Book Review-The Hood Game-Shadow of the Brazen Head-JP Reedman

Thursday, February 29, 2024



I did it again--read the third in the series before the 2nd!! (Yes, I did the read the first!!) This is the 2nd in the series and it is action packed!! There is a bit of everything in this one. Magic, tension, a new woman for Robin and it does get violent!! The bad guy actually gets what coming to him--witchvraft was frowned upon in that day and age.

I really loved this series--history combined with fiction is always interesting. This author certainly knows how to combine the two so that you will never be bored!! I have read many of her books and have never been disappointed with any of them.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Robin of Locksley, Lord of the Hood, continues his mission to help the people of Sherwood against the oppression of the Sheriff of Nottingham, even though his wife Marian, wounded in body and soul, has left him for the safety of Kirklees Priory. Mourning her loss, Robin has become hard and embittered—the Summer Lord has turned into a Winter King. At the Merlin Stone, deep in Sherwood, San Tan the guardian fire speaks of one who is coming, who will shake the foundations of the young outlaw’s life. Change arrives in the form of Clarimonde, Queen of the Shepherdesses, a mysterious girl who begs the Wolfsheads to aid the people of North Yorkshire against pirates sent by the exiled Prince John. Robyn regains some of his old fire when he aids Clarimonde—but when she seeks to join the outlaw band he refuses and they part in anger. Clarimonde heads south on her own, leaving Robyn and his men to face a new, sinister threat from Eustais de Lisle, Sheriff of Nottingham. Seeking revenge, de Lisle has contacted a necromancer to help him defeat Robyn o’ the Wood. The sorcerer is given a corpse, a special corpse, to weave his dark magic—and from it he crafts the terrible Brazen Head. The Head can only speak the truth. The Head can Prophecy. The Head can track down the Greenwood King—even to London, where Robyn joins the doomed rebellion of the demagogue known to history as William Longbeard.

Book Review-Its Meow or Never-Patricia Fry

Wednesday, February 28, 2024



It is hard to imagine that someone would round up cats and bring them to the mountains--where danger lurks for them everywhere!! But someone was doing that. Olivia's and Rag's humans are bound and determined to save these cats. Of course they bring along Olivia and Rags without who they never would have had a happy ending for all concerned.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Rags and Olivia team up for a wild ride. Cats are wandering around where cats shouldn’t be, and Rags, Olivia, and their humans are summoned to gather them up and return them to safety. But their efforts are met with unforeseen obstacles, several of which bring another level of concern and danger to the rescue expedition. Where are the cats coming from? How did they get there? The answers are elusive as are the cats, which makes this a most difficult and perilous mission for every person and cat involved. Rags and Olivia stay on task, however, and lead the charge to a happy ending.

Book Review-Winnetka Road (Book 1)-J.S. Sheridan

Tuesday, February 27, 2024



You really won't beleive what happens in this book!! How someone's childhood can ultimtely affect a person. A psychological, mystery thriller at its best.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Paul and Cellina Farrell have it all: wealth, good looks, a beautiful baby girl and a mansion on Winnetka Road. In their world, money, power, and appearance are everything, so when Paul goes slowly insane, no one notices—except the baby nurse. But can she convince anyone of Paul’s insanity before he murders her and hurts the baby?

It’s the Swinging Sixties, and Paul and Cellina Farrell are the “it” couple on Chicago’s North Shore. He’s handsome, rich, and a partner at a prestigious law firm. She’s beautiful, brilliant, and leads the crowd in all things fashion, interior design and elegance. They live in a mansion on Winnetka Road with their baby girl, Simone. Their life seems picture-perfect.

But there is something dark and unnatural stirring beneath Paul’s smooth exterior.

Cellina doesn’t notice. She’s too busy with house renovations and trips to Paris, Palm Beach and Percocet.

Their friends don’t notice. They’re too blinded by the Farrell good looks, money, and standing in society.

But the baby nurse sees.

And little Simone.

Fa├žades are beginning to crack at the big house on Winnetka Road.
