Book Review - Brandon's Very Merry Haunted Christmas by AJ Sherwood
Brandon's Very Merry Haunted ChristmasBrandon's Very Merry Haunted Christmas by A.J. Sherwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Omg I love Don's little brother!!!

In a lovely addendum/addition to the Jon's Mysteries series we get to meet Brandon, Donovan Havali's little brother! Recently recruited by the FBI, Brandon is shadowing Jon and Donovan in order to learn how to be a good anchor. It's Christmas in the Bane/Havali household and leave it to Brandon to gift Jon with a haunted snow globe. This leads to, no surprises here, an adventure!

In order to get the ghost out of the snow globe, Brandon, Donovan and Jon return to the place Brandon bought the globe and while there the three men work with FBI Medium Mackenzie Lafayette. And the Havali family tradition of falling head over heels strikes again.

I love Jon and Don. I think I'm gonna love Brandon and Mack just as much. This was equally a happy holiday novella and a fun mystery romp and both made my heart happy.

Book Review - A New Empire by Layla Reyne
A New Empire (Fog City, #3)A New Empire by Layla Reyne
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Layla Reyne has ended this series with a BANG!

In the final chapter of Fog City what we think we know isn't always the truth! ATF agent Christopher Perri has thrown his lot in with the Madigans and has fallen head over heels for the king assassin himself - Hawes Madigan. But the wolves are circling the empire Hawes and his siblings are trying to build, and the discovery of the traitor within the family could either make or break their attempts to move their organization towards a better path. But there are traitors and double traitors and nothing is as it seems as Dante and Hawes fight to end the bloodshed, to wrest control of the Madigan empire back to the rightful king and maybe, just maybe, find a happily ever after for themselves.

Such an amazing ending to their story, with guest cameos from other of Layla's series and the promise of more stories in the universe, because you just can't leave it there!

Book Review: The Marshal's PI by Este Holland
The Marshal's PI (Yours to Protect: Book Two)The Marshal's PI by Este Holland
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 out of 5 stars.

First time reader of this author and I enjoyed the book but would reccomend reading the first book in the series before reading this one.

Although this book can be read as a stand alone there were situations and already established characters in the book that muddled the story, as well as the fact that the two MCs had backstory that appeared in the first book.

I did find some of the scene transitions a little jumbled and there was a lot of awkward speeding forward of the plot just to get to the next bit so the story felt rushed in places. Other than that I really liked the characters and the plot line.

This is the 2nd book in the series and it resolves around PI James Kairo - Kai to his friends - and US Marshall Gannin West. West gets word from a mysterious agency that Kai is in trouble, having met him in the first book apparently. He goes haring off to Vegas to protect the man from this vague threat he's been told about and finds the PI has a hit out on him by a Vegas mob boss.

There's reference to Kai's twin brother, a hotshot in Homeland, who had been into drugs as a kid, got clean, and had an apparent relapse, a brother he hasn't seen or talked to in over a decade. There are photographs and they are used to blackmail Kai into being a messenger boy for mob, but it appears his usefulness is up.

Gannin arrives in the nick of time to help and the two men have to find a way to survive the hitman coming after Kai while dealing with Kai's reappearing brother, his family issues and a dleazy lawyer wanting to get into Kai's pants, all while falling for each other.

All-in-all an enjoyable read with an easy to follow plot, a little action, a little romance, and a happily ever after for the mcs.

Book Review: Crown of Iron & Silver - Soulbound 3 - by Hailey Turner
A Crown of Iron & Silver (Soulbound #3)A Crown of Iron & Silver by Hailey Turner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

All roads lead back to the Dominion Sect, even the ones that follow the Hawthorne Path.

This series just keeps getting better and better, just like Hailey's writing! I am so hooked on her as a writer it isn't funny.

Where to begin... this book is EVERYTHING. It's Patrick and Jono, Wade eating his way through the adventure, Jono taking no crap from Estelle and Youssef, THE HELLRAISERS - FINALLY!, the fae, the Celtic Pantheon, Patrick being Patrick, NADINE IS BACK, and there are so many other things that happen. This book is literally a whirlwind ride into the heart of chaos and back out again... oh, did I mention Patrick and Jono visit Tír na nÓg? Oh yeah, that happens too!

In a continuation of the first two books, Patrick and Jono are once again pitted against the Dominion Sect, who are aided by certain factions of the Celtic Pantheon this time around. The Wild Hunt and the Sluagh prey on Manhattanites as Patrick tries to figure out where a changeling came from and the NYC God Pack steps up it's attacks on Jono and his pack, causing lines to finally be drawn.

Patrick's old unit, led by Captain Gerard Breckenridge, comes for a visit and to discuss the search for the Morrigan's staff, the task that General Noah Reed, Patrick's former CO, had tasked them all with. To make matters worse, the Dominion Sect has captured the Summer Lady, grand daughter of the Queen of the Seelie, and who also happens to be Gerard's fiancee even as Estelle and Youssef's god pack step up their harrying of Jono and his pack, crossing a line from invasive to potentially deadly. New York is a city under seige from both the Seelie and the Unseelie Wild Hunt, people are terrified, and it's up to Patrick and his pack to figure out why. Deals are made that will help solidify Jono's pack's status in New York, deals that intersect with Patrick's soul debt to the Gods.

Patrick, Jono, and their pack and allies must cross the Veil, and take on the Unseelie Court in order to rescue the Summer Lady and once again stop Ethan from trying to basically destroy the world in his quest to become a God.

So get ready to Deck the halls with Iron and Silver. Have a Holly Jolly Wild Hunt, I'm Dreaming of a Hellraisers Christmas... Patrick, Jono, and their pack are up to their eyeballs in it, yet again.

The Bitterroots by C.J. Box
The Bitterroots - C.J. Box

I see this is the Audiobook and I did listen to the audiobook and read the book along with 


I'm no longer going to count this as a "Highway Quartet" series.  These books after the 1st 1-1/2 books are all about Cassie.

The Lizard King killed her mentor and Cassie has killed the Lizard King twice.  Okay, maybe just once but now he is dead.  After being humiliated and then vindicated by lousy planning by a county DA, Cassie is fed up with being a cop and becomes a PI in North Dakota and Montana and now she is becoming successful.  Cassie is now being called in for a favor by a defense attorney.  

Blake Kleinsasser has been accused of rape and the evidence is pretty solid.  Defense attorney Rachel Mitchell is calling in a favor and just wants to make sure the D.A. in the county the crime committed did his job.  Cassie is set on the fact that Kleinsasser is guilty and goes to Lochsa County to meet with the Sherrif, the former attorney, the raped girl, and her family.  Starting with checking into her hotel room, Cassie feels resistance, and this resistance is coming from the founding fathers of the county, the Kleinsassers'.

For me, Cassie Dewell never was quite as good as the Joe Picket series, Boxes other series.  The Bitterroots is just as good as any of the Picket books written. I'm giving this 4.5 of 5 stars but it could easily be a 5 of 5, it's just that good.
