Book Review Gold Street by Kathy T Kale

Gold Street
Title: Gold Street

Author: Kathy T. Kale

Stars: 4 1\2

Review:
An excellent conspiracy mystery that very much reminded me of the last election. The major difference being that Bernie was not a third-party candidate and was not murdered. It involved all of the major alphabets of the federal government as well as banks, wall street, and three foreign governments. Overall it was a great story that was well told.

I have rated this book 4.5 stars.

I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format.

Synopsis:
Incensed by an economic policy that allows banks to create money out of nothing and collect undeserved interest on it, twenty-four year old Tyler Madison is on a mission to expose the clandestine operations of the U.S. Central Bank. After he is injured in a suspicious road accident, his reclusive mother steps out and realizes his life is in danger, and the good guys and bad guys are not who they appear to be. When Tyler teams up with an aspiring presidential candidate, dark forces gather to shut them up.

Book Review: Find Me (Corrupted Hearts Book 3) by Tiffany Snow

Find Me (Corrupted Hearts Book 3)
Title: Find Me (Corrupted Hearts Book 3)

Author: Tiffany Snow

Stars: 4 out of 5

Review:
Tiffany Snow is well known for her romance love triangles as well as the hot sexy scenes she writes. 
I have read all of this authors books and while some are written with sex scenes first and than she fills in the details the Corrupted Heart series is written with the story in mind and everything else fills in as the story moves forward. 

China is a characters readers will fall in love with with her nerdy and very comfortable in her quite life. I could do without the love triangle because it will always leave one set of readers upset when the character doesn't choose the one they assume the female should be with. As well as it makes the female characters less strong and almost selfish because she can't seem to make a decision and stick to it.

China slowly discovers who she is and how she is able to handle her comfortable life tuned upside down. readers will watch she has struggle trying to understand the knew her and keeping true to who she is inside. 

Find me has a killer that is hell bend on retribution which will keep readers reading. Wondering how China and the boyfriends will be able to stop the killer as well as keep everyone safe and alive.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Montlake as well as Tiffany Snow for the advance copy.

Synopsis:
As the head of the government’s secret Vigilance spy program, computer guru China Mack already has her hands full when her billionaire boyfriend, Jackson Cooper, asks for one of them in marriage.
Thrown for a loop by the sudden proposal, China’s usually well-ordered life takes another hit when someone tries to assassinate the president. Even that comes with a shocking twist: the primary suspect is none other than her ex-partner, Clark Slattery. With nowhere else to turn, the sexy loner needs China’s help and expertise. Clark has linked the assassination attempt to a failed secret operation undertaken six years ago—and a deadly cover-up that’s putting the leader of the free world in the crosshairs. But the president isn’t the only one in harm’s way.
Now, China is going to have to dig deep for information that’s beyond even her clearance. And what she discovers may have far-reaching consequences for her life and everyone else in it.

About The Author:
Tiffany Snow
I love to stick with characters over a series of books when I read, which is the same way I write. The Kathleen Turner Series, Risky Business Series, Tangled Ivy Trilogy, and now the Corrupted Hearts Series all feature continuing characters. My latest novel, FOLLOW ME, is book one in the Corrupted Hearts Series with China Mack--the most unlikely of heroines. BREAK ME, book two, will be out in March, 2017.


As for me, I've been reading romance novels since I was way too young to read such things, have an unhealthy obsession for all things Doctor Who, prefer Pepsi to Coke and Absolut to both, think men who drink girly cocktails are wusses, have learned to never stop believing in my beloved St. Louis Cardinals, and can recite the entire scripts of When Harry Met Sally and Apollo 13. George Washington is cool, Bon Jovi still rocks the house, and Bruce Willis is the ultimate alpha-male hero. Most of all, romance never, ever gets old.

