Always Be Mine (Sweetbriar Cove, #9)

Review: Always Be Mine - Book #9 Sweetbriar Cove - Melody Grace - March 2019

One of the things I love when I read Melody Grace's books is the crossing over of characters, a lot like Abbi Glines does with her series. Having crossovers makes the reader more invested I find in the series as when you read the books you are reunited with old friends, and you smile as your mind flashbacks to the book you read with that particular character in it. The other thing I love is that though it is a series, you can read the books as standalones. In Always Be Mine, we meet Lila Moore who is hiding out from Hollywood after she left her political fiance at the altar. For her, she realized it wasn't true love, the tabloids, on the other hand, painted her as an evil heartbreaker and poor Justin. Lila has been busy hiding out in the small town of Sweetbriar Cove where she had once been before with Dash and Blake Callahan - from the Callahan series. While hiding out at Rose Cottage, the landlord Alice had hired Griffin to do Lila's gardens, but their first meeting isn't perfect as she squirts him with a hose and accuses him of being a paparazzi/stalker. Griffin at first glance thinks Lila is a lot like his ex-wife Ruby. As the book goes along though we read as Griffin starts to soften and him and Lila connect. What will happen though when someone leaks photos of Lila, and she feels that Griffin isn't supportive and heads back to Hollywood? Is this just a fling for Griffin and Lila or will forgiveness and moving on be in the cards and reunite the lovers together again this time for good?
Find out in Book #9 of the Sweetbriar Cove series "Always Be Mine" by Melody Grace.

Lumberjanes: The Good Egg (Lumberjanes #3)

Review: The Good Egg - Book #3 Lumberjanes Chapter Books - Mariko Tamaki/Brooklyn Allen - October 2018

It's time for Lumberjanes as I bring you the last chapter book in the Lumberjanes series, I did find it nice reading a chapter book for a change about their adventures rather than a graphic novel as the favorite thing about the books is that throughout the book it gives you a detailed list of some of the awesome badges that were mentioned in the story. In The Good Egg, Ripley is feeling a little lost without their friend Castor and the team spirit of the Lumberjanes is lacking morale. They need another challenge, something exciting. Therefore Rosie has invited on a former theatrical Lumberjane, and the cabins are being mixed up and have to perform a fairytale, but they also have to change the story up a bit. None of this boring original crap. While this is happening Ripley on one of her journeys found a nest of golden eggs and she nicknamed the baby egg Eggie. Someone has stolen the egg and Ripley is sad and depressed, now it is up to the some of the Roanoke and Zodiac cabins to save the egg from the tacky dressed Order of the Egg.
Meanwhile, Jen has trouble back at camp as a group of Griffins are also searching for their egg. It is said that Griffins love music, so can the other Lumberjanes back at camp led by Mal and Molly put on a fabulous show.  Can the Lumberjanes once again save the day? Find out in The Good Egg by Mariko Tamaki and Brooklyn Allen, and as the Lumberjanes sign off I bid you  "Friendship to the Max."

Review: The Line Between - Tosca Lee

The Line Between

Review: The Line Between - Tosca Lee - January 2019
One of my favourite topics to read about in fiction is about cults as I always find the idea of them quite fascinating, especially with those who have spent so many years in the real world, how easy it is for them to shed what they know and accept a new way of life in order to fit in somewhere in the world. When Wynter was a little girl, her mother moved their family to a cult called New Earth. Once settled in, the family found it hard to dissociate from the outside world especially Wynter who spent a lot of time in Pentinence. Over the years, her mother got sick and passed away, and the girls became orphans of the church. As the years went on their cult leader's original wife, Kestrel passed, and Magnus took on a new wife - Wynter's older sister Jacqui. The pair eventually had a daughter called Truly.As time passes and Truly gets older, and Jacqui focused her time on her daughter Magnus's interest moved over to Wynter. Jacqui knew she had to do something and planned to get Wynter excommunicated. During this time there is also a disease ravaging the world which is leaving patients with the symptoms of early onset dementia and turning them crazy. Is this the end of the world? Wynter gets a call from her sister who is now sick and discovers that the disease is all Magnus's doing. Can Wynter with the help of her new friends and some old ones too save the world from losing any more innocent lives? The Line Between was a good read and touched on a few topics from Cult Fiction, Thriller, Adventure, Science Fiction with the Disease and the idea of the apocalypse. The Line Between by Tosca Lee has something for everyone and readers will not be disappointed.
