Book Review: Susan O’Brian’s Finding Sky

Book Review: Susan O’Brian’s Finding Sky

Susan O’Brian’s debut, Finding Sky, is classified as a mystery and yet it’s not really one. I know when I read a mystery, I expect there to be a murder; hopefully you don’t consider this to be a spoiler because there is none. And unfortunately, that’s just my personal preference when it comes to mysteries and of no fault of O’Brian’s or the publisher, Henery Press.

Book Review: Annette Dashofy’s Circle of Influence

I’ll be truthful, I read Annette Dashofy’s Circle of Influence back in March and this review sadly has been sitting unfinished. Recently Dashofy hit USA Today’s best sellers list and I wanted you to know about her Zoe Chambers series. Plus, I really enjoyed Circle of Influence. We have good character development. Our main character is Zoe Chambers, an EMT who likes to ride horses. She’s tough and can easily hold her own in any situation. Zoe is also very loyal to her friends and she’s the type of person who will drop everything to be there in someone’s time of need. Then we have the ever so yummy head of police, Pete Adams! You’ll love him and understand his frustration at Zoe when she gets involved in investigating. There’s… Read more »
