Start Summer with Mary Kay Andrews's Newest Book: THE HOMEWRECKERS

by Susan Roberts



A new book by Mary Kay Andrews means that summer is just around the corner.  She is one of the few authors that I pre-order her new books without knowing anything about them and she's never let me down.  Her books are always a reflection of people and places in the South along with a bit of mystery and a bit of romance, tears, and laughter, and a plot that keeps me reading while I ignore the world around me.

Son of the Deep by K. B. Hoyle ~ A Review

By Elisabeth Scherer


Everyone in the sea knows that no one from under the waters can go above the water's surface.  Everyone on land knows that there are no such things as other people in the sea, in the air, or in magic. An accidental encounter between these worlds changes everything.

Zachary Ying and the Dragon Emperor by Xiran Jay Zhao ~ a Review

by MK French


Zachary Ying's mother works hard and can't teach him about his Chinese heritage. All he learns at school are Western classics, so Zack is unprepared to host the spirit of the First Emperor of China in order to seal the leaking portal to the Chinese underworld before the upcoming Ghost Month blows it wide open. Unfortunately, the spirit binds to his AR set and botches the mission from the start. When Zack's mother's soul is stolen by demons, he must learn to wield the emperor's powers and search for artefacts. If he can't get this right, he loses his mother for good.

Nonna Maria and the Case of the Missing Bride by Lorenzo Carcaterra ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


Lorenzo Carcaterra is a seasoned writer but this is the first book by him that I've read. The cover and the description of Nonna Maria and the Case of the Missing Bride caught my attention. And I'm glad I got a copy of it.

The Master Craftsman by Kelli Stuart ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts


When I read that this book was about the Faberge eggs that were gifted to the Czar of Russia and his family, I knew that I had to read it.  Several years ago, I was on a tour and was able to go the Faberge museum in St. Petersburg to see the remaining eggs.  It was amazing to see them and to realize how beautiful and intricate they were.  This dual timeline book gives readers an in-depth look at the shop of Karl Faberge and the political climate in Russia right before their revolution.  I ended up spending lots of time looking up pictures of all of the eggs that were mentioned in the book and they brought back memories of seeing them in Russia.
