Penelope ( A Madcap Regency Romance ) (The Fairweather Sisters Book 1) by [Wylde, Anya]

Book Description:

Leaving behind the rural charms of Finnshire, Miss Penelope Fairweather arrives in London with hope in her heart and a dream in her eye. The dowager, no less, has invited her for a season in London, where she will attempt to catch a husband.

Thus begins our heroine’s tale as she attempts to tackle the London season with all her rustic finesse. Unfortunately her rustic finesse turns out to be as delicate as a fat bear trying to rip apart a honeycomb infested with buzzing bees.

What follows is a series of misadventures, love affairs, moonlit balls, fancy clothes, fake mustaches, highwaymen, sneering beauties, pickpockets, and the wrath of a devilishly handsome duke.

My Review:

Penelope is a romantic historical comedy with plenty of witty dialogues and hilarious scenes. It's all about the delightful countrified Penelope and her misadventures as she enters the London season for her first time. Other wonderful characters are a silly goat named Lady Bathsheba, a kindred spirit named Lady Anne, and the scowling Duke of Blackthorne, named Charles Cornelius Radclyff. It's my favorite historical romance of 2017 and I laughed out loud throughout the book. I wouldn't be surprised if it remains my favorite. 



The Fall of Lord Drayson (Tanglewood Book 1) by [Anderson, Rachael]

Book Description:

When Colin Cavendish, the new Earl of Drayson, informs Lucy Beresford that she and her mother need to vacate the house they've called home for the past two years, Lucy is fit to be tied. They have no money, no relations they can turn to for help, and nowhere to go. How dare the earl break the promise his father had made to the Beresfords without so much as a twinge of conscience?

Fate plays her hand when Lucy discovers the earl unconscious and injured in the middle of the road. When he awakens with no recollection of who he is, Lucy seizes the opportunity to teach the earl a much-needed lesson in humility and tells him that he is nothing more than a mere servant. Her servant, in fact.

And thus begins the charming tale of a pompous lord and an impetuous young woman, caught together in a web so tangled that it begs the question: Will they ever get out?

My Review:

The Fall of Lord Drayson is a wonderfully inventive tale where Lucy Beresford, the late-vicar's daughter, turns the tables on Colin Cavendish, the Earl of Drayson, by telling him a wicked lie. She finds him unconscious and discovers that he has lost his memory. When they have a heated exchange of words, she informs him that he is her servant. This lie gets her into quite a lot of emotional trouble, especially when she changes her opinion of him. At one point, she suspects that he knows the truth. Now what will she do? This was an entertaining read with a happily-ever-after.


The Earl's Unsuitable Bride
FREE on Amazon Kindle!

The Earl's Unsuitable Bride: A Sweet & Clean Historical Romance (The Chase Brides Book 1) by [Royal, Lauren, Royal, Devon]

Book Description:

"The Earl’s London Bride” is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of “Amethyst” by Lauren Royal. From a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

London, 1666: Amethyst Goldsmith makes dazzling jewelry, but her future isn’t nearly as bright as the pieces she creates. Though custom dictates she wed her father’s apprentice, her heart rebels against the match. In mere days Amy will be condemned to a stifling, loveless marriage, and she sees no way out—until the devastating fire of 1666 sweeps through London, and tragedy lands her in the arms of a dashing young earl who knows a diamond in the rough when he sees it…

Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, has his future all figured out. He’s restoring his crumbling castle and estate to its former glory, and the key to its completion is his rich bride-to-be. But the Great Fire lays waste to his plans, saddling him with trouble—in the form of a penniless shopkeeper’s daughter with whom he’s most inconveniently falling in love…

My Review:

The Earl's Unsuitable Bride is an exciting Historical Romance full of adventure and turmoil. The protagonist is a working-class female named Amethyst Goldmsith who is passionate about her trade as a jeweler. There is trouble in her world and falling in love with Colin Chase, the Earl of Greystone, doesn't make things easier. A proper lady would never be allowed to work, no matter how talented she was. Colin has his own problems and needing to marry for money is one of them. Can love win when the odds are stacked against them? This is a great story with interesting characters and surprising adventures.

