Burden of an Ancient Oath (New York Murder Mysteries #1) by Joshua Brown

      Moving into a new home can be stressful for everyone. The stress doubled for Marilyn Crossley. She was dealing with a mystery seemingly attached to the house. Marilyn decides she needs someone to look into this situation.  She finds private investigator, Jack Mercer.  After discussing the mystery  with with him, he agrees to take the case. Now if he can just figure out what it all means.

     This story really makes you stop and think. The characters are three dimensional and fun to learn about. This unique book is well written and one you will enjoy from the first page. The journey Mr. Brown takes us on is an interesting one. Mr. Brown gives the reader bits and pieces of the mystery but never enough to solve the problem. You need to add this one to your TBR pile.

     There were a couple of issues with this book. First, I would love to have learned more about the Witchfinder General. It's just dropped in the story without anything to back it up. The second issue is how are families pegged as good or evil? This is something we need to know.

     I gave this one 3 cheers out of 5 because I feel the two issues above are a vital part of the story.

Sea Spray (Time Box #3) by John A. Heldt

      The Lanes are still on the run. Each time they feel safe, they are found. Where can they go and be assured of safety? At this moment the are in 1893. It's not long before they find out they are being hunted again. Together they agree to go to 1927.  Their only hope at being left alone is to keep moving.

     Amazing! You are going to love this book. The story is solid and wonderful. The characters retain their personalities from book to book. The Lanes become like family. You will be hoping they finally get to live a somewhat normal life. I find it easy to fall into Mr. Heldt's books. It's like a friend stopping by. His books are so well crafted you'll make him an auto buy on your list.

     I didn't find any issues. 

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because as you know, I love this author's work!

Cherry Lover (Cherry #2) by Victoria Quinn

      Just when Monroe has given up and decides to move on with her life. She just can't take any more. Slate however refuses to accept it. He seems to be everywhere. When Monroe needs him most, he's nowhere in sight. Slate seems to enjoy this back and forth. Well Monroe has had enough!

     The characters continue to be well defined and fleshed out. You'll know these characters as if you saw them at the mall. The story continues on and we aren't really sure where it will end. Ms. Quinn has crafted the perfect books for a nice  cozy night with your significant other. Take turns reading it to each other. Ms. Quinn provides the heat. It's nothing like what you are expecting and it will surprise you along the way.

   I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it provides heat and love.

Cherry Popper (Cherry #1) by Victoria Quinn

      Monroe needs help. She has a good job and a place to live, that's where it ends.  She's now considering any way possible to get the help she needs. It won't be easy but Monroe is a hard worker.  Then a friend introduces her to Slate.  Monroe has no time to waste so she heads to Slate's office for an impromptu meeting.

     First, let me say this book is definitely for those over 18. WOW! A well written story with enough heat to catch fire. It will blow you away. The characters are very well defined. You'll swear you know them or have heard of them at least. The book doesn't just dive into the adult stuff. There is a real story here. I love it because of the way it builds. The book will have moments where the excitement settles. Don't get too comfortable because it builds just as quickly. 

    I didn't find any issues.

      I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because of the wonderful story underneath everything else.

Toast with a Side of Dragon (Harry's Dragon Tales Book 1) by Lisa Reinicke

      What a grumpy troll Harry is. He never seems to be happy, even when everything goes right. Harry is a very particular troll. He has a set way of doing things and if it gets disturbed, he's even grumpier.  One day Harry's day was messed up badly. A little dragon had found itself inside Harry's home.  Life changes because of the little dragon.

     Your littles will enjoy this book. I'm sure it will remind them of someone who behaves as Harry does. This children's book is well written and the characters are so cute. It wouldn't take much for older children to learn to read this book. You can't go wrong with this adorable book. It should be part of your child's library.

     I found no issues.

      I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it will fire up your child's imagination.

Anno 2020 by James Morcan

   This virus has taken over the world. They call it Coronavirus. No one knows how it's spread or how to treat it.  One thing is certain, EVERYONE is scared.  The people in this book are all dealing with the virus. It's the dealing with it is common thread between them.  How they are dealing with it is as different as night and day. Will life go back to normal? We're still waiting to see.

   This book is fascinating.  It gives us a view we wouldn't normally see.  We get to see when it comes to a tragic situation like this, we are really all the same.  Mr. Morcan knows how to tell a story where you are pulled in deeper and deeper with each sentence.  Before you know it , you are sitting in the middle of the story. The characters are well fleshed out and interesting. The story is timely and well written. You need to read this one. It really will open your mind.

     I didn't find any issues in this one.

      I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it truly shows us the world.
