To Catch a Bad Guy
by Marie Astor


Kindle Edition307 pages
Published August 10th 2012


Janet Maple's stellar career ended with a lay off and her boyfriend of five years told her that he wants to be just friends. When she lands a job at one of New York’s premier boutique investment firms, Janet begins to hope that her luck is finally turning for the better. Not only is she happy with her new paycheck, but things also seem to be looking up on the personal front, as the company’s handsome attorney expresses keen interest in Janet. However, her euphoria is short-lived, as Janet soon discovers alarming facts about her new employer’s business tactics. When her boss dismisses her suspicions as groundless, Janet finds herself confiding to a cute IT engineer, Dean Snider. The closer she gets to Dean, the more Janet is tempted to break her rule of not dating co-workers, but what she doesn’t realize is that everything she knows about Dean, including his occupation and even his name, is a lie.

Dennis Walker is a top-notch white collar crime investigator who will stop at nothing to put culprits away. When an opportunity for an undercover assignment at one of New York’s premier boutique broker dealers comes up, Dennis jumps at the chance, adopting a persona of geeky IT engineer, Dean Snider. While he may be an ace at his job, years of experience fail him when Dennis meets Janet Maple and finds himself torn between his professional obligations and his personal desires. Will he have to choose between his feelings and duty, or will he find a way to satisfy both?

This is a great read!  The characters and workplace drama are believable and easy to relate to.  It was fun to see how the various characters interact as the plot unfolds.  There's a bit of everything in here- mystery, romance, drama, comedy...  It's easy-going and fun!

Great ideas and recipes for staying efficient!  I definitely recommend this one!

The Astronaut Wives Club: A True Story

The Astronaut Wives Club: A True Story
by Lily Koppel


Hardcover288 pages
Published June 11th 2013 by Grand Central Publishing (first published January 1st 2013)

As America's Mercury Seven astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, television cameras focused on the brave smiles of their young wives. Overnight, these women were transformed from military spouses into American royalty. They had tea with Jackie Kennedy, appeared on the cover of Life magazine, and quickly grew into fashion icons.

Annie Glenn, with her picture-perfect marriage, was the envy of the other wives; platinum-blonde Rene Carpenter was proclaimed JFK's favorite; and licensed pilot Trudy Cooper arrived on base with a secret. Together with the other wives they formed the Astronaut Wives Club, meeting regularly to provide support and friendship. Many became next-door neighbors and helped to raise each other's children by day, while going to glam parties at night as the country raced to land a man on the Moon.

As their celebrity rose-and as divorce and tragic death began to touch their lives-they continued to rally together, and the wives have now been friends for more than fifty years. THE ASTRONAUT WIVES CLUB tells the real story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest heroes in American history.

***

I love idea of this book- showing us the perspective of the wives of the astronauts.  Their story is compelling and truly intriguing.  The actual writing style wasn't my favorite.  I had trouble staying "involved" with the story even though it was really interesting to me.  I enjoyed hearing about the women despite the writing.  They really went through a lot so we could race to space.

Luminescence

Luminescence (Book 3 of Middle School Magic series)Luminescence (Middle School Magic, #3)
by Braden Bell

320 Pages
Published March 11, 2014

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Determined to rescue their favorite teacher, Conner, Lexa, and Melanie confront their worst fears and use their powers in unexpected ways to defeat Lady Nightwing, the treacherous Darkhand leader. But when the trio makes a terrible choice to save Dr. Timberi, their powers may not be enough to keep everyone alive. A thrilling conclusion to the Middle School Magic series!

* * *

The end of a trilogy is always somewhat bittersweet for me, and this was no exception. Mr. Bell has taken us on a fun, magic-filled journey - and the worst thing I can say about it is: It's over.

Kids will love the magic, the adventure, the fun, the real-to-life characters. Parents will appreciate the examples of self-sacrifice and friendship, loyalty and teamwork. The kids stick up for what they know to be true, even when the some of the adults doubt them.

You might assume from that list of qualities that the book is preachy, but the exact opposite is true. Each of the kids faces their own troubles, and learns to deal with them in their own ways.

If you haven't read the first two books, I highly suggest reading them before this book - if you don't, you'll be playing catch-up the whole time.

If you're looking for a good, well-written, exciting, middle-grade-age-appropriate adventure, this series is for you!

Stirring Up Trouble (Stirring Up Trouble, #1)

Stirring Up Trouble
by Juli Alexander

Zoe Miller is a 15-year-old witch with a talent for potions. She's working hard to find a substitute for toad slime. Since fat-free margarine has been found to be a substitute for dead man's toe, she's hopeful that she'll find one. 

Then there's all the so-called normal stuff. Like high school, her annoyingly selfish "friend" Anya, and her crush on Anya's ex-boyfriend Jake.

Now, Zoe's dad is dating Jake's mom, and things are getting more and more complicated. If only Zoe could brew a potion or two and set everything straight. Zoe can't. If she brews a self-serving potion, bad things will happen to her appearance. Like a crooked nose, giant wart, green skin, rotting teeth--the whole ugly witch stereotype. 