Julie has only had her dog for two weeks, but she is already causing all sorts of problems. For starters, she is missing! Julie suspects the school bully Danny must be behind it.

Excerpt:

My puppy, Shakshuka, disappeared. It happened when my dad was away on a business trip and my mom was in one of her worst moods ever because Max and Monty had both just had their vaccinations and they both had reactions and they didn’t sleep all night. Max and Monty—I called them the Munchkins for short—were babies and twins and also my brothers, and everyone knew that if there were two babies in the house, no one was going to pay any attention to a dog, even if she was only a baby herself.

At night, I lay awake in bed and I was cold, and I remembered that once on TV I saw pictures of a hungry dog that was really skinny whose family went on a vacation and left him tied to a tree. And they said that the SPCA couldn’t take care of all the dogs that were abandoned by their families. And I thought about Shakshuka, who was gone and might be tied to a tree at that very minute, hungry and missing me.

The next morning in class, Brody told me there was no way that Shakshuka had been stolen. “No way, Julie!” he said. “Why would anyone bother? You could get five dogs like her, with spots and stripes, for less than ten dollars.” Or maybe he said you could get ten dogs like her for less than five dollars. Brody said things like that sometimes, but most of the time he was okay. When Max and Monty were born, he said that was it, no one at home would ever pay attention to me again, and when I cut my hair short, he said it was ugly.

I turned my back on Brody and pretended to listen to Adam. He sat at the desk next to mine and spent his whole life telling these crazy stories.

Adam said, “My father won f-f-fifty thousand, do you get it? In the lottery. He’s g-going to buy me an i P-P . . .” People didn’t always listen to Adam because he stuttered, and they didn’t always have the patience to wait until he got the word out. This time Brody tried to help him finish his sentence.

“An iPod?”

“N-not an i P-Pod, you idiot. An i P-Pad.”

Brody called Adam “Ad-d-d-dam” because of his stutter, and because he liked to be annoying. But he was still my friend, and that was just how it was, and anyway, there were lots of kids worse than he was.

I cried about Shakshuka during morning recess and Danny laughed at me because that was Danny, that was just the way he was, and Duke also laughed, obviously, because Duke was Danny’s number two. But at the time I didn’t know that they had anything to do with Shakshuka’s disappearance and kept telling myself that maybe they were just being mean, as usual.

That Danny, everyone was afraid of him. And they’d have been nuts not to be. It was bad enough that he was the kind of kid who would smear your seat with glue and laugh at you when you sat down; that he and his friends would come up and offer you what looked like the tastiest muffin you’d ever seen, and when you opened your mouth to take a bite you discovered it was really a sponge. But none of that was important. The problem was, he remembered everything that anyone had ever done to him, and he made sure to get back at them. The day before Shakshuka disappeared, Mrs. Brown asked us what a potter did, and Danny jumped up and said that a potter was a person who put plants in pots, but Mrs. Brown said that was not what a potter did. And then I raised my hand and said that a potter was a person who worked with clay and made pottery.

Danny, who sat right behind me, leaned forward and smacked my head, and I said, “Ow.” It wasn’t too bad, but the teacher saw him and she wrote a note he had to take home to his parents. That shouldn’t have been so bad either, but later, when school got out, he grabbed me in the yard and kicked me in the leg. I went flying and crashed into the seesaw, where I banged my other leg as well.

Danny said, “If you hadn’t said ‘Ow’ before in class, the teacher wouldn’t have given me a note. Now because of you I’m suspended. That was my third note.”

Our school had this system that every time a kid hit another kid, he got a note he had to take home to his parents, and if it happened three times his parents had to come to school and the kid got sent home. My mother said it was mainly a punishment for the parents, who had to miss a day of work and come to school.

