The Favorite Daughter by Patti Callahan Henry @pcalhenry ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

I love reading southern fiction and Patti Callahan is a fantastic writer in this genre. She has been a favorite author since I read her first book. With her new book, she has become one of my Top 10 of the few authors that I will pre-order their books without knowing anything about them.

The Summer Guests by Mary Alice Monroe ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"The storm originated as a tropical wave off the coast of Africa but during the next forty-eight hours, it grew highly organized.  As it veered west, it met with favorable, warm surface water-temperatures and low wind shear.  It rapidly intensified, developing a distinct eye feature.  When the sustained winds reached seventy-five miles per hour, the storm was given a name:  Hurricane Noelle.

The hurricane wobbled, shifting direction and sending the experts racing back to their computers to create updated tracking cones.  This, in turn, sent another group of residents into panic mode.  Everyone living in the Caribbean and along the southeastern coast of the United States was stocking up on supplies and preparing for evacuation."  (page1)

Daniel, Lord of the Dreaming, has disappeared. Denizens are now subject to monstrous dreams, creatures beyond the borders of the realm, and madness is descending upon all of the senior storytellers of the Dreaming. Opportunists try to seize this as an opportunity, but it opens up a whole host of other problems.

Waisted is about what lengths women will go to lose weight, what happens when you’re pushed beyond humiliation, pain, and fear and then survive it and move towards a happier life.

Whiskers in the Dark by Rita Mae Brown ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

Whiskers in the Dark is my first cozy mystery by Rita Mae Brown. I've seen her books mentioned on other blogs and thought they looked cute so when I saw on NetGalley that she had a new book coming out I had to try it. As it is book 28 in the Mrs. Murphy series, I hoped it would be more of a stand alone.

The Bird King by G. Willow Wilson ~ a Review

by MK French

Fatima was born into the sultan of Grenada's harem, and the only thing she definitely could choose for herself was her friendship with Hassan, the cartographer. His special gift is the ability to draw uncannily accurate maps, even of places that he had never been to or had seen before. The newly formed Spain is spearheading the Inquisition, and their agents are sure that Hassan is a sorcerer and should be put to the rack. Fatima won't allow this to happen, and unknowingly has a friend in a jinn as well as the fierce loyalty to Hassan and the concept of freedom. They plan to escape the Inquisition with the help of Hassan's gift.
