Book Review For: Stronger' by Janet Nissenson
Stronger - Janet Nissenson

'Stronger' by Janet Nissenson is book 6 in The "Inevitable" series. This is the story of Dante Sabattini and Cara Bregante. Dante and Cara had met earlier in this series but this can be read as a standalone book.
Dante thought he was in love with Katie and was about to ask her to marry him, but she up and broke things off with him. This has left Dante feeling sour toward love. Cara has had a big crush on Dante since first meeting him but he was in a relationship and never thought she would be with him. Then Cara too has some bad relationship and swore to keep to working toward her college degree. Dante has been in the dumps since the break up but when he sees Katie seems to have moved on with her life vows to ask the next women on a date. Which turns out to be Cara.
I really enjoyed their story building up to what it became. It was a hot read and hard to put down. I ended up reading this book twice.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Lost Lake
Lost Lake - Sarah Addison Allen,Janet Metzger

Lost Lake, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: I’m a fan of the author.

The Characters:

Kate Pheris, Devin Pheris, Eby Pim, Wes Patterson, Lisette Durand, Jack Humphry, Selma Koules, Bulahdeen Ramsey:

The Story:

This book had a wonderful ensemble cast and a beautiful story. I love that we got a moment to learn about each of them even though the overall story was concentrated on Kate, Devin and Eby. This was a great book to listen to and get lost in the moment with.

Writing: Effortless. The scenes were painted wonderfully but the author and brought to life so easily by the narrator. I did not go into this book realizing it was a series but what a delightful surprise. I can not wait to explore more of this small town.
Forward Motion: Good.
Overall Interest: Loved it. Found myself sitting in my car at my destination several times just listening.
Length of Reading Time: 7 days = decent time
Re-read-ability: I would not re-read as I do not want the ending to change. *Insert cheeky wink here*

The Random Thoughts:

The Score Card:


4 Stars

Texas Fierce by Janet Dailey
Texas Fierce - Janet Dailey


Rough terrain, rugged men and tempting women lay the landscape for a bumpy ride. Texas Fierce is a hearty tale of treachery and temptation.  Bull and Susan are caught up in forces beyond their control.  Danger resides on the horizon and it will take all of their strength to survive the irresistible pull they feel for each other.  Fierce is the perfect adjective for a story as bold as the people who live it and the love that grows from it.

Fun start to a series!
Murder at Redwood Cove - Janet Finsilver

Kelly Jackson hates that she is taking over for a dead man, but her company has sent her to run the Redwood Cove Bed & Breakfast. Not long after she gets there she gets wrapped up in what happened to Bob, the man who died. The Silver Sentinels, a group of older individuals who fancy themselves and crime solvers is on the case and fill her in on how they think he was murdered.


Before she knows her curiosity has gotten the better of her and she starts looking into Bob’s last days. Then one of the kids of an employee is almost harmed and she starts thinking they are some how related but what would Tommy have seen to have someone try and kill him. Now she is really on the hunt because she adores Tommy and nobody should want to harm a kid.


Finally after what happen to Tommy the local police start taking what she and the Silver Sentinels have to say about Bob being murder and they soon find out the reason. Now they just have to try and decipher some clues to figure out who it is.


I really like Kelly, she is a blackbelt in taekwondo and even though her parents would rather her be working with them she is determined to make it on her own. She has been cheated on so she is slow to warm up to men, but she is kind of crushing on a co-worker from her company. I really love the Silver Sentinels, they are so adorable. They are the protectors of the town and I thought it was so sweet how they took turns watching out for Tommy. Just a great cast of characters.


It has a great mystery too because I really didn’t figure it being who it was and I like it when I don’t figure it out.


This is a great one for all cozy lovers!

I continue to be drawn in by beautiful cover art
The Charmed Children of Rookskill Castle - Janet Fox

The Charmed Children of Rookskill Castle by Janet Fox is another prime example of an eye-catching cover which I couldn't resist. It evokes a certain gothic mysteriousness which I'm happy to say was delivered. From the very beginning,  the reader is launched into a tale of magic, wickedness, desperation, and all-consuming power. The story follows a family of children who are sent to stay at an estate in the country during the Blitz of WWII. However, all is not what it seems at this country school as the oldest daughter, Kate, quickly realizes after meeting the lady of the house. Much of the drama is tied to a chatelaine (a chain decorated with different items used around a house and usually worn by the woman in charge of the household affairs) worn by this woman. There are a lot of different threads to follow in this narrative which made it a little challenging to follow at times. The reader is sent back in time to follow this woman's history and then suddenly we're back with Kate in the present. That was a bit jarring but easily overcome. I'd say that the book's biggest strength was its originality in using magical artifacts of an unusual sort (I don't want to give it away entirely). If you are a fan of boarding school mysteries with a healthy heaping of dark magic then you'll most likely enjoy this book. It's a 6/10 for me but it would have been higher if the narrative thread had been a bit tighter.


I mean how could I have turned down this cover?!
