Secrets of a Kept Woman 2 - Book Review

Secrets of a Kept Woman 2


The girls are back, well almost all of them. We are more centered on Shayla and what her life has become since her split with Titus and Lissa who is her best friend, now. And I got to say, she really ended up on top and was really showing it at the beginning of the books. On this trail of finding herself, she went back to school and is a doctor. I ...

BRAGG V1 by JACK LYNCH

Bragg V1 by Jack LynchMy rating: 5 of 5 starsI received a copy of this book via the publishers Brash Books, in return for an honest review. Can I just say that I cannot thank them enough for bringing these amazing books of the late Jack Lynch to my attention, I have to say that his books are amazing, well-written, and the characters so believable.This particular book has 3 of Lynch's amazing stories. His Bragg private investigator character gets himself involved in various cases and each one is excellent. I cannot pick a favourite out of these because each story is terrific, I could read the author's works over and over and over and never get tired of them.I have chosen Die for Me to write about because it was his last novel.I like Peter Bragg, he is a very likeable guy, but not without some issues. He was a reporter,...

Review - A Sip of Fear, by Brian Rush

A Sip of Fear, by Brian Rush, is a sort of contemporary urban fantasy set on the streets of Seattle. The year is deliberately unspecified, but you can easily imagine the events playing out today anywhere in the world. Having briefly lived in Seattle, part of the charm for me was the occasional sense of recognition of the places visited.However, the appeal of the book goes well beyond that. A Sip of Fear explores issues of spirituality and humanity, life and death, good and evil, and how these motivate men and women in rather different ways. Readers of Brian's blog will not be surprised, since these are matters he likes to explore. So there are occasional magical conflicts, but these are brief, and secondary to the main theme - human growth and development, on both the personal and collective fronts.Brian's writing encourages readers to grapple with deep issues for themselves, and...

Review - Chasm Creek, by Patricia Grady Cox

Cover - Chasm Creek
Written as one of “The Review Group” Review Volunteers, see http://thereview2014.blogspot.co.ukIt is a very long time since I read a Western. Back in school we had Shane as a class book, and from the same era (and I'm showing my age here) I was a keen watcher of the two television series The Virginian and The High Chaparral. But since those long-ago days I think I have only encountered the Western genre in films. To this British reader, coming across placenames like Rio Verde or Yuma evokes a feeling of going into a fantasy land, where anything might happen.So it was with an entirely appropriate sense of riding into the unknown that I started this book. There were familiar elements that you meet almost at once. There is the mysterious man with the shady past, the abandoned wife struggling to make ends meet for her family, the lawman balancing his sense...
