Can a Princess Be a Firefighter? by Carole P. Roman

     Two little princesses are concerned. They want to remain princesses but they also want to do some other kind of work. They begin to question their dad about this. 

     A strong message with this one. YES, you can be a princess and anything else you want to be. I think it's a wonderful way to let girls know they can be sweet and dress up, but they can also get down and work right beside the boys. Your littles will love this one. Girls more than boys I'm sure. I love a teaching book and this is a terrific one.

     I found no issues in this one.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because of the positive message it gives.

Rocket-Bye by Carole P. Roman

     What better way to put your child to bed than with a story. This one will have them soaring through the skies. Flashing past the moon and exploring the galaxy. Their imaginations will take them to new worlds and exciting places. The perfect "goodnight" to your little.

     Lyrical and sweet, this book will help start off your child's dreams each night. It's just the right length to read at nap time or bedtime. As their eyes get heavier, they'll already be imagining the moon and rocket ship they'll have.

     I didn't find any issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's just the twist littles need at bedtime.

Molly Harper (Once and Forever #1) by Emelle Gamble

     Everyone has mistakes in their life. Some may be small while others are huge. Molly Harper, her mother and this new lady have more in common than they realize. Yes, Molly is a movie star and all that entails. Her mother, Norma is an elderly, wealthy woman. Anne has just moved to California. None of these ladies could imagine how their lives will change in a very short order. 

     I love this book! Spectacular writing and wonderfully full and richly developed characters make this one a joy to read. I enjoyed the connection between these women and the way it was crafted in this book. We also get to see life behind the Hollywood or Beverly Hills gates. It's not as charming as we'd like to believe. The compassion, love and forgiveness are so intricately woven in this story, it's like having a soft blanket to catch you if you fall. This story just goes to show even stars have their secrets and mistakes. 

     I didn't find any issues here.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's a wonderful story. 

No Rest for the Wicked by Dane Cobain

     The year is 2009 and people all over the world are dying. No one is sure why, but the numbers of the dead grows everyday. Many have theories about what's happening but there is no proof. Father Montgomery begins his own investigation when his parishioners become part of this nightmare. What he finds will shock you. Be ready.

     Once you begin to read this book, you think you know what's happening. The thing is, it's something totally different. I know that sounds confusing, but it's not really. Wild and fascinating, this is one book you won't want to put down. The writing is superb and the characters could be your own neighbors. The author reaches right down into your soul with this book. He will make you question many things around you. I know this book will be talked about for a long time to come. It's that intense. Get one today!

     I didn't find any issues with this one.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it will shake you to the core. 

The Traitor's Trap (Sebastian and the Hibernauts #2) by Brendan Murphy

    At thirteen, Sebastian's life was anything but normal. He'd lost his brother and he was having some really weird dreams. He had no idea he'd land in a world of magic to be told he was their savior. After weeks of preparing, Sebastian and a team of people would begin a quest like no other. 

     The writing in this book is tight and the characters truly something to be experienced. I found this book very interesting. Mr. Murphy allows us to see what's happening everywhere. He leads us down a trail and keeps you right in the moment. I'd love to see this series as a movie or mini-series on television.  Learning about all the people in this book was a lesson itself. There are so many different types of magical beings in this world. If you want to get lost for awhile, this is the book for you. You'll be so immersed in this book you'll forget time and place.

    While this book is over all, brilliant, I did find a couple of issues. I felt this book read very slowly. It seems as though once you get moving, several things happen to keep you plodding along at an increasingly slower rate.  I also felt there wasn't a reason to repeat details in the last twenty pages. We know what happened back then, tell us where we are going.

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

My Russian Nightmare by Danielle Sibarium

     Kiera's life hasn't been the same since her parents died. She and her older brother Sammy do their best to carry on. Sammy ran the family business and Kiera was a student, both handling more than they should.  Suddenly, life changes again. This time it threatens to put an end to Kiera and Sammy. 

     Exciting and adventurous, this book will hold your attention until the last page. The wonderful writing and the three dimensional characters give this book the power to take your breath away. I love the flow of this book and the way it never quite tells you everything you want to know. It's strong and soft at the same time. It was easy to take sides right away, but then you question whether you, the reader, are on the right side. Love is an amazing motivator and this book allows you to see just how amazing. This book is one for your personal library. Tell others about it, review it and enjoy!

     The only issue I found was the way the last chapter just ends abruptly. You've been geared up and "running" through the book only to hit a brick wall at the end. 

     I gave this book 5 cheers out of 5 even though there was an issue because the book is just that good.
