Entering Wildwood: A Review

FROM AMAZON: Entering Wildwood
Book 1 of the Wildwood Series
When photographer Clarissa Wakonda accepted a multi-week job helping her boss follow an up-and-coming band half the country away, there was no way she could have guessed everything that would happen. Recurring nightmares and getting lost in the woods were definitely not on her to-do list, and neither was the mysterious and moody Rafe Ravenswood. You can grab your kindle copy here.

However, as time passes, Clari finds herself grudgingly attracted to Rafe at the same time it seems someone else has taken to a dangerous game of cat and mouse that has life or death consequences.  She must decide who to trust before it's too late.

This book is intended for adult readers as it contains topics and scenes not appropriate for those under the age of 18.

MY REVIEW: 5 STARS Entering Wildwood is an exciting debut by author Ellie Winter. I was drawn into the story at once by the vivid imagery and descriptive voice. Compelling characters, well-written dialogue, and a fast-paced plot combine to make this a winning story. I like how Winter mixes emotion with action and doesn't let either one rule over the other when creating a scene. The emotional barriers between Clari and Rafe forming a relationship are believable, which is a testament to Winter's talent. While this is a paranormal romance, the characters face the same emotional battles we normal humans face. Winter wove an interesting tale filled with suspense, romance, a touch of sexy, and just enough dusting of mystery to make me want more. I'm eager to read the next book in the series.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A gypsy by nature, Ellie has called numerous states home over the years, has been lucky enough to visit multiple other countries, and her wanderlust is one of her favorite traits.  She writes about things that go bump in the night, discovering great love, and magic – sometimes all in one story even (just ask Clari).  Always planning her next adventure, these days Ellie calls the Midwest home with her husband, daughter, and their two cats.

Waterfall Effect: A Review

I recently read K.K. Allen's newest New Adult novel, Waterfall Effect. It's an amazing book, and one I think you'll enjoy. The cover is absolutely amazing. Plus, if you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read it for free! You can grab your copy here.

From Amazon: From RT Book Reviews New Adult Award Winner comes a riveting and intensely suspenseful small town mountain romance.

Tragedy had stripped Aurora of everything she once loved. 
But now she's back in Balsam Grove, ready to face all she's kept locked away for seven years. 
Or so she thinks.

Aurora doesn't expect her first collision to be with the boy she left all those years ago. 
The boy who betrayed her trust with no regrets. 
The boy who is no longer a boy, but a man with the same stormy eyes that swept her into his current before she ever learned to swim.

She'd thought he was safe. 
He'd thought their path was mapped out. 

Turns out neither of them was ready for the crash at the bottom of the cascade.

My Review: (5 stars) K.K. Allen has written a captivating story of love, loss, and finding the strength to try again. The prologue hooked me, and I kept reading long past my bedtime. I enjoyed each chapter and, as the story unfolded, found myself catching my breath as the suspense mounted. With well-rounded characters, vivid description, and a tightly-woven plot, Allen sweeps the reader along for a highly-enjoyable read. The infusion of philosophy and mental health issues that went along with the sinfully sweet and suspenseful plot will make this a re-read for me.

Life




Sometimes life gets in the way of everything. Know what I mean? You stay so busy with work and shuttling the kids back and forth that everything else seems to fade away. 

It happens to me on a regular basis, especially with blogging.

Sorry.

I'm going to take a minute to catch you up on things happening in my world. 

My youngest nerdling gets her braces off today!! Yay! I know she's excited. So am I. This is a big moment for my eleven-year-old.



I had to say goodbye to my sweet Belle-dog just a few days ago. She was fifteen and had lived a good life. It's hard to let your fur babies go when it's time for them to cross over the Rainbow Bridge, but I know she's not suffering any more.

I have a short story that will be included in the Crazy Fools Anthology! I'm thrilled to be included with such talented authors. The blurb, book cover, and preorder link are below.
