Soul Song by Mikea Howard
Soul Song (Soul Mate Tree #10) - Mikea Howard

This book was provided to me free of charge in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are definitely my own

This book is not a stand alone from obvious as I felt so lost when I first started reading it. This is book #2.5 in the author's own series called 'The Diesel War', so it would have been nice to know some backstory or something to be able to follow this along.

Like a "catch me up" synopsis before the actual story maybe? Now I was thinking not the entire store will have this shifter thing going on but boy was I wrong. They have so many of them such as werewolf shifters, eagle shifters, good vs bad shifters, Gods and Goddesses.

This book is about Guatimozin, Tim, an eagle shifter that helps people in the realm between life and death cross over to their loved ones. He is quite selfless and has never want for anything until he meets Dottie.

The writing style is fluid, well developed, and at a steady pace with the authors doing a great job with the worldbuilding and really provided so much detail in their writing that it was easy to picture.

However, There are some very predictable scenes yet there are still a few unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming! Unfortunately, I had a really hard time following along and had to re-read several passages over and over again.

So, this book is filled with the characters, settings, scenes, backstory, and language; called Diesel Speak from the author’s other book series, The Diesel War Book Series. This certainly made things more complicated and confusing. I definitely felt like I had walked into the middle of a movie, instead of what I had come to know with these mostly standalone Soul Mate Tree Books.

So, I cannot suggest this book to be read as a standalone. However, you do not need to read the previous nine Soul Mate Tree Books to understand this one; in fact, that wont help at all. I would suggest reading the first two books of The Diesel War Book Series before picking up this book.

I read and review books in the middle of the series with fair amount of the time having not read the previous books in that series. Usually, I have no trouble following along. Yes, there is overlap of characters, backstory, settings, etc. However, most authors gently remind the reader about what happened in the previous book(s) during the first couple chapters. Yes, I probably wont get all the inside jokes and not realize some things, but I can still read the book and get the jiff of things. With this book, I felt like I might as well have been reading it in a different laungage I could barely understand. Which is truly sad to say, because I loved the characters, great storyline, fantastic world-building, immaculate attention to details, fluid writing style, and I am loving the Soul Mate Tree Books. So, I was quite heartbroken and disappointed that this book didn’t live up to its predecessors.

With that being said I did enjoy reading the book even though I found myself rereading a few passages. Being confused at turns and seeing where this book ended was all beauiful. I hate that I was walking into a middle of a series but glad I found this book as I will be looking into the Diesel War Books to catch up where I am know. This book will be recommended to anyone who loves romantic, fantasy or paranormal readers. Which is why I give Soul Song a four and half out of five stars.

So Many Secrets, Breakdown Book 2 by Vicki Hinze
So Many Secrets - Vicki Hinze

I received this advance copy from Goddess Fish Promotions and Pink House Press for a honest review! 


AND the story to continues for the saga of Shutter Lake in the Breakdown Series.

I’m hooked and intrigued as this book flows from the previous author which goes so smoothly I almost forgot they were all different authors! That is some amazing work and I am quite impressed in these ladies for that.. Plus I am bamboozled, I don’t know who the killer is which just has me absorbing everything into this book and the desire to know the secrets which Dana has been hiding from EVERYONE. Such a great series, very cool how each author focuses on one chapter. Strong, bright women! Love it especially seeing this book from Dana's point of view.


There are still LOTS of questions and new leads with more answers left without a answer. The ending crept up on me and was not as shocking as the first book but was wonderful. I love the first 2 books so far and looking forward to reading the 3rd! The characters are so complex and the level of depth into the overall stories are wonderful.


Again this book flowed from the last like slicing into butter. It was so good! I really im impressed at how well these authors write together and appeal to readers for each author along with mystery/suspense/thriller readers!

The Dead Girl, Breakdown Book 1 by Debra Webb
The Dead Girl - Debra Webb

I received this advance copy from Goddess Fish Promotions and Pink House Press for a honest review! 


It's a small Magical world Ms. Webb as we live in the same city! Did you vote for the Trash Pandas? I did but now I feel bad about it... 


Anyway! Onto my review of The Dead Girl of Shutter Lake. What a town to live in when it is described like a paradise or that perfect town you dream about until something horrible happens. A murder in the little town of Shutter lake. What a way to start a book Ms. Webb! Within moments I was sucked and almost was late from my lunch during the fiscal new year. 


We are introduced to the cast where we focuse on Deputy Chief of Police Laney Holt, and the chief of police, Griff McCabe. They struggle to solve the first heinous crime to be committed in their peaceful town like any good series goes such as one I was watching last year on Netflix! A haunting past for both Laney and Griff is there to possibly make it hard to solve the crime..... Or does it not get in the way?

As they continue to get further in the investigation we a glimpse into the life of the victim. She the surface seems to be a kind, generous benefactor to those closest to her yet why was she killed? This made me feel like I was watching an hour long Investigation Discovery segment which I could sink my teeth into! I began to wonder who the victim really was and if she really is who everyone thought she was. Perhaps a mistake for the criminal who murdered her yet signs are pointing in all directions. If they’re not careful all their secrets may come boiling up before this story is done as we experience life through Laney Holt's eyes in Shutter Lake.

Grabbing you head on and having you on the edge of your seat about to fall off as page by page more comes out yet not enough to solve it.. You start to go one way then BANG! You were guessing wrong. Even until the end I was guessing left and right while trying to see if I just read a foreshadow or something to put me off the murderers tracks.  your attention and have you balanced on the edge of your seat. I am anxious to see what secrets will begin to be revealed as we follow the tale of the murder of Sylvia Cole.

Three Lessons in Seduction by Sofie Darling
Three Lessons in Seduction - Sofie Darling

I received this arc at no cost to myself for a honest review.


The flow of the flashbacks seemed almost effortless. Descriptions of Paris and London was so picturesque and made you feel as if you were there with Mariana or Nick. The language was daunting but a little footnote of translations could keep a lot of readers going in my opinion since they either are not using a kindle or have a hard copy. Just a thought! So i am comfortable giving this book 4 out of 5 star review. :

Tempted by the Viscount by Sofie Darling
Tempted by the Viscount - Sofie Darling

I received this ARC at no cost to myself for a honest review.


From the inauspicious beginning with unexpected romance yet completely predictable for most readers. However, there is excellent storytelling like the first book a read from Mrs. Darling, The characters as the first book was very interesting as well along with the possibility to grow on future books is ginormous. This book happens to be a standalone in an interconnected series which is amazing and I was not prepared for this knowledge as I kept thinking the characters from the first book would make more of an appearance then they did but it was nice getting to know more about Olivia in the second book. I'm hoping to see Olivia's uncle from the first book in the third installment along with Percy, Olivia's dead/resurrected husband. This reasoning with the flowery language is why I gave this 4 stars out of 5. I feel the flowery language helped passed this story off and prove true to the time. I highly recommend this book!
