Christmas At Cade Ranch - Karen Rock Review

Hello all, 

Some early Christmas cheer for you. I recommend this before the holidays roll around. Its a must have! I want to thank Karen Rock for giving me the honour of letting me review this great book for her. I can't shout enough from the rooftops about how great she is. So check out her review and tell me what you think!


Christmas At Cade Ranch- Karen Rock

James Cade has one priority: keep the family ranch running smoothly in the wake of his younger brother's death. With Jesse's ex, Sofia Gallardo, and her young son, Javi, stranded at Cade Ranch over Christmas, this task just got a lot harder. The longer Sofia and Javi stay, the harder it is to imagine the ranch without them. James couldn't save his brother from his inner demons, but he can give his nephew a secure future. Maybe more—if he can figure out how to trust Sofia, and stop feeling like he's betraying Jesse. Because trying to stop thinking about beautiful, determined Sofia is impossible.

5/5  Stars
Review

From the outset this book gripped me and held me from start to finish. The emotional story of Sofia was one that wasn't easy to forget and the desire to see Javi happy pulled at my heartstrings. I was dying to see how this played out and couldn't wait until the end. I was totally blown away by what came at the end and the hurdles that James has to overcome with the help of Sofia is enough to make anyone fall for cowboys. I have to say I found myself wondering about these great characters. 

There is nothing not to love in this book and there are so many people that will be touched by this story. It's not just a great romance, grief, tear jerker but a super warm and desirable one. Please find the buy links below and know that you will be filled with more of the Christmas spirit than before.

Rattle (DS Fitzroy 1) By Fiona Cummins Review

Hello All, 

I'm getting to the last of the books I completed in hospital. I have to say this one was one that I couldn't put down. This isn't my genre but stumbling on it I decided to give it a shot and I fell in love with Fiona Cummins. Anyway wait till you see what I think and maybe it might get you to give this author a chance. 



Rattle 
By
Fiona Cummins

'It's a rare debut that has this much polish. Harrowing and horrifying, head and shoulders above most of the competition' - Val McDermid
A serial killer to chill your bones
A psychopath more frightening than Hannibal Lecter.
He has planned well. He leads two lives. In one he's just like anyone else. But in the other he is the caretaker of his family's macabre museum.
Now the time has come to add to his collection. He is ready to feed his obsession, and he is on the hunt.
Jakey Frith and Clara Foyle have something in common. They have what he needs.
What begins is a terrifying cat-and-mouse game between the sinister collector, Jakey's father and Etta Fitzroy, a troubled detective investigating a spate of abductions.
Set in London's Blackheath, Rattle by Fiona Cummins explores the seam of darkness that runs through us all; the struggle between light and shadow, redemption and revenge.
It is a glimpse into the mind of a sinister psychopath. And it's also a story about not giving up hope when it seems that all hope is already lost.

Review - 5/5

I have to say that first off the title says it all!

"Rattle" my bones it did and it was so well put together that I was surprised to find myself falling in love with something I usually don't read. This gave me a moment to pause as I found myself unable to put it down and how I found myself pulling for the little children in this book. The setting of a hospital was also something that made me bite my lip a lot. Might want to read this on Halloween as its a great one to get you nervous and your stomach doing all sort of things. 

I have to say that the set up for the second novel was perfectly done and this book will rival the works of Rachel Caine who released "Stillhouse Lake". I look forward to seeing how she develops this going forward.

Stillhouse Lake By Rachel Caine Review

Hello all, 

So I have to say that I enjoyed this book greatly and the fact I have been a supporter of Rachel Caine has nothing to do with it. She is a wonderful author and her work has stood out strong against the great material that is coming out in this genre. I think this could be bigger than people give it credit for. 

Stillhouse Lake 
By
Rachel Caine

Gina Royal is the definition of average—a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband’s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor—the ultimate warrior mom.

With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband’s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace.

But just when she’s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake—and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed—or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she’s learned how to fight evil. And she’ll never stop.

Review 
5/5

Chilling and well worth reading as I held my breath at several points. I have to say I fell in love with the characters in this book and wanted nothing more than to root for them. Rachel Caine hid the murder well right up to the last second. I have to say I fell in love with how she made the puzzle pieces to slip together. I have to say that I'm honoured to have read this book and seen how her writing has gone so well, easily from Young Adult Fantasy to this genre. 