Book Review For Whom The Bread Rolls (A Pancake House Mystery) by Sarah Fox

For Whom the Bread Rolls (A Pancake House Mystery #2)
Title: For Whom The Bread Rolls (A Pancake House Mystery) 

Author: Sarah Fox

Stars: 4 out of 5

Review:
An excellent cozy mystery with a minimum of violence. The main character, who came into her business and home, by way of an inheritance has grit and determination. She is not easily swayed and follows thru on her instincts to a successful conclusion. I believe there is also a budding romance in the works. It will be interesting to follow this series to see how it progresses. I liked the story and was a little surprised as to who the murderer turned out to be in the end.

I have given this book a four star rating.

I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.


Synopsis:
Tourist season’s in full swing in the small seaside town of Wildwood Cove, and Marley McKinney couldn’t be happier. Since taking over the Flip Side restaurant, she’s made a few close friends, adopted a cat named Flapjack, and started dating her childhood crush. The only cloud on the horizon is local nuisance Ida Winkler, who blames Marley for landing her nephew in prison. Trying to get a rise out of Marley, Ida’s been making crank calls and even vandalizing the pancake house.

The police can’t do much about the pranks, so Marley sets out to bury the hatchet once and for all. But someone’s beat her to it—in the most shocking way possible. After stumbling across Ida’s dead body, Marley’s suddenly the number-one suspect in her murder. Clearing her good name is going to be a tall order, but Marley’s not about to let Ida keep ruining her life—especially from beyond the grave.

The Windsor Protocol
Title:  The Windsor Protocol

Author: Peter Macalan

Stars: 4 out of 5

Review
The author has taken a sliver of history, a grain of truth, and a vivid imagination and built an impressive action story.

Book Review Wicked Deeds (Krewe of Hunters #23) by Heather Graham

Wicked Deeds (Krewe of Hunters, #23)
Title: Wicked Deeds (Krewe of Hunters #23) 

Author: Heather Graham

Stars: 3 1/2 out of 5

Review:
I struggled though this book and yest I finished it there was something lacking.  I wasn't able to connect to the endless characters as well as the ghost story.  I love reading Edgar Allan Poe but something didn't quite connect.
Heather Graham uses a lot of Poe type of writing creating misdirection that the detectives follow.  The story has history that will consume readers as the author gives readers another idea of what might have happened to Poe.
The story does pose most paranormal with a mystery but I found the it just lacking something.  The story and chacaters didn't connect and many times the story would slow down only to rush though other parts that could have used a little more time and understanding.
This is considered a Stand Alone but honestly I was lost several times between the different characters to why the characters reacted certain ways.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Mira Booiks

Synopsis:
Nevermore... 

Eager to start their life together, historian Vickie Preston and Special Agent Griffin Pryce take a detour en route to their new home in Virginia and stop for a visit in Baltimore. But their romantic weekend is interrupted when a popular author is found dead in the basement of an Edgar Allan Poe-themed restaurant. Because of the mysterious circumstances surrounding the corpse, the FBI's Krewe of Hunters paranormal team is invited to investigate. As more bizarre deaths occur, Vickie and Griffin are drawn into a case that has disturbing echoes of Poe's great works, bringing the horrors of his fiction to life.

The restaurant is headquarters to scholars and fans, and any of them could be a merciless killer. Except there's also something reaching out from beyond the grave. The late, great Edgar Allan Poe himself is appearing to Vickie in dreams and visions with cryptic information about the murders. Unless they can uncover whose twisted mind is orchestrating the dramatic re-creations, Vickie and Griffin's future as a couple might never begin.

Book Review: A Particular Darkness (Katrina Williams #2) By Robert E. Dunn

A Particular Darkness (Katrina Williams #2)
Title: A Particular Darkness (Katrina Williams #2)

Author: Robert E. Dunn

Stars: 4 out of 5

Review:
This is not a stand Alone Novel. You will need to read the first one in the series to really understand the reasons for why the characters act and communicate the way they do.
Robert Dunn creates a world where people are flawed as normal humans. They are hurtful, angry and want to get back at the people who hurt them the most.
 Katrina is a very flawed characters who works hard to put the past behind her without working though the issues. answers she seeks.  The author paints Katrina PTSD and her use of  alcohol to deal with her demons. The PTSD is very vivid and readers will find themselves growing to care of Katrina and her future. 
The story starts off with a dead body which will hook readers though the twist and turns the story takes them though.

