Review: Amnesia - Ellie Grace

Review: Amnesia - Ellie Grace - June 2024 I had been excited to read this book as another of my top themes/tropes in books is the amnesia storyline and when I saw that Kelly Elliott whom I had enjoyed some of her other books had started up a romantic suspense line under the pen name Ellie Grace, I knew I wanted to read it and requested it from Give Me Books Promotions. As I expected, this book was a great read as we first meet Mallory who sadly is your perfect victim as she has no family and no friends, so no one to know she is missing as such as she had also been staying and was about to leave the motel. On her last night at the motel, she is kidnapped from the room and taken to a basement where she finds in the dirt a locket and one night, manages to escape. She runs for her life and eventually after a couple of days is found on Liam's ranch by Liam when is out on a horse ride. Liam brings her back to the ranch and starts to care for her, we also learn that Liam's fiancee E

Review: The Midnight Feast - Lucy Foley

Review : The Midnight Feast - Lucy Foley - June 2024 When it comes to Lucy Foley's books, in the past I have loved the premise of her stories as it happens to be one of my favorite tropes, but I have felt that they have fallen flat for me and ended up being DNFs. So when it came to The Midnight Feast, again it was my favorite trope but I went into it with not high expectations and I found myself, though it was a bit on the slower pace side, I did enjoy the story. The book starts with a brand new "Healthy" elites retreat being built in this small town with a wilderness feel to it after the owner Frankie has inherited the land from her grandfather.  It is opening weekend and all goes off with a bang, that is until tragedy strikes the next day aka "The Day After Solstice". There is fire and death and a whole lot of secrets being forced out into the open as a few of the guests had their agendas for coming to the retreat and it all starts back to "fifteen years

Review: The Do-Over - Lynn Painter

Review: The Do-Over - Lynn Painter - November 2022 To clear my print bookshelf, I have been trying the last year to read more paperbacks as I had about a 2-year stint where I only read ebooks. This one was given to me as a bookstagram gift and it is the third book by Lynn Painter, I have read.  I have read one of her adult books and two YA reads now and I have to admit, I think I am more suited to Lynn's YA reads than her adult ones. There is just something about the YA ones that gives me happy and good vibes and a bit of reminiscing feel-good moments. One of my favorite themes in books is Groundhog Day, the re-living of a day over and over again until one day you get it right and finally can move on with your future. The Do-Over by Lynn Painter is Groundhog Day but set on Valentine's Day. We meet our female character Emilie, who has on paper the perfect boyfriend but she is about to discover that IRL he might not be the perfect guy for her as her Valentine's Day ends up o

Review : Pearl - Sherri L Smith and Christine Norrie

Review: Pearl - Sherri L Smith and Christine Norrie - August 2024 In "Pearl," Sherri L. Smith and Christine Norrie weave a poignant tale set against the backdrop of World War II, focusing on Amy, a young Japanese-American girl caught between two nations at war. This graphic novel, gifted to me by Scholastic Publishers US, exceeded my expectations with its emotional depth and powerful storytelling, earning it a well-deserved 5Ps rating on The Phantom Paragrapher. The story unfolds in 1941, just before the attack on Pearl Harbor, as thirteen-year-old Amy travels from Hawaii to Hiroshima to visit her family. However, the devastating events of Pearl Harbor trap her in Japan, where she finds herself conscripted into translating English radio transmissions for the Japanese army. Amy grapples with conflicting loyalties and the fear of internment camps in America, all while forging new friendships and slowly feeling a sense of belonging in a country now at war with her homeland.
