Death in the Abstract: A Katherine Sullivan Mystery by Emily Barnes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Crooked Lane Books and netgalley for this ARC.

Emily Barnes makes her characters so human and real that you are drawn into the mystery and into their world. This series will leave a big impression on you until the next one which I’m anxiously hoping will be soon.

Review: A Twisted Vengeance: A Kate Clifford Novel

A Twisted Vengeance: A Kate Clifford Novel
A Twisted Vengeance: A Kate Clifford Novel by Candace Robb
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Pegasus Books and netgalley for this ARC.

Kate is a dynamit women, a feminist before the word, and so fun and exciting to read about. I love this world that Candace Robb has created. The mystery, intrigue, and archetype that her characters bring to mind make this a series a hit.

A glimpse of Shakespeare’s world thru those that knew him best and before his fame. Charlene Ball brings Emilia to life and our attention. This novel will hopefully inspire other female poets and young girls also.

Review: Though This be Madness

Though This be Madness
Though This be Madness by Penny Richards
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Kensington Books and netgalley for this ARC.

Seeing New Orleans thru Lilly’s eyes is like reading about it for the first time. Penny Richards has a gift with words that makes this series fresh, forceful, and never quaint. We feel the burn of Lilly’s ambition for justice and her maturity in this novel through the partnership thrust upon her.

The Competition: Da Vinci's Disciples - Book Two
The Competition: Da Vinci’s Disciples – Book Two by Donna Russo Morin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Diversion Books and netgalley for this ARC

This is one of my favorite series set in the Renaissance! Strong unapologetic women artists who don’t back down from a challenge, and expand of knowledge and minds with each novel. Will make you want to do more, shout from the rooftops, and research the period for more inspiration.

Sidney Chambers and the Persistence of Love by James Runcie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Bloomsbury USA and netgalley for this ARC.

Sidney Chambers needs no introduction- he’s a institution all on his own. You’ll be crying at the end of this one which makes it all the more powerful to me. I’m looking forward to reading the next in this series with open arms.

Review: Beyond the Wild River: A Novel

Beyond the Wild River: A Novel
Beyond the Wild River: A Novel by Sarah Maine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Thanks Atria Books and netgalley for this ARC.

This is a epic journey and awakening for all involved. We get a tour from Chicago to the wilds of Canada- from the perspective of Evelyn and James. The elements that are held beyond of view make the tension and suspense all the more exciting. When the showdown comes, you’ll be blown away.
