Blogging For Book Review: The Road To Paradise by Karen Barnett

Blogging For Book Review: The Road To Paradise by Karen Barnett

My Thoughts I loved this book and everything about it. It was wonderfully written, with characters that are real-to-life, a setting that will sweep you away to the Mount Ranier National Park and a plot that will leave you dying for more of this talented authors work. It was such a fabulous feeling reading this book.  This novel is a mix of historical and beautiful scenes. I felt as though I was right there with Margie and the Rangers, looking at the parks in front of them. I loved feeling as though the author was writing the story just for me, and gripped me wholly with her wonderful characters, words and messages. These characters, both good and bad, quickly steal your heart and don’t let go until the end! Each page turn brings you further to the heart of Mt. Ranier taking you along for the ride of protecting the park.  This is the first book in Ms. Barnett’s new series and I definitely recommend it with high flying 5 stars! Ms. Barnett is a wonderful author and this book just became one of my top 10 reads for 2017! If you are looking for a book that is chiseled… Read more »

Review: The Illusionist’s Apprentice by Kristy Cambron

Review: The Illusionist’s Apprentice by Kristy Cambron

My Thoughts: This is my first Kristy Cambron book and it most certainly will not be my last. I wasn’t quite sure what to think of it when I got it, and read the synopsis but the cover was very captivating, so I gave it a try. I was not disappointed! In fact, I read this book in less than 48 hours. It was that good. From start to finish, Ms. Cambron creates a captivating plot line that will grip the reader til the end. Following Wren Lockhart literally left me on the edge of my seat, gripping the book, waiting to see what happened next in this beautifully woven tale. It was such a thrilling blend of mystery and intrigue! Ms. Cambron really did a wonderful job on the scenes of history and the characters that came to life. I felt a part of Wren and Agent Matthews’world of Houdini and romance.  If you are looking for a laugh out loud book, don’t look here. If you are looking for a book that is full of detail and mystery, will sweep you off your feet, twist you up, and make you land in a place that you just want to… Read more »

Review: Sunset In Old Savannah by Mary Ellis

Review: Sunset In Old Savannah by Mary Ellis

Holy smokes! Ms. Ellis is amazing! I’m used to reading her Amish books, so when the chance to read her Sunset In Old Savannah novel, I jumped on the chance. I wanted to see her talent at work in a suspenseful genre. It was not disappointing, that’s for sure. I lost myself among the pages of this gripping novel and I wasn’t expecting the ending that I got! I love a book like this. Ms. Ellis created a novel that all readers will love. It’s a touch of romance, Godly messages woven through out, a whole lotta twists, and a dash of humor. Beth and Michael’s characters will quickly work their way into your heart and they will stay there. They will take you on the whirl wind that is investigations, and lead you on a roller coaster ride that is evident with murders. Following Michael and Beth along the streets of Savannah (I’ve been once, and fell in love with the quaint town!) was so much fun! I was definitely on the edge of my seat for each page and stayed up long into the night reading. Ms. Ellis is a wonderful author. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading books… Read more »

Review: Serafina And The Black Cloak by Robert Beatty

Review: Serafina And The Black Cloak by Robert Beatty

I will confess that it’s been quite some time since I read a middle grade/young adult book, but perusing my children’s family night book fair, I came across this book. I read the back of it and noticed one thing. Biltmore. Living in North Carolina, a few hours away from the Biltmore, I thought it would be the perfect dive back into the wonderful world of innocence and fun. I wasn’t wrong! Serafina and The Black Cloak is a wonderful start to Mr. Beatty’s Serafina series. I read this in two sittings and loved every minute of this read! Serafina’s character is wonderful and I loved following her along the halls of the Biltmore Estate. The story is filled with just the right amount of kid-friendly mystery and is perfect for those curious minds that love to seek out clues and solve the puzzle. Serafina’s search for answers on the disappearances within the walls of the magnificently built estate, and the lovely story line, Mr. Beatty has just become my favorite author for books like this. I am already looking forward to reading book 2, Serafina and the Twisted Staff. If it’s anything like this book, it will be just… Read more »

Review of The Murder of King Tut:The Plot To Kill The Child King by James Patterson/Martin Dugard

Review of The Murder of King Tut:The Plot To Kill The Child King by James Patterson/Martin Dugard

About the Book: Since 1922, when Howard Carter discovered Tut’s 3,000-year-old tomb, most Egyptologists have presumed that the young king died of disease, or perhaps an accident, such as a chariot fall. But what if his fate was actually much more sinister? Now, in THE MURDER OF TUT, James Patterson and Martin Dugard chronicle their epic quest to find out what happened to the boy-king. They comb through the evidence–X-rays, Carter’s files, forensic clues–and scavenge for overlooked data to piece together the details of his life and death. The result is a true crime tale of intrigue, betrayal, and usurpation that presents a compelling case that King Tut’s death was anything but natural. About the Author(s): James Patterson published his first thriller in 1976 and since then has become one of the best-known and bestselling writers of all time, with more than 140 million copies of his books sold worldwide. He is the author of the two most popular detective series of the past decade, featuring Alex Cross and the Women’s Murder Club, and he has written numerous other #1 bestsellers. He lives in Florida. Martin Dugard is the New York Times bestselling author of such nonfiction titles as Chasing… Read more »
