By Valerie Davisson
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the book VANISHING DAY (A Logan McKenna Mystery Book 4) by Valerie Davisson. It is a story that once I started, I was hooked. It is a book that includes mystery, suspense, and danger. The more stories that I read in this series, the more I grow to love the character of Logan. She is a woman who is intelligent, strong-willed, and once she is faced with a mystery is determined to find out the truth. This book has Logan’s neighbor attacked with her three-year-old daughter the only witness. Logan may hold a clue to that attack. Is the attacker going to now come after Logan? Logan’s neighbor is in the ICU. Will she recover? Read this book to find out what happens. This is a story that had me turning pages wondering what was going to happen next. The author writes with such detail that I feel like I am right there with the characters. Some of the additional characters in this book have been brought forward from the first three stories. Logan has a wonderful group of friends who care about her. Don’t miss out on a story that is exciting and entertaining. I highly recommend reading it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another great story from this series. I always love the facts we learn about different things in each book. This one was no different, as we learn about sea otters!
Where there is Logan, there is trouble and this one didn’t disappoint. Probably my favorite of the series so far! I wont be givibg many details away as I don’t want to spoil the story.
Can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading in order as to get the whole experience that is Logan McKenna.

This is the fourth book in this series. I have read all the books in this series and they just keep getting better and better. They bring action, suspense and mystery to a new level. This is a well developed story that has characters that bring the story alive. I was pulled into this story right from the beginning and was kept engaged to the end. It is a fast paced story that has twists and turns that kept me turning pages. The characters are connectable and supportive of each other. Logan is back in another investigation. This time she finds that her friend isn’t who she says she is. As her new neighbor clings to life in the hospital, Logan is trying to draw out the killer. The deeper she digs and the deeper she gets and she just may not find her way back out. You don’t want to miss Logan in another suspenseful investigation looking for a killer. Logan is one of my favorite characters. She is strong, determined and nothing gets in her way of finding what she wants. I highly suggest reading the previous books in this series to get to know Logan more. This is an entertaining story that I highly recommend.

DEADLY WEAPON (Jake Wolfe Book 5) by Mark Nolan – Review by Elizabeth Sanchez

Deadly Weapon (Jake Wolfe #5)Deadly Weapon by Mark Nolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Deadly Weapon is the 5th book in the Jake Wolfe series by Mark Nolan. I have read them all, but you don’t have to read them in order. The story definitely continues as far as Jake and Cody’s friendships but there is enough background information provided to enjoy, starting anywhere in the series. I like these books because they are a good suspense with a touch of mystery and humor. When I first started, I thought it was weird how Nolan writes about Cody’s feelings and thoughts, but now I’m used it it and it doesn’t phase me. This story hits a little too close to home, with COVID 19 happening right now. At the end of the book the author does say how he started this book long before the epidemic started. However, a lot of the details are close to the conspiracy theories out there. Over all, well written book and great addition to the series. Highly recommend it.

by Mark Nolan

What a great read!! I have been enjoying this series from the beginning. I love reading about the adventure that Jake and Cody find themselves on. This book is full of action, danger, suspense, twists and turns and so much more. I was happy to see that characters from the other books were brought to this one. It’s always a pleasure to read the pages that have Cody talking. I found myself on the edge of my seat throughout most of this book. The author is an exceptional writer that keeps me entertained and I find it impossible to put the book down until I finish it. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. I highly recommend this book.

Wow I really enjoyed book 5 the Deadly weapon than the other books in this series. I have always liked Jake and Cody and how resilient they can be in minutes. These characters are amazing and the plot is intense.
Jake and Cody are in trouble yet again trying to save the world. It seems like every time Jake takes a vacation its always cut short. Jake is Alaska visiting his friend Tuktu, a fellow combat veteran, now has a fishing guide business. While fishing Jake and Cody her something and look up and see helicopter come into view, and its coming in fast and he knows something is up.
He checks his phone and notices a few missed calls and when he answers McKay asks if she can trust him and the next thing you know he is cutting his trip short to head back. After Loading the helicopter, they find Ron one of the best pilots around was with Ron was with Tuktu in Somalia.
Where is Jake going? Can he catch the bad guys before they set of the deadly weapon that will destroy the word?
You will have to read this story in can be read as a standalone but I advise to read all the books in this series….

