She slammed into the Beaver Tavern’s door shoulder first, amber light spilling on her and the scent of tobacco threading through the air as she entered. Wooden planks creaked under her boots from her tread as she quick-stepped to the oaken bar on the opposite side. Three things lit her match without fail—abusive a**holes, idiots who didn’t use their turn signals, and unannounced shifters moving in on...

Review: Pressure Head by JL Merrow

Review: Pressure Head by JL Merrow Pressure Head Author: JL Merrow Reviewer: B. Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: I was immediately curious about Pressure Head based on the premise alone: a plumber who has an affinity for water, uses his “gift” that causes him to be drawn to “hidden things” to find clues—and dead people. Tom won me over quickly, his funny (and often snarky) observations combining with his inability to keep himself out of trouble to make him a generally lovable character. As the sole narrator, his perspective did a lot to counter the more significant issues that I had with the other MC, Phil, and trusting Tom with his own choices made...

Review: Paper Stars by Devon Monk

Review: Paper Stars by Devon Monk Paper Stars Author: Devon Monk Reviewer: Gikany and Una Rating: A- What We’re Talking About: We absolutely love the world of the Ordinary Magic series.  Gods, monsters, and legends all exist and vacation in Ordinary, Oregon. In this novella, we catch up with Delaney and her boyfriend Ryder. Although we have not been fans of Ryder, in this story he truly redeems himself. In the first three books in the series, we thought that Ryder lost the right to call Delaney his. She repeatedly forgave him and gave him chance after chance.  He wouldn’t heed her advice and he didn’t appreciate her.  By the end of the third book,...

Sunday Snippet: Snowspelled by Stephanie Burgis  About the Book Snowspelled    Author:  Stephanie Burgis Publisher:   Five Fathoms Press Released:  September 4, 2017 Series:   Harwood Spellbook #1 Genre:  Fantasy Author contact links:   Website Purchase links:  Amazon REVIEW Snippet: They were all gone a moment later, along with the servants who’d led their way.  Even their hushed voices disappeared behind the closed door of the parlor in the distance, shutting out any possible eavesdroppers.  Letting out my held breath, I sagged against the wall and closed my eyes. I needed a moment to recover before I walked on and joined them.  Just one moment… one more moment… “Hmm,” said an all-too-familiar voice close to my ear, with wicked...

Review: The Christmas Cowboy Hero by Donna Grant

Review: The Christmas Cowboy Hero by Donna Grant The Christmas Cowboy Hero Author: Donna Grant Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Yes, please! A new series from Donna Grant! Combining military with cowboys? Yummy! The Heart of Texas series is going to be my new military/cowboy go-to. In The Christmas Cowboy Hero, Clayton is our tortured hero. You’d think that having been a Navy SEAL would harden him against all the touchy-feely stuff. Totally not so, and poor Clayton has more to deal with than the average SEAL. I really liked Clayton’s characterization because it seemed like there were real issues he was taking care of and he buried some things from his past super...

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Life is But a Dream by Lee Strauss

Listen Up! #Audiobook Review: Life is But a Dream by Lee Strauss Welcome to my weekly feature that focuses on audiobooks.

The novel begins four months after the previous book.  Sage is still not coping well to the death...
