Eclair Goes to Stella by Michelle Weidenbenner is 'short and sweet – and funny!' exclaims Girl of 1000 Wonders.

"Claire (called Eclair) and her baby sister, Meggie, have to roadtrip from Florida to Indiana to live with their grandma. The first meeting is absolutely hilarious! Claire takes everything literally and is quite an insightful kid. The chapters about the first day being at Stella’s cracked me up!

Claire’s voice is clear and distinct, and spot-on for a child her age.

The story is very representative of our current culture, and speaking from a teacher’s perspective, very true about our kids. A lot of kids now are raised by another family member – a grandparent or aunt/uncle, and that’s what happens in this book. It also brings up the white elephant of mental illness in our society, and Claire shares a few comments about living with a parent who suffers from depression, which explains their visit to stay with (grandma) Stella."

Miki's Hope had fun reading Seaside Dreams by Melissa Foster and recommends the entire Love in Bloom series!

"It is such fun reading about these four friends. Bella is the steadiest one in the group, and the one who most who loves doing things they shouldn't really do. She has stayed at a job for 5 years etc etc etc in Connecticut. She made a slight mistake by dating a fellow teacher--oops--well it ended and although Bella didn't really care she decided to change her life around. She had always had a dream and she decided to follow it. 

Leanne had followed her dream and now had her own business year round at the Cape and a hunk of a husband! The only difference being--Bella decided she was NOT going to date-period end of sentence. Now we all know that can't happen in a Romance book! But if you don't find yourself laughing as she has not-a-dates with a really nice police officer who just also happens to be a single Dad of a teenager----Of course the teen gets in a bit of trouble but is a really good kid at heart and Bella wants to help (she is a high school teacher after all). 

Does Bella realize her dream? Does she finally decide that not-a-boyfriend is someone she can not let go of? Read this book to find out--actually read this series it is great!"

Our Beck Valley Books review of Edge of End by Suren Fant 'A really thought provoking novel' .......

"A really thought provoking novel which will make you think a lot about how you react and behave to others. The story begins with a man lost in the desert and his only way out of it is to head for the town. On arriving in the town he has no memory and has visions, each vision prompts thoughts of his past. He then meets a lady and a mentor who has been stuck in the town since he had died. The main character then realises that he has one last chance in the town to prove his worth before he is cast into hell. 

The book is very well written and uses the town and houses in it as the problems and the hurt the person has caused and to get through and redeem themselves to be given another chance. 

The message that I picked up from this interesting novel was why wait till it is too late to put things right, face and tackle the problem and move on. The outcome of tackling the issue may not to be your liking but at least it has been dealt with, giving you the freedom to tackle the next one with a clear insight and making the correct decision. 

A thought provoking novel which is very cleverly written around an issue that we all think about on a daily basis."

Our Beck Valley Books Review - The Point by G. Nykanen Author

"A very hard hitting dark story with explicit descriptions of a sexual nature as well as the dark side of a person's mind. The story revolves around Dane Buchman and his desires to take what he wants using any means possible, his actions impact not just on the people he hurts but the town he lives in as well.

The results of Dane's actions lead to a very good insight to how victims minds are affected by tragedy. The author portrays a story of innocence against evil and how difficult it is to get to the truth and prove it when it is one persons word against another.

I found this book to be a very gritty and enthralling read. I think the author was very brave in their writing and should be applauded for following their instinct to give the reader a real insight in how sociopaths think and react, this adds flavour and content to a good read. Due to the use of the explicit descriptions, which are essential to the story, it will not be to every readers liking.

On the other side of the tale is Dane's victim and the author again illustrates how with a lot of love and caring people around you and with their patience you can pull through life's trials and tribulations and live a normal life.

The Point is a dark thriller which will take you on a journey which will open your mind and want the bad guy to be caught and put your arms around his victim and protect her."

I Create Purty Thangs can’t wait for the next book in the Paradise Series byDeborah Brown - Paradise Series.

‘In Deception in Paradise, Madison is enjoying her new-found life in the house she inherited from her aunt. When her ex-husband Jax moves in without warning, claiming he has possible interest in the house, she knows that something is fishy. Before she knows it, Jax is accused of murder, and it seems that she is the only one interested in proving his innocence.

I think I would enjoy being friends with Madison. I just don’t get why she would be so accommodating to Jax, and especially Robert and Apple. Those two would be gone immediately. I’m a softie too, but that was overboard.

This second book veered away from Madison and Zack’s relationship a good bit, unlike the first one. I was expecting it to be pretty hot and heavy. But I did like that she and Fab were tight.

Overall, I really enjoyed the story. I hope it will address what Tucker wants from Aunt Elizabeth’s house. I have a feeling there is something there to be found.’

Our Beck Valley Books Review - The Girl in White Pajamas by CHRIS BIRDY"A murder mystery with excellent twists and turns"

"The characters and situations along with the relationships are very descriptive and superbly explained.

The novel is a little bit difficult to follow at first and the way the author manipulates the reader to keep going and persist by creating a little bit of mystique turns the novel into a great read.

The story brings our hero in contact with his past lover when he has to investigate his brothers murder this also bring him into contact with his family and a brilliant ride of emotion and feelings that you can relate to in your life.

The excellent emotive writing of the novelist is first rate. The brilliant building up of the detective and meeting his young daughter for the first time and the way that the relationship develops will bring tears to your eyes.

The read is fast paced and a real page turner with excellent situations and predicaments which add excitement to the story.

The main point that I enjoyed about this novel was the intensity and the really descriptive style of writing. The excellent humanisation of all the characters helped make the plot come to life.

If you like a good solid murder mystery with an excellent plot and characters then this is a book for you and I hope any other novels by this author are just as good or even better."

The Brand New Release of On Wings of Chaos by Travis Simmons is reviewed by A Gluten Free Mom.....

"This is a series that you really do have to read in order. Now, this is not a bad thing, but it does make for some parts that will leave you saying, “huh?”. So, if you haven’t already, grab the first couple of books, get yourself up to speed and then dive right in! Simmons has a knack for drawing me in and helping me get lost in his words. The worries of the day fade away as the Realm of the Earth fades into view.

The various story lines are beginning to converge, all save Amber’s. And it is Amber that I am dying to know about! Once again, I am left satisfied with the added aspect of the story that I have, but am left wanting to know what the heck has happened to poor Amber!"

Life as Leels 'LOVED' The Girl in White Pajamas by author CHRIS BIRDY.

'I will say, there are a lot of names and characters to keep track of and if you aren’t paying attention, it is easy to mix people up, but it was a fantastic read.

I couldn’t figure out how the title related to the story until about three quarters of the way through the book, but then it hit me and I loved it!

I cannot wait to continue on and read what comes next – and I certainly hope it contains the same characters because I really grew to love them… well, most of them!

There is nothing better than a good mystery where the ending is not predictable. As much as I tried to figure this one out, I was definitely thrown off and never would have figured it out myself if Rose hadn’t started down the right path.

If you enjoy murder mysteries, I highly recommend this book. The entire story will pull you in and have you hooked!'

Return to Love by author Kathleen Shoop 'is the 2nd book in the Endless Love series, but if you missed the first, this book can be read alone' saysCreative Southern Home

'I enjoyed the writing of Kathleen Shoop. She has a talent for putting you in the moment and you feel what the characters are feeling. She also describes the settings well and I felt like I had traveled to the Outer Banks, where the book is set. It is definitely a #romance novel filled with passion.'
