Devil in Spring By Lisa Kleypas $1.99
Devil in Spring - Lisa Kleypas

An eccentric wallflower  . . .

Most debutantes dream of finding a husband. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans. The ambitious young beauty would much rather stay at home and plot out her new board game business than take part in the London Season. But one night at a glittering society ball, she’s ensnared in a scandal with a wickedly handsome stranger.

A cynical rake  . . .

After years of evading marital traps with ease, Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, has finally been caught by a rebellious girl who couldn’t be less suitable. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him. But Gabriel finds the high-spirited Pandora irresistible. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her, even if their marriage of convenience turns out to be the devil’s own bargain.

A perilous plot  . . .

After succumbing to Gabriel’s skilled and sensuous persuasion, Pandora agrees to become his bride. But soon she discovers that her entrepreneurial endeavors have accidentally involved her in a dangerous conspiracy—and only her husband can keep her safe. As Gabriel protects her from their unknown adversaries, they realize their devil’s bargain may just turn out to be a match made in heaven . . .

Ivy in Bloom (A Picture Book) by Vanita Oelschlager & Kristin Blackwood (Artwork)
Ivy in Bloom: The Poetry of Spring from Great Poets and Writers from the Past - Vanita Oelschlager,Kristin Blackwood

I've got a tiny review for you today. It is for this adorable picture book!

--

 

Well, that was just cute. I enjoyed the little poem and the artwork that went along with the story. I feel like it would be a stunning book for anyone to own in person and think the bright colors would entice younger minds who are not quite at reading level.

 

*Netgally provided my copy*

Classic horror at its best
The Lost Village - NEIL SPRING,Neil Spring

Neil Spring is an elegant author of what I would term as classic horror. In his writing just like an artist he paints a picture and relies on the reader to look at that picture and use his imagination to envisage the story. In The Lost Village he again teams two of his favourite ghost hunters Harry Price and his assistant Sarah Grey. They have travelled to the former village of Imber on Salisbury Plain to help understand strange and ghostly sightings including the tragic disfigurement of Sgt Gregory Edwards. I love Spring's writing style and his simple but effective use of language which is a joy to read yet somewhat disturbing and creepy...."The winter sun was sinking beneath the spires of Westminster and casting a pink hue across the London skyline".... "I froze. Around me, the trees seemed to shimmer, as if I were seeing them through a haze. At first, there was absolute silence. The air had become chillingly cold, freezing, and then I thought I heard, faintly.....low whispering"......"Price was standing in the centre of the wrecked mill, next to the battered table and chairs. A length of rope dangled from his right hand. Wearing his black frock coat that fell to his knees, he exuded the sinister presence of a Victorian Executioner".....

 

The Lost Village is really the story of displaced inhabitants attempting to reclaim what the army has stolen. Once a year they are invited back but this will be no ordinary visit as a chain of events sets in motion a terrible reckoning, and a sickening revelation ensuring that Imber will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. I particularly liked the cover of this novel with its dark angry skies and the picture of a man approaching wearing his trademark black coat, all which really adds to the atmospheric, macabre tale. Many thanks to the good people at Quercus publishing for a gratis copy in exchange for an honest review and that is what I have written.

The Spring Cleaning Murders, An Ellie Haskell Mystery by Dorothy Cannell
The Spring Cleaning Murders - Dorothy Cannell

The Spring Cleaning Murders, An Ellie Haskell Mystery by Dorothy Cannell is a quick cozy mystery to read. Because it kept me guessing, I gave it four stars.

 

Ellie's family meets a new housekeeper, Mrs. Large. "'Morning, all.' Her voice was deep and gruff and--as might be expected--she was definitely a big woman. A good six-feet tall, with a long lugubrious face and a plodding walk."

 

Ellie is thinking about the loved ones in her life: "the heart has many nooks and crannies, each of which can only be filled by certain people."

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Random House Publishing Group-Alibi and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.
