It Comes From Within by Naomi Valkyrie
Four Stars

It Comes From Within is the second book in the House Valdis series by Naomi Valkyrie. This series should be read in order to fully understand the plotline. This book takes place six months after the Rise Of the House Valdis. The story is multi layered with amazing characters. I would consider it to be Fantasy/Sci-Fi which is not a normal genre that I read, but Ms. Valkyrie really has my attention with this series. All of the characters in this book have a voice and I love how we learn more about them and thing that have shaped their lives. This author is growing with every book and I look forward to reading many more books in the future.

Build-A-Book Workshop is the second book in The Literary Handyman series by Danielle Ackley McPhail. This informative “how to” is filled with some really great information. It is easy to follow and chapters are well defined. If you are an author just staring out, this book will give you a bunch of different ideas to make your book stand out and hopefully make money. For me, I read the book because I was thinking about dabbling in writing. The tips are refreshing and are easy to follow. I would recommend this book to beginning author.

Drifting, Falling: Diary of a Call Girl Suicide by A.J. Ullman – Review by Sunday Barnaby

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Drifting Falling: Diary of a Call Girl Suicide by AJ Ullman
Four Stars

Drifting Falling: Diary of a Call Girl Suicide is a heartbreaking story by AJ Ullman. This is the first book I have read by AJ Ullman, but definitely won’t be the last. This book captures all of the pain and disappointment of a young woman with a dark and troubled past. This book was deeply moving and hard to read at times, but I think AJ did a really good job of bring the issues of depression and suicide to light. I would recommend this book and look forward to reading more from this author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Accountability by Jessica Aiken-Hall
Five Stars

Accountability is the third book in the Scope of Practice series by Jessica Aiken-Hall. This series should be read in order to get the full backstory. I would have recommend that read them all anyway because they are all excellent. This book had me hooked on the very first page. This book is filled with mystery and suspense. It had me up all night just to see how it would end. Valerie is a very intriguing character with secrets in her past, but the are coming out in this book.this series is my favorite so far this year.

On With the Butter! Spread More Living onto Everyday Life by Heidi Herman – Review by Sunday Barnaby

On With The Butter! Spread More Living onto Everyday Life by Heidi Herman
Five Stars

On With The Butter is an inspirational / self help bookby Heidi Herman. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Herman, but I’m going to be checking a few more out in the near future.

This book actually got me thinking and may change my life, if I can stick to some of Ms. Herman’s philosophies. Last year, I was diagnosed with cancer. I went through the treatment and am now cancer free for about nine months. However, the treatments weren’t so friendly with my body. I was thinking a lot this past month about being fifty three years old and unable to move around like I used to even two years ago. My life consists mostly of working 10-12 hour days coming home watching tv and sleeping. With the pandemic, my husband and I don’t even go out to dinner anymore. I was thinking the other day, I need to make so e changes, and reading this book gave me some great ideas. I’m not an outdoor person, but the hobbies and book club ideas sound wonderful. Trying something new sounds like a breath of fresh air.

Thank you Ms. Herman for giving me all of these new ideas to enhance my life. I’m ready to change my focus from all work and no play to finding things I enjoy and indulging myself. Life is too short to continually be weighed down by the daily grind. I look forward to putting some of you lists to good use. This is an excellent guide to make a happier me. Thank you again for sharing your knowledge.

Enchanted Passion is the fourth book in the Protectors series by Toya Richardson. This paranormal romance hooked me from the very first page. I couldn’t put it down.you can read this book as a standalone, but I recommend you read the whole series. The books are all fantastic and you will get a backstory. Luna and Rhys have great chemistry. This is a fast paced story, and my only problem was I finished it too soon. If you love paranormal romance, this is the series for you.

Composed: An Ash Park Novel (Volume 8)Composed: An Ash Park Novel by Meghan O’Flynn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Composed by Meghan O’Flynn
Five Stars

Composed is the eighth book in the Ash Park series by Meghan O’Flynn. This whole Series is amazing! If you like murder mystery and psychological thriller’s that are portrayed in brutal and graphic detailed then I highly recommend this book and series to you. The scenes are detailed and the story is mind boggling. These books always keep me guessing until the end. Detective Petrosky is back and this case turns personal when his police chief goes missing. This book can be read as a standalone, but if you love this genre you are going to want to read this whole series.

Alligators in the Trees by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Sunday Barnaby

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alligators in the Trees by Cynthia Hamilton
Four Stars

Alligators in the Trees was a great story following three different people who work or frequent Frank’s Coffee Shop. All are unique characters and the plot is extraordinarily detailed, and so very interesting. Once I started reading I couldn’t put it down until the end. I enjoyed meeting and following Tobias, Philip and Priscilla through their problems, decision making and life changing processes as they find a way to love their lives again. This story was a truly enjoyable adventure. Cynthia Hamilton did a great job with this book and I look forward to reading more books by her in the future.