I could have told on him for kicking me in the yard as well. My bag flew off my shoulder and landed right in the middle of a puddle, and Mom was really angry at me when I got home because we had to take out all the books and leave them out to dry and we had to wash the bag. I really could have told on him, but there wouldn’t have been any point. It would just have meant another note for him, another kick for me.

Thanks but no thanks.

In the evening, when the Munchkins went to sleep, Mom took one look at me and burst out laughing and said she wished that you could buy a doll that looked just like me, with scratches on her right knee, black dirt under her fingernails, and a mosquito bite on her cheek.

“It’s not a bite, it’s a bruise,” I told her. “And anyway, who would buy a doll like that?”

“I would,” said Mom. “But what happened to you? Take a look at your legs—how on earth . . .”

“Ow! Don’t touch.”

“You look as if you were in a fight with a tiger.” That was so close to the truth that I blurted out the whole story about what happened with Danny. And I was really sorry I did that because that was the reason Shakshuka disappeared. Mom spoke to Mrs. Brown and she must have told her I was black-and-blue after Danny pushed me because the next day at school Mrs. Brown took me aside and told me that I had to let her know whenever something like that happened because otherwise Danny would just keep on hitting me, and other kids too, and we had to put a stop to it. Mrs. Brown meant well, but I knew that when it came to Danny, I was on my own.

Later, at the end of the day, Danny caught me again, this time when I was right by the gate. Maybe someone saw me talking to the teacher and told him. Suddenly I was lying on the ground with my face in the dirt. I must have shouted because Danny told me to keep quiet.

Then he said, “Tell me what you told Mrs. Brown!” “Let me get up!” I yelled.

“First tell me what you told her.”

“Let me get up!” My neck was all twisted, but somehow I managed to turn to the side and I saw two first graders walking out of the building toward the gate.

Danny must have seen them too because he let me go, and when I stood up he looked at me and started laughing, probably because of the dirt on my face, and I decided I’d had enough of this jerk. I saw red, no matter where I looked I saw red, and without thinking about what grown-ups always taught us—that we shouldn’t hit back because whoever hit back would be punished just like the one who started it—I threw a plant at him.

At the entrance to our school there was this huge plant. The nature teacher once told us that it grew so big because it always got water from this pipe that dripped down into it, and also because it was in a protected corner.

It was a shame about the plant, it really was. And it didn’t even hit him. It crashed to the ground halfway between us. Then Mrs. Brown came. And without even thinking I told her that Danny knocked me down and then threw the plant at me.

“But it didn’t hit me,” I said, and I looked Danny straight in the eye to see what he’d say.

Danny said I was a liar, but Mrs. Brown took one look at my dirty clothes and she believed me. And because of me he got into serious trouble. They didn’t only make his parents come to school and suspend him for a day—after the incident with the plant they also told him he’d have to start seeing this really horrible counselor every Wednesday. The kids who knew him said his office stunk of cigarettes and he was a real bore.

That was why Danny found a way to get back at me. He said, “Just you wait.” That was exactly what he said: “Just you wait.” And I did wait because I knew him. But Shakshuka didn’t wait and she couldn’t have known how to wait for what ended up happening to her.

Why you need integrity to write children’s literature
and why Julie’s cat is evil – by Galia Oz

Creating a living and breathing story and building a complete, convincing, three-dimensional world around it; portraying rounded and thought-out characters; writing without it seeming like you are trying too hard; writing a story that seems to have always existed but never put to paper.

How does one do that? My first answer: I have no idea. I can recognize beauty when I see it, but I don’t believe in a magic formula. I only know how to try to write well. My second answer: You need to have talent to write well, but that’s not enough; you must have integrity.

About ten years ago, I published a short children’s book in Israel about a group of kids, written entirely from the perspective of Julie, the owner of Shakshuka, a little dog with big adventures. The book quickly became a series that has sold 150,000 copies thus far, and has been translated and published in France, Spain and Brazil. The first three books in the series were recently published in the United States as one book, under the title Dog Trouble.

