Review – Mothers, Fathers & Lovers

Reviewed by Laura 3/5 This book had one of the best openings I have read in a long time, setting very high expectations, unfortunately, the rest of the book did not live up to them. In this book we follow Sarah, who's boyfriend is Hollywood's hot new up and coming actor, the press are all…

REVIEW – Symbiosis by Guy Portman

Reviewed by Nicole 4.5/5 It’s been a while since I stepped away from the Chick Lit’s and Dram a’s to read something out of the box and I am so glad Guy Portman’s Symbiosis came across our review table.  I admit it took a few chapters for me to feel completely invested in the story…

REVIEW – Those We Fear by Victoria Griffith

Reviewed By Heather 4/5 I love mystery/suspense set in the UK. There's something about them that brings to mind Agatha Christie novels set in England; it always makes me feel nostalgic for her wonderful work. "Those We Fear" is set in Scotland. The main character, Maria is in the United States Witness Protection Program (the…

REVIEW – Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris

Reviewed by Angela 5/5 This debut by B A Paris is a stunning psychological thriller at it's very best. It felt so simple and easy to read that I devoured it in great chunks. I feel that the simplicity comes from there being very few characters. Grace and Jack are at the fore the whole…

AUTHOR INTERVIEW with Heidi Perks

Heather's Interview with Heidi Perks  1. I devoured this book in one day... the writing was fast paced and interesting. I enjoy novels written from different perspectives because it's like picking up a new story every chapter. Do you usually write this way or was this book an exception? Firstly, thank you and I’m glad…

REVIEW – Procythian Reign (The Proceena Trilogy Book 1) by T. Allen Diaz

Reviewed by Frankie 4/5 Procythian Reign is a modern take on the classic struggle of class warfare. In Procythian society, the extreme activists of the lower class “Indigo” citizens are fighting for liberation from the upper class “Blanch” elitists. The setting is worlds away from Earth and in the not-too-distant future of about 300 years…

REVIEW – Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Reviewed by Heather 5/5 I saw the movie for this novel first, which is odd for me because I usually read books first and I rarely watch movies. But I was so impressed with the movie and the way Julianne Moore portrayed the title character that I just had to read immediately. I confess that…

REVIEW – Borrow a Bridesmaid by Anne Wagener

Reviewed by Nicole 4.5/5 What a fun read! First of all, I found Anne Wagener’s writing to be catchy. There wasn’t a section of the book that I thought seemed out of place, whether it is a conversation between characters or a description of a scene. Secondly, though this may seem like a cliché storyline…

REVIEW – The Life I Left Behind by Colette McBeth

Reviewed by Angela 5/5 This is one of those books that the enjoyment depends on what your feelings and beliefs are. Do you believe in the afterlife? Are you open minded enough to accept that there could be an afterlife even if you don't want to accept that there might be? If the answer is…
