Music Man (Romance in Rehoboth #1) by K.L. Montgomery – Review by Jennifer Gordon

Music Man (Romance in Rehoboth Book 1)Music Man by K.L. Montgomery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Music Man is a single Dad rock star romantic comedy and is a fun and enjoyable read. Book one in a new series by K.L. Montgomery, each book in the ‘Romance in Rehoboth’ series is a standalone story set in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. “You’re never too old to fall in love with a rock star. Or chase your dreams”. Claire has just turned 40 and fallen in love with Jack, a want to be, rock star. Claire’s not sure if it’s his guitar, his beard or the flannel he wears but she finds Jack utterly irresistible. Music has always been Jacks first love but having failed to make it big as a singer and songwriter he turned to teaching music instead. When he starts teaching piano to Claire, he finds himself falling for the stunning read head. Then just as they start a relationship Jack’s big break comes and he has a chance to become a rock star and fulfil his first love.
I enjoyed this romantic comedy, Claire is an independent and strong female lead character and Jack is essentially a nice guy. I like the fact that Montgomery has written a romance novel where the main characters are over 40, rather than the younger norm. The storyline flowed nicely and I was fully immersed in Claire and Jack’s love story and loved the setting of Delaware’s top vacation destination. I look forward to reading other books in this series.

Age of Secrets (The Druid’s Brooch Series Book 8) by Christy Nicholas – Review by Caítríona Brauders

Age of Secrets (Druid's Brooch: #8)Age of Secrets by Christy Nicholas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t read many novels of this genre but I will be checking out more books from Christy Nicholas now that I’ve read this book.
Its a book with a comfortable vibe to it, its pace is steady and I loved the descriptions that Christy Nicholas used to really set the scene. The characters are complex and I think its easy to relate to the main character Fingin who feels like hes an outsider in life and takes comfort and peace in the shape of a dog called Bran. A great insight to the relationship of man and mans best friend.
A feel good read and good if you’re looking something a little different.

Black Blade (Black Blade Book 1) by Alexander Charalambides – Review by Jonell Collins

Black BladeBlack Blade by Alexander Charalambides
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I first started reading Black Blade (Black Blade Book 1) by Alexander Charalambides, I was a bit put off with the short clipped dialogue of our hero and heroine. But as I continued to read, I realized how normal that was. That is exactly how a great many of us speak and communicate. It was worth sticking with it because as you progress through the story the other characters in the story have dialogue that is a thing of beauty. I love language and how it flows together, and this author brings it to the fore. The characters are very unique, well described and memorable. The world he builds is diverse and you can almost smell it. There is plenty of action, twists and turns and quite unpredictable. Then, of course, there is always the story within the story. Just a little head up here the story goes at a nice little pace until you near the end. It’s a page turning roller coaster after that. Be prepared.

Journeys Through TimeSpace (Journeys Through Book 2) by James Talisman – Review by Jonell Collins

Journeys Through TimeSpaceJourneys Through TimeSpace by James Talisman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In Journeys Through TimeSpace (Journeys Through Book 2) by James Talisman we meet again some of the same characters from the first book and who doesn’t like a save-the-world book. With young adults Matt, Julia, and Dan who are on their way to … becoming, and the characters on the spaceship Basilisk having second thoughts, this is a great little world that gets your mind to thinking. This is not a book to just zip through it’s a book to think through.

P.A.W.S. by Debbie Manber Kupfer is an excellent little book. A good book for a young adult to read. It’s about belonging about finding your tribe. Mary spends many years as the odd man out.

Aberration (Aberration Series Book 1) by Naomi Valkyrie & Rebecca E. McEwen – Review by Jonell Collins

AberrationAberration by Rebecca E McEwen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Aberration: Book One by Naomi Valkyrie and Rebeccae McEwen, is a fast paced, simply written story. They set up a believable world with nicely built characters. It has a good plot and its left a little open ended for more. I see a series coming on. Even a little romance going on in this story that some might feel uncomfortable with.

Age of Secrets (The Druid’s Brooch Series Book 8) by Christy Nicholas – Review by Jonell Collins

Age of Secrets (Druid's Brooch: #8)Age of Secrets by Christy Nicholas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Age of Secrets: Druid’s Brooch Series: #8 by Christy Nicholas, is a delightful book. Reading this book was pure enjoyment. It’s a slowed motion kind of book and you really get to know Fingin. It’s like he becomes a really good friend because you know about his past and you know how he’s living now. The story develops at a slow pace so that you become familiar with all the other characters and their places of importance in Fingin’s life. A story so well-written you feel like you’re right there with him on his journey. Through his quest he finds purpose in life and I especially like this quote from the book…”Friends who make one forget self-loathing are treasures beyond that of gold or silver.” If you need a breath of fresh air this is a book you’re really going to love…

The Finder of the lucky Devil (The Lucky Devil series Book 1) by Megan Mackie – Review by Jonell Collins

The Finder of the Lucky Devil (Lucky Devil Series Book 1)The Finder of the Lucky Devil by Megan Mackie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Finder of the Lucky Devil by Megan Mackie was such a delightful story. I loved this book. This book had me sucked in at the very first few pages. And then it was just a terrific read all the way through. It was exciting, it was adventurous, it was action packed. Go with Rune on this amazing adventure and discover who this mysterious man, St. Benedict is. What is his place in this story. It’s a well written story, it has wonderful characters, and the world that Maggie has built is easily visualized. Plenty of twists and turns here. It’s just a romping good story. If you like fantasy with a little mystery mixed in, you will really like this book. It’s left a little bit open ended which makes me think we will be seeing more of Rune and St. Benedict and I can’t wait.

Who: A Stalker Series Novel by Megan Mitcham – Review by Meg Tyrrell

Who (Stalker, #1)Who by Megan Mitcham
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book I’ve read from author Megan Mitcham, first in this series as well. I liked this book so much. It was a little slow going at first but i still couldn’t put it down. Loved the characters (Darren is my favorite!! Love him) This book kept me on the edge of my seat wanting more with every turn. I may have not read any Megan Mitcham before but I will absolutely read everything she writes from now on.
This story introduces Larkin, she’s our independent self made corporate business woman. She doesn’t take crap from anyone and doesn’t have time for any relationship besides her “girls”. We also get to meet Lucas, head of security. Douglas, her awesome and sweet driver and of course the girls, just to name a few. Find out in this story about how Larkin deals with everyone thinking they know best for her, and who’s out to get her!
