The Last Cabin Girl (Detective Josie Thompson Series) by Tom Swyers – Review by Dr. Anya Schultz

The Last Cabin Girl: A totally gripping thriller full of twistsThe Last Cabin Girl: A totally gripping thriller full of twists by Tom Swyers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Last Cabin Girl is a suspenseful, twisty thriller that starts a couple months before the COVID pandemic takes place. The main character, Josie, lives in a small town in New York State. Josie is a waitress, and a prospective nursing student who is trying to divorce her abusive husband. Her husband is the town doctor who is also known to be a drug dealer and do shady business. The story starts at the beginning of the pandemic and you see Josie seem very paranoid about many things in her life, the pandemic, her husband, and the secrets that surround her family. She lives in her family’s cabin that is very isolated, but also holds certain memories of her past. She had witnessed a dead body in the river the cabin lives along, but no one believed her. She finds herself in trouble when her husband and many of her husband’s associates go missing or are found dead. Did Josie have anything to do with this? Is her family secrets part of the problem?

This book had a slow start in my eyes. Reliving the first handful of months of the pandemic in this book didn’t give me the motivation to just fly through the pages and chapters. However, once you started to be given little aspects of how many secrets were floating around this town, it started to pique my interest. By half way through the book, I wanted to know the secrets and where this was all going. Well, I was not disappointed. The twists and turns of this book had me saying OMG. I had so many aspects in mind about what could be happening, some of them I figured out, but was pleasantly surprised that I would never have come up with some of the other ones presented. Worth the read if you like mysteries.

Until There Was You by G. Colgrove – Review by Tori Werkheiser

Until there was youUntil there was you by G. Colgrove
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ohh my, this book was fantastic. This story follows Regan, a southside local in Boston who meets Jeremy, the rich developer from LA. At first glance, Regan thinks she knows the kind of guy Jeremy is, the typical rich snob but once she gets to know him and they run into each other by chance she sees a different side to him. Can two people from completely different worlds fall in love and get their happily ever after is the question of this book. This love story was spicy and I didn’t expect it but loved it all the same. I appreciated the realness and heavy topics and the drama was just enough but not too far that it was overkill. I’m a sucker for dual POV and the epilogues always get me. This was a winner and it’s only the start of the month but this is a contender for best book of the month for me. 4.5/5

Each book is better than the last. Dahlia Nite is being hunted again, but thankfully this time she has a trusted team. This book is super action packed and I absolutely loved it. Please tell me that you are writing at least 10 more. LOL

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Harry, who was once Little Brother and a few other names as well, has had his fair share of heartache and joy, friendship and betrayal, life and death. He has lived for eons whether through sleep or by being present and awake from stasis. The tales that the Traveler must tell are of joy, friendship, betrayal, hate, and love. I loved reading about the beginnings of man through the eyes of an eyewitness and following his journey to today. The book is filled with adventure and excitement and is such a great read! The Traveler will not disappoint those who crave a good story that is written throughout the ages and has a bit of new age energy thrown in. The characters are “real” and often quirky but easily relatable especially Harry. I now need to read the first book in the series and cannot wait for the Next adventure that Harry proceeds on. Pick up this book and read it!!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I truly and thoroughly enjoyed this book! I could not put it down!! It was a little bit of danger, mystery, and a whole lot of love! I gave this book 4 stars because I wanted more! The author did an awesome job of describing the characters, the places and emotions that the characters were feeling at the time. Vanessa and Arkon, the book’s main characters have an electrifying relationship from the very start. I won’t go into too much detail because I don’t want to spoil it for anyone! This book is definitely a must read! I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

Dahlia is back… trying to fight the blight before it destroys everything everyone knows. Her trusty sidekick is back along with her 3 lovers which makes an unusual but interesting team dynamic
Cue drama, betrayals and so many secrets!

Finding out if Dahlia can save everyone from the blight, find her own happiness and fight off the collectors and solve Murders will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire story.

The narrator in this book is also great. the characters become engaging due to the different tones of her voice while she reads. Truly enjoyed this!

Checking Boxes
By: Magdoline Ward

Grace is a young adult who is trying to find herself in this world after she’s been thru some of her own personal Hell. Ian is the hot, young neighbor that lives in the same building. Fate would have them living together after Grace had enough with her roommate. The intensity, ferocity, and force of this story will be sure to keep you up turning the pages. You won’t be able to put down this story because you’ll want to keep with the pace that the author wrote.
Grace and Ian both have their own demons to work thru but doing that together may leave them broken. If you love love and if you love steamy romance, this is the book for you!

Mermaid and the Rainbow: Mermaid science is a really fun, cute read. This book brings science to everyday things allowing kids of all ages to see just how much science is truly around them. The bright colors of the illustrations really brought the story and characters to life. It is a fast read that can lead to a fun learning experience by recreating the science experiments from the book. I can’t wait to read this to the kids in my family the next time they visit.

Nite Fire: Slash & Burn (Book 4) AUDIO BOOK by C.L. Schneider – Review by Kerry Baker

I absolutely love this series. Each and every book is just as exciting as the last and the more I read the more engrossed by the characters I become. It takes no effort at all for me to be swept back into this world and it is honestly like I never stopped reading.
This book is just as fast paced as the previous ones, engaging and entertaining throughout. I love how the story continues throughout the series and how effortless the author makes this appear. This is a fantastic series and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