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Devil’s Claw is the third book in Valerie Davisson’s Logan McKenna series as well as the third book I’ve raad by this author. I’ve said it before but I will repeat myself again, I truly enjoy Logan as a strong female lead and this time around I enjoyed the inclusion of her daughter as well. While any of these books can be read as stand alone reads, I recommend reading in order. Not only does this allow for more character depth, the books really are worth it.
Valerie Davisson has a way of bringing real life issues to light while delivering a story that is filled with enough action and intrigue to keep you turning from first page to last. I truly look forward to more from this author… and more Logan McKenna. 4 out of 5 stars for sure!

Deadly Weapon (Jake Wolfe #5)Deadly Weapon by Mark Nolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Deadly Weapon is the fifth book in Mark Nolan’s Jake Wolfe series and Jake and Cody are back to save the world! They are in Alaska for some hard earned time out, fishing salmon and taking in the awesomeness that is Alaska. Jake has turned off the rest of the world so it is just him, Cody and his friend Tuktu … but obviously, like always, something goes wrong and their services are needed … this time to stop rouge operatives who are working on a weapon of mass destruction. You can read the story as a standalone as the writer gives us a story in its own rights in each of the books but as there are characters that you meet from story to story and you will want to be part of the journey that Jake and Cody are on then I suggest you start from the beginning … I promise you will fall in love with both Jake and Cody and even if you are not so fond of dogs, you dream of having a dog like Cody so in this story I am really excited about Cody’s puppies!
The story pulls you in from chapter 1 and you are thrown up in the air on a halo that takes you on one heck of a ride filled with action and danger and assassins while dodging hidden agendas and explosions … I love how the writer utilises the multiple POV’s as it helps us to go even deeper into the storyline, the extensive research he does for each of his Jake Wolfe books is mind blowing so that means every story I read I constantly keep pinching myself and I find myself wondering what if … Thank you for these tense suspense filled hours and I cannot wait to see what is next in store for Jake and Cody (and Sarah and Skye)!

DEADLY WEAPON (Jake Wolfe Book 5) by Mark Nolan – Review by Francis O’Sullivan

Deadly Weapon (Jake Wolfe #5)Deadly Weapon by Mark Nolan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Deadly Weapon is the fifth action-packed adventure in Mark Nolan’s Jake Wolfe series. Jake is a former marine who can’t seem to sit still (or in this case, fish in peace) without getting roped into some top secret, high stakes mission. His service dog, Cody, is also a former marine and his training makes him an indispensable part of the team.
The plot of Deadly Weapon centres around a biological weapon involving a deadly and highly contagious virus. So if you’re looking for a book that will take your mind off COVID-19, this ain’t it. But it’s a good story and for me being very aware of the damage a virus like that can do and how slow the process is to find a vaccine enhanced the tension and urgency of the story.
I really like Cody, the dog. He’s very characterful and loveable! I particularly like the scenes that are from Cody’s point of view (the whole story uses third person over-the-shoulder narration, moving occasionally between different perspectives). From Cody’s perspective, we encounter the world primarily through scent and are reminded of his loyalty and drive to carry out his orders.
In Deadly Weapon, we get to visit some great places including Alaska and Hawaii. In amongst the action, it’s lovely to get a sense of different scenery (and food!).
For me, this is a five star book. I’d recommend this to dog people who enjoy fast-paced action! If you’re particularly after a virus-themed story this works fine as a standalone, but it’s an enjoyable series so why not check out the other books as well!

Remember My Name (Remember My Name Series Book 1) by Laurencia Hoffman – Review by Kerry Carr

Remember My NameRemember My Name by Laurencia Hoffman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow this was a story I wasn’t expecting but I really enjoyed. It was an emotional roller coaster.

Shane has suffered in his life, from abuse at the hands of his father to the heartbreak of his first love and other losses and heartbreak in between. All this has turned Shane into a cold, hard person who is happier pushing people away than confiding in them.

When he bumps into his first love Callen again they want to rekindle their failed relationship but with Shane holding so many secrets and being so hard to get close to will Callen be able to break down his walls and boundaries or will the constant coldness end up pushing Callen away for good.

Its a strong emotional story and shows that secrets and heartbreak can cause a person to change. It also shows that sometimes keeping secrets isn’t the right way to deal with things.
