Body Art by Kristopher Triana

     What does a soon-to-be college student, his wild child girlfriend and a porn star have in common? Much more than you might imagine. Toby had just graduated from high school and was looking forward to a vacation. He and his girlfriend  rented a secluded cabin. It's while they are exploring the area that their vacation takes a sharp left turn. Toby and Jessica may never be the same after this.

     This book takes horror and X-rated ideas to the highest level. Well written and deeply disturbing, this book is not for the faint of heart. The characters are well defined and unique. If you enjoy blood and guts movies, this book is for you. Even though I made the statements above, the book is hard to put down. 

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 for the original ideas in the book.

Fatal Charm by Blair McDowell

     Caitlin Abernathy's life is going well. She designs jewelry in her own store and she's getting ready to meet with a huge buyer. Then strange events start taking place. Caitlin writes it off as bad luck, but is it really? She couldn't have guessed this side trip, the incidents, were all connected and would change her life.

     A mystery introduced them, intrigue kept them together. Well written and engaging characters is what makes this book so fantastic. This one is definitely a page-turner.  Fatal Charm is well plotted and full of surprises. I really enjoyed the way this story came together. I'd like to see Caitlin Abernathy and Colin Stryker in another myster/romantic tale. Get this one for your TBR pile, you'll be glad you did.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because there is so much to enjoy in this book.

I live on British Columbia’s beautiful Sunshine Coast, where I run a B&B. When I’m not cooking omelets or flipping pancakes, I write romantic suspense, one of which (Romantic Road) just won the Romance Reviews Readers Choice award. With four novels in print, I’m waiting for the release of my fifth, Where Lemons Bloom, and I jam working on #6 about a jewelry theft from the Louvre! When winter comes, I head to warmer climes, in October to Europe, and in the winter to the Caribbean. A member of the Writers Union of Canada, and of the Romance Writers of America, my travels are fodder for my writing.

Jamarr's Promise: A True Story of Corruption, Courage, and Child Welfare by Kristin Morris

     Jamarr is removed from his home for his safety. DCCP in New Jersey found out Jamarr's mother's boyfriend had been beating him. He is placed back in his mother's home and the unthinkable happens. What will happen to Jamarr now?

     This book will make you pause. You probably think you know DCCP/Child Protective Services. You don't know a thing. The horror of the situation and then the actions of an agency charged with protecting our smallest citizens is out of this word.  If you have a heart, this book will reach into your body and pull it out. Jamarr's Promise is a must read for parents everywhere.

     I didn't find any issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5.

Class of '59 (American Journey #4) by John A. Heldt

     It's 2017 and Mary Beth experiences the most horrific thing a person can experience. To say it rattled her would be an understatement. While staying at a family friends house, Mary Beth begins to see things. She has to investigate.
     Mark finds a paper in an old desk. What it says can't possibly be true. Mark's gonna give it a try though.  How will it affect Mary Beth and Mark?

     Mr. Heldt draws you in from the first words. Well written and characters you'll love are huge pluses in this book. You are never quite certain if there will trouble or if the characters can move about freely.  One day the subject of this book may be common place. I really enjoyed this one. Mr. Heldt is a gifted storyteller. 

     I didn't find any issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I'd like to meet Professor Bell one day.

Hannah's Moon (American Journey #5) by John A. Heldt

     Claire and her husband, Ron had just suffered another miscarriage. It was devastating because they'd been trying so long to have children. Then Claire's brother approaches her with an idea. It's crazy and a little unorthodox but it could work. Claire, David and Ron are about to take a journey  they'll never forget.

     Bring the tissues for this one. Heartwarming and special, this book will hit you deep. Well written and the characters that are relate-able make this book a quick read. Keep an open mind throughout the book *wink*. Mr. Heldt out did himself this time. His books are an automatic must read for me. The author guides you through the maze of feelings and events like a pro. You'll never go wrong with a John A. Heldt book.

     I didn't find any issues and I looked hard John *grin*.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it is an amazing tale.

Crazy Love by Rachael Tamayo

     Emily's life is pretty busy. She works and she has a friend getting married soon. With everything going on, she didn't notice Noah. Emily is friendly and kind to everyone, but some take it more personally than she meant it to be. Now she just wants to figure out what's going on. Isaiah is a cop and cupid hit him hard when he met Emily. Can the two of them work out this mess and move on?

     This book is well written and contains characters who are both loved and despised. This amazing book will keep you riveted to your seat. Thrilling, scary and hopeful, you'll be cheering for the good guys. The book reads a little slow but the content more than makes up for it.

     I did find some issues. The part where Emily doesn't remember things seems to happen too suddenly. I think it would have been better to gradually make it happen.  Chapter 22 begins with the wrong man's name.

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because of the issues above. This one should be on your TBR pile and I eagerly await the next book about Isaiah and Emily.
