Review: By Hook or By Crook by Eleri Stone + bonus review

Review: By Hook or By Crook by Eleri Stone + bonus review By Hook or By Crook Author: Eleri Stone Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Note: The author and Carina Press put out a free prequel novella, The Adventures of Cassius Flynn and Molly McGuire, which I recommend reading prior to By Hook or By Crook, as it shares quite a bit of the couple’s mutual history. I’ve included my review of the novella at the end of this post. Cassius Flynn and Molly McGuire have always made good partners. So out of a sense of debt and because she still cares for him, Molly agrees to help Flynn on a spy mission for the Rangers, even...

Review: Catching a Man by Elizabeth Corrigan

Review: Catching a Man by Elizabeth Corrigan Catching A Man Author: Elizabeth Corrigan Reviewer: Una Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Catching A Man is the new alternate world detective drama by Elizabeth Corrigan.  After reading two of her previous works, I was intrigued by the premise of this one.  Ms. Corrigan did not disappoint in her new Valeriel Investigations series. This world is familiar, yet different.  It feels like the roaring 20’s mixed with the 50’s in an alternate British empire like setting.  I really enjoyed the politics that play along with the societal norms in this different world.  What makes it more poignant is the juxtaposition of our heroine, Kadin.  She is a more...

Review: The Clockwork Wolf by Lynn Viehl

Review: The Clockwork Wolf by Lynn Viehl The Clockwork Wolf Author: Lynn Viehl Reviewer: Jen Twimom Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Welcome to the utterly fascinating and fantastic world of Disenchanted & Co. Ms. Viehl’s series is set in an alternate timeline world where the colonies did not win the Revolutionary War and are now the Provincial Union of Victoria. Times are hard, and society supports a wealthy class, a working class, and a group of undesirables. Native Americans have some rights, but are still looked down upon as native heathens. Women – especially ones like Kit who are trying to make it on their own – are on the lowest rung of society. The Clockwork...

Review: His Lordship Possessed by Lynn Viehl

Review: His Lordship Possessed by Lynn Viehl Disenchanted & Co., Part 2: His Lordship Possessed Author: Lynn Viehl Reviewer: Twimom Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: Note: this review will contain spoilers from the first title, Her Ladyship’s Curse, which is actually the first part of the two part story making up the novel Disenchanted & Co. If you plan to read the novel in its entirety when it comes out in January – or – if you haven’t read Ladyship, please be warned! His Lordship Possessed truly is the second half of a larger story, and I do not recommend reading it as a stand alone story. His Lordship Possessed picks up immediately...

Review: Her Ladyship’s Curse by Lynn Viehl

Review: Her Ladyship’s Curse by Lynn Viehl Disenchanted & Co., Part 1: Her Ladyship’s Curse Author: Lynn Viehl Reviewer: Twimom Rating: Stand alone: B, 3 Stars Part of larger book: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: Her Ladyship’s Curse is actually the first part (of two) of the upcoming title, Disenchanted & Co., the first novel in the Disenchanted & Co. series by Lynn Viehl. Fortunately, I was able to read both parts back-to-back, and knowing that they were two halves of a whole makes this review difficult to write. Therefore, I am giving this story two ratings: one as a stand alone story and the other as the first half of a bigger book....