There is nothing I found wrong with this book at all and that is rare for me. It was what I needed when sitting in the hospital and it got me out of my reading slump. I have to say that I can't wait to see what else these series have to offer. I pre-ordered this one as I can't wait to see the next piece of the journey.

Queen of Shadows By Sarah J Maas Review

Hello,

It's taken me a lot longer to finish this book but I wouldn't have wanted to read anything else while I went through my double joint replacement surgery. Keep reading for the rest of my thoughts.

Queen of Shadows 
By 
Sarah J Maas

Sarah J. Maas's New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series reaches new heights in this sweeping fourth instalment.
Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. Now she returns to the empire - to confront the shadows of her past ...
Bloodthirsty for revenge on the two men responsible for destroying her life, and desperate to find out if the prince and his captain are safe, Celaena returns to Rifthold, the seat of so much evil. She has accepted her identity as Aelin Galathynius, Queen of Terrasen. But before she can reclaim her throne, there are dark truths to learn and debts to be paid. Aelin must stay hidden beneath her assassin's hood and draw on her mortal strength as Celaena to prevent the King of Adarlan from tearing her world apart. Only then can she fight for her people.
Readers will be held rapt as Celaena's story builds to an agonising crescendo, packed with heart-pounding action and swoon-worthy romance.

5/5 stars

This is just as the blurb makes you shiver. It's exciting, enthralling and great if you want to get lost in another world. She was able to make a great ending for this book when things look so direr for all the characters in it. I like how she introduced a new character that connects Manor and Aelin more to each other than before. A lot of the fears in this book about how she was going to come to a well rounded ending for the series are shaken off and Sarah makes this look easy. There is very few people that can do that and this is the reason why Sarah  J Maas should be put down as a great author for the YA genre.

Amanda MacKey 's True Identity

Hello All, 

Today its my pleasure to introduce you to a wonderful writer that is coming out of New Zealand. I hope to have a print copy from her signed when I get a chance. Anyway check out what Limitless Publishing is offering you and enjoy. 

LIMITLESS PUBLISHING, LLC – Marketing Dept.

TRUE IDENTITY by Amanda Mackey 
The Lost and Found Series, #1 
Release Date: August 15, 2017
Limitless Publishing, LLC

BLURB:
I don’t know who I am. 

I can’t remember my name, where I come from, or how I ended up in the hospital with a bullet wound to my chest. When I think back, searching for a memory, all I see is a big black hole of nothing.

But I recall her voice…the sweet, angelic sound that reached out to me through the coffin of black, pulling me back to the light. 

I might not know anything about my past, my life, my identity—but the moment I opened my eyes and stared straight into hers, I knew I wanted her. I knew there was no way in hell I would let her go. 

Now I need to piece back together the missing fragments of my life so I can figure out where she fits into it—or if she fits into it at all.

The only problem is if your past is buried beneath a shroud of darkness, you have no idea when it might come back to haunt you.

The Knight's Broken Promise By Nicole Locke

Hello All,

Here is a quick look into the latest historical romance I have been reading. This time we are in Scotland and we are about to see something that was rare in its time.

The Knight's Broken Promise
By
Nicole Locke

BLACK ROBERT. THE MOST FEARED OF ALL KING EDWARD’S MEN…
When an English knight approaches the charred ruins of her sister’s Scottish village, Gaira of Clan Colquhoun knows better than to trust this fierce-looking man.
Yet, struggling to set her war-shaken world to rights, she has little choice.
Robert of Dent will see her to safety. He can promise nothing more. Never again will he make a vow like the one he broke years ago, even though Gaira’s fierce resilience makes him long to protect her.
But what will happen when Gaira discovers exactly who Robert is… ?


5/5 Stars 
Review

I was super nervous when I got this book out as it's based in Scotland like I am. Sometimes when it's not Scottish authors writing about a historical romance it doesn't always work. Nicole Locke surprised me. She understood the honour that we have, the need to protect children from anything that might cause them harm and the meaning of family. Especially in a time when brother fought brother. It is nice to see that she was able to capture that and the passion of a Scottish woman in the form of her heroine. There is so much to this book that its not like a normal historical romance. 

There is a passion within the Englishmen that doesn't over power the story. There is a sense of duty that the English use to have that comes through very well in this. I think she managed to balance the two characters really well and was delighted to see how it turned out. 

I do recommend it to those who want a funny, passionate and realistic Scottish historical romance.