DREDGING UP THE TRUTH

Still recovering from tragedy and grieving a devastating loss, Iraq war veteran and sheriff's detective Katrina Williams copes the only way she knows how—by immersing herself in work. A body's just been pulled from the lake with a fish haul, but what seems like a straightforward murder case over the poaching of paddlefish for domestic caviar quickly becomes murkier than the depths of the lake.

Soon a second body is found—an illegal Peruvian refugee woman linked to a charismatic tent revival preacher. But as Katrina tries to investigate the enigmatic evangelist, she is blocked by antagonistic FBI agents and Army CID personnel. When more young female refugees disappear, she must partner with deputy Billy Blevins, who stirs mixed feelings in her, to connect the lake murder to the refugees. Katrina is no stranger to darkness, but cold-blooded conspirators plan to make sure she'll never again see the light of day .

About The Author: 
Robert E. Dunn
I wasn't born in a log cabin but the station wagon did have wood on the side. It was broken down on the approach road into Ft. Rucker, Alabama in the kind of rain that would have made a Biblical author jealous. You never saw a tornado in the Old Testament did you? As omens of a coming life go, mine was full of portent if not exactly glad tidings.

From there things got interesting. Life on a series of Army bases encouraged my retreat into a fantasy world. Life in a series of public school environments provided ample nourishment to my developing love of violence. Often heard in my home was the singular phrase, "I blame the schools." We all blamed the schools.

Both my fantasy and my academic worlds left marks and the amalgam proved useful the three times in my life I had guns pointed in my face. Despite those loving encounters the only real scars left on my body were inflicted by a six foot, seven inch tall drag queen. She didn't like the way I was admiring the play of three a.m. Waffle House fluorescent light over the high spandex sheen of her stockings.

After a series of low paying jobs that took me places no one dreams of going. I learned one thing. Nothing vomits quite so brutally as jail food. That's not the one thing I learned; it's an important thing to know, though. The one thing I learned is a secret. My secret. A terrible and dark thing I nurture in my nightmares. You learn your own lessons.

Eventually I began writing stories. Mostly I was just spilling out the, basically, true narratives of the creatures that lounge about my brain, laughing and whispering sweet, sweet things to say to women. Women see through me but enjoy the monsters in my head. They say, sometimes, that the things I say and write are lies or, "damn, filthy lies, slander of the worst kind, and the demented, perverted, wishful stories of a wasted mind." To which I always answer, I tell only the truth. I just tell a livelier truth than most people.

Book Review Contracted Defense (Safe Guard #3) Piper J. Drake


Contracted Defense (Safeguard #3)
Title: Contracted Defense (Safe Guard #3)

Author: Piper J. Drake

Stars: 4 out of 5

Review:
With most Romantic Suspense series there is a fine line authors have to walk on. One chapter can turn the book into a romance turning some readers off. On the flip side it can turn into more action and suspense leaving the romance readers turned off.  Piper Drake tries hard to give the best of both worlds.

Contracted Defense can be considered a stand alone novel but readers will enjoy the story as well as characters more if they reader the first two books in the Safe Guard series.

The story revolves around Adam Hicks Newbie to Safe Guard and Victoria Ash.  The romance dominates this story and some readers might find themselves skipping the romance for more of the action.  

Piper does a wonderful job of trying to balance the two stories but this one falls into the romance with a few twist and turns that will keep suspense readers reading.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Carina Press for the advance copy 

Synopsis:
Time is running out and the enemy is at the gate.

Adam Hicks may be the rookie at Safeguard, but he’s no novice in the field. Retired from active duty after multiple tours and back fresh from a brief rest in New Zealand, he’s itching to return to action. But the challenge he hoped for arrives in an unexpected form: his sexy yet stern new partner.

The last thing Victoria Ash wants is to work with the new guy—especially one as gorgeous as Adam. His relaxed attitude about their first “easy” assignment together—setting up a private home defense network for a reclusive client—doesn’t impress her. Easy usually means trouble. She’s proved right when Adam discovers that the multiple incursions on the physical and cyber security systems aren’t just glitches. They’re under attack…and there’s a traitor in their midst.

