Scarlet Princess (Lochlann Feuds Book 1) by Robin D. Mahle and Elle Madison – Review by Sheri Schrader

Scarlet Princess (The Lochlann Feuds, #1)Scarlet Princess by Robin D. Mahle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Scarlet Princess by Robin D. Mahle and Elle Madison is the first book in The Lochlann Feuds Book series. This is my first book by these authors, and I was not disappointed. Rowen is a strong and interesting princess character. I like that the story stays away from all the tropes typical in this genre. Instead, the story leads an interesting and original path. The story is a great read that I didn’t want to put down. Also, the story ends on a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

Swindler’s Revenge (Karina Cardinal Mysteries Book 5) by Ellen Butler – Review by Sheri Schrader

Swindler's RevengeSwindler’s Revenge by Ellen Butler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Swindler’s Revenge by Ellen Butler is the fifth book in the Karina Cardinal series. First, I recommend reading the series to know Karina’s past escapades and the other characters that recur in the series. Karina seems to have things under control until the FBI shows up at her door looking for her ex, Mike Finnegan. Could Mike not be the upright FBI agent Karina thought he was? This story is a great addition to the series. I like that Karina finds herself in crazy situations but still finds her way through with the help of some talented individuals. I also like that this isn’t so intense and serious that it overwhelms the reader. The story has intensity but a nice amount of humor and a smidge of romance. I look forward to reading more in this series and from this author in the future.

Notebook Mysteries ~ Decisions and Possibilities by Kimberly Mullins is the second book in this series. This concerns an American teen investigator in mid-19th century Chicago. The character Emma is a former business student who finds herself engulfed in a mystery. I like the character Emma and how she is breaking stereotypes for her time period. She is smart and complex. I like that she is full of life and that the story is complex and full of twists and turns. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future and introducing this story to some young readers in my life.

The Girl and the Gargoyle: YA Paranormal Romance by Pauline Gruber is the second book in The Girl and the Raven book series. I highly recommend reading the first book in the series before this one.

The characters and the story are really compelling. I look forward to reading more from this series and from this author in the future.
