Review of novella "Undercover Magic" (Dragon's Gift: The Valkyrie Book 1) - Linsey Hall
Undercover Magic (Dragon's Gift: The Valkyrie Book 1) - Linsey Hall

So, random Amazon prime borrow (Kindle Owner's Lending Library) -- a freebie, self-/indie published  and a shorter length work that I really wound up enjoying.

 

Not really sure why beyond liking the heroine.  It threw so much at you at once that I'm not sure I have a handle on the story, the series or the worldbuilding.  But just go with it; action-packed and full of pretty much everything supernatural, paranormal or fairy-tale-ish.

 

Not sure yet why series is called Dragon's Gift or Valkyrie.  No Valkyries yet.  The main character and her sister's powers are still unknown at end of this one.

 

Probably the best review I can give this is that I plan on reading the next novella in the series.

Once more
How to Blow It with a Billionaire - Alexis Hall

This is book #2, in the Arden St Ives series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Arden's story continues with his on and off again relationship trial with Caspian.  He puts himself out there in the hopes that he can help heal the coldest of hearts.  While it seems a good patch for a time, there is always the human factor.

 

Caspian does not want to be fixed, nor does he want to come across weak.  His view of Arden trying to keep him close is skewed by those who have claimed to love him before.  This would take all day and a slew of psychoanalysis to try and explain.  For now, we must accept he is not ready to move on.

 

This story was so good and had the upswing going for it.  There was heat, passion, love, and so much more.  I was very pleased to finally see character development in many of the characters involved.  I cannot wait to read the next installment and hope the author hurries and has pity on me.  I give this title a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

"Nieve en Marte", de Pablo Tébar. TOP.
Nieve en Marte - Pablo Tébar

De lo mejorcito del año. Incluso para mí, que no soy un gran amante de la ciencia ficción, me ha parecido sobresaliente.

La historia: Siglo XXIII. León Miranda, un lingüista con problemas económicos, es reclutado para integrar una expedición a Marte, con el fin de descifrar una especie de monumento jeroglífico (algo así como la piedra Rosetta, pero a lo bruto).

Mezcla algunos elementos de ciencia ficción con el thriller más potente, y le queda un libro espectacular.

not for me
How to Blow It with a Billionaire - Alexis Hall

This is about Aiden and the man he cares about - Caspian. Caspian does open up and show he does care about Aiden. Aiden is sweet and innocent in a lot of ways. Aiden flew out to the U K as his friend Nik had been in an accident. Caspian is starting to accept he and Arden are fated to be together. Then  they went to   Ellery’s birthday party and the man who had made his move on Caspian was there. He had also played with Caspian’s mind for a long time . Caspian blames himself.

I could not get into this book so I didn’t finish this . I just didn’t connect with the characters or the plot and the story didn't catch or keep my interest.

Club Room Corpse
Club Room Corpse: A Cassie Hall Mystery - Sherry Lodge

Cassie, Cassie, Cassie. As if you don't have enough on your plate to keep you busy, what with wedding plans and your concierge job catering to the upscale residents of the Parkstone luxury apartment building and finding who is the lucky recipient of a lovely pair of Lovebirds, but you had to go and find yourself in the middle of another murder. And poor Stella! Readying her 75th birthday party, she is ruthlessly killed. Who could have it in for this innocent little old lady? There's a whole RSVP list of suspects and motives and as if finding the killer wasn't hard enough, untangling the half-truths and mysteries of Stella's life prove to be just as difficult. What's a fashionista to do other than to put on her Jimmy Choo's and solve another mystery?

 

I enjoy this cute little cozy series, from Cassie's running narrative of what the residents of the Parkstone are wearing to her ability to ferret out the smallest details and help her homicide detective boyfriend close the case, it always puts a smile on my face. The Clubroom Corpse had an especially juicy plot, with a victim who hid many secrets, a whole building full of suspects and lots of clues and misdirections to keep me guessing. I loved the madcap ending, it was a fun and exciting way to cap off an enjoyable mystery. And I've got my eye on you Mr. Beasley narrows eyes
