Book Review: The Line of Duty by Nichole Severn

 The Line of Duty

Title: The Line of Duty

Author: Nichole Severn

Stars: 2 1/2 


To start off readers I am warning you now you need to seriously suspend reality when it comes to this book and the human body.  I was laughing at one point thinking ok this is insane and no even based in anyway reality.  Lets face it there is only so much a human body can do before you are just dead and these two take it to the extreme. 

The story is what you expect from Harlequin and in a way disappointing because the author doesn't delivery on what readers might be expecting.  Unless bodies that are completely broken having romance is what you expect then ignore this post and enjoy the book.

I enjoy a quick fast pace romantic suspense but Nichole Severn takes it to a ridicule level of crazy that is hard to enjoy.

Thank you to Netgalley and Harlequin Intrigue publisher for the advance copy of Nichole Severn The Line of Duty.

Book Review: Hard Line (Cobra Elite #5) by Pamela Clare


Title: Hard Line (Cobra Elite #5) 

Author: Pamela Clare 

Stars: 3 1\2


I haven't been a big fan of the Cobra Elite series.  They are hit and miss when it comes to storytelling, unique characters not to mention the unbelievable moments in the series.

The males are so over the top short of beating their chest with how amazing they are in bed and the women who fall for I am Tarzan You Jane sex.

The plot and mastermind of the evil plot is boring one dimensional and lacks any type of convincation. The "Bad guys" is the only character I wish they had more of.  The author tries to use a red herring but it falls flat so many times.

If you like the Cobra series you will love this book but if this is your first book by Pamela Clare I suggest finding a different one from her other romantic suspense series. 


Dr. Samantha Park’s life is shaken when her best friend and research partner dies barely two months into their eight-month stretch at the South Pole. She hasn’t begun to face her loss when men from Cobra International Security arrive to recover sensitive military components from a crashed satellite—and ask her to come with them. As a scientist, she has always been suspicious of the military, and flying across Antarctica in austral winter is more like suicide than a rescue mission. But when she hears what’s at stake, she agrees to help and is forced to put her trust in Thor Isaksen, the tall, broad-shouldered Dane who leads the Cobra team.

Thor served as an elite soldier in Afghanistan and spent two years as part of a Danish spec-ops unit patrolling sea ice in the Arctic. He’s used to the cold and constant darkness. That’s why he’s been tapped to lead this mission. Under orders to do whatever he must to keep a dangerous weapon from falling into enemy hands, he’s prepared for every scenario—except one. Samantha, with her blue eyes and brilliant mind, takes him by surprise. She’s confident in her abilities as a scientist and yet so unsure of herself as a woman. Stuck at the station with his team until the weather clears, he can’t ignore the growing attraction he feels for her even if she’s the last thing he should be doing on the job.

Book Review:They Called Him a Gangster: My Secret Life with Meyer Lansky, the Financial Genius Behind the Mafia by Zali de Toledo

 The picture will not download so I guess just a book by the review and not the cover

Title: They Called Him a Gangster: My Secret Life with Meyer Lansky, the Financial Genius Behind the Mafia 

Author: Zali de Toledo

Stars: 3

Review: 3

I found the first part of this book, which detailed the author's early life, to be very informative. I only wish it could have been more detailed and contained more about her daily life in Istanbul and Israel. I have no doubt that she believes what has been written. However, every story has three sides; hers, his, and the truth. I feel that he had no reason to admit to any wrong doing or misdeeds. That his word was stronger than a written agreement I have no doubt. A written agreement can be produced in a court of law and will stand on its own. A verbal agreement is generally considered to be hear say and open to interpretation by all concerned parties. I would have liked to have seen both sides (hers and his) of the written letters which was not produced and unlikely to be produced. In summary I feel this was an attempt at revisionist history writing by the author without providing supporting details.

I would rate this book a maximum of three stars based on the portion concerning the author's early life.

I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review and the thoughts expressed are mine and based upon my reading of the book.


Only few people are well acquainted with Meyer Lansky, known as the ‘Mob’s Accountant’ who, in his youth, managed the investments of the New York mafia and was considered one of the leading figures of the city’s underworld.

Most of the stories known to the public are related to his past illegal activities. But as we are all aware, there is more than one side to every story.

The Other Side of the Story is a captivating biography that sheds a positive new light on the character of the "Gangster".

Zali de Toledo was a teenager who arrived in Israel into a new culture, wishing simply to make a fresh start in her beloved country.

While working as a waitress in the "Dan" hotel lobby, the two met, as fate would have it. Soon, an intimate relationship developed between them and their secret love blossomed and flourished.

In this riveting unique memoir, de Toledo reveals the powerful love affair she had with Lansky, the hundreds of letters he wrote to her over the years, the other personality and sensitivity of the man who was, in the eyes of many, a criminal, the little things between him and her, and the tough decisions they had to make.