Zoe's tired of fate interfering so cruelly in her life. Can you really blame her for putting her potions to not-so-good use and stirring up trouble?

Double Dare

Double Dare
by Rhonda Nelson


Kindle Edition106 pages
Published October 28th 2011 by Rhonda Nelson (first published October 2000)

Runaway bride Louisa Honeycut is looking for a quick escape when she passes the Double Dare, Inc sign and the slogan "Are you ready for the time of your life?" seems like divine intervention. Sheltered by her overbearing father, Louisa has years of catching up to do and can think of no better person than gorgeous Sam Rawlins to show her. Is she ready for the time of her life? Hell, yes.

Ordinarily unflappable adventure guide Sam Rawlins makes his living showing the wealthy how to have fun, but nothing in his experience could have prepared him for the "adventure" Louisa Honeycut asks for. He might be showing Louisa the time of her life, but the quirky little snack-cake heiress is soon turning Sam's own life upside down...and perversely, he likes the new vantage point.

***

A runaway bride story with a twist.  She wants an adventure after spending years doing her father's bidding- and she gets one.  This is a really quick read.  It's fun and flighty if you need a distraction from life.

Swans in Sight (Parakeet Princess #3)
by Jandy Branch


ebook270 pages
Published September 10th 2012 (first published September 9th 2012)

In the final installment in the Parakeet Princess trilogy, we find Heather MacLean midway through her 3rd year of university. Despite the frenzy of her high school days, she hasn't had a date in seven months. With nothing new in her love life, she starts to fall back into old habits -- and old insecurities. Her first love, Ben Jones, is back after two years in Switzerland. Maybe there’s still a chance he can make Heather happy for life. And then there's the more dangerous prospect of the looming return of Heather's favourite vampire. Being on her own would probably be easier if she didn't have to watch Tannis, her best friend, dating Lars Hansen. He’s a man who seems eerily perfect – or, at least, perfect for Heather. Set in a large LDS singles' ward in the mid-1990s, this is a clean, uplifting story about the clumsy, convoluted, crowded road to true love.

***

Heather goes to college- and all the drama associated with such a change.  A fun and quick read that I enjoyed!  Heather moves from a small town to a big city to start college and is once again thrown into a new world.  As she adjusts and grows she learns how to thrive.  It's a sweet story!

In her final year of high school in the small "Mormon town" of Upton, Heather MacLean seems to be doing just fine. Even though she's still considered the new-girl, she's feeling more at home. She's dating her dream boy, Ben Jones, and she's on track to become the town's first female valedictorian. But when Ben leaves town to go to university in the capital city, Heather is left to make friends with Aaron, the town's resident gloomy vampire-boy. Will she make it out of high school unscathed? Follow Heather through the sequel to "Parakeet Princess" as she navigates the perils of mandatory gym class, a long distance relationship, and finding out the hard way what love is not. This is a clean, uplifting story about growth and girl-power. Set in the 1990s, it has something to offer older readers looking to see reflections of their own experiences.

Published June 11th 2012 by Smashword

Heather MacLean is in a new world. She's always been happy to be a Mormon but now, at age sixteen, she's moved to a small town where Mormons are mainstream instead of a minority. It's a shock to her system -- and her love life. Though she doesn't feel like she fits in at her new school, Heather finds friends at the restaurant where she works part-time. Her new friends aren't Mormons. But that doesn't keep some of them from being interested in more than friendship. The most tempting of them is her best friend's twin brother. His name is Wayne and he's got a natural charisma that makes Heather wonder if she'd like to follow him -- no matter where he leads. Guiding her through her growing pains is Heather's older brother's new best friend, Ben. He's an awkward, thoughtful boy who calls Heather "Parakeet" after his family's pet bird. Can Heather overcome her prejudices and Ben's reserve and find romance with him? Or will she take a giant step away from the way of life she's always known and follow Wayne? Set in the early 1990s, the story offers something for young adult readers and for older readers looking to revisit their own high school days.

***

I loved the opening of this book!  It drew me in and had me hooked!  It's one of the best openings I've read in awhile.  This is LDS fiction.  If that's not your thing then this may not be for you.  I like it because it's clean and I can recommend it to teenagers without worrying if the content is too explicit.  This is a quick read about a girl who's moved to a new community.   She's facing new struggles in every aspect of her life.  It's fun to see how she grows to meet her new challenges.

The Fault in Our Stars

HardcoverFirst Edition313 pages
Published January 10th 2012 by Dutton Books

Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

***

I did NOT like this book.  At all.  In fact, hate is probably a better word.  I wish I hadn't read it.  I know, I'm in the minority on this one.  

