Flying At Night by Rebecca L. Brown–Review-5 Shining Stars!

Don’t Miss Rebecca Brown’s Outstanding Debut Novel—Flying At Night. I absolutely loved it!

 

Wow, I can’t believe Flying At Night is a debut novel! This book is written with rich details, colorful characters, authentic dialogue, and a compelling plot. 

Flying At Night is told from three points of view, Fred, a nine-year-old boy with Autism, his mother, Piper, and Lance, Fred’s grandfather. My favorite was experiencing the world through Fred’s eyes.  This book is not only about Autism. It’s also about growing up in a toxic environment. Piper’s father, Lance, was a narcissist. He was cruel and abusive. He was also a famous pilot. The pain Lance caused his family is described throughout the book. Everyone had their limit, and after forty years, Lance’s wife had had enough.

Piper suffered from severe depression for years. Her father’s constant verbal and emotional abuse kept her down. Her brother left home as soon as he was able. Piper never found a way to fully free herself from her father. But, in the end, life had a way of righting itself. 

My heart broke for Piper when she thought that she might have caused her son’s autism. Piper had taken antidepressants during her pregnancy, out of necessity, not out of negligence. But the guilt she felt because of it, ate at her very soul. It took Piper a while to accept Fred’s diagnosis. She often made excuses for his quirky behavior. Piper didn’t want to see what was so obvious to others. 

I loved the professor who took Fred under his wing. He was kind, thoughtful and “got” Fred. This book put me on an emotional rollercoaster. I loved Piper and Fred from the very first page; Piper’s parents, though, not so much. 

I read Flying At Night in one sitting. I hated to put the book down for even a moment. The book is touching, beautifully written and a story that I won’t forget for a long time. 

Thank you, Berkley Publishing and Edelweiss, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

Other People’s Houses by Abbi Waxman–Review–4.5 Stars

Other People's Houses:::.jpg 850.jpgNew Humorous Release by Abbi Waxman.

Other People’s Houses–Coming 4/3/18!

 

Other People’s Houses is an engrossing, entertaining and well-written novel.

This book follows four families in a Los Angeles California neighborhood. Their trials, inner struggles, betrayals and most touching moments are depicted well in this story. My favorite couple is Frances and Michael Bloom. Frances was the designated carpool mom. She took the neighborhood kids plus her own three back and forth to school. Frances was the only mom who was overweight and not obsessed with her appearance. She was also the kindest most level-headed person in the group, and her husband, Michael, loved her, extra curves, and all. Frances was the star who held the neighborhood together, when one family on their street, began to crumble.

This book is all about marriage, family life, betrayal, consequences, and forgiveness. The writing in this book is witty and spot on. Frances is the main character, and her internal dialogue is absolutely hysterical. Although the story is poignant and the subject matter, serious, the author has a remarkable ability to lighten the mood, with humor. I loved it.

Thank you, Berkley Publishing and Edelweiss, for my advanced review copy.

Before I Let You Go by Kelly Rimmer–Review-5 Shining Stars

Before I let you go::.jpgDon’t Miss This Incredible Story!  Before I Let You Go by Kelly Rimmer –4/3/18!

 

Before I let you go is an incredible story about love and sacrifice, and the inevitable, agonizing heartache that comes, when a person, you love, is addicted to drugs. 

Lexie has been taking care of her sister, Annie, ever since their mother mentally checked-out. When their mother started to participate in life again, she joined a religious cult and, unfortunately, her daughters went with her. Lexie escaped the community, at the age of sixteen, but couldn’t take her sister with her. 

In the cult’s religious community, girls were not allowed to stay in school after the age of fifteen. At sixteen-years-old, they began to learn the duties for being a proper housewife. They were also given a job in the community. Women soon discovered that their thoughts and opinions were best left unsaid. In the home, they had no voice at all, their husband ruled them, along with any children they had. Lexie and Annie learned after experiencing their stepfather’s painful punishments that their mother would not come to their aid. Annie, because of her rebellious nature, suffered the most. Unfortunately, by the time Annie escaped, she was emotionally broken.   

At the age of eighteen, Lexie took on the full responsibility for her sister, Annie. She became Annie’s sole provider and guardian. Lexie did her best, for her sister, but Annie was difficult. She rebelled against anyone who tried to tell her what to do. Unfortunately, Annie ended up succumbing to the ultimate oppressor and crutch, heroin. Before I Let You Go is a must read. This thought-provoking book illuminates for the reader an accurate description of the addict’s cycle of pain and remorse, and the enablers bottomless pit of agonizing grief and guilt. 

Drug addiction touches practically every family in some way, directly or indirectly. And, Kelly Rimmer’s written account of what a tortured addict experiences, as well as the guilt-ridden family members, is spot on.

I loved every page of this superbly written, poignant novel. Every sentence moved the story forward in this book. There are no wasted words, no boring pages, and no fluff. Before I Let You Go is a quality read. This is the first book that I have read by this talented author, but it won’t be my last.

Thank you, Harlequin- Graydon House Books and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I absolutely loved it!

My Dear Hamilton by Stephanie Dray & Laura Kamoie-5 Shining Stars

My Dear Hamilton:.jpg 850.jpg

Don’t Miss This Brilliant & Unforgettable Historical Fiction Novel!

My Dear Hamilton, Coming 4/3/18

 

My Dear Hamilton is a compelling and magnificently crafted historical fiction novel. It’s the second one that I’ve read by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie. And, just like the first book, I devoured it. My Dear Hamilton is a five-star, beautifully written and well-researched read. Although I don’t normally read political books, these two, The First American Daughter, and My Dear Hamilton had me captivated until the very last page. Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie brought the founding fathers, and Eliza Schuyler Hamilton alive for me.

My knowledge of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton’s accomplishments, before reading My Dear Hamilton was limited, but now, after finishing the book, Eliza has my complete admiration. She was strong, elegant, and independent. Eliza Hamilton carried herself with grace, even in the face of humiliation, multiple betrayals, and several devastating losses. Mrs. Hamilton’s loyalty to her country and her husband was nothing short of extraordinary.

Eliza tells her husband’s story, his greatness, his flaws and his crushing secrets. Although this book is a historical fiction novel, it reads like a biography. I know I’ll be rereading it, while anxiously waiting for the next book crafted by these talented writers. Highly recommended.

Thank you, William Morrow Publishing and Edelweiss, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

New Release–The School For Psychics By K.C. Archer Coming 4/3/18!

 

 

Twenty-four-year-old Teddy Cannon is in trouble. She’s petrified of the possible consequences, to her and her family, if she’s unable to satisfy the loan shark’s demand. Teddy shudders at the thought of her innocent, loving parents, being targeted by the mob. So even though Vegas has banned Teddy from their casinos, she feels as if she has no choice, but to go and try to win enough money to pay off her debt. Teddy dons what she feels is a good enough disguise. It’s not.

It is at the casino, where Teddy meets the man who will change her life. After this mysterious stranger, saves Teddy from a couple of mobsters, using only his mind-control ability, Teddy decides to take him up on his offer; to attend the school for psychics. The thing was, though, Teddy didn’t think she had much in the way of psychic power; this man, however, knew differently. Unbeknownst to Teddy, the school she was about to attend, was really a training center for classified government work. The graduates from this school for psychics, become part of a secret task force, to protect America.

I quickly became engrossed in the story and its characters. I found them to be unique, quirky, and fascinating. School For Psychics is a well-written and enjoyable read.

Thank you, Simon & Schuster and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
