An Unexpected Exploit by Kandi J. Wyatt ~ a Review

by MK French

Franklin follows a Sasquatch through a portal from Myrtle Beach, Oregon to the realm of Shinwano. There, he discovers a world full of mythical creatures and vows to protect the land. He doesn't realize how difficult it is to keep that promise, especially when a poacher, an NSA agent, and his friends are interested in the portal for different reasons. The poacher threatens his family, forcing Franklin to reconsider that promise and still try to keep his family safe. The consequences of that decision is more than a rift in the space-time continuum.

The House by the Cypress Trees by Elena Mikalsen @WF_writerEM ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

The House by the Cypress Trees is a beautiful romance novel but it is so much more. It's not only the love story of two people but also an armchair tour of Italy. The author describes the various places in Italy so that you feel like you're there. She also writes a lot about the delicious Italian food and wine and it all makes you want to call your travel agent and book a trip. I have been lucky enough to have visited all of the locations that she mentions in this book and it was wonderful to be reminded of how beautiful Italy is and how much we enjoyed visiting it.

A Dangerous Engagement by Ashley Weaver ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

I have trouble passing up a cozy mystery when I see it. It doesn't matter if it is book 1 or book 20 in a series, I must read it. A Dangerous Engagement is book 6 in the Amory Ames series. I haven't read this series or anything by Ashley Weaver as this is her debut series. But I don't think it will be my last.

The Harp of Kings by Juliet Marillier ~ a Review

by MK French

Liobhan and her brother Brocc are on Swan Island, candidates in training to be part of the elite forces on the island. Because of their musical talent, they are selected to be part of an undercover mission as traveling minstrels. They have to find the missing harp that was used in the crowning of kings; without it, the people would never accept the coronation as valid. Prince Rodan is hardly the kind of man that would place the concern for his people at the forefront and is afraid of the uncanny. Unfortunately for him, the uncanny is involved in this, as well as court intrigue, a storyteller that acts as a gatekeeper to the Otherworld, and a difficult decision that Liobhan has to make.

Word to the Wise by @JennMcKinlay ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

I discovered this series this summer when I read A Likely Story. That is book 6 in McKinlay's Library Lovers' Mystery series. Since enjoyed that book I looked at NetGalley to see if McKinlay had any books coming out and discovered book 10 - Word to the Wise. Though I haven't had time to catch up on this series I decide to go ahead and read. And I'm glad I did - it's so enjoyable.