For some, I'm sure it's an insight to the heartbreak and struggles of those suffering from cancer.  For me, it's way too close to home.  I can't approach this book without my own raw emotions surfacing and some of the implications made by the author truly bothered me.  Overall, it portrays the unfairness of illness and the devastation it brings.  All of that is true.  However, it seems to be more focused on portraying a message and on being philosophical than seems balanced.  In a book like this, humor can be a major asset.  However, I felt that it was ill-applied in this story.  

?/5 stars  (ironic, I can't even come up with a number of stars for a book about "stars")

All She Wanted (Letting Go #2)

All She Wanted (Letting Go #2)
by Nicole Deese


Paperback349 pages
Published May 31st 2013 by "CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform" 

Choices.

They determine how we live, who we are, and what we want. 
Some choices are made for us. Others we must make for ourselves. 

Charlie Lexington is a living consequence of both. 

Everything about the feisty redhead represents a second chance—even her name. Though she was rescued at the age of five, her past is a lingering reminder of what she longs for most.

And the one thing she has spent a lifetime trying to find. 

After a series of less-than-stellar choices, her Performing Arts Scholarship now hangs by a thread. Her sudden suspension has not only resulted in her father’s disappointment, but in the loss of her freedom as well. 

She is forced to face the music: four weeks house arrest. 

Briggs is the carefree, charming, yet all-too-mouthy fireman who is asked to keep an eye on the pretty little spitfire. He quickly learns, however, that his first assessment of her was off—she’s tougher than she looks. When her stubborn resolve pushes his sanity and intercepts his heart, his loyalties are put to the test. 

Sometimes the hardest choice we make, is the one we must make for love…

***

I love Ms. Deese's writing style!  This is the first book I've read by her and I'll be looking for more.  It's the second book in this series but it easily stands alone.  I got sucked into this story where I laughed and cried. The story of Charlie is fun and entertaining and deeper as you learn where she's been and the things that have brought her to this point.  It pulls raw emotions and struggles which many can relate to.  I liked the different points of view throughout the story and the perspective it gives the reader.  I highly recommend this book!

by Heather Horrocks

Published (first published September 11th 2012)

Pride and Precipitation is #01 of the Chick Flick Clique romantic comedy series! Book #2 is Regally Blonde.

Breezy Jones is crazy about the weather, rain or shine, which makes her job as the local television station’s meteorologist perfect. She’s even hoping the new buyers of her Aspen Grove station will make some positive changes. 

That’s before she meets the attractive new general manager, Noah Drake, who is determined to repackage everything—including Breezy’s down-home delivery and casual, girl-next-door appearance that seems too

Pollyanna for him. He replaces her with a high-powered diva weathercaster and makes Breezy her off-screen assistant. 

With a flood of angry emails from the community, plummeting ratings, and incessant demands from the diva, it doesn’t take long for Noah to see which way the wind is blowing. 

Will the station survive the competitive clash between pride and precipitation? 

More importantly, can their blossoming attraction survive?

Note: This is a novella of about 170 pages.

This is a charming and sweet book about Breezy Jones, a meteorologist whose life is going great.  When things get turned upside-down, she has to turn inward to find what to do next.    I love the Click Flick Clique that ties this series together.  A cute, clean, happily-ever-after story.

Firebolt Virtual Tour

We are thrilled today to be part of the Firebolt Virtual Tour! Keep reading to see what I thought of the book, and learn a bit about the author!


Firebolt (The Dragonian, #1)Firebolt (The Dragonian Series, #1)
by Adrienne Woods

Published November 19, 2013
288 Pages

Dragons. Right. Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales, and sixteen-year old Elena Watkins was no different.
Until the night a fairy tale killed her father.
Now Elena’s in a new world, and a new school. The cutest guy around may be an evil dragon, a Prince wants Elena’s heart, and a long dead sorcerer may be waking up to kill her. Oh. And the only way Elena’s going to graduate is on the back of a dragon of her own.
Teenage girls don’t believe in fairy tales. Now it’s time for Elena to believe – in herself.


* * *

Honestly, as soon as I saw the cover I knew I had to read the book. Yep, that cool sword got me - I'm a sucker for swords. Maybe one of these days I should actually learn how to use a sword.......

Moving every three months, without explanation, rhyme, or reason. That's been Elena's life. All that is about to change, though, when her father is killed by an attacking dragon.

In this story, we've got your fish-out-of-water, girl-in-the-dark story when Elena learns she's been taken to a Bermuda Triangle world she cannot leave. Most of the people around her are, in fact, dragons. Great, I can easily take that in stride!

The book starts out quick-paced and attention-grabbing. After a little bit things slow down so Elena can try to dig out some answers - in between some of your typical high school drama. (Which, I admit, got a little tiresome here and there - there was just so much I felt could have been explored, but some of it got stunted in the HSDrama).

In the last part of the book, there are a series of tests that only Elena can face - there were some things in there I truly enjoyed.

I have to admit, this is not one of those books I couldn't walk away from for a bit - but I'm very curious to see where Ms. Woods will take us, along with Elena, next.

4/5 stars
