A Dangerous Deal by Philippa Jane Keyworth – Review

Philippa Jane Keyworth’s newest novel, A Dangerous Deal, offers readers a romance for the ages. A book full of strong female characters and the men who love them. This volume is the second in the Ladies of Worth series.

Haunted by Tessa Buckley – Review

Tessa Buckley’s newest novel, Haunted, is a delightful mystery for middle-grade students. This book is the second in the Eye Spy series. Tessa’s story had me all in a dither. I kept guessing who the culprit was yet didn’t figure it out until close to the end. My hunches failed me with this one.

Necessarily Evil: Subversion by Shad N. Freud – Review

Once again, readers journey through the Divine Sitcom with Necessarily Evil: Subversion. Shad Freud delivers this fifth volume of the series with the gloves off. Long-time favorites suffer while the bad guys run amok. Some of the characters we barely got to know.

Nine Lives by Kevin McManus – Review

The second book of the Ray Logue series, Nine Lives, is a crime reader’s dream. Kevin McManus offers an excellent follow-up to Death Rains Down. If anything, this novel is even better. I will never figure out how McManus fits so much adrenaline-filled magic in such a short volume.

Captivating the Cynical Earl by Catherine Tinley – Review

Catherine Tinley made me laugh, cry, and seethe with her new novel Captivating the Cynical Earl. This book is another Harlequin Historical novel that stole my heart, one where I found a home. This volume is one of many in a series. After reading this, I know I must read the rest before my brain will rest.
