The Night Before
The Night Before - Wendy Walker The Night Before - Wendy Walker

Laura Heart is back in her home town, staying with her sister and her family while she gets back on her feet. When she disappears after going on a date with a man she met online, her sister Rosie is desperate to find her. But Rosie starts to wonder if Laura is more of a danger than the stranger she went out with.

Ooh, this was good! I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. I wanted the book to just end already because I couldn't stand not knowing what happened to Laura. This is told from Laura's point of view and also from Rosie's point of view while she's worrying and looking for her sister. Both sisters' stories are weaved together so well that you don't miss a beat. This book is full of suspense and twists and ugh, did I mention how good it was?! I was pleasantly surprised at a few things.. I thought I had it all figured out but I was wrong. Loved the characters and the depth of this whole book.

Thank you to Netgalley and St. Martin's Press for an ARC.

A Thousand Doors: An Anthology of Many Lives
A Thousand Doors: An Anthology of Many Lives - J.T. Ellison

Mia Jensen has had a horrible day. She's wondering how she got to this point in her life when she hears a noise in the kitchen. She's brutally attacked and left for dead and as she's dying she experiences some of the lives she could have lived if only she made a different choice.

This anthology tells the many lives Mia Jensen could have lived. If only. In my opinion there's not one bad story here. They're all strong, interesting and they all have the same flavour.. they all seemed like Mia. Contributors include Catherine McKenzie, Kaira Rouda, Kimberly Belle and Kate Moretti, but like I said every one of these stories is great. They felt complete. I know I've wondered "what would have happened if I did that?" and "if I hadn't of done that then this never would have happened." A unique and thought-provoking read that brought out a lot of emotions both for me and Mia Jensen.

Thank you to Netgalley and Two Tales Press for an ARC.

A Midwinter's Tail
A Midwinter's Tail - Bethany Blake

Professional pet sitter Daphne Templeton is getting ready to attend Sylvan Creek's annual Bark the Halls Ball. Everyone will be there including special guest CeeCee French, founder of a national chain of pet care franchises. But not everyone is excited to see CeeCee. Daphne’s friend Moxie Bloom is one of those people. When CeeCee is found stabbed to death, Moxie is the prime suspect. But Daphne knows her friend is innocent and she's going to prove it with the help of her basset hound sidekick Socrates.

Another fun installment in the Lucky Paws Petsitting series. I love this series and was so happy to be able to get my hands on A Midwinter's Tail early. I enjoyed catching up with Daphne and the gang and seeing who got into trouble this time around. I wasn't disappointed. Lots of cozy holiday vibes. Lots of love for animals. I have lots of love for that cute little pug on the cover! So cute. I'm looking forward to the next book!

Thank you to Netgalley and Kensington for an ARC.

Release Day Review! Protecting the Wolf's Mate (Brotherhood of the Moon 3) Sasha Summers!

 

 

Ellen has one goal: vengeance. With little memory of her life before her imprisonment by a maniacal werewolf, her world has been full of pain, humiliation, and fear. But now that she's been rescued, her need for revenge is challenged by the urge to be part of a pack... and the unshakable connection to, Hollis, the man her wolf claims as their mate.

 

Hollis will do whatever it takes to protect his pack, and that includes looking after Ellen, who doesn’t need or want his help. He’s determined to keep her safe, even though she’s hell-bent on revenge, even if that means sacrificing himself. And it might come to that when the big bad comes back for the one woman he can’t live without.

 


This paranormal werewolf romance is thrilling, exciting and a little bit edgy with a deliciously passionate enemies to lover romance that tantalizes readers from the very first page.

 

Ellen has one goal on her mind…vengeance but her need for revenge is being challenged by the need to be part of a pack and one wolf in particular has caught her interest. Hollis is determined to find a cure and he will do anything to protect his pack even Ellen who doesn’t want or need his help. Ellen and Hollis are strong, charismatic that easily capture the readers’ attention, drawing them into the story and ensuring that they want to know every last detail. The romance is sharp but passionate with lots of electrifying chemistry between the hero and heroine and the fact that the pack isn’t sure that Ellen can be trusted adds suspense and even more emotional turmoil that both of these characters have plenty of. Readers can’t help but connect with these two and follow them along on their journey to their happily ever after.

 

The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly throughout with lots of intrigue and excitement as the pack try to find a way to stop their enemy who is out to not only destroy their pack but has some evil plans in store for some of them. Twists and turns keeps readers on their toes and the wonderful characters and fascinating world ensures that readers want return to visit this pack again and again.

Transcription by Kate Atkinson
Transcription: A Novel - Kate Atkinson

A special thank you to NetGalley and Little, Brown and Company for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

In 1940, eighteen-year old Juliet Armstrong is reluctantly recruited into the world of espionage. Sent to an obscure department of MI5 she is enlisted to transcribe the conversations that take place in a bugged flat between Godfrey Toby, an MI5 agent, and a group of suspected fascist sympathizers.  At first the work seems dull, but then it becomes terrifying as Juliet is thrust into a world of secrets and code.  After the war ends, she thinks that her service is over that the event she transcribed are left in the past.

 

Fast forward ten years and Juliet is now a radio producer with the BBC.  Even though her past seems like a lifetime ago and Juliet has resigned herself to her more mundane life and work, she is unexpectedly confronted by figures from her past.  Haunted by these relationships and her actions, Juliet cannot escape from the repercussions of her work.  Left with no choice, she is pulled back into a life of espionage.  

 

Atkinson is such a gifted writer.  I had the privilege of attending an event where she spoke at length about her research and writing process for Transcription.  Her writing is rare in that she brings humour to her narrative in such a subtle way.  Much of this is accomplished through Juliet trying to make sense of what she is listening to as well as through her naiveté.  Juliet is Atkinson's vehicle to make the events fictional.  She is "the girl".  Atkinson has described her as being "a smart character, but with an incredibly active imagination".  

 

In typical Atkinson fashion, the reader is treated to shifts in time and plot (things don't unfold sequentially).  You can certainly tell that she has done her research, the story that emerges is nothing short of original and extraordinary, and I encourage you to read the author's notes.  Transcription is a layered work of deception and consequences and a thrilling literary read.
