Our Beck Valley book review of The Road Home by Kathleen Shoop 'another realistic and compelling tale from a truly magnificent author'....
Having read and been fully captivated by the first book in the Letter Series. The Last Letter, I have been eagerly awaiting this second book and couldn't wait to jump in. If you haven't read the first book don't worry as it can be easily read on its own as the author refers back to previous events, BUT in all honesty you will be missing such a touching story, the heart of what they have gone through whilst also getting to know the captivating Arthur family even more.
This is a story of love, hope, regret, forgiveness and realizing not everything is as you believe it is. The story follows a mother's love for her children, her despair at not being together and the hardships they have all faced whilst being separated. Jeanie Arthur is a character that reaches out to me from the pages and literally pulls away at my heart while reading her story, I could follow her journey of obstacles and how she overcomes them all day long. The time period is 1890's when status and titles were completely different from today's world. Now finding herself divorced from her addict & two timing husband, the world is massively different in how she is treated, penniless and unable to look after her two eldest children she makes the heart wrenching sacrifice to let them go and serve other families in the hope that they one day they will find a better life.
You will follow Jeannie, her daughter Katherine and son Tommy's determined story as they each tell their own tale after being ripped apart from one another throughout the book as it swaps between them as you read. Unfortunately for both Katherine and Tommy their life wasn't what their mother hoped and they both had to endure the harshness of the times they found themselves in. Will they finally be reunited?
I've got to admit I was constantly apprehensive whilst reading on, anticipating what could go wrong for them, holding my breath as I read. This was another realistic and compelling tale from a truly magnificent author, I am sooooo hanging on for more of the Arthur family's story, following on from where it left, hoping that it won't be too long.

NEW RELEASE Booker: Blood Ring by John W. Mefford | Author is 'a tale of greed, slave trading and murder' reviews Miki's Hope.....
"The first couple of sentences will catch you quickly and for me it continued throughout this novel! You really have to click in to read those first sentences!! Angie, Booker's assistant who is more like a partner in his PI firm has a sister--a wild child who has suddenly and mysteriously gone missing. Another girl is found horribly mutilated at a dump. Hoping the two cases are not related Booker is bound and determined to find the perpetrators. He is also trying to hold Angie together who is trying to hold it together but is scared to death for her sister.
Meanwhile Booker's daughter, Samantha is at the age where she is asking questions--you know the kind--the ones you really don't know how to answer!! It does bring some comic relief to this tale of greed, slave trading and murder.
Will Booker, Alicia and a host of other police and FBI officials be able to bring down this ring? Will Angie's sister be saved in time? And you won't believe who is really behind all this--and it is not who you will think it is!!"

BRAND NEW RELEASE - The Road Home by Kathleen Shoop is reviewed by Libri Amori miei 'The plot is uniquely and gorgeously developed'
"I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end! It 'so well-written, compelling that I could not put it down.
The plot is uniquely and gorgeously developed. Two children Tommy and Katherine were separated from their mother Jeanie when they were 14. Their life will be tough and difficult but all of them will fight very hard to reunite the family. The story is narrated by alternating the point of view of three main characters: a narrative choice really winning.
It's the second book in " The Letters Series" but you do not have to have read the first one to enjoy this one. It's the first novel I read of this author and I look forward to reading the others, especially the Last Letter."

Our Book Review of Hostage Of Paradox - A Qualmish Disclosure by John Rixey Moore 'An excellent read for anyone who is interested in militia accounts'......
"A personal story of one mans trials and tribulations in Vietnam. The novel revolves around the author and only the author, no politics are mentioned, from the training ground to the deployment how he felt and what his fears were.
A hard hitting account of a soldier whose job is just to follow orders without question. The vivid and excellent descriptions of the living quarters and jungle environment paint a clear image in your mind of what the soldier is facing, making you feel that you are there in the background.
An honest and open account of how one man feels when danger is all around and how you cope with the death of fellow soldiers who you have put all your faith and trust in to protect the camp where you live. An emotive and sincere story which will tug at your heart.
The truly remarkable thing about the novel is at no point are politics mentioned and is what this man had to do on a daily basis to survive. It also shows when you need help from other sources the smallest sign or gesture has the biggest impact. An excellent read for anyone who is interested in militia accounts and whats it is like to be at the forefront of a fighting campaign."

Our book review of Three Silver Doves by Deborah Valerie Garner
"A very easy light read which will appeal to everyone who likes mystery stories. The author has created a character who goes from strength to strength and has also used her experience of travel and knowledge of hidden away places to create an excellent storyline around a small town.
A local jewellery maker's work is being copied and this sends our reporter on a journey fraught with danger. The expressive writing is very vivid, easy to read and digest, making it a very pleasurable read.
Anyone who has read the Agatha Raisin series by MC Beaton will love this book and the characters in it. The perfect read to take on holiday or on a long journey, although even if you were to put the book down you would easily be able to follow the storyline again. This is one of 4 stories written by this author and I will be looking out for them to add to my reading list."

BRAND NEW heart-warming f/f romance, DISCOVERING DELILAH by Melissa Foster now released!Cali Book Reviews 'Melissa Foster has written this book beautifully'.......
A loving story of friendship, family & the courage to love
"My review for this book was due on July 9th, and I’ve gotta say, I’ve had the book done & review scheduled since MAY 29. After reading Catching Cassidy and reviewing it, I couldn’t wait to read Delilah’s story & learn more about her! I kind of wondered how well I would like the book because it is a female/female love story, and I’ve never read one before. I’ve gotta say though, this book was amazing! If anyone can pull off a f/f love story, it’s most definitely Melissa Foster! This story isn’t overly sexual, not overly descriptive, etc. If you’re worried about reading THAT, you don’t have to worry about it!
Delilah had a hard time “coming out” and felt guilty because her parents died right after she told them she was a lesbian, and all she could remember was the look that they gave her after she told them. For as long as she could remember, they had drilled it into her head that same-sex relationships were wrong. She felt that everyone else would look down on her when she officially came out. Her brother fully supported the fact that she is gay, which I think is completely awesome. I mean, my kids are 8, 6 & 2, but I fully think that if any of them came out and told me that they liked the same sex, I would be fine with it. It’s been completely normal in the time that I’ve grown up.
It honestly surprises me that still, in this day and age, so many people have issues with people in same-sex relationships. I have never had any issues with anyone in a same-sex relationship! Love is Love and you can’t help who you fall in love with, or at least, that is my thought on the matter.
This book picks up not too long after Catching Cassidy left off, so you don’t have to go back & try to remember certain things that are mentioned, as it’s pretty fresh in your mind!
Delilah had a long talk with her aunt one day while packing up her parents house, and she realized that it’s not just that her dad thought being gay was wrong, it was just that was how it was perceived in his generation.
I wanted to hug Delilah. I really did. After she first came together with Ashley, she didn’t want to come out to EVERYONE just yet. She was still worried about that. How do you carry on with this secret going through you? Being out in public with Ashley, she just knew everyone was giving them disapproving looks. (She was wrong)
Melissa Foster has written this book beautifully, and as usual, I’m super stoked for the next installment in this series."
