Send off for a Snitch
( A Jesse Damon Crime Novel)
By: K.M. Rockwood
Genre: Mystery
243 pages
Publisher: Musa Publishing 

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Jesse recently been released from prison after serving 20 years. He's just trying to get by and stay out of prison. But his life gets complicated when a co-worker's young brother shows up on his doorstep one morning. Things get even more complicated when the co-worker's body is then found on his doorstep. Whoops. Will Jesse find the real culprit and stay out of jail?


I liked the fact that Jesse is a blue collar worker trying to turn his life around. He's an interesting, well developed character. All the characters were well developed. I found the story ti be a little slow moving, though. I like the killing to be done early in a novel. However, once I got to the mystery I found the story enjoyable.

* I received a complimentary copy from the publisher via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

When Cherry is asked to design a set for a private school's production of Romeo and Juliet she gets more than she bargained for. The director also wants her to find out who's been cyberbullying him through social media. When her love interest Luke Harper decides to help her life gets even more complicated- considering their families hate each other. Will Cherry solve the mystery and get the man?

A fun engaging mystery. It had enough twists and turns that kept it exciting. The ambiguous ending between Cherry and her love interest left me wanting to read more of this series. It was the first book I've ever read in the Cherry Tucker series and I enjoyed it very much. So, it's a...

Murder at Rudhall Manor
A Lucy Anne Trotter Mystery
By: Anya Wylde
Genre: Mystery
224 pages
Publication Date: June 16, 2014
Publisher: Anya Wylde

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

When Lucy Anne Trotter arrives at Rudhall Manor to work as a governess she gets more than she bargained for. The Sedley men harass her and the women can barely stand her. When a theft and murder occur Lucy is named as the prime suspect. It's then up to her and the dashing Lord Adair to find the real culprit. Will she find the real murderer or will she end up losing her life as well?

A madcap mystery with a zany heroine and a roguish hero. Lucy and Lord Adair have plenty of chemistry, the mystery was interesting, and the book had the perfect setting. The cover also captures the story well. At time I had trouble following the plot but I think that was just me.The name's of the characters were also a good fit for their personalities.  I hope there's more Lucy adventures …

400 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Orphaned Lydia is a nurse to Cleopatra's young son. When her mentor dies she is entrusted with the writings of the prophet Daniel. She then flees to Jerusalem where she becomes Queen Mariamme's- the wife of Herod- handmaid. She must then protect the scrolls from the evil forces who wish to thwart the coming of The Messiah.

This book was a well- researched, well-plotted out novel. It flowed well, it was suspenseful, and the characters were fully realized. I enjoyed it very much. Lydia is the perfect protagonist. So, I'm giving it...
