Paranormal/Witch Cozy Mystery
Date Published: September 5, 2017

Andie Taylor is your average single mom. She's got a beautiful toddler, a great job at the local preschool, a neurotic best friend and one huge secret—she used to hunt vampires. Now retired, Andie would much rather be wiping kid snot off her clothes than stalking the undead.

But after a meteor rips through her small town, strange things start happening—like the school janitor is found dead with fang marks in his neck.
Andie's retired, it's not her problem.

Until vampires attack Andie on her front lawn. Now she has to figure out who the head bloodsucker is and stop him from taking any more victims—all while juggling single motherhood, a crazy great aunt, and Andie's own lust for a fallen angel. Can she solve the mystery before the vampires claim someone else? Or will she become the next target of the bloodsuckers?



Review


Another great Paranormal Mystery from Amy Boyle!

I love Amy's writing style. She pens quirky and fun leads who don't mess around. Andie is no different. 

I loved the mystery element to this novel. I felt like it kept me on my toes. 

Characters and plot are both well developed. 

Overall a great addition to the Paranormal bookshelf!

Dallas Anderson is stuck in a time loop that repeats Labor Day 2001 to September 11, 2001. He thinks he must prevent the terrorist attacks to break the loop. But each loop challenges that theory, igniting a fiery romance between him and his best friend's sister and exposing the dark truth behind Déjà vu.







Review

James Fant has characterization down to a science. His characters really run the show and make the story so fun to read about. 

This was a very action packed Historical Fiction Novel that definitely kept me flipping pages. There were surprises along the way that definitely shocked me. Anything but predictable. 

Great pacing and a well written storyline.

Book Tour: The Knights of Boo'Gar by Art Roche #review



Middle Grade Humor, ages 7 to 12
Date Published: April 4, 2017
Publisher: Andrews McMeel / AMP! Kids

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Princess Phlema’s pet goat Babycakes has been kidnapped from Castle Boo’Gar, and the ransom note demands the kingdom’s sacred Book of Loogey in exchange for the goat’s safe return. King Mewkus summons the Knights of Boo’Gar to track down the kidnappers, but the Knights have been on furlough for so long that only one person responds to the call: a 13-year-old boy named Rowland. Undaunted by the lack of reinforcements, Rowland agrees to take on the quest, enlisting the help of his pet turtle and his trusty steed, who happens to be an ostrich. While Rowland treks through the Dark Woods, encountering dangerous obstacles and fearsome creatures, Princess Phlema takes matters into her own hands.

The Knights of Boo’Gar is a quirky adventure set in an engaging world of heroes, nose goblins, a spunky princess, giant bats and way too many cantaloupes. Packed with full-color illustrations, this wacky chapter book emphasizes the importance of friendship, bravery and is a delightfully easy read for kids and grown-ups alike.

Review



 I think that Art Roche really managed to keep his readers engaged with these characters the entire way through.

There were many surprises and the way that the author was able to keep the pacing just right really helps everything flow naturally.

The humor was such a driving force in this novel. It kept the tone light and kept me laughing. 

A great Young Adult read!

Jagged Edge Series #7
Romance, Erotica
Date Published: September 12, 2017

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Working hard to graduate at the top of her class and becoming the best FBI agent had finally paid off for Agent Gabrielle Jackson. Selected to head one of the most important operations of her career, the unexpected happens when Jagged Edge Security is brought in to assist. The thing that Gabrielle needed was to be attracted to one the men. Trying to keep her distance, she soon finds that she can no longer resist the charm of Michael Chavez. Soon that all changes when she finds that her past has a connection to the operation and the only person on her side is him.

Working with a woman like Gabrielle Jackson was something that Michael Chavez hadn’t counted on. Even with her cheeky Latino attitude, she was the sexiest woman he had ever met and he had to have her. Just when he thought his night of bliss would lead to more, she halts his efforts by turning their night of romance into a one-night stand. When things begin to surface and the truth is revealed, there is no stopping Chavez from getting what he wants.

About the Author


My love for writing began several years ago after an early retirement from a demanding job that I loved, but also hated because it consumed so much of my time. Now, I am able to focus my time on what I love. Writing romance has been a life long dream and to actually say that I am a published author is beyond what I would have ever expected.

Even though some may say I have a little naughtiness in my books, I look at it as an added bonus for my readers. After all what is a romance book without a little spice.

When I am not writing, I enjoy spending time with friends either at home or out on the town. Mostly, I enjoy a relaxing night at home where I can enjoy a glass of wine in the company of a good book.

Published: July 19, 2017
Publisher: Double Dragon Publishing

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

On a settlement planet far into the future the worldwide economic crash has turned New Stockton into a city broken by political corruption and pervasive organized crime. Scotland Murrow’s journalist father has gone missing while investigating a twelve year old murder case. The victim was found with an encrypted file, known as the Nostradamus Code, imbedded in his thumbnail leading Scotland to believe that the file contains the secret to his father’s fate. Aided by his reformed junkie friend and a journalist who may have her own secret agenda Scotland scours the city’s seedy underbelly, traverses the unchartered outlands and breaches a fortified Citadel as he peels away layer upon layer of the Nostradamus Code to confront his biggest fears and uncover a plot to bring down the most powerful man on the planet.




Review

This novel had a lot of heart and a lot of action. Scotland is an interesting lead.

I found the plot to be riveting with plenty of twists and turns, drama, and much more along the way. 


The writing style was fluid and fast paced, which I really enjoyed!

I highly recommend this one to any YA Sci-Fi junkies like me!

Book Tour: Dead Cold by @jchasenovelist with my #review #thriller



Crime Thriller
Date Published: July 2, 2017
Publisher: JEC Press

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Every Emily Stone Thriller is a stand-along novel.


From the multi-award winning series:

What happens when one California community has a disturbing spike in homicides? It catapults cops into a deadly game of murder. Frozen human body parts hideously displayed at the crime scenes offers a horrifying interpretation that only a sadistic serial killer could design—and execute.

On the hunt for a complex serial killer, vigilante detective Emily Stone must face her most daring case yet. Stone’s proven top-notch profiling skills and forensic expertise may not be enough this time.

Young and ambitious, Detective Danny Starr, catches the homicide cases and discovers that it will test everything he knows about police work and the criminal mind. Can he handle these escalating cases or will the police department have to call in reinforcements—the FBI.

Emily Stone’s covert team pushes with extreme urgency to unravel the grisly clues, while keeping their identities hidden from the police. With one last-ditch effort, Stone dangles someone she loves as bait to draw out the killer. She then forces the killer out of their comfort zone with her partner Rick Lopez, and with help from a longtime friend Jordan Smith. A revelation of the serial killer’s identity leaves the team with volatile emotions that could destroy them.

The killer continues to taunt and expertly manipulate the police, as well as Stone’s team, and as they run out of time—they leave behind everyone and everything—in Dead Cold.


My Review

First of all, that blurb completely drew me in. I was pleasantly surprised by the way Jennifer Chase was able to keep me on my toes.

I loved the fact that this was a Thriller, but the author was able to create real emotion and have the reader tap into that. The main characters is very strong and easy to love.

I  love reading thrillers and trying to figure out what could possibly come next.  Jennifer Chase has really created an imaginative thriller that has plenty of twists and surprises.
