REVIEW of The Summer Sail by Wendy Francis

Paperback, 307 pages
Published May 1st 2018 by Touchstone

 “A great summer read for fans of Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin.” (Library Journal)

A trio of college friends who reunite aboard a cruise ship experience an unforgettable vacation in this compelling novel from the author of The Summer of Good Intentions, which was hailed as “everything a summer read should be” by Elin Hilderbrand.

Three college roommates are celebrating a twentieth wedding anniversary by taking a cruise to Bermuda. As the ship pulls away from the pier, everyone is looking forward to lounging by the pool, sipping sunset cocktails, and reminiscing. Abby, the mother hen of the group, will be celebrating her wedding anniversary in style, even as she and her husband keep a secret from the group. Ambitious career woman Caroline happily anticipates several stress-free days away from her magazine job with her boyfriend, Javier, who may or may not be finally inspired to propose. And single mom Lee (annoyingly gorgeous and irresistibly popular in college) hopes she’ll win back the affections of her formerly sweet daughter Lacey, who after her first year in college, has inexplicably become a little bit of a monster.

As the balmy pink shores of Bermuda come into view, tensions simmer, and old jealousies flare, sending the temperature from soothing to scorching in this engrossing tale of three best friends on a vacation they won’t soon forget—but not for the reasons they expect. 

My Thoughts…

I am new to Wendy Francis.  So when I picked up this book I wasn’t sure what to expect.   Would I fall into this book, connect with the characters, love the setting or would I struggle to enjoy the storyline?    I definitely connected with the characters, loved the setting of the Bermuda cruise, and could not stop turning reading.    

The college roommates who became forever sisters after they graduated are wonderful.   They have each moved on with their lives, looking for love, having children, but have never lost touch.    With this cruise, we learn about the good and the bad in their lives.   The more I read about them the more I connected with them.   They had real-life problems, real-life successes, and real-life reactions to what was happening around them.    Single mom Lee was my favorite only because I could relate to her struggles with her daughter.    Lacey, the daughter, goes away to college and comes home more independent, more in love with her boyfriend who the mom doesn’t really know, and more argumentative with her mother.     I could feel the struggle between them but more than that I could feel their want to be friends and reconnect within these new rules of their life.  

The ending threw me for a loop.   I wanted it to all come together tied up pretty but it didn’t seem to do that.    The story just ended.   There was more to tell, more to share, and I wanted it.    While there wasn’t necessarily a cliffhanger, it just didn’t come together as nicely as I would have liked.     Maybe there is more to come from these characters, maybe it is up to the reader’s imagination to figure out what happens next… I am just not sure.

REVIEW of The Curse of the Fallen by Colleen Halverson


Catherine O’Halloran is going to die. Twenty years ago, her sister heard a terrible wail, a relentless keening that no one else could hear. Catherine didn’t believe her—until she saw a banshee crying at their bedroom window the night her sister died. Now Catherine has begun to hear the same wailing, and she knows it’s only a matter of time before the same banshee pays her a visit.
But Catherine has no intention of going gently into that good night, so she travels to Ireland for answers about the banshee’s curse hanging over her family. After a near deadly attack from a malevolent spirit, she meets Liam—a Fae sent to help her. Liam tells her the terrible truth: the banshee is part of a league of Dark Fae that collects human souls. If Catherine doesn’t find a way to stop the banshee, her and her sister’s souls will be lost forever.
Catherine and Liam must travel through the past and into the misty Fae underworlds for a miracle. But when Liam reveals he has his own agenda in this war of souls, Catherine must decide between saving herself and her sister’s soul or protecting all of humanity from darkness.

My Thoughts…

The Curse of the Fallen is part of the Shades of Fae box set, a collection of stories by 24 wonderful authors.    I’ve only read Colleen Halverson’s story so this is a review only for that.  

I love the paranormal, especially Fae.    There are so many ways a story can go when the Fae are involved.  This Fae book is set with a woman, Catherin, looking for her sister that was taken by a banshee and now that Banshee is coming for Catherine.     Liam, the Fae, promises to help her find sister but there is always a cost.   I was intrigued by his cost and wondered how it would all play out.   I loved how his cost was brought up throughout the story and how the ending played into the cost.  

