Better Not Cry
Rebekka Franck Book 8
by Willow Rose
Genre: Mystery, Supernatural Suspense
 

He stalks you when you’re sleeping. He kills when you’re awake…

Reporter Rebekka Franck is ready to escape the headlines for a relaxing
holiday with her family. Small town Cocoa Beach, Florida seems like
the perfect getaway for sunny days and silent nights. At least, until
a boy’s dead body is found stuffed in the chimney…
Rebekka learns that the boy is the latest in a long line of victims preyed
upon by a local legend. But a demon cloaked in red with sharp
fingernails who comes down the chimney can’t be real. Can it?
With the help of a local teen whose dad fell victim to the creature,
Rebekka investigates the growing body count. But as Christmas creeps
closer, the reporter must catch the demon before it checks her and
her family’s names off the naughty list…
Better Not Cry is a spine-tingling Christmastime horror story
featuring Willow Rose’s iconic characters Rebekka Franck and Jack
Ryder. If you like pulse-pounding scares, imaginative plots, and
hellish new takes on Santa, then you’ll love Willow Rose’s
holiday horror.

All We Want For Christmas Is You
Anita Maxwell
Publication date: December 20th 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis

Hayden Halloway wants to see her name in print when she gets out of college, preferably in one of the big five newspapers in New York. She has everything lined up to make that happen, except for that one perfect story to finalize her portfolio.

Christian, Vinnie, and Justin, first string forwards on the college hockey team, all have their sights set on Hayden. But a situation involving her best friend and the Puck Games – the hockey team’s sex rating competition – ends up setting them on a collision course that could leave more than their reputations damaged.

Eggnog, coffee dates, and the Winter Wonderland all have Hayden losing bits and pieces of herself to the guys. Will Hayden sacrifice her integrity for her heart, or will she ruin the guys chances at going pro and any chance they have of being together?

My 56 for this week is from:

Written In Blood

  by Layton Green

c8df8-add2bto2bgoodreads2bblack

Genre: Mystery / Thriller

My 56 from the paperback.

It was a white, two-story  farmhouse manor, encircled by a wraparound porch supported by ornate pillars. Atop the third story was a pyramidal tower that jutted upward like a wizard’s hat, complete with gargoyles cavorting on the downspouts.

As Preach pulled into the circular drive, two huge dogs bounded out of the house, followed by a man in his fifties wearing plaid dress pants and a velvet smoking jacket.

“Bela! Borris! Heel!”

~~~~~

Read on if you want to know more.

Synopsis

Detective Joe “Preach” Everson, a prison chaplain turned police officer, is coming home. After a decade tracking down killers in Atlanta, and with a reputation as one of the finest homicide detectives in the city, his career derailed when he suffered a mental breakdown during the investigation of a serial killer who was targeting children.

No sooner does Preach arrive at home in Creekville, North Carolina–a bohemian community near Chapel Hill–than a local bookstore owner is brutally killed, the first murder in a decade. The only officer with homicide experience, Preach is assigned to the case and makes a shocking discovery: the bookstore owner has been murdered in exactly the same manner as the pawnbroker in Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment.

With the help of Ariana Hale, a law student and bibliophile who knew the victim, Preach investigates the local writer’s community. As their questions increase, a second body is found, this time eerily resembling the crime scene in a famous Edgar Allan Poe novella. Preach and Ariana realize that their adversary is an intelligent, literate killer with a mind as devious as it is disturbed–and one or both of them may be his next target.

Dying for Space (The Sunblinded Trilogy#2)
By S.J. Higbee
Genre: Science Fiction
Age category: New Adult
Release Date: 14 December 2017

My Review

 So much happened in the first book, and I can’t talk about it now without spoiling this one for you. So I’m going to keep it simple.

A lot has changed for Elizabeth. Now a cadet officer serving at her father’s mercenary space headquarters, she’s torn about what to think. The other cadet’s either support her or despise her, and training is sometimes unnecessarily brutal. Everyone seems to have an agenda, including her father, and she can’t help but feel like a pawn to be used. Dangerous games are afoot.

This story moves at a fast clip. At times, bitter sweet, it’s also packed with action, conspiracy and danger that keeps the suspense building.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Running Out Of Space, and Dying For Space was just as fun. Lots of surprises and I can’t wait for more when the third book, Breathing Space, comes out. I’m a fan of the Sunblinded series and happy to recommend it.

4 Stars

