Our Beck Valley Books review of Island Fog by John Vanderslice
'a new and refreshing style'....

"A series of short stories around Nantuckett island. The stories are told over two hundred years starting in 1795.

The style of writing reminds of John Steinbeck and Conan Doyle, very unique and keeps the reader totally enrapt. As you follow the series the descriptive narrative paints an excellent image, the nostalgia involved in some of the tales reminds me of my childhood and as we move through the years, the changes in society and the movement of people it is very poignant. The novelist always leaves a twist to the end of the tale which provokes thought and let's you decide the possible outcome.

The interesting thing I found about this book is as we move through the ages people and their thoughts and morals stay the same even if everything else is changing around them. The historic and geographically knowledge and research the author has put into their writing has to be commended.

Interesting tales, descriptive characters, excellent places, makes an intriguing and thought provoking read done in a new and refreshing style, which I hope will lead to more stories. If you like good solid tales built around an interesting place with plenty to think and ponder about this is the author for you. "

Our Beck Valley Books Review - The Dance of the Spirits by Catherine Aerie'a very emotive book'.......

"Set in a time of war the story follows two people from the different ends of the political spectrum. To try and find her way in life a young Chinese woman goes off as a medical surgeon to serve in the Korean War where she sees and absorbs the real truth and results of warfare. On the other side is American Wes Palm and their paths collide with an amazing outcome. 

The true beauty of this novel is the insight of how tough and different it was for a Chinese woman to grow up and follow her own way whilst been dominated by a strict government regime. Also when people speak of war it's mainly always about the battles and the fallen but we tend to forget about the casualties and the people who tended to them without the appropriate medicine or equipment, the authors writing brings this horrible part of war to life with true reality. You feel that you are in the background of every scene. 

The narrative is told from two sides but in truth they both want the same outcome the killing to stop and peace to reign. As these two people lives become entwined we are reminded that they are the innocents and the real guilty parties are the powers to be who are fighting for they own greed. 

This is a very emotive book which will touch every single feeling you can have and will make you think differently about war and the after effects of it. 

The first book I have read by this author but I am definitely looking forward to future publications."

When Officer Bud the PR face of the Boston Police Department is gunned down, his brother, Bogie McGruder, returns from Palm Beach for the funeral. Since the BPD is investigating the death of one of their own, Bogie believes his trip to Boston will be a short condolence visit and a chance to meet his secret love child.

But interacting with a family fueled by alcohol and mired in scandals, Bogie is reminded why he does investigations for his Boston based company from a computer in Florida. Although Bogie wants to contact his ex-lover, Bailey Hampfield, he’s reluctant to do so since Bailey dumped him four years earlier. Knowing that Bailey had his child after she cut him loose, Bogie ponders how he can establish a relationship with the three year old daughter he’s never met. While he thinks about it, Bailey gets in touch with him and asks for protection. Someone is trying to kill her.

By the time Bogie meets Isabella, it’s apparent that he still loves the mother and adores the child. Bogie tells himself that he’s not interested in the BPD investigation into Bud’s death, but he continues to be drawn into it while trying to discover who is attempting to kill Bailey. The investigations seem to parallel each other, then intersect and become intertwined. As the story develops, Isabella, a precocious child obsessed with martial arts, slowly becomes the focus.

The underlying theme of this mystery is lies. Everyone seems to be running on lies and half truths. The only pure and true character is The Girl in White Pajamas.

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."

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."
