Murder Makes Waves (Jack and Frances mysteries Book 3) by Carmen Radtke – Review by Netania Lim

Murder Makes Waves (Jack and Frances mysteries, #3)Murder Makes Waves by Carmen Radtke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great story with plenty of intrigue, suspense and twists. I hadn’t read any books by this author or the previous books in this series, which would have probably helped establish the characters better. Still, I grew to understand the characters Jack and Frances quickly. I also loved the setting of a voyage to England from Australia, as an Australian being able to understand many of the cultural references, and the historical details were a delight. It’s a kind of cozy read and highly entertaining. Having enjoyed this story, I would read the other books in this series now.

City Without A Sun (Vampire State, #2)City Without A Sun by Alexander Charalambides
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Once again a good story by Alexander Charalambides. The story of Rowena and Vincenzo just gets better and better. This story had a few twists and turns but that just made it very interesting. The vibrant world that Alexander Charalambides has created make the novel come alive. I look forward to the future adventures of Rowena and Vincenzo.

Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie: A Gripping Thriller (Jake Wolfe Book 1) by Mark Nolan – Review by Angela Shirley

Dead Lawyers Don't Lie (Jake Wolfe, #1)Dead Lawyers Don’t Lie by Mark Nolan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What happens when you are in the wrong place at the wrong time, but also have a picture of a murder who has added you to there hitlist.

Jake is a war veteran and is in San Francisco when he takes a picture but does not realised that he may have photographed a killer. As Jake then realises he has placed himself in the middle of this serial killers sights and will he be next on the hit list.

I really enjoyed the twists and turns within the story and that it was constructed really well. The characters are brilliant and enhance the story as it weaves through the world of “The Artist”, with the story exploring Jake’s past it lets you into the experiences which has made this man who he is today.

This is the first story I have read by this author and loved the style of writing which draw me in and I could not stop reading once started. I can’t wait for the next book in this series and to read more about Jake.

Blood of the Dragon (Relic Hunters Book 4) by Martin Ferguson – Review By Jonell Collins

Blood of the Dragon (Relic Hunters, #4)Blood of the Dragon by Martin Ferguson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Martin Ferguson does it again with Blood of the Dragon (Relic Hunters Book 4). I love these books so much. I think they are original and unique stories built around legends and myths most of us have grown up with. I haven’t read a one of these yet that I haven’t learned something new. These books never fail to inspire me to do added research. Having said all that, I have done research on Vlad the Impaler, but I missed the whole Ottoman empire thing and the history and geography of Wallachia. Great book, I am for sure a fan.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this novel by Alexander Charalambides. I love paranormal novels and especially novels about vampires. Alexander Charalambides has created a new twist to the normal vampire novel. The story of Rowena and Vincenzo is intriguing, and I cannot wait to see how it progresses. Alexander Charalambides has created a vibrant world and I look forward to exploring it more with the continuation of the story.

Dreaming of Christmas: 5 complete, sweet holiday romances by Joanne Dannon – Review by Angela Hayes

Dreaming of ChristmasDreaming of Christmas by Joanne Dannon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3 ½ Stars

Dreaming of Christmas by Joanne Dannon is a wonderful collection of Christmas/holiday romances. This is the first time I have read any of Ms. Dannon’s work, so I was excited to see what I would find. I love Christmas stories, and at this time of the year I tend to read as many as I can- so I was only too happy to one-click a copy to explore.
There are five short stories that make up this collection. They are:

-A Magical Christmas in Jerusalem
– Another Magical Christmas in Jerusalem
– Christmas Kiss, New Year’s Wish
– Christmas Kiss in London
– Christmas Kiss: But Only For the Holidays

The stories are sweet, cut, and fun- with banter, emotion and interesting characters- made for an enjoyable read.
Happy Reading.

Thank you, Joanne Dannon!

The Devil’s Day (The Lucky Devil Series Book 3) by Megan Mackie – Review by Erin Wolf

The Devil's DayThe Devil’s Day by Megan Mackie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give The Devil’s Day (The Lucky Devil Book 3) by Megan Mackie 5 stars.

This series grabbed me from the very beginning and each book gets better and better. This one is no exception. There is plenty of action and suspense going on, but we also see how much Rune and St. Benedict have grown, and continue to grow. The characters are what really make this series. But they are not the only ones in this book. You will see those from previous books return, as well as some new characters. The story itself is so complex and enchanting. The author does a fantastic job of creating a world and story unlike any other. While in the same world as the previous books and an obvious continuation, this story is unique and enthralling. I hope this series never ends.

If you are a fan of urban fantasy with realistic main characters, this book and series are for you. In my opinion, it can be read as a standalone, but you will understand more if you read the previous books first.

Blood of the Dragon (Relic Hunters Book 4) by Martin Ferguson – Review By Gail Guerrero

Four Stars

This is book four in this action packed series. The author has given us so much through these books and I will have to say this one I have enjoyed the most. The characters get put through a lot and you can really see the growth. I liked how the author includes the history into the story. Like it something you’ve heard of but in a different light. We’ve all heard of Vlad the Impaler but now read about him from this authors POV and it makes it interesting. This series is for everyone. Not only for the YA genre. You can feel the energy coming off the pages.

The Devil's Day (The Lucky Devil Book 3)The Devil’s Day by Megan Mackie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Devil’s Day (The Lucky Devil Series Book 3) by Megan Mackie, is just the next in a series of very excellent and imaginative stories. I have been following this story with avid interest. I’ve really been cheering for Rune to step into her role as Mistress of her house. And the relationship between her and St. Benedict keeps me on the edge of my seat. Slowly but surely all my questions are being answered. This is a great story on its own but its fantastic when you start at the beginning. You owe it to yourself to start at the beginning of The Lucky Devil Series you will be glad you did.