As tension mounts, so does the attraction between Victoria and Adam. They must protect their client and the research he’s desperately trying to keep secret. Working together, they have to find the mole before their defense measures, in the fortress and online, are compromised and the deadly secrets they’ve sworn to protect are revealed.

Book Review: Marrying The Marquess By G.L. Snodgrass

Marrying The Marquess (Love's Pride Book 4)
Title: Marrying The Marquess

Author: G.L. Snodgrass

Stars: 4 out of 5 

Review:
I always enjoy a book that is able to engage my mind and bring forth mental images of places I have lived or visited. The author excels at her craft and always produces a finished product that leaves me satisfied and feeling I have been mentally transported to another time and place. A well told romance that will leave you feeling good.

I have rated this book 4 stars and recommend it to anyone who is interested in a good romance with flair.

I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format. 
 Thank you Frank


Synopsis: 
Some might consider him a bit of a beast. Others knew him to be particular and demanding. The Marquess of Penrith didn’t really care. After returning from war. All he wanted was peace and quiet. But, duty and honor demanded that he marry the young Miss Davis. An obligation that could not be denied. 

Luckily, marriage did not equate to love. 

Miss Catherine Davis dreaded the thought of marrying such a man. But what choice did she have. Penniless, without family. Her options were limited. The fact that he was extremely handsome, powerful, and rich, only made things worse. 
Two people from different worlds, forced together, both searching for happiness. Perhaps they can only find it by coming together.

Book Review: Her Dark Half (X-Ops #7) by Paige Tyler

Her Dark Half (X-Ops, #7)
Title: Her Dark Half (X-Ops #7)

Author:   Paige Tyler

Stars: 4 out of 5

Review:
Having read and enjoyed book 5 I thought I would read another book in the Paige Tyler X-Ops Series.
Paige Tyler is able to keep readers up to date on all the different characters from each of her first 6 book.
Each of Paige Tyler's stories are different but are all in the same world working with the same ops group. The books are about to be read as a stand alone or as a series.
Her Darker Half reader like a spy thriller with paranormal characters which makes the story exciting to read from first to last page.
Readers will find a well thought out plot mixed with actions, suspense and sexual chemistry between Trevor and Alina.
For those who have been reading the series will finally have the answers they have been looking for from book 1 Her Perfect Mate.
If Paige Tyler was to end the series this book would be the perfect topping to the series.  However for those who can never get enough of Paige Typers X-Ops series do not fear there is more to come.

Book Review On the Chase (Rocky Mountain K9 Unit #2) by Katie Ruggle

On the Chase (Rocky Mountain K9 Unit, #2)
Title: On the Chase (Rocky Mountain K9 Unit #2)

Author: Katie Ruggle

Stars: 5 out of 5 

Review:
Charming, Cute, Fun, Action, Feisty story romance readers and mystery readers will love.

One the Chase is a cute fast pace romance with a great chemistry between the two leads that will have readers laugh.

Katie Ruggle was able to create a wonderful sexual chemistry between two characters using witty banter that seemed natural to the characters. At first Kaylee seems a little worldly but the author makes her grow up fast but also keeping true to the character.  I romance and I love you are rushed but the authors give readers a chance enjoy the humor that comes with the romance. 
The story moves along at a great pace keeping readers engaged but as a reader I could have used one less someone almost dies again.  It was almost as if the author had them in danger so she could write certain scenes where the two leaders banter back and forth driving up their chemistry,
The ending was perfect because it shows you that even in world wind romance you still need time to get to know each other.

The kids from the first story are in the book and readers will enjoy the fun they bring with the story.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Sourcebooks Casablanca for the advance copy.
I can't wait to see who will be arriving on the doorstep next?

Synopsis:

Until then, the highlight of his day is teasing the beautiful but mysterious new kennel employee. Their simmering attraction fuels a passionate kiss—interrupted by a sniper’s bullet. With targets on both of their backs, Grace and Hugh will do whatever it takes to stay alive…not realizing the most dangerous threat of all is hiding right in front of their noses.

