Church of the Assassin by Ross Harrison ~ a Review

by MK French

Alexiares is an assassin that survived a deadly purge of her sect. She somehow inherits a baby girl, and is on the run with the child. All she'd ever known before was how to kill and how to repair cars, so she isn't sure how she could care for a baby. Alexiares is sure that she can only give Baby a life of pain and suffering, but Baby is now her reason to keep going despite the hunters willing to tear apart the galaxy to find them both.

Clifton Chase Adventure Series by Jaimie M. Engle ~ a Review

by MK French

This year has been tough, particularly for children and their families. Many of our normal activities have been canceled or severely curtailed. With so many schools doing virtual learning, our kids are spending more time than ever in front of screens. Holidays are coming up but they might be looking different this year. Whether you are needing a way to entertain your kids that don't involve screens and gives you some much needed "me time" or wanting to do a family read together over the holidays, you will want to pick up this middle school adventure series from Jaimie M. Engle.

Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

'Oh gosh, is that the time? Sorry, I have to go,' the man mumbled evasively, as he stood up and reached for his bag.
'Eh?' the woman said.
She glared with uncertainty. She hadn't heard him say it was over. But he had called her - his girlfriend of three years - to come out for a serious conversation...and now he had suddenly announced he was going to work in America. He was to leave immediately - in a few hours. Even without hearing those words, she knew now that the serious conversation was about breaking up. She knew now it was a mistake to have thought - to have hoped - that the serious conversation might have included 'Will you marry me?' for example. (p. 1)

4 Diverse Romance Novels

by MK French

There has been a big push in the publishing industry for more diversity in books. Today, I have four romances that feature diverse characters. The first is about Asian-Americans and the second features an Indian-American protagonist. The third book I review is a romantic fantasy set in 1920s Shanghai. The fourth book is a historical romance set in the Roman Empire in 115 CE.

Nothing Good Happens After Midnight ~ an Anthology Review

by Donna Huber

I'm not a huge fan of short fiction, but after I read (and loved) a collection of domestic thriller short stories I decided it was just the genres that I had read previously. So this anthology had two things that attracted me: 1. the short stories are in the suspense genre and 2. Rhys Bowen contributed a story.
