Review for Magnolia Nights by Ashley Farley

Review for Magnolia Nights by Ashley Farley

 

 

 

 

Magnolia Nights is a wonderful story that takes us through three generations of women set in beautiful southern town, with large antebellum homes and a mystery to uncover all wrapped up together, and Farley’s writing pulled me in the start. After the few chapters, I knew this was going to be one of those books I couldn’t put down.

Ellie has recently inherited her Grandmother’s rather large estate in Charleston. She hasn’t seen nor heard a single word from this women since she was a child, so it was all really stranger to her. Now, Ellie doesn’t remember much from her childhood before she went to live with her father, and some of what she does remember though is filled …

Review for House Of Shadows by Nicola Cornick

Review for House Of Shadows by Nicola Cornick

 

 

 

 

The House of Shadows takes us through a story of three women, from three different times who have many things things in common even though they have never met. How could this not draw your attention, it certainly had mine.

The story is give to us from the 16th and 18th century and the present, and from these times we meet these very strong women. They might have come from these very different times, but have a lot more in common than you would think. The historical aspects of each time period were vividly described, especially Ashdown, but being that I an mot all that familiar with the 1600’s nor the 1800’s I did have a little bit of difficulty …

Review for The Silent Fountain by Victoria Fox

Review for The Silent Fountain by Victoria Fox

 

 

 

 
The Silent Fountain is a gothic and historical romance with a little bit of suspense mixed too. This house has some sinister things going on it. What more could I ask for?

Fox takes us back and forth between Vivien Lockhardt in the 70’s and Lucy Whittaker in the present, and it done so with such grace that it flows right into each other. Never confusing, just completely enthralling and with a pace that kept me turning the pages to see what was going to happen. Vivien is one those characters who you love, but then you want to hate all at the same time. In the end, I found Vivien to be a wonderful woman, and felt her story deep …

Review for Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKelle George

Review for Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKelle George

 

 

 

 

I had a 5th grade teacher who loved Shakespeare so we read a lot of his work, and this being a retelling of Much Ado About Nothing made me so curious about it and the era of time is one of my favorites. So, Speak Easy, Speak Love was a fantastic and fun read for me.

Review for The Blind by A.F. Brady

Review for The Blind by A.F. Brady

 

 

 

 

I am a sucker for psychological thriller, and being that it would told from with in a mental institution, there would be some creepiness to it too. I did get a psychological thriller, but it was also about a young woman story of self discovery.

Sam seemed o be an exceptional therapist, and was known as the Dr. that if you couldn’t help the patient, send them to her. But, Sam had her own issues that were weighing on her down. First off, the hostile and unhealthy relationship with the boyfriend and then the excessive drinking. Those things alone, would weigh anyone down, but she still maintains her job and does it well. It isn’t until the new patient Richard …

Review for Depth of Lies by E.C. Diskin

Review for Depth of Lies by E.C. Diskin

 

 

 

 
Depth of Lies was a fantastic read. These women were all so very different. They were moms, wives, but they all were all the best of friends. And even though they had all moved away from each other one by one, they stayed in touch. And when Shea drowned, they came together once again, but her death didn’t make sense to them. Shea’s life on the outside seemed perfect, but it wasn’t. From what it seemed none of their lives were. They all had their own secrets. And this story takes us through their secrets and they affect each of them, and learning what their friendships endured.

There are quite a few women in this, so I’m going to mention …
