Secret Mission

Monday, July 28th, 2014: We’re off on a super secret mission. If we told you what it is, we’d have to kill you and nobody would want that! *cue the evil book reviewer laugh*

Lawless and the Flowers of Sin

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014: We had planned to review Lawless and the Flowers of Sin by William Sutton.  That isn’t going to happen though – agh! It fell victim to the closing of an imprint, so it no longer has a publishing date, and I didn’t know that until this morning (7/29/2014). I had tweeted with the author and believed he had found another publisher for it, or planned to self-publish, but evidently that hasn’t worked as hoped. When/if this novel is finally published, we’ll review it. Click here to read our review of Book #1 in this Victorian mystery/thriller series, Lawless and the Devil of Euston Square.

Skin of the Wolf

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014: We’re reviewing and hosting a Giveaway for Skin of the Wolf by Sam Cabot. Livia, Thomas and Spencer meet up again in New York after Spencer is attacked by a wolf the same night a Sotheby’s employee is murdered near a rare Iroquois mask. They soon find themselves embroiled in a battle based on Native American lore that could be reality. And why are avid collectors and the Catholic Church involved? Click here to read our review of Book #1 in this genre-bending series, Blood of the Lamb.

The Book of Life

Thursday, July 31st, 2014: We’re reviewing The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness, the conclusion to the bestselling genre-bending All Souls trilogy. Diana and Matthew have come back from the past only to face new battles in the present that could be their doom. Can they finally find the missing pages to Ashmole 782 and unlock its mysteries to stop this huge threat to their lives? Go to the Authors Reviewed tab at the top of this page and click on the author’s name and genre to read our reviews of the first two books in this wonderful trilogy, A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night.

paint colors

Friday, August 1st, 2014:  I’m going to play with paint. Seriously, choosing the new trim paint colors for the beach house is super fun, so I’ll be testing combinations to see which ones look best. I can hardly wait to see how it turns out!

Saturday or Sunday, August 2nd & 3rd, 2014: We’ll update this page with reviews and giveaways for the upcoming week, and post a new giveaway winner.
