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.

Adeline by Mark Torres

    A helpless Father. A disabled Mother.   A mysterious death that would haunt them through the years.  At the heart of it all, a happy young  girl.  Could anyone unravel the details and find the answer the family desperately needed? 
    Savoy Graves was hired to make sense of this mystery and time was limited. This case was gonna be difficult. Savoy jumped in with both feet, spurred on by the oddities he found along the way.

    This book is a fantastic read. The first thing you will notice is the large amount of characters introduced in a very short time. You will be knee deep in this mystery before you realize it. The page turning story will keep you reading until you get to the end.Great characters. Well plotted. Fast paced. Characters you can easily related to.  This book has it all.  Mr. Torres writes a very well rounded book. You'll be telling friends and family to read this one.

     The  only issue I found was the number of characters introduced in the first twenty-five pages. You almost need to take notes to keep track of everyone. I think it deprives the rest of the book in a way. Adding that number of characters a little at a time gives the reader a chance to weigh each character and decide whodunit.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because despite the issue I found, this one will make your flesh crawl.

Hollywood Hollyweird Part 2: Last Ditch Effort! by Arthur Norman

        Art Jr is back! This time things have changed just a bit. He's not exactly on the path he hope to be on. He;s loving life. Loving family and enjoying himself. Art Jr hopes to find a way into Hollywood many don't think about at first. He has the talent,but does he have the material? Right now life is good and Art Jr knows it can only get better.

     This second book has  Mr.Norman, Jr's humor and so much mire. Again, it's a quick read but the information inside will keep the conversation going for hours. I  enjoy the way he talks of Hollywood and then of  his family. Show he has the right frame of mind.

     Again, the only issue is the wish for a longer book.

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because I know Mr. Norman, Jr has  more good Hollywood stories to share.

Hollywood: Hollyweird: How People Survive & Make It! by Art Norman Jr

     Art meets his biological father for the first time. The hit it off right away and Art Jr confides in his Dad about  his dream of Hollywood. Art the Sr had conquered  Hollywood in his own way and time. He gave his son a connection. 

     I liked this short book. Mr.Norman, Jr isn't afraid to tell you what he saw or experienced during his time in Hollywood. The good, the bad and the strange are brought forth for your entertainment. Mr. Norman, Jr does a terrific job of sharing these ....scenes, without too much detail. He does share a lot of humor though. It will make you want to wander Hollywood on your own.

The only issue I found was, the book was to short! I wanted to keep reading about these friends and strangers.

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because I think it could have been a longer and fuller book.

The MacInnes Affair by Blair McDowell

     It was the perfect time to get away, at least Lara thought so.  She had broken her engagement and school was on summer break. Lara needed  a fresh perspective. She decided to head for Scotland. Lara had no idea a new adventure awaited her.
     Iain's life in Scotland was simple and he liked it that way. His horses and cattle kept him busy enough, he didn't have time for much more. His world was about to be flipped upside down.

    I love this book. The story is well written and well plotted. The characters are relate-able and easy to fall in love with. The modern/historical is a wonderful combination. It gives you the full story not just one side.  Ms. McDowell seems to anticipate the readers questions before they are asked.  Her writing style is simply beautiful and will keep you spellbound from beginning to end. The modern part of this story in no way wipes out the beautiful historical part. You need to get this book for your TBR pile.  Ms. McDowell's books are automatic buys.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one five cheers out of five because this book envelopes you in its beauty.

The Magic Cookie by Gloreen Burke

   While visiting Grandma, Jake helps her make cookies.  Jake watched his grandmother add the ingredients to a big bowl. He noticed she put in something different. Jake asked about the special ingredient but Grandma didn't say anything. When the cookies were baked, Jake sat down to enjoy them.. It was then something happened. He looked around but things looked different. Where was he?

    Oh my, this is such a clever tale. Your young ones will be begging to hear this one over and over. They may even want to bake cookies.  This book is an adventure and it will definitely have your youngsters imagination working over time.  The characters are relate-able. The plot easy to follow and it allows your child to expand the story on their own. This should be in your child's library.

     I did find one issue. I wish it had been longer. *smile*

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