Knight's Fall Review

4 out of 5 stars

Xavier Knight lost his wings and was kicked out of heaven after he fell in love with a human and let one of his charges die. Now he lives with his cat shape shifter best friend and works as a private investigator. He doesn't expect the evil he will unravel with his latest case.
Knight's Fall is the first book I read by Angela Henry. I will definitely be reading more. It was intriguing and kept me guessing up until the very end. I love imperfect heros and Xavier Knight definitely fit the bill.
I would recommend Knight's fall for fans of supernatural suspense and urban fantasy. It is full of intrigue and action and a truly fascinating world.

Body of Lies Review

3 out of 5 stars

Political intrigue in the Bayou. Eve is offered a job reconstructing a skull found in the Bayou. She intends to refuse the job, but problems at home lead her to use the job as an escape. Away from Joe and Jane Eve soon finds herself in danger - at the center of two opposing forces both of which mean her harm.
As the other books in the Eve Duncan series Body of Lies is fast-paced and intriguing with lots of twists and turns. It is a little unrealistic, but then I don't read her books looking for realism. In all Body of Lies is another solid instillation in a great series.

Live to Tell Review

5 of 5 stars

Lisa Gardner is one of those authors that I forget how good she is - fast paced, twisting, emotional, and satisfying, Live to Tell is a great book. There are three story lines that twist together and although as a reader I knew the lines were going to merge I could not have guessed how it would happen. Live to Tell is at turns disturbing and dark and then hopeful and loving. I would definitely recommend this book.

How to be a Normal Person Review

5 out of 5 stars
So this was one of those books I stumbled onto. I had never heard of the author before, but I thought I would give it a try so I downloaded the sample. Of course I ended up buying the book and reading the whole thing in a day. It was beautiful. It made me laugh. It made me cry. The main characters are wonderful and so developed. The supporting characters and interesting and add so much to the story. At it's core How to Be A Normal Person is about accepting yourself and accepting the love you receive and you have to give. We are all unique and sometimes that seems like a bad thing, but loving yourself and loving someone else is seeing your uniqueness as a good thing. When someone loves you because of your quirks not in spite of your quirks that is a really amazing thing.

Fearless Fourteen Review

5 out of 5 stars

I like the Stephanie Plum novels they are sort of like cotton candy. Fun and sweet, but too much will make you sick. The last few Plum novels were just eh. A little too much cotton candy perhaps, but Fearless Fourteen was perfect. Morelli and Stephanie were perfect. The supporting characters were funny, but not overwhelming. The mystery was cute but had enough heart to keep it from being annoying. It gives me hope for the rest of series!
