Edge of the Storm (Silent Secrets Book 2) by Lisette Kristensen – Review by Sara Oxton

Edge of the Storm: Book 2 (Silent Secrets)Edge of the Storm: Book 2 by Lisette Kristensen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Edge of the Storm by Lisette Kristensen a fast-paced thriller of a four-star read. It was so fast paced you will read this in one sitting and your heart will need to rest afterwards as it will be racing. This was such a refreshing read, it has such strong female characters that you don’t see often in the circumstances of this story. The depth the author managed to get out of the characters in such a short number of pages was amazing. I will say the only downside to this book was the subject matter Terrorism is such a touchy subject right now and one I would have rather avoided but to be honest I’m glad I did as the characters overwhelmed any negative effects from the subject.

The Immigrant: An Italian in America (The Italian Saga Book 7) by Gaia B Amman – Review by Sara Oxton

The Immigrant. An Italian in AmericaThe Immigrant. An Italian in America by Gaia B. Amman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Immigrant by GB Amman a four-star read that will make you see stars and stripes. This series is confusing me, but it could be as I haven’t read it in order, this is the first novel in the Woman Scientist novels, but number seven in the Italian Saga, its set up in chunks and each tell a different part of the whole story/saga. Leda is brave, but she is also annoying at times, she is brave as she leaves everything she knows behind for a year, but stupid as she leaves what she loves. This whole saga has a way of sucking you in and making everything grow on you like a moss.

Fierce Emotions (Marcy Series Book 8) by Linda Burson – Review by Sara Oxton

Fierce EmotionsFierce Emotions by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fierce Emotions by Linda Burson a four-star read that will burn you down. This is the eighth novel in the Marcy series and some of the earlier novels can be read out of order, but these later ones I would definitely be recommend reading in order as it does get more detailed and drama oriented. These characters are all complex and have their own stories, and they have developed great over the duration of the series, this one almost felt a little like everything should be coming together but as is typical in the life of Marcy and her boys it never runs smooth.

Rage (The Marcy Series Book 1) by Linda Burson – Review by Sara Oxton

Rage (The Marcy series Book 1)Rage by Linda Burson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rage by Linda Burson a four-star read that will make you see red. This is the first novel in the Marcy series, I have read the series in the wrong order but have enjoyed them all for different reasons. This one was a little different and I struggled more at times with this one than some of the others. But that being said the story was good, and it shows us Marcy is a strong character and she shows usher strength of character that will surprise you at times, but it will also show you how great the writing and character development is by this author.

Death and the Crone: Book Three of the Lucky Devil Series by Megan Mackie – Review by Sara Oxton

Death and the Crone: Book Three of the Lucky Devil SeriesDeath and the Crone: Book Three of the Lucky Devil Series by Megan Mackie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Death and the Crone by Megan MacKie a five-star read that will turn you on your head. This is number three in the Lucky Devil series and it could be read as stand-alone, but I have read the series and loved them all. It’s the way the author turns what you think on its head and gives you a different side of the story. Margret is a great character and will make you read her great story, she is fresh and interesting and gives us great wit to her character. Elias was brilliantly written, the whole unsureness about who he was and what he was that unfolded like a flower as you read it. The settling was great, and you can smell the Chicago streets as you read the pages. This is a great series and one you will enjoy.

That’s a Wrap (Paranormal Talent Agency Book 3) by Heather Silvio – Review by Sara Oxton

That's a Wrap (Paranormal Talent Agency, #3)That’s a Wrap by Heather Silvio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That’s a Wrap by Heather Silvio a five-star read that will make you see stars, the stars in Hollywood that it. This is the third novel in the paranormal talent agency and each one gets better than the last. Its like catching up with old friends, seeing what they have gotten up to while you have been away the weekend. The sparks are electric when Mia meets Jacob and usually electricity and water, I wouldn’t recommend but somehow these pair make it work, it could be the fact that Jacob is super-hot and funny when he wants to be. I only wish that we got to sink our teeth into him more, but Mia more than makes up for it.

Run to the Sea (Reigning Hearts Book 1) by KG Fletcher – Review by Sara Oxton

Run to the Sea (Reigning Hearts, #1)Run to the Sea by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Run to the Sea by K.G. Fletcher a five-star read that will make you hear the waves of the ocean. This is the first novel in the Reigning Hearts series, and I can’t wait for the next one, the passion and compassion will captivate you and compel you to read each page. Your emotions will go through the ringer with this one as the author has a great way of sucking you in and making you care about characters, K.G. Fletcher makes you feel like a part of the story so much that you will taste the guilt on your tongue. It’s a great story and the rest of the series can’t come quickly enough.

Tainted Saint (The Hawke Family Book 5) by Gwyn McNamee – Review by Sara Oxton

Tainted Saint (Hawke Family #5)Tainted Saint by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tainted Saint by Gwyn McNamee a five-star read that will have you on your knees. This is number five in the Hawke Family saga and it’s the first novella and it was sublime. The length felt enough that you didn’t miss any details, it’s the first main character that isn’t a Hawke family member well not by blood anyhow, but Saint is something to everyone in the family. It was so nice to hear his story, see him come out of the shadows and get to see what makes Caroline tick.

Things We Lost (Loving Locksley Book 1) by Shae Banks – Review by Sara Oxton

Things We Lost (Loving Locksley Book 1)Things We Lost by Shae Banks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Things We Lost by Shae Banks a four-star read that you won’t want to lose. I enjoyed this story and the writing but I do have to admit that its not my favourite second chance romance, that being said I cant wait to see more from this author in particular where she will go with the rest of the Loving Locksley series as the writing is good. Nathalie Johnson and Jason Locksley have a good story, its well plotted and is very real, and just like most relationships it ebbs and flows but also there isn’t any fireworks, well not enough to make it memorable. This story shows us great promise.

SHORTCUTS (Singularities) by Amy Bearce – Review by Sara Oxton

Shortcuts (Singularities)Shortcuts by Amy Bearce
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shortcuts by Amy Bearce a four-star read that will take you away. It is a great story for older children as well as having something for adults as well. The fantasy element of the story is well done, I enjoy the genre but its not one of my favourites at the moment but this one sucked me in, and the story kept me hooked. The characters are real, and you will find something in them that you will identify with. If you like your fantasy with a great story, then you will enjoy this one.
