Children's Review
The Trickster - L. G. Miles,Amy Miles The Trickster - L. G. Miles,Amy Miles

I received this book to give an honest review.

 

So I didn't end up reading this to K I read it by myself because I wasn't sure if it would be too scary for him or not. Honestly I think for K he would enjoy this book. The reason I am giving it a 4 star rating is well honestly it kind of reminded me of IT with the so called scary clown. 

We start off the story in 1905 where we learn that there is a staff with a dragon head involved. Okay I can see where this is going. Fast forward a bit and we are now with the children Tommy, Jack and Becky. They decide to go to the house where an old lady passed away to investigate what they uncover is a ghost story. It seems that there is a Trickster ghost and he is somehow tied to the house that he haunts.

 

Now for kids this is a good story especially to read towards Halloween I didn't think it was scary in anyway but yet in a kids mind I am sure they might get a small scare so to speak. As far as characters go they are young 12 year old's so I can't relate to them in anyway but I am sure K can especially with their curiosity.

An okay read
Not Sorry - Ella Miles Not Sorry - Ella Miles

Not Sorry by Ella Miles is an entertaining read.  Ms. Miles has given us a well-written book.  It is in alternating point of view format, which I'm not a fan of, but that's a personal preference.  From the blurb I expected more humor in this book, that's probably the most disappointing thing about the book for me.  The humor is there in the beginning, not so much after that.  Sean and Olive's story has enough drama and smokin' hot sex to hold a reader's attention and it kept me reading.  My favorite thing about the book is the characters.  I know this sounds like a crappy review, but I did enjoy reading Not Sorry.  Not as much as I thought I would, but I did enjoy it.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.

The Angel (Imogen Grey and Adrian Miles)... The Angel (Imogen Grey and Adrian Miles) - Katerina Diamond

With thanks to Netgalley and Avon books for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.

 

First I have mentioned this before but I love the cover art on Katerina Diamond's books.  If feel as though I could cut my finger on that broken glass.  The Angel is the third book in the DS Imogen Grey and Adrian Miles series.

 

19 year old Gabriel Shaw is a goth who does not get along with his parents.  Gabriel set fire to a waste paper bin in a disused railway signal box which resulted in a huge fire.  Unbeknowst to him a man was sleeping rough downstairs and he perished in the fire.  Gabriel admitted to starting the fire but claimed he put it out before leaving the signal box.  Gabriel is remanded in custody for arson and is disowned by his parents.  Imogen and Adrian are sure Gabriel is innocent and try to search for the homeless man.

 

In another case Patty Wallis and her husband are brutally murdered in their own home.  A strange symbol drawn in blood is on the wall.  When a video of the murder is posted on the internet Imogen's boyfriend Dean Kincaid recognises the symbol but he can't remember from where.

 

At the end of The Secret DS Miles had discovered that his son Tom's stepfather Dominic Shaw was a crook possibly involved in human trafficking.  When Adrian finds out the Wallis's son made donations to Dominic's company he becomes convinced that Shaw is involved in the murders.  When Dominic arranges for Adrian's girlfriend to be murdered and then framed for the crime he decides to run away.

 

I enjoyed the POV of Gabriel during his time on remand.  When Gabriel's family and girlfriend are threatened by a prisoner he has to find a way to protect them.

 

Diamond has yet again weaved another dark, complex tale with multiple threads that are neatly tied in a bow by the end of the book.  Diamond is a wonderful storyteller who is now one of my go to authors I can trust.  I recommend you read the whole series to understand the history of Grey and Miles.

The Winter Wedding Plan (Misty Point) by Olivia Miles
The Winter Wedding Plan: An unforgettable story of love, betrayal, and sisterhood (Misty Point) - Olivia Miles

 

When you hit rock bottom, there's no place to go but up.  Charlotte is quickly learning that it's much easier to screw up your life, but not as easy to rebuild it.  Learning to be mature has never been her strong suit, but she's willing to try for the sake of her daughter and the love of her sister.  For a chance at redemption she's willing to risk everything.  Including her heart.  Ms. Miles introduced Charlotte in One Week to the Wedding.  The woman with a chip on her shoulder and a lot of hurt in her heart has become a better person by learning how to forgive and love.  The Winter Wedding Plan is another jewel in the crown that is Olivia Miles.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Hard Miles (Chisholm Falls #1) by Trish Arcangelo
Hard Miles - Trish Arcangelo
Hard Miles starts off with Laurel in a gas station. She is on the run from her ex, he has been beaten up after she 'snitched' on him to a drugs dealer and he wants to repay her! She is in her clapped-out old car, with just enough money to get her who-knows-where. Things take a turn for the worse (or better) when she is involved in a robbery at the gas station. She is saved from a bullet by the 'bad boy' she had her eye on, before she told herself she wasn't interested in anyone at this point - bad boy or not. Jase was immediately attracted to the woman at the gas station, but having lived under a cloud for so long, he is sure that she wouldn't be interested. Following the robbery, their lives become intertwined, with a little bit of help (read interference) from his loving big sister.
 
This was a nice and easy story to read, with enough angst to satisfy, without it overtaking the story and becoming superfluous. There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pace was smooth, and the storyline itself rolled along, with enough information being given so you stay fully involved with the story. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and I can't wait to see who is next. Absolutely recommended by me.