I'm not sure I was able to do half of the things I mentioned in the first paragraph. If only... At any rate, I hope I write with integrity. In other words, the protagonists of my books are not perfect in any way: Julie is jealous of the new popular girl who recently arrived at her school; insecure Effie is jealous of almost everybody; cynical Brody mocks Adam's stutter; Danny is a bit violent at first, although the conflict between him and the other children takes on more a sophisticated form later in the series; and even the cat adopted by Julie’s is described as ‘a really evil cat.’

And yet Julie and her friends are brimming with joie de vivre and drive, and a sense of confidence that allows them to be playful and inventive and imaginative. They thrive in an imperfect world with evil cats – which means they can come to terms with problems that don’t necessarily have an immediate solution.

True, there is also hostility. Many times, hostility exists alongside with love. Anyone who thinks it is possible to raise children in an environment free of hostility or conflict is simply lying to themselves. You cannot spare children pain; you can only spare them literary representations of it.

Here, I return to the second answer I gave to the question: Integrity. Integrity is vital not only for a writer who hopes to establish a three-dimensional reality in his writing but also for the children reading it. Otherwise, in the name of political correctness, children are told that someone who behaves well will always be rewarded, that the wicked are always punished, and that the rejected will without a doubt have some sort of curative experience. There is no limit to the manipulative practices of well-intentioned adults in children's literature. There is an underlying desire to “improve” the child, to socialize him, to impart a life lesson, to hide and protect him from the real world.

The point is children have an inbuilt lie detector. When you try to sell them a sermon dressed as a story, they shut down emotionally. They may enjoy the plot, but the moral will pass right over their heads.

In short, children understand nuance. They are able to empathize with complex characters rather than with saintly, stock characters. Simplistic messages and manipulation are an insult to their intelligence. When children are exposed to quality literature, they are likely to grow up to read quality literature. And most importantly: beauty has value in and of itself, and children, just like everyone else, have the right to enjoy it. Just as they have the right to read of evil cats without someone jumping to their defense.

Refugees (Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 1)

Refugees
Mud, Rocks, and Trees
Book 1

Refugees (Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 1) by [Denny, R.A.]

About the Book:

Title: Refugees (Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 1) | Author: R.A. Denny | Pages: 288 | Genre: Coming of Age, Fantasy, Adventure

Book Description:

"An epic journey of a lifetime." That's what three young individuals from three different corners of the world have dreamed about. They were destined for greatness since the moment they were born. But what if they don't want it? What if they're not ready? What if their desires no longer align with the prophecy?

The problem is, they have no choice. The star has appeared. Their destiny has already begun to unfold.

It's not the send-off that they've been dreaming of. Forced out. Banished. Raided. This wasn't how it was supposed to be. Now they must discover who they really are while embarking on the most exciting journey of their lives. One star. One impossible task. One chance to save the world they love.

FREE on Amazon Kindle!

My Review:

Refugees (Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 1) is a coming-of-age fantasy story fraught with peril. We meet young adult characters from different tribes with unique animal-like traits. They are on their own journeys following the same star. There's lots of violence and they are faced with different trials. There's also plenty of exciting scenes. Faith and destiny are two main themes in the story.

It took me several chapters of reading before I was hooked, mainly because I had to get used to these unusual characters, but by the end of the story, I wanted to read more! It has a cliff-hanger ending, so be prepared for that.

About the Author:
R.A. Denny

R.A. Denny

R.A. Denny started writing epic fantasy novels when, after watching the first Hobbit movie, she began excitedly spouting off information about C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien’s writer’s group called the Inklings and how their greatest fantasy novels were created. One of her sons commented, “We could do that.” She laughed. Then, he turned it into a challenge.

Her unexpected journey had begun. For several years, she continued her day job as a criminal prosecutor and escaped by night to the world of the Tzoladian Empire. Then, she decided to just do what she loved.

She completed writing her six book epic fantasy series: Mud, Rocks and Trees. The first three books, Refugees, Seekers, and Captives have been released. The next three, Warriors, Dreamers, and Deliverers will follow very soon.

