Wishful Thinking by Helen Harper ~ a Review

by MK French

Saffron Sawyer is a dope fairy, creating illusions and guidance for the addicts in London. She's applied for other departments and finally was accepted to be a Faery Godmother. However, they are biting and bullying, and refuse to tell her the truth of her hiring: five fairies had gone missing and they're backlogged. In addition, she's essentially bait to try to find the kidnapper. She's determined to not only prove she has every right to be in that department but will try to solve the mystery of who is kidnapping the fairies... before she's next.

Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia ~ a Review

by MK French

Casiopeia Tun lives with her extended family in a small town in the Yucatán peninsula in 1927. She is treated little better than a servant, so she opens a box her grandfather had hidden away. This unwittingly opens the prison for Hun-Kamé, the former ruler of Xibalba, the underworld. Now Casiopeia is drawn into his plans to regain his throne as ruler of the Black City of Xibalba, even as his twin brother tries to thwart them to remain on the throne. Her life is on the line, but this is also the grandest adventure she would ever hope to be on.

Death Comes to Dartmoor by Vivian Conroy @VivWrites ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

"'What on earth are you so busy with, Merula?'
Merula Merriweather shocked upright, her pencil scratching across the paper she had been completely engrossed in. She blinked as she stared at the dark chiseled features of Lord Raven Royston sitting opposite her in the coach that rattled its way along a country dirt road."

Stars of Alabama by Sean Dietrich ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

This beautiful, well-written book is about hope during the darkest times. Even though the main characters face what seem like insurmountable problems, they are always working and hoping for a better life. They could face their problems because of the families they created out of the people they loved and who loved them -- not families by blood but families out of love.

Light from Distant Stars by Shawn Smucker ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"He is struck with the thought of how long it takes the light to reach him.  How much has changed in the universe since that light left its star and traveled through the darkness, illuminating everything. It saddens him to think that some of those stars, perhaps many of them, no longer exist but their light goes on shining as if nothing at all has happened, as if nothing is wrong." (p 214)
