The Crocodile Makes No Sound (The Lord Hani Mysteries Book 2) by N.L. Holmes – Review by Sheri Schrader

The Crocodile Makes No Sound (Lord Hani Mysteries #2)The Crocodile Makes No Sound by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Crocodile Makes No Sound by N.L. Holmes is the second book in The Lord Hani Mysteries Book series. I recommend reading the first book in the series prior to this one. In this book Lord Hani has his tons on his plate, there are multiple situations going on which affect him all at once. His character is becoming more developed as the series progresses, and I am getting more interested in learning more about him. Also, I love the fact that this is set during the times of ancient Egypt. This takes this story in a very different direction than if it took place in more contemporary days. I look forward to reading more from this series and this author in the future.

Secure Again (Chase Security Series #2) by R.L. Dunn – Review by Sheri Schrader

Secure Again (Chase Security Series Book 2)Secure Again by R.L. Dunn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Secure Again by R.L. Dunn is the second book in the Chase Security Series. This is a continuation of the first book, so I highly recommend reading book one in the series first. This story focuses on Dr. Elizabeth Reed, who notices a mysterious medical issue at the jail and Martin Bailey, CEO of Chase Security International, who has his own investigations ongoing. This is a good story that is full of suspense, mystery, and romance. I was drawn into the story and wanted to keep reading to find out what was going on for Dr. Reed and Martin’s cases. I liked there were separate stories, but they intertwined. I also enjoyed the characters. I look forward to reading more in this series soon.

True Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel Book 4) by India Kells – Review by Sheri Schrader

True Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #4)True Bastard by India Kells
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

True Bastard by India Kells is the fourth book in A Dark Sparrow Novel series. The series focuses on a different couple in each book. These can be read as standalone books, but I really have enjoyed reading them in order because they build upon each other. These books are fun and exciting to read. Liam and Catriona are fascinating to read about. The contrast between the two characters is so good and really made me enjoy their story even more. This story is not a straight romance but also contains action, thrills, and twists. I have enjoyed the books in this series as well as others by this author and this one did not disappoint. I look forward to reading more by India Kells in the future.

I’ll See You Again: A Scottish rock star, standalone opposites-attract romance (Reigning Hearts Book 4) by K.G. Fletcher – Review by Sheri Schrader

I'll See You Again (Reigning Hearts, #4)I’ll See You Again by K.G. Fletcher
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ll See You Again: A Scottish rock star, standalone opposites-attract romance by K.G. Fletcher is the fourth book in the Reigning Hearts series. These are fun, romantic books which are standalone and can be read alone or in any order. This story focuses on Nicky and Reid. The two characters seem destined to be once they meet, but will destiny work in their favor? I really enjoy the differences in their characters and how the story develops around them. I always enjoy books by this author and this is without exception. I enjoy that the story isn’t a perfect relationship and that there are highs and lows. Much more realistic to read that the perfect romance. I look forward to reading much more from this author in the future.

The Body Collector (Bad Boys of Space Book 3) by Landra Graf – Review by Sheri Schrader

The Body Collector (Bad Boys of Space Book 3)The Body Collector by Landra Graf
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Body Collector by Landra Graf is the third book in the Bad Boys of Space series. This can be read and enjoyed as a standalone story. The story focuses on Big Al and Loyda. The two of them are in opposite parts of society but happen upon one another. Can one possibly be able to help the other? I enjoyed the characters and the space setting. It gives the story a bit of unrealness but still grounded in a futuristic reality. This story is a quick read and has action, adventure, twists, turns, and romance. There is something for almost everyone who wants to get away for a bit. I see this series as getaways from the seriousness of life. Don’t we all need that this year? I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

It Comes From Within (House Valdis Book 2) by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Sheri Schrader

It Comes From Within (House Valdis #2)It Comes From Within by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It Comes From Within by Naomi Valkyrie is the second book in the House Valdis series. I highly recommend reading the first book before this because most of the characters are introduced there. This is a multi-faceted and complex fantasy book. The characters, especially Xenobia, are really deep and interesting. I really enjoy the storyline and it is interesting to see where the author is taking the story. I like the multiple layers of story and character development going on because it pushes the pace of the book and makes it almost impossible to set it down. This is not always one of my favorite genres but Naomi Valkyrie is making a convert of me. She writes and tells a story very well and keeps this reader engaged until the very last page. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

DEVIL’S CLAW (A Logan McKenna Mystery Book 3) by Valerie Davisson – Review by Sheri Schrader

Devil's Claw: Logan Book 3 (The Logan McKenna Series)Devil’s Claw: Logan Book 3 by Valerie Davisson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Devil’s Claw by Valerie Davisson is the third book in the Logan McKenna Mystery series. I really enjoyed this addition to the series. The character of Logan McKenna is great to read about and there is always something interesting which turns Logan’s world upside down. This book hits some themes which all will understand and relate to: resentment, pain, personal loss, and greed. What these do to some is unmentionable while others come through the flames. The story is interesting and kept me reading to find out what all the twists would lead to. I always enjoy a good story with interesting characters which keeps me reading late into the night. I look forward to where this series goes to in the future.

House Valdis Origins: Xenobia by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Sheri Schrader

House Valdis Origins: Xenobia (House Valdis, #0)House Valdis Origins: Xenobia by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

House Valdis Origins: Xenobia by Naomi Valkyrie is a prequel to the first novel in this series, The Rise of House Valdis. This is a quick read but very entertaining. I enjoyed getting a new insight into the character, Xenobia. This adds to the first book and the rest of the series and the relationships and characters being developed. I read this in record time and was sad to see the end of this book. I felt like it covered what was needed and now I will be rereading the first book before grabbing the second book. This is a great series and I look forward to reading more from it in the future.

The Lightning Horse (Empire at Twilight Book 1) by N.L. Holmes – Review by Sheri Schrader

The Lightning Horse (Empire at Twilight, #1)The Lightning Horse by N.L. Holmes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Lightning Horse by N.L. Holmes is the first book in the Empire at Twilight series. This is historical fiction with a bit of thriller and mystery thrown in. The author used her experience in archaeology to bring a well-written piece to work. There is a very helpful map at the front and a list of historical notes to refer to as needed. This is about a young Hittite charioteer who learns so much concerning the personalities of man and the pain of loss at a young age. How does he move forward with his life? I will not give more away concerning the plot because I will not be able to stop. There is so much involved and I enjoyed the characters as well as the setting. I look forward to where this series will go in the future and reading more from this author.
