Review: Lola

Title: Lola Author: Melissa Scrivner Love Release Date: March 21, 2017 Rating: 3/5 Stars Synopsis: The Crenshaw Six are a small but up-and-coming gang in South Central LA who have recently been drawn into an escalating war between rival drug cartels. To outsiders, the Crenshaw Six appear to be led by a man named Garcia . . . but what no one has figured out is that the gang's real leader (and secret weapon) is Garcia's girlfriend, a brilliant young woman named Lola. My Review: While this wasn’t the type of book I would normally read, I appreciated the fierce and powerful main character who has to fight for every crumb of respect and deserves all of it. The book is gritty and has a lot of unsa

Review: It's Always the Husband

This book has some great attributes and an interesting story line but it was lacking in one major area. The characters. I didn't like a single character from the book. The three main female characters were all lacking in major ways and none of them grew or changed as the story progresses. Which is saying a lot since the story jumps about 15 years into the future.

I still wanted to know what happened and if it really was the husband! I gave the book 3 out of 5 stars and I would say it is definitely worth the read. *I recieved this book for free

No Charm Intended is the second book in the Cora Crafts mystery series by Mollie Cox Bryan. I hadn’t read the first book before beginning this one and although there were a few mentions from the first book that I didn’t get, the book was still plenty enjoyable.

The retreat brings together a mixed group of woman of all ages and backgrounds and teaches them the arts of wildcrafting – using things found in nature to make a variety of crafts from basket weaving to pottery. A damper falls the gathering when the nanny for one of the retreats leaders goes m

Review: Watching the Detectives

Watching the Detectives by Julie Mulhern is the 5th book in the Country Club Murders and it is a wonderful addition to the series. The story takes place in the 1970’s and follows Ellison Russell as she tries to figure out who killed her interior decorator in her study. This cozy mystery is both funny and a wonderful read. It takes into account social issues of the time and weaves them seamlessly into the narrative while also providing an entertaining read. Ellison is a windowed artist caring for her teenage daughter and dealing with an overbearing mother. The mystery is full of enough twists and turns and quirky characters to keep you reading late into the night. Overall I would highly recom
