Book Review - Late for Fate by Lori M Jones

Late for Fate - Lori M Jones

An intriguing story line about how a near death experience can shape events in your life. When Jezebel is involved in a train crash and pulled out of the wreckage by a mystery man her whole life is turned upside down and to fulfil her hearts desire she has to find him regardless of the outcome. The author takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions and along with it the trial and tribulations of love and the secrets that it holds.

The story is an easy one to follow with short chapters which I always prefer.  The characters carry and display true human feelings which is a tribute to the wrirters style.

An enjoyable read which any mystery/suspense reader will enjoy.

New hot #romance release from Melissa Foster​!
Crushing on Love (The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor)
HEARTS COLLIDE when a feisty city girl crashes into Steve "Grizz" Johnson's rural mountain retreat.

 

"Another intensely passionate story in the Peaceful Harbor series. Just when I think Melissa Foster cannot create more intense, more compassionate heroes, she releases another book. Steve is a wonderful character - deeply passionate about the environment -- and Shannon." reviews Romance Reader​

 

"Shannon is an exuberant character. I love how there were times when she could move from topic to topic, bouncing from one idea to another, and her bubbly personality came through the words on the page. I love how confident she is in her feelings for Steve, and the risk she takes to see if he feels the same."

Book Description
Steve Johnson is living his life’s passion watching over the Colorado Mountains as a ranger and wildlife consultant. But his peaceful life is upended when overzealous and insanely beautiful Shannon Braden flits back into his life after returning from a brief trip home to Maryland. He thought his attraction to her was under control—after all, she’s only in Colorado temporarily, and he doesn’t do casual affairs.

 

Shannon’s return to Colorado has as much to do with the game of cat and mouse she and Steve have been playing as it does the data she’s been hired to collect. But despite her efforts to explore the undeniable heat simmering between them, Steve’s intent on keeping his distance.

 

When a ranch abutting the national park goes up for sale, Steve will do whatever it takes to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. And when all his attempts fail, he’s left with no alternative but to follow Shannon’s guidance into the online world he abhors in order to raise the funds. The more time they spend together, the deeper their attraction becomes, and a game of cat and mouse turns into an unstoppable connection. But when Shannon’s assignment comes to an end, will it mean an end to them, too?

 

CRUSHING ON LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

NEW Cosy #Mystery Release Today! Book Review

Hutchins Creek Cache - Deborah Garner
NEW Cosy #Mystery Release Today!
Hutchins Creek Cache by Deborah Garner - Author
 
5***** reviewed and recommended by Miki's Hope
 
"Paige MacKenzie is definitely a magnet for finding troubles--and has a penchant for not letting go until the mysteries that fall into her lap are solved. Of course she is a journalist--so that might have something to do with it. Her long distance boyfriend, Jake Norris, again has to save her. At least this time he managed to take a vacation and meet up with Paige in the little town of Hutchins Creek where her current writing assignment is. Will Jake finally convince Paige to take the plunge and move to his ranch--he has been trying for a couple of books in this series (I loved them all).
 
But who caused the antique train in the museum to start--then derail? The answer to this surprised me--I really didn't think of it--but then again------------And who stole the double eagles from the mint all those years ago? Will this age old mystery get solved?
 
This book is part of a series which I would recommend to anyone--each can be read as stand alone--but I think you would enjoy them all!"

Excerpt - Intrinsic Encounters by K. M. Oddeck

Intrinsic Encounters by +K. M. Oddeck
'a mixture of Fantasy, Science fiction, and Urban'

It's midsummer. David Elbert's final semester at university comes to an end. For this fresh Engineer, the daunting task of saving a company from imminent disaster soon pales in comparison to the multimillion-dollar stash of drugs and money found in a luxurious property he comes to own. His nerves start to singe. Criminals come out of the wood work. Escalation is imminent. When police and drug enforcement agents pop onto the scene, all hell quickly breaks loose. At this point, pure survival instinct takes over.

REVIEWS REVISITED - Scattered Links by Michelle Weidenbenner
 
"A deeply moving story of an innocent young girl called Oksana, through no fault of her own, lives in a poverty stricken part of Russia called Kazak. Living with her pregnant alcoholic mother and her aunt they are driven by hunger they steal and beg what they can, her mother and aunt turning to prostitution just to keep a roof over their heads. I say a roof but where they live is a cold concrete derelict squatter. When her mother gives birth, knowing that her aunt cannot afford another mouth to feed Oksana has to make a desperate heartbreaking decision just to survive. Following which without any warning or farewell to her mother, her aunt drags both Oksana and her baby sister to an orphanage with absolutely no intention of returning.
 
With feelings of abandonment they enter a world of further lost hope with only one intention of being reunited with their mother. Life in the orphanage is harsh but in time her baby sister Natalie is adopted by an American couple but Oksana rushes in tears to the meeting not to be parted with yet another family member, luckily the couple see the heartbreak and make the decision to adopt both. But can Oksana overcome her feelings of betrayal to her mother and allow the love of this family to be part of her? Can she believe in what they say and trust them, after such a harsh upbringing in Russia?
 
