The Emperor's War by RA Denny ~ a Review

by MK French

The Tzoladian army is fighting the Karsonian confederation. The three teens from various tribes that we had come to know in earlier novels are embroiled in this war now. Amanki is fighting when the Tzoladians would want him dead, Brina no longer has her seal and is surrounded by Sparaggi tribes, Tuka has to work as a spy. Metlan is now just as important as our three chosen ones, as he is king of the Samalitans and holds Brina's seal. Faith and trust will be tested over the course of the war.

Once Upon a Bad Boy by Melonie Johnson ~ a Review

by MK French

Sadie Gold landed the starring role in a superhero movie and is determined to prove she got it with talent and not connections. The rumors of being a spoiled rich girl have haunted her, but she is sure that all of her training will help her take her career to new heights. The stunt coordinator is none other than Bo Ibarra, her first boyfriend, who had abruptly broken things off on their prom night. Even though it's been eleven years, feelings are still there between them and have rekindled.

The Islanders by Meg Mitchell Moore ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

On Block Island this summer you'll find
-Ocean water the color of the Caribbean
-365 ponds (one for each day of the year)
-Ice cream, sunscreen, bikes with wicker baskets

-One famous writer hiding from a big mistake
-One bakery owner with off-island competition
-One stay-at-home mom with a secret job

Now that summer is here I find myself enjoying light beach reads. If it's about the beach, I want to give it a try. The Islanders fit my summer reading requirements perfectly. There are three main interesting characters, some mystery, some romance and lots of sand and water! Perfect!

A Family of Strangers by @EmilieRichards ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

Could a lifetime of memories…be a lifetime of lies?

I have read all of Emilie Richards books and even though this is a slight change from her normal genre, it's fantastic and my favorite of all of her books. Her past books have been women's fiction but her new book has a central mystery that keeps you guessing until the end.

Honeymoon with Death by Vivian Conroy ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

This past winter Vivian Conroy started a new cozy mystery series set in the 1920s. I really enjoyed the tribute to Agatha Christie. Now she has another book in the series - Honeymoon with Death. It kept me guessing to the very end.

Queen Bee by Dorothea Benton Frank @DorotheaFrank ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

I have been a fan of Dorothea Benton Frank since I read her first book twenty years. When you start her books you know that you'll be back in the Lowcountry of South Carolina with a bunch of quirky characters and a great plot that will make you want to pack your bags and head to the beach.

Something Like Gravity by Amber Smith ~ a Review

by MK French

Chris and Maia literally are brought together in a car crash, and can't seem to escape each others' orbits over the course of a summer. Each have their problems to cope with, which doesn't make that easier. Chris is transgender and had survived an assault he survived the year before. Maia is grieving the loss of her sister. Though they weren't expecting it, they do find themselves falling in love in the midst of grief.
