Book Review: Jessica Lemmon’s If You Dare

Book Review: Jessica Lemmon’s If You Dare

In 2013, Jessica Lemmon wrote, If You Dare, a spooky novella where unrequited love and a bet was at the heart of the story. I really enjoyed it and my only big complaint was the length (I wanted more) because I wanted more of Marcus! Originally published by Entangled as part of their now defunct Flirt line, Lemmon expanded If You Dare and what we have is a full length novel. When Lemmon asked if I’d be interested in reading the new If You Dare, I couldn’t pass up the chance especially since there would be more Marcus! We have really good character development. I liked Lily and it was easy to associate with her. She’s hard working and goal oriented. She also has a no strict dating policy regarding… Read more »

Blog Tour: Review-Paula Brackston’s The Midnight Witch + Giveaway

Paula Brackston is a new author to me and I admit I’ve never heard of her before. When I received an ARC for The Midnight Witch, I was intrigued and part of that has to do with the gorgeous cover (and the hardback is even more beautiful in person!). I had planned to read Brackston’s backlist starting with The Witch’s Daughter before starting The Midnight Witch so I could become familiar with Brackston’s writing, but decided to delve right in. If you’ve never read Brackston’s books it’s not necessary to do in order to enjoy The Midnight Witch. Brackston does a great job explaining terms such as necromancer and other terms related to the paranormal and being unfamiliar with aspects of the paranormal won’t hinder your reading experience. We have… Read more »

Book Review: Darynda Jones’ First Grave on the Right

Book Review: Darynda Jones’ First Grave on the Right

I feel that I owe you a reason as to why I decided to read Darynda Jones’ First Grave on the Right. I attended a local book festival and she was on a panel. She was so much fun and I felt bad I hadn’t read her books and afterwards when I went to have a few books signed for a blog giveaway we talked. I had her sign First Grave and promised I’d read it and did. Initially I wasn’t going to write a review because the book has been out for a while, but Octavia from Read Sleep Repeat wanted a review and here goes. Charley Davidson has a secret and one that’s helped solve some of Albuquerque’s most difficult cases. She’s a grim reaper and as one… Read more »

Book Review: Amy Maurer Jones’ Fly Away

Book Review: Amy Maurer Jones’ Fly Away

Amy Maurer Jones’ Fly Away is the highly anticipated second book in the Wildflower series. If you haven’t read the first book, Wildflower, you can read Fly Away; however, I do recommend reading the first only because it sets up the reincarnation lives of Laney, Joshua, and Jordan and I believe you might be lost otherwise. Fly Away picks up a few months after Wildflower ended and I really appreciated that because it gives us the ability to see exactly what happened during the months after Laney and Joshua ran away. Laney is very much your typical high school student but she’s also a member of the Wampanoag tribe where one day she will be Shaman. In the 17th century she was a member of the tribe and was named… Read more »
