Sure As Hell (Life Is Hell Book 4) by Naomi Valkyrie – Review by Sheri Schrader

Sure As Hell (Life is Hell #4)Sure As Hell by Naomi Valkyrie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sure As Hell by Naomi Valkyrie is the fourth book in the fantastic Life is Hell series. This time the story focuses on Jaru and Larkspur. The great part of this series is the recurring characters and getting to see them each tell their own stories, but how they work into the stories of other characters. I recommend reading each of these in order, but I think this is written to be read also as a standalone. I really enjoyed the story of Jaru. It had me laughing and enjoying the story but also relating to the idea that when things go too well things tend to go to crap. How relatable! I love how the characters are developed and entwine around each other despite their differences. I always love picking up this series and look anxiously to the next book by this author.

On Viking Seas (Forerunner Series)On Viking Seas by Jay Veloso Batista
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

On Viking Seas by Jay Veloso Batista is the third book in the Forerunner series. I had not read the other books in the series and plan on going back to them. This is a highly detailed and well-thought-out historical fantasy. It is set in a time of emerging Christianity but also where the Gods rule over the people. The characters are well developed and I enjoyed the interactions between them and how they move the story forward. I also enjoyed the different aspects which take place separately but all come together in ways. There is a lot to take in and this is why I plan to go back and grab the other books so I can better appreciate all the different storylines. This is a good story and I look forward to reading more from this author in the near future.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Love Between the Lines by A.D. Brazeau is a book from The Page Turners Series. This is a delightful, chicklit, romance story featuring Marlowe Bennet. She is very relatable wanting to just live her life as a writer. The issue is she writes romance and has none in her life. Heath Rochester is a former model and now running his family’s bookstore and he has his sights on Marlowe. Will they or won’t they? You have to read this fun book to get the answer. I really enjoyed the characters and lightness of the story. I really needed a little romantic pick me up and this fit the bill. I look forward to more from this author in the future.

Loyalty & Lies (Spicetopia Book 6) by Phoebe Alexander – Review by Sheri Schrader

Loyalty & LiesLoyalty & Lies by Phoebe Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loyalty & Lies by Phoebe Alexander is the sixth book in the Spicetopia series. This can be read as a standalone story and enjoyed completely. Calvin and Paisley Mitchell have decided for their anniversary to go to Spicetopia to add some spice to their marriage before the new baby arrives. But does this bring in more questions than answers for the couple? This series has always been spicy but this addition truly brings the heat. This is a crossover to another of the author’s series but I do not feel as if I have missed vital information in order to enjoy this book. As always she brings something new to the table and I enjoy how she develops the ongoing series and introduces us to another layer and element to the overall story. This is not for young eyes but enjoyed by adults. I look forward to where Ms. Alexander takes me next in her books and will wait for her next book.

Witness (Ash Park Series Book 9) by Meghan O’Flynn – Review by Sheri Schrader

Witness: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 9)Witness: An Ash Park Novel by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Witness by Meghan O’Flynn is the ninth book in the Ash Park Novel series. This is rare to say but this series only becomes more intriguing and interesting the deeper it goes. Detective Edward Petrosky is back and has gotten what looks like a simple case. Of course, nothing is as simple as it seems. This case links back to a previous case and leaves many questions for Petrosky to figure out. I will not write about the plot more because I do not want to give any of this thrilling book away. This is filled with mystery, crime, thrills, and intrigue. I really look forward to reading more from this author and this series in the future.

I read this quickly and was left wanting the next book in the series. I enjoy the characters and the odd murders they find themselves involved in. This is a great getaway book to get your mind off of all the craziness of the world and allow yourself to find yourself elsewhere. I hope there is more to this series and look forward to more from this author in the future.
