The Waiting Room by Emily Bleeker

The Waiting Room by Emily Bleeker

I love Emily Bleeker! I have all of her books. And even though I got a copy of The Waiting Room in return for a review, as soon as I finished reading it I pre-ordered it for my permanent library. This is one of those twisty-turny psychological suspense type stories that happens inside the head of Veronica Shelton. Her husband is dead, her daughter is missing, and weird stuff keeps happening. I spent a good portion of this book trying to determine if she was […]

The Kitty Committee by Kathryn Berla

The Kitty Committee by Kathryn Berla

Dark & Twisty Amazon needs to add a new genre category: dark and twisty. I generally like twisty. I love it when I can’t figure things out until the very end. Dark, I have a love/hate relationship, depending on what exactly makes it dark. Told in first person, Grace goes back and forth between memories of “something” that happened during her high school years to the results of that event that follow her to college and beyond. Sometimes when a story does that, it becomes […]

Review + Giveaway: Veins of Gold by Charlie N. Holmberg

Review + Giveaway: Veins of Gold by Charlie N. Holmberg

A Mixed-Genre Novel Veins of Gold doesn’t fit neatly into one unique genre. It’s set in Utah during the Gold Rush Era (1848–1855). The details are clear enough that it could be labeled a Historical novel, or even an alternate history. As such, the reader gets a great look into what that time and place was like—the mountains, the desert, small Utah town, and even a peek at Mormon culture (but there is no preaching in this book). It also contains magic—a mix of earth […]

The Rogue Queen by Emily R. King

The Rogue Queen by Emily R. King

This is book three in a series, and unfortunately, I have not reviewed the first two books. But here is a quick summary of the first two. If you don’t care about this, skip down to the section titled “Great Characters, Great Plot!” The Hundredth Queen (#1): As an orphan ward of the Sisterhood in the ancient Tarachand Empire, eighteen-year-old Kalinda is destined for nothing more than a life of seclusion and prayer. Plagued by fevers, she’s an unlikely candidate for even a servant’s position, […]

The Wrong Side of Magic by Janette Rallison

The Wrong Side of Magic by Janette Rallison

I am a HUGE fan of Janette Rallison! I love Janette Rallison as an author. I have loved every book that she’s written. So when I was contacted about doing a review for the release of The Wrong Side of Magic, of course I said YES! But. Then my day job went nuts and I haven’t had a chance to read it yet, which makes me sad. So instead of a review, I’m going to post a short excerpt from the book. And also tell […]

Sweet 1920s Romance Novella Set in 1926, extremely shy Jane Martin is a member of the local Aid and Cultural Society. As part of a cultural exchange, the group decides to write to members of a similar society in Canada, becoming “letter friends” (or as we would call it, pen pals).

Parrish by Shannen Crane Camp

Parrish by Shannen Crane Camp

A Supernatural, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance Mystery Story! I loved every bit of this story about this ghost-hunting foursome. Parrish, Sadie, Brighton, and Deacon are awesome in their quirky uniqueness. Seriously, these are characters that I loved hanging out with, even if they weren’t doing anything but sitting around shooting the breeze. (Although, they do plenty.) There’s quite a bit of genre-mixing in this story, which for me just added to the enjoyment. First, this is a supernatural story because GHOSTS! And there are plenty […]

The Girl Who Heard Demons by Janette Rallison

The Girl Who Heard Demons by Janette Rallison

A YA Suspense with Paranormal Elements Based on the title, I was expecting horror; based on the author (I’ve read her before), I was expecting it to be mild. While there are mild horror elements (because, demons), for me, this read more like a suspense story that just happens to have paranormal abilities thrown in. Yes, Adelle hears demons, and yes, they are slimy and a little freaky. Through the course of the story, she eventually sees and hears angels, as well. But the meat […]

First Light by Michele Paige Holmes

First Light by Michele Paige Holmes

A Unique & Enchanting Mixed-Up Fairy Tale! I went into this blind. Other than knowing First Light was a Young Adult fairy tale romance by Michele Paige Holmes, an author I’ve previously enjoyed, I didn’t know what to expect. I was pleasantly entertained and enthralled throughout! First Light is not a straightforward retelling of a traditional fairy tale. There were some common elements—good and evil fairies, three wishes, a heroine who doesn’t know her true identity—but the way they were woven together made it fresh […]

Solstice by Jane Redd

Solstice by Jane Redd

An Awesome YA Dystopian/Romance! I love this type of story—young adult characters trying to survive post-disaster. In Solstice, the disaster is climate change—nearly constant rain and flooding. I would DIE in this world! The political/community setting is typical dystopian, a society where the adults are controlling (and ruining) everything. The basic conceptis emotion control via implanted chips. Although the chip thing has been done before, I still really liked it. I had high hopes for this story line, and guess what? It met all of […]