Book Review Rapunzel and the Lost Lagoon (Tangled #1) By Leila Howland

Rapunzel and the Lost Lagoon (Tangled #1)
Title: Rapunzel and the Lost Lagoon (Tangled #1)

Author: Leila Howland

Stars: 5 out of 5 (Can we give more? Ask My Daughter who reviewed the book)

Review:
My daughter whom is 8 years old read this book and will be writing the review for the book.
Oh my gosh the story is right after the movie. I mean seriously like right after the movie ends. I love Rapunzel she is like me and has a hard time trying to figure out where she fits in the world. Than there is Cass I think that's her name and she is so fun and like me too because she doesn't like all the girlie stuff that sister likes. She wants to be a guard and that is awesome.
I loved the friendship in the book and how you can be anything you want to be even if your a girl. I can't wait to read the next book.
Thank you to who ever gave my mom this book it was the best and I can't wait to read more.
Likes: Girls can be any one they want to be if they work hard. Girls can be princesses and be strong and fight for what is right.
Dislikes: NOTHING!
Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for a Advance Copy.
 


Synopsis:
Rapunzel is not your typical princess. For one thing, she has returned to her kingdom after eighteen years spent trapped in a tower and she's still getting to know her parents. For another, she has to get used to royal customs, like the proper ways to sit and curtsy, when she'd really rather climb a tree and paint. Plus, she hates wearing shoes.

Cassandra is not your typical lady-in-waiting. As the daughter of the captain of the guard, she has grown up fascinated by security and weaponry. It has been her life's goal to become a soldier in the guard, and princess-sitting doesn't really fit into her plan-especially when that princess's aggravating boyfriend is always hanging around.

But when Rapunzel and Cassandra stumble upon a secret lagoon said to hold the key to the kingdom's greatest power, it will be up to them to solve the mystery before someone more sinister does.

Follow this tale of adventure and intrigue, love and destiny, and, most important, friendship.

Book Review A List To Die For by Graham J Burlem

A List To Die For: A British Detective Mystery

Title: A List To Die For

Author: Graham J Burlem

Stars: 4.5 out of 5

Review:
A gritty British crime novel that has an ex Metropolitan Police Detective Constable, now a private enquiry agent, taking on a case for a Casino owner. The story unfolds nicely and is easy to follow. Some of the seamier side of the London social scene is put on display for you to ponder about. The ending will leave you wondering but that is up to you, the reader, to discover. 

I have rated this book 4.5 stars and recommend it if you enjoy crime stories as only the British can do them.

I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.


Synopsis: 
Jack Kreeger has one simple question, who kidnapped his son? 
Jack would pay anything to get Tony free. And he can. Jack's rich. Very rich. He 
owns one of the last independent gambling casinos in the West End of London with a 
car park full of Rollers every night. Classy, but maybe not so clean. It's a world of 
glamorous corruption where sex is expensive and life is cheap. And the players think 
the rules simply don't apply. 

Jack can pay, but whoever has Tony isn't after money. They want a certain notebook 
created by Jack's deceased lifelong friend and business partner Ronnie Miller that 
details the drug dealing at the casino. The names of A-listers , politicians, members of 
the bench who get their scores and whores via a hoodlum who pimped his girls from 
the place. 

The notebook also details Ronnie's connection with a drug dealing blackmailer with a 
female enforcer who doesn't like men. If she wants information she hangs them naked 
upside by their ankles and hits them where it hurts with electric shocks. 

And where is the notebook they so desperately want that they'd kidnap for. And even 
kill? 

And who is they? The pimp? The blackmailer? 

Jack wants answers and Tony back. So he calls on Eddie Sutton. An ex-cop. Likeable, 
cynical, who knows his way around the London underworld. Who isn't above buying 
information or breaking the law or someone's legs for it. Or getting laid when the 
opportunity presents itself. Eddie's a quick study. But is he quick enough to find the 
notebook and save Tony Kreeger's life?