This wasn’t a long book; it had plenty of details that brought the different settings to life and some unique characters that kept me guessing as to who would help Catherine and Liam stay alive.     I liked seeing how their relationship went from being two people who had to work together to achieve the goals they both desperately wanted to care about each other, pushing each other to get their own happiness.    

The Curse of the Fallen is an amazing Fae book.   This collection is said to be full of them and I am adding to my want-to-read collection.

EXCERPT AND BLITZ of The Invisible Case by Isabella Muir

The Invisible Case

A shocking death turns a homecoming into a nightmare.

Its Easter 1970 and Janie Juke is looking forward to her aunts homecoming.  Jessica has been travelling around Europe for the last nine years and is now returning to Tamarisk Bay from Italy, with a friend in tow.  In this second chapter of The Invisible Case we meet Jessica and Luigi on their long train journey from Rome to Calais.  Luigi has just discovered his briefcase has gone missing and his emotional reaction shows Jessica a side to her young friend that has her wondering

Hoping to calm an increasingly tense situation, Jessica thanked the guard for his time, shook hands with him and confirmed they would meet him on their arrival in Paris.  Once he had left, she slid the compartment door closed and turned to Luigi.
‘Are you going to tell me what has you so fired up? I can’t believe this is about a few papers and an old leather briefcase.’
Luigi turned away from her to look out of the carriage window.  ‘Forget about it.’
‘I’m hardly going to do that, am I?  You’ve made enough of a fuss.  I’m surprised you didn’t pull the emergency cord to stop the train in its tracks.’
‘I thought about it,’ his voice now almost a whisper.
They passed the rest of the train journey in virtual silence.  Occasionally Jessica commented on the scenery as they passed through miles of French vineyards.  The only response she got from Luigi was a nod, until eventually she stopped speaking.  Instead she enjoyed an internal conversation that required no companion, just her own thoughts.
She almost wished the train would move more slowly, giving her longer to absorb the scenery.  It was just a few weeks after her thirtieth birthday when she left Janie and Philip to make her first train journey down through France.  She was so overwhelmed with the sheer expanse of the countryside that she spent the first few hours just gazing at it.  She smiled at the memory.  ‘Thirty years old and as naive as a teenager,’ she mused to herself.  Seeing it all again now gave her just the same pleasure.  Carefully tended vines stretched out on either side of the train tracks.  The patchwork of fields with overlapping shades of green and brown reminded her of the paintings she had marvelled over on her one and only visit to the Louvre.
As they travelled further north the weather closed in, reminding her of the endless grey of English winters.  But she was returning in spring, her favourite season and looking forward to seeing daffodils and lush green lawns.  If she’d missed anything over the last nine years, apart from family, it was the abundance of grass, in front and back gardens, parks and avenues.  She promised herself the first chance she had she would take an early morning walk through Maze Gardens, kick off her shoes and feel the dewy softness of wet grass under her feet.  Her brother would think she was crazy, but crazy was good.
After a few hours, the train pulled into Paris Gare de Lyon station.  They lifted their cases and bags down from the luggage rack and eased forwards towards the exit.  A porter came forward to help and he followed them and the guard to the railway police office.  Neither Jessica, nor Luigi, had more than a few French words in their repertoire, perhaps the guard would act as their translator.  The railway policeman was curt, almost monosyllabic, noting down names and addresses in a small black notebook.
‘And the contents, monsieur?
‘Why is everyone so keen to know the contents?’  As he spoke he threw his hands in the air, making Jessica take a step away from him.  ‘If it was a suitcase, would you want to know what was inside?  Would you expect a lady to describe her garments, her underwear?  Of course you wouldn’t.  It was a briefcase with personal papers, that should be enough.  Besides, it’s locked, so unless someone breaks the lock, they won’t know what’s inside, will they?’
‘It’s locked?’ Jessica said.
The policeman looked from Jessica to Luigi, then back to Luigi again as he replied. 
‘I bought a briefcase with a key.  Why wouldn’t I use it?’
‘And do you have the key?’
‘Of course,’ Luigi said, taking his wallet from the breast pocket of his jacket, holding the key out to show her.  ‘A key that is no use to me until I find the thief.’
‘I wish you wouldn’t keep talking about thieves and robbers.  I’m certain it was a simple case of misunderstanding.  A thoughtless moment.’ 
‘There was a family,’ Luigi said, ignoring Jessica’s attempts to calm him.  He described all he could recall about each member of the family he believed had walked away with his belongings.
When he had finished speaking, the policeman said, Merci, monsieur e madame.  We have all we need.  We will be in touch with you at your address in…’ he paused, struggling with the pronunciation.
‘Tamarisk Bay,’ Jessica enunciated the words clearly.
Oui, Tamarisk Bay.  Allor, au revoir.
They were dismissed.  Jessica thanked the Italian guard again, hanging behind, while Luigi stormed ahead towards the station foyer.  The porter had been following them throughout, pushing the heavy metal trolley ahead of him.  Now he was puffing a little as he tried to keep up with Luigi’s long strides.
They had two hours to cross Paris, plenty of time, provided the taxi queue was not too long.  The city centre was a mass of cars, buses and pedestrians, but after the chaos of Rome it seemed almost calm. The wide tree-lined avenues breathed space and tranquility.  She watched as two elegantly dressed women sauntered past.  Both wore tailored dresses.  One had a cardigan over her shoulders, the wool so fine it was almost translucent.  She noticed their cropped hairstyles and ran her hand through her hair, imagining briefly what it would be like to have it cut short.  She shook the thought from her mind with a smile.
 As the taxi arrived at Paris Gare du Nord, she took a little cotton purse from her bag.  She had changed ten thousand lire into francs, which meant she could pay the taxi fare, leaving enough to buy a large bottle of water and two baguettes, each stuffed with Camembert.
‘I’m not hungry,’ Luigi said, as she handed one to him. 
‘Take it, you may be later.’  He reminded her of a truculent child.
The train journey to Calais wouldn’t take long and then they would be on the ferry.  Luigi had barely spoken since the incident with the briefcase.  She had pretended not to notice, immersing herself in the book she had started when she left Rome.  She had brought it with her when she left England nine years earlier and had read it so many times since then she almost knew it by heart.  ‘The Lord of the Ringswas a tale of adventure, with young Frodo as fearless as she had been setting off on her travels.  She smiled to herself thinking about all the terrifying ordeals that Frodo encountered on his journey across Middle Earth.

