The Wisher’s Well by Bhavna K.
Is taking a break before University a good Idea? Was their location right for them? Could they live the moment with ease or did the sensation of regret unveil a dark secret?
Each country picked randomly is just like craving for a boon from a wish well, which may or may not be fulfilled. Dive into a thought and make a wish. Which destination you choose is a secret that promises you a miraculous experience.
Four compassionate and aspirant teenagers,’ Yuna Lee, Joben Saito, Alec Burley and Amporn Srisai decide to travel for two weeks to four countries in Southeast Asia. They don’t know which country they will travel to. Each of them makes a wish.
It’s a gamble and they pick up a chit randomly, just like opening a fortune cookie. The fortune cookie may bring them to tinsel town or may tickle the spirits for a reality check. It’s fascinating to know which country brings a new story and what each teenager discovers from traveling to that country.

Our Beck Valley Books review of Have No Shame by Melissa Foster has just been posted, here is a snippet....."The book will have you hooked as you follow the tense rollercoaster story and the shocking and chaotic civil right era along with the sympathisers who help to try and make it a fairer and safer place to live for everyone. This is quite a powerful and emotional story that at times made me feel pain, sadness and even anger at the way life was so different then and how people were treated so horrendously. Yet the story is written in such a wonderful way that there is also so much beauty, love and respect that it will really pull on your heart. I felt myself wanting to shout out to Alison but had to remind myself that her world was completely different to the world we now take for granted and decisions could not be taken at will.Truly a highly recommended emotive read that won't just leave you after you have turned the last page. It will certainly leave you wanting more and I cannot wait to read much more from this author."

JUST RELEASED .......
DESOLATION by Travis Simmons
This book was a brutal reality to what it is like to battle an addiction to pain killers. I have to say that there have been people in my own life that have battled with this very addiction and it can lead to something even worse. The honesty in this book was something that took me by surprise because a lot of people do not like to recognize pain killers as being an addiction or something that needs attention. This book was a deep insight into the nasty world that is out there.
I love books with mystery and a little bit of crime to them. My favorite author of all time is James Patterson and this book hinted a little bit to his style of writing with the darkness that I have grown to love. Most women are into the sappy love story but I love a good dark story every now and again.
This book was not disappointing to say the least and although it was meant more for male readers, in my opinion, I would recommend it to anyone!! This is not a light hearted comedy. It has no gush to it. Like I said before it does a great job in describing the underlying hazards that people do not know about when it comes to drug use. There are many people that get addicted to pain meds that they are prescribed in the first place to help with pain. To get off of these sometimes is hard. My cousin is fighting a disease and has to be on pain killers every day. He has sort of, in a sense, become addicted to them. I know that he could not live without them physically.
Motorcycle gangs are something that I know absolutely nothing about, but the author did a great job describing what goes on in them from an outsider’s perspective. There are many types of twists throughout this whole book and I was definitely not right half the time for what I thought was about to happen.
This was an intense story that was an in-depth read into a terrible situation that is going on in this country. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone to give it a try, but especially to the male reader base out there that does not like all the sap. I would give this a four out of five for a rating because I was intrigued all the way through!