Book Review: Take It Back by Kia Abdullah


Title: Take It Back 

Author: Kia Abdullah 

Stars: 4.5


Sometimes it is hard to write a book review and this is one of those times. It is not because the story line and subsequent narrative are not well done. No, both are excellent and well written. The problem arises in trying to describe how I felt without giving away the plot and ending. The main character is a strong individual, who has succeeded in her chosen profession, and has given it up to work in an victim assistance organization. When the physically handicapped victim comes forward, with a shocking allegation, it rocks the close knit minority community and our main character's family. The conclusion will leave you, the reader, rethinking your moral values but encouraging the main character to stand her moral ground and do what's right.

I have rated this book 4.5 d stars. I would purchase this book for myself and friends. I look forward to seeing more offerings by this talented author.

I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review. The above opinions are mine and mine alone.
Thank you Frank for your reviews!!


The Victim: Jodie Wolfe, a physically flawed 16-year-old girl accuses four boys in her class of something unthinkable.

The Defendants: Four handsome teenagers from hard-working immigrant families, all with corroborating stories.

The Savior: Zara Kaleel, a former lawyer, one of London's brightest legal minds, takes on this case. She believes her client, even though those closest to her do not.

Together, they enter the most explosive criminal trial of the year, where the only thing that matters is justice for Jodie. But this time justice comes at a devastating cost.

Lots of reading but no computer to write revews

 As many of you know my kids are online school for the next semester which means I do not get the use of even my table while school is in session.  After spending 8 hours bouncing between 4 kids from freshman to 2nd graded I am so worn out I just need a nap before dinner.

That being said I have been reading so much between insomnia, late night working with a kid who is playing catch up (12:30am. Tag teaming with his dad.) I have been able to get a lot of reading done in 10 mins here and 5 mins there and well from 1am until 6 am in the morning.

I have to admit so many amazing books have been flowing into my kindle and I hope I can write reviews to so them justice.

Also I need to figure out the one week of fall break activities to keep the demons...I mean my beloved children off electronics.  

Fun note my son is unable to understand how someone with such crazy amount of different learning disabilities visual dyslexia because of how the letters move, disappear or reappear.

Book Review: The Poison Factory: Operation Kamera by Lucy Kirk

Title: The Poison Factory: Operation Kamera

Author: Lucy Kirk

Stars: 5


Readers and fan of spy thriller are going to love this new book by Lucy Kirk. This author is one to keep an eye out for to enjoy other books she has written.

The authors background gives the story a real feel and believable for a spy type thriller. The story uses characters development and the history of the spy gerne to keep readers on a nail biting pace.  The characters are humanly flawed making them almost real as well as the story that revolves around the spying history between the warning nations the are in this wonderful book.

Book Review: The Darkest Evening (Vera Stanhope #9) by Ann Cleeves

The Darkest Evening (Vera Stanhope, #9)
Title: The Darkest Evening (Vera Stanhope #9)

Author: Ann Cleeves

Stars: 4 1\2 

As a big fan of British Police Mysteries I was not disappointed in this offering by the author. It builds from the onset untill the finish. You are able to visualize yourself in a small English village and watch, as an informed bystander, the drama unfold before you. You are shown the class snobbery and petty malicious gossip that swirls just beneath the seemingly calm waters. The big question is will the heroine (DI Vera Standhope), with the assistance of her team, be able to see justice done for the victim who was murdered so brutally on a cold and snowy night.

This character is also, aptly portrayed, in the excellent British television mystery series Vera.

I have rated this book 4.5 stars

l received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

On the first snowy night of winter, Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope sets off for her home in the hills. Though the road is familiar, she misses a turning and soon becomes lost and disorientated. A car has skidded off the narrow road in front of her, its door left open, and she stops to help. There is no driver to be seen, so Vera assumes that the owner has gone to find help. But a cry calls her back: a toddler is strapped in the back seat.

Vera takes the child and, driving on, she arrives at a place she knows well. Brockburn is a large, grand house in the wilds of Northumberland, now a little shabby and run down. It’s also where her father, Hector, grew up. Inside, there’s a party in full swing: music, Christmas lights and laughter. Outside, unbeknownst to the revelers, a woman lies dead in the snow.

As the blizzard traps the group deep in the freezing Northumberland countryside, Brockburn begins to give up its secrets, and as Vera digs deeper into her investigation, she also begins to uncover her family’s complicated past.

