She’s shocked when the rest of her follows! She falls through the still-locked door of the peculiar shop and into a new level of trouble but also finds a remarkable glimmer of hope. It feels amazing to help someone, but is this actually happening? Maybe she’s losing it again. Either way, her mom’s going to freak out.

Book Review… Casondra Brewster’s -Tanner’s Landing: An Echo Falls Story

New Release from FVP Featured Author, Casondra Brewster. Book II of her Echo Falls Series has arrived! And here’s a review for you…

Reality With a Twist ~ Books

I don’t often review books here, but I thought the wild and weird in this one might entertain those of you who follow or stop in at Reality with a Twist. This is Book II of the Echo Falls Series, but you can read it as a standalone or after Wilderness Rim.

I expected adventure when moving forward from the fun Sasquatch-meeting story in Wilderness Rim to the next in the series, Tanner’s Landing, but this book also packs way more punch. Like Scooby Doo vs. Dark Shadows – both entertaining, mysterious, and flirting with the paranormal, but one definitely wins out on the creep factor. This amp up in intensity works for me in much the way the Harry Potter series does, since both are following characters that are growing up. It makes sense that 15 to 16-year-olds would get mixed up in deeper trouble and stranger circumstances…

Back in high school, Lily Wang wanted to be popular, but she considered herself lucky to be part of a tight group of oddballs and honors students called the Nerd Herd. Now, at twenty-eight, she feels like she’s finally on the cusp of succeeding as a beauty influencer—if she can hit five million subscribers, brands will take notice and she could get her own makeup line.

Fellow Nerd Herd alum Tobin Bui has had a lot of success as a YouTube gamer. But the road to online stardom has been rocky. First, he disappointed his parents by dropping out of college, and now, after years of pranks, skits, and playthroughs, he’s struggling to come up with…

Book Review: Flintelf (Exili’s Excellent Elucidation Services, #1) by Victoria Bastedo

A review on the first book of Victoria Bastedo’s new Fantasy Mystery series…

Rachel Author Barnard

Flintelf (Exili’s Excellent Elucidation Services, #1) by Victoria Bastedo

A Fantasy/Cozy Mystery novel published by Amazon Digital Services (10/13/2020)

Summary:

“What made the pure elves in the past great, or their bloodline desirable, if it wasn’t the quality of their souls, and their actions?”

Exili has started his own business of elucidation. His clients are also victims. Potential victims, if he can convince them to pay him to prevent their murder, that is. Exili’s next potential client happens to also be a previous school mate. Exili and Goodall hadn’t spoken since school when they had a falling out. Exili doesn’t want his client to die, but he’s also annoyed that he’s got to convince Goodall to hire him. Why couldn’t it be someone else stalked by a murderer?

New Year, New Book, and New Review

A great book review and fun interview of Author, Kennedy J. Quinn by fantasy Author, D. Wallace Peach…

Myths of the Mirror

A Journey Through Time…and Time Again

I’m taking a break from my break to bring you a highly recommended series and new release from blogger and writer, Kennedy J. Quinn (aka Sheri). I’ve read the first two books in The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone series and bugged Kennedy for a year regarding the third. Finally it’s out. My review is below, but before going there, I was curious:

My Question for Kennedy: One thing that I noticed (and loved) in the very first book, as well as in subsequent reads, is Miss Livingstone’s distinctive voice. I’d swear a proper and very witty young lady was whispering her thoughts and dialog into your ear. Where did this voice come from and why does it feel so authentic? Are you secretly Miss Livingstone?

Kennedy’s Answer:This question (or questions) made me laugh. I’m delighted Miss…