It's Easter 1970 in the seaside town of Tamarisk Bay, and for one family the first Easter of a new decade brings a shocking tragedy. Amateur sleuth and professional librarian, Janie Juke, is settling into motherhood and looking forward to spending time with her family. When her Aunt Jessica is due back from Rome after nine years travelling around Europe, she arrives back in town with a new Italian friend, Luigi, and the whole family soon get embroiled in a tangle of mystery and suspicion, with death and passion at the heart of the story.

As time runs out on Luigi as prime suspect for murder, Janie has to use all of her powers of deduction in the footsteps of her hero, Hercule Poirot, to uncover the facts. Why did Luigi come to Tamarisk Bay? What is the truth about his family?
As Luigi's story unfolds, tragedy seems to haunt the past, present and unless Janie acts fast, possibly what is yet to come.

AUDIOBOOK REVIEW of Rescued by Love by Melissa Foster

Series: Love in Bloom, Book 41, Love in Bloom: The Ryders, Book 4

Publisher's Summary

As the daughter of a world-renowned fashion designer, Addison Dahl enjoyed a privileged life attending the most sought-after parties, traveling around the world, and having anything she wanted. Until she broke free and went against her father's wishes, needing to prove to herself - and to him - that she could make it on her own. Now she's ready to take her adventures in a new direction and sets her sights on roughing it in the wilderness.

Jake Ryder followed in his father's footsteps as a top search and rescue professional. He spends his days saving those in need and his nights in the arms of willing women who offer nothing more than a few hours of sexual enjoyment. Just the way he likes it.

