A Love Predestined

Ben Dedrick

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Three strangers are pulled together through the common bonds of tragedy in Ben Dedrick’s A Love Predestined.  All three have their own vicious brand of pain, but they’re all incredibly believable and likeable.  Dedrick’s writing hits you right in the heart and seeing Peter, Amy, and Grace struggle through their hardships was powerful and touching.  This one will make you cry but it’s well worth reading through the tears!

Angel of Mercy

Melina Druga

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Melina Druga takes us back with a fresh perspective on World War I in Angel of Mercy!  When her husband enlists for the war, Hettie Steward is happy to return to nursing, but she quickly finds that life during wartime isn’t as simple as it used to be.  Druga masterfully takes the time to build the atmosphere of the era and establish a compelling plot, but it’s Hettie that drives the story.  She was headstrong, likeable, and her journey is compelling.  This one’s perfect for anyone excited to see WWI with a different set of eyes!

Briguella

Vicki Fitzgerald

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Vicki Fitzgerald builds a wonderfully descriptive and tense crime thriller in Briguella!  When the deputy police chief asks reporter Kate Rivendale to go undercover in a serial killer case, she jumps at the job, but things quickly turn sideways leading Kate in a struggle of life and death.  I loved Fitzgerald’s descriptions and the powerful thread of tension driving the story to its exciting climax.  This one’s perfect for anyone that loves a good gritty crime novel!

Daddy!  When Will you be Home?

Lawrence Fong

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

As parents we sometimes get caught up in the day to day and start to forget about what’s important.  Lawrence Fong reminds us in his children’s picture book Daddy! When Will you be Home?  This book is a great heartfelt reminder to spend that quality time with your kiddos and can be used as a great family discussion piece about work and home life balance.  Fong’s writing is solid and the pictures are fun, making this one a great children’s book to be shared with the family!

The Cryptochrome Factor: A Timely Death

Roger David Francis

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Time is often running out for the hero in any murder mystery, but not so for Jeremy in Roger David Francis’ The Cryptochrome Factor: A Timely Death.  After his wife is slain, Jeremy gains the Cryptochrome, his means of stalking her murderer across time.  This book had great tension and moral implications and the time travel added a unique twist.  Check out A Timely Death if you like a good murder mystery with supernatural elements!

Sold

Blair Denholm

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Few can master the art of humor and tension as well as Blair Denholm!  Sold is a masterpiece of outrageous scams, gritty crime, and likeable characters (at least the ones you’re supposed to like).  Gary is in major debt to loan shark Jocko, but when some mysterious Russians show up he hatches up a scheme to end all that.  I enjoyed seeing how all the various storylines came together in one smash-bang end.  This one’s great for anyone who enjoys a good crime thriller tinged with humor!

Whispers in the Dark

Jordan Frost

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Enter the land of Midori, a corrupt empire ruled by an evil sorcerer in Jordan Frost’s Whispers in the Dark.  Imperial soldier Jensen is just trying to survive such a brutal place when he’s tasked with transporting sorcerer Solana.  In transit, Jensen is attacked by his own commander leading him and Solana on a quest brimming with secrets and action.  Whispers in the Dark built a cool world and had great twists, but it was the back and forth and the bond that grew between Jensen and Solana that was the best part for me!  Looking forward to seeing what the sequel has in store!

Reawakening

Kobina Amissah-Fynn

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Kobina Amissah-Fynn details death and its profound effects on life in Reawakening.  We get to see an interesting multi-cultural telling of a near death experience and the following effects as Kobina searches for the meaning and the ‘universal cause,’ a sort of revival of love for all humankind.  The message of kindness and love is my favorite part of Reawakening and Kobina’s perspective is enlightening.  This one’s a great one for anyone looking to do a little soul searching!

The Gates of Golorath

R.M. Garino

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

I absolutely love fantasy, especially well fleshed out worlds laced with cool action, so when I came across R.M. Garino’s The Gates of Golorath I couldn’t put it down!  A squad of angels must prove their worth by battling vicious monsters in an epic quest.  There’s a lot more going on but I wouldn’t want to spoil it as there are some great twists.  Fun characters, an awesome plot, and some slick writing makes The Gates of Golorath a must grab for any fans of Percy Jackson out there!

The Little Dog

Leslie W.P. Garland

Rating: 5 Shrimps!

Leslie W.P. Garland spools a thoughtful tale in The Little Dog.  Forester Bill is working in the middle of nowhere with a total jerk when they encounter a dog.  The dog quickly disappears leaving Bill to wonder who it belongs to.  The search for the answer to that question quickly reveals that there’s more to this story than meets the eye, that meets rationality as there is a supernatural element to it.  The Little Dog’s twist leaves you thinking, something I enjoyed, making this one perfect for anyone looking to do a little soul searching while being entertained!