R.A. enjoys ancient history, board games and LEGO. That’s the nerd in her. She rides horses, raised flying squirrels and lives with two cats. That’s the animal lover in her. Oh, and did I mention that she loves a challenge? That’s the adventurer in her.


This is my honest review. The price was correct at the time of posting. Please check as the price may change.

17th Birthday and a Linky

17th Birthday
and a Linky


My middle daughter, Samantha, turned 17 on Monday. I didn't take any photos of her, because she hasn't been well. She experienced 3 seizures over 2 days, which she never had before. On Saturday it was confirmed that she has epilepsy.

We had an early birthday breakfast celebration on Monday and then I took her back to the hospital where she had been undergoing tests that Saturday. It seems that one of the tests, the lumbar puncture, was causing her to have terrible headaches and nausea due to a lack of care by the nurses after the procedure. The nurses made her sit up after an hour when she was supposed to lie down for at least four. She did question them about it and also told them what the doctor had told her. We have emailed a letter of complaint. Now she is on bed rest for three days. At least she hasn't had another seizure since going on medication for epilepsy.

A Threat of Shadows (The Keeper Chronicles Book 1) by [Andrews, JA]


*********************


Isabell and the Dragon by [Skell, Jerry]

My Review:

Isabelle and the Dragon is a sweet historical romantic fantasy with a spunky heroine who knows that men can't be trusted. When Isabelle flees from her uncle, she is captured by bandits, but when a knight comes to her rescue, she accidentally knocks him unconscious and then ties him up just in case! Isabelle's fun adventures have only just begun and she meets a dragon along the way. It's an entertaining story with great characters and a happily-ever-after.

Book 1

Half-Blood Dragon: Book One of the Dragon Born Trilogy by [Lee, K.N.]

My Review:

Half-Blood Dragon is the first book in the Dragon-Born Trilogy. It's a page-turner of a story with lively characters, unique adventures, great world-building, lots of dragons, and plenty of twists to keep you surprised and on the edge of your seat. The romance is bold, but not erotic. It has a cliff-hanger ending, so be prepared to want more!


These next two book reviews are from
previous years. I wanted to share them
with you, in case you missed them.



Cora and the Nurse Dragon by [Burke, H. L.]

My Review:

I was excited to pre-order H.L. Burke's book, Cora and the Nurse Dragon, after reading and reviewing the middle grade reader, Thaddeus Whiskers and the Dragon. I thought I could it read it to Amanda who is almost 8 years old, but it's more suited for older kids and for people like me who are young at heart.

I read it easily within two days. It was lots of fun. H.L. Burke artfully whisked me away into another world of her imagination that comes alive and feels real. It is different to our world, but very similar too where some kids are bullies and some kids are just wanting to live their dreams, and sometimes those dreams can also be a little misguided. The adults (mostly parents of the kids) have important roles in the story too. The main characters are two girls with different strengths whose friendship transcends the barrier of class based on income.

The pace of the story is charged with lots of discovery, adventure, danger, and more. It is steampunk fiction set in a time like the 1920's. Another steampunk work of fantasy by H.L. Burke is Beggar Magic.

Cora and the Nurse Dragon is geared towards a female audience. The topics the characters deal with are very mature and for that reason I recommend this book for girls from age 10 right up to young adults.


Dragon's Curse
Book 1

Dragon's Curse (The Dragon and the Scholar Book 1) by [Burke, H. L.]

My Review:

I had so much fun reading Dragon's Curse that I finished it in one day! The pace is set in the very first chapter. The story moves quickly with plenty of witty dialogue, interesting characters, an intriguing plot and more!

We are introduced to a cunning dragon that not only talks, but is also merciful. The damsel, Shannon, is mentally strong. She's quick to rush into things and hates being overlooked. Shannon and the dragon develop a strong bond.

You never quite know who the bad guys are in the story. Sometimes you guess correctly, but sometimes you get surprised. Even the plot, as it unfolds, keeps you guessing as to the outcome and it doesn't disappoint.

I recommend this book for young adults, ages 12 and up.
