Wallbanger (Cocktail #1) by Alice Clayton Review
Wallbanger - Alice Clayton




There is a lot to like about this romance. I like how the hero and the heroine had to get over thier assummptions about each other. I had to evovle through my manwhore judgements with the heroine. I love the secondary romances. The banter is a ton of fun. The love story had a great friends to lovers aspects. The losing the O problem is well done. The cat. Oh, I love him.


What made it not so great for me is that while the hero is actually super sweet and complext the heroine really just does things and says things rather that feels real to me. hey are young and lucky with resources and this isn't as appealing to me because it isn't really dealt with as richly as it could be.

I enjoyed it but can't imagine 3 more books with this same couple.


Wish the next book was focused on the other couples.

BLUE LADY: The Angelica Mason Series
SHORT AND SAUCY, February 6, 2015
This review is from: Blue Lady: The Angelica Mason Series (Kindle Edition)
Short, saucy in a clean way, the beginning of a series.Do we always think we know what we want and then discover we might be wrong? Without giving away any of the details this is a piece of fiction one can feel the writer's enjoyment in telling the story - nice clothes, a fancy car, a job woth a great future - would you give it up in search for the love of your life? I enjoyed the story - the worst thing is I have to wait for the next sequel.

Ready for the Sequel!
The Healer - Christoph Fischer

I have read several books by this author, enjoyed all of them but 'The Healer', by far, is my favorite. In this novel, author Christoph Fischer, tackles a subject near and dear to my heart; the medical profession and the impact of physician decision making on individuals particularly those with severe medical conditions and diseases.

In Fischer's novel, we meet Erica in the aftermath of a round of chemotherapy intended to treat her pancreatic cancer. Readers learn very quickly that Erica is seeking the impossible; healing. We empathize with Erica knowing that she has one of the most painful and fatal forms of cancer. While Erica's "hair had not fallen out from the chemo...it turned gray and made her look much older than she was. People used to think of Erica as at least five years younger than she actually was, now people thought she was five years older. She looked tiny and felt thin and weak."

Out of desperation and the advice of her assistant, Erica searches for a renown spiritual guru known for his non-traditional unusual treatment protocols and more importantly for his fees. She persuades recluse Arpan self re-named Amesh to use his gift to heal her body in exchange for emptying her bank account.

Believing she's fully healed, Erica returns to her job basically broke but thankful for her life and ability to go forward.

Without spoilers, the author convincingly creates a story line, over and above the medical treatment issues, that revolves around core concepts such as faith, trust, relationships, integrity and more. He craftily develops the plot to allow for suspicion, anticipation and 'in the box' conclusions. While it could be easy for many readers to neatly make certain assumptions and form a simple conclusion, I was unable to do so. Perhaps it is because of my familiarity and extreme sensitivity (I must admit) to many of the topics raised in this outstanding novel, I completed the book having a myriad of questions and thoughts. I'd love for the author to have a sequel to this book. If he'd already written it, I would purchase it today!

Congratulations Christoph Fischer on another great book! Keep them coming.