When Jake's sister-in-law calls and reports her best friend missing, it's up to Jake to find her and bring her home. But Addison isn't lost, and she sure as hell isn't going to be told what to do by an ornery mountain man with whom she'd spent one torrid weekend after her best friend's wedding. Jake has never left anyone behind - will Addison be his first failed rescue?

My Thoughts…

What an amazing narrator… BJ Harrison is wonderful.   He has a great cadence in his voice, a perfect tone, and wonderful feelings with his words.   He tells that story of Addison and Jake perfectly.   He takes Melissa Foster’s words and makes them come to life.   While listening to the story  I feel the characters come to life, their stories become realistic, and leave me wanting for so much more.  

Addison and Jake are one-night stand pros, no feelings involved, no worries about the next day. That is until they hook up together. After circling each other with innuendos for months it finally happens and it is more than they ever expect. The “rules” are broken and everything changes for them.

I am not big on one night stands but it seems to work for them. I enjoyed the circling of these two and it was impossible not to feel the sparks between the two of them well before they hooked up. The heat and attraction was amazing, maybe one of the hottest that Melissa Foster has ever written. 

Once again, the family and friendships are amazing. They are still my favorite parts of the Love in Bloom series. They are real and true. They support, love, and accept each other without question.

REVIEW of Dead If You Don't (Roy Grace #14) by Peter James

 Kindle Edition, 430 pages
Published May 17th 2018 by Macmillan

Roy Grace, creation of the CWA Diamond Dagger award winning author Peter James, faces his most complex case yet in Dead If You Don't.
Kipp Brown, successful businessman and compulsive gambler, is having the worst run of luck of his life. He’s beginning to lose, big style. However, taking his teenage son, Mungo, to their club’s Saturday afternoon football match should have given him a welcome respite, if only for a few hours. But it’s at the stadium where his nightmare begins.
Within minutes of arriving at the game, Kipp bumps into a client. He takes his eye off Mungo for a few moments, and in that time, the boy disappears. Then he gets the terrifying message that someone has his child, and to get him back alive, Kipp will have to pay.
Defying instruction not to contact the police, Kipp reluctantly does just that, and Detective Superintendent Roy Grace is brought in to investigate. At first it seems a straightforward case of kidnap. But rapidly Grace finds himself entering a dark, criminal underbelly of the city, where the rules are different and nothing is what it seems . . .

My Thoughts…

Oh how I am now in need of sleep.    I started the book, I read page and after page, chapter after chapter, and I just couldn’t stop.   The storyline pulled me in, the characters were amazing, and I couldn’t help myself but stay awake to keep reading.   

This is my first Roy Grace novel and I was worried that I would be missing out some of the story but I wasn’t missing a thing.   The story started with a new case and ended with the case being solved.   That sums it up but there is so much more.   There were multiple storylines that I wasn’t sure how they would tie together, there were characters that seemed to know each other but I wasn’t sure how, yet Peter James tied it all up nicely.   I had ideas on how it would all come together, I had some of it figured out but not quite all of it.   

Roy Grace had his hands full.    A possible bomb at the football game that he was at with his son, a child kidnap and then add it to the mobsters that he has to interview to find answers.    Yet, he kept it all together, worked methodically through the clues,  looked outside the box for answers, and figured out how it was all tied together to solve the crimes.    It was interesting to see how his brain worked and how he could possibly keep it together with little sleep and a boss that seemed to want to fire him at every turn.  

This was the first book I have read by Peter James and I am excited to see that he has many more available.    I am adding them to want-to-read list.

Barnabas Tew and the Case of the Missing Scarab

Barnabas Tew, a detective in Victorian London, is having a hard time making a name for himself, probably because most of his clients end up dead before he can solve their cases. His luck is about to change, though, for better or worse: Anubis, the Egyptian god of the dead, notices him and calls him to the Egyptian underworld. A terrible kidnapping has occurred; one that promises to put an end to the status quo and could perhaps even put an end to the entire world. It is up to Barnabas (along with his trusty assistant, Wilfred) to discover the culprit and set things to right. Can he turn his luck around and solve the most important case of his life?
