Tinderbox: The Untold Story of the Up Stairs Lounge Fire and the Rise of Gay Liberation by Robert W. Fieseler

   Most people believe the shooting at Pulse night club in Florida was the biggest attack on gays. It was not the first. In the seventies, an oasis for gays and their friends in New Orleans was set on fire. It only took sixteen minutes to kill thirty-two people and injure fifteen. The Upstairs Lounge was a small but perfect place to gather.  Several at the lounge that night were still firmly in the closet. The fire brought them all out. 

   I enjoyed learning about this lounge. The story is well written  and  told in a forthright way. Getting to know those in attendance that Sunday is an honor.  It is also heartbreaking. You'll enjoy meeting the people at the club and the environment surrounding them. You'll also learn just how difficult it could be for gays. This one should be in your TBR pile.

  I didn't find any issues.

   I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5.  This touching account will teach you many things.

Tangled by James W. Lewis

     High school reunions take so much work.  Usually the former classmates are pretty divided about attending. There had to be something to draw everyone in. When an unknown person starts dropping hints about the former classmates, everyone was excited.  It became a true mystery to figure out who the unknown person was. 
     A high school reunion should be a time of laughter,  fun and memories. Everyone is hiding a secret. Will the reunion end all of that or will it bring even more to light? This reunion promises to be explosive.

     Well written and plotted, this one should be on your TBR pile. The characters are life-like and easy to relate to. Mr. Lewis weaves a story like a master storyteller.  He keeps the reader on their toes with subtle hints throughout. I enjoyed this book because it's more in line with many high school reunions. You're gonna find this one engaging.

     I didn't find any issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because of the final twist.

First Deceit: A Conspiracy Thriller (The Fatal Deceit Trilogy Book 1) by Henry Farley

     They were an unlikely pair. Elsa is an exotic dancer and Jack a former detective. One thing they had in common was their love. Elsa would do anything for Jack and she had over the years. Jack used Elsa to set up wealthy men. The men were "caught" by Jack in compromising conditions with Elsa. Jack would then ask for a huge sum of money to make it go away. Elsa was tired of it all.  Could she convince Jack to quit? Would she be able to walk away?

     This book would be a fantastic TV series or at least a blockbuster movie. The characters are well defined and engaging. The story is extremely well written. You will be encompassed by this story to the end.  Mr. Farley has paced this story well. Readers will  find it difficult to put this book down until they've read it all. Get this one.

     I found one issue. When talking about the characters past, it might read better to use small flashbacks. Delving into their pasts with such detail slows the pace.

    I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because of the issue above.

Accidental Roommate by Jolie Day

     Maya's first kiss was everything she had dreamed of. She'd wanted to kiss Ethan for as long as she could remember. What she couldn't figure out is why Ethan disappeared?  Maya wondered if she's ever know the reason.
     Ethan wanted Maya more than anything. Their kiss was simply amazing. He smiled when he remembered how Maya had looked that day. Then his best friend tells him to stay away from Maya.
      Would Maya and Ethan ever get the chance to see where that kiss would lead?

     Light hearted and an easy read. This book is well plotted and has characters you can relate to. Ms Day takes you on a magnificent journey of youth and experience. Past and present. You will find yourself thinking back to when you were eighteen. I enjoyed the fact Ms. Day didn't follow the usual path. She twisted the story just enough to keep you guessing. This one should be on your TBR list.

     I found no issues with this one.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it is so well written.

Soul of Evil by M. Rice

     Viscount Nickodemus Bedlam  wants more than anything to live quietly.  Nick is not someone who enjoys interruptions, surprises or unexpected visitors.  He doesn't enjoy people of any kind.  With the money and power Nick has, he can almost control his life his way. At least he thought so.

     An amazing book! This one will make you wonder if evil could have a soul. Well crafted with characters perfect for this time of year, you don't want to miss this one. I e joyed Nick. He's larger than life and brimming with a disposition many would shy away from. Each page brings you closer to the very reason Nick exists.  This page turner is one you can't set aside.  Soul of Evil makes Satan cringe.

     I didn't find any issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it deserves that and more.

The Policewoman by Justin W.M. Roberts

      Sarah is the kind of policewoman every department wishes they had. She knows her job and she happens to be very good at it. When other departments need an extra set of hands, Sarah is the one sent to help.

   In this book, you'll find a very well defined plot with many surprises. The characters  are well rounded and easy to like. I enjoyed the low key opening. Mr. Roberts lures you in and before you realize it, you're half way through the book.  I can tell you, this story packs a punch. This will make an excellent gift for the reader in your family.

     I did find one issue. I don't think the training sessions are completely necessary.  They could be shortened and still get their point across. I feel the training sessions take the story off course.

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because of the above issue.  I look forward to many more books with these characters.
