Built to Last – Book Review

All Romance Reads

By Elizabeth Grace

Scarlett Deveareux may not have wanted to anything growing up the daughter of a judge and a socialite. But after the tragic car accident that orphaned her, it came to light that her father had bad investments, mortgaged the house and put the family into deep debt.

She’d attended college and pursued a professional career because that’s what a Deveareux did. With her parents’ expectations no longer bearing down on her, she’d decided to pursue her own dream-to run a successful bakery. The feeling of freedom had been accompanied with one of deep, aching loss.

The Magicians – Book Review

The Book Review Directory

I’m weirdly fond of Lev Grossman’s The Magicians and I can’t quite put my finger on why. It’s campy, and self-aware, and god help me I love it.

I first picked it up because I liked the look of it – one of those judge-a-book-by-its-cover situations that works out surprisingly well. Since then it’s become one of my favourites, and one of the few books that I actually reread on a regular basis.

All Romance Reads

Justice Delayed by Patricia Bradley

It’s been eighteen years since TV crime reporter Andi Hollister’s sister was murdered. The confessed killer is behind bars, and the execution date is looming. 

But when a letter surfaces stating that the condemned killer didn’t actually do it, Detective Will Kincaide of the Memphis Cold Case Unit will stop at nothing to help Andi get to the bottom of it. After all, this case is personal: the person who confessed to the crime is Will’s cousin.

They have less than a week to find the real killer before the wrong person is executed. But much can be accomplished in that week–including uncovering police corruption, running for your life, and falling in love.

The Queen’s Daughter – Book Review

The Book Review Directory

The Queen’s Daughter is the first book that I have read about Joan, the daughter of King Henry II and Queen Eleanor of the Aquitaine. It is the world where England, France and Toulouse battle each other for lands that are taken and retaken from each over the course of centuries.

If you have seen the mini series, The Tudors or Reign, or have read C.J. Sansom’s historical fiction series set during the reign of Henry VIII, then you are familiar with the court politics and intrigue that engulfed England and France from the time of King William I in 1066 forward. Each generation was taught to fight to expand the reach of their empires, trust no one, and lust after all.

Ancillary Justice – Book Review

The Book Review Directory

Ancillary Justice by Anne Leckie

This book one of a three part series. Read this book first, then the next two, for Ancillary Justice sets up the other two. The world created by Ann Leckie is not one that will be familiar to most readers, even those who read primarily science fiction. Part of it is Leckie’s writing style that to this reader seemed a lot like Ayn Rand. It is terse prose that admits little feeling even though there is a lot of emotion under the surface. I felt detached from the narrative the entire time, though it is well-plotted and the characters, some human, some machine or robotic-like, some a mix are complex.
