Echoes: Lucifer and the Dark Goddess by Nikki Broadwell – Review by Sheri Schrader

Echoes--(Lucifer and the dark goddess book 1)Echoes– by Nikki Broadwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Echoes: Lucifer and the Dark Goddess by Nikki Broadwell is the first in a new series. This is a good read that kept me interested from beginning to end. There are paranormal elements, dystopian, and more to the story. The main character Feirin is more than what one first thinks when she is introduced. I think this story leaves the reader wanting to know more and wanting to read the next book in the series. I enjoyed the character and world-building of the story. I really enjoyed the mysterious elements of the story. This is not my first time reading this author and I have always enjoyed her work. I look forward to more in this series and more from the author in the future.

THE GRACEFUL GHOST: A story for girls rich with authentic ballet school detail and sparkling with ghostly mischief by Eleanor Dixon is a delightful story for all ages. I am always on the lookout for stories to share with my niece and this fits the bill perfectly. The story gives a good example of strength and courage through the actions of the characters. Also, the main character being a ghost in a building that has become a ballet school. I really enjoyed the story and the message and will keep an eye out for more books from this author.

Hell Hath No Fury by Naomi Valkyrie is the second book in the Life Is Hell series. I am really glad to get my hands on this second book in this new series. Again this is a quick read but not lacking in any way in a story or character development. I really enjoy the paranormal elements of the story and the different relationships. I also am glad that the sexual elements are not overdone. The relationships are fun and varied.

The Singer and Her SongThe Singer and Her Song by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Singer and Her Song by N.L. Holmes is the second book in the Empire at Twilight Book series. This series has been quite enjoyable and this second part of the series did not let me down. The author has built a wonderful historical fiction which incorporates the court of Ugarit. There is so much involved and the characters help bring this period to life. I really enjoyed how the story progressed and I really liked the story of Uqnitum and her daughter. Uqnitum dealt with so many challenges in her life and kept trying to find sanctuary. This had me reading just to find out what was going to happen. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Flipping the Bird (Shift Creek, #1)Flipping the Bird by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Flipping the Bird: A Paranormal Chick Lit Novel by Carrie Pulkinen is from the new series Shift Creek. This book is a delightfully entertaining paranormal read. I flew through the adventures of crow shifter, Alice Crawford and warlock, Donovan Drake as they try to save Shift Creek’s waterway. I always enjoy the books of this author. She always has some humour to go along with her realistic characters. Alice is funny but well-meaning. She just wants to save the community she loves. Donovan is new to the community but he wants to find his place in the world. I look forward to reading more in this series soon and this author.

Moonlit Whisper (An Irish Romance)Moonlit Whisper by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Moonlit Whisper: An Irish Romance by Amy McKinley is part of the Moonlit Destination series. This is a short read which left me wanting more of the story. The story concerns Fiona who has been asked to tutor a footballer, little does she know it is someone from her past. What will come of this reunion? This is a sweet romance with a HEA and can be read in one sitting. The best part is it can be read as a standalone story. I always enjoy a story from Amy McKinley and this certainly did not disappoint. I look forward to my next read from this great author.

CORPORATE CHRISTMAS by BERNADETTE MARIE – Review by Sheri Schrader

Corporate ChristmasCorporate Christmas by Bernadette Marie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Corporate Christmas by Bernadette Marie is a romantic Christmas story. This is a quick read which I went through in one sitting but nice because I wasn’t tied for days with a book. The story follows hardworking Chloe Richardson who has been overworking in order to bring in a prime client and land the new promotion. She has given up cherished family time and more for her job. When she is overlooked for the promotion for the new Jason Mitchell what does she do? I love that the character of Chloe is realistic and hardworking. She wants to be the best she can be and sometimes we are handed some crappy hurdles. I enjoyed how Jason handles his new position and finds a way to incorporate Chloe into his work. This is a sweet, romance between two people who are trying to make the best of their life. I really enjoyed this author and look forward to reading more from her in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bake Believe by Cori Cooper is a sweet read. I am always on the lookout for a cute book for my niece to read and this fits the bill. Cat Anderson is your normal middle-schooler ready for her first day of school. When her schedule goes array what does a young lady do? I love the realistic depiction of Cat and her friends. Also, how the author focused on things that would be dramatic to this age group. I really enjoyed this sweet adventure that had me wanting to try the recipes mentioned. I look forward to passing this on to my niece for her reading enjoyment. I look forward to reading and discovering more from Cori Cooper in the future.

Santa Got Run Over by a Vampire: A Paranormal Romantic Comedy (New Orleans Nocturnes Book 4) by Carrie Pulkinen – Review by Sheri Schrader

Santa Got Run Over by a Vampire (New Orleans Nocturnes, #3.5)Santa Got Run Over by a Vampire by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Santa Got Run Over by a Vampire by Carrie Pulkinen is the fourth book in the New Orleans Nocturnes series. These can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading at least book 1 before delving into this book. This is a delightfully fun quick read. This entire series is light, paranormal reading set in the perfect setting of New Orleans. I really have enjoyed Jane in the past but this gave a new insight into her and her marriage to Ethan. Also, one would ask how Santa Claus could fit into the story, but seriously you need to read this to find out. This is full of laughs and great characters. A definite getaway from this cruddy year. I look forward to more in this series and from this author in the future.

Eye of Death (Vampire State Book 3) by Alexander Charalambides – Review by Sheri Schrader

Eye of Death (Vampire State, #3)Eye of Death by Alexander Charalambides
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Eye of Death by Alexander Charalambides is the third book in the Vampire State series. Let me warn you to read these in order because the story does carry from one to the other and honestly, you don’t want to miss out on a great series. This book is even better than the last and I tore through it. As conditions have changed in Sanguinia life has changed for Rowena. In this book, there is a new romantic interest for her, but nothing is ever as simple as that. I really have enjoyed seeing the plot grow and change in this series and they always leave me wanting more. This is a great series of books if you enjoy paranormal, mystery, romance, and lots of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. I look forward to reading more from Charalambides in the future.
