Without a doubt this is my favorite series by Mary Calmes. I love all of her writings but this one is definitely at the top of my list and with each new story I've come to love all things Miro and Ian.
When things ended in 'Tied Up In Knots' Miro and Ian were planing on tying the knot and between then and now it's become a done deal and life for Ian couldn't be better. He's married to the man of his dreams, his friends are doing well, work is going well...until things at work begin to change and change is not Ian's friend...Ian doesn't do well with change.
While I'm a little late to the party with this one...real life just refuses to quit kicking my backside these day...so my sincerest apologies to both the publisher and the author and I promise like other reviews there are no spoilers here because regardless of this there's no way I'd want to spoil the awesomeness that was this book.
At the same time as 'Twisted and Tied' brings some things to a close for Ian and Miro, it also opens up a wealth of new possibilities for the author to continue sharing this wonderful world that she has created for us to enjoy, as readers and fans of this series.
'Twisted and Tied' while creating new paths to be traveled in the world of the Marshals has also given closure to others and all while answering some questions and creating new ones.
There's so much in this book that I loved from beginning to end with all of the changes and connections that came about this was one hella' fun and awesome adventure and I'm so looking forward to seeing what comes next for this series...in the immortal words of Shrek..."Change is good donkey." and in this case it's much of the change that's going to keep this series fresh, interesting, fun and just generally full of Mary Calmes awesomeness!!!
Now without details I just need to say the ending for this story was surprising but not and much of it came to what for me was the natural...even inevitable conclusion. I have to admit the only real issue I have is with the fact that the next installment in this series isn't sitting on my e-reader waiting for me...oh well, good things come to he...mmmmm ....eeerrrr...she who waits, right?
P.S. You also might want to keep a pen and paper handy to keep track of who all shows up for this party because it's a fun and interesting list.
An ARC of 'Twisted and Tied' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
I am not the most active reader, but I do enjoy a book in the following genres: Fantasy, Horror, Mystery, Action Adventures, and comedy.
But enough about my preferences, let's talk about why I chose to read Twisted Summer by Willow Davis Roberts. I read this book last year, but since then, I forgot the who, what, where, and why of Zoe's murder, however, it was a good mystery, as I recall.
I'm enjoying it so far!
This is book #4 in the Marshals series. This book can be read as standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I do not recommend reading this series out of order.
Ian & Miro's story continues with them going on with their lives as a married couple who works together. Ian has changed up pieces of his life in order to make Miro his priority. With all that goes on, and there are many surprises in store for the reader, this is a bit of a juggle.
I am not one to give spoilers in my reviews, so I will summarize by saying if you are a true fan of this incredibly satisfying series, you will love this book. The characters are fun to read with steady banter and humor. There is always the ever present heat and sparks. Just an all around good read with these characters inside. I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
This is a book of short stories and poems written in the style of Edgar Allen Poe. The stories and poems are all different with one thing in common. Death. The death in each story is different as well. There is a variety of causes of death. The stories are complete and not rushed. A couple I would love to read a whole book on, but for the most part you got everything you needed in the few pages dedicated to it.
At the first of the book is a poem dedicated to Edgar Allen Poe. I really enjoyed Mr. Dafoe's outlook on him. It really set the book off with a bang so to speak. There are 9 short stories in the book and a chapter of poems.
i enjoyed all the stories but really liked the story named his Royal Disgrace. The story is based on declassified Jack the Ripper files from Scotland Yard. i am not sure how much of the story is actually based on fact but I loved how the detective work was done. It made it seem filled with true facts. in the poetry section there is a poem called Alone. I don't know why I liked ti the most I just did. It is very dark and depressive but it just stood out to me.
If you are a fan of Edgar Allen Poe's work you really should grab a copy of this book.
I received this book as part of my participation in a blog tour with Pump Up Your Book Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Kraig Dafoe. The gifting of this book did not affect my opinion of it.