About The Author:
While she was cooking in the Bird Observatory on Fair Isle, she met her husband Tim, a visiting ornithologist. She was attracted less by the ornithology than the bottle of malt whisky she saw in his rucksack when she showed him his room. Soon after they married, Tim was appointed as warden of Hilbre, a tiny tidal island nature reserve in the Dee Estuary. They were the only residents, there was no mains electricity or water and access to the mainland was at low tide across the shore. If a person's not heavily into birds - and Ann isn't - there's not much to do on Hilbre and that was when she started writing. Her first series of crime novels features the elderly naturalist, George Palmer-Jones. A couple of these books are seriously dreadful.

In 1987 Tim, Ann and their two daughters moved to Northumberland and the north east provides the inspiration for many of her subsequent titles. The girls have both taken up with Geordie lads. In the autumn of 2006, Ann and Tim finally achieved their ambition of moving back to the North East.

For the National Year of Reading, Ann was made reader-in-residence for three library authorities. It came as a revelation that it was possible to get paid for talking to readers about books! She went on to set up reading groups in prisons as part of the Inside Books project, became Cheltenham Literature Festival's first reader-in-residence and still enjoys working with libraries.
Ann Cleeves on stage at the Duncan Lawrie Dagger awards ceremony

Ann's short film for Border TV, Catching Birds, won a Royal Television Society Award. She has twice been short listed for a CWA Dagger Award - once for her short story The Plater, and the following year for the Dagger in the Library award.

In 2006 Ann Cleeves was the first winner of the prestigious Duncan Lawrie Dagger Award of the Crime Writers' Association for Raven Black, the first volume of her Shetland Quartet. The Duncan Lawrie Dagger replaces the CWA's Gold Dagger award, and the winner receives £20,000, making it the world's largest award for crime fiction.

Ann's success was announced at the 2006 Dagger Awards ceremony at the Waldorf Hilton, in London's Aldwych, on Thursday 29 June 2006. She said: "I have never won anything before in my life, so it was a complete shock - but lovely of course.. The evening was relatively relaxing because I'd lost my voice and knew that even if the unexpected happened there was physically no way I could utter a word. So I wouldn't have to give a speech. My editor was deputed to do it!"

The judging panel consisted of Geoff Bradley (non-voting Chair), Lyn Brown MP (a committee member on the London Libraries service), Frances Gray (an academic who writes about and teaches courses on modern crime fiction), Heather O'Donoghue (academic, linguist, crime fiction reviewer for The Times Literary Supplement, and keen reader of all crime fiction) and Barry Forshaw (reviewer and editor of Crime Time magazine).

Ann's books have been translated into sixteen languages. She's a bestseller in Scandinavia and Germany. Her novels sell widely and to critical acclaim in the United States. Raven Black was shortlisted for the Martin Beck award for best translated crime novel in Sweden in 200

Book Review: Brimstone Bound (Firebrand #1) by Helen Harper

Brimstone Bound (Firebrand #1)
Title: Brimstone Bound (Firebrand #1)

Author: Helen Harper 

Stars: 4

I am not really into Supernatural series but this cover screamed read me!! Yes I do judge a book by their covers at first glance.
Sorry. But hey I am honest back to the review!
Helen Harper creates feisty, likable characters have a need to fight for what is right no matter what and a desire to be normal. Emma Bellamy was normal until something happened changing her forever!  
I will be honest this would be a 5 star review but the ends had me scratching my head because it didn't match with the actions though out the series even when Emma spells it out for readers it still doesn't make since.
I love the author decision that using a persons name as the power to control another person.  It was a interesting twist!
Thank you to netgalley and the author for the advance copy of Helen Harper Brimstone Bound

A werewolf killer. A paranormal murder. How many times can Emma Bellamy cheat death?

I’m one placement away from becoming a fully fledged London detective. It’s bad enough that my last assignment before I qualify is with Supernatural Squad. But that’s nothing compared to what happens next.

Brutally murdered by an unknown assailant, I wake up twelve hours later in the morgue – and I’m very much alive. I don’t know how or why it happened. I don’t know who killed me. All I know is that they might try again.

Werewolves are disappearing right, left and centre.

A mysterious vampire seems intent on following me everywhere I go.

And I have to solve my own vicious killing. Preferably before death comes for me again.

Book Review: The Cure by Glenn Cooper

The Cure 

Title: The Cure

Author: Glenn Cooper 

Star 1


The synopsis of The Cure had me excited to see what this new author might be able to come up with.

The story doesn't deliver what it promises to.  The plot goes from interesting to confuted within the first few chapters. The author uses more medical and pathogen verbiages that will have the more die hard Medical thriller fan scratching their head wondering if they need a PhD to read this book.  Glenn Cooper falls into using stereotypes as a way to describe characters, scenes as well as the plot that went from wahoo to what the crap am I reading?

The story ends in a cringe worthy story that can be thrown in the trash can when done.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the advance copy of Glenn Cooper The Cure.
