It’s hard to make eye contact in the poorly lit Riviera Hotel and Casino. Hard to make eye contact anywhere in Las Vegas. Too dim in the casinos, too bright in the sun. He seems anxious. Maybe because he’s out of his element. Or maybe because he’s not good with women. I give him a warm smile to loosen him up. “Well, unless you want me here...

Review: The Mourning Bells by Christine Trent

Review: The Mourning Bells by Christine Trent The Mourning Bells Author: Christine Trent Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: The Mourning Bells, the fourth installment in the Lady of Ashes Mysteries, is haunting and gripping.  Though Violet seemed a bit slow on the uptake on some of the clues in this novel, she continues to be a gripping, unique, sensitive, and unconventional sleuth. First off, I continue to love Violet.  She is a fairly down-to-earth woman, for the Victorian era.  I love that she fusses over her appearance (and the extra pounds she seems to be fighting).  These qualities help to humanize her and allow me to truly connect to her.  Despite her insecurities,...

Review: Rising Fire by Terri Brisbin

Review: Rising Fire by Terri Brisbin Rising Fire Author: Terri Brisbin Reviewer: Una Rating: B What I’m Talking About: Rising Fire is the debut novel in a new fantasy romance series, Stone Circles.  Although it was slow to start, it blossomed into a promising first installment, and I look forward to the next one. The beginning of this novel was like the start of a good chess match: slow to start as the players move their pieces into their battle positions, then once all the pieces are on the board, the excitement begins.  This is how Rising Fire started to me.  It needed some world-building, and pieces needed to evolve and be maneuvered into place. ...

When she’d first come to Lasura, it had been a shock to see how little clothing the people of the capital wore. Often their arms were bare to the shoulder. Sometimes the men wore nothing at all above the waist. Once, she’d seen Benim in the practice yard clad only in the red tunics all the guards wore and the leather boots that came...
