake Wolfe is a man that I would want on my side. He is loyal and protective of those he cares about. One of them is his war dog Cody. They have a deep bond that can’t be broken. This story has Jake and Cody searching for a missing item that if not recovered innocent lives are at stake. Will they get to the missing item before a ruthless group of killers does? Read this book to find out. I also enjoyed reading about the many characters that Jake and Cody interact with. There are old friends and those who want those who are evil to face justice. I love how detailed the story is and I when reading I feel like I am right there with the characters. Don’t miss out on a story that will have you reading far into the night in order to finish. Highly recommended.

Ailey of Skye
By: Wendy Hewlett
5 out of 5 stars

I found the story Ailey of Skye by Wendy Hewlett to be an amazing book to read. It pulls you in right from the beginning and didn’t let me go until I had read the final page. It is a story that will have you believing in the strength of the human spirit and of the will to survive. I loved reading about the main character of Aileen MacEwan. She is a young woman that has an inner strength that shows for all to see. She at times has to be reminded of it. Aileen is a recovering alcoholic/addict who has come to the Isle of Scotland to a house that her grandmother left her. She is trying to figure out what is next in her life. It is on the island that the past is revealed, and revelations are made. I found Aileen to be strong and independent. Read her journey as she develops a “friendly” relationship with a Scottish football legend and discovers her family ties. This is a book that had my emotions going up and down the entire time I was reading. It also had me hooked and turning pages to find out what happens next. I couldn’t help but find myself caring about Aileen with each chapter that I read. I don’t believe I can put into words how deeply I loved reading this story. I would highly recommend reading it.