The way the author progresses with the story compelling, you cannot fail to be touched by reading this book. You are drawn to Oksana, feeling her desperation throughout this truly emotional read, the sadness of a child in a horrid and cruel adult world is immense. Yet joys of hope as her life takes a positive turn if she could only accept the genuine kindness from the people around her.
 
What I didn't realise while reading the book is the whole story is based on the author's own adoption experiences, bringing the strong harsh truth of Russia's orphans to light, which inspired her to write this brilliant work of fiction.
 
Completely and utterly recommending this high quality read by, you will not want to put the book down."

Book Review - Late For Fate by Lori M. Jones

Late for Fate - Lori M Jones
SUSPENSEFUL HOPEFUL DEADLY
She was seeking love...
They were seeking revenge...
*** Late For Fate by Lori M. Jones  ***
'There is a bit of comedy and I found myself laughing--and the next moment holding my breath--hoping all would turn out all right.' reviews Miki's Hope
 
"Jezebel should have been named Calamity. She just could not seem to catch a break--first the Metro train she was on collided with another--luckily someone helped her escape death--and as luck would have it she also met the man of her dreams--but then lost him! He found her--but----his ulterior motive was not in her best interests. Her friends kept trying to tell her--but would she listen--NO. Plenty of red flags which she decided to ignore---listen to your intuition people!!! Like me--she was a KLUTZ--forever tripping etc etc etc. Well, she found her dream man and it turned out to be a nightmare in the making--one that put her on another collision course with death.
 
There is a bit of comedy and I found myself laughing--and the next moment holding my breath--hoping all would turn out all right.
Her family and friends are delightful, as is she----now the bad people and there are a couple of those--well--I hope I never meet up with anyone like them!"

""Who attacked Kyara's Mom and put her in a coma-and why? This mystery is set up with a very important environmental question-one we should all be aware of-what happened to all those PCB's that were dumped before strict regulations were in place. PCB's do not degrade and they do cause cancer. If those PCB's leech into the water. What would unscrupulous companies do to hide this?

 

Kyara enlists the help of Ryan who is also looking to figure out something for himself. Kyara is still hoping to find out who her biological father is and Kyara's grandmother, who she once loved and adored has just been released from prison-----

 

How this all ends--well I didn't guess the ending!! So much going on--you just have to read this one."

REVIEWS REVISITED - The Sibylline Oracle / The Symbolon - Books 1 & 2 of The Sibylline Trilogy by Delia J. Colvin

The Sibylline Oracle - Delia J. Colvin

REVIEWS REVISITED - The Sibylline Oracle / The Symbolon - Books 1 & 2 of The Sibylline Trilogy by Delia J. Colvin​ 'When you think that they have finally reached the light at the end of the desperate tunnel the author weaves her magic again and your left holding your breath for the next installment!!'.......

 

Review for Book 1, The Sibylline Oracle
"I actually fell in love with this book, it seems to gently overtake you and you just keep wanting to read more and more. It took me a little time to figure out who was who at the beginning as I'm not used to fantasy and mythology but my preferences in which genres I now read have certainly changed thanks to this book.

 

The book follows a pure depth of love between Alex and Valeria that has actually lasted centuries. Alex is an immortal who is desperate to be reunited with his beloved Cassandra. Unbeknownst to Valeria she is really the many times re-incarnated Cassandra who is cursed and unable to live past her 27th birthday. Cassandra was the most powerful Sibylline Oracle, a prophetess who had powerful visions, even more powerful than that of Apollo's own oracles, the man who found and favoured her. This led to strong jealousy of others especially Aegemon, Apollo's oracle, who she had taken the place of and who was set on revenge.

 

The story begins as Valeria's soul partner Alex, her Symbolon, rescues her for a near death experience just like he had tried so many times in the past. Valeria is extremely attracted and mesmerized by Alex and out of character agrees to go away with him as a birthday treat to meet his family and found out more about the secrets Alex wants to share with her. I did at this point feel Valeria's character was being extremely naive and wondered if that would really happen but that is the only tiny niggle I had about the whole read.

 

Alex and his immortal friends who were now his family had to try and rid Cassandra of her curse and try to make her immortal, like them, once and for all. At the same time trying to help Valeria realise that she was really Cassandra without frightening her away. I really enjoyed reading the connection between them all and the love they all shared and found myself so intrigued to find out more.

 

How can they stop this curse once and for all? How can they stop Aegemon in his hateful tracks? Now Valeria trusts them and realizes who she is and what's at stake how can they chance it all going wrong?

 

Quite an edge of the seat read with twists and turns keeping you on your toes and I truly loved it and couldn't wait to read the second book."
