Review: Shivering Sands by Victoria Holt

Review: Shivering Sands by Victoria Holt Shivering Sands Author: Victoria Holt Reviewer: Una Rating: DNF What I’m Talking About: I was surprised to find that this novel, Shivering Sands is not a new book but a republished one.  That being said, this is not the type of historical novel I read.  I enjoy historical mysteries and suspense along with historical romances.  My problem with Shivering Sands is the narration.  I find the main character too focused on the trivial while not conveying items or snippets of importance.  I feel as is Caro is giving us a stream of consciousness account of a past experience.  In many ways I feel this novel to attempt to be...

Liam did a double take when he caught my open mouth and almost dropped...

Review: Breath of Iron by Kate Cross

Review: Breath of Iron by Kate Cross Breath of Iron Author: Kate Cross Reviewer: Una Rating: B+, 3.5 Stars What I’m Talking About: Breath of Iron is the third installment in the Novels of the Clockwork Agents series.  This steampunk series continues to fascinate me while still raising my blood pressure with sizzling romance.  Since meeting Evie in the first novel, Heart of Brass, I have been eager to see her find her happily ever after.  Especially after noting the tension between her and Mac in the previous novel, Touch of Steel, I couldn’t wait to read this one.  Although there are few things that detracted, I did enjoy reading Breath of Iron. Evie is a doctor...