~~~

Synopsis

Cadet Officer Elizabeth Wright just wants to make her father proud, while the mercenary warlord is looking for her to replace his dead family…

I finally get the opportunity to become a serving officer and fulfil my childhood dream, as well as get to know my biological father, General Norman. And when I first clap eyes on Restormel, the HQ of my father’s space mercenary outfit, it’s the most beautiful building I’ve ever seen.
But appearances can be deceptive. There are dark secrets hidden in the twisting corridors and blood-soaked cells beneath the training grounds and banqueting rooms. Secrets that seep out. Secrets that demand fresh victims, because whatever else happens, they can’t be allowed to see the light of day…

Read My 4 Star Review

Synopsis

Elizabeth Wright has yearned to serve on the space merchant ship Shooting Star for as long as she can remember – until one rash act changes everything…

I can’t recall whose idea it was. Just that me and my shipmates were sick of wading through yet another unjust punishment detail. So we decide to take ourselves off on a short jaunt to the lower reaches of Space Station Hawking to prove that fertile English girls can also deal with danger.

The consequences of that single expedition change the lives of all four of us, as well as that of the stranger who steps in to save us down in lawless Basement Level. Now I have more excitement and danger than I can handle, while confronting lethal shipboard politics, kidnapping, betrayal. And murder.

SJ HigbeeAbout Author S.J. Higbee:
Born the same year as the Russians launched Sputnik, I confidently expected that by the time I reached adulthood, the human race would have a pioneer colony on the Moon and be heading off towards Mars. So I was at a loss to know what to do once I realised the Final Frontier wasn’t an option and rather lost my head – I tried a lot of jobs I didn’t like and married a totally unsuitable man.

Now I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that I’ll never leave Earth, I have a lovely time writing science fiction and fantasy novels while teaching Creative Writing at Northbrook College in Worthing. I’ve had a number of short stories, articles and poems published – the most recent being my story ‘Miranda’s Tempest’ which appeared last year in Fox Spirit’s anthology Eve of War. I recently signed a publishing contract with Grimbold Publishing for my science fiction novel Netted, which is due to be released in 2019.

I live in Littlehampton on the English south coast with a wonderful husband and a ridiculous number of books. I can be found online chatting about books at my book review blog https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/ and you’re very welcome to pop onto my website www.sjhigbee.com and my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/sjhigbeeauthor/.

Welcome to The Kid’s Korner.

I decided to do this feature as I have so many great children’s books to share. From picture books, to books for beginning readers, to middle graders, I have plenty of fun ones.

Today I’m sharing my review of a delightful children’s book about unusual animals.

~~~~

Unusual Animals A – Z

by Heather Jones

Illustrated by Soraya Edmunds

c8df8-add2bto2bgoodreads2bblack

Genre: Adventure / Children’s Book

 My Review

Have you ever heard of a Sun Bear? How about a Jabiru Stork? Did you know a Crawdad swims backwards?  Heather Jones shares fun facts about unusual animals in her charming book Unusual Animals A – Z.

I remember spending so many happy times reading to and with my son. He’s now all grown up but that didn’t stop him from reading this with me. We had lots of fun discussions about the animals featured in this book and went on to talk about some others.

No matter the age of your kids, they’ll enjoy this delightful book and have fun while learning all about the animals. I’m an adult and even I learned something new.  My edition is a large hardcover copy. Your children can easily hold it on their lap to turn the pages. And the illustrations are cute and colorful.

There’s a section the author includes at the back of book. Each animal is featured in alphabetical order with a picture asking your child to give the animal a name that starts with that letter. I had fun coming up with quirky names and I bet your child will too.

You’ll want to keep this one close by as it will become a family favorite.

5  Stars

Synopsis

Award winning Unusual Animals A-Z is quirky, imaginative, educational and just plain fun. Whether it’s Andre the aardvark or Zena the zorilla, each of these twenty-six unusual animals is introduced to the reader with a colorful watercolor painting and a factual characteristic. While Bernie the bearded dragon likes to bask in the sun, Morris the manatee uses his small front flippers and massive body to body surf through the waves. Each animal has the same lettered name and when the reader reaches the end, he has twenty-six chances to come up with one of his own.
