Review ~ Disappointing
Cat's Paws and Curses - Nancy Warren

Book source ~ Kindle Unlimited


American Lucy Swift is really enjoying running her grandmother’s knitting shop in Oxford. She never thought she would, but here she is. Of course, her grandmother may be dead, but she’s not dead-dead considering she’s a vampire. So Lucy has the benefit of her wisdom as well as that of the whole vampire knitting circle. Lucy has been holding a knitting circle nights right before Christmas so her customers can have a place to knit presents for family. But one evening, when the lights go out and one of the knitters is murdered, the murderer has to be in the same room. One of her knitters is a murderer! What?


I love this series because it’s cute, humorous (yes, even with a murder or two), and there’s the paranormal aspect with the knitting vampires and all. Plus, magic because Lucy is also a witch. But this one seemed a tad rushed to me. Maybe because it’s a short story instead of the usual length. It just seemed a bit lacking which is why I dropped the rating down from my usual. However, it’s still a nice mystery and I got to see Rafe and Ian. I wish Lucy would give Ian more of a chance. Rafe is ok, but she seems adamant that she will not be with a vampire, so Ian would be more her speed, even though he’s with law enforcement. Or maybe she needs to meet a witch instead. I’m curious where Lucy’s love life is heading. Looking forward to book 9.

Review ~ Entertaining!
Flirty Dancing (The Green Room Chronicles #3) - J.D. Frettier

Book source ~ ARC. My review is voluntary and honest.


We’re back in the Green Room and the newest member, Kitty Eatin *snorts*, has just departed the Earthly plane due to an unusual accident. Her demise will really tug the heart strings since she leaves behind a new 2nd husband and two kids. She’s always been one to take life by the reins so why let the afterlife stop her? Determined to still be there for her family she enlists the help of her new Green Room pals to find a way to make it happen. Just because she’s dead doesn’t mean she has to stop livin’. If life is gettin’ you down then I recommend this humorous and naughty look at the afterlife. And while you’re at it be sure to pick up books 1 & 2. They’ll be sure to brighten your day.

NetGalley November
The Flesh Cartel #4: Consequences (The Flesh Cartel Season 2: Fragmentation) - Heidi Belleau,Rachel Haimowitz

*Book source ~ NetGalley


This is the continuation of Dougie and Mat’s story of how they were kidnapped and sold into sexual slavery. They have begun their training with Nikolai who must mold them into the perfect submissives before they are sent off to their new Master.


It’s not the story, it’s definitely me. I’m just not interested in Dougie and Mat’s dilemma anymore. I don’t know if it’s all the psychological stuff, all the internal debate, Nikolai or it’s just not moving fast enough for me, but I’m done with this series. It’s still well-written with great characters, but apparently my tastes have changed. Don’t let my ennui put you off reading this series.

NetGalley November
The Flesh Cartel #3: Choices (The Flesh Cartel Season 2: Fragmentation) - Heidi Belleau,Rachel Haimowitz

*Book source ~ NetGalley


Mat and Dougie have survived (barely) the flesh auction and head to the home of their new Master’s professional trainer, Nikolai Petrovic. Only they don’t know that until they get there. Each brother doesn’t even know where the other is even though they are traveling in the same RV. Is life about to get harder for them? Or will they escape?


I’m not finding this series as enthralling as I did when I started. It’s still compelling and the writing is great, but maybe my tastes have changed. I want the brothers to escape their situation, but I’m not getting much hope to cling to. Maybe that’s the problem. They didn’t sign up for any of this, so I want to see them triumph over the bad guys, but it’s just not happening fast enough for me. If it ever does? I’m not sure. I probably wouldn’t continue except I have the next section from NetGalley. Maybe things will look up for the brothers then.

Graphic Novel Review
 The Red Shoes and Other Tales - Metaphrog

*Book source ~ Free from NoiseTrade


From Goodreads:

There once was a young girl, who was pretty but poor. So poor she had to go barefoot. Her name was Karen and she loved to dance. When Karen becomes an orphan, her great aunt takes her in. One day on a shopping trip, she is bought a beautiful pair of red shoes. The shoes magically come to life and steer Karen down a path she never would have imagined in her wildest dreams, or nightmares. This fresh take on the Hans Christian Andersen classic “The Red Shoes” is a tale of hope, obsession and guilt, retold and lavishly illustrated by multiple-Eisner award nominated creators Metaphrog. Also included is an adaptation of Andersen’s “The Little Match Girl” and an original story, “The Glass Case”.


I can’t believe I’ve never read the two Andersen stories. I’m seriously deficient in the classics. I get the gist of the tales from this graphic novel, but I’ll still want to read the actual books someday. The Glass Case is an original and it's not bad. The artwork is ok. It’s not horrible, but I wasn’t wowed either. All-in-all it’s an enjoyable way to spend the 20 minutes or so it takes to read it.
